1 John 1:5 NASB … This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.

From NetBible 1Jn 1:5

  • 3 Claims: 1 John 6, 8, 10 NASB
    • 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth
    • 8 If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.
    • 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.
  • 3 Counter Claims: 1 John 7, 9, 2:1 NASB
    • 7 but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin
    • 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 
    • 2:1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.

James 1:17 AMPC … Every good gift and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].

… who does not change like shifting shadows. NIV
… with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. NASB
… Unlike them[the heavenly lights], He never changes or casts shifting shadows. NLT
… with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. NRSV
… with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. NKJV

Revelation 21:22-23 Amplified Bible (AMP)
22 I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty [the Omnipotent, the Ruler of all] and the Lamb are its temple. 23 And the city has no need of the sun nor of the moon to give light to it, for the glory (splendor, radiance) of God has illumined it, and the Lamb is its lamp and light. 24 The nations [the redeemed people from the earth] will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring into it their glory. 25 By day (for there will be no night there) its gates will never be closed [in fear of evil]; 26 and they will bring the glory (splendor, majesty) and the honor of the nations into it; 27 and nothing that defiles or profanes or is unwashed will ever enter it, nor anyone who practices abominations [detestable, morally repugnant things] and lying, but only those [will be admitted] whose names have been written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Remember the Good Way

October 4, 2019

Jeremiah 6:16This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls”. But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’

And walk in it! –

Follow Him even if nobody else does!
Jesus IS the ONLY good WAY, TRUTH and LIFE!
Jn 14:6

There is a way that seems right to a person,  but its end is the way that leads to death. Pro 14:12, 16:25
For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction and many enter through it
Enter through the narrow gate –
Jn 10:7
Narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Remember the “Good” Way is narrow! –Mt 7:13-14

And not stumble.
