John 5:43

King James Version

43 I am come in my Father's name, 

and ye receive me not: 

if another shall come in his own name, 

him ye will receive.

What do you think was one of the most important teachings of JESUS?

What was He consistent about?

What did He kept asking us to do?

I let the idea simmer in my heart last night.

And this morning, SPIRIT gave the defining verses.

Let JESUS tell us, Himself:

Luke 11:1-2

King James Version

11 And it came to pass, that, 

as he was praying in a certain place, 

when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, 

Lord, teach us to pray, 

as John also taught his disciples.

2 And he said unto them, 

When ye pray, say, 

Our Father which art in heaven, 

Hallowed be thy name. 

Thy kingdom come. 

Thy will be done, 

as in heaven, 

so in earth.

Luke 22:42-43

King James Version

42 Saying, 

Father, if thou be willing, 

remove this cup from me: 

nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, 

strengthening him.

Luke 22:29-30

King James Version

29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, 

as my Father hath appointed unto me;

30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, 

and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Luke 23:46

King James Version

46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, 

he said, 

Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: 

and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

John 5:19

King James Version

19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, 

Verily, verily, I say unto you, 

The Son can do nothing of himself, 

but what he seeth the Father do: 

for what things soever he doeth, 

these also doeth the Son likewise.

John 5:26-27

King James Version

26 For as the Father hath life in himself; 

so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, 

because he is the Son of man.

John 5:30

King James Version

30 I can of mine own self do nothing: 

as I hear, I judge: 

and my judgment is just; 

because I seek not mine own will, 

but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

John 5:36

King James Version

36 But I have greater witness than that of John: 

for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, 

the same works that I do, bear witness of me, 

that the Father hath sent me.

John 6:37-38

King James Version

37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; 

and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

38 For I came down from heaven, 

not to do mine own will, 

but the will of him that sent me.

John 6:39

King James Version

39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, 

that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, 

but should raise it up again at the last day.

John 6:40

King James Version

40 And this is the will of him that sent me, 

that every one which seeth the Son, 

and believeth on him, 

may have everlasting life: 

and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 6:44

King James Version

44 No man can come to me, 

except the Father which hath sent me draw him: 

and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 6:57

King James Version

57 As the living Father hath sent me, 

and I live by the Father: 

so he that eateth me, 

even he shall live by me.

John 17:2-3

King James Version

2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, 

that he should give eternal life 

to as many as thou hast given him.

3 And this is life eternal, 

that they might know thee the only true God, 

and Jesus Christ, 

whom thou hast sent.

John 17:4

King James Version

4 I have glorified thee on the earth: 

I have finished the work 

which thou gavest me to do.

John 17:6-7

King James Version

6 I have manifested thy name unto the men 

which thou gavest me out of the world: 

thine they were, 

and thou gavest them me; 

and they have kept thy word.

7 Now they have known that 

all things whatsoever thou hast given me 

are of thee.

John 17:8

King James Version

8 For I have given unto them 

the words which thou gavest me; 

and they have received them, 

and have known surely that I came out from thee, 

and they have believed that thou didst send me.

John 17:12

King James Version

12 While I was with them in the world, 

I kept them in thy name: 

those that thou gavest me I have kept, 

and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; 

that the scripture might be fulfilled.

John 17:14

King James Version

14 I have given them thy word; 

and the world hath hated them, 

because they are not of the world, 

even as I am not of the world.

John 17:17

King James Version

17 Sanctify them through thy truth: 

thy word is truth.

John 17:18

King James Version

18 As thou hast sent me into the world, 

even so have I also sent them into the world.

John 17:19

King James Version

19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, 

that they also might be sanctified 

through the truth.

John 17:22

King James Version

22 And the glory which thou gavest me 

I have given them; 

that they may be one, 

even as we are one:

John 17:23

King James Version

23 I in them, 

and thou in me, 

that they may be made perfect in one; 

and that the world may know 

that thou hast sent me, 

and hast loved them, 

as thou hast loved me.

John 17:24

King James Version

24 Father, 

I will that they also, 

whom thou hast given me, 

be with me where I am; 

that they may behold my glory, 

which thou hast given me: 

for thou lovedst me 

before the foundation of the world.

John 17:25

King James Version

25 O righteous Father, 

the world hath not known thee: 

but I have known thee, 

and these have known 

that thou hast sent me.

John 17:26

King James Version

26 And I have declared unto them thy name, 

and will declare it: 

that the love wherewith thou hast loved me 

may be in them, 

and I in them.

JESUS was entirely devoted to GOD.

And He taught us that, consistently.

It's always been about the FATHER's will.

All that JESUS did, conformed to that.

All that He taught us, was to obey GOD's will.

Man continues in rebellion, defying that.

But GOD's will be done.

A true born again knows that.

And never challenges it.

That's how you know if you are GOD's own.

We are in complete obedience to GOD's will.

Just as the LORD JESUS taught us.
