Know Truth from Lies (1 John 2:21-23)
We look at what it means to know the truth. The antichrists are on the scene denying the incarnation of Christ. So it’s vitally important to not only know the truth but be able to defend it against any lie. We look at the kinds of truth that the church must know and confess. An exposition of 1 John 2:21-23.
Warning of the Antichrist (1 John 2:18-20)
A sign of the last days is that there are many antichrists that are a precursor to THE antichrist spoken of in Daniel and other passages. Who are the antichrists? What are their characteristics? What is the spirit of the antichrist? We answer these questions and more. An exposition of 1 John 2:18-20.
Do Not Love the World (1 John 2:15-17)
What does loving the world mean? How do our choices in life draw us into a love for the world? John’s command to “not love the world” is another test of whether someone is an authentic Christian or an imposter. An exposition of 1 John 2:15-17.
Three Stages of Growth (1 John 2:12-14)
John writes to three groups of believers in this letter. Children, young men, and Fathers are at various stages of their Christian life. Each group has qualities and characteristics that demonstrate their level of spiritual growth. Daily we all should be striving to grow in our knowledge and become mature in our faith. An exposition of 1 John 2:12-14.
Love the Brethren (1 John 2:7-11)
The greatest commandment that Christ gave His disciples was that they love God and their neighbor. This passage drives home the idea that those who are truly in Christ will have a deep abiding love for their brothers and sisters. The counterfeits and imposters are known because of their hatred for the brethren. They say they love Jesus but their actions prove otherwise. An exposition of 1 John 2:7-11.
Evidence of Faith, Part 2 (1 John 2:6)
There is a difference between true and false converts. John tells us how to know the difference between the two, and only those that “abide” in Him are His followers. They walk as Jesus walked because they love Him and have a desire to follow him. Imposters only say that they follow Him, but their actions tell a different story. An exposition of 1 John 2:6.
