The book of 1 John

Chapter 2

****1John 2:1 My little children, I write these things to you so that you may not sin. If anyone sins, we have a Counselor{Greek Parakleton: Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, and Comfortor.} with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous.

John letter lays out the truth of our real condition before our Father YHWH. If we say we have no sin, we are a liar! On the other hand, if we sin we are not in Christ! But here in this verse above John introduces us yet to another truth, God's Holy Spirit, as part of our atoning sacrifice for sin not leading to death.

Titus 3:4 But when the kindness of God our Savior and his love toward mankind appeared, 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,
3:6 whom he poured out on us richly, through Jesus Christ our Savior;

Such profound truth cannot be known by our fallen flesh, what is said by John under Holy Spirit confuses and confounds our legal mind, that is, our fleshly mind which must think in works of law, and not the grace of God. Sin is missing the mark, but the mark of what? If one cannot qualify for a race he missed the mark of meeting the rules to run. Subsequently, how does one obey the rules if they are disqualified from the gate of the race? What is a rule, it is a commandment that must be obeyed to run the race. To run the race unqualified mean's breaking all the rules, and/or commandments of the race before starting. The effort in running is invain, a useless pursuit that only causes us wrath from the committee that set up the rules to run race.

1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God didn't appoint us to wrath, but to the obtaining of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

John 3:36 One who believes in the Son has eternal life, but one who disobeys{The same word can be translated "disobeys" or "disbelieves" in this context.} the Son won't see life, but the wrath of God remains on him."

Romans 4:15 For the law works wrath, for where there is no law, neither is there disobedience.

Christ is spirit, no longer flesh, we know Christ no more by his flesh. In fact, flesh disqualifies us from running the race because these brothers and sisters were made part of Christ as his body members, a spirit body, for Christ is spirit, and has a spirit body so they cannot know each other by their flesh either any longer by flesh. Christ made it clear while in his flesh that the flesh is of no value at all, it is the Spirit that he would send them that would comfort, and teach them, and cleanses them from all unrighteousness; sin, for those created by God's Spirit free of sin or the thoughts of sinning God's son's birth by His righteous Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 5:16 Therefore we know no one after the flesh from now on. Even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more.

1 Corinthians 12:13 For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and were all given to drink into one Spirit.

John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh. That which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

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 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.

1 Corinthians 15:50 Now I say this, brothers,{The word for "brothers" here and where context allows may also be correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings."} that flesh and blood can't inherit the Kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption.

Thus, John speaks boldly about our relationship with the Father and the Son Christ Jesus in Spirit, and truth. We are disqualified from the race of life because we are all sinners, we cannot meet the commandments of God, if we are a sinner. Hence, for us to run, we must have someone run the race for us without sin, then if we are made part of his body, spirit, and we are made alive in Christ by God's Spirit we can meet the commandments of God, but why?

1 Corinthians 9:24 Don't you know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run like that, that you may win.

Rom.8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don't walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.{NU omits "who don't walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit"} 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death. 8:3 For what the law couldn't do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God did, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh;

Because Christ ran and won the race for us; he alone was qualified, he completed the race and was rewarded with the gift of eternal life from the Father. If we are part of him, we have his eternal life indwelling us as the prize Christ won for us. Now having state that, we have set the enter stage for unraveling the truth of John's letter. However, there is a caveat! If we get off that course one step we will be steep into the mire of our fleshly mind that will drags us down into self-qualification, into works of law something not one person could do, or has ever done on earth since Adam sinned. Christ was sent us from above because there was not found a righteous man that could redeem us, meaning without sin on earth. All sinned and fall short of God's glory of eternal life. Christ Jesus is the eternal, the life, and the light, God has freely given us, from his love.

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

John 3:15 that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Now if we remain in God's love, not in commandment(s) we are in Christ (the gift of Christ life completes the commandments for us), that is right, when John speak of God's love he is saying “Christ”, Christ is God's love towards the human race, if we say we are in Christ, we are saying we are in God's love, if we are cleansed from all unrighteousness, that is, sin, we are in God's love, in Christ freeing us from the judgment of sin. In other words, in context, the commandments of the law were completed for us in Christ righteous life, our being in Christ, that is, in Spirit, ( in God's love) the commandants are completed for us, the same commandments that creating wrath from our sins because we could not complete (the law) because we are sinners, Christ completed for us (the race for eternal life won in Christ as God's free gift of his love too us), then, and only then we have no sin.

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.

Titus 2:14 who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify for himself a people for his own possession, zealous for good works.

Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.

Revelation 2:4 But I have this against you, that you left your first love.

2 John 1:5 Now I beg you, dear lady, not as though I wrote to you a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

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.

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.

We can never stop sinning because we have a body of flesh that cannot and will not stop sinning until its death. That is why Paul was moved by the same Holy Spirit to blurt out that nothing, not one thing good, that is, without sin, righteous, dwelt in his flesh! (God separated the flesh from the spirit for us by his Son's blood) We must just as an Israelite had to do two thousand's of years ago, have innocent blood shed for our sins, for our flesh (sins of our flesh) to be remove, that is, our sins so we are not in violation of God's law/commandments. If God does not provide a provision (passing over) for our sins by blotting them out, paying the price for them we could not even stand righteous in his present. An Israelite did not keep the commandments it was impossible for a sinner to keep the law, that is, the commandments, it was God's mercy that allow God to pass-over their sins.

Romans 3:19 Now we know that whatever things the law says, it speaks to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be closed, and all the world may be brought under the judgment of God.

Romans 2:13 For it isn't the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law will be justified

Romans 3:10 As it is written, "There is no one righteous; no, not one.

John 1:36 and he looked at Jesus as he walked, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God!"

Acts 8:32 Now the passage of the Scripture which he was reading was this, "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter. As a lamb before his shearer is silent, so he doesn't open his mouth.

1 Peter 1:19 but with precious blood, as of a faultless and pure lamb, the blood of Christ;

If we forget this truth of our bibles for self-goodness as though we can keep the commandments putting away the filth of our flesh by works of law, and/or works of commandments we invalidate the entire truth God has placed before us to receive his undeserved kindness by his greatest expression of love for mankind his Son Christ Jesus. There is but one commandment that fulfilled the law, there is but one Christ, one Spirit that completes the law for us, which is unequivocally God's greatest act of love in Christ Jesus. Do we understand that simple profound truth? Christ is God's love, in him, we are in God's love this is the new commandment to be in Christ, in Christ is God's love, if we love our brothers we are in God's love, because they are part of us, in the one body of Christ that we are a part of.

Eph.5:29 For no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord also does the assembly; 5:30 because we are members of his body, of his flesh and bones. 5:31 "For this cause a man will leave his father and mother, and will be joined to his wife. The two will become one flesh."{Genesis 2:24} 5:32 This mystery is great, but I speak concerning Christ and of the assembly. 5:33 Nevertheless each of you must also love his own wife even as himself; and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,"{Deuteronomy 21:23}

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

1 Peter 1:18 knowing that you were redeemed, not with corruptible things, with silver or gold, from the useless way of life handed down from your fathers.

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 3:14 We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. He who doesn't love his brother remains in death.

1 Peter 4:8 And above all things be earnest in your love among yourselves, for love covers a multitude of sins.

The law of love, which also means the law of Christ, because Christ is God's love, the commandments our completed for us if we are in Christ, that is, by God's love, in God's love. Not one person on earth can put themselves into Christ by demands, and/or their own works, not one person can walk in love, in Christ by self-effort. Not one person can keep God's commandments by their own good effort to obey them. What starts as a free gift, life, finishes with a gift of God's love, by the gift of Christ life too us. If it is a free gift, so why boast as though we did not revived it?

Philippians 2:16 holding up the word of life; that I may have something to boast in the day of Christ, that I didn't run in vain nor labor in vain.

Mark 10:19 You know the commandments: 'Do not murder,' 'Do not commit adultery,' 'Do not steal,' 'Do not give false testimony,' 'Do not defraud,' 'Honor your father and mother.'"{Exodus 20:12-16; Deuteronomy 5:16-20}

James 2:7 Don't they blaspheme the honorable name by which you are called? 2:8 However, if you fulfill the royal law, according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself,"{Leviticus 19:18} you do well. 2:9 But if you show partiality, you commit sin, being convicted by the law as transgressors. 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law, and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all. 2:11 For he who said, "Do not commit adultery,"{Exodus 20:14; Deuteronomy 5:18} also said, "Do not commit murder."{Exodus 10:13; Deuteronomy 5:17} Now if you do not commit adultery, but murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 2:12 So speak, and so do, as men who are to be judged by a law of freedom.

Galatians 6:14 But far be it from me to boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

2 Corinthians 12:5 On behalf of such a one I will boast, but on my own behalf I will not boast, except in my weaknesses.

1 Corinthians 4:7 For who makes you different? And what do you have that you didn't receive? But if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?

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.

Hebrews 7:16 who has been made, not after the law of a fleshly commandment, but after the power of an endless life:

Hebrews 9:19 For when every commandment had been spoken by Moses to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of the calves and the goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people.

1 John 3:23 This is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, even as he commanded.

1 John 4:21 This commandment we have from him, that he who loves God should also love his brother.

Now we are cleanse from all unrighteousness, that is, sin and the thought of sin because we have a new mind, the mind of our new body, Christ Jesus, who has conquered death from sin. It is the Holy Spirit in Christ the one temple of God we have come into by Christ righteousness, that is, by are being part of his body that cleanse us from ever dead work of sin. However, there is a sin not leading to our everlasting spiritual death, which is, from our old fleshly mind we are left in on earth which Christ conquerors for us by his mind by the power of his Kingdom in Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, in the power of the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 4:20 For the Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.

2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves.

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.

Ephesians 1:19 and what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to that working of the strength of his might.

1 John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death.

1 John 5:18 We know that whoever is born of God doesn't sin, but he who was born of God keeps himself, and the evil one doesn't touch him.

Turning Away God's Wrath

****1John.2:2 And he is the atoning sacrifice{"atoning sacrifice" is from the Greek "hilasmos," an appeasing, propitiating, or the means of appeasement or propitiation--the sacrifice that turns away God's wrath because of our sin.} for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the whole world. 2:3 This is how we know that we know him: if we keep his commandments.

Why God's wrath? Moreover, what do we think of when we think of God's wrath, is it the end of our world, the final judgment or something else? The apostle John is speaking here specifically of the law of God and its commandments that if we don't keep law with it commandments we are under God's wrath!

Romans 4:15 For the law works wrath, for where there is no law, neither is there disobedience.

Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we will be saved from God's wrath through him.

Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who doesn't continue in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them."{Deuteronomy 27:26}

That mean's under God's Judgment, was that the wrath, is that the wrath you were thinking of? But here is the key of John's letter, and if we miss it we find ourselves in a religion of human worship, what is that? Christ life, his blood turn away God's wrath, not us, Christ removed God's wrath by what? Fulfilling the contract of the Old Covenant for us by his blood. He paid it off, he paid the supreme price that no human on earth in their own righteousness could complete, he finish, stop its judgment of our sins by removing the instrument of our judgment the law and its commandments!

Ephesians 2:15 having abolished in the flesh the hostility, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man of the two, making peace.

Galatians 2:18 For if I build up again those things which I destroyed, I prove myself a law-breaker.

