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.

    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.
