The post reads....'' The Great Lie is John 3:16 ''
So let's look at the passages before that!
John 3:14 ''And Moses lifted up the Serpant in the Wilderness,even so must THE SON OF MAN be lifted up.
John 3:15 ''That whoever beleives in Him should not perish but have eternal life''
*MOSES a pre-figuration of the Saviour,as is many passages from the Old Testament!*
John 3:14.....Moses LIFTED UP a bronze serpant to cure the Israelites from the deadly bites of poisoness snakes.
Christ will be LIFTED UP on the Cross.As the beleiver beholds the crucified Christ through faith as Saviour,the poisoness bite of that OLD
SERPANT,the devil,and the bite of sin and dath,is counteracted and cured.
The moment of Christ's greatest humiliation becomes the moment of exaltation for completing His redeeming work(SEE JOHN 19:30)
This is the first of the many instances where Jesus teaches that He is the fullfillment of an Old Testament.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only
begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation,
that light is come into the world,
and men loved darkness rather than light,
because their deeds were evil. ....
Can anyone simply interpret Scripture based on one's opinion?
***Coming upon the Ethiopian as he read the Old Testament in his chariot, Philip the Apostle asked him,
“Do you understand what you are reading?”
And the Ethiopian answered,
“How can I,
unless someone guides me?” (Acts 8:30, 31).
We are all in the position of the Ethiopian......And the same goes with Mans LAWS...one also must instruct us,for what the consequence would be for
breaking one LAW!
