1 John Chapter 5

1 John 5

1Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

2By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

3For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

4For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

5Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

6This 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.

7For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

8And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

9If 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.

10He 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.

11And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

12He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

13These 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.

14And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

15And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

16If 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.

17All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.

18We 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.

19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

20And 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.

21Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

  1. V. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. As a “Christian ” when we truly have a love for Christ is commandments will never be troublesome, it will just be in our nature to live and obey His word because we are filled with His Spirit. That is His Love for us.
    As

  2. 3For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

    4For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

  3. v 20 “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.”
    Hold onto the truth!!!

  4. chapter 5:4 overcometh. To overcome the world is to gain victory over its sinful pattern of life, which is another way of describing obedience to God .Such obedience is not impossible for the believer because he has been born againand the Holy Spirit dwells within him and gives him strength.John speaks of two aspects of victory :(1)the initial victory of turning in faith from the world to God(first “overcometh”) ; (2) the continuing day-by-day victory of Christian living(second “overcometh”).world.

  5. Vs 7-There are 3 that bear record in heaven, the Father, the word and the Holy Ghost, and these 3 are 1!

    What a wonderful oneness scripture that ties in with John 1:1- In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and the word was God vs 14 and the word became flesh and dwelt among us!

    Hold onto this truth! Jesus is God!

  6. 20And 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.

    Wonderful oneness scripture. We are in his son Jesus Christ this is the true God. How much more plainer can it be. 🙂

  7. It’s all about attitude through relationship. I have come to realize that the stronger my relationship with GOD is the stronger desire I have to obey, fulfill and complete HIS commandments. “It becomes FUN to serve and live for GOD”.

    3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

    The 2nd principal I have learned from this chapter has much to do with Spiritual maturity in the area of Prayer. I have also learned that God does not answer every prayer that I pray; however he does answer those that I pray according to HIS will. Spiritual Maturity is teaching to accept that unanswered prayer is another avenue that GOD uses to teach us about the contrast in my will and HIS will. Though I may not understand it at the time it always makes more sense as time unfolds.

    14And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

    15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

    I Love JESUS!

    BE Church

  8. vs 1-5
    Those who believe Jesus is the Christ are born of God. We know we are among the reborn when we love Gods children love God and keep his comandments only with new birth can we have victory over the world.

  9. RSB v14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything
    according to his will, he hears us.
    v15 And if we know that he hears us- whatever we ask- we know that we have what we asked of him.
    God’s Will is always best for his children.
    Our heavenly Father knows all of our needs.

  10. This chapter is for inspiration. If we believe God and keep his commandments, than we will see God and Heaven. We must keep ourselves from sin and help each other to refrain from sin, thank God for those that preach and teach Holiness and inspire us. We must never forget sin is sin and all have sinned, for this reason alone we must be forever grateful for the blood of Jesus. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  11. 7For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

    8And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

    awesome oneness scripture and confirmation of the plan of salvation

  12. Verse 17 tells us that not some, but that all unrighteousness is sin. We have to refrain from those things that are not holy. If we get caught up in the sin around us, then we loose our focus on the task that God has set up for us. Let’s Be Holy, Be Righteous, Be Church.

  13. 7For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

    8And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

    What a powerful oneness scripture. Verse 7 the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are ONE. Verse 8 the Holy Ghost (Spirit), water Baptizim (Water), and Repentance (Blood) are ONE. You must complete the process.

  14. God’s will not our will. When we communicate with God, we don’t demand what we want; rather we discuss with him what he wants for us. If we align our prayers to his will, he will listen; and we can be certain that he listens, he will give us a definite answer. We need to pray with confidence!

  15. 21Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

    I like the fact that after a great chapter the revelation of the Son of God and how JESUS is the Record and the Witness… at the end John says “little children, keep yourselves from idols.” This tells me that as little children are easily drawn away from a task or their attention is easily distracted, we likewise are easily removed from our understanding and faith by sin. Idols remove our attention from Jesus and steal our worship from the only living God, so… keep yourselves from them. It’s a choice; people choose not to worship God. Nothing we do or say is on accident… we WILL to do it.

  16. The God-begotten are also the God-protected. The Evil One can’t lay a hand on them. We know that we are held firm by God; it’s only the people of the world who continue in the grip of the Evil One. The Message

    What a blessing to be God-protected!
    Isaiah 54:17 Message…….. but no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged. Any accuser who takes you to court will be dismissed as a liar. This is what God’s servants can expect. I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best.” God’s Decree.

  17. First thing I do in the morning is Pray. When you are in love you want to spend every available time with that someone. You want to talk to them, you want to go out with them, you want to be able to be with them. I AM IN LOVE WITH CHRIST!!! The first thing I want to do in the morning is talk to Him, walk with Him, sing with Him, dance with Him; then my day will begin. First place that is where Jesus wants to be in your life, that is where He should be.

    21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen

  18. VS 21 little children keep yourselves from idols. Amen
    We shouldent let the things of this world keep us from God.

  19. 7For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

    Great oneness scripture! I Love the Lord! In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and the word was God. Thankful for the word of God that shed his blood for me!

  20. Verse 7.For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the word, and the Holy Spirit and these three are ONE!!

  21. 21 Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.

    This is the last verse in this chapter… Saved the best for last, so lets be sure to listen to it.

  22. Verse 4-5 (Message) read….”Every God-begotten person conquers the world’s ways. The conquering power that brings the world to its knees is our faith. The person who wins out over the world’s ways is simply the one who believes Jesus is the Son of God. ” I want to be God-begotten! The end of the chapter says…”The God-begotten are also the God-protected.”

  23. 3For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

    KEep His commandments. They are not Grievious. We should do this joyfully too, it would help our walk…
