Wesley's Notes for John 6:64


6:64 But there are some of you who believe not - And so receive no life by them, because you take them in a gross literal sense. For Jesus knew from the beginning - Of his ministry: who would betray him - Therefore it is plain, God does foresee future contingencies: But his foreknowledge causes not the fault, Which had no less proved certain unforeknown.

    Lea Tanner; You misread the Scripture, nor understand how precious is our redemption! Jesus is God manifest in the flesh; or no one can be saved! "If you be willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land." You have to have a good and honest heart to receive the Word in a way that it will sprout and grow up and bring forth fruit unto God. Questioning and debating will keep you in darkness.
  • Lea Tanner
    John 6:38 is proof positive that God Almighty and Jesus Christ are two separate entities - the Father and the Son. God did not come to earth and become Jesus. God put his spirit into Jesus. Additional scripture tells us Jesus was the "express image" of God.
  • A disciple
    "For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me." John 6:38 Jesus came down from heaven to be born of a woman. This was to give His life for a ransom to save us from our sins. The whole reason for man being let go with his life, and therefore all our species being allowed to multiply and fill up the earth is because Jesus was to come and save us from our sins. This tells us that the present world we live in is only an evil necessity until all of God's children have been born into the world, and the entire Congregation of the saved is completely filled up. We are not given life to please ourselves, but God our Maker and our Saviour. All this that we now see is about to be taken away and only those who trust in the Lord will be left, and all whose names are in the Lamb's book of life.

    I CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN NOT TO DO MY OWN WILL BUT THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHO HAVE SENT ME. JESUS HIMSELF IS THE WORD OF GOD HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE FOR JESUS IS THE BREAD OF LIFE. HE IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD IN HIM THERE IS NO DARKNESS. PRAISE YOU JESUS AND WILL WORSHIP YOU FOREVER AMEN HALLELUJAH
