    I have a Question of sort could someone explain what Jesus meant when In Matthew 8:22 He says Follw me and let the dead bury the Dead.. thanks in advance
  • Jesse
    Tommy,

    First look at Verse 21, the phrase "suffer me first to go bury my father." As soon as a person says "me first" in the same sentence that he says Lord, there's a problem. It's never "Lord, me first." Jesus said you come now. That's true discipleship!

    He says, I have to go bury my father. Either his father had just died and he had to go bury him, or his father was sick and hadn't died yet. In the Orient today, they still use this exact phrase for a person who's working with his father at his business. He can't get away until the father dies, and everybody divides up the inheritance. After that, they are free to do whatever they want to do.

    He's saying I'm committed to this business, and if I walk away now, I am going to lose my inheritance. So allow me first to go take care of business, and then I will follow you.

    Jesus made what seems to be a very harsh and cruel statement. He says "Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead." What Jesus is saying is "Let the spiritually dead people bury the dead relatives."

    Satan doesn't play fair. He knows our weaknesses. When we make a commitment to Jesus Christ, Satan will use the closest people to us to draw us away from Christ. The first two chapters of Job tell us that Satan scouts God's people. He knows what our weaknesses and strong points are. He tempts us according to our weaknesses. When we're faced with commitments, we make them, but the Lord challenges our commitments. He looks right through the commitment and He challenges it. Jesus says, are you sure you want to go with me wherever I go? "Let me first go bury.." No! It is now, you come now!

    It seems cruel and harsh, but the Lord is applying a spiritual principle here. He is basically saying that Satan has got you all wrapped up and you have to make a decision between your earthly responsibilities and to follow Christ. And Satan uses earthly things to draw us away from our commitment to Jesus to be His disciple?

    Praise the Lord!

    I just hope that the people who have read not only this chapter, but also the whole word of God. That in order
    to be a child of God You have to be saved. Which is being born of the water and of the Spirit. John 3:3 thru 7 and also
    Acts 2:38. This is the new birth in order to be a true child of God. Romans 8:9 he that have not the spirit of Christ is none of his. He's talking about the Holy Ghost folks, the same Spirit that came down on the day of Pentecost.Acts 2:1-4. Then we'll be one in Christ, joint heirs with him. Then his Spirit will give us the power to walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. To God be the Glory, Praise the Lord.

    Can Christians smoke or have tattoos
  • Luis
    Would Jesus smoke or have tattoos?
  • James cardoza
    Jesus would not give in to those things of the flesh.And Jesus would not mark his body to validate his beliefs.
  • Mishael Tattoos vs Mark of the BEAST
    James Cardozo: we weren't to mark up our bodies. Back then it was probably more likely to get infections; there were no antibiotics. And like now, if you want to get some taken off, I'm guessing it's expensive?

    In the 1960's, we had gatherings in the park and PAINTED each other, made hats of flowers.... the "all you need is love" generation. The first generation to let their kids raise themselves.

    Every generation since then has had to reach farther and deeper to be cool or weirder than their parents...who gradually stopped following God, to follow that greenback in the sky :/ The LOVE of money is the ROOT of all evil. We can't take it with us, you know? Live simpler - less problems.

    Isaiah 8:19-20. I'm gonna preach it again: wizards that PEEP and MUTTER are not God. We run to godless Google to look for answers 19 times a day. Computers and all the amazing electronics are not your friends. We're being tracked with cookies and by data miners. How did Isaiah see this? The Holy Ghost ratted out the future.

    Get tracked for following God! Search the scriptures! See what other gems of wisdom are laying right there for us to trip over.

    Don't you see? The spirit of Antichrist is already here. We're all being tracked. If we take The Mark of the Beast, we're already dead. Tattoos aren't the mark of the BEAST. You're going to be ordered to take it in your hand or upon your forehead... so you can use your money. You're going to be forced to worship him as if he was god. The REAL God, almighty God will not receive you into the Kingdom with that mark! You're dead, remember?

    Now you have a responsibility to preach this truth to your friends. HUGE difference between a tattoo and a EVIL mark from Antichrist. He, false prophet and Satan are all headed for the Lake of Fire. It's not a beach you know.

    Quit sinning now, Run to Jesus and be born again!! Have your name written in the Lambs book of LIFE. Tell your friends you are SAVED !
  • Vanessa
    that's how he created us to be. We are born with in His image both male and female but ever to say God made you to live any other way that goes against His creation is to err
  • Vanessa
    When we except Christ, we become a new creation through Him, our body is His temple, since He had no sin, and He washed us clean took our sins nailed them to the cross, there are things that are forbidden, and the Holy spirit does convict us all, though some would rather stay in the lust of the flesh and change the word of God to justify their ways. Remember Genesis 1:27 that's is God's plan
  • Cathryn
    I believe that this verse iz referring to sexual relations betwixt thoze who are unmarried and than wen 1 readz the full Chapter than 1 can get the full meaning. and of course of course the entire word of the Living God iz alwayz important : Amen.
  • I am that Michael Isaac Dale
    I give you the Gospel (of GOD) and ye imagine to lead me before evil men for filthy lucre's sake? Did GOD tempt this of thee? Nay, it is of your own proud lusts, being enticed of Satan. Are ye wise in thine anger to use the grace of Christ to do evil (as the servant of sin) or to REPENT? How much more the anger of GOD, my Holy Father? AM I THEREFORE BECOME YOUR ENEMY, BECAUSE I TELL YOU THE TRUTH?
  • Bruce
    It Means a Male Acting Like a Female.
  • CJ Davis
    having feminine qualities untypical of a man : not manly in appearance or manner...
  • Bobbie Lee Curtis
    Please describe in detail the 9th verse of 1 Corinthians 6. The word effeminate, what does this word mean in our modern day terms?
  • Vanessa
    when you check the greek translation it means passive homosexual partner and homoexual
  • Stanjett
    effeminate means gay.
  • Bobbie Lee Curtis
    Thank you so much for your reply to my question.
  • Gary Mackenzie
    What a beautiful scripture! There is our hope. Us gentiles were bought through Jesus Christ our Lord and savior! Faith following abundantly in the hearing... May we all have faith and remember the words and teachings of our master and savior! Our reborn lives and bodies and spirits are that of the Lord's.. listen to your spirit, has the Lord asked you to give something up? It's time for us to have faith! Confess with our lips and repent in our sinful ways! And love the father for without him we would not have the savior Jesus Christ! Amen
  • BSP
    Verse 12 brings out that even if something is allowable we must make sure that we are not controlled by it. We must be in control of our time and how much time we devote to different things.

  • Woody
    KJV remains the only Bible I have ever read in my 62 years . It is the only Bible needed as God's word is most clear but if ever clarity is needed simply be silent and listen to God with your heart. Not one person is deserving of God's grace but he gave it to us anyway and through Jesus Christ we all have eternal salvation and shall inherit the kingdom of God and dwell in His house
  • Woody
    A very clear declaration that not even one has lived a life that would exclude them from those who shall not inherit the kingdom of God. We are instructed yet again to refrain from judging others. Jesus Christ gave his life for our salvation and through the grace of God we shall inherit the kingdom of God. It’s a promise to us by God. Our loving Father has infinite love for us and all are saved
  • Lilian
    We are pardoned and redeemed Jesus paid the price for us on the cross we must glorify him and praise Jesus and lift his name amen
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    We should be constantly reminded that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
  • Gabriel Kyei-Yeboah
    God want us to totally preserve our body for Him always.
  • Ray321
    It's better to Love then to judge.
  • A disciple
    "if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?" However it got started; the idea that we aren't supposed to use our brains or the discernment of God's Spirit in us to judge; is both against reality and all knowledge of the truth. How are we supposed to otherwise know whether we have a good or bad conscience toward God or toward each other, and to resist Satan?
  • Plummer harris
    I am greatful that the HOLY SPIRIT is inside of me it give me love so I can show someone else love AMEN,AMEN
