There is a lot of speculation swirling about the purpose, plans, and identity of the Antichrist.  Let’s turn to the Word of God for insights about this fascinatingly diabolical man.

1. The Antichrist will be a man.

Daniel 8:23 (NKJV) ““And in the latter time of their kingdom, When the transgressors have reached their fullness, A king shall arise, Having fierce features, Who understands sinister schemes.”

2. The Antichrist will be great in appearance.

Daniel 7:20 (NKJV) “and the ten horns that were on its head, and the other horn which came up, before which three fell, namely, that horn which had eyes and a mouth which spoke pompous words, whose appearance was greater than his fellows.”

3. The Antichrist will not desire women.

Daniel 11:45 (NKJV) “And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.”

4. The Antichrist hates and opposes God.

Revelation 13:6 (NKJV) “Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.”

5. The Antichrist will boast and magnify himself above every god.

Daniel 11:36 (NKJV) “Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.”

6. The Antichrist will be a conqueror.

Revelation 13:4 (NKJV) “So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

7. The Antichrist will make a peace treaty in the Middle East leading to the rebuilding of the 3rd Jewish Temple!

Daniel 9:27 (NKJV) “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.””

8. The Antichrist will have global worldwide authority.

Revelation 13:7 (NKJV) “It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.”

Revelation 17:8 (NKJV) “The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.”

9. The Antichrist will control the global worldwide economy.

Revelation 13:16–17 (NKJV) “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

10. The Antichrist will be a part of a global worldwide false religion.

Revelation 13:13–14 (NKJV) “He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth—by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.”

11. The Antichrist will display seemingly miraculous signs and wonders.

2 Thessalonians 2:9–12 (NKJV) “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

12. The Antichrist will appear to resurrect!

Revelation 13:3–4 (NKJV) “And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?””

Daniel 8:25 (NKJV) ““Through his cunning He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; And he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; But he shall be broken without human means.”

13. The Antichrist fights against Jesus Christ.

Revelation 19:19 (NKJV) “And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.”

14. The Antichrist fails and spends eternity in the Lake of Fire.

Revelation 19:19–21 (NKJV) “And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.”

Even today in 2020 a former prime minister of England is calling for a global government and leader. The stage is set!
