1 John 2:18–Dear children, this is the last hour and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.
In this verse, antichrist refers to being “against” Christ. Just like now, as we continue into the last days, John was faced with several people and ideas that were against Christ. Do we readily identify those things that are against Christ or do we get deceived? We must follow God and keep our eyes on Him and not be distracted and turned away by al the things out there that are against Christ.
Father, there are so many “antichrists” out in our world today pulling me and trying to entice me to stop looking at You. I will focus on You today and remember to follow only You.
