1 John 2:18-27 - Departure Of The False Teachers

18 Little children, it is the last hour; and, as ye heard that Anti-Christ is coming, even now many anti-christs have arisen; whence we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from among us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out, that they might be made manifest, that they are not all of us.

20 And ye have an anointing from the Holy One, and ye all know Him. 21 I did not write to you because ye know not the truth; but because ye know it, and because no falsehood is of the truth. 22 Who is the liar, but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the Anti-Christ, he that denies the Father and the Son. 23 Every one who denies the Son has not the Father either; he who confesses the Son has the Father also.

24 As for you, let that which ye heard from the beginning abide in you. If that which ye heard from the beginning abide in you, ye also shall abide in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise which He Himself promised us, the eternal life. 26 These things I wrote to you concerning those who would deceive you.

27 And the Anointing which ye received from Him abideth in you, and ye have no need that anyone teach you; but as His Anointing teacheth you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as He taught you, ye abide in Him.
