But you have received the Messiah's anointing from HaKadosh, and you know all this.
It is not because you don't know the truth that I have written to you, but because you do know it, and because no lie has its origin in the truth.
Who is a liar at all, if not the person who denies that Yeshua is the Messiah? Such a person is an anti-Messiah - he is denying the Father and the Son.
Everyone who denies the Son is also without the Father, but the person who acknowledges the Son has the Father as well.
Let what you heard from the beginning remain in you. If what you heard from the beginning remains in you, you will also remain in union with both the Son and the Father.
And this is what he has promised us: eternal life.
I have written you these things about the people who are trying to deceive you.
As for you, the Messianic anointing you received from the Father remains in you, so that you have no need for anyone to teach you. On the contrary, as his Messianic anointing continues to teach you about all things, and is true, not a counterfeit, so, just as he taught you, remain united with him.
And now, children, remain united with him; so that when he appears, we may have confidence and not shrink back from him in shame at his coming.
