Antichrist is not a person. There is no "the Antichrist" in the Bible. "The Antichrist" is a person invented by Lindsey and others to sell books and make $$$$$$'s.

11Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon. 12He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. 14Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.

18This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.

There are anti-christs (small "a" .. plural "s" refering to many) and then there is the anti-christ (small "a" .. no plural)

the word "anti" is to be understood as "instead of".
So there will be many messages that teach "instead of Christ" .. aka "anti-christs"

There are many teachings and people who teach them .. thus the plural.
1 John 2:22
Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist—he denies the Father and the Son.

2 John 1:7
Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.
But there is one "he" .. but since his power is already in the world 2 Thessalonians 2:7 , gets exposed and continues on till Christ's only one return 2 Thessalonians 2:8, this "he" is not a person either but a position.

And since this "he" sets himself in God's temple and is worshiped .. then "he" comes from within Christianity (God's temple").

No one person fits the description, but one position does .... the papacy.

Seen a spirit of antichrist in the spirit through the prayer of Jesus Blood , where the Lord brought this spirit to my presence to be cast down to the pit, ...But there are many other spirit who are the same spirit in darkness.... See this spirit of antichrist is a fallen angel, and it looks like a goat with a goat-tie beard, and has two horns on its head , and it says to people who can hear it ``You are a good friend to me ``...... but if you have faith in the gifts of Holy Spirit , He will tell you who the spirit is for your protection... also the Word of God says if a spirit talks to you , you are told to tell the spirit ``Jesus is Lord ` and if the spirit says no or protest , then it is not of the Lord and you must rebuke it to Jesus ......... Also this spirit of antichrist rejects the power and the works of Holy Spirit , and it will create idol to substitute the Lord Jesus and His character and ways , this spirit of antichrist will also reject the commands of Jesus as to NOT love your neighbor as your self and to NOT Love the Lord God with all your heart...... This spirit of antichrist will reason out faith in Jesus and His promises by logic of the known and worldly customs which will block Jesus and His blessing ....... This spirit will rise up on the days before Jesus comes and will influence the whole world and many Christians and religious people will be displaced and even killed and many will be martyred .... Pray for these people that the time they are to endure will be shortened Jesus has been know to have prophesied through His children...

(1 John 2:18) 18 Young children, it is the last hour, and, just as YOU have heard that antichrist is coming, even now there have come to be many antichrists; from which fact we gain the knowledge that it is the last hour.

I think the anti-Christ is the spirit of the world, the flesh and the d(evil) that is opposed to all that God is. The spirit of anti-Christ opposes all of God's virtue and bears false witness against the Holy Spirit. The spirit of anti-Christ uses the power of fear and particularly the fear of death to rule in the world.

It is no doubt going to be a Jew...And where is HaShem's Holy Temple?...
