Let us muse again today from Matthew 13:51 and the theme of Jesus the king. It is here a question is asked. Our Lord asked have you understood all these things. There has been seven parables taught and sobering truth about hell. They answer yea, Lord. Truth must be taken in and digested especially truth like this. I wonder how many then as well as now say yes, Lord and understand nothing about what they say. If one understands these truths it should cause major changes in the lifestyle that is lived.
Let us muse again today from Matt 13:49-50 and the theme of Jesus the king. In the text for today we find some sobering words about the end of the world. Our Lord will send forth his messenger to sever between the wicked and the just. Spurgeon said the separation will be done, infallibly, quickly, fully, and finally. Those who think it will be annihilation and they will burn up better look at the verbs wailing and gnashing, both or ing verbs indicating a forever action. This punishment should alarm us to warn the wicked to flee the wrath to come.
Let us muse again today from Matt 13:47-48 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today we see the parable of casting the net. What an admonition to us all to cast the net of the gospel into the sea of world. The net was brought in full. The sea contained good and bad creatures. The separation is not done until they sit down on the shores of sweet deliverance. It is then the good will be saved and the bad castaway. May we spend more time casting the net this day into the sea of the world.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 13:45-46 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our study today we find the pearl of great price. This man is a merchant and not a farmer and he finds the pearl because he is seeking. Let us remember God must cause us to seek, no man seeks of his own free will. When he found the great pearl, he sold all and bought the field. I believe this pearl speaks of the gospel once one has found it he sells all in order to have this pearl of the gospel. The gospel is powerful and lets us see that all is temporal in comparison to the Christ of the gospel.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 13:44 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our verse for today we see the found treasure. It seems a man while plowing finds a hidden treasure. He was not looking for it but found it. This confirms the scripture that says, I am found of them that sought me not. What a response to the treasure he has found. He sales all and buys the field. May this be our response to the gospel message when it has saved us to sale all and followed the author and finisher of our faith Jesus Christ.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 13:43 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today we learn of the shining of the righteous. Only yesterday we were told at the end of the age the tares world burn forever in the fire. Once this dark shadow is removed from the scene the righteous, God’s people will begin to shine. It will be a brightness brought on by Christ likeness and will be brighter than 1 million suns. he closes the thought with he that hath ears let him hear. These words should certainly perk up the ears of the righteous.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 13:40-42 and the theme of Jesus the king. It is in this text we have a sobering thought on the end of the world. It is at that time that the holy Angels will be called to be the executioners of the wrath of the lamb. It is then that the tares will be rooted up from the real wheat. It will be those who have offended which means to cause others to stumble. It will also be those who have practiced iniquity . They will be cast into the furnace of fire. I would remind us this is not the annihilation theory. We know that these folks will burn forever because we’re told there is wailing and gnashing of teeth. These are both ing verbs indicating for ever. What a horrible thought. I thank God because of Jesus I’m not going to hell.
