by Him

INDEPENDENCE

THE PROBLEMS                             

and his own received him not.

A POWER                                              

to them gave he power

A POSITION                                         

to become the sons of God,

A PERSON                                            

even to them that believe on his name

THE RESULTS V.13

A NEW BIRTH

NOT BY DESCENT                        

Which were born, not of blood,

NOT BY DESIRE                             

nor of the will of the flesh,

NOT BY DESIGN                            

nor of the will of man,

which is in the bosom of the Father,                   

ILLUMINATION     

he hath declared him.
