Who is the Antichrist? I heard on a prominent Christian radio show that the Antichrist or beast of Revelation was the Roman Emperor Nero. What are your thoughts on the Anti-christ?

Jesus words are spirit. Walk in his Ways.
Jesus is the light and we were told to walk in him and his teaching.
The antichrist has come in peacfully and taken the kingdom by flateries.
He exalts his name and boasts and sits where he ought not taking praise from Jesus
There is only one that fullfills all this criterea. He sits at the right hand of God now and Israel listen to what he had to say more than the son.
You Know him by his brothers, Gaius(mother earth), Lucias(light bearer), Apollos(Apollyon greek god) Hermas(Hermes, another greek god) Olympus etc. see Romans ch16
Follow Jesus,dont look to the left or right, its almost 2 days since his resurection.

John in his first epistle (4:3)notes that the spirit of the AntiChrist is already working from the Apostlic time.

This is the spirit which does not acknowledge Christ and rebels against the righteousness of God.

This spirit of lawlessness will take a bodily form and reveal itself after the thing which is holding him back is removed out of the way (2 Thesssalonians 2: 1-8).

Well, if Nero was the antichrist, wouldnt that have ment that Christ would have comeback then?

No one knows who the antichrist is. We will not know until he reveals himself to the world. Everyone can make assumptions but no one doesn't know for sure who the antichrist is or when he will come.

the Anti Christs are them who dont accept Christ as Savior, them who reject God's 10 Holy Laws, them who trample on His Holy Sabbath and them who rely on works by Christ only and them not do anything to bring others to Christ.

2 John 1:7
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an ANTICHRIST.

1 John 2:18
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that ANTICHRIST shall come, even now are there many ANTICHRISTS; whereby we know that it is the last time.
1 John 4:3
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of ANTICHRIST, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

They are everywhere. Anyone who is against Jesus Christ and denies that he is the True God is the anti-christ.

1 John 2:22
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is ANTICHRIST, that denieth the Father and the Son.
If you deny Jesus Christ as the Son Of God,
you are considered an antichrist. You deny The Father and The Son. Islam denies Jesus Christ as the Son of God and denies Jesus Christ is begotten of the Father.

The discerned know who antichrist is. WE MEET HIM/HER DAILY.

In the bible 7 is used to denote perfection. The number 6 is less than perfect and when used 3 times stresses that thought. So 666 is showing that it falls short of perfection. John 2:18 There will be many antichrists not just one main person.
---Wesley on 4/5/07

666 does represent Nero Ceaser, but as an archetype. And the early manuscripts changed the number to match the name in whatever language his name was translated into. In Apocolyptic writing, the codes are designed to be clever, but recognizable to the reader (who would know the code). The Beast was the Roman Emperor, and Babylon was Pagan Rome, and the Whore was Jerusalem. Babylon as a name represents the enemies of God's people, Babylon became used as a recognizable archetype for the enemy.

Jack, that's what this show said except that the number 666 was his number in Hebrew not Greek. That Nero's name in Greek adds up to 616 and some manuscripts that were found written in Greek had the number 616 listed in Revelation instead of 666. The host said the difference in the numbers was so Greek speaking Christians did not have to know Hebrew inorder to figure out the Antichrist. Interesting... I wonder if we use both 666 in Hebrew and 616 in Greek, how many names would then equal both numbers?
---Paul on 4/5/07

Nero might have been a model for John's vision of Antichrist, just like his wife Poppea (a Jew who hated Christians) might have been the model for the Whore of Babylon.

NERON KAISAR adds up to 666 with the Greek alphabetic numerals.

I watch my thoughts for two reasons. I love God and I hate the Devil. It's not hard work to obey the Devil, it's hard work to obey God in everything. Following the Devil is taking the broad road, having fun, right on into HELL.
