John 17:3 (AMP); And this is eternal life: [it means] to know (to perceive, recognize, become acquainted with, and understand) You, the only true and real God, and [likewise] to know Him, Jesus [as the] Christ (the Anointed One, the Messiah), Whom You have sent.
Eternal life is not the life to come. It is the life now IN the revelation of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Like our theme scripture says, eternal life is the knowledge of God.
This means that it is eternal to know God.
What makes it eternal is not merely the fact that it is an endless lifetime that is not subject to the dictates of time.
Rather, it is eternal because of the limitlessness of the knowledge of God.
The Bible calls them the deep and bottomless things of God (1 Corinthians 2:10 AMP).
So, eternal life is not eternal life simply because it will last forever; it is eternal life because there can never be an end to the knowledge of God.
The fullness of this life depends on how deep you launch in this knowledge.
We are as eternal as our knowledge of God.
That is why you must INVEST IN KNOWLEDGE. It is the greatest gift by God–to know Him! Hallelujah!
FURTHER STUDY: 1 John 5:11, 1 Corinthians 2:10 (AMP).
Eternal life is not eternal life simply because it will last forever; it is eternal life because there can never be an end to the knowledge of God. That is why you must invest in knowledge. It is the greatest gift by God–to know Him!
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. I have received eternal life and walk in the manifestation of this life every day. I launch deeper and deeper in the knowledge of You and as I walk in the depths of eternal truth, I manifest the God-life to the glory of Your name. Amen.