1 Corinthians 15:56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.

Romans 10:4 For Christ is the fulfillment{or, completion, or end} of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

The first step is faith, not in ourselves, and our good motives in wanting to serve God, no! We must put faith in God's love, his Son's life given us freely so we can what? Stop being judged by God's laws and commandments. The bible is not about our great righteousness and goodness, it is pragmatically about God's goodness and righteous which causes us wrath, and the solution found in Jesus Christ in removing God's wrath for our not being able to obey his commandments.

Romans 8:3 For what the law couldn't do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God did, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh.

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 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death.

Romans 7:5 For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were through the law, worked in our members to bring forth fruit to death.

Romans 7:4 Therefore, my brothers, you also were made dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you would be joined to another, to him who was raised from the dead, that we might bring forth fruit to God.

These brothers were attacking the truth of Christ they were putting all the emphasis on keeping God's commandments, just as the Jew's whom foolishly worship the law instead of Jehovah God who had to cleared them of unrighteousness by the blood of innocent animal, which commended any self-righteousness. The law could not be kept by a sinner, it was impossible, couldn't be done! The commandments are the law they could not be kept, not one person keep God's commandments in being righteous, that is, sinless, for if we have sinned we are not righteous like God and Christ without sin, like Adam was without sin before sinning.

Romans 5:20 The law came in besides, that the trespass might abound; but where sin abounded, grace abounded more exceedingly;

Romans 4:14 For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void, and the promise is made of no effect.

Romans 3:27 Where then is the boasting? It is excluded. By what manner of law? Of works? No, but by a law of faith.

Can you imagine the evil Satan uses in twisting the commandments into building false religion putting all his power onto the emphasis of the law and commandments that some how we are to keep them in our own effort, by works we perform on earth for a religion, for human to see, for governments, for our families to hold us up as being a good Christian's? Yes! Worship the commandments, worship works of law, worship self-rightness, worship the creation rather than the creator of life, given us freely by his own love.

2 Corinthians 11:14 And no wonder, for even Satan masquerades as an angel of light.

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

Hebrews 10:8 Previously saying, "Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you didn't desire, neither had pleasure in them" (those which are offered according to the law),

Hebrews 10:18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

Now stop, rethink, how do we keep the commandments, if we as sinner cannot keep them? How can we boast in a gift? If God extends an undeserved gift to us, why now boast in a hard line that we demand others to obtain to a righteousness we could not through a commandments bent religion? If we judge by a double standard does that not prove we are a lawbreakers? You see the point was faith, do we really get what real faith is? It not in our obeying the commandments, because we can't as sinners. It is factually believing Christ finished them for us (commandments), it is believing the Son of God righteousness is as ours, as a gift from above too us so we can have a relationship with the Father, not as an enemy under the sins of our flesh, but as loved without God's wrath upon us because his law and commandments judge us as worthy of nothing but death!
Romans 2:20 a corrector of the foolish, a teacher of babies, having in the law the form of knowledge and of the truth.

Romans 2:23 You who glory in the law, through your disobedience of the law do you dishonor God?

Romans 3:19 Now we know that whatever things the law says, it speaks to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be closed, and all the world may be brought under the judgment of God.

Romans 3:20 Because by the works of the law, no flesh will be justified in his sight. For through the law comes the knowledge of sin.

Romans 11:20 True; by their unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by your faith. Don't be conceited, but fear;

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;

Romans 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:

James 2:5 Listen, my beloved brothers. Didn't God choose those who are poor in this world to be rich in faith, and heirs of the Kingdom which he promised to those who love him?
2:6 But you have dishonored the poor man. Don't the rich oppress you, and personally drag you before the courts?
2:7 Don't they blaspheme the honorable name by which you are called?
2:8 However, if you fulfill the royal law, according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself,"{Leviticus 19:18} you do well.
2:9 But if you show partiality, you commit sin, being convicted by the law as transgressors. 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law, and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all.
2:11 For he who said, "Do not commit adultery,"{Exodus 20:14; Deuteronomy 5:18} also said, "Do not commit murder."{Exodus 10:13; Deuteronomy 5:17} Now if you do not commit adultery, but murder, you have become a transgressor of the law.
2:12 So speak, and so do, as men who are to be judged by a law of freedom.

With that thought we have love for one another, we remain in God's love, and we judge if we must by what? The perfect law of love as what God has done for us in Christ. That is the faith Israel failed to have that is the faith every son of God must stay in that we are made perfect in God's undeserved kindness in giving us a righteous life indwelling us that conquerors this world by his life, the only life among mankind that did keep all the commandments perfectly. Can we humble accept this gift?

James 4:1 Where do wars and fightings among you come from? Don't they come from your pleasures that war in your members?
4:2 You lust, and don't have. You kill, covet, and can't obtain. You fight and make war. You don't have, because you don't ask.
4:3 You ask, and don't receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it for your pleasures.
4:4 You adulterers and adulteresses, don't you know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
4:5 Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, "The Spirit who lives in us yearns jealously"?
4:6 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."{Proverbs 3:34}
4:7 Be subject therefore to God. But resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
4:8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Who and What is the Liar?

****1John.2:2 And he is the atoning sacrifice{"atoning sacrifice" is from the Greek "hilasmos," an appeasing, propitiating, or the means of appeasement or propitiation--the sacrifice that turns away God's wrath because of our sin.} for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the whole world. 2:3 This is how we know that we know him: if we keep his commandments. 2:4 One who says, "I know him," and doesn't keep his commandments, is a liar, and the truth isn't in him.

No one wants to be a liar, the word liar is a harsh word when stated to someone's face! Yet, if we say we have no sin, we are a liar! If we sin we are not keeping the commandants if you believe God's word the bible? All sin is lawlessness being lawless is not a compliment for a Christian's. Yet, if we say we have no sin, what are we?

Romans 3:4 May it never be! Yes, let God be found true, but every man a liar. As it is written, "That you might be justified in your words, and might prevail when you come into judgment."{Psalm 51:4}

1 John 1:10 If we say that we haven't sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
The Jews could not keep the law without remission of sin, to keep the commandments of God they must atone for sin. All sin and fall short of God's glory, so how could a Jew keep the commandments of God? Only by God's mercy found in the life of the victim, its blood to redeem the person, pay the price for their sins before God. However, let us recall that Christ is the end of the law, and the institutor of the law of love, by what? His blood, redeeming us from the curse of the law. In other words, all the law could do for a sinner was curse them, and not declare them righteous, meaning, blessing them with eternal life, without (sin) condemnation from God's law, and/or commandments. It seems we have weaved a fine web if we chose to believe we can keep commandments that Christ completed for us, abolishing the curse of the law removing our deserved judgment as a sinner?

1 John 2:22 Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the Antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son.

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;

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;

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.

Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who doesn't continue in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them."{Deuteronomy 27:26}

Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,"{Deuteronomy 21:23}

But the nagging word commandment(s) not commandment but more than one plagues us with doubt and fear of judgment, and it should if we are a works of law person. The Jews could not keep the commandments without blood, but they tried by self-merit, so why shouldn't we try to be perfect because that is the nature of our fallen flesh to be perfect by meeting rules and laws? However, the Jews deny Christ for self-righteousness through the law, but how can that be?

Romans 9:31 but Israel, following after a law of righteousness, didn't arrive at the law of righteousness.

Romans 10:3 For being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they didn't subject themselves to the righteousness of God.

Romans 10:4 For Christ is the fulfillment{or, completion, or end} of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

The law was righteous, not sinners! Let us not confuse ourselves the law did not make us righteous it condemned us as a sinner, shut our mouths from boasting in our flesh where we say we are perfect by what we perform on earth. We could not build a big enough empire to redeem ourselves from sin. God made us a away by life, precious innocent life, let us not be fooled Israel failed by works of law, they did not obtain to righteousness, but self-righteousness that hated true righteousness the Christ.

Romans 9:30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, who didn't follow after righteousness, attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith;

Now Christian's are going to keep the commandments by works of law? It time to sober up! The commandments will break our backs as sinners, they will become measuring line upon measuring line in our trying to be perfect claiming we are keeping the commandments, we are than a liar. The book of First John was not written for sinners, it was written for those declared righteous by the life blood of Christ acquitted of their sins by God's undeserved kindness. They had not made themselves righteous, but their righteousness, they had been made righteous by Christ righteousness, how?

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.

Those in Christ were put to death in their sins, that is, their flesh, and made alive in Christ in spirit. Their flesh was dead, it was not alive doing good works in keeping the commandments, it was dead, which means gone, buried, removed from any more laws on this earth or in heaven dead, of no value at all for any purpose to the living! Now we are in Christ as our life, yes, our life, not some of our life, but all of our life, not some from the flesh, and a little from the Spirit, but our life is the will of God, because in the Son of God is the will of God for all mankind.

Colossians 3:4 When Christ, our life, is revealed, then you will also be revealed with him in glory.

Ephesians 4:22 that you put away, as concerning your former way of life, the old man, that grows corrupt after the lusts of deceit;

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.

Now in that state of being redeem in Christ life, once for all times, we keep the commandments, not in the flesh or the fears of our flesh of God's judgments. But in Christ life, his merit keeps us in God's love because we belong to him as his life, that is, his body members. Nothing reeks of self-merit in Christ, nothing of our flesh stinks up the truth of why we stand before God in spirit. Moreover, lets us not forget the basic one-o-one of Christianity the law was for sinners not the righteous.

Romans 8:6 For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace;

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.

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.

Romans 8:12 So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

Romans 8:13 For if you live after the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

The law called all sinners in their fallen flesh, unrighteous, but all those in Christ life are righteous because they don't belong to themselves, but to Christ, Christ righteous meaning without sin, that is why simple ABC of Christianity tells us that Christ fulfilled the law completed it, because there are no sinners in Christ they have all been made alive from sin. Because their flesh exist no more it is dead freed of judgment of the law, and the commandments.

1Tim.1:9 as knowing this, that law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 1:10 for the sexually immoral, for homosexuals, for slave-traders, for liars, for perjurers, and for any other thing contrary to the sound doctrine;

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.

There is but one commandment in Christ which fulfills all the rest of the commandments, love. Compounding rules and law making people obey love is stupid and foolishness which is based upon the thinking of our fallen flesh, a flesh that is always unrighteous and dead to God! So who is the liar? It is our flesh according to our bibles all person in their flesh are liars.

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.

Jer.17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it? 17:10 I, Yahweh, search the mind, I try the heart, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.

Rom. 3:11 There is no one who understands. There is no one who seeks after God.
3:12 They have all turned aside. They have together become unprofitable. There is no one who does good, no, not, so much as one."{Psalms 14:1-3; 53:1-3; Ecclesiastes 7:20}
3:13 "Their throat is an open tomb. With their tongues they have used deceit."{Psalm 5:9} "The poison of vipers is under their lips;"{Psalm 140:3}
3:14 "Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness."{Psalm 10:7}
3:15 "Their feet are swift to shed blood.
3:16 Destruction and misery are in their ways.
3:17 The way of peace, they haven't known."{Isaiah 59:7-8}
3:18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes."{Psalm 36:1}
3:19 Now we know that whatever things the law says, it speaks to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be closed, and all the world may be brought under the judgment of God.
3:20 Because by the works of the law, no flesh will be justified in his sight. For through the law comes the knowledge of sin.

