    As I read my Bible this morning I came across this.
    Matthew 21:44 and whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken, but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

    The part of the verse that says and whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken, means who ever falls on Jesus and is broken hearted because of there sinful life style and calls out to Him for remission of their sins .Jesus brakes the Hold the evil one has on their life and comes into them and lives in their heart.

    And the part of the verse that says
    (, but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. )
    Means the wrath of God will fall on all who do not come to Jesus for repentance and want to continue a life of sin and choose to reject God and His forgiveness, God will grind them to powder, There souls will be in torment forever.

    Let us who are called be the ones who are chosen also Lord. We all need the Lord in our lives, and Lord let us not fall from you and hold us tight by your side. Amen

    Hi Lee, context is critical when looking at verses.
    This was written only to the Jews, specifically the High Priests and Pharisees. Christ did not come to the Gentiles, only the Jews. They were the covenant nation until his death.

    Yes, Jesus is the stone they rejected that became the cornerstone of the Church. Yes, the other people were the Gentiles.

    Yes, God's wrath did fall on them.

    Yes, whoever does not repent will indeed be damned for eternity.

    But no, it does not say:
    Broken hearted does not appear in this passage. The context of the passage and verse in specific is the loss of the Kingdom of God, no escape clause.

    Remember, this was aimed at he Pharisees and High Priests specifically.

    Yes, their is application in this for everyone in the world who hardens their heats so they no longer can hear the Holy Spirit speak to them. They are already crushed to powder.

    Look at those who will take the Mark of the Beast in the Trib. At the Second Coming all of them present at Jerusalem will be slaughtered without mercy. Those who escape, or were not there, will be hunted down and eliminated as well.

    There is a line of no return.

    I am so sorry for my misspelling, I thought I had it spelt right, and it still is wrong. I fell like such a fool.
