Andrew Dettman's comment on 3/24/2015, 6:10am...

A personal view based on my personal experiences. One Love knowing Itself in two places of experience is mankind s lot. Orientation is simply a navigation. Because Love is all there actually is in the whole of existence, mankind in it s dual gender manifestation can easily experience overwhelming feelings of disorientation. Adultery was punished by death in past culture as was other interpersonal disorientation as people lost their ability to withstand inner urge from becoming outer actions. Christ stopped such killing by asking who it was exactly that was without error themselves, as only they could execute the then law. He then said to the folks that had had their death sentence arrested that they should go and try not to miss the point of their life again, or not to sin again as it is sometimes translated. He did not take the easier softer way and change the then law to try to make disorientation into orientation, he simply suggested that One Love understands the difficulty of the mortal template, a template that needs insulation around the vehicular inner cabling to prevent meltdown, and that any mortal disorientation always has a spiritual insulation remedy whatever the mental and physical interface may appear to insist. So today, violent physical reaction to perceptions of the behaviour of others, when because of One Love there is no actual other, is never to be recommended and thanks eventually to the message of Christ, modern law correctly forbids all forms of antisocial physical violence in Great Britain, plus that which was illegal is no longer illegal as regards personal relationships and lifestyle choices. That does mean that disorientation can ever pretend to be anything other than itself in mortal duality. However, The Christ Jesus did say that hypocrisy is the worst case scenario of all. Disorientation can lose faith in One Love s physical design, and forget that Christ did not advocate changing the basis of the template s physical law, rather He changed the way it was to be prosecuted, from death into onward wrestling with an ever open portal for Love s arbitration as both a humanising source code and a destination that can forgive anything and personally orientate anyone from being any kind of dualistic Man into being singularly Human. In my weakness, is my strength . Or, in my yin is my yang, to compare another culture.

J A Shirley's comment about verse 32 on 3/23/2015, 9:38am...

First, fornication, as used in the scripture in both old and new Testaments, references any and all type of sexual immortality and impurity as well as having spiritual implications: adultery also has a spiritual implication but throughout the word of God refers to violation of the matrimonial bond instituted by God himself. According to the Word of God there is no acceptable reason for divorce which God also called "putting away ", the two are the same . Neither this passage nor Paul 's writings, concerning the unbeliever, authorizes or justifies divorce nor does any passage justify marrying another after divorcing. The passage being discussed is actually relieving the some guilt on the part of the injured spouse. That is to say, If one puts away their spouse because their spouse is already a fornicator, the putting away does not make the spouse what they already are. This passage does clearly state that if the one put away marries another that is continual adultery. Likewise, if the one who did the putting away marries another that also is continual adultery. The eth suffix gives the word a present future tense, meaning that so long as the circumstances stay the same the resultant action of those circumstances stays the same. And, I remind you that all adulterers shall have their place in hell.

We must obey of what God has commanded us in order for us to enter into the kingdome of Heaven. We must be Born Again in Spirit and listen to the word of God and obey his words until rapture. We will recieved a life in abundance and repent for our sins that we have committed. God will give us the power not to sin again. Thanks to Lord Jesus Christ for his precious blood that shed for us from his blood we are now live because of his forgiveness. Give thanks to Jesus and praised him everyday for his precious blood. He deserves to be worship and praised . Jesus loves all of us

Laurea's comment on 3/14/2015, 4:43am...

There is so much to absorb within Matthew 5. I use to think that suffering as a Christian had to do with sharing the Word or when others seen you take a stand for your faith in Christ. However, I realize that persecution, being lied about, shunned can come from just being who you are everyday. My family has persecuted me off and on for years and it has deeply hurt but tonight as I read again what Christ was saying in reference to suffering I understood that our suffering can not compare to what He suffered for me, the world, for just one little lost lamb who is lonely, soiled and stained! Suffering hurts especially when it 's not justifiable but the Word says that our suffering is what makes us strong and teaches us how to depend on His opinion only and right about now? I really need that assurance.

God\'s Woman\'s-'s comment about verse 44 on 3/10/2015, 10:28pm...

Hi Judy, if it will help, know that you are not alone. They that live Godly shall suffer persecution. I was persecuted and threatened by a stalker. Do you really think it 's easy to love him? "Love your enemies " rolls off of the tongue very smoothly, but it takes the power of the Holy Ghost and work. Take comfort though in knowing that your brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus are going through, but serving God will pay in GREAT dividends. Your name is written in the Lamb 's book of life, and satan does not like it. It 's not the people that come against you. It 's the demons in them.Look up for your redemption draws near, and try to avoid people who try to harm you. Jesus did. Who are we more than he?

