John 6:37, John 6:44, John 6:64-65

There is debate as to whether someone can reject Christ if God has drawn them to Christ.
Jesus said the work of God is that people believe in Christ.
Jn 6:29
Jesus answered and said to them,“This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent”
Jesus knew some did not believe in him, and said ALL the FATHER gives to Christ WILL come to Him.
John 6:36-37

Jn 6:36 But I said to you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe. 37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.

ALL that the Father gives Me WILL come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.
Further, scripture states NO ONE can come to Christ unless the Father draws him and Christ WILL raise those up.
Jn 6:44-45
44 NO ONE can come to Me UNLESS the Father who sent Me draws him; and I WILL raise him up on the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught of God.’ Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me
John 6:64-65
64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who it was that would betray Him. 65 And He was saying, “For this reason I have said to you, that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted him from the Father.”
It seems to me that Jesus was clear:
1) No one can come to Christ unless the Father draws him.
2) EVERYONE God the Father gives to the Son WILL come to the Son.
3) NOT EVERYONE comes to Christ.

4) ONLY those who have been granted permission can come to Christ
