00:16 Hi, welcome to His Words Are Life.
00:18 I'm Kelly Mowrer.
00:20 Around the world right now we're all gathering together to read
00:23 the Word of God.
00:25 Every one of us has things in our life that
00:26 we need answers for.
00:29 We have people we're praying for
00:31 we have situations where we don't know what to do.
00:34 The answer is here in the Bible.
00:35 The words of life are given to be health to us, to sustain us,
00:39 and to encourage us.
00:40 Before we begin to read and enjoy this wonderful gift
00:43 from God, let's go to Him in prayer.
00:46 Dear God, thank you so much that although we don't see you
00:51 we can see the words of the Son that you sent to us.
00:54 We ask that as we read these words that you will speak to our
00:58 hearts so we will have a very real sense of your presence,
01:01 and that we will come away from this time knowing that we have
01:04 been with you and were strengthened to face the day.
01:07 Thank you and we love you so much Father, amen.
01:12 I'm reading from the King James Version, the gospel of John
01:15 chapter eight and beginning with verse nineteen.
01:20 Then said they unto Him, Where is thy Father?
01:23 Jesus answered, You neither know me nor my Father:
01:26 if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
01:30 These words spake Jesus in the treasury as he taught
01:33 in the temple:
01:34 and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
01:39 Then said Jesus again unto them,
01:41 I go my way and ye shall seek me and shall die in your sins:
01:46 whither I go, ye cannot come.
01:49 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith,
01:53 Whither I go, ye cannot come.
01:55 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath;
01:59 I am from above: ye are of this world;
02:03 I am not of this world.
02:06 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins:
02:09 for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
02:15 Then said they unto him, who art thou?
02:18 And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto
02:22 you from the beginning, I have many things to say
02:25 and to judge of you, but he that sent me is true, and I
02:29 speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
02:33 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
02:38 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of Man
02:42 then shall ye know that I am he and that I do nothing of myself.
02:47 but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
02:51 And he that sent me is with me.
02:53 The Father hath not left me alone,
02:55 for I do always those things that pleases Him.
02:59 As he spake these words many believed on him.
03:04 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him,
03:07 If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed.
03:12 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
03:17 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed and were never
03:21 in bondage to any man: how sayest thou,
03:24 Ye shall be made free?
03:27 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily I say unto you,
03:30 Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
03:35 And the servant abideth not in the house forever
03:38 But the Son abideth ever.
03:42 If the Son therefore shall make you free ye shall be free indeed
03:46 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me,
03:50 because my word hath no place in you.
03:53 I speak that which I have seen with my Father,
03:57 and ye do that which ye have seen with your Father.
04:01 They answered and said unto him Abraham is our Father.
04:04 Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children,
04:08 ye would do the works of Abraham
04:09 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you
04:13 the truth which I have heard of God, this did not Abraham.
04:18 Ye do the deeds of your father.
04:20 Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication;
04:25 we have one Father, even God.
04:27 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father,
04:31 ye would love me:
04:32 for I proceeded forth and came from God;
04:35 neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
04:39 Why do you not understand my speech?
04:41 Even because ye cannot hear my word.
04:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father
04:48 ye will do.
04:49 He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not
04:53 in the truth, because there is no truth in him.
04:56 When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own:
04:59 for he is a liar, and the father of it.
05:02 And because I tell you the truth ye believe me not.
05:06 Which of you convinceth me of sin?
05:09 And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
05:13 He that is of God heareth God's words:
05:16 Ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
05:20 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, Say we not well
05:26 that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
05:28 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honor my Father,
05:33 and ye do dishonor me.
05:36 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and
05:41 Verily, verily, I say unto you,
05:43 If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
05:49 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou
05:52 hast a devil. Abraham is dead and the prophets
05:55 and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying,
05:57 he shall never taste of death.
05:58 Art thou greater than our father Abraham which is dead?
06:02 and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
06:07 Jesus answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing.
06:11 It is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say,
06:15 that he is your God: yet ye have not known him;
06:18 but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not,
06:22 I should be a liar like unto you but I know him,
06:26 and keep his saying.
06:29 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day:
06:32 and he saw it and was glad.
06:36 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old
06:40 and hast thou seen Abraham?
06:41 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
06:46 Before Abraham was, I am.
06:51 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself,
06:55 and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them,
06:58 and so passed by.
07:01 I'm reading from the King James version, the gospel of John.
07:04 We're beginning chapter nine.
07:07 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man
07:10 which was blind from his birth.
