2 John

The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;

For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.

Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.

I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.

And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.

Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

12 Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.

13 The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.

  1. 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

    When the time comes of jesus coming to earth there will be many to deceive us saying all kinds of things. They are not with god. We must keep a strong minded and control our flesh to keep walking the path of god.

  2. Verse 6 CEV “Love means that we do what God tells us. And from the beginning, he told you to love him.” Verse 9 CEV “Don’t keep changing what you were taught about Christ, or else God will no longer be with you. But if you hold firmly to what you were taught, both the Father and the Son will be with you.”

    Deuteronomy 6:4-9 CEV says “Listen, Israel! The Lord our God is the only true God![a] So love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and strength. Memorize his laws and tell them to your children over and over again. Talk about them all the time, whether you’re at home or walking along the road or going to bed at night, or getting up in the morning. Write down copies and tie them to your wrists and foreheads to help you obey them. Write these laws on the door frames of your homes and on your town gates.”

  3. 5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
    6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

    When Jesus asked Peter, do you love me? Peter responded that he did, to which Jesus replied, then feed my sheep. Love is a word of action and obedience. It’s much deeper than we will ever realize on this Earth its meaning and depth. there are many people who claim to be Christians and claim to love God but do not walk in the truth that God gave them. God calls us to obedience according to his word that he gives us, and it is in our response the God knows and sees that reciprocated love

  4. V.9
    When John says,”whoever transgresses and dose not abide in the doctrine of Christ ,” he is speaking of false teachers . To transgress is to go beyond the allowed bounds . That is what the cults do they claim to have new light and teach doctrines that God has not stay vealed in His word. They do not stay within the bounds of the Christian revelation , or abide in the doctrine of Christ , probably meaning the teachings which Christ Himself brought .it could also mean all that the Bidle teaches about Christ. The apostle emphasizes in verse 9 that a cultist may claim to know God , but if he does not believe in the absolute deity and humanity of the Lord Jesus ,he does not have God at all God can only be known through His son . “ no one comes to the Father except through Me” ( John 14:6).

  5. 10. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

    John 17:
    6. I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

    7. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

    8. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

    Galatians 1:
    8. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

  6. 5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

    6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

    We need to love one another. It’s not a new commandment but it’s important that we understand that we need to love others. We shouldn’t just say we do and hide bitterness and hard feelings towards someone in our hearts. Forgiveness is important, if God didn’t show us love or give us grace, mercy, and forgiveness then where would we be?

  7. 8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.

    The one thing in life that we must never do when it is concerning the things of God, we must never lose faith sand never give up. I find that we will make it to the very end to hear Him day we’ll done thou good and faithful servant. We have to push through the emotional state of the flesh and its willingness to give up when the going gets tough. But as long as we hold to the anchor we will make it. Seek first the kingdom and let God direct us, scripture tells us that the steps of a righteous man are ordered of the Lord.

    I love the Kingdom!

  8. 2 John 5-6 (Amp) And now I beg you, lady [ Cyria ] not as If I were issuing a new charge ( injunction or command , But [ simply recalling to your mind] the one we had from the beginning, that we love one another. [6] And what this love consists in accordance with and guided by His commandment ( His orders , ordinances, precepts , teaching). This is the continue to walk , in love [ guided by it and follow it]. The second letter of John is addressed in the elect [ chosen ] lady ( Cyria ) and her children , which may refer to an individual and her family , or possibly to a church. Emphasis is given to the importance of the doctrine that Jesus is God’s Son in bodily form and the readers should continue in God’s love and reject false doctrine. To continue to love one another and submissive and obedient to his word.

  9. You can’t accept just anything that comes to you. You must only accept the truth. This doctrine of this world is not the doctrine of God’s word. We must not get mixed up with lies. Hold on to the faith and run with it.

