Matthew 6

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).

11Give us this day our daily bread.( The crumbs and slices to lead us to the truth as without it we have no meat and we shall receive meat in due season before the harvest)

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

thus carrying on the tradition of the Founding Fathers’ (plural with ownership Fathers’ )

Matthew 10:5-15

These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay. Acquire no gold or silver or copper for your belts, no bag for your journey, or two tunics or sandals or a staff, for the laborer deserves his food. And whatever town or village you enter, find out who is worthy in it and stay there until you depart. As you enter the house, greet it. And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it, but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. And if anyone will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet when you leave that house or town. Truly, I say to you, it will be more bearable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town.

Kingdom?…of the King

Do not be of this world?

Of the King of Heaven?

Of God?

The people of God should be of God by walking and talking in spiritual ways.

Lead by Example?

To lead you must first learn to follow…..

To follow the example you have learned well enough to lead and thus can lead by example.

To be in communion with God you must receive the Holy Spirit of God.

The Kingdom? The of God

The kingdom of Heaven?

The of God of Heaven?

The Holy Spirit of God of our father who art in heaven……God the father in Heaven
These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel(lost, confused or misguided members of God’s congregation so they will protect the lambs “youth poor in spirit” to be of the Holy Spirit of God once again in unity) . And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.(It is in your hands to choose to place yourself in God’s hands to receive the Holy Spirit of God you must obey the covenant the choice is yours and the time is always at hand as there is no time better than right now)’ Heal the sick(lacking the Holy spirit of God needing “the physician”), raise the dead(show them the way lead by example so they will receive and not perish but instead have everlasting life), cleanse lepers(cleanse the afflicted stilled walking in fleshly wicked ways), cast out demons(this is how you rid the world of evil and cast out demons). You received without paying(if you follow the example “the covenant” you have become an example and do not pay for sins as now you are free from sin); give without pay(Lead by example and they shall follow)( you received the Holy Spirit by honoring the covenant casting aside sin you cannot give the  way to the Holy Spirit with Sin as an example for if you sin you have become the hypocrite and make them twice the child of hell as you are by giving a bad example). Acquire no gold(Evil) or silver(temptation) or copper(the Dead in Spirit) for your belts(circles – For the shepherd shepherds the sheep and the sheep surround the lamb if the sheep be found as wolves the lamb is devoured), no bag for your journey(no bag for one ready for the Holy Spirit is pure having no burden to carry for the one on the path their burden is light), or two tunics (because you are either of the flesh or of the spirit you cannot be both) or sandals (do not walk in the ways of the flesh) or a staff (and the spirit shall sustain you and will lift you up and you), for the laborer( the one who does God’s will) deserves his food(Spirit). And whatever town or village you enter, find out who is worthy in it and stay there until you depart. As you enter the house, greet it. And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it, but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. And if anyone will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet when you leave that house or town. Truly, I say to you, it will be more bearable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town.

Commandment 1

Thou shall have no other God before me.

For our father in heaven is the almighty who art in heaven.

The you that God through the Holy Spirit of God Created shall not know God until receiving the Holy Spirit of God. No Idols nor rituals shall save you. You can follow worldly rituals and make false Idols all day and night but none shall see the Kingdom without first honoring the covenant.

You would not walk before learning.

You would not eat before cooking.

You would not know before being enlightened.

Commandment 2

Love God with all your heart and all your soul, do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and love your neighbor as you would love yourself.

John 14:16

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Follow my example obey the Covenant fulfill the promise The Holy spirit is the way, and the truth, and the spirit who gives life. No one Knows God or shall enter the Kingdom before receiving the Holy Spirit of God.

Thou shall have no other God before me ……..

I am the God “I AM”

I am therefore I am

I have received the Holy Spirit of God who gives life and therefore I live.

Proverbs 30 with Proverbial Wisdom

English: Gian Lorenzo Bernini - Dove of the Ho...

