    MATTHEW 16:21 GET THEE BEHIND ME, SATAN

    16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

    16:22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

    Peter was rebuking Jesus for pronouncing his death and resurrection. It was by Christ's redemption, his complete work of salvation by his cross, that all can be saved freely. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

    Peter could not have been preaching the same gospel of salvation unto eternal life by the cross, as Paul would. Peter could not deny the death of Jesus if he had a full understanding of what it would accomplish. 1 Corinthians 1:18

    16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

    16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

    Jesus was speaking to the Jewish disciples in regard to what was required of them to enter the kingdom on earth; the kingdom promised to Israel in the law and the prophets. Daniel 7:18 Exodus 19:6

    16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

    16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

    16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

    Jesus was speaking of his coming, to establish his millennial kingdom on earth. Jesus was speaking of the reward, which will be given in the kingdom, to those Jews who will follow him; those who will take up their cross, and be willing to lose their life in the tribulation, for their gain in the kingdom.

    16:28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.
