People's Bible Notes for John 3:36


Joh 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life. Eternal life and eternal death turn upon trust in Christ. He who believes on the Son with a heartfelt, obedient faith, a faith that trusts all and surrenders all to the will of Christ, is born again and "hath eternal life" (Joh 6:54). The faith that saves is a faith that moves us to come to Christ.

Discussion for John 3

  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Do not take a verse out of its context and use it for an excuse not to speak in tongues. If you truly have accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior according to what the Holy Word of Life says, then there is absolutely no excuse not to for its Gods Word and Will for all His People to do. Mainstream christianity failed to take this critical next step of this out of fear of rejection. Shalom.
  • Denis Korb
    Paul, not all Christians are given that particular gift.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    PARADOX. Verse 27 ! God will send the Greater than John for our Blessed Lord Christ is Glorfied and seated at His Right Hand in Glory Everlasting Amen indeed. Gods chosen elect Zion will be baptised with the Holy Ghost Speaking in Tongues and once again be united with the Gentile church, throughly purged
  • Bro William
    The evidence of salvation received by the revelation of Jesus Christ is forgiveness and remission of sins. Sin no more lest a worse thing come upon you by accepting the lie that no one born again by the Holy Spirit of God is without sin. "We are all sinners" is not the confession of one who has been delivered from the power of darkness. If any man or woman is a true believer, they "sin no more".
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    HOLY {pneuma} SPIRIT {hagion} ! Speaking in Tongues is proof possitive in the realm of the 5 senses of God in Christ in you. POWER FROM ON HIGH ! BLESSED WITH ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS AND SO MUCH MORE ! God bless you ! Shalom yedda dim {beloved one}.
  • Paul
    We don't only believe god exists, but need to believe everything he says. Jesus said we must be born of water baptism by full emersion and of spirit the in-filling of the holy spirit . The evidence of recieving the holy spirit is you will speak in tongues.
