ETERNAL LIFE

Now this is eternal life: knowing You, Father, the One True Living God, and knowing Jesus Christ Your Son, the Messiah Whom You have sent.  God Himself has given this testimony concerning His Son: I have granted you eternal life, and this life is given through union with My Divine Son Jesus.  Whoever is joined together with My Son in a living union of oneness possesses that life; whoever is not joined together with My Son in a living union of oneness does not possess that life.  I have written this to you so that you who place your trust in Christ My Son will know, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that you do now indeed have eternal life.

Since God Himself has clearly stated: I have granted you eternal life, and this life is given through union with My Divine Son Jesus…how do I enter into this relationship?  Jesus answered that question in His response to Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council: “I tell you the truth, unless one is born again, he cannot be in God’s Kingdom.”  “How can a grown man be born again,” Nicodemus asked?  “He certainly cannot enter his mother’s womb and be born a second time!”  Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  You should not be surprised at My saying You must be born again.”

I must be joined inseparably together with Christ Jesus the Messiah in a Sacred Covenant relationship…an eternal living union of oneness, through the new life to be conceived in me by the Holy Spirit…
A new life is both conceived and born through the Power of the Holy Spirit, when the Divine Seed of the Word of God planted in my heart is fertilized by the consent of my will…the Holy Spirit will sweep over you and the Power of the Most High will overshadow you.  I am literally a new creation…not in the physical realm, where I already exist…but in the spiritual realm, where prior to this I did not exist.  God Himself is therefore my Father, and I bear His spiritual DNA in my soul!

Christ Jesus was conceived in Mary His mother’s womb and born into the physical realm after the completion of her term of pregnancy, through the Power of the Holy Spirit when He planted a human seed in Mary’s womb, fertilized by the consent of her will when she said to the angel, “May it be done unto me as you have said.”  Jesus, therefore, did not have a human Father; God Himself was His Father in the physical realm, just as it had been for all Eternity in the spiritual realm of the Triune Godhead in which Jesus is the Eternal Divine Son of God.

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: the angel Gabriel went to Mary and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored!  The Lord is with you.  You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.”  “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”  Then the angel said to her, “The Holy Spirit will sweep over you and the Power of the Most High will overshadow you, causing you to conceive and give birth to a son.  Therefore, the holy Offspring which shall be born of you will be called the Son of God.”  “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be done unto me as you have said.” Then the angel left her. [Matt 1:18; Luke 1:26-38]

Do you believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Divine Son in the Triune God, the Lamb of God Who came into this world to become the One only, all-sufficient, atoning sacrifice through His death on a cross and subsequent resurrection, thereby securing forgiveness for your sins and restoring your relationship with God that had been severed by sin?

Do you now solemnly vow before God to give yourself to be the bride of Christ, receiving Jesus the Christ into your life in a spiritual marriage, promising to honor and obey Him as both Lord over your life and Savior of your soul?

To be joined inseparably together with Him in a Sacred Covenant relationship…an eternal living union of oneness through the new life to be conceived in you by the Holy Spirit…

To have and to hold Him, above all others and above all else this world has to offer, as the choicest, most precious treasure of your heart…

To love and to cherish Him, above all others and above all else this world has to offer, reserving for Him alone your sweetest, most tender affections…

for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, all the days of your life, until death of this body brings you to be together with Him in Heaven for all eternity.
