How can we be aware of the anti-Christ? a man asked me.
“Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the
Father and the Son.”
1 John 2:22
(also, see 1 John 2:18-23)
My first thought to answer him is that you need to know the Word of God, and be filled with His Spirit. Jesus says, “the Spirit of Truth will tell you all things.” in John 16:13.
Remembering teachings from Daniel and Revelation about the end of time and the anti-Christ; he’s going to be popular and perform miracles, he’ll be a false teacher simply because he disagrees with the Word of God and is God’s enemy and our enemy.
“God is rich in mercy” Ephesians 2:4
**Read the Bible and allow the Holy Spirit to talk to you, and you won’t get fooled.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
John 4:42, “Then they said to the woman, ‘Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.’ ”
Matthew 16:19 (NIV), “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Dream: a television in the sill of an open window, facing outside. Someone in the room said, ‘we can turn it around.’ I said, “what happens when it rains?”
The open window symbol stands for an opportunity
Rain is the Holy Spirit
Television can be a voice for God or a distraction
LORD God, we need Your Spirit, to heard You. Let us prepare a place for You in our lives, honor Your written word above all other teaching and honor Your Holy spoken word to us because our lives depend on You. Thank You for Ravi Zacharias and all Your holy teachers over the years, in Jesus’ name.
Haggai 2:4-9, “Yet now be strong…for I am with you…Once more I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land…I will shake all nations…I will fill this temple with glory…. And in this place I will give peace.”
Derek Prince Ministries gives a biblical prophecy on end times. There’s a lot of voices out there, especially now. Do they match the Word of God? Some prophets may be well-meaning, but it helps you all to know God’s word so you can discern the truth personally. I don’t want you to be left behind.
Someone in a prayer group said that Derek Prince had a deliverance ministry. That’s only part right – He had a Jesus ministry.
“He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick.” Matthew 8:16-17

Almost awake, felt a heaviness on my breath. Heard in my spirit, “it’s an oppression.” I rebuked the oppression in Jesus’ name & felt immediately normal.
Isaiah 61:3, “…To give them…the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…”
Derek Prince taught that depression or heaviness is an evil spirit. Nearly 2 years ago, a similar thing happened – I prayed against it. The following day, I heard a friend’s baby had shortness of breath at the same time as me.
When a sudden illness comes upon you, pray against it for yourself and anyone else who may have it, whether friend or stranger. This is how God heals through people like Randy Clark, Founder of Global Awakening – https://globalawakening.com/ .
Acts 2:1, 3, 4, “When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
“Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
John 14:26, “Butthe Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father willsend in My name,He will teach you all things, and bring to yourremembrance all things that I said to you.”
Luke 4:1, “Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,“
Fr. Michael Scanlan, of the Franciscan Order, Let the Fire Fall, 1986, is a good read. God’s no respecter of persons.
“I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; The humble shall hear of it and be glad. 3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together.“
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You’re always near, always true, always honest, always think the best way for us. I’ve been prideful and humbled, and bless Your name O God, nothing surprises You, but You want us to need You, to come to You and seek Your forgiveness, Your Spirit, Your Presence. Bless You, dear God and peace to You. Amen
Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:27-29
Mix milk, rice, raisins and cinnamon together in a pot and bring to a boil, while stirring a bit. Lower flame, cover while stirring occasionally till rice is all softened, add a little more milk if needed, about 30 minutes. Add butter and let it melt in. Smash in banana leaving some lumps. Serve.
Cooking the rice in milk takes a lot longer than in water and the banana gives it a Caribbean feel. Adapted from cafedelites.com/easy-cinnamon-raisin-rice-pudding/
