Matthew 21b

Join Beth Tikkun as we continue our study in Matthew’s gospel. In this study we compare Yeshua’s statements about faith moving mountains. He says this twice, once in chapter 17 and again here in chapter 21. As we compare these two contexts and amazing menorah pattern reveals itself that invites a closer look. We also are introduced to Yeshua’s set of three parables about future judgment.

    Grant,
    I hope you can give me some direction in this matter. I attend a small group of Sabbath keepers. There is someone who uses the statement “I plead the blood of Jesus over this matter”. I am personally not familiar with this. I wonder if there is something in Scripture related to this? I haven’t said anything in regards to this and I really am not sure if this is not Scriptural and if I should remain silent.
    I know to pray about this , but I feel I need I could use wise counsel concerning this.

    Thank-you,
    Peg

    Peggy, I think your friend is simply using a phrase that he/she has picked up in church or a Bible study. There is absolutely no place in Scripture where such a phrase is used. I’m sure your friend means well, but such statements usually find their source in ministries that emphasize power and how to get it. They try to “take authority” and do so “in Jesus’ name” in the hopes that somehow they can get God to show up and make things happen. I am not saying that this is the case with this person, but it has been my experience with various groups and individuals. There are many churches and Christian groups that actually employ occult practices without realizing it since these practices are dressed up in Bible verses and sprinkled with Jesus’ name. But the bottomline is that if a person is trying to use God and scripture to acquire power, then it is an occult practice no matter how much “Jesus sauce” is poured on top. Again, I don’t know your friend and if this is what they are doing, but it smacks of such. Please do not use these remarks to judge or condemn him/her! They are given only to help you use discernment and caution when you encounter such things. Shalom! Grant
