MORNINGTIME 2818
 
If we receive the witness of men, (that's good, but) The Witness Of God is greater: for this is the Witness Of God which he hath Testified of His Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the Witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made Him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. AND THIS IS THE RECORD, THAT GOD HATH GIVEN TO US ETERNAL LIFE, and this life is IN his Son. 1 John 5:9-11. Here's how this works. If you write some great novel and the book review critics love it, they may pronounce you as some "Great" writer of all time, and that's called the witness of man. Everyone knows that as soon as you say the wrong thing during your book tour, "they" will drop you like a hot potato. You're "in" one day and "out" the next. BUT WHEN THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY TESTIFIES OF SOMETHING ABOUT YOU, IT STANDS FOREVER. When the Lord says, "He's Mine, I have  given him Eternal Life in and through My Son, Jesus, The Christ", that Testimony is Anchored On The Rock,  and no one can shake it loose. That Testimony is seen by the world and they can't honestly refute it. That same Testimony wells up from deep in your Spirit and you KNOW you Belong to Christ, and the you are His and He is yours. And NOTHING that comes against you from man OR from Satan can shake that Knowledge of your Eternal Destiny. Don't misunderstand, when God's Seal is on you, it's solid and unshakable. BUT WHEN MAN'S SEAL OF APPROVAL IS UPON YOU, IT CAN VERY QUICKLY SHAKE AND FALL. I'll illustrate. When you get Satan's "cheap salvation", (you go up front, repeat a prayer, join the church, AND THAT'S ALL, NOTHING EVER CHANGES), there is no real, deep, abiding, assurance you can count on. Even a "baby" Christian can shake "your faith" as your life comes down like a house of cards. Real Faith and Salvation is full of Joy Unspeakable, and all wrapped up in The Peace That Passes Understanding. Be Assured, Follow Christ, and, Be Blessed.
