The English word Antichrist is taken from the Greek αντίχριστος antíkhristos, which literally means "instead of Christ". In the Bible, the term itself appears only in 1 John and 2 John.
The Name of the Beast, the Number of His Name--
The Invisible Head of the Papacy
The Man of Sin prays the Lord for forgiveness while in the very act of fornication with abominable idols. It was the rebuke by the true Christians against the blasphemy of idolatry committed by the Roman Catholic Church which resulted in their imprisonment, tortures and murders through the centuries. The Word of God clearly states that she will never change, nor truly repent (see Rev. 17-18). Instead, judgment is promised to come in one hour.
TITLES OF THE POPE THAT CEMENT THE FACT THAT HE IS ANTICHRIST
"Most Divine of all Heads."
"Holy Father of Fathers." In Matthew 23:9 Jesus warns:
"Call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your father which is in heaven."
Holy Father is a title the pope claims for himself. However, this title occurs only once in the Bible, and used when Jesus addresses His Heavenly Father in John 17:11 in His great prayer before His betrayal, arrest and crucifixion. It is blasphemy for any man to claim this title for himself. It belongs only to God, the Father.
Father is a title that every Roman Catholic priest claims for himself and expects to be called.
"Overseer of the Christian Religion." Here we see Antichrist attempting to replace Jesus as head of the church.
"Pastor of Pastors."
"Christ by Unction." blasphemy
"Abraham by Patriachate."
"Melchisedec in Order." blasphemy - Jesus is our High Priest
"Moses in Authority."
"Samuel in the Judicial Office."
"High Priest, Supreme Bishop." blasphemy Jesus is our great High Priest.
"Heir to the Apostles; Peter in Power."
"Key-bearer of the Kingdom of Heaven."
"Pontiff Supreme Over Prelates."
"Pontiff Appointed with Plenitude of Power."
Pontifix Maximus is a papal title meaning in Latin "chief bridge maker" between earth and heaven. However, Jesus Christ is the only One who can claim this title because
"no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6.
This was a title of Julius Caesar and of the Roman Emperors of paganism, thus showing how modern Roman Catholicism is of pagan origin. Constantine, a politician, in 320 AD, hijacked the church of Rome, taking control of it for himself. Hence, all popes accept the title "Pontifix Maximus" which title belonged to the Roman Emporers from Julius Caesar onwards.
"Vicar of Christ." This is the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
"Vicar of the Son of God." This is the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
"Head of all the Holy Churches."
"Chief of the Universal Church."
"Bishop of Bishops."
"Ruler of the House of the Lord."
"Apostolic Lord and Father of Fathers."
"Chief Pastor and Teacher."
"Physician of Souls."
"Rock against which the proud gates of hell prevail not."
"Head of All the Holy Priests of God" Here again we see the Pope exalting himself above the son of God
2 Thessalonians 2:4:
"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."
