“Every spirit who confesses Jesus to be the Christ [Messiah] is from God. But every spirit who does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist; you have heard that he is coming, and he is already in the world now.” ~ 1 John 4:2-3
The spirit of the antichrist is present among the nations and peoples now, and very soon the physical manifestation will appear on the scene. This according to scripture as to the monitoring of the times and seasons.
There will be a catalyst that will usher in the physical manifestation though, and that catalyst must have global ramifications. It has been stated that personal change is brought about through chaos or traumatic circumstances. The recent pandemic proved this philosophy to be true; by utilizing life-altering conditions and fear-mongering – the spirit that is at work in the world was able to have its way with the vast majority of the global human population, of which the repercussions of individual lives are still being affected.
Most people are either familiar, or have heard about, the “mark of the beast” that the antichrist will enact in order for all people to buy or sell. Currently, this is not possible, as each country has its own printed currency in use. In order to do away with printed currency, the adoption of “digital currency” will have to be universal. This push is well underway. A vast majority of people worldwide no longer use printed currency – its all done via cellular devices. But, in order to bring all persons into alignment, the world will require an economic event so profound that all (or most) global economies will crash. I believe that it is at this point in time that the physical manifestation of the antichrist will occur.
People that do not hold-fast to the Word of God, and endeavor to obey the Lord in all aspects of their life, will be more-than-willing to do what they are told to do in order to get things back to “normal” – even if that means injecting a microchip or any other foreign object/substance into the body. The methodology has already been proven to be effective.
How can one be strong enough to resist the antics of the antichrist, and its spirit?
There is only one way. We must first accept Jesus Christ as our only source of salvation. If we have been truly saved by grace, accepted by faith, then by the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit our lifestyle will begin to change to become more Christlike in all of our thoughts, words, actions and deeds. This doesn’t just magically happen overnight, and it does require an effort on our part. In order to gain insight as to how we are to live our lives as true children of God, we must get into the Word of God – the Bible. As we delve into the Word, the Holy Spirit will guide us into understanding of the desires that God has of us during this short journey upon earth. We must be obedient to the understanding that we are given by the Holy Spirit. If we are not obedient, then we are declaring that we understand better than God what is best for us and our life; in this case, a disobedient person cannot claim to have a personal relationship with God, the Creator – but, as a matter-of-fact – have made themselves their own “god”. A person like that will not have the Godly wisdom, knowledge and strength to recognize and resist the desires and wishes of the antichrist upon their very life and soul.
According to the Word of God, the spirit of the antichrist and the beast are described to us as follows:
“All those who live on the earth will worship him [the beast], everyone whose name was not written from the foundation of the world in the Book of Life of the Lamb [Jesus Christ] who was slaughtered.” ~ Revelation 13:8
I haven’t shared this with you in an attempt cause fear – it is being shared in the hope that it will open the eyes of those that have been blinded by the spirit of the antichrist – that is working 24/7 to deceive as many human beings as possible. There is only one hope found in the entire world – and that is through a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no other way.
Do you desire this hope for yourself? Send me a message, and I will gladly pray with/for you.
