23 And Jesus answered and said to him, "If a man loves me, he will obey my spoken words; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our home with him5 [in his heart; and they live in a kingdom, into which you are translated. When you are translated into the kingdom, (while still alive on earth), you also see Him. Jesus appears in your heart. Jesus is revealed. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them, and be their God." Rev 21:3.]
24 He who doesn't love me, does not obey my spoken words; and the spoken words that you hear are not mine, but are the Father's who sent me.
|1 John 5:3 |
3 For this is the love of God, that we keep [obey] his commands; and his commands are not burdensome. [To keep his commands is to fulfill the law, walking in the light as children of light, in loving obedience to the total control of the Lord's Word and Light in your heart, (who is the Spirit of Christ), which Word and Light control and supply your thoughts, words, and deeds.]
