Wesley's Notes for John 10:26


10:26 Ye do not believe, because ye are not of my sheep - Because ye do not, will not follow me: because ye are proud, unholy, lovers of praise, lovers of the world, lovers of pleasure, not of God.


People's Bible Notes for John 10:26


Joh 10:26 Ye believe not, because ye are not my sheep. Not from lack of proof, but from a lack within themselves. If, as his sheep, they would follow (hear and obey), they would recognize him.

    WHO IS THIS THIEF??? SATAN WHO IS AN EVIL SPIRIT, THAT WILL DRESS HIMSELF UP IN ANY WAY TO DESTROY US!!! THE ENEMY IS THROWING EVERYTHING AND THE KITCHEN SINK TO DESTROY ANYONE THAT GETS IN HIS WAY OF DESTROYING THE EARTH! THE ONLY WAY TO EXPERIENCE AN ABUNDANT LIFE AND RESIST HIM IS THROUGH THE POWER AND BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST!!!!

    John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: Jesus said to the Disciples follow me. Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Now Apostle Paul said follow me . 1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. Now Jesus is using Paul for us Gentiles to follow him. I follow Paul thru Jesus Christ our Lord

    In Jesus Christ, I greet you! I'm wondering if verse 12 concerning "the wolf" refers to the contemporary charlatans that preach for gain and lust? It would seem to me that those that gather around them, most likely aren't The Lord's sheep.
