The Seed of Antichrist or the Seed of Christ? Part 2
The seed of Antichrist produces another gospel that is no Gospel at all, and the majority of Christendom has fallen for the deception and is preaching that other gospel as the gospel of Christ.
The seed of Antichrist produces the carnal human nature, which is the work of Satan.
Antichrist means one who is against Christ. The word is Strong’s #500 - (an-tee'-khris-tos); from 473 and 5547; an opponent of the Messiah.
"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. 8:7-8).
"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" (1 Cor. 2:14). Now here is the thing...This is not so much referring to sinners who live by their carnal nature as it refers to saints living and operating through their fleshly nature.
The natural man operating from his carnal influenced mind is a product of the seed of Antichrist that infatuates our conscious and we lower ourselves to operate in fleshly realm. This Antichrist spirit-flesh-life is against the Seed of Christ Spirit life in us. The Antichrist is the self-life of the natural man with his carnal mind sits in the temple of God (which temple you are), declaring himself to be God. Many have missed this, not realizing that the Antichrist is growing in human nature, a product of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and stands in opposition to God.
"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time" (1 John 2:18). "And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world" (1 John 4:3). "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist" (2 John 1:77).
The seed of Antichrist produces the gospel of works, the gospel of do's and don'ts, the religious gospel that is "another gospel".
The Seed of Christ produces His nature in us which produces the Gospel of Christ...The Gospel of Grace.
A seed of wheat contains everything that is needed to reproduce in the wheat kingdom. The seed of wheat is "pre-programmed", to bring forth the wheat kingdom. The seed has a program, like a computer, and in the seed is the program to reproduce the wheat kingdom. You can take a seed of wheat and plant it into the ground, and then you can take manual on wheat farming and try to teach it how to grow.
This is what the seed of Antichrist has empowered Christendom to for the past 2,000 years. We get people saved...the Seed of God begins regenerate on the inside of them...and then we take out the go-be-Book, and we begin to teach the seed in the heart how to grow. For instance, we tell it that it has to go stop doing this and that, it has to clean up its life, it has to attend Sunday-go-meetings, it has to pay tithes, it has to join a denominated church, etc.. And so we produce multitudes of people with itching ears, ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth, because the truth is not in all the intellectual understanding and knowledge that denominations puts one through. All the teaching you need is to have a basic understanding of the basic principles of God and His Kingdom, and then seek Him instead of seeking the next religious high from Religion's gospel.
Sow the seed in the heart of man and then let it drink water (Jesus said, "You are clean through the water of Word that I have spoken unto you") and the friction of testings causes heat and produces pressure the shell of the outer man. The heat and the pain and the pressure of everything you are going through in this life breaks the shell of the outer man, and the Seed of Christ begins to grow and mature.
Religion can teach me about how I am supposed to act, but if the Seed of Christ in me never grows because of religious teaching, I will never, in reality, be able to walk in all of the truths of Grace. But if the Seed is watered, if the Seed is nourished, and if I understand that the new covenant God made is with the Seed and not with Religion, then I will grow to maturity. "And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy Seed, which is Christ" (Gal. 3:29,16).
God’s Promise To the Seed
It is of utmost importance to understand the covenant and its workings in the Community of the Redeemed for the Community of Humanity in the earth. Although God gave Abraham a covenant, the covenant was not with Abraham. Although God gave the people this side of the cross a new and better covenant, the covenant was not with us the people...the covenant was with the Seed, Christ (Gal. 3:16), and that Seed is in you and makes you a beneficiary of the covenant. So the Adam life we inherited, our natural character and makeup, the fallen being that we are, has no covenant with God. We are guaranteed that we as Adam will never under any circumstances be able to enter into the Kingdom of God.
It is impossible for Adam to enter into the Kingdom. Flesh and blood cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. Adam, the fallen nature, is simply the shell of the seed that holds people in captivity and presses down, due to blindness and religious tradition, and subdues the very life and substance of God that is within us. So what we need is not rules and regulations, what we need is not denominated seminarians telling us that now we are saved we need to keep the Law or religious traditions. What we need is water from the Living Word. And how do we get water? We get water by God coming to us bringing the bread of His Word and the wine of His enjoyment. It is from having a personal relationship with God. But the Seed of Christ is in us...Jesus...is who the covenant was made with. It is made with us in the sense that Christ is in us.
We must know that you have the regenerated Seed within us. Do not settle for just the knowledge of regeneration. We must experience the quickening power of God. Our spirit will bear witness with His Spirit that we are a child of God.
Don’t think that because you have gone to an altar at the bidding of a preacher and said the "sinner's prayer" that everything is OK. You were reconciled with God at the cross. Have you been regenerated, have you gained salvation since you were reconciled? Have you experienced the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? I can assure you that for the majority of people in religion, if they have experienced God, religion has shut it down, and they are no longer experiencing Him, because they are listening to the traditions of the elders and the traditions of our forefathers. And they are not producing Seed for the Kingdom, they may be producing Baptist seed...Pentecostal seed...Lutheran seed and so on. They are producing seed after their own kind, but God produces Seed after His own kind. So for God to work this in you, you must understand that God doesn’t have anything for you (your carnal man) or you can do nothing for God for the Seed of Christ to mature and grow.
There is no hope for the Adamic nature, in this life or the next in escaping the death our flesh. And even Paul said that the promise was to the Seed. How can you be a failure? You have the Seed of God in you. God made a covenant with that Seed, and that covenant is, "I will never leave you or forsake you." God will never, ever give up on people, He will see you through you to fully manifesting His glory. Do you know what God’s glory is? It is His nature. But you cannot manifest the glory of God through Adam. The glory of God comes through Christ. Hebrews 1:3 tells us that Christ was the brightness and the express image of the glory of God, which simply means that Christ, as Paul says, was the embodiment of God. Jesus said to His disciples, "Have you seen me? Then you have seen the Father."
Which seed is manifested in your life...the seed of Antichrist or the Seed of Christ?
