    There are many god's and anti-christ's in the world : There is only one True God and that is Jesus Christ. Through Him we obtain eternal life : we will die in this life : but in all totality we are not dead , just our bodies die : When we are born again we never die !!! Isn't that totally AWESOME !!! Praise God for eternal life through Jesus Christ !!!!

    2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 1 John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come and even now already is it in the world. Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

    Hallelujah,knowing the true God and believing that the same God sent us Jesus Christ is eternal life,now the word says my people perish because of lack of knowledge meaning,if you dont know the true God and also believe in Him you will not have eternal life,therefore goes to the bottomless pit,wow Just knowing Him then i have eternal life,GLORY TO JESUS
  • Nonye
    verse 3 says that knowing God and Jesus Christ brings life eternal. Also verse 22 says that we should be one as Jesus Christ and God are one. this calls for unity in the body of Christ. unity in Spirit.
    my prayer is that God will make us one in Christ Jesus as He and God are one.
