          Beloveds, we must clear up the lie that when the Lord told Joshua he would have good success through obeying the Law, that this was meant for Christians today. The Lord told this to Joshua that in obeying the Old Covenant of the Law God would give him success in conquering certain lands and taking these lands for the nation of Israel: Joshua 1: 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
          
          
          
          Also in keeping the Old Covenant of the Law, (which is all they had from God), he would not face the wrath of God and die as Aaron and Moses did for their disobedience to God in not keeping the Old Covenant of the Law: Num. 27: 12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered. 14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
          
          Moses never preached that the Old Covenant of the Law would make anyone permanently righteous in the sight of God. Here is the truth, preached by our Saviour Jesus Christ: Jhn 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
          
           Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.
          
          See Galatians 3, which explains God’s purposes for the Law; and how Jesus Christ has delivered us from it for all time. Feel free to study on your own the numerous verses that fully declare that Jesus Christ is the eternal Saviour and final sole source of eternal salvation for all time for all who believe in Him. See John 14:6.

          

          Anyone willfully claiming salvation based on keeping the Old Covenant of the Law and/ or combining it with the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, or anything else is not considered a Christian according to the Bible.

          
          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.

          
          Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the CURSE: for it is written, CURSED is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

          1Ti. 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
          7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

          1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

          John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    1 JOHN 1:9 STUDY

    NO SALVATION WITHOUT FAITH IN THE REAL JESUS CHRIST

    Brothers and sisters, there are those who believe Jesus Christ paid for past sins but want to know where is the biblical evidence that Jesus Christ also paid for present and future sins? These questions arise due to failure to understand the scriptures and the power of God.

    However, without condemnation for asking, the Bible easily provides the biblical evidence. We know, dearly beloveds, that God established the pattern for the atonement, a shadow of it is given under the law, once yearly an atonement had to be made for the sins of all the people of Israel:

    Lev 16:7

    And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

     Lev 16:8  And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat.

    Lev 16:9 And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD'S lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.

    Lev 16:10 But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.

    Lev 16:21

    And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:

    Lev 16:22 And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

    Aaron and all of the high priests to follow were just mere men, the only sins they could place on the scapegoat were the ones they knew the people had committed in the past. they had no power or way to know or see into the future what sins the people might commit. This is why it was necessary to repeat the atonement yearly, in addition to the fact that the body and blood of the sacrifice rotted away the same day losing its effectiveness, and the forgiveness it had previously obtained. 

    Holy brethren, we know from scripture that when God offered up His perfect Sinless Son Jesus Christ, He met God’s standard for being both the perfect sinless sacrifice in His earthly life and death AND the perfect sinless live scapegoat in His resurrection. Unlike the sacrifices under the Law, the body and blood of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice is incorruptible and forever retains its power to effectuate permanent forgiveness for all who believe in Him and has no expiration date.

    This is why the believer who has confessed unto salvation need not afterward find it necessary or commanded of God  to continually come to God to confess sins seeking any further forgiveness of sins, it is finished. Also it is impossible for any believer to be separated from God by any means or ways whatsoever: Heb 13:5;  Rom 8:35-39.

    GOD IS OMNISCIENT, OMNIPOTENT AND OMNIPRESENT, unlike mere men, God knows ALL the sins committed by each and every person in the whole world, past, present, and future, ( Heb 4:13)

    Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

    Therefore, God placed the sins of the whole world past, present and future (not just the sins of the nation of Israel) on Jesus Christ who took the punishment of all of our sins, past, present and future in His death,  and forever destroyed them in His resurrection as though they had never happened:

    Rom 4:7

    Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

    Rom 4:8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.  

     

    1Jo 2:12 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.

    Let us again remember, brethren, although there was a once-a-year sacrifice of atonement under the law for the people of Israel as a whole, its effectiveness lasted only a day because animal blood corrupted or decayed away, and was no longer acceptable to God.

    The atonement gained through the sacrifice of the body and blood of Jesus Christ in His New Testament, brought in and ratified at His death is not temporary like that under the law, the incorruptible body and blood of Jesus Christ obtains permanent forgiveness forever, to all who will believe on Him.

