    Mt 27:51: "And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent".

    This was another great event that took place apart from Jesus' Sacrifice & His Resurrection. Right at the time of Jesus' death, at the evening oblation, the officiating priest would have seen this spectacular event of the heavy veil (curtain) that separated the Holiest Place from the Holy Place in the Temple, was torn apart from top to bottom. If man had cut it, it would probably be cut from bottom to top, but God showed that He did it, from the top downwards.

    This is significant for you & me as it is one of God's declarations that the Work of the Cross (that Work that was planned from the beginning of time for mankind's sins), was finally accomplished with the death of His Son Jesus Christ. His death not only was Jesus being our substitute to pay for our sins, but also averted God's Anger against us sinners. So the rending of the veil indicated that God also opened up the way for those who believe on Jesus, both Jew & Gentile, to now have access direct to God without the need for a priest to intercede or make sacrifice or oblation. Roman Catholics still go to their priest for confession, but the Way has been opened for us to approach God, through His Son, to talk to Him, to confess our sins, & to enjoy His Presence in our lives. Had Christ not died, had the veil not be rent, had not Jesus arisen from the grave, we would still be in our sins & stand guilty before God. Jesus' Sacrifice for us was truly great & for eternity & so we ever remain grateful to Him & growing in love & faith for Him Who has done it all for us.

    Two Bible verses the Lord brought to my attention a while back that gives me hope concerning the events in our time:

    If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they. Ecclesiastes 6:8 KJV

    Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee; hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

    For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. Isaiah 26:20-21 KJV

    The Lord WILL punish ALL sin, wickedness, blasphemy, abominations. We must pray for those committing such evil to repent and be TRULY saved. We also must pray for ourselves AND REPENT, CONFESS our sins to Jesus, beg His FORGIVENESS, be TRULY SAVED, OBEY HIM, and ENDURE to the end in Him, NEVER WAVERING.

    I must confess that I am having difficulty living in this world. I feel many times like the man of God who was hiding in a cave thousands of years ago from Jezebel who wanted to kill him. She had already killed all the Lords faithful. He was sure that he was the only one left who loved and obeyed God, but God told him that He still had (I think it was 7,000) faithful in hiding. Before God told him that, he was intentionally starving himself to death due to recent events throwing him into a deep depression. Until God encouraged and reassured him, he did not want to live anymore. Please forgive me, I don't remember where in the Old Testament it is. If you type in your browser "Who was the prophet that hid in a cave from Jezebel?" it should come up.


  • Lionjudah on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    "I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it." He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

    12I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.

    13And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

    14I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

    15That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

    16And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.

    17I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.

    18I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

    5And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

    6And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

    7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

    8And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

    Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
  • Chris - In Reply on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    I don't think there will ever be a consensus of the exact dates of our Lord's Birth & Death as it's not revealed in Scripture. I think most arrive at their findings from considering the start of Herod's rule, age of baby boys at that time, the start of John the Baptist's ministry, Jesus' age (30) at His Baptism/ministry (approx.), the Passover timing which was strictly adhered to by the Jews, etc. Some have even looked closely to past lunar eclipses, comets, earthquakes, etc. to establish a timeline. Even with all this, no one has come up with clear dates that can be agreed upon, which of course may be for a Divine reason. Who knows!
  • Steve B - In Reply on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    Hi Cheryl - Genesis Chapter 1 is an account of the creation in a step by step manner all the way through Genesis Chapter 2 v 3 where the creation story ends (It is a sort of bulleted fashion - at least that is what we call it these days). Then in Genesis Chapter 2 v 4, you start to reading about the creation story again, in a more detailed fashion. Once you realize that is happening it will start to fall into place. There are many areas of Scripture were a statement is made in one chapter and then repeated in more detail later in the same chapter or future chapter. May God bless your way!
  • Greg Beetham on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    I've tried to search for an answer but no luck so far. It isn't complicated, I'm interested for the moment in the dates at the bottom of the page directly below the centre margin with all the reference notes in my KJ version 1839 reprinted in 1949 (with helps).

    Are the dates shown in the New Testament e.g. such as 4 B.C. or 32 A.D. an approximation or is there verification somewhere about how they were authenticated?

    Thank you for your reply to my question on Abraham and Isaac

    This is what I'm getting at ...these things can come from your own head(wicked reasoning) .

    I am not questions Abraham or his faith in the LORD ,but just because he believed it was the True God did not make it necessarily so..... There is another interested party in all this that wanted to scuttle the Lords purpose in bringing mankind to its former good standing by his only begotten son Jesus the Christ

    How many times in history has he become an angle of light and tricked someone, Jesus warned us about , the wolf. Angle of light. The false prophet. The anti Christ . The leaven of the Pharisee . The son of perdition. And so on.

