  • David on MATTHEW 19:30
    The high and mighty, the rich, the famous, the masters of this world, will be rejected from the kingdom, but those on the out, the poor, the excluded, the homeless and degraded, they are holy, and those who stand with them, who give up their material goods and reject their families and their wealth and their inheritance, they are loved by GOD and will be the first in the kingdom and glory
  • Roy Mayhew - in Reply on MATTHEW 19:30
    This is not true, CHRIST Himself was well known all around , and his fame went throughout the land.

    many brought sick, and HE healed them.

    If you are not known, who will come to you?

    Don't judge the rich or poor, fame or not, rich or not.

    Often we misunderstand the depth of meanings.

    King is famous , is it not?

    LORD is king of the kings, Is he not?

    If you are poor, or rich, love and charity is important.

    At the sermon on the mountain

    Blessed are the poor, there is kingdom of heaven.

    The word poor is mistranslated. Poor is beggars of spirit.

    what that means is, someone who prays to GOD, which is beggar of spirit.

    Someone who searches for higher power then the earth.

    This is beggar of spirit.

    Someone who goes to temples and churches are beggars of spirit.

    Someone who wants to Know GOD, and LORD, and searches for GOD.

    is beggar of the GOD's spirit.

    It is not dry and cut, it is how we live.

    Love is main foundation in begging for spirit.

    In love we don't judge others. Only GOD is the judge.
  • Wendy Reynolds on Matthew 19:14
    I think this is how we should come to God as little children, guileless, seeking nothing only wanting to love the savior.
  • Rod - in Reply on Matthew 19:14
    you are absolutely correct and this is just some more scripture to support your view, and if I may add read our bible (KJV) on a daily basis. Thank You

    Mark 10:15 "Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein."

    Luke Chapter 18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified [rather] than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

    15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when [his] disciples saw [it], they rebuked them.

    16 But Jesus called them [unto him], and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

    17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.
  • Jasper on Matthew 19:9
    @Valerie Although your comment was 7 years ago, I still feel the need to point out that I don't see any message in this phrase saying that you CAN'T forgive your spouse. It's simply just stating the only reason you COULD divorce, is because of cheating. Which is 100% understandable.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 19:23
    I believe you will find your answer by reading the same account in Mark 10:17-25. In Mark, the added remark of "Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God" (v 24).

    So wealth is not the problem, unless of course one is distracted by it or uses what God has given, unwisely. But the point of Jesus' remark was that He detected that this young man's heart was not right. He might have "kept all the commandments" as he said, but in fact Jesus noticed that he broke the very first commandment, "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me". This man went away sad, as it wasn't just his wealth that held him back, but his love, trust & dependence that he placed on it, that relegated God into second place. And indeed, it doesn't have to be money that can cause us to put our God & Saviour into second spot. 1 John 5:21.
  • JOB 39 on Matthew 19
    Job 39:15

    13
    Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?

    14 Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,

    15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.

    16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear;

    17 Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.

