Derek Prince – Bible Teacher
This is the fourth and final session of our series of talks on the theme of “The Enemies We Face”; “We,” of course, being God’s people, the Church of Jesus Christ.
FORCES THE CHURCH FACES TODAY
In the previous two talks I have dealt with what I believe to be the two main enemies that confront the Church today. The first is witchcraft, the second is the spirit or the power of antichrist.
Witchcraft I defined as really the universal religion of fallen humanity — the means by which men through all the ages have sought to make contact with Satan’s rebellious kingdom of angels in the heavenlies, worshiping them in some way or other as gods.
Antichrist is a different kind of spiritual power that only has relevance where the Gospel of Jesus has first been proclaimed. I pointed out that the word “anti” has two meanings: first of all, “against”; secondly, “in place of.”
And the pressure of the spirit of antichrist is against Jesus, the true Messiah, to eliminate Him. But then the second move is to replace Him by a false Messiah. And I suggested to you that spiritual force is very actively at work in the church today.
