[Warren’s (W’s) PS#1—Cobbey Crisler insights on John 5.19-30 (RR), Jesus’ humility
John 5:19 is Jesus’ famous statement, “The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do.” Taking this apart, it really gives you what man’s role is. What is it? It’s reflection. It’s image.
Man is not original in what he does. What he does stems from the original which is God. Then it reflects originality. Otherwise there would be competition for the job of Creator. Under monotheism there is no possibility for such competition (“For what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.”)
He took the Son of Man through every problem that the world could hurl at him and proved that even the Son of Man can be victorious and not a creature of circumstances when the understanding of his true nature as the Son of God can be applied.
Our understanding of the Son of Man and the Son of God, and the difference, might be heightened by realizing that the Christ comes to the Son of Man. The Christ doesn’t come to the Son of God because the Christ really presents the Son of God.
We’re on the human side of things, who fell the foot of domination on our necks from outside circumstances. Is that where the Son of Man belongs? Notice the argument of Bildad in the book of Job… It uses the very same phrase that Jesus does, elevating him way above the outlines of fleshly domination. So, “The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do.” Why?
John 5:20, “The Father loves the Son.”
John 5:30. The same point is repeated, “I can of mine own self do nothing.” Is this false humility or is Jesus actually giving us the facts straight out? What is the secret and source of everything he thought or did? What is the obstacle then between us and following Jesus? There’s something in there. Some kind of different concept of our selfhood than what he had. His was so transparent that there was nothing obstructing his at-one-ment with God, even on earth. His summons to us is to follow his example and shows his own expectation that we’re equipped to do it. So, we’re equipped to receive and to act on the instructions given us via communication. All we need to do is tune in.
We’re coming to understand Jesus’ view of himself, and where he thinks this authority originates, “The Son of Man can do nothing of himself.” (John 5:19)]

John, the Beloved Disciple” by B. Cobbey Crisler

[W’s PS#2— Cobbey Crisler insights on “Be still and know...” in Psalm 46.10 (RR).
One of the simplest prescriptions for the human mind to take and one of the most difficult. The human mind resists to the hilt taking this one. “Be still and know that I [am] God.” The racket of thought quieted. It’s a very strong word, “Be still.” Jesus used those words to calm violence in nature [Mark 4:39], and also to cast out an unclean spirit [Mark 1:25]. It doesn’t belong in nature or human nature. Certainly it’s not part of the divine nature. So, “Be still” is [a] very emphatic verbal rebuke.”

Leaves of the Tree: Prescriptions from Psalms”, by B. Cobbey Crisler

[W’s PS#3—Cobbey insight that “death as a termination is virtually eliminated” in Peter’s 1st public lecture in Acts 2 (B3) as grounded in David’s resurrection prophesy in Psalm 16:
PREQUEL (Acts 2:14, 15):
“Peter has to open his first public lecture telling everybody he isn’t drunk.” (Acts 2:14-15 Paraphrased) Too sad, but that’s where thought was. …
But what is Peter’s method? He goes where? To the scripture….
…he went through all these things according to prophesy… Here are some of the specifics.

Acts 2:25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

Now, I ask you to study the next 10 verses and see how beautiful the logic of Peter is in this first lecture sponsored by the first Christian church.

Acts 2:26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

Acts 2:27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

Acts 2:28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

Acts 2:29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

Acts 2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

Acts 2:31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

Acts 2:32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

Acts 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

Acts 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

Acts 2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

“David…” you see in Acts 2, Verse 25? “David speaketh concerning him.” Who is the “him”? Jesus. (See below, verse repeated for convenience)

Acts 2:25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

Now, remember this is Peter talking, and it was Peter, not too long ago, who had said none of this was going to happen to Jesus, right? So, he hadn’t even seen these Biblical passages himself. He was the one that said, “I go a-fishing.”

John 21:3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a-fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.

He didn’t have time for anything else, even searching the scriptures – at that time. But, now, look. What happened in that 40-day period? And now, 50-day period? Something brought Peter back to the scriptures. And, it’s the Gospel of Luke that suggests who did it; who was it? Jesus, himself – that took his disciples on that walk through scriptural prophecy.

Now, look what kind of students they become, these fishermen. They say, “David speaketh concerning him….” That means…where will we find it? In the Psalms. (See below, Repeated here for convenience)

Acts 2:25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

And the next quote is from Psalms 16, Verses 8-11. You might want to just write that in the margin of your book; it’s taken from the Sixteenth Psalm, saying, “I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand that I should not be moved.” (Ps 16:8)

Ps 16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

Ps 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

Ps 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Now, read verse 27 (in Acts 2) “Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.” (See Ps 16:10 below)

Ps 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

… This suggests the resurrection. As a matter of fact, this is the prime verse used by New Testament authors, as a prediction of the resurrection.

