  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    How is it that you boast of yourself, saying, By my own sight I did much! and, By my own hand I obtained much! Yet ye ignore the grace of God then, and confess not your own sins now: saying, God is all powerful and no man can resist his will, so why should I repent? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?

    Tsk tsk... Those of you pushing denominational worship and "rule of the church" are actually WRONG... Many times over the Holy Bible warns of "the sects" and being "decieved by false teachings"... I mean according to each denomination, everyone else is doomed to the lake of fire... Nowhere in the Bible does it state that we must report to a designated building to worship him...

    Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
  • David
    Jesus teaches us in this chapter to cut of anything or anyone who tempts us in life. But also a few verses down He teaches that if he is our brother or sister in Christ, before we cut them of there are steps of trying to help them. If those steps don't work, only then cut them off. Praise God for this wisdom!

    Verse 8~If something or someone is making us stumble spiritually we may need to take strong action and get away from that person or thing and draw close to Jehovah God.
  • Obbie Beal
    35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses. (at home, in the streets, jobs, daily we fight with with anger because from the heart we are tempted to not-forgive as direct by Jehovah /GOD. Wow! Wow! Wow!

    Whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven? Job 38:31,Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades, Or loose the cords of Orion? these are stars or hosts of heaven Angels fallen we can bind them in the second heaven in the name and power of Yeshua Jesus Messiah, How awesome, Amen
  • Lilian

    matthew 18:6 is Christs words about the preciousness of a children Seems those bishops and anyone involved in moving priests from parish to parish knowing they are molesting and sodomizing children have never read Christs words God will punish all those from the Pope down Not one heard the cry of one child I have lost faith in the catholic church

    Jesus, gave his life for our debt. We are going to be in situations that we going to have to truly forgive, we're going to have to truly let go everything. Even the littlest things the littlest unforgiveness can keep us from making it to heaven. This chapter is telling us to Let It Go and live and what I mean by living living a save and Holy life for Christ. We have to think within ourselves!….
  • Andy
    David, the point of the parable is to teach us that we should live with a heart of gratitude. We have been given grace which we did not earn but was given to us and with this heart of gratitude it would be easy to forgive because we understand our own failures and short comings. Forgiveness is a natural outpouring of the Holy Spirit flowing out of us.
  • A disciple
    David (cont.); We know that Jesus said, that none of them which the Father has given Him shall perish; and no one is able to pluck us from His hand. But Jesus also made it abundantly clear, that we must abide in Him or we would be cast away as a withered branch and gathered into bundles to be burnt. Only if we DO what He says, are we guaranteed not to fall when the storm of judgment pounds on us.
  • A disciple
    David; What the Law exposes in man is that ruin and deformity caused by the evil alienated nature we received from our parents, as well as our own sins. The Law teaches us what kind of men we are intended to be in God's view WHO CREATED US AND REDEEMED US. The revelation of grace and truth through Jesus Christ fulfills the demands of the character pleasing to God, out of which establishes the Law.
  • David Nichols
    Concerning Matthew 18:35: "So your Heavenly Father will do to you if each of you, if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses".
    Question: This seems to be explicitly clear that the sin of unforgiveness is a sin God will not forgive a believer for committing. How does this verse/concept reconcile to such verses as Romans 5: 2, 20
  • BSP
    Verse 20: This principle applies to congregation meetings. Since Christ is in our midst during congregation meetings, we should be mindful of what we do and what we say.
  • BSP
    Verse 22: This doesn't mean that we should literally keep a count and only forgive 77 times. We should be generous in forgiving as our Heavenly Father is generous in forgiving our sins.

    Jesus is dealing w/relationships
  • Jeff Berry
    Can you pay all that you owe to God? Because that is what He expects from you if you do not forgive your fellow believer! Verse 35.
  • Jeff Berry
    As a toddler taking his first step, our Father (with His hands stretched out to catch us) is waiting for our first steps toward Him.
  • Jeff Berry
    In Chapter 5 Jesus uses an extreme exaggeration (hyperbole) to warn believers of sin. Here in verses 7-10 (and again in Mark Chapter 9) He is warning nonbelievers who "despise" believers and would cause them to stumble.
  • Ike Obi
    This is a message about forgiveness, based on our fellowship with God and fellowship with others. Are there unforgiveness in my heart; are there areas of unforgiveness that I need to forgive? What do others see when they see me?
  • MARILYN MANOCCHIO
    THIS CHAPTER AND BEING REVEALED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT MEANS THAT WE SHOULD BE HUMBLE IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES FOR THIS IS THE DUTY AND SHOULD BE THE DUTY OF EACH AND EVERY CHRISTIAN. FOR THE KEYS TO SUCCESS IS PERSERVERANCE AND HUMILITY. GOD BLESS AND I PRAY THAT EACH AND EVERY CHRISTIAN IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE - THAT WOULD BE ON A UNIVERSAL BASIS MEANS WE SHOULD STRIVE TO BE MORE LIKE JESUS EACH DAY.

    I love Jesus my Lord and Savior!
