The Antichrist

Because of the many misconceptions among Christians about the identity of the Antichrist, I've decided to shed more light on what the Bible states about the Antichrist in order to present a clearer picture of who the Antichrist is and what he represents.

1st of all Let us take a close look at the meaning of the word:"Anti Christ"
Anti:Against, Opposed to, in Place of
Christ:The Messiah: Jesus Christ

From the definition above, we can deduce that the Antichrist is simply someone or something that is against/opposed to Christ and what He represents. We can also deduce that the Antichrist takes Christ Place. i.e he/it rules in the place where Christ is supposed to rule.

The word "Antichrist" can only be found in the 1st and 2nd Books of John. I would like us to examine some of the verses that the word is found in order to have a clearer picture of what John meant when he wrote about the Antichrist.

-1 John 2:18-19:"Little Children it is the last time and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come,even now there are many antichrists;whereby You know it is the last time.They (The antichrists) went out from us but they were not of us, for if they had been of us,they would no doubt have continued with us but they went out that they might be made manifest that they were not of us.

The Anti Christ is Synonymous with the Anti Christs
In the verses quoted above, John stated that "an antichrist" was to come at the last time and that at the time he was writing there were "many antichrists" and that the fact that there were many antichrists proved it was the last time. We can deduce from all this that the Antichrist and the antichrists are synonymous because John specifically stated that an antichrist was to come at the last time and that the fact there were antichrists in his time was evidence that it was the last time .

John also stated that the antichrists went out from them (the true Christians) and that if they were true Christians they would have continued with them but they went out in order for their true state to be manifest to everyone: That they were never really Christians. So what/who does the Anti christ and these Antichrists represent?For the answer to those questions, I would want us to explore more Bible verses:

The Anti Christs

1 John 2:22:"Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?He is antichrist that denieth the father and the son.

From the verse above, we can see that any one who denies that Jesus is the Christ is a liar. We can also see that anyone that denies God and Jesus is an Antichrist. Now the questions we ought to ask ourselves are why did John state that anyone that denies that Jesus is the Christ is a liar? and how do we deny God and Jesus?

1 John 1:10. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
2 Thess 2:12:That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 

Spiritually speaking, a lie is anything that runs contrary to God's will or order of things and that is why the Bible calls satan (and his seed) a liar (John 8:44) i.e he makes mankind to reject God's will for their lives by ensuring that they make choices that are contrary to His will (Gen 2:17, Gen 3:4):

The truth is that Jesus Christ is the only person anointed (the name Christ means the anointed one of God) by God to save the world and the only way to God (John 3:16, John 14:6, Acts 4:12, 1 Tim 1:15, 1 Thess 1:10). The truth is also that we are all unworthy sinners who can never work our way back to God by our own efforts because we have a sinful and corrupt nature. (Isa 64:6, Rom 3:23, Gal 2:20-21)

Anyone who rejects the fact that Jesus is the only person that can save humanity (by trusting in the works that come from their sinful nature) and rejects the need to submit to His Holy Spirit and die to sin is therefore a liar because he/she rejects the truth: That Jesus is the one and only Christ that can save humanity from their sins and the only way back to the Father.

They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.Titus 1:16

We deny God when we refuse to submit to His will for our lives. We deny Jesus when we do not adhere to his teachings, reject His Cross, reject the need to be regenerated by His Spirit and place our emphasis on works i.e relying on self works and rejecting the need for Christ to live and work through us (Phil 3:18-19, Gal 2:21)

The Anti Christ:
-1 John 4:3-4:"And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus 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'is it 'in the world'.Ye are of God and have overcome them for greater is he that is in You than he that is in the world". 

From the verses above we can see that "every spirit" that confesses not that Jesus is come in the flesh is not of God but is the"spirit of the antichrist" which John claimed was already "in the world" during his time. It also goes on to say that greater is the person who is in the church than the person who is in the world.

I think the verses are self explanatory but I will still try to explain a bit further to make them clearer. The Bible is clear that the antichrist is a spirit. It states that every spirit that doesn't confess Jesus is come in the flesh is not of God.