]Perfected in Him?

****1John2:5 But whoever keeps his word, God's love has most certainly been perfected in him. This is how we know that we are in him:

Can we be perfected outside of Christ, not a trick question? In other words, can we be perfected by reading our bibles? Many believe in false religion they can perfect themselves, which seems logical; whoever keeps his word God's love has been perfected in him!

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 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.

The next question is? Can we keep God's word without being in him, that is, in Christ? Here is the problem no matter how many time we read God's word if we have been taught works of law by our religion we will translate every thought from our bibles into works of law. Conversely, if we have been taught by the Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus, him being in us, we will translated everything in the Word, Christ Jesus, Christ is the Word of God.

John 5:38 You don't have his word living in you; because you don't believe him whom he sent.

Romans 8:29 For whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.{The word for "brothers" here and where context allows may also be correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings."}

1 Corinthians 4:20 For the Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.

1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause we also thank God without ceasing, that, when you received from us the word of the message of God, you accepted it not as the word of men, but, as it is in truth, the word of God, which also works in you who believe.

Do we honestly understand this vast difference? The fleshly mind reads above John's words and first thinks: “If I obey the commandments, that is, the word of God my bible, I will perfect myself because I am proving I love God, by obedience to God's word.”

Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the doctrine of the first principles of Christ, let us press on to perfection--not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works, of faith toward God.

Colossians 3:14 Above all these things, walk in love, which is the bond of perfection.

2 Corinthians 12:9 He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me.

Philippians 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, think this way. If in anything you think otherwise, God will also reveal that to you.

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.

James 1:25 But he who looks into the perfect law of freedom, and continues, not being a hearer who forgets, but a doer of the work, this man will be blessed in what he does.

But the apostle John is not talking to the world, or just anyone, he is speaking point specific to God's children anointed by his Holy Spirit born new in Christ, that is, into his body as member therein, and Christ indwelling us with his own righteous life! In fact, he is not talking about our flesh at all. Those anointed by Holy Spirit knows no person any longer by the flesh, not even Christ Jesus flesh while upon earth. They are a new creation in spirit, made alive in the Spirit of God by Christ own life which is spirit.

John 1:33 I didn't recognize him, but he who sent me to baptize in water, he said to me, 'On whomever you will see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.'

John 3:5 Jesus answered, "Most certainly I tell you, unless one is born of water and spirit, he can't enter into the Kingdom of God!

John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh. That which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Subsequently, God's children cannot be perfected outside of Christ because they have been purchased from earth by God. They don't belong to the world, or to mankind, or their systems of things from religion, government and/or business. The perfecting come from the Word of God, Christ Jesus as part of him, his body members.

John 4:23 But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to be his worshippers.

John 4:24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."

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 14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world can't receive; for it doesn't see him, neither knows him. You know him, for he lives with you, and will be in you.

God's love being perfected in us is that we are “in Christ Jesus” having no sin, subsequently, we have no judgment! Unfortunately, the fleshly mind thinks there is other ways to keep God's word, but there is not! A person with sin cannot keep God's word, plain and simple. Christ died for us, he kept God's word perfectly for us because he did not sin. God's love gives each of us the free gift of his love Christ Jesus and his life, meaning his righteousness indwells us so we are righteous as he is righteous. Now because Christ indwells us, we can keep God's word, not in our own merit but in Christ merit given us undeserved by blotting out our sin forever!

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

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.

If we don't stay in God undeserved kindness, we walk in works of law, we translated every thing from God's word the bible into more works of law. In other words, we make it about our righteousness, and/or human righteousness instead of Christ righteousness that saves us completely. Moreover, this is why there is a clear demarcation between light and darkness, weeds and wheat even though the weeds eat from the same field as do the wheat they are not born of God by Holy Spirit and what they produce is more weed teaching from the flesh. Furthermore, this is why we cannot change another person because we legislated them into a religion that changes and deals only with perfecting the flesh. Yes, those of the flesh read the above words of John and immediately go into working on making their flesh obey, thinking if they can do so, they are perfecting God's love.

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.

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.

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.

But God is not dealing with his children flesh! The flesh cannot be obedient to God, or his commandments, it cannot wash itself clean by works of law, it cannot give itself eternal life by its own merit. Those belonging to Christ are saved in Christ, they are saved because they have faith in the Spirit which is the truth, the witness of the Spirit given to each child of God as a constant witness that they are in the life of Christ, and he in them. It is the mind of Christ that perfects us in what? Love, so what is love without trust? Hate, fear of judgment!

Romans 13:14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, for its lusts.

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.

Jude 1:20 But you, beloved, keep building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy 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.

Colossians 2:2 that their hearts may be comforted, they being knit together in love, and gaining all riches of the full assurance of understanding, that they may know the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ.

1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are revealed, and the children of the devil. Whoever doesn't do righteousness is not of God, neither is he who doesn't love his brother.

1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. He who doesn't love his brother remains in death.

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 4:18 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.

We are perfected in love because there is no judgment in God's love for his Son Christ Jesus which we have been purchased from earth into his eternal life, that is, from our fallen flesh into his eternal life, loved and cherished by God himself. We have been translated into the kingdom of his Son love, from our new birth out of our flesh into Christ seated above in his kingdom which conquered this world by his love for his Father YHWH. We are being perfected in God's love by the mind of our body Christ Jesus so we thinking in a new law of love.

Colossians 1:13 who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the Kingdom of the Son of his love;

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.

2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brothers, rejoice. Be perfected, be comforted, be of the same mind, live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you.

1 Corinthians 2:16 "For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct him?"{Isaiah 40:13} But we have Christ's mind.
In this, we need no one on this earth to teach us God's love because this world does not know the love of the Father for his children. Hence, it cannot know God's word, it cannot be in God's word, nor understand the truth of the Spirit!

1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world: your faith.

1 John 4:17 In this love has been made perfect among us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because as he is, even so are we in this world.

1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world.

1 John 3:1 Behold, how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! For this cause the world doesn't know us, because it didn't know him.

Walk Just Like He Walked

**** 1John.2:6 he who says he remains in him ought himself also to walk just like he walked.

How did Christ walk while on earth? Sadly, with 50 some thousand's Christian's religion upon earth today, and billions of followers each person has their own theory in how Christ walked on earth!

1 Corinthians 14:33 for God is not a God of confusion, but of peace. As in all the assemblies of the saints,

However, if we are reading the words of the apostle John in his letter here we shouldn't be confused about how Christ walked while on earth? Christ did not walk in speculation, or theory, he walked in Spirit and truth. In other words, he was lead by the will of the Father, he listen to the Spirit of truth God placed in Christ, Christ did not trust flesh, nor did he seek flesh in pleasing men, or religion, nor did he fear the judgment of men. Christ did not think he was equal to God, so where he like Adam went along with the Devils idea that God was withholding something good from Christ. In other words, if God was love he should give you everything so you never have an uncomfortable day on earth, God should spoil his children if not God is wicked keeping things for himself selfishly.

John 8:40 But now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth, which I heard from God. Abraham didn't do this.

John 19:35 He who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, that you may believe.

James 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 could list a thousand's more things how Christ walked I suppose if all were known of the things Christ did, it would fill the whole world with books about his actions upon earth, but we still have missed the main point of John's letter the key to staying in the light, in walking like Christ although we be different as a person, and what is that? Those in Christ are living letters a witness to God's glory, like Christ was a witness, the greatest witness to God's glory mankind has ever seen on earth, but how?

2 Corinthians 3:2 You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men;

The key to all truth is love, walking in love is a living letter to God's glory. In other words, its being written as we live and breathe, each moment for God, is the God of the living, not the dead, what is dead? Words written on pages of whatever material. Yes, dead, about past actions of some other person that is faithful, but not living in love by daily actions.

2 Corinthians 3:3 being revealed that you are a letter of Christ, served by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone, but in tablets that are hearts of flesh.

Matthew 22:32 'I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?'{Exodus 3:6} God is not the God of the dead, but of the living."

Each thought and action Christ took was for love of God, whole, mind, soul, and body, perfectly! Yes, in context to John's letter Christ because of his personal love for his Father Jehovah fulfilled the righteous law of God. Love fulfilled the law, it completed it, freeing us of our sins, we are loved so much God buried our sinful flesh that accuses us day and night of being unworthy in living up to the law, paying us the wages of sin, death. Moreover, and our certainly not having the power to be perfect in love.

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

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

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.

Thus, if we want to walk as Christ, we must walk in love, how can we walk in love as a sinner? This is the point of John's letter, false brothers were stating they could give themselves the perfect gift of life by earning it through knowledge, and such esoteric knowledge made sinners worthy of eternal life. Yes, trading the glory of God, the gift freely given (Christ), for knowledge to glorifying men in their flesh which is dead in Christ by God's gift where God has made us new in Christ righteous life so we walk in love by Christ will, and his mind which fully loved the Father so that we are translated into the Son's kingdom love by a indescribable gift of God's unmerited kindness.

1 John 4:11 Beloved, if God loved us in this way, we also ought to love one another.

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.

Let us stay in God's love, by staying in the power of God's love the gift of undeserved kindness.

Colossians 1:13 who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the Kingdom of the Son of his love;

2 Peter 3:18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.

1 Peter 5:10 But may the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

No New Commandment

****1John.2:7 Brothers, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning.

Compounding commandment(s), old, new, from the beginning, what is happening here? How many ways can one define what love should do? Well, truthfully if one is in a religion where building a relationship with God is based upon following the rules, that is, the principles of what love should do? Perhaps, a sky scraper full of books explaining the littlest thing we should do when dealing with our neighbor. Yes, compounding commandments upon commandments until they become measuring line upon measuring line, here a little, and there a little, until a person neck in broken and they fall backwards into hating their brothers and sisters.

Isa.28:9 Whom will he teach knowledge? To whom will he explain the message? Those who are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts? 28:10 For it is precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little. 28:11 But he will speak to this nation with stammering lips and in another language; 28:12 to whom he said, "This is the resting place. Give rest to weary;" and "This is the refreshing;" yet they would not hear. 28:13 Therefore the word of Yahweh will be to them precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little; that they may go, fall backward, be broken, be snared, and be taken.

No Christian's born of God as a new creation needs a library of commandments, nothing changed since Christ spoke a new commandment to us on earth, and what is that? That the whole world would know the truth of God if we love one another, and if we loved one another as he loved us we love God, the Father! How does one command someone to love us? Commanding someone to love is the Antipas of love, the flesh commandments the flesh forcing it to obey, but how does one command the Spirit to obey? If that Spirit is love?

Eph. 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, and Christ also is the head of the assembly, being himself the savior of the body. 5:24 But as the assembly is subject to Christ, so let the wives also be to their own husbands in everything. 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly, and gave himself up for it; 5:26 that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word, 5:27 that he might present the assembly to himself gloriously, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 5:28 Even so husbands also ought to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself. 5:29 For no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord also does the assembly; 5:30 because we are members of his body, of his flesh and bones.

Yes, God is love, and if we don't love, we don't know God, can we command God to love as though he is lacking in love, when he is love? Christ was not forced to love YHWH, he did not come to this earth begrudgingly on another assignment that would advance his career. No! Christ came because he loved the Father, and because he loved the Father he did not sin, and because he did not sin in love, he fulfilled the law proving Satan a liar.

