I john 4: 1-3:  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.”

            Is the Antichrist alive on planet Earth right now?  I can’t answer that. It’s very probable that he is, considering how the world is totally reeling from the upheaval taking place in every nation. I also believe the Rapture could happen at any moment, so that would lead me to believe he is alive on Earth right now. One thing for certain, his spirit is alive and well.

            Wickedness is abounding.  Babies are being aborted in a manner that blows the mind.  This will be one of the major things that brings judgment on our nation, our blatant disregard for human life. The antichrist spirit has always tried to kill the innocent. If you haven’t already read about the marvelous midwives named Shiphrah and Puah, who went against direct orders of the new king of Egypt, to kill all male children, then you can find that in Exodus Chapter One.  These were brave women who stood against the spirit of antichrist.

            It’s the spirit of antichrist which causes looting and burning in our streets.  It’s the cause behind the war on gender, marriage between one man and one woman, the right to speak about your God, or your political affiliation, or your opinion on anything that doesn’t agree with the Cancel Culture.  They tear down statues, rename schools, curse the nation that is feeding them, need I go on?  This is the spirit of antichrist.  The fact that it has so escalated tells me the lawless one is close to appearing openly on the scene.

            People who do not know Christ, who do not read the Bible, who do not attend church are being deceived left and right and there is no reasoning with them, they won’t even listen.

Zechariah 7: 11: “But they refused to pay attention, stubbornly they turned their backs and covered their ears.” NIV

            So if you’ve been wondering what is going on, it’s the spirit of antichrist at work.  He is here to destroy our nation, our families and life as we know it.  His goal?  That we should eventually bow down to him and worship him instead of the true God.  Our mandate is to rise up as a body and stand against the tide that is coming against all we love and care about.  We need to be informed, no, not just about their actions, but about God’s desires for His people and we need to proclaim it boldly.

            The people in that verse of Zechariah hardened their hearts, and because of that, the last portion of the next verse says: Thus, great wrath came down from the Lord of hosts.

            We will soon see the bitter results of our lax, cushy Christianity. Turn to Christ today.  Get in a church that teaches the whole counsel of God, even when it steps on your toes. There is an old saying in the church realm, “Get right or get left!”  Think about it.  Until next time!
