Book of First John (Lesson 9) – the Testimony of God, the Three are One, and Keeping the Commandments of God
This is lesson 9 of the systematic Bible study of the Book of First John which covers 1 John 5:1-11. Practical advice is given to parents and teachers on how to teach these verses, and important doctrines are pointed out and discussed. The doctrines being covered are: #1 – Those that truly believe that Jesus is the Son of God are born of God and they love those that are born of God. #2 – We know that we love the children of God when we love God and we keep His commandments. #3 – We know that we love God when we keep the commandments and they are not grievous to us. #4 – Those that are born of God overcome the world through their faith, or because of their faith. #5 – There are three witnesses that testify that Jesus is the Son of God: God the Father, the Word (the Son of God), and the Spirit of God. #6 – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are one. #7 – The one that believes that Jesus is the Son of God has the Spirit of God in him. #8 – The one that does not believe that Jesus is the Son of God accuses God of being a liar, and the Spirit of God is not in them.
