Part 3 – For You from Him

Just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life. In the same way the Son gives life to those He wants to.
Nor does the Father himself judge anyone. He has given his Son the full right to judge so that all will honor the Son in the same way as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son, does not honor the Father who sent Him.
I’m telling you the truth. Those who hear Jesus’ words and believe in God the Father have eternal life. They will not be judged because they have already passed from death to life. The time is coming, the time has already come, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God. And those who hear it will come to life. Just as the Father is Himself the source of life. In the same way He has made His Son to be the source of life and He has given the Son the right to judge because He is the Son of Man.
Don’t be surprised at this. The time is coming when all the dead will hear His voice and come out of their graves. Those who have done good will rise and live. And those who have done evil will rise and be condemned.
He can do nothing on His own authority. He judges only as God tells Him, so His judgement is right because He is not trying to do what He wants but what God wants. If Jesus testified on His own behalf what He says is not to be accepted as real proof. But there is someone else who testifies on His behalf and Jesus knows what God says about Him is true. John is the one that the Pharisees sent their messengers to and John spoke on behalf of the truth. Jesus does not need a human witness! He says this only in order that you might be saved. John was like a lamp burning and shining and people were willing for a while to enjoy his light. But Jesus has a witness on His behalf that is even greater than the witness that John gave. Jesus Christ did the deeds that the Father gave Him to do. These speak on His behalf and show that the Father sent Him. And the Father also testifies on His behalf.
You have never heard His voice or seen His face and you do not keep His message in your hearts, for you do not believe in Jesus, the one He sent. You study the scriptures, read tarah cards, ruin stones, astrology, astronomy, science and spiritualism because you think that in them you will find eternal life. But the very scriptures speak about Him and yet you are not willing to go to Him in order to have life!
He is not looking for human praise but he knows what kind of people you are and He knows that you have no love for God in your hearts. He came with His Father’s authority but you have not received Him.
When however someone comes with his own authority you will receive him!
You like to receive praise from one another but you do not try to win praise from the One who alone is God!
How then can you believe Jesus? Do not think however that Jesus is the one that will accuse you to the Father. Moses with whom you have put your hope by following only the ten commandments he gave you from God, is the very one who will accuse you. If you really believed Moses you would believe Jesus because Moses wrote about Jesus. But since you do not believe what Moses wrote, how can you believe what Jesus says?
Do not work for food that spoils. Instead work for the food that lasts for eternal life. This is the food, which the Son of Man will give you because God the Father has put His mark of approval on Him. So what can we do in order to do what God wants us to do? What God wants us to do is to believe in the One He sent. Jesus Christ. Those who go to Him will never be hungry and those who believe in Him will never be thirsty. Everyone the Father gives Jesus will go to Him and He will never turn away anyone who goes to Him because He came down from Heaven to do not His own will but the will of the Father who sent Him. And it is the will of the Father that Jesus loose not any of all those He gave Him but that He should raise them to life on the last day. For what the Father wants is that all who see His Son and believe in Him should have eternal life and He will raise them to life in the last day.
What Jesus teaches us is not His own teaching but it comes from God who sent Him. Whoever is willing to do what God wants will know whether what Jesus teaches comes from God or if He speaks on His own authority. Those who speak on their own authority are trying to gain glory for themselves. But God who wants glory for Jesus, the One He sent is honest and there is nothing false in Him.
Moses gave us the Law but none of us keep the Law as God wants us to. Jesus said to Stop judging by external standards and judge by true standards.
Do you really know Him and know where He is from?
He did not come on His own authority but of the Father that sent Him and He is truthful. We do not know the Father but Jesus knows Him because He comes from Him. He came to this world so that the blind should see and those who see should become blind. If your question is, “You don’t mean that we are blind too?” Then the only answer to that is the one Jesus gave which is; “If you were blind, then you would not be guilty but since you claim that you can see this means that you are still guilty.” Jesus has always been telling you the truth!
He is the gate for the sheep, which is us. All others that came before or after Him were thieves and robbers. But His real sheep do not listen them. He is the gate. Those who come in by Him will be saved. They will go in and go out and find pasture. The thief comes only in order to steal, kill and destroy. He has come in order that we may have life, life in all its fullness. He is the good shepherd that was willing to die for His sheep, Us, which He did. When a hired man, such as the so called leaders of this modern world; the psychics that claim to be gods in the eyes of the weak, who are not the Shepherd and do not own the sheep, sees a wolf coming, he leaves the sheep and runs away. So the wolf snatches the sheep and scatters them. The hired man runs away because he is only a hired man. He does not care about the sheep.
But Jesus is the good shepherd. As the Father knows Him and He knows the Father, in the same way He knows His sheep and they know Him. He died for His sheep, us. There are other sheep which belong to Him that are now not in His sheep pen. He must bring them too. They will listen to His voice and we will become One flock, with One shepherd.
The Father loves Jesus because He was willing to give up His life in order that He may receive it back again. No one took Jesus’ life away from Him. He gave it up on His own free will. He had the right to give it up and He had the right to take it back. This is what the Father commanded Him to do. Because of these words there will be division among you as there was 2,000 years ago and He knows this. He speaks the truth. It is with your own free will that you must choose to see and hear or not. It is your choice and you must accept the consequences for your choice.
The deeds that Jesus does on God’s authority speak on His behalf but those who choose not to accept and believe Him are not His sheep. His sheep listen to His voice. He knows them and they follow Him. He gives them eternal life and they shall never die. No one can snatch them away from Him. What God has given Jesus is greater than everything and no one can snatch them away from the Fathers care. The Father and Jesus are one.
The Father is in Him and Jesus is in the Father, just as Jesus is in us and we are in Him. Do not listen or take heed to the ways of this world. This world, it’s human leaders and it’s wicked ways are the very thieves and robbers that Jesus speaks about. The ones that never stop trying to snatch His sheep and scatter them. But we, His real sheep that are scattered around the world and live amongst flocks we do not know and that will never truly know us, we hear His voice and run to Him. The same time we do our best to gather His other lost sheep and bring them to Him. Whoever belongs to the truth, listens to Jesus. Those who have ears, listen. Those who have eyes wake up.
