No.. 843: Should Jan-Aage Torp quit as pastor?

No. 843:
Should Jan-Aage Torp quit as pastor?

Levi Fragell has some views that are well bite mark in.

For my part I am primarily skeptical PASTOR Torp from my views on remarriage and pastorembedet - it cited in relation to Torp jr. is an underlying point.

Espen Ottesen is skeptical more to Torp that he fails to conformed his own house that scripture speaks of. Then he worse than a heathen scripture says.

1 Tim. 5. 8 But if any provide not for his own, and most of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an infidel.

Espen Ottesen posts here:

I have expressed on twitter that I think it is regrettable that Jan-Aage Torp not stop as pastor. The reason is not only the story that his son stands out in today's edition of A Magazine. My reason is more holistic. Here are some words.

Jan-Aage Torp is pastor. Also expression apostle employed about his service. Either way, it is natural to focus on what Paul should require of an overseer. Here are some key verses from 1 Tim 3.2 to 7:

"Now the overseer must be above reproach, husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not combative or covetous. He must manage his own house well, having his children with all chastity. Whoever does not know how to rule his own house, how can he take care of God's church? He must not be a recent convert, or he will not be inflated and fall under condemnation of the devil. He must also have good testimony from those who are outside, lest he be ashamed of being caught in the devil's snare. "

These words presents great ideals. Let me therefore first clarify that I (obviously) do not mean that a Christian leader should be perfect. We are all sinners. The Bible says thankfully much that God can also use weak and erring people. Moreover, I believe that the words of Paul represents a measure of relevance and importance. We have no right to cancel the meaning of these words because no one is infallible. A Christian leader depends on trust. Therefore there must be a connection between life and teachings.

Regarding Jan-Aage Torp, I believe that he himself has weakened his confidence in a fundamental way, especially in recent years. I think it is unpleasant to argue. But I think actually it's even harder to be completely silent - for through his behavior he discredited the whole Christian church in Norway.

The latest example comes the story that her son now says. It is simply appalling, although I take into account that the media does not give a very balanced presentation, though Torp has been unable to provide an equivalent. Many Christian leaders have experienced that their children have gone away from the faith. Some will suggest that in itself disqualifies a pastor. I do not think so. Also pastor children must have the opportunity to choose their own faith. But the story of Anders Torp is very special, also because his son today has broken off all contact with his father. It weakens obviously confidence Torp.

Even more serious is this page Torp today admits that the theology he made sure that his son was greeted with was unhealthy. To a certain extent it is good that Torp self-criticism. The problem is that there are limits to how many times a person can regret greatly their miscalculations - and still retain confidence. Torp prophesied bloodbath during the Olympics in Athens, which he later regretted. In today's articles sorry he both contact with the Danish "Father's house" and with "åndeutdrivere" from Zambia. It is then good reason to ask whether Torp has shown sufficient spiritual judgment. I do not think so. In addition, I think a lot of the drug found on the websites of Oslokirken and blog Jan-Aage Torp shows that Torp still markets a extremist charismatic. It is very problematic.

A final issue is that Jan-Aage Torp is remarried. This is a difficult point to comment - it relates to privacy Torp. Moreover, I believe it is unreasonable to think that all topics concerning marital status shall be stamped as irrelevant. Paul emphasizes after all such questions in 1 Timothy.

It is probably well known that my basic attitude is that remarriage is wrong. This justifies I with Matt 19.3-10 and some other Bible verses. Meanwhile, I think the question is difficult. Many conservative Christians believe remarriage in some situations may be right. I respect that. But I do think that certain Christian leaders should refrain from remarriage - partly because Paul writes that a leader must be "one woman man."

Finally the text of 1 Timothy 3, Paul writes that a bishop "have good testimony from those who are outside." It must of course not be construed as a Christian leader must be popular and loved. On the contrary, it says a lot in the Bible that whoever preaches the word of God true and straight, must be prepared both resistance, persecution and slander. Also believes Paul therefore that it matters how Christian leaders are perceived by people outside the church. Also at this point I mean Torp fall short. He does not give a good testimony by marrying quite quickly after the divorce with a woman who is more than twenty years younger than himself.

