    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!
  • Insight777
    Jesus never called himself the Lamb. Jesus never said I am going to die for your sins.
    Jesus did say he is the shepherd. Jesus said feed my lambs. Jesus was Holy from birth but the Spirit he received upon baptism is the knowledge of the new religion he was to establish.Jesus had full knowledge of the Jewish religion but not the direction from God to separate completely from it for human salvation.

    Insight7John 11-14 is talking about Christ.He most certainly was born with the Holy Spirit from the womb.You say he was not. John witnessed of the Light=Jesus. John saw the Holy Spirit descending on Christ so John would know when people believed on Christ they would receive the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the Holy Spirit, he is God he came to earth in the flesh. Can he be separated from himself? No.
  • Sheri Stump
    God tells us in Gen 1 that He and the word are one. Is the word Jesus? Yes in John 1:14 says the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.

  • Jesse Bryant
    John 1:18 dispels the idea of Jesus as "the angel of the Lord". This chapter makes it abundantly clear that Jesus and the Father are one and the same God (though distinct in person). The angel of the Lord is just that, the angel, not the Lord.
