I’d bet the farm that you know about the Anti-Christ, but do you know about the Anti-Spirit? All throughout Scripture, Jesus and the Anti-Christ are compared and contrasted. Their similarities include that both are the subject of prophecy, both are foreshadowed by Old Testament characters (e.g. Joseph and Cain), both are revealed at God’s chosen time, and both have a person who directs people to worship them. When it comes to contrasts, Jesus is called the godly Man of sorrows (Is. 53:3) while Anti-Christ is called the man of sin (2 Thess. 2:3); Jesus is the Son of God (Mark 1:1) while Anti-Christ is the son of perdition (2 Thess. 2:3); Jesus comes from the seed of woman (Gen. 3:15), while Anti-Christ comes from the seed of the serpent (Gen. 3:15); Jesus is the Lamb (Is 53:7) while Anti-Christ is the Beast (Rev. 11:7); Jesus is the holy One (Mark 1:24) while Anti-Christ is the wicked one (2 Thess. 2:8); Jesus humbled Himself (Phil. 2:8) while Anti-Christ exalts himself (Dan. 11:36); Jesus is the Good Shepherd (John 10:11) while Anti-Christ is the idol shepherd (Zech. 11:17).  In my opinion, the same holds true for the Holy Spirit and what I call the Anti-Spirit. The latter is what I believe Paul refers to when he says, “And you were dead in your offenses and sins, in which you previously walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience” (Eph. 2:1-2, my emphasis)… (READ MORE)
