The Spirit of Antichrist and the Sword of God!


>Since the cross there have been many wars fought on this earth created by God, and a large percentage always use the excuse of differences in religious belief as justification for attempting to destroy their enemies.  The conflict in the Middle East has such a justification behind it in Islam believing that Israel has no right to live on part of the land given to them by Abraham, claiming that Abraham gave it to them through Ishmael, Abraham’s first son.  It was, of course, Muhammad, claiming to be the prophet of Allah, who took the Old and New Testaments to write what is known as the Koran, a terribly mutilated version of his own making, which shifted the Biblical characters and their sayings to match his own purposes.  He has been the major false prophet since the cross and Islam is the real spirit of antichrist.  In several places in the Koran there are linked definitive statements implying Jesus Christ was not the flesh and blood Son of the living God, and it identifies God as Allah.  It specifically states several times that he could not be, because Allah has no Son.  Muhammad did not have the Spirit of God.  He was the greatest of the false prophets of the post New Testament period, and the Koran is the document that is leading the world into the final conflict of this age, which will culminate in the battle of Armageddon.  There was a heretical group in churches before the time of Muhammad that believed Jesus was a phantom, not a flesh and blood man, but Islam, and its specific denial that Jesus was the flesh and blood Son of God, and the Koran’s violent twisting of both the Old and New Testaments, is the final spirit of antichrist for this present age.

1 John 4:1-3 – Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. [2] Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: [3] 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.

1 John 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.

We are headed for the final showdown between Christ and the antichrist personified in a single man, who will lead ten Islamic nations against Israel and, some three and a half years later, will lead the ungodly nations in a final battle called Armageddon.  The belief in Christ by the totally Jewish membership of the first church, caused their families to disown them, and they lost their family inheritances.  Their foes were those of their own households.  But there is coming a final conflict that will end the spirit of antichrist and the antichrist himself at the battle of Armageddon.  It will be the Word of God, the Living Word of God, who will end this age with the SWORD of his word from his lips proclaiming it as the returning Lion of Judah.

Matthew 10:32-34 – Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. [33] But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. [34] Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a SWORD.

Revelation 19:11-21 – And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. [12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. [13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. [14] And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. [15] And out of his mouth goeth a sharp SWORD, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. [16] And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. [17] And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; [18] That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. [19] And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. [20] And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. [21] And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which SWORD proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Ezekiel 39:17-22 – And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord God; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. [18] Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. [19] And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. [20] Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord God. [21] And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them. [22] So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward.

Ezekiel 39:28,29 – Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. [29] Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God.

Zechariah 14:9 – And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.

The Spirit of Antichrist and the Sword of God!


Since the cross there have been many wars fought on this earth created by God, and a large percentage have used the excuse of differences in religious beliefs as justification for attempting to destroy their enemies.  The conflict in the Middle East has such a justification behind it in Islam believing that Israel has no right to live on part of the land given to them by Abraham, claiming that Abraham gave it to them through Ishmael, Abraham’s first son.  It was, of course, Muhammad, claiming to be the prophet of Allah, who took the Old and New Testaments to write what is known as the Koran, a terribly mutilated version of his own making, which shifted the biblical characters and their sayings to suit his own purposes.  He has been the major false prophet since the cross and Islam is the spirit of antichrist.  In several places in the Koran there are definite statements that Jesus Christ was not the flesh and blood Son of the living God, who they identify as Allah.  The Koran specifically states several times that that he was not because Allah has no son.  Muhammad did not write led by the Spirit of God.  He was the greatest of the false prophets of the New Testament age, and the Koran is the document that is leading the world of today into the final great conflict of this age, the battle of Armageddon.  There was a heretical group in the early churches before the time of Muhammad that believed Jesus was a phantom, not a flesh and blood man, but Islam, and its specific denial that Jesus was not the Son of God, and its violent twisting of both the Old and New Testament, is the growing manifestation of the spirit of antichrist for this last age.

I John 4:1-3 – Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits, whether they are of god: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.  [2] Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God. [3] 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.

I John 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.

We are headed for the final showdown between Christ and the antichrist personified in a single man, who will lead ten Islamic nations against Israel and, some three and one-half years later, will lead all the ungodly nations against the remnant of Israel in the Negev.  The belief in Christ by the members of the first church, which was all Jewish, caused their families to disown them, and they lost their family inheritances.  Their foes were composed of their own households.  But there is coming a final conflict that will end the spirit of antichrist and the antichrist himself at the battle of Armageddon.  It will be the Word of God, the Living Word of God, who will end this age with the SWORD of his Word from his lips proclaiming it.

Mathew 10:32-34 – Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess before my Father which is in heaven.  [33] But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. [34] Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a SWORD.

Revelation 19:11-21 – And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.  [12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.  [13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.  [14] and the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.  [15] And out of his mouth goeth a sharp SWORD, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  [16] And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.  [17] And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves unto the supper of the great God;  [18] That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.  [19] And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.  [20] And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image.  These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.  [21] And the remnant were slain with the SWORD of him that sat upon the horse, which SWORD proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

The following Scriptures were written by Ezekiel about 700 years before John wrote Revelation.  Please compare Revelation 19:17 to 21 with the following from Ezekiel 39:17-22.

Ezekiel 39:17-22 – And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord God; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice on the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.  [18] Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.  [19] And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice that I have sacrificed for you.  [20] Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord God.  [21] And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.  [22] So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward.

This marks the end of the battle of Armageddon, which closes what has been called the tribulation period, and describes the beginning of the reign of Messiah.

Ezekiel 39:28,29 – Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them into their own land, and have left none of them any more there.  [29] Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God.

Zechariah 14:9 – And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day there shall be one Lord, and his name one.