  10. I say this because many deceivers have gone out into the world. They deny that Jesus Christ came in a real body. Such a person is a deceiver and an antichrist. Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked so hard to achieve. Be diligent so that you receive your full reward. Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God. But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son.
    2 John 1:7‭-‬9 NLT

    Stand firm in our faith. Don’t let any nay Sayers try to come and pluck out what has been rooted in us. This is Truth! It’s real and eternal. This doctrine is what the apostles worked for. The great thing about TRUTH is that it cannot pass away. It’s settled in heaven. Therefore it isn’t bound by the same constraints of time and space. If you develop your own doctrine it can only last for so long because sooner or later something/one will come along to disprove it. Our Truth is the ONE TRUE GOD in written form. It will not pass away. That’s why we can build on it, anchor ourselves to it, and grow in it. Im in awe of You everyday LORD. YOU NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE ME! I love You❤️

    Ephesians 4:14-15
    14That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

  11. We are what we do , even when we are by ourselfs. Stay steadfast in the Faith

    Love means doing what God has commanded us, and he has commanded us to love one another, just as you heard from the beginning. I say this because many deceivers have gone out into the world. They deny that Jesus Christ came in a real body. Such a person is a deceiver and an antichrist. Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked so hard to achieve. Be diligent so that you receive your full reward. Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God. But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son.

  12. If anyone comes to your meeting and does not teach the truth about Christ, don’t invite that person into your home or give any kind of encouragement. Anyone who encourages such people becomes a partner in their evil work. I have much more to say to you, but I don’t want to do it with paper and ink. For I hope to visit you soon and talk with you face to face. Then our joy will be complete.
    2 John 1:10‭-‬12 NLT
    This is where we must be very careful. The days of the deceivers is here and there are those out there that will twist God’s word to suit what they desire from us. The enemy will use every weapon that he has to distract us from seeking after the Kingdom. There’s only one problem; he only knows our past and can’t do anything without God’s permission. It’s up to me and to those that are around me to keep our minds guarded from such things. All that it takes is one little slip and the door is open for the world to creep into our life; uh oh 🤔 now what. I committed a sin; easy repent and turn away from it, but I like it. Wrong answer; I know for me that I should never like sin, but it’s what you know. Remember you served me for a long time. He didn’t exist in your eyes. Wrong Lucy; God has always been there and will always be there mo matter how many times I stumble. This is what I’m saying; sometimes it’s just a thought, sometimes a glance. It doesn’t matter the situation; God should never be put on the back burner. Especially for this filthy rag that I’m clothed in; flesh. Lord I pray that you will guard my mind from this rock and that you Lord cleanse my flesh of all it’s shamefullness. I thank you Lord and give my all to you.

  13. 2 John

    4 I was greatly delighted to find some of your children walking in truth, just as we have been commanded by the Father. 5 Now I ask you, lady, not as if I were writing to you a new commandment, but [simply reminding you of] the one which we have had from the beginning, that we [b]love and unselfishly seek the best for one another. 6 And this is love: that we walk in accordance with His commandments and are guided continually by His precepts. This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you should [always] walk in love.

    Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.

    Titus 2:1 ESV / 2 helpful votes

    But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.

    Father as we go through out the world keep our eyes our ears sensitive keen to your voice. Knowing that as the day approaches there will be many more false doctrine and people trying to predusde that their life ay is tight. Cover our minds help us to stay in the Word and to know it snd apply it daily. In Jesus name. I pray for those who are seeking truth give them strength to break away from traditional church . To find a depth in You and in truth. Your Word is truth. Let us continue to hide your words deep into our hearts in Jesus name. Help us to lead others with your love and compassion yet with authority over the adversary. In Jesus name. Amen

  14. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

    If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
    2 John 1:10‭-‬11 KJV

    I cant just accept what may be true, I have accept what is true. I cant allow Dakota to be taught something different! We cant learn Apostolic Doctrin out of the book of morman, and he cant learn it out the karan, I beleive the doctrin of Jesus Christ is the Apostolic doctrin, that we teach, That Jesus died, he rose three days later, and he gave the Apostals and many others the Holy Ghost, and we are to be Baptised in Jesus Name and Filled with the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking with tounge as the spirit gives utterance, and we are to go and teach it and preach it and baptize people and they will receive the Holy Ghost and there is a promiss attached. Its is for me you and all of our kids, family and EVERYONE, why is that so hard to beleive, people dont want to accept that there may be consequences for sin, so we gotta make it right, Alot of people have that once saved always saved mentality, and they can find a couple verses to support something like that, but there really is no bases for that! People want the easy way, they dont want to put in no work, But we have to live for God the way we beleive, the way we are being taught, and if someone rejects God we cant even wish them God Speed, so that right there is an indication that God does not like rejection, and he wont tolerate it! God speed is simply wishing someone well, God says If the reject the Doctrin of Christ they have no part and do not wish them well otherwise we are just as evil! Help me Lord but if they do then they have both Father and son, and we are able to show them a great farewell! God is so Good, definatly learned something new!

  15. 7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

    8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.

    9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

    10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

    11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

    Show true love to others, don’t hold grudges or talk bad about people. God shows us forgiveness and grace everyday we should be the same with others. You will meet people that don’t have Jesus and want to pass false doctrine do not accept it and do not let them into your home.

  16. 1:8 Look to yourselves that we loose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
    Search your ( mine) heart constantly, protect it, check if we are still in the faith, persevere , keep learning,
    Seek his face… let us anything distract us or keep us from him….

  17. 2 John 1:4-6

    Not everyone will walk in Spirit, not everyone will catch modesty revelations and oneness revelations the same way you did. What we’re all called to do is much deeper than that. We’re here to love one another and share his word to walk ACCORDING to His commandments. The Bible says you SHOULD walk in it. Does that mean you’re not gonna struggle; absolutely not but at least you’re after Gods own heart when you’re chasing His ways.

  18. “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.”
    ‭‭2 John‬ ‭1:7-8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    There of been many opportunities for deception. We have to stand firm in our understanding and believes of Jesus and share his word with others. We have to be able to discern the things around us. The only way for us to do that is to be grounded in the word. Observe the fruit of others. And do the work that God has told us to do. We must love others.

  19. iLove the Kingdom in Action
    I’m not sure if y’all noticed it or not, but 2nd John is the “Truth” chapter. In the first 4 scriptures of the chapter, the word “truth” is mentioned 5 times. The truth is important. I made up in my mind a long time ago that I would sell out to the truth. It does not matter if I agree with the truth or not, if it is truth I have determined that I must accept it.

    This age that we live in is filled with self proclaimed prophets on the internet who preach all kinds of garbage. People try to “explain” away scripture thinking their wisdom is wiser than the wisdom of God. Hogwash folks, where’s that in the Bible. Folks need to stop twisting the scriptures and accept them for what they are. the Bible is not politically correct y’all, stop trying to make it fit the lies of the 21st century. Love the truth and sell it not.

  20. The greatest commandment of all

    5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

    6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

    Jesus said if we obey all the other commandments and forget this one we have wasted our time with the others. All other commandments hinge on this one, to Love one another. True love is easy and has no burden. I love my children and wife without thinking about it. It is not hard work to show someone you love them when it is true love. Now I judge my own love for them by the level of commitment and sacrifice I have for them. This is how we know that Jesus loved us with everything he had because he gave everything and sacrificed everything. I wonder sometimes though if we are not receiving those prophesies in our POFW body because we are not truly obeying this simple and most powerful commandment? We see folks avoid one another, go the other way, have clicks and little groups that they won’t let anyone else in. We see like a gravitational pull on some to always greet some and not others. I watch and wonder how God feels about how we treat one another. There is no way to hide this one from God. There is one thing that I know for sure, if we do not get this love issue fixed, God is not obligated to do anything for us. We have to love each other beyond our opinions and frailties like we do our blood families. The most powerful message that God himself has ever whispered into my ear is: The most wonderful thing about God and the most terrible thing about God is the exact same thing, He knows our hearts. I believe that if we are going to see what God wants to do in us, for us, and through us, we will have to start right here. Here is the altar again in everything we do. Let our differences be put aside at the altar. Let us truly love one another. The let us see what God is going to do.

  21. 8 Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked so hard to achieve. Be diligent so that you receive your full reward. (NLT)

    Desire and the value you have for the Word of God is crucial as Pastor said to receive. What a shame it would be for your reward to merely graze your fingertips. Might feel good to have a little touch, but we must have a desire to fully receive what God has for us. I want more of You God!

  22. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
    11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
    12 Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.

    The Word of God is clear when it comes to its teaching and receive of it. Some people will not receive the teachings of God. Their ways seems right to them and they will rejoice thinking they know the way. Yet we are to stand bold on the Word of God and not rejoice with them but it is equally important that we do not receive their words into our spirit or our home. Guarding the fragile minds of our children or those that are weak in the faith is very important.

