The Seed of the Woman And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel. (Genesis 3:15) THE RABBINIC WRITINGS And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between the seed of thy sons, and between the seed of her sons; and it shall be when the sons of the woman keep the commandments of the Law, they will be prepared to smite thee on thy head; but if they forsake the commandments of the Law, thou wilt be prepared to wound them in the heel. Nevertheless for them there shall be a medicine; and they shall make a remedy for the heel in the days of the King Meshiha. (Jerusalem Targum.) As the incarnation of evil Satan is the arch-enemy of the Messiah he is anti-Christ. The light which was created before the world, was hidden by God beneath His throne; and to the question of Satan in regard to it God answered: "This light is kept for him who shall bring thee to shame." At his request God showed Satan the Messiah; and when he saw him, he trembled. fell upon his face, and cried: "Verily this is the Messiah, who shall hurl (bruise) me, and all the princes of the angels of the people" down even into hell. (Pesikta Rabbati. 3:6. ed. Friedmann, p. 161, b.) The messenger of the Covenant "Behold, I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He is coming," says the LORD of hosts. (Malachi 3:1) THE RABBINIC WRITINGS The LORD is the King Messiah; He is also the Angel of the Covenant. (Rabbi David Kimchi) The LORD is both the Divine majesty and the Angel of the Covenant, for the sentence is doubled. (Rabbi Aben Ezra) The LORD may be explained of King Messiah (Mashimiah Jeshua fol. 76) What is to be the manner of Messiah’s coming, and where will be the place of his first appearance? He will make his first appearance in the land of Israel, as it is written, ‘The Lord whom ye seek will come suddenly to His Temple’. (Rabbi Moses ben Maimon) What are your thoughts on this?

Once again you have pulled this out of context. You do not even know what you are reading about. You just found the words antichrist so you assume it means the same thing as the christians do. This is so twisted out of context that I cannot even fix it without writing several pages which the Lot will not allow. This is Bunk!!! Why would you do this? Why do people take things out of context just to smear. Rabbi Moses ben Maimon was a very learned man, but you have taken advantage of this with no knowledge of your own. My thoughts? You don't have any!

Maybe you are assuming a whole lot? I have not written anything out of context. You will have to trust me on this, If like you say I was to in one post put everything together it would be so long that nobody would read it, Trust me, I will bring everything to its proper end. You how ever believe I am trying to lead people to a conclusion that supports the main ideas of the modern day Christian movements. I must first show the people the scriptures and writings to show them what the writing are about. I believe you are jumping to conclusions about my intent. I am not going to smear any one You are free to make comments along the way if you feel i have made an error. But remember this, This post is about Messiah, not a divine messiah, but a king, I think maybe you are so jumpy that when you hear people discuss this and bring these writings up you assume it is to confirm the Christian concept that has been twisted by Rome, Let them read what the Jewish Scholars have said about these scriptures, really you are going to have to trust me, I am not trying to bring shame on anyone.

Why Israel? What is so special in Israel? The whole world is God's. If I was God, I would not send the Messiah to a certain part of the world , thus ignoring the rest of the world. The Messiah comes, but from within, not from without. The Messiah is not a person, but a prsence, a consciousness.
