    This "stone" that Christ says "those that fall on it will be broken and those it falls on will be ground to." ; what is it and why the difference in severity?
  • T Levis - In Reply on Matthew 21 - 1 year ago
    Interesting I hadn't thought of it that way. Romans 8:26, 1Corinthians 13:1,9,11,12,13, context 1Corinthians 13, continuing from 1Corinthians 12 & through 1Corinthians 14, all 3 chapters complete the message, he's giving about tongues, in this book

    Hopefully this is helpful

    Alex1939...William this Matthew 21:16 is prophetic of the Manchild the H.G. that has to be born in us...Rev.12:5 she brought forth a manchild that is gonna rule all nations...Thats y the sower wants to sow his precious seed in our hearts that we might birth a baby Christ the Son of Man...The H.G...That Children of Promise...Thats y he cannot speak of him self simply b/c he has to be born in us via the seed of the sower, he is just an infant spiritually speaking...Jesus said unless you receive the Kingdom of God as a lil Child ( the H.G. ) that Child of Promise That New BIRTH you will in no wise enter there in...We need a new heart and a new spirit a new innerman...Which is the H.G...Our biggest enemy is our carnal minds...And nothin can still this demon without Christ in us...Which is the wheat from his good seed but satans sows a Tare in us ...Then we are in a war with satan...Its gonna be Kingdom against Kingdom...The only way we can win this war is by the babes and sucklings...which are baby Christ, Jesus offspring from his good seed the living word that is gonna be sown in humanity the opening of the BOOK ...The Kingdom does not come till the woman births the manchild the H.G.....Read Rev.12v10

    ......The world is gonna have a Baby....Thats y Jeremiah 30:6 Tells us all men are gonna travail in birth pains...The Child is the H.G. THE Children of PROMISE...I will Multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven...Thus the Children of PROMISE the H.G... Joel 2:28 I will pour out of my spirit on all flesh...Jeremiah says he saw all men with their hands on their loins as woman in travail with birth pains... Jeremiah 30:6...The Child is the H.G. that heavenly Jacob that is now in a warfare with the Tares...Satans seed...A time of Jacobs troubles...Jacob was the 3 rd person but the H.G. is also the 3 rd person...The wheat Jesus's seed the H.G.

    But these things are hid from the wise and prudent but revealed unto babes.... Matthew 11:25...William this is for spritually minded.

    Hello William. If Matthew 21:16 is taken on its own without using its context, one could use Jesus' Words for the spiritual babe in Christ voicing praise in a simple or unlearned tongue. However, for an exegetical understanding, the meaning & intent of the verse is quite the opposite.

    Jesus was clearly referencing Psalm 8:2: "Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger." In this Psalm of praise, David likens the defeat of his powerful enemies as coming mysteriously from the simple & weak (babes & sucklings). Even with their fewer numbers & feeble shouts when engaging in battle, it is the LORD Who has gained the victory - and no doubt 'stilling' the enemy & avenger (Heb: shabath, to cease, to draw back). This is reminiscent of Jahaziel's great assurance in 2 Chronicles 20:15: "Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's."

    When Jesus uses this Psalm 8:2 to highlight the chief priests & scribes ignorance of the Scriptures & animosity against Him, He asks them, 'aren't your ears open to what these young ones are shouting about, even as you saw the mighty things that were done in the Power of God? Even these little ones have joined the others to shout praises to God's Messiah (the Son of David).' As the shout of victory went out by Israel's 'feeble' army against the enemy, so now the shouts of praise from the 'simple & unlearned' uttered to praise this Jesus, God's Messiah. But this would have been too much for the religious leaders who refused to accept Jesus & to have their 'great' knowledge of the Scriptures questioned.

    is it possible for this scripture matthews 21:16 to be in referenced in away to the born-again experience of a new spiritual babe , camparing the tongues ( languages ) that can neighter be understood , from a natural born & a spiritual born ?
  • Chris - In Reply on Matthew 21 - 1 year ago
    Dear Imam Muhammad. We might not understand your meaning of 'oracle'. What we understand of the word is found in several portions of the Old Testament, and this refers to the Holy of Holies that was the inner sanctuary of the Tabernacle (or, Temple when King Solomon/Suleiman) built it (e.g. see it mentioned in 1 Kings 8:1-9).

