1Take heed that ye do not your alms (Alms – archaic : charity : something (as money or food) given freely to relieve the poor ” but let us not be full of worldly things for lest we be poor in spirit and fall short of the Kingdom of heaven) before men, to be seen of them( for we were spiritual in the beginning let us remember what God intended us to be) : otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2Therefore when thou doest thine (the divine and of the divinity) alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee (for is it of men that your works are done or of our father in heaven as it is written give the Glory to God), as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth ( for in the body of the Holy Spirit there is a congregation of God and each member has its purpose just as the body of flesh has its hands eyes and ears):
4That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
5And when thou ( The you that God through the Holy Spirit created in the beginning Spiritually) prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men (and not of God for God does not look upon the worldly but his children full of spirit and life). Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet(so that those poor in spirit may receive the blessings our father has given and the blind may see what you have seen and become known), and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly( for you have given glory to our father in heaven).
7But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking (our father knows what you need beyond your understanding).
8Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name (praising his name giving Glory to God for it is written do not put the light under a basket but place it upon high so that it may shine its light in the world).
10Thy kingdom come( the you of God – The Holy Spirit of God come), Thy (the you complete with truth and light full of the Holy spirit of God) will be done in earth (in flesh as we were created from the earth beneath our feet as vessels to receive the breath of life through the Holy Spirit and thus we have divorced the wickedness of the flesh – “the wife of our youth”), as it is in heaven(speaking living and walking in spiritual ways doing God’s purpose as it was in the beginning when the Holy spirit of God hovered over the void).
12And forgive us our sins (Fleshly wickedness) and transgressions (as we have honored the covenant), as we forgive our sinners ( Fleshly wicked) and transgressors (teach the covenant to those outside of it protecting the lamb as we are sheep for the shepherd of shepherds).
13And lead us not into temptation (for we seek the brightest light not of the world but of the kingdom of heaven let not the world tempt us with it’s trickery of temptation), but deliver us from evil: For thine(the divine of the divinity) is the kingdom (Kingdom of Heaven of the Father in Heaven), and the power(thine will, to succeed, to bring forth fruit from the vineyard for the father in heaven) , and the glory(for it is the father in heaven who sent the Holy Spirit of God to redeem us), for ever (as the Holy Spirit of God is the rock of foundation who hovered over the void in the beginning and is the rock of all ages eternal the beginning of beginnings the end of ends and the new beginnings to lead and guide once again in every age to come become or be undone). Amen.
14For if ye forgive men (Plural as man was created both male and female in the beginning) their trespasses (Transgressions from the covenant), your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses (for you have not been teaching and it is the seed that has not yet been planted that brought about this evil for if all evil never saw good then how shall evil be defeated with out love? Did God not send his Holy Spirit throughout the world out of unconditional love?)).
16Moreover when ye fast( do without something of importance to you for a time to show our father you are in need), be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
17But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
18That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.( for it is written with the faith of a mustard seed we cast out evil through prayer and fasting and as it is written bread is not the food that you eat but the words to protect you from the yeast, how then do you think the Lord was speaking of starvation and food?)
19Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth (for if you have too much one must be doing without therefore why have they suffered when the Lord has blessed you with the power to give?), where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: (For if in the land of plenty no one suffered their would not be greed or suffering…is it not written we are each equally suffered unto him?)
20But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven (with our father in heaven’s way and love one another as you would love thine self and remember you are but sheep among the wolves and each sheep is a member and each member a part of the body and the body full of truth and light is a congregation of our father in heaven), where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (put your heart in our father in heaven and not in the way of the world for it was the way of the world that cursed you to be bound to it until you have learned)
22The light of the body is the eye (for we must follow the ways of our father because we lead by example and we follow to learn to lead): if therefore thine (the divine and of the divinity) eye be single (together in congregation in communion with our father through the guidance of receiving the Holy Spirit), thy whole body shall be full of light(the congregation of God is safe and full of truth and light giving the lost the way leading the lamb away from the slaughter into the center of the sheep to be lead by a shepherd and a shepherd by the shepherd of shepherds for it is written The Holy Spirit of God is Lord of the Hosts and we are destine to receive but it is left to us to choose, lead, follow and guide).
23But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24No man can serve two masters (for you serve flesh by teaching sin or you serve Spirit by example and planting the seed for this is the food of which is written that every man should inherit the Kingdom of heaven therefor it is written the kingdom of heaven is at hand for you to choose): for either he will hate the one (worldly wickedness), and love the other(spiritual truth); or else he will hold to the one(world and perish), and despise the other(our father in heaven). Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?(for it is the host of your spirit and if your spirit does not grow when the body has perished so shall thee)
26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?(for it is your fleshly body he has clothed your spirit in yet you have thought yourself to be your clothing?)
31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.(for it is the thoughts of this world to not look to the future and it is that evil that blinds you to the spirit that must grow to become what God made you to be)
By our father in heaven
through the Holy Spirit hovering over the earth
and by our father on earth
we children must seek heavenly seeds