This is a difficult topic. I find it hard to be balanced, accurate and respectful (to Jan-Aage Torp, which undoubtedly is in a very difficult situation and deserves care and intercession). But here was a brief explanation that I mean after all Pastor Torp should quit as pastor.
It is of course impossible to say something general about the age difference. My contention is that Jan-Aage Torp new marriage damage his confidence. I do not mean in general terms that it is reprehensible that a man marries a younger woman; here ranges circumstances much. But a Christian leader should take a particular responsibility to avoid being "reproach", to quote Paul. I do not think Torp made a sufficient effort to avoid this. It should for instance be emphasized that his new wife is the same age as his eldest child.
(end of quote).

Brave words by Espen Ottosen, but where are your colleagues in the other organization;?
The well-known Christian leader Espen Ottosen commenting today (15.04.11) on Twitter media press about Pastor Jan-Aage Torp son Anders, which in my book and in the press have talked about incredible offense in his father's church. "It is regrettable that Torp not stop as pastor," writes Espen Ottosen.
Jan-Aage Torp denotes the Oslokirken's website his son's report as a "Crimean and scifi article" and call the independent young man a "mouthpiece for Levi Fragell". Other terms of the son's "lackey."
I had never heard about Anders Torp when he some years ago broke with his father's church and criticized the church in VG. The young lad knew not who I was. I was ignorant that he later joined the NHA, and I met him before he appeared on Our Lands debate about children and religion in autumn 2010, after the first edition of my book was already released. At this time Anderstorps humanist approach solidly established. The same applies to his plans for a "rescue mission" for abused children in charismatic communities.
It later came forward, in that we now are two pastors sons who independently come to the same path, strengthens the case we both priority and I am obviously pleased that a younger and more powerful voice can reach further out than a 72-year-old's rusty and eventually monotone voice. But we must be more to reach our goal: a church where children ravished in Jesus' name. Thanks to Espen Ottoson, but where are the other Christian leaders? It is not morally acceptable to whisper us sympathetic word in your ear, then setting up on the same platform as Norwegian and American prophets, preachers and miracle exorcists - and subsequently report on the kingdom of God glorious global progress. When new charismatic wild shot Catch the fire in Oslo invites Toronto prophet John Arnott and young and older is wriggling on the floor under "the power of God," when Reinhard Bonnke, Benny Hinn, Daniel Kolenda and Ulf Ekman come to Norway, the charismatics like TV -pastor Egil Svartdahl and Oase leaders answer culprit. There is reason to believe that most preachers drew a sigh of relief when Jan-Aage Torp pulled out of the organized Pentecostal community, thereby marginalized themselves. But the time Anders describes applies mostly the year his father an ordinary Pentecostal pastor. His colleagues did not react then - and they still do not in public.
It took a misjonssambander to Espen Ottosen. Yes, Jan-Aage Torp should quit as pastor.

Final Comment:
Pastor Jan Aage Torp is the Bible's description no Pastor, but a false Apostle! . Yes, Jan-Aage Torp should quit as pastor.

No. 841: How ice melted here Nord, when God heard the Prophet praying for 2700 years ago!

No. 841:
How ice melted here Nord, when God heard the Prophet praying for 2700 years ago!

I have a good brother down in Southern has very many strong and clear views on many things. Something I'm very disagree, but mostly I agree. Here comes the head of brotherly Anders Helge cleanup
Image of Earth before and after Hezekiah's prayer. We can clearly see that it was milder. God makes it natural supernatural. And it supernaturally natural.

Large parts of Europe were uninhabited wilderness at the time in the year 720 b. Kr. Cold and inhospitable climate may have been one of the reasons why this part of the world was not particularly alluring for emigrants from the east. It was just gone a little over a thousand years ago Flood and "Ice Age" was still noticeable. The Greek historian Herodotus (484-ca. 425 BC) tells example. that areas north of Scythia, ie west Siberia, was uninhabitable because of extreme cold.

Romans considered year 753 BC as the basis for its calendar. This was the year when Rome claimed. Tradition was founded by Romulus and Remus. Before this time there was probably little or no population in Northern Europe because of glaciers and cold, inhospitable climate.

