    I can claim it with ease mark! and so can all who are saved. Here's a new "perspective" with ALL advantages: JESUS IS IN YOU AND GOD TOO (since they are one) We ALSO receive the Holy Spirit upon being saved who is also one with the Father. >>>>1 John 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.>>> also see ACTS 8:8 and elsewhere on the Holy Spirit! Peace.
  • Mark Titus for verse 29
    It's amazing how many people want to prove Jesus a liar. Why? Self-Righteousness. Remember, my Savior Jesus Christ new what it was like to be a man. He felt what we feel when it comes to sin. He also had a HUGE advantage. The Father in him. No other human being could claim that at the time or since. Perspective people. Perspective.
  • Maria Concepcion Alvarez-Alcantara for verse 29
    The word "without repentance"(KJV) or irrevocable "(NIV)would direct to the only purpose why the Lord Jesus Christ was sent by His father and that is to REDEEM those who were under the law (the Jews)Gal.4:4-5...Redemption of a thing is unconditional if the owner is committed to buy back the thing he loves, be it defective or not as long as he loves it. The gentiles do not fall on this verse..John 3:16 applies to all people who believes in Jesus Christ so that by faith in Jesus Christ they could be grafted on the branches of the olive tree.In Ezekiel 36..God said it is not for the sake of His People but for the sake of His name which was profaned by His chosen people, God will sprinkle water on their faces to cleanse them, that is why even "without repentance" God would still redeem His people.
