Light of the Body

“The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matthew 6:22-23)
The eyes give our body a way to see things around us. The way you look at things show who you are and what you have inside of you. Our eyes are connected to our heart. The heart dictates what you see! The spirit inside of you “lights” and shows you things with the “light’ that is inside of you. Christ is saying that if the way you look is evil – then your entire body is evil. “If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!”

What is YOUR Price?

Today everything in the world has a price, from our birth to our death everything has a value. Even the Word of God has been twisted and manipulated for profit. The True Word that was given to bring Life and reveal the true purpose of a person – completely disregarded because it brings no profit in this world. But the Word of God is immensely profitable in the Heavenly. God made us to be built into one structure, to be part of the New Jerusalem, to be placed in it as PRECIOUS stones. Only as partakers of God’s will can we truly profit, in love, joy, peace, righteousness, holiness… profit that cannot be labeled with a dollar sign. The profit of Eternal Life.
“You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood…” 1Peter 2:5

New Way of Life

“No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.” (Matthew 9:16-17 KJV)
This was Christ’s answer to a question that was asked towards Him, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?” (Matthew 9:14) The question was really about why don’t you do things the old way. Christ’s answer showed that this is a new way of life and you cannot mix the old and the new. If you try to understand and comprehend what Christ is teaching by using the old ways, by the teachings of the old (whether to fast or not, whether to eat or not eat, whether to wash hands or not, etc.) – you will ruin yourselves. You cannot patch what you used to do with the new! Patch-work of the old with the new creates an even bigger problem, because it will end up in complete shipwreck and destruction! It’s important to completely get rid of the old and only learn the new!

Judgment | Should you judge yourself ?

We have received the Spirit of God Himself, the Spirit of love. Love does not place itself above others, is long suffering, meek, kind, love does not judge. God does not judge. God has removed all guilt. If there is judgement, there’s no way you are going to figure anything out. This judgement is from the law.

High Priest of good things to come

“But Christ being come an high priest of good things to COME, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” Hebrews 9:11-12
Christ came from the FUTURE, and came with a more perfect tabernacle, which is not a building made with hands. The real tabernacle of the future is God with His people. That was God’s PLAN from the very beginning. Our part is to serve God by participating in His plan, which gives us a FUTURE! This future cannot compare to anything here on earth!

Promise to God

Baptism is a promise to God. A simple decision to give up one world for another. This world is sensual, attractive, and passing. Life in this world consists of nothing but empty vanity that in the end only leaves you with memories of the past – at most. The other world is Heavenly and eternal – Life in Christ. It is True Life, that is blissful and joyous and in the end it brings only more joy and peace and Eternal Life in Heaven. The promise is to COMPLETELY give up the former life in this earthly, sensual world, and to become a servant of God in the Heavenly. “Baptism – not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God” – 1 Peter 3:21

Tree of Life

Jesus Christ is the Tree of Life, He is the healing of the nations; that same tree that is seen in the first chapters of Genesis, and also the tree that is mentioned in Revelations. What does it mean to eat from this tree? What is the affect? Where can we find it? Once we find it and eat of it’s pleasant fruits, then we will know what it means to Live!

Spiritual Food

Blessed are the hungry (Matt. 5:6, Luke 6:21). We need to be hungry for real food. Just like in the physical, when a person is truly hungry he will not look for sugar or candy, but food with substance, that can fill and sustain the person. Same in the spiritual, real, filling food is not the fast and overwhelming flow of information that surrounds us in this world. Real food is the pure Word of God, the True teaching that Christ brought. Only the Pure Word can satisfy and fill the heart of a person. This is the food that we need to be hungry for, the food that is heavenly. Set your mind on things above! (Colossians 3:2)

Signs of a new heart

“A NEW heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put My spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and ye shall keep My judgements, and do them…and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God…Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall loath yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.” Ezekiel 36:26-30
We’ve all read about the new heart, but today I would like to underscore the SIGNS of a NEW heart. “I will cause you to walk in My statutes…” The Spirit (not the doing of your own soul) will cause you to obey His statutes. So the natural desire to do Truth is one of the signs of a new heart. Also, you will loath yourself in your own sight, in other words, you will have feelings against your old self before you had a new heart, how you used to be. The Israelites were called out of Egypt, out of bondage and oppression, and yet – once they left – most of them wanted to go back. Why is that? This is an image for us today. A person who was taken out of sin, was freed from sin – and then desires to go back? Why does that happen?

Needy Heart

“Blessed are the PURE in heart: for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8
Only those with a pure heart shall see God! How do we intend to see God? How many people actually seek to have a pure heart? People seek all kinds of things, but no one seeks a clean heart UNLESS God starts showing you that your heart is not clean. If you begin to see that your heart is not clean and is not pure, that means God is showing you this. Without seeing who you really are, you will never see God! Without becoming needy, you will never seek to fill that need.
