See what you've done Kelly!!! naughty girl..........
The book of Revelation never says anything about a person or "being" that is "THE Antichrist".It is a fictionalized doctrine of religious men
extrapolated from the letters of John the apostle.
"antichrist is written of only 4 times in the scriptures all by John in his letters.
1John 2:18"Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we
know that it is the last hour."
1John 2:22Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son
1John 4:3And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, of which you
have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
II John 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
First in Greek this prefix means "in place of " which is in-tune with what John is saying.Christ (christos in Greek) means anointing from the Hebrew
mashiach/messiah.Christ is not Yahoshuas last name....it is a title...THE christ THE anointed one...it means to smear on oil..what the Hebrews (and
pagans) did to denote power given by "their" God.
Hence antichrist=in place of ...the power of God..
It has an odd phrasing to but it definitely doesn't mean "against" the Christ ....Yahoshua.It is one word.John saw what happened when religion twists
the truth into a lie.He sat at the feet of the master.He witnessed it all up close through experience.It was the beginning of the falsity of religion
being burnt out of him.None of the apostles tried to start a new religion called "Christianity"(or any religion) and most assuredly Yahoshua
However John was describing the roots of Christianity ..anti christ..in place of christ.Yahoshua said it would happen ....and it did when he said....
"MANY will come in MY name SAYING they are "christ" and "deceive" many.
This is what John also said about the deceivers.This should be obvious to all however it's still hidden to the many are called...and many others.They
have deceived many (including themselves). They can't see that Yahoshua himself has spoke of them many times yet they can't hear.He said
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many
wonderful works? and then will I proclaim to them, I never knew you...
The fact is "THE Antichrist" is not in the scripture neither is the GREAT Tribulation" nor the rapture nor all of the predictions of historical
events past, present or future from the book of Revelation and about a million other doctrines of men that are religion.
However ...antichrist is real...very real.They are alive and thriving completely oblivious to who they are.They will deny it as vehemently as the
pharisees , Sadducee and scribes.They believe THEY are chosen yet they aren't..they are the many not the few. I don't judge them.They can't help it
.All they do they do in complete ignorance of the Truth...Yahoshua(Gods salvation) will "come again"to them and God will deliver them from the bondage
of their religion...but not in this age(world/realm) nor the one to come.