In 700s BC happened however climate change on Earth that led to Europe was warmer. Glaciers, which had branches down on the continent disappeared gradually, and the foundation was laid for a population of the continent. Meanwhile, the Middle East ("The fertile crescent of the new moon") drier, warmer and unproductive.

Hezekiah (Hezekiah)

In 2 Kings ch. 20 we find this strange and momentous story, which few people have thought deeply about. Hezekiah king of Judah (Hezekiah) had been terminally ill. He prayed to the Lord, who answered him and let fifteen years to his life. Hezekiah asked for a sign, and God gave him the sign he wanted:

Nebuchadnezzar world metropolis Babylon even in a fertile area "And Hezekiah said to Isaiah, What shall be the sign that the Lord will heal me, so I can go up into the house of tomorrow? Isaiah answered, This Lord gives you signs that the Lord will keep what he has promised: Shall the shadow go forward ten steps, or shall it go back ten steps? Hezekiah said, It is a light thing for the shadow to extend ten steps ahead. No, let the shadow go back ten steps back! Cried the prophet Isaiah to the Lord, and he brought the shadow back the steps it had gone down on Ahaz staircase - ten steps "(2 Kings 20.8 to 11).

This happened about year 732 BC Interest astronomically it is not possible to explain this incident other than that the earth's axis changed - inclination angle relative to the plane of its orbit was changed.

Obviously, God do things that seemingly conflicts with the laws of nature, but I do not think God operates that way. God could naturally let earth axis remain unchanged, let the sun in the same place in the sky (relatively naturally, as it is waterwheels which creates the illusion that the sun moves across the sky from east to west) nor move the shade, which would be contrary with all of physics and the laws of nature. It would then be only an illusion that was outside of reality world. I do not think God chose to do something. Instead, he chose a solution that was a sign to Hezekiah the king, while it was of permanent duration and served several purposes. God's hand was behind all this. He wanted to lay the foundation for the fulfillment of his promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He wanted to populate one then uninhabited part of the world with the descendants of Jacob. They should become a multitude of kingdoms, and from them were all people of the earth be blessed. A change of earth's axis would create a climate change on Earth and pave the way for the migrations westward.

OUTER catastrophic INFLUENCE

There are many historical narratives that tell about an unusual celestial phenomenon in the 8th century BC The Babylonians, who were brilliant astronomers, sent to King Hezekiah to ask about the strange characters that had happened:

Today is the ancient metropolis Babylon under warm and dry ørkensandene when the messengers came from Babylon princes, who sent unto him to inquire of the wonder that was done in the country, God left him to test him and to know what was in his heart "(2 Chron 32.31).

The Chinese "bamboo books" recalls eg. that "the stars fell like rain, and the earth trembled." Also Hindus, Mayans, Egyptians and several other noted an unusual celestial phenomenon in the 8th century BC Ancient texts can tell this. It is highly unfair to discard all these old stories that just superstition and legend. It is quite obvious that something unusual celestial phenomenon happened at the time, and this was recorded by contemporary sages. It is said also about a powerful earthquake in Assyria around 750 BC

In his remarkable book Worlds in Collision from 1950, says Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky that the orbits of some of the solar system planets, for example. Venus and mars has changed several times during Earth's history, the last time in the 8th century BC Dr. Velikovsky believes that the earth's axis due to a catastrophic, external influence, perhaps a close passage of Mars or Venus, changed abruptly at this time. Soil axis moved away from Europe / North America, with the result that the Arctic Circle moved into more temperate zones.


The change of the earth's axis led to areas that had previously lain in cold areas got warmer climate. These include large parts of northern Europe and North America. "Ice Age" was brought to an end, and the ice cap over Northern Europe / North America began to melt, a process that happened over the centuries.

Also science agrees that a climate change on Earth brought "Ice Age" terminated, although the basis of his evolutionist worldview operates with quite different eras - tens of thousands of years - than the Bible chronology gives room for.

