People's Bible Notes for Matthew 28:3


Mt 28:3 His countenance was like lightning. Was bright like lightning. Compare Ex 34:29 Mt 17:2 Re 1:14. And his raiment white as snow. White is the emblem of purity. So was the Savior's raiment at the Transfiguration, and the robes of the saints as described in Revelation.

    WE JUST NEED TO DO WHAT GOD COMMANDED AND LEAVE THE RESULTS AND OUTCOME IN HIS HANDS...PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE AND LET THE HOLY SPIRIT CONVICT AND DRAW LOST SINNERS TO CHRIST....

    Abba Father have given all power into Jesus hands heaven and earth. Thank you Jesus for the blood you shed for us you are my life Lord my Rock and my Salvation Jehova Jireh the Lord my Provider Shalom i will praise you Jesus i love you Lord forever amen
  • A disciple
    Fred; no one is looking for arguing about doctrine; but when we have been given something from the Lord, it is for the benefit of the whole assembly, and it is our duty in love and faithfulness to reprove, rebuke, correct, instruct, exhort one another in the Spirit of the truth; for the end of all things is at hand! How much time did the Lord Jesus devote to teaching THAT WE DO, AND NOT ONLY HEAR!
  • Fred -“saved by the blood”
    Brian,Redeemed, a disciple. Ephesians 2:8-9 I am sure you all know it along the Romans road. I am so blessed to not be wrapped up in looking for argumentative dialogue of Gods word. The salvation thru Christ is free to anyone that believes on Christ and what he did on the cross. It is simply up to each person to accept or deny Christ. He is risen,rejoice and share the gospel
  • H
    And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Who gave it to him.
  • A disciple
    A sectarian man; a heretic; one who separates himself from sound doctrine and accepted truth according to the Scriptures. What was once understood as the Narrow Way and the Strait Gate, has turned to rather pampering of and apologizing for the weakness of the flesh, instead of mortifying its desires by the life of the Spirit. Many think they do God service but are in fact working against His Word.
