Discussion for John 5

  • Job
    Jesus did not ask the crippled man about the pool . He asked him if he would be made whole. He was so self absorbed in his bondage that he could not even answer the question. Would you be made whole ? He never answered it. Maybe he did not want to be made whole . Jesus did not bother to talk to him anymore but decided for him and commanded him to be made whole and carry A heavy bed after 38 year

    The godly needs no man's teachings. (4) While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
  • I am that Michael Isaac Dale
    The man who buys his own, vain religion with money in order to sell his own, vain religion (to himself) for money is no minister of GOD. (3) Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation. These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

    GOD does not sell his free gift of salvation. (2) My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever. And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
  • I am that Michael Isaac Dale
    (Doctrine of GOD is given. It can not be sold for money, nor can it be bought.) A Covenant (1) Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
