According to 1 John, the Antichrist is
anyone who denies that Jesus is the Christ, that he is the unique Son of God,
or that he has come in the flesh.
The biblical term, however, usually refers to a particular
person in whom that denial reaches its ultimate expression and who will play
a key role in the final stage of history.
It really bother's me that "people" do NOT believe that this world is going to end and that there is
such a person in which is going to deceive so many millions of people!
God's own elect will be deceived....the "anti-christ" is a dangerous evil person and he will destroy
and fool millions of people... and some act as if, oh well! Don't be fooled
by this corrupt, evil person, because if, you do , you can say good-bye to
heaven and seeing Our Lord Jesus Christ!
The word "antichrist" occurs
only four times, all in John's epistles
2 John 1:7 - 11 Many deceivers have gone out into the

1 John 2:18 refers also to "many
antichrists." John the apostle assumed that his Christian readers knew
about the Antichrist and had been taught to expect his coming
1 John 2:22 And who is the great liar? The one who says
that Jesus is not the Christ. Such people are antichrists, for they have
denied the Father and the Son.
23 Anyone who denies the Son doesn't have the Father either.
But anyone who confesses the Son has the Father also.
The presence of many antichrists, in fact, indicated that the
end times had arrived.
But John warned that a final Antichrist would yet make an
Like the others, he would deny that Jesus is the Christ. John
further described any person or message that did not "confess Jesus"
as being of the spirit of the antichrist (1 John 4:3).
In his brief Second Epistle, John referred to "many
deceivers" who would not acknowledge the coming of Jesus Christ in the
flesh (2 John 1:7).
Such a person, he wrote, was "the deceiver and the
antichrist." 666 In the book of Revelation, the
mark of the beast is the number 666. Each person in
that day will have to receive the mark on his or her forehead or right hand
in order to buy or sell anything.