Let me read to you what Dr. John Trevor told me in our discussion of this verse, that he prefers as meaning for some of those Hebrew words behind the Psalms passage.

The word “soul” …in Ps 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

He said to me that this is really a Hebrew word that means “all of your being.”

And I suggested to him, “How about the word “identity”? And he said that in 20thcentury terms, that would be quite close.

Reading the meaning there. “Thou wilt not leave my identity in hell.” (Ps 16:10, Paraphrased)

All right? “Hell,” he says, is really not that concept that’s more medieval, but it’s the pit and corruption, and more the grave – pit, or corruption, or more the grave, he says.

So, let’s read that again, conceptually. “Thy wilt not leave my identity in the grave.” (Ps 16:10, further Paraphrased)

Now, let’s ask ourselves, “Does that speak to resurrection, or not?” It’s a very vivid indication of it.

And, finally, “Neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.”

(See below, last half of same verse)

He said, “Holy One” in the Hebrew there, means more dedicated, or totally committed one…

Now, that becomes quite a beautiful sense of resurrection coming from the Psalms, which if David wrote it, as Peter seems to feel here, it would have been a thousand years before Jesus.

“Thou wilt not leave my identity in the grave, and you will not suffer thy dedicated, or totally committed one to see corruption.” (Ps 16:10, further paraphrased)…

There’s the combined statement of the individuality of man free from the bondage of death.
And the concept of death as a termination is virtually eliminated.”
“After the Master What? – The Book of Acts” by B. Cobbey Crisler

W’s PS#4: Cobbey Crisler insight on Psalm 42:11and hope in God as the cure for depression:
Psalm 42, Verse 11 is a refrain in this psalm and the next. It’s a question we all need to ask ourselves, "Why art thou cast down?” Depression, if not an economic fact, seems to be a mental one at present. "Why art thou cast down? Examine the reasons. "Why art thou disquieted within me?" That's getting mad in a sense. That's challenging what we are accepting without question. Why am I depressed? Why is this disquiet? What's the reason for it? Then notice the remedy. "Hope thou in God: praise God, hope in God. The health of our countenance is in God."
“Leaves of the Tree: Prescriptions from Psalms” by B. Cobbey Crisler

W’s PS#5: Cobbey Crisler insight on I Kings 12 and Elijah’s historic overcoming of a boy’s death:
I Kings 12:1, 8-24 In these verses we have Elijah’s pioneering example of raising someone else from the dead—namely the son of the widow woman in Zarephath who God commanded to sustain him during the drought.
I Kings 17: 16 “And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah.”
I Kings 17: 17 “And it came to pass after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore that there was no breath left in him.

I Kings 17: 18 “And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? Art thou come to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son?”
These are loaded phrases—the test for adultery in Numbers. Do you think that this son was the result of an adulterous union? Elijah breaks away from this question of guilt, hurt and deprived materialism.

I Kings 17: 19 “And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of his bosom, and carried him up into a loft (symbol of inspired thought) where he abode, and laid him on his own bed.”

Let’s dig for some insights into how people think while doing such healing work—the way the how of healing becomes evident. The accounting of the methods used in a textbook wouldn’t be very helpful, if applying the same methods today didn’t deliver the same results. Math equations work the same today as centuries ago. Note that if it was the oppressive thought of another, here the mother, that needed to be overcome, it was important to remove the case from that atmosphere. How about what Jesus did with Jairus’ daughter? Note also how different this mother was in clinging to her last connective link with her child versus the woman whose son Elisha healed in II Kings 4.
II Kings 4: 21 And she (the mother of her son who just died) went up, and laid him on the bed of the man of God and shut the door upon him.” She then doesn’t let her husband know what happened, but asks for transportation—to borrow the keys to the car (“one of the … asses, that I may run to the man of God and come again.” She then states “It shall be well.” (verses 23) and “It is well” (Verse 26), both Shalom in Hebrew. (We sing of this in Hymn 350.)

Back to Elijah’s raising of this woman’s son in I Kings 17:20 “And he cried unto the Lord and said, O Lord my God” (like Jesus saying Our Father in order to break the biological link and maternal hold)… “hast thou brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son?” The answer must be NO because Elijah was able to change the evidence.

I Kings 17:21 “And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the Lord, O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul (identity) come into him again.” The Message Bible paraphrases this “He prayed with all his heart.”)

