Unbelief moves you into darkness; you don't see what's happening spiritually, and you can be deceived by others who are in the dark. Believing helps you understand and be in touch with what God is doing.
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)
"And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer [bear with] you? Bring thy son hither [here]." LK 9:41
Jesus has God the Father's approval to teach the principles, and tells us not to be afraid of God's presence. We are mistreated by some people that do not recognize that we belong to God and show the way to Him. Jesus does not like being around unbelief and perversion. The humble one asks for help and receives power to do the impossible through believing. (principles from MT17:1-21)
Hating good will keep you from believing in Jesus. They who love good and can see that Jesus is doing good as God does good, will be protected from destruction by Jesus, who is one with God the Father Almighty/Creator. They will bring God into their life when they believe in Jesus, who they see and assess as doing the good of God, including miracles showing He is one with the Father. Repent, turn from your own sinful (harmful) ways, turn to God, choose to do His will and you will be enabled to experience the reality of Jesus Christ and truly believe in him for salvation into a new life with God. (principles from JH10:22-42)
Serve, and do some of the lowly work. Jesus sends us to carry the gospel to people; if they accept us they accept Him and God. They will know we are His disciples by our love for each other. Do not be troubled. Trust in Jesus, and believe that He is coming back to take us to heaven. Jesus is the only true way to eternal life with God the Father. He is One with the Father, speaking and living the principles of God since they live in each other, as the miracles show. Believers will do what Jesus did and have His joy. Jesus loves and lives in them, and so does God the Father and the Holy Spirit. When Jesus and the Father see you continually applying their principles (one is to believe in them) and producing many lasting good results, they will give you whatever you ask for in Jesus' name, and Jesus will give you His peace as well. Whoever does not bear good results will be cut off from God and burned. Jesus knows you love Him by the way you apply the principles, which is summed up by loving each other as Jesus loves us. Doing much of this will bring glory to God, and He will reveal Himself to us. As you love, some who belong to the world and hate God may hate you for speaking about Jesus. Tell people about Jesus, even though some misjudge and hurt you. The Holy Spirit is here in the world convicting people of where they stand before God, and making the Father's principles known to us. Believing in Jesus brings God's love into your life, and through Him you can overcome this troublesome world. (principles from JH13:1-16:33) .................................... 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)
