The Apostle John lived in the midst of a savage persecution. Many of God’s churches were being taken over by traitors. When he wrote his epistles, John thought it was “the last hour” before Christ’s Second Coming. In fact, it was only a type of our time today. Every detail of what John prophesied is now being fulfilled! John’s “last hour” epistles are mainly for God’s end-time Church!
