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.
We know the truth, we know the difference between it and the lies of the world. Many have left Christ for the world where the rewards are fleeting and shallow. If you have been anointed by Christ, why would you leave Him? Why walk away from the truth? Evaluate your life, it is time to start fresh and walk in the light of Christ.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, as this year ends, help me to embrace your truth and walk in your light, always standing in your truth. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice!
