KEY SCRIPTURE: John 3:16 KJV” For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
All those who would surrender to Jesus in submission to him would live. They would receive eternal life. What is eternal life? There are various forms of life. There is the life of plants. There, is also the life of animals. Humans also have a life called psuche . Psuche is a soulish life. There is also a higher form of life. This is the life of God. It is called Zoe.
John 5:26 KJV” For as the Father, hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; “Eternal life is not just life after death. It is an endless life. Eternal life is the life of God, that we receive when we believe in Jesus. This is the kind of life the word says, “is the light of men”. John 1:4 KJV” In him was life; and the life was the light of men”. The Lord said this life shines in darkness, that is the power and works of Satan CANNOT, understand, overcome, put it out or stop it.
Let’s take a good look at the statement in John 1:4. In the Son or word is life, and this life is the solution of man against all the works of the devil. Many saints easily yield to the works of the devil, like sin, sicknesses, demonic harassment, and any other works of the devil. Dear child of God, the day you gave your life to God, you partook a life that is higher than the man who has not surrendered to Jesus.1Jn 5:11 KJV “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.” Anyone who has the Son has life. You have God’s solution for a life of victory and constant success
Our key scripture of this study shows that those who reject Jesus, or do not believe in Him will perish. Satan, has set up the power of failure, destruction and decay for all men and creation as a whole. Romans 8:20 KJV” For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,” The answer to this is the life Jesus brought to us. Anyone who does not receive Jesus would ultimately perish in hell. If you would give your life to Him, you would be a Victor now in this present life and age, as well as the life to come. Choose Jesus choose life and mastery over Satan.
THOUGHT: TO REFUSE JESUS IS TO CHOOSE, FAILURE IN THIS LIFE, AND ETERNAL DESTRUCTION IN THE LIFE TO COME.
Rom 8:21 KJV” Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”
1 John 5:13 KJV “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.”
