Jesus has Authority
Closest related principles - Core Interrelations taken from interrelations below.
Jesus has authority over all of us; we need the Father and Son to bring us into eternal life, which is knowing Him. We will glorify Him by doing all the work He has given us to do. Jesus and the Father are one; the Father will protect us to keep His people one with each other. The Father and the Son will be in us, and us in them. Jesus is giving us all His joy. Even though the world hates us, God will protect us from the evil one. And through Jesus, we can overcome our own harmful desires. The world will know Jesus came from God and that God loves us when they see we believers are in God, and when they see the way believers love each other and the complete unity God brings about in us, which is a glorious thing. And these are things we pray about; that God will protect us from evil, make us one with each other, and set us apart by the truth of His word. Our believing in Jesus will bring us into heaven. God loves us and lives with us. (principles from JH17:1-17:26)
Jesus has authority to teach the words of God to us because He came from Him. Believing and accepting Jesus brings eternal life, rejecting Him brings death. This life consists of being filled with the Holy Spirit, who satisfies our cravings. Then we truly will worship God. Right now in this world we must do the work of God until it is finished, and it is difficult to do His work in this world. (principles from JH3:22-4:42)
Believing in Jesus saves because He has the authority to forgive sins. He can make us clean, and it doesn't take Him long to do it. (principles from MK1:39-2:12)
God the Father and Jesus his Son continue working. They are together and show the principles by what they do. Jesus gives life to whom he is pleased to give it, and He has been given authority to judge whether we believe His word and do good (whether we really love the Lord more than our selfish ways), because as a man he knows us. Those who do these things have eternal life, those who don't will be condemned. Jesus seeks to please God the Father, and judges according to His principles. Jesus' work shows He came from the Father. Believing in Jesus brings God and his word into you, so don't refuse him and side with others. Refusing to put effort into following his teachings keeps people from believing. Believe and live! (principles from JH5:16-5:47)
Jesus conquered death and has authority over all life; therefore carry the gospel, baptize people, and teach them to apply God's will, the principles. (principles from MT28:1-20)
Being forceful and sensitive helps you see God's call unmistakably and take the right actions, proving your alignment with God. God disconnects from people who refuse the authority of Jesus after God makes Jesus real to them; this Jesus who came from Him. Those who accept Jesus find rest for their souls. Understanding how important it is to God that we show people mercy helps us clearly distinguish right from wrong. (principles from MT11:7-12:8)
Jesus has eternal authority and power. (principles from LK1:26-38)
