Good morning, beloved of God,

A new morning, a new coffee cup (my kids gift to me), it’s a good morning. :) I love my new coffee cup. Painted rocks from Luke. A handwritten card from Noah. A robot card from Danny. A painted card from Ella…priceless….An afternoon spent on the river watching children fish…reading my book..

Almost Amish another thought-provoking book…

Let’s dive back into Matthew 7..

We are, today, looking for instructions from Jesus…so let’s begin:

1Do not judge and criticize and condemn others,

You hypocrite, first get the beam of timber out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the tiny particle out of your brother’s eye.

Do not give that which is holy (the sacred thing) to the dogs, and do not throw your pearls before hogs, lest they trample upon them with their feet and turn and tear you in pieces.

Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.

For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened.

12 So then, whatever you desire that others would do to and for you, even so do also to andfor them, for this is (sums up) the Law and the Prophets.

13 Enter through the narrow gate;

15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you dressed as sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves.

20 Therefore, you will fully know them by their fruits.

As we were talking about these verses, here are some things I found..any additions in your mind?

  1. Jesus has specific instructions on how to live with one another:
  • do not judge, criticize, condemn others
  • Do not give that which is holy (the sacred thing) to the dogs, and do not throw your pearls before hogs, lest they trample upon them with their feet and turn and tear you in pieces.
  • whatever you desire that others would do to and for you, even so  do to and or them : This is the Law and the Prophets
  • beware of false prophets, know them by their fruits.
       2. Jesus has instructions on how to live before God:
  •  Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.
  •  For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened.
Now, verses 21-27 are some very famous verses…

21 Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven.

22 Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons in Your name and done many mighty works in Your name?

23 And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands].

24 So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them [obeying them] will be like a [p]sensible (prudent, practical, wise) man who built his house upon the rock.

25 And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

26 And everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them will be like a stupid (foolish) man who built his house upon the sand.

27 And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell—and great and complete was the fall of it.

Simply put, since we will be studying this in greater depth later, Jesus says not all will enter the KOH…right?

Those who will not enter KOH:

  1. you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands].
  2. everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them will be like a stupid (foolish) man who built his house upon the sand.
Those who will enter KOH:
  1. will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven.
  2. So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them [obeying them] will be like a sensible (prudent, practical, wise) man who built his house upon the rock.
We like to make these stories Sunday school fodder but Jesus was quite serious. Eternity serious.

Matthew 7:28 When Jesus had finished these sayings [the Sermon on the Mount], the crowds were astonished and overwhelmed with bewildered wonder at His teaching,

29 For He was teaching as One Who had [and was] authority, and not as [did] the scribes.

I marvel at these words. I can imagine the quiet that fell over the crowds. The hush..then the murmur…the wide eyes…I also can imagine the little children clamoring to get on His lap. I sure would have wanted to sit on His lap. :)

Pray on, beloved. Pray on…
