is the living One.
fulfills everything as He says,
and the One He sent judges with the authority He received (Jn 5:22),
but He distinguishes the living and the dead (Jn 6:26-29).
Jesus Christ is the command who came on this earth (Jn 10:17-18).
He is the Word of God (Jn 1:14).
He fulfills everything on earth as He commands,
but He discerns the righteous and the wicked
and discerns God’s children and the devil’s children.
The work of Jesus cannot be judged by man’s wisdom (Jn 8:38).
Since it is done through the Holy Spirit, everything is possible (Acts 1:8).
Jesus’ relatives said, “He is out of His mind” (Mk 3:21)
and went to take a hold of Him.
The teachers of the Law said, “He is possessed by Beelzebul” (Mk 3:22)
and, “He drives out demons by the prince of demons.”
He warned that this
is the sin of blaspheming the Holy Spirit (Mt 12:31-37).
Whoever blasphemes the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven in this age or the next.
○ Today, hypocritical and religious people
persecute Jesus Christ,
and mock and condemn the Holy Spirit’s power.
○ There is no power of the Holy Spirit because there is no truth.
If you know the truth, you will be abundantly free.
Jesus gave us His power.
○ Since you save people’s spirits only after you tie up a strong man,
salvation is fact and reality.
Only those stronger than the devil can subdue him.
※ The power we received
is the power of Jesus that the world persecuted.
But Jesus’ power is the same yesterday, today and forever.
