FOR FAMILY MEMBERS ONLY

THIS IS FOR FAMILY MEMBERS EYES AND EARS ONLY, AND NOT FOR PERFECT FAMILIES:

Heart To Heart And Face To Face Here With James R, Winfree Sr.

Speaking Truth From my heart and soul... God Is Love!!!

 

This New Year 2020 & Until We Go Home To Be With Our Lord Jesus Christ, Let Us Keep Each Other And Our Families In Faithful Prayers:

 

( How anyone who say that they love God and are going to heaven, and hate their brothers or sisters or family, who they have seen, But love God who they have Not seen, God and the word of God calls that person or persons a Lier!!!

 

Many religious leaders and people think that the letter of 1 John is about how to know whether or not you have eternal life. Many Pastors and Ministers teach that 1 John contains “Tests of Life” and if you pass these tests, then you can know that you have life.

 

But this is not at all why John wrote this letter. Instead, as if evident from the opening verses, John wrote this letter because He had fellowship with Jesus, and wanted to share this fellowship with others.

 

“Fellowship” is just a biblical word for “Family-ship.” This word also will be covered by my heartfelt message.

 

Fellowship 1 JohnYou can have a relationship with somebody, but not fellowship. For example, First Lady Betty and I raised four children the Biblically way and I taught them myself, Not sending them to others to teach them or do what God commanded me to do...I as the head of our home taught then to always love, honor and respect and be there for family no matter what, and Always Be Their for their mother all the days of her life and there's...Even though I did not see eye to eye with my parents many years back, but I would not let anyone hurt them or not respect them, or my family, even if it cost me my life, ( Believe that!!! )..., I would give my life for our four children, but I just can't at this time respect them and they know why...and even if they can't respect me, that's okay, cause we as parents raised them, not they raised us, I don't follow my children, my children follow me. Period., but they might not call us on the phone or get together for holidays. But we are still your loving God-fearing parents no matter what!!! , God by the Holy Spirit voice commanded me to write this BECAUSE MANY FAMILIES ARE GOING THROUGH THIS VERY SAME THING, BUT NOT SAYING ANYTHING, They do not have, Family-ship fellowship with one another. You are not abiding or remaining with them in an ongoing friendship.

 

So John is writing his letter to Christians, to Christ Believers who are in a relationship with God and with each other, as members of the family of God, and is telling them how to have fellowship with God and with each other. John wants his readers to be friends with God and friends with one another.

 

This also helps us understand 1 John 1:9. Forgiving And Loving One Another Is The Only, Answer!!!

 

So let us take the three keys we have learned and put them all together as we seek to understand 1 John 1:9. Once again, the verse says this:

 

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

 

If you are in a relationship with someone, such as a spouse, a parent, or a child, and you want to maintain a friendship with them, then one of the things you will need to do is regularly own up to the things you have done wrong in that relationship.

 

Similarly, if someone wrongs or hurts you, this pain and betrayal cause a rift between the two of you, so that you probably don’t want to talk to them or hang out with them again. Oh yes, you are still related to them by the bonds of blood or marriage, but you might not want to spend much time in their presence.

 

But that rift, that pain, that sense of betrayal can be healed, right? And how can it be healed? By the other person owning up to what they did wrong, and by agreeing with you that what they said or did was hurtful to you. In other words, they need to confess their sins.

 

It is the same when you have wronged someone else. If you wronged somebody, you can’t just move on in the relationship acting as if nothing happened. The other person was hurt, and they need to know that you are sorry for what you did, and will work to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

 

All of this is also true in our relationship with God. When we sin, God is saddened by our behavior. As a result, our fellowship with God is broken. Just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, when we sin, we often go hide in the bushes because we do not feel like God wants to see us.

 

1 John 1:7The first step in healing this brokenness is by confessing our sin and agreeing with God that what we did was wrong.

 

So while God unconditionally extends forgiveness to all people, and so we are all forgiven for all our sins, if we want to actually experience a release from our bondage to sin, the first step is to agree ( Confess ) with God that we have sinned.

 

If we do this, we will gain release from our slavery to sin, and He will work to cleanse us and purify us from all our unrighteous practices, and in this way, our fellowship with God will develop and grow.

 

So do you want to enter heaven with Christ and be friends with God? One of the things that will help is letting Him point out your sin to you so that you can agree ( Confess ) with Him where you have indeed done wrong. Then, once you agree, let Him further guide you into breaking free from this sin so that you can no longer be addicted and enslaved to it.

 

This is the message of 1 John 1:9. If you agree with God when He points out your sin to you, He is faithful and just and will help release you from this sin, and will help guide you into all the ways of righteousness. This way of living will help you grow in friendship with God and others.

 

Does this help you understand 1 John 1:9 and the role of confession? If you are willing to keep your family in loving forgiving prayers, please leave or add your them and your name or leave your comment below! I Do Love you!!!.
