ENOCH LINK: https://www.ccel.org/c/charles/otpseudepig/enoch/ENOCH_1.HTM - SEE ENOCH 103:8 IT WAS ONE OF THE SOURCES I USED IN TODAY'S LESSON- SHALOM!!!
A LEPER CLEANSED, SEE ALSO (MARK 1:40-45; LUKE 5:12-16)
8:1-4: THE BIBLICAL LAW CONCERNING LEPROSY: Is found in (Lv 13; 14 Dt 24:8)- it teaches us the purification lepers and leprous houses, this was a duty entrusted to most of the early priests: Leprosy was considered a direct punishment for sins, and people who had this disease who considered to be unclean and were not permitted to live in the community or to worship in the synagogues or temples, things haven't changed being we live in 2022 now: Touching the unclean was forbidden (Lv 7:21), yet Yeshua (Jesus) touched was clean, nothing is unclean, see also (Luke 5:14):
A PARALYZED SERVANT HEALED, SEE ALSO (LUKE 7:1-10)
8:5: A CENTURION: (GENTILE)- Was IN charge of roughly 100 men in a Roman Legion: Yeshua (Jesus) is the Savior of all, so He is the God of all and came as a servant to serve His people and teach salvation and coming Kingdom of God!!!
8:7: I WILL COME: Many Greek scholars read this as I question: "Shall I come???": It seems nothing is stopping Yeshua from dealing and helping directly with this Gentile and even nothing stopped Him for entering the man's house, this would have been considered unclean in the eyes of the Jews!!!
8:8-9: THE CENTURION: He expresses some unusual faith when he called out to Yeshua (Jesus), who was considered to be the Lord of the Jews at this time: The Statement made by the Centurion- "Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof",- great faith and a true act of humility!!!
8:10: MENTIONED TWICE IN THE GOSPEL: Saying that Yeshua (Jesus) that He marveled: (1): the unbelief of His hometown in Nazareth (Mark 6:6), and (2): at this belief of this foreigner the centurion!!!
8:11-13: HERE YESHUA (JESUS) NULLIFIES ANY IDEAS OF ETHNIC SUPERIORITY: The rejected sons of the Kingdom of God will be both the Jews who deny Christ as well as those raised in the Church who do not live their faith, but instead quietly accepts the outer darkness and weeping and gnashing are describing the state of the unrighteous dead in Sheol (Hades): see also (ENOCH 103:8): Also common expressions found throughout the Gospel of Matthew 13:42, 50- Matthew 22:13, Matthew 24:51, Matthew 25:30- see also (Luke 13:28):
POWER OVER ALL INFIRMITIES, SEE ALSO (MARK 1:29-34; LUKE 4:38-41)
8:14-17: READ- 1 Corinthians 9:5 (Peter is called Cephas)- Peter was married: see v. 13, and read (Mark 8:22-25) and read (Luke 8:54-55) see also v. 17- reference my video content for more explanation!!!
UNCONDITIONAL LOYALTY, SEE ALSO (LUKE 9:57-62)
8:20: THE SON OF MAN: THE MESSIAH!!! see Daniel's Vision (Daniel 7:13): expressing both His humanity and His divinity!!! See Christ's Human Condition (Matthew 25:31-33) also describing His Divine Authority!!!
8:21-22: Yeshua is not being negative about honoring our parents, but instead teaching us that the things and priorities of Heaven out weigh our priorities here on earth!!! Once again going back to His gift of eternal life is a choice and only a few will make it, if we chose not to pursue Heavenly treasures we are spiritually dead and eternal damnation awaits us!!!
A STORM CALMED, SEE ALSO (MARK 4:35-41; LUKE 8:22-25)
8:23-27: THE LORD'S MASTERY OVER CREATION: Showing us He truly is the Messiah and truly is divine, He commands the seas and the waves (v. 24) and can only be issued by (God the Creator)- (JOB 38:8-11; PSALM 65:5-6; PSALM 106:29- MY PSALMS ARE DIFFERENT SEE MY VIDEO CONTENT)- SEE VIDEO CONTENT FOR FURTHER SUMMARY!!!
THE GERGESENE DEMONIACS, SEE ALSO (MARK 5:1-20; LUKE 8:26-39)
8:28-34: THE DEMONS RECONGNIZING THAT YESHUA (JESUS) IS THE SON OF GOD: Also surprised how their powers are being terminated before the time of the Final Judgement (The appointed time): The demons have lots of malice strength but are unable to do much against the Will of our Lord, so they ask to enter the swine at the command of Christ Himself- the destruction of the herd is showing us the men had been protected by the Lord's care!!! if they weren't protected they would have perished under the demonic influence!!! see video for more commentary of these final verses!!!
READ PEACE WITH THE PSLAMS/ THE LORD WILL SUSTAIN YOU/PSALM 55
MESSAGE ABOUT THE LORD'S LOVE:
1 JOHN 4:7-11:
7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
-The Lord our God is nothing but love, and He describes His relationship to us as our Father, The only begotten Son gave Himself at his own free will sacrificially gave Himself that we might live through Him, so we are to give ourselves to Him and to one another!!! Furthermore He came to us in Love and as a Servant to all, we are to intimate the same type of love, with both humility and mercy!!! Lastly the manifestation of our spirits is extremely important this conditioning is found in prayer and fasting and in His Words!!!