07:12 And his disciples asked him saying, Master, who did sin,
07:17 this man or his parents, that he was born blind?
07:20 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents
07:25 but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
07:29 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day:
07:33 the night cometh, when no man can work.
07:36 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
07:41 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay
07:45 of the spittle, and he annointed the eyes of the blind man
07:49 with the clay.
07:50 And said unto him, Go wash in the pool of Siloam,
07:53 which is by interpretation, Sent.
07:57 He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
08:02 The neighbors therefore, and they which before had seen him
08:06 that he was blind, said,
08:07 Is not this he that sat and begged?
08:12 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him:
08:17 but he said, I am he.
08:19 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
08:23 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay and
08:27 annointed mine eyes, and said unto me,
08:29 Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed,
08:32 and I received sight.
08:34 Then said they unto him, Where is he?
08:37 He said, I know not.
08:40 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
08:44 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay,
08:47 and opened his eyes.
08:49 And again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received
08:52 his sight.
08:53 He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes
08:56 and I washed and do see.
08:59 Therefore said some of the Pharisees,
09:00 This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day.
09:05 Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles
09:10 And there was a division among them.
09:13 They say unto the blind man again,
09:15 What sayest thou of him that he hath opened thine eyes?
09:19 He said, He is a prophet.
09:21 But the Jews did not believe concerning him,
09:24 that he had been blind, and received his sight.
09:26 until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
09:30 And they asked them saying,
09:31 Is this your son who you say was born blind?
09:33 How then doth he now see?
09:36 His parents answered them and said,
09:38 We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
09:43 But by what means he now seeth, we know not;
09:46 or who hath opened his eyes, we know not:
09:50 he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
09:55 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews:
09:59 for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that
10:03 he was Chirst, he should be put out of the synagogue.
10:06 Therefore said his parents, He is of age, ask him.
10:10 Then again called they the man that was blind and said unto him
10:15 Give God the praise, we know that this man is a sinner.
10:21 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not:
10:25 one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind,
10:30 now I see.
10:33 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee?
10:37 How opened he thine eyes?
10:39 He answered them, I have told you already,
10:41 and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again?
10:45 Will ye also be his disciples?
10:47 Then they reviled him and said, Thou art his disciple,
10:51 but we are Moses' disciples.
10:54 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow,
10:57 we know not from whence he is.
11:00 The man answered and said unto them,
11:02 Why herein is a marvellous thing that ye know not from whence
11:08 he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
11:11 Now we know that God heareth not sinners:
11:14 but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will,
11:17 him he heareth.
11:19 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened
11:23 the eyes of one that was born blind.
11:25 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
11:29 They answered and said unto him,
11:31 Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us?
11:36 And they cast him out.
11:39 Jesus heard that they had cast him out;
11:41 and when he had found him, he said unto him,
11:43 Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
11:47 He answered and said,
11:48 Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
11:51 Jesus said unto him,
11:53 Thou hast both seen him, and it is he
11:56 that talketh with thee.
11:58 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
12:02 And Jesus said, For judgement I am come into this world,
12:06 that they which see not might see;
12:10 and that they which see might be made blind.
12:15 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words,
12:18 and said unto him, Are we blind also?
12:21 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind,
12:23 ye should have no sin,
12:25 but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
12:31 I'm reading in the gospel of John, chapter ten.
12:35 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door
12:41 into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way,
12:43 the same is a thief and a robber.
12:47 But he that entereth in by the door is
12:48 the shepherd of the sheep.
12:50 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice;
12:53 and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
12:58 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them,
13:01 and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
13:05 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him:
13:09 for they know not the voice of strangers.
13:13 This parable spake Jesus unto them; but they understood not
13:16 what things they were which he spake unto them.
13:19 Then said Jesus unto them again,
13:21 Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
13:26 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers:
13:29 but the sheep did not hear them.
13:32 I am the door:
13:34 by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved,
13:37 and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
13:40 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and kill, and to destroy:
13:44 I am come that they might have life,
13:47 and that they might have it more abundantly.
13:50 I am the good shepherd: giveth his life for the sheep.
13:55 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd,
13:58 whose own the sheep are not,
13:59 seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth:
14:02 and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
14:05 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling,
14:07 and careth not for the sheep.
14:09 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
14:14 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father:
14:19 and I lay down my life for the sheep.
14:21 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold:
14:25 them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice;
14:29 and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
14:33 Therefore doth my Father love me because I lay down my life,
14:37 that I might take it again.
