People's Bible Notes for 1 John 4:15


1Joh 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God. Confession of Jesus Christ in word and life is declared proof of the indwelling Spirit in 1Jo 4:2. God dwelleth in him, and he in God. Here it is proof of God dwelling in us, which means the same thing.

Discussion for 1 John 4

  • Joan
    We must believe in our hearts that Jesus Christ suffered bleed and died for our sins and must confess it with our mouth than we are saved from our sins. There is one GOD, one FAITH and one Baptism. There is no other god but JESUS. No other God but Jesus can offer eternal life. Jesus died for our sins and we have been bought with a price. If you don't believe just fall on your knees and say Jesus!

    Dont agree with angies comment, they know Jesus came in the flesh as Jesus, but do they know he was and is God himself when he came. Also the other comment about as long as they believe that Jesus came in the flesh is of God no matter thier religious belief. Budda cant believe this and others like him cannot believe what they believe and believe that Jesus is God i strongly disagree.
