The Anti-Christ Christian

Italian Trulli

Has the words "Jesus" recently left Your mouth in front of people? Have You glorified Jesus in public?

How You answer these questions will give You the true state of affairs within Your heart as a Christian. Yes...this is most difficult to write...but it needs to be said. You see many Christians are walking in league with the anti-Christ spirit and not even know it!

1st John 4:2-3,15 - By this you know the Spirit of God: †Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3and 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.

1st John 2:22-23 - Who is a liar but he who denies that †Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23†Whoever denies the Son does not have the †Father either; †he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

This kind of subliminal or subconscious denial is dangerous because Were not aware of it. Because of the cares of this world...the work, the sporting events, the vacations...It flies under the radar. It's hard to recognize, but it could look something like this:

  • Your at a party, some people ridicule Christians, then they ask You what do You think? You agree with them as well, while You are convicted deep down for agreeing with them.
  • Your at work in the break room and some of Your work mates have invited You to lunch hour bible study. But Your boss is there so You turn them down.
  • Your with Your family. One of them is a worldly backsliding Christian who comes to You for advice and is in need of Godly Counsel, but You know how Your lukewarm family will react. So You counsel with worldly advice and without Jesus in mind.

To Deny is to be Denied

The above examples might be hard to bear and easy to deny. But denial is the key concept here. Matthew 10:32 32†“Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, †him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33†“But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.

It doesnt get any clearer than that...To deny Jesus is a dangerous thing. Even if You dont believe or have Low Faith, Why take that chance? Enternity is is a long time.

Those who consider themselves Christian but do not walk in agreement and boldness in the Lord is technically in disagreement with Him (See below:). Luke 11:23 23†“He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters.

The Bigger Picture

Denial is a big step towards compromising Faith. This compromise could lead to deadly justification:

  • The Recruiter: Sir, You need to take this mark on Your right hand or forehead if you want to be eligible for this position.

    Your conscience: "I know I heard in Church a long time ago about this mark...but...I don't believe a God of love would send me to Hell...besides i want that JOB!!!"

    You: Ok I'll take it.
  • "I heard Judaism is the same as Christianity. Ok, I'll convert to that, I just want to be with My Wife. ...anyways...There are many paths to God."

Friend, much of why We openly or subconsciously deny Him in front of People, is because of un-beleif. The level of Faith is so low, that not much thought is given to Jesus' presence in Our lives. Its a shame really, if You think about it. On the day of Judgement, Your going to ask for entry into the Kingdom of Heaven in New Jerusalem? ...But You didnt even think about Him, You did'nt talk to Him or take Him seriously on Your time on Earth? Why would He grant Your request when He doesnt even know You exist?

Consider this, would You go to Your neighbor or some stranger and ask Him or Her to give You their House or Car? What do You think their reaction will be? It would be the same as the Almighty God! Who are You? I don't even know You. Get away from me before I call the Police ...

The Scariest Passage in the Bible

Friend, denial of Our Lord publicly is a facet of the spirit of anti-christ. It is growing larger and larger in modern times...and since We are now in the time of the long awaited anti-Christ...his spirit is rising to a fever pitch...and it will be even more difficult to for those who are lukewarm in their faith to hang on. In the upcoming great-reset, We will all be tested on how much of a Christian We truly are. I leave You now with the scariest bible passage that changed My life and forever impacted the way I thought about my Christian journey:

Matthew 7:21-23 21“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. 22“Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we †not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23“And †then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; †depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
