Whoever Acknowledges THE SON and THE FATHER Has Eternal Life

1 John 2:1-29 NIV

1My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, 

we have 

An Advocate With The FATHER—JESUS CHRIST, The 


2 HE Is The Atoning Sacrifice for our sins, and not only 

for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

Love and Hatred for Fellow Believers

3We know that we have come to know HIM if we keep HIS Commands. 4Whoever says, “I know HIM,” but does not do What HE Commands is a liar, and The Truth is not in that person. 5But if anyone obeys HIS WORD, love For GOD is truly made complete in them.

This is how we know we are In HIM: 

6 Whoever claims to live In HIM must live As JESUS 


7Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning. This Old Command is the message you have heard. 8Yet I am writing you a New Command; its truth is seen In HIM and in you, because the darkness is passing and the True Light is already shining.

9Anyone who claims to be in the Light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. 10Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the Light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. 11But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.

Reasons for Writing

12I am writing to you, dear children,
because your sins have been forgiven on account of HIS Name.
13I am writing to you, fathers,
because you know HIM WHO Is from the beginning.
I am writing to you, young men,
because you have overcome the evil one.
14I write to you, dear children,
because you know The FATHER.
I write to you, fathers,
because you know HIM WHO Is from the beginning.
I write to you, young men,
because you are strong,
and The WORD of GOD Lives in you,
and you have overcome the evil one.

On Not Loving the World

15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for The FATHER is not in them.

16 For everything in the world—

the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life

comes not from The FATHER but from the world. 

17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever 

does The Will of GOD lives forever.

Warnings Against Denying The SON

18Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 

19They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.

20 But you have an Anointing From The HOLY ONE, and all of you know The Truth. 21I do not write to you because you do not know The Truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from The Truth.

22 Who is the liar?

It is whoever denies that JESUS Is The CHRIST. Such 

person is the antichrist—denying The FATHER and 

The SON. 

23 No one who denies The SON has The FATHER; 

whoever acknowledges The SON has The FATHER 


24As for you, see that what you have heard from the 

beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will 

remain in The SON and in The FATHER. 

25 And This Is What HE Promised us

Eternal Life.
