Discussion for John 5:43

  • Lou Contino on John 5:43
    Go back to The Garden of Eden. To all the beasts of the field were attributes given to survive. Some have speed, some have stealth, some wings to leave the ground, some claws and others teeth to break bone. And yet Man who has none of these attributes was given the Authority to Rule over all of The Garden. This is because the strength of man is in the refuge of Christ. Christ made all and He is our refuge for power, strength and authority. But remember, the Kingdom Of God is in humility, servitude and mercy. So the smallest good deed of sharing is power, strength and authority given to us from Christ for His Love of us to be with Him in The Kingdom of God. Amen!
  • Confession of Faith on Repentance and Reformation-being born again on John 5:43
    "We believe and confess that, since the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth, and, therefore, prone to all unrighteousness, sin, and wickedness, the first lesson of the precious New Testament of the Son of God is repentance and reformation of life, and that, therefore, those who have ears to hear, and hearts to understand, must bring forth genuine fruits of repentance, reform their lives, believe the Gospel, eschew evil and do good, desist from unrighteousness, forsake sin, put off the old man with his deeds, and put on the new man, which, after God, is created in righteousness and true holiness; for neither baptism, supper, church, or any other outward ceremony, can without faith, regeneration, change or renewing of life, avail anything to please God or to obtain of Him any consolation or promise of salvation; bit we must go to God with an upright heart, and perfect faith, and believe in Jesus Christ, as the Scriptures say, and testify of Him; through which faith we obtain forgiveness of sins, are sanctified, justified, and made Children of God, yea partake of His mind, nature and image, as being born again of God from above, through incorruptible seed.

  • Swearing of Oaths-1632 Confession of Faith - in Reply on John 5:43
    "Concerning the Swearing of Oaths we believe and confess, that the Lord Christ has set aside and forbidden, the same to His disciples, and they should not swear at all, but that yea should be yea, and nay, nay; from which we understand that all oaths, high and low are forbidden, and that instead of them we are to confirm all our promises and obligations, yea, all our declarations and testimonies of any matter, only with our word yea, in that which is yea, yet, that we must always, in all matters and with everyone, adhere to, keep, follow, and fulfill the same, as though we had confirmed it with a solemn oath. And if we do this, we trust that no one, not even the Magistracy itself, will have just reason to lay a greater burden on our mind, and conscience.

    Matt. 5:34-35; James 5:12, 2 Cor. 1:17"

  • Eugene Jenkins on John 5:43
    Iam a hebrew israeli and i keep wondering why you all who knows so much truth that you all do not teach the truth when you teach about the true name of the creator yah and the true name of yah son is yahshua dose it say in john 5:43 that he said he(yahshua)came in his father name but you or anyone else can show that name in the old scriptures.

    that the name that you all is pushing as being yahweh or yah name

    My son also is an Israelite or should say studying the Isralite Truth. He really enjoys the teaching. He listens to IUIC on line.

    Some may wonder if you are calling on God with the name of your interests or on His redeemer?
  • Marilyn T on John 5:43
    When I read the Scriptures, I ask God to show me what to read. Oh how I was blessed to know that we must come

    to the Son ( Jesus ) to get to God ( our Father). I praise God that the man sitting at the pool didn't need help to get

    into the pool for healing. He had the healer, Jesus right there. We do not need anyone to go to God on our behalf,

    we can go directly for our self. Thankful that we are under Grace and not the Law. I love God, Jesus, and the Holy

    Ghost. I try to keep my heart fixed with a good relationship with God so when I need Him , he knows who I am.
  • Mike Acosta on John 5:43
    Why is it wrong to pray to the Virgin Mary? I know that it takes away the reason for Jesus coming and dying for our sins, but is there any benefit to pray to Mary as some believe?
  • Chris - in Reply on John 5:43
    Mike, yes, it is very wrong to pray to the Virgin Mary - in fact she hasn't even been a virgin since the birth of Jesus, since she had many more children (Mt 12:46-50, 13:55,56 & others).

    Jesus alone makes intercession for us (Rom 8:34) & His Spirit also intercedes on our behalf when we are unable to pray properly, maybe in ignorance (Rom 8:26). So the whole purpose of prayer, whether in praise & worship or in requesting from the Lord, is to direct our prayer to the Lord only without any other mediator (whether a priest, Mary or another Saint). To do that, means that we have no confidence that our prayers to God will be heard & so we need an intermediary between God & man. Our Intermediary can only & will only be Christ Jesus. To go to another means that we do despite to Christ's Holy & Blessd position with the Father.
