The Holy Spirit solely initiated His supernatural action upon the womb of the virgin Mary (1) so she would conceive and The Son of God would be physically born in a human body. “The Word became flesh”. Undiminished Deity in Perfect humanity-The GODMAN.
The Holy Spirit solely initiated the supernatural action upon my dead soul (1) to regenerate it so I would be spiritually “born-from-above” [born again, saved] and have eternal life.
ETERNAL LIFE – THE LIFE OF GOD – REVEALED IN JESUS CHRIST*** is given by God’s grace through faith to me through regeneration by The Holy Spirit.
JESUS-THE LIGHT**** IS THE MANIFESTATION OF THE LIFE OF GOD. “In Him was life and that life was the light of men.” Jn.1:4,
therefore, we understand the truth that Jesus is the Source of spiritual life and spiritual light.
