Wesley's Notes for Matthew 12:30


12:30 He that is not with me is against me - For there are no neuters in this war. Every one must be either with Christ or against him; either a loyal subject or a rebel. And there are none upon earth, who neither promote nor obstruct his kingdom. For he that does not gather souls to God, scatters them from him.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 12:30

Discussion for Matthew 12

  • Penni Carter
    It is so easy to get comfortable in idle chatter, but how can we say that we are good and love the Lord? God sees and hears what comes out of our mouths, and out of the abundance of our heart our mouth speaks. We are nothing but filthy rags just idly saying nothing about nothing. Although we may speak quietly where we think no one else can hear, God does! I know our world must repent for idle talk
  • A disciple
    Emanuel; I think it might be best to just let you be with your ideas for now; seeing you really don't seem to want anything else. The doctrine that proves sound is that which will support our overcoming this present evil world; both now, and in the Day of God. Let me leave you with this recommendation only; that you study carefully 2 Peter, especially the first chapter; as it is the foundation.
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    why dont you pray to God for discernment I actually study and meditate on the bible by reading these comments I see most of you just read it .THIS IS NOT MANS WORDS THIS IS GODS WORD. Reading is not good enough I medtitate DAILY. Study to shew thyself approved which your not dont know if your saved or a babe in christ. NOT A NOVICE BEING LIFTED UP WITH PRIDE!
  • A disciple
    Emanuel; I did read through carefully all that you wrote; and I'm saying that you are very mistaken! Jesus being here on earth or in heaven has nothing to do with whether men let Satan enter their hearts to blaspheme the Spirit. And the Lord said precisely without any room for confusion or misunderstanding: The Blasphemy of the Spirit HAS NO FORGIVENESS; not in this world, nor the next one coming!
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    If you actually read not skim my comments you would get my point. I said there is no way to blasphem and not be forgiven. You can blaspheme the Holy Ghost and be forgiven. The Pharisee we're not to be forgiven because Jesus was physically here on earth. That's the difference! Charamastic believe YOU CANT BE FORGIVEN TODAY WHICH IS WRONG. Does anyone TRULY LABOR IN THE WORD ANYMORE?
  • Jen
    2 Timothy 2:15.. There are different dispensations in the Bible, and the gospels are not written to Christians during the church age that we are now in. The blasphemy of the Holy Ghost was only possible to Jesus Christ when He was on the earth in bodily form; not the indwelling person of the Holy Ghost in born again believers today. It will also be when He comes on the earth again.
