People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:35


Mt 10:35 I am come to set a man at variance against his father. This was not the Savior's object, but the effect. The conversion of individual members of the family would cause variance. In nearly all quarrels, except those about religion, the members of the same family stand together, but in religious feuds the family circle is often broken and its parts arrayed against each other.

    MATTHEW 10:37 he that loveth father or mother more than ME is not worthy of ME and he that loveth son or daughter more than ME is not worthy of ME *** ROMANS 6:16 know you not that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey his servants you are to whom you obey whether of sin unto death or of obedience unto righteousness JOHN 14:15 --IF-- you love ME --- keep MY commandments ---

    "And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved." Matthew 10:22 Coinciding with the transgressors coming to the full, and their casting away all the cords and breaking all the bands, in their furious rage and worthless imagination against the LORD and against His Anointed when they no longer are able to bear with the sound doctrine of Christ's Truth the only thing left for them, to deal with being disrespected and rejected by God is to turn all their forces toward taking away the righteous FROM AMONG THEM, WHO ARE GOOD AND ACCEPTED OF GOD. Everything in us which wants to scream with anger over their wicked perversion and injustice, and NO JUDGMENT must be held in patient endurance and self control even as God has patient endurance and self control and so in our patience we will overcome and gain our souls' salvation IN JESUS' MIGHTY NAME!
  • A disciple
    Simon the "Canaanite" seems to be a mistake in the KJV translation; since ALL the Apostles were Israelites, and were strictly brought up to keep separate from non Jews. Plus, more importantly; in the Greek it seems to indicate rather that this Simon was "from Cana" and not a Palestinian Canaanite! Read about all the explaining Peter had to when he was called to go preach to the house of Cornelius.
  • GOD IS AWESOMEQ
    Amen GOD IS GOOD AND ALWAYS WORTH TO ME NO MATTER WHAT HE IS MY FRIEND AND I WILL ALWAYS TRUST AND BELIEVE IN HIM ME AND MY FAMILY
  • BSP
    Verses 34 through 36- the Scriptural message is not to blame, but it is the rejection or opposition of unbelieving family members that causes the rifts or divisions.

    MATTHEW 10:16 BEHOLD I SEND YOU FORTH AS SHEEP IN THE MIDST OF WOLVES BE YOU THEREFORE WISE AS SERPENTS AND HARMLESS AS DOVES 2 TIMOTHY 2:24 AND THE SERVANT OF THE LORD MUST NOT STRIVE BUT BE GENTLE UNTO ALL MEN APT TO TEACH PATIENT 1 THESSALONIANS 2:7 BUT WE WERE GENTLE AMONG YOU ALL EVEN AS A NURSE CHERISHETH HER CHILDREN JAMES 1:16 DO NOT ERR MY BELOVED CHILDREN
