“ Jesus answered, I am the way, truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”
I strongly believe and always believed that Jesus is the “only way” I was “brought up” as a Buddhist in a Buddhist family. And I was taught if you sin, you will not be forgiven. There is no forgiveness of sins in it.
And even more scary I will be re born as an animal and even worse as a fly or an insect.
I have always being quite upset about it. And I have had come across many of different religions and I did study them all. And only “religion” that made sense was Christianity.
And while studying, and also while praying secretly to Jesus, I met with a horrible motor cycle accident, colliding with a big transport bus. And it killed my best friend at that time, who was riding with me.And I had decided to follow Jesus after reading about him through literature sent by evangelist Oral Roberts. This is another story and my testimony which I am hoping to write later.
Father and I are one:
“Jesus said father and I are one”
Here Jesus is stressing without doubt that the and Father are one, dispelling all arguments that are being made against his validity. The people of Israel is still waiting for the messiah, but He has come already, and is among us believers in the Spirit. This is the godly truth. Another scripture that clearly endorses it is, when Jesus said,
“Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.”
If he was before Abraham, it clearly shows that Jesus was with the Father and he was in Him. So it is obvious unless you accept Jesus and be born of water and spirit you can not enter the kingdom of God.
And in John 14:28 Jesus says that the Father is Greater than I
This shows that the Father is the Highest form of God, and that Jesus came with less power than the Father. The reason is Father wanted Jesus to be born of a woman and be Human and go through life just like any other man on earth. This is exactly what he did. But he was given power to perform miracles. He asked Lazarus who was dead to rise by faith, and he rose. He healed the sick.
Jesus says that the Father is Greater than I
Healing the sick:
Jesus said in my name you shall drive out demons : In other words, if you say to an evil spirit when alone, “you evil spirit, in the name of Jesus I bind you and demand you to get out of here ” it will run screaming. This is what exorcists are doing, and Jesus has given the same power to all who has accepted him and believe in him.
Also, if anyone is sick and suffering, you certainly can use the power of Jesus by touching him, and pray “you evil of “sickness” Leave “whoever” in the mighty name of Jesus and the sickness will vanish.
In Luke 8:2
seven evil spirits came out of Mary Magdalene. And in Luke 7:21 Jesus cure many with evil spirits, diseases and sicknesses.
No one has seen God:
“No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known”
Only way, you can see him and get to know him is through Jesus. You must accept him as the son of God, and then you will see God and get to know him. He will speak to you in dreams and speak to you in the Holy Spirit. The only way you can receive the holy spirit is if you ask for him after you get saved. You need to say “Oh, lord Holy Spirit, I accept you, please come into my heart”. With this simple prayer, you will receive the spirit and from that day you will be guided by it.
Once you receive the Holy Spirit, you will be guided day and night by it. And in everything, you pray and you will be shown the right way, right decision to make. The spirit that Jesus promised for his believers. The spirit send your prayers to the Father.
In a near accident your life will be saved as God is in the spirit and his guardian angels who follows you will save your life just in time. This is why you can boldly do any stunt, any sport or any dangerous act boldly, as the angels will be there to protect you from any danger. For example even in a midair airplane disaster, you will escape unscathed. And in a motor cycle accident you will be unhurt, as in the case of my personal experience.
John 17:21- “that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”
Here Jesus is saying just as the Father is in him, all the born again, saved Christians will also be joined with Jesus in union, like branches in a tree. The Head of the tree will be Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, the Trinity.
“that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”
And when that happens the world will realize that Jesus is truly the son of God, the Father.
“For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”
Here, the most important fact about Jesus is revealed, which is without him one can not reach or access the Father who is in heaven. Jesus is the only mediator between man and god.
Whenever you sin, Jesus defends you. He tells the Father to forgive you. It does not matter how great your sins are, he will always defend you. Remember he laid down his life for you. With his precious blood that was shed for your sins, your sins will and have been washed away. He came that you will have life, and life more abundantly. Never forget that.
There is no dispute that the Father and Jesus are one. As it was requires by the father that his only-begotten son must pay the penalty for all sins in the world. Jesus died on the cross and shed his blood and through it the mankind was saved of sin.
Now you may ask how can that be. To make a long story short, God the father originally created man to have communion with Him. But Adam disobeyed him. Adam was influenced by Eve to sin. And he did sin by eating from the tree of knowledge.
This is how sin entered the world and since that day every person who was born carried that sin to the world in them.
” God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM” and he said, say this to people of Israel ” I AM has sent me to you”
here God boldly declare who he is. He is sending a strong message to Israelis that he is the sovereign God.
” And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
The Word of God became flesh in Jesus Christ. Here the writer emphasis that Jesus is the only son of God. So there is no reason for anyone to disbelieve it and expect another son or Messiah. And we have already seen the return of Jesus who temporarily went to hell and come back to earth gloriously to be with the father.
John 5:22- ” The Father judges no one but has given all judgment to the son”
” The Father judges no one but has given all judgment to the son”
Jesus decides who has sinned, and unless you confess and repent of your sins, you will not be forgiven. For the father to assign such an important position to Jesus confirms again that he is truly the son of God.
It clearly shows that Jesus and the Father are One (John10:30) There is no doubt about it.
And nobody has seen the Father and only Jesus has seen him and is seated at the right-hand side of Father, God. He also said “Father and I are one”
And most important thing to remember, if you are a born again Christian, you are joined with Jesus and the Father by the spirit of God that lives in you. And anytime of the day you can call upon Him and he will answer. He will come to your aid.
I would like to leave you with the most important words Jesus declared in John 10:15–
“Just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.”
Here clearly it shows that Jesus knew that he is the son of God and that he gave his life for the mankind.
