Do you believe? John 14:1-6. 1:Do not let your hearts…
Do you believe?
1:Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.
2NIV:My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?
3NIV:And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
4NIV:You know the way to the place where I am going.”
5NIV:Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
6NIV:Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
The issue of salvation or being saved is tired around believing in the father and the Son. Because whoever has the Son have the father.
In John 8 Jesus was discussing with the Pharisees and he told them to believe unless they die because of their unbelieve. He told them to believe that he is He.v24. This means that unbelieve is worst than Satan himself.remember the book of Jude.
In vs 30_32 the issue that was discussed is about the believing Jews or those who had believe in Jesus, and I saw that Jesus was telling them the gospel truth of the kingdom, it is not a enough just to believe, to believe is good, infact is very very good. But to continue believing in him is very much better. like Dr Ezekiel buba. Will say there is benefits in what you know.
Jesus told them if you continue or hold on to me you are my disciples indeed and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. if you have been a student of the word you will know that Jesus is that truth. This means if they (you) continue believing you will know Which is the truth.
What is the benefit in knowing the truth.
1: it set you free.even from covid 19
2:it gives you joy.even in a lockdown.
3:it gives you hope for a better tomorrow.
4: you gain free salvation which is by grace and not by works.
5:in revelation 4:8 it speaks of sure security.pls believe in Jesus he has no political promises that will not come to pass. Jesus is Lord (God) He is not a Nigerian politician BELIEVE HIM.today.