In other words, every Spirit that doesn't show that Jesus has entered (come) and taken residence in a person (the flesh) is not of God: Anybody who manifests a spirit (by his/her actions) that negates what Christ represents is manifesting the Antichrist. It also goes on to say that the Antichrist is "in the world":

Why do you think the world has a lawless and rebellious nature? Why do you think they are intolerant of the Gospel? Why do you think they have a strong inclination to sin and reject what the Bible says about Jesus and His will for humanity? The answer to these questions is: Because of the spirit of rebellion (antichrist spirit) that indwells and works in them and thus makes them antichrists. (Note that the phrase "the spirit that indwells us" doesn't mean the spirit in your body of flesh and blood, it means the spirit inside your real self i.e the mind/soul that controls the material vessel that we call the body)

But to all those who have put on the image of the new man: Jesus Christ by accepting Him into their hearts and letting Him work through them (Col 3:10), John had this to say: "Greater is He who is in you (The Holy spirit) than he that is in the world" (spirit of rebellion:antichrist)

The Antichrist is the spirit that empowers all the rebellious and sinful tendencies that govern the hearts of the children of men (remember John made it clear that it was already "in" the world) and pits them against their Maker (makes them antichrists). It is the spirit of satan that empowers this cursed nature (The same way the Spirit of Christ empowers the nature of God in His church i.e.the children of God)

How it Manifests in the Church
There are millions of nominal Christians around the world today who are anything but Christian. They reject the cross of Christ and place all their emphasis on self works (Romans 4:4-5) They wear religious garbs but inwardly they are un-regenerated (Isa 30:1, Matt 23:28). They emphasize the prosperity of the body instead of the prosperity of the soul and glory in the works of the flesh instead of the cross of Christ (Gal 6:12-14, Matt 13:22).

From the definition of the word antichrist above, these people are antichrists because they are opposed to what Christ represents: Righteousness self denial etc and when they act like this, they deny the God they profess to serve because they reject his path to salvation: Jesus Christ.

In the so called 'church', the Antichrist manifests as false teachings. Doctrines that exalt the self instead of the savior and teachings that promote self enhancement instead of self denial. It also manifests as false miracles and lying wonders in order to delude people into accepting the Antichrist spirit as that of the real Christ.
That is why Jesus said that in the last days, many would come in His name saying: 'He is the Christ' and would deceive many (Matt 24:5). Notice that these people come as Christians (in Christ's name), but yet they deceive many.

How do you think they accomplish this? By fooling people (twisting scripture to conform to their antichrist desires 2 Pet 2:1, 2 Pet 3:16) to accept antichrist tendencies as being Christ's. Jesus also said that the deception would be so strong that if it were possible the elect would be deceived (Matt 24:24 ). This should show you how strong the deception would be. 

The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.Prov 14:15

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1

Many people would preach (half truths and blatant lies) in Jesus name, quote from the Bible, pray in Jesus name, perform miracles, give alms, pay tithes and advocate legalistic 'works' of self-effort and perfectionist performance and piety. But it would negate Christ's finished work on the cross and would promote the self's abilities and desires. And that is what classifies their actions as Antichrist.

For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.Rom 10:3 

The Bible states that the Antichrists went out of the true Christians (departed from the true faith).'Christianity' in its form today has departed from the true faith and is now a man made institution of works and self centered doctrines. It is founded on man made doctrines and that is the reason why it is divided: Anglicans are built on what the Anglicans deem to be good, Catholics are built on what Catholics feel is godly, Pentecostals are built on what they feel is of God etc.and that is also the reason why there is an abundance of false teaching in the church today : Because it is built on what the people feel is good , not on Christ:

As a result of all this, we see so called Christians today condoning things clearly forbidden by God: Homosexuality, Greed, Attachment to mundane things etc.

As true followers of Christ, we should be built on Christ, not on man made institutions and doctrines. Jesus didn't come to make you a Baptist or an Episcopalian. He came to regenerate you to bear His image and reconcile you with your Maker.
The purpose of His death was not to give you the ability to be able choose or develop your own church. The purpose of His death was to purchase you and make you His own Church (Body) on earth (1 Cor 6:20, Acts 20:28)

Also these days, so called Christians are drawn more to their so called pastors and prophets than they are to Jesus. They are like babies that never want to grow up. They prefer following the counsel of the so called clergy to searching out the scriptures by themselves. They also prefer to remain reliant on the so called clergy: Any problem or challenge that they have is taken to the 'powerful' man of God instead of Jesus. These practices are not representative of Jesus Christ but are Antichrist.

Many of God's children still think that satan's Antichrist 'church' system is of God and that is why the Bible states in Rev 18:4:":...Come out of her(Babylon), my people (God's people), that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues". Many of God's people (Zion) have been fooled to accept Babylon (system of the antichrist) as ideal.

They are fooled by the fact that the prophets of Babylon use Jesus name in all they do and quote from the scripture. But what many of God's people are ignorant of is that God cannot be found in the walls of the buildings they go to every Sunday: They are ignorant of the fact that true Christians meet as a Church and not in a Church: Irrespective of where Christians meet they are collectively the Church of Christ on earth.

The minute God's people realize that they are supposed to be God's Church (Body) on earth they would stop paying all the attention they pay to the building they call church and start paying attention to each other: The true Church. As it stands today in so many 'Churches', a lot of money (sometimes running into millions of dollars) is devoted to the buildings and to the 'Pastor' while the true Church is neglected: People glory more in how many people can be seated in their 'churches' than in how many people are truly serving the Lord.

