Is it possible for God to live inside mortal man?

May 10th, 2012 Comments off

This was the question I was getting from Vivian a Jehovah Witness girl I met while sharing Christ on the streets this week.
While I was quoting 2 Corinthians 13 verse 5 where it says we need to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith, examining ourselves looking for what? Is Jesus Christ the un-created one living/dwelling in us. As we need to receive Him so we can become Children of God. John 1v 12 says just that. But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

See Jehovah’s Witness folks and the likes of the Mormon’s too, simply don’t receive Christ and don’t have Him dwelling in them. For one their doctrine about who Jesus is, is too far removed from that as presented by the Holy Spirit through the bible. Its says in 2 John v 9 that if our doctrine about Christ is not correct we have not got the Son (dwelling in us) and if we have not got the Son we have not got the Father either.

So while I kept pressing Vivian about her need to receive Christ, she was insisting that the message I was presenting of Christ in her made no sense. See Jehovah’s Witness rely a lot on reasoning to understand the bible. They even have a book called reasoning from the scriptures. She was saying how could Christ live inside mortal man?

That is a common question that I receive from the JW’s. Yet the biblical response is that unless Christ is in us we cant belong to God or even know God. As man is fallen and born in sin. When we receive Christ His rightness is given to us so we can come to God…….

There is no other way.

I Corinthians 1 v18 tells us that the preaching of the cross is foolish to those that are perishing….

Love and truth out of Africa.