  23. 4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
    5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
    6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

    Walking in the truth.

    I thank God that I have grown up in this great gospel. I know not everyone has this testimony, and I thank God that He saves all who want to be saved. It is through love that we are saved. For God so loved the world…, that’s it. If he didnt love us, he would have just started over. But thanks be to God that He loves us. What can we do to show other this? We should show the love of God to others. That’s one of the things we must do to establish His Kingdom here. The next question is. Hows your alter?

  24. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    KINGDOM WALK

    6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

    Two words are repeatedly coming to my mind over the past few weeks.

    KINGDOM ADVANCEMENT

    Again today these 2 words are pressing on my mind and spirit.

    KINGDOM WALK is KINGDOM ADVANCEMENT

    KINGDOM WALK is walking after HIS commandments or walking in obedience.

    The walk of obedience is a safe and protected walk. We must learn and love HIS commandments. The reason our walk is so important is that it has prophetic promise.

    Joshua 1:3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

    Malachi 4:3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.

    We must stay on the path of OBEDIENCE and on the course of TRUTH. As the apostle Paul commissioned his followers:

    1Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

    Direction is found at the ALTAR!

  25. 2 For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.

    What is truth?

    Truth is what brings us together as a church. It is also what separates us from others.

    What is truth?

    Truth is truth. It’s forever. The truth does not change. The truth will be true forever, and we will have the truth forever in eternity. Many people today think that the truth changes from age to age and from generation to generation, but the Bible knows that the truth will be with us forever.

    What is truth?

    “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭14:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    He is truth! When the truth abides in us, He abides in us. When we walk in truth, we are walking with Him.

  26. And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
    2 John 1:5‭-‬6 KJV

    What was it that drew me back to church the second time, the third time, and the fourth time?
    Of course it was the Spirit of GOD in true love that kept drawing me to Him. But that wasn’t all. It was a lady by the name of Sis. Lenda Cordell. She took me under her wings, she nurtered me with truth, she poured into me continually, she prayed for me and with me. She loved me as her own child. This is what the ‘lady'(church/POFW) does. If we desire to continue in revival and growth, we must continue in truth and love❤

  27. 1 The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;

    2 For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.

    The truth does not change. The truth will be true forever, and we will have the truth forever in eternity. Many people today think that the truth changes from age to age and from generation to generation, but the Bible knows that the truth will be with us forever.

  28. 5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

    6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

    The gospel is for whosoever will. We do not pick and choose who should come to church and hear the apostolic message. We open our hearts and arms and welcome those the Lord sends. We love them as he loves us.

  29. 12 I have much more to say to you, but I don’t want to do it with paper and ink. For I hope to visit you soon and talk with you face to face. Then our joy will be complete.

    Some things have to be face to face. Although the new norm is to attend church online from the comfort of your home, yet there is just something missing from not actually entering the House of God.

    To be complete as the word states before we must be face to face with the not only those around us, but with our Heavenly Father Jesus Christ. Meeting Him face to face at our altar! Meeting Him Face to Face will make us complete!

  30. 5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

    6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

    If we love Jesus we will seek Him daily and surround ourselves with other believers that seek Him with all their hearts!

  31. AMP – 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching [but diminishes or adds to the doctrine of Christ], do not receive or welcome him into your house, and do not give him a greeting or any encouragement; 11 for the one who gives him a greeting [who encourages him or wishes him success, unwittingly] participates in his evil deeds.

    It troubles my spirit when I see people that have walked away and discarded TRUTH being supported by those who abide in truth. Supported in this manner, they cut their hair, post a pic of them in their new “attire”, pants or shorts, or decked out in makeup and jewelry and Holy Ghost filled people “like” the pic or comment how cut they look. What in Heaven are we thinking? Why would we encourage sin?

    I believe we will give account for every word we say, post, write etc. I will give an account to God for encourage those that are sinning to keep sinning. My prayer today is that I will be bold in the holy ghost and stand for what I believe in person, on paper, on social media, on the phone etc.

    If I am not bold enough to stand for Truth, I need to find myself an “Altar” and stay there until I am changed.

