What did Jesus mean when he said evil things you do come from inside us?
Hes referring to the sin nature of mankind. The part of us that we have before salvation. (We also keep this after salvation, but are discouraged to embrace it.) Sin nature is also referred to as "flesh" or "fleshly things" or "earthly things."

Presuming the question to refer to the three times the NewTestament records God's voice speaking from heaven while Jesus wason the earth: Matthew 3:17 - And suddenly a voice came fromheaven, saying, " This is My beloved Son, in whom I am wellpleased ."

I believe that he meant for a man and a women to get togather in marriage and reproduce a family. Answer I believe it was God who said that and not Jesus; Gen.1 .

Jesus Christ identifies Himself as follows: Jesus Christ is: . The Beginning . The way, the truth and the life. . The light of the world . The End (John 8:12) Again, therefore, Jesus spake to them, saying, `I am the light of the world; he who is following me shall not walk in the darkne…ss, but he shall have the light of the life.' (John 14:6) Jesus saith to him, `I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one doth come unto the Father, if not through me;' Jesus when He says, `I am the way, and the truth, and the life', He does not mean that He possesses the truth or is speaking the truth but He means it in a much more literal "way", that He is Truth itself. And because this is true then all that comes from Him is Truth. Even the use of the word "way" alludes to the more literal meaning. In that, He is referring to the way (path) and that path is made up of Truth (Christ), and if you live and follow the Truth then you will experience Reality, whereas Truth is what makes up Reality.

dieing Coming to Jesus would be being saved, accepting him by faith that he died and rose again and is alive so that we can live. Read the Bible for yourself and he will reveal himself to you.
Answer The true meaning of course Jesus or John, who wrote the verse 19:30 has to give. We can assume some:. My life is finished, their erucifixion is finished, they finished me before I finish my work, the vinegar given to drink is finish or god's word is finished

The statement that "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing" is often attributed to Edmund Burke. Edmund Burke never said this but, in 1770, he wrote in 'Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents' that "when bad men combine, the good must associate; else… they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle." 001.^ Daniel Ritchie (1 January 1990).

The Hebrew word Messiah means "the anointed". In earlier times, kings were anointed to show that they were accepted as rightful kings of Judah; the practice was also followed when high priests were appointed. The Greek translation of Messiah is Christ . After the Babylonian Exile ended the J…udahite monarchy, the expectation grew that, one day, a new leader would come and would lead Judah to military victory over its enemies. This leader would be anointed and would be known as the Messiah. The Gospels have Jesus saying he was the Messiah, or Christ, not as the military leader that most Jews expected, but a spiritual Messiah who would lead his people to a spiritual victory. (MORE)
Jesus knew his time on Earth was short, and the Holy Prophecy was at hand. Therefore, he gave his disciples the Holy Sacrament, symbolic of his body and his blood. It is a covenant for us to be "Christ-like". So when he says, "Do this in memory of me", he's telling them (and all of us) to be Christ-…like. (MORE)

Many feel that the Greek term used here for ' ask' is more accurately translated ' KEEP ON asking', in the continuous sense, so if you KEEP ON asking God for something, in harmony with his will, you will get an answer. This was direction from Jesus for his followers to be persistent when… praying. Not to give up until the prayer is answered one way or another, with a Yes, No, or Wait, because God WILL answer all prayers from a sincere and righteous heart. Other scriptures that back this up are: **Be persevering in prayer, remaining awake..with thanksgiving(Colossians 4:2) **Pray incessantly (1 Thessalonians 5:17) **With one accord all these were persisting in prayerâ¦(Acts 1:14) **Then he went on to tell them an illustration with regard to the need for them always to pray and not to give up. . .(Luke 18:1) God is the 'hearer of prayer' (Psalm 65:2) and doesn't' give this job to anyone else. Jesus told us how to pray to his father and also what would be acceptable things to ask for. (Luke 11:1-2) (Matthew 6:9-13) (Matthew 6:14&15) (James 4:1-3) He then added that we must " Keep on asking, and it will be given YOU; keep on seeking, and YOU will find; keep on knocking, and it will be opened to YOU. For everyone asking receives, and everyone seeking finds, and to everyone knocking it will be opened. â¦ Therefore, if YOUâ¦ know how to give good gifts to YOUR children, how much more so will YOUR Father who is in the heavens give good things to those asking him?

his is not correct. Jesus said that no one comes to the father but through me.

