BANNERS


PUTTING THE PIECES TOGETHER

14.) "With God, all things are possible"; you may have also heard these words they come from the Bible. But what is the rest of the story.

These words which are in the Bible tell a broader story when the rest of the passage is read.

Matthew 19:26
"But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible."

But there is still even more to this Bible passage;



Matthew 19: 23 - 26;

23Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

24And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

25When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.


These words are also in Luke: chapter 18, and they go yet further;

23And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.

24And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

25For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

26And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?

27And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

28Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.

29And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake,

But wait there is more;

Did you know that it's one states motto? In 1959 a twelve year old boy helped bring this about. Did you know that? So what year was this 12 year old boy born in if he was 12 in 1959? 1947. So I guess that little boy was sent to do that.

So at what point did Jesus say I will die for you so you may be with God? He talked about being rich and being so wouldn't get one into heaven actually it would exclude one from entering the kingdom of God. It would be easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Jesus also said "With God all things are possible". So what does this mean? Exactly what it says, all things are possible with God.

If a Preacher says if it's not in the Bible it doesn't happen he has short changed God and Jesus.