    This place, the Oracle, that only the High Priest could enter contained the Ark of the Covenant. We know that this Temple was destroyed by the Romans in AD70, but what happened to the Ark of the Covenant, no one can be sure. So, in the biblical meaning, the Oracle is the Holy of Holies & that no longer exists.

    Matthew 21, is translated from the Greek in this translation. The Strongs Exhaustive Concordance on this site connection has only the Greek into English, that I personally could find. In Touch Ministry Dr. Charles Stanley, is working on many translations. I researched online also, there seems to be translations.
    please is the oracle in Arabia?

No matter what ur trails n tribulations r, for they will come against u 'good r bad' but don't u never 'Lose ur faith in God'.Let it b a learning lesson to make u strong n increase the faith that God has given u.Everything He has given to His son Jesus, He has given to u, for u r a heir of Jesus Christ.Give thanks to God.Believe it Received it n Achieve it. Give God the glory thanking Him for grace n mercy which have set me free. No more shackles on me. I'll pray that u will let God break all ur chains n set u free!B blessed

    Amen, Tony. That's exactly what I understood.
  • Foolish Pathetic Man on Matthew 21:44 - 3 years ago
    I begin to write to see if I can find Christ and If I can find our father, for I can't begin to know anything other then that Christ

    was crucified and that we deserve nothing but the punishment of Hell for our sins. And in the worst of our sins, the man that is broken before the lord,

    and begs for forgiveness and wishing to turn away from his filthiness has been saved from God with his Glory, and God does not love or forgive us

    because we deserve it, or that it is a payment due, but he does it out of his Glory alone. Bringing forth how dependent anything we hope to achieve is in

    his will, and his will alone.

    My heart is broken with how stupid I am, and my heart is broken with the sins that I have committed in either action or in thought. Where I thought my thoughts

    were whole and justified, just how muddy and deceptive they were. When my mind is on Jesus, his words, and his actions, and my lacking's there is a great

    sadness that I wish to escape, but by his grace I am saved. For the glory of God let these words go somewhere, and if they do I will not be silent of my writings.

    Men's wisdom lacks, because men think they are the center of it all for their consciousness. The carnal wise man does not begin to understand the price that Jesus paid.

    The pain he went through, the wrath of God and the glory of him forgiving the wicked that are on the rock. But let it be known that Jesus said "And whosoever

    shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder." No 5 minute confession and a swift decisive prayer is

    a breaking one's self upon that rock, and our wicked existence without God disciplining our disobedience takes no effort. But the brick that the builders rejected,

    Jesus Christ, that is the stone one must fall upon by his grace and glory, his words, his very deliverance by wisdom no heart had lived and uttered in perfection.

  • Alex on Matthew 21:16 - 3 years ago
    My comments about the babes and sucklings, MAT 21 KJV. it implies a birth of Christ being born in us. Thats y he always refers to himself as the SON OF MAN,He is gonna multiply himself in humanity via his seed thus the babes and sucklings that results from our hearing his Words etc.Thats y the WORLD WILL GO INTO TRAVAIL AND BIRTH PAINS. Hearing his words results in a spritual pregnancy, Because i have spoken these words seeds sorrows have filled your hearts when a woman in travail she has SORROWS but her Sorrows ARE TURNED INTO JOY AFTER THE CHILD COMES, THE CHILD BEING A BABY CHRIST,The H.G. Thats y he says i will see you again he is the babe,Whosoever receives one such CHILD in MY NAME receives ME. In MY NAME implies he is the father of the child, The child being the H.G.. Even in the natural we name our children after the Father, The name implies who the father is. thats y ISAIAH CALLS HIM EVERLASTING FATHER.The H.G comes out of his loins, his seeds his words, his breath etc. Thus he is truly the father of the H.G. WHICH ARE THE BABES AND SUCKLINGS. Thats y he refers to the H.G. as the Promise. Christ has to be multiplied as the stars of heaven,Thats y the woman is in travail and birth pains. Unless ya receive the kingdom of God as a lil child you will in NO wise enter there in ( THE BABES AND SUCKLINGS ) After the woman give birth John refers to the child as Salvation and the kingdom of God has now come. Thus no real salvation or a kingdom till the WOMAN GIVES BIRTH. We be the WOMAN . We are gona birth the children remember Jesus said the good seed are the children of the Kingdom which are spirits that which is born of the spirit is spirit thats the H.G the children of the Kingdom we are the mother, who is my mother? Them that hear the word that good seed and keeps it then comes a birth of Christ in US, WE ARE JUST A JOINT HEIR THE REAL HEIR IS THE CHILD, THE H.G. We are just the ground where that good seed is gona be sown. Thank God for th babes and sucklings