The Dove a Symbol of Peace and Love

Proverbs 30

The words of Agur son of Jakeh. The oracle.
The man declares, I am weary, O God;
I am weary, O God, and worn out.
Surely I am too stupid to be a man.
I have not the understanding of a man.
I have not learned wisdom,
nor have I knowledge of the Holy One.
Who has ascended to heaven and come down?
Who has gathered the wind in his fists?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is his son’s name?
Surely you know!
Every word of God proves true;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
Do not add to his words,
lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar.
Two things I ask of you;
deny them not to me before I die:
Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
give me neither poverty nor riches;
feed me with the food that is needful for me,
lest I be full and deny you
and say, “Who is the LORD?”
or lest I be poor and steal
and profane the name of my God.
Do not slander a servant to his master,
lest he curse you, and you be held guilty.
There are those who curse their fathers
and do not bless their mothers.
There are those who are clean in their own eyes
but are not washed of their filth.
There are those—how lofty are their eyes,
how high their eyelids lift!
There are those whose teeth are swords,
whose fangs are knives,
to devour the poor from off the earth,
the needy from among mankind.
The leech has two daughters:
Give and Give.
Three things are never satisfied;
four never say, “Enough”:
Sheol, the barren womb,
the land never satisfied with water,
and the fire that never says, “Enough.”
The eye that mocks a father
and scorns to obey a mother
will be picked out by the ravens of the valley
and eaten by the vultures.
Three things are too wonderful for me;
four I do not understand:
the way of an eagle in the sky,
the way of a serpent on a rock,
the way of a ship on the high seas,
and the way of a man with a virgin.
This is the way of an adulteress:
she eats and wipes her mouth
and says, “I have done no wrong.”
Under three things the earth trembles;
under four it cannot bear up:
a slave when he becomes king,
and a fool when he is filled with food;
an unloved woman when she gets a husband,
and a maidservant when she displaces her mistress.
Four things on earth are small,
but they are exceedingly wise:
the ants are a people not strong,
yet they provide their food in the summer;
the rock badgers are a people not mighty,
yet they make their homes in the cliffs;
the locusts have no king,
yet all of them march in rank;
the lizard you can take in your hands,
yet it is in kings’ palaces.
Three things are stately in their tread;
four are stately in their stride:
the lion, which is mightiest among beasts
and does not turn back before any;
the strutting rooster, the he-goat,
and a king whose army is with him.
If you have been foolish, exalting yourself,
or if you have been devising evil,
put your hand on your mouth.
For pressing milk produces curds,
pressing the nose produces blood,
and pressing anger produces strife.

