Hi
Moving on

     Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice  and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment.
John 5:28-‬29 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.28-29.ESV       


What a wonderful promise from our Lord so let us do our utmost to be worthy to be in the first resurrection and to enter the millennial reign of Christ what a wonderful time to look forward to.
To be with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for eternity and the best way to achieve this is through Love so let us obey the laws of love as given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

  ?I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and   my judgment is just, because   I seek not my own will   but the will of him who sent me.
John 5:30 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.30.ESV       


Here our Lord make it plane that it is the Father working through him he can only do the will of our Heavenly Father who bears witness about his son in his word.
So it's not the will of Christ but the will of the Father which is to create man in his image which is Jesus Christ  and will be completed at Christs second comming let us pray that day will come soon.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

    If I alone bear witness about myself, my testimony is not true.  There is another who bears witness about me, and I know that the testimony that he bears about me is true.  You sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth.
John 5:31-‬33 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.31-33.ESV       


Here Christ proves who he is the son of God he witnesses for him self and he also calls on the witness of John the Baptist this in compliance with the law of Moses which states.

      On the evidence of two witnesses or of three witnesses the one who is to die shall be put to death; a person shall not be put to death on the evidence of one witness.
Deuteronomy 17:6 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/deu.17.6.ESV       
 

Not only did our Lord comply with the law he also came to fulfill the law.

    ?Do not think that I have come to abolish   the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but   to fulfill them.
Matthew 5:17 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.5.17.ESV       


So dose our Lord fulfill everything in the law sounds like a fascinating subject for a thread.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

     Not that the testimony that I receive is from man, but I say these things so that you may be saved.  He was a burning and shining lamp, and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light.
John 5:34-‬35 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.34-35.ESV       


I take it from this that the testimony of John came from the Holy Spirit that worked in him he was a shining light in a dark world and many went out to him to be Baptised to begin a new life in following Christ the true light who had come into the world so let us join them in following the light of the world.

Love and Peace

Hi

    But the testimony that I have is greater than that of John. For the works that the Father has given me to accomplish, the very works that I am doing, bear witness about me that the Father has sent me.
John 5:36 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.36.ESV   


Here our Lord testifies that what he has come to do is greater than John and this is established in the works  he was doing curing the sick raising the dead spreading the gospel and what a wonderful witness the works he did were.
All the works he did came from the Father and were carried out by his obedient son he carried out everything he was given to do even death on the cross.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

     And the Father who sent me has himself borne witness about me. His voice you have never heard, his form you have never seen,  and you do not have his word abiding in you, for you do not believe the one whom he has sent.
John 5:37-‬38 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.37-38.ESV       


Of course our Lord here is referring to everything that is written about him in the OT in another place he says the law and the prophets are about him the Jewish priesthood had all this wonderful testimony and still refused believe who he was or what he preached.
Let us not fall into the same fault let us read and believe what we read knowing we can rely on it 100% it is the word of God and everything will come to pass as the word says.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

   You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me,  yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.  I do not receive glory from people.
John 5:39-‬41 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.39-41.ESV           


Here our Lord is speaking to the priests those trying to arrest him and have him crucified although they had all the scripture telling them what their Messiah would do when he came.
So it seams studying and head knowledge is not enough we must have understanding that everything God has to say is based in Love in what we read we must look for LOVE.

A few relevant scriptures.

  1Jn 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. View more

1Jn 4:12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us       

   If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.   Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;  it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.  So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:1-‬13 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/1co.13.1-13.ESV       


Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

   But I know that you do not have the love of God within you.  I have come in my Father?s name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him.  How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?
John 5:42-‬44 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.42-44.ESV       
 

Here our Lord is telling the Jewish hierarchy that they do not have Gods love in them they refuse to accept Christ although they have the OT and all the prophecies that tell of his coming and what he would do but still did not believe him.
I wonder how much this mirrors the the present time when there are many that don't believe and the hierarchy of all the denominations are to busy promoting separation instead of reconciliation let us put love before everything else what ever causes devision lets throw it out lets get back to scripture and reject man-made theology.

Love and Peace