John 15:9 Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love.

Do you know the difference? When someone we deeply love ask us to do something we want to, to bring more joy to their heart, we are not proving ourselves as does the flesh to gain something. No! We have it all, the person best, their love, its not about more, or making a name when in love, but about love the other person joy!

John 17:26 I made known to them your name, and will make it known; that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I in them."

Romans 5:5 and hope doesn't disappoint us, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Do we understand why Christ has a body of those that love him, and why he calls them his body? Jesus has always been in God's body, in God, and God in him, they are one and the same in this regard, nothing lacking for his only begotten son, nothing lacks in Christ just like a member of our own physical body does not lack in love. What command does the brain or our body give to the rest of the body that they must decide if it is good or bad? What evil does the foot impute to the brain when told to walk, does not the whole body benefit by the actions of the foot and vise a verse?

Romans 8:28 We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose.

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, "Things which an eye didn't see, and an ear didn't hear, which didn't enter into the heart of man, these God has prepared for those who love him."{Isaiah 64:4}

Why are these body members who belong to Christ imputing evil to their head, and to each other that was the issue the apostle John is addressing here! Simply put, they were walking in the flesh, not in love, that is, the Spirit! One cannot know the Spirit in the flesh, one cannot be at peace with the Spirit in the flesh, one cannot be using a law created for the unrighteous imputing those evils into the body of Christ made righteous by his love for his Father and come up with love?

1Tim.1:9 as knowing this, that law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 1:10 for the sexually immoral, for homosexuals, for slave-traders, for liars, for perjurers, and for any other thing contrary to the sound doctrine;

John 3:17 For God didn't send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through him.

John 8:15 You judge according to the flesh. I judge no one.

Love of body makes its members one in the same, not division in who's more righteous, and who is less, who deserved more and who deserved less so one must be commanded through harsh laws to make the hand move on the body for the good of the body. Do we understand how love in the body of Christ covers our sins? In other words, who are we to judge a body member? Does the hand judge the foot as evil? Now come on, does the brain judge the foot as evil when the whole body is good and righteous by the righteousness of the body itself?

1Cor.4:1 So let a man think of us as Christ's servants, and stewards of God's mysteries. 4:2 Here, moreover, it is required of stewards, that they be found faithful. 4:3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you, or by man's judgment. Yes, I don't judge my own self. 4:4 For I know nothing against myself. Yet I am not justified by this, but he who judges me is the Lord. 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each man will get his praise from God.

1 Peter 4:8 And above all things be earnest in your love among yourselves, for love covers a multitude of sins.

The question becomes what rules, laws, and commandments are we applying our judgment to? Christ body, or our fallen flesh, and that of others? If we are to love, as God loves us, if we are to do as Christ did for us should we not love one another? Do we clearly understand that nothing good dwells in our fallen flesh? Do we understand, the judgment of our flesh was removed because God is love? Do we understand we are not gaining God's love by merit that it is given freely too us in abundance as it was given Christ.

1 John 3:1 Behold, how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! For this cause the world doesn't know us, because it didn't know him.

1 John 3:11 For this is the message which you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another;

1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. He who doesn't love his brother remains in death.

Can we believe that two thousand years removed from the flesh of Christ upon earth? Yes, if we are in the Spirit not one thing has changed or is lacking in God's love for Christ who is us, and us in him as his body members so let us walk in love.

1 Peter 1:22 Seeing you have purified your souls in your obedience to the truth through the Spirit in sincere brotherly affection, love one another from the heart fervently:

James 2:5 Listen, my beloved brothers. Didn't God choose those who are poor in this world to be rich in faith, and heirs of the Kingdom which he promised to those who love him?

Colossians 3:14 Above all these things, walk in love, which is the bond of perfection.

Hates His Brother is in Darkness

****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. 2:9 He who says he is in the light and hates his brother, is in the darkness even until now.

Let us not move from the new commandment into hundreds of subdivision called principles of the the new commandment to love one another.
John 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, just like I have loved you; that you also love one another.

The apostle John is again telling us, reiterating that he is not giving us another commandment but the new one. He is saying” I am writing you about the new commandment which is true in him, and in us, because we are in Christ. How is the darkness passing away, and the true light already shines?

2 John 1:5 Now I beg you, dear lady, not as though I wrote to you a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

The Jewish system of things was passing away, it was destroyed in 70 CE, and its form of worship at the temple in Jerusalem was ravaged by the Roman's, but the love of Christ remained in them as the true temple of God, it had been shining for them if they did not used the old law covenant going back into darkness.

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

John 1:5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness hasn't overcome{The word translated "overcome" (katelaben) can also be translated "comprehended." It refers to getting a grip on an enemy to defeat him.} it.

Romans 13:12 The night is far gone, and the day is near. Let's therefore throw off the works of darkness, and let's put on the armor of light.

2Cor. 3:7 But if the service of death, written engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the children of Israel could not look steadfastly on the face of Moses for the glory of his face; which was passing away: 3:8 won't service of the Spirit be with much more glory? 3:9 For if the service of condemnation has glory, the service of righteousness exceeds much more in glory.
3:10 For most certainly that which has been made glorious has not been made glorious in this respect, by reason of the glory that surpasses. 3:11 For if that which passes away was with glory, much more that which remains is in glory. 3:12 Having therefore such a hope, we use great boldness of speech, 3:13 and not as Moses, who put a veil on his face, that the children of Israel wouldn't look steadfastly on the end of that which was passing away.
3:14 But their minds were hardened, for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains, because in Christ it passes away. 3:15 But to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. 3:16 But whenever one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord, the Spirit.

This was the darkness John and the apostles of Christ was fighting at their time, a need to condemn brothers by the laws of the flesh, but they had forgotten the truth. God removed his own wrath, that is, hostility towards them by not judging them any longer by the old covenant law which was for the flesh, a service of death. When we judge someone for evil of their flesh we hate them because they
are acting evil, we hate our brother, and/or sister that is the darkness spoken to here by John.

James 4:11 Don't speak against one another, brothers. He who speaks against a brother and judges his brother, speaks against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law, but a judge.

Hebrews 10:30 For we know him who said, "Vengeance belongs to me," says the Lord, "I will repay."{Deuteronomy 32:35} Again, "The Lord will judge his people."{Deuteronomy 32:36; Psalm 135:14}


Romans 14:10 But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

In other words, when we move away from the Spirit we can go no where else, but the flesh, when we judge flesh from flesh we judge darkness to darkness, that is, a hate, that is why Cain killed Abel over faith! The laws for the unrighteous flesh are death laws they are not the law of life, which is the law of Christ found in his body.

Galatians 2:18 For if I build up again those things which I destroyed, I prove myself a law-breaker.

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 6:2 Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Which body were these brothers and sisters in that is the question? Christ body completed the law for us, it ended the hostility against our flesh by God's own wrath against the flesh that cannot be in subjection to his laws! Were they going to walk in darkness by the power of sin, the power of the law is sin, all sin is lawlessness, or were they going to live in life.

1 Corinthians 2:5 that your faith wouldn't stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

1 Corinthians 15:56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.

2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves.

Ephesians 1:19 and what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to that working of the strength of his might,

Hebrews 7:16 who has been made, not after the law of a fleshly commandment, but after the power of an endless life:

If they chose life, that is, the life of Christ then one would need to have laws of life that do not condemn us as sinners, but bless us as sinless in Christ righteous life. There are only two bodies for these brothers and sisters, the body of law given Moses, or the body of love given them by Christ merit. One is darkness that soon will pass away, and the other is light that already shines. Had God removed his wrath that is question? If we sin a little or a lot then God's wrath remain, we are under the old law, why? Here is the point some just can't seem to wrap their minds around?

Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

Romans 2:5 But according to your hardness and unrepentant heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath, revelation, and of the righteous judgment of God;

Romans 4:15 For the law works wrath, for where there is no law, neither is there disobedience.

Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we will be saved from God's wrath through him.

God gives us the solution to sin, how? By righteous blood, not the law, not our works, not anything mankind can set up or do on earth. The law Christ removed, hence, he also removed the sacrifices for sin under the law, animal blood! Those sacrifices kept Israel in the light of God by purchasing their sins against his righteous law. That light was extinguished by the righteous blood of Christ in a new covenant.

Hebrews 9:22 According to the law, nearly everything is cleansed with blood, and apart from shedding of blood there is no remission.

Hebrews 10:4 For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins.

Hebrews 10:19 Having therefore, brothers, boldness to enter into the holy place by the blood of Jesus.

Heb.10:29 How much worse punishment, do you think, will he be judged worthy of, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?

Now the only acceptable means for salvation came through Christ blood, God rejects anything less than Christ blood after he raised him and exalted him as his own reflection. Those anointed in Christ had the promise Holy Spirit, they knew their judgment was removed or they could not received the Holy Spirit, that was a sign a seal of being sinless in God's eyes, that is, his not accounting their flesh alive anymore, but alive in the life of Christ that was now indwelling their mortal bodies.

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.

2 Timothy 2:19 However God's firm foundation stands, having this seal, "The Lord knows those who are his,"{Numbers 16:5} and, "Let every one who names the name of the Lord{TR reads "Christ" instead of "the Lord"} depart from unrighteousness."
The law of Christ must rule their lives, it was Christ righteousness that made them alive to God, because Christ is declared righteous by God, meaning having no sin, nor can he sin being made incorruptible. Nothing on earth, or in heaven can give a person sinlessness but Christ. The darkness Christ deliver us from was the fallen flesh, and its power over us by laws of death, how could one love his brother of the same spirit body of Christ by judging him with laws that no longer apply to him? Why would he do that not unless he hated him, and wanted rid of him, dead to Christ?

Matt.24:48 But if that evil servant should say in his heart, 'My lord is delaying his coming,' 24:49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and eat and drink with the drunkards, 24:50 the lord of that servant will come in a day when he doesn't expect it, and in an hour when he doesn't know it, 24:51 and will cut him in pieces, and appoint his portion with the hypocrites. There is where the weeping and grinding of teeth will be.

This is question facing these brothers and sisters, would they allow their anger by judgment of the law to destroy their brothers and sisters in Christ? Righteous anger is murderous, it believes it is sinning against God, so it heats up, blindly killing the person they believe to be contemptuous towards God's righteous law, but does such anger workout God's new righteousness found in Christ Jesus who took our judgment for our sinful flesh away by his love for his Father?

Titus.3:1 Remind them to be in subjection to rulers and to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work,
3:2 to speak evil of no one, not to be contentious, to be gentle, showing all humility toward all men. 3:3 For we were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
3:4 But when the kindness of God our Savior and his love toward mankind appeared, 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,
3:6 whom he poured out on us richly, through Jesus Christ our Savior; 3:7 that, being justified by his grace, we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

That is the real question, can we hand such a person over by the power of the old law to Satan for the destruction of their flesh, so the spirit might be saved? Can we? Think about it? The power of the law is sin, but what is the power of indestructible life do? Is the flesh more important than the spirit to power of Christ life?

1 John 5:8 the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and the three agree as one.

Jude 1:19 These are they who cause divisions, and are sensual, not having the Spirit.

