TOPIC: The Anti-Christ


OPENING PRAYER: Father, please save me from the period of the end time events. Save me from the Anti-Christ. (Scroll down for RCCG Sunday School 9 August 2020 HYMN)


MEMORY VERSE: “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


BIBLE PASSAGE: Revelation 13:1-9 KJV (RCCG Sunday School TEACHER’s Manual 9 August 2020)


1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.


2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.


3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.


4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?


5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.


6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.


7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.


8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.


9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.


INTRODUCTION:


“Anti-Christ” means opposition to Christ. The mission and purpose of the anti-Christ is to put himself in the place of Christ. He, therefore, opposes the Father and the Son (1 John 2:22; 4:3). He also denies that Jesus came in the flesh (2 John 1:7). There have been many antichrists (1 John 2:18), but there is also coming “the antichrist”. In the end time, a man will arise to oppose Christ and His followers more than anyone else in history. Likely claiming to be the true messiah, the antichrists will seek world domination and will attempt to destroy all “careless” followers of Jesus Christ and the nation of Israel during the period of the great tribulation. The world is drifting at a fast lane towards the appearance of antichrist in full force. The antichrist will be revealed at the beginning of the period of the great tribulation – after the rapture. 2 Thess. 2:3-4.


TEXT REVIEW: Revelation 13:1-9.
There could not have been a better description of the antichrist than what Apostle John saw in his revelation. He said, “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” Rev. 13:1


This blasphemous beast has the nature of a leopard, bear and lion. These three animals have been long age enemies of the sheep and lamb. Like the mighty Goliath, who could make war against him? 1 Sam. 17: 34-36, Rev. 13:2-4. But glory be to God, David killed both the bear and the lion and cut off the head of the leopard (Goliath). We have a Captain in the Son of Jesse and a Champion in the Root of Jesse, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. 1 Sam. 17:37; Romans 15:12
