  • Mrs Carter on John 14
    GOD is one, Jesus CHRIST in the flesh is doing God's work. GOD is Spirit and he dwells in Jesus CHRIST. So many people get it confused misinterpreting the Bible. Thinking it's three GOD'S instead of one.
  • Lesley Mitchell on John 14
    When Jesus Christ explains to Phillip that if he has seen him then he has seen the Father. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh. Meaning that God was in Christ. But God is not flesh and blood. God is a spirit, the Holy Ghost in which is the Comforter. Meaning that the Father, Word, and Holy Ghost are one God. Not a trinity, but there is no one beside God. As the right hand of God is God's Glory and Power. God is God alone. God is Alpha and Omega; Is Was Is. God is Almighty and is everywhere.

    Hebrews 1:3

    Hebrews 8:1

    Hebrews 10:11-13

    Hebrews 12:2

    Luke 16:19

    Mark 14:62

    Romans 8:34

    Ephesians 1:21

    Peter 3:22

    Acts 7:55

    Colossians 3:1

    These verses should be sufficient to show that the risen Jesus Christ is now at the Father's right Hand.

    Did GOD put the Word in Mary's womb to unite with Mary's egg to be conceived as Jesus?
  • Steve - in Reply on John 14:1
    I believe the Holy Spirit moved upon Mary and she conceived Jesus , God in flesh in perfect union . So that makes Jesus the Son of God come in the flesh to save the world . I would not add more to who Jesus is , this explains everything to me .

    No one ever was born like this but Jesus . Mary was Holy or this never would have taken place . Jesus proved He was of God but the way he lived and did things by God as well , Jesus always gave credit to his father . The Lord God of all even himself .
  • Chris - in Reply on John 14:1
    My understanding on this matter is that, according to Matthew 1:20, "for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost", the seed or embryo placed in Mary's womb was entirely of the Lord. That is, the Word of God was sent in seed form to be placed in a human so that the child to be born was fully from God, as God, being born into the world in fleshly form. I don't believe that Mary contributed anything to the Holy Seed but was used by God to be the means for His Son to come into the world, in fulfilment of His Plan & the prophecies made about Him.

    So when Jesus faced Satan at that time of rigorous temptation (Matthew 4:1-11), it was Satan's goal to cause the sin nature to come into Jesus by Jesus succumbing to him, as Jesus wasn't born with such a nature. Unlike Jesus, we are the products of human seed (not Divine seed) fusing & developing, thereby we have no choice other than inheriting the sin nature of our parents. So when we are tempted to sin, Satan already has a prepared fertile ground on which to make his appeal, & so we give in easily. But with Jesus, Satan had to try desperately to cause a sin nature to develop in Him, thereby rendering His coming & being a worthy Sacrifice, a total failure, leaving mankind wallowing in his sin & eventual judgement by God for it.

    Praise be to God that Jesus resisted Satan's thrusts, proving His Divine Power over evil & being the one & only acceptable & worthy Sacrifice for our sins. What we could never do, Christ fully did for us. So the seed from which we came into the World was already clothed with a sin nature, yet when we are born again, our spirits are made new by the Spirit of God so that it cannot sin (1 John 3:9). What then causes us to fall again & again? Well, we're still in that body of flesh (from the original seed) so the battle against sin rages, until the redemption of the body (Romans 8:23) into a complete change into purity & sinlessness.

  • Ashley on John 14:26
    What is the difference between the bodies soul and spirit?
  • Chris - in Reply on John 14:26
    1 Thessalonians 5:23: "And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

    As the Apostle Paul believed & is indeed the case, we are a type of trinity, without any one aspect of our make-up, we cease to be the creation that God made. The 'body' part is easy: we see it & most people give very little thought to any other aspect of our being. Yet, God has given it to us so that the 'real' parts of us can be 'housed' & that both the visible & invisible parts of us are accountable to God, unlike some who believe that we can do whatever we like with & through our bodies.

    Genesis 2:7: "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."

    Even though the word 'soul' can be used almost interchangeably with 'spirit', I think we should understand it as "the life of a person". And in that 'life' we also have our faculties, emotions, reasoning powers, etc.

