To the Glory of Him whose NAME is above all names  



We know that it is the Lord's will for people to have a mate if they desire one. In the beginning when God created Adam, God Himself made this statement:

"... It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him" (Genesis 2:18 KJV). 

"Now the Lord God said, It is not good (sufficient, satisfactory) that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper  meet (suitable, adapted, completing) for him" (Genesis 2:18 Amplified).

The Lord wants to bring a mate to those who will ask Him and have the patience to wait for His choice.

There are some single people who are constantly out looking for a mate, and they are miserable because God has not sent them one yet. They have prayed and prayed, yet they still have no mate. Some settle for Satan's provision instead of asking God for the patience to wait for the one whom He would send. If they would look to Jesus and seek to please Him, rather than being concerned about a mate, soon they would find the right one crossing their path. Looking for a man or woman to just keep them from being lonely or just to fill their needs or to be a father or mother to their children should not be the only reasons for desiring a mate. They also need to be concerned about what kind of husband or wife they would be for a mate. These single people are still much in the flesh if they just want their own needs met. They should ask the Lord to fill them with His love and peace.

Being single is an important time to prepare us for marriage. It can also be a time to experience a closer communion with God. As we seek God to cleanse us of the world and help us become the kind of wife or husband that would bless someone, we will soon find that we are not lonely. First, the Lord would begin using us to bless others; then we will find we are content in Him. Eventually, in God's plan and timing, He will bless us with a wonderful mate so that both lives can be a witness for Him. We believe if a marriage cannot glorify the Lord, then it would be better to remain alone. There are worse things than being alone. One of these is to be out of God's will by compromising and marrying someone who does not feel the same way we do about the Lord.

Marriage is the second major choice we make in our lives, and we should never enter into it without much prayer. To rush into a marriage can be disastrous. The most important decision of our lives, of course, is our decision to follow the Lord. This decision is not a one-time declaration, but a daily determination to follow Jesus above all. If we allow the emotional or soulish realm to dominate our lives we become more susceptible to the enemy leading us astray through someone. This area of the flesh should be brought under the Lord's subjection so that Satan does not get the advantage and consequently destroy our lives and ministries. So many have failed the Lord because they chose a man or woman over the Lord.

We find this true throughout the Bible, too. Solomon's heathen wives led him into idolatry. Samson lost his eyes because of a woman, Delilah. David committed murder because of passion for Bathsheba.

Our emotions need to be cleansed as they are not the sign of love. The true definition of love is "God is love." If God is not in a relationship it is not true love. What this world calls love is really lust since it is built on what the other person does for me, not what I can do for him or her. If the other person fails to keep up his end of the bargain, a divorce occurs because the offended mate is no longer pleased. This is the attitude of the world's so-called "love." God's love loves without receiving back; God's love is forgiving and patient. God's love is gentle and kind. God's love waits. God's love sacrifices.

1 Corinthians 13 in the Bible gives us a beautiful definition of real love: (In this King James translation the word "charity" means "love.")

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Man's emotions are not a reliable gauge upon which to establish a marriage relationship. We must know in the Spirit that it is God's will. It is much better to marry for character than for emotion. Emotions fluctuate; character doesn't. Emotions are in the soulish realm, and unless the carnal mind has been renewed, Satan can give us emotions or feelings of love for someone of his choosing. (If he did not have this in his power, he could not split up marriages.) One of his favorite techniques is to suddenly take away the feelings one once had for his mate and give feelings for someone else. When he has successfully convinced a person that he no longer loves his or her mate, then he leads them to divorce, whispering, "You are living a lie." After he has destroyed that marriage, he then leads one to marry again by stirring their emotions for another. Often after their next marriage something happens that they do not expect. Before too long, friction begins to develop with the new mate, then arguing. Finally, they find the same thing has happened again; they feel no emotion for their new mate and the next divorce is in the making. "Falling" in love is Satan's way. The very expression of these words should tell us something. A Christian should not blindly "fall" into any trap. Love is bigger than simply falling for someone. Certainly, the Lord gives us a wonderful emotional feeling for the one we are to marry. However, this "feeling" without God's direction can be disastrous as Satan can tamper with our emotions and feelings too.

