GOD'S TESTIMONY, OUR ONLY HOPE

BIBLE TEXT: I John 5:6‭-‬13 NKJV


  6 This is He who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.
  7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word (JESUS), and the Holy Spirit; and THESE THREE ARE ONE.
  8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and THESE THREE AGREE AS ONE.
  9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son.
 10 He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.
 11 And this is the testimony: THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US ETERNAL LIFE, AND THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON.
 12 He who has the Son HAS LIFE; he who does not have the Son of God DOES NOT HAVE LIFE.
 13 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.


Verse 6 of this bible text showed that Jesus came by water and blood, not only by water nor did He come only by the blood. This verse went further to say "it is the spirit who bears witness and the spirit is the truth". Jesus answered, "I am the way and the TRUTH and the Life. No one comes to the Father Except through me." John 14:6 NLT. This means Jesus is also the SPIRIT which is the TRUTH.

Now let us look at the verse 8 of the Bible text, we will see that this verse is pointing to what verse 6 has to say. The blood, the water, (Jesus Christ) and the Spirit (the Spirit is the truth, Jesus said "I am the truth"). The only witness we have on earth is therefore JESUS CHRIST, THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD.

The testimony of GOD is eternal life and this life can only be found in JESUS the SON (a witness both in heaven and on earth I John 5:7 & 8).

He who has the SON has life. The question now is; "Do you have life?"

PRAYERS
Our kind and Heavenly Father, we have come to the throne of mercy this hour to seek your face, we have come in the name of Jesus and we have come to give our lives to you. You love us so much, You gave us Your son, through Whom our hope eternal life is assured. Jesus gave us His life so that we will have eternal life, we appreciate this love so much and we want to give our lives back to Jesus.

Please take us as we are, purge us of our sins, give us a new life bless us with the Holy Spirit. Thank you Father because we believe you have answered our prayers.
in Jesus Name we pray.
AMEN



kindly share the message, God bless you
