If you won't tolerate
having the evil you do exposed by God, you'll hate Jesus. You'll find out Jesus' teachings
come from God when you choose to apply the
principles of God to your life (this will help
you believe in Jesus). This work will honor God and make you a man or woman of
truth. Then you will have
given glory to God, and that's a great thing. If you are insensitive to this, then you're
a goner because you won't be able to believe. When God is in us, we have mercy on our
neighbor. (principles from JH6:66-8:11)
Jesus shows the world true life; follow Him and you will continually have it. Jesus came from God the Father and if you believe in Him you will not die in the midst of your harmful ways. Since Jesus always lives by and speaks according to what he learned from the Father, the Father is with him. If you hold to Jesus' teachings (one is to believe in Him), you are really his disciple and will know and be set free by the truth. People are enslaved by their harmful ways, but Jesus can set us free if we choose to accept the truth of His teachings for our lives. Otherwise, we will not recognize that Jesus is God, and does no harm. Repent, choose to follow Jesus, who is God, because you really need Him to live. (principles from JH8:12-59)
Serve, and do some of the lowly work. Jesus sends us to carry the gospel to people; if they accept us they accept Him and God. They will know we are His disciples by our love for each other. Do not be troubled. Trust in Jesus, and believe that He is coming back to take us to heaven. Jesus is the only true way to eternal life with God the Father. He is One with the Father, speaking and living the principles of God since they live in each other, as the miracles show. Believers will do what Jesus did and have His joy. Jesus loves and lives in them, and so does God the Father and the Holy Spirit. When Jesus and the Father see you continually applying their principles (one is to believe in them) and producing many lasting good results, they will give you whatever you ask for in Jesus' name, and Jesus will give you His peace as well. Whoever does not bear good results will be cut off from God and burned. Jesus knows you love Him by the way you apply the principles, which is summed up by loving each other as Jesus loves us. Doing much of this will bring glory to God, and He will reveal Himself to us. As you love, some who belong to the world and hate God may hate you for speaking about Jesus. Tell people about Jesus, even though some misjudge and hurt you. The Holy Spirit is here in the world convicting people of where they stand before God, and making the Father's principles known to us. Believing in Jesus brings God's love into your life, and through Him you can overcome this troublesome world. (principles from JH13:1-16:33)
Hating good will keep you from believing in Jesus. They who love good and can see that Jesus is doing good as God does good, will be protected from destruction by Jesus, who is one with God the Father Almighty/Creator. They will bring God into their life when they believe in Jesus, who they see and assess as doing the good of God, including miracles showing He is one with the Father. Repent, turn from your own sinful (harmful) ways, turn to God, choose to do His will and you will be enabled to experience the reality of Jesus Christ and truly believe in him for salvation into a new life with God. (principles from JH10:22-42)
