2 CORINTHIANS 11:14-15 "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."
There is great confusion in our world today concerning the Antichrist. The scripture above is Biblical proof that Satan is the evil Antichrist that will rise to power during the greatly feared tribulation of the last days. He will have supernatural power to do miraculous things as is clearly described in your Bible, and that will cause many to actually believe he is God. Most Bible scholars are in full agreement that the tribulation will be seen in the latter days, and it will force desperate economic, military, and political diasters upon the entire world. This will give a perfect setting for the Antichrist to come to power with a brilliant seven year plan for world peace that will solve the economic instability and offer world wide religious freedom. The Bible shows that his power base includes the leading nations of Europe, whose leaders will give him their financial strength and support. The great prophet, Ezekiel, saw all this and describes the beast (Satan) as a ruler of Magog, which Biblically describes Russia and is directly north of Israel as the Bible also points out. Your Bible shows a lot about the Antichrist. Daniel wrote that he would have no desire for women; he will be a homosexual, but our world is already accepting homosexuals and that will not hinder Antichrist.
But to save space for this comment we need to consider the seven year peace pact the Antichrist will promote. It will actually appear as a covenant where Jerusalem will become an international city in which all world religions will have equal rights. The Jews will be permitted to rebuild their Temple and revive all their old customs of ritual worship. He will be a military genius. There will be several major wars in his 7 year rein and he will win them all. He will enter the Temple of God and declare that he is God. He will allow no worship of any god but himself, and will impose his mark of the infamous 666 where no one can buy or sell without it being seen on their forehead and in their right hand. No one can buy anything to eat without that mark. It will cause death by starvation for millions and worldwide misery. He will then break the covenant he promoted and invade Israel from the North as shown in your Bible. Jesus will end the 7 year rein of Antichrist at His return to earth in the battle of Armageddon. The time for all this is drawing near.
