What did Jesus mean in Saint Matthew 16:9 and 10? What do the twelve baskets and the seven baskets represent? Question for Sunday morning.
193 Let’s see–let’s see, Matthew 16:10. I’m not too sure just now. Let me get where it’s at, Matthew 16:9 and 10–16:9 and 10. Here we are.
Do you not…understand, neither remember the five loaves or the five thousand and how many baskets you took up?
Neither the seven loaves or the four thousand, and how many baskets did you take up?
Now watch. Let’s just take just a little bit before this. And Jesus said unto them, Take heed that you beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Saducees. And they reasoned among themselves, saying, Is it because we have taken no bread.
Jesus…(Now watch!)…Which when Jesus perceived,…(He caught their thoughts, you see.)…he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among you, because you have brought no bread?
Do you not…understand, neither do remember the five loaves and the five thousands, or how many baskets you took up?
194 In other words like this: “If you seen God provide and do a miracle, then can’t He do a miracle again?” See? See, if…In other words, like this: If He saved you from life of sin, can He not heal your body? Don’t you remember when you was a sinner how He lifted up your soul in faith to believe? Can’t He likewise do something great for you again? Can’t He–can’t He do the miracle or anything else for you? The five baskets…Said, “Remember…”
195 Like the…When they crossed over the Red Sea, God opened up the way like that and made the Red Sea open like that, and walked through, he come right on the other side, and as soon as he got without water; they started murmuring. Is that right? As soon as they got without bread they started crying out, “We don’t have no bread.” See? Said, “Didn’t you consider the miracle back there at the Red Sea? Had not you come down, when you all got in a spot by the Red Sea?” “Oh,” they said, “We ought to have died. Here comes the Egyptians right on us now. Here it is; what are we going to do?”
196 Said, “Who smote the earth with plagues down there? Who kept the sun shining in Goshen?” See? We must remember those things, remember God is God! Hallelujah! Any of it, He’s still God. He certainly can do anything.
