AFTER A BRIEF INTERPETATION
Chapter 1, Verse 3. The voice of one crying in the wilderness, “Make ready the way of the Lord, Make his paths strait”.
The voice of one crying is a voice calling the people to follow God but without the awareness of the way of deification. This voice established the baptism in the water. This baptism indicates the willingness of men to follow God, but, I repeat, without awareness of deification. Those days John the Baptist was calling the multitudes to adopt the teaching of repentance and baptism. Lord, like then and today, brought the voice of god to provide to human race the awareness of the spiritual evolution and rebirth; this will lead the men to become heirs of God coheirs of Christ and partners of God’s glory. I wish, today this voice, to have acceptance among us but not disregard because there is no other chance.
Chapter 1, Verse 6. John was clothed with camel’s hair and wore a leather belt around his waist and his diet was locust and wild honey.
John had a great love to God and he had no concern for necessary goods. I wish to all of us to have the same love to God, but the absolute wisdom, like a sourer eagle will lead us to climb the stairway of Jacob reaching to God’s throne. God does not ask such extremes from us, but He promises a hundredfold goods, spiritual and material, to use them all for the glory of God and the salvation of the world. John was valued as dedicated to God deprived everything (neither eating nor drinking) Jesus valued as dedicated to God (eating and drinking). The goods we have are not an impediment to relation with God, the use of them is what matters. Do we keep the material goods for personal benefit or for the general benefit? Everything has been given by God let’s use it for His glory.
Chapter 1, Verse 8. “I baptize you with water but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit”.
Today all Christians are baptized in the water but this does not ensures total rebirth neither a salvation nor living faith but a shadow one, because the deeds remain pagan and the healing of the body depend on the drugs. The baptism in the Holy Spirit by lay hands it appears and works by the people with fruits gifts with wisdom of God, directs the man to deification securing life, joy, humbleness and healthy spiritual body. For those who study and participate with the voice of god understand the meaning of it, because the Holy Spirit admonishes, evolves and reborn the man. Since someone attends the lessons of the spiritual meetings of the voice of god soon will receive the Holy Spirit and it will add gifts fruits and signs.
Chapter 1, Verse 9. In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
Really the Lord had need to be baptized in the water? Since he blessed and created the water, did the creator need the creation? For sure not but the spiritual level of that time was based on the baptism. So Lord has baptized for the scandal to be avoided for all those who willingly accept God. This is the first reason the second reason is to fulfill prophesy. “And the Holy Spirit descends in bodily form like a dove up on Him.
Chapter 1, Verse 11. And a voice came out of the heavens: “You are my beloved Son; in you I am well-pleased”.
Many men are preaching their own benignity. But it is different when God introduces you than others through various flatteries. For us (as voice of god) we do not strive to persuade no one. It is our principal not to introduce ourselves but let God to introduce us. This is the glory of God and God will open the gates of love everywhere and with love to over-throne the present evil world.
Chapter 1, Verse 12. Immediately the spirit impelled Him to go into the wilderness. 13. And He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts and the angels were ministering to him.
Lord’s temptations lasted 40 days. The duration of our temptations is according to our decision to defeat them. For the Israelites the journey to the Promised Land (on a straight line) supposed to take 40 days but it took them 40 years because of the unbelief and the various temptations. I wish our temptation not to exceed the three years, enough time for our devotion to do the will of God. Then it is sure the angels will come to serve us. The temptations will come and go but the decision to serve the voice of god and its objectives not to exceed the three years. The decision to serve God will eliminate the temptations because the angels and the voice of God will work within us reinforcing spiritually until the will of God becomes way of life. Believe it, the voice of god is bearer of his will and the creator of the kingdom of God on earth.
Chapter 1, Verse 14. Now after John had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God.
The gospel of the kingdom it is the only gospel which leads to deification and it is consisted by four phases. The first is: the undivided, all Christians are divided into dogmas with foolish spiritual conclusions; they divide and separate the people of God, even with terrible wars. For all those who participate with the voice of god divisions are accepted but with love and unity to enjoy life. Second phase, of the gospel of the kingdom is the consistency. Holy Father keep through Your name those who You gave Me that they may be one as We are. To succeed in this we first have to be united in vital issues and on these to improve ourselves. These are: a) Do not judge for not be judged. B) The unfeigned love. C) the commandments of God, all these will help us to have consistency. The third phase is the integrated gospel. In the bible says: for whoever shall keep the whole law and yet stumble in one he is guilty for all. All Christian’s churches have reject life through life but not us. First the wise Solomon said: For God made no death neither hath pleasure in the destruction of the living. For he created all things that they might be; and he made the nations of the earth; and there is no poison of destruction in them or kingdom of hell upon the earth. Justice is perpetual and immortal. Therefore God is with us. The fourth phase is the one that encompasses the previous three.
Chapter 1, Verse 15. And saying, “The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe in the gospel”.
For indeed the kingdom of God is within you and the violent take it by force. Violent is the obedient one he who obeys to the commandments of God and the voice of God. This is the man who will create the kingdom of God within. The kingdom of God is not eating and drinking but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. The time is fulfilled means that the Lord came and brought the data we need, therefore, the human race, by the obedience to Him, to establish the kingdom of God within. The establishment of the kingdom first will take place individually and then generally. According to the principles of the gospel, kingdom of God means, nothing put us in servitude (subjection) like anger ignorance of the word of God decay and last the death. These things and much more must abandon our lives and the creation of the kingdom will abolish devil and the power of death, death today is everywhere. The gospel did not exist before Christ but His word prophecies for it and this gospel will be conceived totally from the majority of men in the future century which started in 2000. The voice of god received from above the mandate to vivify the hearts of all the good-willing people who are scattered all over the planet.
Chapter 1, Verse 17.And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me and I will make you become fishers of men”. 18. Immediately they left their nets and follow Him. 19. Going on a little farther, He saw James the son of Zebedee and john his brother who were also in the boat mending the nets. 20. Immediately he called them and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants and went away to follow Him.
The spiritual beauty of Jesus, as well as the physical one (clean face and fiery spiritual look), made the disciples to follow him, because they saw a rich unprecedented spiritual treasure to shine. The intension (to follow Christ) first they receive it from John the Baptist, because previously they were john’s disciples. In another gospel is stated that Jesus is the son of God. This was He of whom I said He who comes after me is preferred before me, for he was before me. After such revelation and exhortation, what is left? It was the call by Christ. They didn’t go arbitrarily because of the noble emulation (respect) they had. The disciples accept the call with all the hesitation, like any other man, they might have to follow a stranger until to be proved who Jesus really was.
Chapter 1, Verse 18. Immediately they left their nets and follow Him.
The real children of Christ listen to His voice and follows Christ at the garden of olives and at the Calvary, striving for the glory of God and the salvation of the world. The real children of God do not postpone but practice every hour the laws of love. Postponement leads to the land of never.
Chapter 1, Verse 22. They were amazed at his teaching for he was teaching them as one having authority and not as the scribes.
The authority comes by the Holy Spirit. The man who has the Holy Spirit knows that his words are from the Father God. The preaching of scribes and Pharisees (hypocrites) is a repeated dry ritualism as corollary to occur spiritual tiredness (weariness) and a non evolvable spiritual progress. The teaching of the Holy Spirit fills us with life, joy; enthusiasm, spirit of evolution and this teaching revitalize the interest of the listeners. The real children of God know which teaching has the authority of life because it abides in them.
Chapter 1, Verse 23. Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit and he cried out. 24. Saying “What businesses do we have us with each other Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who You are-the Holy One of God”. 25. And Jesus rebuked him saying, “Be quiet and come out of him!” 26. Throwing him into convulsion the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and come out of him. 27. They were all amazed so that they debated among themselves saying, “What is this? Anew teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits and they obey Him”. 28. Immediately the news about him spread everywhere into all the surrounding district of Galilee.
Since the surrounding is governed by God’s merits then the unclean spirits have no room among them. When the environment is governed by ignorance, by fearfulness, by consternations of men’s commandments and by spiritual sciolism it is a natural consequence to transfer (inductively) demons to its people. We must know that in the environment we live we have a determinant role to our evolution and we have a big responsibility to those who are around us, because they, voluntary or involuntary are listening and admonished by us. The obedience to the word of God and our spiritual rebirth eliminates the wrong behavior and the appearance of evil to the surrounding.
Chapter 1, Verse 29. And immediately after they came out of the synagogue they came into the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John. 30. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was lying sick with a fever and immediately they spoke to Jesus about her. 31. And he came to her and raise her up taking her by the hand and the fever left her and she waited on them.
In a humorous way: This was the reason and Peter denied Jesus when he had the opportunity (because Jesus healed his mother-in-law)
Chapter 1, Verse 32. When evening came after the sun had set they began bringing to Him all who were ill and those who were demon possessed. 33. And the whole city had gathered at the door. 34. And he healed many who were ill with various diseases and cast out many demons; and he was not permitting the demons to speak because they knew who he was.
Since someone preaches the gospel of the kingdom has powers to release the weak brethren from various spiritual forms of evil that causes sickness to the body. Moreover Lord said: And these signs will follow those who believe. In My name they will cast out demons they will speak with new tongues, they will take up serpents and if they drink anything deadly it will be no means hurt them they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover. If we lacking of the above gifts and powers we must intensify our spiritual struggle to acquire all those signs and so to be insured that our faith is not a shadow one but a living one.
Chapter 1, Verse 35. In the early morning while it was still dark Jesus got up left the house and went to a seclude place and was praying there.
The hidden prayer moves the wheel of life the present and the future one. All of us must have the secret prayer top priority every day and to pray in a quiet place because in silence there is God.
Chapter 1, Verse 37. They found Him and said to Him, “Everyone is looking for You” 38. He said to them “Let us go somewhere else to the towns nearby so that I may preach there also, for that is what I came for” 39. And he went into their synagogue throughout all Galilee preaching and casting out the demons.
Today many supposedly reborn Christians do anything to proselytize the men and then to turn fanatic and possessed. Fortunately many of them understand the trap and turn away. Since one or many men will reborn and become the people of God then the multitudes will look for them, because they will be introduced by God, these are the real disciples of Christ. Jesus was teaching the gospel of the kingdom with dignity without judgment, reproof, requisition, entreaty and egoism. Jesus was telling: Whoever desires to come after Me. For two thousand years God is waiting the man, through his free will, to follow the living voice of the living God the voice of God. This is the voice that will evolve reborn and vivify the man.
Chapter 1, Verse 44. And he said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone but go show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded as a testimony to them”.
Many men because of the ego when they do something good they advertize it and do anything to have influence, on the contrary to the wisdom of Jesus who was minimizing His benevolent deeds but His Father discloses them until today. This is humbleness and wisdom of God. If we want God’s blessing we have to act accordingly. Lord said: Do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.
Chapter 2, Verse 5. And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven”.
When our faith is not strong to save us then God sends other brothers, with strong faith, to help us. In this case we have to trust them and cooperate with them to understand Christ and follow Him. There are many men although they seek for help when the help comes they behave with weakness and egoism, preferring to satisfy personal interests than to get the benefit of the present situation, it is natural for them to spend their life in smallness.
Chapter 2, Verse 7.”Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming who can forgive sins but God alone?”
Therefore the abolishment of the sin provides healing to our body. The healthy spirit abides in a healthy body, bright spirit in bright body. The first sin to be abolished is the ignorance of the word of God. Since the spirit of Christ becomes our spirit the tree of life will bloom again and its fruits will accompany our life. Indeed only God can save us from the sin by His sent, by His gospel, by His comforter.
Chapter 2, Verse 11. “I say to you get up pick up your pallet and go home”.
The spiritual level of the paralytic it was, lift up his bed and return home. Our spiritual level is to abandon our bed (sofa) and run for the kingdom of God conceiving and practicing His will.
Chapter 2, Verse 17. And hearing this Jesus said to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners”.
