He was in the world, and the world was made by him, AND THE WORLD KNEW HIM NOT. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. BUT AS MANY AS RECEIVED HIM, TO THEM GAVE HE POWER TO BECOME THE SONS OF GOD, (to become Christians), even to them that Believe on his name: John 1:10-12. But the "manifestation" , (Strong's Definition: From G5319; exhibition that is (figuratively) expression (by extension) a bestowment: - manifestation"), of the Spirit is given to EVERY man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as He will. 1 Corinthians 12:7-11. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. AND THEY THAT ARE CHRIST'S HAVE CRUCIFIED THE FLESH with the affections and lust. Galatians 5:22-24. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, YE HAVE YOUR FRUIT UNTO HOLINESS, AND the end EVERLASTING LIFE. Romans 6:22. Have you ever noticed that all other religions out there have ether a very low standard for man, of his own doing, to attain to, or else a wishy washy god that really can't do much for man, so man hopes that the scales of justice fall in his favor? Or, have you noticed, that Christianity has a Standard too High for man to reach on his own, and that only in, with, and through God can man Grow to ANYTHING meaningful? It takes an act of man for man to reach his best. It takes an Act Of God for man to reach God's Best. No other religion tells you to Love God and Love your neighbor as yourself . Love God, and, Be Blessed.
