How to Identify the Antichrist

"Guard thyself then, O man; thou hast the signs of Antichrist; and remember them not only thyself, but impart them also freely to all. If thou hast a child according to the flesh, admonish him of this now; if thou hast begotten one through catechizing, put him also on his guard, lest he receive the false one as the True. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work. I fear these wars of the nations; I fear the schisms of the Churches; I fear the mutual hatred of the brethren. But enough on this subject; only God forbid that it should be fulfilled in our days; nevertheless, let us be on our guard."

St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Bishop and Father of the Church; Lecture XV


The following is a compilation of certain public and private prophecies in respect of definitive characteristics of the Antichrist. While the list is not comprehensive, it should be most helpful in identifying the Evil Incarnate, Man of Perdition. Refer to the corresponding footnotes which follow.


What Have We Been Told About the Antichrist?

It has been predicted that the Antichrist: (a) will be a lawless man of perdition; (b) who will deny that Jesus is the Christ; (c) utter blasphemous words; (d) the number of the Antichrist is 666;  (e) he is living in England at this time; (f) he will declare himself with a different name than we knew him by previously; (g) we have seen his public relations man already; (h) the Antichrist will create signs and wonders; (i) he will be an Arabic, Muslim religious leader; (j) will go to Egypt to be anointed by occult priests in a publicized ceremony; (k) will come out of Egypt; (l) will be a man of false peace; (m) will broker a false peace among the Arabs and Jews (and others); (n) there will be two such false peaces; (o) the Warning will signal the beginning of the Antichrist coming to power; (p) he will control the Revived Roman Empire; (q) i.e., the European Union; (r) rule the world; (s) rule from Rome; (t) for less than 3 1/2 years; (u) will sit in the Catholic Church and declare himself god; (v) will abolish the daily sacrifice and oblation (The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass); (w) do not look at a picture of his face nor listen to his voice as he will have demonic powers from Hell to hypnotize people, or via subliminal messages contained in television broadcasts or computer monitors to affect our subconscious minds to worship him; (x) we must discard our television sets, computer monitors (screens), radios, newspapers and magazines; (y) we must discard certain electronic equipment (e.g., cell phones, pagers, pda’s, smart cards, EZ tag toll passes, GPS units, satellite dishes, household appliances containing a chip, etc.) as he and his people can track us via satellites; (z) we must do this after the Warning; (aa) we must discard all electrical communication devices in our homes after the Warning as he can monitor us (e.g., telephones, cable television, high definition televisions sets, fax machines, emails over the Internet); (bb) we must discard all newspapers and the above mentioned electrical devices before the Warning also if we see one claiming to be the Christ, hear evil things on the radio, or see pictures or quotations from the Antichrist in the newspapers;  (cc) late model automobiles after 1984 have the chip in their electronic ignition systems and can be tracked; (dd) the Antichrist will force people to accept the Mark of the Beast (the subdermal microchip); (ee) the Mark of the Beast will control your minds; (ff) he will persecute Christians; (gg) those who make the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be fully-protected; (hh) the Antichrist’s reign will be short, and Our Lord will end it with His comet of chastisement striking the Atlantic Ocean; (ii) which will cause the 3 days of darkness while the armies are gathered at Armageddon and end the Antichrist’s reign; (jj) then, Our Lord will purify the Earth and setup His Era of Peace with the new Heaven and the new Earth.



"But this aforesaid Antichrist is to come when the times of the Roman empire shall have been fulfilled, and the end of the world is now drawing near. There shall rise up together ten kings of the Romans, reigning in different parts perhaps, but all about the same time; and after these an eleventh, the Antichrist, who by his magical craft shall seize upon the Roman power; and of the kings who reigned before him, three he shall humble, and the remaining seven he shall keep in subjection to himself. At first indeed he will put on a show of mildness (as though he were a learned and discreet person), and of soberness and benevolence: and by the lying signs and wonders of his magical deceit having beguiled the Jews, as though he were the expected Christ, he shall afterwards be characterized by all kinds of crimes of inhumanity and lawlessness, so as to outdo all unrighteous and ungodly men who have gone before him displaying against all men, but especially against us Christians, a spirit murderous and most cruel, merciless and crafty. And after perpetrating such things for three years and six months only, he shall be destroyed by the glorious second advent from heaven of the only-begotten Son of God, our Lord and Savior Jesus, the true Christ, who shall slay Antichrist with the breath of His mouth, and shall deliver him over to the fire of hell.". (St. Cyril, Archbishop of Jerusalem and Father of the Church; Lecture XV; 315-386 A.D.).

