THE FIRST EPISTLE OF IaHUChaNaN

CHAPTER ONE
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;
(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and testify, and proclaim to you that life everlasting, which was with the Father, and was rendered apparent to us;)
That which we have seen and heard we openly make known to you, that you also may have partnership with us: and truly our partnership is with the Father, and with His Son IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh. [The "Messiah"]
And these things write we, that your joy may be abundant.
This then is the message which we have heard from Him, and declare to you, that IaHUeH is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.
If we say that we have partnership with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and not do the Truth:
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, partnership we have with one another, and the blood of IaHUShUA His Son purifies us from all sin.
If we say that we have not sinned, ourselves we deceive, and the Truth is not in us.
If we aknowledge our sins, faithful He is and equitable to send forth these sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If we say that we have not sinned, a liar we make Him, and His word is not in us.
CHAPTER TWO
MY little children, these things write I to you, that ye sin not. And if any one sin, we have an advocate with the Father, IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh the Righteous:
And He is the atonement for our sins: and not for our's only, but also concerning the whole world.
And hereby we do aknowledge that we understand Him, if His Commandments we diligently attend to.
Who says, I know Him, and does not diligently attend to His Commandments, is a liar, and in him the Truth is not.
But whoever diligently attends to His Word, into this one verily is the love of IaHUeH perfected: by this know we that in Him we are.
Who says in Him they abide ought even as that One walked (ordered His life) also themself in this Way to walk,.
Beloved, no new Commandment I write to you, but an old Commandment which you had from the beginning. The old Commandment is the Word which you have heard.
Again, a new Commandment I write to you, which thing is True in Him and in you: because the darkness is passing, and the True Light already shines.
The one saying in the light they are, and hates their kindren (all life is related, we are kin to all of creation), is in darkness even until now.
The one loving their kindren abides in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling (scandal) in them.
But the one hating their kindren is in darkness, and walks in darkness, and percieves not where they go, because that darkness has blinded their eyes.
I write to you, little children, because are sent away from you these sins through His Name.
I write to you, elders, because you have aknowledged this One from the start. I write to you, youths, because you have overcome this evil. I write to you, little children, because you have aknowledged the Father.
I have written to you, elders, because you have aknowledged this One from the start. I have written unto you, youths, because you are strong, and the word of IaHUeH abides in you, and you have overcome this evil.
Love not the world, neither the things in the world. If a certain one love the world, not is the love of the Father in them.
For all that is in the world, the longing of the flesh, and the longing of the eyes, and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but from the world is.
And the world leads away to nothing, and the longing of it: but the one doing the will of IaHUeH abides into this forever.
Little children, the final hour exists: and as you have heard that anti-Messiah shall come, (anti=opposite, instead of, in the place of, before, or against, reminicent of IaHUeH's first Commandment) even now are many anti-Messiahs ("Christians") beginning to be; whereby we know that the final hour exists.
Out of us they went, but they were not from us; for if from us they had been, they would have continued with us: moreover that it be rendered apparent that they were not all from us.
But you have an annointing from the Set Apart One, and you percieve all things.
I have not written to you because not you percieve the truth, but because you discern the same, and that any lie is not of theTruth.
Who is a liar if not the one that contradicts that IaHUShUA is Ha-MaShIaCh? He is anti-Messiah, that denies the Father and the Son.
This any that denies the Son, the same has not the Father: the one agreeing with the Son also the Father has.
What you have heard from the beginning let that abide in you, if in you shall remain that which from the beginning you have heard, also you in the Son, and in the Father shall continue.
And this is the promise that He has promised us, this life everlasting.
These things have I written to you concerning them that lead astray you.
But the anointing which you have received of Him abides in you, and you don't have need that any one teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and Truth is, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in Him.
And now, little children, abide in Him; that, in case He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed away from Him at His coming.
If you discern that He is righteous, ye know that also every one that works this equity (righteousness) from Him is born.
CHAPTER THREE
BEHOLD, what manner of Love has bestowed upon us the Father, that children of IaHUeH we should be called: also we are, on account of this the world recognizes not us, because it not knew Him.
Beloved, now are we the children of IaHUeH, and not yet is it apparent what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall be rendered apparent, like Him we shall be; for we shall behold Him even as He is.
And each that has this confidence in Him purifies theirself, even as He is pure.
Any that works sin even does violate the Law: indeed this sin is the violation of the Law.
And you know that He was manifested to these sins lift away; and sin in Him not is. bookmark
Any that abides in Him sins not: any that sin have not percieved Him, neither known Him.
