THE MESSAGE

THOUGHTS FROM THE EPISTLES OF JOHN

1.WALK

I John 2:6,9 I John 3:3

The Lord wants us to walk in love,in light and in righteousness. It is a sad testimony when God’s children do not walk in love towards one another. when we walk in love we walk in the light.We must walk in righteousness when we follow the Lord.

2.WARNING

I John 2:18,19 I John 4:1 II John 10-11

The Lord warns us to beware of the antichrist, the false prophets and false doctrines that will be rampant in the last days. We must be vigilant lest we be deceived by the devil. We must not be ignorant and gullible to beleive everyone who may appear to a saint and a prophet. We must be firm and not allow the deceivers even to visit our homes and confuse us with their false teachings.

3.WISDOM

I John 2:27,20

The Lord wants us to depend on His anointing to discern the truth from falsehood.Mere Human wisdom is insufficient to thwart the viles of the devil.It is the anointing from God which abides in us which will teach us the right way and help us to recognise the enemy’s plan.

4.WILL OF GOD

I John 5:14 I John 3:22 I John 2:17

The Lord wants us to live according to His will in order to enjoy and experience the fullness of His blessings. We can receive whatever we ask according to His will. We will abide forever and remain unshaken when we do the will of God.

5.WORD OF GOD

I John 2:5 I John 1:1

The Lord wants us to be guided and led according to His word.His commandments and promises are revealed in His Word. We must study the Word of God to learn His ways.When we live according to His Word we can experience great blessings and avoid needless agony.

6.WELL-BEING

III John 2

The Lord wants us to enjoy well-being.When God created Man His desire and plan was for them to enjoy good health and strength. But Sin brought disease and pain to mankind. But through the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ we are enabled to enjoy God’s blessing of health and strength. Jesus continously healed the sick during his time in this earth and thus revealed God’s will and desire for man to enjoy good health and strength.

7.WEALTH

III John 2

The Lord wants us to enjoy His wealth which He has provided for us. He is our provider and He has promised to meet our needs. We should not be coveteous and full of greed. But we can depend upon God to supply all our need according to His riches in glory.