1Tim.1:9 as knowing this, that law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 1:10 for the sexually immoral, for homosexuals, for slave-traders, for liars, for perjurers, and for any other thing contrary to the sound doctrine;

How can we measure out death, and get life, does not death measure out death, and life measure out life? Do we return evil for good? What is the judgment of the flesh in Christ? We know, we are not fooled! The law was the shadow, the elementary teaching are the law, not the Christ. Who indeed permits that we move on into the Christ fully, and become a full grown in the power of Christ, the flesh, the law, or the Spirit?

Romans 7:10 The commandment, which was for life, this I found to be for death;

Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death.

2 Corinthians 1:10 who delivered us out of so great a death, and does deliver; on whom we have set our hope that he will also still deliver us;

2 Corinthians 2:16 to the one a stench from death to death; to the other a sweet aroma from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things?

Colossians 1:22 yet now he has reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and without blemish and blameless before him.

2 Timothy 1:10 but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the Good News.

Matt.7:1 "Don't judge, so that you won't be judged.
7:2 For with whatever judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with whatever measure you measure, it will be measured to you.

Is there anything good in our flesh, how many times do we need that judgment, do we need the law punishing us over and over again with no sacrifice for sin left? The law is completed for us if we believe, have faith in Christ power, do we have different faith for different body members or one faith for all the body of Christ?

Ephesians 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you also were called in one hope of your calling;

Ephesians 4:5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism,

Rom.10:2 For I testify about them that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 10:3 For being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they didn't subject themselves to the righteousness of God. 10:4 For Christ is the fulfillment{or, completion, or end} of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

James. 2:4 haven't you shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts? 2:5 Listen, my beloved brothers. Didn't God choose those who are poor in this world to be rich in faith, and heirs of the Kingdom which he promised to those who love him? 2:6 But you have dishonored the poor man. Don't the rich oppress you, and personally drag you before the courts?
2:7 Don't they blaspheme the honorable name by which you are called? 2:8 However, if you fulfill the royal law, according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself,"{Leviticus 19:18} you do well. 2:9 But if you show partiality, you commit sin, being convicted by the law as transgressors. 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law, and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all. 2:11 For he who said, "Do not commit adultery,"{Exodus 20:14; Deuteronomy 5:18} also said, "Do not commit murder."{Exodus 10:13; Deuteronomy 5:17} Now if you do not commit adultery, but murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 2:12 So speak, and so do, as men who are to be judged by a law of freedom.
2:13 For judgment is without mercy to him who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

Stay in The Light

****1John 2:10 He who loves his brother remains in the light, and there is no occasion for stumbling in him. 2:11 But he who hates his brother is in the darkness, and walks in the darkness, and doesn't know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

Who is the light? Did you note that the apostle John said we must remain “in the light”? What had all Israel stumbled over when thinking themselves the light of God? Next we need to ask how were these brothers and sister hating their brothers? What caused them to hate their brothers and sisters?

John 3:19 This is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil.


2Cor. 3:13 and not as Moses, who put a veil on his face, that the children of Israel wouldn't look steadfastly on the end of that which was passing away. 3:14 But their minds were hardened, for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains, because in Christ it passes away. 3:15 But to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart.

Christ specifically and to the point is the light, not our bibles, not some religious writing, or a religion, nor some man at the top of our religion. The question is that unravels the whole of all the questions ask above? How had these brothers and sister come to be in the light? (Christ Jesus)


Colossians 1:12 giving thanks to the Father, who made us fit to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light;

1 Thessalonians 5:5 You are all children of light, and children of the day. We don't belong to the night, nor to darkness.

Ephesians 5:8 For you were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.

In other words, how had Christ Jesus spirit life come to indwell each of these brothers and sisters, how had they become part of Christ elevated glorified life? If they had forgotten that then they were in the darkness, and profoundly shocking they were hating their own brothers! They had taken the very course of fleshly Israel that rejected Christ, for what? Well the scriptures are very clear why Israel rejected Christ, do we remember?

Rom.10:2 For I testify about them that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 10:3 For being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they didn't subject themselves to the righteousness of God.

Self-righteousness, which is the purest form of hatred for our brothers. Yes, self-righteousness is darkness, which cause us self-blindness, so we don't even know why we stumble? The love of self over the love of God, makes us hate our brothers. God birth no self-righteous children, he gave birth to fleshly Israel in humility They plainly had to sin their faults, first by the power of the law, and secondly, by the life of innocent victims that removed their selfish acts before God.

Isaiah 59:10 We grope for the wall like the blind; yes, we grope as those who have no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the twilight; among those who are lusty we are as dead men.

John 11:10 But if a man walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light isn't in him."

Going before the altar of God, and watching a frighten animal be dragged to the altar then having its throat cut and blood running everywhere to forgive our selfish acts before God should have humbled any honest hearted person cutting them to their heart. None could be self-righteous and see the witness of the blood on the altar of God thinking they had been made clean by works of law!

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.

If they thought that, they were certainly blinded to their own actions, the thoughts of their hearts, and hating their brothers when thinking they were more righteous by their keeping the law in their own good efforts. Jesus was lead like a sheep before the slaughter for our selfish acts, acts that most of us cannot stop doing. Yet, these brothers and sisters wanted vengeance, and the law of Christ didn't provide it for them. They had forgotten Christ, they stop comparing themselves to the Christ and started comparing their brothers to themselves under the law.

Matt.7:1 "Don't judge, so that you won't be judged.
7:2 For with whatever judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with whatever measure you measure, it will be measured to you. 7:3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but don't consider the beam that is in your own eye? 7:4 Or how will you tell your brother, 'Let me remove the speck from your eye;' and behold, the beam is in your own eye? 7:5 You hypocrite! First remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother's eye.

The good done them in the atoning blood of Christ they had forgotten, they had forgotten how they were in the light, they thought through all the trials on earth they had earned salvation, they had not only earned it, but it was their righteous acts that kept them in Christ, but they had it one-hundred and eighty degrees backwards.


Philippians 1:11 being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise 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;

They failed to understand primary doctrine of Christ that there is no condemnation for those “in God's anointed”, that is, anointed means Christ. There was not many anointing, but one for the whole body of Christ. Yes, they like Christ had been put to death, in the flesh and raised into Christ the spirit. They did not put away their flesh by any work of law, it was the blood of Christ that they were declared righteous, in Christ righteousness. They had been freely forgiven, without strong efforts against sins in their own flesh, they had found like all of God's anointed there is nothing in our flesh that puts us in Christ.

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.

Hebrews 5:13 For everyone who lives on milk is not experienced in the word of righteousness, for he is a baby.

1 Peter 2:24 who his own self bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed.

But still the power of self-righteousness in the flesh is a very strong force it does not die easily, and when incited by laws that give power to sin in our flesh hatred comes into our hearts for our brothers flesh, in them not stopping those sin in their flesh, as we think we have in our own righteousness.


James 1:20 for the anger of man doesn't produce the righteousness of God.

Moreover, some had failed to understand the judgment upon the house of God. That God in his divine wisdom left us in a vessel of flesh, which is the judgment of God's household, daily upon his spiritual household. None were getting by with anything, not one, if they were the household of God, not even the least. Flesh Israel had received her judgment, but God's judgment upon his spiritual household would last generation after generation for any anointed by the righteous powerful Spirit of God that opposes the flesh, and kills the flesh.

2 Timothy 2:19 However God's firm foundation stands, having this seal, "The Lord knows those who are his,"{Numbers 16:5} and, "Let every one who names the name of the Lord{TR reads "Christ" instead of "the Lord"} depart from unrighteousness."

1Cor.4:1 So let a man think of us as Christ's servants, and stewards of God's mysteries. 4:2 Here, moreover, it is required of stewards, that they be found faithful. 4:3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you, or by man's judgment. Yes, I don't judge my own self. 4:4 For I know nothing against myself. Yet I am not justified by this, but he who judges me is the Lord. 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each man will get his praise from God.

These brothers were hating by law their brother into complete annihilation, because of their hatred for the sins of brothers flesh, they did not separate the flesh from the spirit, as Christ does when handing the vessel of flesh over to Satan for its destruction, to save the spirit. No! They wanted to judge fleshly matters, not believing Christ in them would reveal what short of work they were building on, one of flesh or Christ, the in spirit temple of God.

1Cor. 3:11 For no one can lay any other foundation than that which has been laid, which is Jesus Christ. 3:12 But if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or stubble; 3:13 each man's work will be revealed. For the Day will declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself will test what sort of work each man's work is.
3:14 If any man's work remains which he built on it, he will receive a reward. 3:15 If any man's work is burned, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, but as through fire.
3:16 Don't you know that you are a temple of God, and that God's Spirit lives in you? 3:17 If anyone destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him; for God's temple is holy, which you are.
3:18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone thinks that he is wise among you in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise. 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, "He has taken the wise in their craftiness."{Job 5:13}
3:20 And again, "The Lord knows the reasoning of the wise, that it is worthless."{Psalm 94:11} 3:21 Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours 3:22 whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come. All are yours,
3:23 and you are Christ's, and Christ is God's.

1 Peter 4:17 For the time has come for judgment to begin with the household of God. If it begins first with us, what will happen to those who don't obey the Good News of God?

For His Name Sake

****1John 2:12 I write to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.

Most of us Christian's hear about our sins beginning forgiven we take it for granted as a the primary doctrine of Christ, but the apostle John here under the power of the Spirit says: “our sins are forgiven for his name's sake”?

That is much different than us thinking our sin are forgiven for something we have done, is it not? Although, this is a basic thought to our faith, it is nevertheless most overlooked by many Christian's leading them down a road of works of laws. But when we put the power on God's name, and Christ, it really takes it off of us and rightfully puts it into God's hand the King and Law giver.

Ezekiel 36:22 Therefore tell the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord Yahweh: I don't do [this] for your sake, house of Israel, but for my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations, where you went.

Ezekiel 39:7 My holy name will I make known in the midst of my people Israel; neither will I allow my holy name to be profaned any more: and the nations shall know that I am Yahweh, the Holy One in Israel.

In many societies we find the governments are set up to represent the peoples interest so they are systems of politicking where government official lie to the people to get themselves into office telling the people how wonderful they are, and then do as the please once elected. Thus, laws are supposed to be formed from the complaints of the people which means the nation eventually gets smother in millions of laws as the next person strives toget into office and stay in office by making yet more laws!

Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says Yahweh. 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Proverbs 16:2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but Yahweh weighs the motives.

Proverbs 28:6 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity, than he who is perverse in his ways, and he is rich.
As the old saying goes when you try to please everyone you end up pleasing no one! But here is important point God is not a democracy
God forgives us our sin for his name sake, what is God's name sake? Certainly, not a religion, or a government on earth, or a person, but just as the entire book of John speaks about, and stands on, love.

Levitius 19:18 "'You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people; but you shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am Yahweh.

1 John 4:19 We love Him, because he first loved us.

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.

God is love, if we don't know that, we don't know God that is not just a political statement that John is using to sell God it is the key the very sustains of God, him, God is love! Why then has God forgive us our sins, because he is love, and love can do nothing less which is God's government, his very existence, how he rules all his children.

1 John 4:12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God remains in us, and his love has been perfected in us.