Every single man has need of Christ call; more or less we have fallen to sin. For some because of the sciolism and the ego who consider themselves innocent, till to prove the opposite, they neglect the call. Of course there are many others who realized that sin and the false way of living have destroyed their life. So for us it is wise to approach the throne of God and derive all the elements we need to liberate our selves. There is also the other side these who do the will of God and they have righteousness, for sure they are with God. But this is not the last step; there is also the level of son ship. Who makes His ministers a flame of fire....... priests and high priests according to the order of Melchizedek. But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever.
Chapter 2, Verse 18. John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting; and they came and said to Him, “Why do John’s disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast but your disciples do not fast?”
There are many who have adopted a spiritual teaching and they are unable to adopt another new one like the one that Jesus brought. For us God has given a new teaching. The spiritual world around us misread and misunderstands our teaching and demand from us to adopt its teaching .We hope one day they will see the difference between Christ of ritualism and Christ of liberty.
Chapter 2, Verse 19. And Jesus said to them, “While the bridegroom is with them the attendants of the bridegroom cannot fast, can they? So as long as they have the bridegroom with them they cannot fast.
Where the spirit of God there the freedom is. Where there is no God there is the Law, the treats, the fear, the fasting, the punishment. I wish to all men to discover the new teaching that can liberate them and their surrounding. It is wise to keep a distance with those merchants of the souls, whose the properties are: 1) Dogmatism. 2) Fanaticism. 3) Liar. 4) The teaching it is not from Christ. 5) They do not work for the kingdom on earth but in heaven. 6) They do not believe in the abolishment of the sin and the physical death. 7) they have a constant spiritual confusion.
Chapter 2, Verse 21. “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; otherwise the patch pulls away from it , the new from the old and a worse tear results”. 22. “No one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost and the skins as well; but one puts new wine into fresh wineskins”.
The old teaching is the one of the Pharisees (Old Testament). The new wine is the teaching of Christ (New Testament). Let’s be careful to whom we talk for the new teaching. For anyone who insist, people of the law, not to understand the mercy of Christ (New Testament)he has ego and the results are very limited.
Chapter 2, Verse 27. Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for Sabbath” 28. “So the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath”.
The Sabbath (Saturday) symbolizes the law which is inapplicable. Man symbolizes the mercy and the law of Christ which is much higher of the law of Sabbath. Our salvation depends on the mercy but not on the law of the Sabbath. The kingdom of God accepts with a sincere repentance the righteous and the robber. We must understand that man made Sabbath but not Sabbath made man. Law in front of love has no value. Love and do deeds of love.
Chapter 3, Verse 2. And they watched him whether he would heal him on the Sabbath day.
Many are those who are observing for the reason to criticize others. Many will have the motive to criticize us, but we do not care. Let’s practice the will of God and let’s neglect their accusations. Moreover we do not share the wisdom of God in those who watch us, but in those who work for God in progress and evolution.
Chapter 3, Verse 6. And the Pharisees went forth and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
Jealousy and fanaticism lead the man to think how to eliminate and perish anyone who does not truckle with them. The fanatics are those who took the vineyard and they do not share it even they do not allow anyone to take part with. So God will destroy those wicked men miserably and lease his vineyard to other vinedressers who will render to him the fruits in their season and the fruits to be for healing to all nations.
Chapter 3, Verse 14. And he ordained twelve that they should be with him and that he might send them forth to preach. 15. And to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out devils.
The twelve appointed it symbolizes the twelve children of Jacob who created the twelve tribes of Israel. Therefore the twelve were enough to insure those things they heard and lived with Christ. The twelve were enough to convey the gospel to those who are destined for evolution and rebirth of the human race. The authority and the healing gift come by the living faith in the name of Jesus. The completion of healing comes through the repentance and rebirth. The quick as lightning miracle of healing comes by the faith to the Holy Spirit. Dedication is needed; dedicated man on the will of God is the one who first heals himself.
Chapter 3, Verse 17. And James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, the son of thunder.
Since the Holy Spirit descend and dwells in the man it creates the son of thunder the son of powers. When the Holy Spirit is absent, the man might be possessed by the evil and becomes son of demons with demonic behavior. For those who study and improve the spirituality on God’s matters, the Holy Spirit enlighten their life they become sons of thunder with signs of faith fruits and gifts.
Chapter 3, Verse 27. No man can enter into a strong man’s house and spoil his goods except he will first bind the strong man and then he will spoil his house.
Therefore, when we will understand that the strong (devil) has succeeded to enter and occupy the house of God which is our body and by passions destroys it. We will realize that we have decline God, who has created our body, then we run for help from our father God. Jesus is the great helper for us, He is able to cast out the evil and then dwells in our body fulfilling it with his merits, gifts and fruits signs through them he will heal edify and reborn for the salvation of the soul and the body.
Chapter 3, Verse 29. But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit has never forgiveness but is in danger of eternal damnation.
There is no such blasphemy. God has covered the Holy Spirit in a manner that no one to assail it. But many times we offend it by the unbelief to the fruits and signs of the Holy Spirit.
Chapter 3, Verse 33. And he answered them saying. Who is my mother or my brothers? 34. And he looked round about on them which sat about him and said. Behold my mother and my brothers! 35. For whoever shall do the will of god the same is my brother and my sister and mother.
The carnal family has the destiny to be united, in the measure it can, till death. After death depending on the spiritual level, each one goes to the right of God or to the right of evil, and the family disappear. The spiritual family alive or dead is always united. For example, Christ and His saints we honor and revere for centuries. We have to understand that we must be reborn, therefore eternally to belong to Christ family. Since we are free of the weakness to our family then we get united with the spiritual family. This unity makes us founders of the kingdom of God. Weakness to the surrounding makes us enslaved to decay and death. We will pray for our family but we will trust the spiritual, the family of Christ.
Chapter 4, Verse 1. And he began to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered to him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea, and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.
We know that many are called few are the chosen. The chosen are following Jesus anywhere without interest and aspirations. The called come for a short time and then they go away.
Chapter 4, Verse 2. And he taught them many things by parables and said to them in his doctrine.
God talks with parables to those who have spiritual sciolism. If someone is chosen he will conceive the meaning of the parable and he will start the spiritual struggle to purify and sanctify himself. Jesus talks to his disciples: a) person to person. b) By the comforter which people does not see and does not know. c) By the angels. d) By the envoy. When someone listens and obeys to one of them he becomes son of God and God abides eternally to him.
Chapter 4, Verse 11. And he said to them, To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but to them that are without, all these things are done in parables.
The mysteries are. 1) The creation, the fall of Adam and the sign of death that prevailed to all nations on earth. 2) Enoch, Moses, Elijah. 3) The prophets that proclaimed the coming of Jesus. 4) Birth of Christ by the Holy Spirit. 5) Flee to desert to be tempted by the evil. 6) Miracles and his holy teaching. 7) The passions of the holy week. 8) Sacrifice on the cross and death. 9) Burial and death. 10) Ascension and descent. 11) The comforter. 12) The abolishment of the sin the establishment of the kingdom, resurrection of dead in the name of Christ. 13) The delivery of the kingdom to Christ (the Word and the Son of the living God) by the comforter. 14) The delivery of the kingdom by Christ to the Father God, so all in all to be God. From this point starts the acquisition of the natural and super natural in heritance.
Chapter 4, Verse 21. And he said to them. Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel or under a bed? and not to be set on a candle stick?
The candle is Jesus and his teaching. The voice of God has decided to place the candle (Jesus and his teaching) on the candlestick. The candlestick is the brain of the believer and from there the light through the mouth enunciate the word of wisdom and life. Indeed this light will signify the brightness to the temple of God (our body).
Chapter 4, Verse 22. For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was anything kept secret, but that it should come abroad.
The hidden things the hidden stories, of others, must not concern us. Curiosity and criticism are not merits. In this verse Jesus talks for the hidden thing in us. When the comforter will come he will reveal the hidden sin and by the prayer study and teaching will cast it out.
Chapter 4, Verse 23. If any man have ears to hear let him hear.
To be good speakers we must be first good listeners. For many they read the bible two five or ten times and pretend they know everything consuming all their time to idle talk. For us, when the time comes, God will take us from the silence (last seat) to the first seat (because our life will talk).It is necessary our words to match with our deeds as a wise reborn man.
Chapter 4, Verse 24.And he said to them. Take heed what you hear: with what measure you use, it shall be measured to you, and to you that hear shall more be given. 25. for he that has to him shall be given and he that has not from him shall be taken even that which he has.
Many spirits entered to the world. The spirit of Christ we must listen, this spirit comprises the living voice of the living God but not the commandments of men and the religious sects. Let’s see and count with the good measure the life of our fellowmen, but not with the spirit of ego and reprove. For those who have good will and sincere effort to practice the will of God will be added more. For who has a look worm faith and disinterest for God’s will, by the scandals and adversities will be taken.
Chapter 4, Verse 37. And there arose a great storm of wind and the waves beat into the ship so that it was now full. 38. And he was in the hinder part of the ship asleep on a pillow and they awake him and say to him Master care you not that we perish? 39. He arose and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, peace, be still. And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
Since Jesus is spiritually sleeping within us because of the indifference and the spiritual indulgence, then big spiritual waves deluge daily our life. But when Jesus is awaken by the study sanctification and prayer calmness and serenity whelm our life and the evil keeps quiet, this I wish to us.
Chapter 4, Verse 40. And he said to them, why are you so fearful? How is that you have no faith?
Anything we ask in our prayer we will receive it if we have faith. Timidity reveals a spiritual uncultivated man, timidity emanates from the multifaceted ego and the fatness of materialism. Fearfulness obstructs the spiritual progress and lead us to a small world and spiritual impasse. Time to time God sends men with living faith to free us from the timidity and the multi forms of the ego.
Chapter 4, verse 41.And they feared exceedingly and said one to another, what manner of man is this that even the wind and the sea obey him?
When the man obeys to Christ then the powers will be given and the infinite powers of the nature will obey to him. Then the man with the power of love will have the authority to eliminate all the disasters and devastations of the human race. Today the nature because of the fallen man responds spasmodically like the man. The one moment behaves without mercy and the next like nothing happen. The fall of man has brought this situation and so the nature turns against us with millions of victims. When we substantially follow Christ and prophesy will be fulfilled. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God, for the creation was subjected to futility not willingly but because of him who subjected in hope.
Chapter 5, Verse 2. And when he was come out of the ship immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit. 3. Who has his dwelling among the tombs, and no man could bind him no, not with chains.
Almost all men have settled for with the idea of death and as they grow visit the cemeteries; they visit the cemetery like the demoniac. It is to be meaning, which the evil leads the man to cemetery and to death; since there the demoniac was living. O man although you have the spirit and the wisdom of God why do you compromise with the death? O man you have at hands the mechanism of your brain, look for the elements that will stop the decay and that will immortalize you. The teaching of Christ is explaining the way to apply it. For this reason Jesus ended on the cross because he revealed the secret of eternity and explained how man can abolish the power of death and to establish the constitution of life. Now is the time to do it, let’s do it.
Chapter 5, Verse 13. And immediately Jesus gave the permission to leave. And the unclean spirits went out and entered into the swine; and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand) and were choked in the sea.
Jesus had nothing against the swine, but by this manner shows that the evil exists. At the time, by the command, evil entered to swine and the man released from the schizophrenia and set free his life. The confusion from the man transferred to the calm swine and as we see they could not resist so they run to the cliff. Here Jesus reveals the problems that evil does to man. Millions of psychological problems and psychotropic drugs have intruded to our societies without therapy. Repentance and rebirth are giving us the mental healing.
Chapter 5, Verse 17. And they began to plead him to depart out of their coasts.
Although the miracle was big the interests devalued it and send Jesus out of the region. By the Holy Spirit we will understand the meaning of the miracles.
