Let me be specific. As everyone guesses who is going to be THE Antichrist, churches especially, I wonder what the hell are they talking about?
If you ask anyone what book the Antichrist prophecy is in, as I am asking you now, almost every time the answer will be the book of Revelation.
But the book of Revelation doesn't use the term anti-christ or the Antichrist one time. Never. What every one is referring to is the Beast, take
your pick there are a few Beasts, but usually it's the Beast666 that they mean.
antichrist or antichrists gets used 4 times in 1 John and 2 John. Ill show you:
1John 2:18-21 ...As you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now MANY antichrists HAVE COME....
