Joh 1:11 He came unto his own , etc. This verse states (1) that he "came", personally, to his own. He took upon himself a fleshly form and came to the race to which he was united by fleshly ties; (2) his own received him not. His own is the Jewish nation, who "received" him not.

Discussion for John 1

  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    God and his word is ALWAYS two separate things. Numbers 11:23] And the LORD said unto Moses, Is the LORD's hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not. Psalm 107:20] He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Proverbs 2:[1] My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;"  
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    John 1:1 is where preachers and congregations get bewitched and stumble over. John 1:1-2 is telling us "The Word was God's Word" and NOT God was the word. The word ((was)) is past tense and ((and)) a conjunction joining three separate thoughts into a sentence. God and his word are two separate things always. God made the world by speaking words and NOT with two hands like you and I have.

    PSALM 119:130 THE ENTRANCE OF THY WORDS GIVETH LIGHT IT GIVETH UNDERSTANDING UNTO THE SIMPLE ----- JOB 38:2 WHO IS THIS THAT DARKENETH COUNSEL BY WORDS WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE -----JOB 42:6 WHEREFORE I ABHOR MYSELF AND REPENT IN DUST AND ASHES ----- 42:7 AND IT WAS SO THAT AFTER THE LORD HAD SPOKEN THESE WORDS UNTO JOB THE LORD SAID TO ELIPHAZ THE TEMANITE MY WRATH IS KINDLED AGAINST THEE AND AGAINST THY TWO FRIENDS FOR YOU HAVE NOT SPOKEN OF ME THE THING THAT IS RIGHT AS MY SERVANT JOB HATH

    Amen that was the lesson

    Insight777; Its very dangerous to be saying, "thus saith the LORD," when God has not said anything to you! There are a lot of things you are getting seriously wrong. Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world; and teaching IS NOT shedding of the blood! All your analogies are nothing according to the truth of the Scriptures, but fake spiritualism! and out of your own head!