     

    Furthermore, God appointed Lord Jesus Christ as the Eternal Saviour, Lord, High Priest, and Head of the church; He guards it, establishes its order, and oversees the proper function and service of His priests under Him. Unlike the sinful high priest/priests of the Old Covenant of the Law, Jesus Christ never had to confess His own sin, because He never had any sin. Of Jesus Christ the scriptures declare:

    2Cr. 5:21:  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

    1Pe. 2:22:  Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

    1Jo. 3:5:  And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin

     

    1 John 1:9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 

    When we know the truth, we should turn from error and not be like those who reject the truth Those who do so, still willfully acknowledge themselves as sinners, who must continually offer their confession of their sins and beg Jesus Christ to shed His sinless one- time blood sacrifice to gain forgiveness for them over and over again. Instead of the fellowship and full joy promised by 1John 1:4, they are plunged into a false gospel, a toxic message of deadly self- deception. 

     

    Having placed themselves under relentless bad news; they experience works for rest, condemnation instead of joy, and in misery they are neither saved nor safe, never washed, and never cleansed. Willfully blindly, such persons pray to an obscure false saviour of their own imagination, from whom forgiveness of sin is won and lost with no hope to attainment of permanency. Such persons continually moan, wring their hands, scream how utterly unworthy they are, beg, cry, sob, and crawl towards an imaginary false altar continually, with various sins to lie upon it.

     

    Living in abject shame, condemnation, and misery of their own willful making, they continually offer up their own ineffectual offerings of "confessions" to get forgiven of their sins over and over again, through a false saviour of their own imaginings and not the true. They experience a short- lived comfort-until the next sin, to begin the unending cycle of horrific futility over and over again.  Such persons cannot know the joy of full assurance declared by John.

    This also shows a horrific and complete rejection of both the Old Covenant of the Law and the New Covenant of Grace as well, since it is clear that in both Covenants confession alone is never accepted as God absolutely commands that it must be accompanied by an unblemished blood sacrifice of atonement administered through the high priest/mediator.

     

    Even more horrific is the willful rejection of those who refuse to believe, recognize, and accept the superiority of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ which does insult and despite to God, the Holy Spirit and the Lord Jesus Christ, whose sinless blood washes every believer from all their sins and gives them permanent forgiveness for ever.

    Jhn 3:36

    He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

     

    Note: — Suffering with Christ. We must be ready to suffer at times because we cling to our faith in Jesus. God does not punish us, but evil persons do [including the Devil and his angels]. When we are hurt in this way, it is as though we suffer with Jesus. We suffer with him because we are his friends. God will bless us for this, and [in due time] he will punish the wicked.

    1 JOHN 1 STUDY

    NO SALVATION WITHOUT FAITH IN THE REAL JESUS CHRIST

    1 John 1:10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    10. that we have not sinned, This is not the same as ‘that we have no sin’,  I.e. being born absolutely without sin and remaining in an eternally sinless state, therefore having no need of salvation as in 1 John 1:8.  ‘have not sinned’ here in 1 John 1:10 is falsely claiming we have absolutely never committed any sin therefore have no need of forgiveness.

    We make Him a liar, we falsely blasphemously claim that God is a liar who cleverly crafted a lie in making a plan of salvation to induce men who have done no wrong to feel needlessly guilty and badly of themselves.

    His word is (absolutely) not in us, In John, denotes the essential Word of God, Jesus Christ, the personal wisdom and power in union with God, his minister in creation and government of the universe, the cause of all the world's life both physical and ethical, is absolutely not in anyone who has the gall to call God a liar, knowing it is impossible for God to lie and that He has declared all men guilty of sin and in need of the salvation of Jesus Christ.

     

    Brothers and sisters, the apostle John makes it clear, again and again, Christ’s forgiveness has no expiration date, is complete, permanent, final, and finished, once for all. Christ’s forgiveness is the eternal termination of the wrath of God against sin; it is the eternal release from the guilt of sin which oppresses the conscience, and the eternal remission of the punishment of sin, which is eternal death.

    In Christ’s justification of all believers, then, all of our sins past present and future are forgiven permanently; and the guilt and punishment thereof permanently removed.

