New International Version

2 John

The elder,

To the lady chosen by God and to her children, whom I love in the truth—and not I only, but also all who know the truth— because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us forever:

Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son, will be with us in truth and love.

It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us. And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.

I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch out that you do not lose what we[a] have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. 11 Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.

12 I have much to write to you, but I do not want to use paper and ink. Instead, I hope to visit you and talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be complete.

13 The children of your sister, who is chosen by God, send their greetings.

Knijga O Kristu

Druga Ivanova poslanica

- radi istine koja je trajno u nama i bit će s nama zauvijek.

Neka budu s nama milost, milosrđe i mir koji dolaze od Boga Oca i od njegova Sina Isusa Krista u istini i ljubavi.

život u istini

Silno sam se obradovao što sam među tvojom djecom našao takve koji žive u istini, kao što nam je zapovjedio Otac.

A sada te molim, Gospođo, da volimo jedni druge. Ne pišem ti to neku novu zapovijed, već onu koju smo imali od početka.

Ljubav se sastoji u tomu da živimo po Božjim zapovijedima. živite u toj zapovijedi da ljubite jedni druge, kao što ste čuli od početka.

U svijetu su se pojavili brojni zavodnici koji ne priznaju da je Isus Krist došao na zemlju u tijelu. Takvi su ljudi obmanjivači i antikristi.

Pazite da ne izgubite ono što ste već stekli, nego da primite potpunu plaću.

Tko god zakorači izvan Kristova učenja, neće imati zajedništva s Bogom. Ali tko ostane u Kristovu učenju, imat će zajedništvo i s Ocem i sa Sinom.

10 Dođe li vas tko poučavati, a ne donosi to učenje, ne pozivajte ga u svoj dom i ne pozdravljajte ga.

11 Pozdravljate li ga, sudionici ste u njegovim zlodjelima.

Završetak i pozdrav

12 Mnogo vam još toga imam reći, ali ne želim to učiniti u pismu. Nadam se da ću doći k vama i licem u lice s vama razgovarati da naša radost bude potpuna.

13 Pozdravljaju te djeca tvoje sestre,[a] izabranice Božje.
