Pseudomai liar versus the Anointing

"Whosoever believes in the name of Jesus has eternal life" This is the central theme and message of John in his first circular epistle. 

He writes in reaction to false teachers bringing false doctrine against the Gospel of Grace to the early church. He preaches against intellectual and perverse interpretation of the Truth.

His message is for the church and is real and relevant even today.

"Who is a liar, except the one denying that יהושע is the Messiah? This is the anti-messiah, the one denying the Father and the Son." 1Jn 2:22

John really exposes the lie (Greek word for lie: pseudomai or pseudo-truth) by defining the one who makes application of it. He says the pseustēs (liar: pretentious or insincere, false, faux, spurious, counterfeit, fraudulent, deceptive, misleading, assumed one) is the one who denies that Jesus IS the Anointing (Christ or in Hebrew Meshiach or Messiah).

What is the Christ?

Not what! 


Christos is the Anointing, the Messiah, the One abiding within. He is the very Spirit of the One Who came to Save. The One we refer to as God our Salvation, Yah'shua, Yah Who Saves! 

The One who abides within. 

The One Who says He can not get any closer to you - He is in your heart and in your mouth! (Rom 10:8)

Denying that He was physically raised and moreover, denying the He abides within, is utter blasphemy, heresy and false doctrine.

The Good News

The Good news, John says, is that you have the anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. 1Jn 2:20

Do not deny this precious truth.

To deny this simple fact is to be an antichrist! 

In his Gospel John describes in chapters 14, 15 and 16 how that Jesus took great care and time to explain that He would not leave us behind orphans when He went to the cross and beyond, but that He would in fact leave us His abiding Spirit, His Anointing to care for and embrace us and remind us of all that He has taught and even show us things to come.

Where is the Anointing?

So, John makes it crystal clear in his epistle:

"But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him." 1Jn 2:27

How precious is that?

You do not, and should not, have to rely on anyone other that the Holy Spirit Himself to teach you ...

... and as He teaches you ...

... you and Him abide in each other and become one!

Precious, precious Anointing!
