Hi
Moving on

         The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him. And this was why the Jews were persecuting Jesus, because he was doing these things on the Sabbath. But Jesus answered them, ?My Father is working until now, and I am working.?
John 5:15-‬17 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.15-17.ESV     


Strange that the man having been healed by Jesus should then go and report him to the Jewish authorities but maybe he was meant to do that so our Lord could say       My Father is working until now, and I am working       Which of course means the Father had not yet rested because there is nothing in scripture which says the Father began work again after he rested so the Fathers sabbath rest is a future event and I say its Christs millennial reign after which the Father begins a new creation of heaven and earth.

Love and Peace

Hi

     This was why the Jews were seeking all the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.
John 5:18 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.18.ESV         


I think the trouble with the Jews was they were looking at the letter of the law and not looking at the one who had given the law.
Our Lord was working on a different time scale to the Jews the Fathers sabbath rest was still a future event it will be Christs millennial reign.

Love and Peace

Hi

   So Jesus said to them, ?Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father  does, that the Son does likewise.
John 5:19 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.19.ESV       


An interesting verse we see Christ could do nothing on his own it seams everything he had done and was to do came from our Heavenly Father through the Son but I think this will change after the resurrection when our Lord is raised in power and glory and sends the Holy Spirit into his Apostles who would also perform miracles.

Love and Peace

Hi

     For the Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing. And greater works than these will he show him, so that you may marvel.  For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom he will.
John 5:20-‬21 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.20-21.ESV       


Here we see our heavenly Father instructing his son through the works he was doing through Christ and even greater works he would do this of course looking forward to the resurrection when he would raise up Christ to everlasting life and then Christ is given the power to raise us up on the last day Christ's millennial reign.

Love and Peace

Hi

    For the Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son,  that all may honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.
John 5:22-‬23 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.22-23.ESV         


Here we see that it is Christ who will judge the world so the Father will hand everything over to Christ at the millenium when Christ will sit on his throne with his 12 Apostles and judge the world.

Love and Peace

Hi

   Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.
John 5:24 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.24.ESV           


Here we see how important it is to believe the word of God and in our Heavenly Father who sent his only begotten son into the world to die for the sins of the world which cleanse us so we can enter into the millennial reign of Jesus Christ at the resurrection and translation of those still living at his coming.

Love and Peace

Hi

  ?Truly, truly, I say to you,   an hour is coming, and is now here, when   the dead will hear   the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear   will live.
John 5:25 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.25.ESV   


Of course Christ raised the dead at his first advent to show who he was the son of God.
But I think there is another meaning I think our Lord is referring to the resurrection at his second comming all of us will die but before that happens we have the opportunity to hear his voice through the word he has given us and if we believe in him and the one who sent him will have eternal life.

Love and Peace

    For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself.  And he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man.
John 5:26-‬27 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.26-27.ESV         


Here we have a statement thats very important the Father and the son have live I take this to mean eternal life they can not die and this life can be given to us If we love God and believe in the one he has sent Jesus Christ.
And the Father has given the son authority to judge the world this will happen in the millennium when Christ  shall judge the world.

        Mat 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel

  Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works 

     Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. View more

Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years           


So let us believe and obey the commands of love to be worthy to be in the first resurrection by the grace of God.

Love and Peace
Dave
