"And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life." (1 John 5:20)
The word translated, "know," is from a root word which means "to stare at, to discern clearly, to gaze with wide-open eyes, as at something remarkable." And what, my friend, is any more "remarkable" than our text?
It just simply does not get any better than this. I referred to today's text in yesterday's devotional, and it has been "staying" with me ever since. This is Christian Theology 101. This is the essence of the Biblical Message, Bible Prophecy, Salvation (healing, deliverance, prosperity, preservation, peace), the key to "End Time" understanding, to understanding the current world chaos, your neighbor-------------------------------- yourself.
1. "And we know," because the Breath of God has spoken
2. Jesus, "has come"
3. Jesus, "has given us an understanding"
4. Jesus came, "that we may know Him"
5. Jesus is, "Him who is true"
6. Jesus, "is the true God"
7. Jesus, "is...eternal life."
If you and I know, receive, and believe our text, we have a "computer chip" which will ignite the power of God in us, and will spread the knowledge of, "the true God," to the nations. Embrace this Truth, and we embrace the "key to life."
Father, in Jesus' Name, I embrace You, "the true God." Amen.
