Discussion for Matthew 18:20

  • Harold Willett on Matthew 18:20
    I feel sorry for so many people. God's words are alive. If his book the Bible had legs it would walk. As I read the different things that people say to interpret God's words for the most part there all Wrong. Where to or three are gathered together in my name there i an in the midst of them. The Holy Spirit guides me into it's meaning for me not for anyone else but me. Same goes for anyone else that reads his words San all for guidance. Myself and Jesus are two by itself. When I'm in prayer when God i do it through Jesus guided by the spirit of Jesus that's already inside of me. Jesus is with me when I'm before God. Many do not understand this because only those of us that have a really true relationship with Jesus can understand these things. So many go to church thinking this does it relationship wise but it does nothing at all nothing. People understand the word relationship but don't understand it when it comes to there salvation. It's not about being perfect I'm not in not even close it's about a true honest relationship when him. I don't even go to any church Anymore. I'll backslide if I do and I know it. I'd like to go preach but no one will have me I've tried before many times. People are afraid of the TRUTH and FACTS. Common Sense is the best way I know to describe God's words when reading them. Lead me not into temptation but deliver me from evil and the Holy Spirit along with God's words did that for me. Let the Holy Spirit be your guide no one else no networks no preachers no friends him and his only it you won't get your deliverance ever. If I had time to share my testimony here you'd call me a Liar. No one lives like I do has what I have and does what I do no one Period. I race one of the most expensive cars on the planet and do it with hardly nothing. How? It's called being Blessed and that's a totally different story of how God works through Jesus and his Holy Spirit. It's Holy a reason. I will come speak anywhere I'm invited. Just get me there @bac

    Greetings Louis - Jesus said that almost 2,000 years ago about where 2 or 3 are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Most Bible scholars say Jesus died around 32-33 AD.
  • Jim on Matthew 18:20
    Why does Man always try to use their imagination to try to interprit what is there plain for us to read already,read it again,,,do not add to or take away so sayeth the lord.
  • Gary Sparks on Matthew 18:20
    This Christ 's plan for the formation of an assembly to worship Him in His name. The plan of Christ is for believers to agree together, to unite in faith together, and to ask together to receive from the Father. This may happen with 2 or 222.
  • Dew on Matthew 18:20
    The verse is in the discipline chapter.We are all sinners saved by grace alone.When we go to a sinning brother ,two or three we take Christ with us in His authority
  • MockingBird on Matthew 18:20
    1st John 5 :7,8 There are three that bear record in heaven : the Father : the Word : and the Holy Ghost , and these three are one. There are three that bear witness in earth we are made from earth the spirit , the ,water , and the blood , Where two or three are gathered together. The Church : His body : His people . He is in all.
  • Dmhedden on Matthew 18:20
    In Him dead, buried, risen with Him. In preceding verses, it was about witnesses as relates to law and testifying in court or before a judge. Here it is about two or three witnesses of the reality of being in Him, and being a fulfillment of His name and power to save, utterly, practically Holy by the Spirit of Holiness that raised Him up and us, now to live in Him.
  • Steve on Matthew 18:20
    when there are two of more gathered to worship christ and are teaching his gospel then is his spirit there the holy ghost or holy spirit to confirm the truth of what is being taught, if two or three are gathered and are teaching of christ but but is not in harmony with christs teachings then his spirit will not be there. now i understand why there are so meany different churches today. no one really understands what they are reading.
