1 John (Program #8) – Conditions of the Divine Fellowship (3)
1 John 1:7 says, “But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from every sin.”
The apostle John made the Christian life very practical in his first epistle when he talked about the conditions of the divine fellowship and today we are continuing to discus the first condition which is that of confessing sins.
1 Peter (Program #3) – The Full Salvation of the Triune God and Its Issues (1)
In the books of 1 & 2 Peter often a single word can add much richness and meaning to what is being said. For example, Peter begins his first epistle by pointing us to the sprinkling of the blood of Jesus. This word sprinkling was surely used to remind the Hebrew believers that he was writing to of how the sprinkling of the blood of goats and sheep that they were familiar with in the Old Testament Jewish religion was simply or merely a type, a foreshadowing of the real eternal offering of the blood of Christ. His was the sprinkling that accomplished far more than the temporary atonement of the sacrifices in the Old Testament. For this sprinkling guarantees our full possession of all the benefits and blessings of the entire new covenant from now and for eternity.
