Day 42 | FEBRUARY 11, 2021 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng


And what is it that God has said? That he has given us eternal life and that this life is in his Son. So whoever has God's Son has life; whoever does not have his Son, does not have life.

1 John 5:11-12 (TLB)

Is the Bible actually saying if you don’t have the son you don’t have life? This is a little misleading isolated from the meaning of the greek word that was used. There are three basic words for life in the greek, Bios, Psuche and Zoe. Bios is where we get the word Biology. It refers to the life of the physical body (Luke 8:14). From trees to animals and all that is living in the natural. Psuche refers to the soul-life. It refers to the psychological life of the human soul, which is the mind, emotion and will. It is where we get the word psychology (Matt 16:25).

Zoe (John 1:4) refers to the uncreated, eternal life of God, the divine life uniquely possessed by God. Any human alive without Christ has Psuche, at best they are but living soul. They are just existing in this world and heading to the grave. As we saw from our verse, they don’t have Zoe.

Zoe is the life of the creator that He allows his children to share in. That life, Zoe, turns a man into something else. It makes it possible for a man to be a life giving spirit, bringing life to dead situations. That man is able to dominate the various elements of nature like the wind, water, weather, the bios and the Psuche because it all originated from it (John 17:2). The man with Zoe also has authority over the devil and all his powers and cohorts by nature.

So John 1:4-5 (AMP) says: In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it]. Zoe is the unstoppable life. If you are in Christ Jesus, you have the unstoppable, glorious and the above only life of God.



I am in Christ Jesus so I have Life, the Zoe life, the divine life, the indestructible life. By Zoe, I am bigger than the Devil and all his powers and I reign over them in the earth. By Zoe, I am a life dispenser.