Marriage, in a Christian's life, should be based on a decision directed by the Holy Spirit. A Christian's love for another is a commitment. Of course, the Lord will supply the emotions for the mate He sends, but that should not be the criterion for making the decision to marry. The Lord should be sought, and whatever He speaks to us we should do. He knows the future and what is best for us. If we trust Him He will not fail us in this or any other important area. Women or men who allow emotions to rule them will never be victorious Christians. Emotions should always follow, never lead.

During Old and New Testament times, fathers and mothers chose the mates for their children. God's people were very careful to choose those who were "believers." We find this practice still prevalent in India and other Eastern cultures. The parents, being older and more prudent, made wiser decisions than the children in this area. The divorce rate in India is only about 7%, whereas in the USA, at the present, it is nearing 50%. Marriages that are loveless can be saved and restored simply by asking God to restore the love that was once there. Sexual relationships can also be healed by praying for a desire for one's mate. Prayer is a mighty weapon. God's love can mend and heal, providing people are willing to lay down their lives for their mates. His love will not fade, as does the love of the world.

Those who are single and have never been married are cautioned in God's Word to seek a mate who is a like believer. "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14)." Many precious people suffer because they are living with unsaved mates. Some did not have Christ when they made their marriage decision, but they have since found the Lord. Those will have God's grace and love to win their mates for Jesus. The Lord always strives to bring the lost mate to Himself through the partner who knows Him. Mighty miracles of deliverance and salvation have occurred when people have endured suffering in order to bring their mates to the Lord. Those people who have the light, but choose to marry into darkness by yoking themselves to unsaved mates find that their flesh has led them away from God.

The Lord wants to bless marriage unions and see His plans fulfilled in both mates' lives. What a glorious plan He had from the beginning for both male and female. We can trust Him in this important decision. If we will totally commit to do His will we will never be disappointed in the one He sends into our lives.



1 Corinthians 6:18-20 & 1 Corinthians 7:1-2

"Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband."

The dictionary meaning of the word "fornication" means any unlawful sexual intercourse including adultery. In the Bible the Greek definition of the word "fornication" means to commit illicit sexual intercourse. What constitutes unlawful sex? Whose laws do we live by? Worldly standards or laws many times do not always line up with the Word of God. The founding fathers of the United States established many laws that were originally based on Christian standards and the laws of the Bible. However, through time the United States has drifted far from these standards and at the present our moral standards are shocking the world. However, immorality is not only found in the U.S. but is a world-wide epidemic. Societies throughout history and around the globe have embraced sexual standards that are called sins in the Bible.

Fornication is not just tolerated in our society but is actually being encouraged. The sin of fornication is being committed even among Christians, as many couples "live together" and have sex before marriage. The Bible tells us to flee this sin. We have counseled Christians of the opposite sex who share an apartment and they told us they were not having sex so this surely wasn't wrong. The Bible declares these words in 1 Thessalonians 5:22-23:

"Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Our lives as Christians are a living witness to others and we cannot break the laws of God without hindering others from coming to Christ. We must live our lives in purity before a sinful and wicked world. We should not be living according to their standards but according to God's standard in the Bible. No couple should live together outside the bonds of marriage.

Many say they live together before marriage to see if they are compatible as they don't want to divorce. This may sound like a justifiable reason for committing the sin of fornication, but in God's eyes it is still sin. Statistics however, show that those who live together before marriage are more likely to get a divorce than those who do not. Living together shows a total lack of trust in God and a failure to commit to Him the choosing of a mate. Christians who are living in this situation are out of the will of God and need to repent and seek God as to whether this person is the right one for them. If it is God's will for them to be together they should marry. Otherwise, they need to change their living arrangements.

As Christians, the goal of any relationship should be to cause the people in our lives to love and know the Lord better. Living together is shameful and selfish as the parties do not care what others think or how they might affect their families and others. They are living to please their own lust and selfish desires. This type of life style is destructive and especially so for children whose parents are living a bad example before them. No wonder our children are confused about right and wrong when parents degrade the sanctity of marriage by living together out of wedlock. How can living together cause children to love and honor God when their parents break the laws of God before them because they are lustful?