  32. “…I am writing to the chosen lady and to her children… How happy I was to meet some of your children and find them living according to the truth, just as the Father commanded. …doing what God has commanded… I say this because many deceivers have gone out into the world. …Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked so hard to achieve. …Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God…If anyone comes to your meeting and does not teach the truth about Christ, don’t invite that person into your home or give any kind of encouragement.
    2 John 1:1‭, ‬4‭-‬4‭, ‬6‭-‬10 NLT

    I’m going to go way off script here and use John’s warning out of context (but still in truth).

    If someone from another church was to meet our children alone somewhere and begin to speak with them, would they find our children living according to truth? Do we have this testimony, that our children have been taught and are walking in the truth?

    We have a commandment from the Father to diligently raise up our children in God’s Word and ways:
    “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up,” (Deuteronomy 6:6‭-‬7).

    This commandment goes beyond just taking them to church so others can teach them. This commandment means that we should be teaching God’s truth at home with every breath and action. We must live truth as an example for our children. We must train them up ourselves in the way that they should go.

    There are many deceivers who will gladly pervert the minds of our children once we invite them into our homes (TV, movies, games, music, Internet, etc.). It is up to us, not only to diligently teach our children truth but, to diligently guard our children from the false teachers of this world. If we invite them in to influence our children, then we are partakers of their sins and share in the responsibility for the polluting of our children’s hearts and the generations that follow us.

    We must watch out that we do not lose this precious truth (and all the sacrifices of those who have gone before us) because we did not properly prepare our children to know it, love it, and obey it. This happened in the Old Testament. Israel served the Lord all the days of Moses and Joshua, and then they fell away. Moses carefully trained up and prepared Joshua; and when Moses died, the people continued to serve the Lord. However, Joshua failed to train his own successor, and the people fell into idolatry after his death. Thus, Spiro’s Zodhiates justly warns, “God’s people are always just one generation away from apostasy. Therefore, young people must be trained to walk in the fear of the Lord today so that they become the proper, godly leaders of tomorrow.”

    Do our children have a relationship with the Father? Or have we, through neglect, allowed them to wander away from the truth? Have we given them worldly entertainment to placate or babysit them? Have we invited false doctrines into our homes to fill their hours with lies when we should have been filling those hours with truth? Have we blindly and complacently given them over to false teachers in public schools and then not bothered at home to correct the lies they are being taught there?

    The truth is in our hands. It is up to us to diligently teach our children to walk in it.

    (I do not write this to accuse or condemn anyone. As a mother with grown backslidden children [who lived without TV and were homeschooled], I am well aware that we cannot make their choices for them. However, we can and should ensure that they are diligently taught truth while in our homes. We must give them the best chance of choosing the right path; and, we must continue to believe that even if they do stray, they will eventually come back to the truth they have been taught.)

  33. “This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it.”
    ‭‭II John‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
    If you truly Love God. Then you will walk in his word. And his commandments. And you will keep it all your days. Then you would show your children and the ones you love. This is showing that you love God.

  34. her, in truth and love.

    4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
    5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
    6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
    7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
    8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
    9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

  36. 2 John 10-11 (the voice)
    10) If any person comes to you with a teaching that does not align with the true message of Jesus, do not welcome that person into your house or greet him as you would a true brother.
    11) Anyone who welcomes this person has become a partner in advancing his wicked agenda.

    This passage of scripture is taken out of the translation of “The Voice.” I got to thinking about how many “Voices” and false teachers are in the world today.
    This is why we Must Know the Word of God for ourselves (read it – study it- understand it – hear it when it is taught or preached). So that when someone tries to tell us something that does not align itself with the Word, we can say, “Where’s that in the Bible?”
    Also, if someone tries to tell you something that does not align itself up with the Word and tries to preach to you any other gospel than that which you have received, he is to be accursed. (Gal. 1:9)

  37. “How happy I was to meet some of your children and find them living according to the truth, just as the Father commanded.”
    ‭‭

  38. “Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked so hard to achieve. Be diligent so that you receive your full reward.”
    ‭‭2 John‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    It has taking me a long way to get here where I am today. My relationship with God and what He has done for me and my husband that is not worth loosing what we have achieved in God’s kingdom. Now more then ever we have to get a hold of what we believe and be bold to stand firm in it.
    Nothing, nothing is worth loosing what God has delivered us from.
    It’s time to call things as they are. I have been bless to have people in my life that have no problem telling me that I am wrong. Because i know they love me and want me to be saved.