Proverbs 30
The words of Agur son of Jakeh. The oracle.
The man declares, I am weary, O God;
I am weary, O God, and worn out.
Surely I am too stupid to be a man.(God made man both male and female in the beginning spiritual until we were cursed for transgression)
I have not the understanding of a man.(The spiritual being I am to become to receive the spirit of life once I have put away my fleshly wickedness of the world)
I have not learned wisdom,(The truth in the light of the Holy Spirit of God as true wisdom comes from above)
nor have I knowledge of the Holy One.(The Holy Spirit of God as I have been lost a stranger blinded by my fleshly youth)
Who has ascended to heaven and come down?(But the Holy Spirit of God)
Who has gathered the wind in his fists?(For through him all things are moved throughout time and space to inspire all things made and unmade)
Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? (The spirits in his protection a new host or I.E. vessel I.E. wine sack as we drink of the spirit and not evil spirits is it no wonder they call alcohol and liquor “spirits”)
Who has established all the ends of the earth?(ordered by God the Holy Spirit of God hovered over the void and created all things – Genesis)
What is his name, and what is his son’s name?(God and the Holy Spirit of God)
Surely you know!
Every word of God proves true;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.(None come to the father”God” but through me “The Holy Spirit of God” as he gave all those receiving and honoring the covenant the right to become children of God)
Do not add to his words,(religious persecutions and rituals with their forgotten roots as man shall not live by them alone but every word that came from the mouth of God)
lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar.( a false teacher not tending to his vineyard)
Two things I ask of you;
deny them not to me before I die:
Remove far from me falsehood and lying;(the yeast of the bread revealing the true word – “the feast of unleavened bread‘s root)
give me neither poverty nor riches;(neither lack of The Holy Spirit or worldly riches as true riches are waiting for me in his kingdom not of this world)
feed me with the food that is needful for me,(Do not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil but drink of the spirit and eat of the unleavened bread as true wisdom comes from above and is the knowledge of God)
lest I be full and deny you(full of evil and impure unable to contain the grace of receiving the Holy Spirit)
and say, “Who is the LORD?”(Lest I be full of evil and not receive the grace of the holy spirit as a lamb sent to slaughter by my wicked ways not being a pure offering to the Lord as a new wine sack to receive The Holy spirit)
or lest I be poor(lacking spirit) and steal (for woe unto them who make them twice the child of hell by teaching false words adulterating the word of God as rituals and words will not save only actions and professions of faith – merit – without you will be stealing those away from the owner when the servant comes to receive them at harvest)
and profane the name of my God.(Adulterating his words)
Do not slander a servant to his master,(do not send an impure offering to the Holy Spirit as he shall see not only the words but the actions to prove upon the merits)
lest he curse you, and you be held guilty.(as it is written those false teachers shall see the darkest of darkness forever)
There are those who curse their fathers (father on earth, Holy Spirit the creator, and God)
and do not bless their mothers.(Mother on earth of the flesh, and mother – from the kingdom of which we come as it is written do not be deceived be not of this world)
There are those who are clean in their own eyes (self righteous not knowing the unleavened word of God trying to be saved by words and rituals alone but it is written “how can I be your master if you do not what I say?”)
but are not washed of their filth.(as water cleanses the earth the Holy Spirit of God cleanses the pure of heart honoring the covenants)
There are those—how lofty are their eyes,(as they seek worldly acceptance and seek the approval for worldly accomplishments)
how high their eyelids lift!(yet they are spiritually blind)
There are those whose teeth are swords,(the wolves looking for the lost with out sheep or shepherd as lambs to slaughter)
whose fangs are knives,(that dig deep to destroy God’s congregation)
to devour the poor(those lacking the truth and spirit) from off the earth,(the vineyard God hath set in place to harvest the pure spirits who have divorced the wickedness of the flesh I.E. the wife of their youth a spirit born into flesh to achieve grace and ascend to the kingdom of God)
the needy from among mankind.(as God created man both male and female and separated us from him for transgression to seek the light in the dark–darkness the wanting of light — light – the truth the wisdom of God – I.E. those needing the Holy Spirit of God to be saved)
The leech has two daughters:
Give and Give.(For they do not Give and receive they only take and destroy true life)
Three things are never satisfied;(the vineyard not tended, the lost without a guide, the trials that cannot be stopped without God’s love the Holy Spirit)
four never say, “Enough”:(The blind in Spirit cut off from the father in Heaven)
Sheol, the barren womb,(the seedless vineyard without the Holy Spirit)
the land(host I.E. vessel I.E. wine sack) never satisfied with water,(spirit)
and the fire ( as he will sit as a refiner of silver and to refine silver you must watch it until you see your image in it- therefore without God’s truth at times of trial leaving the silver to long burns it up and destroys it) that never says, “Enough.”