If we think anything less then God name sake, his love, forgive us our sins so we could become his children then we will be sent down a road of politicking, fights, into all manner of fleshly acts to justify why we are deserving. This is precisely what was happening at the apostles times, which permeated into yeast kingdom where we have people calling themselves Christian's ruining God's government, where they have created idols of God and Christ of their own hearts making God and Christ handmaids for every need that society comes up with so religion molds itself like clay around the needs of the people. We must accept God's ways not our own, we must believe in God's love and live by it.

Deuteronomy 32:4 The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are justice: a God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Isa,40:13 Who has directed the Spirit of Yahweh, or has taught him as his counselor? 40:14 Who did he take counsel with, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of justice, and taught him knowledge, and showed him the way of understanding?
40:15 Behold, the nations are like a drop in a bucket, and are regarded as a speck of dust on a balance. Behold, he lifts up the islands like a very little thing.

That is the issue John speak to here is how can we do that in a world that is anything but love, where our flesh constantly wars against the Spirit of love, how can we overcome? It is by faith not in ourselves, in our works, it is that God is love as hard as that is for us to understand and because God is love he sent us his love in Christ Jesus, and by his perfect life our sins where abolished “once for all times”.

2Cor. 1:9 Yes, we ourselves have had the sentence of death within ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead.

1 Corinthians 2:5 that your faith wouldn't stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

1 Corinthians 4:20 For the Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.

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.

Beyond that there is no hope on earth or in heaven, each day as is sufficient for its own anxieties from within and without, we must remember that God is love, it is his love for his name sake that he forgive us our sins undeservedly, by his kindness. Let us recall God does not lie, he is not a promise breaker, and above all, remember love cannot fail! The floods will come, and the storms but we are not built upon sandy soil of man religion, governments, or commerce, we are build upon God's love.

Isaiah 1:18 "Come now, and let us reason together," says Yahweh: "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Isaiah 43:25 I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake; and I will not remember your sins.

Isaiah 44:22 I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, your transgressions, and, as a cloud, your sins. Return to me, for I have redeemed you.

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

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

Overcoming The Evil One

****1John.2:13 I write to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, little children, because you know the Father. 2:14 I have written to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God remains in you, and you have overcome the evil one.


What is a private interpretation? Well, we know that none of God's scriptures written by His will has private interpretation it came from God to man and they put God's words on paper expressing God's interpretation not theirs!

2 Peter 1:20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of private interpretation.

Now really think about that message, if it came from the Spirit of God, why would one think they could unlock it meaning by the spirit of their flesh, a private interpretation? Subsequently, if we read John's letter here we will quickly understand by God's Spirit in context to all that we only over come world when we stop allowing our flesh to interpret God's word by the spirit of this world, which is, our flesh, dead to God, because of its sin and lust!

Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray, that you don't enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

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 8:15 You judge according to the flesh. I judge no one.

1 Peter 4:2 that you no longer should live the rest of your time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

The so called cryptic message so many believe the apostle John wrote here is only cryptic to the evil conspires nature found in all fallen flesh. Yes, all in Christ from old to young will over come this world by one thing, and one thing only? By having the word of God in us that is right, Christ Jesus in us, and us in him, the war Christ had in his own flesh carrying ours sins and conquered, but what did he conquer? This world, by conquering death and Hades, which death and Hades is found in all of us by the power of sin of Adam ruling in all flesh.

Romans 5:12 Therefore, as sin entered into the world through one man, and death through sin; and so death passed to all men, because all sinned.

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 6:6 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.

Galatians 3:22 But the Scriptures imprisoned all things under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

One cannot conquer this world by being in the world, and world being in them, they must be in Christ and Christ must be in them and they must stay in the body where the food for the body is found for the strength to conquer this world. All in the world, is against the Christ in us, none of worlds corruption can conquer corruption it can only add to it. But these brothers and sisters were confused over this simple profound thought, forgetting they were delivered out of the corruption into an incorruptible body of Christ, a spirit body, causing them to lose the power of God's kingdom by having the spirit of the flesh which is found in all kingdoms of this world that Christ defeat for them.

1 Corinthians 15:50 Now I say this, brothers,{The word for "brothers" here and where context allows may also be correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings."} that flesh and blood can't inherit the Kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption.

Galatians 6:8 For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption. But he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

2 Peter 1:4 by which he has granted to us his precious and exceedingly great promises; that through these you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust.

The power of God's kingdom is not things the world feed our flesh. No! It is plain and simple, it Christ life that is the power of God's kingdom, that is, an indestructible life of Christ glorified by the Father that gives God's anointed power, a power which completed and conquered this world for them, the same pattern they must follow, the pattern they are imaged after in Christ which they are conformed into his life, not our own life in our flesh or the worlds. No other wisdom of this world, no matter how persuasive, intelligent, beautiful, or gracious it may be - has the power to conquer this world. Every thing the body of Christ needs has be created planned and completed in Christ before our Father placed us upon this road of endurance, nothing is lacking accept in our own fleshly mind not in Christ, if we have faith, we cannot fail, for love cannot fail.

Rom.8:26 In the same way, the Spirit also helps our weaknesses, for we don't know how to pray as we ought. But the Spirit himself makes intercession for us with groanings which can't be uttered.
8:27 He who searches the hearts knows what is on the Spirit's mind, because he makes intercession for the saints according to God. 8:28 We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose.
8:29 For whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.{The word for "brothers" here and where context allows may also be correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings."}
8:30 Whom he predestined, those he also called. Whom he called, those he also justified. Whom he justified, those he also glorified.

Rom. 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service. 12:2 Don't be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God.

Colossians 3:10 and have put on the new man, who is being renewed in knowledge after the image of his Creator.

The World, The spirit of This World


****John.2:15 Don't love the world, neither the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the Father's love isn't in him. 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, isn't the Father's, but is the world's. 2:17 The world is passing away with its lusts, but he who does God's will remains forever.

The apostle John speak a profound truth in complete harmony with his letter in First John. What is that truth? It is a truth of why some did not know God, or his Son Christ Jesus, why they could not hear the words and understand the Spirit words of John, or Christ for that matter. It was a truth that only effects those in Christ, but have no effect upon the flesh.

John 8:15 You judge according to the flesh. I judge no one.

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 3:3 being revealed that you are a letter of Christ, served by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone, but in tablets that are hearts of flesh.

It is a truth that is a demarcation between light and darkness, it is a truth that rejects the spirit of the flesh found in all the world and the things of the world. Moreover, it is why John tells us to test the spirit. is it from God, or is it from the world? The entire world is built, controlled, managed, and kept going by the works of flesh found in each one of us. Yes, a world built on rebellion against God's Holy Spirit causing corruption and death to the world God created from his Spirit. God removed his world from ours when Satan caused sin to enter into the world through a lie, a lie that many during John's time were embracing again as coming from God's Spirit.

1 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 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:

The flesh cannot test the spirits they can test the flesh with words from their bibles, but not the spirit. The flesh can only impute motives to others, but it cannot know the spirit within them by God's Spirit rather it be from God or man flesh under sin? That spirit of the flesh can only fool those not in Christ, Flesh listen to flesh because it words our the world that the apostle John speaks to here. There are no words that from the flesh that can change the spirit of flesh into the Spirit of God no matter how good the arguments it could come up with from the bible, no matter how many scriptures the flesh quoted, flesh produce flesh of no value at all in the Spirit of God that can only produce fruits of the Spirit not of the darkness of this world.

Hebrews 5:12 For when by reason of the time you ought to be teachers, you again need to have someone teach you the rudiments of the first principles of the oracles of God. You have come to need milk, and not solid food.
Hebrews 3:7 Therefore, even as the Holy Spirit says, "Today if you will hear his voice.

1 John 4:5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak of the world, and the world hears them.

1 John 4:1 Beloved, don't believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

The apostles John makes the point time and time again in his letter we have the truth, why? Because we have the Spirit of God that is in God's holy temple Christ Jesus, and because of that those anointed in Christ would know without doubt if the spirit came from the flesh or from God, the two are diametrically opposed, rejecting each other to the point that those of the flesh could not even hear the words coming from the Spirit of God.

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.

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 flesh would simply translated true Spirit food into the flesh polluting it to uphold the spirit of the world they lived in. They would steal every precious Spirit truth filling it with yeast of the corrupt flesh boasting that they had the truth and attack those of the Spirit of God's planting. There could be no dwelling between the two, it wasn't John's idea, or any one of the apostles idea it was a truth that must stand even if they did not know why? God is not this world or the spirit in this world he own none of it, not one thing in it.

James.4:1 Where do wars and fightings among you come from? Don't they come from your pleasures that war in your members?
4:2 You lust, and don't have. You kill, covet, and can't obtain. You fight and make war. You don't have, because you don't ask.
4:3 You ask, and don't receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it for your pleasures.
4:4 You adulterers and adulteresses, don't you know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

God's children where birth out of it, its not their world, their world was from above the Spirit that feed them was from above, it was not from below. Those twisting the scriptures where loving the world, they were of this world because the spoke the language of the world flesh. Then John makes clear the only way to conquer this world in opposition to all that is in God, is by his Spirit, placed in the Son of God there is no other way. Not by scriptural knowledge, repeating words from our bibles, or saying God's name over and over again, or even Christ name over and over again. No! God's Spirit cannot be conquered by this world and its corruption, it cannot stand in the God's word Christ Jesus. It has no power over the Spirit it can only have power over the flesh, it can only blind the flesh. But none of the worries or frets of this world effects God at all. Subsequently, many would fall away from the righteousness found in Christ because they were never his, they go out because they are not of the Spirit separating them from this world, they must seek the level of this world exposing them as liars, like the Father of this world.

Jude 1:19 These are they who cause divisions, and are sensual, not having the Spirit.

Jude 1:20 But you, beloved, keep building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.

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.

They have been defeated by Christ long ago, what flesh calls new is not new at all it is the same old spirit of the world seeking new knowledge to feed the flesh so it can go on supporting its system of things, religion, government, and commerce. Those in Christ have been made new not by knowledge but the power of Christ incorruptible life. A life free of this world, a life free of sin and the power of sin death, a life that conquered this world that has been freely given us provide we walk in the Spirit from which it was created.

1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world.

1 John 5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is God's testimony which he has testified concerning his Son.

Antichrist

****1John.2:18 Little children, these are the end times, and as you heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have arisen. By this we know that it is the final hour.
2:19 They went out from us, but they didn't belong to us; for if they had belonged to us, they would have continued with us. But they left, that they might be revealed that none of them belong to us. [/b]

The apostle John seems to speak in mysterious words here, but did he? First we must ask a basic, simple, elementary question? What and who did John refer to when saying they didn't belong to us? In other words, who did us include? Who did these brothers belong to?

1 Thessalonians 5:5 You are all children of light, and children of the day. We don't belong to the night, nor to darkness.

Was it to a religion, a certain group, the little group John had formed by his teaching just who is John referring to here? The answer is simple, it is found in the entire book of First John which has one theme of belonging to Christ, and Christ belonging to God!

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.

Now we have context a starting point that simplifies the mystery. Thus, if we are not in Christ, then we are against Christ, that is, anti (anti means against and nothing more!) Moreover, we are lawless, why? Well, if you follow the theme of the bible into Christ and why he was sent to earth we would know the only place we can be sinless is in Christ. We cannot be sinless in the law of the Jews any longer if we are a sinner we are against God, and his righteousness making us lawless to his ruling our lives. We are not in the one place God has said we can be made sinless, that is , righteous, being a sinner we cannot be righteous. Subsequently, we must be imputed someone else righteousness not our own life because we all sinned and fall short of God's glory, which glory means being created without sin.

