The Lord Jesus promised everyone who loves and obeys Him.
Matthew 11:28 ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.’
John 16:33 ‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.’
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.’
The problem many people including many Christians have is that they do not know the Lord Jesus. They just read about him in the Bible so love a Jesus whom they imagine. Not a Lord and Saviour who with his Father comes and makes his home with them. Therefore they do not have the Holy Spirit of God empowering them to be holy and righteous. They are simply religious and burdened by the life they have. For all of us, life is not easy, but those who live with God, have his joy because of the hope they have of eternal life in Heaven where there is no hardship caused by ours and others wickedness.
For those whom have Jesus in them, have cause to be happy when they celebrate Christmas, even if their life is difficult. So there we have it, only those described by the Lord Jesus in John 14:23 can have a truly happy Christmas.
This video allows you to see the life and purpose of the Lord Jesus. Thus, when you study the Gospel of John in the Bible, you will have film to show you who was involved and where and the emotions that were involved. The Bible Text and the Film are a wonderful way to learn about the Lord Jesus and what his Gospel is. Remember, it is Jesus you have to learn about in order to fall in love with Him, not just the Bible and Church. John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.’
Veteran British filmmaker Philip Saville directs the religious epic The Gospel of John, a production of the Canadian company Visual Bible International. This three-hour drama attempts to accurately follow the Gospel According to John written sometime during the first century. The gospel contains four segments: an introduction to the nature of Jesus Christ; testimony by disciples and the presence of miracles; the Last Supper and crucifixion; and the appearance of the risen Christ. Henry Ian Cusick plays Jesus and Christopher Plummer provides voice-over narration. The Gospel of John was shown in a special presentation at the 2003 Toronto Film Festival. The Gospel of John was written two generations after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is set in a time when the Roman Empire controlled Jerusalem. Although crucifixion was the preferred Roman method of punishment, it was not one sanctioned by Jewish law. Jesus and all his early followers were Jewish. The Gospel reflects a period of unprecedented polemic and antagonism between the emerging church and the religious establishment of the Jewish people.
I first saw Jesus 69 years ago and have had the Holy Spirit in my life all that time. But it was about 29 years before I fully understood whom Jesus was and what he was offering me. So don’t be too hard on yourself during your own time of learning. The Holy Spirit of God will get you there if you truly love Jesus and learn HIS teaching. Sadly, there are Christians who will seek to teach you their version of Christianity, not Jesus’.
I do wish you with all my love a Blessed Christmas and may 2018 be a year in which you truly become a Follower of Jesus who will give you his Peace and Power as He, his Father and the Holy Spirit make their home with you. John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.’
