“Evidence of Who Are the Children of God”
No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister. 1 John 3:9-10
When a person wants to know what kind of person is a TRUE BELIEVER or a TRUE CHILD of God, they will WATCH them and LISTEN to them. When you become a TRUE CHILD of the ALMIGHTY GOD, you will exemplify the nature of God, which is the seed of God. When His nature is planted in your HEART, then you will show EVIDENCE of to whom you belong. And your OLD, SINFUL nature will go away, and you will receive a NEW nature.
Does this mean that the TRUE CHILD of the ALMIGHTY GOD does NOT SIN? No it does NOT mean that. The Apostle Paul, in his letter to the believers in Rome states,” I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.” In other words, Paul was indicating that he has two natures that indwells him. A sinful nature or the flesh, and another nature, the nature that God planted in his HEART, when he gave himself to the Lord Jesus Christ, who delivers him from his sins. Paul states in Romans 7:23, that in his inner being He DELIGHTS in God’s law; but the two natures war against each other, and God’s Holy Spirit which indwells Paul, brings CONVICTION into Paul’s HEART, and Paul must CONFESS his sins to God, in order to restore his FELLOWSHIP with his Heavenly Father.
The KEY to the differences between a TRUE BELIEVER and an UNBELIEVER is the fact that the TRUE BELIEVER will NOT CONTIUNE or PRACTICE sin, but will CONFESS their sins to God and ask for His FORGIVENESS. The UNBELIEVER will LIVE or PRACTICE DAILY their sins and not CONFESS them, unless they are being dealt with by the HOLY SPIRIT, and they come to God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING their sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL their HEART that Jesus died for them, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for them before God, then they must ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and TURN AWAY from their sins and TOWARD CHRIST, seeking FORGIVENESS of any sins they may have committed, and they MUST LOVE their brothers and sisters in the Lord.
This is how we know who are the TRUE CHILDREN OF GOD, and who are the TRUE CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL. The EVIDENCE is very plain to see. Which are you? Come to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and CONFESS your sins to Him, seek His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVE, WHOLEHEARTEDLY, that Jesus died for YOU, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and become a TRUE CHILD OF THE LIVING GOD. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
