There is the spirit of Antichrist and the man Antichrist. What is in work today is the spirit of Antichrist not the man Antichrist.
Who is the Antichrist? Antichrist means an antagonist or opponent of Jesus Christ. A person or power opposing, against or in place of Jesus Christ.
Now, we have the spirit of Antichrist in the world.
The spirit of Antichrist
The spirit of Antichrist is that spirit which is against anything Godly. It is opposing Jesus Christ and working to totally wipe out Christianity and Jesus Christ from earth’s surface. This spirit is against the Jews, Israel.
1 John 4:3: And every spirit that confesses 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.
The spirit of the Antichrist perverts, twists or adds to the essential building blocks of Christianity.
