Matthew 11-20 Notes

Matthew Chapters 11-20

Heal the blind, the lame, skin diseases, and the deaf-Raise the dead-Tell the poor the Good News

If anyone is not offended because of Jesus he is blessed

Towns where miracles are performed and no repentance, denounce them

All who are weary and burdened; Jesus will give you rest-Take up Jesus’ yoke and learn from Him, you will find rest for yourselves-Jesus’ yoke is easy and His burden is light (Jesus is gentle and humble in heart)

Jesus desires mercy and not sacrifice
It is permissable to labor in order to obtain food when you are hungry
It is permissable to eat food that is holy when you are hungry
The Son of Man is the Lord of the Sabbath
Do what is good on the Sabbath

Every kingdom divided against itself is headed for destruction, and not city or house divided against itself will stand

Whoever speaks against (blasphemes) the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven
Anyone who is not with Jesus is against Jesus
Anyone who does not gather with Jesus, scatters

The mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart [what is in your heart, is what your mouth speaks]
On the day of judgment people will have to account for every careless word they speak [For by your words you will be aquitted, and by your words you will be condemned

When an unclean spirit comes out of a man, it roams through waterless (dry) places [looking for a place to rest]

For whoever does the will of Jesus’ Father in Heaven, that person is Jesus’ brouther and sister and mother

Whoever has, more will be given [having more than enough]
Whoever does not have, what he has will be taken away

Seed sown along the path;
When anyone hears the word about the kingdom and doesn’t understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart
Seed sown on rocky ground;
One who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy-Has no root-When pressure or persecution comes because of the word, immediately he stumbles
Seed sown among the thorns;
One who hears the word, but the worries of this age and the seduction of wealth chokes the word, and it becomes unfruitful
Seed sown on the good ground;
One who hears and understands the word, does bear fruit and yields: some 100, some 60, some 30 times what was sown

Son of Man = sows the good seed
The field = the world and good seed; [sons of the Kingdom]
The weeds = sons of the evil one
The enemy = the devil who sowed the weeds
Harvest = End of the age
Harvesters = Angels
End of age; Son of Man sends out angels
Angels gather those who are guilty of sin and lawlessness
Angels throw gathered into blazing furnace [where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth]
Righteous will shine in their Father’s Kingdom
End of age angels will separate the evil people from the righteous and throw the evil ones into the furnace

A prophet is without honor in his hometown and in his household [Jesus did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief]

Jesus walked on water [before his death and resurrection]
Peter wanted to walk on water like Jesus, but fear and doubt came upon him

“Honor your father and your mother, and, the one who speaks evil of father or mother must be put to death” (a quote by God spoken by Jesus)

It’s not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man
Whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach and is eliminated, but what comes out of the mouth comes from the heart, and this defiles a man
For from the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, sexual immoralities, thefts, false testimonies, blasphemies [these are things which defile a man]

Matthew 15:24-48 [the woman and the bread crumbs] dogs = Gentiles, children = Jews

Giving the keys of Heaven:
Whatever you bind on earth is already bound in heaven
Whatever you loose on earth is already loosed in heaven

If anyone wants to come with Jesus;
He must deny himself
Take up his cross
Follow Jesus
For whoever wants to save his life will lose it
Whoever loses his life because of Jesus will find it

The Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of His Father and then He will reward each according to what he has done

“…if you have faith the size of a mustard seed
you will tell this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’
Nothing will be impossible for you
[However, this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting] (regarding casting out a demon)

Unless you are converted and become like children
You will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven…
Whoever humbles himself like this child {be humble like a child}–
this one is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven…
Whoever welcomes one child like this in Jesus’ name welcomes Jesus
…whoever causes the downfall of one of these little ones who believe in Jesus–
it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were drowned in the depths of the sea
…woe to that man by whom the offense comes
{Child/Children could pertain to an actual child or a believer in Jesus}

…don’t look down on one of these little ones, because I tell you in heaven their angels continuelly view the face of Jesus’ Father in Heaven [For the Son of Man has come to save the lost]
The Angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him (the Lord), and rescues them
And about the angels He says:
He makes His angels winds,
and His servants a fiery flame,

It is not the will of the Father in Heaven that one of these little ones perish…
{God wishes for all to have eternal life-not eternal death/torment}

If your brother sins against you; rebuke him in private
If he won’t listen; take 1 or 2 more with you
If he pays no attention to them; tell the church
If he does not pay attention still; let him be as an unbeliever to you

If 2 agree about any matter that they pray for;
it will be done for them by Jesus’ Father in Heaven
For where 2 or 3 are gathered together in Jesus’ name;
Jesus is there among them

Forgive a person 70 times 7 times from your heart;
for each time he sins against you

In the beginning God made them male and female…
…For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife;
and the two will become one flesh {one person}
…What God has joined together;
man must not separate {God joins a man and woman together in marriage, a man must not separate (divorce) them
Moses permitted divorce because the hardness of their hearts

The Kingdom of Heaven is made up of people who are like children

With God all things are possible

Everyone who has left houses, brothers or sisters, father or mother, children, or fields
because of Jesus’ name
will receive 100 times more and will inherit eternal life
Many who are first will be last, and the last first

Whoever wants to be great among you must be your servant
Whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave
The Son of Man did not come to be served;
but to serve, and to give His life–a ransom for many
