Matt 23:13-33(In Pictures)

Matt 23:13 Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.(vs 14)Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.(vs15)Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

Matt 23:16 Woe to you, blind guides! You say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gold of the temple is bound by that oath.(vs17)You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred?(vs18) You also say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gift on the altar is bound by that oath.(vs19)You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred?(vs20)Therefore, anyone who swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it.(vs21)And anyone who swears by the temple swears by it and by the one who dwells in it.(vs22)And anyone who swears by heaven swears by God’s throne and by the one who sits on it.

And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.

And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.

Matt 23:23 Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.(vs24)You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.(vs25)Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence.(vs26)Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

Matt 23:27 Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.(vs28)In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.(vs29)Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous.(vs30)And you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead [men's] bones, and of all uncleannes

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead [men’s] bones, and of all uncleannes

Matt 23:31 So you testify against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets.(vs32)Go ahead, then, and complete what your ancestors started!(vs33)You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?

[Ye] serpents, [ye] generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

[Ye] serpents, [ye] generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

Forgiveness for Offenders by Lester Sumrall.

While we are thinking about Jesus’ teachings on Sex, we should take special note of the way he forgave Sex Offenders. He shows us once again that God is ready to welcome back anyone who repents of sin- even a Sexual Sin.

When Jesus traveled through the region of Samaria, he stopped at a well to get a drink. A woman came to dip her jar in the well, an Jesus struck up a conversation with her. This was highly unusual because Jews had a deep resentment of the Samaritans, who were a mixed breed, half-jew an half-gentile. But Jesus was so interested in this woman’s soul that he didn’t let racial differences stand in the way. He talked to her. And after discussing theology for a few minutes, Jesus said “Go call your husband, an come here” John 4:16.

The woman must have smiled as she said “I have no husband” “You have well said, “I have no husband”’” Jesus replied for you have had 5 husbands, an the 1 whom you have now is not your husband; in that you spoke truly vs18.

Notice that Jesus didn’t condemn her for her sin. He didn’t shame her for what she had done. But he did confront her with the truth; he told her point blank that her sex life needed to be Straightened out. He let her know that he was well aware of her promiscuous life, an he wanted her to come clean before God.

Earlier I mentioned the incident in which a woman anointed Jesus’ feet with tears(Luke 7:36-50). The bible simply says that she was a woman in the city who was a sinner in vs 37. The Bib;e commentator Charles L. Childers says “Such an expression as this in the N.T terminology, means a prostitute” Dr Childers interpretation seems confirmed by the way the Pharisees reacted to this woman.They said”This man if He were a Prophet, would have known who & what manner of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner” vs 39.

The Pharisees were careful students of the Law. They didn’t want to defile themselves by touching anyone who had violated God’s Commandments. So they would have nothing to do with the woman. But Observe Jesus’ Attitude. He watched her kneel at His Feet & weep unashamedly in front of all the men; then she let her long hair down, an used it to wipe his feet with her tears. Jesus had compassion on her, He could see through her sin of Prostitution & discern her needs of her heart. So he Said “Your Sins are Forgiven…Your faith has saved you, go in peace” verses 48 & 50. The master expositor Matthew Henry writes:

Let who will object, Christ will bid the penitent that applies to him to depart in peace, partaking of salvation through faith in His Name. But may we not with shame confess, that while we hope our offenses are freely pardoned, we love but little?….Instead of grudging greater sinners the mercy they find with Christ upon their repentance, we should be stirred up by their example to examine ourselves, whether we are indeed forgiven, and do love Christ.

This is God’s grace as work. By no means do we see Jesus treat sexual offenses in a casual half hearted way.(Personal note:but we do see this half hardheartedness in todays courts).He takes sin seriously, but he also takes repentance seriously. Whenever a sex offender comes to Him & says “Lord, I am sorry for what I’ve done;”Jesus is ready to forgive.(P.N:Unlike todays courts & D.O.J), He is ready to forget the Offense of the Prostitute, the adulterer, the homosexual, or the person guilty of any other Sexual Offense(P.N:Unlike the Bitterness & Greeds of the courts today). Sexual Sins are very grave matters in God’s Sight; but He is just as willing to forgive the Sex Offender as He is to forgive the smallest of Sin of a Godly Person.

Christ can make something beautiful of your life. No matter what your sins have been- even if you have been sexually immoral in the Vilest way-Jesus stands ready to forgive you & cleanse you of your sin. He can wipe the evil deeds & evil thoughts out of your life forever, if you give him a chance.

