earliest prophecies the prophet had said

Lord who believed what we told them who

believes our world a word I asked you

who believes my word who believed what

we told them

who has seen the Lord his power who has

seen the Lord

but God has made their eyes blind those

who cannot see God cannot see the light

but only see their own profit and their

own ego and whatever and go to and fro

in the wind in the opinion and the words

of the world for this God who has made

their eyes blind and their hearts hard

for fear that they might see with their

eyes and get knowledge with their hearts

and repent and be changed and the Lord

might make them well

everyone who puts the words of our Lord

Jesus to one side and doesn’t take them

too hard will be judged his word will

judge on the last day for God’s Word

does not return to Him void blessed be

your Lord blessed be your Lord and may

your greatest love may your first love

beyond to the Lord

and not onto the world in Jesus mighty

not living it but have faith in our Lord

and live in the light no matter what is

going on in your life amen amen and amen

speak unto the hearts of those who are

under the power of your voice i bind

every thought that is not of God

I cast down every stronghold every

domain every Dominion everything that

holds you in bondage every eye blinder

every beam every speck of dust is cast

down to the ground in Jesus mighty name

Amen

blessed be your Lord amen

John 12 verse 1

then six days before the Passover Jesus

came to Bethany where Lazarus was whom

Jesus had made to come back from the

dead so they made him a meal there and

he was waited on by Martha and Lazarus

was among those who were seated with him

at table then Mary taking a pound of

perfumed oil of great value put it on

the feet of Jesus and made him dry with

her hair and a house became full of the

smell of the perfume but one of his

disciples Judas Iscariot who was to give

him up said why was not this perfume

traded for three hundred Pence and a

mint money given to the poor he said

this not because he had any love for the

poor but he because he was a thief and

having the money bad took for himself

what was put into him

and then Jesus said let her be let her

keep what she has for the day of my

death the poor you have ever with you

but me you have not for ever a sobering

thought then a great number of the Jews

had news that he was there and they came

not only because of Jesus but so that

they might see Lazarus who had been dead

and to whom he had given life no they

was talk among the chief priests of

footing Lazarus to death of course they

want to put Jesus to death and of course

they want to put the evidence of him

bringing back to life what was dead they

want to put that away also for because

of him a great number of the Jews went

away and had belief in Jesus they went

away from where from following the chief

priests and the Pharisees the day after

a great number of people who were there

for the feast when they had the news

that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem took

branches of palm trees and went out to

him crying a blessing on him who comes

in the name of the Lord the king of

Israel hosanna in the highest

and Jesus saw a young ass and took his

seat on it as the writings say have no

fear daughter of Zion see your king is

coming seated on a young hands these

things were not clear to his disciples

at first but

when Jesus had been lifted up into his

glory then it came to their minds that

these things in the writings were about

him and that they had been done to him

now the people who were with him when

his voice came to Lazarus in the place

of the Dead and gave him life again had

been talking about it

and that was the reason the people went

out to him because it had come to their

ears that he had done this sign then the

Pharisees said one to another you see

you are unable to do anything the world

has gone after him now there were some

Greeks among the people who had come up

to give worship at the feast they came

to Philip who was of Bethsaida in

Galilee and made a request saying sir we

have a desire to see Jesus

Philip went and gave word of it to

Andrew and Andrew went to Philip he went

with Philip to Jesus and Jesus said to

them in answer the hour of the glory of

the Son of man has come truly I say to

you if a seed of grain does not go into

the earth and come to an end it is still

a seed and no more but through its death

it gives much fruit he who is in love

with life will have it taken from him

and he who has no care for his life in

this world will keep it for ever and

ever

the more you worry about this life the

more you’re closer to losing it the less

you worry about him the more you’re

likely to keep

ever notice who people who run after

money are always stressed out about it

might even god forbid have a heart

attack or something like that about it

those who are busy with other things

money comes to them because they’re not

busy with money John 12 verse 26 if any

man is my servant let him come after me

and where I am there my servant will be

if any man becomes my servant my father

will give him honor knowing my now is my

soul troubled and what am I to say

father keep me from this hour no for

this purpose have I come to this hour

remember the doctrine of the Bible

Christ Jesus came to be a savior for

sinners he took that cup of wrath

because of our transgressions he took it

so that we might not have to take it so

that me we might be deemed clean

righteous through his son verse 28

father give glory to your name then

there came a voice out of heaven saying

I have given it glory and I will give it

glory again hearing the sound a number

of people who were there said that it

was stunned err others said an angel was

talking to him jesus said in answer this

voice came not for me but for you

pay attention now in several places the

Word of God says that when God spoke it

was not to the benefit of Jesus but to

the benefit so that those who are in

hearing distance might believe John 12

verse 31 now is this world to be judged

now with the ruler of this world be sent

out and I if I am lifted up from the

earth will make all men come to me

this he said pointing to the sort of

death he would have lifted up on a cross

then the people in answer said to him

the law says that the Christ will have

life without end how say you then that

it is necessary for the Son of Man to be

lifted up who is this son of me the Word

of God is talking about eternal life

eternal communion with God in that New

Jerusalem where there is no temple but

God and the lamb are the temple where

there is nothing not a thing that gives

light but we are God lights it and the

lamb is the light but people who want to

see things in a worldly way I need the

facts ever ever looked at the facts that

some people call fast they’re not facts

they’re your perception when people

could only perceive the world not as a

sphere but as far as they could see they

said the world was flat now their

