Blessed are the…

Good morning, beloved!

That picture is captivating! It is as if heaven is touching earth..which He did. I love visual reminders! With the guidance of my PUP (Precept upon Precept study) of Sermon on the Mount, we are going to be searching the Scriptures as to what it means to inherit the earth today.

Let’s start by looking through the Psalm 37. “In the OT, the land of Israel represented to the people hope and blessing from God.”(Sermon on the Mount, p.34) So lets go through and understand who will inherit the earth.  Here’s a link to the entire Psalm 37. :)

For evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait and hope and look for the Lord [in the end] shall inherit the earth.

11 But the meek [in the end] shall inherit the earth and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. Sound familiar? Jesus quoted this in Matthew 5:5. :) 

22 For such as are blessed of God shall [in the end] inherit the earth, but they that are cursed of Him shall be cut off.

29 [Then] the [consistently] righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever.

34 Wait for and expect the Lord and keep and heed His way, and He will exalt you to inherit the land; [in the end] when the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.

Now lets go to Revelation (yup, Revelation) 5:8-10:

And when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders [of the heavenly Sanhedrin] prostrated themselves before the Lamb. Each was holding a harp (lute or guitar), and they had golden bowls full of incense (fragrant spices and gums for burning), which are the prayers of God’s people (the saints).

And [now] they sing a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the scroll and to break the seals that are on it, for You were slain (sacrificed), and with Your blood You purchased men unto God from every tribe and language and people and nation.

10 And You have made them a kingdom (royal race) and priests to our God, and they shall reign [as kings] over the earth!

When you have a minute, open that Bible to Revelation and read this chapter..:) ha! Imagine this! When I worship the Lord, sometimes I imagine this scene in my mind. When I pray, I am honored to think that my prayers could be a part of these golden bowls! Amen! You too! Jesus is worthy to break the seals, take the scroll for He was sacrificed and His blood purchased for all men, ALL men redemption! :) WOOHOO!!

Yet, what we are studying is that Jesus has made us a kingdom, a royal race, priests (those who shall inherit the earth!) and they shall…reign! How about it!

Of course there is another side, those who shall not…

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality,

10 Nor cheats (swindlers and thieves), nor greedy graspers, nor drunkards, nor foulmouthed revilers and slanderers, nor extortioners and robbers will inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God.

11 And such some of you were [once]. But you were washed clean (purified by a complete atonement for sin and made free from the guilt of sin), and you were consecrated (set apart, hallowed), and you were justified [pronounced righteous, by trusting] in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the [Holy] Spirit of our God.

So this verb, here, in verse 11, were. :) Gotta love that verb. Amplified version gives it away..really. And such some of you were ONCE. Not continuing.  And NOW, comes the BUT (Mom, we aren’t supposed to say that word..just kidding..) you were (only have to be washed once :) ) set free, purified, made free from the guilt of sin! So for goodness’ sake to go back and wallow in it (my word’s not Paul’s tho he does say that in another place..) would be a travesty! Don’t do it.

You were justified, or in other words, for those who, like me, need help, pronounced righteous by trusting.  You know what strikes me about all of this? It had nothing to do with my goodness, my greatness, anything about me. It was all about God and me? I need to extend trust out..I needed to hold my little hand out and God swept in and carried me away.

Pray on, beloved. Pray on..

Poor in spirit…

Good morning, beloved of God,

A quiet morning with little birds,  it is good to be up early before all the craziness of life. We live by train tracks and so I, most of the time, don’t even “hear” the trains going by. In a morning like this, when I  hear the worship of God’s creation…oh, I hear it alright.

Today’s verse from BibleGateway…“The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]! For the Chief Musician; with my stringed instruments.” Habakkuk 3:19 AMP

Before I carry on, I want to let you know about a book that is transforming my financial life and her blog. Her name is Kelly Hancock and her book is called, Saving Savvy and her blog/website is www.faithfulprovisions.com. She has turned my thinking upside down and I am very grateful. I listened to her book in the car and now my eldest is shopping with me and my younger ones are clipping coupons and getting rid of expired coupons…yet all to gear to a life that can be lived generously. And I love that. She doesn’t overwhelm with information. She carefully adds new information..gives solid facts, reviews at the end of each chapter, has wonderful stories to illustrate her points…well, we’ve been already saving it has just been three weeks. Thank You, Lord.

