Discussion for John 5

  • A disciple
    Ray; Do you think the Holy Spirit is going to use a dirty vessel to pour the Living Water through? PAUL DID NOT STILL HAVE A PROBLEM WITH SIN! "Whom the Son sets free is REALLY free." Reality is "Sin SHALL NO LONGER HAVE DOMINION OVER YOU." After you have been set free and released from jail, you're no longer in jail! Why would anyone think they're still locked up, after they've been released?

    John 5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. Jesus told the man that had infirmity 38 years on the bed to rise up sin no more. The man sin was hurting him. Romans 7:20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. Paul still had a problem with sin.
  • A disciple
    The Divinity of the Son of God is a fact mentioned throughout the Scriptures, from Moses to David and all the Prophets; and confirmed by the Apostles and multitudes of Believers ever since. But then comes a little man with a mouth, thinking he can simply deny it all! In John 5 here are a number of statements from the Lord Himself, declaring His Divine Authority and equality with the Father.

    Andrew: Why are you repeating my Post?
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Bruce: Jesus had his own will as he did not want to go to the cross, he knew he had to obey God his Father. Jesus felt pain, hungered, slept, ate, drank etc. Jesus knew it was going to be painful and wanted that portion of his life to pass by him. He knew that his mission was to fulfill his Father's will. Luke 22:41-44
  • Bruce
    Andrew: When I First Read Your Post I was Shocked but I Read it a few more times. The word weakling was ??? Strong.The Book of John 5-20 show The Son and The Father as separate:Christ was sent by The Father,
    Christ had His Own Will, but done The Fathers. The Son comes in The Glory of His Father. Matthew 16:27. I hope to See more of Your Post. Pray for Those Who are Puffed-up in their Pride.
