Truth and Deception

I rejoice greatly to find,
Children walking in the truth;
For being gentle and kind,
Instead of being uncouth.

Not as though I was writing,
To you a new commandment;
Rather to be delighting,
Of having a commitment.

The One we have from the start,
That we love one another;
To keep it in our heart,
With each sister and brother.

For this is love that we walk,
From as to what we have heard;
Like the shepherd to His flock,
As commanded in the Word.

Some deceivers have gone out,
Those who would never confess;
A deceiver raising doubt,
That Jesus is the access.

For the antichrist watches,
So that you lose your reward;
Like a vulture he clutches,
His prey away from the Lord.

Whoever does not abide,
In of instructions of Christ;
And allows others to guide,
Are immorally enticed.

If anyone comes to you,
And does not bring this teaching;
Receive not being untrue;
And ignore of his preaching.

Whoever greets him takes part,
Partaker of evil deeds;
Will have a corrupted heart.
That the iniquities feeds.

I wrote to you many things,
But rather talk face to face;
For the wondrous works God brings,
Fill you with joy of His grace.
