Well yes, He did. Lets look at John Chapter 5. This is one of my favorite portions of scripture. Jesus heals on the sabbath, equates himself with the Father, and explains whom Moses was talking about. Just like the road to Emmaus, Jesus broke down the old testament scriptures.
Then he equated himself with the father in John 5:17
By this time the Jews were ready to stone him, but he gave them a quick bible study on the old testament patriarch Moses.
He skilfully brought their attention to Moses. He reminded them of their reverence of Moses and the fact that they can find eternal life in the scriptures. He also pointed out their misguided motivation. They sought the honour of men rather than the honour of God. They trusted Moses, a man, but they didn't understand what he said. They failed to see Jesus as the one in whom Moses spoke of.
- the manna
- the water
- the savior
- the rock
All of these referred to Jesus. The Jews were blinded by pride. Their hearts were hardened. Their motivations were skewed. They were trusting in religion rather than a relationship with God. They were dead in their sins and didn't even know it.
It is possible today to have an outward appearance of religion and still not be converted. We can say and do all kinds of Christian things, yet still not be saved. We tend to look at the outward appearance of man, but God looks at the heart.
Is your heart right with God? Do you have an outward appearance of religion, yet your soul is in jeopardy? Be careful. Eternity is not something to be toying with. Examine your heart. It just might save your soul.