 

The Schizophrenic Government:Demonizing The People They Serve.

Often when you think of Schizophrenic, the picture comes to mind of someone in the Insane Asylum, Let’s also look at a Paranoid Schizophrenic Government.

Where the People of the Government especially in Leadership Positions get so Paranoid like a Schizophrenic.

Because they fail to criticize themselves for the Nation Falling Apart, they turn to Demonize the People they are meant to Serve.

The same thing Happened in Christ’s Time, as they accused Christ of doing Works by the Devil.

Yet all throughout the Old & New Testament, God showed alot of His Rebukes went to Leaders Of The Land.

So todays Leaders are Demonizing the People of CRIMES they are Guilty Of, Not only Directly, but also Indirectly.

Why Jesus was so harsh on the Leaders of His Day, because many had gone into a Delusional State Of Mind, they lost all Soundness even in Govt & Leaders underneath them.

The Same is seen today but in greater scale especially in Govt & Leadership underneath them, that they have forgotten to clean their own house & laws, an made idols to worship of themselves.

So the Question comes up, will things get better or worse?

Scripture in Old & New Testament shows things will get worse, inc. in The Govt & Leaders underneath them will go into greater & greater Delusional Paranoid Schizophrenia, having More & More People Demonized, whether linked to an addiction or Not.

It will reflect Hitlers Reich, not only in Subtle Ways, but also in ways it will show in Public.

Hitlers SS has been Revived, using a Different Name, but the Same Mask.

Hitlers SS Targeted Jews, The Disabled with all types of disabilities, bringing up any excuse to Murder them Off, treated as Scum of the Earth, thrown into Jail, executed by Firing Squad & Murdered in Gas Chambers, cold heartedly an without Remorse.

The same is happening in these days an compassion is like it doesn’t exist anymore over the World. inc. Australia.

The Protections of them, Treated like they don’t exist, an accused for crimes the Govt & Leaders created, used as Lambs to the Slaughter, an Scapegoats for the Leaders Crimes against Humanity.

As Govt Delusion continues to grow it will submit itself fully into the System & Mindset of the Anti-Christ targeting all Christians & Jews, not caring what you look like or background, or where abouts you are in your Relationship with God.

I write this Not only as a Lamb led to the Slaughter, but also as a Scapegoat.

Even though I shall continue to Trust In God & Love Him, An Thank Him for Jesus Christ an for the Holy Spirit.

The World Mocks God.

With God, All Things Are Possible.

 

Vipers in the Seat Of Moses:Jesus rebukes the Leaders of Iniquity that hide behind the Law.

I’m sure your wondering, what is the seat of Moses, the seat of Moses was seen as the chiefest or Head Seat, not only with the Sanhedrin(Which established laws of the land), but it also covered local law as well.

We see reference to this in Matt 23 where Jesus rebukes Leaders of Iniquity that hide behind the Very Laws they have Created.

Jesus shows even though they have created laws by which they try to Hide from God’s Wrath, He shows they can Hide Nothing from God.

From chapt 23:2-6 we see Jesus showing you how much Pride these Leaders of Iniquity love to Sit in the Seat of Judgment(whether they be Judges,Police Officers or even the Writers of Laws of Iniquity that also protect them of their Crimes on the community), he then states do & observe what is asked of you, He then shows those who gave these Laws of Iniquity they say to you not to do it, but they themselves do it already behind closed doors.

In verse 4 He shows they bind heaven burdens, an make scapegoats of innocent people, by laying their crimes onto Innocent shoulders, but they are too lazy to repent of their Injustice, verse 5 they Pride themselves to be Seen & Worshiped By men, an do anything to increase there reputation in there community, verse 6 shows their Pride is so Poisonous they want to be at the Top.

In verse 13 we see the Beginning of Woes for these Leaders of Iniquity that Hide Behind the Law.

He says they shut up the Kingdom of Heaven against all men, an they themselves are to cowardly to enter in.

Verse 14 Jesus shows these Lawless leaders are Greed Driven that they would devour or take away the housing of widows which could be expanded into falsely accusing others disabled or not for Earthly Gain.

Verse 15 Jesus shows how desperate these Leaders are to try an convert someone to their own laws of iniquity, an in the Process there actions create Monsters they feared.(they condition & brainwash them to be things that they aren’t).

Verse 16 Jesus says they are Blind Guides because the things they make Oaths to are to Make a Profit, an this Profit creates Debt.

