Water And Blood

Bible Questions Answered:
“In reading 1 John I see the words “water and blood,” what does this mean?...”
Sheila/ Denver, Colorado U.S.A.

Bible Answer:
Bible Text:

I John 5:6 KJV
This is He that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is The Spirit that beareth witness, because The Spirit is Truth.

The “water,” here referred to is Christ's baptism:

John 1:29-34 NLT
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look! The Lamb Of God who takes away the sin of the world!
30 He is The One I was talking about when I said, ‘A Man is coming after me who is far greater than I am, for He existed long before me.’
31 I did not recognize Him as The Messiah, but I have been baptizing with water so that He might be revealed to Israel.”
32 Then John testified, “I saw The Holy Spirit descending like a dove from heaven and resting upon Him. 33 I didn’t know He was The One, but when God sent me to baptize with water, He told me, ‘The One on whom you see The Spirit descend and rest is The One who will baptize with The Holy Spirit.’
34 I saw this happen to Jesus, so I testify that He is The Chosen One Of God.

Blood” refers to the broken body and spilt atoning blood at Calvary of The Lord Jesus Christ:

I John 5:6 NLT
And Jesus Christ was revealed as God’s Son by His baptism in water and by shedding His blood on the crossnot by water only, but by water and blood. And The Spirit, who is Truth, confirms it with His testimony.

Gnosticism in our Lords day and its teaching:

Gnosticism:... the conviction that matter is evil and that emancipation comes through gnosis (Knowledge).

Gnosis: Knowledge of spiritual things; esp., esoteric, superior spiritual knowledge gained by self-illumination and limited to an elite few, like the Gnostics.
New World Dictionary

Gnosticism was based upon special knowledge. To the Gnostics the material world was evil
so they denied that Jesus Christ was fully human; and so they denied the doctrine of the Incarnation.

Gnostics reasoned, Christ must not be in the flesh (thus no incarnation), for no good thing can come by means of the flesh!

How wrong they were, Christ was both God and Man, incarnated into earthly flesh.

Hebrews 2:14 KJV
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

Saved by The Blood Of Christ:

John 19:34 KJV
But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

Romans 3:25 NLT
For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding His blood..."

Romans 5:9 KJV
Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
Ephesians 1:7 KJV
In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace;
Ephesians 2:13 KJV
But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by The Blood Of Christ.

Colossians 1:14 KJV
In whom we have redemption through His Blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Hebrews 9:12, 14, 22 KJV
Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His Own Blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
14 How much more shall The Blood Of Christ, who through The Eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve The Living God?
22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

I John 1:7 KJV
But if we walk in The Light, as He is in the Light, we have fellowship one with another, and The Blood Of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Revelation 1:5 KJV
And from Jesus Christ, who is The Faithful Witness, and The First Begotten Of The Dead, and
The Prince Of The Kings Of The Earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood,

Revelation 5:9 KJV
And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

I John 5:6 KJV
This is He that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is The Spirit that beareth witness, because The Spirit is Truth.

The Blood was emphasized because Christ was not just some spirit man, He was flesh and blood (earthly body) who had come to be The Father's Sacrificial Lamb, “that takeh away the sins of the world” (John 1:29 KJV).


Spiritual enlightenment, saves no one, only by The Blood Of Christ are we saved!

I Peter 1:18-20 KJV
18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with The Precious Blood Of Christ, as of A Lamb Without Blemish And Without Spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

John 3:16-21 KJV
16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of The Only Begotten Son Of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth The Light, neither cometh to The Light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth Truth cometh to The Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