Chapter 5, Verse 28. For he said, if may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. 29. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
The clothes do not provide healings but the living faith implements the miracle. By faith we perform the miracles. The faith increases by the effort of doing the will of God or by the need to do the healing so to avoid death. What do you want? Shall I come to you with a rod or in love and a spirit of gentleness? The spirit of gentleness is (study, prayer, teaching, repentance, and rebirth) the rod is sickness.
Chapter 5, Verse 34.and he said to her, Daughter, your faith has made you whole; go in peace and be whole of your plague.
The living faith saves us from death, the shadow one leads to impasse. Faith is a fruit and increases like the other fruits with the study of the bible and the effort of cleanliness and sanctification. The epistle to the Hebrews at the chapter 11 describes how faith works and the achievements of it. Through faith we will succeed to abolish sin establish the kingdom to abolish death. For the second coming of Christ and the resurrection of the dead we need faith. Faith with no deeds is dead. Faith increases by The Holy Spirit.
Chapter 5, Verse 37. And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and john the brother of James.
Jesus takes with him only those who believe and with those he works for the salvation of the humanity. We have to do the same thing chose those we have the same faith to cooperate for the same aspects and the voice of god will help us to reborn all the nations and all those who are at the shadow of death.
Chapter 6, Verse 2. And when the Sabbath day was come he began to teach in the synagogue and many hearing him were astonished, saying, for where has this man these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to him, that even such mighty works are worked by his hands? 3. Is not this the carpenter the son of Mary the brother of James and Jose and of Judas and Simon?
Since the Holy Spirit descent and abides in some one by the wisdom transforms him into a chosen vessel, and through him reveals the glory of God in multifarious spiritual events. It is natural for the surrounding to become amazed. For those with good will it is a pleasant situation. For those with sciolism and negativity they transform the wisdom of God into a variety of scandals, of course because of jealousy. I would like to point that God does not see the face of man but the heart. Let’s try to see all our brothers in the same manner.
Chapter 6, Verse 4. But Jesus said to them, a prophet is not without honor but in his own country and among his own relatives and in his own house.
It is really difficult for the intimates and relatives to accept a prophet under the same roof, but the great devotion and the persistence of doing the will of God makes him unique and so his presence creates the conditions of judgement the time to repent and follow God or decline God.
Chapter 6, Verse 5. And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands on a few sick folk and healed them.
Perfidy prevents God; we have to pay attention and all of us to eliminate the treachery in every field. To improve in our life the good faith and all the values of the transcendent targets must be our top priority.
Chapter 6, Verse 6. And he marveled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.
It is better for God to admire for our living faith than for our unbelief.
Chapter 6, Verse 7. And he called to him the twelve and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power aver unclean spirits.
Two by two God send so the abundance of one to cover the lack of other. Two by two send God his disciples so the one to help positively the other. The one teach the other pray. The authorities against the unclean spirits are given by the Holy Spirit, through sincere repentance; to those who have the mission to release from the evil the human race.
Chapter 6, Verse 10. And he said to them. In whatever place you enter stay there till you depart from that place. 11. And whoever shall not receive you nor hear you when you depart from there shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them.
As it says for those who accept the emissary of God will receive peace and joy. For those who do not accept the emissaries they stay under various spiritual bandages.
Chapter 6, Verse 12. And they went out and preached that men should repent.
The repentance does not happen only once, it takes time and times it takes effort and persistence it is not an event and then we are OK.
Chapter 6, Verse 14. Now King Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad :) and he said, that John the Baptist was raised from the dead and therefore mighty works do show forth themselves in him. 15. Others said that Elias. And others said that it is a prophet or as one of the prophets. 16. But when Herod heard thereof he said. It is John whom I beheaded he is risen from the dead.
Only by the Holy Spirit can recognize God’s envoys without the Holy Spirit there is confusion. Some of the teachers introduce themselves as send by God and they take advantage of the ignorance as corollary to keep in captivity, all those who believe in them, with commandments and various traditions. Also (those teachers) keep the evolution and melioration as an unknown subject. Observing an envoy (send by god) we must distinguish: 1) Wisdom. 2) Love. 3) Humbleness. 4) Merits. 5) Gifts. 6) The behavior of acceptance. Love is finding ways and systems devices which will work positively for the salvation of the human race.
Chapter 6, Verse 19. Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him and would have killed him but she could not.
Rancor manifests man possessed and uncultivated brain as of the Holy Spirit principles. Haters reveal legions of demons and all of them ask our head on a plate. Rancor and detestation are properties of a non reborn man. A born again man never appears smallness and extremities. The greatest example, of the highest personality, Christ, is the one on the cross; Father, forgive them for they do not know what they do.
Chapter 6, Verse 24. And she went forth and said to her mother: What shall I ask? And she said: the head of John the Baptist.
When a man is possessed then the devil is working through and he proceeds to the extremities. Herodias was seeking for john’s head because John was conceived the perverted mind of her, adultery with her brother in law King Herod. John manifested this in front of the people. As natural consequence devil through Herodias demanded the head of John on a plate. John, although he was a great prophet he fell to the same trap like all the previous. Controlling others life he became a victim, the reason, lack of wisdom. John ended up in jail and on top of it he lost his faith to Jesus. It is important and has a vital meaning do not control others life neither try to correct them, God has His masterpiece (devil) to perfect us.
Chapter 6, Verse 31. And he said to them. Come aside by your selves to a deserted place and rest a while. For there were many coming and going and they did not even have time to eat.
This is the glory of God to rest after a spiritual deed serving our brothers. For even the son of man did not come to be served but to serve and give his life ransom for many. In other words the one who struggles not to die his fellow man, he will not die. For whosoever would save his life shall lose it and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it.
Chapter 6, Verse 34. And Jesus when he came out saw much people and was moved with compassion toward them because they were as sheep not having a shepherd and he began to teach them many things.
We see the spiritual progress today and we compare, things are the same. The entire Christian population although has to many shepherds the real one is missing. The today shepherds and the previous have the same attitude, fed themselves. Let’s all repent and strive to create the kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
Chapter 6, Verse 37. But he answered and said to them. You give them something to eat. And they said to him. Shall we go and bay two hundred denarius worth of bread and give them something to eat.
The soul needs the spiritual food the body needs the physical nourishment, both are an obligation for the disciples of Christ. For those days and today helping serving and nourishing is a function to all of us.
Chapter 6, Verse 39. And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies on the green grass.
Distributed groups at homes scattered meetings in every city all over the world by the wisdom of God, the voice of God, will supply spiritual goods.
Chapter 6, Verse 50. For they all saw him and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them and said to them. Be of good cheer it is I; be not afraid.
Courage is needed, the way to have it, is through the prayer and study of the gospel. Fear is a big obstacle that we all have; with courage we will defeat it.
Chapter 6, Verse 52. For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.
Since the system of the world dominates us the heart is hardened. We must take in our hands the gospel to study and search in it and a new world an incorruptible an immortal world full of love a new heaven a new earth will appear in front of us and our hearts will get soft and gentle.
Chapter 6, Verse 56. And wherever he entered into villages or cities or country they lay the sick in the streets and sought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment and as many as touched him were made well.
For sure the reborn again man will perform miracles by the faith and the prayer. But the greatest miracle will take place in our life. The miracle is repentance is rebirth is holy life in Jesus Christ and love offered selflessly to all men friend or enemy.
Chapter 7, Verse 6. He answered and said to them: Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites as it is written: This people honor me with their lips but their hearts is far from me.
For thousand years this prophesies of hypocrisy has effected all the generations. The reason is that the human race hasn’t reach at the levels to conceive the value of God. Life is beautiful but men spend it in smallness and personal interests. Men do not invest in the spirit but in the materialism as natural consequence ruination to appear through senility, decay and death. I wish our generation to understand the gospel and to decline the acting glorification of words the vain revered the men’s commandments that for centuries kowtow. Let’s conceive this God is Spirit and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. To those who want, now is the time the heart to kneel but not the lips (words). Lord said: By this all will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.
Chapter 7, verse 10. For Moses said: Honor your father and mother and whoever curses father or mother let him die in death.
Honor to my father not only on father’s day. Honor to my mother not only to mother’s day. Honor to parents is a great virtue. We know that no one is perfect and excuses is easy to name, our parents are worthy for every special care. Our example will become a teaching to our children. What you give this will receive. In the bible says: Honor your father and your mother that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
Chapter 7, Verse 15. There is nothing from without a man that entering into him can defile him, but the things which come out of him those are they that defile the man.
The things that enter are the food. We all know what is good for our health, but gluttony and big quantities of food are not recommended. Now what comes out are the words accompanied with the thoughts. Words after the thoughts of criticism, jealousy, egoism, slyness, wickedness, rapaciousness and blasphemy these defile.
Chapter 7, Verse 27. But Jesus said to her: Let the children be filled first for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs. 28. And she answered and said to him: Yes lord yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs.
Jesus never wants to offend anyone. The point at that time it was to show the great humiliation of the woman. Prove to all of them that humbleness is accepted by God and man, as corollary to receive the blessing (healing). Sometimes God is testing us. We have to have wakefulness endurance forbearance humbleness and the God will give us blesses and powers to perform miracles.
Chapter 7, Verse 35. And straightway his ears were opened and the string of his tongue was loosed and he spoke plain.
All illness and infirmities Jesus calls them unclean spirits (demons). Since a man with powers and authorities appears, he by the prayer release the patient, as Jesus did in this case. The evil intrudes to our life slowly but agitates our body strongly; sciolism gives the permission to him to enter. Study prayer and faith we need to eliminate the presence of evil.
Chapter 7, Verse 36. And he charged them that they should tell no man; but the more he charged them so much the more a great deal they published.
It is wise to have the same spirit of Christ to cover and hide our deeds. It is better God to advertise my deeds than I do.
Chapter 8, Verse 11. The Pharisees came and began to question Jesus. To test him they asked him for a sign from heaven. 12. He signed deeply and said. “Why does this generation ask for a sign? Truly I tell you no sign will be given to it”.
Like today many are those who seek for signs. I say it again the signs and the miracles are like the fireworks, they gleam for a little and then disappear, disappear from the sky disappear from the heart. The greatest sign will appear within us and this is when the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit will visit and abide in us. And whatever you ask in my name that I will do that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name I will do it. This is the miracle to seek for it.
Chapter 8, Verse 15. “Be careful”, Jesus warned them. “Watch out for the yeast of Pharisees and the Herod”.
The dough of Pharisees is hypocrisy. They name themselves ministers of God but they have nothing common with God. They talk about the law but they are lawless, full of commandments and heathenish theories. Insistently they forget that God is spirit and they worship him paganisly. The first part Pharisees (hypocrites) use the name of God to terrify the crowds and keep them under the veil of ignorance and sciolism, as they do for themselves. The reason is simple they want to commercialize the man spiritually and materialistically. Paul the epistle says to avoid the spiritual dealers. The second part Herod, are the politicians, they use people. Their great interest for the people, it gives those titles authorities properties movable and immovable assets and personal glorification. I suggest before we associate with them it is clever to have our own knowledge about God, by study and practice the gospel of Christ to be able discern the spirit of the others. Specially, to discern the angel of light.
Chapter 8, Verse 24. He looked up and said, “I see people they look like trees walking around”. 25. Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened his sight was restored and he saw everything clearly.
When a man for the first time is acquainted with God sees others like big trees talking, because of the ego. When for the second time man is acquainted with God through the spirit of rebirth then things are different, he becomes more acquiescent with the surrounding because he realises that he suffers like all others.
Chapter 8, Verse 29. “But what about you?” He asked. “Who do you say I am?”
Many times we will come to the same position like the disciples wondering who he is, who talks to us about God. By the time and through the knowledge and awareness of God’s word we will recognize the man that God send to us. If the man of God appears smallness like formalities commandments and restrictions this man is appointed by men. But since the man of God teaches, with wisdom of God, the achievement of the upmost target for Jesus gave his life ransom for many providing the way of salvation, is appointed by God. The teaching is: 1) The redemption of the bodies. 2) The fruits of the Holy Spirit. 3) The gifts. 4) The signs. 5) The humbleness. 6) The multifarious wisdom of God. 7) Unfeigned love for anyone friend or enemy.
