There are 2 spirits that operate in the world. The Spirit of God and the spirit of Satan, The Spirit of Truth and the spirit of deception. One is the Mystery of Godliness the other is the mystery of iniquity. One promotes the Kingdom of God: The other the kingdom of Satan. The antichrist spirit is the spirit that promotes Satan's kingdom. Throughout history the antichrist spirit has used every evil empire and every so called leader who was not ordained of God. This power is described In the book of Ephesians 6:12 As the principalities, powers,of Satan. The leaders are the rulers of the darkness of this world, They are the spiritual wickedness in high places. Lead and guided by the SPIRIT OF THE ANTICHRIST to carryout Satan's agenda in deceiving the whole world.
