I shall light a candle of understanding in thine heart, which shall not be put out. Great is truth; and mighty above all things. But the Souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them. For though they be punished in the sight of men, yet is their hopeful of immortality. And having been a little chastised, they shall be greatly rewarded, for God proved them and found them worthy for himself. And in time of their visitation they shall shine, and run to and fro like sparks among the stubble. He that toucheth pitch shall be defiled therewith. Leave off first for manners’ sake: let us now praise famous men, and our fathers that beget us. And some there be, which have no memorial, when he was at the last gasp.
There came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, where is he that is born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east and are come to worship him. They presented unto him gifts – gold, and frankincense and myrth. Repent ye; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The voice of one crying in the wilderness. Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees. This my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased. Men shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Fishers of men.
• “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.” “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.” “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”
• “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.”
• “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.”
• “Blessed are the pure in Heart, for they shall see God.”
• “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.”
You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt have lost its savour, where with shall it be salted? Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an Hill cannot be hid. Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works. Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets, I am come not to destroy but to fulfill, Till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing, let your communication be, yea, yea. Resit not evil, But
whosoever shall smite thee on they right cheek, turn to him the other also. He maketh the sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. When thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth. Use not vain repetitions; as the heathen do, for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. After this manner therefore, pray ye.
“Our Father, who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name, they kingdom come. They will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever, Amen. Lay not up for yourself treasures, upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven. Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. No man can serve two masters. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow, they toil not, neither do they spin, and yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in afi his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Judge not, that ye be not judged. Why beholdest thou the mote that is in they brother’s eye, but considered not the bean that is in thine own eye. Neither cast ye your pearls before swine. Ask, and it shall be given you, seek and ye shall find, knock, and it shall be Opened unto you. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask for bread, will he give him stone? Wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be that go in there as straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves. By their fruits, ye shall know them. I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me, and I say to this man, go and he goeth, and to another, come, and he cometh, and to my servant, do this, and he doeth it. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, the son of man hath not where to lay his head, let the dead bury the dead, Sitting at the receipt of custom. Why eateth your master with publicans and sinners. Neither do men put new wine into old bottles. When you depart, out of that House or City, shake off the dust of your feet. Be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. The very hairs of your head are all numbered. I came not to send peace, but a sword. He that findeth his life shall lose it, and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of the disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward. What went ye out into the wilderness to see, a reed shaken with the wind.
We have piped into and you have not danced, and have mourned unto yo and ye have not lamented. Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. He that is not with me is against me. Empty, sweep and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwellthere, and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Some seeds fell by the way side. An enemy had done this. The kingdom of Heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed. One pearl of great price, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. They be blind leaders of the blind, And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. The dogs eats the crumbs which fall from their masters table. The signs of the times.
Thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Get thee behind me, Satan. What is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? If ye have faith as a grain of mustered seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove. Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven. But whose shall offend of those little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the dept of the sea. If thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
What God therefore hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Thou shalt love they neighbour as thyself. It is easier for the head of a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. With men this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible. But many that are first shall be last, and the last shall be first. Borne the burden and heat of the day. I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. Is not lawful for me to do what I will with my own. For many are called, but few are chosen. Render therefore unto ceaser the things which are ceaser’s. Blind guides, which strain at a gnat and swallow a camel. Whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead man’s bones. War’s and rumours are wars. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
Abomination of desolation. Wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagle be gathered together. Well done, thou good and faithful servant. Unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance, but from him that hath not shall be but from him that hath not shall be taken away that which he hath. I was a stranger and ye took me in, Naked and ye clothed me, I was sick, and ye visited me, I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Insomuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. The good Sheppard giveth his life for the sheep. It is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. It is more blessed to give than to receive. Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. The powers that be are ordained of God.
Now it is high time to awake out of sleep, for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand, let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. For the fruit of spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. Be not deceived. God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out fear. If a man say, I love God, and hatered his brother, he is a liar, for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Furthermore, the Bible has expressed itself in numerous ways – through proverbs, idioms, direct and indirect statements and expressions etc. let him who have ears hear, “For whom these teachings elevate not, is not worthy to be a human being”. What does a man tasty of knowledge do but to put on his armoury coal- of knowledge in full preparedness to face the narrow road of eternity and no more the expressway of turbulence, for enough is enough for riddles and jokes – Now for real business on how to go back home, back to our original home – The eternal spiritual world – full of bliss, knowledge and eternity. The entire people of the world are meant to realize that the great journey to eternity is individually and collectively. That is where individual and collective Karma comes in. And that becomes a key reason why eternity seems to be a long journey. Really it is and at the same time, it is’nt. As you make your bed, so you’ll lie on it. Time and tide waits for no one. Finally, No nation is the greatest in the true face of God. Otherwise let us draw a lesson from that Great City Babylon – Babylon is fallen, Babylon is fallen, The great Babylon is fallen.
Many nation of the world are just existing based on the above vices. These dreadful vices are swiftly circulating at breakneck speed among nations. Instead of finding solutions not just from spiritual knowledge which is common amongst men, solutions should be sought through spiritual science. Spiritual science involves every one, no matter the class or creed the other may belong and that will bring permanent solutions. And not the present material science that is full of imperfection and does not in any form assure the security and sanitation of nations of the world. We can see the world today. Catastrophes, calamities and blood shed. All these lead to insanity which in turn leads to in-security. What affects one nation may affect another just in no time. Quo VADIS – where do we go from here
– that culture called Spiritual Science is the answer for every TOM, DICK AND HARRY. Seek for that higher knowledge, and it shall be given unto you.
