“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life:
and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;
but the wrath of God abideth on him.”

1 John 5:12, 13 —
“He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God
hath not life.  These things have I written unto you
that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may
know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe
on the name of the Son of God.”

Ephesians 3: 11, 12
“According to the eternal purpose which he
purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:  In whom we have boldness

love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother
abideth in death.”

— 1 John 3:19 – 21
“And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall
assure our hearts before him.  
For if our heart condemn us, God is
greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.  
Beloved,
if our heart condemn us not, then have
we confidence toward God.”

Hebrews 10: 22 —
“Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith,
having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience,
and our bodies washed with pure water.”

“For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:  And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:  Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.”

— Psalm 4: 3
“But know that the LORD hath
set apart him that is godly for himself:
the LORD will hear when I call unto him.”

Romans 8: 16 —
“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit,
that we are the children of God:”

Romans 8:38, 39
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels,
nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present,
nor things to come, 
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

— 2 Timothy 1:12
“For the which cause I also suffer these things:
nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom
I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that
which I have committed unto him against that day.”

John 5: 24 —
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word,
and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life,
and shall not come into condemnation;
but is passed from death unto life.”

Ephesians 1: 7
“In whom we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;”

— John 10: 27 – 30
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all;
and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
I and my Father are one.”

Ephesians 1: 12 – 14
“That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.”

Philippians 1: 6
“Being confident of this very thing,
that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it
until the day of Jesus Christ:”

Ephesians 2: 8 – 9 —
“For by grace are ye saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

— John 6: 37

and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

John 20: 31 —
“But these are written, that ye might believe that
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing
ye might have life through his name.”

John 6: 39, 40
“And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.  And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”

Acts 2: 21
“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call
on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

— John 1: 12
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power
to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”

1 John 5: 18 —
“We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not;
but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself,
and that wicked one toucheth him not.”

— 1 John 5: 1
“Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God:
and every one that loveth him that begat loveth
him also that is begotten of him.”

Hebrews 6: 17 – 20
Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:  That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:  Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever…”

LESSON 1 — ASSIGNMENT

1.  Memorize I John 5:13 and II Peter 3:18

2.  Read the Gospel of John, chapters 1-7, by reading one chapter a day. Please note the times that you find any form of the word “believe.” Please record this information [on a separate note pad since you can’t really write on the blog page].

3.  List at least three promises that were a blessing to you from your reading of John 1–7. Record [on a separate note pad again].

4.  List one truth that you received during your reading each day that was a blessing to you that day. Record this [on a separate note pad again].

Separate your Notes into 3 parts:

1. Promises I have found in the first seven chapters of John that were a real blessing to me. (List at least three)

a.  ________________________

b.  ________________________

c.  ________________________

2.  Truths I received from my daily reading of John 1–7 that I applied to my life that day:
