“The life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.” 1 John 1:2-3 ESV
Dear Heavenly Father – Thank you for all that you have done for us. Thank you for all that you are doing. Thank you for all you will do. Please strengthen our testimony by being glorified in our lives. Please use it to encourage and heal others. Thank you, thank you, thank you that my life can glorify you. In the name of Jesus – Amen
Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! The LIFE was manifested! The Amplified classic version says, “Life [an aspect of His being] was manifested” – and I say, “and aspect?! Just and aspect?!” Jesus is Life! Jesus is the Word of Life! He is the Word – And the Word is a sword! And it all is LIFE! It all brings life!
New International Version says, “The Life appeared”. Jesus has appeared! Amen?! He is real. He walked this earth as the Son of God and died for our sin and was resurrected for our deliverance!
The New Living Translation says, “one who is life itself was revealed to us”!!!
Dear Lord, reveal yourself through me!!! Reveal yourself and life to my son! Reveal yourself and life to the people we are all praying for – we lift each and every one of them up to you, begging you to reveal yourself and awaken them!!! And help us to testify, so you can use us to answer that prayer for others – by being used by you, for you to be revealed in someone else’s life! In Jesus Name we Pray!!!
Life is ζωὴ (zōē). Strong’s Greek 2222: “Life, both of physical (present) and of spiritual (particularly future) existence. From zao; life.”
Life!!!! We see this same Greek word in another passage written by John, where Jesus says:
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” John 10:10 ESV
Abundant LIFE for us both spiritually and physically, for the time when Jesus walked the earth, for you and me today, and for the future mankind – abundantly. And once Jesus is manifested, this Life is as eternal as the son of God is eternal! As God, Himself, is eternal.
I have jumped right in today because ZOE is something to get excited about! Jesus is life – and this is transformative. I am telling you so because I have seen it and testify to it and proclaim to you eternal life.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NIV
The thief comes to steal – He stole so many years from me and tried to kill me: He destroyed relationships, he caused confusion, he killed my unborn child – a miscarriage, he stole my peace and hope, he caused sorrow and devastation.
It does take strength and courage; fear not, the Lord shall provide grace. I share the Lord and the enemy still comes to steal, kill, and destroy – It is his response to God being glorified!. He is trying to hold my mother captive, as well as my spiritually asleep love ones – HE CANNOT BECAUSE MY GOD IS LIFE!. He is trying to destroy my house God has made the damage minimal because my God is LIFE! And he is try to disrupt my finances (other large dollar repairs and replacements that I have need of) MY GOD IS LIFE – ABUNDANT LIFE!!! So I have peace, I have life, and let me tell you all the Good things God is doing!!!
GLORY TO GOD!!! Through grace I am saved! I have LIFE! I have life abundantly – say it! Proclaim it! Speak it out and be blessed! Speak it in the name of Jesus over you, your house and your children! God is doing a good thing in your life! Yes, yours. You are not reading this on accident! No! This Life is for you as well.
Speak it out it – LIFE is your testimony! Jesus is your testimony!!! He is the Son of the mighty God! He is the reflection of God! He is our intercessor! He is LORD!!! And therefore all Glory goes to God for His great goodness to us! Hallelujah!!!
“that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.” 1 John 1:3 ESV
We have Jesus manifested in our lives so we can share and other can have fellowship with us – and our fellowship is with the Father and Son. Do we understand???
Fellowship κοινωνία (koinōnia) Strong’s Greek 2842: From koinonos; partnership, i.e. participation, or [intimacy], or benefaction.
Indeed our participation, partnership, intimacy, relationship, bond, benefaction, all blessings and grace, and life IS WITH the Father and WITH His Son, Jesus Christ. And when we share, others who believe become and are our family – brothers and sister who can share this relationship with the Holy God and with each other. Our real relationship with them is for the glory of God to bring others to this life – abundant life.
A life of freedom without bondage. A life of deliverance from demonic influences. A life of true love and peace that goes beyond the human ability to understand. A life of power and authority. A healed life. A restored life! An abundant life!!!
That thief has stolen and God is restoring! That thief has killed and God is healing and bringing life! That thief has destroyed and shall be destroyed!!! Jesus said: “IT IS FINISHED!”
Dear Lord we thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!! You are such a good life giving God!!! We ask, because your word says to ask, for restoration of what the thief has stolen – restore Life! And life abundantly!!! And we thank you for it – we praise you because you are able and are restoring!!! In the name of Jesus!!! And Lord we ask for life in the areas of us that have been killed by the thief! We are born again, sharing in the resurrection because you brought our death cause by our sins, back to life in the name of Jesus!!!
You had a dream from God and it has died? Ask the life giver to bring it to life! You had a hope that has seemed to have been killed – The life giver is bringing back to life as we ask! You have stood on dead promises made by man too long!!! Ask for life giving promises from the Father! You are in bondage to something dead or grief – Jesus breaks those chains when we ask and brings life! LIFE!!! Praise the Lord of LIFE – the Son of God who IS LIFE!!!
Thank you, dear Jesus – for our deliverance. I ask, where there was destruction please bring construction and restoration and reestablish us in the victory of the cross! Thank you Lord Jesus for Life! You are working, even where we cannot see in the physical realm your works. In the name of Jesus!!
I hope you pray these prayers – make them personal. Let the Lord heal and bring more life. And if you already have life – you will have abundance and where you have abundance of Life – you will have exceeding abundance! Hallelujah!
I have a relationship with the Father God, through His Son, Jesus Christ and fellowship with them – yet, this blesses me and restores me and overflows. In Life there is a consuming fire refreshing my soul and spirit. There is more healing – more goodness, more blessing yet to come. The eternal life is great and wonderful – always remember these promises are for here, now – in the midst of our current battles with the enemy. My God is a warring God – fighting for us with all love, all life, all hope in promises He has never failed on. His glory shines on us in LIFE to be a testimony that He lives! He is alive and well and working – God is still in control!!!
If you don’t already, and today you would like to have a relationship with a God who can communicate with you and be part of your life (and protect you) – one who is full of mighty power and tender love, then please know that I have put the “A, B, C’s of Salvation” in my introduction.
