In the Middle (1 John 5:6-8)Tommy Boring, November 16, 2014
Part of the Does He Abide Within? series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Through Jesus is the only way of salvation. Do you really believe that this man called Jesus is the Son of God? Do you realize that our time, the year, is based on Jesus's birth and death? John the Baptist came from water only but Jesus didn't come from water only but by blood as well. There is nothing in the world that will define truth like Jesus Christ. There are three that bear witness of the Son of God. The Father is the first that bears witness. During the baptism of Jesus, His Father spoke down and said that Jesus was His son. God also confirmed Jesus during the transfiguration. The Word also declares Jesus as God in the flesh. The Spirit also confirms Jesus as the son of God. The Holy Spirit came down and caused Mary to be pregnant for the birth of Christ. Also during the baptism of Jesus, the Spirit of God came down and rested upon Jesus to declare that He was His son. Just as the declared Gods son, Jesus Christ there are also three in earth that bear witness with Him. The spirit which are things that can not be touched but are real, our soul, feelings, etc. if you have been saved, you have the Spirit of God in you. Jesus also had the spirit during His death as He gave up the Ghost. Just as Jesus gave up the spirit, we will as well at our death and it will go back to God. The water, baptism, also bears witness here on earth. Being baptized will not get you into heaven but it's important as an outward declaring of Christ. The last is the blood because it was shed on earth. The blood was shed because without it being shed there is no remission of sin. It also washes away our sins during salvation because no one and nothing else's blood can do this. Just as during the last supper, the wine was used to represent His blood.

1 John 5:6-8
6This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. (KJV)
