HUMANISM: Forerunner for Antichrist by Dr Derek Prince
(This was written in 1992. How relevant it remains in our day! George Otis Junior penned a book called The Last of the Giants and he suggested in this book that Islam would be the final giant to succumb. Eliyahu ben Chayim, of blessed memory, argued that secular humanism (human rights) will be the final giant to fall before Messiah’s return. I agree with him!)
“For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against persons without bodies—the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world; and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world”. (Eph. 6:12)
As followers of Jesus Christ, we find ourselves caught up in a conflict that spans both
heaven and earth. The forces that confront us are “persons without bodies”—evil spiritual powers in the unseen realm that oppose all true righteousness and seek to establish Satan’s dominion over the whole world.
Our responsibility in this conflict is unique, because Christ has committed to us alone the spiritual insight and weapons that can give us victory. The governments and the armies of this world, operating solely on the natural plane, have no understanding of the conflict and no power to deal with the satanic forces in the heavenlies. On the contrary, without realizing it, they themselves are manipulated and controlled by those forces.
