(Excerpt from the message “ANTICHRIST RISING” by Keith Fletcher)
SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST AT WORK
1 John 4:3 says that the spirit of Antichrist is even now at work in the world, meaning then during the day that scripture was written, and now during this end time spirit of Antichrist recruitment.
Romans 1:18 – 32 Paul describes the corrupted spiritual condition of the Roman Empire. John clearly taught us that Rome was a political agent of the Spirit of Antichrist. From these writings, we can conclude that the Apostle Paul described the social deterioration of the spirit of Antichrist.
Correlating Romans 1:18-32 with 2nd Timothy 3:1-5 paints a picture of the deterioration then, but describes the final expression of the rise of the Antichrist and what the world looks like in its final form.
Through time the spirit of Antichrist has used humanity to advance its agenda. Men driven by unseen to the natural eye forces manipulated by a dark sinister world bent on world domination strains with each evil step through time to reach the place where all of the wickedness from the pits of hell can finally spew out all over this world unrestrained!
We see the effects of this spirit of darkness all around us as it advances its kingdom in this earth gaining momentum with each passing humanistic compromise.
We have now reached a place in time that the world openly rebels against God. This spirit of this age works overtime in every part of our world, bombarding us from every direction.
1 Timothy 4:1 tells us that during the end time, people will depart from their faith and would give themselves over to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. We live experiencing this fulfillment of scripture! Sin and issues that use to disgust us no longer affects us. We are desynthesized, numb, and indifferent.
Within the so called secular definition of Christianity great apostasy occurs carrying out the Antichrist agenda and role playing the part of “instead of Christ” definition of Antichrist.
Mainline religion’s now champion same-sex marriage, practicing homosexual clergymen and women, and open denial of the inspiration of Scripture.
Sin is no longer sin. The bible has been justified down to a watery substance of no value, people do what they want, and live anyway their lustful flesh takes them!
Pedophile priest scandals run rampant and are covered up and at the same time the Roman Catholic Church is poised politically to once again be a force in the world, thus we recognize Rome with both ecclesiastical and political power as the bible foretells!
Leviticus 18:22, 1 Kings 14:24, 1 Corinthians 6:9, Romans 1:27
Mankind got itself into trouble building the tower of Babel into the heavens to rise themselves to the level of God. Today, once again, man attempts to enlarge themselves above God with their own self-justification.
Throughout time up until a few years ago, homosexuality was considered an abomination, not tolerated, and everyone that lived in the sin, lived in the closet! Today, it is flamboyantly exercised openly throughout the world spurred on by the spirit of this age.
Regardless of what your opinions is or mine, the bible says it is an abomination, and scripture teaches those with unrepentant sin will have their part in hellfire and brimstone.
We have to stop tolerating the tolerance! Sadly, we have reached a point that it has to be explained what tolerated sin is, and why it must not be accepted!
Hells agenda coupled with homosexuality perverts the human sexual orientation, identity and behavior thus causing personal confusion, which is the spirit of confusion. It redefines morality and sin to be an open minded concept free from biblical input. The gay lifestyle is and has been promoted through the medium of movie, TV, and entertainment
The spirit of Antichrist, introduces children to homosexuality early so they will accept the lifestyle. It attacks the male and female fundamental creation of God. It breaks down the family unit ordained and created by God, breaking down the very foundation of God’s creation.
The antichrist will not regard the desire of women.
The antichrist is opposite of God or instead of God. Whatever God is, has created, and stands for, the antichrist and spirit of antichrist is exact opposite.
The problem with Christianity today, it has bought the lie from hell of acceptance, has tolerated that it is just an alternative lifestyle. Many Apostolics have turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to this sin adhering to world philosophy “let them choose how they want to live, and I will choose how I want to live.” That philosophy would be ok if the spirit of Antichrist was satisfied with influencing just a few people. The problem is, as is very apparent; it wants to consume the world!
This minority of society has such a loud voice it has forced the world to tolerate the issue! That within itself speaks volumes of its messed up agenda powered by demonic forces!
Scripture says to completely shun evilness. We cannot tolerate the tolerance!
During this end time hour, we have got to be connected or we will be blown away as the chaff sifted in the wind! Anything loose is not standing! The plan is to utterly destroy Christian thinking, and for Christianity to tolerate homosexuality perverting the church!
It may be old school and old time, but it’s time for churches to preach and teach against it. The intimidation has got to end, and we are the ones that have to end it. Teach and preach against it while we can, we are not far away from being prosecuted for doing so!
Goliath would never have been stopped if there hadn’t been a David that had not stood up against the intimidation of an already defeated foe!
Somebody has to believe the word of God… that sin is sin and it is an abomination We better, because this spirit is after our kids, it’s after our teenagers, its after young people to accept this abomination that the Lord hates!
