John chapter 3-5 bible study


“All were baptized into Stewart Traill. In every sense of the word: his teaching, his concepts, his view on life, his skepticism of other Christians. Go and learn what this means”.

Blessed is he and blessed is she who is able to get free from the grip of Stewart Traill and the Church of Bible Understanding, and those who are able to overcome his lies and curses will have a great reward.

John Chapter 3-5 Bible Study

On March 3rd, 2011 - Dave and Cynthia

Joh 2:4 And Jesus said to her, "O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come."


For indeed I say unto you, this was Jesus speaking to the church, a woman: 'What have you to do with me, that you are asking of me, to take water and make it wine?' For I tell you: the water that springs up, forth, within you, the Living Water, produces joy and hope and it had not been my time to produce joy and hope, when I had not even given water.

'Woman, what have you to do with me?' 'Must you ask of me, before I even bring forth the water of life, the baptism of the Spirit?'

For he who has the water within himself, has the ability to also have wine.

He who is filled with the water of life, the water of hope, the water of peace, is it not like wine?

Does it not produce the hope and the joy, that having a little wine brings forth?

So, the Lord Jesus is saying, 'Why are you asking me to give forth, before the time?

Why are you asking me to put the cart before the horse?

But I did it anyway. For it is in me to give, as it is in you to give, as you have given, as you do give, as you have no thought of giving; but I say unto you, this is why I said, 'Woman, what have you to do with me?'

Jn 2:11 This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed in him.


And what is his glory?

Is not his glory his generous spirit?

This is his glory my children, and this my children is why he (brother) calls you: Ichabod ~ HA!

Because my son, you were a generous spirit to his family, and the glory has gone out for them.

Indeed you have become Ichabod to them, but they do not recognize how it is they, who cast you out.

It is they who refused to receive you.

And you shall tell him this.

You call me Ichabod and to you so I am, for indeed, I was a generous spirit to you and you took great pleasure in the extension that I afforded you, extending to you blessing upon blessing.

Countless times I came to your home when you were in various places of unrest, and yet I brought peace to your home, so yes, it was as though the glory of the Lord came to your house when I visited, and yes, the glory is gone for you.

For you have thrown me out, but I say unto you my brother, my former friend, for you have not been a friend to me, as you hurl mud upon me!

I who listened to every word you ever spoke.

I who lifted you up when you were down.

I who listened to your wife when she was down.

I who poured oil upon your heads.

I who sought to lift you up!

Call me Ichabod, if you must!

Call me Ichabod, if you desire!

But I say unto you, 'The Lord's glory has not left me, but perhaps it has left you.

Jn 3:11 Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen; but you do not receive our testimony.


And I am saying unto you my children, we speak of what we know, and the reason why what we speak finds no home in them is because they do not know.

Indeed, their eyes have been darkened and their hearts have grown weary, they cannot eat solid food.

And you will tell (your brother), his thoughts about The Church of Bible Understanding needing baby oil because they are still infants, can partly be correct.

But they are worse than infants for I say to you, infants still have the hope of being cared for, and they cry because they have the expectation of comfort.

Those from The Church of Untended Hearts, the church that called itself, 'Understanding of the Bible' they are like those who are the poor; and not just the regular poor, I am speaking of those that they show you on the television set, in order to collect funds, the ones with extended bellies and sad hearts and eyes, those who no longer even try to cry, for why should they:

when no one can comfort them...

no one can feed them...

no one can take away the pain that they have been embracing year after year, day after day, month after month.
This is why (your sister) says:

'There is no relief for me'

'I've tried it all'

'Let me be alone and be bitter'

And do not tell me you have some water for my thirsty soul.'

'There is no water in any cup.'

'I've tried it and I've spewed it out.'

'It found no home in me.'

'I have been bereft of peace.'

'It has been robbed from my heart...'

'and from my soul and from my mind...'

'So that I am a bitter, bitter woman...

'Who wants to be left alone.'

'Why else would I put out my prickles?'

'I am not encouraging friendship.'

'I am saying: 'I have nothing in me to give you and you are stupid to be so generous!'

'Why were you so generous to those who turned their back on you?'

'Oh, that was stupid.'

'You would be much happier to be like my husband, who takes walks in the winter wonderland.'

