The Sons Of God

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that children of God we should be called, and such we are! Therefore the world understandeth us not, because it understood not Him. Beloved! now are we children of God; and not yet hath it been made manifest what we shall be, we know that, if it should be made manifest, like unto Him shall we be, because we shall see Him just as He is. (1 John 3:1-2)

The very life of Jesus our Messiah is conceived in you by The Holy Spirit! You are a Son of God!

According to the “good pleasure of His will” God sent forth The Spirit of His Son to dwell in your heart. God has birthed Jesus’ life in your spirit which was once dead by reason of Adam’s sin.

Your spirit is alive, but it is not your life. It is a new life. It is Jesus’ life. “On the contrary now, no longer are we gaining it. So that, if any one is in the Messiah, there is a new creation! The old things have passed away, Lo! they have become new!” (2 Corinthians5:17)

As a result of this new life within you, your old man is dead you are dead to sin and alive to God. “Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin” (Romans 6:6)

With His blood Jesus has redeemed you. He has cleansed you from every sin. You are righteous in God’s eyes. You belong to Jesus. You no longer are bound by sin and the desires of the flesh. You are set free by the life that now lives in you.

The Father did not call you by His Spirit, cleanse you of your sins, and leave you on your own to live your life and serve Him as best you could. God has placed His life, and the very life of The Holy, All-powerful, Eternal Son of God within you. And just as Jesus lived His life on earth by The Father Who Loved Him, sent Him, who lived and dwelt in Him, you must live your life by Jesus who now lives and dwells in you.

Just as your physical body cannot live without food and nourishment, neither can your spirit live unless you “feed” it-drawing life and nourishment from Jesus the Messiah. There must be a continual dependence upon Jesus, a continual drawing of strength, a continual “abiding” in Him and His Word. And it is in this union in Him that His life will be lived in you.

Jesus lived His life on earth by The Father Who sent Him. He said, “And He that sent me is with me: The Father hath not left me alone.” (John 8:29) “I am in The Father, and The Father in me”(John 14:10)

Jesus’ words, His actions, His works were all a result of The Father living in Him. He said, “The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but The Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works” (John 14:10)

Because God has made you one of His sons, you are now able to live your life through the Messiah who dwells in you. And because The Father dwells in Jesus, He also dwells in you! Jesus said, “If a man love Me, he will keep My words: and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him, and make Our abode with him” (John 14:23)

It is in this union God The Father dwelling in Jesus; Jesus The Son, dwelling in you that you, as a son of God, are able to live as the express image of Jesus on this earth!

“For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power.” (Colossians 2:9-10)

Jesus prayed that we would come into this unity in Him. He said: “That they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be one in Us ” (John 17:21)

Jesus was not talking about the unity of the church in this verse. He was praying that you and I would enter into this close union. God The Father in Jesus, and Jesus in us, in which we would be one in Them. “I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be made perfect in one” (John 17:23)

In Jesus dwells all the fullness of the Godhead. Therefore, since Jesus dwells in you, the Godhead, Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwells in you!

Now, look at God’s purpose for this close union: “that the world may know that Thou has sent Me, and has loved them, and has loved Me.”

As a son of God, you have been given everything you need to walk, talk, and live your life as Jesus did in one hundred percent victory. You have been given “all things that pertain unto life and godliness!”

“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed into the image of his Son, that He might be the first-born among many brethren.” (Romans 8:29)

Just as Jesus the Messiah, in the form of human flesh, was the express image of God, God has planned for you and me, in the form of human flesh, to be the express image of Jesus now here on this earth! Yes, we are the sons of God right now (John 3:2)

God planned that, through Jesus’ death and resurrection, many sons would be born who would be the express imgae of their elder brother, Jesus, and who would become joint-heirs with Him.

Jesus stripped Himself of His divine attributes, came to earth in the form of human flesh, was anointed by the Holy Spirit, lived a sinless life, healed the sick, cast out demons, and defeated satan, leaving us an example to follow.

