Your Life Changes When You Become a Child of God

We are all born into God’s grace as His children. Yet, when our brain is old enough to reason and we are subsequently exposed to the word of God, His grace is lifted as we become aware of the stain of Adam and Eve’s ‘original sin,’ that (due to our new awareness) we are now charged with getting it eliminated from our soul.

We can’t do that. We must come to God in prayer and petition Him for our salvation that He provides through the cleansing blood of His Son. Then we receive and hold onto that gift with faith, which then God accepts as payment in full for our sins; and we are once again His children. The only thing then that God asks, is that we publicly profess our faith (via baptism) and live out our days by adhering to His word to the best of our ability.

The most fabulous part? Your life changes…

You have the Creator of the Universe surrounding you on all sides through any situation:

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper…” Is. 54:17 NKJV

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” Is. 43:2, 3. ESV

Not even death will be able to hold onto you:

He will swallow up death [and abolish it] for all time. And the Lord GOD will wipe away tars from all faces, and He will take away the disgrace of His people from all the earth; for the LORD has spoken. Is. 25:8 AMP

Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! For your dew is a dew of light, and the earth will give birth to the dead. Is. 26:19 ESV

Even the very universe we occupy will be changed for the better for God’s children – a place without war and a home, with God Himself in it:

“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth…” Is. 65:17 NKJV

…nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. Is. 2:4 NKJV

The sun shall be no more your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give you light, but the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Is. 60.19 ESV

What other big change comes to your life when you regain your status as a child of God? The ever-present Son of God stands by your side.

I have been using the prophet Isaiah’s Holy Spirit-Inspired revelations thus far. Let’s see God reveal Jesus through the prophet 700 years before Christ’s incarnate birth:

“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.” Is. 7:14 NKJV

The only virgin birth ever recorded in the Bible is the birth of Jesus. It was significant because only that way was Jesus able to be born without the stain of Adam’s sin.

‘Immanuel’ means ‘God is with us.’ Next, Isaiah shows us the changes that Christ will make in the lives of God’s children:

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them light has shined. Is. 9:2 NKJV

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom to order it and establish it with judgment and justice for that time forward, even forever. Is. 9:6, 7. NKJV

So, Jesus will bring the light of God to His children whom have suffered at the hands of the god of this world (Satan), and will establish an eternal kingdom of peace and righteousness for all of them. Also, we see that being in the presence of Christ will be like being with God Himself.

Jesus also cleans house for the children of God:

…He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked. Is. 11:4 NKJV

The judgment of God will be given to Christ – who sifts the world at the end of time; and those who do not love God will not inhabit paradise. It is strictly for the children of God – a place of eternal peace, light and salvation. Praise God! These are good changes…

Goodnight and God bless.

What Makes the Children of God Special?

It’s not because we are better than anyone else. God loves all people equally:

For God shows no partiality [no arbitrary favoritism; with Him one person is not more important than another.] Rm. 2:11 AMP

Every human being that has ever existed or that ever will, starts out as a child of God. You’re created that way because God loves you so much. However, there will come a time in your life (if someone exposes you to who God is and you are mature enough to process that information), when you will have to make a choice whether to actively seek God if you want to remain His child.

Why? It’s because when you become aware of God’s salvation, the generational sin-taint that Adam and Eve brought upon themselves and passed it down to all generations, manifests in you as well, and it must be removed by the atoning blood of Christ.

Your choice to seek after God and subsequently receive His salvation through His Son has eternal consequences. You must accept God while you still draw breath in this life. Given that no one knows when that last breath will come, it is imperative that you make that choice today. You may not have a ‘tomorrow;’ and then the chance of being a child of God is lost to you forever.

Everyone has the potential to become a child of God, but they must first establish a relationship with Him to receive that mantle – by confessing their sins, repenting, entering into a salvation relationship with Christ by faith and do their best to live by His word. Then and only then, will they be transformed from a human being back into your original lineage as a child of God.

Does that make you better than someone who does not make that choice? No. What making the choice for God and Jesus does, is that it removes any barriers that prevent God’s love from reaching you. That makes you ‘special’ in His eyes because of the new ‘love reciprocity’ in your holy relationship with Him.

God chooses those who choose Him, not for their special qualities, but simply because they loved Him back – just like He did for His children in the desert with Moses:

For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all peoples who are on the face of the earth. It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the LORD set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples, but it is because the LORD loves you… Dt. 7:6 – 8. ESV

God accepts us not because we are superior, but because we make an ongoing choice to be holy:

Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments… Dt. 7:9 NKJV

Being a child of God has its advantages:

And because you listen to these rules and keep them and do them, the LORD your God will keep with you the covenant and the steadfast love that he swore to your fathers. He will love you, bless you, and multiply you…You shall be blessed above all peoples. Dt. 7:12 – 14. ESV

We get to live a blessed life! Look at how God blessed His ‘first children’ during their exit to the Promised Land:

And you shall remember the whole way that the LORD your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he…fed you with manna…that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but lives why every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. Your clothing did not wear out on you and your foot did not swell these forty years. Dt. 8:2 – 4. ESV

For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land…in which you will lack nothing. Dt. 8;7, 9. ESV

God steers you on a path that leads you to your greatest good. With God, it’s always about the love. He provides you with your best life when you partner with Him – letting nothing stand in His way of giving it to you:

Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours…No man shall be able to stand against you. Dt. 11:24, 25. NKJV

And there you shall eat before the LORD your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your households, in all that you undertake, in which the LORD your God has blessed you. Dt. 12:7 ESV

Finally, a child of God not only enjoys a blessed life, but he or she is also guaranteed an eternal life of complete love – gathered up at the end of time by Jesus Himself:

“Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:’ Mt. 25:34 NKJV

Choose to be a child again…

Goodnight and God bless.
