Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that the antichrist was coming, so now many antichrists have appeared. Thus we know this is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not really of our number; if they had been, they would have remained with us. Their desertion shows that none of them was of our number. But you have the anointing that comes from the Holy One, and you all have knowledge. I write to you not because you do not know the truth but because you do, and because every lie is alien to the truth.
Are you one of Jesus’ number? If so, you know the truth, you know what are lies and do not speak them. Who do you stand with? The time is coming when you will need to take a stand, are you ready?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I stand with you and hopefully always speak your truth. Guide me and lead me your way. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice!
