By this you know the Spirit of God: God is at work building a new community, a new creation. The ascended Christ is not physically present with us, yet he has sent his Spirit at Pentecost, restoring communion not only between the Creator and his creatures but also communion between men and women of different social classes, ethnicities, and backgrounds Eph.
A sharp two-edged sword
Here are six truths we can glean from what the New Testament teaches us concerning the Spirit of God's presence and work today. The Spirit guides us into all truth, which the Son embodies. The Spirit leads us to confess the Son of God has become incarnate for us and for our salvation. The Spirit does not replace Jesus but rather grafts and unites us to our heavenly king and head, disrupting ordinary history by placing us into the new creation Acts 2: The Spirit glorifies Jesus, making him known through indwelling our hearts as a gift of our final redemption.
The Spirit thus mediates the threefold office of Christ to every believer, glorifying the Son in and through us John The Spirit gives and orchestrates the many gifts bestowed on the whole body through the ministry of pastors, elders, and deacons in the church.
The Antichrist Is Here, and Not Yet Here
These officers are given so we may be brought up into maturity in the faith 1 Cor. We are remade into true and faithful witnesses in the cosmic courtroom, a choir answering antiphonally singing in response in praise to our Redeemer by the power of the Spirit Eph. The Scriptures point out these signs very clearly if we only look.
The world will know we are Jesus' disciples by our love for one another. Faith is a heartfelt trust that throws us into the arms of Jesus which simultaneously rests in Christ and rejects the spirit of this evil age. This true, saving faith is a fruit of the Spirit's work. The tools that the Spirit of the Lord uses are the preaching of his Word and the right use of the Sacraments within godly discipleship Acts 2: This reality could only come about because the blood of Christ has brought us near.
Nevertheless, this new creation is something we must work at.
If these things aren't happening, we can know the spirit at work is not the Spirit of God. The last hour and the coming antichrist. It is the last hour and as you have heard that antichrist is coming…. Last week I mentioned that we all have a clock ticking down our brief days on this earth, but there is a bigger clock ticking down the days of the world as we know it. There are three major historical periods outlined in the Bible.
The first period is the period before the flood pre-diluvian. We might think this period of time is extremely short because it happens in the 6 th chapter of the first book of the Bible Genesis , but the fact is there were almost years of human history before the flood. The period after the flood post-diluvian was another years or so until Christ came. The Apostles John, Paul and Peter knew they were living in the last days. We are in the last days. Not the antichrist, but an antichrist.
Antichrists will come from within the church. These are teachers who got their start in the church. They looked like they were one of us, just as Judas looked like all the other disciples, until he went out to betray Jesus. These false teachers know the Christian lingo and Christian doctrines so they can pick it apart and argue against it and distort it more effectively than someone not familiar with the faith can.
Paul warned the Ephesian elders of the same danger coming from within the church in Acts By the way, there is a case for eternal security in this verse. For if they had been of us that is, genuine believers , they would have continued with us. If someone falls away from Christ, if someone denies the faith they once accepted, if someone leaves the church to peddle heresy, they may have looked like a genuine disciple of Christ at one time like Judas did but they were not.
The spirit of the Antichrist part I: Denying that Jesus came in the flesh
If they had been, John says, they would have continued with us in the truth. Jesus said something similar in John A lot more could be said about that, but John is saying the greatest danger — the antichrists that will rise up — will rise up from within the church. The second thing he says is that they will always, in one way or another, deny Christ. Antichrists will deny Christ. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also.
Some will be really obvious in their denial of Christ and others will be really subtle and clever.

The most dangerous antichrists are the ones who are incredibly charismatic and convincing as they deny Christ in ways that sounds as though they are honoring and following him. Often by presenting clever alternative messages about who Jesus is and what he came to do: Jesus was a god-man who came to show us how to tap in our divinity. That appeals to our pride. Jesus was a good, moral teacher, a prophet who was ahead of his time. He never meant to be thought of as God.
It was his followers who felt it necessary to mythologize him into a divine being. There are a thousand ways that denying Christ can look. John makes it real simple: If someone exalts God but diminishes Jesus, they have neither. John warns them, they have neither Father or Son.
Preaching should be according to God’s Spirit
True believers can discern truth from error by the Holy Spirit and the word of God. The Holy Spirit always works in conjunction with the word of God. Jesus said of the Holy Spirit,. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.