1 John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death.

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 3:4 Everyone who sins also commits lawlessness. Sin is lawlessness.

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

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

Thus, these brothers in Christ were created new in Christ, having a new life, not one they had given themselves by knowledge, study, or attending a religious meeting, but by God in the blood of Christ Jesus. Those not created as Christ, his body members had nothing to worry about if some were teaching and leaving forming a new religion, why? Well, here is the simple truth? Can the flesh, being a sinner live in Christ? No! Of course not, flesh is dead in Christ! So how can a sinner hear what the righteous sinless Spirit of God says in the first place? The flesh can't, and if one is speaking another language having no communication that can be understood they will leave and go into a group that speaks what they want to hear, or at least communicate with each other in the same fleshly language. There is what we in Christ should understand there is a demarcation God himself created not us! Not us because we didn't do something or saying something good enough to convince the other person using God's word the bible.

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.

No! We must understand God confused the language at Babel, God gave us the pure language in Christ by Spirit and truth. Those of the flesh not in Christ belong by God's law in Babel in the confusion of false religion. In other words, they cannot hear the Spirit of God found in Christ and because we are his body members they cannot hear us, or belong to us. We are missing nothing by letting them go, they are teaching nothing new, but false religion because they cannot be taught by the Spirit – impossible!

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.

John 14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world can't receive; for it doesn't see him, neither knows him. You know him, for he lives with you, and will be in you.

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.

2Cor.3:13 and not as Moses, who put a veil on his face, that the children of Israel wouldn't look steadfastly on the end of that which was passing away. 3:14 But their minds were hardened, for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains, because in Christ it passes away. 3:15 But to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. 3:16 But whenever one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Romans 11:8 According as it is written, "God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear, to this very day."{Deuteronomy 29:4; Isaiah 29:10}

We are not making judgments of good, or bad, right or wrong God has spoke telling us light does not dwell with darkness, God has set out plainly before all creation he does not dwell in sin, that is, darkness, therefor, we cannot be in Christ and the flesh at the same time, we cannot be in Christ and sin.

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.

Knowing All Things

****1John.2:20 You have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all have knowledge.{Or, "know what is true." Or, "know all things."} 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.
[/b]
Here we find much confusion for Christian's, in fact, nothing seems to terrify some Christian's groups more then a person stating what the apostle John's wrote here! That the brothers of Christ have an anointing that actually teaches them all things they need about the truth, shocking words!

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.

Yes, stunning words because it strips every person, and/or group of the unrighteous power to enslave God's children by their knowledge of the scriptures. Which is the entire foundation stone all false religion stands upon a stone of enslavement which is destroyed by John's words; if his words are true? Yet, if they are not true then God neither has any longer children upon earth who are “in the truth”?

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.

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.

2 Peter 2:2 Many will follow their immoral{TR reads "destructive" instead of "immoral"} ways, and as a result, the way of the truth will be maligned.

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.

If one owes their understanding of the truth to a religion; some person other than God, they are not of God. Subsequently, they cannot have the truth! But how can someone make such an outlandish statement as John did when we all have bibles, we all read others religious person writings, we have all been influence by some religion or person, and/or family members?

John 14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world can't receive; for it doesn't see him, neither knows him. You know him, for he lives with you, and will be in you.

John 15:26 "When the Counselor{Greek Parakletos: Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, and Comfortor.} has come, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will testify about me.

But actually John is talking about two different things here. John's letter is speaking about a fundamental truth for all God's anointed. John is speaking of two distinct separate spirit(s) one, of this world he already stated at the start of his letter, and secondly, the Spirit of God. One is light and the other is darkness, one is righteous, and the other lawless, that is, unrighteous coming from sin not atone for by the blood of Christ.

1 John 2:15 Don't love the world, neither the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the Father's love isn't in him.

1 John 3:1 Behold, how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! For this cause the world doesn't know us, because it didn't know him.

1 John 3:13 Don't be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you.

1 John 4:5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak of the world, and the world hears them.

The two spirits do not mixes there is an immediate and profound rejection of each others, with no doubt that the spirit of our flesh opposes the Spirit of God, it lust against the Spirit of God. The truth of the bible in the Greek Scriptures stand on the birth of God's children, by what? The very life of God, his Spirit of God, because they are dead to the flesh, so their sins our blotted out, put away once for all times never to be remember no more.

Gal. 5:17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, that you may not do the things that you desire.

Being forgiven, declared righteous by Christ blood allows them to be in Christ body as his members without sin, as a spirit person created by God's own Spirit making them light as Christ is, God's light. With that context the life of Christ indwells the anointed child of God. In other words, they have a test stone, a touch stone indwelling them that is righteous the life of Christ which rejects the spirit of the flesh, the two are diametrically opposed to each others.

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:

1 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 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.

No matter what words are spoken by the flesh even if it uses God's word the bible, or the person has a PHD in theology the spirit of the flesh is rejected by the righteous life of Christ indwelling God's children. In others words, if it spoken by the spirit of the flesh it is an error, its that simple.

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.

The flesh is yeast which befouls the whole lump of Christ the unleavened bread of God having no flesh; the spirit of the flesh is not in Christ or God, both incorruptible to sin or darkness. This sure seal of God's approval indwells each child of God as God's teacher. The question is. is it from God or the spirit of the flesh using writing about God, and/or preaching about God? This testing is not a mystery it is a fact that we are told in no uncertain terms that one cannot be in the flesh and please God, because the spirit of the flesh no matter how impressive, no matter how important or great that person is, is not of God or Christ they are spirit from the spirit of their flesh, not the Spirit of God just because they employ God's name, bible or have a zeal for God's word.

John. 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.
5:42 But I know you, that you don't have God's love in yourselves.
5:43 I have come in my Father's name, and you don't receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him.
5:44 How can you believe, who receive glory from one another, and you don't seek the glory that comes from the only God?

We of Christ do not need anyone to test the spirit(s) for us, or teach us what is clean and unclean regarding righteousness and unrighteousness, because we are the test stone by having the Spirit of God in dwelling us by the life of Christ, which Spirit is the truth of God. This is the meaning of John's words there was no need to argue over words, if they were of the spirit of flesh there was nothing anyone of God's children could do by argument would change the spirit of the flesh to 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.

Romans 8:12 So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

It was simple, the two spirits were like opposite ends of magnet they could not be brought together no matter how brilliant our message is, or how much compromises we make to appease! They could not hear our message coming from the Spirit of God, nor would they listen to us because they are not of us. It was not a war of words against the flesh to prove it wrong, or defeat it, because our own flesh was not defeated by religious doctrinal wars it was killed by God's own love for us in Christ not because we did something good or bad.

2 Corinthians 5:16 Therefore we know no one after the flesh from now on. Even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more.

2 Corinthians 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we don't wage war according to the flesh;

2 Corinthians 10:4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the throwing down of strongholds.

The truth could not be lost because Christ is our truth, and his life is incorruptible if anyone has God's Spirit, that is, being anointed by God's Spirit it will always reject the flesh, and its spirit, so the truth of God, what he is, who he is, and what is righteous and unrighteous can never be lost. It is only in the flesh and its justification of it wars of proving oneself righteous in the flesh like all the world does that will mislead God's children. If they place reverences on religion, people, unearthing old scrolls as being the source of truth they are spreading yeast. The truth is the Spirit that teaches us between flesh and God's Spirit, it is what Adam lost, it is what God is restoring to us, by Christ his Spirit to mankind.

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.

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.

Thus, reading constantly the bible may or may not help us listen to the Spirit of truth indwelling us. The spirit of the flesh can be so stubborn that it refuses God's Spirit direction because of some doctrines teaching that causes our own flesh to shut our mind to the Spirit of God and it teachings us the new covenant of love. We can promote some new light that we think mankind cannot live without or God's people will never have the complete truth of God if we do not drive it with our flesh where we deny the immutable undeniable truth of the Spirit freely given us by the life of Christ indwelling us.

Hebrews 3:7 Therefore, even as the Holy Spirit says, "Today if you will hear his voice.

Philemon 1:25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

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.

There is no truth in the flesh it was rejected as evil by God once Adam sinned if one puts yeast into unleavened bread it corrupts it, it does not improve it, or makes it better. The entire lesson John teaches us is about the spirit of the world opposed to the Spirit of God that each child of God has, or they are not of God or Christ. It is not an argument to distrust everyone, and everything, it is a positive truth that we have nothing to worry about if we remain in the Spirit that it cannot mislead us or deny the truth Christ Jesus.

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 2:17 Therefore he was obligated in all things to be made like his brothers, that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make atonement for the sins of the people.

1 Thessalonians 5:24 He who calls you is faithful, who will also do it.

2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you, and guard you from the evil one.

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

Liar The Antichrist

****1John.2:22 Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the Antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. 2:23 Whoever denies the Son, the same doesn't have the Father. He who confesses the Son has the Father also.
2:24 Therefore, as for you, let that remain in you which you heard from the beginning. If that which you heard from the beginning remains in you, you also will remain in the Son, and in the Father. 2:25 This is the promise which he promised us, the eternal life. 2:26 These things I have written to you concerning those who would lead you astray.

The apostle John now speaks to the truth of his whole letter to God's anointed children, what is that truth? It is the Spirit that is truth! Yes, the Spirit that they had received from the beginning of their anointing into, where? Into the eternal life, who's eternal life? The Christ, the life he gained by his perfect precious obedience to God his Father YHWH.

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".

John 17:2 even as you gave him authority over all flesh, he will give eternal life to all whom you have given him.

1 John 1:2 (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);

There is not doubt the eternal life indwelling these brothers was the only truth they needed to obey, listen to, and be loyal to. There was no other truth found anywhere under the Sun or in heaven that matter, it was just that simple, anything less than the Spirit was a lie for those born again into the Christ the eternal life. Anything outside of Christ life, the eternal life for these brothers were of the world and a lie, no matter how wonderful and grand it made them feel it was not the truth promised them by the Father in their anointing.

John 12:25 He who loves his life will lose it. He who hates his life in this world will keep it to eternal life.

John 6:27 Don't work for the food which perishes, but for the food which remains to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For God the Father has sealed him."

Matthew 19:29 Everyone who has left houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, will receive one hundred times, and will inherit eternal life.

Christ is not of this world, he belong to none of it, he was not birthed by flesh and blood to continue a legacy of human kings on earth. No Christ was birthed by God's Spirit anointed to bring life to many that would love the Father more than this world. Christ gave up his life on earth when he accepted God's anointing from heaven, he was born into God, because he had no sins. He than started God's ministry to bring forth a new creation of children for God by Holy Spirit to worship in Spirit and truth. Nothing of their past life in the flesh was recorded and kept record of, why? They were a new creation unlike the old of Israel where human record, history was mandatory to keep the fleshly nation in proper control.

John.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.

John 3:3 Jesus answered him, "Most certainly, I tell you, unless one is born anew,{The word translated "anew" here and in John 3:7 (anothen) also means "again" and "from above".} he can't see the Kingdom of God."

