Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. . . . But you have an anointing from the Holy One.
1 John 2:18-20
1 John 2:15-29
One day the world will welcome history’s most charismatic leader, a man whose oratory will sway the masses, whose magnetism will amaze the media, and whose mouth will blaspheme God. But we needn’t wait for the evil he will bring, for it is already here. The spirit of the antichrist is in the world now.
In Jesus’ name, we can stand against the spirit of the antichrist today; and John told us how to do it in 1 John 2: “Do not love the world or the things in the world. . . . the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. . . . You have an anointing from the Holy One. . . . Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. . . . Abide in Him” (verses 15-29).
Except for divine intervention, this world is a lost cause. Don’t fall in love with it. You have an anointing from God. You can abide in God’s truth every day as you abide in Christ. You can overcome. For whoever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith (1 John 5:4).
Soldiers of Christ, arise and put your armor on, strong in the strength which God supplies thru His eternal Son.
Luke 13 – 15
