Our Anointing - The Holy Spirit


In his first epistle John wrote

As for you, the anointing (to chrisma) which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. (1 John 2:27)
