gave him to show his servants what must
soon take place (Rev 1:1)
 Behold, I am coming soon (Rev 22:7, 12, 20)
 For a thousand years in your sight are like a
day that has just gone by (Ps 90:4; II Pet 3:8)
 Why “soon” is approaching?
 Prophecies fulfilled: Is 44:29, Ez 11:17 (1948)
This is the Last Hour
 Character of time: terrible times
 II Tim 3:1-5 But mark this: there will be terrible
times in the LAST DAYS. People will be lovers of
themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud,
abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful,
unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous,
without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the
good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of
pleasure rather than lovers of God – having a
form of godliness but denying its power. Have
nothing to do with them.
This is the Last Hour
 Swiftness of time: Instantly
 For you know very well that the day of the Lord
will come like a thief in the night (I Thes 5:2)
 We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed – in
a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last
trumpet (I Cor 15:51-52)
I. Deception Around Us
 V 18 Dear Children, this is the last hour; and
as you have heard that the antichrist is
coming, even now many antichrists have
come. This is how we know it is the last hour
Antichrist
 Satan , “the adversary”, in the form of a serpent





tempted Eve in Genesis 3; opposes God and man
Identified in Revelation 12:9 as “that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan.”
After church rapture, he will concentrate his
rebellion in the person of Antichrist as his agent
Against: Rev 13:1, beast from sea, Political ruler
Instead of: an imitation of, substitute, 2nd beast
from land Rev 13:11, “lamb”, but a wolf, pretends
to be the Lamb of God (John 1:29)
Satan masquerades as angel of light II Cor 11:14
Antichrist
 After rapture, Antichrist (AC) counterfeits
 AC inaugurates a world peace program
 AC comes out of 10 nations Dan 9:26
 World spellbound x 42 months (3.5 yrs)
 Change and Utopia has arrived!
 Bottom falls out mid tribulation
 AC breaks all pledges Dan 9:27, I Thes 5:3
 Hell on earth begins for 3.5 yrs
 Forces man to receive mark, 666 Rev 13:11-18
I. Deception
Amongst Us
 V 18 Dear Children, this is the last hour; and
as you have heard that the antichrist is
coming, even now many antichrists have
come. This is how we know it is the last hour
Many Antichrists
 Mt 24:5 “Many shall come in my name, saying, ‘I am






Christ,’ and shall deceive many”
Outward looks of Christian, bear Christian name
ID themselves with local church; have spirit of AC
Luke 22:21 (Judas’ betrayal)
II Cor 11:13-14 For such men are false apostles, deceitful
workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no
wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as angel of light
II Peter 2:1 False teachers will secretly introduce
destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord
who bought them, bringing swift destruction on selves
Rev 2:2 I know you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you
have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not
and have found them false (to Church in Ephesus)
II. Dispersion
 V 19 They went out from us, but they did not
really belong to us.
 With us but not “with us”
 Relationship
 Church Member / Hear Truth / Fellowship w
Christians
 No Fellowship with Christ
 No personal communion with Christ
 Were they ever saved? NO!
No Losing Salvation
 Can’t lose Salvation
 Can lose Fellowship
 Born Again?
 I tell you the TRUTH, no one can see the kingdom of
God unless he is born again (Jn 3:3)
 My sheep hear my voice, I know them, they follow me:
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never
perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my
hand (Jn 10:27-8)
 While I was with them, I protected them and kept
them safe by that name you gave me. None has been
lost except the one doomed to destruction (Jn 17:12)
No Cruise Control
 I Cor 16:13 Be on guard, stand firm in faith
 II Cor 13:5 Examine yourselves to see
whether you are in the faith: test
yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ
Jesus is in you – unless, of course, you fail
the test?
Man Overboard!
 I Tim 4:1-2
 In the last times some will abandon the faith and
follow deceiving spirits and things taught by
demons. Such teachings come through
hypocritical liars, whose conscience seared as with
a hot iron
 Heb 6:4-5
 It is impossible for those who have once been
enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who
have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the
goodness of the word of God and the powers of the
coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to
repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying
the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to
public disgrace
III. Discretion
Within Us
 V 21 I do not write to you because you do not
know the truth, but because you do know it
and because no lie comes from the truth
What is the Truth?
 During Jesus Ministry
 “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you
will know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH will set you free (John 8:3132)
 Before Jesus arrest, prays for disciples (Jn 17:17)
 Sanctify them by the truth; your WORD is TRUTH
 During Jesus arrest, answers Pilate (Jn 18:33-9)






Are you a king of the Jews?
Is that your own idea or did others talk to you
Am I a Jew? What is it you have done?
My kingdom is not of this world
You are a king then!
You are right. For this I was born. I came to testify to the TRUTH.
Everyone on the side f truth listens to me
 What is the truth? Pilate asked
 This man is the only man that pierced my soul
Turning Away from the Truth
 Preach the Word; be prepared in season and
out of season…For the time will come when
men will not put up with sound doctrine.
Instead, to suit their own desires, they will
gather around them a great number of
teachers to say what their itching ears want to
hear. They will turn their ears away from the
truth and turn to myths (II Tim 4:2-4; Is 30:10)
 The god of this age has blinded the minds of
unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light
of the gospel of the glory of Christ (II Cor 4:4)

my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with
him, and he with me (Rev 3:20)

his arms and carries them close to his heart (Is 40:11)
