    Concerning Matthew 10:22 -

    How sad it is that all those who chose to post under this daily verse, have totally ignored the complete verse. Why would it be that we only pick and chose from the Word of God, dismissing what we will.

    The verse of the day - "And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved."

    Matthew 10:22

    I pray that we all will accept Exodus 31:3 - "And I filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship". The Holy Spirit is "the beginning of understanding"; therefore if one ever hears the phrase "we will understand it by and by", let us turn quickly and run the other way. How sad to hear.

    Praise God, Thank You Jesus.

    Some of us do read the whole thing :)

    Read the Commentary

    Read all the cross reference notes in the center columns on each page: that match with the abc notes inside of the scripture; that reference to other books or prophesies.

    Check the genealogies

    Personal note: our Bible comment room isn't a good place to either act foolish or angry. Some do. Forgive them and give the rest of us a chance to study with you.

    There's a ton of links in the "Red Link Area" where you first came in. The Search Box leads to the Commentaries.

    There are people in Prayer Requests that could use a special prayer from those who take Matthew 26, joyfully.

    Hope we see you again. Mishael

    Why is this person speaking on what's going on in this world when we are not apart of this world
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    I'm unsure which event you are referring to. John 15:19 and John 17:14 shows Jesus saying, that people would hate us (followers of Christ) because we're not like them (of the world) - we don't behave or follow their ways.

    But if you're writing about some worldly affairs that we should not be a part of, then you are correct to a point. God has given us the privilege of living in a World prepared for our habitation & enjoyment. There will be many things happening within 'our world' & 'outside our world' of significance. And we will have to deal with all those things, not just with our minds, but also our decisions on how to act. I'm unsure if you are thinking of any specific aspect of worldly affairs but I believe we can be involved in some way with the actions of local/federal government, or against the evils going on around us, or just being salt & light in those dark areas bringing out the light & beauty of Kingdom life. There will be things that the world does that will hold no interest to us or will add nothing to our faith & walk with the Lord (such as their worldly pleasures & pursuits); we can overlook & avoid such things & not clutter our minds & lives with them.

    However, you may be thinking of something else or some Scripture that brings out your thoughts.
  • Jim on Matthew 10
    God is the author and finisher of own faith. He knows all about us, he knew me before I was in my mother womb. The number of hairs on your head no one can probably know except God. He made us not we ourselves. Because of his mercy and Grace, we are still here. If God would deal with any of us because of our sins, we would all perish. Learn of his goodness, and how much he love us. Be kind to one another, show your family and friend and strangers how much you love god. Comments from Matthew 10.

    Why is the word Gentiles capitolized?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Matthew 10:18
    Because Gentiles is a person (Or persons), place or thing. A noun. You learn that in the 3rd grade.
  • History of Israel and Gentiles - in Reply on Matthew 10:18
    The simple explanation of it: there are 3 groups of people on earth:

    Unbelieving Gentiles, Pagans

    Gentiles (all born again people, no matter their nationality or church affiliation.). Grafted into the Vine (Christ) by faith.

    The Jewish People. In covenant with God (Genesis 15). In Genesis 32:28, 30

    Jacobs NAME was changed to ISRAEL.

    Much of what scholars know about Israel's ancient history comes from the Hebrew Bible. According to the text, Israel's origins can be traced back to Abraham, who is considered the father of both Judaism (through his son Isaac) and Islam (through his son Ishmael).

    Abraham's descendants were thought to be enslaved by the Egyptians for 400 years before settling in Canaan, which is approximately the region of modern-day Israel.

    When World War I ended in 1918 with an Allied victory, the 400-year Ottoman Empire rule ended, and Great Britain took control over what became known as Palestine (modern-day Israel, Palestine and Jordan).

    The British controlled Palestine until Israel, in the years following the end of World War II, became an independent state in 1947.

    God set His love on Israel. The unsaved world Hates Israel for that one Reason. Armageddon will be fought for that same reason. Then this world will end. Don't be left behind.

    John 15:18-19. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

    If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

  • In the News today on Matthew 10
    The ACLJ continues to score major victories for families struggling with school closures and AT-HOME learning during the Coronavirus pandemic.

    Planned Parenthood has reared ts ugly head again. It's demanding that the Supreme Court overturn the Trump Administration's rule defunding it of millions of TAXPAYER dollars. We're ready to fight back at the Supreme Court.

    Once again Senator Dianne Feinstein has reaffirmed her utter disdain for Christianity. Sen. Feinstein was caught on a "hot mic" ATTACKING Judge Amy Coney Barrett's faith and pro-life views: "She's been pro-life for a long time. So I suspect with her, it is deeply personal and comes with her "religion."

    They promised to leave Barretts faith alone, but they just couldn't help themselves. But in the end, it's an attack on YOU, your faith and your pro-life views. Join us in demanding the Senate confirm Judge Barrett now.

    House Speaker PELOSI is trying to hijack the Presidency, again!

    Pelosi is pushing legislation to establish a commission with the power to declare the President of the United States - chosen by the American people - unfit for office.

