a recognition of POVERTY OF SPIRIT:
blessed are the POOR in Spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven, amen and amen:
what I see now that I didn't ever really see before:
There are a few comments from Jesus that sound like he was being sarcastic in a way, and I guess I must have taken it as such and never give it much thought before, but NOW I realize that Jesus was NEVER sarcastic really, but he told the truth, even if the hearer didn't understand it as such.
Mar 2:16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?
Mar 2:17 When Jesus heard [it], he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
ME: to me it always sounded like Jesus was saying if you realize you are sick, then you will repent but if you don't realize you are sick, you won't.
Now it is true, but the reason it is true is because NOT EVERYONE is POOR IN SPIRIT: Not everyone has come to themselves as the prodigal son that they are because they lost all their "LIVING" (life force) and realize they would rather be a servant in the Fathers house than hang with the world any longer. They are so poor and no man will give them anything any longer. It is like men only want you if you still have RICHES, or "spiritual life" because all life is spiritual and everyone loves a WINNER, loves someone who has a lot of LIFE..........even if they don't know why they have it, or what THE SOURCE OF THAT LIFE IS and they don't feel any need to be grateful that God shines his light and gives his life to the evil and the good:
people who are still rich (in spirit) and that is the only kind of riches the Bible talks about, they are those on the 'broad road" that will eventually lead to destruction, because no man will be able to PREVENT his life force from draining from him. No man has that power to really tell God what God should do, even though when one is rich in spirit, they THINK it is all theirs to squander and use as they will. God lets them do just that: HE doesn't put any demands on the prodigals till they COME TO THEMSELVES and rightfully SEE THEIR TRUE CONDITION and NEED to REPENT/RETURN to the FATHERS house:
the prodigal son and the widow are both the same poor in spirit: The son is the widow because God marries his sons when they become widows; He will not marry them while they are still married to their "old spirit", the antichrist spirit.
Mar 12:41 ¶ And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
Mar 12:42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
Mar 12:43 And he called [unto him] his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
Mar 12:44 For all [they] did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, [even] all her living.
ME: giving up all one has, is not done by those who are rich in spirit which is why Jesus said, it is easier for a camel (poor man) to go through the "eye of the needle" (Narrow road to life) than a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God:
written in three of the four gospels:
Mat 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Mar 10:25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Luk 18:25 For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
for more of that point, I post Mathew
Mat 19:25 When his disciples heard [it], they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
Mat 19:26 But Jesus beheld [them], and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
ME: men can't save themselves; With God all things are possible because God SET A LIMIT on Satan, on the spirit of error, on antichrist: Satan can't KEEP getting Gods spirit forever. He has a certain amount, and it is for six days and thats it: Hence, after six days, Satans kingdom will come to an end because the woman, the prodical sons, will realize they are PLUM OUT OF SPIRIT/LIFE FORCE.
Mat 19:27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?
Mat 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Mat 19:29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
Mat 19:30 But many [that are] first shall be last; and the last [shall be] first.
Luk 15:11 ¶ And he said, A certain man had two sons:
Luk 15:12 And the younger of them said to [his] father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth [to me]. And he divided unto them [his] living.
Luk 15:13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance (spiritual riches) with riotous living.
Luk 15:14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
ME: the famine comes when the abomination of desolation is revealed in the HOLY PLACE, the HEART of the temple that we are: Till we see that we are NOTHING without God, we don't understand why we NEED SALVATION: We simply can't fathom it and therefore CHRISTIANITY is only for those who are READY TO RETURN, repent, go home to the FATHERS HOUSE:
it is not for those who are still rich in spirit:
Luk 15:15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
Luk 15:16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
ME: that is another thing that happens: NO matter how much we fill ourselves with the swines food, it won't fill us any longer. AND because Satan hates those who are leaving HIS KINGDOM, he will make sure you get nothing from this world, nothing FROM THOSE WHO ARE STILL RICH in spirit, independantly wealthy so to speak: They will hate you as they hated Jesus, because this is the TIME FOR LEAVING....going home and no evil spirit with his own riches, wants to EVEN THINK of that time, much less help those who SEE this reality, this lack of spiritual riches FOR WHAT IT IS:
Luk 15:17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
Luk 15:18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
Luk 15:19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
Luk 15:20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
ME: the kiss is the REGENERATION OF SPIRIT;
When Judas kissed Jesus, he knew it would not PERISH in the WAY........durin the time of wrath, the wrath of the Lamb, which is the wrath of the GOOD WILL againtst evil in us: God destroys the antichrist/Satan, through this wrath, fire baptism, the "CROSS", but in this destruction, the KISS prevents the SOUL FROM DEATH.....hence, those who are in the first resurrection (BRING FORTH THE SON), are blessed, because even though these (house of David/Judah) who are first to actually experience JESUS CHRIST, are LAST TO submit their WILL to him.
