The Son of God wants us to come up the mountain and be taught in his class room, not the class room of this world! Let us follow him up the mountain and examine his teachings and let His Word teach us the righteous path that can only come from the only True God. His teachings have never change they are today the same as when he taught his disciples on that mountain. You cannot say this about the teachings of men, they blow with the wind of change and are as movable as the strange woman in the book of Proverbs.
Matthew 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
1 Corinthians 2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
Blessing comes from the Son of God, not of anything of this world, lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes or the pride of life.
Those who are poor in spirit, not poor in possessions. Bankrupt in the spirit of man. We are totally depended upon God not of the spirit of man or the wisdom man. God is everything not just a duty to go to church on Sunday. God is everything because:
Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Col 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Col 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven, not of the things which are seen but of the things not seen which are eternal and not temporal.
Matthew 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
1 Thessalonians 3:7 Therefore, brethren, we were comforted over you in all our affliction and distress by your faith:
They that mourn, grieve and sorrow over a loss that reaches to the soul of the person. When we lose a love one or very special friend. Could our special person in our life be the LORD JESUS CHRIST, oh how do we feel when someone shows no respect for someone that is so important to us as our family or a very special person in our lives. Oh how they treated the one who died for me and they mock his name even to this day. They crucified my precious Lord and Saviour because he was the Light of this world and men love darkness rather than the Light. My sin should make me sorrowful, but my Saviour had the power to lay down his life for my sin and take his life up again to show victory over death, for all who believe in him unto every lasting life. Yes we are greatly comforted knowing we will see him when we are change into his likeness; Praise God for our God Reigns.

1 Timothy 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
Micah 6:11 Shall I count them pure with the wicked balances, and with the bag of deceitful weights?
Mt 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Galatians 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Mt 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Mt 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Mt 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Persecution is not the thing that Christians today want to think about, don’t we have enough troubles without adding that to it. But we should not listen to error of man’s reasoning for what does the scripture says:
Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.
We are not told being a little Christ was going to be a easy job and everything was going to be good for us. But is it worth it, with out any shadow of doubt or hesitation exceeding abundantly absolutely yes!
2 Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
There is only one class room on the subject of Life and it is not of this earth it was taught by the Son of God who came down from heaven to this earth and instructed all mankind by his Mighty Words and by His Mighty Works which were recorded in the Holy Bible.
John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. Jesus Christ is life every lasting and in no other name is eternal life possible.
I pray to God that his words not my words will accomplish what it is sent to do.
