IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR JESUS TO DIE. . .
JESUS IS THE LIFE, HE IS LIFE ITSELF !
our life and . . . HE IS ETERNAL
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR JESUS TO DIE . . .
BUT THE BODY, APPEARS THAT IT CAN . . .
WHY DID JESUS ALLOW . . .
HIS BODY TO DIE ?
14 “I Am the good shepherd; I know My sheep and My sheep know Me— 15 just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father—and
"I lay down My LIFE for the sheep".
[JESUS IS EMPHASIZING: AND I KNOW YOU ! -YOU ARE MINE ! . . .and I GIVE MY ALL TO YOU THAT I WILL BE ALL TO YOU ! ]
JOHN 10: 7 Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep [To Life Eternal]. 8 All who have come before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. 9 I am the gate; whoever enters through Me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief [ ALL IN THE WORLD ] comes only to steal and kill and destroy [LITERALLY!] ; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. 11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His LIFE for the sheep. 12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
We must open are hearts ( very naturally as God meant us to be - leaning towards Him ) and receive what Jesus has done. What Jesus did is so marvelous, It is so dramatic, It causes all of existence to awake and breathe New Life and to know . . . WE BELONG TO GOD !
We should be . . . filled with GREAT JOY !
CUZ WE ARE FOREVER !
Jesus is saying "I give you all of My Heart, all of My Soul, all of My Love, all of My Life , ALL THAT I AM . . . TO GIVE ETERNITY TO YOU !"
Jesus is saying "I LAY DOWN MY LIFE ( THE VALUE AND TOTAL WORTH OF GOD HIMSELF ( MYSELF ) TO DECLARE YOU ARE MINE !!!!!!!! "
GOD DECLARES " ALL OF GOD, HAS YOU, (ALL IN JESUS) YOU ARE HIS, and He is yours,
(naturally what we are suppose to be)
in total ONENESS WITH GOD ! "
16 " I have other sheep that are not of this sheep fold. I must bring them also. They too will listen to My voice (naturally what ALL are suppose to DO), and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves Me is that I lay down My Life ( " I GIVE ALL OF MYSELF " ) —only to take It up again *(MAGNIFY IT). 18 No one takes It from Me, but I lay It down of My Own accord. I have authority to lay It down and authority to take It up again. This command I received from My Father.”
"Verily, I say to you Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it gives up all that it is, it produces much fruit ( a plentiful and full harvest ).”
Jesus said , “unless the seed is planted
and dies, New Life is not generated,” ( if you hold on to self it disintegrates ! )
( giving all of self produces multiplication, and magnifies what self is suppose to be, and lasts forever ).
Jesus laid down His body (a body just like ours) in this world with the greatest out pouring of all of Himself ( His body and blood ) which caused in the see-able world the maximum of REAL TRUTH AND LIFE ITSELF- to be DISPLAYED TO THE FULLEST, AND GIVING ALL TO US!
JESUS SHOWED HOW WORTHY, HOW VALUABLE, HOW SO MUCH ADORED
WE ARE TO HIM . . . WE ARE HIS VERY OWN !
( THERE IT IS, ' THE VALUE AND WORTH ' - WE ARE HIS VERY OWN ! ) JESUS PLACES ALL OF HIS LIFE , ALL THAT HE IS . . . ON THAT STATEMENT ! YOU ARE MY VERY OWN ! . . . AND I AM IN YOU ! WE ARE THE SAME ! THAT'S ETERNITY !
HIS LOVE IS JUST TOO TOO GREAT. . .SO IMPORTANT IN US ! SO GREAT HIS LIFE IN US !
NOTHING CAN STAND UP TO IT, AND IT CAN NOT BE OVERCOME BY ANYTHING !
HIS LIFE AND LOVE IN US !
. . . by HIS death, the giving of all of HIMSELF, ALL OF GOD, THIS TRUTH IS MAGNIFIED ! ( how magnificent to have Jesus Living in us ) GOD HIMSELF !
" how God so loved the world, that He gave
His only begotten Son "
GOD IS SO
JESUS ( HIMSELF ) IS LIFTED UP TO THE HIGHEST DEGREE.
( wow by Living in us ! )
1 Timothy 6:15 . . . which God will bring about in His (God's) own time—, the blessed and only Ruler, (Jesus) the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, 16 Who Alone is immortal and Who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To Him be honor and might forever.
They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because He (Jesus) is Lord of Lords and King of Kings—and with Him will be His called, chosen and faithful followers.”
On His robe and on His thigh He (Jesus) has this name written: King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
13 “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a Son of Man(JESUS) ,coming with the clouds of heaven. He(JESUS) approached the Ancient of Days(GOD) and was led into His presence. 14 He(JESUS) was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and His(JESUS) kingdom is one that will never END.
INFACT : Jesus' RESURRECTION becomes greater than creation ITSELF ! JESUS' RESURRECTION SECURES THAT WHAT IS GOD'S, IS REAL, REMAINS THE SAME, AND IS FOR ETERNITY!
22-23 Jesus answered, “The appointed time is now. The time has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
24-25 “Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over.
In the same way, anyone who holds on to his life, just as it is, destroys that life. But if you let it go, pouring out all of yourself your heart and soul, your love, all that you are, you’ll have it forever, real and eternal.
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT JESUS DID IN OUR PLACE, FOR
US - JESUS WAS THE ONE TIME, PERFECT SACRIFICE, ONCE FOR ALL, FOR ALL TIME, FOREVER ! He poured out all of Himself , His Heart and Soul, His Love, all that He Is, to MAGNIFY US WITH HIM FOREVER !
IN RESPONSE TO THIS GREATEST LOVE, WE ACCEPT WHAT HE BIRTHED IN US, AND WE GIVE ALL OF OURSELVES AND THAT IS EXACTLY - ALL OF HIS HEART AND SOUL, LIFE AND LOVE, HIS ALL AND ALL, IN US . . .TO BE ONE WITH HIM ! (what God naturally made to be)
THE SACRIFICE IS A GIVING OF ALL, TO EXPRESS ALL--
( THE GROOM GIVES ALL OF HIMSELF TO THE BRIDE, THE BRIDE GIVES ALL OF HERSELF TO THE GROOM ) and THERE IS A ONENESS-- a family IS BIRTHED !
1 John 4:17-18
To Love, IS to Be Loved
17-18 In this, is love perfected with us, that we may have confidence, because as He is (JESUS) so are we in this world. God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us.
JESUS FINISHED THE WORK HE WAS SENT TO DO. . .
TO REVEAL TO US ( THAT WE ' SEE ' AND ' KNOW ' ) GOD IS REAL, GOD IS ONE WITH US !
To Be Glorified Means – " To Be Honored, Lifted Up, Justly and Appropriately Acclaimed AND in the MOST MAXIMUM WAY " - that was done by God receiving Jesus BACK TO HIMSELF ( JESUS' ASCENSION IN ALL GLORY )
back to THE FULLNESS AND ALL OF GOD !
John 17:5 “Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.” [ Before CREATION. . . before all that is seen. . . time and space, all matter, the material world, you and me ! ]
BY THE VERY DISPLAY OF PERFECT LOVE . . .
A PERFECT MARRIAGE OCCURS
SOOO. . .COMPLETE, SOOO. . .REAL. . .
BODY + LIFE = ETERNITY (us) (Jesus) (GOD WITH US)
IF WE ARE INCOMPLETE> HE MAKES US COMPLETE .
JESUS CLEANSES US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS,
*( the thought of only ourself and all and any SEPARATENESS from God and others, accepting Jesus in us REVEALS we are all of God , with God and with everything
of God >WE ARE THE SAME ).
(naturally what we are suppose to be)
WHETHER IT IS MAKING A CAKE, OR MAKING US. . .
ALL OF THE INGREDIENTS ARE ALL OF GOD !
Psalm 148: 5 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for He commanded, and they were created. 6 He has also established them forever and ever: He has made a decree which shall not pass.
Jesus Prays to Be Glorified
1 After Jesus said this, He looked toward heaven and prayed:“Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son may glorify You. 2 For You granted Him authority over all people that He might give Eternal Life to all those You have given Him. 3 Now this is Eternal Life: that they know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent. 4 I have brought You glory on earth by finishing the work You gave Me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify Me in Your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
Jesus Prays for His Disciples
6 “I have revealed You to those whom You gave Me out of the world. They were Yours; You gave them to Me and they have obeyed Your word. 7 Now they know that everything You have given Me comes from You. 8 For I gave them the words You gave Me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from You, and they believed that You sent Me. 9 I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those You have given Me, for they are Yours. 10 All I have is Yours, and all You have is Mine. And glory has come to Me through them. 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, protect them by the power of Your name, the name You gave Me (Jesus), so that they may be one as We are one. 12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name (Jesus) You gave Me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.13 “I am coming to You now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of My joy with in them. 14 I have given them Your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15 My prayer is not that You take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one ( all that blocks the Love and Power of God towards them ). 16 They are not of the world (unable 'to see' and 'know' God), even as I am not of it. 17 Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth. 18 As you sent Me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify Myself, that they too may be truly sanctified [ HOLY as God is HOLY ].
Jesus Prays for All Believers
20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in Me through their message, 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. 22 I have given them the glory that You gave Me, that they may be one as We are ONE— 23 I in them and You in Me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that You sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved Me. 24 “Father, I want those You have given me to be with Me where I am, and to see My glory, the glory You have given Me because You loved Me before the creation of the world.25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know You, I know You, and they (My Own) know that You have sent Me. 26 I have made You known to them, and will continue to make You known in order that the love You have for Me may be in them and that I Myself may be in them.”
TOTAL UNITY AND ONENESS - we in Jesus, JESUS IN US, ALL IN THE FATHER.
3 John 2
Beloved, my wish above all things, is that you will prosper in all things, even as your soul prospers in Jesus, SO that His JOY
will be made full in you !