    My thoughts are that Abraham was probable tricked. Almighty God saved him from doing the deed because he had been tricked by that False God which many people in the world today are still chasing after. ( You will not be tested beyond what you can bear but he will make the way out for you so you are able bear it. ) Satan has tried to distroyed the Lords purpose and has failed every time and his end is near ,...... Down to the earth with great anger knowing he has but a short period of time.

    Jesus said " it is finished, I have conquered.

    Praise the Lord
  • The Bible showing what year 2020 looks like on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    Romans 1 speaks on perversions that people do to each other and kids too.

    Romans 1:26 and forward:

    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: [women laying with women]

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. [disease]

    28 And even as they did not like to

    retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, WICKEDNESS, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    It's not mentioned but surely in 2020 we can understand, since it's frequently on the evening news!! that our society is sex trafficking children of both sexes. Kids are grabbed off the streets in broad daylight.

    Pedophiles and kiddie porn addicts find many victims on Facebook!! Little kids tell where they live; they don't know the danger.

    Get rid of social websites! It's a killing field.

    Ask the cops that hunt the traffickers and pedophiles.

    You could never convince me that Facebook was invented for evangelism. It was invented to destroy AOL chat rooms and be king of social networks. I'm old, I saw people who had their whole lives imploded because they used aol to lead secret lives.

    Nowadays it's all out there in the open. Little children being destroyed. WWJ say?

  • Apostle Paul the Tent Maker on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    Wesley's Notes for Acts 18:3

    18:3 They were tent makers by trade - For it was a rule among the Jews (and why is it not among the Christians?) to bring up all their children to some trade, were they ever so rich or noble.

    People's Bible Notes for Acts 18:3

    Ac 18:3 Because he was of the same occupation, he abode with them. This is the first mention of the handicraft by which so often during his toilsome life Paul earned his daily bread. Every Jewish boy was taught a trade, and Paul no doubt learned his in Tarsus.

    Compare Acts 20:34, 1 Thessalonians 2:9, 2 Thessalonians 3:8, 1 Corinthians 4:12, 2 Corinthians 11:9.

    What an amazing testimony Paul had: born a Jew; became a high ranking Pharisee. Became a citizen of Rome: served warrants to kill Christians (see Stephens death).

    Confronted on the Damascus Road, on his way to serve more warrants: and was confronted by Jesus Christ.

    At the end of this chapter 18, Paul decides to minister to the Gentiles which was his calling. His entire ministry is a marvel when you consider all of the things he endured for the sake of His Savior. He did what he knew to be doing.

    Do we know what to be doing?

    Matthew 26:31-46

    Revelation 14:12-13

    It's not a law to do something for Jesus. It's an act of Love, a privilege, it's worship and adoration. Love makes us want to give love.

    That's Him, inside of our spirit and soul. Do you feel it? We are indwelled with Someone so powerful...that even death could not stop it. He walked out of that tomb in the glorious power of Love.

    God so loved the world! That He GAVE...his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him, should Not perish, but have everlasting life.

    Love gives.

    We give love because He loves us.

    Obeying laws is an insult to this kind of Love. We never can be good enough in our own power to emulate the God-kind of Love.

    It's simply giving.

  • Chris - In Reply on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    Ezra 9:2 builds up on what verse 1 had to say, i.e. the people of Israel, their priests & Levites had failed to separate themselves from the heathen around them, rather partook of their abominations. A part of their unfaithfulness to the Lord was their intermarrying with the heathen (taking women for themselves thereby corrupting the 'holy seed' = God's chosen people & opening up the way for further departure from the things of the true God). So Ezra isn't talking about incest here rather unfaithfulness to God & corrupting their Holy standing before God.

    And the same applies to us today who love the Lord through His Son, that we are "not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" 2 Corinthians 6:14. This applies not only in marriage, but also in our relationships & business interests. We need to converse with them, work with them, understand them & bring them the Gospel, but not to to be bound in a way that could distract us from truly following Christ, thus polluting the Holy Seed & Life God has bestowed upon us.
  • Borand - In Reply on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    Dear Chris

    Thank you very much for sharing your story and I am very happy that you found your way to serve God. In the past my life was very fortunate on many fields but I was ignorant and never acknowledged what God had done for me. Someone else has commented on my post, and only within few minutes after reading couple of posts, James 1 and Jeremiah this morning I have realised how ignorant I was. God was there, giving me opportunity to accept Him, giving me everything I needed but I did not, I was blind to see. Now I am asking God to do it again in my life, to accept my apology and to send someone else in my life who can guide me on His path. I fell that I had big chance but I closed the doors, I never had to ask God twice, he was there for me always, every moment, but I did not know that at the time.
  • Borand - In Reply on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    Hi Matthew Folkwein

