This knowledge communicated to others brought those who accepted it into a fellowship of knowledge and hope. Those are in fellowship who are partakers of the same faith, hopes, and privileges. With us. All the saints entered into fellowship with the apostles, but the apostles were in fellowship with the Father. This grand fellowship, that of the saints with the Father and the Son, is simply a guarantee that no good thing will be withheld from us; that "all things are ours".

Tom T.'s comment on 2011-09-11 23:13:37:

1 John 1
The Word of God which was from the beginning with God and is God, was made known to us in the flesh. John said that what we have heard, seen, looked upon and handled is the Word of Life.
For the life was made known to us, from the Father; that what we have seen and heard was declared to you that we may have fellowship with you also; because truly we can fellowship together with you because we are one with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. John tells us that we can have joy by knowing the truth and that our joy may be full. This then is the message from John that he declares to us; that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.
If we do not walk in darkness but walk in the light then we can have fellowship with God and with one another, because we are then Cleansed from sin being washed in the blood of Jesus Christ.
