1 John · Exegesis of Light

We belong to God…!

We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. 1 John 4:6

We are of God!….

O glory! Child of God, have you awakened to this yet?

We have heard God call and responded to His Voice in Christ. We have been born again of God… we have tasted of His Grace and constantly feed on His Word; we have received of His Holy Spirit… we have awakened to the Heavenly Father… we are known of God… we know God!

Therefore when the brethren speak, we hear them. There is a kindred spirit in us…an invisible heavenly bond we share with all the brethren born of God. For we are bonded together with the cords of love…we have fellowship with Him and are joint partakers of the tribulations and patience of the kingdom. We have the Holy Spirit…we share the warmth of His power and presence.

We know God…therefore when a brother or sister speaks forth the wisdom of God, we hear him…we connect to the voice of God declared forth. He that is not of God cannot hear us when we speak….because he does not share our bonds.

This is how we know the spirit of truth and that of error. We have placed the written eternal word in our hearts…we have inclined our ears to the Voice of the Holy Spirit…we have His witness brightly lit in us. Therefore we can tell truth form error. We are well exercised in the discernment of right and wrong. 

O Child of God, is this true of you?
