God Now Having Many Sons (1)

Bible Verses

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son... John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of God, Heb 2:10 For it was fitting for Him...in leading many sons into glory...

Words of Ministry

(Part 1 of 2) God had only one Son, His only begotten Son. However, God was not satisfied to have just one Son. He wanted many sons to be brought into glory. Therefore, God used His only begotten Son as a model, as a pattern, to produce many sons. Originally, Christ was the only Son of God. At a certain time, this Son of God came into the flesh by the name of Jesus. After 33½ years, Jesus was designated out of resurrection to be the Son of God. By this time, God had a Son with both divinity and humanity. Before His incarnation God's Son only possessed divinity; after His resurrection this Son of God had both divinity and humanity. Hallelujah! Now humanity has a part in God's Son. What about us? We were born the sons of man, but we have been reborn the sons of God. Whether we are male or female, we are all sons of God. In a sense, God has no daughters.... We are sons of God because the Spirit of the Son of God has come into us (Gal. 4:6). Just as the Son of God came into the flesh by incarnation, so now the Spirit of the Son of God has come into so many of us who are flesh. Therefore, in a sense, each one of us is the same as Jesus.
