Prophetic Scripture and the Dark Reign of the Antichrist and the Coming Millennial Reign Session.E
Text: 1 John 2:18-27

Introduction: The question now and then is what is the spirit that comes against the Ten Commandments, and player in schools, and in other public places. Today, we have seen people who want to take the name of God off our money, and out of our songs and pledges to our flag and country. It is the very spirit of the Antichrist, Since the days of Adam, it has been estimated the approximately 45 billion human beings have been born upon our earth. Today it is said to be 7 billion alive today. However, by any standard of measurement one might employ, the greatest human (apart from the Son of God Himself) in matters of ability and achievement is yet to make His appearance upon our planet: This is the man of sin; the Antichrist! I. What Are the Aliases of the Antichrist?: a. In the Old Testament: i. The Little Horn in Daniel 7:8. ii. A King, insolent and skilled in intrigue in Daniel 8:23. iii. He is the prince who is to come Daniel 9:26. iv. The one who makes desolate in Daniel 9:27. v. The king who does as he please in Daniel 11:36. vi. A foolish shepherd in Zechariah 11:15. b. And in the New Testament: i. The son of perdition in II Thessalonians 2:3. ii. The rider on the white horse Revelation 6:2. iii. The beast out of the sea Revelation 13:1-9; 17:3&8 c. Where we get the word “Anitchrist”: i. The word “Antichrist” comes from the word (Antichristos) and it is found only five times in the New Testament. ii. In I John 2:18&22 and I John :3; II John 7. iii. The man of lawlessness in II Thessalonians 2:3.
What Are Some of the Differences Between Christ and the Antichrist: a. Here are some of the facts: i. Christ is the truth and Antichrist, the liar. ii. Christ is the Holy One and Antichrist, the lawless one. iii. Christ is the man of sorrow and the Antichrist, the man of sin. iv. Christ is the Son of God; the Antichrist, the son of destruction. v. Christ is the mystery of Godliness and the Antichrist, the mystery of iniquity. vi. Christ is the cleansing of the temple and the Antichrist, the desecrating of the temple. vii. Christ is the Lamb of God and the Antichrist, the beast.

    1 John 2:18-19
    The many antichrists of this verse are essentially the same as the “many false prophets” of 1 John 4:1. The teachers of error are precursors of the supreme human deceiver, the Antichrist.

    2:19. The “many antichrists” had once been part of the same fellowship to which the apostles themselves belonged. The word us, used four times in this verse, obviously contrasts with the “you” of the following verse, which is emphatic in Greek. Here for the first time is seen the “we”–”you”–”us” contrast (cf. 4:4-6).

    The antichrists had not left the church or churches to whom John writes, for if they had they would no longer have been a problem. On the contrary, the apostle is concerned about the exposure his readers have to these men. They departed from the church, which indicated that they did not really “belong” to it in the first place.

    1 John 2:24-27
    The readers can triumph over the wicked one’s agents, the antichrists,by abiding in God’s Word, which they heard from the beginning. As a result, they will abide in the Son and in the Father. As noted earlier (see vv 5-6,14), the “abiding life” is the life lived by a disciple who keeps the Lord’s commandments and is marked by love for the brethren.

    2:25. The antichrists deny “that Jesus is the Christ” (v 22). But only by believing that Jesus is the Christ can a person obtain eternal life (5:1; John 20:30-31). God promises eternal life to any person who believes that Jesus is the Christ. The pronoun He could refer to God or to Christ Himself.

    2:26. The Revisionists brought with them a doctrine of salvation different from the one the readers had heard from the beginning (v 24). They denied that Jesus is the Christ (v 22), and apparently they also denied that eternal life is available through Him alone (in light of v 25). They may have even claimed some special relationship to “the Father,” which John denied (vv 22-23).

    2:27. This verse is the climax of the epistle’s purpose section. His readers are highly competent in the truth and need only to hold fast to what they already know in order to enjoy the full benefits of the “abiding life.”

    The anointing which [they] have received from Him suggests that the readers are the “anointed ones” by means of the Spirit who came to them from Jesus, the “Anointed One” (cf. v 20). The readers’ anointing teaches them to reject the Revisionists’ lie about the “Anointed One.”

    As a result of this anointing they do not need that anyone teach them, a mark of their maturity (see Heb 5:12). This maturity has already been implied elsewhere in this section (cf. 1 John 2:13 b-14,20).

    The two parallel statements–as [it] teaches you concerning all things and just as it has taught you–shows that the ongoing teaching ministry of the Holy Spirit is always consistent with what the Spirit has already taught. That is, whatever the Spirit has previously taught will not be negated or denied by anything He continues to teach. Whatever “revisions” the antichrists taught could be rejected as not from the Holy Spirit if it contradicted what the Spirit had already taught.
