The Biblical Promises are “exceeding great and precious promises:” (2 Peter 1) “that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature ”
The Promises of God are Yes and Amen, they are for us TODAY. What can this mean?
That we might be partakers of the ‘Divine Nature?’
It depends on our Freewill, we might have Eternal life, with Jesus, if we choose correctly. (The might refers to where we will spend Eternal Life, not if).
It is by our Freewill, that we escape the corruption that is in the world, through lust.
We must choose to be diligent in adding to our Precious Faith:
Virtue; knowledge; temperance; patience; godliness; brotherly kindness; and charity. (Love)
Our Freewill choices, are what makes us, a man after God’s heart, a friend of God, a Disciple of Christ.
It is our Freewill, that allows us to believe and to do the Work of the Misistry. Peter tells us, “if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
We have accepted this Precious Faith.
We should be partaking of His Divine Nature. The Divine, (Godly, Good,)
1 a : the inherent character or basic constitution of a person or thing : essence
b : disposition, temperament
We should be partakers of, God’s Nature. Jesus, healed, saved, raised the dead, and gave us this Power, and, expects us to do the same.
That is the only requirement. “I believe Lord, help my unbelief.”
How do we grow our Faith?
We are all given a measure of Faith. The basic Faith, to believe Jesus, changes (saves), us
How do we build up pur Faith?
Diligently Studying His Word.
Praying His Word. (Pray Paul’s prayers, for Spiritual, not Worldly ends).
“This comes by Prayer and Fasting.”
We need to deny self, and learn to please God.
If we do these things, we will, grow, and the Lord will be with us, and let none of his words (the Lords), fall to the ground.
And all will know, we are established to be messengers of the Lord.
