ROMANS 8:16

ROMANS 8:16 “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God”

 

HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE A CHILD of GOD?

HOW DOES THE SPIRIT BEAR WITNESS WITH YOUR HUMAN LIVING SPIRIT TO CONFIRM HIS PRESENCE AND LET KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT THAT YOU ARE ONE OF HIS CHILDREN?

AT VARIOUS POINTS AFTER HAVING STATED ONE’S BELIEF, OR EVEN IF IT WAS NOT STATED VERBALLY BUT A FULL COMMITMENT WAS MADE FROM WITHIN THE INDIVIDUAL’S HEART, THERE WILL BE A MANIFESTATION OF THE PRESENCE AND POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN MANIFEST HIS PRESENCE IN AN INFINITE VARIETY OF WAYS, SO IT IS NOT EVEN POSSIBLE TO ASSUME TO KNOW HOW EACH INDIVIDUAL WILL BE MET BY HIS MANIFESTATION; BUT WHATEVER THAT MANIFESTATION IS, THERE SHOULD BE AN INNER JOY, INNER PEACE ACCOMPANYING THAT PRESENCE AND IT WILL BE VERY CLEAR THAT THIS IS NOTHING THAT ANYTHING/ANYONE ELSE CAN IMPERSONATE; IT IS SUPERNATURAL AND VERY AUTHENTIC.

IT IS THE FULL SENSE OF BELONGING THROUGH HIS ADOPTION THAT ENABLES THE BELIEVER TO CRY OUT “ABBA!.” ONLY A TRUE CHILD OF GOD, FULLY ADOPTED & GRAFTED IN WOULD BE ABLE TO DO THAT. A TRULY BORN-AGAIN CHILD OF GOD KNOWS DEEP WITHIN THAT THERE HAS BEEN A SUPERNATURAL DELIVERY FROM WITHIN, EVEN THOUGH THE OUTER CHANGES HAVE NOT YET OCCURRED, AND BE AN ONGOING, LIFETIME PROCESS.