"Antichrist is, therefore, as we said, the offspring of fornication and is nurtured in secret, and on a sudden he rises up and rebels and assumes rule. And in the beginning of his rule, or rather tyranny, he assumes the role of sanctity. But when he becomes master he persecutes the Church of God and displays all his wickedness. But he will come with signs and lying wonders, fictitious and not real, and he will deceive and lead away from the living God those whose mind rests on an unsound and unstable foundation, so that even the elect shall, if it be possible, be made to stumble."
. (St. John Damascene, Doctor of the Church; An Exposition of the Orthodox Faith IV Ch. XXVI; Born 676 A.D.).

Jesus said: "My people, this vision of a setting sun is another example representing the end times which you are living in. I have told you that many will see My coming in glory in your lifetime which is a real message of hope and not despair. You are seeing many signs in the sky and on the ground that war appears imminent between the Moslems and the Christians. It is not by accident that I showed you
the Antichrist as an Arab and a religious leader... Many have been pointing out to you that the Moslem religion does have militant meaning in its roots. When I came into the world, I have taught a message of love, but many refuse My message to preserve their own traditions. I have given you the full truth about Myself and the Trinity, and all other religions contain only elements of the truth. Those religions, who preach hate and domination as the only option, are being misled by the evil one. Be thankful, My faithful, that you have been blessed with knowing Me, but you must still love everyone, even those who are hostile to you." (Message to John Leary on October 5, 2001- yet-to-be-approved by the Church)

Jesus said: "My people, this vision is a god of the dark side with its source rooted in Egypt. Just as I came out of Egypt to go back to Israel, so
the Antichrist will come out of Egypt. on his road to his public ministry that was intended for three or more years. I will shorten this time of trial for the sake of My elect, but be aware of this evil one who soon will be announcing his coming into power. Evil will have its reign for a short time, but you can call on Me for protection. It is to avoid the influence of the Antichrist's demonic powers that I am having My angels guide you to places of refuge for protection. These evil ones will want to kill My faithful to eliminate My Church on earth, but the gates of hell will not prevail over My remnant Church. Trust in Me during this age of apostasy because your salvation and protection depend on Me only. Rejoice that when you see the Antichrist announce his reign, then know that My victory over all evil is near. It is like Scripture says, you will not travel through the towns of Israel before I will come in glory." (Mt 10:23) …. (Message to John Leary on October 3, 2001- yet-to-be-approved by the Church)  

 Jesus said: "My people, this vision of Egyptian gods of the occult is where the Antichrist will visit to get his blessing just as the prophets were anointed by My holy people.  Everything that I did and represented will be mocked by the evil one whom I will allow to declare himself as ruler of the world at the proper hour.  Thus the Antichrist will come out of Egypt as a man of peace just as I came from there, but I did not seek these occult gods."

Jesus said: "My people, it will be by My authority that the hour of the Antichrist will be announced and I will allow his brief reign.  This beast will be working with the one world people to gain gradual control of all of the government unions that govern each corner of the earth.  He will come at first as a man of peace, but he will soon become a tyrant leader as he will replace all of the leaders of the nations with his own people.   When you see this declaration and enthronement, My faithful should be at My refuges or on their way to one.  Fear not these evil ones for I will soon come in victory to defeat them." 
(Mt 2:13-20 and Hos 11:1)…. (Message to John Leary on April 26, 2007 - yet-to-be-approved by the Church)

Jesus said: "My people, this is an ominous sign of the old gods of Egypt that represented the occult worship of the demons. I have given you a word that the
Antichrist would go to Egypt to be anointed by the occult priests of these old gods.  This ceremony will receive great acclaim among the one world people who are supporting the Antichrist and will bring him into power in the European Union. The open jaws of this crocodile mean that this event could happen soon as the Antichrist is anxious to devour as many souls as he can with his demonic powers through his eyes. I have told you to not look at him because of his powers to mesmerize people to worship him. Do not have fear of this evil one for My power is greater and the Antichrist's reign will be brief, but this hour of darkness is about to spread all over the earth. This is why My faithful will need to seek out My refuges of protection with My angels so you will not be killed or persecuted by these evil ones. Have patience but awhile and I will soon come in victory to defeat them and bring about My Era of Peace. "  (Message to John Leary on August 23, 2007- yet-to-be-approved by the Church)

Jesus said: "My people, this empty chair with Egyptian markings on it represents the chair of power for the Antichrist. He will be going to Egypt to be anointed by the high priest of Satan. He will be put in charge of the European Union  and he will have his brief reign before I will bring his power to a close with My Comet of Chastisement. Do not have any fear of the evil ones, for I will protect you from being persecuted when you are made invisible. Trust in Me and you will soon see My victory once you see the Antichrist taking his seat of power. "  (Message to John Leary on April 24, 2008- yet-to-be-approved by the Church)

Our Lady said: "… But what is its name?
--- In the thirteenth chapter of the Apocalypse, it is written, "This calls for wisdom. Let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast: it represents a human name. And the number in question is 666 (six hundred and sixty-six)." (Rv 13:18). With intelligence, illumined by the light of divine wisdom, one can succeed in deciphering from the number, 666, the name of a man and this name, indicated by such a number, is that of the Antichrist.

