THEME: THE ANTI-CHRIST
1 John 2:22-23
“Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.”
-Many people have a different notion of who the antichrist is. As revealed from the above scriptures, the antichrist is a person who denies that Jesus is the Christ and that Jesus is God. Jesus as the Christ means the Anointed one and the Messiah. Whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ does not believe in His resurrection power. Matthew 28:11-15, gives an account of a falsified message of the resurrection of Christ. When the guards came and told chief priests of the events that happened during resurrection, they conspired with the elders to bride the guards to conceal the truth. They therefore spread decisive messages to the Jews and many people and, religions do not believe in Jesus’ resurrection to this day. Afterwards, many theories were advanced to inculcate falsehood through the resurrection story including and not limited to:- The theft theory, unknown tomb theory, the swoon or resuscitation theory, the hallucination theory, the impersonation theory etc. God the Father gave us His only begotten Son to be the atonement of our sins, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. Anyone who denies that the Father and the Son are One, together with the Holy Spirit has the spirit of the antichrist. Therefore he/she denies the power of the Triune God and the Holy Trinity. Therefore, whoever then denies the Son does not have the Father, but anyone who believes in the Son has the Father, and has eternal life.
