Prayerfully Turn Your Authorized King James Bible Versions To 1 John 5:1
1 John 5:1 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.
In Our Study Of The First Four Chapters Of 1 John We've Already Biblically Explained What It Means To Be "Born Of God (Born Again) And Have Love". Please Refer Back To Those Studies For This Information. This Information Can Be Found On The Faithwriters Website.
1 John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. 1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith.
God And Jesus Have Made It Perfectly Clear That If A "Christian" Does Not Obey God's Biblical Word They Do Not Love God. God Is Not Impressed With Human Expressions Of Love. God And Jesus Both Demand Obedience To God's Word (Luke 6:46; John 15:10-15; Exodus 20:5-6; Matthew 7:13-29; Matthew 25:1-12).
God's Commandments Are Not Greivous Or "Hard" To Follower. Many Christians Just Want To "See" And Have Things Their Way. They Don't Want To Sacrifice For God. Other Christians Are Misled By False Teachers And/Or False Beliefs. Most Christians Don't Know How To Be "Born Again" By God's Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost). The Holy Spirit Actually Will Do All The Work Helping Christians Be Obedient To God (John 14:26).

Faith Is Not Worrying But Trusting And Obeying God Even If This Seems Illogical Or Possible Lost Exists (Hebrews 11:5-6; Philippians 4:6-8; Matthew 6:25-34; Proverbs 3:5-7; Proverbs 29:25; John 14:1-5; Matthew 14:20-33; John 16:1-33).
1 John 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
We Christians May Not Be "Victorious" In The Worldly Sense But We Are Overcomers In The Spirit (Revelation 12:11).
1 John 5:6 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.
How Did Jesus Come By Water And Blood?
Jesus Was Born Through A Human Woman. Thus He "Came" Through Water And Blood. Jesus Was Also Water Baptized And Shed His Blood On The Cross. God Accepted Jesus's Precious Blood As Atonement For Human Sin. Christians Who Believe In Jesus And Obey Him Are "Born Again" And Will Enter Heaven (Matthew 1:18-20; Matthew 3:13-17; Matthew 27:50-54).
A Christian Who Is Born Again Of Holy Spirit Will Always Bear Witness Concerning Jesus Christ (The Only Begotten Son Of God) (John 3:1-8; John 14:1-26).
1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 1 John 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
There Are Arguments That Certain Of These Verses Should Not Be In The Bible. Since The Information Is In Full Harmony With The Bible's Teachings I Will Explain It.
A Person Who Diligently Studies The Bible Under The Direction Of The Holy Spirit Will Clearly See That God Is Jesus Is The Holy Ghost. These Three Are Omnipresence At All Times.
Anyone Wishing To Obey Jesus And Enter Heaven Should Accept His Blood To Atone For Our Sins And Should Be Water Baptized. This Is What Jesus Commanded. They Must Be Full Immersed In Water As Jesus Was. Baptism Is A Symbol Of Humans Dying Of Their Pre Jesus Life (Immersing) And (Rising) To Do Jesus' Will. Any Christian Who Do So Will Become One With God (Jesus) Through The Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) (Matthew 3:13-17; Matthew 20:22-23; Mark 16:16).
Jesus Warned At Matthew 16:16 That All Believers Must Be Baptized To Be Saved Into Heaven. If They Didn't Believe (And Get Baptized) They Would Be Damned To Eternal Hell.
You Can Get Baptized By A Bible Believing Church Or You Can Have A Believing Christian Baptize You In A Tub Or Pool. You Must Be Immersed As Jesus Was. Many Churches Expect You To Become Their Member If They Baptize You. Jesus Did Not Equate Church Membership With Baptism. Prayerfully Weigh Your Options And Ask God For The Holy Spirit's Wisdom. Whatever You Do Make Sure You Are Immersed In Water In The Name Of God The Father, Son And Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:18-20). You Will Then Be One With God The Father, Son And Holy Ghost.
1 John 5:9 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. 1 John 5:10 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.
Never Worry About What A Human Says. If The Matter Can Not Be Proven By God's Holy Word You Are Obligated To Obey God Above Humans Or God Will Not Bless You With His Holy Spirit's Direction (Acts 5:29-32).
