What Will He Say?

Do you have the eyes to see and the ears to hear?  If you don’t know what I am talking about then I pray you will ask God right now to reveal Himself to you. One day we will stand before Him and we will surely all hear what He has to say on that day.

John 5:24-30
“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.  Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live.  For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself.  And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.  “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice  and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned.  By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.
COMMENTARY
Jesus continues his response to the religious leaders questioning His practice of healing on the Sabbath. On one hand, Jesus says that God the Father has granted the Son to have life in himself (vs. 26). Yet in vs. 30, Jesus says that He can do nothing by Himself – yet His judgment is just because He seeks not to please Himself but God the Father. The difficult truth coming through in these verses is that the purposes of Jesus and of God are one and the same. The religious leaders consider this heresy because Christ is claiming deity alongside of God.
