Scripture:
“And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.

I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.” ~2 John 1:6-7

Observation:
Several criteria are given in different places for identifying those who are anti-Christ. Not acknowledging that Jesus came in the flesh is the one given here. The language of these verses seem mean that a denial of Jesus’ physical body isn’t necessary, just a failure to acknowledge it.

Application:
Care must be taken to be certain that nothing I say could be construed to not acknowledge that Jesus had a real, physical, human, earth body. I also must be sure that I don’t take the teaching of anyone who doesn’t acknowledge this as well.

Prayer:
Jesus, I’m not one-hundred percent sure why acknowledging that You had a real body is so important, but I suspect it has to do with the “realness” of the suffering You endured on my behalf. I will never deny and will do my best to always affirm my belief that You physically existed as a human. Help me through Your Spirit to obey Your commands and walk in love.
