“And every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus does not belong to God. This is the spirit of the antichrist that, as you heard, is to come, but in fact is already in the world.” (John 4:3)
Many antichrists have been appearing between Christ’s first and second comings, but the greatest Antichrist — the lawlessness one — will rise to power during The End Times. He will be a liar, a deceiver and won’t acknowledge Christ. Many will be easily deceived and will embrace the Antichrist because his spirit dwells in the world. Move closer to God to appear before Christ when He calls you before or at His Second Coming. Acknowledge the Grace of God before the apparition of the Antichrist in the world scene — he is in the world and about to debut — because thereafter it will be difficult to follow Christ.
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. But the one who restrains is to do so only for the present, until he is removed from the scene. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord [Jesus] will kill with the breath of his mouth and render powerless by the manifestation of his coming, the one whose coming springs from the power of Satan in every mighty deed and in signs and wonders that lie, and in every wicked deceit for those who are perishing because they have not accepted the love of truth so that they may be saved.” (2 Thessalonians 2:7-10)
The arrival of the Antichrist cannot occur until sufficient Apostasy is in the world. Then the unrestrained Antichrist will manifest himself with deeds, signs and wonders to deceive the elected, who will perish because they will reject Christ, but He will annihilate on His Second Coming the Antichrist. Avoid Satan through consistency in the state of grace and closeness to God.
“For at that time there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will be. And if those days had not been shortened, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect they will be shortened.” (Matthew 24:21-22)
“Satan knows Christ will annihilate His enemies soon, so Satan launched a fierce final battle against the Catholic Church to cause the damnation of many faithful… Satan is a master of lie, disguise, destruction and false promise. He instigates war and falsehood till Christ Second Coming through false prophets, who will operate on social media and commit heinous activities such as rape abortion, genocide, narcotics and satanic cult,” according to The Great Tribulation.
