Thread: What did Jesus command us to do?

    Default What did Jesus command us to do?

    In Matthew 28 it says..

    19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
    20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
    So here's the SIMPLE question.
    What did Jesus command us to observe?
    What are some of Jesus' commands?

    Please give a command followed by a Bible reference.
    Let's see if we can come up with an exhaustive list of things Jesus commanded.

    Please don't wax esoteric, and give us your latest deluded personal revelation.
    Just go to the Bible, find his commands, list them, along with the Bible reference.

    Matthew 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

    John 1:4
    In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.

    John 1:10
    He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.

    I was wondering how it wil feels to not have life in us......

    Matthew 8:12
    But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

    dark(därk)
    adj.dark·er, dark·est

    1. Absence of light.
    2. A place having little or no light.
    3. Night; nightfall: home before dark.
    4. A deep hue or color.

    Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

    Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

    Very good reminder...

    1 John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

    &

    Psalm 37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

    The carnal mind hates truth & judgement, and leans unto its own understanding. The mind of the spirit, loves truth and being decreased in the carnal, is to be increased in Christ.

    Jesus observed and participated in John's baptism.


    Matthew 3 13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. 14 But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”
    15 Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.
    16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

    Jesus preached repentance. HE could not observe repentance obviously as He was without sin but HE did preach it because none of us are without sin.

    Matthew 4 17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”

    7. If ye abide in me, and my words … in you—Mark the change from the inhabitation of Himself to that of His words, paving the way for the subsequent exhortations (Joh 15:9, 10).

    ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you—because this indwelling of His words in them would secure the harmony of their askings with the divine will.

    Karpas is one of the traditional rituals in the Passover Seder. It refers to the vegetable, usually parsley or celery, that is dipped in liquid (usually salt water) and eaten. Other customs are to use raw onion, or boiled potato. The word comes from the Greek 'karpos' meaning a fresh raw vegetable. The karpas is traditionally placed on the seder plate on the left side, below the roasted egg. The liquid may be any of the seven which make food capable of becoming ritually impure, although salt-water or wine vinegar are usually used. The idea behind the salt water is to symbolize the salty tears that the Jews shed in their slavery in Egypt.
    The general idea of dipping a vegetable into saltwater is to arouse the curiosity of the children, as per the theme of the Seder night that the story is to be recounted by way of question and answer. Such an action is not usually done, and thus arouses the curiosity of the children.[1]
    Some have explained the dipping of the Karpas to symbolize Joseph's tunic being dipped into blood by his brothers. Karpas is therefore done at the beginning of the seder, just as Joseph's tunic being dipped into blood began the Israelites' descent to Egypt. Indeed, the Greek word 'karpos' is very similar to the Hebrew word 'karpas' meaning fine linen.

    Matthew 11:15

    1John 3:22,23
    we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment.

    That's a summary from scripture of Jesus' commands.

    ​1 John 3 :16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren Whoso hath this worlds goods, and seeth his brother have need,and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, How dwelleth the love of God in him?

    Jesus said this
    John 14:15
    (15) If ye love me, keep my commandments.

    This comes from the 10 commandments.
    Exodus 20:6
    (6) And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
    Proverbs 6:23 KJV
    (23) For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

    When asked which is the greatest commandment, Jesus replied,

    "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." [Matt22:37-40]

    Jesus represented more than just the lamb of God; He has summed up all their traditions into one. He has to complete all the task in order to put it to an end.

    1 John 13-21

    Hereby know we that dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given of his Spirit.

    And we have seen and do testify (witness) that the FATHER sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

    Whosoever shall confess that Jesus/Yeshua is the Son od God, God dwelleth in him and he in God.

    And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love, dwelleth in God, and God in him.

    Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgement: because as he is, so are we in this world.

    There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear; because fear has torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

    We love him, because he first loved us.

    If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?

    And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