Also, the Lord cannot be found by joining the choir, doing charitable deeds or paying tithes (works) God can only be found in Christ and the path to Christ is the way of the cross (self denial). That is why the angel of God cries out for Zion to depart from Babylon: Choosing to Remain in Babylon (Antichrist system of falsehood) would only lead to deception and subsequently God's judgment because the truth can only be found in Christ.

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, that they should believe a lie:That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.2 Thess 2:10-12
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.John 3:19

I know that some of the people who read the things that I wrote above would disagree vehemently with many of the points I made. They would point to the good works that many people in the 'church' system do. They would also claim that many people in the 'Church' system genuinely believe they are serving the Lord and that they diligently support causes that promote His Kingdom on earth. They would also be very keen to emphasize the fact that majority of professing 'Christians' are in the church system in order to justify it.

They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?John 8:33
They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.John 8:39
Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.John 8:41

The Jews in Jesus time also believed they were of God. They called God and Abraham their Father. As custodians of the Law, they must have performed all their religious obligations regularly and wholeheartedly:

They must have read the Tanakh very diligently, tried to obey its instructions in their "own" power and paid their Tithes. They even believed that they were free because "they were not in bondage to anyone". However their feelings and beliefs did not change Jesus Mind about them.

The fact that they called God and Abraham their Father did not fool Jesus. Their so called good works, observance of the Sabbath and study of the Old testament did not deceive Him. Even the argument that they were descendants of Abraham the Father of Faith was not powerful enough to convince Him to change His mind about them because He knew the true condition of their heart: They were under the influence of their Father the devil and not the God that they claimed to worship:

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44

Majority does not carry the vote in the Kingdom of God, truth does. Jesus only had 12 disciples (1 later betrayed Him) and a handful of followers on earth in His day. On the other hand, the Pharisees and the religious zealots in His time had a greater followership but it didn't change the fact that He was right and they were wrong. We must never use numbers as a yardstick to determine what is true

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matt 7:13-14

Any 'Jesus'(or God) that we conceive in our minds that is different from the Jesus revealed in the Bible is a false Jesus even if we call him (the person that we imagine or conceive) Jesus, serve Him diligently and sincerely believe in our minds that He is the real Jesus.

Sincerely believing a lie does not make the lie the truth: A dog would always remain a dog even if its owner treats it as if it were a cat and sincerely believes in His heart that it is a cat.
The Jesus of our conception must conform 100% with the Jesus that God revealed to us in His Word.

How it manifests in the World
The Antichrist spirit also manifests itself in the rest of the unrepentant world: It is the lawless spirit of sin that rejects the cross and glorifies self works. It is the spirit that empowers the "I can do it all" delusion that is at the heart of humanism. It is the spirit that empowers the doctrine of self promotion: The doctrine that we come 1st and that we have a right to be ourselves instead of denying ourselves to know our Maker better.

It is the spirit that promotes the things we can do by relying on our genius instead of relying on God:i.e being a law to ourselves (Gen 3:4-5). It is the spirit that prompts us to do what we like and be ourselves. It is the spirit that promotes the doctrine that we do not need Jesus and that we can save ourselves by awakening our 'christ' (serpent, satanic) nature within. It is the spirit that mystics believe would eventually elevate mankind to their so called "christ conscious"state.

They believe that awakening the kundalini (god consciousness, 'serpent nature') that sleeps (lies dormant) in their souls and in the souls of the rest of humanity is the only way that they can save themselves and the rest of the world i.e they believe that the soul can only be brought to wholeness by activating the dormant serpent nature embedded within it (which it is ignorant of).
Kundalini represents the image of the fallen Adam that lives in every sinner. The serpent made Eve believe that bearing this image was the only way she could be exalted to godhood and that is the same lie that he is going to use to cajole the unrepentant world to obey him and submit to his accursed image today.

-"Everyone knows the serpent is not really dead, but repressed.Barbara Mor

The Anti Christ is the spirit that prompts us to choose the tree of the knowledge of good and evil at the expense of the tree of life and this lawless spirit of rebellion (image of sin, satanic lifeforce) has been "in"side humanity (and the rest of creation ) since the fall of Adam and Eve (they inherited it when they"in"gested the forbidden fruit in Eden and they passed it to "all "their future seed: i.e we all inherited it from them, Read Gen 5:3 ):That is the reason why John stated that it was already in the world, why mystics claim it is already in humanity and only needs to be 'Stirred up' and it is what the Bible refers to when it states in 2 Thess 2:6-7:

"And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.For the mystery of iniquity doth 'already' work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way".(It is called the mystery of iniquity because it is the mysterious force that triggers mankind to sin)

