TRUTH ABOUT THE ANTICHRIST. 3. He will be satan personified just as Christ is God personified. Rev. 13:1-2 says, “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority”. Interestingly, this beast is going to come out of the water. The antichrist is going to come out of the water gate. There are several billions of demons in the sea. The devil hates man because man is the object of God’s love. Satan gets his activities done on earth better through human beings than any other animal. Secondly, he uses one stone to kill two birds in that as he is doing that, he is fighting indirectly against God. Every true child of God must have this knowledge so as to keep the devil at bay. John 14:7-11 says, “If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also, and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you and yet hast thou not known me Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father, and how sayest thou then, shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Very, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Verse 23 says, “Jesus answered and said unto him, if a man love me, he will keep my words and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him”. Many people don’t love God, they only want a God to use. The reason why many argue with the word of God is because they don’t truly love God. But this is the key – loving God and keeping his word. Jesus said he and his Father will come and personify the person just like Jesus the incarnate Son. Jesus was so much in tune with his Father, he said, “my meat is to do the will of him that sent me and to finish his work”. John 4:34. It is either you are a carrier of God or a carrier of some other thing. Everybody is carrying something. It is when people are carrying other things that they begin to doubt the word of God and even get to a point where they begin to doubt the very existence of God. If God is indwelling you, you cannot doubt him. One day, I was watching a televangelist on the television and he said there is nothing like Holy Ghost Fire; he continued from one error to another and when I could no longer take it, I switched off the television. Meanwhile, as he was saying that there is nothing like Holy Ghost Fire, Fire of the Holy Ghost was burning in my hand. Don’t allow anyone who is being carried by a contrary spirit confuse you. Jesus made it categorically clear that “I and my Father are one”. Sometime ago, a man came to see me after attending a programme in the Fellowship and said he observed that we celebrate Jesus a lot, he said Jesus should not be worshipped. He said he has read many books and travelled to several countries. I told him to forget about all the books he has read and took him through the Bible with explanations. There is no doubt that another spirit was carrying him. This is just to buttress the point that the average person you see out there is being carried by something; everybody is being carried by something and it is that same spirit that is carrying you about that will carry you home. When a child of God dies, there should not be an iota of doubt as to where he or she has gone. Please take note that there is nothing like purgatory. The Bible says, “And it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”. Heb. 9:27.