The eye (the wicked ways of the flesh without spiritual eyes) that mocks a father(by words and rituals but does not act in accordance will lack merit)
and scorns to obey a mother (a mother – singular – from the kingdom from which you came often referred to as the Jerusalem in heaven – defying God’s will)
will be picked out by the ravens of the valley (The valley of death as flesh ” the old wine sack will burst not being able to contain the spirit and shall perish in spiritual death not seeing everlasting life)
and eaten by the vultures.(The evil they are surrounded by picking away at them with temptation)
Three things are too wonderful for me;
four I do not understand:
the way of an eagle in the sky,(The one who watches over me for no one understands God without his Spiritual Guidance)
the way of a serpent on a rock,(The evil that upon a rock can only be if not on the rock of foundation- The Holy Spirit of God)
the way of a ship on the high seas,(this one shall be revealed to you when you receive it yourself)
and the way of a man with a virgin.( the way of a man “complete putting away childish things and becoming spiritual in maturity” who has received to plant the seed for one who has not –  God made man both male and female)
This is the way of an adulteress:
she eats and wipes her mouth (the womb of the world eats of the evil seed and hides as a wolf in sheep’s clothing)
and says, “I have done no wrong.”(self righteously)
Under three things the earth trembles; (God, the Holy Spirit, and the servants with a Godly congregation)
under four it cannot bear up:(under evil it cannot ascend)
a slave (as to be free from the bondage of sin we must divorce the wickedness of flesh) when he becomes king,( when evil is allowed to rule over good by transgressions and the lack of spirit….sheep to protect the lamb and shepherds to tend the flock.. for he sent them out as sheep among the wolves as sheep protect their lambs and shepherds keep the flock “congregation” together)
and a fool when he is filled with food;(lacking spirit filled with worldly knowledge and seeds of evil)
an unloved woman when she gets a husband,(for it is written the holy spirit is the bride groom yet if you are not pure it is written he shall not know the workers of lawlessness)
and a maidservant when she displaces her mistress. (a servant when displacing the master- “how can I be your master when you do not what I say)
Four things on earth are small,
but they are exceedingly wise:
the ants are a people not strong,(divided by rituals and religions and the yeast in the bread we are weak)
yet they provide their food in the summer;(meat in due season planting the seed with the faith of a mustard seed to harvest in abundance the good will and God’s purpose)
the rock badgers are a people not mighty,(building their house on firm foundations – The Holy Spirit is the rock)
yet they make their homes in the cliffs;( look for wisdom on high as true wisdom comes from above)
the locusts have no king,
yet all of them march in rank;( in unity each member has a purpose and skill and together a task is accomplished to establish divinity yet – evil shall deny God and stand against you if you do not know the way as evil has no king and has been denied entry into the kingdom and seek to devour it as locusts hence why God sent the locusts to teach evil a lesson they did not understand)
the lizard you can take in your hands,(for it is written to teach the kingdom of heaven is at hand)
yet it is in kings’ palaces.(plural – the choice is your’s and no other can choose for you – God gave man both male and female dominion over earth and it is by your works and measure that thou shall judge as a lizard is a chameleon it can be renewed beware of wolves but wolves can also be renewed as it is written one day the wolves and sheep shall dine together)
Three things are stately in their tread;(God, The Holy Spirit and the children of God planting seeds to tread out the grain (spirit) for the harvest)
four are stately in their stride:
the lion, which is mightiest among beasts (god)
and does not turn back before any;
the strutting rooster(The Holy Spirit who awakens you upon your rebirth in the spirit), the he-goat,(the child of God)
and a king whose army is with him.(congregation of God who stands for God in purity)
If you have been foolish,(without spiritual guidance) exalting yourself,(self righteousness)
or if you have been devising evil,(slaughtering the lambs having no sheep or shepherd to tend the vineyard by lack of spirit and teaching leavened bread)
put your hand on your mouth.(and speak not of the leaven but seek truth and the Holy Spirit shall set you free)
For pressing milk produces curds,(The press of the vineyard was a wine press to press spirits, milk rots and becomes curd and the Lord accepts no substitutions I.E. rituals and words by false doctrines having no works as it is written the flesh shall perish but all those receiving the grace of God The holy spirit shall not perish but become everlasting)
pressing the nose produces blood,( for the hypocrite lifts his nose and is to righteous shedding the blood of the lamb instead of producing water into wine “spirit” since we did not understand when Jesus was stabbed with the spear water flowed from him to give you this key)
and pressing anger produces strife.(for without love and the wisdom from God religions and rituals separate us with strife for this is the purpose of the greatest being the 2 love God and Love your neighbor as yourself)

