Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 5:24


5:24 He was not, for God took him - That is, as it is explained, #Heb 11:5|, he was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him. But why did God take him so soon? Surely because the world, which was now grown corrupt, was not worthy of him. Because his work was done, and done the sooner for his minding it so closely. He was not, for God took him - He was not any longer in this world: it was not the period of his being, but of his being here. He was not found; so the apostle explains it from the seventy; not found by his friends, who sought him, as the sons of the prophets sought Elijah, #2Kings 2:17|. God took him body and soul to himself in the heavenly paradise, by the ministry of angels, as afterwards he took Elijah. He was changed, as those saints shall be that will be found alive at Christ's second coming.

    JOHN 1:14 and the word was made flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld HIS glory the glory as of the only begotten of THE FATHER full of grace and truth JOHN 6:63 it is the spirit that quickeneth the flesh profiteth nothing the words that I speak unto you they are spirit and they are life JOHN 5:21 for as THE FATHER raiseth up the dead and quickeneth them even so THE SON quickeneth whom he will

    Jimmy if you read farther down in 1 John 5:7 it says For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
  • A disciple
    Jimmy; the things that are too much for us to bear just now, God will reveal to us in due time; and certainly when we see Him face to face! The are plenty of Scriptures that declare plainly that GOD IS ONE! But ONE doesn't just refer to quantity; although we know that there is no other God but our God. The Father sent the Son in the flesh to save the world from sin and undo the works of the devil.

    Jim: Genesis 1:26:Did God say let us,or let me make man? 1John 5:7:Does it say there are not 3 in Heaven. Genesis,Elohim is God's Name. It's plural. Husband and Wife (man and woman) 2=1. Thousands in The Body, The Church:1000's=1. your theory on the theory of The Trinity is, well just that. Salvation is Free. Foolishness is costly. John 6:44. Ask, you will be Changed: 2Corinthians 5:17

    Donna Cromb their is only one God. Read 1 John 5:2, 1 John 5:20-22 confirms that the theory of trinity is wrong. God is one.
