    Yes because God himself shall wipe their tears away. And we will get to sit with Jesus in his throne Rev. 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. Seems above what we can comprehend, but it is what the Bible says.

    Hey Linda,

    Yes, it is for real, we will not be in these corruptible flesh bodies, 1 Corinthians 15:53.

    Revelation 21:1-3 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

    Revelation 22:1-4 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

    I don't think our human minds can comprehend what it will be like, I know I can't.

    God bless,

    Hi Linda The beatitudes list a number attributes or qualities that people need for God to make himself known. Now

    to litterally see God i take you togospel of john 1:18 where it says no man hath seen God but His son our saviour hath

    made him known. Also in John 4:24 God is spirit thats why His gift when born again is holy spirt.

    Linda,

    I believe it is true, as Jesus would not lie. When we die and live in again in eternity, we will be pure of heart because the sin nature will be removed from us. We will see God in Jesus our Savior.
  • Linda Harris on Matthew 7
    In the Book Of Matthew chap.5 In the Beatitudes it says Blessed is the pure in heart for they shall see God. Do they mean that for real? Would you actually see God?
  • RWhiteman on Matthew 7
    In order to keep the belief we must look at ourselves, we cannot judge as the world will.

    Then we can develop a true love with the author of love...TLG ..The Living God

    Hi dear "Ben Piccolino", Matthew 7:1-6 a long long time ago actually in the beginning of being born again i experienced these words in a very strange way. The experience may help you. Testimony: i was to open a meeting with words and prayer. It was 11 o'clock in the morning. Best as i should find a word these from Matthew came to me.

    In my mind i could not deliver these, thought then of the man who was to speak that it would turn out wrong. (At this stage i did not know the Lord very well: p).

    I rather found a hymn to open the meeting.

    As soon as I got up to open the meeting, I got a shred in my one eye! Now i did not think much about it, but the plague in the eye did not go away. It was evening and now the eye was really tender and red. The evening came and the house calmed down but my eye bothered me. Now I began to seek God in Jesus' Name. At 3 o'clock in the morning i promised the Lord and wrote a letter to this man. I did it right away. There i very humbled explained my violation and apologized for not acting on the word as i should. He also received the word from Matthew handed down. The letter had to have a stamp on the envelope so i had to wait until the morning to post the letter. And As soon as i put the letter in the mailbox it shook my eye well! It was a real lesson. After that, I've never been wiser than the Lord! So it was not my business to condemn this person for not being able to receive this word from Matthew. In retrospect, i have thought that meeting was not a success, it was a closed and dark meeting. The meeting gave us nothing, and everyone was happy the meeting was finally over. And everything was my fault! Such is my friend that the Lord does not think like me and you. He always has thoughts of peace. Had i read the words, the person who was to speak would have been freed from something it was bound by. And we will had a meeting with freedom and joy. Hallelujah shouts and thanksgiving. After that, I know that the Holy Spirit gives me words
  • Ben Piccolino on Matthew 7
    what kind of judgement is he talking about, and why does he speak against it.
  • Marke - in Reply on Matthew 7:12
    Christians can make good policemen because they understand that justice must sometimes be upheld with deadly force but they do not take pleasure in using deadly force. I speak generally because I know not all Christians understand this.
  • RichFairhurst - in Reply on Matthew 7:12
    (Not Duplicate)

    As proof that Matthew 7:12:

    12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

    is a restatement and probable expansion of our obligations under the second great commandment, Matthew 22:36-40 says:

    36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

    The end of verse Mt 7:12 and Mt 22:40 are basically identical.

    Jesus never made any statement like that when he referred to Leviticus 24:20, which in its full context in Leviticus 24:17-22 reads:

    17 And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death. 18 And he that killeth a beast shall make it good; beast for beast. 19 And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbour; as he hath done, so shall it be done to him; 20 Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again. 21 And he that killeth a beast, he shall restore it: and he that killeth a man, he shall be put to death. 22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God.

    This law was never given under the Law as the basis for vigilante vengence where individuals take matters into their own hands, but always fell on the entire covenant community under the Law to bring before judges that called for witness testimony before any sentences were passed or carried out. Also, any sentence that were be carried out as a result of this law against any stranger must equally be carried out on any member of the covenant community for the same offense to uphold the name of the LORD our God. So, take great care and don't apply it lightly.

    Then u have not submitted fully to God's Will for u . When we say : Thy Will be done , we have to mean it . Jesus was sinless . The Jewish leaders had no cause to kill him but they bent and twisted their law in order to kill him . Jesus didn't have to let them do that . He had power on earth to do anything that he wanted to do . He chose to submit to his Father's Will .That's what we as Christians r also supposed to do . It's not always easy for sure . But it's what we r called to .

