  • Primarily because he will need to be a leader in the physical realm. The fact is most societies are male dominant and it would be the easiest way.  Also, since Christ was male then it would also seem to follow that the anti-christ would also be a male.

  • Good point. No reason it couldn't be a woman. ... I myself feel that women have more spirituality available to them and this tends them toward higher morality than men, but our society really does a number on girls' minds, so that they become estranged from their natural talents.

    I am looking at the potential for the anti-christ to incarnate in a computer network, perhaps like artificial intelligence (the Bible could never have described such an eventuality, after all) - or at least to be using it as an instrument of deception.
    (No, this does NOT mean that I think the internet should be avoided or shunned or feared. I just have a vigilant attitude about the "fruits" of the internet, that's all)

  • because the bible is intentionally misogynistic and rewrote most female figures so that they were submissive

  • Under the notion that the Antichrist, as a single individual, might be of Jewish origin, he fancies that the mention of "Dan," in Jeremiah 8:16, and the omission of that name from those tribes listed in Revelation 7, might indicate Antichrist's tribe.[35] He also speculated that it was “very probable” the Antichrist might be called Lateinos, which is Greek for “Latin Man”

  • No NT author other than John uses the term "antichrist", but a similar concept of a spiritual force opposed to Christ which will manifest itself in the last days in a specific human being is used by Paul in II Thessalonians 2:3-9 where he speaks of the "man of lawlessness". According to Paul, this individual, empowered by Satan and the embodiment of all that is opposed to God, will be defeated by Christ at his second coming (II Thes 2:8). Most interpreters link the man of lawlessness, the antichrist, with "the beast" of Revelation 11:7. Like the man of lawlessness, the beast is empowered by Satan (though he is not Satan) and will be defeated by Christ (Rev 19:19-20).

  • "a mouth speaking great things".

    The Antichrist will rise to power on a wave of world euphoria, as he temporarily saves the world from its desperate economic, military & political problems with a brilliant 7-year plan for world peace, economic stability & religious freedom.

    The Antichrist could well rise out of the current chaos in the former Soviet Union. The prophet Ezekiel names him as the ruler of "Magog", a name that Biblical scholars agree denotes a country or region of peoples to the north of Israel. Many have interpreted this to mean modern day Russia. His power base will include the leading nations of Europe, whose leaders, the Bible says, will "give their power & strength unto the beast."
