Matthew 11:1 And it came to pass, when Emmanuel had made an end of commanding.('instructing' and 'setting in order').his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.

Matthew 11:2 Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,

Matthew 11:3,4 And said unto him, Are you he that should come, or do we look for another? Emmanuel answered and said unto them, Go and show John again those things which you do hear and see. 

Matthew 11:5 The blind receive their sight and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 

Matthew 11:6,7 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me. And as they departed, Emmanuel began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went you out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

Matthew 11:8,9 But what went you out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses. But what went you out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you and more than a prophet.

Matthew 11:10 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Matthew 11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there has not risen a greater than John the Baptist. Notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he..(?)

Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force.

Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven.(what is the "kingdom of heaven" also called the "kingdom of God"?).suffers violence.(original for 'suffers violence' is 'use force', that is, the kingdom is gotten by those eager for it; Paul's example).and the violent.(original for 'violent' is 'those hot for life').take it by force.(original for 'force' is 'are eager'; they wholeheartedly go after {Psalms 119:10,34,58} it by doing what's necessary)(in the original Greek " .....the kingdom of heaven is gotten by those eager.{hot}.for God.").."You are the fighter in eternal God's blessing for eternal life and eternal faith."....Grigori Grabovoi). In other words, when in alignment with the Creator, you are in His blessing of eternal life and have His faith. (?)

Matthew 11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

Matthew 11:14 And if you will receive it, this is Elias.(Malachi 3:1; Elias is the Greek way of spelling for the Hebrew word Elijah:.Malachi 4:5; Matthew 3:3. This New Testament 'Elijah' was John the baptist, who came in the spirit and power of ancient Elijah of the Old Testament:.Luke 1:17), which was for to come.

"If you will receive it" was said because some of those hearing these words about Elias/Elijah expected him to show up in person:.Barnes Notes:."They expected that Elijah would appear in person...This expectation was the reason why he used the words, 'if you will receive it', implying that the affirmation that John the Baptist was the promised Elijah was a doctrine contrary to their expectation."

Matthew 11:15 He that has ears to hear, let him hear..(*)

Matthew 11:18 For John came neither eating nor drinking and they say, He has a devil.

Matthew 11:19 The Son of man came eating and drinking and they say Behold a man gluttonous and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

Matthew 11:19 The Son of man came eating and drinking and they say Behold a man gluttonous and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified.(or 'declared').of.(or as the original has it, 'of separation' and 'of origin').her children..(American Standard Version.has last line as "And wisdom is justified by her children.".(that is, a wise person will have works that show wisdom)

Matthew 11:20 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented.(Matthew 21:32).not. 

Matthew 11:21 Woe unto you, Chorazin! woe unto you, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

The less concerned a people are in an area, the more stubborn the populace becomes toward change to good.

Matthew 11:22 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment.(Revelation 20:12), than for you.(verse 21 just above)

Matthew 11:23,24 And you, Capernaum, which are exalted unto heaven, shall be brought down to hell. For if the mighty works, which have been done in you, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you.

Matthew 11:23,24 And you, Capernaum, which are exalted unto heaven, shall be brought down to hell. For if the mighty works, which have been done in you, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you..(why? because the ancient cities of Sodom, Tyre and Sidon didn't have the same exposure to the instruction and works of the Creator as did Chorazin, Bethsaida and Capernaum {verse 21, above}:.Luke 12:47,48)

Matthew 11:25 At that time Emmanuel answered and said, I thank you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hid these things from the wise and prudent and has revealed them unto babes.

Matthew 11:26 Even so Father, for so it seemed good in your sight.

Matthew 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father and no man knows the Son but the Father, neither knows any man the Father save the Son and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Matthew 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father and no man knows the Son but the Father, neither knows any man the Father save.(means 'except').the Son.(the 'Son' is the soul) and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him..(and that's to those who seek spiritual overstanding)

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me all you that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you and.learn of me.(hook up with me).for I am meek and lowly in heart and you shall find rest unto your souls.

Matthew 11:30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Matthew 11:30 For my yoke.(original here for word 'yoke' is 'pair of balances', 'scales', that is, learn from how I live a life in balance, a life of wholeness, from which we get 'holiness').is easy.(Romans 8:28).and my burden is light..(why? because the Creator set up things to work for us, not against us; things become easier the more one learns and lives the path of love which is the spiritual path, as love is a spiritual quality and is the path of high consciousness living where one finally sees that the world is not pushing against him and he must push back, but rather, is flowing through him and one sees that all fulfilment comes from within; go with the flow)

Matthew 12:1 At that time Emmanuel went on the sabbath day through the corn and his disciples were hungry and began to pluck the ears of corn and to eat.

Matthew 12:2 But when the Pharisees saw it they said unto him Behold.(notice, take note, pay attention).your disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day.

Matthew 12:3 But he said unto them Have you not read what David did.(1Samuel 21:3-6).when he was hungry and they that were with him;

Matthew 12:4 How he entered into the house of God and did eat the shewbread.(?), which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?.(?)

Matthew 12:5 Or have you not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath and are blameless?

Matthew 12:6 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.

Matthew 12:7 But if you had known what this means, I will have mercy and not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the guiltless.

Matthew 12:8 For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

Be convinced yourself about things and don't allow anyone to influence you beyond where you may be in your heart at any particular time in your life.

Matthew 12:9 And when he was departed thence he went into their synagogue.

Matthew 12:10 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.

Matthew 12:11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it and lift it out?

Matthew 12:12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

Emmanuel showing that love, mercy and concern is well above literal.interpretations of law)

Matthew 12:13 Then said he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth and it was restored whole, like as the other.

