People's Bible Notes for John 14:9


Joh 14:9 He that hath seen me hath seen the Father. Philip wanted a literal sight of God with the natural eyes, when God incarnate had been present with him for three years, manifesting the mind, the purity, the saving power, the fatherly tenderness, the unutterable love of the Father.

    Verse 6: Jesus Christ is the only way to God. Jesus paved the way for us so that we can draw close to Jehovah God and have a relationship with him.

    John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Why did Jesus want us to follow the Apostle Paul doctrines. Philippians 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample

    In reference to Manuel Meana's comment On 6 15 17, I have found no scriptural basis for your comment, " 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..."

    John 14:20 "At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you." I once heard it explained how we cannot understand God's thoughts and His ways, any more than a sparrow can understand our breakfast. I don't know quite what a sparrow knows or doesn't know but I think the part about us is pretty true. At best and there have been some extremely brilliant and wise men among the LORD's Princes till we get there we will only ever be able to see or know in part, and at best, with a good deal of obscurity, just because of our humiliated condition and nature. So the things that the LORD has said to us, that we know right away as soon as we read or hear them, are too high for our little "bird brains " one day, IF we make it safe and sound and endure true and faithful to the end we will know even as we ourselves are also known and we will see face to face, all that we for the now hope for in faith.

    Everything that God created including us was for His pleasure! The question remains, are we pleasing to Him? Selah
