Much confusion about the Antichrist

In Christendom, we can find lots of people who do not believe Jesus Christ is the sent one from God (the Word) having come in the flesh. Lots of people who call themselves Christian say that Jesus is God having come in the flesh. Today there are still millions of people (who claim to be Christian, but) who keep denying that Jeshua (or Jesus) is the Kristos or Christ. In the letters of John we find that such a person is called an antichrist — denying the Father and the Son. By not accepting the Words of God, that Jesus is His son, they in a way are also an antichrist of which the Bible speaks. When there is spoken about an antichrist there is not explicitly meant one person, but that antichrist can be many people. For the apostle John it is not about one evil person who is going to come at the End Times. He recognises that already in his lifetime there were antichrists going around. The world has known already several Antichrists (including absolutely everyone who doesn’t believe in Jesus). Also for Jesus it was clear that there would come more false Christs or that the antichrist consists of more than one, namely several “false messiahs and false prophets” (Matthew 24:24).

Antichrist

Much confusion exists in most minds upon Antichrist by reason of the nonsense written by the blind prophet Baxter, of “Christian Herald” fame, and similar false teachers.

All the misunderstandings are cleared up by a careful reading of all the texts in which the word is found. They are as follows:

“Now are there many antichrists” (1 John ii. 18);
“He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son” (1 John ii. 22);
“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” (1 John iv. 3) ;
“Many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is that deceiver and an antichrist” (2 John 7).

“ Little children, it is the last time, and as ye have heard that Antichrist shall come, even now are there many Antichrists: whereby we know that it is the last time.” (1Jo 2:18 GenevaBible)

“22 Who is a liar, but he that denieth that Jesus is that Christ? the same is that Antichrist that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father. 24 Let therefore abide in you that same which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning, shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even that eternal life.” (1Jo 2:22-25 GenevaBible)

“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is not of God: but this is the spirit of Antichrist, of whom ye have heard, how that he should come, and now already he is in this world.” (1Jo 4:3 GenevaBible)

“For many deceivers are entered into this world, which confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. He that is such one, is a deceiver and an Antichrist.” (2Jo 1:7 GenevaBible)

“ For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, so that if it were possible, they should deceive the very elect.” (Mt 24:24 GenevaBible)
