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

    Matt. 10:34 - " ... not ... peace, but a sword." I, too, thought of a literal sword, but the Lord showed me Eph. 6:17 - " ..... the sword ..... which is the word of God." And Lk. 12:51 corroborates Matt. - " .... but rather division." The Bible does cause division - between families, friends and churches.

    He would have forgiven him, but like a lot of us we let the enemy put In our head that the Farther will not forgive. Which is a lie.

    Judas Iscariot; can you see how Jesus loved him? He KNEW he would betray Him (even before Judas was born) yet He gave him every chance to see the light. And - after Judas betrayed Him - he maybe did see the light, but either couldn't believe he could be forgiven or God let him go. I personally believe he could have repented. We need to be very careful what we do and say.

    LORD WE NEED U TODAY MORE THAN EVER TO STRENGTHEN THE BODY OF CHRIST TO BE MORE LIKE JESUS AND NOT LIKE THE WORLD!!! ITS ALL OR NOTHING! Mathew 10:33 "But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in Heaven." JESUS ACKNOWLEDGED HIS FATHER BY LIVING A LIFE OF LOVE AND OBEDIENCE! AMEN! GLORY BE TO GOD!
