Today we share the final installment of our journey through the soundless depths of the truth writ in the first Epistle of St. John the Divine. We trust that you have received Grace that always comes with the revelation of Christ in the light of His Word.
Thank you for your readership 🙂 … May God’s Grace continue to be stronger in you…for you…and through you.
And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life – 1 John 5:20 (NKJV)
(continued from Part one yesterday)….
What does this mean for us?
I say this means the employment of the reasoning faculties in the communication of divine realities. I say this means the participation of reason…reason, not blinded by carnality…Nay! Reason: Reason enlightened by Heavens Light!
Let us remember that it was God who made the invitation when He said “…come let us reason together” [Isaiah 1:18]. It was the Lord also who said “that the man from whose heart the seed of God’s Word was snatched was the man who lacked understanding…” [Matthew 13:19]—Selah. And then let us remember that poignant, persuasive request of the Apostle when he said “…that the eyes of their understanding being enlightened…” [Ephesians 1:18]. Glory to God!
Dear Holy Spirit let this be the generation that apprehends this truth and makes it tangible to your Glory…in the name of Jesus!
That we who are found in Him that is true, shall know Him that is true…and propelled by the force of the revelations apprehended, let us in all sincerity and understanding bend all our abilities to serve the execution of the divine agenda today.
God is our Helper!