We are all his creations and we are all his temples and we all were given the choice….

God Bless,

2 Timothy 3:16

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,

Luke 12:48

But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

http://video.foxnews.com/v/1430210153001/obama-evokes-faith-when-talking-taxes/?playlist_id=86927

These words were spoken recently out of context in  a speech reported by FNC Fox News Channel………let us clarify them today

But the one who does not know (the wisdom of God through the Holy Spirit) and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much (responsibility), much will be demanded(wisdom and Knowledge for Guidance in true faith); and from the one who has been entrusted with much(the Public “Congregation’s” trust), much more will be asked(the Ox must tread out the grain to provide spiritual wisdom to achieve peace on earth).

Prov 3:19-20 By wisdom (Spirit-the Holy spirit of God hovered over the void and created all things made- Genesis chapter 1) Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place( by love care and protection he put the firmament around the world his vineyard- Genesis chapter 1); by his knowledge the deeps (spirits born and unborn)were divided.

Genesis 1:6
And God said, “Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water.”
between the spirits as the holy spirit breathed the water(Spirit) of life into us in the beginning to separate us from him until we have learned to conduct ourselves in spiritual ways

1 Cor 13:8-12

For if there are prophecies they will be fulfilled and done with, if there are “tongues” (different languages twisted into self righteous opinions and Agendas) the need for them will disappear, if there is knowledge (worldly thoughts and opinions) it will be swallowed up in truth(the Holy Spirit). For our knowledge is always incomplete and our prophecy is always incomplete, and when the complete (Holy Spirit) comes, that is the end of the incomplete(worldly wickedness of the flesh). When I was a little child(born into flesh) I talked and felt like a little child(in fleshly ways). Now that I am a man (as God created man both male and female by spirit in the beginning and through the covenant I have achieved his grace) I am finished with childish things(wickedness and fleshly ways). At present we are men looking at puzzling reflections in a mirror(trying to find ourselves a way back to the revelation of his spirits image by our acts not just our lips and observances). The time will come when we shall see reality whole and face to face(as we again become one with the spirit on the day of at-one-ment)! At present all I know is a small fraction of the truth(spirit that is but crumbs to follow back into the Lord’s way), but the time will come when I shall know it as fully as God has known me(for when I accept his promise and honor the covenant I shall be in his Holy Communion)!

Prov 24:3-4 By wisdom (spirit) a house (host) is built (filled), and through understanding(wisdom and love) it is established(made to be sustained); through knowledge(enlightenment) its rooms (descendants) are filled (saved) with rare and beautiful treasures (the rewards of God).

Prov 19:2 It is not good to have zeal without knowledge(the Holy Spirit of God), nor to be hasty (self Righteous) and miss the way(examples given through the signs and seasons including the lessons of flesh).

Hos 4:6  My (God’s) people are destroyed from lack of knowledge(Spirit).

Eph 5:17  Therefore, do not be foolish(stricken by temptations of the flesh “world”), but understand what the Lord’s will is(Spirit of God’s purpose is).

Prov 23:23  Buy(The cost is honoring the covenant) the truth (Spirit)and do not sell it(and hold fast to your promise in return lest you be cast off for being defiled in his house); get wisdom(Spirit), discipline(Fast when dealing with trials and tribulations for we are each equally suffered unto the Lord), and understanding(unconditional love for God).

Prov 9:6 Leave your simple ways (worldly ways) and you will live(be redeemed); walk in the way of understanding(the Holy Spirit of God).

Jam 1:5  If any of you lacks wisdom(the Holy Spirit of God), he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault(by honoring the covenant set down before thee), and it will be given to him(by and through repentance of our sins and divorcing the wife “flesh” of our youth).

Prov 8:11  For wisdom(Holy Spirit of God) is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her (the wife of your rebirth in spirit).

Prov 19:8  He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who cherishes understanding prospers.

Prov 13:20 He who walks with the wise (spirit) grows wise (spirit), but a companion of fools (wickedness of flesh)suffers harm.

Prov 24:5-6  A wise (spiritual) man has great power (for thine is the Kingdom the power and the Glory forever Amen), and a man of knowledge (God) increases strength. For waging war you need guidance, and for victory many advisers( a body of spirit with spiritual men in a congregation).

Gen 2:17 But you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (eat of the tree of spirit and not of flesh), for when you eat of it you will surely die (because you must choose their is no partiality to being in the spirit of God eating of the tree of flesh only leads to temptation as it was in the Garden of Eden in the beginning).

1 Cor 14:20 Brothers, stop thinking like children(disobedient children outside of the covenant). In regard to evil be infants(to be wise as serpents but innocent as doves “doves-long since a symbol of love), but in your thinking be like adults(spiritual beings full of truth and light in the Holy Spirit).

Rom 16:19b But I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil.

Rom 16:19b I want to see you experts in good, and not even beginners at evil.

Mat 10:16 I am sending you out as sheep among wolves(you must flock together in unity with a shepherd). Therefore, be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.

Phil 4:7  Then, the peace(Spirit) of God, which is beyond our utmost understanding(without it), will keep guard over your hearts and thoughts, in Christ Jesus(the messenger who first received him Jesus becoming the Christ..the Holy Spirit in his flesh).

Job 36:26 How great is God, beyond our understanding!

Prov 3:5,7a Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding…. Do not be wise in your own eyes.