Young people today need to be taught to abstain from sexual intercourse and remain pure virgins before marriage. So many problems in marriages today stem from the fact that they are not virgins when they marry. Young people are bringing wounded emotions and diseased bodies into their marriages because of prior promiscuous affairs. STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) are so widespread that the statistics are shocking. There are 12 million new cases of STDs annually in the United states and 67% of these occur among persons under the age of 25. In fact, every year one out of six teens contracts an STD. 100,000 to 150,000 women become infertile each year as a result of STDs.¹ Others endure years of pain as some of these diseases are incurable. What a tragic price to pay for sexual sins. The Bible is right when it says fornication is a sin against one's own body.

The sin of fornication is not only defined as illicit sexual intercourse between those who are not married but also is an umbrella for other sexual sins as well. The Bible also speaks of the sin of incest as fornication in 1 Corinthians 5:1:

"It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife."

The Bible also lists whoremongers as fornicators in Revelation 21:8:

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

All prostitutes and pimps are fornicators. Couples who just "live together" according to the Bible, are committing the same sin that whores commit. Singles who "make love" fall into the same category. Just because society has accepted this type of living does not make it right. The Bible must be our standard of what is right and wrong. We must change our standards if we do not want the wrath of God to fall on us. God hates sin but He loves the sinner. If anyone repents and calls on Jesus today He will help them to come out of any illicit relationship and heal them of all past hurts and even heal any disease that they may have contracted.

God gave us the laws in the Bible for our good. They are not meant to deny us any good thing but they are given so we can enjoy the proper sexual relationship in the proper time. If we obey the words of the Bible and "flee fornication" and glorify God in our bodies, the Lord will bless us beyond what we could believe.

Psalm 145:17-21: "The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works. The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them. The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy. My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever."

End Notes

Who is GREATER-the Father or the Son?

John 14:28 “You have heard Me say to you, 'I am going away and coming back to you.' If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, 'I am going to the Father,' for My Father is greater than I.”

The Jehovah's Witnesses say of John 14:28, “this verse proves that Jesus is not God and is in fact inferior because his Father`is greater than he'.”

Philippians 2:5-8 and other passages clearly show that while on the earth, Jesus, who is the Son “was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone” (Heb 2:9).

In fact the next verse explains v.10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.”

Paul is referring to what the apostle John wrote about Jesus’ nature “All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made” (John 1:3).

Paul further explains, “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist” (Col 1:16-17). No man or angel can create all things and hold them together. It is impossible for Jesus to be a created thing, a creature if he is the creator of all things seen and unseen according to the Scripture. Jehovah’s witnesses and Iglesia Ni christo need to pay attention to what the inspired word of god says and not ignore these clear portions of revelation.

We are told that Jesus the Son “Having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they” (Heb 1:4). Jesus purposely “humbled himself' became a servant to the Father and mankind and while Christ was here as a man. His position was lower than God the Father's, thus His Father was “greater” than He. The word better used here implies a difference in nature, quality, or essence. The word greater denotes a difference in rank or position. Jesus Christ is said in Scripture to be better than the angels (Heb. 1:4).  How can he be greater than angels if he is as the Jehovah Witnesses claim Michael the arch- angel?  By nature He was superior to the angels. How can he be better than the angels if he is only a man as Iglesia ni Christo claims. God the Father called Jesus God in Heb. 1:8 and said for ALL the angels of God are to worship Him (Heb. 1:6), worship is an honor reserved only for God Himself (Rev. 19:10). Jesus by nature, being God is equal to God (John 1:1,14, John 5:23, John 14:1) but positionally, during His earthly time as a man, His Father was certainly “greater” than He.

*** Strong's Concordance states that meizon, the Greek word for greater (Greek Dictionary #3187) simply means “larger”. Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the New Testament)

Vine's Dictionary says that meizon 'is the comparative degree of megas” (meaning “great” in the Greek). Vine's refers us to Titus 2:13 as an example “of rank” of persons, where Jesus is called “our GREAT God and Savior, Jesus Christ.” (The Expanded Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words).