Chapter 8, Verse 33. But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me Satan!” he said. “You do not have in the concerns of God but merely human concerns”.
The man, who has awareness of the Father God, precisely is Jesus as the Son of God. If someone motivated by interest and weakness try to deviates him of the destiny, that the man of God receives it from above, then the man of God having no intention becomes strict and abrupt. The reason is because he talks to the evil that in this moment the evil uses the innocent man. Advice: No familiarities and conciliation with the devil any face (of man) he might use.
Chapter 8, Verse 34. Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.
Jesus is not promising dowry to those who will follow him. He is absolute, he asks sacrifice and obedience to God’s will. Jesus has no deceit to attract followers, the cross is our ego. Let’s crucify our ego on the mountain of repentance, and as a natural result of it the new man will resurrect, the new man in Christ.
Chapter 8, Verse 35. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.
What is the value of this life? Is it worth to sacrifice this life? Is it the 50 or 90 years in comparison with the eternal? Therefore whether we live or die we are Lord’s. There is nothing else more important in our life than to become one with our Father God. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? From today from this right moment we start to dedicate all our free time and to be sure we will receive a hundredfold of spiritual merits. We have to remember that: every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow or turning. Let’s be one with Christ and his gospel and innumerable blessing will overflow our life.
Chapter 8, Verse 38. If one is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels”.
Jesus in this verse talks about those who have conceived spiritual secrets and the presence of God but the fear to say and to reveal it. The reason is because they are afraid not to be ousted or excommunicated. Unfortunately in this trap many men have fallen end lost the destiny that God has prepared for them. They also lost the opportunity to acquaint with the wisdom of God and so to sanctify and vivify their body. Modesty is not the fearfulness of expressing our faith in front of men. It is better people (adulterous and sinful generation) to be ashamed of us than God. Don’t fear little flock for it is your father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom of heaven, by the creation of the church of Philadelphia and the voice of God.
Chapter 9, Verse 1. And he said to them: “Truly I tell you some who are standing here will not taste death before they see that the kingdom of God has come with power”.
God is promising for those who will please him they will not taste death (immortalized) till his second coming. The question is: And then will they die? How this can be after two thousand years and more a body remaining incorruptible can be touch by corruption (death)? Since these men have succeeded to be alive without the presence of Christ to die at his presence? This is impossible! On the contrary all these men (incorruptible), at the second coming of Christ they have to create the people of God fulfilling the preconditions and specifications to meet Christ, all these must be incorruptible.
Chapter 9, Verse 2. After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them.
These three were chosen worthy to go with Christ on the mountain where transfigured in front of them. The three disciples represent: John the love, Peter the faith, James the wisdom. The three disciples had total submission and obedience to the Son and the Word of the living God.
Chapter 9, Verse 3. His clothes became dazzling white than anyone in the world could bleach them.
Transfiguration is the promise of God for the future, Transfiguration and transformation of our bodies will provide brightness to our soul to our bodies and clothes. As it happen to Jesus will happen to the men who have reborn. We have called to do a sincere effort; the completion of sanctification will bring the heavenly enlightenment and then transfiguration.
Chapter 9, Verse 4. And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses who were talking with Jesus.
God is not a God of dead but of living. For all live to Him. Elijah and Moses symbolize the incorruptible and immortal eternal glory that God provides to all dedicated and integral men. God is always accompanied by worthy dedicated disciples who after a real testing glorify God in the rest of their life by words and deeds.
Chapter 9, Verse 5. Peter said to Jesus, “rabbi it is good to be here. Let us put up three shelters –one for you one for Moses and one for Elijah”.
Since there is no rebirth and there is ignorance and sciolism for the will of God ensconce oneself it’s a normal thing. The personal interest and the privet kingdom is not Christ teaching. For all of us it’s a need to receive power from above to establish a general kingdom where God will rest the man. The personal interest is the misunderstood interest. The general interest is the well understood.
Chapter 9, Verse 7. Then a cloud appeared and covered them and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son to whom I love. Listen to him!”
The cloud it was a natural cloud and covered the Father from the eyes of the disciples. From the cloud voice came out and the disciples heard it. It has to be mend God has vocal cords and mouth. God is a great mystery. When Moses asked to see the Father person to person God said: Then I will take away my hand and you shall see my back my face shall not be seen. Exodus 33:23. So God the Father has face and back. Great mystery is God and the way he introduces his beloved Son.
Chapter 9, Verse 9. And they were coming down the mountain; Jesus gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
In this particular day the disciples heard inexpressible words. These words from this special event gave them powers to continue and carry on their apostolic deed. In the difficult times when Jesus has the passion they strengthen their faith remembering the day of the resurrection. Also they teach in the rest of their life events and mysteries they lived with Jesus, as the transfiguration, torment, crucifixion, death of Christ, resurrection, ascension and descent of the Holy Spirit, on the day of Pentecost. Today God supplied with spiritual treasure the voice of god, therefore all of us let’s invigorate our faith and love to carry out and fulfill the unaccomplished promises of God: 1) The annulment of the sin. 2) The establishment of the kingdom. 3) The abolishment of the physical death. 4) The second coming of Christ. 5) The resurrection of all dead in the name of Christ. 6) The saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess it forever even forever and ever.
Chapter 9, Verse 17. A man in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. 18. Whenever it seizes him it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not”. 19.”You unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “How long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me”. 20. So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground foaming at the mouth. 21. Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been like this?” “From childhood” he answered. 22. “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us”. 23. “If you can?”Said Jesus: “Everything is possible for one who believes” .24. Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my belief!” 25. When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene he rebuked the impure spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you come out of him and never enter him again”. 26 the spirit shrieked convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead” 27. But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up. 28. After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “why couldn’t we drive it out?”
From childhood the demons enter to the men, lack of spiritual knowledge or theories based on men’s commandments allows the possession to adults and to the children. The uncultivated spiritual men remaining far of the reborn societies gestate demons like fear. The old-womanish myths create fear like; do not enter to this house ... there in that river there is a water nymph (pixy)... in the darkness to the path is ... These stories and many others perpetuate the demons. This specific demon of the child was occurred by his parents and the surrounding, spiritual uncultivated and basically on men’s commandments. There are societies, presumably, cultivated spiritually on arts, literatures, science where the kids are victims of other demons, in the form of ego like: You know who am I? I am clever! I speak many languish! I am educated! And the gestation of the evil develops countless forms of egoism. These societies will oppose the teaching of Christ with indifference like the scribes and the Pharisees, the reason because of lack of humiliation and conflict of interest. We have also the society of the spiritual leaders. They persuade themselves and the (flocks) people that they have authority and they are masters of the sacraments. In this case the gestation has given birth and the statements like vertices follow one after the other repeating: They are heretics! They are sinners! We are elected! We are the only holy church! We are the only saved! It is obvious, in those societies pure ignorance and untouchable sciolism governs, far from the gospel of Jesus far from the living faith of the living God.
Chapter 9, Verse 29. He replied: “This kind can come out only by prayer”.
This kind of men, come out of what? They must come out from the smallness, come out of the bandage of ignorance of the word of God. This generation must fasten from the sin from ego. We in this generation must pray to God to increase the wisdom among people to understand the presence of God through the fruits the gifts also to conceive that God provides today the incorruptibility, today is the time for immortality and this present time with Christ is the eternal life. The prayer has and gives to the believer infinite and incorruptible powers. The fasting provides to the physical body powers to increase the time of study and practice the word of God.
Chapter 9, Verse 34. But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.
There is no great or little in the kingdom of heaven. For one star differs from another star in glory, it means the destiny that the man had on earth. So likewise you when you have done all those things which you are commanded say we are unprofitable servants. We have done what was our duty to do.
Chapter 9, Verse 35. Sitting down, Jesus called the twelve and said: “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last and the servant of all”.
Therefore till today we are at the fallen place (out of paradise) we must climb and reach back to the glory of God. Since we reach back to the completion of God, what will be the profit of second or first position? The problem is for those who will not succeed to reach to the glory of God they will be last and the others will be first. We must win. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
Chapter 9, Verse 40. “For whoever is not against us is for us”.
To this verse we have an answer. To respect the aspect whichever it is, the religious conscience, the freedom and the destiny of others. We, as voice of god, focus on the dedication to the targets that God gave us, by his revelation. We, as voice of god, do not proselytize (convert), we do not implore (beg), we do not judge, we do not fight no one, we do not see out of our destiny. The participants (brothers) God will appoint. We will gladly respond to inform any fellow man about us. We base our effort on free will in a free society.
Chapter 9, Verse 41. Truly I tell you anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to Christ, will certainly not lose their reward.
This is true, Jesus does not lie. Anything we do for the glory of God and the salvation to our brothers is appreciated. Especially, when we help provide and invigorate our brothers in the name of Christ.
Chapter 9, Verse 42. If anyone causes one of these little ones-those who believe in me-to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.
The scandals for sure will come to test the approved, but we better be careful with the preset, the premade prefabricate actions to stumble our brothers. Swimming with a millstone hung around the neck it’s not a pleasant sport.
Chapter 9, Verse 43. If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown in to hell, where the fire never goes out. 44. Where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched. 45. And if your foot causes you to stumble cut off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell. 46. Where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched. 47. And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell, where the worms that eat them do not die, and the fire is not quenched.
We do not have to cut or cast out members of our body that God has given to enjoy life. We have to reject the sin our passions and infirmities must be turn down. These move the members of our body to negative actions. This negative behavior has effects: 1) to us. 2) to surrounding. 3) to God.
Chapter 9, Verse 49. Everyone will be salted with fire. And every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt.
We must look after to cast out, from our life, the passions (sin) if not then sickness and death (fire) will take over. It is not wise to lose the life, caused of weakness or a passion, because we have considered, those, as indispensable. Wisdom is needed attention and prayer to discover the earthy and heavenly goods. The salt is the teaching of Christ and our sacrifice will be seasoned with the wisdom of the gospel.
Chapter 9, Verse 50. Salt is good, but if it loses its saltines, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, had be at peace with each other.
The salt as we said is the teaching of Christ. This teaching when we apply to the life it relishes. Since the salt (teaching) is only words then the teaching loses its flavor (unsalted) and this man receives detest from God and from people. It is not difficult to practice the word of God, little effort with persistence is need and then the rivers of heaven will deluge with wisdom and blesses from God.
Chapter 10, Verse 2. Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful a man to divorce his wife?” 3 “What did Moses command you? He replied. 4. They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away”. 5 “It was because your hearts that Moses wrote you this law “Jesus replied. 6 “But at the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
The divorce it’s not the best solution, but becomes the best solution when the environment is demonical. There are societies where two or three divorces are allowed. The effect from the divorce is big on the children, notably when children are very young and the mental injury accompanies them for the rest of their life. For a couple to avoid the separation must willingly agree follow the path for rebirth, only a reborn couple can have an entire understanding. Lack of rebirth and understanding the marriage becomes an intolerable burden. The hardness of our heart brings the hardness to our brothers.
Chapter 10, Verse 7. “For this reason a man will leave his father and his mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate”.
The unity of a man and a woman through the mystery of love and the sacrament of marriage it is still an unsolved hypothesis. The love which unites two people it is until today a social matter. The things for centuries are under development till today. It is a mutual affair for the two to become one flesh, the real love the unfeigned love will unite man and woman not only to become couple, but to become children of God. Marriage is a state of training for two strangers to become couple and share the life with its good and bad sides. With Christ the couple can hug their children their parents their neighbors. The presence of Christ is the mystery of the marriage.
Chapter 10, Verse 11. He answered, “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. 12. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man she commits adultery”.
