Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Luke 13:35


13:35 Your house is left to you desolate - Is now irrecoverably consigned to desolation and destruction: And verily I say to you, after a very short space, ye shall not see me till the time come, when taught by your calamities, ye shall be ready and disposed to say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. It does not imply, that they should then see Jesus at all; but only that they would earnestly wish for the Messiah, and in their extremity be ready to entertain any who should assume that character.


Discussion for Luke 13

  • Norm
    Repentance is to wholeheartedly turn from our own sinful ways, the ways of the world, as the LORD brings our sin to light and we are no longer ignorant of our sin. The ways of the world are broadly sinful as the devil is the god of this world wide system, or web: JESUS commands obedience as God has stopped winking at our disobedience. One must repent to be in CHRIST JESUS and be saved from the wrath to come upon the whole world. Be blessed in Christ Jesus according to His will. Amen. Acts 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
  • Sam
    Luke 13:1-5. Is this the answer to the question, why do bad things happen to good people? In other versions it is made clearer where the person asks Jesus about the people who were killed when the tower fell and were they bad or good?
    It is difficult for me to understand Jesus answer when He says to repent. Is he saying we must always be ready to die?
  • Marilyn
    We have to make sure we are saved and is walking up right before God .living by every word that come out of the mouth of God . and remember there is nothing hidden from God .so we need to be honest with one another as well as God.
  • Bro. Clavdivs
    what was displayed here complements Hebrews 11:6 "But without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to Please him: for he that cometh to God MUST believe that he is a REWARDER of THEM that DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM . "
  • Kevin stollings for verse 27
    It makes me think a lot . What does it really take to be truly saved. I beleave it all about relationships with God , the bible states that we are to seek him first and we come up short on that. I do beleve that will be the down fall of many of us. Spend more time in the bible
