Jn. 6:36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. 37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. Some from his audiance had asked for a sign from Christ so that they could "see and beleive" in Him (v. 30). They introduced the miracle of manna as an example of such a sign. (v. 31). Jesus denied that Moses gave them "true" bread from heaven but claimed "My Father" had given them true bread from heaven that if eaten would give life (vv. 32-33). They then asked Jesus to give them this bread (v. 34). Jesus told them that He was that true bread and if they would EAT of Him, that is, PARTAKE OF HIM BY FAITH they would live and never again hunger or thirst (v. 35). And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh see and believe] to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. However, Jesus who knew the hearts of men (Jn. 2:30) asserted that they both had seen him and yet believed not (v. 36). But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not On the basis of this omnicient assessment He contrasted them with those whom the Father gives to him (vv. 37-39) who will "see and believe" him (v. 40) in direct contrast to those who "see and believe not" (v. 36). John 6:37-39 provides the reason for this difference and it is a difference that God makes rather than sinful man. In John 6:37-39 the word "come" includes seeing and beleiving (vv. 30, 36,40)and it is the Father that gives this ability to both see and beleive or "come" to Christ. 1. ALL who are given to the Son by the Father come (see and believe)- none fail to come (see and believe) and none that come shall be cast out - v. 37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 2. ALL who are given by the Father "come" (see and believe) because it is God's will that accomplishes that. He is not referring to merely the "revealed" will of God but the will of God as carried out without flaw by the Son. The Son NEVER fails to fulfill the Will of God. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. Those who pervert this passage attempt to make the fulfilling of this will dependent upon those being given, thus conditional and possible to failure. It says no such thing. It is the Son who is placed in charge of accomplishing the Father's will in this matter and He never fails to accomplish the Father's will and can't fail as that would not only be "sin" on His part but denial of His Deity or sovereign power. 3. "OF ALL" the Father gives "NONE" perish: And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. None, not one, perish not merely because The Son always accomplishes the Father's will, not merely becuase the Son promises that not one that cometh He will never cast out (v. 37) but in addition he promises that every single one given will be "raised up at the last day" in the resurrection of life. The phrase "should raise it up again at the last day" is found four times in John 6 (vv. 39, 40, 44, 54) and in each case it refers only to those who come to Christ (see and believe in him) or true beleivers. Furthermore, all the dead will be raised up in the last day and so to make this a generic promise of resurrection invalidates it of any meaning. It refers to the resurrection of life previously mentioned in John 5:29. 4. John 6:40 comes full circle in contrast to verse 36. Those in verse 36 see and believe not whereas those in verse 40 see and believe and the explanation for the differrence is verses 37-39 or the work of the Son in fulfilling the will of the Father in regard to all that the Father give to the Son. The consequence of giving is coming and ALL who are given ALL come and ALL who come I WILL LOSE NOTHING. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. CONCLUSION: Those who deny this passage teaches eternal security must deny that it is the Son who is charged with fulfilling the Father's will in verses 38-40 rather than those who come to Christ. They must deny that the repeated phrase "shall raise it (him) up at the resurrection" refers to the resurrection of life. They must deny that "come" is previously defined as seeing and believing (vv. 30,36) as it is also defined in verse 40. Remember, his audiance asked him for sign that they may "see and believe" or "come" to hiim as the Messiah. They must deny that verses 37-39 are the basis for contrast between those in verse 36 as opposed to those in verse 40.
