Thoughts on the Gospel of John (61)

The Father … has given him (the Son) authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming, in which all who are in the graves will hear his voice and come forth – those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. I can of myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and my judgment is righteous, because I do not seek my own will but the will of the Father who sent me.
John 5: 26 – 30.

Thoughts on the Gospel of John (61)
The subject here is still the voice heard by the dead, but in a different situation from that in vv. 24 and 25.

Here it is the Son of man who calls the dead; previously it was the Son of God (although He is the same Person).

Here all the dead hear the voice; previously it was only those who are made alive.

Here the dead come forth from the graves; previously it was said that they pass into life.

Here the Son of man is given power to judge; previously it stated that He had life in Himself to make alive.

Here it is a matter of the future; previously the present was meant.

We note that here, once again, all who are physically dead come into question. All will rise again, but there will be two distinct resurrections: a resurrection for life and one for judgment. From other scriptures we know that the resurrection of life takes place about one thousand years before the resurrection of judgment. “Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection” (Revelation 20:6). Whoever is raised later, will be confronted with Christ as the just, unbribable Judge, a truly undesirable fate.

(to be continued next Sunday)

Today‘s reading: 2 Kings 6: 18 – 33 · John 19: 1 – 6

After seeing their plight, hearing their cries and feeling their pains, God came down to rescue the Israelites from Egypt. Our God is a mobile God. He comes down to deliver His own. As high as God is and even though He has His throne in Heaven, yet He condescends to meet the needs of His children on earth (Isaiah...More

Yesterday we discovered that our Lord Jesus Christ is the number one champion and that He makes His people champions. We also saw that a divine champion is a person raised up and supported by God.

One attribute of a champion is strength. The divine champion is one who receives divine strengthening. 1...More

Although it is an unpleasant experience to be a defeated contender, becoming an ex-champion is a much more grievous experience. When you are not yet a champion, only a few people pay attention to you. But by the time you become a champion, you will be on the radar of many people, including your enemies. A champion has...More
