Currently a lot of speculation rages around the concept of a future antichrist. To many people it has become an obsession to figure out exactly who the antichrist is and where he will appear. But if we take John seriously, the whole subject of the antichrist is broader than that. The danger of the antichrist is broader than that. The danger of the antichrist does not just threaten people at one particular time only. Instead, there is a continual danger that we might be deceived and particiapte in the spirit of the antichrist.
In other words, it is vital what we believe and teach, not necessarily in a mere abstract and theoretical way, but in relationship to our central affirmation that Jesus Christ is our Savior. Many forces and powers in the world may attempt to lure us away from our faith in Jesus Christ. We must be continually on guard. As the book of Revelation shows us, Satan can work through individuals as well as religious institutions and political entities to erase our commitment to Christ. What a blessing it is to remember that the One who is in us is greater than the one who is in the world!