    It was really encouraging when I read that you said that God might speak to us through others. I did not know that, but immediately after reading what you said I recollected past times when God did do exactly that but I was not aware until now. This recognition also revealed to me many sins I committed during those times. What you have said brought understanding of something that I kept missing for many years. I feel very sad about it now as I would have acted differently towards God, towards other people and myself. It was somewhere in me but I did not understand what it was - missed messages from God. I cant turn the time back but can only hope that God will not turn His back to me.
  • Borand - In Reply on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    Hi Freddieo

    Thank you very much for you comment and pointing me to James 1which I have read this morning after reading your post. I understand what you are saying, I do get impatient on occasions as sometimes I want to receive something more concrete than having fate alone, but I also understand that it is my problem when doubts arise. I am not hiding that I have occasional doubts but all I can do is continue praying and reading I believe. Thank you again.
  • The Spirit of Heaviness - In Reply on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    I see many people have responded to your post already, but some of what you said sent my mind backwards to when I was saved. I had no reason to have any doubts as I had a "Damascus Road" kind of experience as Paul did. When Jesus comes into our life, it doesn't always come with sunshine and a voice from above.

    Our spiritual house inside of us must be filled with the Holy Spirit, swept free of anything demons may use as doorways back into your home (not you); finally garnished with Bible study, praise and worship. Fasting from all media and just sitting silent listening for answers to your hearts prayers: for the Holy Spirits voice.

    When I read your post: He said 'spirit of Heaviness'. It is demonic and it is sent to destroy your peace and happiness in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit wants to end this interference in your walk with Jesus.

    The spirit of heaviness is in the Bible and can be verified by you that it's real. It has fruits that you will recognize as you study this. You nailed it, in what you said in your post. It's nothing be afraid of. The Holy Spirit is encircling you and protecting you; comforting you. He is going to teach you of this. And with His Help, you are going to cast this hindrance out of your life.

    I'm going to send you to a website that has an excellent teaching on this. Read it all. You are not afflicted with any mental weakness. But for some reason this thing is holding you back from Gods best for you. Are you into a gospel band or anything like that? Email me after you've read this article, ok?

    "Preach the word dot com"

    Find the teaching message on: "Deliverance From The Spirit of Heaviness"

    By David Legge

    (Put a Dot . where I spelled out dot

    Someone gave me a couple of tapes by DION: Kingdom in the Streets; and Seasons. Find the albums on YouTube. Demons HATE praise music. It helped me greatly to get free from the heaviness.

    Jesus loves you, and the Holy Spirit wants to free you.

    Feeling an action from the holy spirit, is a natural fleshly need. When you read Christ words, remember He is teaching you and me about the kingdom of God! We are learning about Him, while growing in his knowledge for all of us. He confirms His teaching and healing with miracles! Why can't we experience these same miracles? When we read Gods word,we may not see it or feel it, but know that the seed that has been planted in your heart through faith is growing! This is the miracle! When doubt creeps in remember, that He shed His blood , so that through faith you will become more like Him. When you become a child of God, you will conform into him! This is his amazing grace towards us!
  • Chris - In Reply on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    Borand, to add what Matthew has said about having faith: I'm sure you are expressing faith in your Christian walk; after all you came 'by faith' when you turned to Christ & that same faith keeps you walking each day loving & trusting God for all your needs. However, I've learned that having faith is not a passive gift or experience. Some pray & just wait for something to happen. Faith demands that we get on in our daily existence looking for the presence & Hand of the Lord to keep us & direct us. Also, there's not always a 'feeling' about the presence or power of God that one has - if we only looked for a feeling for proof, then our walk is not of faith. God expects His children to have implicit faith in Him no matter what our circumstance, whatever our wants or even when there seems to be silence from Him. He knows you love Him & are devoted to Him: as you pray & read from His Word, there will be times when suddenly the Spirit of God 'intrudes' into your prayer/reading to tell you something special or give confirmation.

    I have many examples, but one now: I attended a Fellowship in my early Christian walk that majored heavily on Missions. It was always a challenge to us: "Why are you still sitting here & not out there sharing the Good News?" So, I prayed for a number of years but there was no answer or urge from God. So, I continued in my Christian walk, going out each week with a group to share Christ on the streets (as was the burden on my heart). Then after a few years, while in morning prayer, the Spirit just 'intruded' into my prayer time, & burdened my heart heavily to go out & serve, giving me the Mission name as well. That burden wouldn't leave me so I left it all with him to direct me. Soon I got a call from a man from another country who wanted to buy my house, without seeing it & ready to pay whatever I wanted! I knew this was God' Hand. The deal went through without problems.

