1 John 2:12-14

1 John 2:12-14 KJV
12 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.
13 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.
14 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.

Finally Made It

Praise be to God for every person who has ever lived and died firmly in their faith in Jesus.

1 John 2:1

1 John 2:1 (KJV)
1 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.

Jesus Is Our Advocate

If you have fallen into sin, don’t justify it but come to the Lord in prayer. Confess your sins and God’s mercy is for you.

1 John 2:15,16

1 John 2:15,16 (KJV)
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 pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

The Lusts Of The Flesh

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. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh.

1 John 2:1,2

1 John 2:1,2 (KJV)
1 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:
2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

True Love And Devotion To God

So what does it make a person that forgets God’s commandments and still says that they have faith in and know the Lord Jesus?

1 John 2:15-17

1 John 2:15-17 (KJV)
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 pride 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.

1 John 2:3-6

1 John 2:3-6 (KJV)
3 And hereby we do 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 is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

Requirements To Enter Heaven

When we love the Lord Jesus, all of these things become a part of our lives. As we give our lives to Christ, He is able to transform is.

Christians Can Be Deceived

As hard times come to all believers in Christ, our daily prayers, Bible study, fellowship with other believers, and doing God’s will, will be our refuge in the storms.

1 John 2:9-11

1 John 2:9-11 (KJV)
9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

Live In God’s Love

If we are to believe that we know God personally, then we are also living in His will. There is a conviction “that we know him, if we keep his commandments.”

Come Back To Jesus

If any of you have strayed from the path of God then get on your knees now and pray. Confess your sins before the Lord.

Break Free From Addictions

Now is the time to cast out all darkness. Your soul is in jeopardy of going to hell if you don’t put off the lusts of the flesh and come to Jesus.
