The Real Antichrist,

an explanation on how it works and can be seen.

The world religious leaders have been teaching for years that a man or a world leader will rise up someday and proclaim himself to be God. They call him the Antichrist. They teach that he will control the world in an evil way and bring chaos to mankind and that he will do this during a 7 year period called the Great Tribulation. And because they believe this, they go about accusing world leaders of being him, the Antichrist who will rise up. This has been going on now for decades, but is this really what the bible says, or is this teaching a myth?

To start, no where in the bible does it say that a man will rise up into power and rule the world before the return of Jesus. Where ironically, Jesus is a man who will rule the world when he comes back. But before that time, there is no prophecy making a claim the Antichrist is a man or a world leader. In fact the bible says just the opposite and explains that it is merely a spirit.

THE REAL ANTICHRIST IS DESCRIBED BY THE BIBLE:

  • 1 John 2:8 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.

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

  • 1 John 4:3 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, "

  • 2 John 1:7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

As you can tell, the Antichrist came into the world over 2000 years ago and is described by John as being a spirit. He also goes on to explain that there are many because he is recognizing there are many people who are following this spirit. If the Antichrist was going to be one single person that would rise up just before Jesus returns, John would have mentioned it. He did not.

As you can also tell by how John decsribed it, the Antichrist has nothing to do with a seven year tribulation period. While that alone should be enough to convince people to stop going around teaching other people to believe an Antichrist man is coming in the future, it is not. It seems, people have added to it and have taught a false Antichrist for years.

The false Antichrist teaching is based on the book of Daniel and the 70th week. This however, is not what Daniel was talking about. This section is limited to explaining about the Antichrist itself. After all, if you don't what the Antichrist is, then how can the book of Daniel show you what is going on there?

The content below is about showing the real Antichrist and how it works and can be seen just by listening to people talk, especially preachers. Yes, many preachers are assisting this spirit everyday, and probably don't even know it. The following is a breakdown on how the Antichrist works and can be seen. You may notice, it doesn't take very many factors to reveal it.




    He who has ears to hear, let him hear! Mat 11:15

    for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, ... to another discerning of spirits. 1 Cor 12:8 & 10

Sometimes the ability to discern spirits cannot be done without some kind of knowledge first. Even the apostles had to learn about demons and spirits before they could act on them or cast them out. The subject of spirits was not taught under the old ways until Jesus came and enlightened them.

The same is still today, we have to learn what a spirit is and how to recognize it before we can act on it.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 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. 1 John 4:1-3

This tells us without doubt that the Antichrist so many are seeking is only a spirit, a spirit of deception. To learn how to see the Spirit of the Antichrist and how it is working you need knowledge. Well, John just gave us that knowledge, but it's up to you to learn the difference between it and the Holy Spirit. To start, knowing bible scripture will help you a lot, and by comparing them to what is being taught you can learn to see what is hidden, namely the spirit of the Antichrist and Satan.


Question: Have you ever wondered why you read about something in the bible, such as the verse above, and then later on will hear something completely different coming from a preacher or a religious television personality on the same subject? And have you ever wondered why is it so many people have made reading or understanding the bible more difficult than it really is? The reason may be easier to understand than you think once you begin to understand about spirits and how they work, especially about the spirit of the Antichrist, and when to recognize its presence.


The Antichrist is one of the most miss taught bible subjects in the world today. Unfortunately, as more and more people are trying to learn about the Antichrist, and most likely learning from those who don't seem to understand this subject to begin with, the truth keeps getting buried deeper and deeper. Virtually, everything that has been said about it isn't even close to what the bible actually says. For example, the term Antichrist is only found four times in the New Testament and not found at all in the Old Testament, or even referred to. Also, each time it is mentioned, as in the verse above, it's explained as being a spirit and not a human being or a person.

People are typically conformist, and in many instances they will conform to what is taught, even if it is wrong. Then later, when they find out what they believe may be wrong, they have a hard time changing their position. The problem then becomes one of choice: do they continue to believe the wrong message just to conform with others, or will they speak out and stand up against it? Obvously the few haven't spoke up or else there would be more public knowledge about the Antichrist spirit.