The mystery of iniquity is "already working" the verse above states however, it also states that it was being restrained at the time St Paul was writing. Who do you think restrains (and eventually destroys) the antichrist in Christians? Christ of course.
His word curtails our lawless tendencies. His spirit suppresses the drive to explore the rebellious spirit in us. The law of His Father makes us abandon our self will. But when Christ is taken out of the way, when His words are made irrelevant and are totally abandoned by the church, the antichrist will fully manifest.The Antichrist is suppressed (in varying degrees) in the rest of the unrepentant world by their individuality (called Jiva in Hindu parlance). The Hindus believe that as long as humanity is 'Jiva conscious' they are under an illusion (Maya): The consciousness of their bodies and/or souls & the ignorance of the potential of and connection to the 'universal spirit' that animates their souls.

They also believe that the only way to attain enlightenment and realize the 'truth' is to realize that the distinction between the individual self and the universe is a false dichotomy and that the distinction between consciousness and physical matter, between mind and body, between the ultimate serpent and the individual soul is the result of an unenlightened (ignorant) perspective.

All satanic mystery schools believe that they will eventually succeed in awakening this serpent in themselves and subsequently in the rest of humanity & that once this has been accomplished, a New World Order under the serpents rule would be established: One that is controlled by the inner spark which they have been fooled to think can make them divine.

When this happens, the heights of lawlessness and rebellion would be unleashed on the land and that is the last time that John refers to: The time when man exalts himself over his true Maker, disregards His truth & instead embraces reason, occult knowledge and science. It is during this time the sin of man will fully manifest.We can see from all this that it is the Antichrist spirit that makes us 'anti'christs. In the same way, we become 'Christ'ians when we submit to the Spirit of Christ.

Spirit of Satan

"The serpent is the symbol and prototype of the Universal Savior, who redeems the worlds by giving creation the knowledge of itself and the realization of good and evil." Manly P. Hall, 33 Degree Mason, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

The Antichrist spirit is the spirit of satan that lives in our hearts and deludes us to think that we can only be brought to wholeness by looking inward (Gen 3:4-6).
That is why the Bible says thus of the man of sin: 2 Thess 2 :9-10:

"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. "

2 Thess 2:4-"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.

It is part of the trajectory of human evolution, the canvas of choice before us now as we recognize that we have come to possess the powers that we used to attribute to the gods.barbaramarxhubbard.com

The Antichrist spirit reigns in us when it takes God's place in His Temple: I.e is enthroned in us (we are God's Temple 1:Cor 6:19 ) and works in us to produce all sorts of unrighteous and anti-christian tendencies.

However, when we accept Christ the image of God within and die to the anti christ spirit within us, God would be enthroned in us and will work within our hearts to produce Godly fruit Phil 2:3:

"For it is "God which worketh in you" both to will and to do of his good pleasure."

-You do not need "God" to tell you what your life purpose is.You are your own god.Modern Church of Satan

It is the spirit of our age that rejects God and God's Word, and promotes man and what he can do with all of its power: The purpose of education today is enhancing man's intelligence and welfare; the purpose of science and technology is good life for man and the advancement of his ingenuity, the goal of entertainment is satisfying man's base desires: Hedonism says it all. Because of this, the world is currently crowded with antichrists who hate Christ and His truth and live their lives contrary to His will.

-If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1 John 1:8

The anti christ spirit also makes us feel that we are good enough and that we are free to explore ourselves and the spirit that animates us at all times (denies the need for repentance).
But all true christians know that in order to be reconciled to God, they have to be regenerated by Christ's Spirit. That is why Jesus told the Jews in John 8:44:

 "You are of Your father the devil and the lusts of Your father You would do...."
Those that are born of the flesh (and those who are reborn of (awaken to) the antichrist's spirit) are naturally sinners (antichrists). Those that accept the work of the cross and die to the image of sin that promotes the self and the serpent are naturally righteous: That is why the Bible states in 1 John 3:7-8: 

"Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the 'works of the devil."

The antichrist is not the beast of Revelation 13. The beast of Rev 13 is an antichrist but is not the Antichrist, the false prophet is also not the antichrist. However, he is an antichrist because he negates Christ. The Antichrist is the world's counterfeit Christ, the spirit that promotes the self and the serpent instead of the Savior:

The Word of God tells us that many would be deluded into accepting the antichrist as Christ because of the oneness and acceptance of everyone it would emphasize. However, true Christians will never be deluded because they know that friendship with the world is enmity with God (James 4:4). They know that they have to deny themselves of their evil nature in order to know and be reconciled with the true God (John 12:25)

Destroy, not Awaken
-He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.1 John 3:8
-And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. Rom 16:20
-And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.Gen 3:15
-Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; Heb 2:14

It is clearly evident from the verses above that Jesus did not come to exalt or awaken the image of sin (serpent, satan) in us. He came to bruise and destroy it. It is also evident that He didn't come to reconcile us with the inner serpent. He came to create an enmity between the serpent and His bride (the Church) and between the serpent's seed (satanic image, corrupt nature that we naturally possess) and His bride's seed (The perfected nature, Jesus Righteous image that is 'born' when the Church enthrones Jesus in her heart.) His death on the cross represented the destruction of the image of sin (satan) and his resurrection represented the new life that we experience when we conform to his death and accept His Holy spirit.

-Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in "newness of life."Rom 6:4
-For the death that He died, He "died to sin once for all;" but the life that He lives, "He lives to God".Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.Rom 6:10-11

How to identify the Antichrist and the True Christ in the Church:

1. John 4:5-6:"They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood".

The Bible states in the verse above: They (the Antichrists) are of the world and speak from the world's viewpoint. One distinguishing mark of the Antichrist's system is that it conforms to the principles of the world. It speaks (promotes) the things of the world (things the world respects) It prompts people to seek money not the Holy spirit.
It prompts them to live for self (world doctrine of self enhancement) instead of the Savior. It prompts them to live for now instead of living for eternity. It bases its standards on worldly principles and that is why the world listens to it.
The true church of God preaches the cross.Only the true children of God listen to the message of the cross. They know they have to deny themselves in order to know God. All devotees of the self reject the cross and exalt the image of sin that lives within them over it and that is why they will never listen to the message of the cross: Because it offends their self pride. That is why there is an eternal enmity between the church and the world.

2. Col 2: 16-17:"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

The Antichrist's system prefers to identify with symbol than with reality.e.g.They (those who are conformed to it) make much ado about keeping the sabbath day but they are not ready to partake in God's rest because they advocate their own works (Heb 4).

They prefer putting the symbol of the cross on their buildings to embracing the cross of Christ. They prefer going to the 'church' to being the Church. They prefer celebrating the birth of Christ to allowing Christ to be born and formed in their hearts (Gal 4:19) etc. Christ's true Church is more interested in reality than in symbols.3.Matt 7:21-23:

3." Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity".

The Antichrist's system is more concerned with signs, wonders and 'outer good works' than in producing fruit. Those who are conformed to it are more interested in speaking in tongues, casting out devils, prophesying, raising the dead and doing outer works than in submitting to their Maker and letting Him work through them.
As you can see in the verse above, the people were so surprised when Christ rejected them because they thought that the fact that they showed signs and did 'good works' was an endorsement. But God rejected them.
True Christians are more interested in bearing fruit and obeying their Father. They are more interested in God renewing them on the inside and working through them. They are well aware that obedience to God is better than sacrifice (outer works of piety) That is why Jesus said "by their fruit (not by their signs or their philanthropy) you shall know them".

4.James 4:4:Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Eph 4:13:Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.
Luke 12:51:Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division.
Exo 8:23:"And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be."
-"I am a Christian. I am a student of all religions. And I respect all people and all paths."Will Smith

The Antichrist's system preaches unity (friendship, oneness) with the world. Christ's system preaches division from the world and unity with the church.

5.-I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.Phil 4:13
-Were not the Ethiopians and the Lubims a huge host, with very many chariots and horsemen? yet, because thou didst rely on the LORD, he delivered them into thine hand.2 Chr 16:8
-For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.Psalm 44:6
-Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.Prov 3:5
-Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
-Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.Matt 16:24

The Antichrist's system emphasizes our inner abilities and desires. Christ's system emphasizes Christ's abilities and desires.

6a.But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.Luke 6:24
Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets. Luke 6:26.
The Prophets of the Antichrist are loved by the people. They dine and consult with Presidents, Prime ministers and 'important' personalities. They are chauffeured in the most expensive cars and own palatial homes.

6b.For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Isa 53:2-3
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.Acts 3:6
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.John 15:19.
For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible. 2 Cor 10:10.
....we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.1 Cor 4:13.
And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may enquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.1 Kings 22:8

The Prophets of God are hated by the people. They are accorded no recognition by earthly authorities. They are not attractive to the earthly minded. They are not known by how much money they have but by the offensive but effective (if applied) truth that they preach.

7a.As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.Gal 6:12
For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things. Phil 3:18-19
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 2 Pet 3:3

The Antichrist's 'Church' is persecution and suffering free.

7b.Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.Acts 14:22
For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.Acts 9:16
For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning. Psalm 73:14
Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.2 Tim 3:12

Christ's Church "must" suffer and be persecuted for His sake.