I Kings 17:22 “And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul (identity) of the child came into him again and he revived.”
I Kings 17:23 “ And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into teh house and delivered him to his mother: and Elijah said, See thy son liveth.” (Note the similar word by Jesus, but with less human and more God in Jesus’ time.)
I Kings 17:24 “And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know thou art o man of God, and that the word of the Lord in thy mouth is truth.” This is a breakthrough in human history to require proof of religion. Healing is a credential of a man of God.”
(From notes in the margin of Warren’s Bible from a talk entitled
"Heal the Sick: A Scriptural Record” by B. Cobbey Crisler)

W’s PS#6: Shared by Ruth Huff were these divine definitions springing from the 23rd Psalm. Warren proposes these to be our divine “Psalm 23 and ME” heritage (See PDF Download in upper right.)

W’s PS#7: Cobbey Crisler insight on II Kings 2 and Elisha’s witnessing Elijah’s ascension:
(Verse 2) “… And Elisha said unto him, As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee.” (Similar to what the woman who’s child he healed said to him, and what the disciples should have said to Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. As a result Elisha witnessed Elijah’s ascension—and received his mantle and heritage of healing power!
(Transcribed from notes in the margin of Warren’s Bible from a talk entitled “Heal the Sick: A Scriptural Record” by B. Cobbey Crisler)


[W’s PS#8—Cobbey Crisler on John 17: 1-4 (B14): Jesus’ prayer for himself having finished
In Chapter 17 of John's gospel, Jesus is praying audibly. If we've ever wanted to be present when Jesus is praying, it would be during this very moving prayer indeed. It's divided into three sections. To whom does the prayer, represented in the first five verses, refer? Himself. It's a prayer for himself Jesus did take time out for himself. This is just before Gethsemane. So you know what's in his thoughts.

John 17:1. It's in this prayer he says, “These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee.”

John 17:2, "As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. "

John 17:3, "This is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."

John 17:4. Imagine being able to say at the end of an earthly career, ''I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do." It would be wonderful if we could say that in any given day. But this is an entire career.”
“Book of John, A Walk with the Beloved Disciple,” by B. Cobbey Crisler

W’s PS#9Cobbey on Peter’s lecture about the prophesied Messiah in Acts 2:22-24 (B15)
“Now, in Acts 2, verse 22, Peter begins his lecture in earnest, and his sermon includes a definite documentation that “Jesus is the Messiah of scripture” and not just the Messiah who is the king and political leader but “the one who would be forced to meet every obstacle the world put in his path and overcome every one of them, certainly a way-shower to whom all humanity could relate.” (See below, Paraphrased)

Acts 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

Here he says in Acts 2, Verse 23 that “Jesus was delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God.” Now, that’s just another way of saying what? Where do you find the “determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God”? (See below) In the scriptures, specifically – prophecy.

Acts 2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:”
“After the Master What? – The Book of Acts” by B. Cobbey Crisler

[W’s PS#10—Cobbey Crisler on Acts 1:1, 2 (B16)
“I’m sure you realize the Book of Acts is a second volume of a two-volume work, the first volume being, Luke, right! And the reason we know that: What’s verse one in the book of Acts tell us?

It starts out with…really giving us that information, doesn’t it? It says
Acts 1:1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

Now, why in that brief group of words do we have clues about the Gospel of Luke and similar authorship? Do you know?

Well, the Gospel of Luke, if you check the opening verses there, you will find that that Gospel is addressed to “Theophilus” as well. (See below)

Luke 1:3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,

Luke 1:4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.

And here, we’re told in the opening verse of Chapter One of Acts, “The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus….” (See Acts1:1 above)

So, it doesn’t take too much more than common sense to at least link the books in terms of the one to whom it was written and in terms of the author….

Now, Theophilus – who is he? No one knows, but translated from the Greek it means what? Do any of you know? What’s “Theo” like in theology, God and Logos. All right, it’s…well, not Logos, that was theology, but Theo-PHILUS, Philus meaning, like Philadelphia, love. So, God-loving, literally, which has again caused some to think that it might not be addressed to an individual named Theophilus; it could be to us if we qualify in that definition, collectively.

“O All those who are God-loving.” (See below, Paraphrased) Again that is conjecture, but something worth considering.

We know that the first treatise that Luke wrote had to do with – what does the first verse tell us? (Indistinct answer from audience) Right. What “Jesus began both to do and teach.” (See below, Partial)

Acts 1:1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

So, it really, it sounds like it was a gospel such as we have. And the progress of the gospel, narrative wise, would take us, according to Verse 2, “until the day in which he was taken up after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen.” …

“After the Master What? – The Book of Acts” by B. Cobbey Crisler

PS#11—To see the evolution of the Fifth Tenet (about the crucifixion & resurrection) click on the history of all the tenets as a download in the upper right corner of this webpage.

