Some Characteristics of Antichrists

by Hadley Robinson

Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. - 1Jn. 2:18
 1.  They are false teachers/deceivers and have disguised themselves (Matt. 24:4; Rom.16:18; 2Th. 2:10; 1Jn. 2:18-19).

2.  They cannot abide the presence of God's Elect for long and will eventually separate themselves from them (2Jn. 2:19).

3.  They reject the truth concerning the most important of all Christian doctrines:  That Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ, God's Son come in the flesh, the Lamb slain for His people who are the elect of God (1Jn. 2:20-21,26-27).

4.  They have no part in God's salvation nor do what is right (1Jn. 2:24-25,29).  They are experts in using sexual immorality to destroy men's souls (Num. 25:1ff; Jude 4,7; Rev. 2:14).

5.  They do not walk in love but pretend to do so (2Jn. 1:6,10).

6.  The world is their home and those who are perishing listen to them (1Jn. 4:5; 2Th. 2:9-11).

7.  They take their orders from their master, the Antichrist (Rev. 13:2).

8.  They have amazing political skills and may have miraculous powers, like their master (Matt. 24:24; Rev. 13:14).

If we consider the deeds and character of the real Christ, we only need to consider the opposites to arrive at the character of Antichrist and the antichrists.  Sexual immorality and idols are among their most important weapons used to attack men (2Pet. 2:14-15; Rev. 2:14).  The current President of the United States is most likely an antichrist.
