Antichrists have appeared and come out from the believers, showing that is is the last hour and that they were not true believers.
True believers are anointed from the Holy One and know the truth.
Antichrists have appeared and left the true Christians who know the truth.
Antichrists deny both the Father and the Son.
The anointing resides in believers and teaches them all things, therefore believers should reside in him.
Believers should remain in Him, so that they will have no shame when He comes back.
Believers can remain in the Son and in the Father by keeping the gospel teachings.
Antichrists deny Jesus. True Christians have the promise of eternal life and reside in the Father and in the Son.
John informs his readers about antichrists who have appeared and deny the Father and the Son. His readers, the true Christians, however, know the truth and have eternal life as they reside in the Father and the Son.

A. Antichrists Have Appeared
Children, it is the last hour;
and just as you heard that antichrist is coming,
even now many antichrists have appeared;
from this we know that it is the last hour.
They went out from us,
but they were not really of us;
for if they had been of us,
they would have remained with us;
but they went out,
so that it would be shown that they all are not of us.
B. True Christians Know the Truth
But you have an anointing from the Holy One,
and you all know.
I have not written to you because you do not know the truth,
but because you do know it,
and because no lie is of the truth.
A'. Antichrists Deny the Father and the Son
Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ?
This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.
Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father;
the one who confesses the Son has the Father also.
B'. True Christians Have Eternal Life
As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning.
If what you heard from the beginning abides in you,
you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
This is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life.
These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you.
As for you, the anointing 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.
Now, little children, abide in Him,
so that when He appears,
we may have confidence
and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming.
If you know that He is righteous,
you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him.

καὶ ὑμεῖς τὸ χρῖσμα ὃ ἐλάβετε ἀπʼ αὐτοῦ, μένει ἐν ὑμῖν
As for you, the anointing 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.
Und die Salbung, die ihr von ihm empfangen habt, bleibt in euch, und ihr bedürfet nicht, daß euch jemand lehre; sondern so, wie euch die Salbung selbst über alles belehrt, ist es wahr und keine Lüge, und wie sie euch belehrt hat, so bleibet darin!
καὶ οὐ χρείαν ἔχετε
ἵνα τις διδάσκῃ ὑμᾶς,
ἀλλʼ ὡς τὸ αὐτοῦ χρῖσμα διδάσκει ὑμᾶς περὶ πάντων
καὶ ἀληθές ἐστιν
καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ψεῦδος,
καὶ καθὼς ἐδίδαξεν ὑμᾶς,
μένετε ἐν αὐτῷ.
Καὶ νῦν, τεκνία, μένετε ἐν αὐτῷ,
Und nun, Kindlein, bleibet in ihm, damit, wenn er erscheint, wir Freudigkeit haben und uns nicht schämen müssen vor ihm bei seiner Wiederkunft.
Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming.
ἵνα ἐὰν φανερωθῇ
σχῶμεν παρρησίαν
καὶ μὴ αἰσχυνθῶμεν ἀπʼ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ παρουσίᾳ αὐτοῦ.
ἐὰν εἰδῆτε
Wenn ihr wisset, daß er gerecht ist, so erkennet auch, daß jeder, der die Gerechtigkeit übt, von Ihm geboren ist.
If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him.
ὅτι δίκαιός ἐστιν,
γινώσκετε
ὅτι καὶ πᾶς ὁ ποιῶν τὴν δικαιοσύνην ἐξ αὐτοῦ γεγέννηται.
Παιδία, ἐσχάτη ὥρα ἐστίν, καὶ καθὼς ἠκούσατε ὅτι ἀντίχριστος ἔρχεται, καὶ νῦν ἀντίχριστοι πολλοὶ γεγόνασιν, ὅθεν γινώσκομεν ὅτι ἐσχάτη ὥρα ἐστίν.
ἐξ ἡμῶν ἐξῆλθαν ἀλλʼ οὐκ ἦσαν ἐξ ἡμῶν• εἰ γὰρ ἐξ ἡμῶν ἦσαν, μεμενήκεισαν ἂν μεθʼ ἡμῶν• ἀλλʼ ἵνα φανερωθῶσιν ὅτι οὐκ εἰσὶν πάντες ἐξ ἡμῶν.
καὶ ὑμεῖς χρῖσμα ἔχετε ἀπὸ τοῦ ἁγίου καὶ οἴδατε πάντες.
οὐκ ἔγραψα ὑμῖν ὅτι οὐκ οἴδατε τὴν ἀλήθειαν ἀλλʼ ὅτι οἴδατε αὐτὴν καὶ ὅτι πᾶν ψεῦδος ἐκ τῆς ἀληθείας οὐκ ἔστιν.
Τίς ἐστιν ὁ ψεύστης εἰ μὴ ὁ ἀρνούμενος ὅτι Ἰησοῦς οὐκ ἔστιν ὁ χριστός; οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ ἀντίχριστος, ὁ ἀρνούμενος τὸν πατέρα καὶ τὸν υἱόν.
πᾶς ὁ ἀρνούμενος τὸν υἱὸν οὐδὲ τὸν πατέρα ἔχει, ὁ ὁμολογῶν τὸν υἱὸν καὶ τὸν πατέρα ἔχει.
Ὑμεῖς ὃ ἠκούσατε ἀπʼ ἀρχῆς, ἐν ὑμῖν μενέτω. ἐὰν ἐν ὑμῖν μείνῃ ὃ ἀπʼ ἀρχῆς ἠκούσατε, καὶ ὑμεῖς ἐν τῷ υἱῷ καὶ ἐν τῷ πατρὶ μενεῖτε.
καὶ αὕτη ἐστὶν ἡ ἐπαγγελία ἣν αὐτὸς ἐπηγγείλατο ἡμῖν, τὴν ζωὴν τὴν αἰώνιον.
Ταῦτα ἔγραψα ὑμῖν περὶ τῶν πλανώντων ὑμᾶς.
καὶ ὑμεῖς τὸ χρῖσμα ὃ ἐλάβετε ἀπʼ αὐτοῦ, μένει ἐν ὑμῖν καὶ οὐ χρείαν ἔχετε ἵνα τις διδάσκῃ ὑμᾶς, ἀλλʼ ὡς τὸ αὐτοῦ χρῖσμα διδάσκει ὑμᾶς περὶ πάντων καὶ ἀληθές ἐστιν καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ψεῦδος, καὶ καθὼς ἐδίδαξεν ὑμᾶς, μένετε ἐν αὐτῷ.
Καὶ νῦν, τεκνία, μένετε ἐν αὐτῷ, ἵνα ἐὰν φανερωθῇ σχῶμεν παρρησίαν καὶ μὴ αἰσχυνθῶμεν ἀπʼ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ παρουσίᾳ αὐτοῦ.
ἐὰν εἰδῆτε ὅτι δίκαιός ἐστιν, γινώσκετε ὅτι καὶ πᾶς ὁ ποιῶν τὴν δικαιοσύνην ἐξ αὐτοῦ γεγέννηται.
Καὶ νῦν, τεκνία, μένετε ἐν αὐτῷ, ἵνα ἐὰν φανερωθῇ σχῶμεν παρρησίαν καὶ μὴ αἰσχυνθῶμεν ἀπʼ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ παρουσίᾳ αὐτοῦ.
ἐὰν εἰδῆτε ὅτι δίκαιός ἐστιν, γινώσκετε ὅτι καὶ πᾶς ὁ ποιῶν τὴν δικαιοσύνην ἐξ αὐτοῦ γεγέννηται.

