Living by the Words of the Father and Not the Law
“It seems your friend has grossly misread what Jesus actually said, but
it is a common mis-perception based upon a mind of legal expectations.
For it is not upon every word that PROCEEDED or CAME out of God’s mouth
… but every word that PROCEEDS or COMES from God’s mouth. A big, a
huge, a colossal difference!
Now, as the son of man, Jesus lived according to what he quoted.
could do nothing other. However, it was not the words of God that had
been written on stone that Jesus lived by, for the dead letter did
nothing for him. In fact, the Pharisees were often offended by his
flagrant disregard of what they had considered ”Every word that CAME
out of the mouth of God“.
Jesus himself saw his father’s doings and did what he did; he heard his
voice and spoke his words. He lived by every word that was coming out
of the mouth of his father.”
This is an excellent article on not using the Bible as God’s to do list for us. I pray all would knock themselves out (come to the end of themselves) trying to “do it” so we all can be open to listening and doing His true will His way.