    However, I see that the 'spirit' given to man is quite different. Proverbs 20:27, "The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly (heart)." God gives both man & animals a spirit. In man, God can minister or speak to us. So one might be 'spiritually alive' which means, being receptive to God/to spiritual things, (1 Corinthians 2:9-11). Or one is 'spiritually dead', having no spiritual discernment or is so hindered by Satan, that he no longer is moved by God. Of what sort the spirit in animals is, I don't know, except for what Ecclesiastes 3:21 tells us.

    But when we die, our spirits return to the Lord (Ecclesiastes 12:7): we are not only accountable to God for our lives, but also we are indestructible, or the body can be destroyed but the spirit lives on, whether with God or with Satan.
  • Alex on John 14:26
    The Godhead which is the Trinity is very easy to understand even a 5 yrs old can understand it . Abraham Issac and Jacob are a beautiful picture of the Godhead, Thats y God told Moses that his Name was Abraham Isaac and Jacob and my memorial to all generations. And this Abrahamic trinity resulted in a Special Nation, the nation of Israel Gods chosen ppl and they were father Son and Granson that multiplied as the sands by the seas.and this Abraham was asked to offer up his only son Issac who does that remind us of, God the FATHER that offered up his only son Jesus a type of Issac and outta of Issac came Jacob and Esau then the 12 tribes and outta of Christ the son comes the wheat and the tares . And outta of the Wheat comes a kingdom Child The H.G. which is the ISRAEL OF GOD That God PROMISED WD BECOME AS THE STARS OF HEAVEN, ya gotta realize that this Christ has a seed to sow in humanity, Thus he is gona be multiplied as the stars of heaven which is the ISRAEL OF GOD. the real children OF PROMISE are spirits thats y Jesus said that which is born of the spirit is spirit thats the H.G. the children of PROMISE THAT RESULTS FROM OUR NEW BIRTH VIA HIS SEED ETC. Then there is another great sign The Davidic Kingdom which ISAIAH describes as Jesse, David and Solomon a FATHER SON AND GRANSON TYPE KINGDOM THAT ISAIAH SAYS WILL come in the last days ( The babes and sucklings ) the Gransons that are gona lead Us. Unless ya receive the Kingdom as a lil CHILD ETC which is the H.G. She brought forth a man CHILD that is gonna rule ALL NATIONS NO EXCEPTIONS . A heavenly Jacob that the sun nor any heat can lite on simply b/c he is Spirit and gona be born in US sinners . Which is our new heart and new spirit that answers to the New heaven and the New Earth . No more SEAS implies no more SEAS of humanity that has not been washed by his Blood

    . Unto him that has loved us and has washed US from our sins in his own blood . If i be lifted up I will DRAW ALL MEN UNTO ME. OK LEMME GO GBU
  • Alex on John 14:26
    Alex on who is he that cometh in the name of the LORD ,it goes back to David which was his prophecy of Solomon a great judge and a great king that wd build the temple that WD COME OUT OF DAVIDS LOINS, Jesse's Grandson. Solomon which means COMFORTER . But its all prophetic of the H.G. a greater then SOLOMON Which will build the great temple in our hearts and minds . This heavenly Solomon comes out of Christ loins which is the H.G. As the H.G. comes out of Christ loins meaning his seed which is his WORD ( HIS BREATH ) ETC. And this is who comes in the NAME OF THE LORD, THE H.G. The Child of PROMISE .Remember Jesus said that the FATHER will send the H.G. IN MY NAME meaning Christ is the FATHER of that heavenly Child simply b/c it was Christ seed his WORD ( breath )that gives us the seed to birth the H.G. Thats y jesus said that which is born of the spirit is spirit thats the H.G. .Even in the natural our breath is our WORD but with JESUS his breath was his seed his WORD . THE SEEDS OF VERY GOD TO WHOM THE WORD CAME IT MADE THEM GODS And whosoever receiveth one such Child in my name receiveth me. But in the time of Christ it was the donkey and her colt that had to be loosed from that place where 2 ways meet which is humanity that is tied up in a place where 2 ways meet as Paul said when i wd do good evil is present with me,The flesh and the spirit wars against each other but we are gonna be loosed when we birth our colt ( OUR FRUIT UNTO GOD ) which is the H.G. the SON OF MAN. But when they saw Jesus riding the donkey and her colt they were very excited saying BLESSED IS HE THAT COMETH IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, Blessed is the Kingdom of our father DAVID ( Christ ) THAT COMETH IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, Name implies offspring r fruit of Christ which is the H.G. WHICH COMES FROM HIS SEED HIS WORD ETC All of this implies a heavenly birth ,Thats y he said Whosoever receives one such CHILD in MY NAME receives ME. Blessed is he that cometh in the NAME of the lord . th HG

