    Default Where does Antichrist come from

    Is he the Muslim Mahdi that rules in the Middle East and finds favor with sympathetic Western nations? Is it a Western leader that rules the EU, US and attacks the Middle East for more control? Who is he and where does he come from? The West or the East? Does America succumb to him and the mark of the beast?

    The antichrist is the father of lies ,Satan . He works to influence antichrists (many) also called beast.(natural unconverted man who has a number assigned to him "666"). They are those who deny Christ and do not repent . One identifier is anyone who says Christ has not come in the flesh as did the Jews(outward Jew in respect to the flesh) when they rejected Him. they would be called antichrists .They also insist as a motive of operation we need a man to teach us. (their men) that they call fathers, as a law of the fathers, a oral traditions of men .

    One thing the antichrist (father of lies) is accomplishing even today is that he teaches man the antichrist (Satan) has not come, or has not been revealed by the word of God and is something that will occur in the future even though the scriptures does not inform us of that. But rather revelas who he is.

    A good place to look for what defies a antichrist (Satan the god of this world) and his followers (antichrists )is in 1 John 2.

    The Holy Spirit uses that section of scripture to warns us of their ways.

    1Jo 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? Heisantichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.1Jo 2:19-27

    I don't think He will be a muslim.. I believe the Prophet Daniel speaks two evil Kings.. The king of the North and the King of the South and tells of great wars between the two.. I believe the King of the South will be the leader of the Sunni islamic world and they will think he is the Mahdi. The King of the North will be the leader of Europe/ western world... And the King of the North will wipe out the King of the South.. I think the anti-christ will be the king of the North..

    My view.....the west falls and he sweeps what is left...I do believe he is the 12th IMAM/MADHI and Islam is the religion of the beast and the god pointed at will ne Allah who is Satan.....

    Satan has attempted through history to bring this about, but it has been hindered by God....

    The following gods were Satan attempting to be worshipped as God in a man and correspond to the following kingdoms

    Egypt-->Assyria-->Babylon-->Persia-->Greece-->Rome--->END of the age

    Horus is Bel is Marduke is Merodach is Jupiter is Zeus is Allah.....

    MY VIEW...America falls in a strike from Russia at the instigation of Russia's three Islamic allies.......!

    How about stop learning about christian conspiracy theories, and focus on God instead?

    In the past 100+ years, every answer to this nonsensical question has been proven wrong with time.

    The greatest war of all time, with the man most like the AC, came out of Germany. Today Germany is over run with Muslims, maybe that is the answer.

    This is along the right lines except I believe the wars between the Ptolomies and Selucids resulted in a winner already in the king of the NORTH and the AC (so called) will come from the area conquered by the King of the NORTH....

    North West Iraq
    North East Syria
    South East Turkey

    I do believe he will be Islamic in scope....the current Pope has sought to reunite with the Greek Pope (this unifies Western and Eastern religion (Christianity so called) and the last three Western Popes have bowed to and kissed the KORAN placing themselves under the banner of Islam...if but symbolically at the moment...

    The beast will scrutinize a god that his fathers did not KNOW (ISLAM comes from Arabs who came from Ishmael ultimately as SON of Abraham and tied to Isaac and Jacob) He will acknowledge that god, promote that god and increase that god.......

    There is much speculation about the identity of the Antichrist. Some of the more popular targets are Vladimir Putin, Prince William, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Pope Francis I. In the United States, former President Barack Obama and current President Donald Trump are the most frequent targets. So, who is the Antichrist, and how will we recognize him?

    The Bible really does not say anything specific about where the Antichrist will come from. Many Bible scholars speculate that he will come from a confederacy of ten nations and/or a reborn Roman empire (Daniel 7:24-25; Revelation 17:7). Others see him as having to be a Jew in order to claim to be the Messiah. It is all just speculation since the Bible does not specifically say where the Antichrist will come from or what race he will be. One day, the Antichrist will be revealed. Second Thessalonians 2:3-4 tells us how we will recognize the Antichrist: “Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God.”

    It is likely that most people who are alive when the Antichrist is revealed will be very surprised at his identity. The Antichrist may or may not be alive today. Martin Luther was convinced that the pope in his time was the Antichrist. During the 1940’s, many believed Adolph Hitler was the Antichrist. Others who have lived in the past few hundred years have been equally sure as to the identity of the Antichrist. So far, they have all been incorrect. We should put the speculations behind us and focus on what the Bible actually says about the Antichrist. Revelation 13:5-8 declares, “The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months. He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.”

    it seems that many pass right over the following....and to note...all three tenses were given when John pens Revelation in 90-95 AD..

    The beast that

    a. Was<---past tense
    b. Is NOT<---present tense
    c. and SHALL ascend out of the pit<--Future tense

    You know....The Devil will possess who ever it is.....and there is a reason why he disputed about the dead body of Moses....If he could have possessed Moses he could have led the children of Israel astray....

    in like manner....the beast takes a deadly wound....and then the wound is healed...IMV The devil will possess whoever it is and they will stand again after the working of his power and it will be on.......

    Antichristmeans against or instead of Christ. The term applies toall who deny what the Bible says about Jesus Christ, all who opposehis Kingdom, and all who mistreat his followers. It also includesindividuals, organizations, and nations that falsely claim torepresent Christ or that improperly ascribe to themselves the role ofMessiah.

    I believe the antichrist is anyone who tries to usurp the Lord's authority by disobeying the Lord's commandments and teaching others to do the same.

    The Antichrist is a mighty spirit being that God has imprisoned until the correct time, when Jesus opens the first seal. It is supposed that the AC will overshadow or indwell a human, maybe, maybe not, do not know on that one. However, when God releases that spirit on the earth it will immediately begin and within ten years it will all be over. The first seal is the first thing, and it has not happened yet.

    I have no opinion about America falling in a strike from Russia, but I do agree that the Mahdi of Islam will be the anti Christ.

    He is Islams savior.

    Ya know d I'm not saying your wrong here but just to bring to your attention a certain country that fits the criteria and is never mentioned is ....England.
    England is still a monarchy.....she is involved in many conspiracies. Mostly the world banking system. We fought her for our independence, Germany devastated her but yet she rises again.
    I know we have different view points but thought I'd share. Do a study on England if you haven't already. You might be surprised.

    Antichrist = instead of Christ in the Greek. It will be Satan, playing that part. He comes at the 6th seal, 6th trumpet, 6th vial (666)