    Just trust Him as you walk each day with the Lord, He WILL guide you.
  • Matthew Folkwein - In Reply on Matthew 27 - 3 years ago
    Walking with the Lord will keep the Lord close. The Bible says He will never leave you or forsake you. God is listening but He may speak to you through others or His Word. Prayer is effective but you must believe and have faith. Faith comes from the Word of God.

    Why are we tearing through Adam and Eve, every single day????

    Yes there are 2 Enochs.

    Cains Enoch was born to Cain. That side of Geneology ended before the flood.

    Seths , Enoch was born on Seths side. His Enoch ancestor is the one that God took to heaven. His ancestor was Noah. That family line ALL survived the flood.

    Cains family tree ends before the flood.

    >Actually Google the Ancestry of Adam and look at the Charts.

    We all bear the burden of our judgments that we make about Gods creation.

    ie: Eve slept with Satan

    So question to get people thinking. "My God, My God why have you forsaken me"? Did God actually forsake Jesus? If so, does that make God a liar? Because He says in Deuteronomy 31:6 "...the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." He even repeats it in Hebrews 13:5. So does that mean that God loves us more than Jesus? His perfect son? The son who delighted in him? Well Psalm 147:11 disagrees with that. "the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love." So why did he forsake him? Is God a liar? Did he change his mind? no and no! "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine..." 2 Tim 3:16 and Hebrews 13:8, "Same yesterday, today, and forever."

    So we have a problem, either the bible is wrong or we're wrong. The common argument to this is that, "God's wrath was so much, because sin was so bad." To which I reply, is God a god of wrath? or of Mercy? "The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love," Psalm 103:8. They say, well it was a long time, but time is nothing to God, "With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." 2 Pet 3:8. No, God wasn't so angry. There's something else here. When Jews memorized the bible, they didn't have verses, they memorized the first sentence in a chapter as it's name. And guess where that first sentence appears? Psalm 22, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Read the Psalm, whether Jesus said the whole psalm and it was recorded as just the title or not, doesn't matter, that is what he meant, and his disciples new it. This isn't a psalm of poor me, but of love, mercy and restitution! Jesus's last words were, "They will proclaim His righteousness, declaring to a people yet unborn: He has done it!" HE IS PRAISING GOD! Not crying out! He just recited the prophesy of his death, bones out of joint, pierced hands, flogging to show bones! God didn't forsake Jesus, Jesus praised God!
  • Alexander BarMikiel - In Reply on Matthew 27:63 - 3 years ago
    There's an issue with traditional teaching on this. Other than it doesn't hold up to the actual Koine Greek in some places, the traditional view is that he rose on Sunday, therefore we do sabbath Sunday. But first, that comes from acts 2, "they gathered on the first day of the week" that is actually Sabbaton, they gathered on Sabbaton, or a "certain sabbath", not Sunday. Second, Jesus never says they are celebrating Passover, he is only telling them to prepare, if he was the Passover he had to die when the priests were killing the lambs for Passover, not after the feast. He died at Sunset what would be Wednesday night (for Jews, the next day starts at sunset), So he died Thursday (the same time they slaughter Passover lambs), was in the tomb at the same time as the Feast of Unleavened bread ( a sabbath), then Mary, Mary, and Martha went and got the oil and incense on Friday (when it wasn't a sabbath) and came to Jesus's tomb on Saturday, where they discovered him risen. This not only fits with Hebrew Scriptures, it also addresses the issue of if Jesus had sent Judas out on that night the disciples would have thought he was committing a sin by having him buy on the sabbath. There's no actual scriptural evidence he rose on Sunday, he would have arrived in Jerusalem the two weeks prior, as is custom. Also, the Passover lamb was supposed to be in the house 10 days, and that's 10 days before Wednesday, the day when Priests slay the lamb. If he had died Friday night, you're right, because it's Jewish, not Greek, night was the point of the new day, so he would have only been in the ground Saturday and Sunday, but he died Wednesday night, so that's Thursday, Friday, then Saturday.
  • Kurt - In Reply on Matthew 27:63 - 3 years ago
    Ain't it interesting that our Creator, and Redeemer, who gave Adam and Eve the Sabbath at creation--rested in death on the Sabbath He created. Later in both the 1st and 2nd testaments, the LORD Jesus Christ made it clear that His commandments were not for everyone, but for those that love Him. I tried doing the substitution principle for years, and made a decision that there are too many promises in the written word of God to let any sinful man tell me that I'm not able to trust the LORD for all of His promises.
