The WORD of GOD is ETERNAL LIFE

 

1 John 5:12

King James Version

12 He that hath the Son hath life; 

and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.


What makes JESUS -- the WORD -- the ETERNAL LIFE?

In one post, we spoke of who can have eternal life.

But what is ETERNAL life?

JESUS defines it:

John 17:3

King James Version

3 And this is life eternal, 

that they might know thee the only true God, 

and Jesus Christ, 

whom thou hast sent.


Scripture speaks more on it.

1 John 5:20

King James Version

20 And we know that the Son of God is come

and hath given us an understanding, 

that we may know him that is true, 

and we are in him that is true, 

even in his Son Jesus Christ. 

This is the true God, 

and eternal life.


JESUS is the true God, and eternal life.

But we also know JESUS is the WORD of GOD.

Revelation 19:13

King James Version

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: 

and his name is called The Word of God.


Here's more proof that JESUS is the WORD, GOD, and LIFE.

John 1:1-4

King James Version

1 In the beginning was the Word, 

and the Word was with God, 

and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; 

and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; 

and the life was the light of men.


John 1:14

King James Version

14 And the Word was made flesh, 

and dwelt among us

(and we beheld his glory, 

the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) 

full of grace and truth.


JESUS is the WORD of LIFE.

He is ETERNAL LIFE manifested.

1 John 1:1-2

King James Version

1 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, 

of the Word of life;

2 (For the life was manifested, 

and we have seen it, 

and bear witness, 

and shew unto you that eternal life, 

which was with the Father, 

and was manifested unto us;)


GOD gave us the GIFT of ETERNAL life THROUGH JESUS.

Romans 6:23

King James Version

23 For the wages of sin is death; 

but the gift of God is eternal life 

through Jesus Christ our Lord.


And this LIFE is in HIS SON.

1 John 5:11

King James Version

11 And this is the record, 

that God hath given to us eternal life, 

and this life is in his Son.


JESUS' WORDS are SPIRIT, and LIFE.

John 6:63

King James Version

63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; 

the flesh profiteth nothing: 

the words that I speak unto you, 

they are spirit, 

and they are life.


In JESUS, we have LIFE.

John 5:39-40

King James Version

39 Search the scriptures; 

for in them ye think ye have eternal life: 

and they are they which testify of me.

40 And ye will not come to me, 

that ye might have life.


Based on where the Holy Spirit of God led me to:

JESUS is ETERNAL LIFE.

JESUS is the WORD of GOD.

SCRIPTURE is the WORD of GOD.

Thus:

The WORD of GOD = ETERNAL LIFE

JESUS = ETERNAL LIFE

SCRIPTURE = ETERNAL LIFE
