People's Bible Notes for Matthew 25:41


Mt 25:41 Depart from me. Those that have sought the Lord on earth shall be with him forever (1Th 4:17). Those who have turned away from him shall be turned away from him forever. The punishment is everlasting banishment from his presence (2Th 1:9). Ye cursed. Under the Jewish law, anything irretrievably condemned and devoted to death was called "accursed" (De 13:17). The same term applied to the wicked is a sentence of eternal death. Into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. Fire is probably used, as in many other places in the Scripture, as symbol of the bitter punishment of the wicked. Note, (1) it is everlasting; (2) prepared, not for man, but for the devil and his angels. Those who choose his service will have his portion.

    My sister you cannot do it alone/ is spiritual battle (KJV Eph. 6:11-17). Apostle Paul struggled with flesh (Romans 7:14-25) he said the good I want I do not do. He reassures (1.Cor:10:13) God will not allow more than you can bear. You must choose in the MOMENT of temptation for God to help (Matt. 10:19).

    You left out the word "over" - make thee ruler over many things
  • Paul
    In today's time, I believe many have lost site of this one verse. Many people don't focus or can't focus on the end because they are so occupied with the current and the right now. This simple and yet powerful verse should always stay on the mind of the believers. The part that really gets me is when HE says you have been faithful ovr a "few" things. The question that comes to my mind is, Lord what are those few things that I may continue to abide in doing? Is it merely just doing what it takes to remain in your perfect will? Or is it just living holy and living completly by his words? I just wasnt to hear him say well done.
  • Cosmos Ekyinaba
    This very powerful inspiration. I have been trying to move away with sin, but after few days that I know I am gradually moving towards the Almighty, then something sinful comes to my way. I need help to be firm in the Lord. Thanks in advance for any one who wish to help me.

    Put God first into your life. We must be Born Again in Spirit and not in the Flesh. there are a lot of people seeking Peace and Divine Happiness in the wrong Church. Blessed are those Servants of God who obey God's words. It is commandment to give Tithes in the House of God and use tithes in God's ways. God will reward for those who obey his words. Give thanks to the blood of Jesus and praise Him.
