Wesley's Notes for John 10:27


10:27-29 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me, &c. - Our Lord still alludes to the discourse he had before this festival. As if he had said, My sheep are they who, Hear my voice by faith; Are known (that is, approved) by me, as loving me; and Follow me, keep my commandments, with a believing, loving heart. And to those who, Truly believe (observe three promises annexed to three conditions) I give eternal life. He does not say, I will, but I give. For he that believeth hath everlasting life. Those whom, I know truly to love me, shall never perish, provided they abide in my love. Those who follow me, neither men nor devils can pluck out of my hand. My Father who hath, by an unchangeable decree, given me all that believe, love, and obey, is greater than all in heaven or earth, and none is able to pluck them out of his hand.

    Verse 18 shows that no man takes Jesus' life from him, but he surrenders it of his own initiative.

    John Chapter 10 tells me that some of us can find ourselves in churches and places of Honor but we could be thieves because we did not enter the lawful way, some of the stuff we use may be unauthorized copy, we overheard genuine Christian conversation and we take it on board etc.

    What a loving and powerful God we serve. God has anointed us therfore no one can touch his anointed one. He who loves Jesus will keep his commadments and follow him till rapture. No matter what life we face dont let hands go off with God and never ever give a place for the defeated enemy to use us. All battles belongs to Jesus and victory are for us who enter the door of God
  • Felicia
    In John 14:6 Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No one cometh to the Father except by Him.
    If we come any other way we are a thief!! Jesus is the door, and we must come throuh the Door....
