Matthew Chapter 27 Discussion



 
  • Margery F Wilson on Matthew 27
    Is there any place in the Bible that during the crucifiction Jesus said to one of the thieves being crucified next to Jesus that Jesus said to him "because you believe you will be with me today in Heaven".
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 27
    Margery, you can read that account in Luke 23:39-43.

  • RICHARD LAWRENCE BORYS on Matthew 27:25
    Why would people, let's assume were bad or at least wrong, to have pushed for the execution of Jesus, be right, worthy of being listening to, when they hold their descendants responsible, and by extension, blameworthy, as well as them? Should not the proclamations of bad, or wrong, people be held with suspicion?

    "Is this that (which) you were looking for?" was the voice I heard from a distance in a cloud many years ago.

    Beside me a lamb with eyes like a human and similar to the eyes on the Egyptian stone that I saw in a photo several years later.

    written in love.
  • Philip Christian Parks on Matthew 27:54
    Satan (Rom. 16:20) = "Satan" is the proper name of the devil and translates from the Greek (transliterated "Satanas"; pronounced Sat-an-AS").

    The name "Satan" means "adversary" (cp. 1Pet. 5:8) who opposes GOD and CHRIST, HIS Church, and every believing saint by any and all means and resources possible.

    The New Testament most often identifies Satan as "the Devil" which literally means "the slanderer or false accuser". Slanders and false accusations are just two methods Satan uses against GOD's people.
  • Philip Christian Parks on Matthew 27:54
    "the GOD of Peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly"; v.20 =

    There exists a perpetual spiritual warfare between GOD's People and Satan. If Satan cannot destroy Christians, he certainly desires to make them spiritually impotent, or worse, to cause turmoil within the church by destroying their peace.

    Paul's expression, "under your feet shortly", may allude to Israel's victory over the five kings of principle cities, led by "Adonizedek, king of Jerusalem". Joshua humiliated them (Jos. 10:24-25).

    The verb "bruise" had a far more powerful and descriptive meaning in ancient times, for it literally means to irreparably and permanently break or crush to death.

    Paul reminded the Roman saints, and the saints of all ages, of JEHOVAH GOD's pronounced condemnation on Satan for tempting Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3:15). There, GOD proclaimed HIS Ultimate SEED of the woman (Eve), namely LORD JESUS CHRIST "shall bruise {a DIVINE guarantee} thy (Satan's) head."

    Here, the word "shortly" does not speak of the occurrence within the very near future, but rather, when GOD does bruise Satan, HE will do so in a very quick fashion.

    The word "shortly" translates from the from the Greek adverb root (transliterated "tachu"; pronounced "takh-OO"), and derives English nouns such as "taxi" and "tachometer."

    The adverb implies that when GOD does "bruise Satan", the event will occur instantaneously and nothing will hinder it, nor will Satan have time to react.

    Of note, CHRIST used the same adverb to describe HIS Second Coming (Rev. 22:7, 12, 20). The adverb could mean "suddenly", "without delay", "soon", and "speedily".
  • Carleton - in Reply on Matthew 27:54
    Dear Philip Christian, Thank you! It does seem as long as time on earth continues that Satan can run to and fro even partially bound by the Gospel which is the finished work of Jesus at Calvary. His time is short now and his end will be sudden without mercy. God's faithful Church will prevail and many souls that have died the first death which is to sin, will with Jesus have everlasting life as a Holy, consummated marriage in Heaven. While time remains, Satan can suggest to the mind to do this or that but the True Christian saint knows to turn the mind the place of refuge at their born again experience and the comforting peace in their bosoms by God's grace and reign of Jesus Christ.

    There's a link out on the all red page that says: Become A Believer.

    It answers 99% of some of your questions. I know when you are a new believer, it's kinda daunting to find everything in one place. Start reading in the book of John; and then back up and read Matthew, Mark and Luke. Pick up again in the book of Romans. This is where we find most of the answers.

  • Dana on Matthew 27:54
    We are a Christian family. Having raised our children in an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church. My grown daughter, who no longer lives at home, had a question that I could not give or think of a satisfactory answer. My Pastor's wife could neither think of an answer that was adequate in explanation. The most I could come up with was that we are here, so God has friends.......aka to fellowship with Him. That is not going to be satisfactory for her. Does anyone have a better explanation? Thank you for your help.

    Dear Dana, what is your question?
  • Wilderness Voice - in Reply on Matthew 27:54
    We are here to bring praise to his name, for his goodwill and pleasure. God is Sovereign, we need him, not the other way around. I tell you my friend read his word, pray the answer will always come just as he sees fit.

