We thank God for the unadulterated Word Of God!  As we expound on the daily Scriptures, we will attempt to analyze each Verse, so that we can get a full (better) understanding of what God is saying to us.  In these studies, we will not have any heated debates or arguments.  We all have different opinions, so let us respect what one another has to say because even though my opinion may differ from yours, each Scripture has various meanings, but the same concept or idea, which may mean the same thing, so our opinions doesn't necessarily mean that any of them are wrong; I think that we should be optimistic in knowing that whatever we have to say could very well be the truth, so I would love for each of you to voice what's in your minds and your hearts with the utmost respect to God the Father & our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit... and also to each other.  So let us share our Knowledge and enlighten each other as we walk through God's Word...Let us make this special time Spiritual, enjoyable and a fun exploration.  Thank you all so much and I pray that you enjoy this time with God and be Blessed in the Word, daily!  Love & Peace, ~EarthAngel~

The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham: 

There are four gospels with a different emphasis in each. 

   Matthew wrote to the Jews,
   Mark to the Romans,
   Luke to the Gentiles, and
   John to everyone.

There are extensive quotations from the Old Testament in Matthew, more than in any other gospel.

Matthew began his book with a presentation of the ancestry of Jesus Christ.  (1:1-17) because of its strategic argument for the Messiah. Matthew presented the genealogy of Joseph, and Luke presented the genealogy of Mary.  (Lu 3) Thus, we have both a legal line and the blood line of Jesus.  Matthew proved that Jesus had the legal right to the throne of David. He had the the judicial and prophetic right to the throne. (2 Sa 7:8-18; Ps 89:20-37)

Philippians 3:18
 

"For many walk of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ."

Verses 18 and 19 discuss the enemies of the cross. The chapter closes like it began, "Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation." (3:2) To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

For many walk of whom I have told you often

In verse 17 Paul encouraged the Philippians to mark out those who are mature. Mature believers live on earth as if they were already in heaven. (v.20) Now by graphic contrast he sets forth the flip side–those who detract from growth. The negative crowd we run with, influences our values.

This is a major problem for teenagers who are in the "identity crisis." They gain their identity from what others in their group think about them. Teens are vulnerable to the crowd. When they are by themselves they seem to be fine. When they run with the crowd that is another story. They are easily led. Group pressure sweeps them along in values they would not otherwise hold. If they get into the right crowd where they can see living, flesh and blood, examples of those who walk with the Lord, the impact will be for good.

Paul reminded the Philippians many times of those who would detract from their lives. He told them "often." Paul employed "redundancy" as a valuable device. Leadership takes responsibility to constantly warn their followers of danger.

 

PRINCIPLE: Good leadership identifies negative influences and structures countervailing principles into the people they lead.

 

APPLICATION: As a leader in your home, do you forewarn your family about negative influences? Peer pressure cannot transcend fifteen years of values inculcated into the life. If our teens are secure enough in themselves that they can stand against the crowd, they have reached a maturity beyond most. If we are to build teens who are independent of social pressure, we need to communicate biblical convictions at a young age. We need many young men and women who, like Daniel, dare to stand alone.

So grateful that GOD is working on me in this area. I am finding strength in being humble and meek. I must admit that this has been hard but I am willing to do whatever my GOD wants me to do and I am claiming in Jesus name the victory. Thank you my sister .Adversities have come my way lately but I turned them over to GOD and he has strengthend me and I am praying for the ones who were behind it. The heartache is subsiding annd I do know that what GOD has for me is for me. This too shall pass! I am growing daily and for that I am ever so gratyeful.It is well with my soul.
Seeking his face and the kingdom daily. Thank you sister.
I love your analogies and explanation of righteousness,etc...it adds clarity and meaning to the thirst and hunger for our purpose and search here on earth,for God has a reason for every purpose under heaven...thanks for sharing again,and for bringing truth,definition and creedence to the Lord's reasons and will...

God did not write a book and send it by messenger to be read at a distance by unaided minds.

He spoke a Book and lives in His spoken words, constantly speaking His words and causing the power of them to persist across the years.

So thankful for his awesome grace and mercy.
Love this passage in the Bible,for we need more true peacemakers...thanks for sharing your look at the passage,for it is a call for us to be like God wants us to be...
How wonderful! Thank you for the inspiring words here.
There is always a saying salt to taste...so in order to be salt of the earth and pleasing in Creator's eyes,we have to adjust our lives to our Lord's taste,...and seeing the variety in this world,we all have some adjusting to do to honor and show God we are his salt of the earth...
Amen. Be fishers of men.
This verse is based on faith,and the hope that our Lord will make all things right according to his law and word...in the darkest hours it is hard to realize in our lifetimes that this will be done,but it is his will that must be done...
This passage is easily applicable today when you look at the righteousness of leaders secular or otherwise,who condone actions and behavior in the name of God ,which have no basis in the Bible or do not reflect his will...as a result they continue to keep others under their control and will,much like the pharisees,scribes and so called holy men...for what?
These words ring true,and I believe the dangers of lust and the weakness of the flesh leads many to fall prey to temptation and jeopardy with the Lord...thanks for sharing...
