1 John 2:26-29 (NIV)
26 I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray.
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.
God’s Children and Sin
28 And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.
29 If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of him.
Here John is warning us again about the antichrists and wolves in sheeps clothing. He is saying do not listen to these false teachers but stick to what you were taught in scripture. He says the anointing you received from God remains in you and because of that you do not need anyone to teach you, the anointing Holy Spirit will teach you what u need to know. We are to continue in him, meaning doing his will, reaching the lost, praying, reading God’s word, living right so that when he appears we will be unashamed. If you do what’s right you know you are born of him. No matter what the world says is right, we as his children are to do what God says is right.
As we live in this world is so easy to be tempted and drawn away from God, that’s why we must REMAIN in him. How do we do that? Read the Bible daily, pray, spend quite time alone with God. He will mold you and take all worldly desires away.
Lord help us to overcome the flesh and worldly desires, help us to look to you and be about our fathers business, and Lord let us be so full of your word that when the wolves and antichrists come knocking we send them away packing in Jesus name Amen 🙏🏻
