John 7:34 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me:” (zetesete me kai ouch heuresete) "You all will seek or search for me and will not find me," as the Messiah, none of these rejecters of Him, inclusive of those of the Sanhedrin council, the chief priests, the Pharisees, and the arresting officers who had come to seize him, Joh 7:32; Hos 5:6; Joh 8:21. It is a solemn thought that man may reject the love of God and His call until it is too late, but they may, Pro 1:28; Isa 1:15; Jer 11:11; Jer 11:14; Eze 8:18; Mic 3:4.

2) "And where I am, thither ye cannot come." (kai hopou eimi ego humeis ou dunasthe elthein)" nowhere I exist you all are not able to come," Joh 8:24; Luk 13:3; Luk 13:5. One who passes through this life, having rejected Jesus Christ as Savior, is destined for separation from Him, from heaven, and from all who are in heaven forever. Such shall not only be separated, as garbage from a good household forever, but they shall have an accountable, conscious destiny of torments in a place called hell, with the devil, his demons, and those who forget God, Psa 9:17; Mat 10:28.
