John 8:42, — “Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.”
Jesus is speaking to a group of people here who were separated from Him because they belonged to another god, and were not true Believers. He clearly shows these people are not being able to receive Him or His anointed because they were living under a different spirit and power, their “father the devil.” He clearly shows that they persecuted Him because there of the spiritual separation of the being under the influence of their god whom he names as “Ye are of your father the devil.”Jesus then sets forth the evil activities of the people who were imitators of their father the Devil. They worship this false god and copied his evil ways.
John 8:44-47, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47 He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.”KJV
The next verse is very important for true believers to understand. Unbelievers that follow another god cannot understand or hear the Lord’s Word. They only understand the lies of their father. In John 8:43, “Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.”.[Why do ye not understand my speech?] Teen lalian teen emeen, This my mode of speaking-when illustrating spiritual by natural things: Lalia refers to the manner of speaking; logos, to the matter or subject on which he spoke. For lalian, the Codex Bezae had originally aleetheian: why do ye not acknowledge this TRUTH of mine? [Because ye cannot hear my word.] That is, ye cannot bear my doctrine: it comes too close to you; it searches your hearts, detects your hypocrisy, and exposes your iniquitous intentions and designs; and as ye are determined not to leave your sins, so ye are purposed not to hear my doctrine.
Jesus then exposes the unregenerate character of the unbelieving religious person that serves their god Satan. Notice that the Lord is blunt. He get directly to the point in John 8:44, — “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” I must say here that I do not teach the “Serpent Seed” doctrine, that is, as some teach the William Brannam false doctrine that Eve had sex with the devil and produced a child. There absolutely no scriptural basis to this false doctrine.