Before climate change began in the 8th century BC was the Middle East very fertile. It was known as "the fertile crescent of the new moon," with countries that "flowing with milk and honey." There were large cedar forests and fertile soil. Cool winds from the European continent in the north brought moist air and rain to these areas. Also North Africa and the Sahara, which today is as fortørkete areas and deserts, had fertile vegetation and large lakes once in the past. "Cave Paintings" on cliffs middle of the Sahara shows pictures of hippos, waders, people, horses and cattle, ie life forms that require plenty of water.

Final Comment:
There has been a sub in the same way before. It was during the Prophet Joshua. We read this here at the end:
Joshua 10 8 And the Lord said to Joshua, Fear them not! I have given them into your hands; Not one of them will stand before thee. 9 So Joshua came upon them suddenly; went up from Gilgal all night. 10 And the Lord struck them before Israel, and Joshua smote them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way going up to Beth Horon and cut them down as far as Azekah and Makkedah. 11 As they fled from before Israel and were on the descent of Beth Horon, and the LORD brought great stones falling down from heaven upon them until Azekah, and they died; it killed several with hailstones than the children of Israel slew with the sword. 12 Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites children of Israel, and he said so all Israel: Stand still, sunny, Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon 13 And the sun stood still and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is it not written in the book upright ones - the sun stood still in the middle of the sky and delayed almost a full day before it went down. / 14 And there was no day like that before or since, when the Lord heard voice of a man; for the LORD fought for Israel.

This happened about 1400 b. kr. See especially verse 12 Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites children of Israel, and he said so all Israel: Stand still, sunny, Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon 13 And the sun stood still and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is it not written in the book upright ones - the sun stood still in the middle of the sky and delayed almost a full day before it went down.

We talk about that God intervenes in history, and this is going to also happen during the 1000 year kingdom when climate also will change for the better ?! Then one including Israel experience the following: Amos. 9. 13 See, the days are coming, says the Lord,
           the plowman, overtakes the reaper
           and the treader of grapes, overtakes the sower.
           Grape juice will drip from the mountains
           and flow from all heights.
     14 Then I will turn the fate of my people Israel.
           They will rebuild ruined cities and live in them.
           They shall plant vineyards and drink wine.
           They shall make gardens and eat their fruit.
     15 I plant them in their own land,
           and they shall never more be plucked up
           of the earth I have given them,
           saith the Lord your God.

No. 840: Ward and churches's neglect has been not help Israelites or Jews with financial help and assistance!

No. 840:
Ward and churches's neglect has been not help Israelites or Jews with financial help and assistance!

In my understanding of the word of God and the teachings of Jesus, the Christian church not only failed, but misunderstood, teacher errors and the Christianity that when standing up is more Anti Christian than it resembles the real, true and biblical Christianity.
Picture that Israel is the "neglected" area for Christians. We have a responsibility, a very big responsibility to help Israel with both coming home, also to help those in their own country and where else they are and are.

Jesus said that what you have done to one of my brethren - the other Israelites or Jews - that we had done for him!

Matt. 25. 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

That is what we have done for the second Israelites will remain there as a decisive factor how the Lord looks at us. Therefore, we are responsible to help Israel today rather than someone else. Here is the greatest responsibility on us Christians, and I would even go so far that responsibility lies too heavily on other free, western and democratic nations that have the ability to help like no other!

Basic text, what does it say in Matthew 25?
It is used the Greek word "adelphōn." Meaning brothers, so this word is entirely consistent with our Norwegian Bible, and it is unfortunately not always as God's word is very poorly translated some places.

In Verse 45 states: 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have not done it unto one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

Should we understand this that just as we help primarily our own family, so we will help Israel? Correct, they are our closest slaughter downs on the spiritual area. Have we forgotten this? Jesus himself said the following:
Joh.e. 4. 22 Ye worship ye know not we worship what we know; for salvation is from the Jews.

Jesus himself said: "For salvation is of the Jews"!

