Satan's assigned role is that of an adversary, a role taken from the adversarial system found in a court of law. See Zechariah 3:1ff. Satan is the "accuser of the brethren" (Revelation 12:10) and a deceiver (John 8:44).
Satan was successful in counteracting the influence of Jesus Christ by leading the Jewish people to misjudge the nature and timing of the Kingdom of God and the role of the messiah, who was expected to liberate them from Rome.
The tactic used by Satan to mislead the Jews about the Kingdom of God was "successfully" employed by him to "defeat" the first messiah, Jesus Christ. Jesus was rejected by most Jews, including the Jewish religious establishment. I put the words successful and defeat in quotations because Jesus was ultimately in control of His own destiny and willingly tread the path to His death for our sake.
The "defeat" of Jesus resulted in the unenviable truth that Satan remained in control of earth. Revelation 12. Another messiah must appear to wrest Satan from the throne of this world. This messiah is the Good Antichrist. The primary method for doing so is answering Satan's false claims with truthful counter-claims.
Given the tactic was success that Satan used to mislead the Jews the first time around, it stands to reason he will use the same tactic or a variation the second time. Satan wants to deceive Gentiles regarding the inclusion of Jews in a literal Jewish covenant kingdom; just as he, Satan, before had deceived Jews regarding the inclusion of Gentiles in the spiritual nation of Israel.
In addition, like a skilled adversary at court, Satan seeks to deceive us regarding the role of the second of the Dual Messiahs; i.e., the Good Antichrist. This role has yet to be played in he establishment of the literal Jewish kingdom. Satan has taken advantage of a double meaning in the prefix "anti-", making it appear that the Good Antichrist is opposed to Jesus Christ, rather than acting on His behalf in Jesus' absence. There is a meaning in the prefix "anti-" that is peculiar to the first-century and has been lost to our modern way of thinking. In its first-century context, the prefix "anti-", when used in relation to a proper titled person, meant a "lieutenant" as in a Lieutenant Christ.
RACE RELATIONS IN PERSPECTIVE
In regard to race relations between Jews and Gentiles, Paul wrote, "Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. . . . God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew" (Romans 11:1, 2).
God has never abandoned the Jews.
The blindness (in part) that has befallen Israel is supernatural in origin for the sake of the Gentiles. The Jews were "cut off" from the Light of the messiah, Jesus; not from God. Those among the Jews who saw the Light were called the elect and were chosen to carry the Light to the Gentiles. This task is known as the Ingathering of the Gentiles.
There is a separate period known as the Fulness of the Gentiles, when the task of Ingathering will have been completed. This coincides with the advent of the second of the Dual Messiahs, which is known as the birth-pangs in Matthew 24.
The second of the Dual Messiahs leads the next event, the Restoration of the Jews. He reveals the truth regarding the messiah-ship of Jesus Christ, which when viewed from the standpoint of the over-arching prophetic plan of God, leads the Jews into a posture of national repentance. Jews and Christians then unite in their devotion to Jesus Christ and as one, form the Bride of Jesus Christ. Jesus then returns for His Bride. The second messiah, who is lesser than Jesus Christ, then vacates the world stage.
The first-century blindness that had befallen Israel appears to have a fitting counterpart in the latter-day experience of the Gentiles. Jesus Himself said that Christians who fail to recognize and assist the Good Antichrist, found among the outcasts, will themselves experience "outer darkness". Matthew 25:30-46.
The role of supernatural agencies in blinding the Jews regarding the work of Jesus Christ is temporary. The Jews were blinded (in part) for the sake of the Gentiles, so the Light of the messiah, Jesus Christ, would extend to them also.
Treatment of the Jews is a test of Christian fidelity. Individuals and nations will stand and fall in relation to this test. Christians who abuse the light of God's love by mistreating Jews or attempting to deprive them of their covenant birthrights, will in the end experience outer darkness, as commanded by Jesus Christ.
