Bible Commentary for Matthew 18:35

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 18:35


18:34 His lord delivered him to the tormentors - Imprisonment is a much severer punishment in the eastern countries than in ours. State criminals, especially when condemned to it, are not only confined to a very mean and scanty allowance, but are frequently loaded with clogs or heavy yokes, so that they can neither lie nor sit at ease: and by frequent scourgings and sometimes rackings are brought to an untimely end. Till he should pay all that was due to him - That is, without all hope of release, for this he could never do. How observable is this whole account; as well as the great inference our Lord draws from it: The debtor was freely and fully forgiven; He wilfully and grievously offended; His pardon was retracted, the whole debt required, and the offender delivered to the tormentors for ever. And shall we still say, but when we are once freely and fully forgiven, our pardon can never be retracted? Verily, verily, I say unto you, So likewise will my heavenly Father do to you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 18:35


Mt 18:35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, etc. Observe Christ says, "My heavenly Father", not "your". God will not be their heavenly Father unless they emulate his spirit of mercy, and are as ready to forgive others their trespasses as he is to forgive their own. "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy" (Mt 5:7). "As ye mete to others it shall be measured to you" (Mt 7:2). "Forgive us our trespasses even as we forgive those who trespass against us "(Mt 6:12). "Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap" (Ga 6:7). If we are hard and unforgiving to our fellow-men, we can never expect our heavenly Father to overlook our own sins. It is a vital doctrine that we, by our own mind towards others, determine what shall be the mind of God towards us.

    That means we cant receive His blessings until we 4give others who wronged us. we may pay all d tithe offerings fast den pray but nothing will ever move God until we 4give our feow human here on earth. which means at the end no HEAVEN after all the time spent praying going to church just bcuz of unforgiven heart. MAY GOD HELP US IN JESUS NAME.
