Discussion for Matthew 14

  • John B.
    Poor John, one shouldn't redress kings. Especially over their love affairs. But God will judge the kings of this earth, for they are but men and in God's eyes lower than the mendicant begging for bread for hunger. Jesus was in the Glory of the Father as he prayed alone atop of the mountain. He beckons Peter, "come" and saves him as he falters. Her daughter dances seductively before the Kng

    Jesus asked, but whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, that art the Christ,The Son of The living God. and Jesus answered and said unto him, blessed art thou Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood have not revealed it onto thee but My Father which is in heaven. Matthew 16:15-17

    Many follow the Lord Jesus for many reasons. Many of those same "followers" have almost as many ideas, who Jesus the Son of man is. But whom do you say that He is? Those same "many" were the ones whom the Lord said, "but to THEM it is not given (to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven)." Why? Why to some, and not to all? Because they do not convert! Their heart is calloused not to perceive.

    It raises the question between doubt and faith. But do you have faith in God, whom you haven't seen? You have faith in Jesus, who hasn't been seen for 2017 years! Jesus was sent by God. Listen, his doctrine wasn't his own but the Father who sent him. That is why God granted him Power to overcome sin. To overcome gravity. To overcome fear and doubt. Jesus was always praying to God
