The Seed of Antichrist or the Seed of Christ? Part 1
Whose seed are we allowing to grow and mature in us...The seed of Antichrist or the seed of Christ?
Who is it that germinates the seed of Antichrist...The sinner or the saint?
Who is it that germinates the Seed of Christ...The Law keepers or Grace acceptors?
We are told to let the...tares and the chaff...those that claim to be believers, act like believers and call themselves believers grow among the true believers and God will do the separating of the false from the true in His timing? Why? Because no matter how spiritual we are, how bible knowledgable we are, what religious position we officiate in, how much we fast and pray or how righteous we think we are, we do not know the heart and mind of man...ONLY GOD KNOWS...He is the only one that can do the separation correctly!
The seed of the Antichrist operating through "sinners" is not the main opposition to the Gospel of God's Love and Grace! It is the seed of Antichrist operating in the saint that has deceived the un-renewed mind of the saint, into believing that it is the seed of Antichrist is the Seed of Christ and they spread the Gospel of Antichrist as if it were the Gospel of Christ...DECEIVING MANY!
Adam was created with the seed of Christ in Him which allowed him to interact and commune with God. When he gave in to the temptation of the Serpent, the seed of Antichrist was planted in him, now he was the possessor of both seeds. At this point he stops depending solely on God by eating from the "Tree of Life"...now...he changes his diet and eats from the "Tree of Good and Evil" determining what is good and evil as for himself as per the Adamic nature.
People are NOT born sinners separated from God because of something known as original sin because of Adam, rather because of Adam, people are born with two seeds in them...the Seed of Christ and the seed of Antichrist. The seed of Antichrist is what Satan has duped religious people to believe that is the seed of Christ, cultivate and nurture that seed to mature and be accepted as the Seed of Christ, and the majority of Christendom has devoured the lie and are sharing the Gospel of Antichrist as the Gospel of Christ and have deceived millions and millions of God's people into believing the lie.
The seed of the Antichrist produces the Adamic (carnal) life...the fallen human nature within every human being. The Seed of Christ that is also in every human being is the nature of God within us. It depends on which seed we feed, cultivate and nourish as to whose nature we exhibit in our daily living. Many people are exhibiting the nature of Antichrist, thinking they are exhibiting the nature of Christ and claiming it is the true Gospel.
The great hinderance to the Gospel of God's Grace is not the Antichrist spirit in sinners, sinners are not proposing to be Christlike...it is the Antichrist spirit in saints resembling Christ preaching religion as the Gospel and deceiving many! When believers operate in their natural Adamic nature they are maturing the seed of Antichrist!
"And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel" (Gen. 3:14-15).
The seed of the serpent produces the fallen human consciousness which is separated from God. When Adam was created and God breathed His life into him, he was only conscious of God’s life flowing within him. He was the image and expression of God on the earth. When he was lowered into the flesh realm, he felt separated from God and hid himself and became conscious of the Antichrist spirit within him. Notice that God did not forsake or hide from him, he hid from God because of the Antichrist spirit in him and his ability now to determining good from evil.
After the Fall, it is said in Genesis 5:3, "And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth." So all of us are born into this world in the likeness and image of Adam, the Antichrist spirit within us along with the Spirit of Christ within us. I know this will not be a popular teaching for some, but Scripture bears this out. For instance, when Jesus was telling His disciples He was going to the Cross, Peter began to rebuke him, and Jesus said, "Get behind me, Satan!" He said, "You do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men" (Mark 8:32-33). This Scripture shows that whenever we get into the natural mind and thinking, we are functioning in the the spirit of Antichrist.
The seed of the serpent grows in the natural mind. Now this is what throws religious believer for a loop, this Antichrist seed produces a life that is both GOOD and EVIL. Remember the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil is one and the same tree! Living by the knowledge of good and evil is what keeps you alienated and separated from God in your consciousness and prevents the Seed of Christ from maturing and becoming the dominated factor in our living. The seed of the serpent is growing in the consciousness of the masses of this world, both Christian and non-Christian choking the Seed of Christ. This is why the Apostle Paul said, "For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God" (Rom. 8:6-8). They that live according to the natural mind are living according to the flesh. You cannot please God, no matter how good you make your flesh. We must be renewed in the spirit of our mind and live according to the Spirit.
Paul also said, "Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh), dwelleth no good thing. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members" (Rom. 7:17-18,23).
It is not the sinner that is the problem with bringing the atmosphere of heaven to earth...instead it is the saint that exhibits the seed of Antichrist as the Seed of Christ!
The seed of Antichrist is one with our carnal nature. As long as we feed the Carnal life within us we will never overcome the flesh to or understand the Grace of God in the work of redemption. The more we try to live according to our knowledge of good and evil...the Law and Religion...the more we become separated in our consciousness from God. We must learn not to nourish the seed of Antichrist and turn from the carnal consciousness to the Spirit of Christ and Christ consciousness within us. This turning to Christ consciousness from carnal consciousness is the repentance that brings salvation to the already regenerative Spirit of Christ implanted within us at birth.
Salvation does not come from repeating a Bible-less "sinner's prayer" but, by turning ourselves over to Christ's care! Turning from the feeding of the Antichrist spirit to nurturing the Spirit of Christ! Forsaking the religious spirits of Religion and giving ourselves wholly and solely to Christ!
