The one who comes from above is above all. The one who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of earthly things. But the one who comes from heaven (is above all).He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. Whoever does accept his testimony certifies that God is trustworthy. For the one whom God sent speaks the words of God. He does not ration his gift of the Spirit. The Father loves the Son and has given everything over to him. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains upon him. (Jn 3:31-36)
This passage challenges the reader as to where one is in this picture. This speaks about; ‘from above’ and ‘of the earth’. The author is contrasting Jesus (the one from above) with the one from the earth. John the Baptist was from above; he was sent from God (There was a man called John, who was sent from God Jn 1,6). There are many people whose life and teaching are from the earth.
People trust the words of those who have no breath of heaven in them and no sign of life in them. He came to his own but his own did not accept him (Jn 1,11). Jesus came to speak the WORD of GOD. He came to give the SPIRIT of GOD. All what Jesus gave was from God. People did not believe in him. Wrath of God does not mean that God is a tyrant waiting to punish the wrong doers; but because they are from the earth and earthly they are bound to corrupt and decay.
