Thursday of the Fourth Week in Advent
1 John 2:18-29
We are in the final times. Whatever hour you are in right now, there is a spiritual sense that it is part of the last hour as expressed by John in verse 18. While we cannot predict just when the actual end will come, it has already begun with what took place on the last day of the old creation, Good Friday.
The anointing of the Holy Spirit gives you all you need to know about what to do. What an assertion in verse 20: “You know all things!” This is due to the anointing—gift of the Holy Spirit.
In order to access this knowledge, you need a life of prayer, union with other wise persons who are also under the anointing, and a total desire to dedicate yourself to the Lord. Trust that the Lord will indeed speak to you heart. Be willing to filter out everything else, so that you can hear.
Thursdays are dedicated to the New Testament, except the Gospels. During the seasons of Advent to Epiphany this year, we read the three letters of John.