The presumption of being a follower of Christ based on outer good works, rather than the experiential reality of inviting Jesus into our hearts, allowing Him to destroy the rebellious spirit that animates us (By submitting to His Cross) and submitting our souls to His Holy Spirit is make-believe Christianity.
Such Christianity is of Babylon and is a perfect reflection of the Beast which had horns like a lamb but spoke like a dragon (Appearing to be godly on the outside but un-regenerated in the heart:Matt 23:25). True Christians do not try to be like Jesus by their own self righteous efforts. They know their best efforts are like filthy rags. They do the works of Christ when they submit to His authority (I.e when they reject the spirit that empowers their sinful nature and accept His righteous nature by letting His Holy Spirit work in them and through them)
-Now we have received, 'not the spirit of the world', but 'the spirit which is of God'; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.1 Cor 2:12
And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.Acts 5:32

Note:Kundalini is referred to by different names by various mystical groups. Gnostics refer to it as the 'divine spark' that resides in all human beings, the ancient Egyptians referred to it as ka.The Quakers refer to it as the inner light. Shintos refer to it as kami.The urantia book refers to it as the Thought adjuster. Alchemists refer to it as Prima materia while eckankar (& many other mystical groups) refers to it as the god consciousness that we can only realize within.

Also note that it was Eve (the female, soul) that received the forbidden fruit from the serpent (the rebellious spirit) and shared the knowledge with her husband Adam (male, old mind). That is the reason why the 'sleeping' Kundalini is refered to as a feminine power:

I.e It lies dormant in the soul (inside Eve, the recipient of the knowledge i.e the soul is the custodian of the forbidden knowledge) 

Since the fall of man, the old mind (Adam) has been captivated by the deceitful and seductive 'beauty' (potential) that lies dormant in the soul (i.e the so called christ consciousness, philosophers stone that occultists seek) and it is our fascination with the 'beauty' in the soul that makes it very hard for us to return to God because we are captivated by all the things that we can do without Him. 

Unlike the accursed kundalini power, Jesus Christ the wisdom of God (The new man, mind) is not found inside the soul. He is found outside the soul. He is beyond us and we must humbly stand in awe at His glory and submit to Him in order to be saved. Our minds (our carnal understanding, the old man) must not be captivated with the wisdom in the soul because it is an earthly sensual and devilish wisdom ( James 3:15 ) 
That is why God tells the woman that her desire must be to her husband and He would rule over her (Gen 3:16 ): 

Our desire must not be towards the custodian of the sleeping power like Adam's was. We , the carnal man/mind (Adam ) i.e the way we perceive ourselves in this world  i.e as mere bodies) must realize that we are really lost souls in bondage to the devil (women held captive to the thoughts, acts and potential of the inner spirit of satan) who are desperately in need of Jesus Christ (the new man, restored mind ) and who must look to Him  to save us from the accursed spirit embedded within us 

(He saves us by destroying it in our hearts and replenishing our souls with His Spirit) and when we gear our desires towards Christ, die to the inner antichrist and allow him to refill us with His Spirit, the husband of our souls (our minds, awareness) changes from being carnal (the fallen Adam) to being Spiritual (in the image of Jesus Christ: Christ like)

Some of you might be wondering, how can Adam be the carnal mind when the Bible says that God originally made Adam in His own image and likeness. (God is spiritual, not carnal) Adam is the carnal mind made spiritual by the breath (Spirit) of God.

God rebuked Adam for partaking in the fruit offered to him by Eve (the deceived soul) because he chose to disregard the awareness that he had by being at one with God and chose to follow his original instincts : his carnality, the ground (nature) he was originally taken from i.e Only the fallen mind can be fascinated by the wisdom that is dormant in the soul.

You might also be wondering: Why do occultists refer to Eve as the soul when the Bible states the man is the living soul. The awareness of the life in soul and the soul are one the same thing and cannot be separated from each other because the awareness of the soul is directly proportional to the state of the soul i.e A soul that is aware of Jesus Spirit in the soul is in heaven. i.e it has life and that is why Adam was referred to as a living soul A soul that is aware of itself or satan's spirit in the soul is in hell (separated from God) i.e is dead.

The Bible says the 2 shall become one so attempting to separate the awareness of the soul from the soul is equivalent to attempting to separate the genes of a father from his child (the product of both his parents). It is impossible to do that because both the genes of the father and the mother are inseparable from the single unit that they procreated.  

The male and female are 2 different functions/parts fused into one inseparable unit. The woman part of the soul aka Eve could be defined as the emotions. It is that part of us that is devoid of God. It consists of our desires, intellect and our natural way of reasoning. It is the intellect and desire part of us that is tempted by the devil. When we disregard the Word of God and follow our reason, "in"tuition and "in"tellect (notice the emphasis on in), we enthrone the devil.  The man part of the soul aka Adam could be defined as the Mind in general. When this mind is ruled by Jesus Christ i.e aware of Jesus, He controls and covers (i.e makes it ignorant of) the excesses of the emotional part of the soul but when the mind  of Jesus Christ is 'murdered' through disobedience and following the woman i.e the emotions, the mind dies to Christ and is ruled by the emotions (the woman) and the inner serpent that is embedded in the woman (consciousness that empowers a life outside Christ).

