Reverence: Christ’s Invitation. Date 11-29-21

Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourself in abundance. Incline your ear and come to Me. Listen, that you may live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, according to the faithful mercies shown to David. Behold, I have made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples. Behold, you will call a nation you do not know, and a nation which knows you not will run to you, because of the Lord your God, even the Holy One of Israel; for He has glorified you. Isaiah 55:1-7

What did Jesus teach to be saved. Part 1

Many people have said many things about what Jesus taught. Many people have added to the list of what Jesus taught, or they have added words to the text to fit their own theology. This article is only what Jesus taught about salvation, life and His Kingdom, and forgiveness by Christ.

Jesus said, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” Matthew 4:17

At this time Jesus was walking by the sea of Galilee. Jesus was teaching in the Galilee region. Jesus was healing every kind of diseases, every kind of sickness, word of Jesus traveled through all Syria; and they brought to Him all who were ill, taken with various diseases, and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and He healed them. (All of them). Great multitudes followed Him from Galilee, Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea and from beyond the Jordan. When He saw the multitudes, He went up on the mountain; and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. Jesus began to speak. And opening His mouth He began to teach them. (through healing them) Multitude, means there was a number that could be put to them. There were many different countries represented in this throng of people. Regardless of where they were from or what they spoke, Jesus understood them and was personal with each one as He healed them. What better way is there to create a following and believers than to do something personal in regard to a life changing ways of healing. Jesus began to teach them. By His Healing Them.

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3 Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4 Blessed are the gentle, for they inherit the earth. Matthew5:5 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Matthew5:6 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Matthew 5:9 Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:10 Blessed are you when men cast insults at you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, on account of Me. Matthew 5:11

Rejoice, and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Matthew 5:12

You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt has become tasteless, how will it be made salty again? It is good for nothing any more, except to be throne out and trampled under foot by man. Matthew 5:13-14

You are the light of the world, a city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do men light a lamp, and put it under the peck-measure, but on a lamp stand and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father in heaven. Jesus did not come to abolish the law or the Prophets. Matthew 8:15-16

Do not think that I came to abolish the Law, or the Prophets: I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass away from the law, until all is accomplished. Whoever then annuls one of these commandments, and so teaches others, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:17-19

Christ wants you to know that a believer will have a certain amount of influence as he/she goes about ones daily life, if you let your light shine, and if you show how Christ has effected your life, and your outlook of life.

For I say to you, that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. 5:20

The ten commandments given by God to Moses. Exodus 20, Deuteronomy 5 The first covenant.

What is the difference between the law and the faith in Jesus Christ? Jesus bridges the gap between the old and the new covenant. Jesus guards the old covenant because some His people still practices it, and Christ teaches the new covenant. At some point there will only be one covenant, all religions will come to an end, and at the end it will be, Christ alone, by faith, in Christ. At the end of this world as we know it, no faith in Christ, ones lot will be with satan, in the pit of hell, where there is gnashing of teeth and eternal torment, either eternal life with Christ in heaven, or eternal punishment with satan in hell. These are the only two options.

The Ten Commandments

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing loving kindness, to thousands, to those who love Me and keep my commandments.
  3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in-vain, for the Lord will not leave him unpunished who takes his name in vain.
  4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work. But, the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or female servants or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you. For six days the lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.
  5. Honor your father and mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.
  6. You shall not commit murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house, you shall not covet you neighbors wife, or his male servant or his female servant or his Ox, or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

In the law as God gave it to Israel coming out of Egypt, God made it to be obedience to Him, external. when they committed sin they could compare their actions and words to God’s law and immediately know that they had sinned. From the beginning of the Exodus, they did not look at God in any positive light. They rejected Him at every corner. The only way they ever acknowledged their sin is when God would send a plague, an enemy, or sickness. Then Israel would repent and acknowledge God, but soon after they were back to doing the same thing over and over. Under Christ it is an internal work. It changes the believer in side out. One reason is that under Abraham, it was the inheritance of the land, not so much of a personal faith in God. They went after wood, stone, molten images for their Gods. When the Law was given in the wilderness God did set up the external control of His people. If you obey my word, there would be blessings. If you do not obey My words and the Law, you will have curses. Many times it seemed to take God a long time to bring sin to justice. What Israel had to work with after a four hundred years absence of God, He returns, and takes them away of slavery and the multitude of God’s that the Egyptians had. The 12 plagues of Egypt had to do with a different God for each plague. Each plague God showed them that He was in control of the plagues, and He is greater than any plague or magician.

