The Spirit of Anti-Christ

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us. (1 John 2:18-19)

Psalm 114

When Israel came out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of foreign tongue, Judah became God’s sanctuary, Israel his dominion. The sea looked and fled, the Jordan turned back; the mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs. Why was it, O sea, that you fled, O Jordan, that you turned back, you mountains, that you skipped like rams, you hills, like lambs? Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, who turned the rock into a pool, the hard rock into springs of water.

Psalm 112

Praise the LORD. Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who finds great delight in his commands. His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.

Psalm 109

O God, whom I praise, do not remain silent, for wicked and deceitful men have opened their mouths against me; they have spoken against me with lying tongues. With words of hatred they surround me; they attack me without cause. In return for my friendship they accuse me, but I am a man of prayer. They repay me evil for good, and hatred for my friendship.

Confused

Q. I was reading the admonitions in the Bible to avoid believers who are sexually immoral, or who regularly eat or drink to excess, practice idolatry or greed, are swindlers, foul mouthed, gossipers, or verbally abusive (1 Cor 5:11, Ephe 4:29). In this way we help them see that such behavior is sin.  I’m very confused by this passage.

A Bad Example Of A Christian?

Q. I was such a bad example of a Christian when I first asked Him to save me, and lived in immorality for 5 years. Although I have fully repented and been faithfully married for decades, and am fully committed to the Lord and careful about my walk, I still worry about the passages in Scripture that say that the unrighteous will not go to heaven. What would you say to people who were washed as I Cor. 6:11 says, but who fell into sin again?

The Bema Seat Judgment

Psalm 101

I will sing of your love and justice; to you, O LORD, I will sing praise.  I will be careful to lead a blameless life— when will you come to me? I will walk in my house with blameless heart. I will set before my eyes no vile thing. The deeds of faithless men I hate; they will not cling to me.

The Full Armor Of God

Q. I have just recently come back to the Lord after being back slidden for approximately 15 years. Now I’m so hungry for the Lord, for His word, and for the fellowship of other Christians, so the Lord guided me to a church family where I can be filled, and for all His blessings, I’m very thankful, especially for His wonderful grace.

In the meantime, I struggle almost every single day, with my emotions, with doubt, feelings of unworthiness, trying to live out my faith by loving and living with unsaved family members, plus financial struggles – is this normal in the Christian walk, to have these kinds of battles? If so, according to Ephesians chapter 6, we are to be strong in the Lord….etc. and put on various pieces of spiritual armor. How do we do this, and is this done through prayer???? I need lots of help, and would like some answers.

Psalm 99

The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake. Great is the LORD in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations. Let them praise your great and awesome name— he is holy. The King is mighty, he loves justice— you have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right. Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.