    Your insight is amazing! Thanks for this. Is peace and comfort the same? I always believed the comforter as the Holy Spirit! Is not the Holy Spirit, more than peace? Can peace fill us up with Him? Kind of like being with him at the table, sharing a meal? Surrounded by Him, while at work! I surely find comfort in that! The comforter is in fact a person in the trinity! Peace is an attribute of Knowing the Christ. Solomon, like all the prophets, wished they had seen his day! What comfort there is, in seeing him, and knowing that he is! This is the comfort we have, knowing that He is, and He has risen and fills us up, through faith in his resurrection!

  • Adu Opoku on John 14:12
    As believers why are we not seeing 'greater works' today within the Church community?

    John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

    Jesus Healed everyone he encountered who was sick and diseased and he performed many miracles, He also died on the cross as atonement for our sins and came to reconcile us to God who has now forgiven us. So why as Christians are we continuing to live outside of God's original plan which was in place before human sin first entered the world after creation?
  • WHAT THE CHURCH SHOULD BE - in Reply on John 14:12
    Church is so much more than a "show" on tv. Jesus took it to the streets and so should we: anyone who names the Name of Jesus.

    I was a baby Christian with a teething ring when I first went out to evangelize in street ministry. Roswell New Mexico: home of the little green aliens with huge back eyes.

    Most of us know enough to get all of our neighbors saved. Some we know and love. I used my own gas to pick up people and take them to church the first time; and take them back home.

    A week later I found out we need to pray to the Lord of the Harvest. Who is Jesus Christ. Bible calls it intercession: same thing Jesus does 24/7x365 for All Saints. He sends us people who are ready to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    That was in the 80's. We set up film projectors, weekends on the Courthouse lawn and showed Rapture Movies to hundreds of people. Witnessing is fun! Why are we so scared to talk to strangers?? It's done every day on Facebook! Etc.

    Try to stay off of private property.

    Satan likes it when we stay home scared to open the door. Guess what? Jesus is The Door.

    Matthew 24 is happening NOW. This is everybody's last chance to go get those rowdy teenagers in the house and show them a Rapture Movie and pray with everyone of them. Collect up some 3.00 Bibles from Goodwill to give away to them! It's an offering of your money to Jesus's ministry. Absolutely blessed!

    I'm going to mention something that churches don't teach. Satan has demons named: "Spirit of Heaviness". You can Google what they do to people. Make you depressed, lethargic, lazy, unmovable, uninspired, almost paralyzed. Ever feel that ? See the world going to hell, but you doubt you can affect it? You be the guy that prays to the Lord of the Harvest and see how quick you get free from brain damaged demons. They're scared of Jesus Loving Christians. :D

    Pray about what I've said. Feel alive. Be filled with the Holy Spirit! Not self pity. Not Fear.

  • Church Freedoms under Attack - in Reply on John 14:12
    Well currently the Democratic House is enforcing a ruling in Nancy Pelosis' home state, California: that all Christians are forbidden to sing in Church across the USA.

    Only a percentage of members can attend Church due to crowding during a pandemic.

    For a while (maybe still?) police were made to cruise church parking lots and write down license plate numbers. I think there was some (Christian) public outcry over that.

    People really don't see how easily we can be played to worship the Antichrist. We have a Constitution that separates the State out of Church matters; not the other way around.

    Church is a privilege now.

    We better wake up and pay attention. What's happening is pretty bad.