He also said "Thou shalt not live by bread alone but by every word the proceedeth forth from the mouth of God". Christ is the bread of life in that His words will help save us in the kingdom of God. The bread that we eat as food is to help keep us alive while here on the earth
Jesus came from Heaven, from above, and His disciples chose to follow him, knowing that they would suffer, but that they would have an eternal reward in Heaven, thus they wouldn't be of this world either. Another Thought Scripture says that those who are born again are a "new creation in Christ… Jesus." Scripture also says that believers in Christ are citizens of heaven. Jesus is making a fundamental statement that there are two classes of men and women, those who are of this world and those who are not. Much, much more is wrapped up in this concept and would take more room than is offered here. Suffice it to say that Christ declares Himself and His followers "not of this world." To get a better feel for this divide, read the book of John, chapter 17. In fact, read John 15:18 through John 17:26. (MORE)

No! Jesus was refering to the Holy Spirit. Answer 2: the above answer is completely wrong according to the teachings of Islam: 1.

What prepares us for Jesus' coming is the New Testament because it was before Jesus' was alive
You should read Matthew 24:36, "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven but my father only" This passage informs us that Jesus doesn't know, the Angels in heaven surely don't know, only God knows. Jesus doesn't give us a date. Instead, he gives us signs to look for, man…y which have already appeared. When we see the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place, that's when we can be certain the tribulation time is upon us. . The abomination of desolation is already in the holy place. 2Thess2:3-3 The holy place was the local churches and congregations of course. God ordained the church to declare the Word of God for 1,955 years. The church age has come to an end as of 1988, and Satan is ruling there, employed by God. Now, as God promised in Daniel 12, He is revealing to us information about the time of the end. Which includes the Biblical calendar of history coming right out of the pages of Genesis 5, 7, and 11. The whole Bible talks about the end, and every verse is taken into account when we preach that we know when the end is near. Please take your time to read Acts 1:7-8 Acts 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all JudÃ¦a, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. When the church age started, God told them, it is NOT for YOU to know the times of the seasons which the Father has put in his own power but ye SHALL receive power to know the times and the seasons. this harmonizes perfectly with Eccl 8:5 Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart discerneth(KNOWS) both time and judgment. Eccl 8:6 Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man [is] great upon him. Eccl 8:7 For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be? Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. IFFFF therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Isa 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. There is just so much information Also, "no man" is speaking about natural man in himself. The verse in Matthew and mark does NOT say that no one will know. Simply says no one knows. Which is true. 1Cor 2:10 But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 1Cor 2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth NO MAN, BUT the Spirit of God. 1Cor 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 1Cor 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 1Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.

I will not leave you orphans ; I will come to you."

