REVEALING JESUS (PART THREE): JESUS IS THE LIFE.
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.
We saw in the previous series that Jesus is the way for man, for there is a way that seems right to man that they choose to follow but the end is the ways of death, for when man tread on such part he will end in death, but when a man walk in the path of Christ the way, his sure destination is life, and we saw that Jesus is the truth and that we need to increase in truth, for as we increase in truth, that is, by learning truth, Christ will be unfolded the more for us. It is wisdom to increase in knowledge.
Proverbs 24:5 A wise man is strong; yea, a MAN OF KNOWLEDGE INCREASETH strength.
so, there is need to increase even in truth, to learn more on the truth, for which Jesus is. We must understand that when we know Jesus the way, He will bring us to truth and make us to know His life and of course, He gives it, not just to know it but to have the life as He have it. Jesus has life as God has it so He can give to any one that comes to Him.
John 5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so HATH HE GIVEN to the Son to have life in himself;
So the Son can also give that life to people that come to Him, such becomes an heir of God and joint-heirs with Christ, as an heir we are due for anything of the kingdom and also the life in the kingdom, let me say this very quickly, the essence of the given of the Holy Ghost is because He is the Spirit of Jesus, the Spirit of Truth, that’s why in the kingdom of God, you’ll be given what is in the kingdom or you’ll be given whatever is given to Christ because you’re an heir of God and joint-heirs with Christ, They don’t measure it differently, no cheating of saying Jesus is the Firstborn and you’re the last, no, God raise us to that life of Jesus because many Christ’s must appear on the face of the earth. They can’t defeat the wicked one with anything less of Christ, it must be equal, it is because the wicked one can not defeat Christ not even death, for if we are been made low to Christ we will be cheaply defeated by death, remember He said when you take part in His body you have life and because of that He will raise you up the last day, it appears that the power to raise man up the last day is the life that God gives man, that’s why the life Jesus gives is not a life lower than His but it is made like of His own, you understand that? Scriptures that talks on this.
Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
John 17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, THAT HE SHOULD GIVE ETERNAL LIFE to as many as thou hast given him.
17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and JESUS CHRIST, whom thou hast sent.
Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN YOU.
Romans 8:11 But IF THE SPIRIT OF HIM THAT RAISED UP JESUS from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by HIS SPIRIT THAT DWELLETH IN YOU.
1 John 4:4 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.
1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
1 Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
1 John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but HE THAT IS BEGOTTEN OF GOD keepeth himself, and THAT WICKED ONE TOUCHETH HIM NOT.
God has that life, that life also in Christ the Father gave Him power to give to anyone that come to Him and He will in no way cast out.
John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
Jesus won’t cast you out. He will give you life, we understand by His word that Jesus is a life given Spirit.
1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; THE LAST ADAM WAS MADE A QUICKENING SPIRIT.
And we saw that He quickened us when we gave our lives to Him.
Ephesians 2:1 AND YOU HATH HE QUICKENED, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
The Father has life in Himself so He gives the Son to have life in Himself, that’s how He was made Him a quickening spirit. We saw also that He was given authority to give that life. The life of Jesus is the life we ought to keep living by, as we walk daily we must keep living by that life. We must not know any other way but the way which is Jesus, we must not know any other truth than Jesus the truth and there is nothing that can offer life as Jesus offers it. We should keep walking in the revelation of Jesus that we know. When Christ is revealed to the heart, and such a heart embraces it, the man will keep walking in life. We therefore trust that the path of life be made known to us more.
Psalms 16:11 THOU WILT SHEW ME THE PATH OF LIFE: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
This is to keep walking in His life. We can’t leave the Holy Ghost out of this, He is the One doing the work here on earth in us. Jesus is the way, the Holy Spirit shows us the way, He does to us like a path, Jesus is the the truth, the Holy Spirit show us the the truth because He is the Spirit of truth, and Jesus is the life, Jesus was made a quickening or life given Spirit, the Holy Ghost guides us into the path of life which is in Christ Jesus. God bless you. Keep walking…
