And this is the record that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son – 1 John 5:11
The Christian is one who has received eternal life. Eternal life is the life and nature of God, which is in Jesus Christ. This is the life that Jesus brought to the world, and He imparts it to the spirit of the one who believes in Him.
Unfortunately, many don’t know what this glorious eternal life is; its impact in, and upon, the one that has it! They think eternal life is that life which you get when you get to heaven. But that’s not true. The one who doesn’t have eternal life on earth wouldn’t even go to heaven. John said, “These things have I written unto you…that YE MAY KNOW that YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE…” (1 John 5:13). Why did he emphasize eternal life as our present-hour reality? Why is it so important that we have and live with the consciousness that we have the God-life now?
It’s because of the impact and implication of that God-life in, and for, the one who has it. For example, cancer or any other disease or infirmity shouldn’t thrive in the body of the one who has eternal life. This doesn’t mean that you may not be “attacked” by cancer; but that’s what it is: “an attack!” You don’t let it stay! You declare, “I have eternal life! Therefore, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, get out of my body! I refuse to accommodate you!” The moment you say that, it stops growing and starts shrinking, until it passes out of your body. This is the effect of eternal life in you.
Irrespective of the pain you might be feeling, or the situation you find yourself in, keep declaring, “Eternal life is at work in me!” This life which you’ve received isn’t for nothing! Refuse to accept disease and infections in your body; refuse anything that’s of the devil, because the life in you is the God-life; it’s impregnable.

Confession (Faith’s Proclamation)
Eternal life is at work in me, in every fibre of my being, in every cell of my blood, and in every bone of my body! I live transcendently above sickness, disease, and infirmities! I’m superior to Satan and the elements of this world, because divine life works in me! Glory to God!
