We thank God for the unadulterated Word Of God!  As we expound on the daily Scriptures, we will attempt to analyze each Verse, so that we can get a full (better) understanding of what God is saying to us.  In these studies, we will not have any heated debates or arguments.  We all have different opinions, so let us respect what one another has to say because even though my opinion may differ from yours, each Scripture has various meanings, but the same concept or idea, which may mean the same thing, so our opinions doesn't necessarily mean that any of them are wrong; I think that we should be optimistic in knowing that whatever we have to say could very well be the truth, so I would love for each of you to voice what's in your minds and your hearts with the utmost respect to God the Father & our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit... and also to each other.  So let us share our Knowledge and enlighten each other as we walk through God's Word...Let us make this special time Spiritual, enjoyable and a fun exploration.  Thank you all so much and I pray that you enjoy this time with God and be Blessed in the Word, daily!  Love & Peace, ~EarthAngel~

The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham: 

There are four gospels with a different emphasis in each. 

   Matthew wrote to the Jews,
   Mark to the Romans,
   Luke to the Gentiles, and
   John to everyone.

There are extensive quotations from the Old Testament in Matthew, more than in any other gospel.

Matthew began his book with a presentation of the ancestry of Jesus Christ.  (1:1-17) because of its strategic argument for the Messiah. Matthew presented the genealogy of Joseph, and Luke presented the genealogy of Mary.  (Lu 3) Thus, we have both a legal line and the blood line of Jesus.  Matthew proved that Jesus had the legal right to the throne of David. He had the the judicial and prophetic right to the throne. (2 Sa 7:8-18; Ps 89:20-37)

Philippians 3:18 
 "For many walk of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ."

Verses 18 and 19 discuss the enemies of the cross. The chapter closes like it began, "Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation." (3:2) To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

For many walk of whom I have told you often

In verse 17 Paul encouraged the Philippians to mark out those who are mature. Mature believers live on earth as if they were already in heaven. (v.20) Now by graphic contrast he sets forth the flip side–those who detract from growth. The negative crowd we run with, influences our values.

This is a major problem for teenagers who are in the "identity crisis." They gain their identity from what others in their group think about them. Teens are vulnerable to the crowd. When they are by themselves they seem to be fine. When they run with the crowd that is another story. They are easily led. Group pressure sweeps them along in values they would not otherwise hold. If they get into the right crowd where they can see living, flesh and blood, examples of those who walk with the Lord, the impact will be for good.

Paul reminded the Philippians many times of those who would detract from their lives. He told them "often." Paul employed "redundancy" as a valuable device. Leadership takes responsibility to constantly warn their followers of danger.

PRINCIPLE: Good leadership identifies negative influences and structures countervailing principles into the people they lead.

APPLICATION: As a leader in your home, do you forewarn your family about negative influences? Peer pressure cannot transcend fifteen years of values inculcated into the life. If our teens are secure enough in themselves that they can stand against the crowd, they have reached a maturity beyond most. If we are to build teens who are independent of social pressure, we need to communicate biblical convictions at a young age. We need many young men and women who, like Daniel, dare to stand alone.

Our Prayer: Psalm 27


The LORD is my light and my salvation— 
whom shall I fear? 
The LORD is the stronghold of my life— 
of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me 
to devour[a] me, 
it is my enemies and my foes 
who will stumble and fall. 
Though an army besiege me, 
my heart will not fear; 
though war break out against me, 
even then I will be confident.

One thing I ask from the LORD, 
this only do I seek: 
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD 
all the days of my life, 
to gaze on the beauty of the LORD 
and to seek him in his temple. 
For in the day of trouble 
he will keep me safe in his dwelling; 
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent 
and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted 
above the enemies who surround me; 
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; 
I will sing and make music to the LORD.

Hear my voice when I call, LORD; 
be merciful to me and answer me. 
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” 
Your face, LORD, I will seek. 
Do not hide your face from me, 
do not turn your servant away in anger; 
you have been my helper. 
Do not reject me or forsake me, 
God my Savior 
Though my father and mother forsake me, 
the LORD will receive me. 
Teach me your way, LORD; 
lead me in a straight path 
because of my oppressors. 
Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, 
for false witnesses rise up against me, 
spouting malicious accusations.

I remain confident of this: 
I will see the goodness of the LORD 
in the land of the living. 
Wait for the LORD; 
be strong and take heart 
and wait for the LORD.
