God Commands Man to Get It

      If God commands man to get it, then who shall stand against Him? No one can deny Him forever, for the day of judgment will eventually come.

  

John 12:44-50

44 Then Jesus cried out and said, “He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him (God) who sent Me. 45 And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me. 46 I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. 47 And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day. 49 For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. 50 And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak.”

 

 Men can have it (eternal life) by believing in Jesus Christ (Jn. 3:15-16, 36; 5:24; 6:40, 47)

John 3:15-16   15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

 

It becomes a well springing up in the soul (Jn. 4:14)

John 4:14   14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

 

Men must gather fruit unto life eternal (Jn. 4:36)

John 4:36   36 And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.

 

 It comes through searching the scriptures (Jn. 5:39)

John 5:37-47   37 And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form. 38 But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe.

Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”

 

Men must labor for it (Jn. 6:27).

John 6:27   27 Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”

 

It comes by drinking of, or partaking of the benefits of the blood of Jesus Christ by faith (Jn. 6:54)

John 6:54   54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

 

Christ has the words of eternal life (Jn. 6:68)

John 6:68   68 But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life

 

Christ gives eternal life to His own who meet the conditions (Jn. 6:27; 10:27-29)

John 10:27-30     27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 I and My Father are one.”

 

God commands men to get it (Jn. 12:50)

John 12:50   50 And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak.”

 

God sent Jesus to give it to all who come to Him through Christ (Jn. 17:2)

 John 17:2   as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.

 

To know or to experience God and Jesus Christ is eternal life (Jn. 17:2-3)

 John 17:2-3   as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

  

Jesus Christ is that eternal life (1 Jn. 1:1-3)

1 John 1:1-3   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, concerning the Word of life—the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us—that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.

 

 This eternal life has actually been seen, heard, and handled (1 Jn. 1:1-3) (see immediately above)

 

Men must not only meet the 23 conditions of eternal life of Jn. 6:27, but they must be let, or permit it to remain in them after get it they (1 Jn. 2:24-25)

1 John 2:24-25   24 Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.

 

 Eternal life is offered to all (1 Jn. 2:25), but only those who meet the conditions of receiving and keeping it will be accepted (Jn. 6:27)

John 6:27   27 Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”

 

No man who hates his brother has it (1 Jn. 3:15)

1 John 3:15   15 Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.

 

Eternal life comes from God thru His Son (1 Jn. 5:11)

1 John 5:11   11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

 

God commands man to get it, meaning if man does not do the things necessary to obtain eternal life by believing in His Son and obeying the commandments He has brought from the Father. For if men do not believe then they will be judged as non-believers and will not see God’s heaven.

 

Please remember that if we have any hope in our Lord and Savior who gave us “everything” we must be continually faithful to the Lord, first. Remember, God loved us first, even before He created us.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
