Wesley's Notes for 1 John 2:22


2:22 Who is that liar - Who is guilty of that lying, but he who denies that truth which is the sum of all Christianity? That Jesus is the Christ; that he is the Son of God; that he came in the flesh, is one undivided truth. and he that denies any part of this, in effect denies the whole. He is antichrist - And the spirit of antichrist, who in denying the Son denies the Father also.

    Verse 29: To do righteousness means to believe in Jesus. The Lords commandments are to believe in Him and to Love one another. Once a person does this he is righteous because Jesus cleanses him from all his unrighteousness. "let no man deceive you. he that doeth righteousness (Believes in Jesus) is righteous, even as He is righteous." (IJohn 3:7)
  • A disciple
    "Do not ye love the world, nor those things that be in the world. If any man loveth the world, the charity of the Father is not in him. For all thing that is in the world, is covetousness of flesh, and covetousness of eyes, and pride of life, which is not of the Father, but it is of the world." The things that the ungodly in a fury and daring defiance do against the Spirit of Christ and obedience.
  • A disciple
    "Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning." That which was pronounced by God Himself to the wicked one to his face, in the presence of two witnesses, the man and his wife; IS THE COMMANDMENT for our Salvation; unto which hope the holy in all ages by love served God.