    Our loving relationship with God leads us to follow him in willing obedience and service. Again and again, it is essential to understand absolutely that we cannot obtain any further forgiveness after salvation is received, seeing that our pardon is permanent through the atoning work of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    The issue of God’s forgiveness via atonement through Jesus for all believers is once and for all settled for all eternity, it is finished. God has not left us on our own, holy people, nor are we “saved sinners”. The penitent sinner is not just forgiven and left to flounder alone. Nor is he or she an old man dusted off and cleaned up outwardly with a somewhat improved old nature; no, he or she is regenerated, made a completely new creature, indwelt by God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit made a child of the Living God.

    John tells us over and over in a multitude of ways throughout His word that Christians are not given a license to sin but made free from the bondage of sin to serve God and one another in love, and gratitude for what God’s Son has done for us.

     

    Going forward as permanently forgiven peoples, dearly beloveds, we will look into the remaining questions:

    How does the Bible instruct the Christian to live and does the Christian have two natures or a combination of the sinful old man or carnal nature melded with the new nature?

    I know I have sinned or done wrong after I was saved what do I do about that and why do I still do it at times?

    1 JOHN 1:9 STUDY

    NO SALVATION WITHOUT FAITH IN THE REAL JESUS CHRIST

    Brothers and sisters, at one time we were all ignorant in some way in the comprehensive gospel message of the gospel or New Covenant of Lord Jesus Christ, but we are forbidden to remain that way, thank God He ensures that we cannot and will not remain that way.

    Awhile back I spoke with a man who had been preaching many years and had a large church who decried the sinless blood of the atonement as gory and barbaric, and felt that it was error to teach or believe anything regarding it. It was my pleasure to show him the scriptures regarding the atonement of Jesus Christ and the eternal truth that all who willingly rejected it are still sinners dead in sin, doomed for hell at the physical death of the body. His eyes were opened after reading the scriptures and He confessed and believed on Jesus Christ’s eternal work of atonement in the sacrifice of His SINLESS body AND SINLESS BLOOD and was saved.

     

    My fellow citizens of the kingdom of heaven, and ambassadors of Jesus Christ who has ordained us to take His message to the world, we have our brother the apostle John here speaking again and again in absolutes regarding the comprehensive gospel message of Jesus Christ.

    Therefore, dearly beloveds, let us continue to look at 1 John 1 in a biblical comprehensive absolute way as all scripture, and not as a bunch of standalone verses which God does not intend it to ever be.

    As posed earlier: Why does the failure to understand the atoning work of Jesus Christ due to ignorance leads people trying to deal with sin in error back to either works and/or the Mosaic Law both done away in Jesus Christ?

    The reasons are: the persons in ignorance have failed to understand the power of God wrought through His Son Jesus Christ and sees the Bible not as comprehensive, but only as jumbled verses which one may sincerely and freely cobble together to make doctrines in which one believes that they are serving God, not understanding that this is vain worship. Regardless of how sincere the persons may be they are still sincerely wrong.

    Raise your hand if you have ever been in biblical ignorance, I raised mine. Thank God who delivers us from ignorance through the truth of scriptures, correctly taught and interpreted by faithful brothers and sisters everywhere, without condemnation to those being taught.

     

    The ability to travel through time, whether it is to fix a mistake in the past or gain insight into the future, has long been embraced by science fiction and debated by theoretical astrophysicists. NASA scientists believe it will never be possible, although some in the U.K believe it is possible to build a time machine, and one of its scientists claims to have created a theoretical working model.

     

    If we glibly accept the opinions of worldly scientists about the possibility of time travel, or altering time in some way, how much more, holy people, should we turn to the Bible where it teaches the everlasting absolute truth that God for His purposes not only created time, He alone by His power can alter it as well according to His sovereign will:  Dan 2:21

    And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

    God, again, holy brethren created time and God will end time:  Rev 10:6

    And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

    We know that God is not subject to time, but to save as many as will believe on His Son Jesus Christ has subjected all mankind, each to their allotted time, to hear the gospel message and believe on His Son Jesus Christ and be saved, or to reject the Son and be lost forever.

    Most of us know that it is extremely important to understand that God did not create time for mankind only for the sole purpose of marking anniversaries, important events, birthdays, time to work or play or certain milestones, etc. God commands us to stay focused on God’s big picture.

