7439 - You Know - 1 John 2:20-21

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.

7446 - Anointing - 1 John 2:27

Listen, read, and comment

In our study of 1 John we have been carefully walking through those verses in chapter 2 in which John is strongly warning the believers in the church –– the body of Christ –– regarding the false teachers which have appeared in the Church near the end of the first century.

Today lets seek the deep meaning of 1 John 2:27. Let’s read this verse and then we will discuss it.

1 John 2:27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit --just as it has taught you, remain in him.