I am assuming that all instances of ὅτι in verse 21 introduce a direct object content clause as recommended by the NET Bible.
This may refer to the commandment to love one another (1 John 2:7, 1 John 3:11).

Occurrences 1 John 2:6 - if we say we abide in Him then we live as He lived 1 John 2:10 - when we love our brother, we abide in the light 1 John 2:14 - John writes to young men that the word of God abides in them 1 John 2:17 - we abide forever when we do God's will 1 John 2:19 - if the antichrists were part of the Christians, they would have remained with them 1 John 2:24 - what we have heard from the beginning should abide in us then we abide in the Son and the Father 1 John 2:27 - The anointing abides in us and we are to abide in Him as we have been taught 1 John 2:28 - we are to abide in Him so that we have confidence at the parousia 1 John 3:6 - no one who abides in Him sins (!) 1 John 3:9 - no one born of God practices sin because the His seed abides in him 1 John 3:14 - He who does not love abides in death (!) 1 John 3:15 - no murderer has eternal life abiding in him 1 John 3:17 - the love of God cannot abide in one who closes his heart to his brother 1 John 3:24 - we abide in Him by keeping His commandments.

This is their stand in Christ. They are in Him, and He is in them. At the same time he commands his readers to remain in Christ and gives them ways to do this: by loving one another, doing His will and abiding in what in what one has been taught. He also provides a way for his readers to test if they abide in God: Do they live as He lived? Do they sin? Thus, as Christians we have intimate fellowship with God that is witness by His Spirit dwelling in us. We are called to remain in this fellowship, and this fellowship demands a life that lives as He lived - a life of sanctification and following His will.
