The Choice before You Today: Greeting anti-Christ?
Jesus teaches in the Bible:
“If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house; and do not give him a greeting.”
2 John 1:10, Page 1910
Many deceivers teach Christian Science, Roman Catholicism, New Age, and similar false teachings at the beach and all over the world. They encourage people to go to hell through teaching their own false gospels. According to the Bible, they are deceivers and anti-Christs (2 John 1:7; Galatians 1:6-10; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
Jesus proclaims in the Bible that believers cannot greet those people who are anti-Christs and deceivers. Some people like to greet those anti-Christs and deceivers and spend time with them every day. JESUS FORBIDS BELIEVERS FROM GREETING ANTI-CHRIST AND SITTING DOWN AND LISTENING TO THEM. UNLESS YOU ARE PREACHING THE GOSPEL TO ANTI-CHRISTS, YOU ARE VIOLATING THE WORD OF GOD. Jesus certainly ate and drank with sinners, but He always did so for the purpose of proclaiming to them the Gospel (Matthew 9:9-13). He never spent time listening to anti-Christ, or just hanging out with anti-Christ. Jesus proclaimed the Gospel to those sinners and then left. If they followed Jesus, He would spend time with them. If those sinners persisted in their evil ways, then Jesus promised they would spend eternity in the lake of fire (Revelation 10:11-15).
Jesus teaches in the Bible:
“for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.”
2 John 1:11, Page 1910
Some people at the beach say they only discuss politics or other matters with anti-Christ. Therefore, those people justify to themselves their decision to spend time with anti-Christ daily. Actually, anti-Christ has deceived them into ignoring the teaching of Jesus in the Bible.
Jesus teaches in the Bible that if you greet anti-Christ, then you participate in the evil of anti-Christ. JESUS IN THE BIBLE FORBIDS EVERY BELIEVER FROM GREETING ANTI-CHRIST.
If you claim to be a believer, and greet anti-Christ or spend time with anti-Christ (and you are not sharing the Gospel with anti-Christ), then you participate in the deeds of anti-Christ. If you greet the people who participate in the deeds of anti-Christ, then realize that you too are now deceived and participating in the deeds of anti-Christ. So, each believer has solemn choices to make today before God.
WILL YOU GREET ANTI-CHRIST TODAY?
WILL YOU PARTICIPATE IN THE DEEDS OF ANTI-CHRIST TODAY?
WILL YOU GREET THOSE WHO PARTICIPATE IN THE DEEDS OF ANTI-CHRIST TODAY?
If you answer “yes” to any of those questions, please understand that Jesus in the Bible forbids believers from greeting you, spending time with you, or eating with you. Believers in Christ must follow the teachings of Christ as provided in 2 John 1:1-13. If you love Jesus, keep His commandments. If you love the people deceived by anti-Christ, then do not greet them or speak to them, so that they may know they have departed from the commandments of Christ.
“And this is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you should walk in it.”
2 John 1:6, Page 1910
I have heard people say that the “clergy” does not agree that 2 John means believers separate from any one. Jesus taught against any notion of “clergy,” because all believers are holy and royal priests before God (2 Peter 2:4-13) and every believer has an anointing from God that teaches believers all things (1 John 3:27). Jesus also prohibited the use of all titles like “Leader,” “Rabbi,” “Teacher,” and by implication “Bishop,” “Pastor,” or “Clergy” (Matthew 23:1-12; Luke 22:23-27). The Bible alone guides us and we must never rely upon the teaching of people who deny Christ when they use titles like “Bishop,” “Pastor,” “Rabbi,” “Apostle,” “Prophet,” or “Teacher.”
The loving response to people who have been deceived by anti-Christ and spend time greeting anti-Christ and hanging out with anti-Christ is to separate from them. Let them know that you believe the Bible, the Word of God. Jesus commanded His children to reject anti-Christ and never greet anti-Christ. If you love Jesus, keep His commandments.
MAY WE OBEY JESUS AND SEPARATE FROM ANTI-CHRIST AND THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN DECEIVED INTO PARTICIPATING IN THE EVILS OF ANTI-CHRIST.
