The biggest war going on in the world today is the war between God’s side and Satan’s side. God seeks for the souls of men as well as Satan seeks out the souls of men. These two spirits have been opposing eacher other, all along since the world began to be inhabited by humans.
But after man fell God used all means by his Spirit to draw him back, and at last it was good to bring his beloved son JESUS CHRIST for one purpose! And that is reconciling us to God, that in him we may all be saved.
Likewise Satan, used all his means to drive a man away from the purpose of God and to draw him to his side, this war began from Eden, when Satan used the serpent to deceive Eve to get his first captive.
And after some period when he saw that God had brought a savior in flesh, JESUS CHRIST and drew many people to the Father, he also began to plan for a single person who would have the specific task of drawing people to him and going against the one God had chosen (ie JESUS CHRIST). Now this son of Satan is called the Antichrist.
Remember the first battle before Christ came was spirit to spirit (ie the Spirit of God against the spirit of the devil), but the last battle is MAN against man (ie JESUS CHRIST against the Antichrist).
When many Christians miss their goal, it is when they fail to understand who Jesus Christ is and who the Antichrist is. If you fail to understand who JESUS CHRIST is, you cannot understand who the Antichrist is.
These two individual are both recorded in the WORD of God(Holy Bible) in “,MYSTERIES”. It means to recognize them in fullness it require “THE REVELATION FROM THE SPIRIT OF GOD” otherwise it would be much difficult to know them in fullness. In short, let’s look at the mystery of JESUS CHRIST that has been hidden for a long time and even now some people is still hidden from their eyes.
THE MYSTERY OF JESUS CHRIST:
1 Timothy 3:16 ” And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory”.
If you read careful you will notice there is something that God kept secret, and it is a clear fact that Jesus Christ was GOD IN THE FLESH. That is the Spirit of God working in the flesh, but many did not know it and rejected and crucified him, and even today many do not know it.
For the Lord Jesus said, “John 5:43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not; if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. “
You see! the other Lord whom Jesus spoke of, that will come in his name and people receive him is the Antichrist himself … read again the following verse.
1 Corinthians 2: 6-8 ″ 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. “.
Even today people in their hearts regard JESUS CHRIST as ordinary individual as they did then, despising his words not by mouth but by deeds, but they do not know that they are rejecting and crucifying God Himself, the Lord of Glory though their deeds, Dear brother/sister the Lord Jesus shed his blood for our sins to atone for us and yet today you are playing with it?, it will come a time when this grace will no longer be there for you.
THE MYSTERY OF ANTICHRIST:
2 Thessalonians 2: 3 “ Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved”.
If you can read again verse 7, it talks about the mystery of iniquity that works in the world, and this mystery of apostasy works within the WICKED ONE(WHO IS THE ANTICHRIST HIMSELF) as the scripture mentions in verse 9, that “his work is a his own work of the devil ”. Just as the Mystery of Godliness was operating in JESUS CHRIST, and the act of Jesus was an expression of God’s own work. In the same way (Antichrist) the mystery of rebellion works in him and his action will be a reflection of Satan himself.
NOW WHO IS THE ANTICHRIST?
After the devil saw that he could not get many people who want to worship him directly as humans worship God, he decided to transform himself into an angel of Light (2Cor. 11:14), in order to trap those who showed a love for Light.
Remember that Satan does not fight with the people of this world(wicked people), not at all!…because he has caught them and are always in darkness, in his side…so he can not fight with people that works with him.
Therefore in order to gain those who follows the light, he must disguise himself as an angel of Light, so his servants must also disguise themselves as servants of light. This is where there is a fierce battle when the wolf comes in a sheep’s garment. So it requires the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to recognize the antichrist otherwise we will not know where our enemy is and how he works.
Brethren! there are many satanic and magical groups, such as freemason, rotary clubs, iluminati, ku klux klan, brotherhood, and so forth, this groups have been feared as if they were the headquarters of the devil, do not be deceived, these are the groups that the devil uses to lure non-Christians and a few Christians with not strong faith, because a true Christian who stand firmly cannot go to the witch doctor and the devil knows it, and he cannot join in any of those groups or shoot. The demon, or demon-to seek help, the devil knows perfectly well.. that is why he changed tactic on how to trap him… if he were to rely only on that path, he knows he would miss most of the Christians in the world. He realizes that a Christian in his place will meet God is in the church and that is where he follows the Christians.
Remember again, Satan works in secrecy, and that is why it is called the ” mystery of iniquity “. and it works within the Church of God when the devil wears sheep’s clothing, but on the inside he is a BLOOD KILLER (This is a secret), destroy the souls of people (true Christians) and send them to hell. He uses his cunning to make people think that they are worshiping God, while they are worshiping him. He goes into church and makes people feel that they are in the right way, but in the end it is hell,. And what he sends to hell in this way is far greater than even those other small means like magic, freemason etc. THIS IS WHEN CHRIST said ” BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS, WHICH COME TO YOU IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, BUT INWARDLY THEY ARE RAVENING WOLVES 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”.
Brethren, the Lord has not warned us to beware of witches, wizards, or freemasonry, or spiritists.
After the devil secretly enters the church of God and for a long time, we see that he began by destroying the true teachings of God and introducing pagan doctrines like worship of the dead, worshiping three gods, adding books to the WORD of God, idolatry etc. the same devil bless alcohol in the church, and he twisting the Word of God by distorting the correct baptism of water, and the Holy Spirit baptising, he did so by killing spiritual gifts, infusing ungodly politics and titles, killing doctrines of divine healing, etc.
By doing so, he succeeded in creating his own church, a “dead one” with the same name as the original church but not, at that point people think that they are worshipping the true God knowing not that they are worshipping satan., The devil gave this name to his church and called it UNIVERSAL CHURCH, the Church of the World (Catholic Church).
And he (the devil) as the god of that church, he ordained his servants, and he held the highest position in that church, which is the very title of the Papacy (and that is the title of the Antichrist himself) standing on earth as Jesus Christ stood on God’s behalf on earth. We know throughout history that catholic church became his instrument to fight against the seed of God, it succeeded in killing over 68 million Christians, who tried to go against its pagan systems. And to this day the church continues to kill many people spiritually, thinking they worship God while they are worship Satan in that church. And it will come to kill many more during the time of great tribulation.
Thus the spirit of the antichrist rests in the position or seat OF THE POPE, so anyone who remains in that position will have met all criteria to be the Antichrist.
Today’s gospel, according to our time, is not just a gospel to draw people to Christ alone, because many have rejected Christ but do not know that they worship the devil without knowing it in their denominations thinking they are right.
Brother God has already pronounced a curse on the Catholic church and all denominations that do not live under the guidance of the Holy Spirit (for these together make up the mark of the beast). For a more in-depth understanding of the mark of the beast you can read our article titled “THE MARK OF THE BEAST.”
These are the words of the Lord himself.
Revelation 18: 4-5 ″ And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities “
The Lord warns us to come out (not by the feet but by the spirit. Come out of pagan doctrines which the Lord has condemned them that whomever associates with them will take part in all his organized plagues because they have participated in the shedding of the many blood of God’s saints.
God Bless you.
