    And that spirit of antichrist is now most prevalent in the last time as Satan is a king over all the children of pride. JESUS CHRIST is come in the flesh but pride stops ears and blinds eyes causing unbelief. John 5:47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words? 1 John 2:18 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 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come and even now already is it in the world.
