John 3:22-36Jesus is above all things and people. He is the ruler of Heaven and earth. Nothing can happen on earth without His knowledge, for all things come from Heaven. "A person cannot receive even one thing unless it is given him from Heaven." (3:27). We must remember that He has complete control. Our decrease is His increase. All we have was given by Him. God is true and only in this belief can we live. "Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on Him." (3:36). We are nothing and He is all.
