Question: A lady I know asked if the Antichrist is both a spirit and a person. The spirit of the Antichrist is what Hitler and the pharaoh had. Is there an actual person who will be the Antichrist? Is it also a system? I always understood the Antichrist to be both a sprit and a person.

Answer: 1 John 2:18 says, 'Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.' This verse indicates that many people have the spirit of antichrist, but 'the Antichrist' is one individual.
