KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… `If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him… Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?’...” (Jesus Christ, in John 14:7, 9, the Holy Bible).

BIBLE IMMERSION AS A WAY TO KNOW WHO JESUS REALLY IS: One inspiration that is held ever-so dearly by members of the Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo (or AND KNK, Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ) Church is their being different from other Christian believers as a result of their having concrete proof from the Bible that Jesus Christ is God and Savior, and is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

This proceeds from the assiduous and regular immersion on the Bible that they carry out everyday in their lives. AND KNK members are required to read their Bible everyday, and, if they have the time, to attend Bible immersion sessions every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The objective of this regular or daily Bible immersion is to enable each and every AND KNK to fully understand the Biblical proofs which show that Jesus is God and Savior, and is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, so that each of them can rise anywhere, anytime, and explain the basis of their faith in Jesus.

AND KNK: MAKING THE BIBLE UNDERSTOOD BY THE LOWLY: That kind of a discipline in understanding the Bible presents both a great but challenging difficulty and a tremendous blessing. Indeed, it is truly difficult to be making the Bible understood by people who largely had any formal education, having finished only secondary education at the most, who are in reality unfamiliar with the concepts of daily reading and breaking down complex ideas about spiritual matters.

But this kind of an effort also brings great blessings in that, not only are we who are trying to explain why Jesus is God and Savior, and God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, able to gain a deeper understanding of the mystery of Jesus, as God who assumed the form of man, with flesh and blood, on account of His great love for His creations.

Truly, there is a wonderful blessing in seeing the transformation of ordinary and unlettered men and women, including children who have just been weaned out from their mothers’ breasts, into firebrand proclaimers of the truth that Jesus is God and Savior, and, as a consequence of their newfound status in the presence of God, snatch away those who have already been destined for hell on account of their lack of faith.

THE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CONFIRM HE IS GOD THE FATHER: Among the proofs that AND KNK members possess, based on John 14 of the Bible, is the proof that the disciples of Jesus, Thomas and Philip, presented, based on their conversations with Jesus, that He is Himself the Father. For Thomas, for instance, Jesus told him that anyone who has seen Him has already seen the Father.

For Philip, on the other hand, his request to Jesus was, “show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” The answer of Jesus here was truly as earthshaking as His answer to Thomas: “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.” Truly, there could be no mistaking what Jesus meant here, as what He had been trying to explain earlier: He and the Father are one.

These proofs from Thomas and Philip confirm that Jesus is God the Father who came down to earth from heaven, in the form of man, with flesh and blood, because He of His great love for all of us. His purpose was to receive in Himself the penalty for our sins, and therefore give us forgiveness and a place in Paradise, but only if we accept, receive, and believe Him as our God and Savior, as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
