The Gospel of John portrays Jesus repeatedly saying that his words come directly from God.
“for I have not spoken on my own, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment about what to say and what to speak. And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I speak, therefore, I speak just as the Father has told me.” (John 12:49-50)
“…the one who sent me is true, and I declare to the world what I have heard from him.” (John 8:26)
“Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own; but the Father who dwells in me does his work.”(John 14:10)
“…the word you hear is not mine but is from the Father who sent me.” (John 14:24)
“My teaching is not mine but his who sent me.” (John 7:16)
So, Jesus tells us that his words come directly from his father, God. But Jesus doesn’t just want us to listen to the words given to him by his father. He wants us to act on them.
“You are my friends if you do what I command you.” (John. 15:14)
“My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.” (Luke 8:21; Matthew 12:50; Mark 3:35)
“Blessed …are those who hear the word of God and obey it!” (Luke 11:28)
“I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, hears my words, and acts on them. That one is like a man building a house, who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock; when a flood arose, the river burst against that house but could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears, and does not act, is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the river burst against it, immediately it fell, and great was the ruin of that house.” (Luke 6:47-49)
Finally, Jesus said that his words are spirit and life and they will never pass away.
“It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is useless. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” (John 6:63)
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” (Matt 24:35; Mark 13:31; Luke 21:33)
Jesus is Lord!
