Summery of First John

Here is the summary of First John that I came up with. Of course there would be many other ways to summarize but this is my attempt.

Read God's Word to know Him and to live according to what it says. We can't say we have no sin. We should confess our sins and walk in the light. If we sin, Jesus is our advocate. If we love God we will do His will. Walk as Jesus walked and love your brother. Do not consider the fleeting things of the world as being important. God's love leads us to live a righteous life in expectation of Christ's return. Allow the anointing of the Word to lead you in how to love others. Jesus is the answer for our sin. He frees us to love one another. We have assurance that we are from God and as we obey, God answers our prayers. Overcome because Jesus is within us. Those from God confess that Jesus came in the flesh and listen to the Bible. God is love. As we know God we love others. We move into love by confessing; this allows us to abide in Him. The obedience of faith that believes in Jesus brings victory.

De Shazer by Hoyt Watson

Jacob DeShazer flew in a bomber to bomb Tokyo for the first time, in World War 2. They were captured and he spent 40 months in solitary confinement. During this time he was permitted to read a Bible and receive Christ because of the witness of the Word of God. He devoted his life as a missionary to the Japanese after the war. The lead pilot that raided Pearl Harbor also became a Christian from the testimony of Jacob DeShazer and his story is told here.

I outlined First Peter and came up with this summary. If you would like to see the complete outline read it on my website.


Because of the assurance that salvation brings, let the purposes of God be your purposes letting His love flow to others. Therefore reject the worlds ways and accept God's ways, living blameless before the world and proclaim God's excellences.

Submit to those in authority for Christ submitted unto death and we are called to follow in His steps. As we are to obey authority, wives are to obey their husbands. Husbands; treat your wives with understanding. Submit to authority and do good, not fearing but ready to share your hope in Christ knowing His outcome.

Choose to serve even if it brings suffering, be involved in your ministry. Suffering comes to test you, but His glory rests on you, rejoice and glorify God. Suffer according to God's will, entrust your soul to the creator. Because our brothers are willingly suffering for Christ, serve them with gentleness. Be humble, resist Satan in faith and God will complete you.

Who Jesus is in the Gospel of John

I have not used my web page for a year and 1/2. Today I put an old article on it that shows who Jesus is in the Gospel of John.
