1Jo 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
1Jo 5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
1Jo 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
1Jo 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
1Jo 5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
1Jo 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
1Jo 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
1Jo 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
1Jo 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (KJV)

We show that in "earth" we place an identity in our suffix and in "heaven" we place the identity in our operand of our operator cogx(G)

We would place three in heaven, The Father 'G', the word L(G) and HG(G) as the Holy Ghost or faith perfected. (The Lamb as slain before the throne.)

Whereas we would place three in earth, The Spirit, 'U', the water "L(G) is able to be obeyed" and the blood "L(G) is fulfilled"

The former "heavenly" triple is not so hard to discern in place, for cogx(G) is "God exists", cogx(L(G)) is "God is identified as the God of Israel" and cogx(HG(G)) is "God is consistent", plus we have from the presence of U that HG(G) "is consistent "<=> L(G) "is consistent" <=> G "is consistent". Thus they are equivalent in that they "are one".

The latter triple is somewhat harder to make sense of :

The spirit testifies to cogU(G), that G is consistent and may be conceived of properly by us as equally as "U" may do.

The water, that L(G) is possible, shows us that Christ in coming to fulfil that law did so to identify "G" as the God of the people of Israel. This obedience to God is the water that washes away our sins. This identifies the reciprocation of G~x and x~G in us by our equivalence relation.

Lastly, the "blood", that L(G) is fulfilled and Christ has redeemed His people is readily ascertained - it is finished.

These three agree in one, that is there is only one possibility for "G" in the three. That is;

cogU(G) and L(G) completed imply 'G' (God) is the Father of Jesus Christ and the God of Israel.

We may assert that cogx(G), but indeed, cogH(G) => cogU(G) is greater! (By the law and the prophets.)

How do we find proof of eternal life in these three?

We find that God raised Christ if we may use the modus tollens of cogU(¬x) => P(cogx(G)) with 'x' as Christ.

Now, G is found uniquely to be the God of Jesus Christ as in all obedience to L(G) and the testimony of the spirit, cogU(G). So if Christ is raised, then we are truly redeemed by the "one true God". We may likewise place our faith in the God of Jesus Christ.

In placing the consistency of HG(G) for ∃G (or of L(G) for ∃G) we may on the faith of Christ place our belief, as upon Christ's faith, not just our own. We may do so every bit as confidently as in placing our faith on the law fulfilled in Christ. (For we only know God in part.) (We may state we have faith "once removed".)

So if our God is the God of Jesus Christ, then He is the God of Israel and is the one God whom may raise us to life blameless.

"cogx(G)" then; (as under three that bear record on Earth) is such as to refine the operand to that witnessed by U, of the one God 'G'. These three then agree in one; cogU(G). We have "the more sure word of prophecy".
