Notes on the Anti-christ

Compiled by WD Kemner January 2024




PROFILE of the Anti-christ



There is NO individual in scripture that is called by the name “Anti-christ”.  Apostle John uses the term in his books of 1John and 2John to denote those that “deny that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh”.  Based off of that definition there are thousands of “anti-christ” on the planet today.


The term is not used in Revelation.  However, it has become a term “adopted” to refer to the “man” that Satan will use as his “mockery of Jesus Christ”.  He is opposed or opposite to EVERYTHING that represents Jesus; thus he is “Anti” Christ and the name fits very well.


He is referred to in Revelation as the “Beast”.  This can be confusing to those who do not pay careful attention to what is read.  There are two distinct characters referred to with the term “beast” in Revelation Chapter 13.


Many terms are used throughout scripture to refer to the Anti-christ.


Daniel uses terms: little horn, mighty king.

Isaiah calls him: a king; Extortioner (16:2) and The Assyrian (10:24, 30:31).

Micah calls him The Assyrian.

Paul calls him “man of lawlessness”.


He will begin as a man of peace, influencer, problem solver, and very charismatic.  This man can be on the world stage at any time; even at the present moment.  The title of Anti-christ being able to be assigned to him once he begins to meet all the below criteria from scripture and eventually calls himself the Christ.




The Origins of the Anti-christ




Daniel 8:9 - Alexander the Great’s old Grecian Empire was divided into four regions. He will come from one of those four.



Daniel 11:36-39 - He is further restricted to being out of the Northern Division of the four kingdoms.



Daniel 11:36 - He is not a man of the past. Meaning that he gives no thought to his heritage or where he comes from.




Rise to Power of the Anti-christ




This can occur anytime.  He will already be on the world stage BEFORE any of the other events of the End Times occur.



Revelation 13:1-2 – He will come out of the sea of people. He is human.



He will be a man of diplomacy and will conquer the world diplomatically.



Revelation 6:1-2 - refers to The White Horse of Seal #1.  A man who conquers with a bow (with no arrow) and a crown.
