Confessing Jesus to be Divine

Do we understand that by acknowledging Jesus with our lives we enter into the heavenly space?


Luke 12:8

To acknowledge Jesus is to not be ashamed of Jesus. To stand with God regardless of how the world may view Jesus. To be with Jesus is to enter into communion with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. Essentially, we enter into the divine realm.

To confess Jesus not just with our words, but with our hearts, our minds, by how we live out our lives is to join ourselves to Jesus. Once we are connected to the divine, is it no wonder we enter into the place of angels? Once, with Jesus, that we’re in the same realm as angels, how could God not acknowledge knowing us? Once we’re with Jesus, how could Jesus not boast of us being in union with God?

The opposite then holds true too. If we never live out our lives in accordance with Jesus, with his teachings, mission, and love, then how can we enter into the divine space? If we never enter into communion with God how can we be divinized? Is it a wonder why Jesus would not be able to acknowledge us among the angels of God?

Let us stress the point that with Jesus we can be joined with the Father and Holy Spirit. That would be enough but also once in communion with God we enter into the divine community of angels. We can enter into the divine family of God. All we need to do is begin accepting Jesus into our hearts, minds, and follow after Jesus with our cross.
