DAILY DEVOTION


HI!

TUESDAY of PASSION WEEK:
While Jesus was teaching,
some of the Pharisees and Sadducees attended
trying to find something with which they
could charge Him lawfully.

SCRIPTURE______________________________

Matt 22:29-32
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not
knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
30 For in the resurrection they neither marry,
nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of
God in heaven.
31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead,
have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by
God, saying,
32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac,
and the God of Jacob?
God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
KJV

LIGHT from the WORD.

While Jesus was teaching, some members of the Sadducees
came. (They didn't believe in a final resurrection.)
They asked him about the law of Levirate marriage.
( Deuteronomy 25:5-10)

They gave Him an hypothetical scenario.
A man who was married died.
His brother (next oldest) took the wife to bear children
to the first brother, but he died also.
Then, the next 5 also married her, but they all died.
Now, "in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven?"

They did not believe God could come into the world as a man.
They did not believe God would resurrect all men and have a
final judgment.
They did not believe Jesus was the fulfillment of the
prophecies concerning Messiah.

So they didnít believe Godís WORD, nor did they believe
Godís POWER!
Therefore, they were not surrendered to God's
will and way!
And, God's Holy Spirit could not explain to them the real
truths of the Scriptures. ( John 14:26)

In this world today, MANY are like the Sadducees!

In order to know the truths of Scripture we must FIRST:
Surrender to Christ!
THEN we must READ and STUDY the Scriptures!

There are NO MARRIAGES in heaven!
We'll ALL be "children of God" married to Christ!

Love ya!