Jumping to verse 23 Jesus shows these Leaders of Iniquity pay lip service to God, an have Taken away God’s Law, Righteous Judgments, Mercy & Faith, that they have left them all Undone.

The Next Woe in verse 25 He shows how externally they make themselves look Perfect to People around them, but the Truth is this is a Falseness in their character because they are full of Extortion & Excess, they will do anything to make a Profit for Earthly Gain. Inc. Mistreatment of the Public.

Verse 27 Shows they are Likened unto a Glorified Memorial Tomb, which appears beautiful, but inwardly are full of Dead Mens Bones, an they are completely Unclean, they show themselves to be righteous, their complete character is one of Hypocrisy & Iniquity.

Verse 29-35 Jesus shows that these Leaders of Iniquity are Hypocrites because they try to live off the Righteousness of those, which they have Shed Innocent Blood by their Laws of Iniquity.

He says they are Serpents & Vipers, Serpents because they Legally Strangled the community by their Laws of Iniquity & Vipers because they Poisoned many & Killed many by their actions, by Mistreatment off all Innocent, Disabled or Not.

Verse 35 Jesus shows in fullness they have Shed Innocent Blood inc. The Blood of the Righteous. By their actions they Have Dishonored God & His Kingdom.

All these things Jesus Addressed are showing their Head today, even in Australia, an all these Woes apply to All Leaders of Iniquity today that they can Hide behind the Laws they have created to hide from God’s Judgment on them.

With Christ Jesus wisdom it not only Exposes the Dept of Justice in these Days, but also Politics.

The Leaders of Iniquity want the Public to be honest with them, but the Leaders of Iniquity won’t accept the Blame for their Dishonest Actions they have done to the Public & Be Honest not only to the Public, but also to themselves because they Pride in Lip Service, which has harmed so Many Directly & Indirectly.

Resistance is Futile:Hostility to Those Heavenly Bound.

Scripture speaks that the Kingdom of Heaven suffereth Violence,  so those connected to the Kingdom of God, also suffer this Violence an Hostility By the Devil & his Kingdom.

The Devil’s Hostility attacks us, where it hurts us the Most.

Just as God knows our Weaknesses, He also Knows our Strength.

As Mankind, we are all weak in our Flesh, we all suffer weaknesses, don’t often know how to walk in our Strengths.

Weakness can be found in All Areas, High & Low, Rich & Poor.

So what are examples of weakness, all of these are able to be treated.

Addictions are a weakness, it doesn’t matter what the addiction is, it can disable a persons ability an lose focus of things around them.

To Lose Focus is also a loss of direction, an leads us astray from our original path, by loss of focus, we also ignore the signs that are in front of us, which takes us into The Devil’s Hostile Grounds, where he has laid down Traps for us to fall into, An the Devil/Satan himself doesn’t care Who or What he uses, He is able to even use Earthly Authorities to target the Destruction of the Body.

Scripture says Fear Not, who can destroy the Body, but fear him who can destroy both Body & Soul.

Now Fear is a Neutral word, meaning it can be used for Good, by God & can be used for Evil, by the Devil/Satan.

When God uses Fear, He is also able to instill fear in the heart of the Children of Darkness, those who Represent Satan.

Those who are Anti-Christ, Anti-God, Anti-Israel, tremble & fear it, it can occur on many levels.

  1. Is Spiritually
  2. Physically
  3. Mentally
  4. Sub Conscience

 Those who are in Christ, in the Kingdom of God, the Devil/Satan uses his Fear on the Same levels as above, we also see the Negative used.

  1. Satan Manipulates us
  2. He lies to us about certain feelings.
  3. He steals from us our Innocence.
  4. He violates us in Mind, Body & Soul.
  5. He then turns this fear on God’s Creation to Destroy it.
  6. He Ends it with Death.

Scripture says The Devil/Satan was a Murderer from the Beginning of All time.

Jesus says that he comes to give us Life & Life in Abundance.

By Jesus showing us, there is Power in giving Someone Life to Live,It is the Most Dangerous Thing the Devil/Satan Fears.

For in Christ is also the Key to Eternal Life, Spiritually & Physically.

Jesus also says He is The Resurrection & The Life, another thing which the Devil & his minions, not only Spiritually, but those who are his on earth also fear.

Like many who ask what is the Meaning of Life?

The Better question to ask is What is the Source of Life?

That source is God, Jesus Christ & the Holy Spirit.

Without this source, we don’t exist.

