Is the antichrist alive today? This is a good question.
According to Christianity.com:
The word, “Antichrist,” is only found in the Bible in 1 and 2 John and occurs both in singular and plural forms. It represents all that is hostile to God.
In 2 Thessalonians 2, Paul refers to this person as the Man of Lawlessness. He puts himself in place of God’s law. That’s why he’s the Man of Lawlessness. And he’s a figure who the Bible repeatedly points to arising in the end times. There have been many, clearly, who are anti-Christ in one way or another, but here is the person who will be the distillation of opposition to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
The Bible mainly discusses the Antichrist or Man of Lawlessness in the context of the last days. The last days are when evil is unleashed on earth. They will be characterized by an intense and horrifying battle between God and his enemy (2 Thessalonians 2 ; 1 John 2:18). The Bible consistently affirms that God will completely win this battle (Romans 16:20, Revelation 17:14) and that those who trust in Christ are rescued “from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son,” (Colossians 1:13). (See also: Revelation 8:38-39).
But is there more? The King James version of the Bible adds this:
15And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. 16He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. 17And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. 18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. 19Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. 21In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.
Here is one person’s take on the Antichrist:
Did Jesus tell us the Anti Christ’s name?
Interesting take on it from @auntie_coolette (Facebook), my son showed me this last night so thought I would share. Although it is speculation on her part, has no one knows the identity of the Anti-Christ but the Lord, it does raise… pic.twitter.com/pKCZH9Vpue

I shared this with a Hebrew friend of mine and she confirmed that Barak does mean lightening and has other meanings as well. And yes, bama is high place.
