Bible Verses

John 17:2 Even as You have given Him authority over all flesh to give eternal life to all whom You have given Him. (3) And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Him whom You have sent, Jesus Christ.

Words of Ministry

When I was young, I was told that eternal life was just a blessing in the future. Eternal life is divine life with a
special function葉o know God and Christ. Every life has its function. The function of a dog’s life is barking, the
function of a bird’s life is flying… The function of the divine life is to know God. God and Christ are divine. To
know the divine Person we need the divine life, Since the believers are born with the divine life, they know God and
Christ.

Hebrews 8:11 says that there is no need to teach any New Testament believers to know God. Why? Because every New
Testament believer knows God. New Testament believers have the divine life, and the divine life is the life that knows
God. We do not need to teach a dog to bark, because the dog’s life has the barking function. Likewise, since we have the
divine life, we do not need to be taught to know God, for the function of the divine life is to know God and Christ. Oh,
that I may know Christ! We all may know Christ because we have the divine life, the life whose function is to know God
and Christ.
