He said, "I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me...," John 8:37. What makes you hate me so much that you want to kill me? "...you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this." John 8:40. Abraham would do good works, isn’t it?
Ask yourself Why can't I understand? Could it be because something, someone is preventing you from doing so; from believing, loving, understanding the truth of the gospel?
Jesus told them, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin..." John 8:34.
Can’t you realise that from the moment you first sinned you also ceased doing Abraham's works? Sin has been a stumbling block, and don’t you see now your father has become the devil? Jesus said, "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God" John 8:44-47. The reason of so much fear, unbelief and doubt could be because you’re not standing in truth anymore. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He’s in control and the source of that you ever think of or do.
We claim to be Christians, but how come we are different?
We believe and are different because some believers find it okay to have a demon that works to their personal advantage, But Jesus said, "I do not have a demon" John 8:49. Some pastors don’t mind studying demonology and practicing demonic beliefs. They don’t mind practising occult or having magical powers whose source is the devil, but Jesus said,"I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me."
You say God is your God? You may be kidding when you do that if you serve God and mammon because Jesus said if you do you don’t know Him. This is what you do when you know Him - you keep His word.
How is that we are different?
While others corrupt themselves, we seek that which proceeded forth and came from God, that we believe, not the one earthy. We want truth, the word of God, that which makes us free indeed, and we want the promise; "Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death" John 8:51.
