¶ 1 John 1 v1-4

{ heart }   [1J] 1v1

THAT WHICH was from the beginning,
WHICH we have heard,
WHICH we have seen with our eyes,
WHICH we have looked upon,
and our hands have handled of the WORD of life

{ heart }   [1J] 1v2

(For the LIFE was manifested, and we have seen IT,
and bear witness, and show unto you
that eternal LIFE WHICH was with the FATHER,
and was manifested unto us.)

{ heart }   [1J] 1v3

THAT WHICH we have seen and heard,
declare we unto you,
that ye also may have fellowship with us;
and truly our fellowship is with the FATHER,
and with HIS SON JESUS CHRIST.

{ heart }   [1J] 1v4

And these things write we unto you,
that your joy may be full.

¶ 1 John 1 v5-10

{ heart }   [1J] 1v5

This then is the message
which we have heard of HIM, and declare unto you,

 ‘That GOD is light, and in HIM is no darkness at all’.

{ heart }   [1J] 1v6

If we say

 ‘That we have fellowship with HIM’ 

And walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth.

{ heart }   [1J] 1v7

But if we walk in the light, as HE is in the light,
we have fellowship one with another,
and the blood of JESUS CHRIST HIS SON
cleanseth us from all sin.

{ heart }   [1J] 1v8

If we say

 ‘That we have no sin,’ 

We deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

{ heart }   [1J] 1v9

If we confess our sins,
HE is faithful, and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

{ heart }   [1J] 1v10

If we say

 ‘That we have not sinned,’ 

We make HIM a liar, and HIS word is not in us.

» 1 John 2

¶ 1 John 2 v1-2

{ heart }   [1J] 2v1

My little children, these things write I unto you,
that ye sin not. And if any man sin,
we have an ADVOCATE with the FATHER,
JESUS CHRIST the RIGHTEOUS:

{ heart }   [1J] 2v2

And HE is the PROPITIATION for our sins:
and not for ours only,
but also for the sins of the whole world.

¶ 1 John 2 v3-11

{ heart }   [1J] 2v3

And hereby we do know that we know HIM,
if we keep HIS commandments.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v4

He that saith,

 ‘I know HIM,’ 

And keepeth not HIS commandments,
is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v5

But who so keepeth HIS word,
in him verily is the love of GOD perfected:
hereby5 know we that we are in HIM.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v6

He that saith he abideth in HIM,
ought himself also so to walk, even as HE walked.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v7

Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you,
but an old commandment
which ye had from the beginning:
the old commandment is the word
which ye have heard from the beginning.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v8

Again, a new commandment I write unto you,
which thing is true in HIM and in you:
because the darkness is past,
and the true light now shineth.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v9

He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother,
is in darkness even until now.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v10

He that loveth his brother abideth in the light,
and there is no occasion of stumbling in him.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v11

But he that hateth his brother is in darkness,
and walketh in darkness,
and knoweth not whither he goeth,
because darkness hath blinded his eyes.

¶ 1 John 2 v12-17

{ heart }   [1J] 2v12

I write unto you, little children,
because your sins are forgiven you
for HIS NAME'S sake.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v13

I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known HIM
THAT is from the beginning.
I write unto you, young men,
because ye have overcome the Wicked One.
I write unto you, little children,
because ye have known the FATHER.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v14

I have written unto you, fathers,
because ye have known HIM
THAT is from the beginning.
I have written unto you, young men,
because ye are strong,
and the word of GOD abideth in you,
and ye have overcome the Wicked One.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v15

Love not the world,
neither the things that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the FATHER is not in him.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v16

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life,
is not of the FATHER, but is of the world.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v17

And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will of GOD abideth forever.

¶ 1 John 2 v18-27

{ heart }   [1J] 2v18

Little children, it is the last time:
and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come,
even now are there many antichrists;
whereby we know that it is the last time.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v19

They went out from us, but they were not of us;
for if they had been of us,
they would no doubt have continued with us:
but they went out, that they might be made manifest
that they were not all of us.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v20

But ye have an unction from the HOLY ONE,
and ye know all things.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v21

I have not written unto you
because ye know not the truth,
but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v22

Who is a liar but he that denieth that JESUS
is the CHRIST?
He is antichrist, that denieth the FATHER
and the SON.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v23

Whosoever denieth the SON,
the same hath not the FATHER:
(but) he that acknowledgeth the SON
hath the FATHER also.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v24

Let that therefore abide in you,
which ye have heard from the beginning.
If that which ye have heard from the beginning
shall remain in you,
ye also shall continue in the SON,
and in the FATHER.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v25

And this is the promise that HE hath promised us,
even eternal life.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v26

These things have I written unto you
concerning them that seduce you.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v27

But the anointing which ye have received of HIM
abideth in you,
and ye need not that any man teach you:
but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things,
and is truth, and is no lie,
and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in HIM.

