Wesley's Notes for John 14:27


14:27 Peace I leave with you - Peace in general; peace with God and with your own consciences. My peace - In particular; that peace which I enjoy, and which I create, I give - At this instant. Not as the world giveth - Unsatisfying unsettled, transient; but filling the soul with constant, even tranquillity. Lord, evermore give us this peace! How serenely may we pass through the most turbulent scenes of life, when all is quiet and harmonious within! Thou hast made peace through the blood of thy cross. May we give all diligence to preserve the inestimable gift inviolate, till it issue in everlasting peace!

  • Kitonsa Deo for verse 27
    This peace is only with those who confessed Jesus thus rickindled hope no matter the earthly challenges.
  • MockingBird for verse 27
    The world can give a certain amount of peace But it is not a lasting peace or a healthy peace. Drugs and alcohol and sex can give peace But not healthy and everlasting . The peace that God gives is everlasting and wonderful. The work of righteousness is peace. When we are in the will of God we are in peace. There is the permissive will of God where the devil is and but the perfect will of God is where the everlasting peace is. All the world that is without God is in the permissive will of God. I would rather be in the perfect will of God and I am so endeavouring to get there every day.Thank God for a way of escape !!!

The world as it has always been is a war zone, only this time I will be present with you and so will be My peace, don 't forget what I did to the devil at the cross, give him a licking for he 's no match to you ' And the Church said Aaaamen.
  • When you look at stucture of this scripture you have to understand the implied "sublect " of the sentence. The "implied subject " is you and me. "Rick, " Peace I leave with you..., "Jackie, " Peace I leave with you..., "Melissa, " Peace I leave with you.. It 's not just for someone else, it 's for us, all of us, whenever we need it. God has already left us His peace. It 's not something He has to hurry up and do when we need it. It 's already there for whenever we need it! Praise His Holy Name!
