  1. Misunderstanding 1 John 1:8 and the Gospel

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

    This verse is misunderstood by most due to it being taking it out of context. It is a letter. It must be read in context to the surrounding text and not contradict it or whatever the writer has written elsewhere.
    We will start in the first three verses. Follow along please.
    1 John
    1.That which was from the beginning, which we have heard , which we have seen with our eyes,

  3. The reason for the season; the GOSPEL

    Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of Yahovah (GOD) has risen on you! For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people. But Yahovah shall rise on you, and His glory shall be seen on you. And nations shall walk to the light, and kings to the brightness of your dawning.

  4. Galatians and the Gospel

    Galatians is not speaking about Circumcision though it is mentioned, it is speaking about the Law in general; the Pentateuch and all that is entailed, which would include the Decalogue; the Ten Commandments.

    -
    Gen 50:10 . .When they came to Gorena ha-Atad, which is beyond the Jordan, they held there a very great and solemn lamentation; and he observed a mourning period of seven days for his father.