In New Testament Belief, sin and everything is internal, Christ is the personal and loving savior that is long suffering, and patient, for people to come to Him. Pressure from sin builds up in the believer, until forgiveness is asked for and received. No public condemnation, it is between you and the Lord Jesus Christ. Christs Forgiveness is given immediately.
God and Christ are the only righteous ones that can define sin, and then forgive it.

Mans spirit can tear people down, but the Spirit of Christ builds up a poor spirit: Christ was comforted by God through His trials before men, floggings, men mocking and hitting him, a speer being poked in His side, so He will build the Spirit of those who mourn over loss: The gentle are looked at as being weak, but Christ in his gentleness will build them up and give them rest: to those who thirst after God and Christ in righteousness, His presence and word will satisfy them: to those who help other people because of their mercy, they too shall receive mercy from Christ: for the person who has no malice, bitterness, and has a clear mind about God and Christ, they shall see God: To those people who are persecuted for there faith, people that are killed because of Christ’s name, people jailed, or lose their jobs because of their faith, theirs is the Kingdom of God: Christ will bless you when men cast insults at you, and say evil and terrible words at you on account of Christ: rejoice for He will bless you: be the salt of the earth, salt that has no taste is worthless: do not hide your faith, it will be a beacon to other people who see it: Christ did not come to do away with the law, or the ten commandments, He came to fulfill the law: it means that Christ made the new and old testament complete and whole: Christ completed and made everything complete in the time He spent on this earth. He accomplished everything that God sent Him to do. The rest comes from Christ in Heaven to those who call on His name. Matthew 5:1-20

God and Christ are the only righteous ones that can define sin, and then forgive it. You have heard that the ancients were told, you shall not commit murder, and who ever commits murder shall be liable to the court. But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever shall say to his brother “Raca” shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever shall say, you fool, shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell. Matthew 5:21-22

If therefore you are presenting your offering at the alter, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering before the alter; and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, then come and present your offering. Make friends quickly with your opponent at law while you are with him on the way, in order that your opponent may not deliver you to the judge, and the judge to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. Truly I say to you, you shall not come out of there until you have paid up the last cent. Matthew 5:23-26

You have heard that it was said, “You shall not Commit Adultery Matthew 5:27 But I say to you, that everyone who looks on a woman to lust for her has committed adultery already in his heart. And if your right eye makes you stumble , tear it out, and throw it from you; for it is better for you that one of the parts of your body perish, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off, and throw it from you; for it is better for you that one of the parts of your body perish, than for your whole body to go into hell. 5:28-30

And it was said, Who ever sends his wife away, let him give her a certificate of divorce. But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the cause of unchastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery. Matthew 5:31-32

Again you have heard that the ancients were told, you shall not make false vows, but shall fulfill your vows to the Lord. But I say to you, make no oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, or by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. Nor shall you make an oath by your head,for you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your statement be, yes, yes or no, no; and anything beyond these is of evil Matthew 5:33-37

You have heard that it was said, and eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. But I say to you, do not resist him who is evil; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. Matthew 5:38-39

And if he wants to sue you, and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. And whoever shall force you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you, Matthew 5:40-42

You have heard that it was said, you shall love your neighbor and hate you enemy 5:43 But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you in order that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? do not even the tax gatherers do the same? And if you greet your brothers only, what do you do more than others? Do not the gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:45-48

There is one more item that goes along with faith. Faith is putting your trust in the Lord Jesus. That item is prayer, prayer helps the believer to internalize what Christ teaches. You start by praying for your self, but it doesn’t take long for you to start praying for other people. Prayer is the most important activity one can do with their faith.

May your walk with Him, bless Him, but He would bless you for your obedience, far more.