Psa 2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish [from] the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed [are] all they that put their trust in him.
Luk 22:48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
ME: the exchange of one spirit for another, a dead spirit for a LIVING SPIRIT, which is FOUND IN THE SON in us, must happen for those who have COME TO THE END, in order to be REGENERATED......
the regeneration is the MESSIANIC RESTORATION:
Jam 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
ME: without the anointing (CHRIST IN US) in the NAME of the Lord, JESUS, there is no healing, no regeneration and no RECONNECTION to the SOURCE, the FATHER of all living:
God is a GOD of the LIVING and not the dead (spiritually), but CHRIST is Lord of the living and dead, because the CHRIST, OIL, ANOINTING is HOW THE LIVING ONE MOVES around in the SOUL:
if the SOUL is not anointed, it has no LIFE IN IT:
Jhn 6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
Jhn 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Rev 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither [whatsoever] worketh abomination, or [maketh] a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
ME: it is called the LAMBS BOOK OF LIFE for a reason: ONLY the Lambs (WILLS) that follow Jesus into the regeneration, will be written in that BOOK: those who do not, their names will be taken out of that book:
so everyone who is CHOSEN to be regenerated at the END of time, is written therein
only those who don't FINISH the race where "ONE" WINS, will KNOW THEIR NAME, the NEW NAME that only they themselves can KNOW
many will come in JESUS name, but if they are not BAPITZED INTO that name, they don't really KNOW THAT NAME:
using the name
and knowing the name
are two different things:
Mal 1:11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name [shall be] great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense [shall be] offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name [shall be] great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.
Mal 1:14 But cursed [be] the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I [am] a great King, saith the LORD of hosts, and my name [is] dreadful among the heathen.
Mal 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
Mat 18:5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
Mat 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
ME: just because someone says they are Christ and say it in Jesus name, doesnt mean it will be the truth:
what are they really saying?
I AM ANOINTED.........and they say it in Jesus name:
how will we know who is truly anointed?
we have to become ONE OF THE ELECT, because they KNOW who they are........but others will not know you just because you come in JESUS NAME:
if they are NOT ANOINTED, they will hate you instead of ACCEPT you:
and if they are anointed, the will be able to TELL IF ONE IS LYING by saying they are when they are NOT:
Mar 9:37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
Mar 9:39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
Mar 9:41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
Mar 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Luk 9:48 And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.
Jhn 5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
ME: JESUS NAME IS IN THE FATHERS NAME, hence YAHSHUWAH means "SALVATION" and Yashuwah is in the NAME OF YHV(w)H:
w and v are the same value in Hebrew:
Jhn 10:25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
Jhn 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Jhn 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it].
Jhn 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Jhn 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
Jhn 16:23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give [it] you.
Jhn 16:24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
Jhn 16:26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
Rom 9:17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
1Cr 5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Hbr 2:12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
Jam 5:10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
Rev 2:13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, [even] where Satan's seat [is]: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas [was] my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
Rev 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
Rev 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, [which is] new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and [I will write upon him] my new name.
ME: the name of Jesus and the Name of YHVH are really ONE name, because JESUS IS IN THAT NAME of his FATHER, since they are ONE>
Jesus is the GOOD WILL (out of the abundance of the HEART the mouth speaks) and Jesus is the SON (WORD) IN GODS BOSOM:
God is spirit and spirit is life: Christ is the MEDIUM God flows in and through us, the soul he is making: God is WILL and Christ is the EXPRESSION of that WILL in us and Jesus is the name of the soul who experiences this to its completion in US:
