Hi
Moving on

       They did not understand that he had been speaking to them about the Father. So Jesus said to them, ?When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own authority, but speak just as the Father taught me.
John 8:27-‬28 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.8.27-28.ESV     


Still the Jews did not believe him so our Lord points them to the crucifixion when he would be lifted up on the cross and would die for the sins of the world but even then there were many that would not believe especially those of the ruling classes.
Again he tells them that everything he says every word comes from the Father he can say nothing on his own authority everything comes down from the Father and this applies to the whole of scripture.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
 Moving on

  And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.? As he was saying these things, many believed in him.
John 8:29-‬30 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.8.29-30.ESV           


The Father sent his only begotten son  Jesus Christ into the world to save sinners and he did not leave him alone but was with him every step of the way the reason being Christ was obedient to everything the Father asked f him even death on the cross.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

       So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, ?If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.?
John 8:31-‬32 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.8.31-32.ESV             


Here our Lord gives some very good advice not only to the Jews but to us as well we must abide in his word we must live in it it has to be a big part of our life we must listen to what it say and do what it says and let it guide us in our daily life and it will give us eternal life.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

     They answered him, ?We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ?You will become free??? Jesus answered them, ?Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. I know that you are offspring of Abraham; yet you seek to kill me because my word finds no place in you. I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father.?
John 8:33-‬38 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.8.33-38.ESV     


Here our Lord explains to the Jews they are slaves to sin they wanted to kill him but the law says thou shalt not kill by just thinking it they were breaking the law which is sin.
But he could set them free from sin by paying the penalty for sin by dying a horrible death on the cross and by so doing is able to offer the forgiveness of sin which sets them and us free from sin.
And this can be achieved by obedience to the words he has given us which he received from the Father.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

     They answered him, ?Abraham is our father.? Jesus said to them, ?If you were Abraham?s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did.
John 8:39-‬40 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.8.39-40.ESV       
of

The works of Abraham was obedience he obeyed God he did everything God said and Christ had come from the Father but they would not believe him.
We have the same problem today there are untold mullions who do not believe in the God of the bible the net is a good way to reach out to people you never know who will read your post and always try to give a few verses from Gods word.

    For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
Hebrews 4:12-‬13 ESV

Hi
Moving on

      You are doing the works your father did.? They said to him, ?We were not born of sexual immorality. We have one Father?even God.? Jesus said to them, ?If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me.
John 8:41-‬42 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.8.41-42.ESV     


The Father mentioned here of course is the devil he has done everything in his power to destroy Israel but God has always kept his promise he always brings them back from total destruction even today we see Israel back on the world map.
And we in this day and age can be absolutely positiv that he will fulfil all his promises to those who love and look forward to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So we must love the Father and the son and each other and our enemies it is Love that will totally defeat evil.
Christ was sent into the world to destroy evil and he did this by the sacrifice of himself and this because the Father and the son loved us.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

     Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father?s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.?
John 8:43-‬47 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.8.43-47.ESV     


They did not understand him they preferred to believe what men said instead of what God said the same problem we have in the world today.
Our Lord likens them to their father the devil who says was a murderer from the beginning reminds us of Cain he was the first murderer and this story would be played out when Israel the oldest son kills  Christ the youngest son.
So Israel prefers to listen to there father the devil the father of lies so that when Christ came and told them the truth they would not believe him.
So lets make sure we believe and follow the word of God which leads to eternal life

Love and Peace

Hi Moving on

     The Jews answered him, ?Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?? Jesus answered, ?I do not have a demon, but I honor my Father, and you dishonor me. Yet I do not seek my own glory; there is One who seeks it, and he is the judge. Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death.?
John 8:48-‬51 ESVmon
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.8.48-51.ESV       


Here the Jews accuse Jesus of having a demon which he denied they just would not accept the truth they chose to believe what their priests and academics had said and interpreted the scriptures they had believed what man had said and not what God had said.
We see here that Christ had come into the world to glorify the Father who will be the judge.
So if we will have eternal life let us make sure we keep the words of God by reading his word on a daily basis.

Love and Peace
Dave
