Matthew 19 Verse 9 Meaning

Matthew 23 verse 33

I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery.

Jesus was explaining to his disciples about marriage between a man and a woman. This conversation came about because the Pharisees asked Jesus if it was lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason.

Jesus told the Pharisees that when a man and a woman unite as a married couple they then become one flesh.

They are no longer two people, but under God they unite to become one. So therefore what God has joined together should not be separated by any human. That’s why in the marriage vouws the paster/minister says, Until Death Do You Part.

This means that only God should end the marriage when either partner passes away.

The only time that a man is allowed to divorce his wife is when she has had an affair with another man or woman.

If a man divorces his wife for any other reason and then remarried another woman, he is comitting adultery.

Married couples need to realize their commitment to each other is for life.

Any married couple with the guidence from God will be able to overcome any situation in their marriage

Adultery is one of the 10 commandments. This is a major sin we must avoid at all costs.

Matthew 18 Verse 23 To 35 Meaning

Matthew 23 verse 33

Verse 23 Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. Verse 24 As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand bags of gold was brought to him. Verse 25 Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt. Verse 26 At this, the servant fell on his knees before him. Be patient with me, he begged, and I will pay back everything. Verse 27 The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go. Verse 28 But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred silver coins. He grabbed him and began to choke him. Payback what you owe me he demanded. Verse 29 His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, Be patient with me, and I will pay it back. Verse 30 But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. Verse 31 When the other servants saw what had happened, they were outraged and went and told their master everything that had happened. Verse 32 Then the master called the servant in. You wicked servant, he said, I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. Verse 33 Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you? Verse 34 In anger, his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured until he should pay back all he owed. Verse 35 This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.

Verse 23 To 35 Meaning

These verses are the parable of the unmerciful servant. Jesus was explaining to his disciples what happens to a person when they do not forgive other people for their wrongdoings.

In these verses the king is God, the master is God, the servant is us, the debt is our sins and the jailer is hell.

What God wants us to do is to turn to him and ask him for forgiveness for all our sins we have committed. He is a merciful God. He will forgive you.

Then he also says that we must forgive everybody that has sinned against us because he has forgiven us of our sins. We must love our fellow humans as he loves us. No matter what they have done wrong. Remember God will forgive you no matter what you have done wrong.

You need to love others as you love yourself. God is waiting right outside your door. You just need to open that door and he will come running in. Don’t forget to close the door once God is inside, to prevent unwanted enemies to enter.

We need to remember God will also get angry with us if we do not obey him. So if we do not forgive others from our hearts as God has forgiven us, on the day of judgment he will be asking us why we did not forgive others?

If we do not forgive God will send us to hell and be punished for all the sins we originally committed. That is what Jesus is saying in verse 34.

This is confirmed in verse 35 as Jesus says, “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”

Please, ask for forgiveness. Read the bible and be filled with the holy spirit and knowledge to lead a righteous life.

Matthew 18 Verse 18 Meaning

Matthew 23 verse 33

Verse 18 I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Verse 18 Meaning

Jesus is saying that whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven. Therefore whatever good deeds we do on earth for other humans, that deed will be recognized in heaven.

These deeds will not be forgotten in heaven and will be to our benefit on judgment day.

Every person we can save, and full them with the holy spirit and deliver them from the abyss, this will be noted in heaven.

Jesus said in the book of revelation that every person will be judged on what they did during their time on earth. The judgment will be to the same extent as their actions on earth.

Therefore all the righteous acts we do on earth are recognized but so are all the unjust acts we do. We will be judged on these as well.

We can’t hide from the unjust acts we did. Jesus has seen what we have already done. What we need to do is ask for forgiveness and lead a righteous life from now on.

Matthew 18 Verse 8 To 9 Meaning

Matthew 23 verse 33

Verse 8 If your hand or your foot causes you to sin cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire. Verse 9 And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.

Verse 8 To 9 Meaning

Jesus is trying to make us understand that, what is making our sin needs to be stopped. We do not have to physically cut or remove a limb from our bodies.

But what is important is that our sins need to halt or else we will be thrown into the eternal fire which is hell. Jesus is using these extreme examples to highlight the importance of stopping ourselves from sinning and to live a righteous life.

We must hand our lives over to God. We must be born again in the holy spirit. So that we can live our lives according to the teachings of the Bible and be able to enter into heaven and have eternal life.

Jesus makes it very clear, that sin will not be allowed to ENTER LIFE which is heaven. But instead, a person will be thrown into the fire of hell. Hell is real because Jesus mentions hell in many verses within the Bible. Amen.

Matthew 18 Verse 1 To 3 Meaning

Matthew 23 verse 33

Verse 1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? Verse 2 He called a little child and had him stand among them. Verse 3 And he said I tell you the truth unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Verse 1 To 3 Meaning

Jesus’s disciples were asking Jesus who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Jesus gave the disciples a very clear and easy answer to understand.

This answer is for everyone to take note of as it is not specifically aimed at only the disciples, but to all that live on this earth.

Jesus called a child to come to stand among him and his disciples. Jesus said that unless we change and become like a little child we will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

So what exactly does Jesus mean when he says this. Our emotions and ways about us needs to be like a child’s emotions. Meaning that a child is loving, compassionate, forgiving, honest, righteous and humble.

If we do not get our thinking and emotions in order, especially when it comes down to how we treat and think about other people. There is no way anyone will enter into the kingdom of heaven

We need to get ourselves right from within ourselves. I want to ask you. Is it worth taking a chance through life and hope that you have done enough to be let into heaven? Are you willing to take a gamble and see what the outcome is on judgment day? I certainly don’t want to.

Because the time will come when Jesus will judge each and every one of us on what we have done for him and his kingdom while we were alive. If the odds are against you, there is little or no chance for forgiveness.

The chance is over. Unfortunately, those people will be sent to hell where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth for eternity. That means for eternity you will be subjected to eternal punishment according to what you did on earth.

I do not want anyone to be sent to hell. I want everyone to have eternal life. My best advice is to pick up your Bible and start reading it. As this is the only book in the whole world that will show you the way to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord and savor.
