No Sign-in/All Your Information Anonymous > THE WORD OF LIFE, 1John Chapter One

Brothers,

I will add to these studies hopefully each week.

The Word of Life

1John.1:1 That which was from the beginning, that which we have heard, that which we have seen with our eyes, that which we saw, and our hands touched, concerning the Word of life

What a powerful introduction by the aged apostle John concerning the Word of life! Who among men can say their words match perfect truth, and because it is perfect truth without unrighteousness it is life?

John.1:8 He was not the light, but was sent that he might testify about the light. 1:9 The true light that enlightens everyone was coming into the world. 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world didn't recognize him.
1:11 He came to his own, and those who were his own didn't receive him. 1:12 But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God's children, to those who believe in his name: 1:13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 1:14 The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.

One cannot separate the two and equal life, one word, every word must be truth to be the Word of life. The word must be the very fiber, and substance formed into every actions to say “I am the Word of life”. Adam was instructed by God to watch each animal to match their names to their actions, when God gives us a new name it will match the truth he has formed in us perfectly, like he has his own Son Christ Jesus.

John.1:18 No one has seen God at any time. The one and only Son,{NU reads "God"} who is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him.

John 5:24 "Most certainly I tell you, he who hears my word, and believes him who sent me, has eternal life, and doesn't come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

John 5:26 For as the Father has life in himself, even so he gave to the Son also to have life in himself.

Here we must balance our thoughts about the apostles time in the flesh with the Christ, why? Because there is nothing lacking in the Spirit the flesh would tells us otherwise it want physical contact hearing and touching the Lord of our faith. But the start of all things for the new creation is not found in the old birth, but the new one, in Christ, there we find the Spirit of love and comfort which teaches us all things about the love of our Father YHWH.

Jeremiah 23:4 I will set up shepherds over them, who shall feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be lacking, says Yahweh.

John 6:63 It is the spirit who gives life. The flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.

Romans 5:21 that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:4 We were buried therefore with him through baptism to death, that just like Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life.

The flesh is always active working to kill the Spirit in us, but the flesh is not the truth or the Word of life, it is instead death, and the word of lies. So the apostle John will write perhaps the strongest spiritual book of all the apostles mystifying and even misleading those of the flesh but not those that start life from the beginning with the new birth into a new creation, that is, into the righteous life of Christ, the light of our world.

Romans 8:8 Those who are in the flesh can't please God.

Romans 8:9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if it is so that the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if any man doesn't have the Spirit of Christ, he is not his.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new.

They will be moved to truth and Spirit, they will learn of the complete faith John puts into the Spirit that indwells each one of them; he under Holy Spirit will increase their faith a gift of God's from the fruit of his Holy Spirit so each one can rest in the power of God's love for them. Those of the flesh will find John's book a mystery filled with fear of judgments decreasing God's love for them into a legal books of commandments upon commandments, measuring line, upon measuring line until the fear drives them into ignoring the book of first John almost completely.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God didn't give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control.

Hebrews 2:15 and might deliver all of them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has punishment. He who fears is not made perfect in love.

Such truth and faith that John demonstrates in his writing is with confidence of few words he was moved by the Spirit to say: “those that cannot hear us, that is, God's anointed Spirit lead children are not from us”. The brothers need not go beyond the Holy Spirit and try to teach, read what false brothers were teachings, it was simple they cannot hear what the Spirit says, no matter what we say. He defines weeds, and wheat, he teaches what all the apostles taught about the flesh that we no longer know anyone by the flesh, not even Christ no more.

Romans 8:7 because the mind of the flesh is hostile towards God; for it is not subject to God's law, neither indeed can it be.

1Cor.2:13 Which things also we speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual things. 2:14 Now the natural man doesn't receive the things of God's Spirit, for they are foolishness to him, and he can't know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
2:15 But he who is spiritual discerns all things, and he himself is judged by no one.

1 John 4:6 We are of God. He who knows God listens to us. He who is not of God doesn't listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

John will develop and put to rest any such thinking that truth depends upon mankind works on this earth in his letter, he will show that its only by the teaching of the Spirit that we are not mislead not the other way around where idol worship was spouting up through prominent teachers writings. John will put all power into Christ his head for keeping truth and revealing truth to his brothers on earth, no need for fear in love, and if we are in God's love, even if we be unfaithful he is always faithful.

2 Timothy 2:13 If we are faithless, he remains faithful. He can't deny himself."

1 John 2:27 As for you, the anointing which you received from him remains in you, and you don't need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, you will remain in him.

