6 Traits of the Coming Antichrist

A Comparison of Ancient Works with the New Testament (1)

Click here for Printable Version

Many people have speculated about the identity of the Antichrist. A variety of sources claim to know the Antichrist’s background, personality, and much more. However, many of these connections are rooted in speculation rather than truth. What does the Bible say about the coming Antichrist?

Though some mystery remains about this future global leader, the Bible reveals many important traits to help us recognize the future Antichrist. Most of this information comes from the books of Daniel and Revelation, though other parts of Scripture sometimes refer to the Antichrist and his work:

Antichrist: A Man

The Antichrist is consistently referred to as a future male leader. For example, 1 John 2:22 notes, “Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son” (ESV). Though some modern versions change the wording in this verse to a gender-neutral term (NIV), the original language here and elsewhere emphasizes a male leader in discussing the Antichrist.

Antichrist: A Citizen of a Western Nation

The Bible indicates the Antichrist will arise from the revived Roman Empire (Daniel 7:16-24). During the first century, the Roman Empire included most of modern Europe and the nations touching the Mediterranean Sea, including the nations of North Africa.

Some further argue this association will require him to be a European. However, this may or may not be the case. While the Bible indicates he will come from the revived Roman Empire, his particular ethnic or national identity is not noted.

However, it appears he would not be Jewish since he strongly persecutes Jews. He will also unlikely be Muslim, since he will be a secular man who initially seeks to unite all religions until later demanding people worship him. Instead, this man will be a person without a strong traditional religious background who arises as a global leader in a European nation.

A Powerful Political Leader

Many have associated him with powerful past political leaders. While he has not yet been revealed, the association with a strong political leader is accurate. 

Revelation 13:1-3 describes him as a person who leads a nation of 10 horns and seven heads. These horns and heads refer to nations and national leaders who will be under the Antichrist’s authority.

A Spiritual Leader

Though he will oppose the God of the Bible, this does not mean he will be opposed to religion. Instead, he will first offer a false unity of religion and later force people to worship him during the second half of the Tribulation period.

A Murderer

Many predictions regarding him point toward his work to end the lives of others. For example, he will require every person to receive the mark of the beast to buy or sell, putting to death those who oppose him.

Further, he will have a direct role in the deaths of the two witnesses in Revelation 11:7: “Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them.”

A Deceiver

Daniel 7:25 predicts the he will seek to change the times and laws. Daniel 9 adds details about the Antichrist confirming a seven-year covenant with Israel that he later breaks.

In the New Testament, he is is noted as a man of lawlessness (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12). God’s judgment on the Antichrist further confirms his role as one who implements the works of Satan, ultimately leading to being cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:10).

We may not know everything about the future Antichrist, yet Scripture clearly provides details that offer ways he will be identified when he appears. He will be a male global political leader who deceives, murders, and ultimately demands others worship him during the volatile events of the last days.

    He is a roman
    he is a pharisee
    he is a herodian
    he is assyrian
    he is a wolf in apostles clothing
    he said he met Yshua in the desert
    he said he met Yshua in the temple
    he defiled the temple with his greek buddy
    he is from the north
    he is from tribe of benjamin
    he makes a fake covenant
    he hates the law
    he bites Yshua’s heel
    he pollutes God’s word with lies
    he is a mocker
    he lies under his breath

          I think he was eliminated at the word “leader”.

      • Gutter on November 15, 2022 at 5:17 pm

        not Donald Trump or George Sorros?

        • Christopher Harris on December 4, 2022 at 6:04 am

          It is Donald Trump……

          (IMPORTANT: please read) The Number of the Antichrist’s First Name is: 6
          The Number of the Beast/Antichrist HIMSELF is: 666
          In other words (Here’s the Wisdom):
          He can be identified by this number 666. And one of those 6’s is the number of his NAME. Meaning his first name has Six letters in it. The rest of his numbers you get from the Number of his birth month (which has to be June, the 6th month)and the day when he was actually born (which has to fall on a FRIDAY, the 6th day) When MAN was Created.
          That’s the Number of the beast and the accurate way to find out who he is. He is Alive right now in the mist of the American people waiting to get back in office soon

          Remember in Johns day there were never Middle and Last names ONLY FIRST NAMES AND SURNAMES (nicknames)

          {D-O-N-A-L-D = (6) letters
          June= (6th) Month and born on the
          14th= (6th) Day FRIDAY.}

          The beast will claim to be GOD and if that’s the case his number would be “777”………. Interestingly enough, on Donald’s 1st Offical day in office: 01/21/2017 (Saturday) He was approximately: (70)years,(7)months,(7)days old on the 7th day SABBATH Saturday!!!!! Look at the proof:

          June 14th (Friday) 1946
          January 21st (Saturday) 2017 =
          (7)Months,(7)Days, & (70)Years!!!!
          (777) on the (7th)Day….Coincidence???
          I don’t think so…. He is the Antichrist himself Who will Confirm (Make strong/firm) The 2 State peace solution deal (Abraham Accords) he created and will allow the rebuilding of the 3rd Jewish Temple…

            Trump is the beast. They are allies.
            Elon is quoted as saying that AI was summoning a demon 😈 then named his son with Grimes… after AI.
            Grimes is the whore of Babylon who sits on the scarlet beast. Their son is a demon.