     

    Let us remind everyone that the gospel did not come from the east or the west, but God sent it down from heaven with the Holy Spirit through the atonement of Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    Jesus Christ by the power of His atoning work thoroughly overcomes time and permanently cleanses/takes away all sins and forgives all those who believe in Him, leaving the saved in their allotted time to share in bringing the gospel message, and living out their faith as an example to the world, as a new creature in indwelt by Him, God and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ destroys the root cause of sin, which is the sin nature itself: Rom 6:6

    Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

    There will be more on this later. Now some who like to argue in error that the atonement only covered past sins and we still have to confess any future sins afterwards to keep being forgiven and in fellowship with God use these verses:  Pro 28:13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. This is of the Law done away in Christ. All Christians are under grace not Law and God forbids any mixing of the two. Eph 2:15

    Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

     

     Rom 3:25

    Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

    However, God within the context of the whole of scripture from the Old Testament to the New Testament declares: Jer 31:34

    And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

    Heb 8:12

    For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

     Heb 10:17

    And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

     

    Col 2:13

    And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

    Those whom God has forgiven who believe in His Son Jesus Christ are greatly assured that being a sinner is a thing of the past. There are no works whatsoever that can take away sins other than the atoning work of Jesus Christ, He paid it all permanently and forever finished it for whomsoever will believe in Him.

    Any who impenitently reject the whole truth of the atonement of Jesus Christ are still dead in their sins, for they are calling God a liar, knowing it is impossible for God to lie: Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:3

    For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

    1 JOHN 1 STUDY

    NO SALVATION WITHOUT FAITH IN THE REAL JESUS CHRIST

    Brothers and sisters, all over the world countries have established standards that foreigners seeking citizenship must meet to gain legal citizenship by agreeing to its laws and abiding by the same in order to enjoy the rights and benefits thereof.

    Whether one agrees or not, dearly beloveds, most countries have established laws where those caught entering in or who have entered illegally will be deported. Proponents of “open borders” find most countries do not open to discussion of changing their laws to permit any such thing. We know all too well, holy people, that through warfare that the conquerors breech national boundaries and can and do change a nation’s standards and laws by brute force.

     

    Brothers and sisters, we want to continue to look at 1 John 1:9 in a biblical comprehensive way as all scripture, and not as a standalone verse which God does not intend it to ever be.

    1 John 1:9 unequivocally can never be interpreted to mean that Christians remain sinners after salvation who must continually confess to God their sins each and every time, they sin to get Him to forgive them and restore them to fellowship with Him as some are teaching, whether in ignorance or willfully it is still damaging to those seeking to be saved. As many say the righteous will receive the truth but the wicked never will.

     

    No one but God, holy people, sets the standard for admission into His eternal unconquerable unchanging kingdom which is solely through faith in Jesus Christ His Son and sole appointed saviour, whose atoning work is complete, finished for all eternity. This is the nonnegotiable inerrant and eternal truth of God, and all who believe in His Son Jesus Christ are thoroughly/completely washed from all sins in His sinless blood forever. God receives none into His kingdom who refuse to believe that Christ’s work of atonement is finished for all time.

    The Bible clearly teaches:   AMP Heb 10: 14For by the one offering He has perfected forever and completely cleansed those who are being sanctified [bringing each believer to spiritual completion and maturity]. 15And the Holy Spirit also adds His testimony to us [in confirmation of this]; for after having said,

    16“THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM

    AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD:

    I WILL IMPRINT MY LAWS UPON THEIR HEART,

    AND ON THEIR MIND I WILL INSCRIBE THEM [producing an inward change],”

    He then says,

    17“AND THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS ACTS

    I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE [no longer holding their sins against them].” 18Now where there is [absolute] forgiveness and complete cancellation of the penalty of these things, there is no longer any offering [to be made to atone] for sin.

    KJV  Heb 10:18

    Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

    No more: absolutely no more offering for sin.

