“Who is the Liar?”
Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist---denying the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 1 John 2:22-23
The question is: “Who is the liar?” John tells us who that person is. He says it is the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist----denying the Father and the Son. John was not saying that everyone who denies Jesus as the Christ, will become the antichrist of the Book of Revelations, but that ANYONE who denies that Jesus is the Christ, has the same mindset as the antichrist of the Book of Revelations.
The word “antichrist” means anyone who is opposed to Christ. The word ‘anti’ means; against; hostile to. So an ANTICHRIST means one who operates against Christ. They are hostile to Him and REJECT Him as the Messiah, Savior of mankind.
John goes on to tell us that; “No one who denies the Son has the Father;” mainly because they are a package deal, the Lord Jesus Christ and Father God are one and the same. Jesus said: “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.” He also said: “Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me;” (John 14:9, 11)
So if one denies the Son, they also deny the Father. This means that you cannot have one without the other. Some people believe in God, but they deny that Jesus is the ONE, TRUE MESSIAH that takes away the sins of ALL mankind. He is the ONLY WAY to get to Heaven, and to be able to come into the presence of the Almighty God. Jesus said: “I am the WAY and the TRUTH, and the LIFE. NO ONE comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) He is the ONLY ANSWER to our sin problem. Denying Jesus as Savior and Lord is the one sin that will send people to Hell. ARE YOU DENYING JESUS AS SAVIOR AND LORD?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to Jesus Christ, then you are REJECTING Him. You are operating AGAINST Him. You cannot work or earn your way into Heaven, a part from JESUS CHRIST. In many instances, people believe that as long as they believe in God, that belief will get them into Heaven, and therefore they are DENYING the fact that Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY. And they miss Heaven because of their DENIAL and REJECTION. Who is the liar? The one who denies that Jesus is the Christ, thus denying the Father and the SON. Are YOU the liar? God is giving you another opportunity to ACCEPT His Son, Jesus and receive your SALVATION. You do that by; coming to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and the HOPE of Heaven by ACCEPTING and NOT REJECTING or DENYING His Only Begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