I think we have failed here, and failed to help and take care of Jews, both spiritual and practical. Not least economically, we have a huge responsibility to help.
Jesus in Matthew 25 as was the help primarily directed against adding it practical conditions so they had food in the stomach and not walked around starving or freezing. This includes of course our existence as human to have what we need to live a normal life. Is this something that stands in team today? Yes!
And how is it such. to the Israelites / Jews living in Israel today?
I scissors here out in the newspaper the day:
New report: Every third Israeli living in poverty.
Poverty in Israel is far greater than official figures show, claims a new report.

About 2.6 million, or every third Israeli, now live in poverty, the report from The template Foundation.

Foundation, which represents 150 local aid organizations working among the poor and homeless in Israel, said there is far worse than the authorities to admit, writes Ynetnews.
Going to bed hungry

The state-owned National Insurance Institute let last week published a report showing that 1.6 million Israelis live below the poverty line. Reality is thus even worse, it goes forward by Latets report, which shows that every fourth child in families on social assistance goes to bed hungry several times a month.

Children in families receiving assistance must 36 percent work to contribute to the family economy. Pretended report also shows a dramatic increase in the number of families who for financial reasons are forced to send their children to government boarding schools.
poor old

Also among Israel elderly poverty widespread. Number seniors who can not afford the necessary medicines and treatment, has increased by 14 percent, and over 70 percent of those who receive state or private social welfare, says that they do not get enough to keep hunger away.

Every tenth of them says that they are looking for food in other people's garbage bins and begging for small change.
many children

The template report is based on three surveys. The first of them is conducted among recipients of welfare from NGOs in Israel.

The second study builds on information from around 100 soup kitchens, while the third has asked a selection Israelis about how things are with private economy.

On this basis concludes The template that 2.55 million Israelis now live below the poverty line, of a population of around 8 million. Among the poor there are 932,000 children.
(end of quote).

Final Comment:
How can we help? You can help in several ways you can submit to us. And brand gift with Israel / Jews etc. so we shall disclose the gift. Hoping to be able to start with a project here later, but first we need to build a church or orginasjon that can perform this. I really want to help today's Israel, where the needs really are formidable. Have not want that what Jonas Gahr Støre said to be the case with us here in Norway when he was asked why Norway did not help Israel, but only the Palestinians. Israel managed himself and was responsible for Palestinian issues. Worse and more deceitful than this one can not say that. But enough about that! Will you help? Submit money here and mark gift:

Here is the account number of DNB: 0535 06 05 845

Be blessed in the Lord Jesus Christ!
The possibilities are many, but we must stand together and help each other forward in the service!

Matt. 25. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did you not? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have not done it unto one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

Who is your least mine? It is above all the children of Israel, how we have treated other people of Israel, that is how we have treated Jesus spoke he though! I believe in helping everyone. But above all, we will help our own. This is other believers and the Israelites!

No. 839: "Christmas" message is that God made a body of his own son!

No. 839:
"Christmas" message is that God made a body of his own son!

Think it really is impossible to understand fully the Incarnation. That son of God, not God himself, became man.
God the Father made a body to him in Mary's stomach and Jesus had blood in them that was as innocent and pure as Adam had before the fall, so he was also a human being like us fully.
Without this blood, he had not been able to provided salvation for us. The main concern is why the Christian message, the blood of Jesus that was, is and remains pure, holy and precious forever.

After what researchers have found out, so Jesus was born on the same day as the World Trade Centers Twin Towers were subjected to an act of terrorism and lewdness September 11, 2001. Then, two hijacked airliners crashed short intervals into separate the two tall towers. It erupted explosive fires, and shortly after the two towers collapsed down; few hours after raging another high-rise building in the complex. There were a total of three buildings that collapsed, the same day that Jesus was born into this world. Satan, the fallen angels and demons showed at least that, it was an anniversary which they hated. It was 2004 years between these events.

Here are some excerpts of what else I over the years have written about this subject and in the homepage or our blogs:

Celebrating Christmas

If we think of Christmas to celebrate the birth of Jesus, began not to celebrate Christmas before more than 400 years after Jesus was born. It was Roman bishops who coined the "Christian" Christmas celebrations.

In Jesus' time was the Roman Empire at its strongest. It got beyond centuries increasingly weakened their power. There were many Christians in the Roman Empire at Constantine time. To get united and strengthened the Roman Empire he decided around the year 312 AD that the Christian religion would become the state religion. He set himself as head of the church, and led much of the Greek and Roman avgudsdyrkningen and thinking into Christianity.

