Doing Nothing From Myself But From The Spirit
John 7:17 If any man will do his will (If any one out of His own will desires to do God’s will) he shall know of the doctrine( Instrumental: teaching), whether it be of God, or whether I speak of ( from the edge of; the idea of separation or departure from) myself.( exclusively and independently from myself as a source and from none other.)
Jesus never did or spoke anything, which originated from Himself. Everything He did, originated from the Father, and was revealed to Jesus through the Holy Spirit.
Secondly, Jesus never did anything that was exclusively His ideas, agenda or timetable.
Everything, which he planned and carried out, was inclusive of what the Father desired.
Finally every action, which He took, and every word, which He spoke, was in dependency to the workings of the Holy Spirit within Him. The Lord Jesus never acted independently from the Father.
This was the key to the Lord’s supernatural faith and miracle working power. The fact that while on the earth, the Lord lived dependent, inclusive, and originated everything with the Father, shows us the depth of Jesus life in the world of the Holy Spirit.
This is what Jesus means when he tells us that He does nothing from Himself.
To the degree that we do not seek ourselves as the ones from whom anything originates, and then carry it out independently and exclusively from God, will automatically live in the teaching of the Father.
18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
They that speak independently, selfishly, and exclusive, of the Spirit of God, seeks their own glory; (but they which from the world of the Spirit, allowing for the Spirit to permeate and work back through them, will be seeking the glory of God, and will speak ecstatically, prophetically, and under divine impulse, as oracles of God that will bring forth His glory.)
John 8;28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he ( I am),and that I do nothing of myself (and that I do nothing independently and exclusively from the Father); but as my Father hath taught me( but as the Father has instrumentally penetrated, affected, and influenced me) I speak these things (these things I utter, express, and speak prophetically, by that divine influence which has permeated me.)
John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself ( LOCATION: (Jesus is located within, or submerged into the Father) I absolutely have not uttered anything independently and exclusively from the Father); but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment (The instrumentality of the Father working back through Jesus), what I should say, and what I should speak. (So permeated Him the Father as to give Him both the utterances and expressions of speech, and the contents of them)
John 6:28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God (The Father works His works back through the disciples, as He affects and influences them in proportion to how much he or she submerges into the world of the Spirit.), that ye believe on him (Greek “INTO”; location, domain, submerging into) whom he hath sent.