What did Jesus mean when he said I tell you the truth some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power?
This is to be found in Mark 9:1, where it foreshadows Mark chapter 13. The reference is intended to be an introduction to the fuller statement in chapter 13, because the two statements are paired in Mark 's chiastic structure. In Mark 9:1, Jesus briefly tells the disciples that some of them see the… kingdom of God come to earth before they die. This goes unremarked until, in chapter 13 Jesus prophesies the end of the world and his own return on clouds of glory, during the lifetimes of those then living. The references to the destruction that occurred in the late 60s gives an indication of when this was expected to occur. Jesus told his listeners that they would see the Temple destroyed, and the abomination of desolation, followed by the Son of man coming in clouds of glory, and that this would take place during their own generation. Mark 9:1 was copied more or less faithfully as Matthew 16:28 and Luke 9:27, but we find it ceases to be an introduction to their versions of the second, fuller passage, which the two later evangelists revised, with good reason. By the 80s of the first century, when Matthew's Gospel was written, the return predicted in Mark's Gospel was becoming unlikely - the generation had already passed - and the author of Matthew had to change the emphasis away from an impending end of the world. While copying as faithfully as possible from Mark, he changed the position of the sentence about "this generation", relative to the destruction of the great buildings, so that it referred to something else altogether. He added, and emphasised, material where Jesus told the disciples that the end is not yet, and that no man knows when the end of the world will occur. Matthew 24:21 talks of great tribulation that will be followed by the end of the world and the second coming. Luke was somewhat later than Matthew and even more clearly could not say that the destruction of Jerusalem meant the end of the world. This gospel talks about the end of the world as vaguely in the future, keeping the reference to this generation, but in reference to the need to preach the gospel. The authors of Matthew and Luke may not have even realised that the author of Mark intended this passage as an introduction to the fuller passage. By amending their versions of the main passage, they left Matt 16:28 and Luke 9:27 hanging as obscure oracles that seems meaningless. It is only in Mark that we see it as a paired introduction to the prophecy that the world will end within the lifetimes of some of the disciples. Answer: This is actually covered in Matthew, Mark and Luke under the "transfiguration" account. Jesus is quoted at the end of Matthew 16: "Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom." (Matt.16:28) And takes up again with chapter 17: "And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, and was transfigured before them..." (Matt.17:1-2). Mark relates the account in chapter 9... not 13. "And He said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the Kingdom of God come with power..." (Mark 9:1). Luke 9:27 says: "...I tell you the Truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Kingdom of God." Matthew reveals that what Peter, John and James saw was a "VISION" of the Kingdom [17:9], with Jesus, Moses and Elijah appearing to them in their "glorified" state. The three men saw Jesus then as John describes Jesus in Revelation as He appears now at His Father's throne in heaven [compare: Matt.17:2 with Rev.1:13-16]. To be sure... all of Judaea was anticipating the establishment of the Kingdom of God on the earth around that time, because all the prophecies seemed to be pointing to it. Jesus' disciples eagerly expected Him to produce it on many occasions during their three-and-a-half years walking with Him... especially, with His promise that they would be ruling the Kingdom with Him on their own thrones: "...ye which have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel." (Matt.19:28) They were disappointed time and time, again for three years... and devastated on the night of Jesus' arrest and subsequent murder the next day. They had no clue. Expectation of the return of Jesus Christ has been entertained by every generation since then. Rome's destruction of the Temple looked like the end of the world to them. Napoleon... World War I... World War II, were all seen by many as events signalling what men call the "end of the world" and Jesus' return. It's the anticipation of it... and the misunderstanding of the prophecies... that's kept it alive and urgent and vital in the minds and hearts of believers. If any one of the generations since Jesus' ascension into heaven had known it was going to take over 2000-plus years before Jesus returned, and that they were going to be dead and mouldering in the grave for centuries, how "enthusiastic" might they have been about spreading the "good news" of the Kingdom? [which is actually not being preached so much in these last days] When Paul wrote to the Thessalonians... it's evident that even he thought he would be one of the saints who would be ALIVE when Jesus "gathered" them into the clouds. "...then WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN shall be caught up together with them [ 'THEM' are the DEAD IN CHRIST who shall be resurrected BEFORE the ones that are alive on the earth are gathered] in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air..." (I Thess.4:17). But, for the three men whom Jesus took into the mountain with Him that day -- they "saw the Kingdom of God before they died" as Jesus promised... in a VISION ... and kept it to themselves as commanded, until after Jesus raised from the dead. And recorded it for us, today. It was a "vision" that they saw. That's what Jesus meant. (MORE)
Jesus means he is the only person who can give you life, show the way to heaven.
He meant He is the truth and no one can get to the father but through him.
The earliest mention of Jesus talking about his second coming is in Mark 9:1: " And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power ." Mark chapter 13 provides a fuller pro…phecy of the second coming, describing the events of the First Roman-Jewish War and the Jerusalem civil war of 70 CE, then says that this will be followed by the return of the Son of man: (Mark 13:24-26) " But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. " Of course, this prophecy did not come to pass, but at the time of writing (about 70 CE), it certainly seemed as if the end was nigh. By the 80s of the first century, when Matthew's Gospel was written, the return predicted in Mark's Gospel was becoming unlikely - the generation had already passed - and the author of Matthew realised that Mark's prophecy had to be corrected. In Matthew chapter 24, while copying as faithfully as possible from Mark , he changed the emphasis away from an impending end of the world and changed the position of the sentence about "this generation", relative to the destruction of the great buildings, so that it referred to something else altogether. He added, and emphasised, material where Jesus told the disciples that the end is not yet, and that no man knows when the end of the world will occur. (MORE)
Jesus said this to Martha whose brother Lazarus was dead. Martha believed that at his prayer God would give any thing, (Joh 11:22) but he was telling her that by his word he could work anything. Martha believed in a resurrection at the last day (Joh 11:24) Christ tells her that he had that powe…r lodged in his own hand, that the dead were to hear his voice (Joh_5:25), and infers that He who could raise a world of men that had been dead many ages could doubtless raise one man that had been dead but four days. Resurrection is a return to life; Christ is the author of that return, and of that life. We look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come, and Christ is both; the author and principle of both, and the ground of our hope of both. (MORE)
Jesus said, "I thirst." with an 'i,' not a 'u.' "I thirst," means "I'm thirsty. I need/want a drink."
Could there be a force of evil either inside or outside a person which makes them do terrible things?
No. People have 'free will' and make their own decisions. No evil forces or good forces in the supernatural sense exist.
The only time that it is recorded that Jesus said this, is in response to a question from two of his disciples as to where he was staying, and his answer is to your question too: Master,) where dwellest thou?

