    Precept upon precept.


    John 4:25 Christ = the messiah
    Mark 15:32 Christ = the messiah = the King of Israel
    John 12:13 Christ = the messiah = the King of Israel = Jesus the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

    "Anti"- meaning instead of and against - Christ = the messiah = the King of Israel = Jesus the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

    What will make the person the Antichrist is that he will be anointed the King of Israel - instead of and against Jesus the rightful King of Israel.

    I agree with the above, but I would go a little further.

    For example... here are some prophesies about the Messiah. This was before anyone knew who "Jesus" was.

    Isa 9:6; For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

    Isa 7:14; "Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.

    That last verse works in conjunction with...

    Matt 1:23; "BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD AND SHALL BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL," which translated means, "GOD WITH US."

    The Jews believe the Messiah would be God Himself. The Bible says the "anti-christ" will deny this.

    1 Jn 2:22; Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.

    There are many prophesies about Jesus in the OT (we have covered just about all of them here on TJ at one time or another)
    But if you don't believe the Messiah is the person in the two verses in Isaiah, there is a problem. If you don't believe Jesus is the person in the two verses in Isaiah, there is a bigger problem.

    Compare this verse with John 1.

    John 1:1; In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    Joh 1:14; And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

    The "Word" here is God. The "Word" here is Jesus. God became flesh and dwelt among us.

    2 Jn 1:7; For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist.

    Anyone who doesn't acknowledge Jesus is "Christ" (the Messiah/God).. God in the flesh... is the antichrist. There are many who acknowledge that Jesus (the human man) came in the flesh. But not very many who acknowledge that Jesus (the only begotten Son of God) came in the flesh.

    Col 2:9; For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form,
