And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son – 1 John 5:11
The Testimony of God and the heavenly and earthly witnesses is one that declares Zoë—Divine Life! Any man born of God, carries this Life. Any man who has the Son, has this Life. It is a present reality! Right here! Right now! This is the sure testimony of the reality of the divine life resident in the new kind of man today.
The objective of God’s program of reconciliation was to ultimately save man by giving him Zoë. Romans 5:10 — For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
For we must see, that the plan of salvation could have stopped at redemption; when the blood was shared for the remission of our sins and the purchasing of renegade man from the road of perdition back unto the purposes of God. But NO! Papa God had more in mind. For from the beginning, the grand eternal purpose of God was Christ. To have all men in Him; all men possessing His Life and nature and invigorated by the same power that wrought creation and the re-creation.
Our God is gracious!