That is the purpose of this website: to reveal the real Antichrist, and show how it is working daily in the world deceiving people. Once you learn about it, you too should be able to see it and how it is working, even in the Christian community.

Again, to start, there is absolutely nothing in the bible that suggests or implies the Antichrist is a man or even a human being. It strictly says and implies it is a spirit. So, why would anyone ever teach otherwise? The answer is simple, they have been mislead by others who at one point in time was mislead by the wrong spirit, or are being mislead by the spirit of the Antichrist itself. They aren't listening to the Holy Spirit.

    But the Comforter, [even] the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said unto you. John 14:26


    But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall bear witness of me: John 15:26

The Holy Spirit is what teaches you about God, Jesus, Satan, Prophecy, the Apostles, and all of the bible subjects necessary for you to understand what it is you are looking for. Any other teaching is not from the Holy Spirit, but rather comes from mankinds lack of understanding, Satan, or the spirit of the Antichrist. In any instance, you cannot actually feel what spirit is teaching you. For instance, the bible says you learn that Jesus is the Son of God by the Holy Spirit, and yet there are no physical or emotional "feelings" that come along with hearing this.

    He [Jesus] saith unto them, But who say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jonah: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father who is in heaven. Mat 16:17


    God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth. John 4:24

Between the two of these spirits, the "spirit of truth" [Holy Spirit], and the spirit of God himself, a person learns what is considered "Truth." Truth does not mean you become all knowing, but rather it means you will learn what is right or wrong about what you have heard about Jesus, God, Satan, Prophesies, and so forth. Also, understand this: while God revealed to Peter and all the others who Jesus was, it was not done by the Holy Spirit, but rather it was God himself providing the information through his spirit. The actual Holy Spirit did not come to the apostles or followers until much later after Christ had risen from his grave.

    But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall bear witness of me: John 15:26

And so it is that the Holy Spirit was sent and came along after God had revealed Jesus through his spirit to the apostles and all of those who accepted Jesus at the time. The Holy Spirit is what continues to reveal Christ and the terms of salvation today, but does so with the absense of Christ himself. Thus, Jesus left behind a spirit that works in his absense called the Holy Spirit.

What has happened, is there is another spirit among us that also reveals scripture and talks about Christ and how to obtain salvation. Only this spirit is about a false Jesus, a false God, false prophesies, and it hides the work of Satan. It goes around daily deceiving as many people as it can about scriptures and Gods plan of salvation. It is called the Spirit of the Antichrist.

THE REAL ANTICHRIST IS DESCRIBED BY THE BIBLE:

  • 1 John 2:8 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.

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

  • 1 John 4:3 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, "

  • 2 John 1:7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

Most people don't understand what a spirit is, or even have a clue how to identify the presence of one. Knowing this, John gave us a description of the Antichrist so that future generations could see it working and not follow it or those who are following it.

From what can be seen since John wrote this down for us, we can see how this spirit takes on the role of the Holy Spirit and teaches about the bible and the plan of salvation, but leads to a different God the bible doesn't claim. As John points out, they (the people) rose out of the christian faith, but they serve the needs of Satan.

No one knows for sure or even understands the Holy Spirit, nor can they feel its presence when it's around. However, the same can be said about the Spirit of Antichrist. Which means you have to listen to what is being said and done in order to determine the difference.

Hearing creates a belief, these beliefs then get processed in someone's mind and are spread to others. This is done by conversation, by way of television, talk radio, seminars, bible study groups, Sunday sermons, books, and popular movies. Where nowadays, movies or videos seem to be a better way to reach people and have more impact. Video's can be viewed at a persons leisure while sitting at home where people tell their point of view and what they believe, hoping others will learn what they believe, whether it is true or not.

At least there are people who are aware there may someday be a worldwide event that could effect the lives of millions of people, and that in itself is good because they're bringing an awareness that things may be different someday and where we may all be faced with a great danger, particularly concerning the infamous 666, mark of the beast. But, on the other hand, false teaching is still false teaching regardless of the source it should be corrected whenever possible so others are not deceived.

