People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:11


Mt 5:11 Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you. This is a personal application of what has just preceded. Some of those who listened were reviled by the Jews, and persecuted unto death. For my sake. In Mt 5:10 it is said "for righteousness' sake". The two expressions mean the same.

Discussion for Matthew 5

    Jesus condemned not only the act of adultery but also the thoughts leading up to it in verses 27 and 28.

    Whatever Bind on this earth will be Bound into heaven. God blessed the couple and bind them into one body. It is a sacrament to get married in the church in the house of God. To have a Husband and a wife you are a couple until rapture. If we have Jesus in our life we have everything we need. We need to be born again in spirit not in the flesh if the flesh is weak this is where a devil can use you

    To A. Moses in some bibles ( like mine ) when ever JESUS is speaking it is always in red letters, per say the red letter bible.

    To Devlin if your still reading this, yes it does state in the bible that Jesus is God. Please read, John 1:1 in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. I don't know you, your age, earthly age or Christian age. You made baby Christian for a season one. I won't make an assumption. I was a Christian for many years before I realized "Word" is capitalized! Word is Christ!!! Just replace "Word" with"Christ". I think bc not only was Christ sent here to die for our sins but, also to be the earthly voice of God. If we were to hear the voice of God I believe it would be to much for a human to handle.
