There is no guess work when you know and you KNOW that you know.

It has been my priviledge to lead others to a saving knowledge of Christ Jesus. They have been drawn by the Father (Jn. 6:44), convicted of their being a helpless lost sinner,and believing the Word of God that Jesus is their only hope of salvation because of His work at Calvary.

They have believed with all their heart that Jesus paid the price for their salvation by becoming sin for them, by taking the wrath of God the father against the sin that His Son became, so that sinful man could be saved.

Jesus who had no sin of His own became sin for us. Do you believe God's Word? "Yes they answer." I believe them. Because He loves you, He died in your place, He paid your sin debt to God His Father. Do you believe Jesus did that? "Yes, I believe Jesus loves me and died in my place."

You have not believed with your whole heart before or you would have turned from your life in this world and put your complete faith in Jesus to save you and live His life through you. Do you know that? "Yes, I see that now."

The Word of God tells us in 1 Corinthians 15 that "Christ died for our sins...He was buried... and He rose again the third day... after His resurrection He was seen above five hundred breathern at once."

In Acts 1:8,9 Jesus promises Holy Spirit power to witness this saving Gospel "unto the uttermost part of the earth." Jesus blessed them and was taken up until a cloud received Him. He is seated at the right hand of God His Father and has promised to return (Jn.14:3) to call His believers up to meet Him in the air in 1 Thess (4:13-17).

By simple faith that God gives you to believe all that the Bible has said concerning your lost condition, and Jesus' promise to save you and give you His eternal life do you take Jesus to be your personal Savior? "Yes, I know that I can never save myself, and I receive Jesus, by faith alone as my personal Savior."

Before you put your complete trust in the Son of God as your Savior where would you have spent eternity after your body dies? "I would have spent eternity separated from God in the lake of fire with the devil and other rejectors of God."

If your body should die now, where would you spend eternity? "I would spend eternity in Heaven with other believers in Christ."


Most, if not all, of the readers of this post have had a similiar experience in your own salvation, and hopefully in leading others through the Bible while the Holy Spirit baptized the new convert into Christ Jesus.

Sadly, many have been left there. There was no follow - up except maybe water baptism. What about when SELF under the power of SATAN attacks this lamb? What about telling again with Holy Spirit teaching that JESUS saves completly! GOS SAYS SO!! THAT YE MAY KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE...(1John 5:13)

That eternal is Christ Jesus Life and He becomes your Life. They need to know. Go over it again until they KNOW THEY KNOW.

If We Confess

HOMOLOGEO - lit., to speak the same thing.

The Holy Spirit convicts the Christian of sin. The Christian agrees that he/she is guilty of that particular sin.

Confession, as used in our verse 1 John 1:9, is admitting oneself guilty of what the Holy Spirit has convicted inward, and now declared outward in penitent prayer.

God's ideal is for His child to be quick to agree that the sin is real and to turn from it and ask forgiveness. This being done immediately prevents a break in fellowship with the Father. "We walk in the light as He is in the light."

Because we children play in this world, we need constant cleaning. There is only one agent that is capable of constantly cleansing God's children from the dirty sin of this world - "THE BLOOD OF JESUS!"

It is so good to be back again with you. Our Lord had me busy in ministry.

What does our Bible teach concerning walking (continually) IN the Light?
We know from previous study that it does not mean that Christians do not sin. We also know that Christians can walk most of the time IN the Christian walk -- that is, with Christ in control of the life.

People, other Christians, and to some extent, people in the world apart from God can see a rightness about the life. Christ in charge is very different than Christian in charge.Children are in fellowship or out of fellowship with the Father.

Our answer to what does it mean to live this Life is taught in our next three verses. 1 John 1:8,9,and 10 continues with confession. Confessing that God's Word is true and must be lived IN our daily lives is made abundantly clear.

"If we say..., If we confess...If we say... is how the Holy Spirit teaches us to KNOW God's truth in these three verses.
First we must agree with God that every human born unto woman is born apart from God and His holiness, Christ Jesus being the only exception.
"If we say that we have no sin..." we are in the most dangerous position we can be in as Christians. 1 John is written to those who are IN Christ, little children who belong to God. We are sealed human beings,placed inside of Christ Himself by the Holy Spirit, and can never be apart from God positionally - but we CAN be totally outside of God's will and controlled by our old selfish will.

In this CONDITION, we can not please our Father.
Think of it... nothing we can do, say, or think is pleasing to our Savior. Then we say, "I have no sin..." "I just do not understand what is separating me from the sweet fellowship I used to have with my Lord."
God says, "WE ARE SELF DECEIVED.God's TRUTH is not IN us."

When we walked in the TRUTH of God's Word - we walked in His LIGHT - we were completely CONTROLLED by Christ's Eternal Life. Now we have allowed our old ways to take us back and to tell God that His way is wrong.

There is only one way out of this ungodly mess. It is to completely turn back to our Father and with a broken heart; cry out "Father, I HAVE SINS!"
"If we confess our sins..." next time.

Great to be back to GOODNEWS.
The Good News is that Christ Jesus is STILL our Good News. Trust that you had a wonderful time with family and friends during our Christmas and New Year break. We Did.

Our study of First John continues verse by verse. We have worked our way through verse six of chapter one. We are dealing with Fellowship. John has explained that we Christians (those spoken to and us)may have fellowship with "us" vs. 3, and that your (them and us)joy may be full vs.4.

The fact that they (Apostles) have declared Jesus as the Christ. Matthew proved this fact to the Jews and John is proving it to the World. God is Light and in Him is NO darkness - No not any! For a person to say they are walking IN God, but showing darkness in the life is a lie.

BUT if we walk IN the Light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship Gr. (koinonia) - with God. This is an experience. We have something in common with God.

John was exposing false teachers (then and now). This same Church problem existed ca A.D. 90 as now, and prompted the Holy Spirit to shed light on it in Second Peter and Jude. False teachers had slipped in and were soft on known sin. Their teaching, no doubt in elegant speech, was that you can have fellowship with God and live any way you please.

Today we have the same problem and the same solution. Plead the BLOOD. If you are caught up in this being friends with the world, follow John's Word and confess it as what it is - SIN. Then be cleansed by the only remedy - apply the Blood of our Savior spiritually.

Our Church's weakness? Worldliness, which leads to no fellowship experience with our God, and no witness of the Holy Spirit through us. We Christians have exchanged our old sin controlled life for Spirit controlled Christ's eternal life. Sin does not touch His life, and when we walk IN Christ's Life, the Blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth (continuously) FROM all sin.

Happy New Year! 2010

An old decade has passed and a new one has begun. The study of 1 John will continue in our new year. We can be sure that there will be new challenges ahead and more opportunities in this year.

Bible study makes it possible to understand what our Lord wants to do through us for others. There are so many wonderful areas open for ministry. We are not all called to foreign lands. But we are commanded to assist those who are called, and to do the work of an evangelist as individuals.

So we welcome the new year with expectation. Let us be about our Father's business. He is faithful that calleth us, who also will do it.