Jam 3:13-17  Is there some wise and understanding man among you? Then let his life be a shining example of the humility that is born of true wisdom. But if your heart is full of bitter jealousy and rivalry, then do not boast and do not deny the truth. You may acquire a certain wisdom, but it does not come from above–it comes from this world, from your own lower nature, even from the devil. For wherever you find jealousy and rivalry you also find disharmony and all other kinds of evil. The wisdom that comes from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, approachable, full of merciful thoughts and kindly actions, straightforward, with no hint of hypocrisy.

1 Cor 1:18-31 The preaching of the cross is, I know, nonsense to those who are involved in this dying world, but to us who are being saved from that death it is nothing less than the power of God. It is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the prudence of the prudent will I reject.” For consider, what have the philosopher, the writer, and the critic of this world to show for all their wisdom? Has not God made the wisdom of this world look foolish? For it was after the world in its wisdom had failed to know God, that he in his wisdom chose to save all who would believe by the “simple- mindedness” of the gospel message. For the Jews ask for miraculous signs and the Greeks an intellectual panacea, but all we preach is Christ crucified–a stumbling-block to the Jews and sheer nonsense to the gentiles… for God’s “foolishness” is wiser than men…. But God has chose what the world calls foolish to shame the wise… that no man may boast in the presence of God…. And this makes us see the truth of the scripture: “He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.”

1 Cor 3:19-21 Let no one be under any illusion over this. If any man among you thinks himself one of the world’s clever ones, let him discard his cleverness that he may learn to be truly wise. For this world’s cleverness is stupidity to God. It is written: “He that taketh the wise in their craftiness”, and again, “The Lord knoweth the reasonings of the wise, that they are vain.” So let no one boast of men.

Knowledge Without Love?

1 Cor 8:1b-2  It is easy to think that we “know” over problems like this, but we should remember that while this “knowing” may make a man look big, it is only love that can make him grow to his full stature. For if a man thinks he “knows” he may still be quite ignorant of what he ought to know.

1 Cor 13:2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge… but have not love, I am nothing.

The Source Of True Knowledge

Prov 2:6,9-11 For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding…. Then you will understand what is right and just and fair–every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.

Mat 11:25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned, and revealed them to little children.”

Jam 1:17 Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow.

God’s Secret, Revealed By The Spirit

1 Cor 2:6-10 We do, of course, speak wisdom among those who are spiritually mature, but it is not what is called wisdom by this world, nor by the powers-that-be, who soon will be only the powers that have been. The wisdom we speak of is that mysterious secret wisdom of God, which he planned before the creation for our glory today…. But, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”. Thus God has, through the Spirit, let us share his secret.

1 Cor 2:10  But God has revealed it [wisdom] to us by his Spirit.

Phil 1:9-10  My prayer is that your love for each other may increase more and more and never stop improving your knowledge and deepening your perception so that you can always recognize what is best. This will help you to become pure and blameless, and prepare you for the Day of Christ.(the day you are pure enough to receive the Holy Spirit for it is written the kingdom of heaven is at hand)

Col 1:9,10 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge (holy Spirit) of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.

Amen

A Few Words Rather than 10000

The Holy Family with God the Father and the Ho...

If the water was turned to wine

the world would be a beautiful place,

Instead a thousand tears drown out the silence

of calm in this place.

We should look to the heavens

for the answers we seek

yet the wolves have blinded the weak.

How much sorrow must the world partake

before they embrace the God they forsake.

Though one often says I have my dreams

they often forget they have within them the means.

When the bread has been sliced and crumbled among men

we can follow the crumbs to find our way back again.

If on our knees is where we should pray

standing on corners God hears not a word we say.

How did we get here away from the land upon which we were blessed

and from where the love among his children we once caressed.

Who gives life that gave not it’s root

who are we not to bear it’s fruit.

The rainbow is the bow around the cloud

A sign about the confusion that speaks so loud.

A promise given is a promise kept

yet outside the covenant is why they wept.

A sun and moon for signs and seasons

a light in the dark for spiritual reasons.

The earth like sand apart slips through the palms of your hands

but with water and mix we build things grand.

Together in the spirit we are in God’s hands

with a little wisdom one understands.

Guard your hearts for it is of passion

for it was of this the Lord showed compassion.