Since there is no substantial awareness of God adultery is ineluctable. Adultery is done by the thoughts or by the deeds; therefore all have commit adultery, but let’s not despair because there is forgiveness by a sincere repentance and rebirth. Many times the relation among the couple becomes very unbearable and irrevocable. In this case the solution is divorce and the next relation has to be under Jesus spirit.
Chapter 10, Verse 13. People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them but the disciples rebuked them. 14. When Jesus saw this he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me and not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15. Truly I tell you anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it”. 16. And he took the children in his arms place his hands on them and blessed them.
Children have great innocence and too many divine elements. 1) They minimize the bad, 2) On the playgrounds when they argue in sort time reconcile, 3) Easily receive and adopt new teaching, 4) They easily bring out the true or the lie, 5) they express goodness and they are welcome to all, 6) Their compassion and giving apply to anyone. In other words countless and multifarious goods are accompany their life, unlike with adults, with the hardness of heart they nullify the teaching of Christ.
Chapter 10, Verse 17. As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher” he asked “What must I do to inherit eternal life?”
At the beginning of our spiritual life we learned that to inherit the eternal life through death we must fulfill the Ten Commandments. Because the Ten Commandments are inapplicable we will try to use the mercy of God. By mercy that Jesus has given us we will achieve our transcendent targets.
Chapter 10, Verse 18. “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good except God alone.
For sure Jesus was good and God, but for that moment he covered, because many were listening and he didn’t want to offend them, and instead of peace and admonition bring forth scandal. Never the less he teaches whoever causes of these little ones to stumble it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.
Chapter 10, Verse 19. You know the commandments; “you shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor you father and your mother”.
If we accept all these commandments they will create in us liabilities and interests and our freedom will be abolished. Therefore we will never see the kingdom of God, because the kingdom is not interests and liabilities but freedom, righteousness, peace, joy, wisdom, humbleness and love these lead us to erect the kingdom within. In the beginning the source of sin (commandments) gives us joy but later heavy unbearable loads which are driving us to early decay, sanity and death.
Chapter 10, Verse 20. “Teacher” he declared, “All these I have kept since I was a boy” 21. Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack” he said. “Go sell everything you have and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come follow me”. 22. At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.
Sacrifice is the key for the kingdom’s door; the rest is the path to lead you at the door. This is the reason, for the human race and all Christians, for they spent all their time rambling on the way to kingdom. The law, the commandments, the regulations, the orders are unable to save, but they are able to perpetuate interests, ambitions, corruption and death. Dedication with sacrifice is two things that almost every one avoids. Those who have in abundance give to those who lack.
Chapter 10, verse 23. Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!” 24. The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25. It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God”. 26. The disciples were even more amazed and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?” 27. Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God”.
In this verse Jesus it explains not for the rich how hard is to enter the kingdom, but for those who have the faith and trust in riches, in reality all of us. Unfortunately all of us feel secure and happy when we have money in the wallet or assets at bank, indeed when we have possessions we feel much better. Money and assets hide many traps. In any manner loss of money or assets brings distress and even the death. Then what are the riches for? Rich is an element to be used for the establishment of the kingdom and for the glory of God. But for the difficult times or conditions like war or the time of antichrist ordeal and tribulation will test everyone. It is not how much we have it is how much we need. With money it is impossible with God all things are possible.
Chapter 10, Verse 28. Then Peter spoke up, “We have left everything to follow you!” 29 “Truly I tell you” Jesus replied, “No one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundredfold times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields, along with persecutions, and in this age to come eternal life.
Go into the entire world and preach the gospel to every creature, it reveals great love towards God and man. This love abolishes the middle wall of separation between God and man, after such love blesses from above will overflow in a hundredfold. Go into the world, for today it doesn’t mean cover huge distances but go into the societies and enter to the mentality and the way of living of all levels of spirituality. The variety of trials and tribulations will bring in us a great number of experience and abundance of knowledge and wisdom of God as well as countless blesses.
Chapter 10, Verse 31. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.
This verse has two meanings. The first is for those who start the sanctification and devotion to God’s will, must become the last among the people, humble servants to others, and because they are humble they have the first position in front of God. The second meaning is for those who teach and admonish others with egotism, feeling elected, there is the possibility to become last in front of God, and the last called to become first in front of God. Never the less first or last is man’s evaluation; God has a complete different way to unite his children.
Chapter 10, Verse 35. Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. “Teacher”, they said, “we want you to do for us whatever we ask” “what do you want me to do for you?”he asked. 37. They replied, “Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory”. 38. “You don’t know what you are asking,” Jesus said. “Can you drink the cup I drink or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?” 39. “we can” they answered.
God has no partiality, neither his comforter, obedience is needed and sacrifice. Tribulation will come for testing us through them we must proceed to the transcendence of rebirth. It is a wonderful thing to be with God and to work with his comforter. Jesus asked from them to drink the cup. The one cup is this, they left the boat and their father and follow him, the other cup, they put aside liabilities and personal interests, another cup is love your enemies bless those who curse you do well to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. There are many other (cups) that will identify them through study and practice. For those who like to follow God through words forms and ritualism same day they will face the woe to you hypocrite! God doesn’t like to exhaust or degrade but to test us. God is asking everything to give everything. God has prepared the whole universe for his children, we have to believe it!
Chapter 10, Verse 40. “But to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared”.
Yes it is prepared for those who believe it is. God has prepared for all the population of the earth. God has no favoritism.
Chapter 10, Verse 41. When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John.
O man why you are indignant with your brothers? Take care of yourself you have many things to correct in you. The will of God is not you to correct others but to become an example for others. You get offended and scandalized, you become indignant and you think this is a right thing to do for God. God is love is mercy is forgiveness indignation has no place in us, we are children of God.
Chapter 10, Verse 45. “For even the Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many”.
Serving others is the ultimate function on earth. Providing spiritual help to our fellow man we become servants of God. Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, it means serve anyone who is next to you, and of course washing others feet we don’t solve the problem. For today there are many other ways to serve the man the society the world. How can we serve people who they don’t like us?
Chapter 10, Verse 46 – 52. Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples together with a large crowd, were leaving the city a blind man Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth he began to shout “Jesus Son of David have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet but he shouted all the more “Son of David have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him” So they called to the blind man “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you”. Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said “Rabbi I want to see” “Go your faith has healed you”. Immediately he receive his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
How is, the blind man to cry out and God to turn his face? We are blind (spiritually) and we have to cry loud for God’s mercy. Let’s ask with faith and loud voice the redemption of our sins and the liberation of the bandage.
Chapter 11, Verse 2.Saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it hear.
The colt symbolizes purity simplicity humbleness, properties of God’s children. The colt also symbolizes the New Testament the life of Christ; let’s follow the same path to enter the glory to Holy of the Holiest.
Chapter 11, Verse 7. When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it. 8. Many people spread their cloaks on the road while others they had cut in the fields.
Lord enters to Jerusalem; this symbolizes the second coming of Christ, where God and man will become full of joy and love, the glory of Christ will shine to all feces of the people of God. The second coming of Christ will be at the New Jerusalem, the spiritual city of God’s glory as it is described in the book of apocalypse. The second coming of Christ will release the human race of the agony, sickness, decay and death.
Chapter 11, Verse 9. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
Blessed is he, who comes in the name of the Lord, this does not apply to Jesus, because Jesus is the Lord. Lord cannot come in the name of the Lord. It was the reality at that time, as it is today; they have not conceived the presence of God. This prophesy; blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, will be fulfilled before the second coming of Christ, for the one who will come preparing the people for the second coming. This people will be ready, by the blessed, having sanctification sinless incorruptibility joy modesty and wisdom of God. Therefore the blessed is the one who in the name of the Lord prepares the path with the Holy Spirit and in the name of God, (the comforter).
Chapter 11, Verse 12. The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. 13. Seen in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. 14. Then he said to the tree, “May not one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard him say it.
The tree symbolizes the dough of the scribes and Pharisees, where God localized only words (leaves) without deeds. Therefore all these who invoke God in words without deeds are cursed. I wish this will not happen to us.
Chapter 11, Verse 15. On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. 17 And as he taught them he said, “is it written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations?” But you have made a den of robbers.
Some time the great zeal makes us to behave like human but not as a divine. Righteous indignation at that moment made Jesus to react like a human, as he was, but not divine as he is. For those with good intention, because they are chosen vessels, they give a reasonable excuse to Jesus. But for those with bad intention, they justify this action and grab the opportunity to blame and accuse Jesus even with the impeachment of death. At that time the majority of the people got scandalized. Jesus went against the system, to abolish the exploitation of the faith and the temple of God. We acknowledge and compliment this action of Jesus because emanated by the righteous indignation and love to Father God. The temple of God symbolizes the whole creation and it is not a den of thieves, or a market place of black marketers. But the temple is a place of prayer a sanctuary a place for the holy. The spiritual meaning of the event is that when the spirit of God by Jesus (gospel) enters into our temple (body) into the brain there is the throne of God, and then Jesus as the word of God cleans purifies and cast out all passions infirmities interests (demons). Oh Lord, come and cleanse our body (the temple of God) and make it pure worth of dwelling for the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Chapter 11, Verse 22. “Have faith in God” Jesus answered.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. By faith the promises will be fulfilled and the mysteries of God will be understood until we create the kingdom on the earth. The faith today, almost for all Christians, is shadowy. Since we will study and research on the gospel of Christ our faith from shadowy will become living faith at the state of say it and it will be done. Always faith must work through love. If our faith has no love it reverses and becomes demoniac. We must study the spirits through the gospel of Christ to avoid the mistake of using the faith for our personal interests but through love to the common interest. Now if we pray and we don’t receive what we ask we have to increase the effort to insist to study to do deeds of love. Through this living faith we will enter to the spiritual world to abolish the deleterious influence of the evil. Faith increases by the time of striving on the spiritual rebirth to us and to the surrounding. Paul said: we will go from faith to faith, hopeless is unacceptable.
Chapter 11, Verse 24. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
When we pray we talk to God and we ask things we need. When we read, study, God talks to us. Through the prayer contemplation (meditation), we will improve the conciliation with God to succeed the rebirth and then we will understand the mystery of God. Has a vital meaning to be able to reconcile with the Father God, let’s pray and ask to receive it.
Chapter 11, Verse 25. “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
Whoever does not forgive is like the servant who owed thousands of (sins) to his master and his master forgave him the dept, but that servant found one of his fellow servants who owed him one hundred (sins) and took him by the throat. But when the master (God) heard about this behavior of the wicked servant took him and put him in the jail. Let’s give mercy to any man friend or enemy. Jesus on the cross asked from the Father: forgive them for they don’t know what they do. For those who don’t forgive and they see errors and sins they harden their hart and they suffer from thrombosis and similar sicknesses.
Chapter 11, Verse 26. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.
The merciful God is full of forgiveness but it is us who do not forgive, because God remains hidden in us. First we have to forgive our fellow man and then we see that God has forgiven us in advance. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Let’s be careful when we receive accusations, we must be blameless and innocent otherwise we cannot be blessed. Since we do the will of God and they accuse and persecute us we are blessed having God’s goodwill and love. The godless man is always an opponent to a God follower; we have to forgive them because all of them need mercy and love.
Chapter 11, Verse 28. “By what authority are you doing these things?” they asked. “And who gave you authority to do this?”
Today the authorities are given from men by the men to the men although they live with lies hypocrisy and deceit they possess authority, and they think they are blessed by God and so they remain cruel merciless egoist and self seekers. The authorities are by God ordinate and are given by the Holy Spirit. Anyone who resists to the authorities he object to God orders. Then, which are the authorities given by God? The big authorities and powers that God gives are almost every two thousand years, therefore to correct and mature the humanity towards the will of God. For the small authorities and (powers), God gave the privilege to men. According to the wisdom of God men have the privilege to set, to approve, to name, to nominate, to depute, to designate, to deputize, to ordain, to canonize, in this manner the men from the men by the men to the men perpetuate the system of corruption and death. The time is now and the wisdom of God by the Holy Spirit turns the system upside down. Yes my brothers the time is now, there is no postponement it’s up to us to make it today, only is needed is love God, love your fellow man. The doors are open, the door of eternal life and the door of unfeigned love. For those who will conceive the message the authorities and the powers are offered today by the angels by the Holy spirit by the Son by the Father God.
