Antichrists, Anointing & Abiding

This morning we’re picking up where we left off last year when the pandemic kicked into high gear. We’ll be in a new text in 1 John 2, and it’s all about antichrists, anointing and abiding. How’s that for a lineup of potential misunderstanding?! Maybe John could even throw in the term “last hour” for the full effect. Oh wait, he mentions that too!

If you want the average Christian’s ears to turn your direction, just start talking about end times and the Antichrist. The Antichrist will deceive many, but we probably don’t know anyone who thinks he will potentially deceive them! The truth is, there are many antichrists and many who are deceived. How do we stand in confidence? By abiding in the most basic of truths of the identity of Jesus and who we are and what we have in him.
