Discussion for Matthew 7:5

  • Michael - in Reply on Matthew 7:5
    Jesus dose know but he did not know while he was on earth
  • Mishael on Why Evil Things Happen on Matthew 7:5
    When Lucifer was kicked out of Heaven (pre-garden of Eden), he was on the earth in the darkness. He was here when creation began.

    When Adam and Eve sinned, Lucifers name became Satan. He obtained the deed to the earth.

    Evil was here until 2nd Adam, Jesus came to earth, became the Son of Man, and fulfilled his work as Messiah; the Son of God.

    When Jesus was crucified, He fulfilled over 100 prophesies. One was Genesis 3:15, And I will put enmity between thee (Satan) and the woman and between thy seed and her seed, "IT" shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."

    Jesus got the keys to hell to release the prisoners; and He took back the deed to the earth. Satan was stripped. But he's still here. At the 2nd Advent, there will be a war between Satan and Jesus. Satan will lose.

    That's why we have an I WILL running around to and fro in the earth exercising evil against people. Gods children are hurt too, but we can pray for Divine intervention if our faith is strengthened and exercised.

    Even in the Lords Prayer, we pray: deliver us from the evil. If you don't know what that prayer means, you are going to suffer hurts or worse. Get knowledge and fight!!

    Satan is a loose evil will in our world. That's all he's got, but that's bad enough. That's why I tell people to pray and ask the Holy Spirit for the gift of Discerning Of Spirits. You'll be able to discern when evil is about or when angels are near.

    Learn about spiritual warfare. Don't start seeing demons everywhere. Learn what their fruit is.

    Look, I'm not going to tell about weird stuff that's happened to me. If you have weird stuff then you can ask me. My testimony is Heinz 57.

    Be blessed because Jesus has overcome them!
  • Barbara Melvin on Matthew 7:5
    Why do people get mad at you when you tell them about Jesus.And hate to see them lost.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 7:5
    Barbara: Prepare before witnessing. Pray to the Lord of the Harvest; to send people your way that are ready to hear & seeking God.

    Ask them if they've ever told a lie; stolen something (like a pen or sticky notes from work)?

    Ever wanted the house or a car of the neighbors?

    Ten Commandments things. See if they will admit to being a liar or thief.

    Then tell them if they've even broke one of those commandments, they are guilty of all 10.

    Ask them if they believe Jesus is the Son of God. He was born through a virgin. He lived a sinless life. He was crucified for the sins of the whole world; That he rose back to life on the 3rd day; he was seen by 500 people after resurrection; that he returned To heaven to sit at Gods right hand and make intercession for all saints.

    Yep. I expect you to look up those scriptures.

    Study to show yourself approved. A workman that doesn't need to be ashamed.

    If you're prayed up; studied up, you'll have more success. Jesus wants us to follow Him. That means being ready to share what you know & what you have believed.

    Invite the newborns to attend at your Church. They need to tell someone that they got saved! And to receive the Holy Spirit by corporate prayer.

    You will have much success; and receive a soul winners crown. :D

    Never be discouraged. Ask God to rain on every seed you've planted. Pray lots & lots.
  • Anonymous on Matthew 7:5
    I see this passage as being very straightforward. It is a reminder that when we are pointing out flaws in others we ate ignoring our own flaws, and in the case of hypocrisy can be significantly worse for the accuser, than the accused.
  • Corliss Cooper on Matthew 7:5
    A beam was used to hold up a ship. The wider the beam the more stable it was. I am inclined to believe that pride is a beam because it can have you lifted so high up where you think that your better than everyone else. It 's deceitful because when its in the eye of your understanding it can and will blind you from seeing the truth. "It 's the water of the Holy Spirit holding you up and not the beam. " Remember when Jesus was in the boat and the storm was raging. The disciples were scared but because they had Jesus he spoke to the wind and said peace be still and it became still! A beam wont protect you in a storm of Satanic doubt and unbelief but the Word of God will. You will find God 's word when you rest in the spirit of God continually. His spirit will keep you from pride because pride forms judgment and pride comes before a great fall! SHIPWRECK FAITH