 


Caleb Sunday Awojobi's comment about verse 9 on 3/09/2015, 2:08pm...

Peace in the spirit as i define from Economics ' perspective is a state of EQUILIBRIUM. Jesus is the prince of peace, He 's given the peace to ALL those who receives Him Jn. 1:12, because we 're become a joint-heir with Him unto all things. He said that so far we remain in Him, He dwells in us Jn. 15:5, and this is ever sure He 's the word that proceedeth out of God Himself......so, if Christ dwells in God, we dwell in Christ. We 're God 's children as Peace makers because we 're of Christ!

Need encouragement and tips for rejoicing when Christians and non Christians despitefully use in return for Christ righteousness

 


Insight 777's comment on 2/13/2015, 4:59pm...

Verse 32, a marriage is a spiritual contract between a man and a woman and God. This is an oath, a solemn pledge to stay together until death. If the marriage is broken then the woman becomes the victim of adultery. The broken pledge to God is a form of adultery that needs to be acknowledged aside from the separation between partners. Forgiveness needs to be asked of God for failing to live up to the promised union of partners to have God 's blessings. The divorce is considered a sin but a sin that can be forgiven. God loves you. The lesson of beginning again in a new marriage after the divorce requires asking Gods forgiveness again and reinforcing your determination to fulfill the loving role of wife to a new husband, renewing faith in marriage and affirmation of God 's Divine Mind. One must overcome the divorce and rest in the realization of the Power and Grace of Jesus by living a happy Christian life.

 


Insight 777's comment on 2/13/2015, 3:44pm...

Verse 3, Blessed are the poor in spirit may affirm that people that are newly opened to the goodness of Jesus and want to follow him have the future of God 's blessings such as health, happiness, love, peace and prosperity. These are people that want to learn the scriptures so that they can understand and express their faith in God. Those that are poor in spirit can lift their vision and see that following Jesus willingly allows God 's love to flow through them in all situations. Their spirit will attain richness by being receptive to the guidance of God 's loving care.

 


Lyle's comment about verse 17 on 2/13/2015, 10:40am...

Mat. 5:17 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law or the Prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. " Read verse 17 in context. I suggest that the term, "but to fulfill " means: 'to fill the law fuller. ' Verse 19, Does a person really want to teach that the law including the ten commandments see Deut. 5, and 6:1 in context can be ignored and subsequently broken? Doesn 't Mat. 5:27 fill up the law of adultery fuller? Mat. 5:33 fills out the Law about swearing, right? Mat. 5:38 enhances the Law "an eye for an eye, " doesn 't it? And Jesus ' Yahshua 's testimony goes on and on filling up The Law more fully. Take the fifth Commandment, for example just because Jesus obeyed and honored his parents fully, and earned the prolongation of "his days, " doesn 't mean we can disobey and dishonor our parents without penalty.

It is an uplifting vers for those who had backslided bt still willing tu stsnd up spiritualy and took where they have left but the flesh is kind of overpowering them. This vers will give them hope trust and believe and to be firm

 


Lilian's comment on 1/25/2015, 11:54pm...

God is so merciful and loving Father. He is faithful to his promises that goodness and mercy will always follow us. for God so love the world that He gave his only begotten Son Jesus Christ not only to save us but also to full fill the given scriptures. Jesus himself is the word of God and we are provided with heavenly manna which is the word of God. Man does not live by bread alone but by every word of God we should accept God 's word and keep his word and commandments until rapture as this is the symbol that we love God through Jesus Christ.

 


Irene's comment about verse 6 on 1/23/2015, 1:01pm...

This script Matthew 5:6 says when you are hungry for food you eat. but to be hungry for God means to seek the things that he honor, do not do things to please "man " but put on the whole armor of God, so God is give us the spiritual food, that we need to fulfil his honor and Glory. and to keep coming back for more until we are full of God 's word. Gbu all

 


Abie's comment about verse 3 on 1/19/2015, 10:34pm...

Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven..... i believed that God refers to those who are truly hungered with the spirit of God. they are thirsty, and so much desired to know more about God that it caused them to be broken, meek and humble before God... they are those who truly strive to do the will of God. so passionate to know the attributes of God. yeah my brethren this is not about earthly things. It s all about God, it s all about heavenly things.. and i believed that God will truly blessed those who are truly seeking Him in spirit and in truth and desiring to die on their flesh. God will blessed them through causing them more to be poor in spirit, that will strive them more to do the will of GOD.

 


Stu's comment about verse 17 on 1/19/2015, 2:36am...

it is through Christ the entire law is fulfilled ,by his Blood we are forgiven of all sins. Which the law could never do by any means because it was depending on your right doing which is impossible since we were all sinners so hence were all condemned to death ,but thankfully Jesus came in human flesh the Son of God and He was the only one who could fulfil it so that though Him we are Justified from all thinks and get to inherit all His blessings that we did not deserve by any means , the law was introduced to bring man to the end of himself . Also Remember the Law was what man brought on himself but was not what God wanted ,His main purpose is Grace that continued from our loving saviour Jesus Christ. READ Exodus 19:8 .

 


Joni G's comment on 1/13/2015, 9:54am...

Bill, your comments on Jaunary 3rd are very well said and eliminate confusion on sin in the Christian life. Like it says in 1 John, when we ask God to forgive us, He will. Praise God!

 


Jakale McDonald's comment about verse 15 on 1/10/2015, 3:10pm...

I like it

 


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's comment on 1/03/2015, 10:11am...

Part 2 of 2: This is why Paul stated he dies daily, 1 Corinthians 15: 31 "I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily ". If I can say it like this, he was constantly putting his flesh under subjection to live saved. Humans respond to the lust of the flesh, lust of the eye, and the pride of life, this is what is in the world, 1 John 2: 16. In Galatians 5: 6 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh . In the end, a person who has not kept their flesh under subjection can still be left here when the rapture takes place because they did not stay saved, example the 10 Virgins, 5 were wise and 5 were foolish.

 


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's comment on 1/03/2015, 10:08am...

Part 1 of 2: Hello Bill: You are correct in that the spirit of God cannot sin. These scriptures are referring to resisting temptations. Those who are truly filled with the Holy Ghost have the power to resist temptation if they want to. However, since we are still living in these fleshly bodies we are subject to error. Humankind is made up of body, soul, and spirit. When the Holy Ghost enters, with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the spirit of God gives utterance, the old man spirit is cast out and the new man spirit Holy Ghost takes over. The soul is what will live on forever either in hell or heaven. The flesh will return back to dust. As long as a person is human you will continue to make mistakes, even in Holiness.

 


Bill's comment on 1/03/2015, 5:51am...

Here are the verses that help us understand Matthew 5 in relation to "Soul Perfection " --- Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God 1 Jn. 3:9 . As saints, we do not sin in the realm of our spirit, because our spirit has been made completely righteous at salvation. Old things have passed away all things have become new. The Spirit of God dwells in the realm of our spirit, and it is a completely holy habitation, having been justified and positionally sanctified. However, the realm of the soul is an entirely different story. Thus, the apostle John could say this: If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us 1 Jn. 1:8, 10 . The verses quoted above may sound in conflict, but they are not, when we understand that chapter 3 is referring to the spirit of man while chapter 1 is referring to the soul. Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not 1 Jn. 3:6 .

 


Bill's comment on 1/03/2015, 5:46am...

It is important to recognize that in Matthew 5 Jesus is not teaching the doctrine of justification. In other words, He is not teaching that if one would go to heaven, he must have greater righteousness than the Pharisees, in the sense of having the imputation of Christ s righteousness at salvation which makes a believer righteous in the spirit realm of his being . Rather, Jesus is teaching soul perfection, which is the idea of living completely righteous, in conformity to God s will, both inside and out unlike the Pharisees, who were primarily focused on the outside. Again, perfection doesn t mean sinless it simply means not sinning. That may sound perplexing, but perhaps it will become clearer when examining two seemingly contradictory verses in John s first epistle.

 


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's comment on 1/01/2015, 10:26pm...

Hello Joni G.: In addition to my comment, I hope will come out, in regard to Colossians, this people were saved. They were in Christ. To be in Christ you have to put on his name by following Acts 2: 38. You cannot have just baptism. If a person has not the spirit of Jesus Christ he is none of his, Romans 8:9. Paul recognized the Colossian church as being saved and in Christ, just like him.
