Truth Verses from I John 3

I John 3 shares with us these words ...

Behold, what manner of (agape) Love The Father (YHVH) hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called (by Him) the sons (children) of G-d (Elohim; YHVH): therefore the world (and those who are "of" this world's "system") knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.

Beloved, now are we the sons (children) of G-d (Elohim; YHVH), 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.

(Who is "He" this verse refers to? Yeshua, The only-begotten Son of YHVH, our Father in Heaven, for all who believe in & trust in & obey Him & His Son, Yeshua)

And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure. ("He" is Yeshua)

Whoever committeth sin transgresseth also the Torah (the words "the law" as used in the KJ version of the Scriptures actually refers to "the Torah" which is in the Tanakh and includes the first 5 books written down by Moshe, but authored by YHVH Himself): for sin is the transgression of the Torah.

And ye know that He (Yeshua) was manifested (on earth) to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin. (true!)

Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him.

Little children (followers of Yeshua, YHVH G-d's Son), let no man deceive you: he that doeth Righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.

He that committeth sin is of the devil (deceiver); for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose The Son of G-d (YHVH; Elohim) was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

Whosoever is born of G-d (YHVH; Elohim) does not commit sin; for His Seed remaineth in him (the believer in Yeshua): and he cannot sin, because he is born of G-d (YHVH; Elohim).

In this the children of G-d (YHVH) are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not Righteousness is not of G-d (YHVH), neither he that loveth not his brother.

For this is the message (or commandment) 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 (why) slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother (Abel)'s righteous.

Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not (his) brother abideth in death.

Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. (abiding is the key word, here)

Hereby perceive we the (agape) Love (of G-d), because He laid down His (Yeshua's, His Son's) Life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

But whoso hat this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels (of compassion) from him, how dwelleth the love of G-d (YHVH) 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, G-d (YHVH) is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.

Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, (then) have we confidence toward G-d.

And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His Commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His Sight.

And this is His Commandment, That we should believe on The Name of His Son Yeshua haMashiach (The Messiah of YHVH), and (agape) 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 (Ruach haChodesh) which (Who) He hath given us.

-- Yochanan (John) shared these words of truth with us, so we would know "The "Man" Who is The Truth, The Way, ... and The Life."
