1st John Chapter 2

1 John 2:1 My children, I write these things to you because I do not want you to sin. But if one of you does sin, he can be sure that we have Someone with the Father who asks God to forgive us, and that Person is Jesus Christ, the One who did not sin.

1 John 2:2 Jesus is the way our sins are taken away.  Jesus did not take away only our sins. But Jesus also took away the sins of all the people in the world.

1st john 2:3 If we obey what God has told us to do, then we are sure that we know him.

1 1 John 2:4 If people say they know God, but they don’t do what God says, they lie and they do not accept the truth.

1 John 2:5 But if people do what God tells them to do, God love is truly working in the. This is how we know that we are living in him.

1 John 2:6 If people say they belong to God, we must live the way Jesus lived.

1 John 2;7 Dear friends, I am not writing a new command to you. It is the same command that you have had since the beginning. This command is the teaching that you have already heard.

1 John 2:8 But there is something new about this law. You can see this truth in Jesus and in yourselves. The darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining.

1 John 2:9 If people say that they live in the light of God, but they hate other believers, then those people still live in the dark.

1 John 2:10 If people love other believers, then they live in the light and there is nothing in them that will make them do wrong.

1 john 2:11 If people hate other believers, then they live in the dark. They are like people who walk in the dark and they do not know where they are going because they cannot see in the dark.

1 John 2:12 I write to you, dear children, because your sins are forgiven through Christ.

1 john 2:13 I am writing to you fathers, those believers and are spiritually mature, because you know God who has existed from the beginning. I am writing to you, young people, those believers who are growing in spiritual maturity, because you have been victorious and have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, those who are new believers, those spiritually immature, because you have come to know the Father.

1 John 2: I have written to you fathers, the mature ones, because you know God who has existed from the beginning. I have written to you, young people, because you are strong, and the word of God remains in you, and you have been victorious over the evil one.

1 John 2:15 You must not love this sinful world or the things that are in this world. If you love this sinful world, then you do not love the Father.

1 John 2:16 This is all there is in the world: wanting to please our sinful selves, wanting the sinful things we see, and being too proud of what we have. But none of these comes from the Father. They come from the world.

1 John 2:17 The world is passing away, and all the things that people want in the world are passing away. But whoever does what God want will live forever.

1John 2:18 My dear children, the end is near! You have heard that the antichrist is coming. And now many antichrist are already here. So, we know that the end is near.

1John 2:19 These enemies were in our group, but they left us. They did not really belong with us. If they were really part of our group, they would have stayed with us. But they left. This shows that none of them really belonged with us.

1John 2:20 But you have an anointing from the Holy, and all of you know.

1John 2:21 I write this letter to you, not because you don’t know the truth, but because you know the truth and you know that something that is true now cannot later become a lie.

1John 2:22 So who is the liar? It is the one who says Jesus is not the Messiah. He the liar is the antichrist; he is the one who does not believe in the Father or in his Son.

1John 2:23 Whoever does not believe in the Son does not have the Father, but whoever accepts the Son has the Father too.

1John 2:24 As for you, let what you have heard from the beginning remain in you. If it does, you will also remain in the Son and in the Father.

1John 2:25 And this is what the Jesus has promised us, eternal life.

1John 2:26 I am writing this letter about those who are trying to lead you into the wrong way.

1John 2:27 Remember that Jesus has anointed you with the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit is in you. That is why you do not need other people to teach you. Jesus has anointed you with the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit teaches you everything that you must know. He speaks the truth, and He does not lie. He teaches you to live with Jesus and you must do that.

1John 2:28 Yes, my dear children, live in him. If we do this, we can be without fear on the day when Christ comes again. We will not need to hide and be ashamed when he comes.

1John 2:29 You know that Christ always did what was right. So you know that all those who do what is right are God’s children.
