*Truly, Truly, I Say to You

*It has Chinese version in the back. The enemies of truth deleted some 80 words of this article.

To emphasize the importance of the great truths that Jesus Christ proclaimed to the world, He often used the formula: Truly, truly, I say to you.

When Jesus says to the world, God says to the world. What Jesus says to the world, God says to the world.

1.  You will see the heavens opened.

Jhn 1:51,“And He (Christ) said to him: Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”

Note: Heavens opened when God became Man in Jesus Christ, so that the way to God is accessible through the Son of God. Jesus Christ is the way to God. Jesus Christ has opened the way to the heavens. Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.

2.   Unless one is born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.

Jhn 3:3,“Jesus answered and said to him: Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

Note: The Kingdom of God, not only can be known, it can also be seen. Only those who are born again can see the Kingdom of God. The eternal home of the Kingdom of God is Heaven. Heaven is a place, not just a state of mind.

See Rev 21:9-27, the New Jerusalem. Heaven is a place, not just a state of mind.

3.   Unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.

Jhn 3:5,“Jesus answered Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.”

Note: I believe the word “water” here does not refer to baptism. It must refer to the Word of God.

The proof is: Eph 5:26,“So that He (Christ) might sanctify her (the Church), by cleansing her with the washing of water by the Word.” Another Scripture would confirm the interpretation: 

Jhn 15:3,“You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you.” On the authority of Christ, 

Jhn 17:17,“Sanctify them in the truth; Your Word is truth.” 

The Word of God not only has cleansing power, it can also sanctify our hearts and minds.

4.   The Son can do nothing of Him, unless it is something He sees the Father doing.

Jhn 5:19,“Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them: Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.”

Note: Jesus Christ reveals God. To know Christ is to know God. The relationship between the Father and Son is too wonderful for a human mind to understand.

5.   He who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life.

Jhn 5:24, “Truly, truly, I say to you: he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.”

NoteYou listen to the Word of Christ who proclaims Himself to be the Savior of the world. If you repent of your sins and believe in Jesus Christ who was sent by God to save mankind and accept Him as your personal Lord and Savior, take the word of Christ, you have eternal life and will not come into judgment, but have passed out of death into life - out of spiritual death into spiritual life, and finally eternal life.

6.   The hour is coming and now it is.

Jhn 5:25,“Truly, truly, I say to you: the hour is coming and now it is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.”

Note: Those who are dead in sins hear the Word of Christ and believe will have eternal life. The time is now for you to repent of your sins and believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Today is the day of salvation. This is the last hour, the Kingdom of God is at hand. Those who seek money, power and sex do not know the hour is short. The end of the world is near.

7.   You seek Me because you ate of the loaves and were filled.

Jhn 6:26,“Jesus answered them and said Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.”

Note: Some people believe because they seek material blessings. Some people preach because they merchandise the Gospel to enrich themselves. Preachers of prosperity gospel love money and the world and they preach a false gospel of material and earthly blessings. Most ludicrous is the fact there are people who want to get rich quick and so they join the church.

The followers of the prosperity gospel become church members to seek monetary and material blessings. The fact that the center of prosperity gospel the Crystal Cathedral went bankrupt proves the prosperity gospel is false and fails and discredits the teachings of its founder Robert Shuller. Christians are told to seek things above, not money, power and sex as most Americans do and now most peoples of the world do including the Chinese infected by American corrupt cupture and greedy capitalism.

8.   It is not Moses who has given you the bread of out heaven.

Jhn 6:32,“Jesus then said to them: Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven.”

Note: Moses was only a man and a servant of God. Any Jew who would think that Moses gave their ancestors the bread of heaven must be a fool indeed. It is God who gave the Bread of Life (Jesus Christ) to those who believe in His Son. Mosaic law cannot save anyone. You are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. There is no other savior of the world.

9.   He who believes has eternal life

Jhn 6:47,“Truly, truly, I say to you: he who believes has eternal life.”

