The American Wisdom Series1 John 2:26
Pamphlet 1551 1 John kc 3-3
Do not be seduced as Eve was in the beginning
These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
Again, if you are one of God's elect with the anointing of the Holy Spirit then you already know what happened in the garden concerning the "seduction" of Eve, and who it really was that crucified Jesus Christ, and who those Jews are in Rev. 2:9 and 3:9 that call themselves of Judah but do lie and are of the synagogue of Satan!
You "little ones" are well aware of the presence of the kenites, but you see, John is writing to you because "it is now the last time" and you better be aware how the seductions are "going down" and know that YOU will be one his main targets for those fiery darts spoken of by Paul in Ephesians 6.
We will find out later in this epistle that we have nothing to fear from any of this as long as we abide in His love, for love has no fear.
Just understand that the "seduction" will be the same as it always has been, even from the beginning!
Note: Remember also how quickly the USS COLE, "The Determined Warrior", was blind-sided by the enemy when it was "low on fuel (oil)" and headed into a foreign port.
Ok John, how about telling us more about who these seducing "liars" are!
"Abnegate" means to renounce! We are talking about someone who "works against" Christianity and not only rejects Jesus Christ but renounces Him.1 John 2:22
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
denieth = arneomai, ar-neh'-om-ahee, Greek 720; perhaps from Greek 1 (a) (as a negative particle) and the middle of Greek 4483 (rheo); to contradict, i.e. disavow, reject, abnegate :- deny, refuse.
1 John 2:23
Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
That "liar" has another father who is the father of liars.
Do you understand what John is saying here?
Their rock is not our Rock (Deut 32:31).
Their god is not our God.
Their father is not our Father.
Satan is coming as the spurious messiah, he is not Jesus Christ although he will claim to be.
Do not be seduced as Eve was in the beginning. Be wiser than the serpent and understand his slick (subtil) seducing methods and endure through the tribulation of antichrist unto the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
If you do, you shall receive an unbelievable reward which He has promised you!
1 John 2:25
And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
They are antichrist, Satan, and his children, the children of darkness.
1 John 2:27
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
So stick to the same truth that you began to learn from beginning when that anointing took place, when you received the Holy Spirit and your eyes were opened and you began to fellowship with Jesus Christ, the Word of God, which is Truth.
That same Holy Spirit will continue to teach you as long as "you shall abide in Him, i.e. stay grounded in His Word.
 And now, little children, abide in Him;
... that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at his coming.
We know the difference between light and darkness, between the children of the day and the children of the night, between the truth of Father's Word and the lies of their father's traditions.
We shall remain steadfast in His Word and we shall in no wise be ashamed when Christ returns because we will still be spiritual virgins and will not have been seduced by antichrist.
1 John 2:29
If ye know that He is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.
It is those who do the will of God who shall receive it.
Everything else in this world "shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements [evil rudiments - the lusts thereof] shall melt with fervent heat...(2 Peter 3:10)."
1 John 2:17
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
