1 John 4:3 Every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God:  this is the spirit of the antichrist, you heard that it should come; and is now already is it in the world.

Romans 8:14 All who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.
Galatians 5:18  But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.
You are not under the law, because you are hearing God and obeying HIM

    In forty years of loving God and trying to please Him. I have learned a few things that I can witness as true and been proven again and again. Salvation by Jesus, for the confession of our sins is real and does change your life, and you will be very aware of it. Once truly saved you will be aware of God's love, and will want to share it, and witness to others about it.  You will have a desire to please God, in all things, and want His guidance in all things you do and say. The Holy Spirit is the gift given to us by Jesus on the cross, so we at any time can know what God wants of us! Salvation was possible before Jesus Christ gave his life for us, but it was through the priests.  The priests were often corrupted, and led the people astray, away from God.  The bible is clear, we should not worship or pray to Christ, the Holy Spirit or any saints. The Holy Spirit is a spirit created by God, that allows communication between man or women and God Any man or women who loves God and wants God's perfect will in their life can ask and will receive it, obey and you are sanctified and will hear again.  Disobey, you will need to go back to Jesus to be forgiven and start over.  Simple?  It is, all things of God are simple once revealed. 
I have not found the end of times Jesus will forgive.  You can communicate with God constantly, and walk in the spirit.
The devil does not like that.  But Jesus is here on Earth to help you, He has tied the devil to the center of earth with chains.  The devil will not be released until all saved are with Jesus.

The baptism of the Holy Spirit was predicted by John the Baptist (Mark 1:8) and by Jesus before He ascended to heaven: "For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit" (Acts 1:5). This promise was fulfilled on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4); for the first time, people were permanently indwelt by the Holy Spirit, and the church had begun.

How were the early Christians guided?   It was only by The Holy Spirit, so it was important to be led by Him either directly or by people who could clearly hear Him. In Acts, you never saw a book referred too (unless it was the Old Testament) as no book existed, so Acts showed how the early church functioned, and how Jesus taught them to live.

Acts 1:2 |   Until the day in which He was taken up, after that He through the Holy Ghost had given commandments to the apostles.
Acts 5:32 |   And we are His witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God has given to them that obey Him.
John 7:39 |   But this spoke He of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.

A most typical thing of the Holy Spirit is to simply "send people on their way" and give directions along the journey

Acts 2:38 And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ
for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

The Apostle Paul gave all the credit and glory to the Spirit, whose power enabled his message to pierce the hearts of sinful men and bring them to salvation. He knew it was not his apologetics, hermeneutics, or persuasive ability that brought people to Christ: "My speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God" (1 Corinthians 2:4-5).

  Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves.  Churches today do "sell religion" for their gain.    And He said to them, 
It is written, My house will be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves.   This is it, the main reason God sent Jesus. Not simply for salvation. Salvation was available before, but to enable God's people to hear God and know how to obey and please Him. The priests were the only ones able to communicate with God before. They were taking money, because of their sins, were not hearing God. They were actually hearing the spirit of the antichrist, he was there in the form of religion.

2 Corinthians 11:14  What light do you follow?
Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light"

This nation lacks Holy Spirit teaching!

It angered Jesus when the priests were asking for money.
What do the preachers and churches do today?
Why do they not preach about the Holy Spirit?

The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.  Romans 8:6-13

Wake up stupid people!  The Holy Spirit is what the churches do not preach or talk about.
