Discussion for Matthew 4:7

  • Demetrice A Sellers on Matthew 4:7
    God is not slack concerning, his promises. God meant what he say. God made Male and female in the beginning. If a man leave his father house, he should cleave to his wife for life. God is not the author of confusion. God made us male and female. GOD made the man first, then he took a rib out of man and made woman. I'm a single woman. I will marry a man, or I will not marry

    Matthew 4:6.

    Lahniya McKithen is looking for a better understanding of Matthew 4:6.

    The word 'lest' means 'in order that you not'. An example of lest is when you bring an umbrella in order to avoid getting wet.

    It means: with the intention of preventing something undesirable to avoid the risk of something.

    In Matthew 4:6 it meant that angels would protect Christ that He would not hurt his feet against a stone.

  • Andy G van den Berg - in Reply on Matthew 4:7
    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what by nature people have been conditioned to believe in. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. Actually it means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

  • John L QUESTION ON 10 COMMANDMENTS on Matthew 4:7
    There are two sets of Ten Commandments. Exodus 20:1-17 and Exodus 34:10-28.

    TWICE Moses went upon the mountain and did not eat or drink for 40 days!

    The 10 Commandments of Exodus 34:10-28 are specifically referred to as "the ten commandments" (Exodus 34:28, Deuteronomy 4:13, 10:4)

    There are differences in the two sets of Commandments. Which set are we to follow? Are we to combine them?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 4:7
    Google the Ten Commandments: obey those.
