21 Scary Biblical Facts about the Coming Anti-Christ
Anti: Contrary, opposite substitute.
Christ : From the Greek Χριστος (Christos) and Latin Christum, anointed
Throughout history the Anti-Christ also designated the people who were against Christianity, so then the Antichrist could be anyone who was against the Messiah and what he represents. Under this reasoning, we understand that throughout history there have been many antichrists and those not in agreement with the doctrine of Christ.
In the New Testament in the words of Jesus given to the apostle John in his first letter 1 John 2:18 : "Children, it is the ending of Time. As you have heard that Antichrist cometh, even now are there many antichrists whereby we know that is the Ending of Time (or End Times). "

In the Bible is revealed the somewhat scary idea (for those who are not safe in the arms of Faith and God) that an anti-christ will be loosed in the world and will be known by signs of a specific nature identifying him. With the coming of this person who will have great authority in the culture and holding a world-view glorifying all things non-Christian from sex to love of the flesh to distorted standards leading the lost to even greater sin being the very incarnation of all things that are not divine, effectively ruling with fear instead of love, this anti-christ will be like an angel to some but in truth a singer of rotten council and violent motive, a true prince of evil if ever there was one.

Description of the Beast
On the other hand, there are interpretations that embody the Antichrist, but identify it based on the words of Jesus in the Gospels, but with many who call themselves the Messiah and Savior, to San Juan in his letters anyone can be an antichrist, provided that their attitude (even if self-confessed Christian) go against Christ, which fits perfectly with the etymological meaning of the word Antichrist.
Description of the Beast
In Revelation , through a highly symbolic language characteristic of apocalyptic genre , the beast is described as a monster with seven heads and ten horns (and each horn, ten diadems ), with a body like a leopard, feet Bear and jaws of a lion . He says he is inspired by the Devil and have the power to fight against God. Daniel 7:19-21 .
According to many scholars, Beast is called the structure of totalitarian power (imperial). By imposing on people a way of life (as opposed to God), its worship is inspired by a propaganda similar to the Roman imperial cult in the totalitarian or fascist . It may even be mortally wounded and healed by another beast, another Empire, who would be responsible for strengthening their worship. Rev 13:11-12 .
The whole description can be seen as a metaphor that we can find in Daniel 4 , in which a government would be ten kingdoms that were part of the late Roman empire to dominate the Earth and join training as the last great global empire, led by the person of the Antichrist.