Pray to our father in the Holy One’s name

and together our lives will never be the same.

A history chosen by choice to repeat

and a world brought down to his feet.

How many times must we be pressed before we learn

it is our father who shows his concern.

If we are blind in spirit we are taught through flesh

but with wisdom bodies of the Spirit God will refresh.

Forged in love brought down by fire

look to your heart and keep check of the true desire.

Raise up your house and stand in light

only upon his rock are all things made right.

Is it no wonder they called it old glory

or have you forgotten the true founding story.

Is it no wonder they said for purple mountain’s Majesty?

or have we forgotten it and become a tragedy.

Did they not say crown thy good with brotherhood?

in the body of the Holy Spirit as we should.

Does not Church mean a congregation

or has it been turned into an entertaining sensation.

Does not love endure all things

or have we once again sought worldly kings.

Does a plant not bend toward the light in the way it must grow?

is it no wonder it is written you reap what you sow?

If you plow a wide field do you not plow straight and narrow along the row?

Is it no wonder it is written the way is wide but the path is narrow?

As you walk along that path do you not drop your seeds along the way?

Is it no wonder we were made from the dirt upon which the seeds we must lay?

How many ways have the servants of God taught

before understanding, love  and communion can be wrought.

The tree of life has many branches twigs and stems bearing fruit

with wisdom we must plant our root.

For a tree cut off from its foundation

leads to a simple point of contemplation.

While watching from his towers the guardians have wept

as the vineyard has been terribly kept.

Seek wisdom in the God above

holding fast to the covenant brought about from his love.

This is wisdom:

Everyone born has 3 fathers with one most high

Every spirit grown was once before known

Every seed planted is covered in darkness under the earth to reach up into the light

Every crop not tended withers away

a lamb with a shepherd is saved from slaughter

a shepherd with sheep is always warm

But even a withered a dried up pond is filled and calm after a storm

let he who has wisdom calculate the number of the beast

while the children of God sit about the harvest and feast

Amen

Can O' God
Got God?

Psalm 71

1 In you, O LORD(Holy Spirit of God), I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame(For it is you that sustains me since the beginning when you gave the first breath of life).

2 Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness(so that I too may earn the right to become a child of God);
turn your ear to me and save me(hear my prayer as I come humble before thee).

3 Be my rock of refuge, (foundation that I must build my house, life and host upon) 
to which I can always go; (for you have been there waiting for the harvest and I must be cleansed)
give the command to save me, (so that I may be reborn in spirit casting aside the wickedness of flesh)
for you are my rock and my fortress. (the foundation upon which all is made eternal)

4 Deliver me, O my God(for it is through the Holy Spirit in which I call), from the hand of the wicked( the sin and wickedness of the world),
from the grasp of evil and cruel men. (for they are blind in spirit and have turned away from your light)

5 For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD(Holy Spirit of God),
my confidence since my youth(since being born into the flesh of the world a test of faith for your reward).

6 From birth I have relied on you;
you brought me forth from my mother’s womb(from the Kingdom of Heaven through my mother’s womb) .
I will ever praise you.

7 I have become like a portent to many,
but you are my strong refuge.

~Praise you in this storm by Casting Crowns

8 My mouth is filled with your praise, (as I speak of your words and wisdom giving Glory to God)
declaring your splendor all day long. (for through you(Holy Spirit of God) all things are done and undone)

9 Do not cast me away when I am old; (for I have divorced the ways of my youth and cast off the wickedness of the flesh)
do not forsake me when my strength is gone. (For it is your love and Grace upon which I rely upon to be sustained)

10 For my enemies speak against me; (because their hearts are hardened and they have become spiritually blind)
those who wait to kill me conspire together. (Those false teachers who have coerced others to become spiritually dead and by your words the dead shall cover the dead ashes to ashes and dust to dust)

11 They say, “God has forsaken him; (because they call out master but do not do what you say)
pursue him and seize him, (for they follow their own rituals and wickedness)
for no one will rescue him.” (As they know not of you’re true wisdom and grace)

12 Be not far from me, O God; (for your spirit is with me)
come quickly, O my God, to help me.

13 May my accusers perish in shame;
may those who want to harm me
be covered with scorn and disgrace.

14 But as for me, I will always have hope; (for my reward awaits me at the season of harvest)
I will praise you more and more. (for my lips speak of your way and my actions of your merit)


15 My mouth will tell of your righteousness,
of your salvation all day long,
though I know not its measure. (because it is immeasurable and eternal)

16 I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, O Sovereign LORD; (Holy Spirit of God)
I will proclaim your righteousness, yours alone. (giving Glory to God)

17 Since my youth, O God, you have taught me, (for it was you that sent your Holy Spirit to save the world out of compassion and love)
and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.

