This is a thread of prayers and devil scares, for cleansing of sin and spiritual win, to appreciate the weight of my offering plate. Glory to God!

Don't hybernate, participate.
Yammo be there, up and down, peace, over and out.

John Stott puts it this way: "The Sermon on the Mount is probably the best -known part of the teaching of Jesus, though arguably it is the least understood, and certainly it is the least obeyed" (The Message of the Sermon on the Mount, InterVarsity Press, 1978, p. 15). Let's study it again. Perhaps we will find new treasures as well as old. The beatitudes "Now when [Jesus] saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them" (Matt. 5:1-2). The sermon was not designed for the disciples only. Jesus told them to spread his teachings throughout the world, and Matthew wrote it down for more than a billion people to read. These teachings are for everyone who is willing to listen. First come the beatitudes (the word "beatitude" comes from the Latin word for blessed): "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" (v. 3). What does it mean to be "poor in spirit"? Low self -esteem, low interest in spiritual things? No. Many religious Jews called themselves "the poor," for they often were poor, and the poor had to look to God to supply their daily needs. So Jesus may have been referring to the faithful. But "poor in spirit" suggests something more. Poor people know that they have needs. The poor in spirit know that they need God. They do not imagine that they are doing God any favors by serving him. It is the humble, the dependent, who will be given the kingdom of heaven. They trust themselves to God's mercy. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted" (v. 4). This statement includes an irony, since the word for "blessed" can also mean "happy." Happy are the sad, Jesus says for at least they have the comfort of knowing that their trials are temporary. Everything will be set right. "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth" (v. 5). In ancient society, land was often taken away from the meek. That will also be set right when the kingdom of God rules earth. "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled" (v. 6).

Bledded are the poor in spirt, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