     

    Scripture interprets scripture, backs up and validates scripture: 1Jo 1:9

    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    This verse can only be rightly interpreted as declaring the same thing as

    1Jo 4:15

    Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

    Rom 10:9

    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

     Rom 10:10

    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made 

    For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

    It is gross error for anyone to unrepentantly interpret 1John 1:9 to mean that all Christians after salvation are still sinners needing to confess sins unto God over and over to keep forgiven and not lose fellowship with God. The Bible declares regarding those who impenitently reject the atoning work of Christ: Heb 10:29

    Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

    Again, let us not forget what the apostle John has declared:  1Jo 5:18

    We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

     

    We have to bring forth the whole gospel message of the gospel of Jesus Christ; it is absolutely not a polite discussion between equals, as God has no mere human equals, and receives no one who chooses to reject His Son Jesus Christ.

     

    Next, dearly beloveds, (I’m rephrasing an earlier question to be in relation to ignorance rather than impenitency); we will look at how the failure to understand the atoning work of Jesus Christ due to ignorance leads people trying to deal with sin in error back to either works and/or the Mosaic Law both done away in Jesus Christ. These people may be sincere, but they are still sincerely wrong. We have much more to say regarding sin within the comprehensive context of the New Covenant of Jesus Christ.

    Love, serola

    1 JOHN 1 STUDY

    NO SALVATION WITHOUT FAITH IN THE REAL JESUS CHRIST

     Brothers and sisters, John speaks clearly in biblical absolutes, without apology. John keeps hammering away and expounding on His message, he states explicitly the Gospel of Jesus Christ is non-negotiable, exclusive, explicit, exhaustive, incorruptible, uncompromising, inerrant, final, finished, complete, eternal absolute standard, and unchanging truth without exception and absolutely no options.

    Questions; does 1 John 1: 9 teach that people apart from the atoning work of Jesus Christ can perform any work to get each sin they commit forgiven by God, since the Bible clearly states that through Jesus Christ alone all of sins are eternally forgiven for everyone who believes in Him?

    Dearly beloveds, we have to answer with another question: What kind of Lamb is the Christ? Hey wait a minute! Alright now! Some might think this is an uncalled for out of line question, yet it is not.

     

    We must always be careful to preach the whole counsel of God, the whole truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ according to His new covenant of grace.  See, understand, comprehend, if anyone believes/likens in error or intentionally that Jesus Christ, the Holy Lamb of God is the same type of sacrificial animal lamb offered up by the high priest of the Law for the yearly atonement (whose effectiveness lasted only a day) for the nation of Israel, then they will also believe in error or willfully that Jesus Christ the perfect sacrificial Lamb of God’s blood is the same as that of the animal blood sacrificed under the Law that corrupted after it was shed and over time lost its effectiveness and the forgiveness it had once obtained. This is why these kinds of sacrifices had to be repeated yearly:

     

    The blood of Jesus Christ the Holy Lamb of God is absolutely not like the blood of mere animals which were sacrificed under the Law of Moses. The  blood of Jesus Christ which is sinless, is incorruptible, forever retaining His cleansing power to take away/totally demolish all sins and obtains forgiveness for all who believe in Him. (See Heb 10:10-23).

     

    Those who reject the truth, will also in error see and believe that God’s forgiveness of our sins is temporary too just like it is under the Law. They will continually in error keep making confessions each time they sin to get God to forgive them over and over again for each and every time they sin. All their confessions are totally in vain, worthless and gain nothing from God but condemnation. 

     

    All such, whether on purpose or ignorantly have made a covenant with death are still unsaved, still dead in their sins, having believed and put their faith in the wrong lamb that is under the law, rather than Jesus Christ the perfect Lamb of God under His New Covenant.

    These people are filled with vain works, ritual confessions, fearful anxious sin counters, trying to keep short accounts of their sins lest they die with unconfessed sins and be lost. They vainly try to justify their ritual confessions by perverting intentionally or in ignorance this verse to falsely mean that we are still sinners after salvation, needing to continually confess our sins to get God to forgive us and allow us back in fellowship with Him: 1Jo 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 

     

    It is no wonder, brethren, that those who follow this error do not find the joy or fellowship that John intends for God’s people to have.

    John himself, holy people, lays forever to rest the lie that John 1:9 means people are compelled by God to continually confess all their sins each and every time they sin to get God to forgive and bring them back in fellowship with Him: . For this reason, John wrote in full knowledge, confidence, and assurance to all of God’s people:  1Jo 3:6 - Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. 1Jo 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 

    1Jo 3:9 - Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 

    1Jo 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. 1Jo 5:18 - We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. (SeeHeb 10:10-23).

