What is Antichrist?

 

Antichrist

 

1 John 2: 15-29

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. 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. 19 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. 20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 21 I have not written to you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. 26 These things have I written to you concerning them that seduce you. 27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. 29 If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.  2 John 1:7

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.  1 John 2:22

Sin is really simply failure to attain to God's high calling for our lives.  That calling is very high and too wonderful for the human mind to understand (given the current corrupted condition of that mind because of the fall).  God created the universe for a purpose.  Mankind was created in a position to rule over that creation.  When Adam and Eve obeyed Satan in the garden, they became servants of Satan.  This servitude was passed on from generation to generation, and since, because of the weakness of the human, each generation continued to obey Satan (rather than obeying God), each generation became servant of Satan and none was able to break free.  None was able to attain to the high calling of God.  All fell short.

For this reason, God sent Jesus, the Christ, the very incarnation of God, the Second Person of the Triune God.  Jesus paid the price for mankind to win their forgiveness.  Jesus opened the door for every willing person to break free from slavery to Satan and to become servant of God.  There is much to this story, but the bottom line is that God has opened up the door for all who are willing to attain to the glory that God originally planned for mankind, a glory too high to imagine or understand, a salvation to marvelous to grasp.

God is working out a long-term plan, and, as part of His plan, He is allowing Satan to operate.  God knows exactly how He will bring humanity through everything.  In the meantime, Satan is against Christ or anti-Christ.  Satan wants to see you, and every other person, continue in failure.  That is what antichrist is all about.

Antichrist.  One who is against Christ.  Literally, anything that is a substitute for Christ.

Divisions in the Church are antichrist.  Not discerning the Body of Christ, not seeing Christ in your born-again brother and sister is antichrist.
