Hi
Next section

Mat 12:25  And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: 
Mat 12:26  And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?      


here the Pharisees accuse Jesus of casting out demons by the power of satan but Jesus rebukes them and tells them if this was true satan would be divided  and would result in his destruction but he is not divided and his power can be seen throughout the world our only safeguard is to remain in Christ here we are safe.
we know for certain that Christ will overcome satan who will be tormented in the lake of fire for all eternity.

Love and Peace

Hi

.  27  And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.

 28  But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you         


I think the children here mentioned are the disciples who were given authority to cast out demons and we are told elsewhere they would judge the twelve tribes of Israel although it was the Holy Spirit working through them that casted out the evil spirits only God has the power.
Then Christ proceeds to explain what it means if he casts out the evil spirits by the power of God then the kingdom had come to them Christ was the high priest who was to open the way through the veil into the holiest of all into the presence of God.
Christ has opened the way to the kingdom through his sacrifice and the sprinkling of his blood the life is in the blood.

Hi
Next section.

. 29  Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

 30  He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad         


The strong man's house of course is Satan's house and I think here it is Israel he had taken over Israel and led them astray away from the true God.
But here our Lord shows what power he has been given from the Father he can bind satan so he cannot interfere with the message our Lord had to give.
But those preached to still had the freewill to accept or reject unfortunately many rejected our lords message especially those of the ruling classes but those who accepted our Lords message entered a new house which is the body of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on.

Mat 12:31  Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 
Mat 12:32  And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.      


Here we have a solemn warning from our Lord which we need to take very seriously it really amounts to all sins can be forgiven except the sin against the holy Spirit will not be forgiven.
The Holy Spirit comes directly from the Farther when one sins Blasphemes against the Holy Spirit you sin directly against the Father and this will not be forgiven in this world or the one to Come so lets be very careful in what we say.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on.

.      33  Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

 34  O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh       


I think the tree here is Israel we know Israel is likened to an olive tree and we also our Lord came in the first instance to save Israel the fruit is what the priesthood was supposed to produce good fruit this would be the tribes of Israel but they had produced had fruit.
Then our Lord compares them as vipers reminds of the snake in Eden indicating that they were children of the devil and as such could not preach good things.

Hi
Moving on.

.    35  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

 36  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

 37  For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned       


Here we see how important the heart is and what is in the heart this is were God looks it we have a good heart full of love for our fellow man then we can speak good things which can save our fellow man.
But if our hearts are full of evil then we will speak evil which will cause all sorts of evil things in the world around us.
So take note we will be judged on what we say on what comes from our heart so make sure God's love resides in your heart so when we speak let it be God's love that comes forth.

Love and Peace

Hi
Next.

Mat 12:39  But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: 
Mat 12:40  For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.        


Here our Lord gives the unbelievers a sign the sign of Jonas who was three days and nights in the belly of a whale and it is very unlikely he could survive in there but God raised him up and sent him to preach to Nineveh God word and they repented and believed.
And likewise our Lord was in the grave three days and nights and God raised him up and authority to his apostels through the Holy Spirit to go out into the whole world to preach the gospel.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on.

.      41  The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment and condemn the people living today, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah. But look?something greater than Jonah is here!

 42  The queen of the south will stand up and condemn the people living today, because she came from so far away to hear the wisdom of Solomon. But look! Something greater than Solomon is here   


Here our Lord makes the point that those who repent and turn to the Lord will be raised up in the first resurrection and judge those who had rejected him.
He also tells us he is greater than Jonah in fact he is greater than all the prophets he is the son of God who sits on the right hand of God the Father.
He mentions the queen of the South who came to hear the wisdom of Soloman  indicating that those who seek God and his word will also receive a favourable resurrection..

Love and Peace
Dave
