DOMINION OVER DARKNESS(PART VIII) DOMINION OVER THE ANTICHRIST
In this series, we have spent time on unmasking the antichrist and the purpose of doing this is to demystify the antichrist. The essence of it all is so that you can have dominion over the spirit of the antichrist. You cannot dominate what you have not properly discerned; you cannot properly disarm an enemy until you have discerned him.
Matt. 24:11-13 says, “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved”.
One of the strategies of the devil is deception and if he tries it frontally and fails, then he will come in a very subtle way. The quantum of error emanating from respected pulpits is amazing. A lot of Christians have been deceived into believing the doctrine of eternal security which says once saved, you are saved forever. (It does not matter how you live after.) Matthew 24: 11-13 does not corroborate this assertion. A little error is like a drop of poison that can produce a bottle of poison.
SEVEN VITAL KEYS REQUIRED TO WALK IN DOMINION OVER THE ANTICHRIST
- Decide to fly. Take a decision that you will fly. A great airlift is going to happen before the full manifestation of the antichrist. God’s prescription for dominion over the antichrist is the rapture of the true Church. But even the rapture has become a contentious issue; some people say there will be pre-tribulation, some mid tribulation while others say that there will be post tribulation. The most consistent truth about the rapture in the scriptures is that before the physical manifestation of the antichrist; before he puts on flesh and begins to manifest, the true Church would have been raptured. You must not miss it. Those who will be left behind; those who do not place enough value on their relationship with Jesus will then have to pay with their own blood. Think of the world without the saints and without the Holy Spirit. The rapture will take place by the power of the Holy Ghost. That is why you must not be careless with your faith from today. Many Christians are not ready for the rapture and this is partly because most of the messages emanating from the pulpit today are motivational and earthbound, these messages are not preparing people for the flight. Nobody ever stumbles into heaven by chance. It takes quality decision; you must make up your mind to make it. Don’t gamble with this. Rom. 10:9-11 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed”. Believe, make a habit of believing and keep on confessing him. Never remove your eyes from Jesus; never remove your eyes from the cross. Run away from messages that promote other things above the cross of Christ.