I am a little amused with myself that I choose today to bring up that book with the subject of today’s study…but well, that is the book I have worked through and I did just finish it…you will find this does mean something a little different tho…;)

So today we are back in Matthew 5 focusing in on verse 3

Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the poor in spirit (the humble, who rate themselves insignificant), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven!

Poor: lacking in anything, as respects their spirit, destitute of wealth of learning and intellectual culture which the schools afford (men of this class most readily give themselves up to Christ‘s teaching and proved themselves fitted to lay hold of the heavenly treasure)

The root word here means to crouch (ptosso) or to be terrified or to descend and fall to a prostrate place…

in spirit: the sentient element in man, that by which he perceives, reflects, feels, desires, Mat 5:3;

The root word here means to breathe, to blow of the wind…

“Poor in spirit simply means to be a beggar, a pauper in spirit, to know that you have nothing to offer. It is a lowliness which is the opposite of pride.” (Precept Ministries, Sermon on The Mount, p. 12)

Can I get an amen? How often to we realize how little we have and yet that is how God wants us. He wants to be close and near and hold us. Let’s look at some other verses…

Psalm34:18 The Lord is close to those who are of a broken heart and saves such as are crushed with sorrow for sin and are humbly and thoroughly penitent.

Psalm 51: 17 My sacrifice [the sacrifice acceptable] to God is a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart [broken down with sorrow for sin and humbly and thoroughly penitent], such, O God, You will not despise.

Isaiah 57: 15 For thus says the high and lofty One—He Who inhabits eternity, Whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, but with him also who is of a thoroughly penitent and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the thoroughly penitent [bruised with sorrow for sin].

Isaiah 66: 1Thus says the Lord: Heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool. What kind of house would you build for Me? And what kind can be My resting-place?

For all these things My hand has made, and so all these things have come into being [by and for Me], says the Lord. But this is the man to whom I will look and have regard: he who is humble and of a broken or wounded spirit, and who trembles at My word and reveres My commands.

Anyone need to hear that today? We started singing this yesterday..actually my son just started singing this out of the blue and I’ve sung it ever since. :) Enjoy.

Well, beloved, thank you for reading this morning. I need to get moving. I will pick up again tomorrow morning.

Pray on. Pray on!

BLESS…

Good morning, beloved,

June 6….A day to give me pause. I remember. I remember bravery. When I opened Commons this morning, this was the picture that greeted me…courage in the face of inexplicable horror.  Our military willing to go into the line of fire for our freedom…have you prayed for our military today?  I found this prayer on here:

  • wonderful way to pray for a soldier is “five blessings”: Think of the word BLESS, and it will help you cover his or her life with prayer.
    • The B stands for BODY. For example, you might pray for physical protection, safety and health.
    • The L stands for LABOR, pray for them to do their job well, with skill and wisdom.
    • The E stands for EMOTIONAL—pray for their emotional health.
    • The S stands for SOCIAL—pray for their marriage, the parent-child relationship (deployments are hard on marriages & with parents away for months; the children can feel distant or abandoned and have trouble understanding why dad or mom isn’t there.) Pray for God to fill the gaps of the love needed with His love while the parent is away.
    • And the last S stands for SPIRITUAL—pray for them to know God, put their trust in God, and experience His unfailing love for them even in the great difficulties they face in a war zone, for spiritual renewal for our troops, for peace in Iraq and Afghanistan—and for all of the soldiers to come home safely to their families.

Think what could happen if every family, every church in America prayed for our soldiers, for victory and peace in Iraq and for them to return safely to their families and jobs.

Well, as we dive into week two of our study on Sermon on the Mount we open with Psalm 119:116 Uphold me according to Your promise, that I may live; and let me not be put to shame in my hope! Lord, guide us, direct us and may we bless as we learn about blessing today.