18 Even when I am old and gray,
do not forsake me, O God,
till I declare your power to the next generation, (planting the seed in your vineyard as a mustard seed for the faithful)
your might to all who are to come. (Warning all those who oppose you so they might avoid unnecessary suffering)

19 Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God, (for it was you who at a word commanded all things done and undone)
you who have done great things.
Who, O God, is like you?

20 Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, (trials and tribulations)
you will restore my life again; (as I am faithful)
from the depths of the earth (from which my flesh was made to grow into spirit)
you will again bring me up. (back to the spiritual being of which man once was)

21 You will increase my honor
and comfort me once again. (in your garden as you have harvested me from your vineyard)

22 I will praise you with the harp
for your faithfulness, O my God; (for the covenant we keep)
I will sing praise to you with the lyre, (with the Holy Spirit you have connected us all to the tree of life as strands flowing with life)
O Holy One of Israel. (The Holy Spirit)

23 My lips will shout for joy
when I sing praise to you—
I, whom you have redeemed.

24 My tongue will tell of your righteous acts
all day long,
for those who wanted to harm me
have been put to shame and confusion. (for as it was written you set them in derision)

1 Pet 3:21
21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

The flesh is not to be put away but divorced as it is written we are born into flesh and to divorce the wife of our youth and join the bridegroom the holy spirit as the flesh is the old wine sack and the wine is the holy spirit supporting a rebirth in spirit our new wine sack must be pure i.e. We are the host or vessel so to speak the water signifies symbolism of this but it must be by works not just words from our lips amen

Matthew 9:9-14

9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him. 10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and “sinners” came and ate with him and his disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and ‘sinners’?” 12 On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. 13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Matthew 9:14-17

14 Then John’s disciples came and asked him, “How is it that we and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” 15 Jesus answered, “How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast. 16 “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. 17 Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”

Heb 10:19-23
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
21 And having an high priest over the house of God;
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

Having the boldness to divorce the wickedness of fleshly ways and by the spirit that flowed through the veins of jesus as the water signifies spirit when the spear pierced him water flowed to remind us of this truth.

And this second thing you do. You cover the Lord’s altar with tears(from the pain of your transgressions), with weeping and groaning because he no longer regards the offering or accepts it with favor from your hand(because it is of fleshly wickedness). But you say, “Why does he not?” Because the Lord was witness between you and the wife of your youth(for it was he who gave the breath of your life  into your flesh made from the dust of the earth), to whom you have been faithless, though she(flesh as even your worldly wife signifies the need of the divine companion the Holy Spirit of God) is your companion and your wife by covenant( Spiritually flesh is your companion by not following the covenant a marriage between husband and wife signifies the need to honor cherish and uphold). Did he not make them one(flesh and spirit), with a portion of the Spirit(Holy Spirit of God) in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring(Those maturing in spirit with the good seed). So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth(Divorce fleshly sinful ways). “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the Lord, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the Lord of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless.”
—Malachi 2:13-16

By the way he showed us through the veil of the flesh which blinds us spiritually he gave us our example of how to reveal the kingdom with a fleshly example. To also show us how the high priests should tend to the house of God and the holy congregation with love
Let us draw near to God with a true heart of spirit and not of the evil spirits sprinkled upon it since the garden of eden and its transgression. So that our bodies the wine sacks hosts or vessels may be cleansed by the holy spirit that hovered over the void in the beginning and created all things. Let us hold fast to the profession of our faith that we speak from our lips with our actions so as not to become the hypocrite and honor the covenant for the promise was made by the faithful for the faithful and the faithful shall be redeemed in rebirth to become children of God with their inherent divinity.

And when he speaks of his flesh the holy spirit created all things by the authority of God and is lord of the hosts therefore all flesh belongs to him for we are his hosts with the purpose achieving his glory and grace.
