Anointing » The anointing of the lord

1 John 2:24-29

Ye, then, that which ye heard from the beginning, in you let it remain; if in you may remain that which from the beginning ye did hear, ye also in the Son and in the Father shall remain, and this is the promise that He did promise us -- the life the age-during. These things I did write to you concerning those leading you astray; read more.
and you, the anointing that ye did receive from him, in you it doth remain, and ye have no need that any one may teach you, but as the same anointing doth teach you concerning all, and is true, and is not a lie, and even as was taught you, ye shall remain in him. And now, little children, remain in him, that when he may be manifested, we may have boldness, and may not be ashamed before him, in his presence; if ye know that he is righteous, know ye that every one doing the righteousness, of him hath been begotten.
