The Antichrist

Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; by which 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 would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. 1 John 2:18-19

The greatest coup the devil could ever pull off would be to so possess a man with demonic power to the point that the whole world thinks that man is Jesus. If he could fool the world into thinking that man is Jesus then that would be his greatest achievement.

I’m not saying definitely that the Antichrist will claim to be Jesus but it could happen.

John says there were antichrists back then, but The Antichrist was yet to come. We should assume then that the antichrists, plural, of whom John is referring to are of the same nature as The Antichrist: that is, they splintered off from the true Church, they went out from us and became a false church, false Christians, and therefore we could assume that The Antichrist will simply be a false Christian coming in the same spirit as the antichrists of the first century. He may even claim to be Jesus.

    Knowing the meaning of an antichrist is one who not merely opposes but rather “takes the place of Christ,” are there also those who attempt to take the place of the Father as well as the Holy Spirit as well? Are there not men who attempt to take upon themselves the responsibilities solely given to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit? Would not anyone usurping any of the God-Head be antichrist as well?
    Men will receive exactly what they have been looking for when it or they appear. Invest in this world, this world shall be your lot and its end. Invest in eternity, and He will be yours for all eternity.
    If a man isn’t longing for eternity now, there’s a fair likelihood that money, football, girls or golf are just a little too important.

    Indeed, when we are talking about GOD it is like a “package deal” : for it is impossible to receive one of the Persons without receiving the others; impossible to reject one of the Persons without rejecting all; God can never be dissected or fragmented, so if a man usurps or rejects the Holy Spirit he has usurped the Father and the Son.

    Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son. Whosoever denies the Son, the same has not the Father: [but] he that confesses the Son has the Father also.
    (1John 2:22-23)

    For example, the Catholics believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in theory, on paper, and yet also believe things which deny the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All their beliefs are contradictory.

    The other day the pope implied that all religions worship the same God, which is to deny the exclusivity of Christ, that Jesus is the Christ. That is the spirit of antichrist.

    Antichrist is antichristos.

    False christs is pseudo christos.

    It would be reasonable to expect the Antichrist to be a false christ, and yes, that is one who usurps Christ and is against Christ by taking the place of Christ.

    Ultimately i think we will see that the spirit of antichrist is any other gospel than the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.
