     Is the Antichrist here on earth today?

Q: A friend of mine believes that the Antichrist is alive today, and he even thinks he knows who it is. Could he be right? What is the Antichrist, anyway? - D.McK.

A: The Antichrist refers to a specific person who will appear at the end of the present age (just before Christ returns), and will be the embodiment or fulfillment of all evil. The word "Antichrist" literally means "someone who is opposed to Christ" - and that's exactly what the Antichrist will be: absolutely opposed to Christ and His people.

Although the Bible doesn't go into detail, it's clear that the Antichrist will be part of Satan's final attempt to stop God's plan for the world. Remember: Satan is totally opposed to God, and his only goal is to block God's plans in every way he can. He attempted it at the beginning of the human race with Adam and Eve, and again (although unsuccessfully) at the beginning of Jesus' ministry (see Matthew 4:1-11). As the time approaches for Jesus' return, Satan will make one final, full-scale attempt to deceive the world and turn people away from Christ.

Is the Antichrist alive today? The Bible tells us not to speculate about this - but it does urge us to be alert and on guard. It also reminds us that Satan is always active, and "as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many Antichrists have come" (1 John 2:18).

When he comes, the Antichrist will claim to be God - but he also will deny the truth of Christ and oppose those who follow Him. The key is to know God's truth... believe God's truth... and live by God's truth. Remember: "Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you" (James 4:7-8).

Quoting mamawolf1103:

My grandmothers belief is that since we don't know when Christ is supposed to return there is always someone in place that could be the antichrist for that generation. I don't know, that is just the opinion of my grandmother, but who knows, it could be.


I have read extensively about the Antichrist not only in the Scriptures but the writings of Biblical Scholars & Religious leaders who lived thru out the Centuries. Most of them are in union that there will be "smaller antichrists" to preceed THE ANTICHRIST. They will be filled w/ a similar hatred of mankind & God subsequently preparing the way for the "man of sin!" Hitler comes to mind & those like Saddam * Uday * Qusay Hussein etc. Lucifer the master @ deception has been preparing the world stage for his presence since the beginning of time when he was tossed from Heaven w/ 1 third of the stars { devils } by the Archangel Michael & his Heavenly Angels. According to the Book of Revelations Michael will be the chosen instrument by God Almighty to battle w/ Lucifer in the final dayz & than throw him into hell w/ his legions of devils for all eternity.

I read that many saintly ppl. who have lived thru out the Centuries have longed to live in the Biblical times of the last dayz so they may witness this most memorable event of Michael & Lucifer fighting for the souls that Jesus has redeemed upon the Cross. Lucifer will even attempt to rise up toward the clouds due to his arrogance & pride claiming that he is God. By the grace of God...Michael will prevent this & defeat the devil + claim victory for Our Lord~+ I believe these events will take place in our lifetime b/c the Biblical signs are present & the world stage is being set for the entrance of the Antichrist thru the paramount evil & sin all over the world~

I think that the "Birthing pains" are increasing meaning that its getting close I think the time is near and we should all keep close to GOD's truth and word. The anti Christ might be here only God knows that though
