Hi Deborah
Thank you for your reply.

1Jn 2:27  But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
1Jn 2:28  And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
1Jn 2:29  If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.
   


V27 The anointing we receive is the Holy Spirit and it is the spirit that teaches us all things pertaining to God I don't think he tells us everything at once but gradually a little at a time as long as we continue to seek God the Spirit will show us the way and the Spirit will abide in us and we will abide in Christ.
V28 Here John tells us that we must remain in the body of Christ how ever hard it may seam Christ will give us the strength to endure and when he returns we can meet him with shouts of joy confidently.
V29 Yes we know our Lord is righteous and we must do everything in our power to follow his example.

Love and Peace

v28,29

A relationship with Christ is what gives us confidence as we look towards the Day of Judgement. Obedient, committed Christians have nothing to fear; they know where they stand with their Lord, and are ready to meet Him.
Just as we cannot help but resemble our human parents, so the children of God are bound to exhibit righteousness in the way that they live.

Dave,
           "V27 The anointing we receive is the Holy Spirit and it is the spirit that teaches us all things pertaining to God I don't think he tells us everything at once but gradually a little at a time as long as we continue to seek God the Spirit will show us the way and the Spirit will abide in us and we will abide in Christ."

remember John is talking here about the knowledge of the truth of salvation. He is not talking about not needing teachers of Christianity.

Hi Deborah & John
Thank you for your replies good points made.

1Jn 3:1  Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
1Jn 3:2  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
1Jn 3:3  And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
       


V 1 How wonderful to be called a son of God and everything that it means to know we can rely on our heavenly father and all his promises to us and that we are not of the world although we are in the world we are not of the world and the world dose not know us or God.
V 2 Although we are sons of God we still don't know what we will be we must wait patiently for our Lords second coming and meet him face to face and we shall be like him what a wonderful day that will be let us pray it is not to far of.
V 3 So let us keep this hope alive and seek the Lord daily in prayer and pray for the return of our Lord soon until then let us cling to this wonderful hope which purifies us which keeps us in the body of Christ our Lord and we know his body is pure.

Love and Peace

John1:12 to All who recieved him, he gave the RIGHT to become children of God.

As Christians we are born of God. Which raises the question those who think they can lose the salvation God has given them, what are they trusting in. That's a red herring.

We have a glorious hope, a shame we mess up so often.

I John 3:1-3

It is truly amazing that God should want to make us His children! The only possible reason there could be is that He loves us! Nothing we do can alter this fact, and nothing can stop Him from loving us. So this relationship will endure into eternity - which means that the best is yet to come!

We don't know very much about the future life, but we do know that when He comes again we shall not only see Him in all His glory, but we shall actually share in His glory ourselves!

In the meantime, glimpses of that glory should already be visible in the way that we live. If we are complacent about sin now, we cannot be confident about our eternal destiny.

Hi Deborah & John
Thank you for your replies

1Jn 3:4  Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
1Jn 3:5  And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
1Jn 3:6  Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
     


V4 The law that was given to Moses still applies in the sense that it tells us what is sin and we are told somewhere else if we break jest one law we break the whole law so we need to be very careful how we think and act even thinking of killing someone makes us guilty os murder.

V5 The Lord came into the world to save sinners and I am one our sins are removed by his precious blood which cleanses us when we repent if we willingly sin then we have no part in him if we keep his commandments then we are clothed with his righteousness.

V6 If we abide in him then we should not sin to do this we need to follow the laws of Love, Love the lord our God and to Love our neighbour as our self and to Love our enemies if we follow these laws we will not sin.


Love and Peace

v4-6

"Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness."(v4)
'Lawlessness' is the attitude that says, "God can?t tell me what to do." (Obviously, this leads on to law-breaking)

But if we are Christians, we know that God has sent Jesus to be our Saviour. Even John the Baptist knew this (John 1:29)! Only One who was sinless could offer His life to atone for the sins of others.

"No-one who lives in Him keeps on sinning." (v6) (The KJV doesn't make it clear that John is talking about continual sin, not occasional sin) Because Christ and sin are incompatible, the Christian and sin are also incompatible. How do we know if someone is a Christian? Not because they have "made a commitment" or even been baptised, but because their lives have changed. Christians will still fall into sin occasionally, but we will not walk in it persistently.
