Question 649 John 6:44

By: Robert Serreyn

Question… In John Chp. 6, Ver 44 What does it mean…”except the Father draw him”?

John 6:44 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.

Answer… The answer to that is simple…. God (Father) draws every person to himself THROUGH the Gospel (1 Cor. 15:1-4, John 3:16, Acts 16:31), this is why it is SO IMPORTANT to share the gospel with whoever that you have opportunity to do with, BECAUSE the only way a person can be brought to God the Father IS BY the Gospel.

This verse unfortunately is also a favorite of those that teach Predestination, they say… See the bible says unless the father draws them they cannot be saved. That’s because They substitute the word Draw for chosen, which contradicts scriptures. The bible states that the Lord desires that ALL BE SAVED. 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance*

*A change of mind from Unbelief to Belief in Christ’s death, Burial, & Resurrection as the ONLY PAYMENT for your sins & ONLY HOPE of going to heaven.

In Conclusion:

Only through the Gospel are people drawn to God the Father & Jesus Christ,This is why God told us in Mark 16:15...And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature
Only the Gospel has the power to draw people to the Lord.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as YOUR savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins. … 1 Cor. 15:1-4.

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved – Acts 16:31

The moment that you do, YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.
John 10:28-29 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. (29) My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – Mark 10:45, 2 Cor. 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (to Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation.
– John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