But I say to you my sister, my daughter, my son, my brother, know this, he who gives to those who cannot repay him is like the Father himself, who gives generously without reproaching. [Jas 1:5]

For I say to you, when they look upon your hopeful face, knowing all the things that have been thrown upon you, they have to wonder.

You are a witness.

You are a bright and shinning light in a dark place, make no mistake, they know it.


And when you go in their presence, they know IT!

Jn 3:19 And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.


And this is the judgment, this is why they do not desire your presence, you are the judgment!

The light has come into the darkness and the DARKNESS HAS NOT OVERCOME IT!

With all their foul words: YOU are still standing!

I'm still standing! That's what you say when you walk in their midst.

You are saying: You have NOT crippled me!

Though you desire to cripple me, you have not crippled me!

I'm still standing!

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.

Know then the Lord your God is the light!

He who receives the light ~ BECOMES LIGHT!

You are testifying to the fact that they know not the light!

They who desire to witness, must receive the light, to have light within and shine light without; would that they knew the light!

Your brother said in his attitude: 'I never knew the brightness, till I met you Dave.' Ha! You need speak no word, you need only attend.

Jn 3:29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom's voice; therefore this joy of mine is now full.


And isn't it glorious, and isn't it wonderful. And wasn't it glorious my son? And wasn't it wonderful, my son, when you were a bridegroom? And when you had the expectation of your bride? (Dave: Yes indeed!)

When you had struggled for her for years and it was finally about to be awarded to you, the best thing, to embrace she whom you labored for, she who you desired!

For a bridegroom is full of hope and expectation, for he has the bride!

And this was robbed from them, for they could never understand this joy in its true meaning.

Yes, some married, but many married in shame and without the support and joy of their brethren: the people that they thought were their brethren.

So, I say to you, 'How can they who were brought forth in this despicable place:

That forbid the teaching of the connection between the Lord Jesus Christ and his church?

The group that you came from:

Forbid, that which expresses and explains my love for my people!

They were forbidden that.

So, indeed, their entire foundation was accursed!

For they did what the scripture said not to do:

Do not forbid marriage! (1 Ti 4 1-3)

Why is it in the Word?

Because it was foreseen that unscrupulous ones, such as these would do this very thing!

Forbid men and women from coming to know one another!?

Forbid men and women from enjoying the blessings of becoming one!

For mud was thrown on it!

For curses were thrown on it!

For the elders of the group sent women to Haiti..

..rather than have them have a relationship with a young man!

These women became old ladies!

Who could not bear sons and daughters of their own!

So they were twice deprived!

Not only were they deprived of knowing the joy of someone caring for them...

The joy of someone taking them to the marriage feast...

In some cultures weddings go on for a month!

The bride and the groom are escorted from house to house and are given foods and things and gifts and money:

Not so in The Church of Cold Hearts!

Not so in The Church of Corruptness!

Not so in The Church of Bible Misunderstanding!

For they have Misunderstood a great many things!

And this is why your sister was wrong when she said there was no curse.

And do not fear to tell her: (Sisters name), did you not say to us that if you did not leave you would have gone mad?

How is it that when we prayed with you and we read from the prayer the Lord gave us, you turned around and said that Jesus told you there were no curses!

You are greatly mistaken, for there are a great many curses and you escaped by the skin of your teeth!

You were barely able to run and get a taxi cab, for fear that they would find you!

No curses?! Examine, then why you claimed you would have gone mad, had you stayed!

Jn 3:29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom's voice; therefore this joy of mine is now full.


And I am saying to you, the bridegroom is he who HAS the bride.

I am saying to you, that The Church of Untended, Cold Hearts was not like the Lord Jesus, nor were they like the bride!

For the Lord Jesus is not coming for a dried up prune!

How would you like to have to marry a dried up prune!

Well, isn't that what Stewart Traill tried to turn all the sisters into?!

Didn't he make them miserable?!

Didn't he make them miserable?!

So that they were no longer desirable?

For they had no pleasure in anything!

And if they did find pleasure in something, he robbed them of it and sent them as far from one another as he could!

Jn 3:33 he who receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true.


So, it is saying my children, 'He who receives the testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ, sets his seal to this: that God is true!

That God has done what he has promised!

That he has shown his steadfast love in his great gift and generosity:

For who would give up their only, first born, son?

Who would offer, his only, the joy of his heart: his only first born son?!

Who would offer that!? (Dave: I don't think anybody would.)

