How Do We Recognize an Antichrist?
People have come up with all different figures that they believe will be the Antichrist. There is only one problem, there are more than one Antichrist.
The word “Antichrist” is only mentioned in the Bible five times, one of those times it is pluralized. What we need to look out for are those that deny Jesus Christ and those that speak strange doctrines.
So how do you know when someone is preaching untruth? There is only one way to recognize whether or not someone is preaching or teaching truth and that is by seeking for the truth yourself in Jesus Christ.
Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.” Jesus will teach anyone truth if they would seek it through Him. Also, as one grows in faith and purifies themselves, they will receive the gift of discernment.
Are You Being Deceived?
There will be no excuses for those that stand before God and can’t explain why they don’t know truth. The big question that people have to ask themselves is, “Am I being deceived?”
Many do not know because they rely on others to teach them truth. They believe every word that is told to them. Ask yourself this, “How do I know if the Bible is true?” Have you ever thought about it?
The only way to know if what’s in the Bible is true, is to find out for yourself by proving it, by working the scriptures and proving God’s promises to be true. This is what God wants you to do. He doesn’t want you to trust in man, He wants you to trust in Him, His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
The Main Anti-Christ
There is even a bigger deceiver coming and many, many people are going to be caught up and taken away by him before Jesus Christ returns. He will be the ultimate Antichrist. Are you going to know him? Do you know if there are any Antichrists amongst you now?
Here are the scriptures where the word “Antichrist” appears:
1John 2:18-23, Children, these are the last days; you were told that an Antichrist must come, and now several antichrists have already appeared; we know from this that these are the last days.
Those rivals of Christ came out of our own number, but they had never really belonged; if they had belonged, they would have stayed with us; but they left us, to prove that not one of them ever belonged to us.
But you have been anointed by the Holy One, and have all received the knowledge. It is not that you do not know the truth that I am writing to you but rather because you know it already and know that no lie can come from the truth.
The man that denies that Jesus is the Christ, he is the liar, he is Antichrist; and he is denying the Father as well as the Son, because no one who has the Father can deny the Son, and to acknowledge the Son is to have the Father as well.
1John 4:2,3 – You can tell the spirits that come from God by this: every spirit which acknowledges that Jesus the Christ has come in the flesh is from God; but any spirit which will not say this of Jesus is not from God, but is the spirit of Antichrist whose coming you were warned about.
2John 7, There are many deceivers about in the world, refusing to admit that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. They are the Deceiver; they are the Antichrist.
