Plural and Current

today's reading.
1 John 2:18-28    Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour...

Although we're not in Revelation this weekend, we are still hearing from John and he talks to us about antichrists. Last week in Revelation we looked at and read about "the Antichrist" (capital "A" and singular). But here in 1 John 2:18-28 John uses the term antichrists (lowercase "a" and plural) referring to anyone who denies the Father and the Son and that Jesus is the Christ (vs. 22). John warns us about how these antichrists will try to pull us off course and deceive us but then concludes the passage with a little encouragement and the directive to abide in Christ.

So what does 1 John 2:18-28 tell us about antichrists right now? What are some things we can do to stand strong when we have a one-on-one encounter with someone who tries to pull us away from the Lord? Tami W.