Chapter 11, Verse 33. So they answered Jesus, “we don’t know.” Jesus said, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.
The given from God powers, cannot be conceived by the unbelievers, therefore no explanations are needed. But the powers are conceive by those who have destination for the kingdom of heaven, the people of God. Amen.
Chapter 12, Verse 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Jesus then began to speak to them in parables; “A man planted vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a pit for the winepress and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and moved to another place. 2. At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants to collect from them some of the fruit of the vineyard. 3. But they seized him beat him and sent him away empty-handed. 4. Then he sent another servant to them; they struck this man on head and treated him shamefully. 5. He sent still another and that one they killed. He sent many others; some of them they beat others they killed. 6. “He had one left to send, a son, whom he loved. He sent him last of all, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ 7. “But the tenants said to one another, ‘This is the hair. Come let’s kill him and the inheritance will be ours.’8. So they took him and killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard.” 9.”What then will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.
The vineyard is the creation. The wall, the pit, the tower are the elements which the creation and the man needs to evolve us and to develop the science, arts, literature, philosophy and progress to all fields. The farmers are all these men who today direct the destiny of the people, because the authority has been given to the leaders of the nations and the leaders of the society to evolve, develop and reborn the humanity and then present it to God. On the contrary they consider the creation as their own property and they misuse it until today. The servants are the prophets and all the men who came in the name of God as reformers of the people and they receive a horrible death. The reason is, the farmers, in the appearance of the prophets, panic to not lose the authority the personal interests in other words ensconce oneself. They follow the easy solution, kill and keep the power with the benefits and don’t give a dime to the boss. The son is Christ, the corrupted conscience of the workers considering themselves authority and the cunning spirit did not like the inheritor and led them to crucify him. After this action they became unworthy, it is a matter of time and the angels will direct them to unquenchable fire. Now the farmers (vinedressers) remembering the wicked works of the bud vinedressers will not do the same mistakes. The wisdom of God permitted the mistakes of the old workers to become an experience for the new workers. The perdition that God will supply to bud farmers is the appearance of the antichrist, which will ravage the lie and hypocrisy with all those who gestate them. To the new workers and disciples prophesy will be fulfilled. You shall eat the riches of the gentiles and in their glory you shall boast. All the written will be fulfilled but first God will seal his elects (new workers).
Chapter 12, Verse 10. Haven’t you read this passage of the Scripture: “The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone?”
The stone that the builders rejected is Christ. The builders who were erecting spiritually the people of Israel they considered unworthy and they rejected. But the new builders of the spiritual structure of Christ will take this stone (Christ) to use it and reclaim as a cornerstone, where on him and his holy teaching will erect the present and the future structure (system) of God. The voice of God and all the brothers work today for all nations to reborn on the (stone) Christ.
Chapter 12, Verse 16. They brought the coin and he asked them, “Whose image and inscription is this?” ‘Caesar’s’ they replied. Then Jesus said to them, “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to god what is God’s.”
Today Caesar is represented by the present secular system, like workforce banks taxation and more. The system (law) of Christ will abolish these, until then, we have to pay taxes and cover all the obligations we have, because this system is cruel and it is based on individual interest and personal ambitions. In this system the conditions for rebirth are very limited.
Chapter 12, Verse 27. “He is not the god of the dead but of living. You are badly mistaken!”
In the book: The Wisdom of Solomon: it says: For God made no death neither hath the pleasure in the destruction of living. For he created all things that they might be. And he made the nations of the earth for health; and there is no poison of destruction in them or kingdom of hell upon the earth. For justice is perpetual and immortal. Therefore the Christian societies who invest on death they are all wrong, because God does not want man to die. God wants from men to discover the way and by Christ to live forever with his biological body. God is not God of the dead but of living. If we want to glorify God we must glorify through the eternal life abolishing the dead. We must believe this. Otherwise if we continue the indifference we will die and then we will reach the first or the second resurrection, and through the resurrection we will enter the world of living (soul and body). My brothers, Jesus has died for us, and for us not to die, living faith is needed.
Chapter 12, Verse 30. “Love the lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
With all your heart: Heart is an organ of the body its function is for the circulation of the blood in the body and vivifies the body. The heart that Jesus is talking is the hidden place of our brain, God and man knows what is in there. Since in the deep place of our heart there is the hidden desire of loving God it leads us to devotion even to sacrifice for Christ and his people. God blesses the hidden places of our brain and our hidden life because is known to him and to us.
With all our soul: The soul is our spirit, with the materialistic substance existing in unshaped matter not perceptible by naked eye. But it can be perceptible by the Holy Spirit and by the insight that God develops and improves for the devoted man. Our soul (spirit) must be united with the spirit of God so God’s love discloses and integrates the development of our spiritual substance.
With your entire mind: the function of the mind is to decode the concepts the performance and the data of the senses. The products of the mind are the spiritual rights of the oral or written word. Therefore our mind has to derive all the mysteries that exist in God’s mind, and produce the progress that will direct us to the living land (God’s kingdom).
With all your strength: We all have strength (energy). God is asking from us to exploit this power and use for prayer for study for teach. The question is: Do nothing else? Of course not we have to cover the obligations we have to minimise the wasting time of checking around. In the beginning we may contribute our strength to vanity, but by the time we have to work with all our strength for the glory of God.
Chapter 12, Verse 31. “The second is this: ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
To love our neighbor as our self is not an easy thing, but at the beginning love can be given within our limits, but then we may increase it slowly. For sure we need the wisdom; otherwise we will end up to an impasse. Jesus was able, by faith, to offer substantial love to those who suffered and release them from incurable illnesses. In the beginning of my spiritual life I was giving everything as a result my family to lack even of food. But later Jesus helped me to understand and to assist all those who have the goodwill to be reborn within an affordable rate. This means that I will never regret for the love I have to my neighbor. Therefore Jesus was praying a lot for his disciples and for those who followed seared with them everything. Jesus was careful with those who were listeners of the word but not doers. The voice of God for now and for the future will take care of all neighbors’ regardless dogmas or nation and will help all brothers to get rid of the sin and the evil who keeps the spiritual darkness. For one person the things are little difficult, but everything starts from the one and then become many.
Chapter 12, Verse 36. David himself speaking by the Holy Spirit declared: “The Lord said to my Lord. Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.”
Jesus commiserates with the man and for this reason came to the world, to reveal the enemies of the man. Jesus first revealed the evil and he defeated, therefore he gives us the hope and the courage to defeat (as Jesus did) the enemies of the men like the present possessed system where the lie hypocrisy ignorance decay egoism sanity sickness and death are ruling. Until the time that the human race will predominate the enemies, Jesus will remain at the right hand of the Father. The Holy Spirit by the Comforter works to help the man precisely the new disciples through the appropriate effort to release themselves from the enemies. When this liberation will happen then Jesus will appear, (the second coming).
Chapter 12, verse 37. “David himself calls him Lord. How then can be his son?” The large crowd listened to him with delight.
Gladly we can hear someone who speaks by the Holy Spirit because the speech emanates from the home of God and by his wisdom. The teaching of God and the teaching of scribes and Pharisees is like day and night. The teaching of Christ has wisdom that triggers the interest to listen with attention and pleasure because it is based on the way of living, has the new concept of wisdom, has the spiritual science, and has the evolution. The teaching of the scribes and Pharisees has idolatry ritual performances which they offer nothing but tiredness and lead to the impasse. We know from the beginning the starting point and the ending point of the subject.
Chapter 12, Verse 38. As he taught Jesus said, “Watch out for the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and be greeted with respect in the marketplace, and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. 40. They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. These men will be punished most severely.”
What to say the words are useless. Everybody is aware of the hypocrisy and bragging and its principles ostentation; let’s give an end to this.
Chapter 12, Verse 41. Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. 42. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins worth only a few cents. 43. Calling his disciples to him Jesus said, “Truly I tell you this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. 44. They all give out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything-all she had to live on.”
There is big difference between the offering from the abundance and the offering from the lack, and the blessing is different accordingly. The offering from the lack reveals maturity and sacrifice. This sacrifice will be used for the establishment of the kingdom on earth.
Chapter 13, Verse 1. As Jesus was leaving the temple, one of his disciples said to him, “Look teacher! What massive stones! What magnificent buildings!” 2 “Do you see all these great buildings?” reply Jesus. “Not one stone here will be left on another; everyone will be thrown down.”
These events, to these particular areas, have happen and repeatedly will happen till the second coming of Christ. The history has proved it, the Holy Spirit informs us that will happen again and again because this world is governed by interests and personal ambitions.
Chapter 13, Verse 5. Jesus said to them: “Watch out no one deceives you. 6 Many will come in my name, claiming, “I am he” and will deceive many.
There is no other God except of our God; this is a common phrase that the preachers for many years accentuate. This spirit created dogmas fanaticism dividing the people to sects and various groups. I would like to emphasise that; we must study the bible and to observe where are those who really practice it. One of the characteristics of the false conception is to erect a God on us but out of us, on ritualism fanaticism and personal interests. We are free to choose the group and the place where the presence of God is growing within us, and this will be justified in a daily base. Slowly, as the Disciples of Christ, we will start to imitate him, as Paul said: Imitate me just as I also imitate Christ. And Jesus said: But this all will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.
Chapter 13, Verse 7. When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.
Ambitions and interests create the extreme situation unbearable for the majority of the population. We may remember the first and the second war. The fear of a third war is rambling because of the financial problems between the counties. The beginnings of the sorrows are also every time we have earthquake, deluge, fires and hurricane. I wish the nuclear energy to be used peacefully and for the good of the people.
Chapter 13, Verse 9. “You must be on your guard. You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues. On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them.
The prophetic words of Christ have occurred in the years of the epistles and for many centuries the persecution of the believers and followers was inevitable. The gospel of Christ (the gospel of kingdom) contradicts to the interests of the rulers who exploit the people. For the same reason at the time of antichrist the new disciples of Christ will be persecuted. It is obvious righteousness of God (equal rights to every man) contravene to the corrupted system. The abolishment of the corruption and death, according to the gospel of Christ, will confront the leaders and the rulers of the existing system. The gospel of the kingdom provides the spiritual liberation of man which collides with the interests of the “spiritual” leaders of the various churches. Now it is the time to act with the wisdom of God. Ignore those who keep the traditions like: this symbolises... in the memory... in remembrance of that event... Now is the time to see Christ and conciliate with him in person, intermediates are not needed. We have seen many obscurantist in the name of Christ, they are small antichrist, let’s imagine for the big one. In this verse sais about council’s synagogues before rulers, for the disciples of Christ. The first but powerful council it’s our own family where evolution and rebirth is unacceptable. The family, usually, keeps the tradition and the formality as the only way to glorify God. Another successful system, made by the intermediates, is the construction of big buildings and the erection of a throne where the king (Christ) is sitting but inactive and dead. Let’s liberate ourselves from the present corrupted system, let’s believe to the living God by the living voice of God.
Chapter 13, Verse 10. “And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.”
The gospel of the kingdom must contain: 1) sinless, 2) undivided, 3) coherence, 4) integrated (because does not preclude life through life), 5 sanctification, in the view of the fact the gospel of Christ has an effect in any field of the life because is the constitution of the everlasting life.
Chapter 13, Verse 11. “Whenever you are arrested and brought to the trial, do not worry before about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.”
Having good intention we don’t have to prepare any speech, the word of love flows unhindered. The Holy Spirit, if we allow it, will care for us in as much as we believe in it. We don’t have to worry the presence of the Holy Spirit is a fact, for many of us this verse has been practiced successfully, we don’t have to disquiet for the unstable future we must increase the faith by practicing the will of God.
