People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:36


Mt 10:36 A man's foes [shall be] they of his own household. This has been verified thousands of times. Many a convert has been turned out of home and banished by kindred, because he had confessed Christ.

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!
