1 John 2:26–27 (ESV)
Warning Concerning Antichrists (Part 2)
26 I write these things to you about those who are trying to deceive you. 27 But the anointing that you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach
you. But as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie—just as it has taught you, abide in him.
True Christians abide in Christ
through faith in Him and all His teachings. There are many antichrists, false teachers who infiltrate the Church and attempt to draw Christians away from the true Christ. There is great danger for us if we do not know the Scriptures well and are unable to
recognize false teachers. In God’s Word and by His Spirit, we have everything we need to tell the difference between the truth and a lie. We already have all that we need to be certain of our eternal life.
I pray: Heavenly Father, keep us steadfast in Your Word, and ever guard us from the deceptions of the many antichrists who seek to lead us away from Your Son, who is forever true God and true man. Amen.
