The Spirit of the Antichrist

by Mike Ratliff

15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world–the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions–is not from the Father but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. 18 Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us. (1 John 2:15-19)

The world system is of the Antichrist. It is is alive and well throughout the world and very prevalent in the Church. A good friend sent me the link to a very good sermon on this from 1 John 2:15-19. Follow it here. I pray that it blesses you as it did me. Examine yourselves my brethren.

  1. This was very good. I am familiar with this teaching…..my pastor used to teach this. ( divisions for the sake of maifesting who is a true believer, and the spirit of antichrist being a “replacement” for Christ) . I had never heard anyone else teach this, very good. We had many people who would come and stay awhile but then leave because the Word was not enough…….He quoted this very passage many times. It was very encouraging to me to hear that it was talking of leaving the truth, not necessarily leaving a group of people, denomination, ministry ect. I am so thankful I am one of the sheep of the Good shepherd and nothing can separate me from him.

  4. That was an excellent sermon . Thankyou for posting it. I think I will have a look at some of the other studies on there too.
    I am a believer who does not have a ‘church’, but not because I leave the truth being taught, sadly because I have not yet found it being taught!I feel very blessed to have found this site Mike and the teaching here and linked to here.
