He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life – 1 John 5:12
Glory to God!
continuing from our study of 1 John 5:11 yesterday…
The objective has always been to lift man up into the Life of God…into the arena of fellowship with the divine mind, purpose and life….to lift man into that place where he is filled with all the light in God and fully saturated with all the ability, knowledge, wisdom, Grace and privileges of Deity. To wit, that man be found in Christ, and partake fully of the Life and nature of God.
This fulfillment of the grand eternal objective has already started with us…the first fruits in the first born… “who are to the praise of His Glory because we first trusted in God”—[Ephesians 1:12 paraphrased]
Therefore, let us receive the testimony of God.
For today we know that the Life of God resides in the Over-comer…even the new creation. We know that as many as have received Him, to them He gave power to become the Sons of God…born with His Life and living witnesses to the fulfillment of the plans and purposes of God for our generation. Selah…
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.-1 John 5:13