perception is that the world is round

a fact is a fact until it is disproven

the Word of God speaks about life in

different terms than what we can see

touch it speaks about a spiritual life

but the people were unable to understand

the words in that context and so it has

been then so it is now and so it will be

for a while because the world makes you

think that the things of the world are

more important than the things of God

John 12 verse 35 Jesus said to them for

a little time longer you for a little

time longer the light will be among you

while you have the light go on walking

in it so that the dark may not overtake

you 1 walking in the dark has no

knowledge of where he is going if you’re

not walking with Jesus if you’re not

walking in knowledge of the Spirit you

have no idea where you’re going you make

plans and you hear advice from this one

and that one because they have been

through this and they know this and they

know that but when you walk in the dark

in the wisdom of the world you have no

knowledge of where you are going insofar

as you have the light then put your

faith in the light so that you may

become sons of light with these words

Jesus went away and for a time was not

seen again by them he continuously

speaks about the light you see if you go

out out of a city in a city there’s

always like but if you go out of a city

into the woods at night on a cloudy

night there is only darkness which way

is which you have no idea

Christ is trying to explain to us that

he is the light his words guide you

scripture guides you he guides you the

way the way but if you reject that way

because it is impractical not scientific

I don’t understand it

whatever your reasoning may be your

reasoning maybe you are in the dark

alone in the woods at night under heavy

cloud covering without knowing which way

is which not even seeing the tips of

your hand the tips of your fingers bless

it be your Lord for being or low our

light so insofar as you have the light

put your faith in him so that you may

become sons of light people who know

which way is which for the Word of God

is sharper than any two-edged sword able

to separate flesh from bone able to make

a division between what is right and

what is wrong with these words Jesus

went away and for a time was not seen

again by then but though he had done

such a number of signs before them they

still had no belief in him you see

people who think a certain way they tend

to push away everything

everything that proves that they are

wrong and they hold on to that one

common to that one thing that proves

their way because they are guided by

their ego by their pride the downfall of

all men John 12 verse 38 so that the

words of the prophet Isaiah might come

true when he said Lord who has any

belief in our preaching and the arm of

the Lord to whom has it been unveiled

Lord who has believed or preaching I ask

you Lord who has believed or preaching

and your power Lord who has seen your

mighty outstretched arm Lord for this

reason you are chosen for this reason

they were unable to have belief because

Isaiah said again he has made their eyes

blind and their hearts hard for fear

that they might see with their eyes and

get knowledge with their hearts and be

changed and I might make them well

Isaiah said these words because he saw

his glory his words were about him

however a number even of the rulers had

belief in him but because of the

Pharisees because of the church

authority who were able to take them out

of worldly fellowship yes I said that I

just said that they did not say so

openly for fear that they might be shut

out from the synagogue

disfellowship for the praise of men was

the error to them than the approval of

God then Jesus said with a loud voice he

who has faith in me has faith not in me

but in him who sent me remember Jesus is

speaking to the Jewish nation most of

them there were Jews except for the top

rulers and the top soldiers who were

Romans remember Israel was being

oppressed at that time there was no

freedom there was basically slaves read

about the Roman Empire and he who sees

me sees him who sent me he who has faith

in me has faith not in me but in him who

sent me and he who sees me sees him who

sent me in those days if you could see

Jesus you saw God is spirit in these

days if you can see Jesus you are seeing

God this spirit for Jesus is Lord I have

come verse 46 as a light into the world

so that you might see God I have come as

a light into the world so that no one

who has faith in me will go on living in

the dark without knowledge of who and

what God and if any man gives ear to my

words and does not keep them I am NOT

his judge I did not come to be judge of

the world but to give salvation to the

world

the doctrine of Christianity Christ

Jesus came to be a savior for all

sinners he who puts me on one side and

does not take my words to heart is not

without a judge the word which I have

said will be his judge on the last day

for God’s Word does not return to Him

void does not return to him without

effect for I have not said it on my

authority but the father who sent me

gave me orders what to say and how to

say and I have knowledge that his order

is eternal life so that the things which

I say I say them even as the father says

them to me in the beginning was the word

and the Word was with God and the Word

was God the same was in the beginning

with God all things were made by him and

without him was not anything made that

was me in him was life and a life was

the light of men and the light shines in

darkness and the darkness understands it

not that was the true light which lights

every man that comes into the world he

was in the world and the world was made

by him take note the word which was God

the word which became

flesh and dwelt among us Jesus he was in

the world and the world was made by him

and the world knew him not he came on to

his own and his own received him not

those who worshipped God those who

worshiped him for the word was God but

as many as do so receive him to them he

gives the power to become the sons of

God to them that believe on his name on

his name have faith in me and live in

the life those who believe on his name

which are born not of blood nor of the

will of the flesh or of the will of man

but of God and the Word was made flesh

and dwelt among us and we beheld his

glory the glory as of the only begotten

of the Father full of grace and truth

blessed be your Lord for no man has seen

God at any time the only begotten Son

the image of God the spirit which is in

the bosom of the Father he declares him

blessed be your Lord have faith in our

Lord and live in the life

in the beginning was the word and the

Word was with God and the Word was God

and that word is in the beginning was

the word and a word the power of God in

the beginning was the word and that word

is his name is Jesus light of the world

Jesus king over Kings his name is Jesus

bread of life Jesus the Word of God his

name is Jesus light of the world Jesus

God with us