When put in simple terms, the Antichrist spirit is a replacement for the real Christ and Holy Spirit. It goes around teaching false and misleading things about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and about bible prophecy. It doesn't appear to be any more powerful than exchanging truthful knowledge with false knowledge. There is no scripture indicating it has power over a person or can cause physical harm. It is simply a false teaching spirit.

BASIC HISTORY:

This spirit originated 2000 years ago after Jesus left, and at a time when the apostles weres till around.

    And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. ... They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 1 John 4:3 & 4:5

Like John said, this spirit came into the world during his life time and it remains today just like the Holy Spirit. The purpose of this Antichrist Spirit, is deception. The long term goal is not written in the bible, but like the rest of Satan's deceptive activity, it has to do with the reign of Satan and making sure people do not find salvation.

The result: If you believe in the wrong God, you'll believe in the wrong Jesus, thus you loose salvation.

It's important to take notice to what John is saying about the world and that "they" are of the world. What this means, is the world has a voice in how things are done, what is said, and who says it without getting into trouble. In other words, the world is controlled by spirits that are not of God and these spirits keep things in line to promote their leader, Satan.

Just like in the Garden of Eden, where Satan wanted Adam and Eve to die, he also wants normal everyday people to die and not receive salvation, especially those who are not his.

The bible says:

    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, Ho 4:6


    So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Ro 10:17

In giving thought to a purpose, the Antichrist spirit would prevent people from obtaining salvation simply by misleading them. This can be done by showing them a wrong thought process of faith in God or Christ, or by showing the powers of a faith not even related to salvation through Christ, where the intent is to prevent a person from obtaining knowledge which will lead to salvation.

But even with the works of these two, the Antichrist and Satan, comes the fact that not everyone is chosen to receive or understand Christ at this time anyway. Yes, that's what I said, some people are not chosen to receive salvation at this time. That means many people will be not able to figure this out or learn about it because Jesus does not expose himself to everyone as it is, and so the door to other "ideas" is left open for those who have no bible understanding or knowledge of Christ or being led by the wrong spirits. Thus expanding the confusion even more.

All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. Mat 11:27

Christ did not reveal himself to everyone back then, and does not reveal himself to everyone today. It sad, but it's true, and so it seems God is also preventing salvation for them at this time. Therefore, that too makes it easy for many false things to be taught. The justification for God doing this is based on teaching good things to bad people in the eyes of God is not right.

    Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces. Mat 7:6


    Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it. Mat 13:45

God is not going to share his kingdom will unfit people. Therefore, the door to salvation is not shown to them either. It seems God's kingdom was torn apart in heaven long before the earth was made, where Satan being a son of God, lived in heaven and caused as much havoc there as he now does on earth.

    How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! .... For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.' Isa 14:12 in part 14:13-14

Satan then, has fallen from heaven with the hopes of returning someday to be just like God. He wants to be God and to play God. In order for him to do so, he must have a way to convince people on earth that he is God.

    Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. 2 Th 2:3-4

That is where the spirit of the Antichrist comes in at. Through false teachings, people can choose which Jesus and God they believe in and then follow them. With their own decision being made, God can then determine if they are suitable for his kingdom. If they are suitable, he will reveal himself, and Jesus will reveal himself as well and salvation is then obtained.

God does not pick just anyone for his kingdom right now, because he knows salvation will be and on going offer even after the millennium. Each persons time will come as they progress in learning.

    And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. Mat 24:20

This verse is plainly spoken, but has no connection to winter time on earth or the millennium. Simply put, winter is just after the millennium, and the Sabbath is the Day of Judgment that comes after that. Your "flight" is your time of salvation, either now, which you should pray for, or later after the millennium or later on during the Day of Judgment.

That is also where the false Christ or Anti-Christ is going to come around and let itself be known so these people can complete Gods plan and prophesies of failing to hear his words, which means they will eventually bring hardships on those who do.

Adding to the problem is Satan, where he will also come along and take away the truth a person may have just heard, especially if that person's thoughts are not based on a solid foundation of truth.

