Joh 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth. We may paraphrase this verse thus: I shall ascend to heaven so that my body cannot be literally eaten; the flesh literally profits nothing. It is the spirit that makes alive. The spirits of men must feed upon me by faith, that they may be made alive. My words are spirit and life. He who feeds upon them will be made alive.

Discussion for John 6:63

  • Patricia on John 6:63
    by laying on the hands i was told BIG angel is standing with you! why would i be afraid? i ran out of the alter call to my pastor and i was afraid, my pastor at that time said to me, " wow! i like to have that spoken over me! I search God for the call on my life back in 2002. i am a messenger of God. i have seen the prophecy i done heard from the Spirit of God to go do this, say this, which i did, and yes it came to pass. i walked very close back then. i was wounded in church and i left the church but the holy spirit still gives me directions and knowledge today. what is it that got me now feeling stuck in a situation to do His will. i'm afraid that i've failed my call on my life. i was also told that the anointing on my life is very powerful but yet i'm afraid. how will you know if God has turned away from me?
  • Linda Rodriquez on John 6:63
    When we speak the Word of God we are speaking God Himself into the situation. God and His Word are the same - one. God is a Living Spirit, and His Word is Living Spirit and Life, and full of God's Power. When we speak the Word into any situation or circumstance, we are bringing God on the scene with all of His Life and Power to work in our behalf. It is a Holy Mystery. Awesome
  • Linda Rodriquez on John 6:63
    The Word of God is God. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God (Jesus), and the Word WAS GOD" (St. John 1:1). I take this literally not symbolically. Whenever I speak the Word of God to any part of my body or situation, I am actually bringing God into the situation. Because God and His Word are one! It is a Holy Mystery and cannot be understood with the natural mind, but my born-again spirit knows and understands. Awesome !!

  • Asiazobor on John 6:63
    The words of God gives us life that is to say that all we need to live a fulfill life is in the word of God.
  • Carla Reddick on John 6:63
    The flesh, which is the carnal nature, adds no substance to my life. Jesus promises abundant life, which only comes through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, which comes when we are santified by the Word of God, which is God breathed.
  • Sam on John 6:63
    Daily consumption of the word of GOD to stupor, brings a supernatural regeneration from the adamic spirit of sin which profits nothing to that spirit which raised Jesus Christ from the dead which now profits something i.e. "life in abundance " . Glory be to God!!

  • Napiliko on John 6:63
    The Holy Eucharist is the food for our souls which gives it life. Our Lord Jesus explains it like crystal clear water, but sadly so many of us cannot grasp its true meaning. Glory and Praise to Almighty God.....forever. Amen.
