Discussion for Luke 11

  • Servant of God
    Sermon of Jesus, the man who loved God. These parables urge us to direct our supplication to God, from whom the wonders come forth. As Jonah, whose preaching caused the men, and women to repent. As Queen of Sheba, who sought wisdom from the wisest man alive. Woe to the lawyers, for they profit from the misery they inflict. Woe to the religious hiarchy, hypocrites in their complicity with Gov.

    LUKE 11:13 if you then being evil knowing how to give good gifts unto you children how much more shall your HEAVENLY FATHER give the holy spirit --- to them that ask HIM --- ACTS 5:32 and we are HIS witnesses of these things and so is also the holy spirit whom GOD hath given to them that obey HIM 1 PETER 1:23 being born again not of corruptible seed but of incorruptible by the word of GOD ......
  • Brianna for vs. 32
    We see a parent on how God carries out punishment. Just as how God sent out Jonah to warn the Ninevites before destruction was to be, so today God warns us. The time we have now is the time we need to take to repent and draw closer to our Heavenly Father Jehovah. May we use this time to study the Bible, and come to an accurate knowledge of the truth.

    The Lord's prayer is significant and shall be honored.
  • 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.
  • A disciple
    "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!"