Robertson's Greek Word Pictures- John 14:28 Greater than I meizoon (NT:3144) mou (NT:3406). Ablative case mou (NT:3406) after the comparative meizoon (NT:3144) (from positive megas (NT:3130)). The filial relation makes this necessary. Not a distinction in nature or essence (cf. John 10:30), but in rank in the Trinity. No Arianism or Unitarianism here. The very explanation here is proof of the deity of the Son (Dods).(from Robertson's Word Pictures in the New Testament)

Other New Testament Dictionaries agree, meizon is positional: regarding authority, though EQUAL, the Father has authority over the Son (who became a man), as the sender is over the sent one, even though they are EQUAL iIn nature

A Jehovah’s Witness will say you are not equal to your Father. If we apply this to God’s nature, than by their own human logic, my father’s father was greater than he was, and so was his father. Tracing it back to our original ancestors, we can then say we are all decreasing in nature. But the fact is, we are equal in nature to our father, just not in position.

In John the comparative meizon appears only in the discourses. It brings into prominence Jesus' claims and the unique effectiveness of his work. In authority he is “greater” than Jacob (Israel), Abraham or other men, for he brings life (4:12; 8:53; 5:20, 36). His works have been given him by the Father who, however, despite the unity and equality which exist between the two, is “greater” than Jesus himself (10:29; 14:28). The commission with which the Father sends the Son is balanced by the Son's obedience in carrying out his work of love. The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology, ed., Colin Brown, Vol. 2, 1967, 1976, p. 426.

We see that “greater” is considered a positional word with emphasis position in relationship to others, i.e., He is 'larger” in greatness than others. How can Jesus call His Father greater, or higher in rank than Himself at Jn. 14:28 and yet be the “Great God” in Titus 2:13? Is this not a contradiction? Not if one became a willing servant to their Father while on earth. (Jn. 1:1, 14: The Word who was God, became flesh, a man). His Father, God, is 'greater” in position and authority than Jesus as a man in the role lf a servant.

The context in jn. 14:28 bears it out. Using Strong's and Vine's definition of “greater” and interpreting Jesus’ own words: “the Father is larger, higher in rank than I.” It is important to note that Jesus is not using a word which means the Father is better or superior to Him in quality of nature, but rather larger in (size or degree of) authority. We know “greater” does not refer to a different quality of nature BECAUSE Jesus uses the very same word to describe the greater SIZE works (greater in quantity, i.e., more works, not better works) that His disciples will do compared to His own works. If it meant nature as the Jehovah Witnesses state then we are greater then Jesus in nature- which would be absurd to any Bible believing person. He said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because 1 go to the Father.” (jn. 14:12)

From this prophecy, we conclude “greater” does not mean “better”, a word of quality, but means “larger”. The disciples were to do the same type of works, just more of them as they were spread throughout the world. Incidently what greater works (if this is nature not in size) has the Jehovah witnesses done?

Jesus make it clear in John 13:16” “Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him” Same word meizon for greater. This cannot be related to nature since Jesus is human as his disciples are human.

In Jn. 14:28 Jesus wasn't saying the Father is better than He in nature (he being a creature the Father being the eternal God) , but instead the disciples could do more, so could the Father do more.

'If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.” Philip said to Him, 'Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.' Jesus said to him, “Have 1 been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how do you say, 'Show us the Father?” (John. 14:7-9)

One needs the God of Scripture to reveal to them whom the Son actually is. He is the exact representation of the invisible God.

Heb 1:3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high”

No man can be the brightness of his glory ( think of what Jesus revealed on the Mount of transfiguration where again the Father spoke with the glory over him, that He was his beloved Son.)

The word image charakter-from the same as 5482; a graver (the tool or the person), i.e. (by implication) engraving ([“character”], the figure stamped, i.e. an exact copy or [figuratively] representation): KJV-- express image.

The writer is conveying the exact expression (the image) of the invisible God was made known to man by a m an. He was precisely like his father who remained invisible in every respect.

The answer to all this is found in His state of humiliation- taking up the human condition from his conception, the form of man on earth. Growing to the time of being a priest (30 years of age) and being revealed to Israel.

Phil.2:5-8 “Who being in the form of (nature) God (Gal. 4:8: there is only one God by nature) did not consider it robbery to be equal with God. 7: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men (nature):” In becoming a man something changed since he was not in a servant role to the Father before He became man. This was a change of position, not a change in nature. He, as God, could not empty himself of His essential nature, since unchangeableness is part of his nature. All His attributes are eternal so he could not eliminate any but he could put them aside in using them as He entered time and space to reach mankind. That is how powerful God is.