1 John 5:6 This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.

Revelation 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" He who hears, let him say, "Come!" He who is thirsty, let him come. He who desires, let him take the water of life freely.

Christ is the truth, the life, the way, he is incorruptible, and will preserve truth for all generation to come, why? Because he is faithful and true, amen!

Revelation 3:14 "To the angel of the assembly in Laodicea write: "The Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Head of God's creation, says these things:

Revelation 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us, and washed us from our sins by his blood;

Hebrews 3:6 but Christ is faithful as a Son over his house; whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the glorying of our hope firm to the end.

Hebrews 10:23 let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering; for he who promised is faithful.

Fellowship With The Eternal

****1John1:2 (and the life was revealed, and we have seen, and testify, and declare to you the life, the eternal life, which was with the Father, and was revealed to us); 1:3 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us. Yes, and our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 1:4 And we write these things to you, that our joy may be fulfilled.


What can man do if he has no fellowship with dead? He builds for himself and others lasting monuments to recall their memories of the deceased. Yes, when fellowship lacks, when its lost icons, and idols are created. Religion is an idol, replacing the fellowship lost for Christian's with the Father and Son by Spirit and truth. You see, if one has fellowship with the Spirit, one needs nothing to know the truth of the person.

1 John 2:20 You have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all have knowledge.{Or, "know what is true." Or, "know all things."}

1 John 2:27 As for you, the anointing which you received from him remains in you, and you don't need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, you will remain in him.

Religion is a relationship with a bible, a teacher, an object, or by veneration of a building, or in the history of the religion, but its not truth and Spirit. Subsequently, to work within a religion to find the truth of who God's children are is an impossibility! It looking where those without a fellowship with the life, Christ Jesus try to explain him legally from a thought from their bibles, or a doctrine.

John.5:37 The Father himself, who sent me, has testified about me. You have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form.
5:38 You don't have his word living in you; because you don't believe him whom he sent. 5:39 "You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and these are they which testify about me. 5:40 Yet you will not come to me, that you may have life. 5:41 I don't receive glory from men.

Here we have stumbled once again upon why John declared his message so dynamically in Spirit because these brothers and sisters were putting letters of prominent brothers as equal to their relationship with Christ, the life in Spirit and truth second place. There can be nothing less than fellowship with Christ the eternal life if we want to feed on the bread of life which gives us the fruit of the Spirit in our being allowed through the eternal to associate with God the Father.

John.15:1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer.
15:2 Every branch in me that doesn't bear fruit, he takes away. Every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 15:3 You are already pruned clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 15:4 Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can't bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. 15:5 I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. 15:6 If a man doesn't remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

Now the stage is set the life had never been revealed to mankind before the eternal came to our earth, no one had seen and touched eternal life until Christ appeared in the flesh, Christ being the sinless lamb of God, he had God's own life indwelling him, he had eternal life in him. He was a light that no prophet had seen or felt like Christ Jesus. Christ did not have to go some where to be in contact with his own life, yes! Christ life was his Fathers life these brothers life, is Christ life, making them part of God's life there is no where to go! No writings had eternal life indwelling them, writings could encourage a son of God to put trust in the life, but it could not replace the life. How can our own body replace the life in it by attending a religious meeting?

John 6:63 It is the spirit who gives life. The flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.

John 6:51 I am the living bread which came down out of heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. Yes, the bread which I will give for the life of the world is my flesh."

John 5:26 For as the Father has life in himself, even so he gave to the Son also to have life in himself.

John 1:4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.

1 John 5:20 We know that the Son of God has come, and has given us an understanding, that we know him who is true, and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

It cannot! Our life is dependent upon the life of the body, hence, the life of Christ is the life of the body, his body, we need nothing to feed us, a religion, a book, a building, a writing once we get that in perfect contexts we get the point of John's letter. It is the mind of the body Christ that directs and feeds the body, but we can enslave Christ into other false headship where we listen to a human reading what the life speaks and says according to a religion doctrine, or we can put faith in Christ alone and walk in the truth, the light.

1 John 3:24 He who keeps his commandments remains in him, and he in him. By this we know that he remains in us, by the Spirit which he gave us.

1 John 4:13 By this we know that we remain in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.

1 John 5:6 This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.

The frame work is written by Holy Spirit, but without fellowship of the eternal, Spirit, its not truth, it is dead works, being explained by another person who is not eternal, an impossibility which promotes yeast teachings and doctrines that cannot give us life. Subsequently, John makes profound statements with no wiggle room, if a person is not in Spirit, the eternal life, Christ, John statements kills the flesh giving it no hope of righteousness, which is sinlessness.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me. That life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.