Romans worshiped many gods, but their supreme god was the sun. Their big winter festival took place on December 25th, which they saw as the sun's birthday. In the year 440 AD transferred church headstrong this date to be the birthday of Jesus.
They did this to please both those who worshiped the sun, and the Christians, as the Roman Empire's celebration joint could be December 25th, although the most likely time for the birth of Jesus in September.

The Bible says in several places that the celebrations in honor of God should not be mixed with paganism or made such nations are celebrating their gods.

"When the Lord thy God hath cut peoples and get them away from your face them now coming in to dispossess, and you dispels them and live in their country, then you should take heed that you are not driven to follow them, after they are destroyed and away from your face and that you do not seek their gods, saying, "How did these nations their gods? I will do it the same way." You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way. For all that is an abomination to the Lord, all that He hates they have done to their gods. "(5. Mos.12,29-32)

Notice that God does not say here that we should not worship other gods. Of course we will not it! But here it says that we must not worship the Lord our God in the same way as the heathen worship their gods. The origins of the "Christian" celebration of Christmas is that it is mixed with sun worshipers celebration of their god.

God has not required us to celebrate Jesus' birthday, but if we want to celebrate it, we should at least celebrated it with the eye that we are aware of the difference here.
That time scientists believe He was born, and not on the public holiday for sun worshipers! Out of planetary placements and courts, have scientists, just as the wise men from the East, concluded that Jesus was born on September 11 this year -3 between kl.18: 18 and 7:39 p.m., Jerusalem time.

I have personally experienced that God delights in us "celebrate" Christmas and Easter and Pentecost and others, if he and his children are in the center! Think we may well celebrate, but have the Lord in the center. I will not embellish this here, but it is important to be aware of this.

Question 2:
In summer claimed Benny Hinn Jesus had Father blood and not Mary blood. Votes this or is it unbiblical and objectionable? Ulf Ekman and the rest of the Christians in Scandinavia argue that it is unbiblical and objectionable.

I'm mostly disagree both with Ulf Ekman and religious movement in the most part, and also with Benny Hinn. But right here I agree with Benny Hinn, and it's really a very deep and eternal truth that the blood of Jesus is different than other people's blood. Jesus had God blood just as we have "Adams" blood as he did after the fall when he sinned.
Jesus' blood was of a different quality, origin and purity one our. We aspire to sin and our own. Jesus sought to live clean and do their heavenly Father. Jesus had no sin in and of itself. We have both sin and for us before we are saved. After salvation we have sin in us (sin latent) but not on us. It is removed because the blood of Jesus and reconciliation!
The female egg has no blood in it, nor the male sperm. But fertilization happens when these come together in the ovary, and a new life begins. Blood cells in this new creation comes from both father and mother. Blood type is determined from fertilization moment and are then protected by the placenta against any flow of maternal blood in the fetus.
Bible clearly says that the Holy Spirit was the divine instrument that caused conception of Jesus in Mary's womb. It was therefore no ordinary conception, but a supernatural act of God by planting His all existing son's life into the womb of Mary, with no conventional fertilization by a male sperm and ovum of Mary.
When God son's blood type was a separate and precious theme, it is inconceivable that Joseph and Mary could have given some of its blood from Adam to God unblemished lamb. Everything baby's blood came from His heavenly father by a supernatural act of creation by God. Jesus' blood was not contaminated by Adam's sin.
Moreover, we read that Jesus was also different with respect to the body's when he came in likeness of sinful flesh and in Hebrews says: Hebrews 10.5 .. A body you prepared for me ... God formed therefore the body of Jesus in heaven and added him their own pure blood before retiring fetus in Mary's womb. Jesus had absolutely no genes or something inherited from Maria, otherwise he had been sinful. Maria was just an ordinary sinner who anyone. She was found in grace worthy to carry a pregnancy without Jesus got something of her nature in itself. Therefore Jesus said when he was in the temple, Wist ye not that I must be about my Father's house .. or when he made his first under: Then he said to Mary: Woman ... Here he says that he knew that neither Joseph or Maria had something with his being to do, but he was only Son of the Father. "A body you prepared for me."
Heb. 9. 22 By law Yes, nearly all things are cleansed with blood, and no forgiveness without blood being shed.
The blood of Jesus is of the utmost importance when scripture says: "no forgiveness without blood being shed."
Otherwise it's a very interesting observation the late Ron Wyatt has done, see here:

This is from my commentaries Gospel of John 1.
9 The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world.

