Nations as GOD's children

 

Matthew 5:9

King James Version

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: 

for they shall be called the children of God.


Who are children of GOD?

What does it take for a nation to be a child of GOD?

What does the Bible say who children of GOD are?

Proverbs 3:11-12

King James Version

11 My son, 

despise not the chastening of the Lord; 

neither be weary of his correction:

12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; 

even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.


Matthew 18:1-5

King James Version

18 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, 

saying, 

Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, 

and set him in the midst of them,

3 And said, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Except ye be converted, 

and become as little children, 

ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself 

as this little child, 

the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And whoso shall receive 

one such little child in my name receiveth me.


John 1:12-13

King James Version

12 But as many as received him, 

to them gave he power to become the sons of God, 

even to them that believe on his name:

13 Which were born, 

not of blood, 

nor of the will of the flesh, 

nor of the will of man,

 but of God.


John 3:3-7

King James Version

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born again, 

he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, 

How can a man be born when he is old? 

can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, 

and be born?

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


Romans 8:1

King James Version

8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them 

which are in Christ Jesus, 

who walk not after the flesh, 

but after the Spirit.


Romans 8:14-15

King James Version

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, 

they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage 

again to fear; 

but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, 

whereby we cry, 

Abba, Father.


Romans 8:28-29

King James Version

28 And we know that all things work together for good 

to them that love God, 

to them who are the called according to his purpose.

29 For whom he did foreknow, 

he also did predestinate to be conformed 

to the image of his Son, 

that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.


Romans 8:30

King James Version

30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: 

and whom he called, them he also justified: 

and whom he justified, them he also glorified.


Romans 8:16-17

King James Version

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, 

that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; 

heirs of God, 

and joint-heirs with Christ; 

if so be that we suffer with him, 

that we may be also glorified together.


2 Corinthians 6:14-18

King James Version

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: 

for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? 

and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? 

or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? 

for ye are the temple of the living God; 

as God hath said, I will dwell in them, 

and walk in them; and I will be their God, 

and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, 

and be ye separate, 

saith the Lord, 

and touch not the unclean thing; 

and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, 

and ye shall be my sons and daughters, 

saith the Lord Almighty.

there is neither male nor female: 

for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

King James Version

29 And if ye be Christ's, 

then are ye Abraham's seed, 

and heirs according to the promise.

4 But when the fulness of the time was come, 

God sent forth his Son, 

made of a woman, 

made under the law,

5 To redeem them that were under the law, 

that we might receive the adoption of sons.

6 And because ye are sons, 

God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, 

crying, Abba, Father.

7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, 

but a son; 

and if a son, 

then an heir of God through Christ.


Ephesians 5:1-2

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, 

the sons of God, 

without rebuke, 

in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, 

among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

16 Holding forth the word of life; 

that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, 

that I have not run in vain, 

neither laboured in vain.


1 Peter 2:1-3

King James Version

2 Wherefore laying aside all malice, 

and all guile, 

and hypocrisies,

2 As newborn babes, 

desire the sincere milk of the word, 

that ye may grow thereby:

3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.


1 John 2:28-29

King James Version

28 And now, little children, 

abide in him;

we may have confidence, 

and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

29 If ye know that he is righteous, 

ye know that every one that doeth righteousness 

is born of him.


1 John 3:1

because it knew him not.

That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, 

and love one another, 

as he gave us commandment.

24 And he that keepeth his commandments 

dwelleth in him, 

and he in him. 

And hereby we know that he abideth in us, 

by the Spirit which he hath given us.


1 John 5:1-5

is born of God: 

and every one that loveth him that begat 

loveth him also that is begotten of him.

when we love God, 

and keep his commandments.

3 For this is the love of God, 

that we keep his commandments: 

and his commandments are not grievous.

even our faith.

5 Who is he that overcometh the world, 

but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