PS#12—Cobbey on Acts 14.2-7, 8-10, 11-47 and the prophesy fulfilled of a leaping lame man
Acts, Chapter 14
begins with [the prequel of] “the unbelieving Jews” in Acts 14, verse 2, “stirring up the Gentiles.” … And we find now that this is close on the heels of all the success the church makes – a step forward and then a counter step trying to resist and destroy what has been achieved. Church has never been probably such pressure up to this moment since the general persecution in Jerusalem… So, the “stirring up occurs.” Acts 14, verse 4, shows you a “division in the city, an actual assault is made” in Acts 14, verse 5, “to stone them.”

“And they leave the city going to Lystra and Derbe, and to the surrounding region to preach the gospel.” (Acts 14:6, 7) …

In the midst of all this persecution and conflict, “there is a man at Lytra, a cripple, and born that way. He never had walked.”

Acts 14:9 The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,

Now you remember what we said when Jesus looked at someone? “And Peter beheld someone.” … Here it says, “Paul, stedfastly beholding him.” The author means much more that staring at him, doesn’t he? “Stedfastly beholding him, perceiving” – you see it’s an inner sight – “perceiving he had faith to be healed.” (Acts 14:9)

Now, if he hadn’t [perceived that he had faith], the implication is what? They were many that needed healing there, but receptivity – the patient has to be part of it apparently. Just as Jesus did not physically lift people to their feet so much as he said, “Pick up your bed and walk…stretch forth your hand” and so forth here.

Paul, perceiving that he had faith to be healed “Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked. (Acts 14:10)

You notice that the first thing this man does also is what? He leaps before he walks. He never had walked, and “the first thing he did was leap.” …
And Isaiah, if you will recall the prophecy, it indicated “the lame man shall leap as an hart.” (Isa 35:6) … It is a fulfillment of prophecy. Therefore, it’s God’s idea, you see, not man’s healing.”

[Chapter 14 ends with the exciting sequel of Paul being worshipped and then being stoned and raised by prayer and returning to where he was stoned….] … That shows you the extremes of human nature. You’re a god one moment, and they stone you the next. And that’s exactly what happened to Jesus if you recall the triumphant entry into Jerusalem – and one week later. So avoid triumphal entries if you can at all help it.

So, “Paul is stoned.” (Acts 14:19) … Now, remember later in a list of the things that he gives that he’s been through; he says he was stoned once, and this is the only record that we have of it. “They drag him out insensible, looking as if he is dead.” (Acts 14:19)

“The disciples, instead of running, stand around about him.” (Acts 14:20) “Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up, and came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.”

Now, I don’t know whether anybody in this room would have had the courage Paul did. Even if we rose up from the dead, would you have run back into the city? Didn’t you get the idea that you weren’t wanted?

“He comes back into the city. He would not be thrown out. He then leaves with Barnabas the next day,” normally, “to Derbe to preach there.” (Acts 14:20)

Acts 14:21 And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch

And Acts 14, verse 22, the last three lines, he indicates that “we must through great tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.”

… But he’s establishing churches as he goes. And think of the influence of his example in stamping the example to follow Christ in that early church. So, as he creates churches as he goes along, he comes back through. He retraces his steps and returns to Antioch in Syria, not the Antioch of Pisidia. He’s back home again

Acts 14:26 And thence sailed to Antioch, from whence they had been recommended to the grace of God for the work which they fulfilled.

If you want to know how the church responded to the results of this first mission; they hold a special corporate meeting and “rehearsed” in Acts 14, verse 27, “all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.” Look at that news, “the door of faith has been opened to the Gentiles.” …

That says something about the corporate body, especially if the New Testament remark “that the church is the body of Christ is correct. You can’t divide that body. If you try, you’re trying to break the body of Christ in that sense. This was tried on the cross.

And collectively man is at one under one God if the Biblical theme is accurate. And that must include the Gentiles; it must even include those we may count among our enemies. And Paul’s approach here is a pioneering one.”

PS#13—Cobbey insight on II Peter 1:3 (B23) and our divine nature in which we can trace our ancestry back to God and escape a longing for what’s forbidden:
“II Peter 1:3 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye may be partakers (literally “sharers”) of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (a longing for what is forbidden).” As we literally trace our ancestry and nature back to God and our divine nature, on teh way we are healed.”