    And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. Mark 4:14

Spiritual Truth

Now comes a part of seeking to be a Christian that most people will not agree to, or will dismiss because of how they have been taught. There are four spirits at work that prevent mankind from receiving salvation, one of which works both sides of good and evil at the same time.

  1. Holy Spirit. Teaches us about salvation, but denies those not favored by God to receive salvation at this time, Thus, this spirit works both good and what we would consider "evil" at the same time. Where some will receive wisdom, and others will be denied for what ever reason it is they do not fit the requirement of God's plan at this time.
      Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Mat 7:21

  2. God's spirit. God controls everything. Therefore, if he wants a person he will make sure that person is saved. Noah is a good example of God choosing someone. Peter is a good example of Jesus choosing someone because Peter asked Jesus to leave him alone, where Jesus did not but continued to teach him.
    • When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!" Luke 5:8

  3. Satan. Satan will prevent as many people as he can from receiving salvation, and hassle as many who have, including killing them by use of his servants.
    • Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city,

  4. Antichrist. The spirit of the Antichrist has no more power than deception and an ability to trick both believer and non believer. Thus, deception by this spirit will keep some people from hearing what needs to be heard in order to acquire salvation.

With having four spirits working against mankind, it almost seems impossible for people to be saved from death and granted the ability to live forever, but it's not. Seekers need to be earnestly seeking. Those who fit in with the crowd or are at peace with the world may not be the Christian they think they are. Truth being said, it is nearly impossible for us to know who among us is chosen at this time, and who is not.

  • Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; ... Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 1 John 4:1, and 4:15

God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Acts 17:24


Lesson Time

All of us have heard and listened to the Spirit of Antichrist at some point in our lives and have not gave it any thought or concern. We think, because someone is teaching from the bible that they are being lead by the Holy Spirit. This is not always true and most false teachers are not aware of it because they know nothing about the spirit of the Antichrist, or that Satan is also a spirit. So, here are some things to consider if you're truly seeking to learn about the Antichrist and wanting to see how it works.

Lesson 1: The bible clearly tells us what the antichrist is, when it began its work, and where it came from. But no where in the bible does it say the antichrist is a person or a single person who will rise up and rule the world someday.

Lesson 2: The real antichrist is not a man or even described as a man, therefore it never has been and never will be a man. However, because it is a spirit it has the ability to be in more than one person at a time, but this includes women and children as well. In doing so, it creates people of like minds, which bring about a way of thinking those people then agree to and begin to practice as a way of life.

Lesson 3: As John explains, the antichrist began years ago influencing people. That means it's not coming in the future, because it's already here. So why would anyone misread what John said and teach otherwise?

Lesson 4: Don't ad-lib, don't make what is written into something that it isn't. If you're going to learn how to read the bible and understand it, do so by not adding ideas or taking away what is written. Learn to take the bible for what it says.

So, let's see how good you can read and see if what you read is what John really told us.

  • 1 John 2:8 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.

    1 John 2:8 says the antichrist was here when John was around. Well, my math tells me that was around 2000 years ago. Since this is 2013 and John was here when Jesus was here, that puts the antichrist here on earth for almost 2000 years now. If you read it correctly you should also read where he said that there were many of them and not just one single person or spirit. Doesn't that contradict modern teaching? Yes it does.

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

    1 John 2:22 says the obvious about people who choose not to believe in Jesus and shows a person is an antichrist if they deny the father and the son. Are there religions that do this? How about Jews, Muslims, Buddhist, and others like them that don't mention Jesus and his purpose in life? But also, how about this? What about the people who claim that God died on the cross and not Jesus, doesn't that deny God has a son separate of himself? Of course it does. By denying one, the other is denied as well, and so it reveals the presence of the Antichrist spirit.

  • 1 John 4:3 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, "

    1 John 4:3 says those who do not confess that Jesus came in the flesh are not of God and says the antichrist is already in the world. That's easy to see if you consider all the religions that leave Jesus out. Ok then, how is it that a believer can say that Jesus did not come in the flesh? Simple: If you claim that God came down from heaven, you are denying that his son Jesus came down. And that is claiming there is no father and son relationship. If Jesus is denied as being Gods son, then that would be the voice of the antichrist talking, even if it's done in a so called a Christian environment.