The living Adam (the one made alive by the breath of God) refers to the awareness of the soul of the Spirit of Jesus and the dead Adam (the one that God took from the ground) is the dead  awareness that the soul has of itself and the 'serpent Adam'  is the awareness of the soul of the serpent embedded in the soul. (it is also dead because it is separated from God i.e Life)

Meaning of Awareness
Spirit awareness is simply the level of understanding and submission to the power of the spirit within the soul and it is very possible for the Spirit of Christ/ satan to live in an individual without the individual being conscious (or completely conscious) of it which explains why the kundalini is dormant in people.i.e in those who have a carnal awareness.

As the mind (the consciousness) becomes more aware of the spirit that is embedded within the soul, it evolves to become more like the spirit and if it dies to/ is ignorant of the spirit, it remains carnal/earthly. i.e the mind aware of Christ bears the image of Christ, the mind aware of soul bears the image of soul,  the mind aware of satan bears the image of satan and the mind that is ignorant of the soul and the spirit bears the image of the flesh i.e it sees itself as a mere body.

That is the reason why God cursed the ground (carnal awareness, the name Adam comes from the Hebrew word אֲדָמָה which translates to Adamah in Latin which also translates to ground in English) that resulted from the ingestion of the fruit because the carnal (earthly) mind can never produce godly fruit. It can only produce thorns and thistles (weeds, unwanted fruits forbidden by God).

Only the new Adam (the spiritual mind, awareness of God) can produce godly fruit acceptable to God and that is why Jesus calls Himself the Bread of life who we must eat to live. When we eat Jesus (partake of his wisdom), our minds (grounds) evolve to produce fruits (lusts, desires) that are pleasing to God because they conform to his desires.

His curse on the serpent (satanic spirit, life force) that was ingested symbolizes the fact that the serpent can never elevate souls to Heaven or make them produce godly fruit. He only ends up deceiving destroying the souls that he claims to liberate & offer divinity which is why God tells him that he will feed on (devour) dust (souls) all the days of his life (all the time that he is enthroned or lives in the soul) 

Woman made from man:
Some of you might also be wondering why the woman had to be made from the man (Gen 2:21-22) , The man is the dyad oversoul (the man made in God's image i.e the 'man God') that brings the world soul into existence (i.e gives it life or the awareness of God), the same way that the second Adam, Jesus Christ is the dyad oversoul (God made in man's image i.e the God man) that gives all repentant souls life and awareness of God. i.e Adam brought Eve into existence the same way that Christ's quickens His Church and brings them into the awareness of God and enables them to live in/experience His reality/paradise (John 14:6 , John 6:53 )

Just as Adam was the 1st born of God's initial creation (i.e He was created before Eve), Jesus is also the 1st born of God's new creation (Col 1:15 ) because He is the source of their life and awareness and that is why the Bible states that the woman comes from the man (meaning the woman gets her awareness/consciousness from the man.

But because of her fall into sin i.e separation from Spirit, she has to be reconnected with the spirit/awareness that she was banished from by re-inviting it by faith and giving birth to it as her nature i.e making the two become one (Heb 2:11 ) and that is why she is called the woman=womb-man=womb of man i.e the womb of the man.

Separation of the man/God dyad
Adam's ingestion of the forbidden fruit (fall into sin) meant that the man part of the man/god dyad (the carnal awareness that was previously submitted to (at one with) the Spirit of God) separated from the God part of the dyad (God's Spirit) and joined with the rebellious spirit earthly/soul dyad of his wife (The soul with the ingested fruit within) and whenever the carnal awareness is aware of his wife i.e the emotions but ignorant of the spirit embedded in his wife, it remains carnal. i.e the wife is asleep, asleep because her satanic potential is dormant.

Whenever the mind becomes aware of the spirit embedded in the soul i.e the realization of the life hidden in his wife, the man (the mind) begins to realize the potential of the serpent within.  i.e the life of the wife (the serpent) is  gradually 'awakening' and making the mind realize its connection to the serpent and its potential when it connects to it and whenever the rebellious spirit within fully awakens i.e when the kundalini fully awakens, man becomes mystical and understands the hidden mysteries of satan or kaballah. i.e an adept of satan, the rebellious spirit. i.e the wife is fully awake and aware of satan and her connection to his spirit.

After carefully reading the explanations above, it should become evident to the reader that the Bible's account of the creation and fall of man is not merely a literal account of a man, his wife a snake and an apple tree. 

