Matt. 10:1 And
 when he had called unto him
[a.] his twelve disciples,
 he gave them power
[a.] against unclean spirits,
[11.] to cast them out, and
[b.] [power] to heal
[11.] all manner of sickness and
[12.] all manner of disease.
10:5 These twelve [Apostles]
 Jesus sent forth, and
 commanded them, saying,
[a.] Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and
[b.] [go not] into [any] city of the Samaritans
[11.] enter ye not:
10:6 But [c.] go rather to the lost sheep
[11.] of the house of Israel [go to whomever the Lord shall send you].
Freely receive, freely give
10:7 And [d.] as ye go,
[11.] preach, saying,
[aa.] The kingdom of heaven [the rule of heaven over the earth]
[111.] is at hand.
10:8 [12.] Heal the sick,
[13.] cleanse the lepers,
[14.] raise the dead,
[15.] cast out devils:
[16.] freely ye have received,
[aa.] freely give.
 I send you forth
[a.] as sheep in the midst of wolves:
 be ye therefore
[a.] wise as serpents, and
[b.] harmless as doves.
10:17 But beware of men:
 for they will deliver you up
[a.] to the councils [religious councils: the Sanhedrin in the early church and its counterpart in the latter days], and
 they will scourge you
[a.] in their synagogues [this very clearly is a Jewish matter];
 ye shall be brought before
[a.] governors and
[11.] for my sake,
[12.] for a testimony
[aa.] against them and
[13.] [for a testimony against] the Gentiles.
Witness of the Holy Spirit
 when they deliver you up,
[a.] take no thought
[11.] how or what ye shall speak:
[aa.] for it shall be given you
[111.] in that same hour
[aaa.] what ye shall speak.
10:20 [ab.] For it is not ye that speak,
[111.] but the Spirit of your Father
[aaa.] which speaketh in you.
 the brother shall deliver up
[a.] the brother to death, and
 the father [shall deliver]
[b.] the child [to death]: and
 the children shall rise up against
[a.] [their] parents, and
[11.] cause them to be put to death.
 ye [Jewish Christian carriers of the gospel following the Rapture of the Church] shall be hated of all [men]
[a.] for my name's sake:
 but he that endureth to the end [the second coming of Jesus]
 when they persecute you in this city [of Israel],
[a.] flee ye into another:
[11.] for verily I say unto you,
[aa.] Ye shall not have gone over
[111.] the cities of Israel [Jesus is talking about the cities of Israel being evangelized during the time of Jacob’s trouble: the last 3 ˝ years of The Antichrist Covenant week of years following the mid-week Rapture of the Church between the 5th and 6th seals of Revelation (see also Jer. 30:7; Dan. 9:24-27)],
[b.] till the Son of man be come [until the second coming of Jesus to reign on the earth].
