MATTHEW 15:1-20

LESSON 2

 

The Jew’s religious leaders had just questioned why Jesus’ disciples “sinned” (transgressed) against the tradition of ceremonial handwashing before eating. Instead of responding to their accusation, Jesus turned it into an accusation against their hypocrisy.

 

He said to them in verses 3-6, “Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?”  He cited the fifth of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:12) which says, “Honor thy father and thy mother” and Exodus 21:17 that says, “and he that curseth (dishonors) his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.”

 

The Pharisees were accusing Jesus and his band of breaking the tradition made by man, not by God. Jesus accused them of breaking the commandment given by God, not from man. That was a far more serious charge that proved their hypocrisy.

 

The Pharisee’s tradition (likely from the Talmud) as said in verses 5-6, “Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother ‘It is a gift, by whatsoever their mightest be profited by me’ and honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free.” This KJV rendering does not clarify the practice very well. The NASB gives it more clearly, and parallels the Amplified Version which says, “If anyone says to his father or mother ‘whatever (money or resource that) I have that would help you is (already dedicated and) given to God,’ he is not to honor his father or his mother (by helping them with their need.) so by this you have invalidated the word of God for the sake of your tradition.”

 

KJV verse 6 adds “he shall be free” despite his disobedience to God’s word. Free from what? Free from the death sentence mandated in Exodus 21:17. There was no government assistance for the elderly who are in need like we have today. Their adult children were obligated to see that their elderly parents’ basic needs were met.

 

The religious Scribes, Pharisees, and Sadducees had created a tradition which relieved them of this biblical responsibility to honor their parents with basic sustenance. Their tradition exonerated them making them blameless. Their excuse was everything they had was already given to God (the synagogue, church, or in alms), therefore we have nothing left with which to help you. You are on your own. Good luck.

 

Jesus admonishes them that their manmade (Talmud) tradition in effect cancels out God’s commandments. He called them in verse 7 hypocrites. Today, many

 churches have traditions not found in the Bible. Some are even contrary to the Bible. Some of those traditions arose in the last couple hundred years and some of the most egregious ones go back to the religious codification of Roman Catholic practices of the 300’s A.D. Man’s ideas should never supersede what God’s written word says.

TAKE THE LEAD

 

The old saying that says, there are those that make things happen, then there are those that watch things happen, and then there are those that wondered what happened. We often laugh at this old saying, but there is a lot of truth in it. I truly believe that anyone that is truly called to be a leader has been born to be a leader. Everything in their lives that they have done will culminate into leadership.

 

That being said, there are those that aren’t called to be leaders also. They watch what is going on, sometimes from a distance, but they support those that have been called to lead. They are a vital part of a leader’s life, because to fulfill their call as leaders they need the undergird of support that only those that watch things happen can do. Those that watch have a keen sense of loyalty. They keep an eye on the camp to make sure that the enemy isn’t coming through the door. They observe and support. That is what their life’s training has prepared them for. It is a wonderful asset to have these kinds of people around. They don’t try to take control of the leader; they watch and follow.

 

Then there are those that no matter what is going on they just don’t see it. There could be a rocket go off and these people would not notice it. They are out of tune with the leader. They are out of tune with the watchers, and out of tune with God. They might think they are called to be a leader or a watcher, but they aren’t. They have lost focus of life for various reasons. They can stir up trouble if they aren’t kept at a distance.

 

If you are called to be a leader, whether man or woman then step into the role that God has prepared you for. Don’t let anything deter it. Be confident that God has equipped you and will be with you in this role. Take the lead knowing God is trusting you to lead. You can do this!

PROPHETIC EXHORTATION


America as a whole as well as some of our churches and our homes are a people who have quickly become...A nation of folks who wants their egos stroked and their sins overlooked. Look around you and you’ll see that we are most definitely at a very crucial time. Therefore, we best get ready to acknowledge and to prepare (well to the best of our ability to prepare for such things) to have our world rocked...For whether or not we want to admit it...More is coming folks. It is past time to wake up...to fast, pray and REPENT from the Whitehouse to the Church house, to Congress, to the Supreme Court, to the local governments, to the schoolhouse, to our houses and to everything in between. It’s a fact, we must all know just how critical the hour really is that we're now facing; And yes it is right here in our once great land of America and in the nations of the world. Indeed it’s time for men and women of God to forget about their petty differences; And cry out to God and weep between the porch and the altar for the awesome Presence, Power and Holiness of God to return to our lives, our homes, our churches and to our nation. God bless America and God bless each of you.
