People's Bible Notes for Matthew 7:1

Mt 7:1 The Sermon on the Mount (concluded) SUMMARY OF MATTHEW 7: Motes and Beams. Casting Pearls before Swine. Asking and Receiving. The Golden Rule. The Broad and Strait Gates. Wolves in Sheep's Clothing. The Tree Known by Its Fruits. The Kingdom Entered by Obedience. The Wise and Foolish Builders. The Wonderful Teacher. Judge not, that ye be not judged. The term "judge" is used in more than one sense, but Christ's meaning is plain. (1) He does not prohibit the civil judgment of the courts upon evil doers, for this is approved throughout the whole Bible. (2) He does not prohibit the judgment of the church, through its officers, upon those who walk disorderly, for both he and the apostles have enjoined this. (3) He does not forbid those private judgments that we are compelled to form the wrong-doers, for he himself tell us that we are to judge men by their fruits. (See Mt 7:15-20.) What he designs to prohibit is rash, uncharitable judgments, a fault-finding spirit, a disposition to condemn without examination of charges.

    What does good fruit mean ?

    Doing good, helping others, just doing good things.

    Galatians 5:22-23
  • PROPHESY on Matthew 7:1
    Figure out when the fullness of the Gentiles has or will be completed. That's what we're waiting on.

    The fig tree is Israel. When is summer? When is the harvest?

    Certain conditions are already in play. The return of The Dispersed Jews is happening, every day. Anti-semitism is driving them to "go home to the land of their fathers."

    Briefly, the Palestinians fled from their countries to live wherever they could be allowed in. Now the world watches to see if Israel will be "forced" to accept the 2 State deal on the table. Will they give up all they won in 1967 for Peace?

    Keep your eyes on what Russia and China does to push this thing along. Prophesy tells that Russia will be utterly wiped off the map for its interference. By God.

    A working knowledge of Bible prophesy would be advisable for now. Some modern Prophets are False Prophets. Which ones? See: you need to be careful lest you be mis-informed by a false prophet.

    What does the Bible teach on these things?

    I read a prophesy in many years past, that the United States would so something so heinous that the entire world would come against it. What would that be?

    We cannot stop what is playing out. I advise being very prayerful over who you elect this fall. Vote your disgust and anger; or vote with God. What is that? I've seen some things but I will not say. Only this: that in Palestinian culture/blood heritage; the children born are the religion of their blood fathers. Israeli children are the religion of their mothers bloodline.

    Study prophesy.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 7:1
    Yes study prophecy - Exodus 19:5 - Now therefore, IF IF IF ye (Jews) will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

    Jeremiah 11:10 - They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.

    Leviticus 18:5 - Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which IF IF IF a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD. Thing is the Jews did not keep the covenant and did you know God DIVORCED ISRAEL....

    Hmmm. most do not know.

    Jeremiah 3:8 - And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of DIVORCE divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

    Jeremiah 5:11 - For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the LORD.

    Question: Who does the Bible alone say KILLED JESUS

    A: 1 Thessalonians 2:14 -15 ...even as they have of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, ....

    Q: Is there another plan of salvation for unbelieving Jews?

    A: Acts 4:12 - Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

    Q: Did Jesus take the Kingdom of God from the Jews?

    A: Matthew 21:43 - Therefore say I (Jesus speaking to the Jews) unto you,

    The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

    Matthew 23:15 - Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees (ALL Pharisees are Jews) , hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

    Harsh words from Jesus
  • Louie Romine on Matthew 7:1
    Can the sins of your great grandparents be held against you?
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 7:1
    Louie, No, the sins of your grandparents nor of your parents or anyone else, can ever be held against you. We are all accountable to God for the sins we commit.

    "The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die." Ezekiel 18:20,21.

    And even though "the wages of sin is death" (Rom 6:23), "the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

    We are all guilty before God for our own sins & it's only by our faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, that we can be saved from its awful penalty. However, the genes that are passed on to us from our parents, etc. can include characteristics that are not always wholesome. Other times, it's not just the genes, but also what children see & learn from their parents that cause them to err later in life. What a great responsibility parents have: they can't remove the genes they pass on, but they can demonstrate good living & teach their children to do so, especially according to the Bible. Yet, we still have to deal with our weaknesses & failings in these areas, in the Power that Christ has given us.

    The Mandela Effect is false. Just another way that Satan is trying to trick you. The bible is true.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Matthew 7:1
    Do you really believe that God would allow His words (the bible) to be changed? Not possible. My bible is the same today as it was 60 years ago when it was given to me.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 7:1
    I have found many hardly used older Bibles at Goodwill or Salvation Army stores. Keep an eye out.
