Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 11 [Grace, (the Spirit, the Light), is given to every man so that he might heed its gentle and anonymous appearance and call to repent of his evil ways for God would have all men to be saved.]

      For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, [To access the purifying power of grace, one must wait on God, listen, watch, and obey what you hear. By grace through inward faith the Spirit charges us to deny ungodliness and lusts, teaching us how to live righteously and godly in this world. As we obey, grace then removes the sins from our heart. Salvation is brought to those who heed and obey Him as they persistently and patiently wait on Him. Heb 5:9, 9:28.]

 12 Teaching us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, and how to live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; [Grace is in the heart of every man, waiting for a man to turn inward to be taught and changed to become righteous, pure, and holy. A "believer" who dies still sinning is defiled and banned from heaven; grace is not an excuse to bypass judgment or Hell for him; every man is judged by his words and works.]

 13 As we receive the blessed fulfillment of our hope, even the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ, [The great God, the Father, and our Savior, Jesus Christ, are revealed as they come and make their home in the hearts of who love and obey Jesus. John 14:23. From the Word of the Lord within: "The second coming is a personal experience. The second coming is in the hearts of purified believers."]

 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity [lawless deeds, sin], and purify for himself a people who are his very own, zealous for good works.1 [Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh [the sinful nature] with its passions and desires [lusts and affections], Gal 5:24, to become pure. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27. From the Word of the Lord within: "If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me."]

 13 For if you live according to the flesh [the sinful nature], you will die; but if through the Spirit you mortify [put to death] the deeds of the body, you will live.4 [Therefore mortify [put to death] the deeds of the body which are of the earthly life; fornication, impurity, inordinate affections, evil lusts of the flesh, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Col 3:5. Strip yourselves of your former nature that controlled your conduct, which corrupts itself through lusts and desires that spring from delusion. Eph 4:22]

 11 In whom you are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision performed by Christ.2 [Christ is the anointing, which teaches you all things and which circumcises your heart, cutting off the foreskin of sin and selfishness to become an inward Jew, inwardly circumcised.]

 7 But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship [in the Spirit] with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin.3 [To walk in the light is to be guided by God, (who is light), in what to say and do. All men sit in darkness and walk in darkness until the light arises in their hearts. From the Word of the Lord within: "Light comes from faith in the voice." You can be walking in the light and in fellowship, and then through lack of watchfulness have an unintentional slip; but that can be forgiven and cleansed.]

 8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy [in us] the works [sin] of the devil.4 [Let no man deceive you, saying that you can still be sinning and belong to God; those still sinning serve the devil. Christ is revealed in our flesh to destroy the works of the devil, by condemning the secret sins in our heart, and then destroying even our desire to sin. Paul confirms Jesus destroying the works of the devil in each purified believer: "the God of peace shall crush Satan under your feet shortly." Rom 16:20.]
