Faith, The Lifestyle of Saints
Believe On or Believe In?
Believe in someone/something, to think that someone or something exists; i.e., I don't believe in the existence of devils. She does not believe in her husband's words. Believe on, means to accept implicitly as an object of theological trust or obedience; to have faith on.
The Apostle John describes this instruction and distinction becomes clear when we inspect the difference of believing on or believing on someone/something. He points to the "things" that he had previously been teaching on. The things: your birth as a overcomer; your heritage, our love and His commandments, the overcoming power of the believer of Jesus Christ, just to highlight a few of the "things" mentioned in 1 John 5:1-12.
When we mediate on these "things" then the expansion of air in the vacuum of space become a matter of physics and causes an unusual movement in our atmosphere, it changes things. The true matter of belief is one of faith, and Faith in the Son of God.
1 John 5:13
These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
The Holy One, Kadosh (Isaiah 40:25); we thank You for the distinction of believing on and believing in our Savior. We praise You for the Truth that moves us beyond our comfort zone. We decree and declare blessings upon those who search the Word for clarity and understanding, so that; the power of the Truth will bring a disturbance in the atmosphere of complicity to the building of the Kingdom. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
