#2501Introduction to the book of Matthew
#2501aThe New Testament begins by establishing the "engendering" of the "Royal Genealogy", the Throne of David, the kingship line, the lineage of the King of kings,
#2501b Matthew now tells us a little of the "Christmas Story".
#2502 The next time someone tells you that Christ was a Jew (of Judah) let them know that, yes... He was of that regal kingship line of the House of David through which He is the King of kings, but He was also of priesthood line through the tribe of Levi through which He is the Lord of lords.
2502a When you sing along with "We Three Kings of Orient are...", don't confuse song lyrics based on tradition with scripture. We don't know how many wise men visited "The God Child" - We do know they didn't visit Him at the manger!
#2503The simplicity of the matter is that babies are not naturally born before the travail, but after the labor pangs!
#2503a This flesh age is only temporary and all that is "under the sun" shall pass away!
#2504Spiritually speaking we are in the wilderness today.
#2505 Satan is very knowledgeable of the scriptures and can twist and TURN around the Word of God ever so ingeniously and cunningly.
#2505a In order to "live" (as in eternally) man must partake of the heavenly manna, that spiritual bread from above which is the rich nutrition of the Word of God, which alone gives and sustains life.
#2506 The time has now come for Jesus Christ to openly begin His ministry.
give light to them that sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of
#2508Christ's current disciples are the sons and daughters in this final generation of the fig tree of whom it was prophesied would see (as in understand) the visions of the prophets (Act. 2) and teach God's Word to their brothers and sisters of the true House of Israel!
#2509 Did you know that Christ was divorced?
#2510 Speaking of gun control, Christ did not tell Peter not to carry his sword, but rather to put it back in its sheath.
#2511 "Do you seek to please God or men?"
#2512 "Just how does one make a "spiritual deposit" in heaven?"
#2513 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
In other words, if what you have plucked are nothing but the traditions
of men, like stories about snakes and apples, and rapture theories, and
Easter bunnies, etc., then you are barking up the wrong tree!
#2515a JESUS HEALS THE CENTURION Christ rebukes the "wind" and the "sea", and there was a great calm.

#2516 The beginnings of "sorrows" (labor pangs) which precede the birth of a new age.
#2516a Christ rebukes the "wind" and the "sea", and there was a great calm.
#2516b Christ casts devils out of the herd of swine.
#2517 Jesus and His disciples got along well with real "down to earth" people who were not "phony baloney" religionists.
#2518You "see", the sin of America in these last days is IDOLATRY
#2519 True disciples of Jesus Christ, students of the Word of God, know who the lost sheep of the house of Israel are.
#2520 It is written that most of our loved ones, though they call themselves Christians, will be deceived by Satan, the as the spurious messiah, and will believe in their hearts that he is really Jesus Christ, the true Messiah, when in fact he is none other that the "son of perdition", the son who has already been sentenced to die (Ezk. 28:18-19) and perish in the lake of fire
#2521 You must go to Jesus Christ, to the Word of God, privately (Mark 13:3) when you do not know something and seek revelation (understanding) by listening to His Voice, hearing His words in your ear ! Yes, His Word, it's written in your Bible!
#2522"What would it take for you to 'sell out' and compromise the Word of God? Could you be swayed from the truth of His Word because your family turned on you?
#2523The "curse" that comes before the second advent is the accursed one, the abomination of desolation, i.e. Satan as the false Messiah.
#2524"For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him."
#2525 If you think you know Jesus Christ and yet you are ignorant of His Word, you are deceiving yourself and headed for a great fall when the false-christ shows up.
#2526When you blaspheme the Holy Spirit, you have got big, big problems!
#2527 Do you know what the unpardonable sin is?
part of three days
and three nights don't our church leaders understand?
#2530Jesus Christ told His disciples that He spoke in parables for two reasons.
#2531 So if it "feels good", DO IT! And Eve took hold of the tree (asherah) and "Did it"!
you ever wondered why it is that Cain is not listed in Adam's genealogy
in chapter five of Genesis?
#2534Christ performs two miracles for the purpose of teaching His disciples (students), those of the brethren with eyes to see and ears to hear.
#2535 A wise person would therefore pay close attention to Christ's instructions.
#2536 One who takes His name and leads His children astray is going to pay an awesome price!
#2537 Christ is now going to take a side trip to the coasts of Tyre and Sidon and return in order to teach His disciples, which means you and me in these last days, a great lesson concerning the grace and mercy of our God.
#2538"Are you able to discern the times* (season) in which we now live?"
#2539 It is written and we have already learned in this great Book of Matthew that not everyone who says "Lord, Lord" shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.
#2540 You might ask yourself ,"What will you take for your soul?" So be careful what you do and who you follow!
#2541It was actually Peter's deep affection and abiding love for Christ that Satan was able to take advantage of in an attempt to hinder the very plan of salvation
#2542 Think about it as we spiritually discern His power and glory in today's study.
#2543Please know that If you ARE part of the kingdom of heaven, that His kingdom is NOT of this world (John 18:36).
#2544 (Matthew 6:11-12)."  "Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors
#2545Yes, Christ also heals our physical infirmities but as in all cases of His healing, it is the spiritual healing that is the most important and lasting for though your flesh is healed, it shall still die, but if your soul is healed it shall live forever.
#2546Christ wanted his disciples to see a picture with their flesh eyes so that they might be able to "see" with their spiritual eyes the real picture of what He was teaching them!
#2547But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
#2548 This is another "is like", an analogy acted out in the physical dimension so that we can see and understand on the spiritual level.
#2549As Jesus just said in Matthew 21:21, "It shall be done"! And so it SHALL... for it is written.
#2550 Many churches today concentrate more on fund raisers, pledges of money, pass the plate, building funds, etc., etc., than on teaching God's Word.
#2551 It is hard for many Christians to understand that Jesus Christ becomes a stumbling block, to those who stumble at His Word, i.e. do not hear His voice but rather follow the traditions of men.
#2552If you accept a spirit, which means "wind of doctrine", i.e. teaching, and you have not "received it", which means you have not "assayed" it by checking it out thoroughly in the Word of God, then you are in grave danger of being seduced my friend!
#2553Jesus let them know that He knew their game plan and what they were up to!
#2554 That is not opinion but exactly what God has said is the most important thing.
This 23rd chapter is an exposť on the hidden dynasty of churchianity.
#2559 Christ foretold us what would take place in this final generation.
#2560 And contrary to popular tradition, the tribulation of Satan as the false Christ, is a time of peace and prosperity when the world will believe that the messiah has come.
#2561The question is, how do we determine when the final generation begins.
#2562 It all depends on how wise you are!
2563 Don't misunderstand what we teach; We are not teaching salvation by works! But, by golly, your works will reflect the sincerity of your belief in the Lord!

#2567 "never say never", especially when it comes to God's Word applying to you!
#2568 Contrary to what most of us have been taught, Jesus Christ was not the least bit apprehensive about facing death.
This priceless lesson that cut to his heart woke Peter up to the reality
#2571 Isn't it amazing how even the very words the chief priest would say, mocking Jesus, while He was hanging on the cross were written and foretold of in Psalm 22, and our Father brought it to pass exactly as it is written.
#2572Our flesh eyes cannot see things that are spiritual because those things are invisible to our physical sight. To compensate God shows us physical examples that we can relate to and help us understand spiritual realities.