Lucifer, the ancient serpent, the devil or Satan, the Red Dragon, becomes, in these last times, the Antichrist. The Apostle John already affirmed that whoever denies that Jesus Christ is God, that person is the Antichrist. The statue or idol, built in honor of the Beast to be adored by all men, is the Antichrist.

Calculate now its number, 666, to understand how it indicates the name of a man. The number, 333, indicates the divinity. Lucifer rebels against God through pride, because he wants to put himself above God. 333 is the number which indicates the mystery of God. He who wants to put himself above God bears the sign, 666, and consequently
this number indicates the..name of Lucifer, Satan,..that is to say, of him who sets himself against Christ, of the Antichrist…" …… (Excerpt of Our Lady's message to Fr. Stefano Gobbi #407 entitled: "The Number of the Beast: 666" and dated June 17, 1989. (33) For the complete message see Recommended Reading below.)



The Number of His Name

“…This calls for wisdom: let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, its number is six hundred and sixty-six.”
(Rv 13:18)

Certain of the ancients assigned number values to the letters of their alphabets.  The Apocalypse of John (it’s official title) was written in Greek by St. John (a Jew), while on the island of Patmos (a Roman Province).   An interesting question arises in attempting to decipher the riddle of Rv 13:18:    Does one use the Hebrew numbering system, as St. John was a Jew; the Latin numbering system, as he was in a Roman Province during its writing; or the Greek numbering system, as the book was written in Greek?

We submit that as Revelation was written in Greek, it would follow contextually that the Greek numbering system (Isopsephia) should be used in testing the names of End Times personages.  We would add that one should analyze their names not only in their native language, but in the Greek equivalent, also.  That is to say, that
the Greek form of personal names is very important.  Lastly, as we discussed in length in Upon This Rock, the changing of names indicates an elevation in authority.  Accordingly, it would follow that we analyze their birth names, as well as their names after such changes.

The Isopsephia

The Era of Peace.




"The Lord knows how to rescue the Godly from trial, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment"
(2 Pt 2:9)


 "At that time there shall arise Michael, the great prince, guardian of your people…"
(Dn 12:1)


"St. Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray, and do thou O' prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God cast into hell, Satan and the evil spirits, who roam the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen."

Prepared with the grace of God
By Ben J. Verdina, December 2008 (Edited: September, 2016)


An Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary 

I, (your name), a faithless sinner-- renew and ratify today in thy hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.

In the presence of all the heavenly court I choose thee this day, for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present and future; leaving to thee the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to thy good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity. Amen.


An Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Abyss of Mercy and Source of every grace and blessing, I consecrate and unite myself to You without exception or reserve - all that I am and all that I have, both temporal and spiritual, past present and future, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, your Mother.

I leave myself entirely at Your disposal with complete confidence in Your Mercy and Love and I beg You to look upon this offering of my nothingness before You and to use me for Your own glory, for the honor of Your Mother and for the salvation of souls. Help me to seek You alone in all things. Hide me in the shelter of Your Most Sacred Heart and be my only Consolation and Refuge.

Grant me the graces I need to joyfully accept Your Cross daily, to lead a holy life and to die a holy death in Your service. Help me to trust completely in Your Mercy and Love and never to fear to humbly throw myself before the infinite Ocean of mercy which is Your Most Sacred Heart, especially at those times when I may fail in my faithfulness in Your service. Through this weak and miserable instrument, may Your Mercy, Love, glory and power shine forth. Above all, set my poor heart on fire with the Flame of Love which burns in Your Most Sacred Heart, and teach me how to return love for Love. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on me - for I place all my trust in You.


How To Save Your Children

During one of the cenacles which Fr. Gobbi held in the United States, he was urged by many concerned people to ask Our Lady specifically what could be done to save the youth from the seductions of the world which were leading many of them astray and causing them to leave the Church. Our Lady gave Fr. Gobbi this definite and final solution to console the parents who are so concerned about the salvation of their children: 


Pray the Rosary !


Every time you pray the Rosary say: "With this Rosary I bind all my children to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.".


In doing so, Our Lady promised "to see to their souls.".


Through several private prophecies, yet-to-be-approved, we have been told that St. Joseph has been given extended power during these End Times. Remember that Our Heavenly Father thought enough of him to have him protect His Incarnate Son, and Our Blessed Mother.


The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come; before you I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate! Despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
