    JOHN 5:21 for as THE FATHER raiseth up the dead and quickeneth them even so THE SON quickeneth whom HE will 1 TIMOTHY 2:5 FOR THERE IS ONE GOD AND ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MEN THE MAN CHRIST JESUS JOHN 3:34 for HE whom GOD hath sent speaketh the words OF GOD for GOD giveth not the spirit by measure unto HIM --- NO CONFUSION ---

    JOHN 5:43 I am come in MY FATHERS name and you receive me not if another shall come in his own name him you will receive --5:44-- how can you believe which receive honor one of another and seek not the honor that cometh from GOD only PHILIPPIANS 2:21 FOR ALL SEEK THEIR OWN NOT THE THINGS WHICH ARE JESUS CHRISTS
  • Stephender
    Chap. 5 is a strain to understand. 1st the invalid at the pool who had been there 38 years. Jesus heals on the Sabbath, a good deed criticized by the Jews. John, a witness to his cousin. And a monolouge in red letters equating himself to the Father. Critisize the Jews, ye Evangeleticles, at your own peril, for your politics have ruined your reputation and Jesus weeps at your Fall intohypocrisy

  • Steve morrow
    JOHN 5:28 marvel not at this for the hour is coming in the which all that are in the graves shall hear HIS voice --- 5:29 --- and shall come forth --- THEY THAT HAVE DONE GOOD UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF LIFE --- and they that have done evil --- UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF DAMNATION --- 2 THESSLONIANS 2:12 that they all might be damned who believed not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness
