Revolutionary Papers: June 28, 2019 When you can’t get your Inheritance. I’m not sure about you but I’m someone that needs answers. I have to know, there’s no getting around it. And once I think that I know a thing, I have to be sure that it works practically. This can be quite a challenge… Continue reading Revolutionary Papers: July 1, 2019

Living by Faith part 1

George Mueller of Bristol After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

The Inheritance of the Meek Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5 So we understand that meekness is not a submissive attitude that is easily imposed on. Rather, it is to demonstrate power without undue harshness. Quite a difference there. Christ’s promise to those that are meek is incredible; they… Continue reading Revolutionary Papers: June 28, 2019

The Meekness Conspiracy Blessed are the meek for they will inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5 One of the very best things to me about Scripture is it’s limitless depth. When you get to the point of presuming that you have mastered a section, scripture has a way of quickly humbling you. Take this single verse from the Beatitudes, it has been translated so improperly that it beggars belief. It’s seriously almost offensive, we have… Continue reading Revolutionary Papers: June 27, 2019

Blessed are those mourning for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4 As was covered yesterday, this statement from the Beatitudes refers not solely to the condition of mourning as we perceive it in the English language but to those who grieve over a lost hope. In a way the English applies as in the death… Continue reading Revolutionary Papers: June 26, 2019

Blessed are those mourning for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4 The death, burial and resurrection of hope. The Beatitudes begin and end with the Kingdom of God, it bookends them so that we will understand the context that they are applied in. This is important to understand as the concept of the Kingdom is… Continue reading Revolutionary Papers: June 25, 2019

Blessed (empowered to prosper) are the poor in the spiritual realm: for theirs is the Kingdom of the Heavens. Matthew 5:3 First steps are important. They are even more important when they are viewed in context with the whole plot. We have lost this in the West. You can blame it on many things but… Continue reading Revolutionary Papers: June 24, 2019

Blessed (empowered to prosper) are the poor in the spiritual realm: for theirs is the Kingdom of God. Matthew 5:3 Notice first that Christ was not saying that poverty was a blessing. I’ve been poor and I’ve had money; having money is better. Unjust poverty is violence, as Gandhi stated; it’s a terrible assault on… Continue reading Revolutionary Papers: June 23, 2019

On the material plane and spirit. Μακάριοι οἱ πτωχοὶ τῷ πνεύματι , Ὅτιαὐτῶν ἐστιν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν . Blessed are the poor in the spirit for theirs is the kingdom of the heavens. Almost all translations except for the Berean render the first part of this verse, “Blessed are the poor in Spirit…”. This is due to the fact that no matter how skilled you are… Continue reading Revolutionary Papers: April 20, 2019

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:3 Part 1. During my study time over the years I am ashamed to say that I never bothered to exegete the Beatitudes. I knew them and so due to that and their apparent simplicity, I never bothered to study them… Continue reading Revolutionary Papers: April 19, 2019
