Only the Spirit of God has authority to testify who His children are. No religion or human being is capable of this.
Only parents can recognize their children.
This is what happened on Mount Hermon.
Only God the Father, through the Spirit, glorifies, recognizes, testifies, witnesses, and confirms His children.
This is why there is an unspeakable joy when a person is born of the Spirit.
The peace of the Spirit of Peace is the first sign, because all sinful accusations are erased. The person feels clean, pure, washed on the inside.
Another sign of the Spirit that comes along with peace is joy.
It is not an ordinary joy, a momentary pleasure, or something similar. This joy has nothing to do with the joy of this world. Instead, it is an inexplicable joy, an extraordinary joy, that only those who have experienced it know what it is, but aren’t able to describe it. This is why, the person cries with joy and rejoices by crying.
Oh! What a day!
Oh! What sublime moments!
The Son was honored by the Father before being humiliated by the world.
Now, through Jesus, the Father honors His other children who are being begotten by the Holy Spirit.
The nobility of peace and joy despises all the values of this world.
Absolutely everything! 100%!
The joy of being called a son or daughter by the Father compensates for any tribulation. For this reason, the apostle says:
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter. Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8.35-39
True madness of faith.
Probably, many will not understand while reading this text…
Only those who’ve had this experience can appreciate the meaning of being a child of God.
This is My beloved Son. Hear Him! Luke 9.35
