Book 62 1 John 001:001 That which was from the beginning, which we have listened to, which we have seen with our own eyes, and our own hands have handled concerning the Word of Life 001:002 the Life was manifested, and we have seen and bear witness, and we declare unto you the Life of the Ages which was with the Father and was manifested to us 001:003 that which we have seen and listened to we now announce to you also, in order that you also may have fellowship in it with us, and this fellowship with us is fellowship with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. 001:004 And we write these things in order that our joy may be made complete. 001:005 This is the Message which we have heard from the Lord Jesus and now deliver to you God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness. 001:006 If, while we are living in darkness, we profess to have fellowship with Him, we speak falsely and are not adhering to the truth. 001:007 But if we live in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, cleanses us from all sin. 001:008 If we claim to be already free from sin, we lead ourselves astray and the truth has no place in our hearts. 001:009 If we confess our sins, He is so faithful and just that He forgives us our sins and cleanses us from all unrighteousness. 001:010 If we deny that we have sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Message has no place in our hearts. 002:001 Dear children, I write thus to you in order that you may not sin. If any one sins, we have an Advocate with the Father Jesus Christ the righteous; 002:002 and He is an atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 002:003 And by this we may know that we know Him if we obey His commands. 002:004 He who professes to know Him, and yet does not obey His commands, is a liar, and the truth has no place in his heart. 002:005 But whoever obeys His Message, in him love for God has in very deed reached perfection. By this we can know that we are in Him. 002:006 The man who professes to be continuing in Him is himself also bound to live as He lived. 002:007 My dearly loved friends, it is no new command that I am now giving you, but an old command which you have had from the very beginning. By the old command I mean the teaching which you have already received. 002:008 And yet I am giving you a new command, for such it really is, so far as both He and you are concerned: because the darkness is now passing away and the light, the true light, is already beginning to shine. 002:009 Any one who professes to be in the light and yet hates his brother man is still in darkness. 002:010 He who loves his brother man continues in the light, and his life puts no stumbling block in the way of others. 002:011 But he who hates his brother man is in darkness and is walking in darkness; and he does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes. 002:012 I am writing to you, dear children, because for His sake your sins are forgiven you. 002:013 I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has existed from the very beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the Evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father. 002:014 I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has existed from the very beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong and God's Message still has a place in your hearts, and you have overcome the Evil one. 002:015 Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If any one loves the world, there is no love in his heart for the Father... Continue reading book >>
