The anti-christ in his mind, self-exalted himself above all that is God. He who glories (boasts)and commends himself is not approved, but only whom the Lord commends. When people think of themselves to be something, when they are not, then they deceive themselves. Sitting at the best place at a wedding when someone more honorable has also been invited and the one who invited both come and ask you to give up your place for the other, then you will be shamed while you look for the lowest place.
2 Thessalonians 2:4 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
2 Corinthians 10:17, 18 17 But “he who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” 18 For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends.
Galatians 6:3 3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
Sitting near head of table
Luke 14:7-9 7 So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them:
8 “When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him; 9 and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place.
“It is the power of God to give salvation for everyone who believes” (Rom. 1:16).
