Jesus response to a very dumb question:
Who asked this very dumb question?
The Sect of the Sadducees.
What was their core beliefs?
The Dumb Question: Matthew 22:23-28
"The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him, Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother: Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh. And last of all the woman died also. Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her."
So, here is this stupid hypothetical question put forward to Jesus, trying to trip him up in his words so that they might have something for them to accuse him of. However like all dumb question like, what about the guy in Africa in the middle of nowhere? There have been more missionaries sent to Africa throughout history than any other country in the world...
Well any way, the purpose of this post is to show you the simple truth, so that you are not fooled or bamboozled by phony Christians trying to suck you into their money making S club 7 type memberships.
So Who's Wife will she be in the resurrection? bearing in mind the Sadducee's don't even believe in the resurrection!
The Absolute truth given by Jesus: Matthew 22:29-32
"Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living."
The first thing Jesus tells them is that they are in error, they are in error because they do not know the scriptures! How many times must we keep telling new born babes in Christianity to read their bibles! Many people are in error because they do not know their bibles and what the word of God says!!!!
When you lack any knowledge of the scriptures how then can you even begin to understand or know the power of God?
Jesus says, for in the resurrection we don't marry or are even given in marriage!
For we will be like the angels of God in heaven.
Pretty simple huh? no mentions of sealing each other together for eternity, no mentions of being married forever. Jesus SAID THERE WILL BE NO MARRIAGE!!!
As touching the resurrection, Jesus is basically saying, well, why don't you believe in the resurrection? For God said, I AM the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. For God is not the God of the dead, but of the living, see, he didn't say WAS, he said AM, as in present tense, that means Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are alive still, when Jesus made reference that God is God of the Living, Jesus is referring to the fact that they are living, and we know from scripture that after death, a saved person goes directly to heaven, whilst an unsaved person goes to hell.
There you have it, easy peezy, no scripture twisting, no adding or removing from God's word, just good ol' plain truth from the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
I thank the Lord for giving us his clear word, all praise and glory to the Father in heaven, in Jesus name.
