Will we know who the anti-christ is?

Does the Bible (esp. in Revelation) reveal whether or not we will know who the anti-christ is or will it be a complete mystery to Christians?

    My personal belief is that those who have placed their trust and faith in Jesus Christ, will be "raptured" before the identity of the antichrist is revealed. God bless!!!

    He will be hailed as a great emancipator (Revelation 13: 3, 4).

    He will be an arrogant blasphemer (Daniel 11: 36 - 37; Revelation 13: 6)

    Paul describes him as "son of perdition, ..." (2 Thessalonians 2: 3 - 4)

    He will reject all moral standards. His title is literally "man of lawlessness" (2 Thessalonians 2: 3, Daniel 11: 37)

    He will be a power-obsessed idolater (Daniel 11: 38 - 39)

    He will cleverly mask his true self until it suits his purposes to be open in his hostility toward Christ.

    The definition of Antichrist :

    1 John 2:22 "Who is the liar if it is not the one that denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist."

    1 John 2:18,19 "There have come to be many antichrists...They went out from us, but they were not of our sort."

    So, sadly, antichrists have already been revealed since the Bible times until today even.

    Hope this helps :)

    I suspect it will not be important because there will never be such a thing.

    After all, Christ is of God. Where would the antichrist come from? There's no corresponding dark power, so where could such an evil thing come from?

    And if you seriously DO believe that there is a dark force out there, then you are more gullible than the fundies.

    There. I've insulted not only the fundies but the satanists as well. Who's next? The poor benighted agnostic folks (the atheist-wanna-bes) who have the delusions that they can tell God doesn't exist?

    Heck, they can say it, but there's no way for them to know it.

    The Christians/His Church will be taken out first! (The Rapture will take place), then the anti-christ will finally be revealed. There is no more mention of The Church after Revelation 3.

    You will know who he is only if you don't go up with the rapture. He will reveal himself during the tribulation. He will be a dictator over the whole world and force people to worship him just like the dictators have been in the communist countries like in North Korea now.

    If you know Jesus as lord and savior you will definitely know when the man of sin is revealed. His revealing is the last thing to be fulfilled before the rapture.

    The Antichrist won't come forward until after the rapture has taken place. Hopefully you won't be around to find out.

    It would depend on how interpret the signs, and which school of thinking you belong to on when the rapture will happen. A sure sign of who the Anti Christ is will be when he stands in the temple and declares himself to be God

    I think we will know. He will appear and mislead many so true Christians will recognize false information just like we can with other "antichrists"
