written to you, fathers, because you have come to know Him Who Is from the very beginning. Ihave written to you, young men, because you are conquering the evil one [or, wicked one, i.e., the devil].(15) Neither love the world, nor the desires of the world [system]. If anyone loves the world[age, man¶s system], the Love of The Father is not in them. (16) Because all that pertains to theworld, - the lust of the flesh, the coveting of the eyes, and the vain grandeur of life, - does notoriginate from The Father but stems from the world. (17) And the world will pass away along withits lust, but those that do the will of God will live on forever.(18) Young children, it is the Final Hour! And just as you have heard about Antichristcoming, even now there are
antichrist,-and by this observation we can understand that it isthe Final Hour. (19) They went out from among us, but they did not truly belong, - if they had trulybelonged they would have stayed with us! But this makes it evident that they have no part with us.(20) But you have been anointed by The Most Holy and thereby have complete knowledge. (21) Idid not write to you because you do not know The Truth, but because you do know it,-and no lieoriginates with The Truth. (22) Who is the µLiar¶? The one that rejects that Jesus is the Christ [the Anointed One]. This is the Antichrist,-the one that abnegates The Father and The Son [the Divine
Family relationship]. (23) No one that repudiates The Son has any share in The Father. (24) As foryou then, stay with what you have learned at the very start. If you continue to stay with what youlearned at the very beginning, then you will also continue in union with The Son and The Father.(25) And this is the promise that he promises to us,-eternal life.(26) I am writing this to you about those who would lead you astray. (27) But the anointingthat you are recipients of from Him remains in you, - so you have no need for anyone to ³teach´you. Because the same anointing from Him is instructing you in all details, - it is Truth and containsno lies, - so just as it has been taught you, continue with Him. (28) And so, little children, stay inunion with Him, so that when He appears we can have confidence and not shrink back in shame inHis presence. (29) If you know that He is Righteous, then you can perceive that everyone that worksrighteousness is conceived by Him.CHAPTER THREELook at the type of Love that The Father lavishes upon us, - that we should be called ³Thesons of God´! That is why the world does not know about us, - because they do not know Him. (2)Beloved, even though we are now God¶s sons, - the full details of our composition to be are notcomplete. But we do understand that when He arrives, we will be just like Him, - because we will beable to behold His true form. (3) And everyone that embraces this hope for themselves cleans uptheir act because He is pure.(4) Whoever practices sin is violating the Law; because
sin is the violation of the Law
. (5) Sonow you understand that He appeared so as to eradicate sin, because with Him sin has no place. (6)Everyone that is in union with Him does not practice sin; - anyone that practices sin has never seenHim nor knows Him.