So, having Matthew 5:1-12 in front of us…

5 Seeing the crowds, He went up on the mountain; and when He was seated, His disciples came to Him.

Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:

Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the poor in spirit (the humble, who rate themselves insignificant), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven!

Blessed and enviably happy [with a happiness produced by the experience of God’s favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His matchless grace] are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted!

Blessed (happy, blithesome, joyous, spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the meek (the mild, patient, long-suffering), for they shall inherit the earth!

Blessed and fortunate and happy and spiritually prosperous (in that state in which the born-again child of God enjoys His favor and salvation) are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God), for they shall be completely satisfied!

Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy!

Blessed (happy, enviably fortunate, and spiritually prosperous—possessing the happiness produced by the experience of God’s favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His grace, regardless of their outward conditions) are the pure in heart, for they shall see God!

Blessed (enjoying enviable happiness, spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the makers andmaintainers of peace, for they shall be called the sons of God!

10 Blessed and happy and enviably fortunate and spiritually prosperous (in the state in which the born-again child of God enjoys and finds satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of his outward conditions) are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake (for being and doing right), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven!

11 Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of your outward conditions) are you when people revile you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil things against you falsely on My account.

12 Be glad and supremely joyful, for your reward in heaven is great (strong and intense), for in this same way people persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Let’s look at the word Blessed first and the Amplified version does a rock solid job of defining it 11 times for us. LOL. So if you didn’t get it one time….;)

(happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of your outward conditions) In the blb.org… In the beatitudes the Lord indicates not only the characters that are “blessed,” but the nature of that which is the highest good.

So, let’s look at when and how the blessing is received..

  1. Is for the poor in spirit, the humble, those who rate themselves insignificant…theirs is the KOH
  2. Check out this one…blessed AND enviably happy(with a happiness produced by the experience of God’s favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His matchless grace)!..are those who mourn..they WILL be comforted
  3. Is for the  meek, mild, patient, long-suffering…they WILL inherit the earth
  4. Check out this on..blessed and happy and enviably fortunate and spiritually prosperous(in that state in which the born-again child of God enjoys His favor and salvation) I love Jesus…are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness…they will be COMPLETELY satisfied.  (I love all the ands…)
  5. Is for merciful…they will obtain mercy.
  6. Is for the pure in heart…they will SEE God!
  7. Is for the makers and maintainers of peace…they will be called the sons of God
  8. Check this out…Blessed and happy and enviably fortunate and spiritually prosperous …persecuted for righteousness’ sake…theirs is the KOH
  9. Is for YOU (well, they all are…)…when people revile you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil things against you falsely on My account..
  10. Also…be glad and supremely joyful… persecution..just like the prophets.

We are going to look at this in more detail tomorrow…pray on. Pray on…Be encouraged.

Pit No. 3 of the Mining Company of Escarpelle was a colliery consists of a single well located in Flers-en-Escrebieux (Pont-de-la-Deûle), North, Nord-Pas de Calais, France. by JÄNNICK Jérémy

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…

Do not and but…


Landscape of Castagniccia in Corsica. by azezu

Good morning, beloved of God,

So, yesterday was our catch up day after a week at Rush. Cleaning, laundry..a good day of getting things done. With all the neurological issues at our homestead (LOL), we have decided to remove all harmful chemicals out of our house. And while that sounds all well and good and admirable, getting laundry, umm, clean with three boys and a tomboy girl, can be challenging..so I have had to start pre-treating stains, soaking clothes..yet for children who think socks are another shoe for the great outdoors…

Last night we went to the Hymn Sing at Moody Bible Institute with our children. A friend told me about it and I’m so glad she did..we have made a concerted effort to begin teaching the children about hymns and their origins and to hear my boys (Ella was falling asleep)belting out the hymns last night brought me such joy in the moment. I cannot speak to the tomorrows or yesterdays but the moment was brilliant. I held my hands in worship as we sang “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name“. The right way. Just sayin’.