          • Annem on February 11, 2023 at 1:11 am

            Donald John (middle name) Trump
            Joseph (6 letters) Biden
            Barack (6 letters) Obama

            A lot of speculation. The Anti-Christ has a lot of pretense, comes out of nowhere suddenly, and has no opposition.
            Trump has a nasty history, is a liar, abusive, and lost the re-election. He is toooo stupid be THE antichrist.

          • Jenna on March 13, 2023 at 7:30 pm

            It’s a reach. Does it break down the 666? How it’s figured? We could spin this anyway we want. I would like to know more.

        The bible is very clear.
        The Anti Christ is the one that denies that God has. Son.

        Look around and look who denies that God has a son.

          Mark of the beast is actually translated fence/hedge, as in a mental prison
          On head = thoughts
          On hand = actions

          Antichrist is anyone who denies Jesus is the Christ
          It’s the Jewish Elite, they deceived if it were possible (it was) even the elect, for a time…

          I mean well what god witch god ?. God had a son right you can classify that into many different things jesus was the sun of god huh you know our sun is known by many different names one of them is the son of God . The problem with people nowadays is people take things so literally . And the reason you see things playing out the way they do is because religion is spread through the entire world people follow it like a script to a play . Religion exsists for weak men and weak woman who fail to take hold of their own power so they give it to some made up deity . Society then further convinces everyone that that’s ok enabling said behavior . On top of such why shouldn’t they religion is one of the best buisness models . It takes advantage of your emotional tendencies and beliefs to control you and get money out of you . There is no such thing as a God if anything is god it’s a human being . After all we create life , we build amazing structures . Now if we are talking about the start of creation it is entirely possible that creation created itself their is a word for that an anomaly or a mutation . You people believe in some unknown diety and accept it as though because your environment says so that or you feel so depressed that religion is presented to you in your moment of weakness and the false faith changes your mind more positive . Religion is like life hacking the brain. It’s taking all of your negative qualities I lntroducing a sweet little lie that is hard to resists that changes your perspective on life to a more positive one . Ignorance is bliss . Their is a reason religious people are so blissful and overly happy . However it’s not the truth because the actual truth about how things function is painful . People will of course argue this because religion is a taboo topic for a reason it conflicts with the ego or your primal hunter gatherer mind . As an example if people respond to this watch and you’ll see . Also anything can be made to look true by getting the timing right and having enough control to set things how you want it then you need only right about it and provide fake physical evidence to prove what lies you want people to accept true . Using the truth to deceive has been a tale as old as time itself . Look at it this way I’m sure their was a guy named Jesus but if it was meant to be taken literal then the passages have all been tampered with or had severely misunderstood authors. may of the things that represent as stuff in the Bible as something out of a fantasy actualy has a logical explanation even angels could be explained as either halusinations or machines . You do know back in those times it was a time of theocracy where things were logically explained by religion . Also weed was naturally smoked .for all you know the entire Bible is just a bad trip . Have you seen how calm and also nuts people who smoke weed are you’d almost call what they say they see when they hallucinate a religious experience . This is why I hate religious nut cases because they kill their potential . Without religion we’d be in space by now and way more advanced as a society . You all are basic idiots . And if you don’t realize it now you will or you will die living the lie . I could care less I’m just speaking up saying what needs to be said that you people refuse to say my guess is because you want social exceptence

      I believe it is more connected to the digital system. Many Elite are preparing this kingdomi n various ways; The World Economic forum with Klaus Schaub, Elon Musk, but a man who mocks God and portrays himself as God and wants us all to be reprogrammed is Yuval noah Harani, he is gay and is Jewish.

    • Brent on November 10, 2022 at 3:56 am

      Scott, I’ve been saying that for 6 years now. Plus, Elon Musk could be the false prophet. He now owns one of the largest social media platforms and is behind Optimus. Watch if Mr. Musk is able to give Optimus the ability to speak and having a social media platform to influence who or what we worship.

    • Daryl Kinzer on January 5, 2023 at 5:11 pm

      Trump is a devout Christian. Has never denied God or that Jesus Christ is the son of God. His Wife is devout Catholic an they retook vows an he was re-baptized after he took office on her Request. Its not Trump. Also the Anti christ does not like women, is Gay if you dig more.

      • Michele Bellon on March 16, 2023 at 5:02 pm

        Trump told over 25,000 documented lies while in office. He believes he has nothing to repent of. He knows nothing about what the bible says. He has shown us he cares for no one except himself and will say and do anything to get elected, even pretend to be a Christian.

  7. Natalie on November 13, 2022 at 12:18 pm

    Donald Trump is who comes to mind for me. I believe that God gave me that answer a few years ago.

