People's Bible Notes for Matthew 20:34


Mt 20:34 Jesus . . . touched their eyes. The faith of the blind men had saved them. Compare Mr 10:52 Lu 18:42. Faith saved. The blind Bartimaeus (1) asked about Jesus as he passed; (2) cried to him as the Son of David, the Messiah; (3) asked for mercy; (4) kept on crying when they tried to stop him; (5) when permitted, sprang up and hurried to Jesus; (6) asked of him to receive his sight. This is faith in action.

    God looks at all of us as equals. His reward will not depend on how long we have been Christians. Even new converts are valued and will receive the same eternal life as those who were converted long time ago

    verse 1-16 Jesus teach us more about the 'ways' of Jehovah GOD These 'way" of GOD' are already established predestined by and for GOD's glory and honor. My opinion, personal belief, ..., ..., DO NOT MATTER as it relates to those 'ways' of GOD example 16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
  • I am that Michael Isaac Dale
    My Holy Father exposes all hypocrisy. Ye mock the Son of man before saying, My heart has already shown me where I will be, in darkness gnashing of teeth not dwelling in light. I will never give up nor stop loving God and Yeshua my savior. (Nay. For ye cannot love GOD except ye repent and confess the Son.) It is written, The LORD preserves ALL them that love him: but ALL the wicked will he destroy.
