19耶稣对他们说：我实实在在的告诉你们，子凭着自己不能做什么，惟有看见父所做的，子才能做；父所做的事，子也照样做。 20父爱子，将自己所做的一切事指给他看，还要将比这更大的事指给他看，叫你们希奇。 21父怎样叫死人起来，使他们活着，子也照样随自己的意思使人活着。 22父不审判什么人，乃将审判的事全交与子，23叫人都尊敬子如同尊敬父一样。不尊敬子的，就是不尊敬差子来的父。 24我实实在在的告诉你们，那听我话、又信差我来者的，就有永生；不至于定罪，是已经出死入生了。 25我实实在在的告诉你们，时候将到，现在就是了，死人要听见神儿子的声音，听见的人就要活了。 26因为父怎样在自己有生命，就赐给他儿子也照样在自己有生命，27并且因为他是人子，就赐给他行审判的权柄。 28你们不要把这事看作希奇。时候要到，凡在坟墓里的，都要听见他的声音，就出来；29行善的，复活得生；作恶的，复活定罪。 30我凭着自己不能做什么，我怎么听见就怎么审判。我的审判也是公平的；因为我不求自己的意思，只求那差我来者的意思。
人生，就是一场出生入死的旅程，你同意吗？世界上的每一个人都在出生入死地活着，这是人所能认识的关于人生的残酷事实。但是，今天我们所讲的人生不是人所能看到、体会和感悟的出生入死的人生，而是耶稣基督所启示的出死入生的人生。因为死亡不是一个终点，而是永生的开始。这就是约翰福音第五章19-30耶稣亲自启示的真理：因为耶稣是神，因为耶稣掌管人的生死，因为耶稣能赐给人永生。明白耶稣的这个启示，你会拥有一个完全不同的人生，一个出死入生的人生。 一、父子为一 : 耶稣所做的第一个实实在在地宣告是他与父为一（ 19-23节） 父所做的一切 子正在做的一切 二、永生之神 : 耶稣的第二个宣告是，他宣告自己是永生之神。他是神的儿子。相信他是神的儿子，相信神的人会如何呢？ （24节） 福音 领受福音的管道 1）听耶稣的话 2）信差耶稣来的父神 三、审判之神 : 耶稣的第三个宣告是，他宣告自己是审判之神。第三个实实在在的真理：耶稣是审判之神。 神子是审判者（25-27节） 1）神的儿子是赐生命者 2）神的儿子是审判者 神子是复活（28-30节） 1）身体复活的尊严 2）复活的普遍性 3）复活的方法 4）不同的结局 a. 作恶的被定罪 b. 专注在”行善”的条件上
Scripture: John 5:19-30
19 Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed. 21 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. 22 Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, 23 that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.24 “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. 25 Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. 27 And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.28 “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29 and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned. 30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.
Life is a journey from birth to death, do you agree? Everyone in the world is living toward death. This is a cruel fact about life that people can recognize. However, the life we are talking about today is not a life from birth to death that people can see, experience and comprehend, but a life from death to life revealed by Jesus Christ. Because, death is not an end, but the beginning of eternal life. This is the truth that Jesus personally revealed, in the fifth chapter of the Gospel of John 19-30: because Jesus is God, because Jesus is in charge of life and death, and because Jesus can give people eternal life. Understand this revelation of Jesus, and you will have a completely different life, a life that passes from death to life.

The purpose of the Apostle John’s writing "The Gospel of John" is: remember these things to make you believe that Jesus is the Christ and the Son of God, and that if you believe in him, you can have life in his name (John 20:31)
This passage reveals to us again: Jesus is the Son of God, He is the Lord of Judgment, He is the God who is one with the Father, and He is the God of eternal life. Just as the gospel tells us: believe in Jesus and believe that he is the Son of God, and we can have life in Jesus' name and enjoy eternal life.
God has worked in our lives: He has raised us from superstition and ignorance, He has raised us from sin and love of sin, He has raised us from sorrow.
God vows to promise himself that he will use love to fulfill his work and fulfill his promise of your resurrection. Let us remember the resurrection given by God, be grateful to live in this world toward eternity, and prepare ourselves to welcome the Lord.
