Wesley's Notes for Luke 17:21


17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here, or lo there - This shall not be the language of those who are, or shall be sent by me, to declare the coming of my kingdom. For behold the kingdom of God is within or among you - Look not for it in distant times or remote places: it is now in the midst of you: it is come: it is present in the soul of every true believer: it is a spiritual kingdom, an internal principle. Wherever it exists, it exists in the heart.

    To Mary Nickel. See Isaiah 4 verse 1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man,saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach. Read chapter 3 to better understand this verse.

    My dad had told me long ago about women being so bad in the last days, and the Bible saying that they would be begging for a man and man would have nothing more to do with them. Was trying to find it and am having trouble with looking for it. If you could find it, I would appreciate it. Thank you

    from that event there is a lesson of tithe. Ten were heal right? one came back to say THANK u. I found out that Jesus now bless and prayed for him initially he didn't he only sent them. so when we pay tithe from what He has bless us with he add more and increases it, remember also when you say thank you, you enroll for more blessing. 1 return, and he was enroll for more blessing.

    v. 17 - the 9 that were healed - were just physically healed; the 'one' was spiritually healed - saved. also - this praise the one gave Jesus was done in public and was a witness to many others. we are to be witnesses of him.

    And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
