Could the Anti-Christ be here already? The Anti-Christ is already here and working his power behind an illusion. You might ask, “Who is the Anti-Christ and what are his plans?” The Bible does not give us the name of the Anti-Christ but gives us information to look out for that will help us in the end times. Some don’t know that the end times are here and there are signs all around us. We can see these signs if we know how to look for them. From Christian persecution to a one world religion to an economic collapse, forcing a one world currency: Be aware. 1 John 2:18 says, “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.”
The Anti-Christ hates god and anyone that goes against him. The Bible tells us in Revelation 13:5-8, “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
This Anti-Christ is one who the people love, they don’t realize that he is the very pediment and definition of evil itself. Evil doesn’t represent itself as evil but good. Christians believe that evil is derived from Satan, and is the working of things immoral and the direct disobedience of God. Satan is clever and doesn’t want anyone to realize what they do as wrong. For example, the Islam faith believe that there is no concept of absolute evil; things that are perceived as evil or bad are either natural events such as natural disasters or illnesses (Wikipedia). This teaching is used to tell people that their own concept of whether something is good is for them to decide. They are calling it “unity in diversity”. The world is moving toward this view at an alarming rate. Don’t be misled by those that say, “Love everyone the way they are. Whether they commit adultery, homosexuality or murder, we shouldn’t tell them they are committing sin.” See how evil this is; it is in disguise. Yes it sounds good to love people and let people live the way they want, but God said the opposite. We are to love people but not their sin. We are to warn people of their sins. Colossians 1:28 says, “Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:”
The Anti-Christ is one that has powers to deceive and can bring a delusion that he should be worshipped not God. In 2 Thessalonians 2:3,4,9,10,11,12, it says, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
The Anti-Christ speaks words against God and against Christians. He tries to convince people to believe his lie and he is very convincing. He hates Christians because they tell people about their sins and tell them to believe on the Lord Jesus. He hates this because he wants to be the king. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 says, “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
This Anti-Christ will be work to destroy things that are good. He has a purpose and a plan and he will be able to carry out this plan. Daniel 8:23-24 says, “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.” Government leaders are calling for a “new world order” which means their agenda is to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government.
This Anti-Christ will set limits on those who buy or sell. Revelation 13:17 says, “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” In the last days, one will be required to have his mark. Revelation 13:16-18 says, “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” One might ask how this is possible. Well if our currency is no good and we have to rely on a “one world currency” than it would be very possible. Different countries are calling for this one world global currency now, such as Russia, China, Italy, Iran, etc…

Daniel 11:36-45-And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain. And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
