“If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true”. The Lord is preparing everyone to the promise of God, and to be the shining light. In verse 39; telling us to search the scripture, understand and reverse the scripture. Moses wrote of him. All the prophesies wrote of the Messiah Jesus the Lover of the world. The word witness talking Jesus Christ took a kind of place to be the witness of the Lord has the eternity, infinite as the unlimited powers revealing the power of the witness of the Sonship of the winning power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Coming to this world without nothing, result man to nothing. A man that can be of helper, the benefactor, a constant companion brings an exploit in your life. What you know, who you know and How you know Him. Jesus Christ, we know his word ,His promise and His power and His word about Him tells all the identifying mark of Himself. His scrip speaks about Him, and the more you know Him (Jesus Christ), the more new great things happens in your life in your life.
THE RECOGNITION OF THE SAVIOUR BY HIS FORERUNNER. John 5:30; John 1:6-8; Matthew 3:1-5,11,12,15; John 1:29,33.
The forerunner, that came to Change life, the forerunner that bear witness “I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judges, and my judgement is just: because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the father which hath sent me”. The will of the father is to set every soul free, and the will of the father is to search the scripture. The forerunners, like John the Baptist leading the people to the truth. The Lord is reminding us of the forerunner (John the Baptist) the man who gave his totality to God. In John 1:6-8; God is Calling us to believe ” John bare witness of him, and and cried, saying. This was he of who I speak, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me”. John the Baptist prepare the way “And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand”.
THE RE- AFFIRMATION OF THE SON BY THE FATHER. John 5:36,37; Matthew 3:15-17; Matthew 17:1-5; 2Peter 1:16-18.
John the Baptist is a great witness from heaven but God is the Greatest Witness. The Father gave him power, the anointing to do exploit ” And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Yevhave neither heard this voice at any time, nor seen his shape”. The heavenly Father as declared, that Jesus Christ his only begotten Son “For we have not follow cunningly devised fabies, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eye witness of his majesty”.
Jesus Christ the Son of God, the one that is send from heaven ” And ye are witness of this things” John the Baptist was the great witness, send from heaven and Jesus Christ is the Only supreme witness.
THE REVELATION OF THE SCRIPTURE AS THE FOUNDATION. John 5:39; Luke 24:27,32, 45; Matthew 21:42; Acts 8:30-35; John 5:45-47; Genesis 49:10; Exodus 12:3,12.
Moses wrote about Jesus Christ:-
√ As the seed of the woman [Genesis 49:10].
√ As the Shiloh [Exodus 12:3,12]
√ As the Passover Lamb [Leviticus 17:11]
√ As the Atonement [Number 21:8,9; John 3:14; Number 24:17]
√ As the Star [Revelation 22:16]
√ As the Prophet to come [Deuteronomy 18:15-16,19; Acts 3:22,23].
The proclamation of the Lord is found in the scripture ” And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he empowered unto them the prophet ,he expounded unto them in all the scripture the things concerning himself”.
The witness concerning Jesus Christ has been written in the scripture ” Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus “. Jesus said, Moses wrote of Him ” But if ye believe not his writing, how shall ye believe my word”.
