Antichrists Among Us [video]

How to discern "the spirit of antichrist" operating in our midst (1 John 4:3).

Antichrists Among Us Todd Tomasella

“And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.” Ezekiel 44:23 

There’s no way we could possibly begin to give examples of the false teachings and influences of the “MANY false prophets” who’ve invaded the modern church world. Yet let’s look at an example, comparing what’s being said to Holy Scripture, and we here and now pray in Jesus’ name that He continues to increase His discernment in us. Amen?

“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.” Matthew 24:11

Kris Vallotton AND ALL THE BETHEL DEVILS ARE WOLVES. See if you can discern the error in this following quote:

From Bethel Church, Redding California:

“God is leading us into a metamorphosis, a season of transformation. To fully step into what God has for us, we need to let go of what is no longer serving us and embrace the future God is calling us into. On Sunday, June 13, Kris Vallotton spoke an incredible message about the Church’s season and how God is turning our ashes into our greatness! Your ashes are the seeds of your greatness.”

There will be no metamorphosis, no season of transformation outside of dying and allowing Christ to raise you up. In Romans 12:1-2 we read how the cross, presenting ourselves a living sacrifice unto the LORD precedes divine transformation and so we know the “transformation” wolves like Vallatoon offer are demonic. Like all wolves in sheep’s clothing, Kris Vallotton mentions nothing of the Gospel essential of the crucified life (Luke 9:23-24; 2 Corinthians 4:10-12; Galatians 2:20; 6:14; Colossians 3:3,etc.).

Notice he uses the words “OUR greatness” and “YOUR greatness.” No such words are found in the Bible. According to the record of Holy Scripture, Jesus Christ is “Wonderful” (Isaiah 9:6-7) while without Him we are WICKED and are only made righteous by He alone who is the righteous one – the divine Savior from Heaven “the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.” (1 Timothy 6:15-16; Genesis 6:5, 12; Romans 7:18, 24; Jeremiah 17:9; 2 Corinthians 5:21, etc.) Today’s antichrists preach nothing ever about the blood of Christ’s cross, the daily cross He commanded we take up (crucified life), the essential of repentance and holiness, eternal damnation, judgment to come, faith in God not self, etc. Those are all essential doctrines of the original Gospel which means those not preaching them are preaching “another gospel” and are “accursed.” (Galatians 1:6-9)

SINFUL MAN AND THE CROSS OF CHRIST

Any and every man not crying out to the LORD constantly in repentance for a pure heart, is a fool that believes he’s going to Heaven and not hell. Psalms 51 Repent now. Deny yourself, Take up the cross – live the crucified life. Lay down your life in this world or perish. Mark 9:43-49  

“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” John 15:5

This disciple isn’t sure more beautiful words have ever been spoken, penned, than those below. Here, see what I mean:

“Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.” Romans 3:24-26 

The record of Holy Scripture speaks of “the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” and not in man. How could hopelessly sinful man possibly redeem sinful man? If man could save himself, why would the Father have had to send His only begotten Son? Jesus Christ alone made peace between a holy God and fallen mankind, having redeemed mankind “through the blood of his cross.”

“And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.” Colossians 1:20

Catch this: “anti-christ” simply means “in place of Christ.” So when false teachers, in their messages, their words, are not repeating the biblical truth that man is hopelessly, “desperately wicked”, and instead are elevating sinful man as his own savior, they are putting man in place of Christ. They are factoring Christ out of the only salvation the Father ever provided for sinful man.

In place of” seems to be the essence of antichrist, the working definition. Against also and yet most insidiously, “in place of.” Notice this following passage where we see both the “against” and the “in place of.” Read this closely to discover both:

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth (against) 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 (in place of).” 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

Is this antichrist replacement of Christ for self rare or is it epidemic?

Warning Concerning these Antichrists

“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there MANY ANTICHRISTS; whereby we know that it is the last time … 22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” 1 John 2:18, 22 

Jesus Christ Came in the Flesh to Redeem Fallen Mankind

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth NOT that Jesus Christ 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 already is it in the world.” 1 John 4:1-3 

The original Gospel centers around the blood of Jesus Christ which He had, of necessity, to come in the flesh and die in order to shed that “precious blood”!

“For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Matthew 26:28

Jesus Christ is come in the flesh” – Jesus came in the flesh for a purpose which He perfectly accomplish on the cross and thereafter His burial and resurrection (1 Peter 3:18). This carries with it that no one, no sinner could be redeemed, forgiven outside of the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ who “is come in the flesh” for the mission He accomplished perfectly. He died on the cross, His body was slain and blood shed for the redemption of mankind. This His divine and sinless blood was shed “for the remission of sin” so we could be one with our God. Christ’s “precious blood” alone satisfied the claims of the Father’s perfect justice to redeem mankind (1 Peter 1:18-19).

“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:” 1 Peter 1:18-19

The original Gospel is a BLOOD Gospel. When’s the last time your favorite modern preacher taught on the blood of Christ, without which no one can be saved?

“without shedding of blood is no remission.” Hebrews 9:22

A blood-less gospel is “another gospel”, a false gospel! (Galatians 1:6-9)

All who pose as Christ’s representatives and yet do not teach on the glorious “precious blood of Christ” by which His people are exclusively redeemed, is a wolf in sheep’s clothing (1 Peter 1:18-19). Run!

The Cross Stands at the Center of the Original Gospel

All those who don’t preach the cross of Christ and the one He commanded that we take up are antichrists. Paul says they are “enemies of the cross of Christ.” (Philippians 3:18-19) Listen closely to what they are saying. Take a step back and discern against Holy Writ (Acts 17:10-11).

“And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:10-11

Rightly divide the Word of truth beloved (2 Timothy 2:15). These vile wolves elevate mere sinful men to Christhood – as if man is his own messiah, his own savior. Utter heresy. God says that fallen man is “desperately wicked” and cannot save himself and that He found no one to stand in the gap because a sinner cannot save a sinner – and so He sent His only begotten Son (Ezekiel 22:30).

“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:” 1 Peter 3:18 

Sinful man cannot save himself. If that were the case, God would be a fool for sending “his only begotten Son” to die on a cross for our sins (John 3:16, etc.). Is Christ dead in vain or are these poison peddlers liars? (Galatians 2:21)

“And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.” Ezekiel 22:30

Jesus Christ came on a mission to “save sinners” who were otherwise helpless and hopeless.

“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” 1 Timothy 1:15

Only One was Qualified to Redeem Sinners

“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;” Hebrews 1:1-3

“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.” Hebrews 2:9

“To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation … For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corinthians 5:19, 21