“Their was a voluntary emptying to give up his independent use of his divine attributes while living on earth in a subordinate role to the Father. This did not change his nature as being the Son of God. That Christ gave up the “Independent exercise of the divine attributes” (Strongs Systematic Theology p.382).

When the scripture says “the Son can do nothing of himself” (Jn.5:19) it means while possessing all the nature and attributes of deity He did not independently use them on His own but obeyed his Fathers will and pleasure. The mistake made, is when one confuses subjection with inferiority, this is not the case. For example, Jesus in Lk.2:51-52 was subject to his parents. Here we have the God/man who is subjecting himself to two sinful humans. Certainly he was superior in both position and nature to them, being sinless and their creator. Does that mean they were 'better” than He, or merely “greater” for a temporary period of time while He was on earth? All would agree they were never, at any time, superior in quality to the Son of God. Jesus also put himself under the law being subject to its commands to fulfill it perfectly. Certainly he being the one who gave the law was greater, yet he willingly put himself under it. He was to be subject to the ruling authorities of Rome giving them their due. Temporarily, even the angels were even more powerful than him.

As the Chapter of Phil. 2 starts out teaching to esteem others better than yourself, to look out for others interests and to “let this mind that is in Christ Jesus be in you.” Are we to esteem them as greater in nature? Of course not. Paul then goes into the event of what took place in the incarnation. He ends with every knee will bow and confess Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of the Father. Pointing to the exalted state He gave up that was restored to him, that He is forever more in. In fact Jesus is indeed still in a body which the Jehovah Witnesses deny. As it states in Scripture- 1 Tim.2:5: “For their is one God, and one mediator between God and man, THE MAN Christ Jesus.” Notice it says man- not angel. Only God can be a mediator for all mankind, this is the God who took up a body while on earth and was raised in this same body.

We do not need to go to the Greek words as the actual meaning, for the sentences describe themselves.

Rom 9:5: “according to the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, the eternally blessed God. Amen.” (can YOU say amen?)

The Bible commands the wife to be subject to her husband, this is not a matter of inferiority verses superiority. Both are of the same species and nature yet there is a divine order as is stated in Eph.5:22 of the positional hierarchy. Because of a positional hierarchy.

Likewise the Father is over him positionally, just as the husband is over his wife. This is not a matter of inferiority verses superiority in ones nature but an order of divine decree.

Eph 5:21-23 submitting to one another in the fear of God. Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body” Christ was a perfect example to us of walking in the fear of God and in submission to the Father.

'Greater' not 'Better. For one who holds to the idea that the word “greater” (Greek-meizon), can be rendered as “better”, i.e., superior in nature, the following verses provide proof that better is not a synonym for greater. To substitute better for greater would destroy the meaning and make nonsense out of these texts:

Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater that John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.” (Mt. 11:11)

Was John the Baptist superior in nature to all other men? On the other hand all believers would be greater in nature to John who was the greatest born of women.

For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table, or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves.” (Lk. 22:27)

Was Jesus lesser in nature than those He served? This means even the disciples who were sinful were greater than Him.

“You are not greater than our father Jacob, are You, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself, and his sons, and his cattle?” (Jn. 4:12) Was the woman asking Jesus if he was of a superior nature to Jacob?

'Surely You are not greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets died too; whom do You make Yourself out to be?” (Jn. 8:53) Did the Jews ask if Jesus was of a superior nature to Abraham? It was about position.

In the same way in John 10:30-11:15 Jesus spoke to the antagonists “I and My Father are one.” Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?” The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God.” Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, 'I said, “You are gods” '? “If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), “do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming,' because I said, 'I am the Son of God'? “If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; “but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.” Therefore they sought again to seize Him, but He escaped out of their hand.

Jesus’ point was that they were given a ruling position by God (as judges) but they did not recognize His ruling position was also given by God. His was greater because He was by nature one with His Father, He was the Son of God. They got the message and were threatened by it. It is no different today by those who do not want to submit to the one God sent and make Him something other than He and the Scripture says He is.
