(KJV.) 1 JOHN 2:22-25
(22) Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is an'-ti-christ, that denieth the Father and the Son.
(23) Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
(24) Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
(25) And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
WHO IS A LIAR?
Brethren, as followers of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, let us be certain of our believes that Christ is our Lord and Savior and Son of the Living God; at times, we come across other believers who claims to be righteous children of God; that is perfectly alright, for we are all children of the Most High God, but, when we came in contact with believers who claims that Christ is not a Son of God but just an old time prophet, radical believer or troublemaker for traditional authorities, let us be careful of negative influences and stick to what we believe and the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation.
Case in point, John in this Epistle teaches us to know that God is light; God is love; and God is life; he elaborates on the confusion that others may have concerning who Jesus Christ is; today, let us look at these following verses; he said, (i) Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is an'-ti-christ, that denieth the Father and the Son. let us be careful of those who say that it is not true that Jesus is the Son of the Living God, that God does not have a wife and cannot have a Son and refuse to accept him as Son of the Father and Lord and Savior of humanity but still claims to inherit eternal life after death; the scriptures stated clearly in (I John 5:20) And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life: (ii) Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also: therefore, those who refuse to accept Jesus Christ as the Son of the Living God, had also rejected the Father as God of all creation; but those who recognize and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and Son of the Father, are also parts of the Father of all creation; it is a complete package deal for humanity.
WORDS OF INSPIRATION:
Points to ponder on (24) Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father: beloved, let us not get confused of who we are in the faith and who Jesus Christ really is, and what he stands for but hold on to wisdom, knowledge and understandings of the scriptures and that which we were taught from beginnings of our journeys in the faith of the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and adhere strictly to what we have learned from his words and commandments given to him for humanity by the Father of all creation, that we may walk always in godliness, enjoy grace freely and be joint heirs with him in life everlasting:
Fruit of thoughts, (25) And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. what is this promise? the promise is, if we believers and followers of Jesus Christ, will hold on to what we know in the faith of his righteousness, believe and trust in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; and ascertain him as the Son of the Living God and part of the Holy Trinity; who came to planet earth in a form of human to walk among us in flesh and to experience life on planet earth; to introduce the kingdom of heaven and the will of the Father unto humanity; who at the end of his ministry, he was condemned by the same people he cared for; beaten, suffered, shed his blood on the cross of Calvary to take away all our iniquities, died, went into the grave to set the captives free from bondage; and by his resurrection, he tore up the partition of the Holy altar between the Living God and humanity, and today, we are able to come boldly into the throne of grace to obtain mercies, salvation and life everlasting.
Brethren, we know the truth now, so let us be careful of lies from spirits of an'-ti-christ; Jesus is authentic Son of the Living God; though our physical eyes cannot see him walking and working among us on planet earth; he is always among us, when strange things happen to us but then we are suddenly delivered from danger; let us know for sure that Jesus is working on behalves of humanity, and even for unbelievers to change their statuses into believers by his manifestations in their lives: the enemy is frustrated now, his time is running out, he will use schemes, lies and deceit to lure true believers into hell damnation; let us search the scriptures to know more of the will of the Father and follow after his will; if we get confused about his words, we have the grace to pray and asked for the Holy Spirits wisdom, knowledge and understanding of his words; also, we can seek wisdom from other believers in the faith of his righteousness; but let us not follow blindly paths of an'-ti-christ; for each and everyone of us will someday stand before the judgment seat to answer for ourselves; today, Jesus is standing at the doors of our hearts knocking, if we hear him, let us open our doors and let him in to teach us the truth about himself, his kingdom on earth and heavenly places forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