Who would give up the joy of their heart!?

Who would give up the joy of their mind and their soul, the offspring of their body!

This is the ultimate gift.

The Lord God is a generous God!

and those who are selfish...

and those who are grasping...

and those who are coveting...

and those who are greedy...

and those who are leechlike...

they are not godly!

they are NOT: God-ly!

And this is what you testify against them:

that they are: not like God!

They are grasping and coveting oppressors: like he who they follow after (Stewart Traill) ~ you did not so learn Christ, if indeed you are born of him!

(Eph 4:20,21)(Below is a portion of Eph Chapter 4 as a reference.)

Eph 4:17 Now this I affirm and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds;

Eph 4:18 they are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart;

Eph 4:19 they have become callous and have given themselves up to licentiousness, greedy to practice every kind of uncleanness.

Eph 4:20 You did not so learn Christ!--

Eph 4:21 assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus.

Eph 4:22 Put off your old nature which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful lusts,

Eph 4:23 and be renewed in the spirit of your minds,

Eph 4:24 and put on the new nature, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Eph 4:25 Therefore, putting away falsehood, let every one speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.

Eph 4:26 Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,

Eph 4:27 and give no opportunity to the devil.

Eph 4:28 Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his hands, so that he may be able to give to those in need.

Eph 4:29 Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for edifying, as fits the occasion, that it may impart grace to those who hear.

Eph 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

Eph 4:31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, with all malice,

Eph 4:32 and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Jn 3:33 he who receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true.


He who is born of him sets his seal to the truth, that Jesus is like his Father and gave what his father asked of him.

And the sad thing is, my children, everyone has a witness, you witness everyday.

And when (the brother) called your wife "rude" he was really saying: "I am rude" for like answers to like.

Your wife was not rude, she was in pain and she said, "Well, I hope he has a good week end."

She was expressing that she knew she would be in distress, while he was in comfort, this was not rude, it was a statement of truth, a statement of fact.

Yet this brother is constantly rude and without a thought as to how his rudeness is vile, for he wipes his hand and face and says, 'I have done no wrong'.(Pro 30:20)

Do not fear.


And when she read it my children, she sought comfort from her friends, but there was no comfort. The ones on the list that she emails privately, and calls, whining about your email, that she wished she hadn't seen, wished that you hadn't written it.

They take no pleasure in it, the Word of the Lord, for them, is a reproach.(Jer 20:8)

For the pain goes on and it goes on, and they all deal with it in different ways.

It haunts them in their sleep.

It haunts them in their dreams.

And when they wake up, behold, it is still with them.

They are in constant torment.

Joh 5:3 In these lay a multitude of invalids, blind, lame, paralyzed.


And I say, they were better off than these!

And WHY are they better off than these?!

For they admitted to their blindness!

They admitted to their lameness!

They admitted to their neediness!

As this brother has done, he admitted my son that he had need:

"I need the Oil, come and bring it to me fast!"

And you went forth and you gave it to him, and he is a better man today for it.

And if he is wise, he is wise for himself! (Job 22:2)

And if he does Step 1 and Step 2, it will bless him greatly, more than he realizes.

For he spends many hours, listening to many voices: of many churches and this counsel and that counsel, and this and that, and it's just puffed up, it does not build up.(1 Co 8:1)

Focus on what brings for peace, not for what is controversy, for COBU was constantly at war

constantly saying,

'Go out and debate with the unsaved'

'Go out and bring in more!

They said, 'Souls for the Lord'

But they meant 'Money for our coffers'

But I will say to you this: That the end of the fellowship, they couldn't even get the homeless to come!

So what had it become?

If there is no food there, why would the homeless go?

The homeless, at least they could go to a soup kitchen and get a descent meal and they don't have to have their arms twisted for it.

A normal reporter went (to COBU) thinking she would be able to go in and come out and all would be well and she ended up with migraines and vomiting.
(Referring to the writer of the article about COBU in "The Philadelphia Magazine".)

What does that say about The Church of Untended and Hard Hearts?

They had no bread!

They had no wine!

They had no oil!

They had no peace!

They had no grace!

They had no comfort!

They had no blessing!

They had no hope!

They had no strength!

They had no kindness!

And where these things are not!

There is not the Lord!

For these are the Lord!

This is the testimony of the Lord: hope, peace, kindness, love, strength, blessing, a sound spirit, a gentle heart!

There is no gentleness when greed is the objective.

So, in a sense, that brother and sister have been faithful to what their youth taught them, 'Get me if you can'

But I say unto you my children, 'Fear not, little flock, for it is your fathers good pleasure to GIVE YOU the kingdom.

Give it to you!

Pressed down...

Shaken together...

Poured into your lap!

Will be given to you!

Given to you!

Given to you!

GIVEN to YOU, FREE of charge!

Joh 5:3 In these lay a multitude of invalids, blind, lame, paralyzed.


And I am saying unto you, that those who were: blind, lame, and paralyzed, at least they were able to accept it ~ not only accept it, but knew WHERE TO GO TO GET HELP out of their condition!

So I am saying, they are better off than these, to whom I send you to, because those to whom I send you to, do not even admit that they are blind!

'We see, you are blind!', they say!

'We are not lame'

Yet, a brother who has numerous amounts of physical disabilities and you offer him 'The Blessing of the Oil' and he turns up his nose!

I am saying: 'They are worse off than those who went to the water when it was troubled, for they knew, some could get healing there!

If the circumstances are right, if I get in there, I can get me a blessing, that's why I'm here!

How many years did he lay there?

Year upon year upon year upon year upon Year!

He was looking for a blessing, and he got it!

For he who seeks, finds!

He who knocks, it is opened! (Mt 7:8, Lk 11:10)

It might not be opened right away, but eventually, maybe your blessing may come, so I say: "Reach for it" but above all:

Have truth, for there is no healing without it.

How can one be healed if he does not admit that he was 'full of demons'?

And that by the grace of God they were taken out!

So that a sound mind could come forth!

At least be honest about the truth, so that your testimony can have the power that it was deemed to have.

I know what I did, I let evil in.

I needed help getting it out.

I couldn't get it out.

It was crippling me.

It crippled my body.

It made me unable.

It made me disabled.

It is not an issue of deliverance.

It is an issue of salvation, utter salvation!

I am saying it is not an issue of words, it is not an issue, my children, of oppression or possession, this is words – words!

Has deliverance gone forth?

Why would someone need deliverance, if one wasn't overcome?

If one was in power of himself, but was just annoyed by demons…

If the spirit of God in you, is not strong enough to keep that which has no place with the spirit of God, then the spirit of God wasn't there!

For indeed the demons can keep you in darkness even if you are reading the Bible and thinking you are doing right things!

I am saying to you, if you have been released, then praise God and do not be ashamed of the release!

Do not be ashamed of your healing!

If healing happened, rejoice!

Do not let the enemy cloud your mind into worry over what had happened.

For I will say unto you this, does the person who couldn't walk and who was lame for 38 years hoping for a miracle and finally receives it, get into a debate about whether or not he was lame?!

'Well, I wasn't really lame, but I, I was just laying near the pond for 38 years because, I knew I could have walked, if someone lifted me up a little…

I mean, it's ludicrous, if you're lame and God heals you, you can't get up and rejoice and say, 'I was lame and now I'm walking?!'

I mean, if you have an exorcism, if they're actually saying their names and they're speaking from out of your own mouth, do you deny that they were living in there?!

Were they there or weren't they?!

I mean, really, this is like someone who takes a bath, and he looks into the tub and the water is black and he says, 'That's not my bath water!?

Well, didn't you get in there?!

That's somebody else's bath water!?

'Ok, the dirt was on me, but it might not have been IN ME', What is that?!

But I'm saying, 'If they had their own names and they're talking out of your mouth: possession or oppression, what do you think?'

But the truth is: "Has relief come?"

And if it has:

'Can you say it?'

'Can you say it?'

'Can you say it?'

Say it then:

"The Lord God has released me!"

"From whatever was oppressing me!"

"From whatever was depressing me!"

"From whatever was oppressing me and HAD NAMES!

"From whatever was inside of me!

Hallelujah! Amen?!

Was it was your bathwater?! So what!

Pull the plug and let it out!

And if it has come out...

Rejoice that it has come out!

For did you not say, "I was praying for a deliverance ministry?"

If one is not in need of deliverance, why ask for it?

Seek and you shall find!

Knock and it shall be opened!

The Lord said, 'I give you your deliverance!'

And you're still wondering: 'Was I oppressed or was I infiltrated?'