Chapter 13, Verse 12. “Brother will betray brother to death and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death.
Since someone faces the death he becomes able to betray even his family. A solid and incorruptible conscience of a born again man can resist a tribulation in any level. The fear of we might be persecuted or ousted or excommunicated or rejected by the society can abolish any relation or association. At the place of Gethsemane Jesus proved that had no fear he didn’t hide himself but exposed and cover his disciples avoiding the death penalty for them.
Chapter 13, Verse 13. “Everyone will hate you because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.”
Be hated because I am Christian or be hated because I love my fellow man, for the evil, both are an excuse to hate and to persecute. Christ tells us to endure. “Your will be done”. Patience is a merit. “By your patience posses your souls” For you have need of endurance, but he who endures to the end shall be saved.
Chapter 13, Verse 14. “when you see ‘the abomination that causes desolation’ standing where it does not belong-let the reader understand- then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 15. Let no one on the hose top go down or enter the hose to take anything out. 16. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak.
The abomination of the desolation is the antichrist that has no principles of love. The antichrist will deprive the people of God’s principles and will impose a military regime. At that time, Jesus tells us to depart to leave and abandon everything. Leave from where and abandon what? All things have a spiritual meaning. God will gather his people from all nations by his angels and his send. The man who stays far from the sense of God, the abomination of the desolation erects slowly in the brain of the man and it appears fanaticism and ego, it creates enemies and wars in many forms. God will give more revelations to those who study pray and cleanse themselves.
Chapter 13, Verse 17. “How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers!”
The pregnant and the nursing baby’s mothers are the sciolism. The sciolism many times is worst of ignorance because the sciolism makes the man to feel like a well informed and he does not take anything from no one. In the case of ignorant the possibilities are better, an ignorant if he will accept the send man by God he might learn about God. As we know the time of pregnancy and nursing baby’s it is short and limited.
Chapter 13, Verse 18. “Pray that this will not take place in winter.”
Winter time has its difficulties. The winter conditions normally has inflexibility, if we translate this to spiritual meaning we can say “stiffness in the brain”.
Chapter 13, Verse 19. “Because those will be days of distress unequaled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now-and never to be equaled again.”
In the near future economic crisis will affect many countries, and warlike people will take the power and the government in many nations. This people (warlike) will be considered responsible for the negative situation. The spiritual leaders of the religions and sects claiming that the contradiction of the religions brought to the nations this predicament. This reason will give right to them to impose the regime of antichrist, abolishing the religions and killing all those who believe in God. The question will be, do you accept the new status quo? Otherwise you suffer. For the disbandment of the religions the first victims will be all the fanatics who reasonably will die for the glory of their dogmas. Let’s be informing how the people of God will move to that difficult time of tribulation. God is promising will protect and seal his people, are we his people?
Chapter 13, Verse 20. “If the Lord had cut short those days, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them.”
In this verse says that the Lord observes his people and at the moment of perish he will shorten the time of tribulation. The elects are all those who have elect God to govern their life, by study and pray as well as to purify and cast out all the elements and theories that deprive the freedom of the spirit in word’s and in action among the societies. Also the elects observe in details themselves to eliminate from their spirit and body anything foreign to God.
Chapter 13, Verse 21. “At that time if anyone says to you, ‘look here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘Look there he is!’ do not believe it. 22. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to deceive if possible, even the elect. 23. So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.
For thousands of years religions and dogmas direct the people with bigotry as it happens today. But this bigotry contains evil and each one is trapped to religiosity losing not only his freedom but the whole life the present and the future. We have fell to the same snare by the merchants of the soul, fear and only fear not to perish the soul, the soul belongs to God, how can be perished? (invisible product for sale). I would like to say that God lives in the man, since he discovers. For those who believe that God lives in us they are sending by God. The teaching of Christ creates a man with wisdom, the wisdom supplies the man with versatility, versatility identifies the dissimulations of the evil, the evil artificially fabricates man commandments and doctrines, and erects buildings to glorify himself, but all these in the name of Christ who lives far very far same where in heaven. The kingdom is in us, God is within us, any other doctrine is false. For God’s man, the prove is, that he has fruits and signs as well as wisdom of God.
Chapter 13, Verse 24. “But in those days, following that distress, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.”
Those days of tribulation are the days of antichrist, the sun is Christ his teaching will be interdicted, and his church (the moon) will give no light because of the forbiddance. This is the time of (my brother silence) and the church of Christ will stay silent. The stars are the high spiritual leaders of the churches many of them will fall because they will betray Christ. Humbleness is a big merit to save us; any position in chief ship will put us in danger.
Chapter 13, Verse 26. “At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.”
The Lord first comes in clouds and we cannot see him clearly, we do not conceive because our spirituality is low. But after we will see him clearly face to face because we will be ready for the second coming.
Chapter 13, Verse 27. “And he will send his angels and gather his elects from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.”
And the saints will take the kingdom and have it forever because Jesus will be with them.
Chapter 13, Verse 28. “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out you know that summer is near.”
The tree symbolise the man who has only words but the time is coming and we will understand that we have to have deeds. Leaves are the words (speeches) the figs are the deeds. The end of the day is end of the sin. When we will see the two camps (lobbies) the extreme good and the extreme bad the end is coming soon.
Chapter 13, Verse 30. “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.”
This generation it means all the generations of sin consider as one. So before the sin reaches to fullness the end will come and all the written will be fulfilled. Therefore the spirituality of man will succeed the level, of his image and to his likeness, to meet God.
Chapter 13, Verse 31. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
In this verse I would like to make a comparison. Let’s say the heaven as spirit and earth as body is the man. The words of Jesus are a train traveling along through the generations in the time. The train travels and it is full of people two or three generations together. For the next station the dispatcher announces: Next station High Lands, is anyone to get down? Some men stop the trip and get off the train. The dispatcher announces: Next station Village of Sorrow is someone to come down? Some men stop the trip and go down. And the dispatcher continues to announce one station after the other... station of Republic ... station of Ministry ... station of General Hospital ...there many men end the trip. Next station General Cemetery there the whole wagon empties because they think the trip is finished. No my brothers the trip does not finish here the trip continues there are other stations further as the station of Transfiguration, the station of Incorruptibility, the station of Immortality and the station of Eternity. O my brothers we have a fellow traveler who is telling us: you don’t have to end your trip on your ticket has written Eternity, this trip can be forever. O my brothers how can I devalue this ticket? My fellow traveler paid for it with His Holy blood and he offered to me for free, a free ticket for the kingdom of God, a free ticket for the immortality! I wish all of us to appreciate the ticket of life, the ticket of freedom.
Chapter 13, Verse 32. “But about that day or hour no one knows not even the angels in heaven nor the Son but only the father.
If Jesus knew it could say it, but the wisdom of God did not want the son to reveal the time. The reason is that the repentance should be hypocritical as the time was coming close of the predicted date. Jesus said when it is to rain you understand it; when a heat wave is coming also you understand it. Today we all understand that the time of the Lord is near and there are many men striving for the rebirth and the substantial spirituality of possessing health joy wisdom powers and longevity.
Chapter 13, Verse 33. “Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. 34 It’s like a man going away: he leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch. 35 Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back -whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. 36 If he comes suddenly do not let him find you sleeping. 37 What I say to you I say to everyone: Watch!”
In these verses Jesus admonishes for the spiritual vigilance study pray and practices the word of God till to assimilate and become a way of living. Study it means to discover and detect all the forms of the multiphase untiered sin. Pray and ask the presence of the Holy Spirit to purify myself and fulfill me with peace joy and love. Practice every hour of the day the will of God; this is the vigilance we need.
Chapter 14, Verse 1. Now the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread were only two days away, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were scheming to arrest Jesus secretly and kill him. 2. “But not during the festival,” they said, “or the people may riot.”
Beguilement is a trait of the unfaithful men and it is used against Jesus and the people of God. But their mistakes it is glory for God and his people. It is glory for God since the children of God reached the level from where can see that all things work together for good for those who love God.
Chapter 14, Verse 3. While he was in Bethany, reclining at the table in the home of Simon the Leper, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured the perfume on his head. 4. Some of those present were saying indignantly to one another, “why this waste of perfume? It could have been sold for more than a year’s wages and the money given to the poor.” And they rebuked her harshly. 6. “Leave her alone,” said Jesus. “Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 7. The poor you will always have with you and you can help them any time you want. But you will not have me. 8. She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body beforehand to prepare for my burial. 9. Truly I tell you wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.
Jesus as God had no need of perfume he is the Holy Myron. But like man he honored with the perfume revealing with action that the time of crucifixion has come. This was a way of this woman to express her great love she had for Jesus. And Jesus honored this woman and her action is preached with the gospel until now. How God can forget the good deeds of his children?
Chapter 14, Verse 10. Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went to chief priests to betray Jesus to them. 11. They were delighted to hear this and promised to give him money. So he watched for an opportunity to hand him over.
Was the motivation of Judas the money? Was it the glory? Was it the stupidity? To betray his teacher. We may give many answers but the truth is he possessed by the evil, we know the result, he lost the control of his mind and he hang himself.
Chapter 14, Verse 13. So he sent two of his disciples telling them, “Go into the city and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him. 14. Say to the owner of the hose he enters, “The Teacher asks: where is my guest room where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?
The man who carries the jar is the man who will lead us to God. Is sent by God to show us the house of God and there we will enjoy with Christ forever. The dinner symbolises the day when God and man will sit together at the table of humbleness with love and wisdom.
Chapter 14, Verse 18. While they were reclining at the table eating, he said, “Truly I tell you one of you will betray me one who is eating with me.”
We have to pay attention how we live with God, therefore not to betray his task and then by our mistakes convict ourselves to an eternal sentence. Attention for conclusion we take by the time we work for God.
Chapter 14, Verse 19. They were saddened, and one by one they said to him, “Surely you don’t mean me?
A humble person observes himself not to do any mistake not to God neither to man. This caution provides wisdom and this wisdom leads to salvation of the soul and the body.
Chapter 14, Verse 21. “The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”
Judas had no reason to do this movement. Jesus gave him the position to be treasurer; he had the authority to manage and to use the goods from God and from the people. He was taking care of the money; they say he had built a villa where he enjoys it. Judas hung himself not because he repented but because he regretted. The reason... (He had a cow and milked but he slaughter).
Chapter 14, Verse 22. While they were eating, Jesus took bread and when he had given thanks he broke it and gave it to his disciples saying, “Take it; this is my body.”
To eat Jesus’ body means first to test and then to imitate his spiritual effort. His body means the immolation of his life to become an example for all of us. For the common interest we must strive but not for the personal. Sacrifice is the common name written in the book of Revelation.
Chapter 14, Verse 23. Then he took a cup and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it. 24. “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many,” he said to them.
The blood symbolises the word, the speech of true, the teaching of the gospel of life, from us to all nations on earth, because Christ is the first appeared Son of God on earth, and is calling all nations through us to become brothers of his and sons of our father God. As Christians we have this destiny. Receiving the Holy Communion is not the only a ritual obligation but a responsibility to the son ship.
Chapter 14, verse 25. “Truly I tell you, I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”
The natural vine for centuries is used as a kind of liaison among people. In this case Jesus gives one more reason to improve our relations and to keep unity till he meets us at the kingdom. The new vine is the new way of living, an absolved life from the sin and ego.
Chapter 14, Verse 26. When they had sung a hymn, went out to the Mount of Olives.
The Mount of Olives it was a place where Jesus was visiting often. In this very special moment Jesus had to pray and take power to continue his task. On the mountain where calmness and silence is offered we can have the best conditions for prayer. By the prayer we can derive powers like persistence to carry on our destiny, like forgiveness to uproot the bitterness, like compassion to cover the needs of our fellow man.
