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.

Bless you for this...
Thank you Richard and thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the Lessons. Love, ~E
When we see how Satan tries to deceive us,and even had the gall to try to tempt Jesus,this shows he has power on this earth to waylay our plans for reaching salvation and our true destiny...we have free will,God loves us,and persons like you are placed in our path to see the truth,the light and the way...hugs...
I am so very grateful that the sunlight of the spirit is shinning on me, in me, and through me.
The lesson is clear...either you choose the darkness or you search for the light,and follow Jesus...thanks for sharing...
Yes Richard, that is so true and we also know that satan comes to kill steal and destroy and just like the saying goes, "Everything that glitters ain't Gold! It's so easy to get caught up in satan's tactics and this is why we as Children of the most high must continue to stay in Prayer and seek God's face daily, so that we don't get caught off guard because the devil is a conniving creature and very bold! That's why we have to be bold for Christ's sake and if we're rooted and grounded in Jesus, we have the ability to shun evil and temptation. Thanks for the comment about God placing me in the path of righteousness; there's no other way my friend, because I choose the right way, which is serving God.

Brother Richard, I lived in darkness for many, many years because satan had me bound and I was caught up into doing everything that I was big enough to do! I thank God for deliverance! Another parable or saying is this: "What's Done In The Dark, Will Sho Nuff Come To The Light!" So no matter what you do in the dark and think you're getting away with it...You can't hide from God...because He Is The Light!

Jesus accepts us all,no matter our humble beginnings...or class...we must commit and follow his way...his truth and change our lives and the world in the process...
Being blessed,is having the wisdom to acquire the ways of heaven while here on earth,as we connect to the Creator and see his great plan for us eternally...though the sermon seems lofty at best and idealistic,it is attainable and reachable and within reason and rationality...
This passage holds so much power and intention,it is amazing how applicable to my own life,that is for sure...meekness like kindness is mistaken often for weakness,but the teachers and masters like Jesus,have given us the foundation and framework for salvation and true happiness on earth,for if God be with us,who can be against us...thanks again,and my prayer today will be for more true meekeness in God's great earth...