¶ 1 John 2 v28-29

{ heart }   [1J] 2v28

And now, little children, abide in HIM;
that, when HE shall appear, we may have confidence,
and not be ashamed before HIM at HIS coming.

{ heart }   [1J] 2v29

If ye know that HE is righteous,
ye know that every one that doeth righteousness
is born of HIM.

» 1 John 3

¶ 1 John 3 v1-2

{ heart }   [1J] 3v1

Behold, what manner of love
the FATHER hath bestowed upon us,
that we should be called

 ‘The sons of GOD:’ 

Therefore the world knoweth us not,
because it knew HIM not.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v2

Beloved, now are we the sons of GOD,
and it doth not yet appear what we shall be,
but we know that, when HE shall appear,
we shall be like HIM; for we shall see HIM as HE is

¶ 1 John 3 v3-6

{ heart }   [1J] 3v3

And every man that hath this hope in him
purifieth himself, even as HE is pure.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v4

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law:
for sin is the transgression of the law.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v5

And ye know that HE was manifested
to take away our sins; and in HIM is no sin.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v6

Whosoever abideth in HIM sinneth not:
whosoever sinneth hath not seen HIM,
neither known HIM.

¶ 1 John 3 v7-18

{ heart }   [1J] 3v7

Little children, let no man deceive you:
he that doeth righteousness is righteous,
even as HE is righteous.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v8

He that committeth sin is of the Devil;
for the Devil sinneth from the beginning.
For this purpose the SON of GOD was manifested,
that HE might destroy the works of the Devil.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v9

Whosoever is born of GOD doth not commit sin;
for HIS seed remaineth in him:
and he cannot sin, because he is born of GOD.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v10

In this the children of GOD are manifest,
and the children of the Devil:
whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of GOD,
neither he that loveth not his brother.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v11

For this is the message
that ye heard from the beginning,


That we should love one another.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v12

Not as Cain, who was of That Wicked One,
and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him?
Because his own works were evil,
and his brother's righteous.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v13

Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v14

We know that we have passed from death unto life,
because we love the brethren.
He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v15

Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer:
and ye know that no murderer
hath eternal life abiding in him.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v16

Hereby perceive we the love of GOD,
because HE laid down HIS life for us:
and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v17

But whoso hath this world's good,
and seeth his brother have need,
and shutteth up his bowels from him,
how dwelleth the love of GOD in him?

{ heart }   [1J] 3v18

My little children, let us not love in word,
neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

¶ 1 John 3 v19-24

{ heart }   [1J] 3v19

And hereby we know that we are of the truth,
and shall assure our hearts before HIM.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v20

For if our heart condemn us,
GOD is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v21

Beloved, if our heart condemn us not,
then have we confidence toward GOD.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v22

And whatsoever we ask, we receive of HIM,
because we keep HIS commandments,
and do those things that are pleasing in HIS sight.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v23

And this is HIS commandment,

That we should believe on the NAME of HIS SON
JESUS CHRIST, and love one another,
as HE gave us commandment.

{ heart }   [1J] 3v24

And he that keepeth HIS commandments
dwelleth in HIM, and HE in him.
And hereby we know that HE abideth in us,
by the SPIRIT WHICH HE hath given us.

» 1 John 4

¶ 1 John 4 v1-6

{ heart }   [1J] 4v1

Beloved, believe not every spirit,
but try the spirits whether they are of GOD:
because many false prophets are gone out
into the world.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v2

Hereby know ye the SPIRIT of GOD:
Every spirit that confesseth
that JESUS CHRIST is come in the flesh
is of GOD:

{ heart }   [1J] 4v3

And every spirit that confesseth not
that JESUS CHRIST is come in the flesh
is not of GOD:
and this is that spirit of antichrist,
whereof ye have heard that it should come;
and even now already is it in the world.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v4

Ye are of GOD, little children,
and have overcome them:
because greater is HE THAT is in you,
than he that is in the world.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v5

They are of the world:
therefore speak they of the world,
and the world heareth them.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v6

We are of GOD: he that knoweth GOD heareth us;
he that is not of GOD heareth not us.
Hereby know we the spirit of truth,
and the spirit of error.

