That whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life."
Eternal life is that divine quality of life that has been given from heaven because we have believed in His only Son Jesus for our salvation. It's faith that brings us into this divine eternal substance of life. It's 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's 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. Psalm 46:4-5; John 7:38-39.
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. They experienced this reality by the manifestation of the divine life they could believe in Jesus and then enter into eternal life. it's the experience of His Presence that causes us to believe. John 6:44
It's the experience of the heart that one believe and enters into the Kingdom. It's not by intellectual pursuits or methods of convincing. It's only by the drawing of the Spirit and of the Father that a person can believe in Jesus and enter into a new realm of divine life. Jesus manifests divine life and then said things, but some of the crowds left Him, even though he has experienced the reality. So, Jesus never tried to convince any one that He was who He was. He just told them straight out who He was and gave them proofs of His divinity, which were the miracles, signs and wonders that He performed. The things He said to the Pharisees and religious people were words that would bring them in His favor. He was confrontational. He said hard things that made it hard for and offensive for people to follow Him.
But those who did believe in Jesus, 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 only the words that His Father gave Him to speak. For those who believes, they entered into eternal life in the Kingdom of God. For those who believe they are to continually experience this quality of life. Isaiah 12:3
It's 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.