    Below are some verses that cover this topic

    Philippines 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure

    Ephesians 1:5-6 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved

    Ephesians 1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

    2 Thessalonians 1:10-12 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Thank you Adam

    What response do I give my daughter for a direct question, "Why are we here?" "Why did God create us? What is the reason?"
  • Bro Barney - in Reply on Matthew 27:54
    Dana,

    My grandson had a similar question. "If God knew that Adam would fall and bring death into the world, why did He create us?"

    My answer was "Love." God wanted someone to love and be loved by. Why did you have children? Even though God knew of all the bad that would happen by creating man, He concentrated on the good; the love He would give and the love He would receive in return.

    He gave man the ability to choose because you cannot have love without choice. Without choice you have robots. So in God's great wisdom He saw man failing and prepared a way for him to be redeemed. All for the purpose of love.

    Joh 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    God bless

    Continuation,

    We must stay humble before the Lord. Give our lives to Him and follow Jesus Christ as He is the only way to our Father.

    I guess to end this post will be to "lukewarm" Christians. We are warned there is no middle road. It is one way or the other. Wide is the gate that leads to destruction and many go that way. Straight and narrow is the way to life and few that find it. You cannot serve two masters. You cannot drink of the cup of the Lord and the cup of devils. 1 Corinthians 10:21, Matthew 6:24. As this comes to Revelation 3:15-16. People who are walking the line are going to have to make a choice. I pray they make that choice today as no one knows when the Lord shall require our life. Or when our last day shall be.

    Another question I would feel to ask a believer is "are you ready"? Do you love the Lord enough to give your life for Him? As in John 15:13-14, Jesus states there is no greater love than to lay down his life for His friend. Matthew 16:24-25. Love is not perfected yet if you are still afraid as in 1 John 4:18.

    I will just leave some Scriptures for others. How we should focus on things above and not of this world. Live our life for the Lord to do the Will of our Father in Heaven. As all is conditional in that the closer you draw to Him the closer He will draw to you. God Bless you my brothers and sisters in the Lord.

    Wonderful words of spiritual wisdom and truth!
  • Richard in Christ on Matthew 27:54
    Hello my brothers and sisters,

    I just feel to write a post explaining my position of my "once saved always saved" feelings. As I will put feelings in two ways in that I am not here to take either side of this "belief" that can be taken out of context in many ways today.

    First is in the eyes of God and our Lord. There is no speculation of who shall be saved to the Lord. As stated He knows His sheep. He knows the hearts of each and every single person. Knowing us better than we know ourselves and who are His. Knowing the end from the beginning.

    In the eyes of man this may become a confusing issue, for some, and is very personal one person to another. Some of us in the Lord have been Blessed to have experienced things in our lives that prove how real Jesus Christ and God our Father are. I have been rebuked by a fellow believer by saying "God chose me". He retorted by stating "you were not chosen but called". I know in my heart God chose me to be His child. Why? Only God knows as I don't see myself better than anyone else.

    As another point I feel is how some people may ask "does Jesus Christ love me no matter what"? As I replied to this question in that I believe the more important question I think people should be asking themselves is "do I really love the Lord"? Even as the mouth is a powerful fire. Just as in this world talk can be cheap. As I'm sure most of us have experienced how a person may say one thing like "I love you" but do they actually show that love from the heart. Or has it just become a phrase?

    We who have been Blessed by the Lord to have been chosen by Him and know this. As me have a fire burning in my heart for the Lord. It is beyond words. Even though I know I am His I still humble myself every night, on my knees, in prayer begging for His great mercy and forgiveness to anything that I may have done that day that was not in His Will. Or anything that may have disappointed Him. Not even knowing If I did anything wrong.. God is so perfect..

    Brother Richard, I'm loving your posts! Keep on bringing the Word of Truth:)
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Matthew 27:54
    Thank you for your kind replies brother Toni. It brings joy to know a post of mine has touched someones heart.

    God Bless you.
  • Toni - in Reply on Matthew 27:54
    I'm Sister Toni by the way (LOL).

    But, it's so refreshing to read someone speak God's Word in truth, especially in the times we live in, where it seems so many people are moving away from sound doctrine.

    By the way, I wanted to affirm what you said about being chosen. I think you mentioned in a post that someone corrected you and said people are called.

    But, I was just reading today where the Word of God says, "Many are called but few chosen." (Matthew 22:14) So, lots of people are called, but only those who walk away from the world and take a stand for Christ and walk in Him daily, are chosen. Thank God for being a chosen vessel in which the Lord can use and dwell in!
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Matthew 27:54
    My apologies for that mistake my sister Toni. Forgive me.

