When the time comes for the antiChrist to emerge, does the antiChrist know he is the antiChrist? Like, has he always known? Or is it something that just manifests when the time is right?

I would say that they would know. They will claim to be Christ, a savior, they will perform amazing acts and miracles causing many to follow him. He will demand worship of him. I would assume he would come seemingly out of nowhere. No family. Can't imagine the anti-christ being a cute cuddly baby lol.

Just my thoughts from what I remember reading in the Bible.

No you’re right about his false miracles or whatever. But I wonder if it’s something that just happens one day or is he groomed? Idk. Just came to me one day and I didn’t have an answer.

I would say they are groomed by the devil. I say "they" because only God knows when the events of Revelation will be started, and so the devil has likely had to prepare multiple "successors" these past couple millennia.

What if the Gnostic Jesus is the "real" Jesus and the new testament Jesus is the antichrist?

It seem to fit cofefeovertea1776 description of the NT Jesus.

1 John 4:3

This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

So the antichrist was alive during John's life time.

The NT was written AFTER the OT. Extremely easy to fulfill prophecies after the fact. According to this article, very few prophecies were fulfilled. It even says, "Messiah would be named Immanuel (“God with us,” deity) [Isa. 7:14]"

It says "spirit" of the antichrist. That's Satan specifically working against (anti) the message of Christ and the Holy Spirit.
