Audio Length: 50:42 (ministered @ Grace Community church in Arroyo Hondo New Mexico on 3/18)
satan is the master illusionist. Just like a magician knows how to divert your attention in order for a “magic trick” to work. satan is also diverting people’s attention away from the truth, away from God by creating chaos, confusion, doubt and divisions. But that’s all just a smoke screen of what he is really dong behind the scenes.
The working of the spirit of antichrist is another sign of the appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ in the clouds (the rapture). It is desperately preparing the world for the great tribulation and the coming of the antichrist whom is also looking for a physical host to work through (Revelation 13). We needs to understand what is going on now and compare current events with the Holy Bible in order to stand in the gap for others more effectively just a little while longer.
Opening Scriptures: 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ in the tribulation period), and by our gathering together unto Him (the rapture of the church before the great tribulation period), That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first (a sign of the rapture of the church age), and that man of sin be revealed (a sign of the second coming of Jesus Christ), the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as god sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is god.
Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work (spirit of antichrist): only He (the Holy Spirit) who now letteth will let, until He (the Holy Spirit) be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the Spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:
The antichrist is opposite of Jesus Christ. Everything Jesus Christ stands for: Righteousness, Holiness, Godliness… the antichrist stands against
Even him, whose coming is after the working of satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion (the antichrist is the strong delusion where people will believe he is god in Revelation 13), that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
The spirit of antichrist has already been working for thousands of years and responding in this last generation to what the Holy Spirit ministers through His pastors, teachers, prophets, evangelists, and lay ministers in the authority of Jesus Christ.
Victoria Martens was a 10-year-old little girl who was brutally murdered in New Mexico by her mother and her party friends. That’s the spirit of antichrist! Teens committing suicide, School shootings That’s the spirit of antichrist working! – “positive thoughts and prayers is not what we need. We need to do something now!” Which ultimately is the rejection of God and the power of prayer (crying out to God for salvation and for justice).
This is what the Apostle John saw in this wicked, adulterous and perverse generation by the divine revelation of the Holy Spirit. A Generation who rejects God and His power thereof:
1 John 4:1-6
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 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 antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them (the sinful world): because greater is He (the Lord Jesus Christ) that is in you, than he (the devil) that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them (the world worries about the temporary things that will perish and have no eternal value rather than worried about eternity). We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the Spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
The world is the spirit of error, satanically influenced by the spirit of antichrist
The spirit of antichrist Is Working Diversions
Galatians 5:19-21 (works of the flesh which is antichrist)
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery (lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes: adultery of the eye’s, pornography), fornication (sex), uncleanness (abominable sins such as LBGTPQ), lasciviousness (lewdness)
public nudity-immodest clothing both men and women. Women in Fort Collins Colorado protested to have rights to walk around in public topless. This is the spirit of antichrist at work!
Verse 20: Idolatry (worship of flesh/sin, gender, race, sexuality, sports, politics) witchcraft (spell cast, curse cast, divination, horoscopes and also mind altering drugs/pharmakeia according to: Strong’s Complete Dictionary of Bible Words 5331-5332. The Opioid epidemic) hatred, variance (contentions), emulations (selfish ambitions-lovers of themselves/abortions) wrath, strife, seditions (protest, looting, rioting and lawlessness), heresies (false doctrines/apostasy),
Verse 21: Envyings, murders, drunkenness, reveling (rock and roll), and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
This Is That Generation
And it shall come to pass, when thou shalt shew this people all these words, and they shall say unto thee, Wherefore hath the Lord pronounced all this great evil against us? or what is our iniquity? or what is our sin that we have committed against the Lord our God? Then shalt thou say unto them, Because your fathers have forsaken Me, saith the Lord, and have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshipped them, and have forsaken Me and have not kept My law; And ye have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, ye walk every one after the imagination (dictates) of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto Me:
This is that generation, nothing new under the sun! We as a nation has been sowing into destruction for decades just like Israel back in the days of Jeremiah and we’re reaping a culture of curse, death and destruction quickly
America is more sinful than Sodom and Gomorrah, due to the fact that they did not have the technology as we do today to take sin farther into deeper perversion and depravity, bankrupting humanity spiritually, more quickly than ever in the history of human kind.
All these are tall-tell signs of the rapture of the church and the second coming of Jesus Christ. You see the spirit of antichrist is working to prepare the way for the rise of the antichrist himself and the world is already being duped into the wicked schemes of the devil and don’t know it. Everything that is going on today is all literally a Heaven and Hell issue. The only remedy, the only answer is Jesus Christ
How To Pray For This Lost Generation
This is a lost Generation that is desperately in need of Jesus Christ. How can one believe and receive eternal life? We as Christians must pray that the Lord will manifest Himself personally to sinners and heathen
Romans 10:20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I (Jesus Christ) was found of them that sought Me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after Me.
God Almighty must draw people to His Word of Truth (Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible) first and must hear the truth. The Holy Spirit will illuminate and convince people of God’s Truth. When sinners choose Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit will lead a person to repentance in order to receive the promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
John 6:44 No man can come to Me, except the Father which hath sent Me draw him (sinners and heathens to repentance): and I will raise him up at the last day.
