Rachel, please give me your thoughts
on this saying by Jesus.
The Son can do nothing of himself
but what he seeth the Father do.. John 5:19
(Why didn’t He say, the Son can do nothing
of himself, but what he ‘heareth the Father saying’?)
(We walk by faith, and not by sight)
2 Cor 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.
Hi Glenn — these are my thoughts on it … In John 5:19 Jesus was showing that He was God … the spirit of God in the flesh man body … that He and God were the one. Does that make sense?
As for the walking by faith not by sight … we don’t make our beliefs, judgments and decisions based on this flesh world that we see and our limited understanding that is derived from it, but on the wisdom and truth of God. This world is simply a shadow.
Thank’s Rachel, your so sweet.
Yes, makes sense.
(sorry for putting you on the spot).
Also I found this, Mark 4:12
That seeing they may see,
and not perceive.

Excellent, Rachel! I appreciate how you explain about the flesh and what that means – our will over God’s will for us. So thankful that He does make a way for us in this! Where would we be without Him??? Also, was just so touched and harkened by how you talked about us seeing the corruption of the Bible and the results of that all around us. The battle does indeed rage.
God bless you and strengthen you for the battles each day.
Hey Rachel, Eldon here.I recently happened on to your sight &know you are a member of Jesus’ church. I am reading all your articals knowing from each that the Holly Spirit is guiding you. The articals are helping me with the minute by minute feelings I should be having for other people. One thing I would pass on conserning this subject, as I am trying to not be critical of all who “claim” to be in the church of Jesus. Revelation 2:24 to the rest who do not hold all of Jesus’ teaching, because you have not learned what some call the deep things of satan, Jesus does not lay upon you any other burden. -I perceive this as, until one knows God’s truth or hears from the Holly Spirit they are not held totally accountable. However, this is the best reason to find the deep things of God &hold them as life. -If one is a true believer, we all have the same calling: go into the hyways &hedges & compell them to come to Jesus. -Jeremiah48:10