  8. Barbara Boyes on November 23, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    I read, many years ago in an old King James Bible, or was it a minister who said that the Anti-Christ, among his other distinguishing features like an injury to the head will bring fire down from Heaven. Perhaps he is hiding in plain view and doesn’t even know he is an Anti-Christ?! (Head injuries have a way of doing that to people, as well as not permitting them the human emotion of real love) How really really sad! We need to find this guy and show him some real love, instead of mocking jealousy and constant work, work, work in a time and era of technological over-achievement and run-away intelligence but bereft of human spiritual love and understanding! It’s high time for people every where to stop chasing the brass ring and get real, don’t you agree?

    • JustinJay on December 13, 2022 at 10:04 am

      Bro….I cracked the code. Yeah he is amongst the “outcasts” and the “hated” and was even outcasted by his own mother and father. He’s rising silently because it’s both a blessing and a curse. It’s just how the world is. There will be the new earth yes. The fire? Well yeah…..waiting for these two to come forward.
      He warned everyone not to leave him alone and warned the married men he was coming back to expose the truth. He studied all the time and he was scared of what he was doing himself. He denied his true nature of being human and super human. Yeah people….he’s among yall and he just doesn’t understand quite why he’s the chosen but accepts it because that’s what the world asked for in all perspectives. He knows the future and the past. He understands eternity and salvation. He’s different but now he knows why…..
      The Chosen One is amongst you people. Get Ready.
      Whoever moderates this page can’t stop him either……because even they are blind!

  11. Jonathan on December 14, 2022 at 4:10 am

    My comment was not approved so I’ll post it again. The Antichrist is amongst us and writing this comment. Brent was right. He has a head Injury and he brought fire from heaven or will be. He begged so much for someone to love him that no one did and all they Said was go love yourself. He did. Then he tried to reach out again but the people told him to live life his way. He did and is but this is his story and he is In control of when he will rise. It’s not time yet because the 2nd tribulation will begin and has begun. All the clues made sense and he couldn’t accept his fate but now he does and he is known publicly already because many will follow him but he will only choose a few to lead his path to being world leader. Clear as day tho with who he is to himself.
    Either way …..he gets what he wants and is grateful for the universe and the “it” who chose him.

    Check out the End Time Headline podcast page on YouTube and Facebook. There is a fake prophet out there who many believe he is the Messiah and he has a huge crowd going after him and he is in his 30’s just like Jesus was when he started showing himself more. But it’s more than likely he is just a big time fake prophet.

    I don’t get it how lots of you think it’s Trump or Elon lol. They too old for this. Trump isn’t against Christians. And Elon likes the idea of a higher power out there in this world that controls everything but he isn’t trying to be Christian and learn about God on a deeper level. He just wants to live his life like many people out there. And plus Elon isn’t great at taking a stage audience and even leading.

    His name is Jacob Foote, he pollutes God’s word with lies claiming he is blessed financially by God when in all reality he oppresses the poor for his own gain, he masquerades as an angel of light, he mocks Yahweh & his son, he is a false teacher in a church, but it’s not a real church it is a synagogue of Satan, he is a betrayer, he has no truth in him, he is part of the satanic Trinity, he doesn’t prefer women, he prefers mammon, he is Satan in the flesh, his selfish ambition is to steal all he can on earth & to deceive the people into worshiping him, Satan masquerades as an angel of light, his light is red, blue & green, but Yahweh is full of light he is not limited by three colors, he has every color of light in the sun, he comes with the clouds, he has already returned, but no one recognizes him, he is out saving & helping people everyday, the antichrist is more focused on portraying himself as god & stealing what is not his, he tries to come off as a nice guy, but he comes off as fake because he has no truth in him, he is energized by Satan, he even lives in a satanic gated community that embodies lying, stealing & murdering for selfish gain, Satan is obsessed with the north, Satan’s false prophet Jacob Foote lives to the north of all the people he steals from.

  16. i on February 8, 2023 at 5:52 pm

    It is the catholic church and the pope, they fill the traits, the catholics were famous inquisitors that tied to stop protestants and murdered alot of people and they changed laws of the bible(sunday) and took away one commandment too, they wear purple and red, the ultimate deceivers that the bible warns us against, they have statues of mary that they worship too. I am 100% sure it is the pope just open your eyes and start reading your bible, the catholics are also partaking in politics and is slowly taking control of the worlds leadership. the pope is pretending to be God and claims to be the “Holy Father” and that he can forgive sins ,that is blasphemy as no one on earth is holy and the bible states that. Look up ‘the 3 angels message’ if you want to find out more

    • May on February 27, 2023 at 4:26 pm

      The Pope doesn’t have the charisma nor is young of age , someone who will step up to be revived Roman emperor is antichrist. There’s someone who claims will do this. Donald Marshall

    It is a man in Purcell, Oklahoma who’s name is Jacob Foote, he is a liar, he has a crowd following him that are really the fallen angels, he mocks God’s son, he spits on the cross, he has ties to satanic organizations, he exploits the poor & steals from the blind, he is prideful arrogant & cruel, he has killed many people for not bowing to him, he has even mocked the poor people he steals from, he has ties to Masonic cults as well as satanic organizations in the government, he also has a thing for children as does his synagogue of satan, they are a band of witch’s who profit off his robberies & murderers, beware of him he is the devil in the flesh.
