Nobody can say, “I can’t know God.” With eternal life, you have that right and that possibility. You can train and educate that life just like you can educate someone that has the human life. You can go to school to become an engineer, a medical doctor, a banker or a lawyer. What can you become in the spirit? You will choose whether you want to live only under the carnal law (the Ten Commandments) or also in the power of an endless life.
In the Old Testament, they had laws that were written outside (physically) but in the New Testament, God says with eternal life, “I will write my laws in your heart.” Do you know what that means? Knowing intuitively what is wrong and what is right. When Jesus was on earth, the bible says he did all things well. How will that be said about you in your work place and you will not get a promotion?
David, under the covenant behaved himself so wisely that even Saul was afraid of him. Jesus said “…..If anyone slaps you on one cheek, turn the other cheek…” But what happens if he slaps me? You become his leader. Jesus Christ was not giving us a law to become weak, He was telling us “don’t go down to his level. Bring him up to your level.” Somebody decides not to greet you and avoids you, you call his name and greet him properly.
You need to run away from sin because sin opens you up to the satanic life and poisons the life of God inside you. When Adam and Eve lost eternal life, in dying, they died. If you keep servicing the eternal life inside you, you will keep living. “……With long life will I satisfy you and show you the salvation of the Lord.” That is the power of the life of God. A man that is not born again does not have eternal life. We come to receive eternal life when we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal savior at salvation and that candle that was burned out when Adam fell becomes lighted again for you.