Matthew 12:14 Then the Pharisees went out and held a council.(a conspiracy).against him how they might destroy him..(the corrupt ordinary low consciousness of mankind is shown by how most of the Pharisees were in their thinking)

Matthew 12:15,16 But when Emmanuel knew it he withdrew himself from thence and great multitudes followed him and he healed them all; And charged them that they should not make him known,

Matthew 12:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,

Matthew 12:18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased. I will put my spirit upon him and he shall show judgment to the Gentiles..(prophesied 700 years before in Isaiah:.Isaiah 42:1)

Matthew 12:19 He shall not strive, nor cry, neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets..(prophesied 700 years before in Isaiah:.Isaiah 42:2)

Matthew 12:20.A bruised reed shall he not break.(prophesied from Isaiah 42:3).and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.

Matthew 12:22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil.(*), blind and dumb and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.

Matthew 12:23 And all the people were amazed and said, Is not this the son of David?

Matthew 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow does not cast out devils but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

Matthew 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow does not cast out devils but by Beelzebub.(comprised from Bible Dictionaries: Beelzebub is the New Testament Greek spelling of the same word in the Old Testament 'Baalzebub', a name given to Satan and is found as such only in the New Testament, meaning 'the prince of the devils', a name derived from Baal-zebub {2Kings 1:2,3,16}, an idol deity among the Ekronites, signifying 'lord of flies', whose office was to protect his worshippers from the torment of the gnats and flies with which that region was infested. The ruling Jews in the time of Emmanuel on Earth seem to have applied this appellation to Satan, as being the author of all the pollutions and abominations of idol-worship).the prince of the devils.

Matthew 12:25 And Emmanuel knew their thoughts and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.

Matthew 12:26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself. How shall then his kingdom.(the devil's kingdom is a kingdom of evil).stand?.(Mark 3:26; Luke 11:17,18)

Matthew 12:27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.

Matthew 12:28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

Matthew 12:28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit.(spirit of the Creator is the presence of the Creator).of God then the kingdom of God is come unto you..(good things of love and helping others are what the kingdom of the Creator is all about:.Acts 10:38).(*)

Matthew 12:29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

Matthew 12:30 He that is not with me is against me and he that gathers not with me scatters abroad.

Matthew 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men, but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men..(?)

Matthew 12:32 And whosoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him. But whosoever speaks against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

Matthew 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can you.(they can, because they are hypocritically minded), being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks..(*)

Matthew 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things. And an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things..(*)

Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.(and just what really is the 'day of judgment'?)..(so, all words, probably all our actions too, are stored in a database {often called 'the Akashic record'} in the invisible {invisible to us that is}, in the world of different frequencies and here Creator-God is aware, of course, to all information which includes a record of each of us, often called in the Bible the book of life; the universal laws work as they were designed to; the Creator doesn't play games with your head; watch your words, they are the intents of your heart; they will judge you, how?; the day of judgment is when your deeds come back to affect you; the account being, thoughts of the category of bad, not handled by the blood of Christ will require an explanation; in other words, one can't think whatever he wants, when he wants and expect it to be of none effect, as all thoughts affect the collective consciousness for good or evil, contributing to life, or the way of death and therefor marked for explanation and correction, correction being growth spiritually)

Matthew 12:37 For by your words you are justified and by your words you condem yourself.

Matthew 12:37 For by your words.(Proverbs 25:8).you are justified and by your words you condemn yourself.(original for 'condemned' is 'down from', 'according to', that is, according to what? What would be righteous and what would be evil and condemn you? Thoughts become words in the mind according to intents of the heart}, that is, the words, concepts, ideas that you accept for you as being true, you will receive of in life and they are all recorded, but evil ones are wiped away once one changes from evil ways; this is called repentance in the Bible, which simply means 'change').

Matthew 12:38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from you.

Matthew 12:39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas.

Matthew 12:39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign.(there were many signs already noticed by the scribes and Pharisees and everyone else {John 11:45-51; 7:31,32; 21:25}, but these particular scribes and Pharisees were out to get Him, only using what they knew to be true in order to trap Him {Mark 12:14}, so here the emphasis is instead on the type of persons these particular {John 3:2} scribes and Pharisees were).and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas.(Jonah).

Matthew 12:40 For as Jonas.(Jonah 1:1-3).was three days and three nights in the whale's belly, so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth..(speaking of Emmanuel's death and resurrection)

Comprised with.Barnes Notes: It will be seen, in the account of the resurrection of Christ (Matthew 28:1,5,6), that he was in the grave two nights and one day. The Jews back then reckoned any part of a day as one day. The Jews also used the word heart to denote the interior of a thing or to speak of being in a thing. It means here in this verse to be in the grave or sepulchre.

Matthew 12:42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation and shall condemn it. For she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon and behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

Matthew 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest and finding none.

Matthew 12:44 Then he says, I will return into my house from whence I came out and when he is come he finds it empty swept and garnished.

Matthew 12:45 Then goes he and takes with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself and they enter in and dwell there and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

Note that it's the wicked who are subject to increasing influence by the dark side; important not to be wicked; wickedness is a result of a person allowing himself to live life from the low consciousness ego level which is susceptible to the basically negative mass mind influence.

Matthew 12:46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

Matthew 12:47-49 Then one said unto him, Behold, your mother and your brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother and who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

Matthew 12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother and sister and mother.

Comprised with.International Standard Bible Encyclopedia:.Emmanuel said this to His disciples indicating that no ties of the flesh should interfere with the reasons He came to Earth.
