People's Bible Notes for John 3:36


Joh 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life. Eternal life and eternal death turn upon trust in Christ. He who believes on the Son with a heartfelt, obedient faith, a faith that trusts all and surrenders all to the will of Christ, is born again and "hath eternal life" (Joh 6:54). The faith that saves is a faith that moves us to come to Christ.

    Hebrews 1:2

    What other worlds did God create?
  • Chris - in Reply on John 3:36
    The 'worlds' are the 'worlds of the Universe', i.e. the planets, stars, asteroids, etc. And Jesus was involved in their creation (also see Colossians 1:15-17).
  • Gary Lee - in Reply on John 3:36
    The worlds referred to in Heb 1:2 means [ahee-ohn; a particular age or period or interval] so it may not mean other worlds besides our world since Adam and Eve, but having said that, Luke 15:4 speaks of a man having a hundred sheep and losing one, leaving the 99 to look for the one. This means what we all know it to mean; that Jesus will do anything to save all his children, this could also mean that God made other worlds/dispensations before Adam and Eve and we are the 1 lost sheep that needs saving. I haven't done much research into it but knowing God-with Him all things are possible, so its entirely conceivable.

    Revelation 9 speaks of Abaddon which comes out of the bottomless pit. This Abaddon lived before Adam and ruled a prehistoric world made up of hybrid beasts. The locusts are a combination of man and beast. The creatures that sinned in the prehistoric age were banished to the bottomless pit.

    Lucifer fell by looking on the sin of these prehistoric creatures. Apparently lucifer was tasked to cover the sin of these prehistoric creatures with his wings but he disobeyed God and looked and was filled with pride.

    There's also mention in Is 34:14 which speaks of hybrid beasts like the Satyr which means [he-goat, faun, devil, hairy, kid, rough]

    in Romans 13 we give honor and respect to those in authority in the church I.E. Apostles Prophets Evangelists Pastors and Teacher. In timothy we pray for leaders of our country or community big difference
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on John 3:36
    Dianne,

    The honor and respect deserved, is conditional upon those leaders meeting the qualifications of "For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil." Too many leaders, regardless of whether in the church or government, embrace evil. And while the office they hold by the power of men deserves respect, all respect deserved and power over believers is dependent on what their character shows us. God defines for us those he has empowered to rule our affairs. Believers are not to yield to evil, but instead, resist even unto death of the body.

    Chris, " What sort of Pastor must he be as described in verse 4?" I believe the position could be either a believer or an unbeliever, in the latter case, a hireling. "The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will." Proverbs 21:1
  • Chris - in Reply on John 3:36
    So you understand Romans 13:1-7 to apply to the authority within the Church? It would be interesting to read other views on this. I've re-read the passage now & just can't fit our Church leaders into that narrative. What sort of Pastor must he be as described in verse 4?
  • Chris - in Reply on John 3:36
    One of the main Scriptures on inter-racial marriages is in Deuteronomy chapter 7, where Israel was forbidden to take wives from the heathen nations around them. And this was primarily because Israel was "a holy people unto the Lord" & such a union would guarantee that Israel's heart would be turned from following the true God. A particularly nasty example was seen in King Solomon in 1 Kings 11:1-13, where a once wise King erred greatly in this matter & displayed much foolishness.

    Otherwise, the Bible says or infers nothing about inter-racial marriages for Christians, except that we should have such a close union (whether in marriage or business) only with other believers: 1 Corinthians 7:39; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.

    On the 'flat Earth', I have no further comment than already given in the past, on such a proposition.
  • Dianne - in Reply on John 3:36
    Cody the bible calls the earth a sphere and according to Gods Word there is nothing wrong with interracial marriages.
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on John 3:36
    Hello Dianne,

    Where does the Bible call the earth a sphere? Thank you.
  • Dianne - in Reply on John 3:36
    Richard Isaiah 40:22, job 26:10 the Hebrew word compassed meaning circle,