Note: What you must do is to repent of your sins and believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. You are saved by grace and faith in Jesus Christ. It is not your merit or good deed. No good deeds can save anyone. No one is good enough to go to heaven. Eternal life is a gift of God.

Eph 2:8-9,“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” 

All man-made religions that teach you are saved by your good deeds are false.

10.   Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood.

Jhn 6:53,“So Jesus said to them: Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves.”

Note: No man has life in himself, only God does. Unless we accept Christ as our Savior who died on the cross for our sins, we will perish. Here the words “eat”, “flesh” and “blood” are used figuratively just as Jesus Christ said He is the “door.” The bread symbolizes the body of Christ, and the wine symbolizes the blood of Christ. The Roman Catholic Church’s doctrine of transubstantiation is not supported by the Scriptures. In the Lord’s Supper, the bread symbolizes the body of Christ and the wine symbolizes the blood of Christ. We do this in remembrance of the Lord’s death for our sins.

11.   Everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.

Jhn 8:34,“Jesus answered them Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.”

Note: Every human being is a slave of sin, there is no exception. The slave of sin cannot save himself, he needs the Savior. Jesus Christ is the Savior. Corrupt politicians, greedy capitalists and immoral men and women think they are superior because they have power, money and sex; not realizing they are actually slaves of sin. Watch and observe what Washington, Wall Street and Hollywood say or do, they the slaves of sin.

12.   If anyone keeps My word, he will never see death.

Jhn 8:51,“Truly, truly, I say to you: if anyone keeps My word he will never see death.”

Note: The death refers to the eternal death in Hell.

13.   Before Abraham was born, I AM.

Jhn 8:58,“Jesus said to them Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I AM.”

Note: According to the flesh, Jesus Christ was the seed of Abraham. How could Abraham be the father of Christ when before Abraham was born, Christ was. Abraham saw the Pre-Incarnate Christ. See Gen Chapter 12. Jesus Christ was the Lord of the Old Testament. When God became Man in Jesus Christ, He was both God and Man. The true humanity and full divinity were one in Christ Jesus. The Jehovah of the Old Testament is the Jesus of the New Testament.

14.   He who does not enter by the door … he is a thief and a robber.

Jhn 10:1,“Truly, truly, I say to you: he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.”

Note: Jesus Christ is the way to God and the door through which all believers must enter. Those who teach some other ways to God are thieves and robbers. Jesus is the Door, there is no other door to God and salvation. There are many false prophets and false preachers and false teachers who are thieves and robbers. They do not make people disciples of Jesus Christ. They make their church members their own disciples. They exploit and defraud people. They look at their church members as profits centers.

15.   I am the door of the sheep.

Jhn 10:7,“So Jesus said to them again Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.”

Note: Of course this is a figure of speech. Christ is the door of the sheep means Christ is the Way for believers to go to God and to heaven.

16.   Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone.

Jhn 12:24,“Truly, truly, I say to you: unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.”

Note: Unless a man takes up his cross, he cannot follow Christ. If a man denies himself and obeys the Lord, he will bear much fruit. He who wants to gain will lose; and he who loses for the sake of Christ will gain.

17.   A slave is not greater than his master.

Jhn 13:16,“Truly, truly, I say to you: a slave is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him.”

Note: The servants of Christ must remember their places. Christ must increase and we must decrease. Those who make others disciples of themselves are not disciples of Christ. No true servant of Christ will brag about their work through mass media such as TV, radio, film, and crusade, etc. by saying he has preached to more people than Paul or than our Lord. A good servant of Christ would not seek the honor to be named the Man of the Century. Something is very wrong with any preacher who is seeking his own glory.

18.   He who receives whomever I send receives Me.

Jhn 13:20,“Truly, truly, I say to you he who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.”

Note: There exists the divine order: He who receives the one Christ sends receives Christ. He who receives Christ receives God who sent Christ.

