People's Bible Notes for John 14:6


Joh 14:6 I am the way, and the truth, and the life. This is said in reply to Thomas. Without him there would be no Way revealed; no divine and saving truth, no immortal life. No man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Not only can no one enter the Father's house without him, but no man can come to the Father on earth so as to enjoy his favor. "There is no other name given under heaven among men whereby we must be saved" (Ac 4:12).

    Wayne; There is more than just one reason for tongues; and it is of the Spirit how they are to be used. It is a sign, Yes! but shall not the unbeliever say you are mad, when they hear you speaking in tongues? It is also, and more importantly, the Spirit interceding, and for the building up of things in the Spirit, including the one praying in tongues. We should speak of things that we know!
  • Wayne
    Speaking in another language is for the hearer. Speaking in another language is a sign to the unbeliever, not the believer.
  • A disciple
    "I will pray in the Spirit; and I will pray with my understanding" The Spirit makes intercessions according to the will of God, and builds up the spiritual strength of the one praying in the Spirit. Many who don't really know, just repeat what they heard from others, and keep themselves from receiving the Blessing. In the beginning, speaking in tongues WAS THE SIGN of having received the Spirit!

    Tongues is not the only evidence that the Holy Spirit is present in ones life.The other spiritual gifts are evidenced by the Holy Spirit's work.Paul said he is glad he speaks tongue more that the others so they will have other gifts that are more helpful and edifying.Tongues is for the unbelievers to hear. Paul is not saying tongues is the best gift. Read chapter.
  • Manuel Mena
    Jesus promised us that he will prepare a place for us in heaven, a place that we erased from our spirit and soul because the rebellion and disobedience that took place when the Devil was once thrown out from heaven along with everybody to this earth for a Test to find out who is going to follow evil or our CREATOR. When he return to separate and clean out his house the place that prepared has all the rules and regulations that has to be followed in the kingdom of heaven this is a parallel similar what happen in the kingdoms of earth and every country has it's own language , culture its own regulations and laws and citizens has to live by those standards. God never hide mysteries from man, but our rebellious attitude put us apart from HIM and the understanding of the kingdom of heaven but through JESUS CHRIST we have access to that beginning.

    Dee, I am sorry if my comments have caused you distress. I assure you I am not distracted by Satan. I am focused on His word when I give scripture to answer questions, or help someone with scripture. (I acknowledge him in all my ways. Proverbs 3:5-6.) V.7 "Be not wise in thine own eyes, fear the Lord, and depart from evil."
