What is an antichrist?


Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 1 John 2:18
Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. 1 John 2:22
…but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. 1 John 4:3
 I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.
            The term “antichrist” appears four times in the Bible, three times in 1 John and once in 2 John.  The apostle John is the only writer in the Bible who uses the term.

            Antichrist is a person who denies that Jesus is the Messiah.  By doing so, he denies the Trinity too.  Antichrist denies Jesus came to the earth in flesh.

            There are many antichrists, not just one.  John believed antichrists lived among us and will come in the future, especially as the final days of earth wind down.

            Antichrist do more than not believe, they deceive, trying to get others to doubt and then deny like them.
