How Can We Recognize the Antichrist?


What Does the Bible Say About the Antichrist?

The Bible has a great deal to say about the Antichrist, and not just in Revelation. Below we’ll compile a number of verses that talk about the Antichrist, and what we should know about him.

1 John 2:18: “Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour.”

For those unfamiliar with the study of typology, there are many types of the Antichrist. We’ve seen many antichrists come into the world such as Antichocus Epiphanes IV and Nero. Anyone who boldly opposes God and attempts to remove the mouthpieces of God is a type of antichrist (confirmed in 1 John 4:3). But the Antichrist (with a capital A) has yet to be determined.

1 John 2:22: “Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son.”

The Antichrist is of the Devil, who is the Father of Lies. We will see no truth within him.

Daniel 7:25: “He shall speak words against the Highest, and shall wear out the saints of the Highest, and shall think to change the times and the law, and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.”

He will attempt to change the times and holidays. We saw this occur with Antichos Epiphanes IV before the Maccabean revolts, and we will see it again in the End Times.
