Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Merry Christmas, you guys)
Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.


You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5


Have a joyful Christmas season, you guys!
God loves you more than you can imagine.

:jesusstar:

fyi: being "poor in spirit" means being so defeated and bankrupt in the spirit from suffering that you got practically nothin' left.

a mystery of God: he lifts up the humbles, and humbles the exalted. He blesses those who recognize their need for Him - that none can boast but of Him!

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Of course they want you to be meak in the bible, so it becomes easier to manipulate and take advantage of someone.

[sigh]

the Greek translation does not mean the same thing as we understand in English.

Biblical meekness is not weakness but rather refers to exercising God's strength under His control – i.e. demonstrating power without undue harshness.

Re: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Merry Christmas, you guys)
Meekness -

once, a long time ago i heard a man explain the word we call "meek" was in ancient times used to describe an excellent war horse in that a man could ride it without great effort to guide it that the horse would respond to his sway in the saddle, to the touch of his knee and go the direction guided
It did not take a whip nor a strong two handed pull on the reins to guide the horse, and this quality was greatly desired for a battle horse. Such a quality enables the rider to use his hands to hold weapons more than holding the reins.

The stallion was originally wild. But with proper submission to training, the horse becomes useful to its master. It gave up its own will to the will of the master.

A poor analogy, but one that is somewhat close in some ways. The flesh shrinks from such a description, but isn't that what Jesus meant when He told us to die to self so we can live as unto God.
Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. You can feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love. What is God? The Eternal One Life underneath all the forms of life. What is love? To feel the presence of that One Life deep within yourself and within all creatures. To be it. Therefore, all love is the love of God.

Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to die before you die - and find that there is no death.

Re: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Merry Christmas, you guys)
I cant answer your question without prayer, reading, and research but I can say this:

1 The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad;
let the distant shores rejoice.
2 Clouds and thick darkness surround him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him
and consumes his foes on every side.
4 His lightning lights up the world;
the earth sees and trembles.
5 The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
before the Lord of all the earth.
6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
and all peoples see his glory.
 Quoting: PSALM 97


God is surrounded in mystery (smoke, clouds, thick darkness). His ways are as far different from our ways, as the heavens are above the Earth, and 'Who is like unto God?' I think there will come a time by His grace that we will see things clearly, as now we see things as through a cloudy mirror, but when precisely that time will be I do not know, but St. Paul teaches us it will be in the twinkling of an eye. [c.f. 1 Corinthians 13, 15]
