12. He Is Antichrist That Denieth The Father And The Son (1 John 2:22)
He Is Antichrist, That Denieth The Father And The Son
Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning.
If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you,
ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
(1 John 2:24)
And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
(1 John 2:25)
1 John 2:22-23 (KJV)
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
Note: To deny the existence of both God and Jesus (Father and Son respectively), is “anti” (against) Christ. These “titles”, Father and Son, reflect the type of “relationship” God had with Christ (Ro 8:14), not in the sense of Jesus (the Son) literally being the physical (or genetic ) offspring of God the Father (Ga 4:4-7; Heb 1:5 ), otherwise that would reflect the existence of multiple gods, which is contrary to scripture (Deuteronomy 4:35, 39, 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-6, 18, 22; Ephesians 4:6). This is further supported in verse 23; If you deny Jesus, you have not denied God the Father. But to acknowledge the existence of the “Son” by implication we acknowledge the Father also because to be a Son implies that a Father first existed.
John 5:19-23 (KJV)
Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. 21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. 22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: 23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
1 John 4:1-3 (KJV)
1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 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.
Matt 4:3-4 (KJV)
And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Matt 4:10 (KJV)
Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Jesus answers the lawyer as to which is the first and greatest commandment
Matt 22:34-40 (KJV)
But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. 35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Mark 12:29 (KJV)
And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
