But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. —John 1:12

Jesus has all power. He was raised up with all power. The Holy Ghost was with the disciples, but Jesus said, "He shall be in you." When they were all together, Jesus met with them, and He opened their spiritual minds. "He breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost" (John 20:22). They received Him, and became partakers of the divine nature. They received the gift of God, were enlightened, and cried out "My Lord and my God." No one ever had that experience before that time. They were sons of God by the new birth. "Yea, for the rebellious also." Eternal life is the most important of all gifts. For without this gift you can never get inside the pearly gates.

When the sinner stops his rebellion and repents, God gives him faith to accept Christ. God gives him power to become a son of God, who are born, not of man or of the will of men, or of flesh and blood, but by the power of God. He is then no longer a rebel, but a son, for he has received the gift of God and has been born of the spiritual family of God. His name has been written in the family record by the finger of God, and it has been said, "this man was born in Zion." He has the finished work on Calvary for sin and uncleanness. He is now a child of God, ready for any or all of the gifts of the Pentecostal baptism and power. He is God's man.

How I trust You, Jesus, for salvation! How I
rejoice in being Your child. Amen.
