Wesley's Notes for Matthew 5:45


5:45 That ye may be the children - That is, that ye may continue and appear such before men and angels. For he maketh his sun to rise - He gives them such blessings as they will receive at his hands. Spiritual blessings they will not receive.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:45


Mt 5:45 That ye may be children of your Father. We are God's children when we have the spirit of our Father. We are not if we have the spirit of the world. Our Father above sends blessing, the rain, and the sunshine, on the just and the unjust. He loves all, and even sent his son to have a wicked world because he loved (Joh 3:16).

    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
