    The Word Of God is so Encouraging, when we read it or Listen to it, it is "Key" To have the spirit and to be Baptist of God by "HIS SPIRIT" it helps us when we witness to others, it's 3:19 in the Morning and am so Encouraged.

    Verse 34~Jesus showed that not only was it important for him to teach and preach but he said that he wanted and needed to do the will of his father Jehovah God. We must make sure that we practice what we preach just as Jesus did.

    I believe in the healing power of Jesus. I know that he can speak the word and I will be healed.
    I am in need of healing from a 7 1/2 hr. Spinal surgery. It has been a difficult recovery. I am
    Waiting for my healing. Just like Jesus healed the sick boy , he can heal me also.
    Pray my strength in the Lord.

    I sent you to reap that wherein he bestowed no labor, for Jesus was with them! There comes a time when he is taken from us in that he is with the Father reaping his reward. Do you think he labored not when he walked amongst us, when he absorbed the Doctors comments on his Torah studies. By his comments you know his knowledge of Mosaic law was vast, when he preached from the Torah daily in temple

    "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." Where do you worship? It must be special, for God, "dwelleth not in temples made with hands; neither is worshipped with men's hands..." Acts 17:24b-25a. "Howbeit the most High dwelleth NOT in temples made with hands." Acts 7:48 The 'place' we must worship is, "IN SPIRIT", found in the little community of TRUTH.

    AMEN Thomas thats true GOD DESIRED TRUTH IN THE INWARD PARTS THATS Y THERE HAS TO BE A GREATER BAPTISM THEN WATER. Jesus knew that all his disciples had been water baptised but he warns them if I WASH THEE NOT YOU WILL HAVE NO PART WITH ME WHICH SPEAKS VOLUMES OF A GREATER BAPTISM OF The H.G. an INTERNAL cleanser OF OUR HEARTS I.E. BY HIS WORDS. TH h.g fell on them that heard his WORDS TH GOSPEL.
  • Thomas
    True baptism is a cleansing of the inner man. As the Christ said, "cleanse first that which is within," making the turning of the water to wine the simplest, most eloquent metaphor representing the baptism which his words bring to the heart of the believer: 1) the waterpots were for washing; 2) wine, as a spirit, represents the Spirit; and 3) drinking a baptism cleanses the inner man.
  • A disciple
    "..JESUS said unto them you shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall you be baptized.." How gentle the Lord is with us! He doesn't tell them how they are unfit for even the presence of God, and how dare they imagine that they should be put in the worshipful place at God's right hand! But Jesus shows us how that He is our Leader Example.
  • Alex
    Jesus knew that all of his disciples had been water baptised but he warns them if I WASH THEE NOT YOU WILL HAVE NO PART WITH ME which speaks volumes of a greater baptism of the H.G. THAT RESULTED FROM THE CROSS TH BLOOD ETC. THE WATER OF GOD IS HIS WORD NOT H20. THATS Y HE SAID YOU ARE MADE CLEAN BY THE WORD I HAVE SPOKEN UNTO YOU which is THAT LIVING WATER WHICH IS THE H.G. NOT H20. TH BLOOD ETC.

    If we receive and believe in him he will provide a blessing each day he gives us. It's not an easy road but road worth the effort of going through.
  • Alex
    3 Times in the N.T. ITS RECORDED JOHN BAPTISED YOU WITH WATER BUT I WILL BAPTISE YOU WITH THE H,G, AND FIRE,Even in the O.T. without the shedding of blood there was no remission of sins,If water cd have made humanity clean Jesus shed his blood in vain and the cross was just foolishness.When ya teach water baptism for the remission of sins you are making the HIS BLOOD of NO EFFECT as PAUL SAYS
  • Alex
    Jesus and his disciples answer to the 2 turtle doves that had to be washed ( baptised ) by running water. Turtle doves are lovers like christ and the church are lovers but 1 of the doves had to be killed and his blood sprinkled on the living bird which is the Church, Thats y the dove descended on Christ, HE is our sacrificial dove. HE HAD NO SIN, BUT AS THE SACRIFICIAL DOVE HE HAD TO BE WASHED .

