The Wonder of Matthew: The Gospel of the Kingdom

Earth_from_Space

Hello to everyone out there on planet Earth! With all the darkness and evil filling the planet I am happy and glad that you have turned to this blog!

I have just finished reading a commentary about the Book of Matthew. He was one of the original disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ! He was personally called by Jesus to follow Him. WHO ARE YOU AND I FOLLOWING? All of us are following someone: either God (Jesus) or the devil.

Not Bread Alone

Not Bread Alone

At least give God a hearing and listen to His Word! Start reading the Bible each and everyday of your life. Even one Bible verses is better than no Bible verse. Jesus said:

“It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4

A great preacher of yesteryear used to call this God’s magnum 44! Anybody know who said it?

Did you know that when Jesus was crucified, someone lifted up a sponge so that He could drink (sip) some vinegar?

“…one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.” Matthew 27:48

You know what is so cool: The Highest Being in the Universe, the Lord Jesus Christ meet one of the lowest animal creatures, the sponge! I have been to Tarpon Springs in Florida, one of the sponge capitals of the area.

“…they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear His cross.” Matthew 27:32

In Jesus’s darkest hours, people stood up to help! Simon helped to carry the cross. Someone gave Him vinegar to drink. The Roman soldier said that Jesus was truly the Son of God, when the religious leaders of the day refused to declare that truth. The Mary’s stayed by the foot of the cross, by the tomb, and went there on Resurrection morning. Jesus first appeared to Mary Magdalene.His grace had cast out seven devils from her! If you are demon possessed, or controlled by any sin, go to Jesus without delay and ask Him for deliverance! Go to Him by faith and He will save you! Do not waste another minute of your life! Your soul is to precious to neglect. To Jesus go, and he will rescue you like He rescued Mary Magdalene!

Others were there to help Jesus in His hour of need. Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus went to get His body from Pilate! Pilate once asked Jesus: WHAT IS TRUTH? Don’t you want to find out what is true? Is the Bible true? Is the Quran true? Is there a Heaven and Hell? Is there life after death?

WHY AM I HERE ON PLANET EARTH?

Like the people above that helped Jesus, anything we do for Christ is a very high honor indeed. A Bible tract passed out. An invitation to Church. A drink of cold water to a thirsty soul. A kind word or deed done in the name of Jesus! Friends find something to do for Jesus. Use your gifts and abilities and talents to honor the Lord Jesus Christ! May all who read these words accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their own personal Saviour! We need the mercy, the grace, and the forgiveness of God! It is all found in the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ! May we see each other in Heaven someday! Your friend and companion as we travel along our ADVENTURE on planet Earth! The Golden Eagle will fly in again very soon! It’s off to the clouds for me presently…
