Antichrist

« Back to Glossary Index

The term antichrist appears seven times, all in 1st and 2nd John. He is an End Times fake messiah who aspires to, and likely achieves power over the whole planet. He has other names: Man of Lawlessness (2 Thess. 2:1-12), the boastful king (Daniel 7), leader who brokers a 7-year peace deal with Israel the breaks it (Dan. 9), rider on white horse (Rev 6:2), the first beast rising up from the sea, waging war against the saints and speaking proud blasphemes, receiving his powers directly from the “dragonSatan (Rev. 13:1-7). Many will bow to the Antichrist believing he is god because of his ‘powers’ (2 Thess. 2:9-11). Jesus tells us some are merely deceived (Matt. 24:5). Others will be forced into submission or killed. Revelation 19:20; 20:10 detail Antichrist’s end – he and the false prophet burn for eternity in the lake of fire! The antichrist is associated with the number 666 which is called the “mark of the beast.” (Rev. 13:16-18) [See Mark of the Beast.]
