There are many Antichrists

The Bible mentions antichrist in exactly four verses, all in the Epistles of John: 1 John 2:18, 1 John 2:22, 1 John 4:3, and 2 John 1:7. In ALL contexts "antichrist" means someone who opposes the message of Christ and in no sense is it intended to represent a single person who will unite the entire world and wreak havoc.
The Beast mentioned in Revelation =/= the antichrist.
To answer your question, in a sense the antichrist is with us today...and has been with us since First Century Palestine...and will be with us in the future...in the form of anyone who opposes the message of Christ.

John used the term “antichrist” five times. It refers to an entity that opposes what the Bible teaches about Jesus Christ and includes impostors who present themselves as Christ or as sent by him.
Those promoting these ideas assume that John pointed to just one antichrist. But what do his words show? Consider 1 John 2:18: “Just as you have heard that antichrist is coming, even now there have come to be many antichrists.”
Yes, many antichrists, not one, were responsible for the spiritually troubled situation back in the first century. Today there are, not one, but many antichrists who form the antichrist class.
The apostle John stated: “Who is the liar if it is not the one that denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one that denies the Father and the Son.” 1 John 2:22
Apostates and leaders of false worship twist the clear teachings of Jesus into knots of religious deceit. Such ones reject Bible truth and spread lies in the name of God and Christ.
They deny the true relationship of the Father and the Son by their Trinity doctrine. Therefore, they too are a part of the antichrist.
He that is not on my side is against me, and he that does not gather with me scatters. Luke 11:23
Here Jesus proclaims that all who oppose him and the divine purposes he supports fall into the category of the antichrist.
1 John 2:22 (NIV)
Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist he denies the Father and the Son.

In Christian eschatology, the Antichrist or anti-Christ is someone recognized as fulfilling the Biblical prophecies about one who will oppose Christ and substitute himself in Christ's place before the Second Coming.
The term (including one plural form) is found five times in the New Testament, solely in the First and Second Epistle of John. The Antichrist is announced as the one "who denies the Father and the Son."
The similar term pseudokhristos or "false Christ" is found in the Gospels. In Matthew (chapter 24) and Mark (chapter 13), Jesus alerts his disciples not to be deceived by the false prophets, which will claim themselves as being Christ, performing "great signs and wonders". Two other images often associated with the Antichrist are the "little horn" in Daniel's final vision and the "man of sin" in Paul the Apostle's Second Epistle to the Thessalonians.
In Islamic eschatology, Al-Masih ad-Dajjal (المسيح الدجال) is an anti-messiah figure (similar to the Christian concept of an antichrist) who will appear to deceive humanity before the second coming of "Isa", as Jesus is known by Muslims.
The concept of an antichrist is absent in traditional Judaism, although in some medieval texts the symbolic figure Armilus appears.
