Bible Commentary for Matthew 21:44

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 21:44


21:44 Whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken - Stumblers at Christ shall even then receive much hurt. He is said to fall on this stone, who hears the Gospel and does not believe. But on whomsoever it shall fall - In vengeance, it will utterly destroy him. It will fall on every unbeliever, when Christ cometh in the clouds of heaven. #Luke 20:18|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 21:44


Mt 21:44 Whoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken. Two fates are named for opposers in this verse: (1) those who fall on the stone shall be broken; (2) those on whom the stone shall fall shall be ground to powder. While the principle is general, the special application is to the Jewish opposers. Their "falling upon" the Stone (Christ) was the ruin of their nation. When the Stone "fell upon them", in the judgment he had predicted because they rejected him, they were ground to powder in the awful desolation that occurred about thirty-seven years later.

Discussion for Matthew 21:44

  • Foolish Pathetic Man on Matthew 21:44
    I begin to write to see if I can find Christ and If I can find our father, for I can't begin to know anything other then that Christ

    was crucified and that we deserve nothing but the punishment of Hell for our sins. And in the worst of our sins, the man that is broken before the lord,

    and begs for forgiveness and wishing to turn away from his filthiness has been saved from God with his Glory, and God does not love or forgive us

    because we deserve it, or that it is a payment due, but he does it out of his Glory alone. Bringing forth how dependent anything we hope to achieve is in

    his will, and his will alone.

    My heart is broken with how stupid I am, and my heart is broken with the sins that I have committed in either action or in thought. Where I thought my thoughts

    were whole and justified, just how muddy and deceptive they were. When my mind is on Jesus, his words, and his actions, and my lacking's there is a great

    sadness that I wish to escape, but by his grace I am saved. For the glory of God let these words go somewhere, and if they do I will not be silent of my writings.

    Men's wisdom lacks, because men think they are the center of it all for their consciousness. The carnal wise man does not begin to understand the price that Jesus paid.

    The pain he went through, the wrath of God and the glory of him forgiving the wicked that are on the rock. But let it be known that Jesus said "And whosoever

    shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder." No 5 minute confession and a swift decisive prayer is

    a breaking one's self upon that rock, and our wicked existence without God disciplining our disobedience takes no effort. But the brick that the builders rejected,

    Jesus Christ, that is the stone one must fall upon by his grace and glory, his words, his very deliverance by wisdom no heart had lived and uttered in perfection.

    This is what is wrong with us in Dec.10, 2020 the people r still falling, for they have not accepted the "Stone" which is Jesus Christ. Until the Holy Spirit fall upon them they will b falling. But what is so awesome God loves u in-spite of ur disobedience. For God see n knows all things therefore He has written ur life down in the 'Book of Life' b4 u were born, n u r turning ur pages daily.B aware of ur choices while u walk through this Valley of Shadow of Death, which is Satan Hell hole, a trap for God's people. No matter what ur trails n tribulations r, for they will come against u 'good r bad' but don't u never 'Lose ur faith in God'.Let it b a learning lesson to make u strong n increase the faith that God has given u.Everything He has given to His son Jesus, He has given to u, for u r a heir of Jesus Christ.Give thanks to God.Believe it Received it n Achieve it. Give God the glory thanking Him for grace n mercy which have set me free. No more shackles on me. I'll pray that u will let God break all ur chains n set u free!B blessed