19.   One of you will betray Me.

Jhn 13:21,“When Jesus had said this, He became troubled in spirit, and testified and said: Truly, truly, I say to you, that one of you will betray Me.”

Note: Judas Iscariot was the one who betrayed the Lord. Preachers who are greedy for money betray the Lord. Theologians who deny the Divinity of Jesus betray the Lord. Betrayal is the worst and lowliest thing a man can do. Those in Taiwan used by American leaders betray China.

20.   A rooster will not crow until you deny Me three times.

Jhn 13:38,“Jesus answered, Will you lay down your life for Me? Truly, truly, I say to you: a rooster will not crow until you deny Me three times.”

Note: Peter denied the Lord three times out of fear, but he repented and became a great apostle. Sinful man is capable of denying the Lord and denying the truth. Evil Japanese leaders are no better than dogs and pigs who deny their war crimes, genocide and atrocities.

21.   He who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also.

Jhn 14:12,“Truly, truly, I say to you: he who believes in Me (Christ), the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.”

Note: No disciple ever did anything qualitatively greater than what Christ did, but the apostles won 3,000 souls in one day when the Holy Spirit was given at the Pentecost.

22.   You will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice.

Jhn 16:20,“Truly, truly, I say to you, that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will grieve, but your grief will be turned into joy.”

Note: When our grief turns into joy, it is better than water turned into wine. The people of Washington, Wall Street and Hollywood represent the people who seek power, money and sex. They have succeeded and they rejoice now, but the time is coming and they will weep and wail in Hell for eternity.

23.   If you ask the Father for anything in My name.

Jhn 16:23,“In that day you will not question Me (Christ) about anything. Truly, truly, I say to you: if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you.”

Note: God answers prayers. God answers prayers of His children in the name of Christ. One of the joys of Christians is the blessing and answered prayers. God answers my prayers a million times, big things and small things.

24.   You will stretch out your hands and someone else will gird you.

Jhn 21:18,“Truly, truly, I say to you: when you were younger, you used to gird yourself and walk wherever you wished; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will lead you, and bring you where you do not wish to go.”

Note: When you grow old, a series of bad things would happen to you, in particular sorrow and sickness. But for the children of God, the Lord will lead you even to your final moment.

Some culture believes making jokes is smart and fashionable. Jesus Christ never made a joking statement. Christ always said the truth. When Christ said: Truly, truly, I say to you – that is even more serious and solemn, but it is plain and clear without any gray area and cannot be misunderstood. We have better take the Word of Christ seriously. Whatever Jesus says is true and true. Heaven will pass away, the words of Jesus will never pass away.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


我实实在在地告诉你们

要强调耶稣基督向全世界宣告伟大真理的重要性,他经常使用这个公式: 们。这意味着 真的,真的,我告诉你们。


1你们将要看见天开了。

约翰福音1:51,“他(基督)又 说: 我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们, 你 们 将 要 看 见 天 开 了, 神 的 使 者 上 去 下 来 在 人 子 身 上。”

注解:天开了,神在耶稣基督里成为人,到神的方法是通过神的儿子。耶稣基督是到神的道路。耶稣基督开辟了通天的道路。

2
。人若不重生,就不能见神的国。

约翰福音3:3,“ 说, 你,人 生, 国。
:神的国,不仅可以知道,还可以看到。
启示录21:9-27,新耶路撒冷。天堂是一个地方,不只是一种心理状态。


3人若不是从水和圣灵生的,就不能进神的国
约翰福音3:5,“ 说, 你, 的, 国。
:我相信这个词“水”并不是指的洗礼。它必须提及神的话。证据是:

以弗所书5:26, 道, 净, 洁。”另外圣经将确认这个解释:约翰福音15:3,“ 现 在 你 们 因 我 讲 给 你 们 的 道, 已 经 干 净 了。由于基督的权柄约翰福音17:17,“求 你 用 真 理 使 他 们 成 圣 。 你 的 道 就 是 真 理 。神的话不仅具有清洗能力,它也可以使我们的心灵成圣。

