Lesson 11: Antichrists Desert the Church (1 John 2:18-20)Related Media
Sometimes you can learn a great deal about people simply by watching where they go. So it is with those related in some way to the church. It might seem for a season that an individual is connected to the body of Christ and desires fellowship therein, but over time it becomes clear that intentions are quite otherwise. Judas Iscariot was perhaps the earliest example of such a person—someone who was physically present with Jesus and the rest of the disciples but who ended up showing that he was in every way against the Lord (or anti Christ). As anyone considers the reality of this problem, he rightly should look to his own heart and ask, “Am I committed to Christ and His body?” Pastor Daniel brings perspective to this topic by stating, “I remain in Christ because of His anointing.” Over the course of this message and the next, he unpacks this truth from 1 John 2.
