For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us (1 John 1:2).
All around us are living things: people, plants, animals and even microscopic organisms. But what gives them life? What’s the substance of life? Men may have been able to form the human body and to create plants, but no one has ever created life. The best they’ve done is to take life from a living thing and put it into another, as the very source of life is unknown to man; he can’t create it.
The opening verse above says, “For the life was manifested….” What a construction! This is referring to Jesus Christ; He’s the embodiment of life. He’s the real essence. Life in its entirety was encapsulated in a human body and manifested to us in the Person of Jesus Christ.
He is that life which was with the Father and was manifested to us (1 John 1:2). Everything gets life from Him. When He walked the earth, He didn’t need life from God; He was life! In John 5:26, He said, “For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.” This explains why He’s able to give life to anyone and to everything.
1 John 5:11-12 says, “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” Blessed be God! The life that Jesus gives destroys and repels the works of darkness in the human body.
Always be more conscious of your divinity and walk in victory, for Christ our life is now in you, and as He is, so are we in this world. Amen.
I have the very life and nature of God in me, because I’m born again. This God-life makes me impregnable, causing me to walk in victory, glory, dominion and excellence always. My body is inundated with the life of God, and I walk in divine health and victory, living above sickness, disease, infections and the destruction that ravage the ordinary man. Hallelujah!
|| John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. ||
|| John 10:10 AMPC
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). ||
|| 1 John 5:11-13 NIV
And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. ||
