“The “Commandments” of Jesus (God’s Love Language 8)
 
“The one having My commandments and keeping them, he is the one loving Me. Now the one loving Me will be loved by My Father. And I will love him, and will show Myself to him.”
John 14:21 (Berean Literal Bible)
 
John chapter 13 all through to chapter 17; have heartfelt thoughts of Jesus.
He gave them household instructions, to guide them. He explained things that will bring them into deep intimacy with Him. He affirmed at different times, the promise of the Holy Spirit and the work of the Spirit.
 
We saw from previous teaching that, the commandments of Jesus are:
 
  • -authoritative prescription; thus, whatever He tells you to do, helps and provides you with a specific enablement and solution. Now get this, the authority of Jesus, is not to issue demanding orders. The authority of Jesus is to supply you with ability and directives, unto a designed purpose of God. (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 1:22)
  1. -the commandments of Jesus are not burdensome. (1John 5:3).
  2. -His commandments which are His words are spirit and life. (John 6:63). His commandments infused into you the ability of the spirit-life.
  3. -His commandments or words are designed to produce joy in you (John 15:11).
  4. -the commandments of the Lord are His household instructions. They are not for the world; they are for those who belong to Him. Those who are part of the special household.
And the truth is, the commandments of the Lord cannot be received and kept by the world. They are kept by those who are loved by Him.
Remember, to keep His commandments is a product of His love in you. His love empowers you to keep His commandments. Thus, those who have not received Him, don’t have His love and cannot keep His commandments.
 
Jesus replied, “Loving me empowers you to obey my word. And my Father will love you so deeply that we will come to you and make you our dwelling place.” John 14:23 (The Passion Translation)
 
Now, all through the Gospel of John, we see Jesus giving out certain commandments.
He commanded the disciples; He commanded the sick and even the dead.
Jesus commanded His disciples to “receive”, to “ask”, to “believe”, to “abide” and even commanded them not to let their heart be troubled.
He also commanded Peter to “Feed His flock”.
Understand that Jesus’ commandments are His words. I have already established this with you.
Interestingly, He commanded Lazarus to come out.
He commanded the cripple to rise.
He commanded the offender to go and sin no more.
He commanded, His disciples to do the works that He they saw Him do and even greater.
He commanded them to love as He has loved.
For the things Jesus said, His audience never saw it as impossible things to do. This was because His words were the empowering ability they needed to do.
The cripple couldn’t walk, but when He asked the cripple to walk, those words generated fresh power and strength in his limps.
Lazarus (who was dead) came back to life, by the words of Jesus.
This clearly drives the reality home; that the commandments of Jesus are designed skillfully by Him, to empower you and not to burden you with a yoke of bondage.
His commandments makes you become.
Selah,
DIG DEEPER
(John 1:12; 8:11; John 11:8; 12:36; John 14:1; 14:11; John 15:4;7; John 20:22 )
 
WE PRAY
– We pray that we will walk in the ability supplied to us through the Words of Jesus, to be consistent doers of the Word.
-We pray that many will look at us and see the manifestation and the fulfillment of the Word of God.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2023
Day 9: Job 23-28
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
The ability of the Words of Jesus are at work in me. I am a doer of the Word. Many see the results and productivity of the Word of God in me. I am quickened and enabled by the words of Jesus. The commandments of the Lord are my enablement.
Hallelujah!!!

Oh Glory to God!
Thank you Apostle for the insight…
Oh I am blessed…

His commandments are skillfully designed by Him to enable us to do…
His commandments are not burdensome but produce in us the ability of the spirit-life. For they are spirit and life. His commandments are also meant to produce joy in us [the posture of the kingdom]. The authority of Jesus is not to issue demanding orders, the authority of Jesus is to enable us with the ability, unto a designed purpose of God.

Thank you once again Sir.
