<-- Back to Luke chapter 12

 


A disciple's comment on 2/26/2018, 12:03pm...

"..Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known." We repent of our sins and begin from that day forward to live with our back to the world and all our old ways, and start reading our Bibles every day, and change our behavior. Over time we experience all outward show being burned up.

 


Eutychus's comment on 2/24/2018, 3:29pm...

Vs. 47, servant beaten with many stripes...Vs. 48, servant beaten with few stripes. Differences of punishment, according to behavior. Hebrews 11:35, "and others were tortured, NOT ACCEPT ING DELIVERANCE; that they might OBTAIN A BETTER RESURRECTION:" Differences of reward...All this makes our casual attitude toward spiritual life, something of a concern. Will we be rewarded big, or rewarded small?

 


Servant of God's comment on 1/20/2018, 6:51am...

There is division on earth, as Yeshusa has said he brings to earth, because his message is pure doctrine of the Father. The wedding from which he returns is a union unbreakable with the Father. Few on earth are prepared as represented by one who built greater barns to contain his stuff but was not rich toward God. This very day your Soul is required of you by the Father, blessed be He, always

Avigayil; You bring up a very important point; which, unfortunately, is too much neglected in the most elementary teaching of Christians. A parable is a short story that uses familiar events to illustrate a religious or ethical point (Collins Dictionary). Jesus said, "Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God..Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?"

 


Avigayil's comment on 1/05/2018, 1:51pm...

For me, the verses do contain hidden meaning. They are parables. They weren't meant for everyone to understand. The disciples had to have the words you are reading revealed to them. They had to ask Yeshua what they meant. The Word is "living and active"...we need to ask Him to reveal these hidden treasures to us as well. See Jeremiah 33:3, and then 1 Thess 5:1-9. What times and seasons?

 


A disciple's comment on 12/31/2017, 10:25am...

"Fear not, little flock for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." The last day of the year is here once more and with it the last Chapters of our M'Cheyne's Daily Bible Reading Calendar: 2 Chronicles 36 Revelation 22 Malachi 4 John 21. Each of these Chapters marks a distinct dividing of times, yet nothing that indicates a finality or end altogether. For our God and all His ways are eternal. The things we know and experience feel like they will be this way forever and we can only imagine what might happen if they were changed or gone. But God makes everything perfect and the earth shall in due time be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea and all the world shall praise His wonderful works and terrible doings toward the children of men, when His finished plan is brought completely to light in its perfection. In the meantime, He deals with us with gentleness and pity, little by little bringing about His will in us, and in the world, according to what we can bear, and as the times require judging and having mercy, to keep the wicked from his evil imagination, and letting the righteous grow in grace and knowledge and maturity in the Spirit. Every time has its purpose according to Him that makes all things and proves us by His Word.

"...for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." To often we wonder about the millionaires and billionaires in this world and look up to them in awe, but that is not how God looks at us. Seek God first and he will supply all our needs. What a powerful message.

 


Stephen Botts's comment on 10/11/2017, 12:41pm...

Verse 25: "And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?"

This does not mean adding height. This means that by taking thought, you cannot prolong your life. You can't add one second to your life, so the Lord Jesus warns us to be ready always.

 


A disciple's comment on 9/14/2017, 9:13am...

"And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?" The thoughts of men are that their possessions and wealth make their greatness: and so idolatry is one of the root sins and causes of all evil in the world. Neither our possessions nor our vain thinking makes us anything more than men.

 


Emanuel Fernandes's comment on 9/13/2017, 1:10pm...

I dont know what means but its not purgatory or reincarnation or anything between heaven and hell( apart from your physical life) its appointed of men once to die after this the judgement its heaven or hell thats it!

 


A disciple's comment on 8/31/2017, 1:46pm...

Paul; clearly the Lord here is talking about repentance and forgiveness, and having the wisdom to be prepared to meet our Maker! It only distracts from the intended point to try to find hidden meanings in things like whether this is referring to Purgatory. A good rule for understanding the Scriptures is to read them with respect to the whole context of what was written and apply that to ourselves.

 


Paul's comment on 8/30/2017, 3:57pm...

Is verse 59 referring to a pergatory? If not, what does it mean?

