The Annointing

1 My little children, these things write I unto you that ye may not sin. And
if any man sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the
2 and he is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only,
but also for the whole world.
3 And hereby we know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar,
and the truth is not in him;
5 but whoso keepeth his word, in him verily
hath the love of God been perfected. Hereby we know that we are in him:
6 he that saith he abideth in him ought himself also to walk even as he
7 Beloved, no new commandment write I unto you, but an old
commandment which ye had from the beginning: the old commandment is
the word which ye heard.
8 Again, a new commandment write I unto you,
which thing is true in him and in you; because the darkness is passing
away, and the true light already shineth.
9 He that saith he is in the light
and hateth his brother, is in the darkness even until now.
10 He that loveth
his brother abideth in the light, and there is no occasion of stumbling in
11 But he that hateth his brother is in the darkness, and walketh in the
darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because the darkness hath
blinded his eyes.
12 I write unto you, my little children, because your sins are forgiven you
for his name’s sake.
13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye know him who
is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have
overcome the evil one. I have written unto you, little children, because ye
know the Father.
14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye know him
who 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 evil one.
15 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.
16 For all
that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the
vain glory of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world
passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God
abideth for ever.
18 Little children, it is the last hour: and as ye heard that antichrist cometh,
even now have there arisen many antichrists; whereby we know that it is
the last hour.
19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if
they had been of us, they would have continued with us: but they went out,
that they might be made manifest that they all are not of us.
20 And ye have an anointing from the Holy One, and ye know all the
21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but
because ye know it, and because no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is the liar but
he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, even he that
denieth the Father and the Son.
23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same
hath not the Father: he that confesseth the Son hath the Father also.
24 As
for you, let that abide in you which ye heard from the beginning. If that
which ye heard from the beginning abide in you, ye also shall abide in the
Son, and in the Father.
25 And this is the promise which he promised us,
even the life eternal.
26 These things have I written unto you concerning
them that would lead you astray.
27 And as for you, the anointing which
ye received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any one teach you;
but as his anointing teacheth you; concerning all things, and is true, and is
no lie, and even as it taught you, ye abide in him.
28 And now, my little children, abide in him; that, if he shall be manifested,
we may have boldness, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
29 If
ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one also that doeth
righteousness is begotten of him.