4
父所作的事,子也照样作。

约翰福音5:19,“耶 稣 对 他 们 说 , 我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们 , 子 凭 着 自 己 不 能 作 什 么 , 惟 有 看 见 父 所 作 的 , 子 才 能 作 。 父 所 作 的 事 , 子 也 照 样 作 。
:耶稣基督显示了神。认识基督就是认识神。圣父和圣子之间的关系是太奇妙了, 人类心中不能明白。

5
那听我话,又信差我来者的,就有永生。


约翰福音5:24,“我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们, 那 听 我 话, 又 信 差 我 来 者 的, 就 有 永 生, 不 至 于 定 罪, 是 已 经 出 死 入 生 了 。

:你听基督的话,宣称自己是世界的救主。如果你悔改你的罪,相信耶稣基督是神派来拯救人类,并接受他作您个人的救主,基督的话,你有永恒的生命。 了,也不 至 于 定 罪 - 走出死亡到生命,终于永生。

6
时候将到,现在就是了。


约翰福音5:25,“我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们, 时 候 将 到, 现 在 就 是 了, 死 人 要 听 见 神 儿 子 的 声 音。 听 见 的 人 就 要 活 了。
:那死在罪里的人听见基督的话,相信就会得到永生。

7
你们找我,乃是因吃饼得饱。

约翰福音6:26,“  说, 们, 我, 迹, 饱。
:有些人相信,因为他们谋求物质的祝福。有些人鼓吹福音,因为他们的商品,以丰富自己。

8
那从天上来的粮,不是摩西赐给你们的。


约翰福音6:32,“耶 稣 说, 我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们, 那 从 天 上 来 的 粮, 不 是 摩 西 赐 给 你 们 的, 乃 是 我 父 将 天 上 来 的 真 粮 赐 给 你 们。
:摩西只是一个人,一个神的仆人。任何犹太人认为摩西给了他们祖先天上来的粮,必须确实是一个傻瓜。这是生命的粮(耶稣基督),

9
信的人有永生。


约翰福音6:47,“我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们, 信 的 人 有 永 生。

你必须做的,是悔改你的罪,并相信耶稣基督为你的主和救主。你得救本乎恩, 也因着信耶稣基督。这不是你的功德。没有良好的行为可以救任何人。没有人够好能去天堂。永恒的生命是神的恩赐。

以弗所书2:8-9, “你 们 得 救 是 本 乎 恩, 也 因 着 信, 这 并 不 是 出 于 自 己, 乃 是 神 所 赐 的。 也 不 是 出 于 行 为, 免 得 有 人 自 夸。一切人为的宗教教,教你可以通过良好的行为得救是假的。

10
你们若不吃人子的肉,不喝人子的血,就没有生命。


约翰福音6:53,“ 说, 们, 肉, 血, 面。
:没有人在自己有生命,只有有生命。除非我们接受基督为我们的救主,为我们的罪死在十字架,我们会灭亡。上面的这些话“吃”,“肉”和“血”被用来比喻正如耶稣基督说他是“门。” 罗马天主教会的变体学说没有圣经的支持。在主的晚餐,象征着基督的身体,葡萄酒象征着基督的血。我们应当如此 行,为的是记念主为我们的罪死。

11
所有犯罪的就是罪的奴仆。

约翰福音8:34,“  说, 们:所 的, 仆。
:每个人是一个罪恶的奴隶,没有例外。罪恶的奴隶不能救自己,他需要救主。耶稣基督是救主。

12
。人若遵守我的道,就永远不见死。

约翰福音8:51,“ 们, 道, 死。

13
没有亚伯拉罕,就有了我

约翰福音8:58,“  说, 们, 罕, 我。
按肉体说,耶稣基督是亚伯拉罕的后裔。亚伯拉罕怎么能成为基督的父亲,亚伯拉罕出生之前,就有了基督。亚伯拉罕见过肉身前的基督。见创世纪12。耶稣基督是旧约的耶和华。当神在耶稣基督里成为人,他是神和人。真正的人性和神性是在基督耶稣里完全。

