1John 3:2 -- "Beloved, now are we the sons of God......"
We will not become the sons of God when we get to heaven. We are sons of God now. If we aren't sons of God here, we won't make it to heaven.
We must have within us the image that God has of us: then we will be enlightened and see that God's fullness will dwell in us as we pursue Jesus.
FEAR GIVES SUBSTANCE TO THINGS NOT DESIRED
Job 3:25 -- "For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me."
The words we speak create: (1) images either of faith based on the authority of God's Word or (2) fear based on our failure to believe and act of God's Word. Just as faith in God's word gives substance to things hoped for (desired), on the other hand, fear gives substance to things not desired.
The point is that every circumstance or situation life is subject to change if we are consistent to do what Jesus said in Mark 11:23,24; Luke 17:6; and John 15:7. But on the other hand, if we speak words of doubt, fear, and unbelief, we may establish bad situations and circumstances in our life forever.
Ephesians 4:29 -- "...Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers."
