  • Jesus knows on Matthew 7
    Matthew 7.23

    Jesus knows those that follow him and obey his voice now and forever .

    Unfortunately there are many that follow a different Jesus and they do not find out until Matthew 7.23

    Don't be fooled by them or there claims , just do what Jesus of the bible says and do not make a show of it like Pharisees.

    Regarding Matthew 7

    Good scripture to ponder...

    John 3:16,17 this scripture reaches.

    Jehovah is glad Psalms 83:18. In Harmony with

    the well thought out scripture at Matthew 7

    Thanks for sharing with us

    Hi AG Peterson.

    AG Peterson Angel cards Throw them out!
  • Sacha - in Reply on Matthew 7
    Please destroy them and throw them away . They can be a terrible temptation to you or any one who finds them . I don't really want to go into details but feel I owe you an explanation for my strong reaction . I know that God is King , His rule is supreme . I also know that I can't even pick up a deck of ordinary playing cards and I know things about people that they have never told me . That's as far as I'm going with this except to say , please , destroy them and throw them away now . Never have anything to do with any one who says they are psychic or a medium or spiritualist .
  • Dianne - in Reply on Matthew 7
    AG Peterson The person playing with a full deck is Jesus Christ all others are cheating, and the only way to know Him is through Gods Word, He is the True Shepherd, John 10:9+10 The thief cometh not but for to steal and to kill and to destroy I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly. In Gospel of John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy word, thy word is truth. There's no other source for truth Gods Word makes known Christ. God Bless

    Connie,

    This comes from Matthew chapter 7. Jesus said in Verse 24, "Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and does them, (notice the emphasis is hearing the sayings of Jesus), He says the sayings of Mine; and does them, I will liken him to a wise man that built his house upon a rock."

    And by the way the word rock used here is the word (PETRA), the same thing that Jesus told Peter, and we see that in Chapter 16 where Jesus says "Upon this rock I will build my church."

    It wasn't Peter! Peter is (PETROS). PETRA is a completely different word which refers to Christ. He is the PETRA. It is the designation for Christ and His word in scripture. So Jesus says that everybody that hears these saying of mine and does them will be like a wise man that built his house upon a rock and when the storm comes (which is judgment), his house will stand.

    In Verses 26 and 27, Jesus is saying everybody that hears these words of mine. Jesus is making Himself the authority. He didn't say to them, I just gave you a commentary on the law. He says, everybody that listens to these words of mine, and does them. But He tells them that those who do not do them, their house is going to fall. Oh my goodness, that is not going to sit too well with the religious people who are listening to Him speak!

    Matthew 7

    24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

    25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

    26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the SAND:

    27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
  • Ronny on Matthew 7:22
    What's important is doing the will of the father is my take on this .

    Many going about doing things their way . They had no connection to God what so ever , deceived and deceiving. There was no cure for them . So beware they do not follow Gods instructions. Seek to be wise and follow , remember most are on the wide and broad way that leads to destruction.

    If you are a blood bought believer, and keep choosing to sin then you will not be allowed into the Kingdom of Heaven. You are not following His Word.
  • Charles R Peek - in Reply on Matthew 7:23
    If you are a born again Christion, you are in the kingdom of God, and will go up in the Rapture. The kingdom of heaver is the 1,000 year reign of Christ and is for those who make it through the Great Tribulation.
  • S Spencer on Mathew 723 - in Reply on Matthew 7:23
    Hi pamela.

    Matthew 7:23. And then will I profess unto them, I ( never ) knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    The key word in this verse is "never".

    You can't loose what you "never" had.

    They were "never" a blood bought believer.