Chapter 14, Verse 27. “You will all fall away,” Jesus told them, “For it is written: I will strike the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered. 28 But after I have risen, I will go Head of you into Galilee.”
With these words Jesus prepared the path for himself and the path for his disciples. He knew the abilities of his disciples but he had to inform them for the tribulation to stay strong in front of the coming torture. The awareness of the death and the resurrection had to keep them united and stable. The scandal is to come and go, during the tribulation there is always an evolution; the target of evil is the disappointment. Do not think what to say before the rulers.
Chapter 14, Verse 29. Peter declared, “Even if all fall away, I will not.”
Because of love Peter tried to persuade Jesus, but spiritual maturity is a vast field. Peter said this by the emotion of love and devotion to Jesus but Jesus knew Peter’s abilities. This became an example to us, enthusiasm is needed but within limits. The spiritual maturity takes time and effort, striving and persistence for the accomplishment of the targets. What is hard and difficult for man is easy for God.
Chapter 14, Verse 33. He took Peter, James and John long with him, and he began to be deeply distressed and troubled. 34. “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death,” he said to them. “Stay here and keep watch.”
Why Jesus took with him only these three disciples because of partiality? Of course not. The reason is that with them went through many tribulations during the three years period of preaching and helping people. It is a great thing to gain the trustfulness of God and be with him. There are many men who are nagging for smallness, they complain for what they don’t have, they moan for that they are, and always they questioning why this why that. For them it is impossible to please God, remaining in the land of unthankfulness.
Chapter 14, Verse 36. “Abba, Father,” he said, “everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but you will.”
This moment it was a corporeal one. Besides, how could it be possible he who is life to accept the death? But this was the will of the Father and instantly Jesus corrected, saying not as I will but as you will. Our spiritual progress grows when we have tribulations and we insist in prayer until proven that we trust God. The logic of people impels us to quit since the tribulation starts but the wisdom of God exhorts us to continue and win the battle against the evil.
Chapter 14, Verse 38. “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.”
The temptation is instantaneous the tribulation might take many years. Jesus knew what would happen and emphasise to them to pray. We must pray we must learn how to pray incessantly, during the day when we walk when we drive when we work. The noetic prayer can be everywhere for the Holy Spirit to protect us. The prayer is the driving power force of everything.
Chapter 14, verse 45. Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, “Rabbi!’ and kissed him.
There are three types of kisses. The first is the real one the mental with joy and bless of God. The second the erotic one. The third is the betrayal one. A spiritual man can distinguish all of them; but the secular can conceive the intention of the kiss.
Chapter 14, Verse 60. Then the high priest stood up before them and asked Jesus, “Are you not going to answer? What is this testimony that these men are bringing against you? 61. “But Jesus remained silent and gave no answer.
Silence is gold and featuring an integrated man. The silence of Jesus at the time of trial is revealing the complete confidence of the presence of his heavenly Father. The time of trial Jesus was calm and silent because he didn’t wait for the sentence of the men but his Father’s decision. For three years Jesus was explaining to his disciples the determination to carry on his task. Therefore silence, in difficult times, emanates from the awareness of God; and this awareness I wish to all of us.
Chapter 14, Verse 62. “I am,” said Jesus. “And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right of the Might One and coming on the clouds of heaven.”
In this verse Jesus means his second coming which I wish, this present generation, to see it. Jesus was the Son of God and the son of man. Son of God because his father was God created by the Holy Spirit and son of man because he came from one person (the Virgin Mary).
Chapter 14, Verse 63. The high priest tore his clothes. “Why do we need any more witnesses? He asked. 64 “You have heard the blasphemy, what do you think?”
Religiosity of those days and religiosity of today are alike. The deeds of Jews and the deeds of Christians are the same. The interpretation of the scriptures then and the interpretation of the scriptures today are according to the interests. The concept of God’s will is still a matter of disputation. Although it is so clear that God’s will is the man to abolish sickness and death, the man puts God in death. We must feel sorry for this logic for those days and for today. We have to think with wisdom and approach the gospel with sincerity but not with fanaticism or bigotry and hypocritical faith.
Chapter 14, Verse 68. But he denied it. “I don’t know or understand what you’re talking about,” he said, and went out into the entryway.
Peter’s refusal at that time had occurred by the fear to avoid crucifixion. Fear in our life it makes hell. Peter was in his secular environment and the reaction of denial it was permitted by God and so God protected his life, if he was not in denial he should follow Christ to the cross. After this action we see three facts, first Peter cared for repentance, second save his life and third he fulfilled his spiritual task. God has many ways to save his children.
Chapter 14, Verse 72. Immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Then Peter remembered the word of Jesus had spoken to him: “before the rooster crows twice you will disown me three times.” And he broke down and wept.
Real contrition rests on awareness and regret. Repentance and forgiveness are two merits to use them every hour. The narrative says; after this when Peter was hearing in the morning the rooster’s crow he cried. When the rooster crows he exposes his position to the fox and becomes prey to the fox. Likewise the ego man (rooster) boosting himself becomes a victim to the egoistic society.
Chapter 15, Verse 5. But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed.
When questions emanate from ironic spirit and no good intention, like Pilate, silence is the best answer. We must be able to distinguish the intentions of others and by the wisdom of God to respond. If the intentions are with good will we respond with politeness and admonition. If the intentions are mixed with mockery contradiction and dispute silence is the best response.
Chapter 15, Verse 15. Waiting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them.
Barabbas symbolises the evil, who till today, is free in our societies and fulfills his desires through the man against God. Jesus symbolises God who till today wears the crown of thorns and stays on the cross at Calvary. I wish the human race today, to conceive the difference and make the choice to bind the evil and liberate Jesus. Today Jesus is needful to evolve and improve the humanity to the level where he is and reigns. This is the project of the voice of god today.
Chapter 15, Verse 16. The soldiers led Jesus away into the palace (that is the Praetorium) and called together the whole company of soldiers. 17. They put a purple robe on him then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him. 18. and they began to call out to him, “Hail, king of the Jews!” 19. Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him. 20. And when they had mocked him they took off the purple robe and put his clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him.
Only a non reborn man is able to do these and more than these, to God and to the fellow man when the interests necessitates. We have responsibility for our deeds and for all our actions we take against God against man and against the creation. A man does not die only by a bullet but by any bad word. If we reborn our deeds and our words they will work for the glory of God and for inheritance of the creation.
Chapter 15, Verse 21. A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country and they forced him to carry the cross.
Simon the Cyrenian today can be anyone who helps the send man of God to carry on the destiny that God gave to him. Another meaning is that the Cyrenian symbolises the elect man who many times carries our cross (difficulties) to us till we get strengthen. As the destinies grow the Cyrenians increase. To become Cyrenian to one another it means, those who have in abundance give to those who lack.
Chapter 15, Verse 29. Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “So! You, who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, come down from the cross and save yourself!” 31. In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. “He saved others” they said “but he can’t save himself! 32 Let this Messiah, this king of Israel, come down now from the cross that we may see and believe.” Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him.
There are many who mock and reprove the good intention of God’s people. Do not judge not to be judged. Inexcusable is the man who judges like all those who condemned Christ for his immolation.
Chapter 15, Verse 33. At noon darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon.
The innocent Son of God dies. How can that be? Can the vindicated in front of God be on the cross? Is it possible that the whole creation is not commiserated?
Chapter 15, Verse 34. And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (Which means “My God, My God why have you forsaken me?”)
Only with a loud voice the soul could come out, it couldn’t be different. A man can die, if God (life) forsakes him. It should be the same way for Jesus, and then comes the glory of resurrection.
Chapter 15, Verse 38. The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
The veil of the temple separates the holy from the rest of the temple where the crowd gathers. In the Holy only the high priests were allowed to enter to communicate with God. This veil after the death of Christ abolished, since then anyone can enter by repentance and rebirth. By faith to Christ and after the sanctification we all are allowed to the Holy of Holiest and communicate with the living God. This place (the Holy of the Holiest) is not any more a privilege of the priests but is the destiny of all believers. For a man who is reborn it becomes a status of communication and conciliation with God.
Chapter 15, Verse 39. And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!”
For many men they want first to see and then to believe, for some others they like first to suffer and then to learn, for us as the voice of god this is not necessary.
Chapter 15, Verse 40. Some women were watching from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joseph, and Salome. 41. In Galilee these women had followed him and care for his needs. Many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem were also there.
These women were selected and send by God to be next to Jesus to serve him with love and devotion and accompany him till the last moment of the trial.
Chapter 15, Verse 46. So Joseph bout some linen cloth took down the body wrapped it in the linen and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb.
Father God took care for the body of his Son, through Joseph of Arimathea. Jesus’ body kept for three days till the resurrection in a tomb newly hewn out of the rock.
Chapter 16, Verse 3. And they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
The stone symbolises the sin, the sin impedes the human race to understand the meaning of the burial and the resurrection of Christ. For those who have good intention God sent his angels to help and remove the stone (sin) from their life. O my brothers Jesus died for not us to die. He redeemed our sins with his dead. Through his (redemption) gave us the big mercy to create in us the new man the sinless, the heir and coheir of his glory. Mercy of God is for every day practice, the sin causes guiltiness and the guiltiness hell and the daily hell leads to death. Life and death works within us, why don’t we choose life? In the reality we do not sin we misinterpret the gospel, God is merciful, Jesus is forgiving us, let’s forgive our brothers.
Chapter 16, Verse 9. When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons.
Why Jesus first appeared to Mary Magdalene? I believe Jesus has helped this woman in a spiritual manner releasing her from seven demons. The cleanliness of Mary was big and her love to Jesus was bigger. The seven demons that Jesus cast out of her was 1) cunning, 2) ego, 3) prostitution, 4) ignorance of the word of God, 5) gluttony, 6) hypocrisy, 7) avarice.
Chapter 16, Verse 12. Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country.
In different form it means in another look (for example short hair, beardless, different cloths). Another form it means also they knew him as a man who speaks with frankness the will of God and now as simple traveler having a normal discussion about the last news of the region. Jesus did not appear as they knew him, but later he revealed himself. It is unthinkable, you go to someone’s funeral and then. How can you imagine that the fellow traveler next to you is the dead man from the funeral? How strange is the resurrection for our logic? We may think maybe it’s someone who is alike. To be sure for him he is resurrected he must do a movement or a gesture like something unique of his personality and then to believe that he has resurrected, the man is our friend our brother our God.
Chapter 16, Verse 14. Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.
Why then he did not appear first to his disciples? Why did he appeared to Mary and the other two? The reason is that Jesus wanted with his appearance to abolish the unbelief of his disciples in a personal and general level. Therefore, (and after his ascension) he wanted his disciples to be governed by the positive faith and noble emulation to one another. The chaste intention in our relation will improve the love among us.
Chapter 16, Verse 15. He said to them, “Go into the entire world and preach the gospel to all creation.
The disciples took this inducement and put it in their lives, as a result they possessed a spiritual treasure which was used for the glory of God and the salvation of the people. Today the new Disciples of Christ do not take seriously this exhortation as corollary to lack the heritance of God’s glory. It is obvious the materialistic preoccupation, because of personal interests, bereaves the man of the spiritual property of God of the spiritual family of the incorruptible eternal life. The gospel of Christ is a way of living, if we do not see it in this way it is possible we never glorify the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these will be added to you. Go to the entire world and preach the gospel to all creatures.
Chapter 16, Verse 19. After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.
There is no difference between heaven and earth. All live, move and flow in heaven. The heaven is cuddling all. Therefore, the seat at the right hand of God, it can be next to us but we cannot see him. In other words Jesus is among us but the corruption does not affect him. Since we fulfill the will of God we will have the same glory (at right hand of God).
Chapter 16, Verse 20. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
The first greatest miracle is the repentance, the sincere repentance will never let us to deviate on our spiritual trip. The second great miracle is the rebirth to be born again by the Holy Spirit. Let be done. Amen.
