I, II, III John verse by verse:
The Gospel of John declares the theme of I JOHN:
EVIDENCE OF THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST IN YOU:
John 1:  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
 The same was in the beginning with God.
 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
John 12:  And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
Our Lord's repeated warning to all who elect Him as their Lord and Savior:
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
That is what Christianity is all about. When we fully trust Christ as Lord and therefore Savior we realized we are to crucify also our owns lives in this world for the Glory of God. Believing ON Christ out of a pure heart makes true believer's reborn, indwelt by the Spirit and with clear eyes and ears to see and hear HIS Truth.
1John 1:  That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
Man shall not LIVE eternally by bread alone but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God (there must be an every Word Bible by the way.)
 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
No matter what happens down here, we know we will be with HIM for eternity
 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Walk according to His Word, staying in His Word daily. We must realize that His Word and dying to self to live for Him is all that Matters in this physical life.
The world’s accomplishments, the world’s SUCCESS, the world’s status in life MEAN NOTHING TO THOSE CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST.
 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
This is part of walking with God, confessing our sins and pleading for His Spirit to strengthen us through HIS WORD.
 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
I John 2:  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:
 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
We abandon our status, our accomplishments, our seeming success and look only to true success pleasing God through faith in His Son. How can anyone say Jesus is their Savior if they do not spend the rest of their lives here abandoning their lives here? This is the theme of I, II, III John!
 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
** Love the Lord your God with all your heart, your mind and your being and LOVE your neighbor as yourself.
 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
 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.
**Our desire to follow the Sermon on the Mount is evidence of the new birth. There is no other evidence!
 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.
 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.
 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.
*** 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.
THIS IS THE THEME OF THE WHOLE BOOK TO KNOW YOU ARE SAVED
 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. REMEMBER THIS WHEN WE SPEAK of "regarding iniquity in our hearts".
 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
ANTI CHRIST IS ANY ONE WHO DOES NOT TEACH WHAT CHRIST TAUGHT!
 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
ALL WHO CLAIM CHRIST BUT STILL LOVE THEIR LIFE IN THIS WORLD; REGARD THEIR EGO, PRIDE, AMBITION AND THE TEMPORARY; THOSE WHO TAKE UP THE SWORD AND INSIST ON THEIR RIGHT TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AND STILL DELUDE THEMSELVES INTO BELIEVING THEY ARE SAVED.
THEY ARE OF THE WORLD AND NOT OF THE FATHER.
 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
This is the evidence of the new birth that we continue IN HIM and growing in Grace to become like HIM in this present evil world.
 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
**Remember the indwelling Holy Spirit who GUIDES US IN ALL TRUTH. There is no need for men after the first century to guide us. A local pastor should be the mouthpiece by which the Scriptures are read out loud.
It is the dependence of man’s interpretation and guidance that Rome has created as the mother of harlots. All the denominations in the world are under the Mother’s influence and we must stay away from their false teachings.
 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
 If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.
What righteousness? See vs. 28
1John 3:  Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
**WHO CARES ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE IS THE POINT OUR LORD IS MAKING HERE.
 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Our glorified bodies will be just as HIS glorified body is.
 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
WHAT IS THIS RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD:
For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment:
 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me: The Holy Spirit indwells, convicts and guides us into all Truth. We cannot continue to regard iniquity in our hearts as before.
 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
REMEMBER our Lord's SERMON ON THE MOUNT, IT IS ALWAYS THE TRUTH OF THE HEART THAT GOD SEES NEVER THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE. EVEN WHEN WE DO OUTWARDLY GOOD THINGS AS HE COMMANDED. HE SEES ONLY THE MOTIVATION OF THE HEART TO DO THEM.
 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.
 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
THIS IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD DEMONSTRATED TO US BY JESUS:
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
REMEMBER THE PURPOSE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT’s COMING:
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH IS FOLLOWING THE LORDS EXAMPLE IN THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT, and of judgment:
Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness (TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS) by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
All are judged based on the Words Jesus has spoken, the same will judge all on that great day.
He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
WHOSOEVER LOVES OTHERS WILL NOT WANT TO SIN:
THEY WON’T WANT HAVE PRIDE OF LIFE
THEY WON’T WANT TO LIE
THEY WON’T WANT TO HATE
THEY WON’T WANT TO DEFRAUD
THEY WON’T WANT TO CHEAT
THEY WON’T WANT TO STEAL
BUT WHEN WE DO THESE THINGS, we WILL BE CONVICTED AND WILL SEEK GOD’S FORGIVENESS AND CLEANSING FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
SEE HIS EXAMPLE for UNDERSTANDING:
 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.
 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.
When under conviction we feel as failures before God but when we walk in the Spirit we have confidence with God because we are depending on His Spirit.
 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
If we regard iniquity in our heart, the LORD WILL NOT HEAR US.
 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
1John 4:  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
The ends days show us that the wicked will welcome the fake “messiah” openly denying the True God and His Son Jesus.