14
不从门进去...那人就贼,就是强盗。

约翰福音10:1,“ 我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们, 人 进 羊 圈, 不 从 门 进 去, 倒 从 别 处 爬 进 去, 那 人 就 是 贼, 就 是 强 盗。
:耶稣基督是神的道路,门,使所有信徒必须进入。那些教神其他道路方法的都是贼,都是强盗。

15
。我
是羊的门。

约翰福音10:7,“  说, 们, 门,
羊的门当然是一种比喻。 基督是羊的门是指基督是信徒要走神和天堂的路,必的门。

16
。除非一粒麦子落在地里死了,仍只是一粒。

约翰福音12:24,“ 了, 粒。 了,
:只有当一个人背起他的十字架来,他不能跟随基督。如果一个人否认自己和服从主,他将承受多大的成果。

17
。仆人不能大于主人。

约翰福音13:16,“我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们, 仆 人 不 能 大 于 主 人。 差 人 也 不 能 大 于 差 他 的 人。
:基督的仆人必须记住他们的地方。基督必兴旺,我们必衰微。那些使人作自己门徒的不是基督的门徒。 没有真正基督的仆人,会通过大众媒体诸如电视,广播,电影,布道会等等,吹嘘自说他传福音给更多的人超过保罗或我们的主。一个基督的仆人不寻求荣幸地被命名为世纪人。道者寻求自己的荣耀是错误的。

18
有人接待我所差遣的,就是接待我。

约翰福音13:20,“ 我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们, 有 人 接 待 我 所 差 遣 的, 就 是 接 待 我。 接 待 我 , 就 是 接 待 那 差 遣 我 的 。
:有神圣的照例:谁接基督所差遣的是接待耶稣。谁接基督就是接待差遣基督的神。

19
。你
们中间有一个人要卖我了。

约翰福音13:21,“ 话, 愁, 说:我 们, 了。
:加略人犹大是一个背叛了神卖耶稣的

20
鸡叫以先,你三次不认我。

约翰福音13:38,“耶 稣 说, 你 愿 意 为 我 舍 命 吗? 我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你, 鸡 叫 以 先, 你 要 三 次 不 认 我。
:彼得否认了主三次,但他悔改,并成为一个伟大的使徒。

21
我所作的事,信我的人也要作。


约翰福音14:12,“ 我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们, 我 所 作 的 事, 信 我 的 人 也 要 作。 并 且 要 作 比 这 更 大 的 事。 因 为 我 往 父 那 里 去。
:没有什么门徒曾做过什么比基督更大的事;但当神给予圣灵,使徒们一天五旬节赢得了3000个灵魂。

22
。你们将要痛哭,哀号,
世人倒要喜乐。

约翰福音16:20,“ 们, 哭, 号, 乐。 愁, 愁,
:当我们的忧愁为喜乐,它比水变的酒好。

23
你们若向父求什么,他必因我的名,赐给你们。

约翰福音16:23,“到 那 日, 你 们 什 么 也 就 不 问 我 了。 我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们, 你 们 若 向 父 求 什 么, 他 必 因 我 的 名, 赐 给 你 们。

24。你要伸出手,别人要把你束上。

约翰福音21:18,“我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你, 你 年 少 的 时 候, 自 己 束 上 带 子, 随 意 往 来, 但 年 老 的 时 候, 你 要 伸 出 手 来, 别 人 要 把 你 束 上, 带 你 到 不 愿 意 去 的 地 方。

:有些文化认为开玩笑也很聪明和时尚。耶稣从来没有开玩笑的发言。基督总是说真理。当基督说,我 实 实 在 在 地 告 诉 你 们,- 这是更严重的,庄严的,但它是清楚和明白,没有任何灰色地带,不能被误解。我们最好认真对待基督的话。