Little children, let no one deceive you: the one that works equity is righteous, even as He is equitable.
The one that works sin is from the do-evil; since the adversary sins from the beginning. For this the was manifested Son of IaHUeH, that He unbind the works of the do-evil.
Each that is born by IaHUeH does not make sin; for His seed remaineth in them: and they are not able to sin, because of IaHUeH they are born.
In this the children of IaHUeH are rendered apparent, and the children of the do-evil: any that does not righteousness is not of IaHUeH, neither the one that loves not their kindren.
For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
Not as Cain, from that evil was, and slew his brother. And for what reason slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.
Marvel not, kindren, if the world hate you.
We know that we have passed from death into life, because we Love the kindren. The one that Loves not, abides in death.
Each that hates their kindren a murderer is: and you know that no murderer has life everlasting in them abiding.
Hereby we recognize the Saviour's love, because He for us, His breath of life laid down: and we owe it for the sake of the kindren this breath of life to lay down.
But whosoever has this world's life (Resources), and sees their kin have need, and shuts up their bowels (of compassion) from them, how can the love of IaHUeH dwell in them?
Little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in Truth.
And hereby we know that coming from the Truth we are, and in front of Him shall assure our hearts.
Because if finds fault our heart in us, greater is IaHUeH than our heart, and knows all things.
Beloved, if our heart not finds fault, all out-spokenness have we to the advantage of IaHUeH.
And that in case we ask, we receive from Him, because His Commandments we diligently attend to, and those that are pleasing in His sight do.
And this is His Commandment, That we should trust this Name of His Son IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh, and Love one another, even as He gave Commandment to us.
And the one that attends carefully to His Commandments in Him dwelleth, and He in them. And in this we recognize that He dwells in us, by the Spirit (breath of life) which He has given us.
CHAPTER FOUR
BELOVED, believe not every spirit, but test the spirits whether from this IaHUeH they are: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
In this thing you can distinguish the Spirit of IaHUeH: Every spirit that confirms that IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh in the flesh is come of IaHUeH is:
And every spirit that not confirms this IaHUShUA of IaHUeH not is: and this is that anti-Messiah, which you have heard that it should come; even now in the world it is already.
You are from IaHUeH, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He in you, than this in the world.
They of the world are: therefore of the world speak they, and the world them hears. (this is as far as I have gotten with the word for word revision. I will update this file periodically.)
We are from IaHUeH: he that knoweth IaHUeH heareth us; he that is not of IaHUeH 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 IaHUeH; and every one that loveth is born of IaHUeH, and knoweth IaHUeH.
He that loveth not, knoweth not IaHUeH; for IaHUeH is love.
In this was manifested the love of IaHUeH toward us, because that He sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
Herein is love, not that we loved IaHUeH, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
Beloved, if IaHUeH so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
No man hath seen IaHUeH at any time. If we love one another, IaHUeH 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 IaHUShUA is the Son of IaHUeH, IaHUeH dwelleth in him, and he in IaHUeH.
And we have known and believed the love that IaHUeH hath toward us. IaHUeH is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in IaHUeH, and IaHUeH 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.
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.
We love Him, because He first loved us.
If a man say, I love IaHUeH, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love IaHUeH Whom he hath not seen?
And this Commandment have we from Him, That he who loveth IaHUeH love his brother also.

CHAPTER FIVE
WHOSOEVER believeth that IaHUShUA is Ha-MaShIaCh is born of IaHUeH: 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 IaHUeH, when we love IaHUeH, and keep His Commandments.
For this is the love of IaHUeH, that we keep His Commandments: and His Commandments are not grievous.
For whatsoever is born of IaHUeH 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 IaHUShUA is the Son of IaHUeH?
This is He that came by water and blood, even IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh; 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 things that bear witness:
The Spirit, the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
If we receive the witness of men, the witness of IaHUeH is greater: for this is the witness of IaHUeH which He hath testified of His Son.
He that believeth on the Son of IaHUeH hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not IaHUeH, hath made Him a liar; because he believeth not the record that IaHUeH gave of His Son.
And this is the record, that IaHUeH 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 IaHUeH hath not life.
These things have I written unto you that believe on the Name of the Son of IaHUeH; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the Name of the Son of IaHUeH.
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 heareth 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.
All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
We know that whosoever is born of IaHUeH sinneth not; but he that is begotten of IaHUeH keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
And we know that we are of IaHUeH, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
And we know that the Son of IaHUeH has 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 IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh. This is the true Elohim, and eternal life.
Little children, keep yourselves from "mighty ones".