This third section takes as its starting point where the first ended in v.5. Thus he comes with the light of all people and the whole world.
Now it is emphasized that the light is the true light. It is a typical underlining that John makes about Jesus. ref. eg. true bread "in 6.32 and true vine" in 15.1. There is enough said with front second salvation figures who stood up and were not reliable. This's emphasis must surely be understood in light of the legal controversy that Jesus stands in. The word true "is on its way to giving extra weight to that Jesus is the only truly credible savior (more on Truth v.14). We note the same relationship between present and past in this verse as in v.5. and then probably also the explanation is the same: Although Jesus come into the world is an event that happened long ago, so lights salvation possibility against us still.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, but the world knew him not.

Jesus was now come into the world, who had created this our world. I know this is controversial for many, but basically as it is Jesus who is "responsible" for the creation of this world, with the "made" he had angels, at least one of the angels. Father was recumbent and pretended son unfold, together with angels. Angels are also in Scripture mentioned as Gods, therefore when it says eg. us, so we must also look at it that Jesus made himself using his Angels who was also his brothers and spiritual beings like him even before he became a man. Would not you agree, then let it lie. It was God the Father who was behind everything, then he who had given everything away from him and delighted in what happened! Just like a boss, Chairman and Director are responsible for their employees, both good and bad.

11 He came unto his own, but his own received him not.

We have two possibilities to react. The first is to reject, as most did and still does. This negative possibility mentioned first.
Actually the incomprehensible, because Jesus came to the world that he was involved in creating (ref. V3). Therefore world v11 called his own "and the people who live there for his own." To reject Jesus is thus to reject their own creating and brother.

12 All who received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God - those who believe in His name.

The Word says that he gave them the right to become children of God. That all who accepted Jesus he gave authority to become children of God. Accepting Jesus is the same as believing in his name. In the notation "name" is that Jesus is anointed by God to be the world's savior. In the Old Covenant was king, prophet and priest (chief priest) anointed. Therefore we speak about Jesus tripartite task. He is king, prophet and high priest. He is king over all the universe. He is a prophet who preaches the word of God, and he is the high priest who wears himself to God as a vicarious sacrifice. Jesus Christ took all sin on himself up on the cross and took the punishment on himself and died as a sinner and felon and was buried. Death, however, could not hold him for his death, he died to sin, but his life he lives to God. Therefore he stood up for our justification. Scripture says, "Him who knew no sin God made sin for us, that in him we might become the righteousness of God" 2 Corinthians 5:21.

Therefore whoever takes refuge in Jesus and go to him with their sins and failures and believes in him justified and is a child of God. He is born of God, ie he is reborn by the Spirit of God.

13 They are not born of flesh and blood, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.

By the new birth is the penitent sinner saving faith and a new heart and a new setting. It is a wonder of God's grace that happens in the individual heart when God's word first gets to show the sinner's true standing before the holy God and opposition to God ceases and the gospel will make his merciful deed.

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

V.14 must be the actual center of gravity throughout the prologue. It is instructive to study the way the verse is built on:
First we get two main clauses that say something about the Word: the Word became flesh "and ... dwelt among us."
Then follows a main sentence that says something about the church's reception: We saw his glory. "
The rest of the verse explains further what glory it concerns, first by saying where it comes from (as the only begotten son of the Father "), then by saying what it consists in (full of grace and truth").

