Antichrist in Smiths Bible Dictionary This term is employed by the apostle John alone, and is defined by him in a manner which leaves no doubt as to its intrinsic meaning. With regard to its application there is less certainty. In the first passage-- 1Jo 2:18 --in which it occurs, the apostle makes direct reference to the false Christs whose coming, it had been fore-told, should mark the last days. In v. 22 we find, "he is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son;" and still more positively, "every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of antichrist." Comp. 2Jo 1:7 From these emphatic and repeated definitions it has been supposed that the object of the apostle in his first epistle was to combat the errors of Cerinthus, the Docetae and the Gnostics on the subject of the Incarnation. (They denied the union of the divine and human in Christ.) The coming of Antichrist was (believed to be foretold in the "vile person" of Daniel's prophecy, Da 11:21 which received its first accomplishment in Antiochus Epiphanes but of which the complete fulfillment was reserved for the last times. He is identified with "the man of sin, the son of perdition." 2Th 2:3 This interpretation brings Antichrist into close connection with the gigantic power of evil, symbolized by the "beast," Re 13:1 ... who received his power from the dragon (i.e. the devil, the serpent of Genesis), continued for forty and two months, and was invested with the kingdom of the ten kings who destroyed the harlot Babylon, Re 17:12,17 the city of seven hills. The destruction of Babylon is to be followed by the rule of Antichrist for a short period, Re 17:10 to be in his turn overthrown in "the battle of that great day of God Almighty," Re 16:14 with the false prophet and all his followers. Rev. 19. The personality of Antichrist is to be inferred as well from the personality of his historical precursor as from that of him to whom he stands opposed. Such an interpretation is to be preferred to that which regards Antichrist as the embodiment and personification of all powers and agencies inimical to Christ, or of the Antichristian might of the world.

Antichrist in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE The word "antichrist" occurs only in 1 Jn 2:18,22; 4:3; 2 Jn 1:7, but the idea which the word conveys appears frequently in Scripture. I. In the Old Testament. Antichrist in the Old Testament: As in the Old Testament the doctrine concerning Christ was only suggested, not developed, so is it with the doctrine of the Antichrist. That the Messiah should be the divine Logos, the only adequate expression of God, was merely hinted at, not stated: so Antichrist was exhibited as the opponent of God rather than of His anointed. In the historical books of the Old Testament we find "Belial" used as if a personal opponent of Yahweh; thus the scandalously wicked are called in the King James Version "sons of Belial" (Jdg 19:22; 20:13), "daughter of Belial" (1 Sam 1:16), etc. The the Revised Version (British and American) translates the expression in an abstract sense, "base fellows," "wicked woman." In Dan 7:7,8 there is the description of a great heathen empire, represented by a beast with ten horns: its full antagonism to God is expressed in a little eleventh horn which had "a mouth speaking great things" and "made war with the saints" (Dan 7:8,21). Him the `Ancient of Days' was to destroy, and his kingdom was to be given to a `Son of Man' (Dan 7:9-14). Similar but yet differing in many points is the description of Antiochus Epiphanes in Dan 8:9-12,23- 25...

Antichrist in Wikipedia In Islam Masih ad-Dajjal (Arabic: الدّجّال‎, literally "The Deceiving Messiah"), is an evil figure in Islamic eschatology. He is to appear pretending to be God at a time in the future, before Yawm al-Qiyamah (The Day of Resurrection, Judgment Day). It is also believed by Muslims that Jesus will return at the time of the Dajjal and he will be the one to eventually defeat him. Prophet Muhammad said: "I warn you against{antichrist(dajaal)} and every prophet warned his nation against him.But i am telling you something that no prophet has told his nation before me that he will be one eyed and Allah(god)is not one eyed"{sahih bukhari, quoted from Prophet Muhammad SAW} .That dajaal will only have one eye.and he is evil any one who follow him, will go to hell.do not follow him.he also told that...
