What is the abomination of desolation in Matthew 24:15? (United Kingdom)

How can I identify Antichrist while he/she accepts that Jesus came in the flesh?

The word antichrist, first mentioned in 1 John 2:18, is the compound Greek word antichristos.  “Anti” means “in opposition to,” or, “in place of” and “Christ” means “anointed.” Consequently, in order to understand who anti-Christ is — those who take “a position in place of Christ”— we need to determine who the real “Anointed” is. ​ [...]
