Just as light is opposite of dark and right from wrong, the children of God will stand out. There are those who will continue in sin til the end while those who love Gods righteousness will stand out for a different reason as they will shine as a light for the truth of the gospel. (1 John 3:7-10). Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
There are people who believe we are all Gods children and it is so, and although we were created in his image man has free will to follow the one known as the father of lies and is not to be compared in no way to the Father of light!!! (John 8:42-47)…(James 1:17-19). Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
In the final days of the end times we will clearly know who truly is for Christ, and who although claim to be of the faith and were not really ever of us in the body of Christ. (1 John 2:18,19). Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. We are not left out of knowing how to recognize how the last days will be, for it is outlined for us in 2 Timothy 3:1-7 and Matthew 24.
Our Father loves us and does not want us to be deceived! 1 John 2:22…….2 John 7. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
