Book 62 1 John 001:001 That which was from the beginning, that which we have heard, that which we have seen with our eyes, that which we saw, and our hands touched, concerning the Word of life 001:002 (and the life was revealed, and we have seen, and testify, and declare to you the life, the eternal life, which was with the Father, and was revealed to us); 001:003 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us. Yes, and our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 001:004 And we write these things to you, that our joy may be fulfilled. 001:005 This is the message which we have heard from him and announce to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 001:006 If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and don't tell the truth. 001:007 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanses us from all sin. 001:008 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 001:009 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 001:010 If we say that we haven't sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 002:001 My little children, I write these things to you so that you may not sin. If anyone sins, we have a Counselor{Greek Parakleton: Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, and Comfortor.} with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous. 002:002 And he is the atoning sacrifice{"atoning sacrifice" is from the Greek "hilasmos," an appeasing, propitiating, or the means of appeasement or propitiation the sacrifice that turns away God's wrath because of our sin.} for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the whole world. 002:003 This is how we know that we know him: if we keep his commandments. 002:004 One who says, "I know him," and doesn't keep his commandments, is a liar, and the truth isn't in him. 002:005 But whoever keeps his word, God's love has most certainly been perfected in him. This is how we know that we are in him: 002:006 he who says he remains in him ought himself also to walk just like he walked. 002:007 Brothers, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning. 002:008 Again, I write a new commandment to you, which is true in him and in you; because the darkness is passing away, and the true light already shines. 002:009 He who says he is in the light and hates his brother, is in the darkness even until now. 002:010 He who loves his brother remains in the light, and there is no occasion for stumbling in him. 002:011 But he who hates his brother is in the darkness, and walks in the darkness, and doesn't know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. 002:012 I write to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake. 002:013 I write to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, little children, because you know the Father. 002:014 I have written to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God remains in you, and you have overcome the evil one. 002:015 Don't love the world, neither the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the Father's love isn't in him... Continue reading book >>
