Definition: Antichrist means against or instead of Christ. The term applies to ‘all’ who deny what The Bible says about Jesus Christ, all who oppose his Kingdom and all who mistreat his followers. It also incudes Individuals, Organizations, and nations that falsely claim to represent Christ or that improperly ascribe to themselves the role of Messiah.
Does The Bible refer to only one Antichrist?
Is the coming of the antichrist reserved for some future time?
1 John 4:3 But every inspired statement that does not acknowledge Jesus does not originate with God.+ Furthermore, this is the antichrist’s inspired statement that you have heard was coming,+ and now it is already in the world.+ (That was written near the end of the first century C.E.)
Individuals and nations that oppose Christ as King or that themselves falsely claim the Messianic role.
