No one who [habitually] denies (disowns) the Son even has the Father. Whoever confesses (acknowledges and has) the Son has the Father also.
As for you, keep in your hearts what you have heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the first dwells and remains in you, then you will dwell in the Son and in the Father [always].
And this is what He Himself has promised us–the life, the eternal [life].
I write this to you with reference to those who would deceive you [seduce and lead you astray].
But as for you, the anointing (the sacred appointment, the unction) which you received from Him abides [permanently] in you; [so] then you have no need that anyone should instruct you. But just as His anointing teaches you concerning everything and is true and is no falsehood, so you must abide in (live in, never depart from) Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him], just as [His anointing] has taught you [to do].
And now, little children, abide (live, remain permanently) in Him, so that when He is made visible, we may have and enjoy perfect confidence (boldness, assurance) and not be ashamed and shrink from Him at His coming.
If you know (perceive and are sure) that He [Messiah] is [absolutely] righteous [conforming to the Father’s will in purpose, thought, and action], you may also know (be sure) that everyone who does righteously [and is therefore in like manner conformed to the divine will] is born (begotten) of Him [the Almighty].
On This Note, Long Note At That, I’m Led To Close And Post The Matter …

Need to edit and format before I post. Right now? Don’t feel too good. Will break for a bit. Back at 4:40 pm. Finished editing. As I edited the chapter You opened my eyes to see.
- None of my former Christian teachers ever thought to question oneself on the matter.
- In reading this time, it came to me, Am I the guilty one?
- In the past, living by my and others understanding of the written words?
Yes! Indeed! Guilty! But! …
Thank goodness! You have set me free from my carnal past. No need to rehash words without knowledge anymore. Experience not words is what matters here.
Experience Never Before Conceived In My Mind …
Your Presence in my heart and mind was never experienced as I am experiencing now. You are so real! Indeed! There is hope in death. Death to the ways of this world.
