4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. [Blessed are those who mourn because they are slaves to sin, because they have no control over their emotions. Blessed are those who mourn because they have waited on and listened to the Holy Spirit, who shows them how they are slaves to sin, locked in selfishness, captive to lusts, and in bondage to their emotions, for they shall be comforted; for the same Holy Spirit of grace, both shows a man his sins and then removes them, purifying for himself a people who are his very own, zealous for good works. And: Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. Luke 6:21. But: Woe to you who laugh now! For you shall mourn and weep. Luke 6:25. You must hate your worldly life in order to be motivated to lose your worldly life and thereby find the superior life of God.]
25 Woe to you who are full! For you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now! For you shall mourn and weep.2
7 To those who by perseverance in good works,2 seek for glory, honor, and immortality, he will give eternal life. [Remember this verse. In order to protect their make-believe Christianity, Christendom deliberately ignores this verse; they ignore the distinction between works of the law and good works. Works of the law count for nothing. Works of the law are the cereal offering, the lamb offering, the bull offering, washings, not eating certain foods, circumcision, tithing, sabbaths, celebration of days, festivals, etc.; these are dead works of the law, decided when to be done by the carnal mind and will of man. Good works are works of love for God and your fellow man, beginning with repentance from evil, which is love of the truth.]
|Psalms 40:8||Romans 7:22|
22 For I delighted in the law of God in the internal inner man.
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them by faith from a long way off, and were convinced of them, and embraced them, confessing that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
14 For those who say such things, declare plainly that they seek a better land.
15 And truly, if they had been mindful of the land from where they originated, they would have had opportunity to have returned.
16 But they desired a better land, that is, a heavenly home. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God because he has prepared a city for them.
|Romans 1:25-30 |
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up to dishonorable passions, for their women exchanged the natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.
27 And likewise the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed in their passions for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 And since they did not want to retain God in their knowledge, God abandoned them to an impure mind, to do those things which are not proper;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; gossipers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
