9-3-2012- LET THE DEAD BURY THE DEAD


MATTHEW 8: 21-22 =

(21) AND ANOTHER OF JESUS DISCIPLES SAID TO HIM, LORD, ALLOW ME TO GO AND BURY MY FATHER.

(22) BUT JESUS SAID TO HIM, FOLLOW ME; AND LET THE DEAD BURY THE DEAD.


 "REMARKS"

IT IS THE WAY THAT JESUS, YAH'SHUA, REPLIES TO ONE OF HIS DISCIPLES, THAT GETS OUR ATTENTION.

WHAT DOES JESUS, YAH'SHUA, MEAN WHEN HE SAID, FOLLOW ME AND LET THE DEAD BURY THE DEAD.

FIRST OF ALL, JESUS, YAH'SHUA, DEMANDS MORE LOVE FOR HIM, THAN YOUR OWN FAMILY MEMBERS. 

SECONDLY, IN THE TIME OF JESUS, YAH'SHUA, NO ONE LIVING, PAST, PRESENT, OR SOON AFTER, TILL JESUS, YAH'SHUA'S, GLORIFICATION, ALL PEOPLE WERE SPIRITUALLY DEAD.

THE INFERENCE BY JESUS, YAH'SHUA, TO HIS DISCIPLE, WAS TO IMPLY THAT THE SPIRITUALLY DEAD, SHOULD BURY THE PHYSICALLY DEAD. NO NEED TO BE CONCERNED WITH THOSE SPIRITUALLY DEAD, OR THE PHYSICALLY DEAD, FOR JESUS, YAH'SHUA, KNEW THAT WHEN HE WAS BURIED, HE WOULD GO WHERE THOSE WHO WERE DEAD PHYSICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY, WOULD HEAR THE GOSPEL OF GOD, YAH'WEH, PREACHED TO THEM, AS IT IS TO US TODAY.

1 PETER 3: 18-19 =

(18) FOR CHRIST ALSO HAS ONCE SUFFERED FOR SINS, THE JUST FOR THE UNJUST, THAT HE MIGHT BRING US TO GOD, BEING PUT TO DEATH IN THE FLESH, BUT MADE ALIVE BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.

(19) BY WHICH HE, (JESUS), WENT AND PREACHED TO THE SPIRITS IN PRISON; 

 HE KNEW THERE WAS NO IMMEDIATE NEED TO BE CONCERNED WITH THEM, UNTIL AFTER HIS RESURRECTION AND GLORIFICATION, WHERE HE COULD INFUSE THEM WITH NEW LIFE,  BY THE INDWELLING OF GODS, YAH'WEHS, HOLY SPIRIT, ONCE THEY RECEIVED JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER, THERE IS NO REAL LIFE, UNTIL YOU ARE BORN AGAIN INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD, YAH'WEH.
