Matthew — introduction
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW
In the “Sermon on the Mount” the theme of righteousness is prominent, and even at this early stage of the ministry the note of opposition is struck between Jesus and the Pharisees, who are designated as “the hypocrites” (Mt 6:2, 5, 16). The righteousness of his disciples must surpass that of the scribes and Pharisees; otherwise, in spite of their alleged following of Jesus, they will not enter into the kingdom of heaven (Mt 5:20). Righteousness means doing the will of the heavenly Father (Mt 7:21), and his will is proclaimed in a manner that is startling to all who have identified it with the law of Moses. The antitheses of the Sermon (Mt 5:21–48) both accept (Mt 5:21–30, 43–48) and reject (Mt 5:31–42) elements of that law, and in the former case the understanding of the law’s demands is deepened and extended. The antitheses are the best commentary on the meaning of Jesus’ claim that he has come not to abolish but to fulfill the law (Mt 5:17). What is meant by fulfillment of the law is not the demand to keep it exactly as it stood before the coming of Jesus, but rather his bringing the law to be a lasting expression of the will of God, and in that fulfillment there is much that will pass away. Should this appear contradictory to his saying that “until heaven and earth pass away” not even the smallest part of the law will pass (Mt 5:18), that time of fulfillment is not the dissolution of the universe but the coming of the new age, which will occur with Jesus’ death and resurrection. While righteousness in the new age will continue to mean conduct that is in accordance with the law, it will be conduct in accordance with the law as expounded and interpreted by Jesus (cf. Mt 28:20, “…all that I have commanded you”).
Though Jesus speaks harshly about the Pharisees in the Sermon, his judgment is not solely a condemnation of them. The Pharisees are portrayed as a negative example for his disciples, and his condemnation of those who claim to belong to him while disobeying his word is no less severe (Mt 7:21–23, 26–27).
Readings from the Book of Truth
Money, and too much of it, corrupts the soul
21 August 2011 @ 11:00pm
My dearly beloved daughter, I visit you tonight as the world begins to erupt in continued violence, as nation after nation bombard each other to seek power and glory. Pray for all those souls who will perish in this violence so they can find favour in My Father’s Kingdom.
My daughter, the world will now undergo the changes foretold, to cleanse them so that man can be made worthy of My Promise. They will continue to be allowed to be stripped bare of material things by those greedy people responsible for their sudden demise.
As these trials intensify these children will be free of the shackles, which bind them to the empty promises of Satan, he who seduces the wealthy, by promising them even more, will now continue to parade the obscenity of ostentatious vulgarity, for all the world to see.
He will do this so that My children will not only envy the rich and famous, but will do everything they can to imitate them. By drawing My children into this nest, where the trappings of significant wealth will appear to be an important goal to aim for, he will succeed in taking them away from the Truth.
Once bare and naked, I will clothe you again, children, only this time it will be a cloak of armour designed to protect you from the wickedness of evil men. Once armoured, you will be ready to enter the world again with a different view of life. A life when love for your neighbour counts as being your number one goal. When you show love to one another you prove your genuine love for Me.
This facade of wealth and riches, which very few of My children in the world have access to, is only that – a front, for there is no substance behind it. You will be taunted to seek out similar wealth when the deceiver convinces you that you must aspire to great riches and fame. The Truth is that while you are busy chasing empty and meaningless desires, you will be ignoring your duty to Me.
Never allow the parading of wealth and fame to seduce you, children, for know that money, and too much of it, corrupts the soul.Those who have so much money, where they are unlikely to be ever able to spend it in this life, must give it to those unfortunate people who have little to eat.Do this and you can save your soul. If you hunger after excesses, when you already have enough to feed and clothe a nation, then you will starve. The Food of Life is your humble acceptance, that love for one another is what I taught you. loving your neighbour means looking after those who have nothing.
Wake up and accept the Truth before it is too late for you. It is more difficult for those with immense material riches to find favour with My Father, unless you share with others. Remember this, to those who have little and who envy those who seem to have every material comfort they wish for, you too must be careful.
There is only one mansion you should try to gain access to and that is the mansion that awaits you in the New Paradise on Earth. Only those humble in heart, mind and soul will be given the key.
Your beloved Saviour
The signs will be given to all of you and miracles will take place
My dearly beloved daughter, let no man fail to recognise the changes, which will erupt throughout the world, for everything foretold in the Book of Revelation will take place. Many of these events will differ from the usual human interpretation of the secrets revealed to John the Evangelist. Yet they will make sense when you see them for what they are.
The elaborate, but carefully, sophisticated, plan by the antichrist has been cleverly couched with many people, including world renowned politicians, failing to spot this evil plan up to now.
Many centres have been set up in various nations where they plan the take-over of many countries. Their activities have, however, been curtailed because of the prayers of chosen souls and those of you who recite My Crusade Prayers.
Your prayers will always be heard in Heaven, so you must continue to pray fervently to mitigate the evil actions of the beast who will never win this battle for souls as his days are short.
My desire is not to frighten you but to prepare you. I now bequeath special powers and graces to all of you who adhere to My wishes to recite the Crusade Prayers. The signs will be given to all of you and miracles will take place.
My Power will surge through your veins as I carry you on My Path to salvage humanity.
