John is not against us learning from preaching and teaching (thankfully!) but warning us against those who are leading people astray through spiritual experiences that at the same time dethrone Jesus Christ. Now he affirms our position and has confidence that we will not be deceived.
“As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.” (1 John 2 v 27)
As for you. Are you in the Church?
The anointing. What has been your experience of the Holy Spirit so far in your life?
Remains in you. Is your Holy Spirit experience fresh, known daily and alive today?
You do not need. Are there areas in your life that chase after quick solutions because they are not submitted to what you have known from the beginning?
Teach you. Can you recognise the personalities who deceive?
Teaches you. How is the Holy Spirit continuing to teach you today?
Taught you. How do you know what is real and what is not?
Remain in him. How is the Holy Spirit helping you remain in Jesus today?
