The Holy Spirit imparted KNOWLEDGE that Jesus Christ is Elohim-I AM-God is KEY to the validation of one’s salvation…
Many wander through this life constrained by Time and physics and flesh wondering if they’re saved, am I going to Heaven or Hell? Some having professed a faith in Jesus Christ as “Lord” while others are offended by the Name of Jesus. The Holy Spirit working through Paul in Romans 8:16 tells us that,
“The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God,” Romans 8:16 (NASB)
and Jesus said “Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am, you will die in your sins.” Gospel of John 8:24 (NASB)
It is possible to enter into covenant relationship with the Father by grace through faith in the Son, Jesus Christ, initially apart from the knowledge that Jesus is Deity, God, but once the Holy Spirit takes-up residence within the redeemed by faith in Jesus (Ephesians 1:13-14) and the process of sanctification is begun (1 John 2:27), the Deity of Jesus, the necessity for same, will be irrefutable in the life of the Christian whose faith is legitimate and their relationship with the Father guaranteed by the Spirit.
In other words, if you consider yourself redeemed from your sin, saved by faith in Jesus, pardoned from death in Hell, yet you don’t see the necessity for Messiah’s deity or you don’t believe Jesus is Elohim, our Creator, our God our I AM THAT I AM…you are absent the Holy Spirit and if you’re absent the Spirit you are NOT redeemed, you remain in your sin and you are destined to the “second death” in Perdition; therefore, seek the Spirit’s wisdom while you possess the breath of life and know Jesus as I AM.
