The Bible warns us an antichrist world system will arise before the Lord Jesus Christ returns to the earth, which will require everyone in order to be able to buy or sell to take the mark of the beast on their forehead or their hand. That being said, have you ever thought about what the doctrine of antichrist will be? Have you ever wondered if there is any indication from the Bible for us as to what the doctrine will be taught that makes so many who never came to a love for the truth believe the antichrist is God? What does the Bible say is to be the doctrine of this religious system? Amazingly John gives us some very clear insight into exactly what the antichrist’s doctrine will be. One that Paul says in 2Thes.2:10-12 will be the “strong delusion” that comes on all those who never came to love the truth.
It is amazing because what John taught in his day that we may read in 1John4:1-3, this doctrine of antichrist was then, and what John says it will be when antichrist comes, is the doctrine taught in most religions that call themselves Christian today. He wrote, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”
So John told us before what this doctrine of antichrist was and will be. He tells us here that the antichrist doctrine was then, and that it will be when he comes, that Jesus did not come in the same flesh all men have. So John explained beforehand so that we would know that this teaching will be of great significance in the doctrine taught by antichrist during the great tribulation. This same message is a significant part of the doctrines that all the cults teach today during the time of the end just as Paul and John said it would be. That Jesus could not have come in the same flesh all men have. So the great falling away Paul spoke of in 2Thes.2:3 is happening as we speak.
It is happening because they have come to teach this spirit of antichrist doctrine using various reasoning while ignoring John’s warning for it’s being of the antichrist spirit that was already in the world and is to come. Some reasoning falsely that it is because the flesh is evil and a holy God could never inhabit evil flesh. Which was the reasoning of those in John’s day who called themselves the Docetists. A sect of antichrist teaching known as Gnosticism that interpreted everything through the lens of spiritual vs material by saying that the material world is evil and the spiritual is good. Making that knowledge that which connects mankind to “the divine”.
Sadly it is this antichrist thinking that others have drawn from that gave them their wrong interpretation of the Bible who say He could not have the same flesh all men have because all men have a sin nature they inherited from Adam. This is the same logic used by Gnostics who say men are evil by nature because they are part of the material existence. This belief in the spirit of antichrist doctrine has caused them to misunderstand Paul’s gospel to mean that if Jesus came in the same flesh all men have, as Heb.2:14 plainly says He did, then He would have had an evil sin nature too. Even adding to the scriptures by saying that this is why Jesus had to be born of a virgin. Because otherwise He would have the sin nature that all children receive by inheritance from their earthly fathers. When the scripture plainly says His coming by the virgin birth was to be a sign to Israel in Isaiah7:14.
The result of their acceptance of this antichrist doctrine is that all these cults have in common the doctrine of antichrist who is to come. Doctrine that Paul said is the strong delusion that comes upon those who do not love the truth during the great tribulation. The very doctrine John said the spirit of antichrist that was already in the world, and that they had heard was to come, was already teaching in his day. Cults like Gnostics of John’s day which would later be adopted by Roman Catholics, protestants, mormons, and jw’s who all have believed this doctrine of antichrist. They do so because they have all been taught and have believed the teachings of sin nature and original sin that come from the same source from which their mother Roman Catholicism derives her’s.
Which is the Gnosticism of Augustine that promotes the unBiblical notion that the flesh is evil. Because his interpretation of the Bible read his Gnostic beliefs right into it. So he deduced that Adam was good when God made him because he was spiritual when God made him. And that after he ate the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil he died spiritually having his spiritual glory taken from him. This left him material and therefore evil as all Gnostics believe the material world is. From this the sin nature doctrine, or what Augustine referred to as “necessity”, was invented. Gnosticism became orthodoxy for the Roman Catholic religion. And Martin Luther and John Calvin and others made it so for protestants as well.
But, Paul taught that Adam was not spiritual when God made him. But, instead was a living soul, natural, of the earth earthy, flesh and blood only. And that all men are born just as Adam was when he was made. So that there is no difference between what Adam was when God made him and what he was after he ate the fruit. And any teaching that says there was a difference John says is of the spirit of antichrist.
So please, if you have ever believed or do believe now in the sin nature and original sin doctrines that are so prevalent in religion today, know that this is the doctrine of antichrist that will damn many to hell during the great tribulation. So you must turn from it to know and believe in the true and living God so you can be delivered from death to life. So that you will not be deceived by that spirit of antichrist that John and Paul so fervently fought against. Saying “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” So that what Paul said happens during the great tribulation will not happen to you as it will to those who believe the teachings of antichrist saying, “because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
Don’t be in that number. Don’t be part of the great falling away that we see happening and has been happening since the days of the apostles because of the deception of the doctrines of the antichrist spirit that also inhabits the antichrist who is to come. Come to Jesus the true God who came in the same flesh all men have so that He could join with mankind in our death. So that by His resurrection He could conquer death for all who will trust in, cling to, and rely solely upon Him.
And whether you are one that has been deceived by the doctrines of antichrist and are seeing for the first time that you have been lied to, or are one that has never come to believe in Jesus at all, if you are reading this God is calling you. He loves you and wants you to know Him. Because knowing Him is this eternal life that provides you with the spirit that makes you God’s child. John17:3. Because while all men are created by God, not all men are born of His Spirit so that they are children of God. It is only those who have come to know Him that is spiritual because knowing Him is to be born of His Spirit. So if you do not know Him, but have now believed that He is Lord and that He has raised from the dead to conquer death for you, then please take the time right now to talk to Him and confess to Jesus that He is Lord of your life. And believe that He has raised from the dead to conquer death for you. If you do believe in Him then tell Him something like this and you will have eternal life:
Dear Jesus, I believe you. Thank you for joining with me in death so that by conquering death by your resurrection I could join with you in eternal life. Thank you that you raised from the dead so that I could raise from the dead too by trusting in, clinging to, and relying solely on you. Thank you for giving me a new spirit now Lord so that I can live with you in your kingdom forever. In Jesus’ name, amen.
By praying a prayer similar to this one and really meaning it from your heart you have been saved from death to life. From sin to righteousness. And from wrath to peace with God. And now as you begin reading the Bible and believing what it plainly says it will begin to change the way you think and believe. Because when you trust in Jesus you leave the old life behind where you were only able to relate to and trust in what has been made. And now will be equipped for God’s kingdom because you are no longer only natural flesh and blood, but are a new creature made a spiritual being ready to inherit God’s spiritual kingdom. It is because of Jesus’ resurrection that He is the only WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. Because only Jesus has broken through the wall of death that the flesh and blood natural body can never get through. And only by the new birth are we made ready to receive the spiritual body that can go through the wall of death as Jesus’ did first so we could follow Him in the way He has prepared for us.
God Bless you in your new life in Christ.
