1 John 4:2-3

By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.
1 John 4:2‭-‬3 NASB

I confess that Jesus, the Son of God, has come in the flesh from You God my Father. His life was manifested to us by the Father and seen. His disciples and others throughout generations have testified and proclaimed, even today, the eternal life that comes through Jesus Christ. Jesus, You are the Word become flesh, who dwelt among us, and we saw Your glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. Thank You for making it known, through the Word, that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is accursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit. The one who does not confess Jesus is not from God. There is no humbleness in the spirit that opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple (church) of God, displaying himself as being God. Protect me, Your people, Your church from those who have the “spirit of the antichrist”. Lord I pray You help us to recognize them by our knowing and remembering Your teachings. In Jesus, the Living Truth, I ask and pray. Amen.

2 Thessalonians 2:4 NASB

🌹Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.

1 John 3:17-20

But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. We will know by this that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart before Him in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things.
1 John 3:17‭-‬20 NASB

God, You are great!! I draw near to You with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith; please draw near to me. I cleanse my hands before You seeking Your forgiveness for that which condemns me. I then can willingly approach Your throne with a pure heart and clean hands. You know my heart and all things God.
All that I have, Lord is Yours. You have given me all I possess physically and spiritually. God, I pray that I will not close my heart to a brother and/or sister in need. How can I if You are abiding in me? Transform my heart to love in deed and truth. You abundantly bless Lord God. I pray I will freely open my hand to my brothers/sisters in need and  generously lend him/her sufficient for his/her need in whatever he/she lacks. All to and for Your glory! Amen

🌹You shall generously give to him, and your heart shall not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all your undertakings. For the poor will never cease to be in the land; therefore I command you, saying, ‘You shall freely open your hand to your brother, to your needy and poor in your land.’
Deuteronomy 15:10‭-‬11 NASB

1 John 2:26-27

These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.
1 John 2:26‭-‬27 NASB

God, You have not left Your people without discernment, direction, or truth revealed. Father You sent Jesus, Your Son, to make this possible in our life. When Jesus ascended He asked on our behalf to give us a Helper, the Holy Spirit, to be with us forever!! How blessed to have an anointing from the Holy One who lives in us and whom we know. Praise You God for the confidence, security and peace my soul knows because You abide in me and I in you. Holy Spirit, teach me all things and bring to remembrance from Your Holy Word all I have read and studied so I will always abide in You. God, may I know the things You have freely given through Your Spirit. Thank You God for letting me know You and the many blessings that have come by You. I give my life to honor You, my God, by the life You have freely given me. In the glorious name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
John 14:16/1 John 2:20/John 14:26/1 Corinthians 2:12 NASB

🌹that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.

1 John 2:21-24

I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because (know that) no lie is of the truth. Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah)? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also. As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
1 John 2:21‭-‬24 NASB

King Jesus, You entered into the world to testify to the truth. The truth from the very beginning. Thank You, Jesus, for the truth that resides in me enabling me to hear Your voice.  You stated, “Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice”. I trust Your truth.
Help me Lord to be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger.
Thank You God for the truth that has been established in me and is present with me. Through the Holy Spirit of truth residing in me I have fellowship with other believers; and indeed my fellowship is with You Father, and with Your Son Jesus Christ! I love You Jesus and will keep Your word so that the Father and You will love me and come make Your  abode in me. I ask for discernment to recognize the antichrist, remembering the antichrist denies both You Father and Jesus. I praise You for the privilege and honor to know You Jesus and the Father through the Holy Spirit; Three in One.  Glory to my God who has made Himself known to me. In this I rejoice. Amen.
John 18:37/James 1:19/2 Peter 1:12/1 John 1:3/John 14:23/John 8:19 NASB

🌹This is the antichrist
and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.

🌹This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

1 John 2:4

The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him;
1 John 2:4 NASB

Lord, draw me to true understanding of this verse today as I meditate on Your word. Reveal to me whether Your truth is in me and I know You or whether I am making You a liar.
There are many rebellious people, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of professing faith. They profess to know You, God, but by their deeds they deny You, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed. Forgive me for any deceiving way or disobedience in me. Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my thoughts; And see if there be any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting. In the name of Jesus I ask and pray, amen.
Titus 1:10/Titus 1:16 NASB/Psalms 139:23‭-‬24

1 John 2:8,10

If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.
1 John 1:8‭, ‬10 NASB

Holy, righteous, irreproachable, just God. You are worthy of reverent praise for You are sinless, matchless and a faithful God!
Who can say, “I have cleansed my heart, I am pure from my sin”? Certainly not I Lord. Forgive me for every time I think that I am able or the “one” who is without sin, self-righteous in my own eyes and yet deceiving myself. For it is written, “There is none righteous, not even one”. Cover me in the righteousness of my Savior who died for me so that I may walk in righteousness for His name sake. I have received His testimony and set my seal to this, that God is true. Your word is in me and I confess Your righteousness as the truth for all mankind. You are not a liar. Your word is truth! Hallelujah!! Amen.
Proverbs 20:9/Romans 3:10/John 3:33 NASB

🌹Thank you, Father, for the Word, Jesus, living in me through Your Holy Spirit!

Search Me, Try Me

Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.
Psalms 139:23‭-‬24 NASB

Examine me, O Lord, and try me; Test my mind and my heart. As You have declared Lord God. “Repent and turn away from all your transgressions, so that iniquity may not become a stumbling block to you”, I turn now from every evil way in me. Help me amend my deeds and seek no other God but You. Incline my ear to listen to You Lord God. O Lord, lead me in Your righteousness and make my way straight before me. Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul. Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground. For the sake of Your name, O Lord, revive me. In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble. In the glorious name of Jesus, amen.
(Psalms 26:2/Ezekiel 18:30/Jeremiah 35:15/Psalms 5:8/Psalms 143:8‭, ‬10‭-‬11 NASB)

Attention to the Word – Part 1

He who gives attention to the word will find good,
Proverbs 16:20a NASB

The Bible is the word of God, the story of Jesus Christ. The Word is a person. Jesus Christ.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:1 NASB

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NASB

How much attention do you give to the Word? The word of God? It is impossible to know God intimately without reading the Bible, God’s word.

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
Romans 10:17 NASB

The word of Christ. The Word who brings forgiveness, salvation, life and so much more.

🌹O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
Psalms 34:8 NASB

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within me, with all wisdom. I will read Your word, teaching and admonishing others in the faith with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. I will sing with thankfulness in my heart to You, my God. (Colossians 3:16 NASB)
This I pray in the name of Jesus,  amen.

We are chosen of God, holy and beloved, so let’s put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience and . . .
