The Antichrist by Arthur W. Pink
7. The Man of the Earth
|To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the Man of the Earth may no more oppress| (Psa.10:18). The |Wicked One| describes his character; the |Man of the Earth| defines his position. The one speaks of his awful depths of depravity; the other of his vast dominions. The sphere of his operations will be no mere local one, He will become World-emperor. He will be a king of kings and lord of lords, (Rev.13:7). When the true Christ appeared on earth Satan offered Him |all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them| if He would fall down and worship him. When the false Christ appears, this offer will be repeated, the conditions will be met, and the tempting gift will be bestowed (Rev.13:2). In consequence of this he shall be |the Man of the Earth;| just as later, Christ shall be |King over all the earth| (Zech.14:7).
