Revealing The True Gift of GOD

In confirming The Truth to our hearts, Jesus Testified that He has received POWER from The Father to prevail over the flesh of men, to give Eternal life to as many as The Father has given unto Him. This confirms to us that there is no gift of life apart from The Revelation revealed by GOD through HIS Word, Whom HE has sent. Any promise of Eternal Life, which is not centered in Christ's Gospel, is a promise made by the wisdom of men, which bears no fruit. For The Gospel that bears Fruit unto Eternal Life, is The Gospel that bears Witness to The Father and The Son, Whom HE The Father has sent. The Gift of Eternal Life is given to those, who believe The Testimony of The Things seen and heard of HIS Son, that The Father is The Only True GOD, and He The Son is The only One Whom The Father has sent, to make HIS NAME known.

Having received His Gospel, John testified and said, "That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (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;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship [is] with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

"And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us" (1 John 1:1-10).

From the beginning, GOD has revealed The Truth of HIS Word, Who was with HIM in creation of all things. The Father has given HIS WITNESS of HIS Son and has revealed to John that, "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made" (John 1:3). By HIS WITNESS, The Father has revealed that there was nothing created without The Power of HIS Son, Who created all things by the breath of his mouth. Through His servant David, The Father revealed by HIS Word that, "By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth" (Psalms 33:6).

In receiving The WITNESS of The Father through HIS Word, some might think within their hearts that both David and John was testifying of The Father and not of HIS Son, Who was with HIM in the beginning. But Paul testified of The Truth and said, "Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated [us] into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the preeminence. For it pleased [the Father] that in him should all fulness dwell" (Colossians 1:12-19).

He, Who was before all things Testified in His gospel that "The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When [there were] no depths, I was brought forth; when [there were] no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I [was] there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, [as] one brought up [with him]: and I was daily [his] delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights [were] with the sons of men" (Proverbs 8:22-31).

In His Testimony of The Things He has seen and heard of The Father, Jesus has Testified that He came forth from HIM, WHO possessed Him in the beginning of HIS Way. To make clear His Testimony to our hearts, The Word, Who came forth from The Father, has Testified in His Gospel to those, who were rejecting His Witness, saying, "...If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? [even] because ye cannot hear my word" (John 8:42,43).

Notice the clarity of His Witness, that He came not from Himself, which makes it clear to us That He came forth from The Father, or was born of GOD, WHO possessed Him in the beginning of HIS Way. The Father Testified also by Him, Whom HE has sent, to Testify to us of What He has heard, saying, "...unto the Son [he saith], Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, [even] thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows" (Hebrews 1:8,9). From His Testimony of what He had heard from The Father, Jesus Testified that The Father, WHO is His GOD has called Him God, and has anointed Him with HIS SPIRIT of GLADNESS above His fellow angels, because He is The Holy One, Who has received a Name, Which is above all names, Which is Jesus, The Son of GOD, Who sits on the right of HIS Throne.

In His prayer to The Father, Jesus said, "I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received [them], and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me" (John 17:6-8).

In this revelation of The Gift of GOD to men, Jesus has revealed Himself as The Spirit of GOD, Who reveals in Himself all the fullness of GOD. He revealed This Truth to His disciples before, but they did not understand His revelation to them. He has also revealed This Truth to the church, but many are yet without understanding of His revelation. He said to His disciples, who were amazed at The Power He did in His Father's NAME, saying, "Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men. But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying. Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great" (Luke 9:44-48).

Because of the spiritual blindness of our minds to perceive and see The Truth of What has being revealed, and the darkness of our hearts to hear deep down in our ears The Word of Truth, Who has been delivered of GOD into the hands of men, the disciples at that time and many today, who handle The Word of God misinterpret The Word given of GOD to men. For if we are to receive The Gift of GOD, Who has been delivered into our hands, then we must received those, who come in His Name with The Truth, Who has been given of GOD. If we receive those, who receive The Truth, then we will receive Him through them. And if we have received Him through those, who come in His Name, then we will receive The Father, WHO sent Him to make HIS NAME known to men.

This revelation on receiving The Spirit of GOD, John sought to deliver into the hands of those, who served as leader within the church, but because of the misinterpretation of his saying, many to this day are failing to receive The Gift of GOD through the reading of HIS Word. Through John, The Word said, "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error" (1 John 4:1-6)."

From this revelation, as revealed through the testimony of John, it is misunderstood by men, who without The Gift of Faith have handle The Word of GOD without perceiving The Truth, Who has been revealed of GOD. And because of this lack of Faith, men focus their attention on the thought that this testimony of John speaks of those, who do not believe in The Truth that Christ was born in the same flesh and nature of men. But this is not the focus of what his testimony is saying. If these men had open their ears to The Sayings, which was hid from the disciples, and trusted in The Word to reveal GOD'S Will to them, then they would have understood what GOD has revealed to men by HIS Word through His servant John, who was himself of flesh.

The focus of the sayings are brought more to our understanding when it is revealed through John that we are of GOD, and are children of GOD, because of Him, Who dwells in us. It is He, Who is The Spirit, Who comes to us through those, who are of the flesh. Now, if men believe not The Truth that Jesus Christ is come to us through the flesh of His disciples, or those, who have receive The Gift of GOD, then those, who believe not The Truth have denied The Truth, Who has come to dwell with us. They are then of antichrist, who receive not The Truth, Whom The Father has sent.

John said it more clearly, saying, "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also]. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, [even] eternal life" (1 John 2:22-25).

From this testimony, it is clear that we cannot receive The Father without first receiving The Gift of HIS Son, Whom HE has sent. For Jesus came to earth to reveal to men and to angels The NAME of The Father, WHO sent Him. For He said, "Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all [men] unto me" (John 12:31,32). The word men was inserted by the translator to help understand His message to those, who would receive Him, but the angels in heaven also needed to receive The Truth of GOD. So, by His servant Paul, He has revealed The Truth, saying, "...that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse" (Romans 1:19,20).

GOD has revealed HIS TESTIMONY by HIS Word, Who came to make HIM known to men. HE has not done this by someone else. It is HE, WHO speaks by HIS Word to reveal HIMSELF to men. For Jesus said to Philip, "Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I [am] in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father" (John 14:10-12).

As The Father spoke by HIS Word to His disciples, who received Him, like wise The Spirit of GOD, Who was received by the disciples, were sent in His Name to make known to men The Spirit, Who Testified of GOD through them. John testified of Him and said, "...many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son" (2 John 1:7-9).

If we have receive The Spirit of GOD, and allow Him, Who has been delivered into our hands to reveal to us The deep Things of GOD through those, who are born of GOD, then we would have received Eternal Life, to proclaim with The Father and HIS Word, The Truth of The Gospel of GOD to those, who will receive Him by faith through our hands.

If we really believe in The Witness of The Son of GOD, would we by our unrighteous thoughts seek to reinterpret and change The Thoughts of GOD by HIS Word to human wisdom, just to fit our own understanding of What we think is Truth? If we do, we would be changing The Righteousness of GOD, Which HE has ordained for us from before the foundation of the world. May we trust in Him to guide us into all that The Father has ordained for us to fulfill in us HIS Will. Amen.
