The Gospels – The Gospel According to John
There is no standstill in Creation
John 5:16-18 And therefore the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath. (17) But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. (18) Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
There is no standstill in Creation. Just like it is unnatural to set apart one day in which we all decide to do good which we call the Sabbath. We must uphold the Laws of God and worship Him every minute of the day through our activities. But of course this principle was not understood by the Pharisees at that time and even today not still understood. They would have the Son of God adhere to their earthly mundane laws that they had devised with their brains.
John 5:19-21 Jesus said to them, Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
Continuing from the verses previously, the Pharisees were angry that Jesus equated Himself with God. He tried to explain to them that God is in Him as He worked. The mystery of this union has not been understood until now but through the explanation given in the book “In the Light of Truth”, the Grail Message by Abd-ru-shin we have the explanation. With the incarnation of Jesus, God severed a small Part of Himself Which Part nevertheless remained connected with Him. It is this connection with God that made it possible for God to work through Jesus. The nature of this Divine Mystery which was the focus of many ecumenical councils was not resolved until now.