It's not a matter of that my children, it's a matter of:

Have you been released?

Have you come to some peace?

Has the peace of the Almighty God said, "Helloooo is anybody home?

The Lord Jesus Christ does not sit down and eat with demonnnnnnnns!!

(That was after reading John 5:3 in these lay a multitude of invalids, blind, lame, paralyzed)

Jn 5:7 The sick man answered him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is troubled, and while I am going another steps down before me." Jn 5:8 Jesus said to him, "Rise, take up your pallet, and walk.".


For indeed, sickness makes one stagnant.

It makes one have trouble moving, when one is sick.

And I am saying,

If the Lord Jesus Christ has removed illness and sickness from you...

..has taken away, that which made you sick..

I am saying, 'Rise up, take up your pallet and walk!'(Mk 2:9-12,Jn 5:8-12)

Even if it is from your couch to your bathroom,

or your couch to your kitchen,

or your couch to your bathroom,

Rise up, take up your pallet and walk!

Maybe today you can do one lap from your couch to your bathroom to your kitchen to your couch!

Maybe tomorrow you can do two!

But I am saying:

'He who continues to lay down, when sickness has been withdrawn, do not let yourself become ill again!

Rise up, in your heart, in your mind, in your soul and do not suck which kept you in that place.

For all the cruising (online) that you did,

brought you no comfort,

brought you no peace,

gave you no deliverance,

it just gave you something to argue about.

And indeed, if it was so wonderful, than why was it that the demons didn't mind it?

For as long as you are content to stay stuck, you will be stuck.

And they don't mind you being stuck.

But they certainly didn't like it when light walked into their room.

And indeed, it was not very long after light came in, that they had to leave? Capisce?
(That was after reading John 5:7).

Jn 5:12 They asked him, "Who is the man who said to you, 'Take up your pallet, and walk'?".


For indeed, you will find, that whenever healing goes forth, there are those who will say:

'It's not allowed!

We don't allow that!"

And who would say that?

But the enemy of hope!

The enemy of peace!

The enemy of light!

The enemy of truth!
The enemy of all good things!

That come from the Holy Spirit of God Almighty!

God ALL Mighty!

Mighty is God!

Mighty over All!

God, Mighty over All!

That's who is speaking: MIGHTY OVER ALL! MIGHTY OVER ALL!

Is God mighty over all of you?

Hopefully he is!

Jn 5:28 Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice.


If the dead will hear his voice, only the living have ears, these are those who are dead in spirit, and yet their ears will be open to hear his voice.

Joh 5:38 and you do not have his word abiding in you, for you do not believe him whom he has sent.


And these are those who profess to know great teachings, these are those who profess to know the truth, and he said to them, 'You have not the word of God what?


What does it mean to have something abiding in you?

That means, it's something that is part of you.

For I say to you, there is a big difference between those who have many words and spout them and go nowhere..

..and those who know the truth and have it abiding in them.

Abide in me and I will abide in you.

Be part of me and I will be part of you.

This teaching is something that The Church of Cold, Untended Hearts, could not receive, why? because they forbid marriage.

They forbid the joining of one soul to another.

So, if they are retarded in physical relationships, then they are retarded in the spiritual relationship also.

How can they understand the spiritual if they cannot understand the physical?

How can they understand the physical if it is forbidden from them?

Those who forbid marriage, also forbid prophesy.

The whole spirit of, 'I don't allow this'

When the spirit of the Lord is yes!(2 Co 1:19)

In him is always 'Yes'.

YES, you can have a relationship!

YES, you can have a wife!

YES, then you will understand me better!

YES, then you will have love for one another!

YES, then you will want to have children!

YES, then your children will want to be like you, because you'll be happy!

Why do your children not want to be like you?

Because you are MIS~ER~ABLE!

And they don't want to be Mi~ser~able!

Keep sucking on that old cherry; see if it gets you anywhere, living as a prune.

Prunes are sometimes juicy, but then there's the ones that are dried up and I am saying:

That The Church of Untended Hearts was a dried up place!

Where people just yelled at each other and forbid things and lorded it over one another:

'You're not right'

'What are you up to?'

Suspicion, oppression, malcontents, discontents!

They do not love!

How can they say they love the Lord if they do not allow love for one anther?

If they do not allow human love?

How can they understand spiritual love?

If they do not know brotherly love!

(That was after reading John 5:38)