    I very much appreciate your touching replies.

    Just as you stated in Matthew 22:14. That those of us who truly accept Jesus Christ as our Salvation and give our lives to Him. I believe have been chosen by God and are very precious to Him. As He is everything to us and knows our hearts. All being important members of the body of Christ. Not that I was trying to boast or anything when I stated that to him. Just what was in my heart. I was surprised when I heard the reply I received about that detail.

    Here are a couple other Scriptures of being "chosen". Ephesians 1:4, 2 Thessalonians 2:13, 1 Peter 2:3-5.

    God Bless you my sister in Christ.
  • Toni - in Reply on Matthew 27:54
    Brother Richard,

    May the Lord bless you richly as well. And thanks for those additional scriptures!

    The children of God must daily keep pressing toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in our Lord Jesus Christ!

    We have to be bold, stay encouraged and endure always like a good soldier in Christ.

    Stay strong my brother in the Lord!
  • Carleton - in Reply on Matthew 27:54
    brother Richard, I know what it (you) mean(s) in my heart!

    :)
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Matthew 27:54
    Thank you brother Carleton. It gives me great joy to be able to converse here with others like you who understand. Also to learn from my family in Christ as many here are much deeper in the Lord than I.

    Praise be the Lord for ever and ever!

    Have a Blessed day in the Lord my brother!

    Do you believe that a person who believes in Jesus & Jehovah will go to heaven when they die? How do you explain Psalms 37?
  • AARON DEVAPRIYAM on Matthew 27:54
    In Leviticus 23:17, why God says to bring 2 loaves of bread with LEAVEN? for the First fruits offering?Before it was unleavened bread ? So no leaven to be present to God.
  • Ron - in Reply on Matthew 27:54
    AARON, this is the second harvest, the Feast of Weeks what is called Pentecost. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is from the 15th -21st of Nisan no leavened bread is allowed in the houses or in Jerusalem during that time, these seven days where the only days leaven was not allowed. Passover day the 14th was a preparation day for this feast to clear all leaven out of the houses. The Head of the house would inspect the house using a brush to check even the cracks in the floor. The Feast of First Fruits was the day after the Sabbath following Passover day.

    Jesus was resurrected on the Feast of First Fruits the first day of the week. When Jesus first ascended to heaven, he presented himself and was accepted by God the First Fruits of them that slept. This explains why Mary Magdalene could not touch Jesus before he ascended because no one could partake of him before God accepted him.

    The second harvest was fifty days after the Feast of Fruits the day Jesus resurrected. They counted every day until the day after seven sabbaths which is fifty days the meaning of Pentecost. The Festival celebrates the start of the wheat harvest by bringing the first fruits of the harvest as an oblation to the Lord along with the sacrifices prescribed in the Law.

    The feasts were a shadow of things to come, Jesus fulfilled the Passover with His life and blood on the cross, the Feast of Unleavened Bread with His perfect sinless life, the Feast of First Fruits by His resurrection the first harvest which gives us the only hope of eternal life with Him, the Feast of Weeks with the baptism of the Holy Ghost on Pentecost the first fruits of the Spirit. There are three feasts left.

    I hope this helps and was not too much, God bless, Ron

    Sir, thank you very much for the explanation. Praise God
  • Sherry on Matthew 27:54
    Where in the Bible does it once you are saved you are always saved? Also I know some people who say if you repent of your sins you are trying to be saved by works, is this true ? If so where in the Bible does it say this.?
  • Adam - in Reply on Matthew 27:54
    Dear Sherry,

    It appears you're receiving mostly responses that de-emphasize obedience. I do not believe once saved always saved, because of Matthew 12:22-32 and so many other verses. I think if that was true Jesus would not have continually warned his followers (Christians) over and over through parables and stories about obedience and keeping His commandments and avoiding sin. It takes effort. It literally addresses this already in the Bible- saying that people used it as a license to sin and "abuse" grace: Jude 1:4, Hebrews 10:26, James 2:14-26, John 14:15, James 2:19. I fully believe all the verses others shared with you above, but unfortunately it appears most are sharing an imbalanced perspective. The Word speaks for itself and does not say once saved, always saved. Christians can and do turn from the faith, unfortunately, and sometimes a % go in the complete opposite direction and do horrific things, just like any other person can who does evil and follows the world or satan. I'm responding, because I think it's important that you not listen to men, but to the Word and pray and ask God for wisdom that you will know the truth. There are many false prophets and fake news being spread and we know who is behind that. God bless...