His life on earth as the Son of God is a revelation an exact pattern of what we, as Sons of God, are to be. You are a part of God’s end time plan. He has planned for you to be the express image of Jesus here on earth. It is often difficult for us-knowing the limitations and weaknesses of our own flesh, to believe it is possible to fulfil such a high calling. However, our confidence should never be in our own ability, but in the ability of God to bring to pass that which He has ordained!

Too long we have settled to be powerless, lukewarm, defeated Christians. We should leave behind the dry, dead traditions of men, and know who we are in God.

The minds of many Christians today have been programmed for defeat. It is possible for Christians to live their lives on earth as true sons of God. God has planned for Christians to think, walk, talk, and act as Jesus did.  It is possible to live a life free from sin walking in one hundred percent victory when we come into the full revelation of who we are in Jesus the Messiah.

Now is the time to rise up and take our rightful positions as true sons of The Living God.

It is possible. You can walk among men on this earth as a son of the Almighty God. Jesus came to show us what it would be like to live such a life. As Jesus walked the earth as the express image of the Father, you can be the express image of Jesus.

As Jesus was a visible representation and manifestation of God’s glory, you can, and must be a representation of Jesus’ glory. As Jesus was a visible manifestation of God to men on this earth, you can, and must be a visible manifestation of Jesus to men on this earth. This is God’s purpose and plan for His people!

It is this spiritual awareness that you are a son of God that will give you the strength and courage to face every circumstance, every fiery dart of the enemy without fear, knowing that God has already given you the victory.

When you come into the position of knowing:

  • that God has begotten you by His Spirit-
  • that God has birthed the life of Jesus, the all-powerful, eternal Son of God within you-
  • that the fullness of the Godhead dwells in you-
  • that He is transforming you into Jesus’ image by his Spirit
  • that you are a joint heir with Jesus-that everything Jesus has belongs to you-

When this happens in your life, REJOICE! For the devil doesn’t have a chance!

When you face situations and circumstances in which you just don´t know what to say or do, don’t lean on your own understanding. Don’t try to work things out on your own. Face those situations knowing you are a son of God, and knowing the all-powerful, all-knowing Jesus is in you to give you His wisdom and guidance.

Draw your strength from Him. Gain power from the sure knowledge that you are a part of God’s end time plan. Face your circumstances from the position of strength of knowing God has not planned any defeats for you!

“But as many as did receive Him, He gave unto them authority, children of God to become, unto them who were believing on His Name: Who not of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God were born.” (John 1:12-13)

From the very beginning of time God had a desire. He desired to have a people who would delight themselves in Him, a people who would love Him, with their entire beings. He desired sons, who would bear His Image and likeness.

As He cherished this great desire within His heart, He developed a plan that we would be born into His Family. He sent Jesus into the world to destroy the works of the devil, to redeem us from sin and to bring us into a position as His own sons, with His Life flowing through us.

Jesus was begotten of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit. Over two thousand years ago, the Holy Spirit came upon the virgin named Mary, and implanted the incorruptible seed of Jesus the Messiah within her womb. That Holy seed grew, and in the fullness of time, Jesus, The Son of God was born.

Man does not possess the power or right to become a son of God. No man can even come to Jesus unless The Spirit of God draws him (John 6:44)

You didn´t one day just decide to accept Jesus as your Saviour. By His Spirit He drew you. Then, when you responded to the drawing of The Holy Spirit and surrendered your entire being to Jesus, you were given the power the rightful claim to become a son of God. You were begotten of the Father.

“Of His own Will begat He us with the Word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of His creatures.” (James 1:18)

The word “begat” means “to give birth to; to bring forth.” by the exercising of His own Will, God the Father gave you birth. You were born again from above, not by your own will, but by the Will of God (John 1:13)

It was according to His Will and His Plan that you have become a son of God: “Blessed be God and Father of our Master Jesus the Messiah, Who hath blessed us with every spiritual blessing, in the heavenlies, in the Messiah, according as He made choice of us in Him, before the foundation of a world, that we might be holy and blameless in His presence; in love marking us out beforehand unto sonship, through Jesus the Messiah, for Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will.” (Ephesians 1:3-5)

You were born a son of God by His Spirit.

