People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:6


Mt 5:6 Blessed [are] they which do hunger, etc. This implies the same sense of spiritual needs as verses 3 and 4. Hunger is a felt want, in this case a want of righteousness before God, the righteousness that comes from the forgiveness of sins. See Lu 15:17 Mt 5:3,4.

    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