¶ 1 John 4 v7-21

{ heart }   [1J] 4v7

Beloved, let us love one another:
for love is of GOD;
and every one that loveth is born of GOD,
and knoweth GOD.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v8

He that loveth not knoweth not GOD;
for GOD is love.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v9

In this was manifested the love of GOD toward us,
because that GOD sent HIS only begotten SON
into the world, that we might live through HIM.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v10

Herein is love, not that we loved GOD,
but that HE loved us, and sent HIS SON
to be the PROPITIATION for our sins.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v11

Beloved, if GOD so loved us,
we ought also to love one another.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v12

No man hath seen GOD at any time.
If we love one another, GOD dwelleth in us,
and HIS love is perfected in us.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v13

Hereby know we that we dwell in HIM, and HE in us,
because HE hath given us of HIS SPIRIT.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v14

And we have seen and do testify

 ‘That the FATHER sent the SON
to be the SAVIOR of the world’.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v15

Whosoever shall confess that JESUS
is the SON of GOD,
GOD dwelleth in him, and he in GOD.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v16

And we have known and believed the love
that GOD hath to us. GOD is love;
and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in GOD,
and GOD in him.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v17

Herein is our love made perfect,
that we may have boldness in the day of judgment:
because as HE is, so are we in this world.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.
He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v19

We love HIM, because HE first loved us.

{ heart }   [1J] 4v20

If a man say,

 ‘I love GOD,’ 

And hateth his brother, he is a liar:
for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen,
how can he love GOD WHOM he hath not seen?

{ heart }   [1J] 4v21

And this commandment have we from HIM,

That he who loveth GOD love his brother also.

» 1 John 5

¶ 1 John 5 v1-5

{ heart }   [1J] 5v1

Whosoever believeth that JESUS is the CHRIST
is born of GOD;
and everyone that loveth HIM THAT begat
loveth HIM also THAT is begotten of HIM.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v2

By this we know that we love the children of GOD,
when we love GOD, and keep HIS commandments.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v3

For this is the love of GOD,
that we keep HIS commandments:
and HIS commandments are not grievous.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v4

For whatsoever is born of GOD
overcometh the world:
and this is the victory that overcometh the world,
even our faith.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v5

Who is he that overcometh the world,
but he that believeth that JESUS
is the SON of GOD?

¶ 1 John 5 v6-12

{ heart }   [1J] 5v6

THIS is HE THAT came by water and blood,
even JESUS CHRIST;
not by water only, but by water and blood.
And IT is the SPIRIT THAT beareth witness,
because the SPIRIT is truth.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v7

For there are THREE THAT bear record in heaven,
the FATHER, the WORD, and the HOLY GHOST:
and THESE THREE are ONE.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v8

And there are three that bear witness in earth,
the SPIRIT, and the water, and the blood:
and these three agree in one.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v9

If we receive the witness of men,
the witness of GOD is greater:
for this is the witness of GOD
which HE hath testified of HIS SON.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v10

He that believeth on the SON of GOD
hath the witness in himself:
he that believeth not GOD hath made HIM a liar,
because he believeth not the record
that GOD gave of HIS SON.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v11

And this is the record,
that GOD hath given to us eternal life,
and this life is in HIS SON.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v12

He that hath the SON hath life;
and he that hath not the SON of GOD hath not life.

¶ 1 John 5 v13-17

{ heart }   [1J] 5v13

These things have I written unto you
that believe on the NAME of the SON of GOD;
that ye may know that ye have eternal life,
and that ye may believe on the NAME
of the SON of GOD.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v14

And this is the confidence that we have in HIM,
that, if we ask any thing according to HIS will,
HE heareth us:

{ heart }   [1J] 5v15

And if we know that HE hear us, whatsoever we ask,
we know that we have the petitions
that we desired of HIM.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v16

If any man see his brother sin
a sin which is not unto death,
he shall ask, and HE shall give him life
for them that sin not unto death.
There is a sin unto death:
I do not say that he shall pray for it.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v17

All unrighteousness is sin:
and there is a sin not unto death.

¶ 1 John 5 v18-21

{ heart }   [1J] 5v18

We know that whosoever is born of GOD
sinneth not;
but he that is begotten of GOD keepeth himself,
and That Wicked One toucheth him not.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v19

And we know that we are of GOD,
and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v20

And we know that the SON of GOD is come,
and hath given us an understanding,
that we may know HIM THAT is true,
and we are in HIM THAT is true,
even in HIS SON JESUS CHRIST.
THIS is the true GOD, and eternal life.

{ heart }   [1J] 5v21

Little children, keep yourselves from idols.
Amen.
