People's Bible Notes for John 20:29


Joh 20:29 Blessed [are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed. Thomas "saw" (he did not need to handle) and believed. We have not seen, but nevertheless believe upon the same Lord. Upon us he pronounces a special blessedness, because we walk by faith instead of sight.

    1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. I thank God that I will not be in the 7 year tribulation or the second coming, Jesus will call me up in the clouds. RAPTURE

    To Peter okebukola. U stated that beautifully. Thank u Jesus
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Thank you Jesus for sacrificing for my sin. Jesus appeared several times to those who were present at the time of his death especially His disciples and Mother. He will appear to us all during His second coming and all eyes shall see Him. Verse 31: "that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name." Praise be to His Holy Name.
