1 John 2:22 Antichrist
1 john 2:22 Antichrist
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.
Literally, the liar, he is the epitone of a lying deceiver who claims to represent Christianity,but who accords Jesus Christ less than His full due as Savior and coequal partner with the Father. These should be sobering words for modern understandings of religion and Christianity which deny Christ His scriptural status by making Him less than fully devine.
The term antichrist refers to anyone usurping the place of Christ or opposing Christ . But the title of the Antichrist identifies a person who emerges during the Great Tribulation to lead Satan's strategy on earth. The term is used five times in the New Testament and only by John, although the Antichrist of the Great Tribulation is identified by many other names and titles in Scripture: "that wicked" (2 Thess 2:8);"the son of perdition"(2 Thess 2:3);"the willful king"(Dan 11:36). He is chiefly depicted in the Scriptures as an immensely powerful political leader. he apparently leads the revived Roman Empire,but will not be revealed until after the Rapture.
In the past,overzealous teachers of prophecy have identified several principal world leaders with the Antichrist. Christians should not only be aware of this tendency and avoid it,they should also recognize that the spirit of the antichrist is already at work in this world.