John's writing removes false religion, it strips all authority from the power of the flesh and puts our salvation and relationship with life, squarely where God himself places our eternal life in Christ Jesus. Where does on go higher, Christ is raised he is seated at God's right-hand. The body received the same, as Christ did upon earth in his flesh, where Christ was, is where true worship of God was found, not in some mountain, or building, or in the seas, we need not ask: “Who will go into heaven to bring Christ down, or the depth of sea to bring him up?”

Rom."Don't say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into heaven?'{Deuteronomy 30:12} (that is, to bring Christ down);
10:7 or, 'Who will descend into the abyss?'{Deuteronomy 30:13} (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead.)" 10:8 But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth, and in your heart;"{Deuteronomy 30:14} that is, the word of faith, which we preach: 10:9 that if you will confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10:10 For with the heart, one believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 10:11 For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes in him will not be disappointed."{Isaiah 28:16}

No! No! No! He is in you, he is your mouth the Spirit speaks through, he is in your heart, he is your life manifesting the light of his own life. Do we have faith in the Spirit, the eternal, or dead things? Where is your life, in a book, in a prophesy, in a truth uncovered by some research, or is what dwells in you eternal life?

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow.

Colossians 3:1 If then you were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God. 3:2 Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are on the earth.

Ephesians 1:21 far above all rule, and authority, and power, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in that which is to come.

Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.

The Message Announced

****John.1:5 This is the message which we have heard from him and announce to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and don't tell the truth. 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.

God is not both light and darkness even though many honestly believe he is. But why the confusion when here John states clearly the messages announced to all Christian's which is not obscured in darkness? What is that message? There is “no” darkness in God, or Christ Jesus his son.

1 John 2:8 Again, I write a new commandment to you, which is true in him and in you; because the darkness is passing away, and the true light already shines.


1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, that you may proclaim the excellence of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:

First, what is darkness in context to the apostle John's letter, and secondly, why does darkness in God even need to be addressed? Darkness in context to the bible is sin, the sin in all of us past on to the human race by Adam. God has no sin, nor does he have flesh that tempts him.

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.

1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

God is love, perfect love, where sin cannot be, making him the light, moreover, the source of eternal life for his morally created children. The confusion is by us sinners where we tried as we all do to make God more like us in feeling and thinking, which is impossible because those in a fleshly mind cannot please God, because he cannot think in sin and its desires.

1 John 3:5 You know that he was revealed to take away our sins, and in him is no sin.

James.1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God," for God can't be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one. 1:14 But each one is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed. 1:15 Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin; and the sin, when it is full grown, brings forth death.
1:16 Don't be deceived, my beloved brothers. 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow.

We as Christian's must understand that in our flesh is the desire to make all things flesh. In other words, one cannot plant corn and expect apples to come up. Each are a difference species God is not sin (flesh) he is Spirit, flesh never comes up when God's plants, but not so with us sinners.

Romans 8:7 because the mind of the flesh is hostile towards God; for it is not subject to God's law, neither indeed can it be.

Romans 8:8 Those who are in the flesh can't please God.

Isa.40:17 All the nations are like nothing before him. They are regarded by him as less than nothing, and vanity. 40:18 To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare to him?

We must never lose the true message, God is not a man with sin, grappling in doing what is righteous and good, we are, and as long as we are in our flesh we will grapple with imputing evil to God by our nature to sin. We must never think because we can read God's word and have accepted Christ that everything coming from us is a good well bubbling forth sweet water.

James 3:5 So the tongue is also a little member, and boasts great things. See how a small fire can spread to a large forest!

James 3:10 Out of the same mouth comes forth blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. 3:11 Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water?

Each Christian's must understand our flesh we live in is not sweet water, it issues both good and bad water something impossible with God. Thus, God does not accept our sins God instead blots out our sins by killing our flesh to its judgment. We must remember this message so we can stay in the light that of Christ life which allows us God's undeserved kindness, beyond any merit we can we can gain by our own flesh.

Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart; and you will find rest for your souls.

Rom.12:3 For I say, through the grace that was given me, to every man who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think reasonably, as God has apportioned to each person a measure of faith. 12:4 For even as we have many members in one body, and all the members don't have the same function, 12:5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

With this message we stay in the light, the truth, we understand God's love, which is, the truth of Christ followers, we understand how no judgment can exist in love that is God's own love, not our love; putting judgment of our flesh outside the light. We are under the superior divine law of God, the Royal law love, the Kingly law, we are saved out of this flesh under going death, by Spirit and truth, in Christ Jesus our life.

Matthew 5:44 But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you,

Luke 6:28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who mistreat you.