John 18:36 Jesus answered, "My Kingdom is not of this world. If my Kingdom were of this world, then my servants would fight, that I wouldn't be delivered to the Jews. But now my Kingdom is not from here."

We find a void a chasm between the history of the Jews and the apostles, nothing of their fleshly lives matters, or needed recorded as if to give them creditability with flesh, no none! Their creditability came from the highest place God, with the stamp of approval the Spirit, yes, the Spirit is the truth the flesh is the lie! However, soon, in fact, right at the time of John's writing the antichrist was at work, working at doing what?

John 5:41 I don't receive glory from men.

John 5:44 How can you believe, who receive glory from one another, and you don't seek the glory that comes from the only God?

John 7:18 He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

Working at giving the glory back to flesh, the legacy of men claiming to be important members of the body of Christ. This is what was causing confusion, and deception because it promoted that which is against Christ, that is, anti, and what is against Christ? The very thing each member of the body of Christ should be dead in, the flesh.

Romans 9:8 That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as a seed.

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.

2 Corinthians 1:17 When I therefore was thus determined, did I show fickleness? Or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be the "Yes, yes" and the "No, no?"

2 Corinthians 3:3 being revealed that you are a letter of Christ, served by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone, but in tablets that are hearts of flesh.

Yes, the sinful flesh God dealt with for thousand's of years by the law for sin and corruption of the flesh, the very law Christ fulfilled and put away stripping the power of fleshly Israel was making its way insidiously into the body of Christ that must worship in Spirit and truth. Yes, men teaching flesh instead of Spirit and truth. Men bent on making a name, a legacy upon earth in their flesh for all the world to know and wonder in amazement at!

1 Corinthians 12:25 that there should be no division in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another.

Acts 4:26 The kings of the earth take a stand, and the rulers take council together, against the Lord, and against his Christ{Christ (Greek) and Messiah (Hebrew) both mean Anointed One.}.'{Psalm 2:1-2}

Mark.10:42 Jesus summoned them, and said to them, "You know that they who are recognized as rulers over the nations lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them.
10:43 But it shall not be so among you, but whoever wants to become great among you shall be your servant.
10:44 Whoever of you wants to become first among you, shall be bondservant of all.
10:45 For the Son of Man also came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

These brothers need not wonder, or worry the Spirit is the truth, the Spirit rejects the flesh and its weak mundane reasoning as of no value at all. There was no trick God had not now said become part of the world and make a lasting name for Christianity, no! That is not the pattern of the Spirit that is truth, the Christ the eternal they live in. The message was the same never changing the truth can't change or its not the truth, if it were not truth it would be flesh that changes from minute to minute like the lie always adapting to cover up it lies and bad fruit making it appear beautiful to those perishing in their sins.
Acts 8:33 In his humiliation, his judgment was taken away. Who will declare His generation? For his life is taken from the earth."{Isaiah 53:7,8}

Matthew 10:24 "A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his lord. 10:25 It is enough for the disciple that he be like his teacher, and the servant like his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more those of his household!

Yes! Out is not in Christ, out is against Christ, but why? Because there is no other place for God's Spirit, if we are not in Christ than we are against Christ in the flesh, which flesh cannot serve God, or please God, but instead lust against God righteous Spirit in falsehood and lies. Using a name, blurting it out while under trial does not mean we are in Christ, it is the Spirit that is truth, which means, our wars are not with flesh, but spirit being, wicked rulers of Satan system; blurting out a name as a good luck charm does not stand against mighty spirit being bent on the destruction of Christ brothers.

Matt.7:21 Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 7:22 Many will tell me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in your name, in your name cast out demons, and in your name do many mighty works?' 7:23 Then I will tell them, 'I never knew you. Depart from me, you who work iniquity.'

1 Corinthians 3:16 Don't you know that you are a temple of God, and that God's Spirit lives in you?

1 Corinthians 3:17 If anyone destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him; for God's temple is holy, which you are.

1 Corinthians 6:19 Or don't you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which you have from God? You are not your own.
It is the Spirit that is truth, it is the mighty eternal life of Christ in supreme kingly power that stands against the wicked spirits because we are part of his life, as we are in him, and him in us, it is the Spirit that is truth that saves us, which gives us a mind that cannot be overtaken by the wicked spirits. It is the Spirit that is the truth of God's anointed, that has made them alive in the eternal life of Christ Jesus that is all powerful in overcoming this world, not us, in the flesh blurting out Jesus Christ, or Jehovah! Let us remember it is the flesh that stand against Christ that indwells us in truth of the Spirit. our battles are not with this earth, it not with the people of this earth we are dead to that life, our battles are with wicked spirit person in heaven place because Christ is removing their power over this world.

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 2:18 For through him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.

Ephesians 2:22 in whom you also are built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.

Galatians 5:25 If we live by the Spirit, let's also walk by the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we don't wage war according to the flesh;

2 Corinthians 5:16 Therefore we know no one after the flesh from now on. Even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more.

Ephesians 6:12 For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world's rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Ps.90:10 The days of our years are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty years; yet their pride is but labor and sorrow, for it passes quickly, and we fly away.
90:11 Who knows the power of your anger, your wrath according to the fear that is due to you?
90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

That is why we cannot stand or walk in the flesh, it has no purpose in what we are created for by God's Spirit. This world has been judged long before we were born, Christ conquered this world, we are not part of it as though God is well pleased with it works, no! God is well please with the works of his own hand, Christ Jesus, his new creation created to set creation free from the wicked spirit force corrupting and controlling it into the freedom of the son's of his kingdom. Any not part of that fight against Christ.

Eph.1:18 having the eyes of your hearts{TR reads "understanding" instead of "hearts"} enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what are the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 1:19 and what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to that working of the strength of his might 1:20 which he worked in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and made him to sit at his right hand in the heavenly places, 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. 1:22 He put all things in subjection under his feet, and gave him to be head over all things for the assembly, 1:23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.

Eph. 2:4 But God, being rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us,
2:5 even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
2:6 and raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
2:7 that in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus;
2:8 for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
2:9 not of works, that no one would boast.
2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before that we would walk in them.
2:11 Therefore remember that once you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called "uncircumcision" by that which is called "circumcision," (in the flesh, made by hands);
2:12 that you were at that time separate from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off are made near in the blood of Christ.
2:14 For he is our peace, who made both one, and broke down the middle wall of partition/

1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world: your faith. 5:5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

1 John 5:19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

Teaching Truth


****1John.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.


The aged apostle John did not say for his brothers and sisters to remain in the Jewish faith, or in a Gentle religion, no! John made it abundantly clear where the truth was for these brothers and sisters, it was not in the world, or in their flesh, nor in some lost research, John did not direct anyone of Christ anointed into the ancient writing of the Jewish faith for the truth. Moreover, and not surprisingly, neither did any of the apostles of Christ, nor Christ himself, but do you know why?

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

Philippians 4:19 My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Lets us be clear here before some start grasping from such apostate statements the apostles and the Jewish faith certainly read the holy writings, nor were they stating anywhere that they were not of God and from his mouth. Here is the point, the “key” to unlocking all the scripture waited upon one event for all that ever lived, or would live and that is in the person of Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:11 For no one can lay any other foundation than that which has been laid, which is Jesus Christ.

1Corinthians 3:23 and you are Christ's, and Christ is God's.

Yes, Christ is the truth which is more than a perfunctory statement, to have the truth one must have the mind of Christ Jesus, not their own, or from someones writings, one must have the mind of Christ its that simple. However, for some having the mind of Christ itself is an esoteric thought an unreality written on paper in their bibles as if not literal, the reality in their lives.

1 Corinthians 1:10 Now I beg you, brothers,{The word for "brothers" here and where context allows may also be correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings."} through the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfected together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

1 Corinthians 2:16 "For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct him?"{Isaiah 40:13} But we have Christ's mind.

Christ mind cannot be taken out of his body and placed on paper as the reality of truth that is a misnomer and a myth of false religion. The mind of Christ feeds the body of Christ just as creation itself teaches us. We do not do a Frankenstein by a mind transplant into a foreign body like a freak of nature something unnatural to God and man.

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.

Romans 8:6 For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace;

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.

Christ is the reality of truth the restoration of all truth which is not on paper, but in the truth, the mind of Christ, why? Because he has God's mind the creator of truth, the Christ. In Christ as the go between of man and God is found God's truth expressed to us as the bread of life in Spirit, making it the truth. In other words, the bread of life is Christ, the holy manna of God that feeds and cherish his spirit body which these brothers and sisters were all of part of.

John 6:41 The Jews therefore murmured concerning him, because he said, "I am the bread which came down out of heaven."

John 6:48 I am the bread of life.

John 6:50 This is the bread which comes down out of heaven, that anyone may eat of it and not die.

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 6:58 This is the bread which came down out of heaven--not as our fathers ate the manna, and died. He who eats this bread will live forever."

The obvious deduction should be for any thinking person loving God is to conclude the truth is never lost or can it be covered up like some ancient scroll. The truth is near us, just a prayer away, for any human the Good News is being declared from heaven by spirit son's of God if we should seek God's face, in Jesus Christ.

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.

John 14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world can't receive; for it doesn't see him, neither knows him. You know him, for he lives with you, and will be in you.

John 15:26 "When the Counselor{Greek Parakletos: Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, and Comfortor.} has come, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will testify about me.

The truth is the Spirit that unlocks Christ mind, which is ultimately God's mind to us. That truth is beyond corruption of any lie, it is beyond this life into all eternity. That truth is found in the incorruptible living life of our Lord seated at the right hand of YHWH. Let us understand that despite us, despite religion, despite the wild beast of human governments in all the conspiracy ever schemed up - has not daunted the incorruptible truth.

Titus 1:2 in hope of eternal life, which God, who can't lie, promised before time began;

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 also understand who the creator is, he does not have to slowly over thousand's of years dig up truths from the ancient past to educated his people in a twinkling of eye the truth. The nonsense that God must educated his children like we do in this world is truthfully and forthrightly weak. Putting God into a box of human flesh only makes him corruptible as we are, of no value at all for any lasting truth.

John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh. That which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

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 13:14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, for its lusts.

God created, mind you, from nothing human being, he created the mind of mankind and knows perfectly will how to download any files he chooses into their minds if he so pleases at an instant of a heart beat! Adam was not a mistake or was the information God gave him from his own mind as he pleased to educate him with no other association from another human being.


When God stated that he personally and from now on would educate his own people in the ways of truth, and peace he did not set up a religion to feed that information too them. There is no need to even wonder why? Adam was lost to sin and God's Spirit mind, each person reading their bibles should know how Adam received his education, none can be fooled in that thought. One should not wonder or be surprised the perfect instruction for a perfect man must come directly from God's himself to sustain his eternal life. Furthermore, one should not be confused that Christ is the last Adam that restore us to perfect truth and life with our heavenly Father. Now in context, John's words are truth, because he tells those in Christ that they need no one at all to teach them the truth, because they live in the truth if there are in Christ Jesus.

Jeremiah 31:34 and they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know Yahweh; for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says Yahweh: for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin will I remember no more.

Hebrews 8:11 They will not teach every man his fellow citizen,{TR reads "neighbor" instead of "fellow citizen"} and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for all will know me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.

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.

John is not talking to the world, for the world could not hear him or Christ he is speaking only to those in Christ.

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.

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.
