Before I go into detail as to what the Christianized anti-christ teachings are, I would like to take the time and explain what the anti-christ system is according to the Bible.
The word ‘anti’ simply means against, or the opposite; which means the antichrist system will be any system or teaching that is in opposition of what Jesus taught. The Bible basically gives us two examples (at least what I have found so far) of what an antichrist is.
“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” 1 John 2:18
“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” 1 John 2:22
“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.” 2 John 1:7
“Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God; and this is that spirit of anti-christ, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” 1 John 4:2-3
So now the question is: “What does it mean ‘Jesus Christ is come in the flesh‘”?
It is interesting to note that Catholics, Evangelicals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Baptists, Seventh Day Adventists and Islam, all teach that Jesus was born and that He lived in the flesh amongst us. Yet, Catholics teach that you should baptize your babies, while the Evangelicals and Baptists teach that you should be baptized in your early teens or twenties. Then you have the Catholics, Evangelicals and Baptists, who teach that God is a monster and will torment you in an eternal fire if you are not saved, while the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventists teach that hell will end your suffering.
So which teaching is correct? Is John telling us that all those religions are of God, and that we should listen to everything they teach? Absolutely not! And even if we tried, it is not possible because all those religions work against one another.
So it is clear to see that the phrase ‘Jesus Christ is come in the flesh’ has a far deeper meaning to it.
Jesus Christ came in the flesh. The term “flesh” is a symbol of our sinful nature, which means that Jesus was born of the same sinful nature that the rest of us are born with. At the same time, Jesus was also born of the Holy Spirit; who not only helped Him overcome His sinful nature, but also prevented Him from committing His first sin. And when we are born again, born of the Holy Spirit, the same Holy Spirit that Jesus was born of; then we have access to the exact same power that Jesus did. And once we receive that power, then we can go and sin no more, just like Jesus did.
Christianity flat-out denies this. The religion denies that Jesus came in the flesh.
Christianity believes that Jesus was part God while He walked upon the face of this earth. This part-man/part-God state then enabled Him to remain sin-free, according to their doctrine. As a result, they do not believe that we can have the power to overcome sin – not even after we are born of the Holy Spirit. Oh, they believe that we can overcome outward sins, which they have termed as “gross sins” or “worldly sins”, such as murder, abortion, illegal drugs and porn. But they do not believe that we can overcome the “smaller sins” like lying, bullying or gossiping.
So it is clear to see that Christianity denies the Jesus who was born of the same “flesh”, or sinful nature, that we are born with. In other words, they do not teach that Jesus Christ came in the flesh, but rather, that He came as half-God and half-man. There is no evidence in the Bible to support such a ridiculous doctrine.
This is what the Bible says:
“Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:” Philippians 2:6
“But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:” Philippians 2:7
“And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” Philippians 2:8
How much clearer do you want it? Seriously!
Verse 6 indicates that Jesus could have kept His Godly characteristics, and verse 7 tells us that He chose not to. But rather, He made Himself of “no reputation”. God does not lack reputation! So for Jesus to make Himself of “no reputation” means that He gave up everything that made Him God-like. All special powers and all knowledge – other than what was revealed to Him through the Spirit – was left at the throne. Because if He would have had an ounce of God’s special powers, then the Bible is lying when it says that He made Himself of “no reputation”.
This is not rocket science. A three year old could understand it.
“Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:” Hebrews 2:7
So Jesus was made lower than the angels. How much lower, I don’t know. But I do know this: Angels can fall into sin. And if Jesus was made lower than the angels, then that means He could have fallen too. But, if He had held onto one small dose of God’s power, then He would NOT have been able to fall. Because there is not a bone in God that has the ability to sin. Not one!
That means Jesus came to earth in the “flesh”, with the ability to sin. But because He was born of the Holy Spirit right from the get-go, he did not sin. And once we are born again, of that SAME Holy Spirit that Jesus was born of, then we too have access to the same power that He did.
Christianity totally and completely denies this! As a matter of fact, instead of feeling remorse for their wrong-doing, it’s almost as if they pride themselves in their “weaknesses”.
Anyhow, there you have the definition of the antichrist according to the Bible.
Christianity wants us to believe that there is some evil monster who will rise up and torment people. But the Bible makes it clear that the devil is way to cunning for that. The Bible teaches he (or she, which by the way is a more correct term) will come as an angel of light. And this is exactly what Christianity is…the angel of light….or the wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Jesus warned His disciples of no other religion, except to watch out for Christianity. And He gave specific instructions NOT to follow after them! Imagine that!
Until Next Time!