    You can't loose eternal life, If you have it today and loose it tomorrow it wasn't eternal.
  • S Spencer on spiritual fornication on Matthew 7
    Thank you Chris on those great verses on fornication you gave. You presented it as a broken relationship between "two" it made me think of a key word in marriage, "Joined". (To be yoked together). That brings me to also think of spiritual fornication, If fornication was any other way than the way you described it, we wouldn't understand the meaning of spiritual fornication. I believe God gives us marriage not just for barring children, but to communicate Christ relationship to the church, and Gods relationship to Israel. Not to mention how would we understand the book of Hosea? We see often in the old testament God called Israel his wife and he was a husband to them. Here is one of many:

    Isaiah 54:4-5. Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.

    For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called. Here is one of many verses Israel committing fornication, Jeremiah 3:8. And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

    For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God. Fornication defined properly is essential to understanding scripture.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 7
    I very much agree with you Steven. The marriage that God had designed for the union of man & woman on Earth is indeed the clear reflection of the intimate union of God with His people, first Israel & now those under Christ's Blood. When we examine the two (the spiritual & the physical sides of marriage), we do see so many similarities of intimacy, of belonging, dependency, openness, heartache when one is absent, to name a few. And the Spirit of God's Passion is to ensure that the marriage bond remains strong, vibrant & spontaneous, giving special meaning to our call: "Our Father Who art in Heaven". He is more than a Creator Who oversees our lives & activities yet estranged from us by distance - God is our Father Who longs that we look to Him & respond to Him as His very own, enjoying the same intimacy that His Son had with Him while on Earth.

    Can we then, with the eye of anticipation & longing, even imagine what the Marriage Supper of the Lamb will be like? Both the Bridegroom & Bride longing for that day, & that waiting & watching by faith finally realized, when faith becomes sight. So what a witness the world has of a Christian marriage: one devised & sustained by God alone; & how important that we present Christ, not only by the Gospel, but also by our lives/our marriages/our God-fearing children, or else, all sense of the knowledge & consciousness of God will be gone.
  • The Holy Ghost on Matthew 7
    IT IS SINFUL TO DIE A BODILY DEATH. For Jesus Christ IS come in his own flesh (with GOD, having made the whole world to know that Jesus Christ IS come in the flesh, even raised from the dead.) So, IT IS SINFUL TO DIE A BODILY DEATH. He that says he loves Christ, yet says he shall die a bodily death, he IS a hypocrite, a liar, a devil, a serpent, a viper, a deceiver and an antichrist. Any (who are not of the few remaining souls of Israel, being eight,) saying he or she must die a bodily death, IS as the chaff AFTER the harvest, yea, clouds without water; scribes and Pharisees foaming out THEIR OWN shame which is all unrighteousness, without faith, BEING DEAD, walking in darkness while speaking corruption. For VERILY I say unto YOU: IT IS WRITTEN IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, and SPOKEN, of GOD: Follow me; and let THE DEAD BURY THEIR DEAD. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him SHOULD NOT PERISH, but have EVERLASTING LIFE. This is the will of him that sent me, that every one which sees the Son, and BELIEVES on him, may have EVERLASTING LIFE: and I will raise him up at the last day. GOD IS not the GOD of the dead, but of the LIVING. For the living know that they (they, being interpreted, are the wicked, being dead while preaching death,) shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Except those days should be shortened, there should no FLESH be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. THIS mortal MUST put on immortality. Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and MANY THERE BE which go in thereat: Because strait IS the gate, and narrow IS the way, which leads unto life, and FEW there BE that find it.
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Matthew 7
    As with my brothers Spencer and Chris I am confused with your post.

    Writing "He that says he loves Christ, yet says he shall die a bodily death, he IS a hypocrite, a liar, a devil, a serpent, a viper, a deceiver and an antichrist." Bodily meaning something to do with, or concerning, the "body". Our physical body. Our physical body is temporal. Unless something like a "rapture" happens at some time, for some people, along with the only two people in history ever to be known of that did not experience physical death. Everyone is going to "die" physically. As in Ecclesiastes:

    7:1 A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth.

