SONS OF GOD I



For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Romans 8:19

There are sons of God in hiding or hibernation in this world.

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

1John 3:1

The fact that we have the privilege to be referred to as sons of God is an explicit expression of the Father's love for us. But we can only best appreciate this conferment of the name sons of God when we come to really understand who a son of God is and what it actually means to become a son of God.

Then King Nebuchadnezzar, full of fear and wonder, got up quickly, and said to his wise men, Did we not put three men in cords into the fire? and they made answer and said to the king, True, O King. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Daniel 3:24-25

King Nebuchadnezzar had some form of revelation about the son of God in the fire.

From scriptures, four personalities are referred to as the son or sons of God: Angels, Adam, Jesus Christ, and Believers. In this blog series, I shall be taking you through each of these persons and my real intention is to show you who you really are in the sight of God.

A son refers to the identity of a male offspring due to his personal and special relationship with his parent.

SONS OF GOD I: ANGELS



Angels are spirit beings and yet very real. Spirits are as real and tangible as any physical thing if not more real.

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

Job 1:6

Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.

Job 2:1

When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Job 38:7

Sons of God gathered and Satan also was there. He also showed up in his capacity as a son of God. If Satan is an angel, a fallen one at that, and a son of God, then angels are sons of God in their own right. Angels are considered sons in the sense that they owe their existence to God, have a personal and special relationship with God, and definitely possess some key characteristics of God.

Then King Nebuchadnezzar, full of fear and wonder, got up quickly, and said to his wise men, Did we not put three men in cords into the fire? and they made answer and said to the king, True, O King. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men lose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. Nebuchadnezzar spake and said, Blessed, be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered the servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and have yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.

King Nebuchadnezzar saw the son of God in the fire with the three Hebrew boys he had thrown into the fiery fire. In his continual expression of admiration towards the God of heaven, he makes plain that the son of God he referred to was an angel of God.

THEY ARE SPIRIT BEINGS

And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

Hebrews 1:7

Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

Psalms 104:4

And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

2Kings 2:11

And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

2Kings 6:17

THEY EXCEL IN STRENGTH

Bless the LORD, ye his angels that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Psalms 103:20

THEY LISTEN AND ACT ON THE VOICE OF THE WORD

Bless the LORD, ye his angels that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Psalms 103:20

THEY ARE MINISTERS

Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to do service for the sake of them that shall inherit salvation?

Hebrews 1:14

Angels as sons of God do the pleasure of God all through their existence. As heirs of salvation, angels have the task of ministering for us. For angels to minister for you from today, you ought to possess salvation by giving your life to Jesus Christ.

Please pray this prayer out now:

‘Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I am a sinner, I cannot help myself. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with your precious blood. Deliver me from sin and Satan, to serve the living God. Today, Lord Jesus, I accept you as my Lord and my Saviour. Thank you for saving me! Now I know, I am born again!’

 If you have prayed this prayer in faith, you are born again, saved, a child of God.

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

1John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. As simple as it may seem to you, you are saved or born again by this prayer of faith. You have been restored to sonship. Get a bible if you don’t have one yet and start reading it for yourself. May the Holy Spirit also be your guide.