    This is not about being easy on sin, if anything, holy people, it brings down the hammer on anyone claiming Christ, whose lives are characterized by a life of sin. Next we will look at the only correct biblical interpretation of 1 John 1;9 which is the only one that counts with God.

    1 JOHN 1 STUDY

    NO SALVATION WITHOUT FAITH IN THE REAL JESUS CHRIST

     

    1John 1:8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

    Brothers and sisters, most of us know that 1 JOHN 1: 8 IS not a standalone verse from which some in error believes contradicts the atoning work of Christ, NO, instead it confirms the atoning work of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

     

    The correct interpretation of 1 John 1:8 is that if any mere human being claims that they absolutely NEVER had any sin meaning in the sense of being born and remaining in an eternal sinless state, therefore having no need of salvation, all such persons are lying to themselves and are absolutely devoid of the truth. Jesus Christ is the only sinless person who ever lived. Therefore, only the atoning work of Jesus Christ will cleanse all who believe in Him from all sins forever.

     

    Brothers and sisters, certainly many of us have read or heard from some who have been witnessed to who bristle at the idea of seeing themselves as being born having a sin nature. More than a few resists and turn their backs on salvation because they see it as faulty, archaic, and harmful teachings that make people feel needless guilt, as they believe there is no such thing as sin or having a sin nature needing forgiveness in the first place.

     

    Holy people, this is God’s firm warning that all false teachings and erroneous personal opinions that contradict scripture have no power to nullify the word of God. Those who die impenitently believing they were born sinless with no need for salvation will have no excuse before God:    Rev 21:8

    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

    1 John 1 is meant, and even the entirety of scriptures to be understood in a comprehensive way. God absolutely forbids anyone to see scripture as just a series of standalone verses, from which one can concoct false doctrines that contract the infallible inerrant truth of scripture. Again, holy brethren, all those who reject the atoning work of Jesus Christ, because they in self-deception believe that they never had and never will have any sin in them, are still dead in their sins.

     

    The study will continue, and I know there are some amongst us who have come to believe the inerrant truth that our Lord and Saviour did not cleanse us from some sins but all sins, but have questions about the meaning of 1 John 1: 9. I will give the answers based on the comprehensive Bible teachings regarding 1 John 1: 9 within the only acceptable standard of God as set in the gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    Questions; does 1 John 1: 9 teach that people apart from the atoning work of Jesus Christ can perform any work to get each sin they commit forgiven by God, since the Bible clearly states that through Jesus Christ alone all of sins are eternally forgiven for everyone who believes in Him?

     

    Why does the failure to accept or believe the inerrant infallible scriptures and the power of the atoning work of Jesus Christ lead people in error back to the Mosaic Law done away in Jesus Christ?

     

    How does the Bible instruct the Christian to live and does the Christian have two natures or a combination of the sinful old man or carnal nature melded with the new nature?


    I know I have sinned or done wrong after I was saved what do I do about that and why do I still do it at times?

    1 JOHN 1 STUDY

    NO SALVATION WITHOUT FAITH IN THE REAL JESUS CHRIST

     

    Brothers and sisters, some might in error believe that the Bible teaching that the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from All sins, is contradicted by 1 John 1: 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

    God, holy people, is absolutely not the author of confusion and the scriptures do not contradict themselves, for the word of God backs up the word of God and eternally, infallibly validates and proves the word of God as we shall see in the word and by the word:   2Co 1:20

    For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

     

    First of all, dearly beloveds,  if 1 John 1:8  is interpreted to mean that all saved people remain sinners and still practice sinning after salvation, this grievous error is entirely corrected and put to rest as John himself goes on to further confirm the eternal state of all who are saved through faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ, Lord and Saviour:  1Jo 3:8

    He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

    1Jo 3:9

    Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

    1Jo 5:18

    We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

    …and the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from All sins

    Heb 8:12

    For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

    Heb 10:17

    And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

    The true Christian does not practice sinning or make it a lifestyle, more on this later within the inerrant explicit, exhaustive teachings of the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, and what might be shocking details on the flesh or carnal nature.

    Next the ONLY correct biblical interpretation of 1 John 1:8.
