Discussion for Luke 14

  • Obbie Beal
    34, Jesus knew, because of sin we became unfit and useless for GOD s purpose. We lost the purpose we were created for, see Ecclesiastes 12:13. But GOD through Jesus, see John 3:16-21, again makes available GOD s purpose available to you and I, plus, through Jesus SALVATION is available to us., thereby we can be at the Marriage-Supper-Of-the-Lamb, Revelation 19:9.
  • Obbie Beal
    Luke 14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. Note: Jesus delivered John 3:16-21 to them us, and Jesus knows HE must return to the Father, so HE entrust to those who will, too continue delivering John 3:16-21 as one of HIS disciples. Forsaking all by living according to Jehovah GOD word.
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 28-32, Jesus knew the importance of strategic-planning as it relates to Salvation, so Jesus taught us verse 28-32 as examples of strategic planning thereby we can understand there is always a cost to be considered as we live our life day-by-day, especially the cost required living as a Disciple-Of-Christ.
  • I AM THAT MICHAEL ISAAC DALE:
    The wicked say, Jesus knows he is on His way to the cross, and, Jesus is on His way to the cross thereby providing Salvation to the world, Man shews his evil intent but confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? It is written, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
  • Obbie Beal
    26-27 is given by Jesus to us to be taken into consideration. Note: Jesus is on His way to the cross thereby providing Salvation to the world, never-the-less on this particular day Jesus give to us two of His standards that must be taken into consideration, as it relate to Salvation.
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 16-24, He prepared a Great Supper and many were bidden, but they had so much to do. So many others was Sought-Out and allowed to fill the seat of the bidden. See Revelation 19:9. Note: Jesus knows he is on His way to the cross, so His mind is on The Kingdom Of GOD.
