SORT BY Relevancy
First you must know the true Jesus Christ as revealed by the Holy Spirit through the Bible. Then knowing the anti-Christ strengthens your knowledge and understanding of the deceptions utilized to lead you away from Christ and therefore salvation.
Knowing who Antichrist is reveals our desperate need for a Savior, a Deliverer, a Redeemer who must, not only rescue us from the tyranny of our modern day pharaoh, but reveal to us his deceptive cloak of Christianity. Without freeing us from his false lamb-like religion, we are bound to love his doctrines, love his image, and worship after his provisions. This is why the spirit of antichrist has always been among us, since the beginning. He first tempts us to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, by twisting the simplicity of God's Word into something more. "Surely God did not say." In other words, "surely God has allowed it by now" might be the phrase he uses today, but nevertheless, he uses our disbelief to lure us. God is not unjust. According to our desire and free will, we would choose that deceptive fruit every time because our hearts want it. Without God's grace and mercy to save us, we desire to seek after secret mysteries, special experiences(spiritual formation, experiential, Christianity) with God under the cloak of religion, but through the lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. Rather, we are commanded to eat from the Tree of Life, which is walking by faith according to God's will. Nothing has changed. The Tree of Life, which is faith in Christ, remains the only way to the Father today.
