    Joh 5:26
    For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
    Joh 5:27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

    Psa 119:15
    I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

    Psa 119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

    1. List of questions for meditation / reflection.

    Is life Good?
    Is all things originated or of God himself to include life?
    Is there any new universal concept under the sun?

    Is the Son of God only the Son of God because he was made the Son of Man having received life from the Father himself?
    Does the Son of God receiving life from God our Father himself limit God if Jesus is God?

    With Man being made in image and likeness of God and receiving dominion over the earth from God; Is the invisible things of God understood by creation that is made to include his divinity and power so we are without excuse?

    Or perhaps my questions or trying the Spirits is limiting God and I have no clue what I am talking about because God is a Mystery or the faith we have received from God is a Mystery despite his messengers and prophets sent?

    Joh 5:26-27 reminded me a little of Num 23:19 . The way Num 23:19 is translated or written it seems only one way as in metaphorical however thru study "2Ti 2:15 " I find it is also literal.

    Now with Joh 5:26-27 it may seem as though the Son of God only received life from the Father because he became Son of Man as interpreted;

    However thru study "2 Tii 2:15" a firstborn and beginning of creation of God that was with God in the beginning would receive life from the Father of Spirits himself so nothing new under the son when it comes to the concept of life:

    It all has an Origination or Father who those that believe refer to as the only true God himself; not anyone lesser or that came from him.

    I think, it describes what 'the Kingdom is near' means.

    1. Upon further reflection and dialogue with those of Abrahamic faith; The origin of eternal life is of God himself who not only was never a man but has never died. But to those of the Abrahamic Fatih who disagree; I am limiting God. :expressionless:

    1a.
    Joh 5:26
    For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
    Joh 5:27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

    Luk 18:18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
    Luk 18:19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

    1b.
    Num 23:19
    God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

    Mat 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

    Joh 5:37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

    1Ti 1:17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