    So true Adam. Our excuse would be that this type of 'ministry' (whether coffee or books) is justified as it's not being done 'in the sanctuary' but outside of it & for other people's convenience & for necessity sake. How will the Lord find His Church at His Coming.
  • Naomi - In Reply on Matthew 21:13 - 3 years ago
    You have got it right.
  • Adam - In Reply on Matthew 21:13 - 3 years ago
    Hi Roger, doing sales and marketing and cheating in a church was what made Jesus more angry than any other time recorded in the Bible. So, it's a big deal and in my opinion church leaders who choose to charge $ for coffee, books, shirts, concerts, and have ATMs in the church will be dealt with severely. It is a severe lack of judgment on their part to do the one thing that made Jesus so angry in the Bible. The audacity for someone to do exactly what Jesus hated and didn't want is like slapping Him in the face, in my opinion. But today you will find thousands of churches doing exactly that. Satan even works among the churches to deceive Christians.
  • Rodger butcher on Matthew 21:13 - 3 years ago
    If Jesus says not to buy or sell in your house of worship then why do most or a lot of churches do and will be judged for braking one of God's law if they keep doing it and don't asked to be forgiving.
  • Alex on Matthew 21:46 - 3 years ago
    comments by Alex on David & Bathsheba. Do we not Hear David and Bathsheba. They were Allegorical of the early church, this relationship betwn David and Bathsheba yielded a Child but the Child was sick and died in its infancy. Bathsheba had a husband Uriah but she was barren under Uriah . God had made a promise to David approx 7 yrs b/f David met bathsheba that a son wd come outta of his loins that wd reign over the house of Israel for ever. The early Church and Christ had a relationship that yielded a Child called Christianity but the child was sick and died in its infancy the kingdom did not come with Christianity instead Jesus said the nite is coming when no man can work. Micah said he wd give them up till the woman is in birth pains rev.12 . At Horeb Moses married Israel to the law saying this is what GOD HAS ENJOINED UNTO YOU ENJOINED MEANS A MARRIAGE Israel was marrried to the law just LIKE bathsheba was married to URIAH. The early church was married to th LAW thats y Paul says you are dead to the law by the body of Christ that you that you should be MARRIED to ANOTHER even to him that was raised from the dead Christ . Batheheba was dead to Uriah by the body of David. thus she TRAVAILED AGAIN.(MY LIL CHILDREN OF WHOM I TRAVAIL IN BIRTH AGAIN ) a 2 nd Child and it was this 2 nd child that was the great king Solomon that wd rule all the nations. But Solomon did not fulfil the prophecy by God of a very special Child coming.He was just symbolic of a special child coming in the LAST DAY A CHILD THAT WD COME OUTTA OF CHRIST LOINS TH H.G. HIS SEED,THE CHILD OF PROMISE that wd rule all nations. Th kingdom comes with the 2 nd Child th H.G. Its always th 2 nd all thru the bible. Wine is symbolic of th Spirit but it was th 2 nd Wine that was the best WINE ON TH 3 RD DAY I/E th church is gonna have to TRAVAIL AGAIN A 2ND TIME FOR THE BEST WINE THE MANCHILD TH H.G. THAT IS GONNA RULE ALL NATION. My lil children of whom i travail in BIRTH AGAIN till Christ is formed in you

  • Timothy Wayne George on Matthew 21:5 - 4 years ago
    The King James uses language that is different from the nomanclature of today. Ass is a donkey and Jesus fulfilled Zechariah 9:9 when he rode the colt of a donkey. This was the meek and just Savior having salvation who came to save us from our sins. So thank God that the Highest became the lowest that he could die on the Cross and redeem mankind from his sins. Accept this truth and you will be saved, your name will be written in the Lamb's book of life.
