It is an interesting article this one:

Quote

The first epistle of John introduces an important distinction between “the” Antichrist who will come and the many antichrists who are already active in the world. This distinction not only enabled believers to denigrate contemporaries as “antichrists” without having to label a single individual as “the” Antichrist but also allowed them to identify the “body of Antichrist” as a collectivity existing in the present but destined to have its day of triumph in the future.

 

AND

 

Quote

Nevertheless, early Christians tended to emphasize the coming of the one great Antichrist. The Revelation to John refers to this figure as “the Beast from the Abyss” (11:7) and “the Beast from the Sea” (13:1). In the most sustained account of his appearance, II Thessalonians 2:1-12, he is called “the man of sin” and “son of perdition.” He will come at a time of a general apostasy, deceive people with signs and wonders, sit in the temple of God, and claim to be God himself. Finally, he will be defeated by Jesus, who will destroy him by “the spirit of his mouth” and “the brightness of his coming” (2:8).

People have thought for Centuries that "they are in the end times" - in the 1400s, 1500s, 1600s and so forth.

 

I think things are so FUCKING BAD ALL AROUND THIS TIME that yes, this may actually be the end times.

 

I think the same thing at the moment, because many indicators speak for it ... we have to put our fears aside and fight together, no matter how it turns out

 

I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees
