Discussion for Luke 11

  • John919
    Many miss this: That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; Before this generation was over in 70 AD Jerusalem was over run and the Temple was destroyed. Many that were slain in the past for serving God in Truth were raised from the dead and joined with their bodies. Matthew 27: 52 and 53.

    "But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it." A woman in the crowd lifted up her voice, perhaps thinking that she is boldly confessing and honoring the Lord by praising His mother but what is she really doing? Another attempt of the devil to get people's eyes off of Jesus, and on to a fictitious Queen of heaven? The spirit of the pagan subtly trying to make a road in among the Saints AGAIN? What kind of spirit was crying out, O blessed Mama of Jesus! Yes Mary was blessed AMONG women but not ABOVE any of them! Jesus the Son of God come in flesh, HE IS THE BLESSED ONE! And ALL our affection and praise is to HIM! So His response to her immediately puts away all idolaters as ignorance, confusion, and worthless making us all equal both with respect to Him and toward each other: and the "Blessed" AMONG us "They that hear the Word of God and keep it!"

    This shows that it is not enough to read the Word of God, we must also keep it by applying what we learn in our lives.

    TAKE HEED THEREFORE THAT THE LIGHT WHICH IS IN THEE BUT NOT DARKNESS. FOR ME THE HONEST AND RIGHTEOUS NEVER HIDE OR SCATTER IN THE DARK. THE GOOD GUYS NEVER RUN. BELIEVE STRONGER LOVE HARDER.
  • SHEREE CONSTANZO
    IN REGARDS TO THE VERSE I BELIEVE IF YOU GIVE NOT ONLY WITH ALL THE LOVE IN YOUR HEART GOD WILL ALWAYS GIVE US MORE THAN WHAT WE DESERVE. NOT ONLY WORSHIP GOD LIVE HIM EVERYDAY YOU LIVE .
