God's True Children

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by BRIGHT, Nov 12, 2012.

  1. BRETHREN, PLEASE FIND TIME TO READ THIS ARTICLE TO KNOW IF TRULY, YOU ARE MEASURING UP AS THAT ADOPTED CHILD TO BE NAMED A TRUE CHILD OF GOD, CONFIRMED BY GOD HIMSELF TO BE REVEALED ON THE LAST DAY. AS APOSTLE PAUL WOULD SAY, WE ALL LIVE IN HOPE TO BE COUNTED AS ONE. CHEERS!

  2. Rom_8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
    Rom_8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

    This HAS to be accepted by FAITH!
     
    KingJ and calvin say Amen and like this.
  3. I'm afraid you are too "Bright" for me Bright and you lost me. I like to keep it simple the same as Jesus did. Just as our earthly parents train us in the way we should go I reckon we shall know we are the children of God when our heavenly Father chastises us. At least we have the assurance that we are known to Him. :)

    "And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:

    “My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
    Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
    For whom the Lord loves He chastens,
    And scourges every son whom He receives.”

    If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it."

    Hebrews 12:5-11 NLT

  6. It's a call to conscious living, knowing that our adoption paperwork though completed, have not been signed, for the Crown of Sonship or Rightousness(2Tim 4:8) or Life(Jam 1:12) to be given us on Earth, even though we're currently called sons just like what we see in our world; until that signed papers are handed over to us on the last day, we are not yet confirmed. Though, we are sealed for it, we must continue to HOPE and keep the FAITH so that we be not discredited at last, as illegitimate children and not sons. Hence, Heb 12:1-2 would say, "Let us run with endurance the race before us, looking unto Jesus the founder and perfecter of our FAITH, who for the joy set before Him endured the Cross, despising the shame and is now seated at the right side of God". We too, like Jesus, must run the race to the finish and not deceive ourself as having completed the race while still running the race.

    Until we cross the finish line, we must remain focused and conscious, so as not to run amiss in the end. This, Jesus calls us to do, by checking our standing each day, based on the tripod of a PEACEMAKER, that we are all called to become. "Be Faithful unto death and I will give you the Crown of Life" (Rev 2:10). That Promised Crown of Life, is the True Crown of Sonship. Let us try and run to the end with hope and steadfast faith, that He who has called us and is leading us, will at the end Crown us in His MERCIES as His True Sons. May God, bless us all. Cheers!
