Fellowship : is it with us or God?

Our concept of the understanding of belief is correct. It is the part of what next.

Where we have gone wrong is trying  gain the attributes of Jesus by trying to do them is wrong. We have the understanding of that our lives should follow Jesus as He walked this earth during the New Testament.

What we have to understand is that God came down to live with us in a natural way to tell,and show us in a understanding way that we are to “live” in Him. Just as Jesus Christ “lives” in the Triune fellowship of God. Jesus multiple times in the NT explains to his disciples that He does this in fellowship with the Father. 1John 1:3 -We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship  is with the Father and with his Son,Jesus Christ, We write this to make our joy complete.

I have pondered on this concept of fellowship that in various verses in the bible that it pertains to and I believe that we have been confused by it.    We have used the verses in Hebrews 10:24-25 as our foundation of coming together as a body of Christ, when we have failed to see that we only have fellowship in Him. Let’s look at 1 John 1:3,7. (3) We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard,so that you also may have fellowship with us. and our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son,Jesus Christ.  (7) But if we walk in the light,as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus,his son,purifies us from all sin.

I think that we believe that to be in the light of God that we just come together and fellowship together, when in fact it is the opposite of this.   If we are in the light of God we will be spontaneously having fellowship together.

Our fellowship is not dependent on meeting together with others as it is meeting with Christ which produces fellowship with HIM. We have confused this with the thought “like minds think alike”, as you can attest to in any church this is not even reality.    This is why we have so many differences of opinions and denominations in the world.

If it is our belief that God is who He says He is and we have fellowship with Him everyday, I believe that His church and His bride will soon be coming.
