John 3:18 to 21, Light or Darkness, and Truth or Evil.

"Mark 16:15 preach the gospel to every creature. Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded: Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega,... 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, ... have right to the tree of life, and... enter ... the city."

"John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."

Man Jesus does not exist anymore, and Begotten Son is God

Jesus was speaking to Nicodemus. But, he is speaking to all of us. "John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." We studied this verse on the previous day. I like to follow up one point. Why they are condemned? It is "because he hath not believed in the name of the .. begotten Son .." So, this verse say that we must believe in the name of his 'begotten Son'. We studied from the scripture that "Begotten Son" is not the Man Jesus, who died on the cross; but he is the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, who is in the omnipotent Spirit body, as God. Jesus does not exist as a man anymore, but he exist as the begotten Son, that is, as God in the Spirit. If we do not believe this begotten Son Jesus, we are condemned already. This is what this verse says. 2 Corinthians 5 says, "15 .. he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again." That is, since he died for all, we must live for him. "16 ..: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more." These are those who were with Jesus before his death, they knew each other well, and now they don't want to remember him in the flesh anymore, because he is not in the flesh anymore. Instead, he is in the omnipotent Spirit. So, the Jesus Christ in the Spirit, is the true Jesus. Be honest. Think for yourself, whether our churches accept the man Jesus as God, or do they accept the resurrected Lord Jesus, who is in the omnipotent Spirit, as God. I see that we have accepted the legend of the 'man Jesus' as God, but not the Jesus in the Spirit. The man Jesus was real until he died on the cross. After that, the true Jesus is the Jesus in the Omnipotent Spirit. He is God.

Evil people will not come to Jesus the Light.

John 3:19 says, "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." It says that light is come to the world. The light refers to the presence of Jesus. He was present as a man for 30 years, and as resurrected God Jesus Christ for more than 2000 years. As a man, many Jews saw the light, but no gentiles saw it, since his ministry was not with the gentiles when he was a man. Matthew 4:16 says, "The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up." Many Jews who were in the outskirts of Jerusalem, saw the light and have benefited from the light. But, as the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, he is seen all over the entire world from the shadow of death for the last two thousand years. Isaiah 60:3 says ".. the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising." This covers mostly Gentiles, by the resurrected Jesus Christ as the bright Light, all over the world. "Luke 2:32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel." It covers both Jews and gentiles, it is both as man Jesus as well as resurrected Lord Jesus, who is in the Spirit, who is the begotten Son, who is God. However, we Christians seem ignorant and are rejecting the real true spiritual presence of the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ among us. We seems to run behind the legend of the man Jesus, who does not even exist. Please, think with sound mind. Jesus died on the cross, resurrected and ascended to heaven. He was glorified, got into omnipotent Spirit with all power given to him, declared as begotten Son, who is God, anointed as God, became Lord and Christ, and was sent back to the world to turn his people from their iniquities and sins. He also gives power to his people to become his sons. He is no longer a man, but he is omnipresent God. The man Jesus does not exist after that. Why Christians do not receive the real presence of this true resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, who is in the Spirit? Instead they have clung on to the legend of the Man Jesus as their God, and reject the real true God Jesus Christ. The Bible calls this 'man Jesus' as  another Jesus. This Jesus is not real, he is imaginary, religious, traditional, and he is like a legend. Why do we pick up a substitute legend, leaving behind the original resurrected true Jesus Christ in the Spirit, who have all powers of God? Verse 19 says, that they embrace the legend, because they love darkness, which is sin. They do evil. Verse 20 says, "For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved." That is, evil people will never come to the true Light, because the true Jesus Christ, or the true Light will reprove them, as he has reproved the Pharisees, Scribes and the priests, for their sins, when he was a man. So, they will not come to the Light, who is the true Jesus Christ.

Another Jesus will not Reprove Sinning People

Now, the preachers have another Jesus, who will love sinners, but not reprove their deeds of sins. They preach Jesus as the man, who is doing good even now, he is love, compassionate, understanding, not condemning, helping, make them prosperous, healing, have unconditional love, died in their place, paid for all of their sins, and so on and so on. But they will never preach what Jesus Christ was preaching you and me to obtain the kingdom of God. What they preach is not the true Jesus Christ. The presence of the true Jesus Christ, who is the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, will reprove our sinful deeds in a supernatural way, and it will hurt. He will chastise his people. Christians do not want him, but rather they will be with the imaginary Jesus, who will not reprove them. Unfortunately, such a Jesus does not exist for the last two thousand years. "2 Corinthians 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him." The true Jesus Christ wants you to be a chaste virgin. It is a figure of speech, he means that he wants you to be pure, but not to hide behind a false grace to keep sinning. But, as Satan deceived Eve, preachers deceive Christians with another Jesus, who is so loving, understands and tolerates your sins with unconditional love. Satan is hiding behind this another Jesus. True Jesus is the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, who is now in the world turning his people away from their sins, but not tolerating and understanding their sins.

What is Truth that we must do?

John 3:21 says, "But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." What is truth? "John 16:13 says, .. the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: ...(So, the Holy Ghost is the Spirit of truth, he will guide us to do the truth.) 14 says ... He shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. (So, the things of Jesus Christ is truth, and they are righteousness and holiness.) 15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall show it unto you. (So, all things of God the Father is truth.)" Most importantly, God wants us to do the truth, that is to do what Jesus Christ tells us to do. This truth qualifies us to inherit the kingdom of God, if we do them. "John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." If we continue in the words of Jesus, which are the preaching of Jesus Christ, but not in the preaching of preachers, that is if we do what Jesus Christ tells us to do, we will know the truth, and the truth will make us free. Free from what?; from sins and iniquities. God will manifest that we are wrought or made by him. How? The Bible says, that we will be made like Jesus, and we will be glorified like Jesus Christ, and when we see him, we will be like him. It is the workmanship of God. How many of you want to be the workmanship of God? Please come to the Light, who is the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, who is God in the Spirit.

Jews and Christians have Rejected Jesus Christ

When Jesus Christ came as a man, his enemies were the Jewish religious people. They were representing God and his temple. Even now, the Bible says that the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ is here in this world for the last 2000 years, going to only those who are looking for him, according to Hebrew 9:28. It says "... unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation, ..", he turns them away from iniquities and sins by his power. But it seems that church has nothing to do with this Jesus Christ, in the same way that the Jewish religious people and the temple authorities have rejected Jesus. Let us see what Jesus told those Jewish people of the temple. Now, he may say these same thing to the Christians of today. "John 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not." Today Jesus Christ tells the same thing to church people. Christians believe preachers rather than the word of God. Hebrews 9:28 says, "So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation." Acts 3:26 says, "Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities." Jesus came in the flesh to die for the sins of many. The Jews, who were supposedly godly people, rejected him. The second time Jesus has come to turn his people from iniquities and sins. Christians knew nothing about him, or we may say that the church leaders have rejected him, in the same way the Jewish leaders have rejected him the first time. This is the situation. If we look at the situation there is no hope. But, he has come to the world for a second time, and will appear to those who look for him. So, please look for him. He will appear to you, supernaturally. This is spiritual reality. You will receive power from him. You will be his son.

God Bless You
