Who is the Antichrist? – According to the Bible

Who is the Antichrist? – According to the Bible

Who is the antichrist? The word “antichrist” occurs in the Bible only in 1 and 2 John. Who is this antichrist? Is it a historical figure who is already dead? Is it someone who is living on earth today? Or is it someone who is yet to be born? Or, is it possible that there is more than one? Let us examine the Bible to find out.

“It is the last hour. And as you have heard, ‘Antichrist is coming,’ even now many antichrists have come.” (1 John 2:18 CSB, emphasis added)

John said that even in the first century, there had already been many antichrists. read more

Sudden, unexpected end of this world

Sudden, unexpected end of this world

“At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time. So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.” (Mt 24:23-26)
At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.” (Mk 13:21-23)
There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Lk 21:25-28)
The end will be sudden, unexpected.

Signs of the End

Signs of the End

Warnings not to be mislead:

  • “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.” (Matthew 24:4-5)
  • “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them.” (Luke 21:8)

The Bible says not to set a time, but rather, be ready at all times. (Mt 24:42-44; Mk 13:33-35)

Can you see a sign? “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.” (Mathew 24:30) No, the “sign of the Son of Man” is not seen yet. Do you (or will you) need someone such as a preacher, scholar or group to tell you Jesus has returned? “When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near.” (Luke 21:30) No, everyone on earth will see it then. read more

Can anyone predict the end of the world?

Can anyone predict the end of the world?

End of the World
Can anyone predict the end of the world based on world events?

World events will not enable anyone to predict when the world will end.

Let’s take a look at some scriptures to support this idea.

Mt 2:4-5; Mk 13:5-6; Mk 13:22; Lk 21:8 – Many deceivers are foretold to come, saying the time is near. See 2 Thess 2:1-2

Mt 24:6-14; Mk 13:7-8; Lk 21:9-12 – Upheavals, wars, fights and troubles, false prophets are all predicted, but this doesn’t mean the end. The gospel is also predicted to be preached to the entire earth.

Mt 24:36-39 – Like the global flood – the end will come suddenly, catching people off guard. 1 Pt 3:21 – This water symbolized baptism, which is protecting Christians, like the ark from the flood. read more
