    Yeah! It's The Way an The Truth!
  • Matthew
    Please remember that the first generation has been punished by the water, but those who don't believe in Jesus and don't do his will will be punish by fire. Please if the lord warns you, come back to him and ask forgiveness and do his will (Luke 12:49).
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 20
    Jesus has just told a parable about a certain rich man. The rich man had more goods than he could store up, so he thought to himself, without being mindful of God, I shall build larger barns to bestow my goods. Then I will say to my soul, take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. Instead God said thou fool, this night, thy soul is required of thee, and to whom shall these goods be given? We have to remember God owns it all, and we are only stewards. We will have to give an account of our stewardship when we die. To whom much is given, much is required. It is wise to give those goods away while you are living, to the glory of God, and for the furtherance of His Kingdom. Beware of covetousness, for the life of a man does not consist in the abundance of the things that he has. Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, then all these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.
  • Kenneth for verse 20
    I feel it is telling us that all the riches you acquired during this life on earth will be completely worthless when you die. It also speaks to the fact that we know not the hour we are going to leave this life. Knowing this, I think we should put our focus on being ready for heaven at this time. Note that the passage said nothing about heaven or hell, but know you are going to one or the other for eternity. Believe me whatever you leave behind someone is going to enjoy it whether you like it or not.
  • Judy Hall for verse 24
    I love the Lord and Luke 12:24 assures me of his Love care for his people.
  • Jim Beatty for verse 27
    I've just started reading your post and other people's testimonies. I enjoy it very much. Would you consider putting the quotes from the "Complete Jewish Bible" by Dr. David H. Sterns on your post also. He is a Messianic Jew and brings a lot of light to the Word of God. Thank you J.A. Beatty aka THE-JAB

    Verses 51-53
    1. Simply stated Doctor Luke, through the leadership of the holy spirit, is verifying the fact of being a born again believer who has made a commitment to follow and obey the holy scriptures;
    2. This commitment will cause (cost) division not only among strangers, friends, distant relatives, but also those family members of your own immediate family that do not or have not made the same commitment that we true believers have made;
    3. This is one of several draw backs of being saved later in life rather than being raised in a bible believing, separated family;
    4. In the book of Matthew, Jesus likens the division to a sword (Matthew 10:34-39);
    5. This is usually a difficult path to trek, but trek we must if we are going to please our heavenly father.
  • The question is what does division mean in its general context? What I have just finished doing is researching the Hebrew versus Greek definitions of division! Through studying I will conclude in saying that we are not getting it because we are interpreting the Greek content when I believe we use the Hebrew definition it means distribution. Deliverance redeems after reviewing these meaning. One would say Deliverer and redeemer of the masses? To separate the few believers from those who are unbelievers.
  • Timothy Wayne George
    Luke 12:32 Fear not little flock, for it is the Father's good pleasure to give us the Kingdom. We must seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto us.
    When we remember the poor, and take up our cross daily we are laying up treasures in heaven that will not pass away. The only inheritance that we should be concerned about, is what is being stored up in heaven. Jesus is the judge, and He will have us to give an account of how we used the treasures that He gave us, for the glory of God. So be like the ravens, who neither sow or reap, and yet our heavenly Father provides for them. So how much greater are we than they?
  • Carolyn for verse 20
    I feel the Lord is teaching to store up your riches in Heaven, for on this earth your inheiritance is worthless unless you have inheirted the Kingdom of God through Jesus. That is the only true thing that matters for everything else will pass away.
  • Nana Ama
    Wow the words of Jesus is so inspiring. He revealed to us the kind of God we serve. He revealed God as a loving Father who know everything we need and provides them.He urges us not to worry about a thing and that we should just have faith and believe that our Father God is Good.
  • Sherylynn Taylor
    this is a great chapter this is the way Jesus walked to always be watching and praying and have your lamp filled with oil like the five wise virgins to keep focused on his coming allways looking. in Jesus Name i pray
  • Danny
    I'm sure that God loves me and you,it's just amazing how few people know that! because the love of God will keep you, how he said in Psalms 91 how he set his angels in charge of they!! this is divine protection, what more can you ask for, now tell somebody
  • Craig for verse 38
    In studying Scripture, it is essential, I think, to know of the background by which characters wpeak and act. I am very interested in learning more about such a background. The religious empirical thinking machine commonly called THE CHURCH is an empty, vain, blinding system of damnation concealing the truth and reinforcing error. If it takes the balance of the rest of my life, I should wish to unlearn what these false teachers imparted to me. In that sense I can only say, that Yahuweh (The original Character removed by such a wicked and erroneous system as I have described) is able to give me and others like me shomar the Hebrew word corresponding to our English WATCH and chachamah another Hebrew word corresponding to wisdom and tahor another Hebrew word meaning cleansing from such an erroneous and wicked church teaching as I have sat under, Craig

    Who measures how we;ve done in life And judges our success ? Our God, who gives rewards 2 those Who live n righteousness. God wants u 2 spend your time n treasure building His kingdom,not your own.
  • Andria for verse 28
    When things are tough in our lives we should remember this verse to keep us strong and know he cares. In these times and the way things are in life- tough. They were bad years ago too, in the years Jes
  • Royal
    My understanding is that we are living in the latter days and as Christians we need to be vigilant, holy and vocal on things pertaining to the Kingdom or the world will eat us alive
  • Aby
    i like Mom's comment here GOd Bless you maam for the thoughts you expressed are the same i have. Lord make me humble make me doer and not just a listener may all those who come in contact with me be able to see your love through my actions i just wish and hope Holy Spirit rains down on each of us believers who then can go ahead and tell the good news
    should be prepared because Christ will come like a thief no one the hour or time except God himself so we should keep on watching.
  • Mom
    We become so focused on the things we have; even some church people get really materialistic about clothing, cars, other marks of prestige and prosperity. It's great to try to look your best, but doesn't all that showiness intimidate and discourage other people from wanting to be a part of the body of Christ? And, like in the parable, you and the things you have acquired can come to a swift parting of the ways. We need to get our focus off the material and onto the spiritual. We need to be reaching out with the gospel to those who haven't heard it, or those who have but haven't taken a step of faith and taken Christ as their Savior. "Only one life, 'twill soon be past; only what's done for Christ will last."
  • I was shocked that alot of people didn't know there was an unforgivable sin in my church. this should be used more in sermons.
  • J.O. Smith for verse 5
    Interesting that only Young's Literal Bible has capitilized Him. The person to be feared is OBVIOUSLY GOD. I think I had either spent my preaching years overlooking this verse or understanding the "him" as being the devil, who,of course, does not have any power to cast offenders and breakers of God's Law into Hell. It is a Judgement reserved for the ONE that has been offended,namely THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
