John Ch 6 V 43-71

43“Stop grumbling among yourselves,” Jesus answered. 44“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. 45It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’[d] Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me. 46No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. 47I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life. 48I am the bread of life. 49Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died. 50But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die. 51I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”

52Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”

53Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. 56Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. 57Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. 58This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your forefathers ate manna and died, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever.” 59He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.

60On hearing it, many of his disciples said, “This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?”

61Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, “Does this offend you? 62What if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before! 63The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit[e] and they are life. 64Yet there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him. 65He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled him.”

66From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.

67“You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve.

68Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.”

70Then Jesus replied, “Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!” 71(He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)

.  Jesus replies no one will be saved unless God has allowed it. When we evangelize, when we spread the gospel to others, it is not by our actions they are saved, but only through God will He be able to change the people’s hearts. Every believer who reads the Bible and prays to God to learn from Him will be changed by God. Only Jesus has seen God, because He is God. Jesus tells us He is the way to everlasting life. Men of the earth may have received miracles, but Jesus is the Life which after you accept, will live forever.

.  Many of Jesus’ followers who do not understand Jesus’ teachings, led the wrong way by deceivers, or could not accept His love will desert God. Anything we do on this life for the world is useless, there is nothing to be gained, except to glorify God in all that you do so the non-believers may see your new life and would also want this change. For the people who already know of Jesus’ love, but refuse to accept it; God already knows which of those believers would accept Jesus and be saved, and the ones who would reject God, and would spend an eternity away from our Lord.

.  Even though God already knows who’s hearts are set on accepting Him or rejecting Him, He will still ask us this question; are we going to accept or not? On the outside we may seem as zealous believers of God, but He already knows our true face. For all the people who name themselves as of God, Christians, but has false teachings; God knows if you are the Judas. For youwolves hiding in the sheep’s wool, be ready when the time for judgement comes.
