No one believes the Gospel of Jesus Christ unless it is given

John 6:63-65 (KJ3)

63. It is the Spirit, the (one) making alive. The flesh does not profit, nothing! The words which I speak to you are spirit and are life.

(Romans 8:8– Those in the flesh cannot please God)

In beginning was The Word and The Word was with God and was God and the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. He created all things and there wasn’t anything created that wasn’t created by Him.

God is Spirit John 4:24 John 1:1-3,14 John 1:18 Genesis 19:24 John 14:6

He is YHWH YHWH, The Father, The Son, The Spirit, makes alive whom He wills

64 But there are some of you who are not believing. For Jesus knew from (the) beginning who (they) are, the (ones) not believing, and who is the giving Him over.

65 And He said, Because of this, I have told you that no one is able to come ( believing) to Me if it is not given to Him from my Father.

They had not been generated from above John 3:3,5,8

Their “not believing”was because they weren’t given by The Father to Jesus. Jesus responded directly in verse 6:65 to the statement in John 6:64 that they were “not believing” by saying no one is able to come (believing) to Me unless it is given them by His Father.

In John 6:37 the verse starts out stating “All who the Father gives to Me shall come (believing) to Me……and in verses 39,40

And this is the will of the Father sending Me, that of all that he has given Me, I shall not lose (any) of it, but shall raise it up in the last day.

And this is the will of the (One) having sent Me, that everyone seeing the Son and believing into Him should have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day. Job 23-13 Isaiah 55:11 Isaiah 46:10


John 6:64 – qualifies some of them as “not believing” the same persons as the ones in verse 65 that don’t come because they are not able to come. Believing and coming are joint gifts; dependent on being given to Jesus by the Father. Those that believe, come. Those that come to Jesus, believe.

They, not believing, are still dead in their sins and trespasses, a child of Satan, and unbelieving. They just don’t come to the True Jesus believing the True Gospel. They are dead spiritually and need to be made alive spiritually. They are not able to come believing unless they are generated from above. If the Son sets you free, you are free indeed.

John 8:42-44 John 6:44 Ephesians 1:1-3 John 8:36 2 Corinthians 11:4 Ephesians 2:1-10 John 17:1-3 John 5:21 Matthew 11:27

It is safe to say from verses John 6:63-65 that believing and coming to Jesus are the fruit produced from the regeneration by the spirit of God’s promised people. The people He promised to save and give to Jesus that He will preserve until the last day and forever.

Believing and coming are united and are a direct result of being given to Jesus by the Father and then drawn to Jesus by the Father through the spirit because they were chosen and given by The Father. John 6:37 John 3:3,5,8 2 Corinthians 4:6 John 3:26-27 Ezekiel 36:27 John 6:44 John 14:6 John 6:29

We also know that those who come believing are coming to Jesus in belief due to the complete sovereign unconditional act of God according to purpose according to the counsel of His Will. John 3:8 Ephesians 1:11

The Father conditioned His people’s salvation solely on the atoning shed blood of Jesus Christ and His imputed righteousness alone; and not of the willing nor of the running of the natural man for whom He died; chosen from before the foundation of the world. 1 Corinthians 2:14 Romans 9:16 Romans 3 Romans 1:16-17 Romans 4:3-8 Ephesians 1:4 Ephesians 1:11 Romans 9:11

John 3:8 – “The Spirit breathes where He desires….. Matthew 1:21

See John 6:37-44 John 3:3,5,8 and John 3:26-27 A man is able to receive nothing if it is not given him from Heaven. In John 3.26 at the end of the verse some came to John and said ….. “all are coming to Him” ( then in John 3:27 John equates coming, once again, to being given by The Father from Heaven John 6:29 1 Corinthians 4:7

John 6:63-65- unites jointly coming, believing as being a result of being given by The Father from Heaven or above.

Then in other verses the ones given by the Father are described as the unconditionally chosen, elect or children of Promise Romans 9 Romans 8:28-30 Ephesians 1:4 Ephesians 1:11 that God promised to save through the work and person of Jesus Christ alone

See Matthew 1:21 Romans 8 & 9 Romans 3 Romans 4 Romans 1:16-17 John 6:29 John 10:26 John 10 Ephesians 2:8-10

SummaryNo one comes believing into Jesus’ work and person, The Gospel, as the only grounds for salvation unless it is given to him by The Father.

God, The Father, chooses, God, The Son, redeems those whom the Father chooses and God, The Holy Spirit, regenerates those The Father chooses and the Son redeems ! God is One!

Gospel of Jesus Christ

God promises to save His people Matthew 1:21 Matthew 16-16-18 Revelation 7:9 Acts 20:28 from their sins conditioned solely on the atoning shed blood of Jesus Christ and His imputed righteousness without any contribution from those He promised to save from before the foundation of the world. Salvation is conditioned on His work and person alone. Galatians 2:20 Revelation 4:10-11 Ephesians 1:4 Romans 8:28-30 Romans 4:3-8 Romans 3:24

Do you believe the Gospel? If you believe the Gospel (the Good News) of Jesus Christ, God has caused you to pass from death to life.
John 5:24 1 Corinthians 4:7 John 6:29

He has shone into your heart the illumination of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6

Matthew 11:27

All things were given over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father, except the Son, and to whomever the Son purposes to reveal (Him)

CommentMatthew 11:27 tells us The Son reveals the Father to whomever the Son purposes . In Matthew 16:16-18 we have the Father revealing the Son to whomever He purposes. The revealing has nothing to do with flesh and blood.

You will no longer be judged according to works; earning you the lake of fire because you didn’t meet God’s perfect standard of righteousness. Revelation 20:13-15 Romans 3:20

Your sins were paid for by the only acceptable perfect sinless sacrifice, Jesus Christ, who was punished for your sin; satisfying God’s justice, making God just, justifier and a Savior.

You should be joyful and relieved because your salvation can never be taken away by anyone or anything else, including you. Jesus promised not to lose any the Father gave Him John 5:24 Ephesians 1:13-14 Romans 8 Psalm 35:9 Matthew 11:28, Isaiah 57:21 John 15:16

Your salvation was planned and determined by God from before the foundation of the world.

Ephesians 1:3-4

All of God’s unconditionally chosen children of promise will sometime in their life come to the knowledge of the truth and be saved.

John 5:24, Mark 16:16, Isaiah 45:21-25 Romans 3:21-27, Romans 8, Romans 9:11, John 8:32, John 17:1-3, Romans 6:18, 1 Corinthians 6:11, Ephesians 2:1-7, Romans 6:20, Isaiah 45:24 Romans 9:8 Philippians 1:6 Philippians 2:13 2 Thessalonians 2:13

  1. Thank you for the edification of the Scriptures. Very comforting to know that God not only chooses to save every one of His elect, but that He also keeps them and finishes the work He starts.