Let's look at these five sentence joints one by one:

1) Word became flesh "
So easy, it's mystery in world history expressed. Three little words. But after reading about the Word divine rank in v1-5, so it is really groundbreaking to imagine that this divine logos entirely too would become a man like us.
This was unheard of for a Greek mindset that despised it created. (ref. v.3). It created was the second-class and inferior. How could God demean himself to be one with it?
This was madness for a Greek logos philosophy (1 Corinthians 1:23). Those who would win the right knowledge and insight into life secrets by abstract thinking, the audience will: Logos became man, was born on a particular day and died on a particular day. Logos could be seen, heard and taken on (ref. 1 Jn 1.1 to 4).
It was a blasphemous thought for Jews. They could probably be far when it came to distinguishing between different aspects of God, as we saw when it came wisdom theology v1-2. But to say that this wisdom of God was made man, it was completely uantakelig. When exceeding one boundary between God and creation, and were guilty of the grossest blasphemy.
It is therefore here in v. 14 John comes with what really distinguished Christianity from these other religions. This was so daring said that the church should fight to understand it for many centuries to come.
But it was a wonderful thought for all of us who accept the faith: this implies that God is not distant, but that he fully shares our plight!
We call this miracle of incarnation. In Greek it says that the Word became flesh, which in Latin is incarnatus, or Nynorsk: ikjøting. Christ - the Son of God - can be feed into a life where he really carries a fleshly body, so he must feel both hunger and thirst, cold and sorrow, loneliness and pain. It's pretty amazing that we have such faith in Christ!
2) .. dwelt among us "
Also this is an unheard thought for a Jew. Yes, God selected his residence in Israel: First, in the tabernacle that followed people on the desert journey (2 Mos 40.34), since the temple in Jerusalem (see the temple dedication and Solomon prayer in 1 Kings 8.1013).
But now says v.14 that God gets his residence in Israel by the Word. Thus it is said indirectly that the temple is past. Now God's presence linked to the person of Jesus.
We find the same theme clearer expressed in 2.13 to 22, where Jesus after tempelrenselsen proclaims himself as the new temple. See also John 4.21 to 24: The future worship of God should not be linked to a specific location, but must be in spirit and truth. So we let Christians to flock to a particular sanctuary in a specific place to seek God where he is finding. The person of Jesus is now the important meeting point between God and man.

Bible Comments Hebrews 10. 3 But victims are an annual reminder of sins.

Yet this has its positive aspects. It says that human sinners in need of salvation. That we are aware of our needs is the first step in the right direction.

4 For the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins impossible.

Then comes this is obvious: the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins impossible. Had they been able so had sin been removed when the law was in effect for approximately 1400 years and it was sacrificed million and totaling billions of animals, especially during festivals in Israel.

5 Wherefore Christ at his coming into the world:

Sacrifices and gifts you would not have,

but a body made you able to me;

We read that he had become like one of us to save and redeem us.

Joh. e. 1. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

6 burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not know about.

It was never the Father's perfect will that animals were dying for some people should go free. But for that he should be able to have compassion and mercy to Israel so it seemed a temporary and partial absolution. But it was only when the Son Jesus Christ that life and immortality were brought to light and we human child could fully take part in the salvation and the perfect remission of sins.

7 Then said I, Lo, here I come

to do your will, O God.

The scroll is written about me.

Jesus did God's will to the letter. But he also had the necessary qualifications to do so entirely. It was all for him.

Joh. e. 4 34 But Jesus said to them: "My food is to do the will which hath sent me, and to complete his work.

8 First he says: "Sacrifices and gifts, burnt offerings and sin offerings you would not have and did you not care," even though it is such sacrifices borne forward by law.

Had the law brought consummation, eternal bliss and salvation law had been good enough and sacrifices, gifts, burnt offerings and sin offerings have been able to save. Had it not been any sense that the Lord Jesus came.

9 Then he says, "Behold, here I come to do your will." He abolishes ie the first mentioned, to let the second apply.

By Jesus into the world happens for a substitution. All that the law represents is replaced with grace and life in Christ Jesus. In Galatians the fourth chapter, Paul says so strongly when he writes. That he compares the law by the slave woman and what should one do with her? Gal. 4. 30 But what saith the scripture? Rid of the slave woman and her son! For the slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman's son. 31 Therefore, brethren, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.
