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 to ask a question.
They didn't believe in a final RESURRECTION.
Therefore, they didn't believe in a final JUDGMENT!

They asked him about the law of Levirate marriage.
( Deuteronomy 25:5-10)
And they used an hypothetical scenario.
A man who was married died.
His brother (next oldest) took the wife to bear children to the
first, but he died.
Then, the next 5 also married her, but they all died.

Now, "in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the
seven?"
(Matt 22:28)


Notice Jesus' FIRST statement:
"Ye do ERR, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God!"

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 IN the Word!
Therefore, they were not surrendered to God's
will and God's way!
This resulted in the fact that God's Holy Spirit could not explain
to them the real truths of the Scriptures. (See John 14:26)

The LESSON today is this: the world is FULL of those who
are like the Sadducees!

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

Surrender to Christ as LORD is the ONLY way one can
have comprehension of God's WORD!

Love ya!
