"But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." Matthew 15:9

When I was 18 I had had scoliosis for 2 yrs. I am 75 now. At 18 my left hip was 4 in. higher than my right; my spine was a backward 'S'. In June of '60 the Lord healed me, but I didn't know it was Him for 10 yrs. In '60 I had 'heard' there was a God; that was about it. I 'learned' that much in a mainstream church. So, Jesus does heal without OUR prayers, but I KNOW someone was praying for me.

Im just trying to help you understand the right meaning of Matthew15:26 NIV "It is not right to take the childrens(Jews) bread (Word of God)and toss it to their dogs." (Gentiles) 24:" I have only been sent to the lost sheep of Israel." He was trying to save HIS "lost sheep" first. When the woman gave her reply,jesus found favor in her and healed her daughter. God is good.

Hi Jo-an,
Is there a particular verse that you are having trouble with or just the Bible in general? Not sure how to help without knowing where the problem rests. but I'd love to help you out if I can.
God bless you in Jesus name :)

Do not try so hard, but pray about the passage that worries you. Sometimes, we are not ready to understand and sometimes you have to take what is written by faith, until the time is right for you to understand. It is in God's time, not ours. Be kind to yourself and trust in our Lord.

I am having a very hard time understanding what Jesus is telling us. Believe me I am trying so hard but, i AM NOT UNDERSTANDING WHAT I AM READING. Please try to help me. When I get done reading all of the above I sit and think about what I have read and I meditate but I am getting no where. Please try to hep me because I love the lord but I need true understanding.

"Not adding man's traditions"; Jeremiah 10:3-4, 1 Timothy 4:1-3, Deuteronomy 12:4,29-32.
God's thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Amen.

 


Richard's comment on 2/24/2016, 10:18am...

verses 1-9 I believe what Jesus was warning to all churches is not to add any mans traditions to the teachings God's holy word.

"The LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL" are not talking about the Jews.
The Jews are the 2 tribes of the12 original HEBREW tribes that was separated from ISRAEL in a Civil War. The JEWS are the 2 tribes of JUDAH and BENJAMIN. They are refered to as "THE HOUSE OF JUDAH" in the prophecies. THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL are the 10 other tribes that was taken by the Assyrians.

In my own understanding according to Matthew 15 13 .....Jesus was talking in parable,using a tree so that we human being may understand him,................................ MEANING Anything that is in you,that was not planted by God most be rooted up,whether sickness,failure,poorvaty,not been a stake holder in things of lord,sin,etc, most be rooted up in Jesus name..AMEN........

The correct answer is kind for the heart is an organ that pumps blood,Christ spake this way to confound the unlearned.

VERSE 22, one person can not come out of two places at the same time. Coasts is plural. If the woman is a literal person then she would have met Jesus at a literal place, either Tyre or Sidon. It is possible that this woman represents a group of religious people that are from the coastal areas of Tyre and Sidon that realize their religion is not completely pure of evil. Looking for the Messiah to save them from evil, they ask for help. Jesus was sent to reform the Jews that over time have distorted religious laws into meaningless ritual. Jesus came to deal with the flaws of Israel mentioned in verse 19. The "woman " did not call Jesus Son of God, only son of David. She was not accepting the Divine origin of Jesus but was seeking the prophet, Messiah. Verse 26 explains that two religions can not blend into one. A dog is loyal, protective, and loving but only to the hand that feeds it. A dog does not question if the owners orders are right or wrong, it just obeys. These people were obeying religious laws that in action were of the devil or evil. The true religion can not mix doctrine and laws from other religions. That is why Jesus did not want to speak to the woman. Why give the Words of God to a people that will not follow them completely and convert? Just taking part of the Words of Jesus and rejecting the rest is not acceptable. Only those that completely repent and change all of their prior religious beliefs can be cleansed of evil. This woman, or group of religious people, did repent believing the truth of what Jesus taught, eating the bread of the Words of God. They became Christian therefore they were made whole and free of the devil.

Read verse 1 of ch. 15 on down , to get the understanding of what verse 11 really means.

 


Sarat meitei's comment about verse 24 on 4/13/2015, 11:30am...

Elizabeth, if u think about this verse only, i think u will never see the accurate answer becouse there are more verse about the salvation for sinner.there are more ministry miracle among the people of gentile . Jesus he said himself, "Go and spread the gospel in all nation ". .and think abou this . "For God so love the world............. john-3:16 . not said that "for God so love the lost israel " so we need god for salvation from our sins...

 


Anthony Sims's comment about verse 28 on 4/13/2015, 11:27am...

This lady was seeking Jesus and she found Jesus. Jesus wanted to see just how badly she wanted healing for her daughter. The lady didn 't give up even when Jesus seemed to insult her. The gentiles ' time had not come. But Jesus healed the child anyway. This tells me TO NEVER GIVE UP. HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! PRAISE GOD! HALLELUJAH! JESUS LIVES! JESUS SAVES! JESUS LOVES! JESUS HEALS! HALLELUJAH!

 


John faumuina jr's comment on 4/12/2015, 11:59am...

I think this chapter teaches me to understand how the lord teaches the gospel to his people.the gospel wasn't offered to the gentiles. everyone should have the gospel. If you really want to have faith you should have the gospel.The truth was already on earth.

 


John's comment on 4/11/2015, 3:14am...

This chapter has given me some difficulty, as is hard to understand how Christ himself might use such language. What I think explains this, rather than it being simply a rude outbust, is firstly he calls, likens, the lost sheep of Israel children. To me, this suggests that Christ may have deemed them as being childish, which is made more likely given that the chapter begins with His encounter with the scribes and Pharisees, whose behaviour may have appeared to Him that way and been somewhat representitive of the behaviour of Israelites. As for calling the Caanite woman a dog, we can assume He didn 't mean that she was literally a dog, as the lost sheep obviously aren 't literally children. Perhaps the Canaanites where not typically interested in the God of Israel or becoming Israelites, which I believe could have been possible given Leviticus 19:33-34 and Ezekiel 47:21-23, but were interesting in being healed, and perhaps given to being bothersome, in the way a dog might. Does anyone have any other ideas that might help me to understand about this better?

Jesus fullfilled the scriptures and showed his love and mercy to us in order to help us to believe that there is God and Jesus is the Son of the Living God who saves us and heal us. Jesus redeemed all of us through the cross, we are now live because of his forgiveness. We are now pardoned and saved. Our job now is only to believe Jesus and obey his commandments until rapture. Jesus is faithful to his promises and he will never ever leave us nor forsake us. Jesus loves you and thanks for the precious blood he shed for us
