John 12:49-50

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 49 For I do not speak from myself, but the Father, who sent me, himself commands me what I should say and what I should speak.

 50 And I know that [to obey] his command is life everlasting. Therefore, whatever I speak is just as the Father tells me to speak."8 [Jesus did nothing in his will, only by the Father's will; this is what it means when you pray: thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. We have to learn and be changed to be able to only do the Father's will on earth, the same as the Father's will is done in heaven by the angels.]

1 Corinthians 2:13

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 13 Which things we speak, not in the words, which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit instructs;4 combining spiritual truths with spiritual words. [Regarding speaking words from the Holy Spirit: Jesus said: "whatever I speak is just as the Father has told me to speak. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him, that man is true, and there is no unrighteousness in him." John 12:50,7:18.]

2 Corinthians 2:17

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17 For we are not like so many, who peddle the word of God for profit; but we are speaking in Christ before God as persons of sincerity, as persons sent from God.2 [From the Word of the Lord within: "The gregarious make a living teaching the scriptures. We stand in the presence of God speaking forth His words as commanded." Unless you are sent to specific person(s), and unless you then only speak words as commanded, you are seeking your own glory: He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but he who seeks the glory of the One who sent him, that man is true, and there is no unrighteousness in him. John 7:18 ]

1 Peter 4:11

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 11 If any man speaks, [let it be] as God's oracles [words]; if any man ministers,[ let him do it] with the strength that God gives,3 so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ, to whom is the glory and power forever and ever. Amen. [Oracle — a message from the gods given by an oracle. From the Word of the Lord within: "A word spoken from the Spirit requires you to hear what the Spirit says to you. All and only words from Him are to be spoken." Jesus said: "whatever I speak is just as the Father has told me to speak. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him, that man is true, and there is no unrighteousness in him." John 12:50,7:18.]

John 7:18

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 18 He who speaks from himself [speaking his own words] seeks his own glory;1 but he who seeks the glory of the One who sent him, that man is true, and there is no unrighteousness in him. [If you are not specifically sent, and if you are deciding with your brain what to say, you are speaking from yourself and seeking your own glory. To be seeking God's glory and not your own, you must first be sent and then only speak words heard from the Spirit immediately before speaking. Jesus only spoke words, judged, and performed works as He was ordered by God. If you are speaking and/or working for God without being specifically ordered in each and every word and action, you are essentially claiming that your own words and deeds are superior to what Jesus' would be if he made his own decisions about what to say and do.]

Colossians 3:16

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 16 Let the word Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another [with words from Christ in your hearts] in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Let the word Christ richly dwell in you. If you give heed to my words, I will dwell in you and walk in you."]

 19 And pray for me, that utterance [of the word of God] may be given [by the Spirit] to me when I begin to speak2 — to confidently make known the mystery of the gospel, [For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what to say. Luke 12:12.]
