"Reconnecting the Heart of Man, back to the Heart of Father-God, through the Prophetic Song of the Spirit..." 
"Spiritual 'Shut-Ins'"

by John & Kelly Sielski
Just like the Spirit of Christ, so too the spirit of anti-Christ is, likewise, a 7-fold spirit.  Ultimately, the Spirit of Christ is the manifestation of God's righteousness (the Father's love in Christ) in us toward the brethren (one another), and toward the rest of the whole world.  And ultimately, the spirit of anti-Christ is the manifestation of our own self-righteousness (and hatred) in us toward the brethren (one another), and toward the rest of the whole world.  Ironically, everything that the spirit of anti-Christ does in us and through us, both toward one another and toward the rest of the whole world; it does, thinking that it is doing "God" a service.  Anti-Christ lives to "please God"; attempting to show how it lives up to all of "God's" performance requirements and obedience standards, even claiming "perfect submission" to "the voice of 'God'".  But it demonstrates next to zero love, at all, toward the brethren.  It has never known God as a Father; never known the love of the Father that Jesus has revealed, and is revealing.  And this is where true identification with the Cross of Christ "separates the men from the boys" and "the women from the girls".  How can we continue to claim the love of the Father, while despising and choosing to separate ourselves from one another; even hating the Father's other sons and daughters, as we casually and conveniently hide behind our natural environment,  "circumstances", and "situations"... (1)earthly father, (2)earthly mother, (3)earthly spouse, (4)earthly children, (5)earthly brothers, (6)earthly sisters and (7)our "own" earthly life?  By definition, "Pharisee" means "separatist".  Prophet Haggai wrote of a people... a remnant according to the election of Grace... who would be released, and return, from Babylonian captivity; a remnant who would be sanctioned, empowered to rebuild "the Temple", "the Wall" and a "New Jerusalem".  But in turn, what they do... initially... is separate themselves from one another; choosing rather to dwell and seal themselves in their own houses, worshiping their natural families and thus misappropriating the Grace given them.  Right now, at least, we are that people!

Luke 14: 25-27 (KJV)
25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

Haggai 1: 2-11 (KJV)
2 Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built.
3 Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,
4 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your sealed houses, and this house lie waste?
5 Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.
6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
7 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.
8 Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the Lord.
9 Ye looked for much, and, lo it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the Lord of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.
10 Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit.
11 And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labour of the hands.
