The Gospel of Matthew - Program 13

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

The Bible talks about the Lord's Day, and people like to say that was Sunday. But the Lord's Day spoken of in Revelation is the time when God will intervene in human affairs and SHAKE the nations and SHAKE every mountain and every island out of its…

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

Many scholars have not been sure what this means. Was John, cut off in prison, unsure about Jesus, or was he in fact doing this primarily for the good of His disciples? I think it is probably the latter; though it might have been both, in part. The…

The Gospel of Matthew - Program 11

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

"Brought before governors and kings"—not some nice courtesy call or tea party, but brought before them. In most cases, we find that the Apostles were brought before the authorities in chains. They were prisoners, as the Apostle Paul was when he was…

The Gospel of Matthew - Program 10

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

Back then, people knew how to fast. People today don't talk much about fasting. It is not a very popular subject in our affluent society. When people these days do fast, they often have a "water fast" or a "juice fast." Back then, a religious fast…

The Gospel of Matthew - Program 09

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." We need to realize this basic principle. He does not change. He is always willing to heal. He may not heal as much today as He did back then, because we are not living in an age of faith.…

The Gospel of Matthew - Program 08

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

Christ goes on to explain that whatever you want men to do to you, you should do also to them. God is very good to us, and we also must be very good to one another. You want to learn to love your neighbor as yourself. This is called the "golden rule…

The Gospel of Matthew - Program 07

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

A number of translations translate this as "condemn not, that you be not condemned" because Jesus is not just talking using the word "judge" to indicate "discerning." God tells us, all the way through the Bible, to be very discerning.

The Gospel of Matthew - Program 06

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

Most people don't know God. Frankly, they are not even acquainted with God, but I hope that many of you are, or will be. You can come to know God if you truly walk with Him, do what He says and obey Him-that's the key. Will you do what God says? Or…

The Gospel of Matthew - Program 05

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

Notice that He did not say "if" you pray. He assumed that Christians would be praying. And we should be praying and we have to be praying—or we won't make it into God's Kingdom. You need to understand that, but many do not understand. You should be…

The Gospel of Matthew - Program 04

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

Jesus went on, saying: "Let your light so shine". Christians are to be lights; we are to live the right way. Jesus said "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets". The disciples who were listening to Him were not under any…

The Gospel of Matthew - Program 03

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

So we are not to just "talk the talk." as they say. We are to "walk the walk." We are to live by every Word of God. We are to let Christ's character shine out from us in the way we treat one another, and in the way we worship, serve and obey God and…

The Gospel of Matthew - Program 02

Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

Most people concentrate on the person of Christ and not on what He said. But His Word is what counts, as we will see as we go through His own message. Don't just believe in what Jesus Christ did, believe in what He taught. Don't just think on His…
