Testify That You Have Eternal Life in You

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God (1 John 5:13).

Eternal life is not a promise in the sweet by and by; it’s a present-hour reality for the one who is born again! When you’re born again, the life of God completely supplants the human life with which you were born by your earthly parents. That’s why the Bible says, “For you have been born again. Your new life did not come from your earthly parents because the life they gave you will end in death” (1 Peter 1:23 TNLT). If you’re born again, you don’t have the human life and the life of God co-existing side by side (as some people claim); the only life you have is eternal life, which is the life of God.

Eternal life is the God-kind of life; it’s the life that He alone possessed until Jesus came and made that life available to us. The Bible says in John 5:26 “For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.” Then 1 John 5:11-12 says “And this is the record (the testimony), that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” When you received Christ, you received the life and nature of God into your spirit; and this became God’s testimony concerning you.

That life isn’t subject to sickness, disease or infirmities. The things that affect the human life cannot affect Zoë. That’s why it’s impossible for God to get sick, or suffer defeat. Now that you know you have the same quality of life that God has, this must become your testimony also in this month of April.

Yes, you must testify that though your physical body looks the same as it was before you were born again, every ounce of human life has been emptied and replaced with eternal life. In this month of testimony, God wants you to proclaim, announce and declare that you have His life dwelling in you. He wants you to testify that you’re not an ordinary person and that His life in you makes you indestructible. Hallelujah!