God Himself, according to the pleasure of His Will, chose you to be His son before the foundation of the world was even laid down!

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; (2 Corinthians 4:8)

There is no room in your life for defeat! Jesus was never defeated and He has not planned for you to be defeated.

Do you know why Paul could endure his many trials and tribulations and not be defeated? Because he was able to say, “I know in whom I have believed.” He said, “I´m persuaded it doesn´t make any difference whether I face shipwreck or whether I face all kinds of beatings and sufferings throughout my life.”

He said, “None of them can be compared to what I know. I know there is glory waiting for me. It’s inside me. It’s the manifestation of God Almighty and nothing can be compared to that glory. I can go through every test, every trial, every circumstance knowing I won´t be defeated!

Jesus was never defeated because He faced satan knowing He was The Son of The Living God. He knew God was in Him and would make Him victorious over satan.

God has planned for you to think, walk, talk and act as Jesus did. He has planned for you to face satan and conquer him in the same power and anointing as Jesus faced and defeated him.

When you face sickness and disease in your body or in the body of your friends and loved ones, you can face it and command it to leave knowing you are a son of God and that the same powerful life-giving flow of God dwells in you.

When you are pushed into a corner by mounting financial problems, you don´t need to panic or spend sleepless nights worrying how you are going to survive.

You can face those financial problems with faith and confidence knowing you are a son of The Living God, and knowing the same powerful force that was in the Messiah when He multiplied the fish and loaves of bread is in you and will make you victorious!

There is no room in your life for defeat, because there is a life within you that has never been defeated. There is a life within you that created the universe that spoke the sun, moon and stars into existence. There is a life within you that heals the sick, casts out demons and raises the dead.

There is a life within you that faced satan, conquered him and destroyed the power of sin, sickness and death. The same life-giving flow that was in Jesus is in you!

When you were born again, you became a son of The Living God.

Most Christians today do not know what that means. They know The Word says they are sons of God. But it is only theory there is no reality. They have not come into a full revelation of what it means to be a son of God.

As a result, they are living below their heritage below what God has planned for them to be below what God has planned for them to possess.

“Because in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the nature of God bodily, and ye are in Him filled full, Who is the head of all principality and authority, in whom ye have also been circumcised with a circumcision not done by hand, in the despoiling of the body of flesh, in the circumcision of the Messiah.” (Colossians 2:9-10)

As a son of God, through your union in Him and through His promises, you can be a partaker of His divine nature. He has given you “exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature” (2 Peter1:4).

As you appropriate these promises by faith, you have access to His love, His joy, His peace, His longsuffering, His righteousness, His wisdom, His glory, His power!

You are complete, perfected, brought to full maturity in Him.

As a son of God, you are an heir!

And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then a heir of God through the Messiah. (Galatians 4:6-7)

Not only are you a son of God, with the fullness of the Godhead dwelling in you, you are an heir of God.

You are a joint-heir with Jesus: “The Spirit itself beareth witness together with our spirit, that we are children of God; and if children, heirs also, heirs indeed of God, but co-heirs with the Messiah, if, at least, we are suffering together, in order that we may also be glorified together” (Romans 8:16-17)

God has appointed Jesus the Messiah, heir, legal owner of all things. The heavens, the earth, the kingdoms of this earth and everything in them He owns them all. As joint-heir, you share legal rights to all that belongs to Him. Think about that. Everything that He has belongs to you!

Jesus right now is seated at the right hand of The Father. He has been exalted and given a Name above every name. He has the supreme place of power and authority in the universe. As joint-heir, you are seated with Him (Ephesians 2:6)

This world and everything in it belongs to you. You have been given legal ownership of all things in heaven and in earth.

Let this great truth go deep into your spirit. God’s storehouse is full and it belongs to you!

Spiritual riches .spiritual gifts health prosperity abundant life all are yours!

“He that spared not His own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32)

“And the world passeth away, and the coveting thereof, but he that doeth the will of God endureth unto times age-abiding.” (1 John 2:17)

BEHOLD, what manner of love The Father has bestowed upon us, that we shall be called the sons of God!
