Spirit Of Antichrist And Antichrists In The World 8

15

1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. The spirit of antichrist is the spirit of the world and all that is in the world. We must understand that those who have Jesus Christ as their lord and saviour are in the world but are not of the world. The unsaved are in the world and are of the world. One of the things in the world is the pride of LIFE!! This has to do with man's profession after being educated. It is the "I" in man. The pride of position,power,carnal securities,wealth ,riches,influence,and special statuses Satan has given man in exchange for his soul. We must learn where this pride started from and who it started from. It started from Satan!!!! Satan became proud because of the brightness of himself. The illumination alternating from this most beautiful creature of God drove him into a state of pride. The power took control of him instead of him submitting to God,he suddenly wanted to be GOD. THERE FORE,anything borne goal,achievement of man,passion,desire that would not ascribe Glory to God in man but ascribes glory to man is PRIDE. This is because GOD who owns all things he created never controls them even though he is GOD. Satan's pride made him to rebel against the purpose of his creation which is to worship GOD and for God's pleasure. Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. Satan instead wanted to be worshipped as God and also for man who was created in the likeness and image of God to worship him Satan. This was a contrary way of worship and antichrist in nature. We see that they worshipped the creature more than the CREATOR who is blessed forevermore. Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Satan changed the truth of God into a lie before he was cast out from heaven and now on earth to decive man. Satan claims he is God and deserves to be worshipped. Just as Satan tempted Adam and eve into disobeying God and falling into sin to worship him he also came with the same temptation to Jesus Christ. Satan's Temptation vs Jesus Christ. Matthew 4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. Because of Satans pride,he questioned the SONSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST CRAFTINGLY? "IF THOU BE THE SON OF GOD"....... Satan wanted Jesus Christ to turn the work of GOD (stones) into bread(something perishable) Satan knew that of Christ obeyed then he would be able to be GOD because Satan had no power of CREATION as a creature but to change things from the original plan to his would have been easy if Jesus Christ obeyed him. God was looking for someone who would obey him in the flesh!!! Satan was looking for someone who would worship him in the flesh. Jesus Christ rejected the 1st temptation and Satan's offer. Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Since Adam and eve were eating the fruits of other trees and living also by eating the fruit of life but failed to OBEY GODS WORD,it became important that God's word is the ultimate. It was the same word God spoke into existence and Satan was created from the stones of fire. Why would Satan want to turn GODS WORK into something perishable by nullifying the power of GODs words? So Jesus Christ refused Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Stans never gave up and came with his second offer. Matthew 4:5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, It is not clear why Satan had to take him to the pinnacle of the temple(Highest height of God's temple) and then tell him to cast himself down! This shows that Satan wants man to achieve the highest success of vanity so that he too can be cast down from a spiritual hieght with GOD and become a fallen creature as him. Satan wanted Jesus Christ to be on the same fallen level as him by promoting him physically but casting him down spiritually. Jesus Christ rejected Satan's second offer!!!! Satan lied in his third offer by telling Jesus Christ that all the world has been giving to him and all the glories which are also vain. Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; Satan wanted Christ to accept his type of pride of possessions and loose his spiritual possession by falling down as a CREATOR(GOD) AND worshipping him(creature) as GOD himself. Jesus Christ rejected Satans third offer reminding him of his place and who created him and who he must serve ONLY!!!! 4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. TODAY,many christians who are serving their bellies have made Mammon their new God. Some are pursing so many materialistic goals and loosing the kingdom of God totally. They are moving in an anti direction. They fail to honour Jesus Christs words which said Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. The pride of life is the possessions that make one to be proud of which it has no eternal value. 1 Timothy 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. It is unfortunate today how many antichrist speakers called Motivational speakers are encouraging many misled christians to seek earthly things and ambition so people can be proud of them in this vain life. We see how when possessions become too possessive,it generates pride and a loss of eternal life!!! The profit there is the loss of man's soul on exchange for gaining the whole world. The loss of spiritual riches and wealth for physical riches and wealth which would perish with the world. The ownership of those things now wouldn't matter when the world is destroyed by fire
