Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God – 1 John 4:15
Continued from yesterday’s post…
To believe into these truths of the Gospel of Jesus, and lay a hold on them by Grace, is what brings a person to awaken to the Lordship of Jesus. This is what causes a man to speak in agreement with God…to declare with the Father “that this Jesus is both Lord and Christ”. Hallelujah!
It is such speaking- in agreement with the Father- that unleashes power to make void the old man…and birth anew the new creation from the loins of Divinity…and immerse Him in the Holy Spirit! It is such confession that primes the new creation to receive the Holy Spirit…His person replete with power…to have God dwell in Him, and He in God!
This is the mystery of the new birth in Christ.
Adam hears the truth of the gospel of Grace and believes, and confesses in agreement with God the Lordship of Jesus Christ…and is born again: immersed into God and God in Him!
In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the -praise of His glory — Ephesians 1:13,14
