Antichrist is found in 1 John 2:18, 22 - 2 John 7 - there are many "antichrists" who will come before the "ANTICHRIST".
1 John 4:3 speaks of the evil power which already operates in anticipation of the ANTICHRIST
A false Christ (in Matthew 24:24 & Mark 13:22 is different from the AntiChrist. A false Christ does not deny the existence of the Christ but pretends to be the Christ.
The Antichrist denies the existence of the Christ and of one true God.

Anti- means against, so it's a person who is against Christ. THE Antichrist will be a world leader who enter the temple and blaspheme God and proclaim himself to be THE God; he will erect an idol of himself about 100 feet high by about 10 feet wide, and it will be animated, and he will make it a law that you must worship him or his idol or else die. The letters of his name add up to 666, as does Nebuchadnezzar's.

The Antichrist is a counterfiet Christ. He is the Son of Satan, just as Christ is the Son of God.

Antichrist - The great and blasphemous antagonist of Christ, thought by early Christians a appearing before Christ's second coming. (secular dictionary)

1 John 2:18 (verses 18-23)

Deceptions of the Last Hour

"Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour."

Easy to identify him when he does appear. He is someone claimed to come from Davidic ancestry. Born like a king and taken as Messiah who anyhow accepted by all in Israel. Bible records he suffers death but was revived. (Computer chips rendered it possible) He is able to perform miracles perhaps ability to heal all sicknesses like Jesus. The left behind to take care not to wear his 666. Faithful believers would be raptured ahead of his arrival. Not ruling out DNA to cause a monster to be antichrist.

Janice: cont.
Christ warns that before his 2nd coming, "Antichrist" will impersonate him claiming to be the Messiah (Math. 24:4&8.)
A"man" who will oppose and exhalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshipped and HE WILL SET HIMSELF UP ...PROCLAIMING HIMSELF TO BE GOD.How can you recognize him? Read: 2 Thes. 2:8-10. avoid being deceived, embrace the truth for it will protect you.

The word has 2 meanings:
1. 'against Chris' someone/some power opposed to Christ.
2. 'instead of Christ' someone/some power who/which takes the place of Christ.
Early CrCh= counterfit Ch. (not true believers, liars who denied Messiahship of Jesus) John 2:22/2nd John 1:7./1 John 4:1)
also preaching a "different gospel" 2 Cor. 11:4& 13-15. So there have been and still will be many "false prophets" so watch out! Math 7:15. To be cont.

I responded to Xanthi's question regarding "666" and just asked her to contact me personally if none of the answers on here satisfied her. I offer the same to you.
