This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them
Been doing some research and it seems many get confused here. No surprise as it literally reads as 'God enables us to come to Him'. But we need to use more discernment here. We have to grasp that this ''enabling'' us to come to Jesus...is Him enabling us to see Jesus as God. Holy Spirit plants the seed of Jesus in a willing heart. Inline with 1 Cor 12:3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus be cursed," and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit.
God / Father in heaven (Matt 16:17) enables us to go from Matt 16:14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” To Matt 16:16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
