You need to order them by date, and set count to 1. Then you will get one post and it will be the most recent.

Thank you so much for the help,

I do have another question how can I remove the next button on the show post ? or do I have to modify the template to remove it ?

Thank you and God Bless,

Yes, you can just remove it from the template.