  • 2 John 1:7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

    2 John 1:7 says many deceivers, not a few, not just one, but many have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus as coming in the flesh. Sound familiar? Once again we are told there are many Antichrist's out there, so there is no single one coming in the future.

It doesn't matter if you claim you're a Christian or not, because the "spirit of the antichrist" is alive all over the world and in every religion, but especially the Christian religion because that is where Johns says it originated. It was here over two thousand years ago and was made up of far more than one person back then and is far more than one person now. People who were once with the apostles teaching and spreading the word about Jesus started out on their own but under the control of the Antichrist Spirit.

    They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. 1 John 2:19

The Trinity Belief

Among the many false teachings in the Christian religion that make up false beliefs, false representation of the tribulation, false representation of the resurrections, false beliefs about the other sons of God, Satan, Jesus, and so forth, is the belief in the Trinity. Though it seems justified, it is a false teaching, in it that God almighty is not made up of a triune personality, nor does a group of three entities form God almighty. There are several verses in the bible to support a singular God.

    Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, And He who formed you from the womb: "I am the Lord, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself; Isa 44:24


    But if you will not hear these words, I swear by Myself," says the Lord, "that this house shall become a desolation. Jer 22:5


    Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord. Ez 28:23


    I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty." Rev 1:8

Jesus we know, is not the "ALMIGHTY," and that he never claimed to be either. All he claimed was that he was the Son of God and that God [the almighty] was greater than he was. And of course God never claimed he came to earth nor denied that Jesus was his son.

    And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." Mat 3:17


    "do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming,' because I said, 'I am the Son of God'? John 10:36


    You have heard Me say to you, 'I am going away and coming back to you.' If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, 'I am going to the Father,' for My Father is greater than I. John 14:28


    For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel. John 5:20

With this, it's easy to see there is no comment in the bible that shows or states that Jesus is God, or even part of a Triune God-ship.

It took me discovering the spirit of the Antichrist before I could realize why the Trinity belief was wrong, and why so many people refuse to give it up. And so, I need to point this out and how the spirits of deception are at work. Without question, teaching false things about Christ began when he was here and continued afterwards and even still today. It was done by Satan's people back then, and is now continued by people infected with the Spirit of the Antichrist.

False Christian teachers began way back 2000 years ago and continue on today. At one point the religious powers of the day fought over the Trinity belief and a division started between those who believe God is singular, and those who believe he is Triune and so the Nicene Creed was developed. There, the believers stated that Jesus was in fact the Son of God, but not God himself, and that the Holy Spirit was a separate being as well. So the question of there being a holy Trinity or Triune God is nothing new.

The Trinity is commonly taught now days, but has many different views. The two most common are that God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit make up a Triune God or trio, and the other is that God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are one in the same being. Both are false teachings.

The Trinity view can be found a mistake because of incorrect bible translations from the past. One such verse is 1 John 5:7.

For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. 1 John 5:7

Where the original verse states something quite different:

And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is the truth. 1 John 5:7

Ironically, it can be said: just because it's in the bible, doesn't mean it should be or is even correct. This means that sometimes you really have to search find answers.

Another set of scriptures used to convey the message that Jesus is God or God is Jesus, is the first set in the book of John.

  1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [1:1]
  2. He was in the beginning with God. [1:2]
  3. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. [1:3] John 1:1 - 3

Because these verses can often be misread or imply that the word and God are the same being, thus justifying saying Jesus is God to the extremist, let me explain what is being said.

John had an insight in explaining things the other apostles did not have. John knew God was all there was in the beginning, therefore, "in the beginning was the word and the word was with God" is a true statement. What John then says is the "and the word was God." This is a double statement where John is conveying two terms, the word was with God, but at the same time on another line of process the word was God, but not the term of "also" God. Two statements, with reference to two things, pointing back to one God almighty, thus the need for the word "and."

"He" would be in reference to Jesus because this is who John is writing about. We know and learn that Jesus was with God in the beginning from other verses as well.

Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy? Job 38:4 - 7

Here we see that God alone created the heavens and the earth, not Jesus, Satan, or the other sons of God. And yet, we can also determine that they were with God in the beginning as well as Jesus, yet John doesn't mention them. Therefore, because God has many sons, and because they too were with him in the beginning, it makes John 1:1 an incomplete statement if you consider all of this, but factual since John was only talking about God and Jesus.

Jesus was born the word when he was in heaven, but became the word on earth when God decided to make a plan of salvation for mankind when saving Noah and his family.

Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM." John 8:58

She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. Rev 12:5

So Jesus became the word after the plan of salvation, even though he was present with God in the beginning of creating the earth. Thus, the "word," or promise of God became flesh and dwelt among us.

    And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

Just because John has an elaborate way of explaining things, doesn't make Jesus God or God Jesus. This mistake and miss taught subject is another sign of the spirit of the Antichrist and shows its presence. The Trinity belief is quashed by the mere facts alone, and thus having Satan leading the way into deception, his Trinity or Triune God is nothing more than an illusion many have chosen to believe is true.



Sons of God

Another huge miss taught subject are the son's of God that we know nothing about, or very little except that they are mentioned. Sadly, another verse has come under fire as well in recent times, and that is John 3:16.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16

What has happened is the word "begotten" has been removed from some bibles where it now reads "his only son," which is not true. God has many sons besides Jesus and the verses cannot be translated into any other word except "sons."

Now it came to pass on the day when the sons of God came to present themselves before Jehovah, that Satan also came among them. Job 1:16 and Job 2:1

When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy? Job 38:7

Here the bible tells us that God has many sons besides Jesus. Unfortunately, people are ignoring that fact as much as they are ignoring Jesus is his son. Think about it, even the simple statement by those who preach that Jesus is God are denying God has a son. Of which, Jesus never claimed to be God or equal to him. Only mankind makes that claim through a false spirit which is simply the spirit of the Antichrist.


Recognizing the Spirit of the Antichrist

Once again, look close at what's being said and who is saying it, because the answer to who or what the Antichrist is, is closer than you think, and in case you didn't see it, the answer is this: the Antichrist has risen out of the original Christian community and is solely related to teaching false things about Jesus. Otherwise, John would not have mentioned this:

They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. 1 John 2:19

The questions and answers then become something a person has to reason out for themselves. If there were many "Antichrists" back then, then are there many "Antichrists" around us today? The answer of course is going to be yes. What you have to do next is try to figure out what spirit is leading the person or group of people you are listening to.

So, what makes these people any different than a true follower, or can you actually tell the difference? The answer is no, these people are very convincing that they are of God and yet they can't seem to teach correctly.

You see, what happens is this, when a believer hears the words of God from the bible spoken in public or private settings, they know the words are true, but most fail to grasp that the Antichrist is doing exactly what Satan did, and that is using true words to create deceptive ideas and lies before those who are ignorant and just seeking a simple answer.

However, aside from the obvious, there are several other things or features, that can let you know the difference, but most of them can be reduced down to three things in general.

  • They wouldn't be a person who believes that Jesus is the savior. (the obvious)
  • They could be a person who doesn't believe that Jesus is the son of God, even if they did profess Jesus as savior. (not so obvious)
  • They might teach gladly from the bible, but actually be teaching through false or mixed up scriptures, or even say things that are not written or documented but will still appear to be a holy person. (hard to recognize)

Of course, we all know all these are things Jesus warned us about, but most may have never considered their pastor or a television personality who is teaching about Jesus as being influenced by the wrong spirit.

And He said: "Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am He,' and, 'The time has drawn near.' Therefore do not go after them. Luke 21:8

They answered and said to him, "You were completely born in sins, and are you teaching us?" And they cast him out. John 9:34

But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments. They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, 'Rabbi, Rabbi.' Mat 23:5-7

Another thing that gives away the spirit of the Antichrist includes the modern "Speaking in Tongues" version people profess. Ask any of these people if they believe Jesus is the son of God, and then ask them if they believe that he is also God or part of a Triune God and you'll have your answer.

