Bible Commentary for Matthew 17:21

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 17:21


17:21 This kind of devils - goeth not out but by prayer and fasting - What a testimony is here of the efficacy of fasting, when added to fervent prayer! Some kinds of devils the apostles had cast out before this, without fasting.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 17:21


Mt 17:21 This kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. Compare Mr 9:29. Only by devout waiting before the Lord for strength. Such strength is always needful to the victories of faith. Often, too, we have demons, envy, pride, covetousness, a revengeful spirit, that must be cast out by prayer.

Discussion for Matthew 17:21

  • Raina on Matthew 17:21
    Prayer and fasting must be the believers life style.You prepare yourself in power and strength and this is only made possible by prayer and fasting.We are only able to drive away or cast out devils by the ability of power we possess in the inner man.If you are not able to cast them out,it means you are not used to fasting and prayer.Remember that Jesus will always go on the mountain ....to pray So you dont wait for a sick person to appear before you ...determine the demon and go away into fasting ,maybe before you would have come the person will die The book says ..when thou fails in the day of adversity thy strength is small. It means the strength of the apostles were small to deal with that demon So fast and pray to prepare yourself against that day Remember also that you cannot pray and fast without Faith. BLESSED

  • Nkosinathi Ngulube on Matthew 17:21
    Unbelief itself is a devil that hinders any spiritual progress.it is removed throu ' prayer and fasting.
  • Justin on Matthew 17:21
    for us to serve God truly, we must do the will of God voluntarily not out of any peer pressure. fasting is regarded as the most difficult part in Christianity but believe me if God enters with you its not even easy to notice that you have not eaten for unusual hours which you are not used to. hence we must first invite God to give us extra strength to go through it even if hard. may God be with us all everytime we do it.
  • Luna on Matthew 17:21
    I love Shawna 's comment, how true it is. We need to fast, meditate on the Word of God, and be still and open in order to receive Word of Knowledge from God.
  • Patrucua on Matthew 17:21
    For this verse to be omitted by some translations it must be a pretty powerful tool against Satan
  • Errol Forde on Matthew 17:21
    PRAYER AND FASTING BRINGS THE PHYSICAL BODY INTO SUBJECTION, AND ALLOWED SPIRITUAL MAN TO FUSE WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT. HENCE SUPERNATURALLY CONQUERING THE PHYSICAL OBSTICALS IN LIFE, AND ALLOWING THE WILL OF GOD TO BE DONE IN EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN,IN OTHER WORDS AT THIS TIME IT IS NO LONGER YOU THAT LIVETH BUT JESUS CHRIST THE ANOINTED ONE WHO LIVES BREATH AND SPEEK THROUGH YOU, THERFORE ALL THINGS NOW BECOME POSIBLE THROUGH CHRIST WHO LIVE IN YOU FOR THAT DURATION OF TIME.
