1John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin, for his seed remains in him. And he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

To paraphrase.1John 3:9 from the original Greek and explain:.'whosoever is born of God does not commit sin.(word 'commit' not in original Greek; John is saying here that for sin to exist, there has to be law that a person has missed the mark of keeping; 'missing the mark' is what the word sin means; the law one missed the mark of keeping was the law extant until Christ came {the non spiritual Mosaic Law with all its rigmarole:.Hebrews 9:10,11}, was crucified and then was resurrected; 1John 4:8 is saying that if one sins, he is of the devil, because since Christ came, it's no longer an age of the law of sin as it was in Old Testament times {1John 3:4; Romans 7:23,25; 8:2}, but rather an age of of grace {2Timothy 1:10} and, to make the way for the expression of the spirit from the heart, law had to go {*} and faith replaced it:.Galatians 3:24,25), because His.(Christ's).seed.(1Peter 1:23).remains.(original is 'abides' as translated in 1John 3:6).in him and one born of God cannot miss the mark.('miss the mark' is original Greek for the word 'sin'), because it is all now dependent on Christ's righteousness and not ours. That is because in Him.(that is, having His same nature of love for others).is no sin':.1John 3:5.

The great apostle Paul had issues with his life:.Romans 7:5-25. He wished he wasn't that way. So, it's the moving from low consciousness where we all miss the mark and to the higher consciousness that is efficacious.

Sins can no longer damage or cut off a relationship with God; that's how much God loves us. Thanks to Christ, these faults are not accounted unto you:.2Corinthians 5:19

If you see sin in you, then you are into a law that makes you think you are a still a sinner and not into His gift of righteousness, which you would have if Christ be in you. In Christ is no sin. Christ in you cannot sin, which means to 'miss the mark', miss the mark that qualifies you for a position in His Kingdom. Get your thinking away from 'if I sin, when I sin, this is sin, that is sin, must be careful not to sin' and into what it means to be in the righteousness of the Infinite One. Otherwise it is devilish thinking:.1John 3:8.

Fill your thoughts with Him when your heart's prior programming begins to focus attention upon your performance to be righteous and off of your performing works of love:.1John 3:3,4 "And every man that has this hope in him purifies himself.(how?), even as He is pure...Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law.(or,.believes.he is transgressing a law:.Romans 4:15; James 4:17); for sin is the transgression of the law."

1John 3:4 is better rendered from the original Greek as:.'Missing this mark.(verse 3).is equal to unrighteousness, because if you miss the mark of purity.(Emmanuel's nature in you), you cannot be righteous without this nature in you.'

-"Antiochus IV, called Epiphanes, 'the illustrious', circa.B.C.E. 215-164, Seleucid king of the Hellenistic.Syrian kingdom during B.C.E. 175-164 the son of Antiochus III.(Antiochus the Great).

He was such 'a vile person', that people called him 'Epimanes' meaning 'madman':.Daniel 11:21-23.

From B.C.E. 171 to 168; he was involved in a war against Egypt, defeating two Egyptian kings, Ptolemy VI and Ptolemy VIII. He captured Jerusalem, prohibited Judaism and tried to establish the worship of Greek gods.(all of them had their many gods way back then)

"Under the leadership of the Jewish priest Mattathias.(died c. B.C.E. 167).and his sons, the Maccabees, the Jews revolted.(B.C.E. 168-160).and drove Antiochus from Jerusalem. Later he won victories over the Armenians and Persians.".comprised with Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia ©, All rights reserved

Antiochus IV Epiphanes, invaded Egypt and was at first successful:.Daniel 11:25,26. The two kings entered into negotiations, though neither of them was sincere in what they agreed to. Their hearts were to do mischief and they 'tell lies at one table':.Daniel 11:27. Then Antiochus returned to his land with great riches and his heart was against anything to do with the true God. His heart was 'against the holy covenant' and he entered Jerusalem and even into the temple sanctuary, taking away the golden altar, the candlestick, the table of shewbread, the censers of gold and the other holy vessels.

He sent an army to Jerusalem with orders to slay all the men and sell the women and children for slaves. This was to a certain extent carried out. The walls were also thrown down and the city pillaged and then set on fire. He then decreed that the Jews should forsake their religion and all should worship the heathen gods. To ensure this at Jerusalem with the few that still clung to the place, an image of Jupiter Olympius was erected in the temple and on an altar sacrifices were offered to this god. This was in B.C.E. 168 on the 25th of the mouth Chisleu, our November. Daniel relates."They shall pollute the sanctuary of strength and shall take away the daily sacrifice and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate.".Daniel 11:31. Compare also Daniel 8:9-12 where the 'little horn' refers to Antiochus Epiphanes. 

Without doubt some of the acts of Antiochus IV Epiphanes are types of the deeds of the future king of the North, referred to in other prophecies as 'the Assyrian'.
