The sermon of Jesus, the two ways

And with these words he gave them teaching, saying,
Matthew 5:2

Go in by the narrow door; for wide is the door and open is the way which goes to destruction, and great numbers go in by it.
Matthew 7:13

Everyone, then, to whom my words come and who does them, will be like a wise man who made his house on a rock;
Matthew 7:24

And everyone to whom my words come and who does them not, will be like a foolish man who made his house on sand;
Matthew 7:26

Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ but you don’t do what I say?

Luk 6:46 “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ but you don’t do what I say?
ERV

Mat 7:23 Then I will tell those people clearly, ‘Get away from me, you people who do wrong. I never knew you.’
ERV

Love One Another, The Essence Of ALL LAW And ALL PROPHECY

Mat 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
KJV

1)Mat 7:12 “Por eso, todo cuanto quieran que los hombres les hagan, así también hagan ustedes con ellos, porque ésta es la Ley y los Profetas. NBLH 2)Mat 7:12 Tout ce que vous voulez que les hommes fassent pour vous, faites-le de même pour eux, car c’est la loi et les prophètes. FLS 3)Mat 7:12 Alle dingen dan, die gij wilt, dat u de mensen zouden doen, doet gij hun ook alzo; want dat is de wet en de profeten. DSV

Consider the streams of truth in the word.
God’s Word is living water, a stream of truth.
It is written, Lev 19:18 Love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD. 4)Lev 19:18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.
Again, Is it not written?; Mat 22:39 ‘Love your neighbor the same as you love yourself.’ 5)Mat 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
If this is not what you understand the law to be, it is written;
Gal 5:14 “Love your neighbor the same as you love yourself.” 6)Gal 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
And again, it is written that the things needed for Eternal Life are;
Luk 10:27 “‘Love God and, ‘Love your neighbor the same as you love yourself.'” 7)Luk 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
Again;
Luk 6:31 Love others as you want them to love you. 8)Luk 6:31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
And again; Gal 6:10 please do good to everyone. 9)Gal 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
This is what the word says!
Rom 13:9 All these commands and all other commands are really only one rule: “Love your neighbor the same as you love yourself.” 10)Rom 13:9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
It is written; Jas 2:8 If you obey this Law, you are doing right!
11)Jas 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
Jas 2:9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.

So the prophets do their job and warn;
Isa 1:17 Speak up for the widows and orphans. 12)Isa 1:17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Isa 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Isa 1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Isa 1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
Isa 1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
Isa 1:22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
Isa 1:23 Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

What is the “renewal” when Christ is in your Heart? What is repentance? Turn away and turn to what?
Jer 7:5 If you change your lives and do good things, be fair to each other, be fair to strangers, help widows and orphans, don’t harm innocent people, and don’t put things of this world as your God above THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS, because this will separate you from God and ruin your lives. If you don’t do these things, God will give you eternal peace. 13)Jer 7:5 For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour;
Jer 7:6 If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt:
Jer 7:7 Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.

And the living waters keep on flowing;
Mic 6:8 This is what The LORD wants from you: be fair, Love kindness, loyalty, and humbly OBEY your God.
Yes! It says, obey God! 14)Mic 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
Even to those in Authority, the word is the same;
Dan 4:27 King, please be kind to poor people. So you may continue to be successful. 15)Dan 4:27 Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity.
So it is written.

We Thank You And Praise You Lord God For This Morning
It Is Written, The Poor We Will Always Have
Thank You For Judging Us Through Them.
Better Is One Blessing From A Person Who Has Nothing In This World, Than A Stream Of Praises From Them That Judge Themselves By Their Own Measure.
Better Is Thankfulness From The Person Who Cannot Repay, Than A Gift From Those To Whom The Gift Has No Meaning.
Thank You For Making Love Your Commodity,
Thank You For Making Love The Thing That Can’T Be Bought Or Sold
Thank You For Loving Us
I Love You
And Having Done All, I Stand.
Father God, Bless All Who Have Nothing.
In Jesus Name I Pray.
Amen.

Judgement & Forgiveness

Mat 7:1 “Stop judging, so that you won’t be judged,
Mat 7:2 because the way that you judge others will be the way that you will be judged, and you will be evaluated by the standard with which you evaluate others.
Luk 11:4 and forgive us our sins, as we forgive everyone who sins against us. And never bring us into temptation.
(ISV)

In Every Season
(Day By Day)

Stop Judging
So You Won’t Be Judged
And Forgive
So You Can Be Forgiven

Metro Hate Preacher

As I was taking a metro ride from the Bronx into Manhattan I noticed this strange guy, not strange because of his appearance but because he seemed a contradiction. In his hands he had pamphlets of one kind or another, but he kept trying to avoid eye contact with anyone else on the metro.

He was a slender graying man with uncut hair in a ponytail and a quite graceful white beard. I did not really notice his clothing, a bit worn I guess, more worn than usual. I would even say he was a Semite by his facial characteristics, but then again he could just be Middle Eastern, It just entered my mind that he was Jewish or had something to do with Jews. As always I was right, and as always not in the way I initially thought. Knowing this I decided to just wait it out, men always show their hearts by their own words.

As we crossed into Manhattan and the metro cab was filled to a comfortable crowd, he stood up and starting talking about God and about Love, and the sorrows of this life. I thought if this was his message then we could indeed suffer him for a while, the word of God is always welcome. No one seemed really interested, and I kept looking at him as he started handing out his pamphlets which I refused. I just felt I should not, no real reason why. Everything he had said until now was acceptable, only his demeanor and my first impression of him was not, so I kept listening and looking, could I be so wrong?

And just when I was about to conclude that I must certainly be one of the most paranoid beings on earth, he showed what he was really selling.
“And who do we have to thank for losing our jobs and our high rents? THE JEWS!” oh yes, that is exactly what he said,.. I raised my eyebrow and smiled… Aha, a hate salesman.

To my surprise, the people in the metro sprang to life and started to accept the “invitations to hate” from him, as if they had been awoken by an alarm clock. Boy was I surprised at the underlying openness to hate Jews. He could have sold his pamphlets and bought himself a new suit.

After his initial remark about the Jews many more followed, and the people where now sympathetic and open to all he said, but he did not return to good words, he could not.
I wondered, am I the only one here who sees that this is not a good shepherd. He was leading them to hate, and once you hate one it is increasingly easy to hate the other, and the next. And all under the cover of spreading God’s word. He will be dealt with harshly, not (only) for his own hate but (primarily) for luring and herding others into it as well (JER 23:32, MAT 7:15, 2Pe 2:1).

Jer 23:32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD. (KJV)

 

2Pe 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2Pe 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. (KJV)

This is bad, because this teacher is bringing the destructive error of hate as if it were a truth by appealing to our common sense of justice by linking our brother men into our plight of not being able to pay the rent, the loss of a job and so forth. By instilling hate for other men he is leading us to the devil. And afterward, after hate has taken us over, and we have rejected the teachings of God (love thy neighbor as thyself) and embraced the devil and his hate, the devil will rule over us and wreak more havoc in our lives. The devil knows only destruction, and his pay to his loyal servants is destruction.

So let me end by saying this; listen carefully to whatever you are being thought by your brother , even by your preacher, because whoever teaches something that does not lead to Gods love, is not doing Gods work , and is not your brother, he is the servant of the devil.

As Jesus Christ said;

Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (KJV)
