Four Mysterious Matters in 1 John 1:1-3 (Abiding in the Lord to Enjoy His Life, by Witness Lee)

1 John 1:1-3 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we beheld and our hands handled, concerning the Word of life, (And the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and report to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us); That which we have seen and heard we report also to you that you also may have fellowship with us, and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.

1 John 1:1-3 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we beheld and our hands handled, concerning the Word of life, (And the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and report to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us); That which we have seen and heard we report also to you that you also may have fellowship with us, and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.

Four Mysterious Matters. Let us first consider the main points of the Scripture verses cited in this message. In the first passage, 1 John 1:1-3, are three very precious verses. They are precious because they refer to four mysterious matters, all of which are divine. These four divine, mysterious matters are
1) the Word of life,
2) the life having been manifested,
3) the eternal life being reported to the believers, and
4) the believers having fellowship with the apostles and the apostles’ fellowship being the fellowship with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.
The life here is the divine, eternal life, which is a mystery. Then this eternal life produces another mystery, that is, the mystery of the fellowship of the divine life. Therefore, the mysterious fellowship of the eternal life is the subject of this Epistle of John. (Abiding in the Lord to Enjoy His Life, by Witness Lee)