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has punishment. He who fears is not made perfect in love.

When we confuse this message we unwittingly planting weeds in our own hearts and that of others, where God is both, like us, good and evil, he than is ever changing like shadows under the tree of life. He has different standards one for this group, and one for another just like mankind. God becomes no more than an idol, a religion, always changing where we must defend the bad by the good, a never ending cycle of justification for God's so called sins.

1 John 4:16 We know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.

Romans 6:6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with him, that the body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be in bondage to sin.

The Truth Not In Us?


****1John.1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

The greatest restoration of truth for mankind happen long ago before we were born. Yes! Truth came to earth in the person of Christ Jesus since then many have confused the truth of God's word by claiming human are the truth because they read truth from their bibles which is a lie!

John 1:14 The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:17 For the law was given through Moses. Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

The apostle John tells us the truth by the Holy Spirit that we are sinners, hence, our flesh is a lie, it is not the standard of truth found in Christ Jesus who never sinned in word or deed. Let us not deceive ourselves and others. Let us state truth by saying we can have the truth in us, if we are a Christian, and we are in the son of God, our being in Christ is the truth. In other words, being “in the truth” literally means being in Christ, and him in us, anything less than that high standard of truth is a lie, and we are not found in the way!

James 3:14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, don't boast and don't lie against the truth.

Hebrews 6:18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we may have a strong encouragement, who have fled for refuge to take hold of the hope set before us.

Let us remove the foundation stone of error by false religion which is; our saying we are a sinner does not, once again, does not make us the truth or a lesser sinner than others. We are deceived if we believe that lie. Christ has no sin, he does not have degrees of sin as the fleshly mind judges humans sins by. Christ is sinless that is how we get rid of our deserved judgment for all sin is by being in the life of Christ, and his righteous sinless life is given us as God's mercy and kindness.

1 John 3:6 Whoever remains in him doesn't sin. Whoever sins hasn't seen him, neither knows him.

1 John 3:9 Whoever is born of God doesn't commit sin, because his seed remains in him; and he can't sin, because he is born of God.

1 Corinthians 8:6 yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we live through him.

2 Corinthians 13:4 For he was crucified through weakness, yet he lives through the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we will live with him through the power of God toward you.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me. That life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.

Christ is our truth in our fallen flesh which flesh is dead to God's judgment. When God looks at us, he looks at the blood of the pass-over lamb instead of our sins, we are saved in Christ life because his life is righteous without sin, it is his life in us that sanctifies us by being a part of his living life as his body members.

1 Corinthians 1:30 But of him, you are in Christ Jesus, who was made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption:

2 Corinthians 5:21 For him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf; so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Philippians 3:9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own, that which is of the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;

Titus 3:5 not by works of righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy, he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit.

Subsequently, if we say: “I have no sin.” We are a liar, because Christ is the only place on earth God has declared righteous, that is, in Christ everlasting life indwelling us. There are not many righteousness, there is one righteousness in Christ, and all the fruit on his tree comes not from our righteousness, but his. We humans can speak truth, but we are not the truth by any means of the stretch of the imagination.

Isaiah 11:10 It will happen in that day that the nations will seek the root of Jesse, who stands as a banner of the peoples; and his resting place will be glorious.

Malachi 4:1 "For, behold, the day comes, it burns as a furnace; and all the proud, and all who work wickedness, will be stubble; and the day that comes will burn them up," says Yahweh of Armies, "that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

Romans 11:18 don't boast over the branches. But if you boast, it is not you who support the root, but the root supports you.

Romans 15:12 Again, Isaiah says, "There will be the root of Jesse, he who arises to rule over the Gentiles; in him the Gentiles will hope."{Isaiah 11:10}

Revelation 22:16 I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify these things to you for the assemblies. I am the root and the offspring of David; the Bright and Morning Star."

Those looking to human righteousness in the flesh from others are deceived living a lie. They have been tricked as Eve was tricked in the Garden of Eden by Satan the Devil. The source of life, and righteousness comes from God too us through his Son Christ Jesus as the only good tree producing good fruit. Apart from that life there is no life but sin and death.

Colossians 3:9 Don't lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his doings,

2 Thessalonians 2:11 Because of this, God sends them a working of error, that they should believe a lie;

1 John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and don't tell the truth.

1 John 2:21 I have not written to you because you don't know the truth, but because you know it, and because no lie is of the truth.

1 John 2:27 As for you, the anointing which you received from him remains in you, and you don't need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, you will remain in him.

Romans 7:18 For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, dwells no good thing. For desire is present with me, but I don't find it doing that which is good.

The Power of Sin

****1John.1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1:10 If we say that we haven't sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. [/b]

What is the conclusion of the matter of sin? This really is the issue John will address in his letter of first John, that is, how can anyone of us be sinless when we can't stop sinning? False religion which was being sown into the field of God's planting back then, claims, and still practices today that human can by obeying the commandments stop sinning.

1 John 3:9 Whoever is born of God doesn't commit sin, because his seed remains in him; and he can't sin, because he is born of God.

1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

In other words, salvation depends upon human faithfulness in applying God's written word in their lives which scrubs away sin inherited by Adam and Eve. God on the other hand, tells mankind we lie if say we have no sin, or have stopped sinning by our own human will sold into captivity by sin. All are dying from sin, not one person has taken sin out of themselves since sin enter into our world.

Romans 9:11 For being not yet born, neither having done anything good or bad, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him who calls,

Romans 9:32 Why? Because they didn't seek it by faith, but as it were by works of the law. They stumbled over the stumbling stone;

1 Peter 3:21 This is a symbol of baptism, which now saves you--not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This seed of false religion would soon grow into a world wide empire of false religion of captivity for the humans enslaving them to the power of sin once again. The great mystery of Babylon was to convince people of God's love in for freely, and once for all times, forgiving their sins while at the same time teaching them their religious institution is in charge of doling out the blood of Christ - measuring it out an inch at a time depending upon what good work they were doing for their religion.

Hebrews 4:10 For he who has entered into his rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from his.

Titus 3:5 not by works of righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy, he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit.

2 Timothy 1:9 who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before times eternal.

Ephesians 2:9 not of works, that no one would boast.

Subsequently, massive and complicated systems of forgiveness were formed and empires of wealth control over human and their governments spouted up. Those without faith, that is, of the fleshly mind who could not understand unmerited kindness of God whom themselves judge others by works of law quickly seized upon this false teaching, it was food for the weeds, the same food found in every facet of mankind creation since sin enter into the world, which sinful teaching permeates every institution of mankind from religion, government into commerce.

Galatians 3:2 I just want to learn this from you. Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith?

Galatians 3:5 He therefore who supplies the Spirit to you, and works miracles among you, does he do it by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith?

Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work.

However, the apostle John does not in his writing place salvation into mankind's hands, that is, in what they teach or build on earth. God himself was moved to save human because of his own love, he provided a way for each of us so we can simply be saved, without a complicated mystery of works of law, how? God provided us a precious righteous life to replace our own life sold into sin. God freely without strings, that is, from love which does not owe us a single thing but love releasing all payments of sin. Yes, our own love back to our Father is the free, and pure worship that makes us loved and precious to our Father.

Rom.13:8 Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God.

1 John 4:8 He who doesn't love doesn't know God, for God is love.

1 John 4:9 By this God's love was revealed in us, that God has sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.

No one can take that love from us or God love, nor can they change God's love for those loving the Father and his free gift of Christ life; there is no power in heaven or earth that can take us away from God's love. Do we openly freely offer that same gift to others? Ponder the unmerited gift of Christ life? we cannot stop sinning by any means in our life, but God purchases us from our deserved judgment of our sins, freely forgiving us once for all time(s). Now stop and reason can there be anything in heaven or upon earth more powerful than God's unmerited gift which power found in Christ life stripping all power from Satan the great accuser of Christ brothers?

Ephesians 2:2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the children of disobedience;

Ephesians 3:7 of which I was made a servant, according to the gift of that grace of God which was given me according to the working of his power.

Ephesians 3:16 that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that you may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man;

Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.

Now imagine again, what scheme must wicked spirits son's of God come up with to enslave the human race back into sin?

1Cor.3:1 Brothers, I couldn't speak to you as to spiritual, but as to fleshly, as to babies in Christ. 3:2 I fed you with milk, not with meat; for you weren't yet ready. Indeed, not even now are you ready, 3:3 for you are still fleshly. For insofar as there is jealousy, strife, and factions among you, aren't you fleshly, and don't you walk in the ways of men? 3:4 For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," aren't you fleshly? 3:5 Who then is Apollos, and who is Paul, but servants through whom you believed; and each as the Lord gave to him? 3:6 I planted. Apollos watered. But God gave the increase. 3:7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. 3:8 Now he who plants and he who waters are the same, but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor. 3:9 For we are God's fellow workers. You are God's farming, God's building. 3:10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another builds on it. But let each man be careful how he builds on it.

Philippians 2:13 For it is God who works in you both to will and to work, for his good pleasure.

Colossians 1:29 for which I also labor, striving according to his working, which works in me mightily.
