Musing Through Matthew-Sign Seekers

Let us muse again today from Matthew 12:38-39 and theme of Jesus the king. In our study for today the Lord takes us into a study of the sign seekers. The religious crowd of our Lord’s day were ignoring all that He had done and wanted some new sign before they would believe. It is so today after thousands of years of seeing the gospel and Jesus work in the lives of people, we set it aside as just another religion. Our gospel is the power of God unto salvation, it will not be stopped by the sign seekers but will continue to save a people for which Christ shed His blood to save.

Musing Through Matthew-Every Idle Word Judged

Let us muse again today from Matthew 12:36-37 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today our Lord tells us that we will be judged for every idle word. Let us be careful with our opinions they are often but idle words and will be judged. Let us be careful of words said in haste or jest not being serious, they will still be judged. Let this be my cry, Lord set a guard over my lips and keep the door of my mouth.

Musing Through Matthew-Out Of The Mouth

Let us muse again today from Matthew 12:34-35 and theme of Jesus the king. In our study for today we find an illustration for out of the mouth the heart speaks. They have accused Jesus who is all goodness of being evil. He tells them that what is in the well comes up in the bucket. Their heart is evil and it comes up and out of them. Let us examine carefully what we say for it is telling us what is in our hearts.

Musing Through Matthew- Inner And Outer Match

Let us muse again today from Matthew 12:30 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our study for today our Lord tells us the inner and outer life must match. They are saying that the Lord has done a good work by the work of the devil. Our Lord says let us be careful when the inner life and the outer life match not to condemn the outer work that is done. It is impossible to know a person’s inward life. This is a very dangerous line we walk in condemning  the works of another without knowing if their heart is pure before God.

Musing through Matthew-Unforgiveable Sin

Let us muse again today Matthew 12:32 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today we find the thought of attributing the works of the Holy Ghost to the devil is a sin that will not be forgiven in this world nor in the world to come. Let us be extremely careful in saying what we think God is in or not in. Paul said if they name the name of Jesus he would rejoice.

Musing Through Matthew- A Sobering Text

Let us muse again today from Matthew 12:31 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our study for today we find a sobering text. Our Lord warns the religious crowd that they were drifting into a very dangerous path by saying the work of the Holy Ghost was the work of the devil. Let me take this warning to heart myself today. There is much going on today that seems to be a move of God and some say it is not but it is a work of the devil. We must be extremely careful in saying this. God’s ways are not ours what He does may not sit well in our little basket but to say it is of the devil’s work is very dangerous.

Musing Through Matthew-True Unity

Let us muse again today from Matthew 12:30 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text today we see our king’s  treaty on true unity. If you are not with Him you are against Him and He has declared war on you. This is the problem of today and the lack of unity. Our Lord will accept no compromise or truce in this area.. If you have not bowed to Him, centered your life in Him, He has declared war on you, and all you do.