1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 1 John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; [and] he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 1 John 5:13 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.
There Is Authority And Eternal Life In The Blessed Name Of Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17; 1 John 1:7-10; Acts 4:30-31; Acts 4:10-12).
1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 1 John 5:15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
When A Born Again Christian Prays According To God's Will The Christian Can Be Certain That God Hears The Prayer. The Praying Christian Must Be Patient Trusting In God To Act As He So Wills.
1 John 5:16 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. 1 John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
Jesus Said That The Only Sin That God Would Not Forgive Is Blaspheme Against God's Holy Spirit. Otherwise Christians Can Pray That God Forgive And Help Others To Repent Of Their Sins (Matthew 12:31; 1 John 1:7-10).
1 John 5:18 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.
Satan Can Have No Victory Over A Person Who Is "Born Again (Born Of God)". A Born Again Christian Will Always Have Spiritual Victory Over Satan's Entire "Ungodly" System (John 3:1-8; Galatians 5:1-26; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 4:1-11).
1 John 5:19 [And] we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
A Christian Who Wants To Obey Jesus And Enter Heaven Must Accept That The World Is Led By Satan And Is God's Enemy.

1 John 5:20 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.
God's Holy Spirit Will Reveal To Born Again Christians What God Wants Them To Know. A Born Again Christian Never Has To Seek Some Other Source For "Revelation(s)" Or "Truth" (John 4:24; John 17:17; Psalm 119:105; John 3:1-16).
1 John 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
It's Interesting How The Apostle Paul Ended 1st John With A Prohibition Against Idols.
Essentially The Book Of 1st John Was About Fasle Prophets (Teachers), Antichrist(s) And God Begetting Bible Obeying Christians With The Holy Spirit So That No Other Source Was Needed To "Instruct (Lead)" Them.
Whenever We Place Anything In A Position That Only God Should Have This Is Idolatry (Exodus 20:1-6).
A Church Reverend Advised A Church Member To Leave Their Home Bible Open To Psalm 91. The Reverend Said That This Would Keep Evil Away. A Priest Told A Person To Use Holy Water To Ward Off Evil.
God's Holy Bible Says That Jesus Already Gave Bible Obeying Christians Authority (Power) Over Evil. Thus There Is No Reason To Trust In Open Bibles Or Holy Water To Ward Off Evil.
Christians Already Have The Authority To Rebuke And Cast Out Evil. In The Case Where God Allows His Servants To Experience Evil Situations Christians Can Trust In God That He Is Faithful And Will Never Leave Them Nor Forsake Them (Luke 10:1-3, 9-20; Matthew 4:1-11; Psalm 23:1-6; Psalm 69:1-4, 14; Matthew 6:9-15; 2 Corinthians 12:1-7).
If A Person Gives Attention To Anyone Or Anything That Belongs To God Or Is God's Responsibility It Is Idolatry. A Suffering Person Should Never Focus On The Suffering But Should Cast Down Such Physical Suffering With Faith In God The Spirit. God And His Word Are The Healers. Christians Are Healed And Delivered By The Stripes Of Jesus Christ (Matthew 14:20-33; 2 Corinthians 10:1-12; Exodus 15:26; Psalm 107:20; Exodus 20:1-11; Hebrews 11:5-6; James 1:5-8; Matthew 6:9-13; Psalm 112:7; Philippians 4:6-8; Matthew 8:16-17; 1 Peter 2:24; Isaiah 53:3-5).
Jesus Christ Is The Only Priest That God Presently Recognizes (Hebrews 3:1; Romans 10:4). If A "Christian" Is Still Supporting A "Priestly" System It Is Idolatry. That "Priest" Is Disobeying God's Word And Is A False "Prophet". We've Already Learned That The Bible's Definition Of A "Prophet" Is Anyone Who Is Speaking Or Teaching In God's Name. Please Refer Back To Our Study On 1 John Chapter 4 For This Information.
If You Or I Am Lifting Our Eyes, Hopes, Passions Or Aspirations To Anyone Else Other Than God (Jesus) It Is Idolatry (John 3:1-8).
We Must Flee From Idols.
