John 12:47–48 — Verse Meaning — Jesus’ Judgment in the Last Days

  • John 12:47–48

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

These verses tell us that instead of expressing words to do the work of judgment and purification of the last days, Jesus Christ was incarnated into the world to redeem mankind from sin, so that mankind could avoid being condemned and cursed by the law and enjoy God’s grace and blessings. Although we have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and forgiven of our sins, our sinful nature and satanic corrupt disposition are still deeply rooted in us. We are still bound by sin, so we frequently lie and deceive others and thus sin against the Lord, and we often reveal arrogance, conceit, selfishness and despicableness, deceit and craftiness, and other corrupt satanic dispositions. We live in a cycle of sinning and confessing with no ways to extricate ourselves. As a result, we often cannot obey God’s words. So, Jesus Christ will return to express all the truths that save mankind in the last days, and do the work of judgment to purify our sinful nature and change our satanic disposition, so that we will be cleansed and saved, and become people who fear God, obey God and love God, and be brought by God into His kingdom. From this, we can see that God’s expressing words to do the work of judgment in the last days is the most crucial work that allows mankind to be cleansed and saved.
