A great spiritual blindness covers the earth today and many Christians are caught in a web of deceit. Why have so many often been blind to the meaning of the great events transpiring in our time?
Why have they not bothered to relate the Word of God to affairs of life which lie beyond our personal interests, our families, and our immediate circle of Christian friends?
Look at (1 Jn. 2:18), Who is this antichristos, Antichrist? Is he the Emperor Domitian, the Gnostics, Nicolaitans, Nazarenes, Cerinthians, etc., etc.? Answer: Any person, thing, doctrine, system of religion, policy, etc., which is opposed to Jesus to spread of His Gospel, is antichrist.
Every man, teacher and writer who opposes the Gospel, is a genuine antichrist. The heresies which sprang up in the days of John were the Antichrist of that time. As there has been a succession of oppositions to Christianity in its Spirit and spread through every age since its promulgation in the world, so there has been a succession of antichrists.
(1 Jn. 2:22-23). “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is Antichrist that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.” (See: (1 Jn. 4:3), (2 Jn. 7), (1Jn. 2:22).
