Matthew 10:14 “And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart our of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet”.
Define DUST: literally it means powdery, spiritually it means your thoughts/parables
Define HOUSE/CITY:literally it means dwelling places, spiritually it means you yourself, us
The scripture is to give wisdom, knowledge and understanding, to encourage, to strengthen and help us in doing our works for God; expecting rejections, hatred. The truth will force us to re-evaluate our lives and to except our responsibilities to God. Jesus was teaching his believers (apostles) that the truth he was teaching was the power (spirit) of God. The power (spirit) was to cast out the wicked ways of idol gods, heal spiritually and curst the wicked those who are enemies of God. The scripture says, and whosoever shall not receive you (truth) nor hear your words (the teachings that Jesus taught, commandments to live by) when you depart out of that house or city (speaking of them that has rejected the truth) shake off the dust of your feet (don’t let their negative and wicked spirit journey with you), leaving their evil wickedness with them.
May God bless you always in continuous wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
Minister Bobbie Parks-Gaines
