Bible prophecy gives a significant number of clear characteristics to help us identify the Antichrist.
Just imagine you were asked by a friend to pick someone up from the airport.
You have never met this person.
The first thing you want to know is how to recognise him (or her). After all, there will be hundreds of people coming off the plane.
“Oh that’s easy,” says your friend. “You see; he will be wearing a pink suit, a bright yellow tie and one high heel shoe.
He will have purple hair.
He is 80 years of age and only has one leg.”
Do you think you would miss him?
Now that is an extreme example.
But in a similar way, God gives a number of very clear identifying marks for the key players in prophecy.
This includes the Antichrist.
