18 z Little children, a it is the last hour; and as you have heard that b the 1 Antichrist is coming, c even now many antichrists have come, by which we know d that it is the last hour. 19 e They went out from us, but they were not of us; for f if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out g that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. 20 But h you have an anointing i from the Holy One, and j you 2 know all things. 21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22 l Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 m Whoever denies the Son does not have the n Father either; o he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 24 Therefore let that abide in you q you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. 25 r And this is the promise that He has promised us - eternal life.
26 These things I have written to you concerning those who try to 3 deceive you. 27 But the s anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and t you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing u teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you 4 will abide in Him.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
