From what I was reading earlier, it's believed one video like this can net 10s of millions of dollars in ad revenue alone. If that's true, then he's only capable of stuff like this because everyone is watching him believing he can. The revenue from one expensive stunt being widely seen enables the next expensive stunt and assures it will be widely seen. A kind of ouroboros loop of money and influence, as long as people keep looking and believing in it.

Being Christian myself, I feel like a big thing he's missing to count as the Antichrist is the whole "claiming to be a divine being" thing. You know, the whole shtick of the Antichrist.
I don't think he's claiming the healing of said blind people is a supernatural miracle, while the entire reason the Antichrist would do such miracles is to claim it's supernatural.