    This is a politically motivated attack on the 25th Amendment and on our democracy. We're taking action to expose and defeat the Left's plot.

    Conservatives have been silenced, blocked from Twitter. Pro-lifers have been "fact checked" as false for exposing Planned Parenthood's lies. This can't be allowed to continue.

    These social media giants must be held accountable. Next week the Senate Judiciary Committee will subpoena big tech CEOs for a hearing in just a few days. We're taking action, but we need YOU.

    New petitions needing signatures today.

  • Fred Scanlan on Matthew 10
    God showed peter through a vision of the sheet, that there is nothing unclean of itself. Now that we live under a new commandment,a new covenant, found in the forgiveness of Christ, Time of Grace,How should we, as believing Christians love those who are outside the faith? Those who believe they are transgender, those that marry who are the same sex, or those that believe in abortion. These and many ,many, more questions. It is clear that the time of grace is fast removing! That man wants to live under the old covenant ,under the law. Jesus said, his blood is the blood of the new covenant. The new testament! We are reminded of the sins of those in the old test. and the consequences of it!The law (old testament) is indeed a schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ!( Galatians 3:24) How is it, they do not see . How is it they do not hear, nor understand. When you die you will be judged! You will not escape the judgment! You will either be judged by the law according to the old test. Or, according to the grace found, through faith in the atoning blood of Christ!

    Hello Fred,

    It is so true about the times we live in right now. One of my cousins, a female, was just a lesbian but is now a full blown transgender. I have not seen her since and really have no interest to. I still love her, and always will, but feel so bad for what she has done not only to herself but the disgrace she has brought to her mother and father. I really don't blame her I blame satan and the world we live in today. So many evil things, as others you stated, are not just in the world but being force fed to the children while they are still young and in school. As people get brain washed into thinking good is evil and evil good. Also lies are truth and truth lies. Satan at work.

    I don't hate people. Even the most wretched. I feel bad for them as they are just enslaved and being used by satan. Them not even knowing it. It truly is sad. As this is all over the world I feel to just pray for eveyone. That the Lord shall open their eyes one day and have mercy on them. We have all make mistakes before.

    God Bless you brother.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Matthew 10
    If we are to have the mind of Christ, It is power to be in his spirit! When we speak the truth in love, the holy spirit will do the work for us. When the spirit convicts people of sin they will either except it or reject it. One thing is for sure, it will convict them of sin! If it does not, then we will agree with Paul, when he says their conscience is seared as with a hot iron! Grace, mercy, and peace be unto you.
  • Hilda Banks on Matthew 10
    Why in Matthews 10:1 do Jesus say disciples, but in vs. 2 does he call them apostles ... what is the difference and when is one vs the other used.
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Matthew 10
    Hello Hilda,

    I actually looked into this a little while ago to find the difference also. A disciple is a follower or a student of a teacher. Learning. An apostle is when that student goes out and actually teaches others, what they have learned, from their master or teacher.

    Hope that helps. God Bless.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 10:28
    Warren, those are worthy thoughts you've expressed there: that to change the phrase "the fear of the LORD" to anything else, changes its meaning & implications to the reader. I feel that man has found that phrase to be outdated & confusing to anyone contemplating its meaning. It might, to them, present a loving, merciful God as One also filled with anger, unknowable & to be kept at a distance. And it's for this very reason that the Holy Character of God needs a full & complete explanation so none are kept in the dark, fearful or mystified to this God Who is personal & knowable.

    Psalms 33:8: "Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him." An appropriate Psalm which should explain how our words should be used & to cause us to stop in our tracks if we dare to alter the Divine meaning of them. This Scripture declares that if the world is able to stand in awe (= admiration, astonishment, reverence, wonder) of the display & wonder of God, then they must first have the "fear of the LORD" within (fear = understanding the Character of God as we see Him as Holy & we are so unholy, Just as we are unjust, Merciful as we are unmerciful, Truthful as we harbour lies & deceit).

    That we should cry out as Isaiah did (Isaiah 6:5: "Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts."). This was not just a man beholding the Almighty in awe, but one who had to fall to his knees as he saw the absolute Holiness God revealing his sinfulness. This I see is a proper 'fear of the LORD' when we can understand & see with the spiritual eye Who God is that causes us to tremble before Him. Too many today have that 'casual chat with a Friend' approach to God & forget Who He is in the light of who they are.
  • Derrick on Matthew 10:5
    I want to know why in Matthew 7:12 when jesus was talking about do unto others as you would want them to do unto you and then over in 1Pet.3:9 it talking about rendering evil for evil can i have some help with understanding why was the both was said
  • 1 Peter 3 - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    Sometimes you just have to read it slower to pick up the meaning.

    1 Peter 3

    8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

    9 NOT rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

    10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him REFRAIN his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

    11 Let him eschew (avoid) evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue (follow) it.

    12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

    Mishael: there's no controversy to what you read. I read Genesis and Revelation at a snails pace. Genesis sometimes jumps forward; sometimes it adds more information, or points backward.

    It helps tremendously to get a Bible with Center of Each Page, Reference Columns.