    We are in Times that we can’t loose focus. Sin is everywhere and God is coming soon.

  39. v 2 For truth’s sake,which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.

    Truth is not something that merely comes and goes….
    but it is that ” which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us forever “

  40. 4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
    5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

    The Lord takes so much delight in us rearing and teaching our children to follow him. He loves to see them walking in the truth. Loving and praising Him as we have taught them to do. The greatest way to teach them is teaching by example. Teaching by example speaks volumes of what we truly believe.

    6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

    As we walk in the truth our children watch closely. We are a testament in our everyday life. With every step we take, every breath we take we are teaching, sometimes without even realizing it.

  41. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.
    2 John 1:10‭-‬11 NIV

    Don’t let people who teach a false teaching in to close. The little messages that they put out are little ideas that can sway you away from the truth.

  42. 4 How happy I was to meet some of your children and find them living according to the truth, just as the Father commanded.

    Words that parents like to hear from others. Its great to hear when we see old friends from our previous churches we attended, and they tell us, “its wonderful your daughters are serving God in many ways”. As parents, we can only say thank you God, for guarded our children and guiding them in your ways.

  43. 4 It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us.

    We must have a walk with God in love and truth for others to see him! It doesn’t matter if we were raised in the church or not God loves all the same and wants to see our life with him. As youth we learn from the ones that came before us, I pray that this youth group will follow after his commands and the generations before us to have a hunger for revival like we’ve never seen before!

  44. “If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.”
    ‭‭2 John‬ ‭1:10-11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    We should always be cautious of who we choose to associate with. The Contemporary English Version states it like this, “Greeting them is the same as taking part in their evil deeds.” Yikes!! What a terrible situation to put yourself in, don’t compromise your beliefs for friends that will lead you astray.

  45. 7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

    In the world their will be those whom we can trust to teach the truth, and others we can identify as false prophets. It’s evident by what they teach and if it lines up with the Word of God. Some will try to sow confusion and lies but a believer of the truth can see right through the lies. These deceivers do not truly love Gods people but act if part of the antichrist and should be avoided. Those who are on guard of the wiles of the enemy and stand on the doctrine of the Word, abides in God. They will exhibit the love of God to others compelling them for the sake of His kingdom.

  46. 2 For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.

    Those Who know the truth will know it forever.. Who know the truth will know it forever. It is up to us to draw them near and tell them more about the truth, so that they will come back to Christ if they know the truth already. We are in the wal it is up to us to draw them near and tell them more about the truth, so that they will come back to Christ if they know the truth already. We are in the one with the Vessels for the Kingdom!

  47. 8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
    9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
    10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
    11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

    ABSOLUTELY NO COMPROMISING!!! If any compromise they do so unto their own salvation……

  48. 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
    10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
    11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

    Many times we forget this simple thing, and we place ourselves in harms way, because we want to “spread Jesus” and bless someone who is cursed because of the
    sin that has been allowed to

  49. And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
    2 John 1:6 KJV
    True love = Obedience to God’s Word!

  50. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

    I was evangelizing in the neighborhood the other day when a Baptist man came to me to debate about the trinity.

    We keep going back and forward when a friend of his comes from around the corner and starts yelling at me. Calling me a false prophet, a false teacher, blaming me for sending ppl to hell.

    The other guy was so embarrassed he started to say Bye when this other guy lost it and forbid him to say good bye, because of this scripture. Omg

  51. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

    We need to be watchful about what we allow in our minds and hearts. It is therefore important that we Know Him and His Word. There only one doctrine, one God, one baptism.

  52. 2 John:8-11
    8) Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
    9) Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
    10) If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
    11) For he that bideth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

  53. Dear friend, don’t let this bad example influence you. Follow only what is good. Remember that those who do good prove that they are God’s children, and those who do evil prove that they do not know God.

    As followers of God we should know what to do. We should know what to do when we pray and read His Word. This is how we truly going to know what to do, when we pray and seek His face. We can’t follow our own desires but do what God wants us to do. Jesus is the only way, He is the truth and the light. Whatever you need you can find it in prayer and in His Word.
