ALMIGHTY GOD HATES the spirit of anti-Christ. Yes, you heard me right, HE HATES it. The spirit of anti-Christ reveals itself in this one major way: it denies that Yahshua Jesus is the Messiah. To say that Jesus is not the Messiah is the epitome of evil, and the Holy Bible calls they who say such things liars and deceivers.
In the above picture, the giant warrior named Goliath also defied Almighty God and the armies of Israel; consequently, he fell down dead under the hand of the Godly young sheepherder named David.
The Messiah came to the earth as a man and to deny this is also a sign of anti-Christ and places a person’s soul in jeopardy. The Almighty is adamant about it! Please read First John 2:22, First John 4:3, and Second John 1:7 to find out just how serious He is on this subject. Many millions do not understand just how much the Almighty hates this. Mark the man who denies that Jesus is the Messiah, for that person is of the worst sort of rebellion, stubbornness, pride, and foolishness.
The Creator is very pleased that a person would acknowledge Yahshua as the Messiah. When Christ asked His disciples, “Who do you say that I am?”, Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Christ called Peter blessed as a result. You see, Peter had listened to Christ’s teachings and had desired that the Almighty would grant him understanding. This is the single most important thing in all the earth, to believe in your heart that Jesus is the Messiah that Almighty God raised from the dead, and to make Him the Lord of your life. The spirit of anti-Christ resists this very thing.
Let us consider one or two other things. The majority of the world is forcefully pressing for peace at any and all costs and this sounds good, but it is not of Almighty God. There is a time for war and a time for peace. Christ said that He did not come to bring peace on earth, but to bring a sword. He made it clear, that to follow Him would cause division even among members of the same family. The kind of peace that Messiah brings is reconciliation between God and man, but the world’s peace includes continuing hostilities against the Father and the Son. Our heavenly Father will never bless a peace that denies that Yahshua is the Messiah, because it is nothing more than an empty false peace.
The spirit of anti-Christ completely hates the Creator and His Messiah. Rebellion is the hallmark of this evil. It refuses to submit to proper authority. It refuses Godly rules. It hates truth. It refuses proper discipline. It delights in destruction and mayhem. It has a very high opinion of itself and its-right-to-do-whatever-it chooses. This spirit of anti-Christ sometimes has a face of humility with a heart of contempt. The spirit of anti-Christ makes up fake morality and parades it around as right and good; thereby, deceiving many millions.
Notice in First John 2:22, that the Almighty calls Messiah-deniers liars. The Creator is taking away all doubt as to how He feels about denying His Son. When He has done so much to rescue us from evil, it is unspeakably evil to trample His love under foot. The spirit of anti-Christ is alive and strong among us. Beware that you do your duty to keep this spirit off of you and that you embrace Yahshua ha Meshiak. (Jesus the Messiah the Savior of men)
