Overcoming Deception

1. Know the times.

      2:18     It is the last hour


2. Know the threat.

    False teachers in the first center. . .

  • Denied that Jesus was really God
  • Denied that Jesus was really human
  • Denied that Jesus really came from heaven
  • Denied that Jesus is the Messiah - God's Savior/King
  • Taught things that made God out to be a liar
  • Were former church leaders who left the fellowship

     Modern day false religions refer to Jesus. . .

  • as a prophet and nothing more
  • as created and not from heaven
  • as a good person and not the Son of God
  • as a spirit child born alongside his brother Lucifer, who became Satan
  • as someone who died. . .but not for the sins of the entire world

3. Know the truth.

      2:14   You are strong and the word of God lives in you

      2:24    Let what you have heard from the beginning abide in you

      2:20    You have been anointed by the Holy One

      2:27    The anointing you have received from him abides in you

      2:27    His anointing teaches you about everything and is true
