The message this week is titled, Standing Up Against the Spirit of Antichrist. Today we feel the growing influence of the spirit of antichrist spoken of in 1 John 4. Its mission is to intimidate and silence the Truth, but the Spirit of God is rising within the believer to confront and overcome this evil wind blowing across the world. We may think we can do little to hold back the tide of evil in the land – but there is one simple action we can all take to stand up against the dark forces at work.
The Bible describes an epic conflict between good and evil, darkness and light, that continues to affect every human being. Jesus has won the ultimate victory over darkness and evil, but God has chosen to let us in on the conquest by allowing us to take what Christ has done on the cross and apply it to our everyday struggle with evil.
Many Christians do not understand how to apply the victory of Christ – this series will help us see that the key to our victory is the shed blood of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. No enemy from hell can stand against the one-two punch of blood and Spirit.
