People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:7


Mt 10:7 Preach, . . . The kingdom of heaven is at hand. John the Baptist, and Christ also, had preached, "The kingdom is at hand" (Mt 3:2 4:17). It had not yet been inaugurated. So the apostles were still to preach. It was near, but not in existence. There was no such charge in the second commission. Then "all power . . . in heaven and in earth" (Mt 28:18) was in the hands of Christ. He became King after he suffered, and his kingdom was inaugurated on earth on the day of Pentecost. When he was "lifted up" (Joh 3:14), he became King.

    Disciple; I'm sorry for having a bad reaction; forgive me. I know I'm not the only disciple, and I shouldn't object if anyone else wants to use the same for writing on here. Again, please forgive me; I'm sorry.

    I did not write the previous post with the similar name. It looks like someone wants to be an impostor, and misdirect with subtle words! "A stage player." But to give my thoughts on this great portion of scripture; Jesus doesn't send out to proselytize, like the Pharisees; but to announce the Glad Tidings, and preach that men should repent; instructing them to keep all that Jesus has commanded us.
  • Disciple
    Jesus instructing his disciples and therefore us as well as to what our priorities should be. Nothing of this world exceeds in importance the mission of faith and belief in the word. It seem that proselytizing is their mission but for many who have not matured in the way, it would be ineffective and subject them to scorn. I remain an anonymous servant of God figuring that a man of faith is...

    It is important that we deny ourselves and let Christ live within us. It is not about us but it is all about JESUS

    MATTHEW 10:19 BUT WHEN THEY DELIVER YOU UP TAKE NO THOUGHT HOW OR WHAT YOU SHALL SPEAK FOR IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU IN THAT SAME HOUR WHAT YOU SHALL SPEAK *** 10:20 FOR IT IS NOT YOU THAT SPEAK BUT THE SPIRIT OF YOUR FATHER WHICH SPEAKETH IN YOU
  • Wayne
    The eyes of the Lord are over the righteous and His ears are open to their prayers but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. He that committeth sin is of the devil. For the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil. We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not.
