1 My children, I am writing this to prevent you from sinning; but if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the upright.
1Tim 2:5 Rom 8:34 1John 1:8-10 Heb 7:24-26 2Cor 5:21 John 8:11 John 14:6
2 He is the sacrifice to expiate our sins, and not only ours, but also those of the whole world.
1John 4:10 1John 4:14 1Pet 3:18 John 11:51-52 1Pet 2:24 Rom 3:25-26 John 4:42
3 In this way we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments.
John 14:15 John 15:10 1John 4:13 1John 5:3 1John 2:4-6 John 15:14 John 14:21-24
4 Whoever says, 'I know him' without keeping his commandments, is a liar, and truth has no place in him.
1John 1:6 1John 1:8 Jas 2:14-16 Titus 1:16 1John 4:20 1John 2:9 Hos 8:2-3
5 But anyone who does keep his word, in such a one God's love truly reaches its perfection. This is the proof that we are in God.
John 14:23 1John 4:12-13 1John 3:24 John 14:21 Luke 11:28 Rev 14:12 1John 5:2
6 Whoever claims to remain in him must act as he acted.
1Pet 2:21 John 13:15 Matt 11:29 1Cor 11:1 1John 3:6 Eph 5:2 John 15:4-6
7 My dear friends, this is not a new commandment I am writing for you, but an old commandment that you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the message you have heard.
1John 3:11 Lev 19:18 2John 1:5-6 Mark 12:29-34 Rom 13:8-10 Matt 22:37-40 Gal 5:13-14
8 Yet in another way, I am writing a new commandment for you -- and this is true for you, just as much as for him -- for darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining.
Rom 13:12 Eph 5:8 John 13:34 John 8:12 John 1:9 2Cor 4:4-6 John 1:4-5
9 Whoever claims to be in light but hates his brother is still in darkness.
1John 4:20 2Pet 1:9 1John 2:11 1Cor 13:1-3 1John 3:13-17 1John 2:4 1John 1:6
10 Anyone who loves his brother remains in light and there is in him nothing to make him fall away.
1John 3:14 Rom 9:32-33 Phil 1:10 Matt 18:7 Rom 14:13 Hos 6:3 2Pet 1:10
11 But whoever hates his brother is in darkness and is walking about in darkness not knowing where he is going, because darkness has blinded him.
John 12:35 1John 2:9 Prov 4:19 1John 1:6 2Cor 3:14 2Cor 4:4 John 12:40
12 I am writing to you, children, because your sins have been forgiven through his name.
Acts 10:43 Acts 13:38 1John 2:21 Ps 106:8 Luke 5:20 Acts 4:12 1John 1:4
13 I am writing to you, fathers, because you have come to know the One who has existed since the beginning. I am writing to you, young people, because you have overcome the Evil One.
1John 2:14 John 14:7 1John 1:1 Luke 10:22 1John 4:4 1John 3:12 1John 5:4-5
14 I have written to you, children, because you have come to know the Father. I have written to you, parents, because you have come to know the One who has existed since the beginning. I have written to you, young people, because you are strong, and God's word remains in you, and you have overcome the Evil One.
1John 2:13 Ps 119:11 John 5:38 Eph 6:10 John 8:31 Col 3:16 John 15:7
15 Do not love the world or what is in the world. If anyone does love the world, the love of the Father finds no place in him,
Jas 4:4 Rom 12:2 Matt 6:24 Col 3:1-2 Luke 16:13 1John 3:17 1John 5:4-5
16 because everything there is in the world -- disordered bodily desires, disordered desires of the eyes, pride in possession -- is not from the Father but is from the world.
Rom 13:14 Gen 3:6 Gal 5:17 Josh 7:21 Prov 27:20 1Pet 2:11 2Pet 2:18
17 And the world, with all its disordered desires, is passing away. But whoever does the will of God remains for ever.
1Cor 7:31 Matt 24:35 Rom 12:2 Mark 3:35 1Pet 4:2 1Thess 4:3 Heb 10:36
18 Children, this is the final hour; you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, and now many Antichrists have already come; from this we know that it is the final hour.
1John 4:3 1John 2:22 2John 1:7 Matt 24:5 Matt 24:24 1Tim 4:1-3 1John 4:1
19 They have gone from among us, but they never really belonged to us; if they had belonged to us, they would have stayed with us. But this was to prove that not one of them belonged to us.
1Cor 11:19 Acts 20:30 Jude 1:19 Deut 13:13 Rom 9:6 Luke 8:13 Mark 4:5-6
20 But you have been anointed by the Holy One, and have all received knowledge.
1John 2:27 John 14:26 Prov 28:5 2Cor 1:21-22 Ps 45:7 Isa 61:1 Mark 1:24
21 I have written to you not because you are ignorant of the truth, but because you are well aware of it, and because no lie can come from the truth.
2Pet 1:12 Jude 1:5 Prov 9:8-9 Rom 15:14-15 Prov 1:5
22 Who is the liar, if not one who claims that Jesus is not the Christ? This is the Antichrist, who denies both the Father and the Son.
2John 1:7 1John 4:3 1John 2:18 Jude 1:4 1John 2:23 1John 4:20 John 8:44
23 Whoever denies the Son cannot have the Father either; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father too.
1John 4:15 John 8:19 John 10:30 2John 1:9-11 John 5:23 John 15:23-24 Luke 10:22
24 Let what you heard in the beginning remain in you; as long as what you heard in the beginning remains in you, you will remain in the Son and in the Father.
John 14:23 John 15:9-10 1John 1:3 Rev 3:3 1John 4:16 1John 2:7 John 17:21-24
25 And the promise he made you himself is eternal life.
John 10:28 Titus 3:7 John 17:2-3 Rom 5:21 Jude 1:21 1John 1:2 1Tim 6:12
26 So much have I written to you about those who are trying to lead you astray.
2John 1:7 1John 3:7 Mark 13:22 Acts 20:29-30 2Pet 2:1-3 2Tim 3:13 2Cor 11:13-15
27 But as for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you; since the anointing he gave you teaches you everything, and since it is true, not false, remain in him just as he has taught you.
John 14:26 1John 2:20-21 John 16:13 2John 1:2 2Pet 1:16-17 John 15:4-7 John 4:14
28 Therefore remain in him now, children, so that when he appears we may be fearless, and not shrink from him in shame at his coming.
1John 4:17 1John 3:2 Col 3:4 1John 2:1 1John 3:21 1Thess 2:19 1Pet 5:4
29 If you know that he is upright you must recognise that everyone whose life is upright is a child of his.
John 3:3-5 1John 5:1 1John 3:7 1John 4:7 John 1:13 Heb 7:26 2Pet 1:4