    Dear Stephen F.Z.
    Jesus was Water Baptized in NEW Test. Times: And so were ALL of His Followers. Then in Matt.28:19 (Which is in The New Test.) Jesus told His followers to GO and TEACH all nations, and BAPTIZE THEM in the name of The Father, Son and H.G. NOBODY was Water Baptized in Old Testament Times. They Were Circumcised.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Dear A disciple {Mr or Mrs.} : Water baptisim was for the Jews of that day only as it belongs in the Old Testament. One of the benefits of our Blessed Lord and Saviors death on the cross was for the forthcoming Day of Pentecost of the pouring out of the Holy Spirit speaking in tongues. Read from the book of Acts through Jude. This is the blueprint for us today.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    DEAR A DECIPLE : NO ONE CAN EVER GO BEYOND WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN TAUGHT AND THATS A FACT ! NO MAN CAN RECIEVE ANYTHING EXCEPT IT BE GIVEN THEM FROM ABOVE ! YOU SIMPLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT A SPECIFIC GIFT CALLING MINISTREY OR OFFICE THEREOF IS ! FOR YOU TO CRITISIZE ME FOR WHAT THE LORD OUR GOD HAD GIVEN ME IN REVELATION TO THIS DISCOVERY WAS GIVEN TO ME AND I BACK HIS WORD AMEN ! SHALOM !
  • A disciple
    Mr. Zielski; "Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?" Jesus Baptized not but His Disciples did! Paul was not sent [specifically] to Baptize, but he did actually baptize! Jesus said, "He that believes AND IS BAPTIZED shall be saved; and he that believes not shall be damned." If you don't know what it is for, why don't you rather ask; instead of making up doctrine?
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    JOHN 4:2 ! WHY ? ! BECAUSE OUR BLESSED LORD AND SAVIOR CHRIST YESHUA WAS NOT GIVEN THE MINISTREY OF BAPTISIM ! OUR BLESSED LORD AND SAVIOR CAME AS THE SACRIFICAL LAMB OF GOD AND TO SET UP THE CHURCH OR YET TO COME KINGDOM OF GOD AGE OR GENTILES ! HE HAD STILL YET TO GIVE UP THE HOLY GHOST AT THAT POINT IN HIS TIME IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AGE AS HE CLOSED HIS AGE OF HEAVEN OUT ON THE CROSS !

    Verses 23 and 24: It is God's view of religion that truly matters. Those worshipping God must do so with spirit and truth.

    Verse 14: Jesus revealed that if we are to gain everlasting life, we must go to him because he provides it for us.

    1 Corinthians 6:13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord and the Lord for the body. The meat of the Word is Jesus. Eat and get full...

    Jesus is explaining there is no salvation in the Jewish religion. Jesus is the living water meaning the spirit of truth that removes the lies of Abraham and Jacob. Jesus teaches water Baptism for removal of sin and his disciples water baptize new followers. Jesus does not make blood sacrifices
  • A disciple
    The woman who came out to the well at noon-day, was the first one in that town whom the Lord was sent to talk to. There is so much to wonder at and learn from Jesus, how to think about others, and then how to talk to them. He came into a world where everyone was lost, and wandering aimlessly without a shepherd, and trapped in sins. Its the open heart receptive to the truth that God seeks to save.

    Jn. 4:16-18; Something I noticed, after reading an embarrassing personal question on here, Jesus never did this, not even with the Pharisees. In these 3 vs. He 'led' the woman to where He could get her to admit her fault - without saying, 'how many husbands have you had.' But then - He was God and was - omniscient. But He's still our example - to "Set a watch before my mouth ..... "; Ps. 141:3.

    Aavtar: Sometimes hurt and pain can run deep. I heard every curse word before I could walk that with my dad yelling at my mom. That would be doing the week when he didn't drink.Friday,Saturday night all Hell broke loose! Sounds like your life was a little harder! Only because of my new life in Christ that I could forgive my dad. Hugged him first time at the age of 34. Christ the best thing ever!
  • A disciple
    One big part of the things Jesus taught, that has always scandalized so many who think they are better than others; is how He said, "The publicans and Harlots go into the kingdom of heaven before you!" and about the woman (who was a sinner) weeping and kissing His feet; "Her sins which are many are forgiven because she loved much." Jesus nowhere condones sinning, but is ever kind to the repentant.
  • Irene123
    The Samaritan woman - nothing was even implied she was abused; she just had 5 husbands. Jesus wated to 'bring her out' tho', is why He told her to bring her husband; He knew she would go tell people, "Here is a man that told me all ....."; Jesus was 'preparing' the way for His Apostles.
