(this is a scan from the exact, authentic, original 1611 'HE' King James Bible)

1 That which was from þe beginning, which wee haue heard, which wee haue seene with our eyes, which wee haue looked vpon, and our hands haue handled of the word of life.

2 (For the life was manifested, and we haue seene it, and beare witnes, and shew vnto you that eternall life which was with the Father, and was manifested vnto vs.)

3 That which wee haue seene and heard, declare we vnto you, that ye also may haue felowship with vs; and truely our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Sonne Iesus Christ.

4 And these things write we vnto you, that your ioy may be full.

5 This then is the message which we haue heard of him, and declare vnto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkenesse at all.

6 If we say that we haue felowship with him, and walke in darkenesse, we lie, and doe not the trueth.

7 But if wee walke in the light, as he is in the light, wee haue fellowship one with another, and the blood of Iesus Christ his Sonne clenseth vs from all sinne.

8 If we say that we haue no sinne, we deceiue our selues, and the trueth is not in vs.

9 If we confesse our sinnes, hee is faithfull, & iust to forgiue vs our sinnes, and to cleanse vs from all vnrighteousnesse.

10 If we say that we haue not sinned, wee make him a liar, and his word is not in vs.

Don "t celebrate yet at my fall my enemies, for when I fall I will rise, thank you LORD for taking care of my sins past, present and future Halleliyah


Dharam's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 6/26/2014, 11:14am...

This is a wonderful promise from God to all believers. Though we are born again we still have the sin nature which is the flesh. So God in his infinite wisdom has provided a way of escape for us. That if we ask for his forgiveness he will forgive us.


Toni's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 6/26/2014, 6:51am...

Faithful and just is our God. He will do just what He said He will do. If we turn our hearts to His Son Jesus and tell Him all that we have done, humbling ourselves before His mighty hand and crying some tears, God is quick to forgives us. He is a fair God. He will not hold our sins against us. What 's more, He doesn 't bring our past back up to us ever. Finally, through Jesus, God will cleanse us and purge us from all filthiness of the flesh. And all that we once were will be forgotten. We will be clean through the Word.


MockingBird's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 6/26/2014, 4:39am...

I believe that that scripture is saying that I must acknowledge my sin by confessing it to God although He already knows I have sinned I must recognize my sin by confessing it and asking forgiveness and turn from that sin and then God will forgive me and cleanse me from it. Praise God for His gift of forgiveness and cleansing with the blood of Jesus Christ.


Dan's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 6/26/2014, 2:52am...

God is Light verse 5 If we keep his commandments God who is Light will dwell in us and we will dwell in God who is Light 1 Jn 3 24 And this is his commandment that we believe Jesus is his Son And love one another as he gave commandment 1 Jn 3 22 If we say that we have fellowship with God and walk in darkness meaning we do not keep his commandments we lie 1Jn 2 22 Who is a liar but he that denies Jesus is the Christ meaning he is not the Son of God He is antichrist who denies both the Father and the Son 1 Jn 1 7 But if we walk in God the Light As he is in God the Light we have fellowship One with Another thats two meaning him and his son Jesus not one another meaning everyone


Olabode's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 6/26/2014, 2:34am...

Sin is something that can bring separation between us and God.Isai.59 1 2. prob. says he that covers his sins shall not prosper. Our God is faithful and just. He was encouraging us in Isa.1 10 that we should come and let us reason together, though our sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, red as crimson,they shall be as wool. if we can come unto him and acknowledge that, we have sinned and confess with our mouth, humble ourselves, pray, seek his face and turn from our wicked ways, he is just and faithful to forgive all our sins and cleanse us from all our unrighteousness.


Chimezie Henry's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 6/26/2014, 1:44am...

1 jn 1 tells us of God 's love,his forgiving nature, and ever source of light that we need. It is by confessing Him as our Lord that this light will shine on us. Never to wonder in darkness is to carefully avoid the occassions of sin for the scripture says nothing unclean would make it to the kingdom. Thus let us be light as Christ is without compromise.


Dan's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 6/20/2014, 7:01am...

God is light ! Jn 5 If we keep his Commandments 1 Jn 3 23 God who is light will dwell in us and we will dwell in him 1Jn 3 24 if i keep his commandments it is imposible to walk in darkness for i have fellowship one with another with him and his son Jesus Christ the same fellowship they had The fellowship there talking about has to do with this blending with us and God Fellowship is not friendship