We who are saved however, will want to conform into HIS IMAGE.
 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
The world tolerates, promotes and even loves any religion that is not Bible Christianity – ALL OF THEM. You see Satan created them all and His Mother of Harlots has completely twisted our Lord's Message to us on purpose not allowing anyone to enter into Christ's Kingdom.
 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
**NOTE that all 3 books of John match the Gospel of John and match the description of those saved in the Book of the Revelation. They all emphasize our life for Him because He gave His life for us.
 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
He hated the world and its satanic systems just as we are to do.
 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Godly fear versus the world’s fear of the temporary.
 We love him, because he first loved us.
 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
1John 5:  Whosoever 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.
 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
CAUSES US A FEELING OF LOSS OF MISSING OUT ON THE WORLD OR SORRY TO NOT LOVE the WORLD.
 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
**REVELATION reference of the Seven Churches. Remember how HE tells each that they must overcome the world. BE AS HE WAS IN THIS WICKED WORLD>
 This 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.
 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
Jesus Christ himself is the one who came by water and by blood—not by the water only, but by the water and the blood. The Spirit bears witness to this, for the Spirit is the truth. The witness therefore is a triple one—the Spirit in our own hearts, the signs of the water of baptism and the blood of atonement—and they all say the same thing.
 If 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.
 He 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.
 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
 These 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.
AGAIN, THIS IS THE THEME of I, II, III JOHN:
 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
 If 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.
REJECTION OF CHRIST THROUGH BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT is the sin UNTO eternal death and separation from God for all eternity.
 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
 We 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.
**Another reference to the Spirit’s SEAL upon us and our inability to turn from the True God unto idols ever again.
 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
 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.
**More work of the Holy Spirit indwelling us.
 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
Once our Lord Jesus Christ is rejected then all their sin is upon them and they will not escape.
2 John 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;
** We love them because God loves us. This is not natural love for no one can love their neighbor as themselves NATURALLY. We show Christ's love through the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us.
 For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.
**Another indication of the Spirit’s indwelling of us, sealing us and keeping us until the day of Redemption.
 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.
**Just as we heard before in John, I John, all the Gospels and the REVELATION:
John calls the lady in 2 John “the elect” because she believed in Jesus Christ and was therefore saved; SHE IS PART OF GOD’S ELECTORATE WHO HAVE ELECTED JESUS AS THEIR ONLY KING OF KINGS. She was a member of the Body of Christ in the first century. It is better to view this lady as an unnamed friend of John who had actual children who were losing their lives down here in Jesus' Name.
 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.
**This is God’s Righteousness imputed on us and makes us want to emulate our Lord and Saviour’s earthly teachings and life.
 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.
Don’t quench the Spirit, follow HIS guidance and conviction.
 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.
Again, we can never turn from the True God now and back to idols. The indwelling Spirit convinces us not to.
 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
**NOR God Bless, nor any Godly salutation because they are not of God. All of the harlots under the Mother teach these falsities. We are to separate from all of them.
 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
 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 children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.
3 John 1:  The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth.
**Spiritual love like God has for all His children who follow and obey Him.
 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
**The prayers to God for functional ability to spread HIS Word and Glorify Him by our suffering and death for Him.
 For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.
 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
**Those he gave seed to and watered and has discipled them to follow Christ.
 Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers;
LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF AGAIN, are you starting to see the theme yet?
 Which have borne witness of thy charity before the church: whom if thou bring forward on their journey after a godly sort, thou shalt do well:
 Because that for his name's sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles.
**Not begging for mammon but minsters with a pure heart toward God. No merchandising was ever done by Christ’s true followers.
 We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellowhelpers to the truth.
**Help those ministers who only follow Christ in their teachings.
 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.
 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
**Those mammon loving preachers who only want to draw disciples unto themselves for mammon’s sake.
 Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth itself: yea, and we also bear record; and ye know that our record is true.
**EVEN IN THE FIRST CENTURY GOD’S APOSTLES HAD TO NAME the NAMES OF FALSE TEACHERS AND conversely God's TRUE TEACHERS. They marked those who were wolves so the early believers would stay away from their damnable heresies and guided the believers toward those teachers who truly followed our Lord out of a pure heart.
 I had many things to write, but I will not with ink and pen write unto thee:
 But I trust I shall shortly see thee, and we shall speak face to face. Peace be to thee. Our friends salute thee. Greet the friends by name.
God used the Apostle John, this same Apostle to write the REVELATION. John had been sentenced to death by boiling in oil. The cauldron they placed him in to burn to death fell over and by Roman law at the time he could not be tried again by them so they exiled him to the Isle of Patmos.
He was covered in third degree burns all over his body and GOD wrote His Revelation through him in this weakened state.
REMEMBER: God only uses the base, the despised, the lowly by the world’s standards.
If it is beautiful and therefore expensive - IT IS NOT OF GOD! The Mother of harlots has done her job.
