Hello and welcome back to Aglow Blog ✌️. Today’s nugget is sweet, let’s dive right in 🤗…
“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”
1 John 5:13 KJV
In the verse above, the Apostle John says, “I want you to know that you have eternal life.” This simply lets us know that as Christians, we’re not mere humans, it is not a lie, it is not a myth, it is not even a figure of speech, it is a fact. I love the way the Amplified translation puts it ;
“These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God [which represents all that Jesus Christ is and does], so that you will know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that you [already] have eternal life.”
1 John 5:13 AMP
It is so important that you believe, accept and understand this, because until and unless you know that
you’re not a mere human being, you’re going to be subject to what
human beings are subject to: the corrupting influences of this present
The Bible says in 2 Peter 1:4 that we’ve escaped the corruption that’s in the world through lust, being associates of the God-kind.
Something indeed happened when you were born again; you were
actually reborn. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in
Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all
things are become new.” This isn’t a cliché! To be in Christ means you’re
born into Christ; baptized into Christ (Galatians 3:27). This means you’re
immersed into Him and have become one with Him. Now that you’re in Christ, you’re a different specie of being, you have the life and nature of God.
And according to the Bible, you don’t
have two natures; your old nature was crucified with Christ (Romans 6:6).
You have another life, the resurrection life, inside you now. Hallelujah 🙌.
James 1:18 says, “Of his own will begat he us with the word of
truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.” The
underlined portion indicates that you’re another kind of man—the
“Godkind” of man. Being born again, you were brought, not only into a
knowledge of Christ but also into a union with Him that has made you an
associate of the heavenly pantheon.
No wonder Jesus said in John
10:34 (NKJV), “…Is it not written in your law, I said, You are gods?” Glory
It is a good thing to know this beautiful truth, it is a wonderful thing to live and walk in the consciousness of this truth. Child of God, as He is, so are we in this world. It is not pride, it is knowing our identity, we are not ordinary 😎.
I love you ❤️