    12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

    Please explain your definition of "bodily". Thank you.
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Matthew 7
    Hi Richard, The dust that you said returns to the earth is the body I have in mind, it returns absent of the spirit, it shall be raised a spiritual body.

    1 Corinthians 15:42-44. So also is the resurrection of the """Dead.""" It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

    It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

    It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. Thank you
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Matthew 7
    Do you feel comfortable addressing yourself Holyspirit and state something so contuary to scripture? That's scary!!!
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Matthew 7
    PLEASE Explain your comment, this is very confusing
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 7
    You write: "IT IS SINFUL TO DIE A BODILY DEATH". What are you suggesting here? That we don't die physically? Or do you mean something else? Isn't bodily death a result of sin, rather than the cause of it? Your thoughts are perplexing.

  • Joshua on Matthew 7:23
    Matt 7:21-29

    Keep in mind that God only cares about what's truly and sincerely in our hearts. He doesn't care about what words we say. There is no "magic phrase". We can say "Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus" all day long - If we don't believe in our heart, God doesn't care about it. He doesn't hear it.
  • Heart Knowledge and Faith on Matthew 7
    For those interested in how all the animals were brought to the region of the Ark:

    You can study the weighty subject/science of Continental Drift theory or Pangea. See the maps, etc.

    Or like me you can simply have faith that when the Godhead speaks; necessary changes happen.

    My evangelist heart always wonders what does this have to do with us being born again into Jesus Christ?

    Not only are we going with Jesus to heaven, but we now have The Mind of Christ: to understand mysteries of heaven and earth.

    BUT first we must be born again and receive the Holy Spirits Baptism. He is the Spirit of Jesus Christ: the Word of God. He Teaches Us about Jesus; He opens up the mysteries as we are able to receive it. The more you know about Him, the more you will be able to understand His purpose and His work in the Believers.

    Our total reliance on Him, determines how much Rhema he opens up to us.

    We have to submit to being milk fed babies in the Word as our Faith and Obedience to the Word causes a deep inner hunger for the MEAT of the Word. God uses "food" to grow us up. We are to be Followers of Jesus in our walk with God.

    The Holy Spirits ministry is to oversee our growth as Christians. HE IS OUR TEACHER.

    You're going to have to talk to Him, and then listen for his reply. If your home life is noisy and filled with interferences, your ability to hear the Holy Spirit is diminished. You have to work that part out.

    Eating the Meat of the Word will change you! It is full of wonder. Your spirit is enlarged to receive more. Desire the pure milk, but study and let your prayer life (communication) to and from God, grow. Your faith will be huge.

    Our model to pattern by should always be Jesus. His mercy and grace towards people teaches us how to dial down our personalities somewhat; and dial UP our faith in Him. If we eat the fruit and throw away the seeds in the trash; how can anyone be saved? The seed is the scripture you store in your heart

    What causes the falling away before the anti christ ?

    I know it's a speculative question, but maybe someone has some insight granted but God .
  • Steven Spencer - in Reply on Matthew 7
    Today status and serving seems to be the biggest focus amongst most church goers, now before we proceed, i go to church and love it, and i serve. but so do people in cult religions, we tend to try to teach discipleship, disciple means to follow some ones teachings, we are supposed to follow Jesus teachings, you cant do that with out the holy spirit which equipts us with the fruit of the spirit. Jesus apostles commanded to go out and preach to the world but to WAIT on the HOLY SPIRIT! we are identified as his disciples by the love we show one another read john 13:34-35. study all of john ch 13, you see the washing of the, you see a lesson in restoring and humility. the Jews religion was services which was a outwardly action, Christ in you is an inwardly action reflecting outwardly, look what Jesus tells the Pharisees in Mathews 23:25-26.. Woe unto you Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. today we compromise the truth, neglect the spirit, separate ourselves by pride, try to grow the church in volume apart from the gathering of the Holyspirit. the opposite of the way the church started in Acts 2:46-47. Lets pray we LOVE ONEANOTHER.