    I am just like some of the people that have been talked about. I have a real problem knowing what Preacher is for real on TV or just in it for the money? I wish I knew how to tell right off but I can't! I just tell myself not to watch them. I always end up finding something that bothers me about most of them. I know the devil is trying his best to turn you away from God and I can tell you this he will never see the day he will turn me from God no matter he does!! Praise the Lord Jesus! I have never seen in all my life all of the bad things that are going on right now! It is just crazy right now! I really believe the end of times is getting closer and I want God to know I am a true believer. I ask him almost every day to please get the devil out of my head because when I start reading about Jesus and Father God the devil always shows up in my mind trying to change the way I believe and I ask the Lord right then to please get him out of my mind and he helps me. Thanks to all of you that support all of us on this site. Amen I know we will not know when Jesus is coming down out of the sky and I respect that and I also believe the time is getting closer, to many things coming true he told us to watch for. Amen
  • ADG on John 14:2
    This is literally mansions the Lord Jesus is talking about. Jesus is talking here. He even said "if it were not so, I would have told you." God is always true with His word and God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfil? - Number 23:19

    When the Lord says I am free then I am free. For He says, "So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed." - John 8:36

    That's why Paul says, "In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace." - Ephesians 1:7

    Why can't we believe a God who chose to die for the sins of many so we can attain the life everlasting? It could have been us who should be on that cross but no. Because of His richness in grace and mercy "God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us". - Romans 5:8

    For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord - Romans 6:23

    For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God in Him - 2 Corinthians 5:21

    God chose to love us even we are unlovable. We are wretched people and we need a saviour cause there is no good in us; No one is righteous, no! not one. - Romans 3:10

    What shall it profit me if I gained the whole world and lose my own soul? - Mark 8:36

    It is better for me to be in His courts than a thousand anywhere else! I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God than live the good life in the homes of the wicked - Psalms 84:10

    For it is appointed for men, us, to die once but after this is judgment.

    Death is real. Hell is real.

    That's why God sent Jesus once and for all to die for many once. He is not going to do it again.

    That is why we need a Saviour. We can only be saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

    Are you ready to receive Him?

  • Crystal Mack - in Reply on John 14:21
    All 66 books of the Bible are in the King James Version old and new testament with nothing added and nothing removed. And to my knowledge the only Bible without copy rights so it can be shared freely.

    Most Walmart's have KJV Bibles back in the book section. They have New KJV too.

    Compare John chapter 3 to see which one you like best. Hard bound Bibles don't lay flat; so see how that works for you.

    I like publisher Thomas Nelson the most.

    Priced very reasonable.
  • Helen on John 14:21
    RE: John 3 verses 3 and 5. I am confused. Verse 3 you must be born again to enter the kingdom of God.

    Verse 5 you must be born of water AND of the spirit.

    3: Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    5: Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

    QUESTION: If a person is born again of the spirit ONLY and not of water he/she CANNOT enter the kingdom of God?
  • Chris - in Reply on John 14:21
    Helen, if you look at that encounter that Jesus had with Nicodemus, Nicodemus had just asked Jesus how someone could be physically born again a second time. He asked this because the spiritual truth that Jesus told him in v 3, that a man cannot see the Kingdom of God unless he is born again, was confusing to him. So Jesus explained this to him in verse 5: "unless a man be born of water (referring to that physical birth that Nicodemus was thinking of) & of the Spirit (referring to that spiritual birth that Jesus was speaking about), that man cannot enter God's Kingdom. In other words, it's my sense that if Nicodemus hadn't brought up the question of the impossibility of a person to be physically born twice into the world, then Jesus probably would not have referred to the necessity of a person being born physically (of water). The "water" we understand can refer also to the amniotic fluid being released in 'physical' birth.

    So, you & I need not fear about the words in verse 5 - they were only for Nicodemus (& any of us now) who might think that to be "born of water" meant something else or an added requirement to spiritual birth. No - spiritual birth is only by faith in Christ's work at the Cross & nothing else. If there was something else required, then salvation does not come by faith, and that's not the Gospel message.
  • Thabo Lekgothu on John 14:21
    Limitations of the flesh overshadow humanity and the devil has made it look like it is difficult to obey. Without the presence or the indwelling of the holy spirit the flesh will take over and cost human delay in fulfillment of their destinies. Our Master Jesus is continuously in the prayer alter making intersessions for the saints for their perfection of every imperfections in their lives. Disobedience is too costly. Who can bear the cost? Only the accuser of our brethren. Jesus is LORD
  • Bare more on John 14:6
    This quote from Jesus are the only words that the holy spirit have ever spoken through me "I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME" those are the only words , that I can say are true, because they were spoken through me by the spirit of truth. and fear and trembling I experienced for the first time. Thank you Jesus for your mercy and thank you for redeeming me for Now I can say, with absolute certainty that you are the Lord, my god Jesus. Amen.