 


BSP's comment on 8/10/2017, 12:07pm...

Verse 34: What we truly treasure in life is where our heart is. In our heart we will want to pursue that treasure.

 


BSP's comment on 7/31/2017, 8:19am...

Verse 13: This man had the opportunity to actually meet Jesus in person and ask him questions and learn from him. He chose to focus on himself and material things.

 


BSP's comment on 7/26/2017, 6:53am...

Verse 20: This man's material things could not save his life and would not benefit him after his death. We need to develop a balanced view of material things.

"Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings (assarions), and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows." An assarion was 1/10th of a drachma, and in today's market a Greek drachma is 0.0034165810711665 dollars. Five sparrows was a very poor person's dinner. None is too small to God!

2 TIMOTHY 4:2 PREACH THE WORD BE INSTANT IN SEASON OUT OF SEASON REPROVE REBUKE EXHORT WITH ALL LONGSUFFERING AND DOCTRINE --4:3-- FOR THE TIME WILL COME WHEN TEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE BUT AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS SHALL THEY HEAP TO THEMSELVES TEACHERS HAVING ITCHING EARS ***EPHESIANS 5:8 FOR YOU WERE SOMETIMES DARKNESS BUT NOW YOU ARE LIGHT IN THE LORD WALK AS CHILDREN OF LIGHT***

 


BSP's comment on 7/13/2017, 6:09am...

Thinking of how tiny a sparrow is and how we may not even notice them, this verse is very heartwarming. No matter how much we feel we don't matter or how small we feel, Jehovah God notice everything thing about us and he values individuals.

 


Christine Lang's comment on 7/13/2017, 4:53am...

My comment is, When we sin, and we are convicted, I don't believe its God telling us it's imminent doom...However, I do believe it is a warning to stop doing what we are doing, because if we continue that behavior, Yes, imminent doom will eventually come. You don't want to scare your viewers, you want to help them to understand, especially Newcomers! Draw them in, not scare them away. I'm a firm believer, and a sinner as we all are. It needs to be conveyed that we are saved by Grace, but that we need to come to the foot of the cross and ask for forgiveness to receive it. Thank you!:

 


BSP's comment on 7/12/2017, 1:15pm...

Verse 2: No matter how much one may try to hide a certain action, this verse shows that God will make sure that all things are revealed and dealt with.

 


Lu2677's comment on 6/16/2017, 3:14pm...

Steve Marrow, Amen. So, fearing the Lord with trembling before his word has been established. "after He hath killed" Do you believed he kills people as in; wars, 911, heart attacks, etc.?

 


Steve morrow's comment on 6/16/2017, 6:51am...

LU2627 AND ALL---LUKE 12:5 BUT I WILL FOREWARN YOU WHOM YOU SHALL FEAR FEAR HIM WHICH AFTER HE HATH KILLED HATH POWER TO CAST INTO HELL YEA I SAY UNTO YOU FEAR HIM ***REVELATION 19:5 AND A VOICE CAME OUT OF THE THRONE SAYING PRAISE OUR GOD ALL YOU HIS SERVANTS AND YOU THAT FEAR HIM BOTH SMALL AND GREAT **** WHOM DO YOU SERVE MAN OR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST****

 


Wendy Ann's comment on 5/24/2017, 12:16pm...

It please Father to give us His Kingdom, this reminds me of Matt 6:33 seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and all other things shall be added.. As a disciple of Christ, I honesty think that throughout our Lives here on Earth, 2 things we should seek. .As of Matt 6:33 GOD'S kingdom and His Righteousness. . As we do this Father is pleased to give us the Kingdom

 


Lu2677's comment on 5/17/2017, 6:14pm...

Luke 12;1-5 Jesus warns me; and I trust him. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.I hope with all my heart that I will never forget it, reject it, or speak against it, If the Lord is willing he will continue to give me understanding in this matter, I have his peace in this. His mercy endures forever. Every word of God is pure. There is no fear in love, I love him and I fear him,trembling

 


Peter A. Okebukola's comment on 5/12/2017, 12:04am...

This chapter is exceedingly rich in the Words of Jesus calling us to service, to know that He cares for us in spite of our frailties and failings and to be ever watchful for He could return for His Bride any time.
