Discussion for John 5:43

  • Bathshuwayah Ariel pretty much broke it down. Some People does not accept his real name or truth about things
  • Missionary G Simmons for verse 43
    Richard Buabeng 's comment clarified the statement at best. Thanks you for wisdom.
  • Richard Buabeng for verse 43
    To "Come in the name of a Higher Person " refers to the delegate authority reposed on someone to perform a particular duty or to act on the behalf of the that 'Higher Person. It does not ncessarily mean coming in the name as in RICHARD OR JOHN, But rather the proxy power given to the person perform some or act for SOMEONE and not on his own behalf. It means all that the person says or does within the set period are words or action for the One that sent that person. So Christ is referring to the authority not the literal 'name '.
  • Bathshuwayah Ariel for verse 43
    This verse implies two things 1. Coming in Father 's name literally e.g. The son of a Mr. Winston will definitely be John Winston! Yahweh is the Father 's name , and Yahshua is the Son come in the family name 'Yah '. Yahshua came in His Father 's name Yahweh and Christianity rejected Him for another who is none other than Jesus! 2. Yahshua came in the authority of His Father, Yahweh. The Father sent Him not to abolish the laws as Christendom suggests, because only the Father has the authority to do away with the laws He made them, for our good, but to die for our sins and pay the ransom with His precious blood. Only the Father can give the go ahead order or the authority to perform such a tremendous task.
  • He came in his Father's name, because his Father's name is Jesus. God was known by many names/titles in the past. But it is written that Jesus is God's name, and the only name to fulfill what is clearly written! Such as but not limited to, Malachi 1:11, Jesus name fulfills this. Philippians 2:9, Again, Jesus name is known above every name. Isaiah 9:6 tells us Jesus is God, and St.Matthew 28:19 was followed by the Apostles when they baptized in Jesus name only; the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Acts 2:21, the name that saves!
  • In the name of means by the authority of. A good example would be: Stop in the name of the law. Jesus is saying that he comes by the authority of his Father and is not received by the Jews. Another will come in his own name and the Jews will receive him. I believe that Jesus is talking about the Antichrist that is still yet to com