It is a symbolic explanation which seeks to explain to us how the world soul (Eve) was deceived by the rebellious spirit (satan), how the spirit became embedded within the soul and how the world mind (Adam) came about and it can only be understood mystically. i.e by those who are led by the Holy Spirit.

Spirit of Christ.
It should also become evident that the events of Eden affect us all because we all originate from Eve (the mother of all souls) who has the rebellious spirit within (meaning our souls have the same spirit within) and because we are naturally ignorant of the embedded spirit within our souls, we all reflect the ignorant mind state of our fallen Father (the carnal mind, Adam) and are prone to make the same mistake that he made.

Our Origin
We (as individuals) are the individual representation of Adam and Eve. i.e an individual soul and mind with a fragment of the spirit that they ingested embedded within us (inside our our souls) i.e our individual soul, mind and spirit originated from the world soul, world mind and the rebellious world spirit embedded within the world soul and that is why occultists teach that we have a spark of their so called 'god'.
Diagram which occultists often use to illustrate the ignorant state that humanity is in.The egg (i.e 'eggo' = the ego, individualized self) represents their ignorant state. The serpent represents the god of this world. They believe that In order to become enlightened and be set free, humanity must break out of the egg that they sleep in (get rid of their individuality) and connect to the serpent

The Universal symbol of medicine. It is called the rod of Asclepius. Notice that it consists of a single serpent on a pole. The single serpent on the pole represents the sleeping/dormant kundalini power or maya, the illusory and unideal state that occultists hope to break out from by connecting to the universal spirit. Notice that the top of the rod is broken. This is meant to drive home the occult belief that earthly life is broken and incomplete when it is devoid of spirit. It was adopted as a medical symbol in order to reflect the fact that doctors are specialists in saving and enhancing earthly life i.e the sleeping consciousness state.

The Caduceus or the Herald's staff. Notice that it consists of 2 serpents on a single pole. The single pole symbolizes a single entity. Also notice that the serpents on the pole are roled around each other. They symbolize the union of the two diverse forces in nature: spirit and soul (the union brings about the awakened antichrist state) in an individual entity (hence the single pole)

Take note of the wings above the pole. They symbolize the occult belief that people can only become divine when they merge with (awaken to) the satanic spirit embedded in creation . Note that the top of the staff is complete. It symbolizes the 'whole' man, the one who believes he has attained satan's promise of godhood (Gen 3:5 ). 
As a symbolic object, the Caduceus represents Hermes or the roman god Mercury and the reasons why it represents the pagan 'god' mercury are not far fetched: 

Unlike Medical doctors who deal with earthly life, Mercury is 'divine' and so deals with divine life. Mercury was also known as the guide of souls in the underworld: Awakening the sleeping spirit (serpent) in the soul is the guide of the children of satan to the wholeness state that he promised them. Mercury was also known as "the mediator" because he brought peace to the 2 contrary serpents. Awakening and submitting to (making peace with) the satanic spirit is the key to occult 'enlightenment'.

The Caduceus represents the awakened state of the Antichrist and the rod of Aesculapius represents the sleeping state of the antichrist i.e the carnal mind is ruled by ignorant consciousness and the occult initiated mind is ruled by awakened consciousness and that is why 2 Thess 2:6-7 claims that the restrained (sleeping) state and the awakened state are the same spirit (the mystery of iniquity) in different states (sleeping and awake) . 
The Star of life. Internationally, it represents the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and is usually found on ambulances. Note that it also consists of a serpent on a pole. Of course you already know that the serpent represents satan, the life force of the earth. You also know that it represents the life force in its dormant state
because it is a single serpent . However unlike the rod of Asclepius, the top of the staff is not broken.

It is called the 'star of life' because occultists believe that the 'light' (potential) that is hidden inside the dormant (dark) spirit (which is embedded inside the soul ) is the 'pole' star that guides occult initiates to wholeness (the double serpent state) and that is why it is used to represent emergency services i.e the emergence (emegen-cy) of the serpent from its dormant state. Note that ambulances are 'called' during emergencies (Chaos, tragedy, disorder) in order to help alleviate tragedies. i.e restore order.

The calling forth (awakening through occult rites) of the sleeping serpent leads to its 'emergence' (realization) in the consciousness of man and signifies the end of 'ignorance' and 'darkness' (chaos) and the beginning of the journey to establish 'order' (occult enlightenment, fully awakened state) and that is why the rod is not broken at the top. i.e it symbolizes the processes involved in returning to wholeness.

And of course the 6 (six hex sex) sided shape which consists of a straight line 'piercing' an x symbolizes the union of soul and spirit in order to attain occult 'perfection' X = female (soul) l = male (the serpent spirit) The union between the two (which can only happen when the serpent 'emerges'/ is realized) produces the double serpent (awakened) state.
