This past Sunday the Lord showed me clearly in His word who the antichrist. Many times it has been said the antichrist is a man,666, the beast, etc. But when you look a the scriptures, it makes it clear who the antichrist is.
I John 2:18-19, 22,23 says: "Little children it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. THEY WENT OUT FROM US, BUT THEY WERE NOT OF US; FOR IF THEY HAD BEEN OF US, THEY WOUD NOT DOUBT HAVE CONTINUED WITH US: BUT THEY WENT OUT, THAT THEY MIGHT BE MADE MANIFEST THAT THEY WERE NOT ALL OF US. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? HE IS ANTICHRIST, THAT DENIETH THE FATHER AND THE SON. WHOSOEVER DENIETH THE SON, THE NAME HATH NOT THE FATHER; BUE HE THAT ACKNOWLEDGETH THE SON HATH THE FATHER ALSO."
Now, it don't get no plainer than that. Look at what the scriptures are saying. The Apostle John is saying they went out from us. That means they sat among the teaching of Christ. They knew the teaching of Christ. Even though they sat among the teaching they still were not of the Lord. How many set in Church week after week and still do not know who Jesus is? Quote scriptures, sing, testify and do not know who Jesus is? How many have fallen by the wayside because of sin or the cares of the world? How many stop going to church because of people? They did not continue. According to scripture is one does not continue then he or she is not one of "us".
How many still deny Jesus? Come against the Jesus Name baptism? Have not been baptized in the Name of Jesus for the remission of your sin? Still believe in the Father , Son and the Holy Ghost as three different people? How many believe in the trinity? If you believe in the trinity, thats antichrist. Jesus said he and the father are one (John 10:30)..
How many still do not believe that Jesus is the Messiah? The scripture said 'who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? Isaiah prophesied that the Messiah would be called Immanuel (God with us in Isaiah 7:14) I Timothy 3:16 says 'God was manifest in the flesh...' The Bible says the word is God. Therefore, if one goes against the word, that's antichrist too. It's tight but it is right. To deny Jesus Christ as the only true wise God and Savior of the world is the spirit of antichrist. Verse 18 of I John 3 says there are many antichrists.
When one looks around and see the fall away going on. Seeing how men, women, boys and girls are running more towards the word that to the Lord, turning away holiness one must realize the work of the antichrist is in full force. The Bible goes on to say if it were possible, the very elect will be fooled. Matthew 24:24 says, "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
What do you believe?
