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.

    Cosmos, we cannot be firm in the Lord with our might. He is strong we are weak. Talk to the Lord stating your problem. Tell Him you have to help me because I cannot do it. Tell Him, you have to do it. You have to make it work in me. He loves to cleanse in our inner man. He works in our spirits for our purification. Trust Him. He will do it! God Bless!

    The 10 virgins ( I don't get the significance of the no.?) I went to M. Henry on this, but he was no help. To me the 'oil' is our praying EVERYDAY for the infilling of the Holy Ghost; to keep prayed up. The Spirit is the oil in our daily walk. I may be way off about this .................?

    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).
