    No one really knows just how that event will play out, or when. According to scripture, there are and will be many anti-Christs.

    The one that you are talking about will enter the scene with deception, and gain the trust and loyalty of many people by that deception. I believe that even many Christians will not recognize his presence for a while. However, I believe the followers of the True Christ will see the light and they will be persecuted. Also people who really don't believe in Christ, but are sympathetic toward a Christian belief, will also find themselves in persecution.

    When it will be, who knows? Who it will be, who knows. I do believe it will be pretty soon. I am old enough now that I might miss that event.

    What happens if you were to discover the anti-christ, Froggy?

    Would you ignore him?

    Would you ally with him?

    Or will you try to destroy him?

    Matthew 24: 36-44

    Matthew 16:2-4

    The bold part in verse 4 always makes me stumble when I think about looking for the signs of the times.

    Personally? I don't think it's going to be one person.

    I think it's gonna be 3.

    According to Jewish numerology, 6 is the number of mankind, so it would be logical to think that "666" would be a group of 3 men, who will try to rule over the entire world.

    Just one person? Well..........hate to tell you, but the job is gonna be too big for just one person. And, because there is 3, that would point to a Trinity, which may try to erase the memory of God.

    Therefore, 3 people.

    I can see what you are saying and I believe, but don't care to look it up that the Bible speaks of a False Prophet, the Anti-Christ and Satan as being like a Trinity; the antithesis of the Trinity. So, some of what you say might make sense depending on one's interpretations.

    Jonah spent three days in the belly of a great fish, Jesus spent three days in the grave. The sign He was speaking of was the one given to that generation.

    It's not time for Jesus to come back. This is the generation that will see the revelation of the Son of Perdition in the church, and the binding of the dragon. For His own reasons and purposes, certainly not because we deserve it, God is going to bless this generation.

    The anti-Christ may already be walking the face of the Earth. Time will tell. I'm ready for the rapture myself. I've had enough.
