John 3:15?That whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.?
Eternal life is that divine quality of life that has been given to us from heaven because we have believed in His only Son Jesus for our salvation. It is faith that brings us into this divine eternal substance of life. It is faith that will make that life a continual stream within us flowing forth to touch others. Faith releases that manifestation of eternal divine life. We are to continually be partaking of that life through His great and precious promises. We are constantly crossing over into new Kingdom discoveries and territory, the realities of heaven in this life. It is a life that is moving from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord. Through a continual entrance into His courts by the blood of His covenant in faith we are in a journey of experiential transformation becoming more and more like Jesus because we are continually seeking and seeing His face.
There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
Jesus manifested eternal life, the life of heaven. When He delivered people from demons, healed the sick, spoke the living Word from the Living Father people encountered the Kingdom of Heaven. They touched and experienced eternal life. This does not mean they entered into that life. But because they experienced the reality by manifestation of divine life they could believe in Jesus and then enter into eternal life. It is the experience of His Presence that causes us to believe.
No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.
It is the experience of the heart that one believes and enters into the Kingdom. It is not by intellectual pursuits or methods of convincing. It is only by the drawing of the Spirit and of the Father that one may believe in Jesus and enter into a new realm of divine life. Jesus manifest divine life and then said things the eliminated the crowds even though they experienced the reality. So Jesus never tried to convince anyone the He was who He was. He just told them straight out whom He was and gave them the proofs of His divinity, which were the miracles and wonders that He performed. The things He said to the Pharisees and religious people were not in any way words that would help to bring them ?in His favor?. He was confrontational. He said hard things like ?you must eat my flesh and drink my blood!? These were the kind of things that Jesus said that made it difficult and offensive to people to follow Him.
But those who did believe believed because of the evidences and manifestation of the Kingdom through His words and deeds, not because He was trying to build a kingdom on earth. He did nothing to please men but only His Father. He spoke the words that His Father gave Him to speak. For those who believed, they entered into eternal life in the Kingdom of God. For those who believe they are to continually experience this quality of life.
Therefore with joy you will draw water
From the wells of salvation.
It is the manifestation of His Presence that stirs our desire for more of Him. Continually draw from His Life today. Find the eternal qualities of His Kingdom manifest in you and to others by demonstration of that eternal life ? peace, joy, love, hope, faith, healing, miracles, wonders ? breaking out of the limitations of this life into the unlimited resources of His Kingdom Realm.