    18 What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.
  • Lou Contino on Matthew 19
    As we read through Matthew we continue to see Jesus point to a separation from the world. All that He speaks of is Spiritual living in a relationship to The Father. This Spiritual living can only be given of The Holy Spirit dwelling within us which cannot happen without a belief in Christ Jesus. Pray therefore The Father strengthen our belief, reliance and forgiveness in Christ Jesus for our wrongdoings & thoughts and that The Father not take away The Holy Spirit from us, but be Merciful. And in The Mercy The Father extends to us, we must extend to our Mother, Father, Brother & Sister. Be at Peace in Christ and secure that The Holy Spirit is dwelling within you to guide, convict and Bless your life in following Christ. For this is the preparation we need to become a perfect bride in total church for Christ Jesus to marry so we too become as One with Him; just as He, The Father and Holy Spirit are ONE.
  • Eva Rabon on Matthew 19
    I wander how many of these mulity millionaire preachers on T.V. dressed in their 1000 dollar suits and live in their mansions WITH THEIR PRIVET JETS AND FINE CARS would do what JESUS asked the young to do in Matthew, 19, verse 21. If thou will be perfect, go and sell that thou hast and give to the poor and thou shalt have treasure in Heaven and come and follow me.
  • Tim on Matthew 19
    Very interesting to read that the 12 disciples will sit on Thrones in heaven with Jesus and judge the 12 tribes of Israel at Judgement day. It is shocking to read this knowing Judas was one of the 12 disciples. Does this mean even though he betrayed Jesus and hung himself he is and will be with the Lord forever??? It is making me rethink many things about Judas and God's plans
  • Lou Contino - in Reply on Matthew 19
    No Judas is not in Heaven. Did Judas have a relationship with God just because he followed Jesus and hung around Him? This relationship must occur on a Spiritual level to separate a person from the world. Not talking about leaving the world, but worldly things. Judas managed the money for the disciples. He was to give to the poor and buy food for them. This role is not by coincidence. Jesus used this to demonstrate that Judas' ties to this kept him with a worldly vision for Jesus and not understanding his need for a Spiritual relationship with The Father.

    "You were the anointed cherub who covers,

    And I placed you there.

    You were on the holy mountain of God;

    You walked in the midst of the stones of fire.

    You were blameless in your ways

    From the day you were created

    Until unrighteousness was found in you.

    By the abundance of your trade

    You were internally filled with violence,

    And you sinned;

    Therefore I have cast you as profane

    From the mountain of God.

    And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub,

    From the midst of the stones of fire."

    Ezekiel 28:14-16 (NASB)

    Judas will not go to Heaven. The disiple that took Judas place will take his place in Heaven. I forget his name, but you can look it up.
  • Nancy - in Reply on Matthew 19
    To "Tim on Matthew 19" RE: Judas.

    Remember, Matthias replaced Judas as a discipline, so still 12.
  • PATRICIA on Matthew 19:6
    We are to follow the laws of the land however just because it is law does not mean its "Holy".

    Are all marriages ordained of God? No. There are many people who can legally marry someone. That does not make the union "Holy" it makes it legal. It So yes anyone can be divorced legally. Being married in church or by clergy does not make the union holy its's legal. i

    Believers

    First are you both saved and covered by the shed blood of the Lamb of God Jesus Christ ...a man who findeth an wife findeth a good thing, And obtains favor from the Lord.Mark Men if you are looking for a woman who looks good on your arm or one that you covet what she has, this is not ordained by God. This is born of the flesh. Findeth a wife, a good thing ...Women if you are looking for a man of wealth and status not so. Be not deceived there or wolves in sheep clothing seeking out whom they may devour. Both men and women.

    Men when you find a woman that you love wholeheartedly and cherish one you would lay down your life for. That's the one. Women when God sends you the man of your prayers he should have all the qualities of a man after Gods own heart and who will love you with his whole heart, respect cherish and be ready to lay his life down for you. That's the one. Men if you want to be treated like the king of the castle (home) love honor cherish and rule with lovingkindness. This is the man who will receive respect and be treated as King. And the man who will treat his wife as a Queen and give him the respect and both will be able to stay in their lane.

    First is the man/woman saved by the shed blood of the Lamb Of God Jesus Christ will show forth fruit of the relationship.

    Do not be unequally yoked with unbelivers. Do not be associated with anyone that one that does not believe.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 19:4
    Trannys know what the Bible says: Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
  • FRANCISCA on Matthew 19:12
    What is the meaning of eunuchs in the bible?
  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 19:12
    Francisca,

    A eunuch is somebody who is unable to produce children. That is just a general definition without getting into it. Matthew 19:12 says, But there are some eunuchs, first of all: which were so born from their mother's womb. They were born with a physical defect and are not able to produce children.

    And there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: That is, people take them and they castrate them, which is what they did for the guards that had to guard the harems for the various royalty and kings. They were castrated so that they would not have a desire for a woman.

    And there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. That's personal. It's a calling, and it is self-discipline!

