Kathleen Norris statement from Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of Faith
“”Each one of us act as an Antichrist whenever we hear the gospel and don’t do it”
1 John 4:3
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.
2. Antichrist is a False Christ
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.A General Definition
3. Antichrist is in Opposition to Christ
Antichrist is against, is opposed to, Jesus Christ.
In opposition to God's Christ. Against Christ Personally Against Christ's Church; Against Christ's Word, Holy Scripture.
He will literally be the Opposite of Christ
Antichrist is opposed to God Himself.
So, although the Antichrist will leave the impression that his motivating force is love, concern for humanity, and pity for the oppressed, what drives Antichrist is not love but hatred.
The one motivating force in his life is opposition to Jesus Christ, opposition to all that He stands for, and to all that stand for Him.
18 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.
1 John 2:22
22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
2 John 1:7
7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
4. Antichrist is a Substitute For Christ
The name Antichrist also indicates substitution.
Antichrist opposes Jesus in order to supplant Him, to take His place as Christ.
Although the English language does not often use the prefix "anti" to mean substitution, it is a common use in the Greek language.
2 Thessalonians 2 points out how Antichrist comes as an impostor of the Christ from God, and how there is a striking outward similarity between Antichrist and Christ.A General Definition Continued
