“Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.”(I John 2:18 NKJV) “Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. (I John 2:22 NKJV) . “and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.” (I John 4:3 NKJV)
The prefix “anti” means opposed to or against “whatever it is attached. So with this dictionary meaning, or logic, we can conclude that anyone who denies Jesus, God, is opposed to them or against them–hence–the atheists are antichrist. From a spiritual perspective, that would mean that anyone who is influenced by Satan is “antichrist.”
We see the influence of the antichrist working in the world right now! We see it on a global level where chaos and violence reign. We see the influence in entities who wish to “change” everything that God has established, including biological functions and who is male or female. We see the influence in politics when politicians choose to promote their own ungodly agendas in lieu of making decisions that benefit all people and not just those of their ilk. We see the influence when colleges have to change their “language” to be more inclusive of those who are confused about their gender. “God is not the author of confusion,” and we know who is. We see the influence when teachers are asked to “ignore the biological assumption of gender classification” and allow children to believe they are “its” (penguins are things).
We see more of Satan’s influence on a daily basis and it is amazing that they do not realize who is influencing them. That’s blindness! Deception is one of Satan’s favorite devices to control and manipulate people. We have to remember he hates mankind and will do anything he can to destroy us because God loves us.
There is an antidote to counteract the influence–His name is Jesus and our response to anything the enemy has started is to proclaim The Name and not back down from anything the antichrist attempt.
The antichrists use “science” as their rationale to oppose God, not realizing that it is God who gives wisdom to those who research and explore, trying to understand why–things already exist! Science has not created anything from “nothing” and even the scientists are muddled with their finds that support biblical records of history. I praise God for the scientists who explore and for the inventors who invent things from those things that already exist.
And for those who say we cannot rationally believe in something we cannot see–God–here’s my answer.
I cannot see their thoughts–therefore they must not exist.
I cannot feel their thoughts–therefore they must not exist.
I cannot smell their thoughts–therefore they must not exist.
I cannot hear their thoughts–therefore they must not exist.
I cannot taste their thoughts–therefore they must not exist.
We see the “results” of a person’s thinking, just like we see the “results” of the wind–which we cannot see, but believe it exists. We cannot see oxygen, but we know it exists because we are still here, living, breathing human beings, with an established gender–male or female, biologically determined by God.
“The greater one lives in me” and therefore, since I have the mind of Christ, I will proclaim Him forever! There is none like our God, no one in the earth can do what He does or loves like He loves! Hallelujah, Jesus!
