(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.

John chapter reminds me of a most high and powerful GODD that we serve. I had to remove myself from others in order to walk in the light. The fellowship within my brothers and sisters has been broken. Knowing and accepting LORD JESUS CHRIST died for our sins, The Light will wipe away the darkness. Faith conquers all.


James's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 10/09/2014, 3:22pm...

jesus died for our salvation healing and forgiveness but we have to appropriate salvation by receiving is not an automatic.people who say I don 't have to confess my sins must also believe that they are saved since jesus provided it don 't have to receive jesus.this is error you are healed saved forgiven but you have to make a withdrawal by acting confessing without works is dead reply to Arthur comments


Gemmel's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 10/04/2014, 6:39pm...

I John 1 4 speaks of Joy being full some translations say our, this depicts the fact of the intention that to whom this is addressed that they will share in the same eternal life rather than eternal restlessness. That the disciples have seen and touched this Eternal life and seek foe the extension of others to know this Joy of fellowship with a Holy Eternal Father and His Son Jesus Christ. jesus Christ the witnessed Eternal life the one who makes it possible to have this Eternal life and through whom we find rest and peace and an indescribable spiritual Joy.

Brian, you must submit yourself to God, then He will fight your battles for you. God tells us that if we will submit to Him we can resist the devil and he will flee.


Brian Harvey's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 9/28/2014, 3:23am...

This verse is about the problem of broken fellowship and this should not to be confused with sonship. As a child of God through the new birth I am eternally His child. Just as I am a child in the Harvey family forever. There were times though my fellowship was broken or strained when I was sinful or unappreciated my parents. The same is possible with God or brothers or sisters It 's then I need to be humble and honest and self examination with the help of the holy spirit tells me I am wrong. Then I obtain restoration by owning up to my sin my pride my faults, and enjoy the fellowship once again. I belive that if you read the chapter and ask does this fit with the rest ofcthe chapter and contextually is this explanation a fit? You can accept or dismiss this conclusion, moreover practice it! Behold what manner of love the Father has set before us that we should be called the children of God.


James Padilla's 1 John Chapter 1 comment about verse 5 on 9/27/2014, 8:23am...

God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. To walk in the light is to walk transparantly in the full exposure of His light allowing no darkness, no unrighteousness to go unchecked in our hearts and actions. To walk in the light does not necessarly mean that we are perfect in our intentions or actions but that when we hamartia miss the mark sin, we quickly look to the source where the glory of God is manifested, namely the cross of Christ where our sin and shame are not only exposed but judged and separated as far as the east is from the west. We now have nothing to hide, and while I may readily confess that I am a sinner I can also boldly say that I am justified and accounted righteous. This is how we walk in the light, and thus walk in God who is light. For in Him we live and move and have our being.

Jesus always love me


John's 1 John Chapter 1 comment on 8/30/2014, 8:52am...

Once we are saved, positionally we never sin, however, we have an enemy the flesh to fight the good fight of faith. This means we have choices with out condemnation. The confession of our sins is necessary to continue to have fellowship with our Blessed Savior. We will sin! however the more we practice the Word, the more we will overcome! Remember in Ezekiel He says I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to do my Statutes and you shall do my Judgements. For the one that needs deliverance on your addiction. Demand that it go out of your body in Jesus name! He gave us the power and authority over theses sins to leave and be healed James 5th chapter