To further understand spirits, know this: Both Satan and the Antichrist are spirits. For people who do not seek the truth, these spirits can easily occupy them and will often make some of them seem "God-Like," or "God-Fearing" to people. For example, the Catholic Pope's are highly praised by millions, but to me they are all far from any truth and not worth listening to because of all the religious rhetoric. I see them as being very deceitful and falsely demanding to be recognized as holy.

Many other religions are no different when you take a close look at what they really teach and begin to see what spirit is leading them. A person could go on and on with the things Jesus and the apostles said, but all they were trying to tell us is that there will be a different spirit teaching things that are not true and wanting us to do things and honor things that have no value. Jesus said this about the Holy Spirit.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. John 14:26

If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him! Luke 11:13

All the Antichrist does is teach false things and uses the bible and scriptures about Jesus to take his place. Since most people don't read their bible, few would ever suspect an anti-Christ spirit is leading them. On the other hand, many people have recognized a sense of false-being when they attended a church or meeting and eventually ceased going. This is their gut instinct telling them something is wrong, but they just can't figure it out.

It's very difficult to understand how spirits work. Take the Holy Spirit for example, the bible tell us the Holy Spirit is our teacher, and yet we feel nothing when we are learning about the bible. If the Holy Spirit says Jesus is the Son of God, and we feel nothing, then how do you expect to feel the spirit of the Antichrist when it is talking? Obviously you can't.

So what you have to do is determine what you have been taught and compare it to what the bible says. In theory, since evil spirits tend to lie, it would be useless to ask a person what spirit they have leading them, so you need some other way to make a determination. Like John says, apparently that sole determination seems to rest on whether the teaching spirit confesses that Jesus is the Son of God and that he came to earth and became a flesh and bone human being. It's that simple.

So He called them to Himself and said to them in parables: "How can Satan cast out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. Mark 3:23-24

So, when it comes to the antichrist, it's up to you to make that determination. Satan will not cast it out nor expose it for what it is. He uses it to control the minds of people and what they believe. For him to cast it out would be to destroy his own plans. But keep in mind, although Satan is "anti-Christ," he himself is not the spirit of the Antichrist. He is the Man of Sin, an unfruitful son of God who will someday claim that he is God when the Abomination of Desolation is built.


Satan, and his Goal

The Question: How would Satan proclaim to be the God of all Gods and above all else if he has no followers? He must create followers before he can do this.

Satan has a goal. His goal is to rule the earth. Eventually, he will be recognized by the people and it is then he will proclaim to be God. This next scripture is where the teaching of a "Man" or "Person" who will take over and be the Antichrist comes from, as it specifically mentions "person."

    And in his place shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give the honor of royalty; but he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue. Dan 11:21

The entering peaceably is a key factor for the Spirit of the Antichrist, because that is exactly what it has done. It has entered with peaceful intentions, portraying a peaceful God and peaceful Jesus for the world to follow. However, this King that enters does not act alone in the beginning, but rather with another King, the King of the south. Notice the prophecy of Daniel also fits the description found in the Book of Revelation of the lamb with two horns.

    Both these kings' hearts shall be bent on evil, and they shall speak lies at the same table; but it shall not prosper, for the end will still be at the appointed time. Dan 11:27


    Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. Rev 13:11

There's a time when scripture should be taken literally or figurative. When looking up the translation of a word or phrase, keep in mind that some have come to be because no real translation is available. The word "beast" in Revelation has several meanings, mostly leaning towards an animal. Yet, we know the beast is not an animal, but a symbolic figure. And so, it becomes a metaphor. Where the word "person" in the scripture from Daniel has no meaning at all in regards to a physical person. This makes understanding the bible harder if you don't know these things.

