CHRIST AND THE ANTICHRIST
THE ANTICHRIST: In the book of Daniel he is called "the king of the north". He comes at 6th trump, 6th vial, 6th seal. 666.
This was written near the end of the first-century C.E.
(1 John 4:3) And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
By “last hour” John evidently meant the end of the apostolic period. The other apostles had died, and John himself was very old.
(1 John 2:18) 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.
Some of those identified as antichrist—Persons who deny that Jesus is truly the Messiah:
(1 John 2:22) “Who is the liar if it is not the one that denies that Jesus is the Christ [or, Messiah, anointed one]? This is the antichrist.”
All who deny that Jesus is the unique Son of God:
(1 John 2:22) “This is the antichrist, the one that denies the Father and the Son.” Compare John 10:36; Luke 9:35.
Apostates: Those who oppose Christ’s true followers
(1 John 2:18, 19) “There have come to be many antichrists . . . They went out from us, but they were not of our sort.”
(John 15:20, 21) “If they have persecuted me, they will persecute you also . . . But they will do all these things against you on account of my name.”
Individuals and nations that oppose Christ as King or that themselves falsely claim the Messianic role:
(Psalms 2:2) “The kings of the earth take their stand and high officials themselves have massed
together as one against Jehovah and against his anointed one [Christ, or Messiah].”
See also: (Revelation 17:3, 12-14; 19:11-21).
(Matt. 24:24) “False Christs and false prophets will arise and will give great signs and wonders so as to mislead, if possible, even the chosen ones.”
THE CHRIST: Will reveal himself to the world after the 7th seal is broken.
(Revelation 5:1-5) 1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
(1 Thessalonians 5:1-4) But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 FOR YOURSELVES KNOW PERFECTLY THAT DAY OF THE LORD SO COMETH AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
Christ comes as "A thief in the night", but this is not on the last day where every eye will see him. Now here is the wisdom for those that have eyes to see and ears to hear!
(John 14:18-26) I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. 25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
HERE'S THE WISDOM OF THE SAINTS:
Those who have not received wisdom from the world, but instead have received wisdom from above. Not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
(1 Corinthians 2:6-16) 6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth, not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.
PROPHECY IS BEING FULFILLED BEFORE OUR EYES:
The Beast (corrupt government), and The Harlot that's riding it (his corrupt bride, the false religions of this world) are being exposed to the Truth, The Way, and the Life. Yes, Christ is here AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT (this is not the time where every eye will see him just yet (1 Thessalonians 5:1-4), only those with spiritual eyes can see him) and Christ is exposing the corrupt with the brightness of his coming (John 14:19).
All praises be to God our Father and to HIs Son and our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!
