Here's a little piece of trivia? Where in Revelation is the Antichrist mentioned? Nowhere.
That's right, boys and girls, the Antichrist is never mentioned in Revelation. Not once. The Beast is, the False Prophet is, Satan is quite a bit, but no Antichrist.
So, where does the word come from? Well, two places. (1) People who claim to read the bible "literally", but never actually read it; and (2) see below.
1 John 2:18 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
1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
Hmmm . . . where's all the bits about the Antichrist ruling the world and one world government and such. Nothing. An Antichrist (notice it's in the plural a couple of times) is exactly what the word implies: someone opposite of Jesus the Messiah, who denies the Messiah, and who denies God and his teachings. Nothing more, nothing less.
Ask me me about Lucifer and Heaven and Hell sometime. I dare you.
