    The 2nd Letter of John

    2nd John 1:1 The elder, to the chosen lady and her children, whom I love in reality; and not only I, but also all they that have known the reality;

    2nd John 1:2 through the reality dwelling in us, and into the New Covenant Age.

    2nd John 1:3 Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in reality and love.

    2nd John 1:4 I rejoiced greatly to find your children walking in reality, as we have received a command from the Father.

    2nd John 1:5 And now I am asking you, lady, not as though I wrote a new command to you, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

    2nd John 1:6 And this is love that we walk according to His commands. This is the command, that, as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it.

    2nd John 1:7 For many deceivers have entered into the world who confess that Jesus Christ has not come in the flesh. These are deceivers and antichrists.

    2nd John 1:8 Lookout for yourselves that you do not destroy those things with which you have labored, but that you receive a full reward.

    2nd John 1:9 Whoever falls away, and is not continuing in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. He that continues in the teaching of Christ, he has also the Father and the Son.

    2nd John 1:10 If anyone comes to you, and does not bring this teaching, do not take him into your house and not to rejoice with him:

    2nd John 1:11 for he that rejoices with him participates in his evil work.

    2nd John 1:12 Having many things to write to you, I will not with pen and paper: but I trust to be brought to you, and speak mouth to mouth, that our joy may be full.

    2nd John 1:13 The children of your chosen sister are greeting you. Amen.
