The AntiChrists Of The World

The AntiMessiahs Of This World

The antiMessiahs of this world is the topic of this very important Bible study. These antiMessiahs, also known as the “antiChrists,” is used only in apostle John’s epistles in the Bible. Notice! John says, “Many antichrists (antiMessiahs) have come” (1 John 2:18), indicating that the age of false teachers and counterfeit Christianity was already well under way. Yahshua the Messiah had warned, “For false messiahs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect” (Matthew 24:24). Today, we feel very strongly to preach about this biblical subject for instruction and for warning from the Almighty Father in heaven Yahweh. As always, we will let the Bible interpret itself and we humbly ask for the guidance and wisdom of the Father to help us deliver this heavenly message with you. May you all have the eyes to see and the ears to hear this.

The prefix anti means “against” or “adversary of” or “in place of.” Apostle John wanted to make clear that any teaching contrary to Yahshua Messiah and His purposes is antiMessiah–and that false teachers are antimessiahs, meaning enemies of Messiah Yahshua. John continues to describe the many who are “antiMessiah,” saying: “Who is a liar but he who denies that Yahshua is the Messiah? He is the antiMessiah who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father” (1 John 2:22-24). Notice that John was inspired to warn Christians to hold on to the original teaching that they had been given. This would mean “abiding in”—or obeying—Yahshua Messiah’s direct teaching concerning the Law of Yahweh! For, from the beginning, Yahshua had taught them to “keep the Commandments.” He had continually warned them about using His name and yet disobeying His teachings! Yahshua said: “But why do you call Me ‘Master, Master,’ and do not do the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46). Yahshua also said: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter the Kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven” (Matthew 7:21). Ladies and gentlemen, this is very plain and clear!

So we abide in Yahshua the Messiah and in the Father by obeying Yahweh and living as Yahshua actually did—by every Word of Yahweh! Yahshua explained: “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me” (John 14:23-24). John’s first epistle goes on to describe the “spirit of antiMessiah” in greater detail: “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of Elohim; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of Elohim: every spirit that confesses that Yahshua Messiah has come in the flesh is of Elohim, and every spirit that does not confess that Yahshua Messiah has come in the flesh is not of Elohim. And this is the spirit of the antiMessiah, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. You are of Elohim, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:1-4). Yes, the Bible tells us to pay close attention, open our eyes, scrutinize our spiritual beliefs. Does it match with the authentic teachings Yahshua Messiah taught? There are many fakes out there that trick people into supporting the false doctrine of antiMessiah that oppose biblical truth!

Obviously, a vital key to understanding the teaching of the antiMessiah is to recognize that the false doctrine of all the antiMessiahs does not admit the full humanity of Yahshua the Messiah! It does not admit that Messiah truly “has come in the flesh.” Why? you might ask. What is so very special about Yahshua Messiah having “come in the flesh”? First, we must understand why Satan the devil is continually trying to deceive people into disobeying Yahweh’s Law—the Ten Commandments. Such lawbreaking constitutes sin since “sin is the transgression of the law” (1 John 3:4). And “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). So if Satan can somehow keep human beings from obeying Yahweh—and so yielding to let Yahweh build within them His very nature and character—then these disobedient men and women will continue to be under the death penalty. Cut off from Yahweh, they will be unable to prepare to be kings and priests in Yahshua Messiah’s coming Kingdom on earth (Revelation 5:10) and so replace Satan and his demons.  Did you understand it? So that people will not even try to keep Yahweh’s Commandments, Satan uses the doctrine of AntiMessiah to promote the idea that mankind is unable to keep them! This deceitful doctrine teaches that since Yahweh’s Law is spiritual ans we are only physical (human), we cannot keep the holy, righteous Law of Yahweh. So Yahshua the Messiah had to keep it for us. Now we just “accept Yahshua Messiah” and His righteousness is somehow “imputed” to us—without any requirement for righteous works. This false doctrine of the antiMessiahs relies on a whole series of misunderstandings and perversions of the writings of the apostle Paul. Misguided religious teachers/leaders put a clever “twist” on literally dozens of Bible verses to directly contradict the plain, clear teachings of Yahshua Messiah, of His closest disciple, John, and of His brother, James.

The apostle Peter was even inspired to warn us that “Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which those who are untaught and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures” (2 Peter 3:15-16). Yes, Peter said that men would “twist” Paul’s writings to their own destruction! Peter continues this inspired warning: “Therefore, dear friends, since you already know this, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of lawless men and fall from your secure position” (2 Peter 3:17). Truly, this message needs to be heard now more than ever before! Millions in this deceived world are really confused about many religions and their false teachings. People have become either just plain bored by mainstream religion and/or disillusioned by organized religion in general. So many have simply “tuned out.” Yet a huge number of others have virtually “invented” their own religious beliefs every day. Although Satan is clever enough not to directly teach people to sin, the antiMessiah doctrine nevertheless opens the door for all deceived people to regularly break one or more of the sacred Commandments of Yahweh with impunity—yet still feel that they are somehow “good Christians.” And this confusion leads to religious anarchy. We must understand the Bible truth about faith, grace, and Law of Yahweh!

In closing, beware of the antiMessiahs of this world! The book of Hebrews tells us this about Yahshua Messiah: “For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted” (Hebrews 2:18). And again: “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15). Was this through some supernatural power of His own? Was Yahshua “fully Elohim” while in the human flesh? The truth is that He was the Personality who had been with the Father from the beginning: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim” (John 1:1). But later, “the Word became flesh” (John 1:14). Yes, the fully human Yahshua Messiah was tempted in “all points” as we are, yet without sin. That being so, it becomes clear that there is a way for us, too, to keep the Ten Commandments while fully in the human flesh! But how? The same way Yahshua did! Hebrews further tells us that “in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Yahweh who was able to save Him from death…(Yahshua) was heard because He feared” (Hebrews 5:7). If Yahshua had to literally cry out with tears to the Father to “save Him from death,” it should be obvious that He was truly in the human flesh—and that we also should cry out for Yahweh’s help in the same way! Yahshua did set the “example” for us in keeping the Ten Commandments in the human flesh! Yahshua does fully understand the pulls of the human nature with which we must all contend. Through His Spirit within us, Yahshua the Messiah will empower us to overcome temptation and keep the Ten Commandments while fully in the human flesh! We hope that you’ll be enlightened after reading this heavenly message of instruction and of warning. May Yahweh bless the doers of His Word and not the hearers only. These things we ask and pray to Almighty Father Yahweh through Yahshua the Messiah our coming King, Master and Savior, Amen. Our greetings of love and peace to all. Halleluyah and Shalom!
