ST. AUGUSTINE ON THE ANTI-CHRIST

St. Augustine states that the anti-Christ is an individual.  The events surrounding the anti-Christ terrified Daniel and gave him a headache.  Augustine adds that, even  if you are half-asleep, you will be fully awake when you see the fierce attack on the Church planned by the anti-Christ.

"The mystery of iniquity is already at work..."  i.e. the wicked and the hypocrites who remain within the Church.  When these traitors have reached a number so great as to shake the foundation of the Church, this large number of subversives working within the Church to destroy her is the "mystery of iniquity at work." 

So Augustine encourages Christians to be strong until the subversives within the Church are revealed and identified, taken away and spewed out of the bosom of the Church:  "They went out from us but they were not of us."  Unmasked, they will now join the anti-Christ.
