Wesley's Notes for John 15:26


15:26 When the Comforter is come, whom I will send from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me - The Spirit's coming, and being sent by our Lord from the Father, to testify of him, are personal characters, and plainly distinguish him from the Father and the Son; and his title as the Spirit of truth, together with his proceeding from the Father, can agree to none but a Divine person. And that he proceeds from the Son, as well as from the Father, may be fairly argued from his being called the Spirit of Christ, #1Pet 1:11|; and from his being here said to be sent by Christ from the Father, as well as sent by the Father in his name.

Discussion for John 15

    The chapter in context -key: in me(Jesus) - deals with (believers, The Saved) Love, Abide and Fruit Bearing, vs 6. fruit(work) shall burn if we don't abide it becomes wood, hay, and stubble(1 Cor 3:11-15)..Fruit (Gal 5:22-23) Love then encompasses all Joy and Peace in us, (next three) with our brethren, (last three) with God. God's work thru us.. Faith in Jesus Christ and love for the brethren.
  • A disciple
    "..but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you." Do you ever think about why God had His Prophets write the Bible so large? We have to understand that God DOES INDEED intend us to know all things, but He waits for us to be able to bear it. There is no need, and absolutely no allowance for guessing, if we are true and sincere His friends!

    Remember the word that I said to you that the Servants is not greater than his Lord. If they have persecuted me they will persecute you also If you keep my words they will keep your words also.Thank you Lord for your words I believe you Jesus that if we follow and live like you we have to humbly carry our own crows but obedience to your words are more important than sacrifice I will praise you Amn
