It is worth noting who talks about the antichrist in the New Testament. The very one who argues that Jesus is YHWH God the Creator and not an Angel. To John, the Deceiver and the Antichrist is the same (2 John 1:7). In Revelation 12:9, He identifies the Deceiver as Satan and Devil and Dragon and Old Serpent. So, Satan is known as the Old Serpent, the Dragon, the Devil, the Antichrist, the Deceiver of the whole world.
When we act, we do so under one of the two influences: the spirit of Satan or the Spirit of God. We can do both good and evil deeds.
God wants us to be perfect in doing good all the times. He is ready to forgive us whenever we become cognizant of our sins and ask for forgiveness and abandon our sins. God does not allow us to carry on with even one sin.
Because Satan knows that God requires absolute obedience, Satan does not mind our imperfection. He will brandish the case of Adam and Eve to show that no matter how perfect God makes us, we still can fail. Even though he has to go through deceptive tactics of misrepresentations to get us to fall.
God the Father counters Satan by sending YHWH God, with whom we share the same genes (Genesis 1:26, Psalms 82:6, John 10:34-36) to show that, yes, we can be perfect as long as we do not deviate from the same will of God.
