7:1 After these things Emmanuel
walked in Galilee, for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought
to kill him.
7:2 Now the Jews' feast
of tabernacles was at hand.
7:3,4 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence and go into
Judaea, that your disciples also may see the works that you do. For there
is no man that does any thing in secret and he himself seeks to be known
openly. If you do these things, show yourself to the world.

7:5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
means they probably thought he was nuts, as did others:.
7:6 Then Emmanuel said unto them, My time is not yet come but your
time is always ready.

4:23; Revelation 3:20.
7:7 The world cannot hate you, but me it hates because I testify of
it that the works thereof are evil.
about two different timelines,
the one Emmanuel was on and the one the others were on.
7:8 Go you up unto this feast.(it
was the time of the ancient Mosaic Law's Feast
of Tabernacles). I go not up yet unto this feast for
my time is not yet full come.
1:7 "The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that
all, through him might believe."

14:12. People need to come to see this themselves from the results
in their lives (?)
and from your prayers and
meditation with them in mind. Emmanuel telling them of their wrongs
(example, Matthew 23:13-33) was
one of the purposes God came to Earth to do in and through the one we call
Emmanuel. Emmanuel caused
an uproar in the religious circles of His day. It was His purpose then
to show that the accepted way was corrupt. Now, in this day, it's
higher consciousness availability.

the Baptist's too, it got them killed, as it also did for those

then this scripture?.Luke

influenced by the dark side 'right out of the gate' as they say:.Genesis

And had they known this in 1Peter 3:15,
they probably could have avoided their sad endings and had they been cognizant
of this scripture at the time, they would have had more of a 'heads
up' approach in life:.Proverbs
20:2 "The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion. Whoso provokes
him to anger sins against his own soul." Proverbs
25:8 "Go not forth hastily to strive, lest you know not what to do
in the end thereof, when your neighbor has put you to shame." Proverbs
22:11 "He that loves pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the
king shall be his friend."

killed for us! All things in our lives work for good if we remain in
alignment with love.(Romans
8:28; 1Peter 3:13; Luke
that's what God is:.1John
4:8-16. God opens
minds when He's ready to.(*).
The other disciple
(not John the baptist) apparently was the only one of the disciples to
live as long as he did. He was banished to the Isle
of Patmos, but unlike the others,
lived a life free of martyrdom.

