Bible Commentary for John 6:38

Wesley's Notes for John 6:38


6:36 I have told you - Namely, #John 6:26|.

6:37 All that the Father giveth me - All that feel themselves lost, and follow the drawings of the Father, he in a peculiar manner giveth to the Son: will come to me - By faith. And him that thus cometh to me, I will in nowise cast out - I will give him pardon, holiness, and heaven, if he endure to the end - to rejoice in his light.

6:39 Of all which he hath already given me - See #Joh 17:6|,12. If they endure to the end. But Judas did not.

6:40 Here is the sum of the three foregoing verses. This is the will of him that sent me - This is the whole of what I have said: this is the eternal, unchangeable will of God. Every one who truly believeth, shall have everlasting life. Every one that seeth and believeth - The Jews saw, and yet believed not. And I will raise him up - As this is the will of him that sent me, I will perform it effectually.

Discussion for John 6:38

  • OBBIE BEAL on John 6:38
    39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

    40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

    44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

    54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

    Note: as it relate to death, Yes! mankind has entered into death since Adam & EVE, never-the-less 4 times above JESUS gave them and us HIS assurance of HIS power over death, therefore we need not be fearful of death because once we rightly apply John 3:16-21 or similar verses we have assurance from JESUS we shall be raised up at the last day. PLUS.....

    Note: Revelation 7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to HIM, for The Marriage Of The LAMB is come, and HIS wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9 And HE saith unto me, write, blessed are they which are called unto The Marriage Supper Of The LAMB. And HE saith unto me, these are the true sayings of GOD.

    When or during my time in studying the jkv i began to notice that in the reference column that from a-i the alphabet was in the right order but after i there no letterj and went to the letter k and i used to wonder about that missing j as to why? was this j was missing and it took me years of studies before i found out that the letter j was not invented until 14-15oo is when that letter was first invented so that is when the name jeses was first used and i know that you all knew this before i did but you never ever try to teach the truth,why?you need to question yourselves and since you know the truth you need to do better research on the true name of the creator yah and his son yahshua and what the scriptures says about "we should not bring the father name to nothing or in vain they teach my people lies,you know what it says about the 144ooo you know that the only church that teach and preach in the true name is the church of philly(church of brotherly love)your own soul and the souls of millions will die and lose their souls because you all did not teach the truth when you could have saved millions of miss guided do not lose your soul
  • After the Tribulation - in Reply on John 6:38
    I learned something today. I'm glad you made this comment.

    We need you to come back, often as as you can, and show us other Rhema truths That the Holy Spirit has opened to you.

    I asked the Lord once, what happens with these people that are preached to by the 144,000 preachers during the Tribulation; the people pray to receive Jesus; they survive physically.

    Will their bodies be transformed?

    Why is Satan released to tempt? Who is he going to tempt?

    It's a mystery that will not be revealed fully, because a lot of people would procrastinate and think, "well I'll just wait till the last minute to ask for salvation." That's not an attitude of worshipping and adoring our Creator and Lord; desiring to be with Him for eternity.

    They would risk being caught and beheaded for not accepting the Mark of the Beast and refusing to worship Antichrist.

    The world has all kinds of new surveillance technology now: drones, infrared.

    It will be a true blessing to not live in those kind of invasive methods. In heaven we can worship in spirit; no constraints. Yay.

    Where can I find scripture ref the beauty of the sky with rainbow?
  • Covenant of the Rainbow - in Reply on John 6:38
    And God spake unto NOAH, and to his sons with him, saying,

    9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;

    10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.

    11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

    12 And God said, This is the TOKEN of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

    13 I do set MY BOW in the cloud, and it shall be for a TOKEN of a covenant between me and the earth.

    14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that THE BOW shall be seen in the cloud:

    15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

    16 And THE BOW shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

    17 And God said unto Noah, This is the

    TOKEN of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

    I don't know about the colors. I don't care to hear meteorologists try to explain rainbows like they're nothing. It's Gods Bow and His solemn promise with the earth.
  • Who is God on John 6:38
    Who is God? He is the all MIGHTY Creator of our entire universe. We as humans seem to forget He is always around us. We seem to be in our world. Me Myself and I. Easy to anger- easy to Judge others. But do you ever take the time to ask God what He wants of us? Do we ever turn around to the less fortunate and ask them what they need? The churches think they are so all mighty. But l have watched the cold hearts toward the needy. Jesus was always around for anyone that needed him. Was there anyone around to show their Love before the cross? What about now. What are we to become in these days of evilness and control? Our children...our God. Will we with stand all the pain for the All Mighty and fight. He is Our strength...our protection.. So are we going to

    deny Him when troubles come full force... Think people...think!!! Bless the Lord...Dont run away!!!