    Yaaaaaay ! Carleton ! We missed you ! It's fab to read a post from you ! You made me smile a huge smile today ! I've been reading you on and off for a couple of years now , so glad that you are ok . Much love in Christ .
  • Ryan Stanley Taylor on Matthew 7:12
    Matthew 7:12 is just like its an eye for a eye and a tooth for a tooth. First Jesus Christ himself wants our weapons then teaches us how exactly to be righteous person then returns our weapons. To much forgiveness leads us directly into wrongful persecution and makes us easy to attack. We must have a certain amount of justice and be humble enough but not allow the enemy to much injustice because they take advantage over us and they will not physically learn nothing but they can have their ways easy and we will all suffer wrongful persecution which I will never allow myself willing into slavery or anything wrongful persecution I will suffer persecution for love and righteousness but never allow myself willing into wrongful persecution for no God ever.

    Hello Sara. Are you enquiring about the date of writing of the Gospel of Matthew? No correct date or year can be given as no such records have been kept. However, somewhere in the 60s AD is generally the years given for the writing of that Gospel by Matthew; some even give it an earlier date. And the Gospels would have been available to the Church & Church Fellowships farther away, some time later, but within the 1st & 2nd centuries. Luke 1:1-4; Acts 1:1,2.
  • Sara Oberle on Matthew 7
    I am wondering when the original work for Matthew 7:1 was published?

    Thank you,

    Hi Mike.

    According to scripture, there seems to be a downfall to every country for one reason or another.

    God bless.
  • Mike Jones on Matthew 7:2
    A house divided against itself cannot stand. The egregious racial divide is the down fall of this country. God is no respect of person..

    Boniface,

    God did work a wonder in bringing forth our country. Our country offers an individual the greatest freedoms of any country in the history of the world. We should hope to preserve it and make it better than what it has regressed to become.

    I am dismayed by the hatred aimed against our country and the strong and good foundations on which it was built. I pray tat God can bring revival to our country and set it aright once again to be a shining beacon of hope (the gospel) and "light" (of Christ) to the world. I remember President Ronald Reagan well the way he uplifted the view of our country in a positive and helpful way. May God raise up a President for us who will be led by righteous principles and faith in God.

    Our country was created by much blood, sweat, and tears. It has been preserved by much blood, sweat, and tears. It may need to be restored by much blood, sweat, and tears, as well. Let us labor in prayer for our country.
  • Boniface on Matthew 7
    Do not give away what is most precious to those who would destroy it.

    Our country is precious to us, so let's not give it away to those who hate it and want it destroyed.

    If we do, they will end up tearing us and our civilization apart.

    Tell this to all those liberal "Christians" who support open borders!
  • CHUCK on Matthew 7
    Sheila you are wrong water baptisim does not save, only the blood

    of jesus christ. col 1-14 in whom we have redemtion through his

    blood even the forgiveness of sins, not water but the blood saves sinners, the thief

    on the cross did not need water he needed the blood of jesus christ to forgive

    him, once you have been born again spiritually you will want to obey gods

    commands of baptisim but it does not save you from hell, repent and believe the

    gospel saves the sinner, churches are teaching you false teaching you are either

    oneness heresy or church of christ heresy. repent of this lie. heb 9-22 without the shedding

    of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.
  • Sheila Middleton on Matthew 7
    To be born again you have to be baptized.first believing that Jesus is the Son of God.then baptized in Holy Spirit in water.then you will be added to the Churchill teaches that in the book of Acts chapter2

  • S Spencer - in Reply on Matthew 7
    Hi Sarah.

    Lets put this verse in context.

    In the previous verses the Lord is speaking of false teachers and how to identify them. -

    Matthew 7:15-21. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

    Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

    In verse 22 he gives the contrast of the deceptive vain works of those mentioned.

    If you noticed the Lord never challenged them in their proclaimed works

    The Emphasis is being deceived!

    He said I NEVER knew you.

    You see in the scripture unbelievers prophesying.

    EXAMPLE: John 11:49-51. And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

    Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

    And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

    This group in verse 22 was NEVER saved!

    Jesus says I NEVER new you.

    It's not what you know, It's who you know and who knows you!

    John 10:26-28. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

    ( MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, AND I KNOW THEM, and they follow me:)

    And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

    Your fruit reflects what has been changed on the inside.

    God bless.
  • Sarah Wilson - in Reply on Matthew 7
    Thank you for helping me. I am a born again believer and trying to understand more of God's word so that I can grow and be in His will.
  • Sarah Wilson - in Reply on Matthew 7
    Thank you so much. I went back to Matthew 7 and reread verse 22 and I see it now. This will trach me to slow down and notice what I am reading a lot closer. I appreciate that you answered so quickly.
  • Fred Scanlan - in Reply on Matthew 7
    "Casting out Satan" . A witness who loves Christ and His words will do much more than cast out satan. You are not of the world, if you are a true believer in the gospel, you will cast out even demons! Unaware you may be of these things, you are bringing a soul closer to His redeemer! Opening the eyes, that live in darkness! You are a child of God!

    God Bless you Sarah!