7:9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
7:10 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto
the feast, not openly but as it were in secret.
7:11-13 Then the Jews sought him at the feast and said, Where is he?
And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him, for some
said, He is a good man. Others said, Nay, but he deceives the people. Howbeit
no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
7:14 Now about the midst of the feast Emmanuel
went up into the temple and taught.
7:15 And the Jews marveled,
saying, How knows this man letters, having never learned?
7:16 Emmanuel answered them and said, My doctrine is not mine, but
his that sent me.
7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know
of the doctrine, whether it be of God or whether I speak of myself.
7:18 He that speaks of himself seeks his own glory, but he that seeks
his glory that sent him, the same is true and no unrighteousness is in
7:19,20 Did not Moses give you the law and yet none of you keep the
law? Why go you about to kill me? The people answered and said, You have
Who goes about to kill you?
7:21 Emmanuel answered and said unto them, I have done one work and
you all marvel.
7:22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision;
not because it is of Moses, but
of the fathers and you on the sabbath day circumcise a man.
7:23 If a man on the sabbath
day receive circumcision,
that the law of Moses should not be broken,
are you angry at me, because I have made a man every whit
little bit whole; completely whole).on
the sabbath day?
7:24 Judge not according to the appearance but judge righteous judgment..(?)
John 7:25-27 Then said some of them of Jerusalem,
Is not this he, whom they seek to kill? But lo, he speaks boldly and they
say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
Howbeit we know this man whence he is, but
when Christ comes, no man knows whence he is.
7:25-27 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they
seek to kill? But lo, he speaks boldly and they say nothing unto him. Do
rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ? Howbeit we know this man
he is.(we know the place
of his birth and residence), but when Christ comes.(and
He came in the generation in which these things were said to:.Matthew
24:34, no man knows whence he is.
7:28 Then cried Emmanuel in the temple as he taught, saying, You both
know me and you know whence I am. And I am not come of myself, but he that
sent me is true, whom you
is in one's heart no man physically sees Him:.Matthew
7:29 But I know him.(original
for 'him' in both places in this verse is 'same as'; meaning, He was God,
just as we also).
For I am from.(original
'of').him and he
has sent me.
7:30 Then they sought to take him, but no man laid hands on him because
his hour was not yet come.
7:31,32 And many of the people believed on him and said, When Christ
comes, will he do more miracles than these which this man has done? The
Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him and
the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.
7:33,34 Then said Emmanuel unto them, Yet a little while am I with
you, and then I go unto him that sent me. You shall seek me and shall not
find me and where I am, thither
you cannot come.
7:35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Where will he go, that we
shall not find him? Will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles.(who
were these?).and teach the
7:36 What manner of saying is this that he said, You shall seek me
and shall not find me and where I am, thither you cannot come?
7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Emmanuel stood and
cried, saying, If any man thirst
let him come unto me and drink.
7:38 He that believes on me.(believing
is the important thing, not physical do's & don'ts some believe are
needed for spiritual qualification:.Hebrews
6:1,2), as the scripture has said.(talking
about the scriptures regarding
Emmanuel in the Old Testament), out of his belly flows rivers
of living water.
John 7:39 But this spake he of the Spirit, which
they that believe on him should receive, for the Holy Ghost was not yet
given, because that Emmanuel was not yet glorified.
7:39 But this spake he of the Spirit,
that believe on him should
receive.(that is, belief
in the pathway that Emmanuel came to reveal which was the way into the
holiest of the holiest and what is the holiest of the holiest? The Creator-Father
is the intelligent energy from which all is and into which our minds can
become aligned, so we too have all the properties of the Father:.Philippians
2:5,6), for the Holy Ghost
was not yet given, because that Emmanuel was not
7:40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said,
Of a truth this is the Prophet..
7:41 Others said, This is the Christ.(the
of Father-God). But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
7:42 Has not the scripture said.(Micah
5:2,3), That Christ comes of the seed of David and out
of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
Notes: Speaking of the prophet who they expected to precede
the coming of the Messiah,
either Elijah or Jeremiah:.Matthew
16:14; Deuteronomy 18:15,18;
7:43 So there was a division among the people because of him.
7:44-46 And some of them would have taken him, but no man laid hands
on him. Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees and they
said unto them, Why have you not brought him? The officers answered, Never
man spake like this man.
7:47,48 Then answered them the Pharisees,
Are you also deceived? Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed
effect saying, we're the elite,
the smart ones and we don't believe on this guy, so you're just stupid
7:49 But this people who knows not the law are cursed.
Pharisees, who were trained in the Old
Testament, had their religion based entirely on this and thus
viewed the common people with contempt.
was he that came to Emmanuel by night, being one of them.(a
Pharisee, but was open in mind to truth: verse 49 above).and
said unto them, Does our law judge any man, before it hears him and know
what he does?
one of them could see how truly ignorant the others were and so he asked
some questions of the others.
7:52 They answered and said unto him, Are you also of Galilee? Search
and look, for out of Galilee arises no prophet.
erroneous declaration by the Pharisees who claimed they knew the Bible
(which comprised of only the Old Testament then) and had in actuality moved
so far away from it and into their own doctrines, they became increasingly
corrupt. Jonah and Nahum
were Old Testament prophets and were of Galilee (a region
of northern Israel (map), so these leaders
of religion didn't even know the Bible they claimed their religion
was based on, but they were good at disdaining others out of their own
hardhearted arrogance: John 7:41.. Galilee was the northernmost part of
and the ancient
kingdom of Israel:.2Kings
7:53 And every man went unto his own house.
