Matthew 5:11 (cont.); Alongside knowing and feeling how much we fall short, and how utterly needy we are continually of the Lord's mercy and guidance in the way we walk through our days; the contemplation that we are suffering for Jesus' sake is most convicting and shines His Light into our innermost self. We are weak and faulty, and so its hard to always say that we suffer for being a Christian.

 


Cephas's comment on 8/10/2017, 6:37pm...

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word. The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

There is no joy in ridicule or persecution itself, but when we endure those things because of our love for Jehovah God and Jesus Christ then we can be happy knowing that we made them rejoice.

 


A disciple's comment on 8/08/2017, 9:59pm...

"Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled." Matthew 5:6 As the Lord is going to first attend to the poor spirited, they that mourn and the meek those who hunger and thirst after righteousness have also had to endure having no hope of things being made right in this world under the current Heathen Regime, but they will have their day! Isaiah 63 4-5 " For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. And I looked, and there was none to help and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me and my fury, it upheld me." When the Lord Jesus Christ is revealed from heaven in power and great glory, and all His holy Angels and Saints with Him all wrongs will be made right! From all those who were plucked from their mother's womb and slain to all who have ever been abused and robbed of their lives, held down under cruelty and oppression all who have been mercilessly persecuted and tortured and slain for being Christians and Jews all who have been slandered, betrayed and their name cast out as evil by wicked family members, relatives or neighbors all servants and workers who have been used and lied at and denied their fair wages ALL WRONGS WILL BE MADE RIGHT WHEN JESUS COMES! Additionally, and more directly toward the meaning in this whole Sermon on the mount those who are born from above and are wholly and rightly converted, will necessarily have the same Spirit of Righteousness and Truth burning in their hearts. We are completely different from, and are a sign and wonder to many, because all the wickedness of the wicked actually and really grieves and torments us! We long for our own weaknesses and shortcomings to be cured once and for all and we long for a world of goodness and truth, of righteousness, and of love for one another. The ungodly don't care a thing for any of these things, and frankly don't know what to do with us because we are like this. But our times and all our ways are in the Lord's hands.

 


Cephas's comment on 8/08/2017, 1:08pm...

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: Blessed be the LORD God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised the LORD. Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen, and Amen.

 


BSP's comment on 8/08/2017, 10:32am...

When God sees one who is just hungering and desiring righteousness, he will bless that person.

A disciple's comment on 8/07/2017, 8:57am...

Dean (cont.); Sir, you said, "Entering the Kingdom of heaven is to have authority." There are a ton of "motivational speakers" posing as Bible preachers and teachers: the Glad Tidings is not a "self improvement" or "self enrichment" course! There is not a method or formula for figuring out some secret code! The Word of God is Spirit and Truth and Life Eternal; and reaches into the innermost parts.

 


A disciple's comment on 8/06/2017, 11:38pm...

Dean; The Son of God came into this world already having the Anointing and the Authority and Commission from the Father; He didn't have to first do anything! All that He did was for our benefit, and our example. The Lord was expounding the same Glad Tidings He was preaching throughout the Country, and describing the divine nature in us by His grace, that will be the result of those Glad Tidings.

 


A disciple's comment on 8/06/2017, 6:26pm...

The Lord sitting down to teach His disciples was to expound what He was preaching everywhere the Announced Glad tidings of the kingdom of heaven at hand beginning with telling us plainly who are the "Blessed." To the ones who have not the kind of spirit in them to withstand the hateful and hostile, and are naturally run over and dominated by the proud those who are the least and the weakest in the eyes of the world these FIRST shall be rewarded their good things, for all the evil things they had to endure. Those with no power to make a stand, or speak up for themselves like the poor beggar laid at the rich man's gate, starving and sick and having NO ONE WHO LOVED HIM these FIRST shall be received with tenderest love and comfort into Abraham's bosom. It is a character trait and a kind of soul that the Lord Jesus Christ seeks first to bring him the good news of salvation. It is the fundamental nature of Jesus' disciples the first evidence of a heart touched by God's acceptance and grace. It is the first thing that will be known of us when we come to appear before Him, to give account of the things we did in life. It is the fact done of truth in the inward parts where our Father in heaven sees in the concealed, and of what men behold in our manner of life.

 


Osaze's comment on 8/06/2017, 5:11pm...

I leaned that in anything you do you have to put God first and no matter what God must intervene in your situation.

 


Cephas's comment on 8/06/2017, 11:58am...

Ye that fear the LORD, praise him all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel. The LORD is my strength and my shield my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth and with my song will I praise him.

 


Dean Kenyon's comment on 8/06/2017, 8:06am...

We tend to attach a moral or emotional understanding to this verse based on the popular conception that 'heaven' is a blissful place we go after death. In the previous two chapters Jesus had just had the "heavens opened to him" after which he endured temptations and trials. From this point forward he heals the sick and raises the dead. Because he had just had authority given to him by the Father....the kingdom of heaven. Entering the Kingdom of heaven is to have authority. "Heaven is my throne..." From the throne, opened to Jesus when he "fulfilled all righteousness" Jesus was given the authority of a king with a throne. What he says must therefore be done. God does not give this authority to the rich in spirit who are self motivated and have their own agenda, but the poor in spirit who receive the promise, endure the trials and temptations and submit to the Father. Our inheritance is to have this same authority. Which type of heaven do you desire? A blissful place for you to live eternally, or an inheritance of authority to command sickness and death and bring righteousness and wholeness and the kingdom of God in the earth?

Blessed are those who completely yield and submit themselves to Christ so, that Christ will do Matthew 5:3-12 in you. Having confidence and reassurance in 5:13-16. If your not completely submitted to Christ, look at vs. 20

Who loves us more than Jesus? No one at all love is kind love knows no pains love sees no wrong love do not hurt love understand remember there is two kinds of love human love and Godly love human love is base on how we are treated but God love looks over our faults and see our needs and God mets all of our needs and he don't talk about us he just love us through things Amen
