How to recognize the Spirit of God and the Spirit of the Antichrist

According to the book of 1 John is pretty plain and simple the way to recognize it. We need to recognize the spirit of God and the spirit of the antichrist so we discern between truth and falsehood.

1 John 4:2-3 (New International Version)

2This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

Back then people didn’t believe Christ was in the flesh since the prophecy talked about Jesus Christ coming in the cloud. It’s written in the Old Testament, which prophecies the 1st coming Christ (Daniel 7:13-14)

In the same way people expect 2nd coming Christ to come in the clouds, but, in the same it happened the 1st time, He would not come in the clouds but in the flesh since cloud means flesh or man. (Proverbs 25:14).

Hebrew 9:28 28so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

He’ll come a second time the same way he came the first time, in the flesh. But the spirit of the Antichrist described in 1 john is the one who denies that God came in the flesh. Christ Ahnsahnghong (2nd coming Christ) came in the flesh according to the bible. He fulfilled all the prophecies (King David, Melchizedeck, Elijah, etc). Let’s not be deceived by the spirit of the Antichrist and believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong. Any questions or concern, don’t hesitate in posting your comment. Thanks!