Being King of the Jews has a spiritual connotation that's higher than simply being the King of the Israelis. Jews are Jews by choice: by faith and obedience to God's word they are adherents. An Israeli is an Israeli by birth: a citizen. There's no choice involved. He meant He was a descendant of Kin…g David, by blood, DNA, and by the Spirit, and that the Jewish throne, with all its rights and prerogatives, rightfully belonged to Him. At this writing, it is Christmas time. It's a curiosity of Christmas that the wise men said they were following the star of the King of the Jews (Matthew 2:2). When He subsequently hung on the cross, Pilate had a title put on the cross: Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews (John 19:19). [Curiosity: Both these references are composed entirely of repeated prime numbers.] That constitutes the testimony of two witnesses (more, actually). In addition to everything else He was, Jesus was the King of the Jews. Another Answer : As the promised one whom Moses spoke of and David wrote of, Jesus fulfilled the Sceptre Promise placed upon Judah (4th son of Israel) and assumed the eternal Throne of David - making Him King of kings and Lord of lords. Additionally, the tribe of Judah (Jews) was given the awesome responsibility to keep, record, and maintain the inspired word - called the 'oracles of God' for all mankind. Each of the other 11 sons of Israel called Israelites had been told their futures with Joseph's two sons - Ephraim and Manasseh receiving the Birthright Promise (see Genesis 48 and 49). (MORE)

The word shortened means 'cut short.' Short of speeding up Earth's revolutions and making the days themselves subsequently "shorter," (which could be an implication but most likely isn't [See Jeremiah 33:19-22]) we are left with the understanding that it is the number of days that are cut short.… He meant "if the number of those days were not cut short ," implying that the number of days originally intended to occur was to be significantly more than those which finally eventuate.

Here is the Scripture that you refer to: Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake (John 14.11) Jesus said this in response to Philip's question, "Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us." (John 14.8) Philip was one of Jesus' twel…ve disciples and had seen many of Jesus' miracles, and Jesus was reminding him that: "he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;" (John 14.9) And - "he doeth the works."

Those who wrote the Scripture were witnesses of what Jesus said, and they have passed his teachings on to us.
It meant that "Whoever is not teaching against what Messiah was teaching, is for us, even if they were not walking with them". It was in reference to others teaching in the name of Yeshua (jesus) and teaching his teachings, but were not physically walking with Yeshua and his group.
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are really good places in the Bible to find parables Jesus spoke.
John 7:1-9 The Jewish Feast of Tabernacles was at hand in Jerusalem and Jesus' unbelieving brothers asked Him why are you waiting around, go to the feast. Jesus answered them saying "My time has not come yet." In other words Jesus was completely dependant on the Father's direction and the Father had… not told Him to go to Jerusalem. (Jesus was in constant contact with the Father and obeyed Him). In the first verse we are told that the Jews sought to kill Jesus. Jesus knew that a time was coming for Him to die on the cross of Calvary, but this was not the time. Jesus answered, "But your time is always ready". The unbelieving brothers were not under God's time table, they didn't even believe so they could do whatever. Their time was any time. (MORE)
