October 11 ’16 Seeing What Really Is Part 7 ~Paul Gray
“The point of John’s gospel is that Jesus was face to face with His Father before creation and ALL THINGS came into being through Him. He became flesh to meet us in our great darkness and death, so that He could be in us, inside our darkness, and we could see with His eyes! We must see “All Things.” Today John would say: “How could anyone use my gospel to teach that God does not love the whole world? The father found us all, Jews and Gentiles, even the Romans, in Jesus!”
Jesus IS the eternal message of God to us!
T.F. Torrence said “Not God alone, but God and humanity together, constitute the meaning of the Word of God.”
John The Apostle would say: “Not God alone, but God and humanity together, constitute the meaning of JESUS!”
JESUS MEANS THAT GOD AND HUMANITY ARE TOGETHER FOREVER!
The opposite of together is separated.
JESUS MEANS THAT GOD AND HUMANITY ARE NOT SEPARATED, BUT TOGETHER IN UNION! AND THIS UNION IS THE WORD OF GOD! IT’S WHAT GOD IS SAYING TO US ALL!”
"For God has consigned all men to disobedience that He may have mercy on them all." Romans 11:32...Doesn't that just kick the bee-jabbers out of your theology?”
