For There Shall Arise False Christs
As it is written,
“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
Throughout history there have been false Christs.
In other words, there have been people that have claimed love mankind, declaring they would bring peace and safety which were, in fact, false Christs leading many astray. The term Antichrist does not mean the “opposite” of Christ, but rather “instead of” Christ. These pretenders seek to substitute themselves for the only true savior of mankind, Jesus Christ.
What many do not understand, when reading and interpreting scripture, is that the Bible speaks about eternal truths that are much, much greater than can be contained within it’s pages. The Rhema of God, which is the expression of the Logos, is unimaginably vast. Instead of encapsulating all that God is, the Bible only shows different parts of who He really is. It is just that, like Moses, even seeing the hinder parts of our heavenly Father is so awe inspiring that we tend to assume that we have seen all that there is of Him. Here is a truth,
“Man’s mind, without yielding to the Holy Spirit, cannot fully comprehend God…ever.”
It takes the Spirit to know the things of the Spirit
It is written,
“But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things ofGod.”
1 Corrinthians 2:10
In fact, the best that we can hope for is to allow the Holy Spirit to reveal God to us in a manor that we can understand. This is the only way that we can overcome the limitations of our natural minds and come to know God for who He truly is. Some may think, “wow, that sounds mystical.” It isn’t, really. It is just the way it is because God is supernatural.
Given that the scriptures describe things that cannot be contained within it’s passages, this results in the word of God describing different facets of vast, eternal truths. For instance, there are literally hundreds of different names and titles of God in the Bible. Why is this so? It is because God is so magnificent and our language so limited that we cannot describe all that God is in one name. Therefore, the scripture must describe our Father with many different names, albeit chief among them YHWH, to even come close to describing His true nature and magnificence.
False Christs go by many different names
So too, the phenomenon of the Antichrist is described as “the man of sin,” “The lawless one,” the “son of perdition” and so forth. All these names and titles refer to a central evil that is so big, and so terrible, it is hard to describe it in just one word. All the false Christs that have come before are just the outer fringes of a satanic possession culminating in the true Antichrist.
Don’t slice and dice the scriptures too finely
Compartmentalizing of scripture leads to all sorts of false doctrines. Slicing and dicing the scriptures too finely causes division within the Body of Christ. Each exclusive camp of believers dwell on one facet of the whole truth. Thus their viewpoint becomes a “hobby horse” while ignoring the bigger picture of what God is really saying. Slicing and dicing the scriptures, mostly due to man’s natural minded interpretations, accounts of the majority of the division sin the Body of Christ.
We are going to see, in the coming days, more and more false Christs claiming to be Jesus Christ manifest in the flesh. The false Christ, the true Antichrist, according to scriptures, will even show lying signs and wonders to give credence to his ungodly claims. False prophets will accompany false Christs speaking a false gospel. These pretenders are just precursors to the revealing of the prophesied lawless one, the son of perdition.
Why do you need to know about false Christs?
Why is this important to you? Why do you need to know what I am speaking about today? The reason that you need to understand that the scriptures speak about concepts that are bigger than it can contain, is so that you will understand that you need the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you into all truth. Unless you submit your natural mind to the Holy Spirit it is likely that will get you into deep trouble in the coming days. If you allow your natural mind to continue to lead and guide you it may cause you to miss out on what God is doing.
The true manifestation of the Antichrist spirit will embody everything the natural man thinks God should look and act like. The Antichrist is the “knowledge of good” personified. This man of sin is Lucifer manifested in the flesh. The whole world doesn’t wonder after the beast of Revelation because they are stupid. People follow after this false Christ because their natural minds are conditioned to receive him. The Antichrist looks “good” to their natural reasoning. People who do not love truth are vulnerable to deception. Without allowing God to lead and guide you by His Spirit, even when it goes against your natural mind, you have already been “set up” to take the mark of the Beast. It is interesting that people think of beasts as creatures of pure natural instinct devoid of an eternal spirit.
Live by every word that proceeds from God
Christians must live by revelation. Direct revelation from God through His Holy Spirit is how we began. Direct revelation is how all those that make heaven their home shall end. God uses His scriptures as a springboard to know Him, but, they do not contain all there is of Him. God’s truths are “spiritually” discerned. We cannot know our Father except through His Spirit. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil still results in death for those who eat of it. The result of the knowledge of good always brings death. Only through listening to and obeying God’s Holy Spirit, dispite our natural minds, will we stand strong in the midst of “Strong Delusion.”
To reiterate, to be natural minded is death. Life, therefore, is to be spiritually minded. We no longer have the option to be of two minds in this world. In this time of false Christs the only way we truly see is by the light of the world.
It is written,
“ Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
The Spirit of revelation
I write by revelation. I really don’t sit down and think about or plan out what I put down in these essays. Usually, I wake up in the mornings and simply write as the Holy Spirit leads me. These words I write are more than just my “opinion”. These writings are a manifestation of God’s central message of “listen, hear, and obey on time”. As the Holy Spirit leads I write so that you, the reader, may have access to part of what God is saying today.
We are to live by direct revelation
In the end, you need to be receiving revelation from God yourself. I desire to point you in the right direction. Know that you can start hearing the voice of God for yourself and be led by His Spirit personally. Whatever revelation you glean from these essays is a minuscule fraction of what God wants to reveal to you personally. As you “listen, hear, and obey on time” amazing things are going to happen in you and through you. Amen.
