Wesley's Notes for Matthew 10:33

10:33-34 Whosoever shall deny me before men - To which ye will be strongly tempted. For Think not that I am come - That is, think not that universal peace will be the immediate consequence of my coming. Just the contrary. Both public and private divisions will follow, wheresoever my Gospel comes with power. Ye - this is not the design, though it be the event of his coming, through the opposition of devils and men. #Luke 12:51|.

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:33

Mt 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men. The Jews denied him when they rejected him as Messiah. All who refuse to receive him as their Lord deny him still. The disciple who, through the cares of the world, turns away from Christian life, denies him. Him will I also deny. Those who receive him will be received; those who reject him will be rejected; those who confess him will be confessed, and those who deny him, denied. See 2Ti 2:12.

Discussion for Matthew 10

  • A disciple
    Emanuel; To ME, it is sin to be a Sports Fan. If someone else can sit with a good conscience toward God, while being barraged by the worldliness and flesh and utterly spirit-draining idle chatter... I have to say I doubt it! I used to enjoy sports as a kid, and am content to leave it with my childhood in the past. I have determined to sanctify myself to the Lord Jesus Christ and the Narrow Way.
  • A disciple
    Emanuel; what is there to defend? I just think very strongly that we should not not let ourselves be drawn into the same idle interests as those of the world who don't know any better. "Little children, keep yourselves from idols." The Lord has called us and sanctified us to be His witnesses, to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world, that the Holy Spirit in us should convict men.
  • A disciple
    I wrote another post, about the topic of whether God cares about the Super Bowl, but it wasn't put up. I know, and we all know, that there are MULTITUDES of Christians who have no problem with watching sports and enjoying recreation and leisure activities. But when is it too much, and ungodly, and something unbecoming of a Saint? As Christians we are NOT OF THE WORLD, and must be separate from it!
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    who cares if a sparrow dies and hits the ground who cares about the numbers of hair that I have on my head. GOD CARES THATS WHO!. ALL THINGS ARE CREATED BY HIM AND FOR HIM. The homeless person on the street and the preacher in the pulpit BOTH ARE BEING USED OF GOD WHETHER THEY KNOW IT OR NOT THERE BOTH FULLING GODS COUNSEL! We need to study to show thyself approved unto God
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    Its not sin to watch sports most carnal Christians would think it is. Im under liberty not grace the lost are under grace. As long as Im not under the power of worshipping it.Besides you missed the point READ not skim my comment. If you think God is not involved or care who wins IN ANY SPORT you dont know God he worketh ALL THINGS into his counsel NOTHING IS INSIGNIFICANT to God
  • A disciple
    Emanuel (cont.); I have seen it everywhere that there is not even a wince of conscience among most Christians about following sports. Why doesn't it seem to bother any of them about the permeating ungodliness and easy uncleanness that surrounds that whole business; but they sit there stupidly watching, and carry on their empty talk with neighbors and coworkers, as if it is some neutral area?
