Discussion for Matthew 5

    John 19:28 "i thirst"

    It's interesting that in this whole chapter - Jesus was teaching only His disciples, and not the multitudes as He usually was in a monologue this long.
  • Irene123
    Pro. 18:24 - song, "Just to walk with Him" - "My steps had led me far away, Sometimes I wondered why, They had taken me down lonely roads, Beneath the darkened sky, But every time I lost my way, He sought me out, He took my hand and said He'd walk with me." Throughout the scriptures, God demonstrates His willingness to compensate for our lack; Ps. 23.
  • Irene123
    Jn. 16:33; Matt. 5:45; Acts 7:59; 16:23; These refer to tribulation (trials) in this life. There will be 'some' saints in Rev.13:7 who will go thru the GREAT tribulation; I haven't r'cvd. clarification on that yet. I KNOW tho' that I will not be one of them because they become saints DURING the GREAT tribulation; how? I don't know; I just take it by faith. A saint NOW will be raptured.

    The darkness of this world is getting darker! You can feel the darkness, in the news and the towns and cities, in the neighborhood and the Churches are turning dark. We,who are cleansed by The Blood (Revelation1:5) are "THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD". (V:14) If they don't see The Light in us!??? WE: THE LIGHT OF THE World are the only LIGHT they will see. Stay trimmed, keep full of oil. Preach the gospel

    THIS ARE THE GOOD WORKS OF CHARITY, DO YOU REMEMBER THE GOOD SAMARITAN?, THE SERMON ON THE MOUNTAIN SAYS BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFULL who delights in doing good to those in need , PEOPLE SHOULD SEE IT AND PRAISE GOD.