Hate the individual… absolutely not… but despise the sin!
Isaiah 59:3, 7
Another important part of the agenda is abortion. I do not condemn the one that has made such a grave mistake; I do understand that God forgives! Neither do I condone abortion!
This is a domino effect of one sin stacking up on top of each other, and one can only imagine the distress it causes! It is a tragic trap of the enemy! It is Antichrist spirit of this age at maximum strength!
God strictly warns His people against shedding innocent blood. An unborn child is among the most innocent of all beings. Google abortion and tell me after looking at the pictures, you see God anywhere in abortion!
Abortion is “instead of Christ.” Leaders around the world openly promote agenda’s in direct contradiction to the word of God! The immoral things that years ago appalled, that presidents and world leaders once could not get away with is now tolerated, even religion shamelessly turns their eyes and ignores its own knowledge of sin within political leadership as well as within its own organization.
Abortion sheds innocent blood, and Jesus said of anyone hurting a child, “it would be better for a millstone to be tied around their neck and for them to be cast into the sea than for harm to be caused a little one.”
Yes, there is forgiveness, but nation’s leaders aren’t asking forgiveness, they are promoting and pushing the abortion agenda! The antichrist spirit wreaks havoc with abortion because it goes so strongly against the laws of God.
The Muslim population in the UK has doubled since 2001. Europe is having major financial challenges. China and Japan are faced with issues. North Korea wants to nuke everybody.
America is in such a downward spiraled nosedive, that pulling up and out of it will take an absolute supernatural miracle. Nations everywhere are in tremendous turmoil!
Before Pope Benedict retired he called for a one world financial entity, the newly elected Pope Francis has picked up the issue and is calling for a resolving of money issues globally with a global “fix” in place.
The returning political strength of Rome was in the limelight recently with the German Chancellor Merkel meeting with Pope Francis for political purpose facing her coming up election challenge.
The Middle East is a lit powder keg escalating to eruption stage at any time.
Global puzzle pieces fit into place! The world lines up with tribulation conditions ready to explode into action at any moment!
The spirit of Antichrist has gained momentum and is funneling everything toward the event of all events, beginning with a One World Government.
People need to get ready, Jesus is coming back!
We are talking about the spirit of Antichrist agenda, what has and is taking place to condition the world for a satanically possessed leader to be powered up, and given control of the world.
It’s not just one thing that will do it, but its many factions that funnel down so that demonic powers can take complete control; humanity in their desynthesized state of numbness has given evilness the authority and dominion to do so!
The Antichrist is not going to accidentally pop up on the scene and overwhelm humanity. The spirit of Antichrist is working, setting up his kingdom, fore-running, laying the ground work, and conditioning hearts!
When this man of sin appears, he will be publicly revealed to a world that has already been prepared for his appearance, to hearts his spirit already possesses! When the Antichrist appears, even former Christians will welcome him, because their hearts will be of kindred spirit.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 tells us the mystery of iniquity already works.
The Antichrist spirit is invading the hearts of many apostate Christians. They are being absolutely possessed of evil. How you ask? Why would Christians, even cold hearted, ever turn to the Antichrist? It is because they are like minded with him! John writes:
1 John 2:15 (KJV)
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
The risk of becoming cold in our relationship with Christ John warns is that those loving the things of the world have opened themselves to the spirit of antichrist. John is saying “you know these are the last days – too many individuals are full of the self-centered covetous antichrist spirit. He’s warning; don’t fall in the trap that the antichrist has sprung conditioning the world for its demonic leader’s debut and lifestyle!
THE DRIVING FORCE
How can this take place with over 7 billion people on planet earth? How can there be that great of a subtle subliminal impact of preparation without the knowledge of the prepping taking place on such a grand scale?
The task is huge. It’s no small undertaking. The tentacles are far reaching and there are many factions performing different task. One such tentacle is entertainment! It has probably the most far reaching success effect!
A tentacle that is treated like a buffet, reject and condemn that which we don’t want or don’t agree with, but participate, condone, and scoff at ridicule of that which we have chosen to accept and tolerate!
1 Timothy 3:1-4
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Another verse of scripture comes to mind as well;
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Entertainment includes a wide array of vehicles, books, movies, music, gaming, sports, and recreation, on and on. I am not implying all entertainment is bad, but I am saying we better know how to manage it and make the right choices!
Worldwide, the culture of entertainment has taken over. From the mud huts of Africa, the African native will appear on a smartphone to his ear or listening with a blue tooth device as he talks with someone a world away. More importantly, the same individual will bring up an app, watch a movie or view a sports event.
Two examples of adverse entertainment:
In Super bowl 2012, Madonna entertained openly using satanic and occult symbols unabashedly ending in black mass ceremonial dress performing her hit song “Like A Prayer.”
