What Does It Mean To Love Jesus?

  1. 1. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LOVE JESUS?<br />Great Commission Ministries<br />JESUS CHRIST<br />I AM THAT I AM<br />
  2. 2. Love Jesus above All!<br />Mat 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. <br />Mat 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. <br />Mat 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. <br />Mat 10:40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. <br />
  3. 3. FOR MY SAKE!<br />Mat 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. <br />Mat 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. <br />
  4. 4. According to Jn. 14:23-24<br />John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. <br />John 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father&apos;s which sent me. <br />
  5. 5. Jn. 14:15-18 &quot;If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.&quot; I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.&quot; <br />WE ARE NOT COMFORTLESS BECAUSE HE IS THE COMFORTER! <br />
  6. 6. The Holy Spirit hadn&apos;t &quot;been given&quot; at this point.<br />This is before the Day of Pentecost.<br />Jesus said the Spirit of truth dwellethWITH you, and shall be in you.&quot; <br />He was the One who dwelt among men. <br />
  7. 7. Today, we hear in many denominations who teach 3 persons of God say receive Christ in your heart. <br />Then they say the Holy Spirit dwells in you. And according to Eph. 4:6 &quot; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.&quot; According to the trinitarian, you have 3 persons in you. But According to the Word, there is 1 in you. <br />Isaiah 9:6 &quot;the son(Jesus) is called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.&quot; Those names are not referring to 3 or more different persons but only 1. <br />WHEN WE KEEP HIS WORD, WE SHOW WE LOVE HIM!! <br />
  8. 8. The Lord says in Jn. 15:13 &quot;Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his lifefor his friends.&quot; <br />Remember, God is a Spirit according to Jn. 4:24.<br />There is only 1 God, the Father according to 1Cor. 8:6.<br />God became flesh according to 2Tim. 3:16 & Matt. 1:23.<br />Jesus was a man. 1Cor. 15:21 &quot;For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.“ Verse 47 &quot;The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.&quot; <br />
  9. 9. Common Bible interpretation…<br />Jn. 3:16 says &quot;God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son..&quot; To understand this with the intellect, it would appear to agree with the 3 persons of God teaching.<br />The problem is if the Son who is not the Father laid down his life then it disagrees with the scriptures that were just referred to in this paragraph.<br />Eg. What kind of love would I be displaying if I was walking with my son and we saw someone in the middle of the street who was about to get hit by a car, and I told him to run out there and push the person out of the way of the car? My son ends up getting hit and dies. <br />
  10. 10. I was totally capable of running out into the street to push the person myself.<br />THAT ISN&apos;T LOVE!! THAT IS SELFISHNESS!! <br />How do those who believe in the 3 persons of God see that as love? An act of love on my part would have been if I would have gone out in the street to push the person out of harms way, it isn&apos;t love to send someone else to do something you are can do yourself! That is an act of a COWARD!<br />
  11. 11. 1Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. <br />
  12. 12. Acts 7:51 &quot;Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.&quot; Who were their &quot;fathers&quot; resisting?<br />1Cor. 10:1-5 &quot;Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant how that all our fatherswere under the cloud, and were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; and did all eat the same spiritual meat; and did all drink the same spiritual drink; for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. <br />Verse 9 &quot;Neither let us tempt Christ as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.&quot; <br />How do these verses agree with the teaching of the trinity? Are there 3 persons of God or 1 person?<br />
  13. 13. Jn.20:17 &quot;Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.&quot; <br />Verse 28 &quot;And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.&quot; If Jesus is God and not the Father, is there another God? He says the Father is his God. Yet when Thomas calls Jesus my Lord and my God, Jesus didn&apos;t correct him and say, No Thomas, my Father is your God.<br />Why? Because the Son is the Father in the flesh. He was in his earthly body(flesh). <br />
  14. 14. The flesh profiteth nothing. His heavenly &quot;body&quot; is Spirit. The Spirit giveth life. It goes back to the basics of understanding the Word of God&apos;s definition of God. <br />1Cor. 8:4 says &quot;..there is none other God but one.&quot; Verse 6 &quot;but to us there is but one God, the Father..&quot; <br />The scriptures declare this Truth, yet most men resist it and refuse to comprehend it. It doesn&apos;t agree with what their logic tells them.<br />1Cor. 1:25 &quot;Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men;..“<br />2Cor. 11:3 &quot;But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.&quot;<br />
  15. 15. Gen. 2:7 &quot;And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathedinto his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.&quot; <br />Jn. 20:22 &quot;And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost.&quot; He breathed &quot;physical&quot; life into Adam. <br />He breathed &quot;spiritual&quot; life into His disciples.<br />Notice, this was before His ascension that the disciples received the Holy Ghost. How could that be? Because HE IS THE SPIRIT!<br />
  16. 16. According to Jn. 16:13 &quot;Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth..&quot; the Holy Spirit guides us into all truth.<br />Jn. 14:6 &quot; Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life..&quot; He is the truth. Who better to guide us into all truth than He who is the truth. <br />Many contradictions and mysteries when understood as 3 persons. Truth becomes clear when God is understood as 1! <br />