    (See the abc notes?). It adds more info; or it fast forwards to fulfillment; or it will point to a prophesy about Jesus, etc.

    Before too long, you'll be teaching. I always ask the Holy Spirit to show me what I am reading.

    Like, if you're reading about Cain; it helps to read all the way through to his death and a little past that. Read the reference columns too as you move along.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    In Matthew 7:12, Jesus was stating the type of behaviour that we should show to others: a behaviour that is gentle, kind, understanding, without hatred, without jealousy. If we expect others to have this type of attitude towards us, then we must also show them the same. We can't expect graciousness from others if we are not prepared to show them likewise.

    Then in 1 Peter 3:9, Peter says the same thing about our attitude, except that if someone does evil to us (with lies, anger, hurt, etc.) instead of good, then we don't repay with evil to them. So the message from both the Matthew & 1 Peter passages tells us that whatever comes our way from others, whether good or bad, our response must always be good & above reproach to them, as those that profess godliness.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    Norman, you don't mention whether you both were born again at the time of your wedding. Now, even if you both were believers loving & serving God, you both found each other at a time when she was rejected & unloved by a vile man. Ordinarily, the Scriptures are clear about divorce & re-marriage (which you are aware of), but I believe that God sees exceptions & also gives further proof His acceptance of us. Your wife was abused or treated badly - she rightly left that relationship before she was hurt further. You both then met, you offered her counsel & support & your love for each other grew. You both wanted to cement that love in marriage - you've had a wonderful family, a loving faithful marriage & you've remained together through thick & thin with the blessing & help of the Lord. Apart from this sense of guilt you express now, have you ever sensed the Lord rejecting or disregarding your love for Him during your marriage? Did He give any clues about His displeasure & allowing a strong Word or discipline to come your way? You only know those answers.

    From what I can glean from your sharing here, is that the Lord has indeed blessed your lives in innumerable ways and isn't this His Confirmation to you both that your marriage was of the Lord, both to save her from a life of sorrow & that you both might grow a family to know & serve the Lord? You have without doubt shared all your heart ache on this matter with the Lord & I sense that you've done so in all honesty & devotion to Him. Leave it with the Lord, look for His confirmations of His acceptance & forgiving any wrong, & continue to love Him & your family with all that's within you.

    When we consider so many outside of Christ just hopping in & out of wedlock, we see a continual unhappiness & dissatisfaction in their marriages, often based on trivial issues or looking for the greener grass on the other side. This, the Lord hates; but I see the Lord's blessing on your marriage revealed in many ways to you.

    Every sin "you believe" you ever committed was wiped away at the cross of Jesus Christ... The cross is/was a finished work. Have a great day. Lynn
  • Philip - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    Jesus was asked: "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments," (Matthew 22:36-40)

    Jesus gave us many commandments in the new testament Norman see if you can find more.

    Do you know why Jesus told his disciples to not go into any city of the Samaritans?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    Jesus was appointed to preach to the Jews first. The Samaritan woman was considered Gentile.

    The gospels show that on occasion, He did speak of ministry to certain Gentiles.
  • Frank Garcia - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    The answer is because they were part Jewish and gentle. They were consider dogs.
  • Lynn C Friend - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    Hello Frank, Sorry, I think I called you Mike in a response I made to you but am unable to find now.. :) I just discovered this bible discussion site and have not learned how to access responses even though I'm told to go to a certain numbered thread... do you think it was odd that Jesus spent 2 days with what you are saying were believed as dogs with the many of them believing he was the Christ prior to his leaving their city?
  • Lynn C Friend - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    Hello Mike, So are you saying that according to what Jesus said here in Matthew 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

    that these ones you are calling dogs, were some of the lost sheep of the house of israel? Why would Jesus have stayed with them for 2 days after speaking to the woman at the well? Lynn
  • Lynn C Friend - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    I had an email saying Jackie had responded to my question with this response...

    "They preach the Kingdom of God to the Jews 1st And they've rejected it And after that Samaritan's and the gentiles were invited in"

    However, for some reason, I am not able to bring up the response...

    The reason I asked the question was to see if anyone knew the real story that began with the woman at the well and how Jesus ended up going and staying with the Samaritans for 2 days and they all ended up believing on him as the Christ, the Messiah... so there was no need for the disciples to go to Samaria for they all knew who the Christ was...The thing is, this was all prior to Jesus's death and resurrection, even though we do know that he had said originally he was sent only unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel...I have never talked with anyone that seems to know this story about the Samaritans, that was a continuation of the story of the woman at the well... :)

  • Lynn C Friend - in Reply on Matthew 10:5
    Hello Jackie,

    Here is the section from the book of John where Jesus ended up staying with the Samaritans for 2 days after speaking with the woman at the well..

    John 4:39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.

    4:40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.

    4:41 And many more believed because of his own word;

    4:42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

    4:43 Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.

    I was mainly curious to see if others had seen this story of these Samaritans believing on the Lord Jesus Christ prior to his death and resurrection and prior to anyone believing it was not yet time for the Gentiles to receive the message...
