Spirit of Antichrist

Written following devotional meditations in 1 John 4 and Ephesians 6.

“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 4:3       C.M.

Though I will praise Thee often I
Am weak and do lack might.
I must by Thy grace armor don;
And stand therefore to fight.

This world of spirits will deceive;
These spirits we must test.
Many are they who in the world,
Great falsehoods they profess.

Ev’ry spirit that will deny
That God’s become a Man,
Is not of God and antichrist,
Rejecting God’s sole plan.

The incarnation of God’s Christ
Must never be denied;
To remove this essential truth
Implies Christ had not died.

For Jesus to become a Man
Includes these other truths:
Both fully human and divine,
The Perfect Substitute.

Denying Christ’s incarnate truth
Denies His virgin birth,
His resurrection, heavenly reign,
And return to the earth.

So love each other, and by grace,
Rejoice in Jesus Christ:
Propitiation for our sins
With His life paid the price.
