No one born of God sins (1 John 3:9 )
9 Those who have been born of God do not sin, because God’s abides in them; they cannot sin, because they have been born of God.
GOD SAYS WE WERE FEARFULLY AND WONDROUSLY MADE IN HIS IMAGE. God breathed His Life into us and gave us His heartbeat,
Born of God.
SIN IS NOT SEEING AND KNOWING GOD. . . AND NOT SEEING AND KNOWING WE ARE GOD’S VERY OWN!
Jesus comes along and boasts quite dramatically that, ( 1 ) all human sins are, at their root, a sin against Himself ( Mk 2:1-12; Lk 7:36-50 ), THEY ARE UNABLE . . . [(HEBREW)verbs raʿah ("to see"), and yadaʿ ("to know") ]
WHY ? BECAUSE JESUS SAYS WE LOVE THE darkness MORE THAN THE LIGHT!
IF ADAM AND EVE (AND EVEN US TODAY) WOULD LOVE GOD BY THE HIS VERY LIFE AND LOVE HE GAVE US. . . WE COULD NEVER WALK AWAY FROM IT ! IT IS JUST TOO TOO GREAT!
THAT IS WHAT WE NEED TO TEACH, THE TRUTH. . . TO KNOW WE ARE BORN OF GOD! ALL OF GOD’S !
IF WE ARE OF THE LIGHT, WE WOULD LOVE THE LIGHT AND THERE WOULD BE NO ROOM FOR ANY DARKNESS.
WE WOULD BE IN GOD, IN HIS LIFE, IN HIS LOVE, AND HAVE ETERNITY AND WOULD BE IN REAL JOY, FREE INDEED, FILLED UP OVERFLOWING AND WE WOULD GO TO ALL CREATION AND SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS! IT’S ALL ABOUT GOD IN US !
MANY HAVE SWALLOWED THE LIE (THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT) AND BELIEVE THEY ARE OF THIS WORLD (THEIR REALITY) AND NOT BORN OF GOD. Thus THEY are of the darkness and death and surely WILL die! God made it that way! Darkness (death) is transient (here only until the appointed time WHEN God says it will be no more).
BUT THANK GOODNESS FOR JESUS WHO SAYS “I AM YOU SAVIOR, YOUR REDEEMER THE MIGHTY ONE OF JACOB ! Isaiah 49:26 and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Savior and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.
Jesus is God’s Salvation, His very Name means that ( that’s why we sing ‘there is power in the Name of Jesus!’) When you believe means that you are part of that Salvation (to be in the Fullness of God). That means absolutely NO MORE /NEVER IN THE DARKNESS AND NOW FOREVER AND EVER IN THE LIGHT- EXACTLY WHO WE WERE BORN AND MEANT TO BE ! GOD’S VERY OWN FROM THE BEGINNING OF GOD’S VERY OWN THOUGHT!
To believe in God , First WE have to know that HE IS ! ( Hebrews 11:6 )
Jesus is the Revelation of All that God Is, Jesus came in bodily form so that we could SEE God .
The revelation by Jesus to us is that God is Real ! Jesus said if you have seen Me you have seen My Father, God. (John/14-9)
Salvation is to be in the Fullness of God by SEEING and KNOWING GOD !
Jesus said when you abide in Me I and My Father will make Our abode in you! ALL POWER AND GLORY !
“BEING CLOTHED BY THE POWER FROM ON HIGH!”
HOW? BY REVELATION! BY US BEING. . . AS JESUS IS. . . SO ARE WE, IN THIS WORLD. . . TO SHOW ALL CREATION GOD IN US! GOD'S SALVATION !
(1 John 4:17)
17 By this, love is perfected in us, so that we may have confidence to the very end ; because as He is, so also are we in this world.
GOD BLESS HIS LIFE AND LOVE IN US.
