People's Bible Notes for Matthew 26:45


Mt 26:45 Sleep on now, and take [your] rest. I look upon these words as reproachful. The hour when he needed their watchfulness and sympathy was past. They had failed to guard in the hour when he wished to be alone with God. Now the moment is at hand; the soldiers are approaching.

    "Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her." While sitting among the true disciples, and beholding how the righteous and wise really love the Lord; what liars and hypocrites the hater's of the Lord are, with their self righteous indignation! But God honors the poor in spirit!

    Gen.1:26,Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness. Father, Son, Holy Ghost, Christ's very own words.
  • Irene123
    Knowing what I know now about God's word, the KJV Bible - that it IS God-breathed, inviable, and not the ideas of man about what and who he thinks God is: I would NEVER say there was a 'mistake' in it, of spelling or what is said. I have for myself, proven the inerrancy of God's Word. It all, O.T. and N.T., works together as ONE story - just as God is one, not three.
