Listen, read, and comment 1 John, along with the gospel of John, and the short epistles called 2 & 3 John, along with Revelation were written by John late in his life. He ministered in Asia Minor and was particularly influential in the church in Ephesus. It was during these years in the decade of the 90’s that John was touched by the attack upon the Church by false teachers. To counter these teachings of heresy the Holy Spirit used John to write the five books of the New Testament mentioned earlier.
Today let’s look at 1 John 2, verses 20 & 21.
1 John 2:20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.
1 John 2:21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth.

Listen, read, and comment In our study through the book of 1 John, we have come to chapter 2, verses 18-19. Listen as I read them as well as verse 22.
“Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.” (22) “Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist --he denies the Father and the Son.”
Let’s discuss this expression ‘antichrist’ today. Literally it means one who is against Christ, or an opponent of Christ.

Listen, read, and comment In our study of 1 John we are now in chapter two, verse 15-16. There is a warning message for Christians in these two verses.
“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world --the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does --comes not from the Father but from the world.”
In these verses John gives us one of the most instructive & honest appraisals of the world system as any in the Bible.