The word for person, Bazah (baw-zaw'), means despise, contemptible, worthless, and other meanings like such. In other words, a vile or contemptible thing will enter and take over, but not necessarily a person. The spirit of the Antichrist is such a vile and contemptible thing, and it has taken over most of the worlds Christian churches and those who follow such religious practices. In other words, Daniel 11:21 should read:

    And in his place shall arise something vile and despicable, to whom they will not give the honor of royalty; but it shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue. Dan 11:21 modified

Most religions do just that, come in attempting to make peace, especially the Christian religion. So, falsely taught; the Antichrist will NOT rise up someday as a man or person who wants to rule the world or claim to be God, because according to the Bible, it is already here teaching false things and giving false hope. It is setting a path for people to follow who seek information about God and Jesus, where they may hear from it before hearing from the Holy Spirit.

    the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 1 Cor 1:21

While the messenger may be speaking and giving a false representation of God and Jesus at the time, the oddity and twist to hearing the false and misleading information is that many people actually find salvation through it simply because the scripture itself is real and based on real events.

None the less, people who do not know that Jesus is the Son of God are not awake as of yet. For those who know without a doubt Jesus is the Son of God, and not God almighty, nor God living in the flesh body, their eyes are opened and Jesus has allowed them to see him and to see the father separately. That is primarily how you tell the difference, even though believers will often be misled and may say something that is not quite right.

Satan has been teaching wrong things since the Garden of Eden, but, he is not the Antichrist, he is the Son of Perdition, otherwise called the Man of Sin. The spirit of the false Prophet is the only thing that closely fits the Spirit of the Antichrist, where those two may be the same.

And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. Rev 16:13

All of these are spirits, where only Satan will survive after the millennium. That means the Spirit of the Antichrist will no longer be here after Jesus returns and will be in the lake of fire and that is what rules out Satan as the Antichrist. The Antichrist isn't that hard to see, just look around at what people teach and say and then compare it to what the bible says and what John said to look for.


Attributes of the False Jesus and False God

  1. It is taught that Jesus is God, however, Jesus is not God, never has been, never will be, and never claimed to be. It is man that call's Jesus God.
  2. It is taught Jesus is Gods only son, however, Jesus is not Gods "only" son, but is his only begotten [born of a flesh woman] son. God has other sons [including Satan], we just don't know how many.
  3. It is taught Jesus will grant salvation to anyone who asks, however, Jesus does not give salvation to "everyone" who asks, nor has he ever planned to. But most certainly, would prefer to.
  4. It is taught "with God all things are possible," however, God cannot do everything. Not ALL things are possible, even for God. In this physical world he created, can God place the point of a line on every point there is in a circle or globe at the same exact time? No. Can God go back and change the past? No. Can God give the same child two parental fathers? No. Can God grant several people playing the lottery to be only one with the winning ticket at the same time from the same drawing? No. And the list can go on and on.
  5. It is taught Jesus and God are the same being, however, God was not baptized in the Jordan River. God spoke to his son and said he was well pleased, he did not say he well pleased in himself.
  6. It is taught the GOD died on the cross, however, God did not die on the cross, Jesus, his son, did.
  7. If God died on the cross, then talked to himself while on the cross, however, God did not look up to heaven and talk to himself when it was said: "into Your hands I commit My spirit," Luke 23:46, but his son Jesus did.
  8. It is taught there are three that make up God or the powers of God, however, God never said there were other powers that help him operate. He always claimed there were no others besides him.
  9. It is taught God or Jesus, can grant whatever you pray or ask for in his name, however, can we bring back the dead? No. Can we turn stone into bread? No. Can a divorced couple receive full custody of the same child to raise? No. And the list goes on and on.
  10. Most Important, the false Jesus is taught as having no human or physical body, but having a spiritual body or living now as a spirit. The truth is Jesus is alive now in the same body he had while here on earth and will return the same way he left. Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have. Luke 24:39 This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven. Acts 1:11

This is just a few attributes of the false Jesus and God that is being portrayed to the public. No one knows for sure why people choose to lie about such a serious issue, but they do. Perhaps they feel they will offend God if they succomb to giving up believing in him, or more correctly, the him they think is there. As simple as it is, this explains the Real Antichrist, and how it works.


Keep in mind; religion and beliefs are typically a self taught learned behavior that you gather from those around you and those you CHOOSE to follow or believe. And so, the bottom line is this, if the SPIRIT in your church or where you learn or study is not of God, then it must be of Satan or the Antichrist. If they don't know who Jesus is, then how do they know what is proper to teach you in other things?

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 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. 1 John 4:1-3