Well, let’s dive back into the Sermon on the Mount and we find ourselves in Matthew 6.

We are looking for all the “do not..” and “buts..” beginning in verse 19…here we go with the “do nots..”

19 Do not gather and heap up and store up for yourselves treasures on earth…

20….where thieves do not break through and steal;

25 …stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on.

26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them.

31 Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear?

34 So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.

Paysage by moi

Now for the “buts”…

20 But gather and heap up and store for yourselves treasures in heaven…

23 But if your eye is unsound, your whole body will be full of darkness.

30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith?

33 But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.

How beautiful is this teaching? This hope…

Do not hoard. Do not worry. Do not worry. Do not worry. Do not worry. (Seems to be a bit of repetition…)

The treasures of heaven are so much more worthy. He will clothe you. Seek first His kingdom and all else will be given to you…such hope. Such promise. What does this mean to you? To me, it means as we struggle financially, working through medical issues and the seen sometimes feels scary I can never keep my hope in what is seen. Rather, my hope must always be found in God. Singing aloud. Keeping His Word in front of me . Do not worry.

The medical bills roll in. Yet, we are nowhere near done with all the tests or doctors’ visits or therapist. The fear gets a little higher. My eyes cannot look to what is seen! He will clothe us. He will take care of our needs. Seek first His kingdom, Cara! We will keep doing His way and being right…not perfectly..last night singing with the family instead of just staying home and having the kids beg to play Wii or watch a movie..So much more significant. So grateful. So thankful.

And I make my lists of what I’m thankful for..I realized last night..this past week, I had gotten out of the habit! Bugger! How quickly I get out of the habit! How about you?

Well, I need to get moving…Ella has speech today…and I have more laundry to soak. ;)

Pray on. Do not worry. Do not compare. Lift your eyes to Jesus. Do not look to what is seen but keep your eyes on Jesus.

No, not one

Good morning beloved,

A new, fresh morning..it is not quiet here this morning, despite my early rising and quiet attempts..I had a Luke waiting for me downstairs, I take Joshua down to Rush Hospital today for an MRI and a visit to the neurosurgeon so he is up as well eating early as he can’t have food 2 hours before the test. Then, Noah got up. Now the dogs came rushing in …yes, the morning chaos has been rushing in. A whirlwind of life swirling about me. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Love coming to life. To my purposes, to meet with God, to hear His voice though, ear buds become a necessary vice.

John 17:17  Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth.

Oh, but finding ear buds! Good grief, sometimes finding a chance to get time away with my Lord is so hard..which is why getting up really early is so very important to me and even than that doesn’t get me the time.

Well, come with me as I start a study in the Sermon on the Mount…and I look through His Words.  Yet, we need a context of where the sermon took place and to do that we look back through the Word. :) And here we go!

Matthew 4:12-13

12 Now when Jesus heard that John had been arrested and put in prison, He withdrew into Galilee.

13 And leaving Nazareth, He went and dwelt in Capernaum by the sea, in the country of Zebulun and Naphtali—

Map of Galilee and Northern Israel by Bible History online

Matthew 4:

23 And He went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news (Gospel) of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every weakness and infirmity among the people.

24 So the report of Him spread throughout all Syria, and they brought Him all who were sick, those afflicted with various diseases and torments, those under the power of demons, and epileptics, and paralyzed people, and He healed them.

25 And great crowds joined and accompanied Him about, coming from Galilee and Decapolis [the district of the ten cities east of the Sea of Galilee] and Jerusalem and Judea and from the other [the east] side of the Jordan.

Matthew 5: 1 Seeing the crowds, He went up on the mountain; and when He was seated, His disciples came to Him.

Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying

Some interesting things come to me, do they come to you? Look…He saw the crowds so He…

  1. went up on the MOUNTAIN! Not a hill, not a mount…:)
  2. The disciples came to Him. How about the crowds…well, lets see…

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.

Looks like the crowds showed up by the end of His teaching. ;)

Take some time today to read the Sermon on the Mount with me. I’ll be reading it today. Matthew 5-7.

Pray on, beloved. Pray on…
