Hi there,

So this is just a short message about the power of resisting the Devil: though he is tempted with the mark (of the anti-Christ), yet if we resist him (to the end) he will not take it. This is why it is important that those who are chosen, take a stand against the mark (of the anti-Christ). If we merely tolerated the mark, the Devil would enter into temptation that he could not resist. And this is the power of it, if the Devil can not succumb to temptation, ultimately neither can the anti-Christ - though for many it will be almost too late (being in the grave, or too weak of flesh, with the mark). I want you to be encouraged in this, our resistance to the Devil will result in a strength the world can see and trust. It will convert the world, from it's old way, to one that the Lord can take pleasure in receiving. It may be that the world will suffer from sin, along the way, but because of our example in Christ, it will not easily and lightly stay that way.

A world that starts to forgive, is a world that can be greatly saved (selah)

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever should believe in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life - John 3:16

I hope this encourages you, if not to lay down your life before the end, then to pray for those that do (shalom).

Satan (the devil) is the Tempter. Not the tempted one. He will use the Antichrist to bring souls to damnation. But the Antichrist cannot take total control of the world and demand that his Mark be taken until and unless the Church and the Holy Spirit are "taken out of the way". Then there will be very few who will resist Satan and the Antichrist, but as of now this is a non-issue.

Uh... Satan is... 'The' Antichrist they had already heard shall come (1 John 2:18).

Apostle John pointed to two "antichrist" ideas, the first one is about a singular Antichrist the brethren had already heard shall come (because Jesus gave that warning in John 14).

The second "antichrist" idea was with the "many antichrists", pointing to The Antichrist's servants, or workers that are already here.

The word antichrist is made up of 2 Greek words, anti which can mean 'instead of', or 'in place of', and christos which is Greek for singular Christ. The direct translation means a singular 'in place of Christ'. That is the warning Jesus and His Apostles gave about the coming false one for the end of this world, just prior to Jesus' return. It is about a false-Christ that is coming to PLAY Lord Jesus (and thus GOD), and deceive the whole world (except Christ's very elect).

Those who do not know the above are already in danger of falling away to the false-Christ, because The Antichrist is to come first prior to Lord Jesus' coming.
