"He was in the world – the world came to be through Him -
yet the world did not know Him.
He came to His own homeland,
yet His own people did not receive Him.
But as many as did receive Him, to those who put their trust in His person
and power, He gave the right to become children of GOD,
not because of bloodline, physical impulse or
human intention, but because of GOD.
In the beginning, ELOHIM separated darkness from light. Darkness could never know light nor can it overcome light, but light always dispels darkness. The Word was in the beginning with ELOHIM and the Word was ELOHIM. All things came to be through Him, and without Him nothing had being. In Him was life and the life was the light of mankind (Jn 1:2-4). The Word is GOD and GOD is the Word. Everything in all of creation has its being in the Word. The Word is both spirit and life itself (Jn 6:63). YESHUA spoke to the patriarchs and the prophets as the Word of GOD.
YESHUA came down from the City of Light and the people of darkness saw His light and glory. All who come to YESHUA the Messiah and believe is born from above, just like Messiah descended from above. All who believe have been born from above not from some seed that will decay, but from one that cannot decay, through the living Word of GOD that last forever (1Pet 1:23). The seed of the Word is guaranteed to grow as it is nurtured by the Word. How? Nobody knows, but the soil of man's heart produces a crop – first the stalk, then the head, and finally the full grain in the head (Mk 4:28). Whoever is born from above, bears the fruit of the FATHER; just like YESHUA did the deeds of the FATHER. Because he has partaken of the divine nature through union with YESHUA, he cannot help but do what his nature naturally does. A human will naturally do what a human does. A monkey will always do monkey business. So, one who is born from above will exhibit the will of the One who birth him. The Word becomes flesh!
The one born from above "sees" the things of GOD. The word see (Hebrew ra'ah) is more than just sight but the use of eyes and ears in the Hebrew mindset expresses the concept of understanding and application. So it is not just knowing the letter of Scriptures but the spirit of the Scriptures. To abide in YESHUA, is to abide in His Word. He who abides in YESHUA has eternal life (1Jn 5:11,12).
YESHUA did not come to build a religion. He came to build a kingdom – a kingdom of Light – that mirrors the Kingdom from above. That's why its citizens must be born from above bearing the DNA of the FATHER, just like YESHUA. They are GOD's kind – a kingdom of kings and priest. The rule of the Kingdom is to love and serve, just like YESHUA. They are not of this world but they are in the world as a light so people may be attracted to GOD's light. All who does what is true comes to the light, so that all may see that his actions are accomplished through GOD (Jn 3:20).
GOD's word is a light to our path. All who loves the Word, loves GOD. All who hates the Word, hates GOD. Wisdom is a tree of life and the fruit of righteousness is like a tree producing life (Prov 3:18; 11:30). The Tree of Life is the Word of GOD and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is the word of the Adversary. YESHUA gives life, abundant life; whereas Satan only kills, steals and destroys.