Madonna commented to Anderson Cooper in an interview prior to her 2012 Superbowl performance that she had to deliver a sermon that had to be very impactful.
After her performance the mystical occult world gushing with excitement, as one sorceress analyst put it, Madonna delivered a sermon that billions heard but very few understood and she has ushered in a new era!
Most people just see it as entertainment. The majority of individuals scoff that it is anything but a performance. The sad thing, most so called Christians don’t get it!
What blows my mind… people that call themselves Apostolic, play down that this stuff has any kind of connection to spiritual darkness! It’s just entertainment. Just music. Just a game. Just a movie. Just fantasy.
Whatever environment we expose ourselves to we become. People align themselves with darkness, don’t get that all of this stuff since the beginning of time, doesn’t just happen!
We cannot open ourselves to the spirit of Antichrist and not expect adverse consequences!
Individuals make no connection to there is an agenda! Little by little the deterioration has taken place. If it had all been thrown at us at one time… if we had gone from Mayberry to Sodom and Gomorrah overnight, the masses wouldn’t have bought into it!
Madonna allowed to perform with satanic occult symbolism, performing to over 2 billion people worldwide opened doors into the spirit world of darkness that were previously not open… yes, she ushered in a new era!
Next up on the worldwide entertainment stage of billions of viewers, the 2013 superbowl, comes Beyonce. Just 12 months prior, Madonna set the stage… now Beyonce enters with even more openly bold satanic rituals!
Beyonce, in interviews describes a “force that comes into her which she calls Sasha Fierce” and basically it is an alternate personality.
She claims that “no way could she perform the moves she performs without this force.” This demonic possession is clearly necessary to facilitate the agenda of the occult ritual and Beyonce is a willing host!
In the weeks, and months following her performance, with interviews proclaiming the force that enhances her performance, there has been a public relations campaign elevating the image of Beyonce and her possession… thus possession is cool, and the masses following entertainment seek to be more powerful! Again the spirit of Antichrist chalks another one up, it’s another step closer to utopia, revealing of the wicked one!
There are many supporting factions, all manipulated by the same spirit of this age, striving toward the same goal, world satanic possession powered toward a day that the ultimate one is revealed taking over as satan finally has his day on the world stage, the antichrist, embodied by satan the one world leader of the Universe!
One entertainer, dancing with the stars performer Nicole Scherzinger says “that to be successful in the music industry you have to sell your soul to the devil! Entertainment has made it cool to be possessed!
WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
What is it all about? Much of humanity has had the wrong impression that it was about this or that. It’s about a declaration that was made, a fallen angel, and humanity willing to give up dominion and authority.
Satan has done his dead level best to accomplish some declarations he made!
· I will ascend into heaven
· I will exalt my throne above the stars of God
· I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation
· I will ascend above the heights of the clouds
And his main proclamation:
· I will be like the most high
He wants to be equal with God and actually take God’s place as possessor and ruler of all. He wants to become a completely independent creature, responsible to no one. He wants to be “instead of Christ.”
The agenda of the spirit of Antichrist is to ultimately power up the Antichrist, therefore fulfilling scripture that the Antichrist, the very embodiment of satan will rule the world temporarily for seven years with demonic evilness! This agenda conditions the world today to be of kindred spirit with the antichrist as he is powered up to complete world dominance. There is an agenda! Our problem, most want to ignore that there is, look away, play it down, label it old school thinking! It’s time to bring some old school philosophy back, go back to the basics, before the enemy seeking whom it can devour has its way with more!
We are at war, from this war there is no discharge!
8 There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.

In a day and hour that it is apparent we are living in EXTREME TIMES, it has become extremely important as in no other day to use God given authority against the wiles of satan.
“XTREME TIMES – Countering Antichrist Spirit Forces” has been designed to help the Christian utilizing scripture, fight this battle against the end time spirit of Antichrist, ultimately the war against demonic foes!
The journey of praying with authority can and will totally change the entire facet of your prayer life, your walk with God, and the way you perceive God involving himself in your life and in the lives of those you love! He will change our perception of how He does things, God’s ways are not our ways.
He will help you recognize the various dimensions in the spirit world. The spirit dimension will help you to recognize how the enemy works.
This book is a combination of praying with authority and identifying spiritual warfare on a daily basis!
“And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.” Mark 1:35
Jesus received his instructions each day to do the will of God. If Jesus needed to pray to receive instruction, isn’t it even more important that we do so?
See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
We have the authority on a daily basis to overcome Satan and his wiles. We must put on the Armor of God on a daily basis so that our authority is not diminished.
Don’t put up with evil spirits and their disruptive activities. This book will help you live a victorious Christian life.
Satan would like to keep us ignorant of the power and the authority we have at our disposal to use against his kingdom.