    In first Corinthians Chapter 7, Paul answered the question, and this is the area of marriage and divorce, and remarriage for the Gentiles. But Paul says it is best if everybody is just a like I am.

    Paul says that he is single, and it is best if you stay like I am. And if you have the grace to do it, stay single. That is 1 Corinthians 7:8.

    But, he says in 1 Corinthians 7:9 that if you cannot contain yourself, and you are burning with passion, then it is better to get married.

    Those are the three kinds of people, people born with the physical defect, people who have been castrated, or a personal calling that God is giving you the grace to be single. And if God hasn't given you the grace to be single, and you are burning with passion, Paul says it is best to get married.
  • Obbie Beal on Matthew 19
    17...if thou wilt enter into Life.
    21... thou shalt have Treasure In HEAVEN.
    23...shall hardly enter into the KINGDOM Of HEAVEN.
    24...the KINGDOM Of GOD.
    28...The Throne Of HIS GLORY.
    29... Shall inherit EVERLASTING LIFE.
    notice in these verses JESUS mind is on SALVATION for us, plus notice how JESUS teaches us about SALVATION using different wordings in this chapter, other chapters also, nevertheless the intent of JESUS HEART is always we become SAVED from the lake of fire. John 3:16-21 direct us to SALVATION thereby we are decide if we will accept SALVATION through JESUS.
  • Obbie Beal on Matthew 19
    Notice the words of jesus in verse 14, 17, 21, 23, 24, 28, 29. example: verse 14 ...the kingdom of heaven. verse 17... but if thou wilt enter into life. verse 21... and thou shalt have treasure in heaven. verse 23...the kingdom of heaven. verse 24...enter into the kingdom of god. verse 28...the throne of his glory. verse 29...shall inherit everlasting life. ....all these verses teach us how jesus taught the same thing or salvation in different ways. John 3:16-21 is another very good verse applicable to these verses.
  • Jesus Holds My Babies on Matthew 19
    I Never Held my Babies in a Warm and Loving Embrace or Watched with Wonder the Joy that Brightened their Face I never saw their Smiles or held them in my arms or was I ever Enraptured by all their Childlike charms. Although my dreams were many and I longed to Hold them Close the Joy of their Childhood I never was to know. They are my Precious Ones and will always be in my Heart and my Love for them will never ever depart. Do I understand Gods purposes in this life I may never know but I Trust and Believe His Promise only His Love will be Shown. For deep within my Heart I know without a doubt that my Children are in Heaven that is what His Grace is All about.Matthew19:14
  • Paul Mikula on Matthew 19
    Matthew 19:12 about eunuchs that what Jesus talk about it.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Matthew 19
    eunuchs, are castrated men. Some did this themselves so they would not sin in sexual things and some rulers did this to their servants so he could trust them not to have sex with his kin or his other servants.
  • James Peter Fisher on Matthew 19
    Jesus christ asked why this man called him good only god is good he was not telling him he was not good he was telling him he was talking to god and to us jesus christ is god he came to this fallen world and gave us a gift all the world's he created before us that cannot be numbered he gave his rightouesness aman
  • Teri on Matthew 19
    Matthew 13:13...Isaiah 42:20 and etc...but lets not get into disputes, but instead 1 Thess 5:11!
  • Teri on Matthew 19
    Yep, bretheren...there are alot of "stories" that pass for sermons! Stick with the pure words of God. Study and meditate and the Lord will give you understanding. KJV
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Matthew 19
    There's nothing wrong with stories preached by preachers. Jesus preached many such stories. They are called parables.
  • Patty Tozi on Matthew 19
    When the worlds ways get into your way. There's God close by, to strengthen you. When someone ruins your plans by being-- ME. MYSELF. AND I COME FIRST--Give it to God to show you the right way. When God gives you Wisdom that you asked for, and others use their own way. Know God is close telling you the right way: PRAISE GOD FOR THE ALONE TIME-- YOU NOW NEED WITH HIM!!