No man on Earth is Able to Frame The Human Body from dust to bone, to flesh, with a Living Soul & Spirit, Which Sparks us to Life.

They will Keep trying, but keep failing because Mankind is trying to Replace God, so they can hold no Accountability to Him, with what corruption they move to Next.

So if you to make an put the Devil in Fear, Give Life, So they can Live it in Abundance, Show them Life, Show them how to Live, without the Prison of Death which the Devil wants all to Fall into.

There are Many Captives in this World to the Devil’s Devices, Set Them Free, with what Jesus Christ Gives:

Life, an In Abundance..

 

The Law Of The Land Verses Jesus Christ

The Pharisees & Sadducee’s in the Time of Christ were both apart of the Sanhedrin which Established the Law Of The Land, whilst bringing in Laws not Lining Up with God’s Word.

Today we see the same Problems with the Laws of the Land today as in the time Christ was dealing with those of the Law in this Day.

Those of the Law of the Land were quick to Judge in Jesus Christ’s time, doing all they could to usurp themselves over God’s Authority, inc. God’s Authority through Christ.

So like those of the Law of the Land today, they tried to Trap Christ so they could consider themselves as The Superiors.

They Showed No Compassion to those who had Broken the Law, Where the Letter Killeth, but the Spirit Gives Life.

Hero Wanted:The Call For Help

When younger we all had our Heroes, whether it be from Movies Old to New, inc. Television Heroes.

These Heroes stood out to us as People of Justice, Some Heroes had Powers, Others had Awesome Gadgets.

But None could ever defeat the Cause of All Evil or Redeem Mankind.

So many of the Heroes had to Live Double Lives whether Male or Female.

So how about a Hero, Not scared of his Identity being revealed, who was an has the Power to Redeem Mankind from Evil an comes with the Promise of the Big Bonus of Eternal Life.

This Hero isn’t a mythical figure, but they will do their best to make Counterfeits.

This Hero is as real as You or Me, an knows us better than we know Ourselves.

This Hero:

Sets The Captives Free, Redeems Us, Forgives Us, can open the eyes of the Blind, Restore the Lame, the maimed made whole, He Loves the Unlovable, an sees beyond what any Man on this Earth can see.

He knows the existence of the Spiritual World, He sees it’s affect on the Physical, an the Origin of Sin.

His Power is Unlimited, but holds to what he has Laid in the Foundation of All Creation.

This Hero is Jesus Christ, King Of Israel.

He showed compassion to All, His Love extends beyonds Earth Atmosphere. John 3:16-19.

He Dealt with the Authoritative Hypocrites of His Day. Matt 23, Matt 7.

He Fed the Hungry, The Poor & Needy.

He gave Authority to people considered Worthless. Mark 6.

His Word not only bought Internal Healing, but also an outward change.

He Showed Us The Father. John 14.

He is More Righteous & Just than any Judge here on Earth.

He forgave people who needed forgiveness, inc to people who we think don’t need forgiveness.

He walked on Water & Calmed the Storms.

He is The Lamb Of God, Who takes away the Sins of the World.

He was whipped, Crucified, placed into a tomb an rose on the 3rd day, was seen by His Apostles, an upto 500 witnesses.

On top of that he has affected so many lives of people born into a Sinful Corrupt World, an Changed Their Lives with His Awesome Power.

In these days People of Society Spit Upon Christ an those who Follow Him, like we are a disease, an willing to work with the Anti-Christ to Bring Railing Accusations to Destroy the Work of God in their Lives.

The Heart of many in Mankind have Waxed Ice Cold, those who haven’t succumb to this, yet live daily at there Best to Serve God.

With the Crossfire within Society it makes it the Perfect Battlefield for Satan to do His Worst.

From Wars & Rumours of Wars, Deception is on the increase, affecting the Highest of High From Politics & Law, the List Goes On.

An the Internet as much as it can be used for Good, is the Best thing Satan could to Use to Deceive, Lure & Bait, God’s Children. 

But God, Jesus Christ & The Holy Spirit aren’t fooled by the Enemies Deception in these Days.

He even in these days Knows the Enemies Plan Better than those of us here on Earth Knows, better than even what the Enemy knows Himself(Satan).

God Loves His Children, an also Plans to Redeem then By His Power, Whether this World likes it or Not.

Come meet my Hero, His Name is Jesus Christ, an Let Him Change Your Life, as He has Many Others.

Hercules won’t save you, Superman can’t save you, Ironman has nothing but useless gadgets, Wonder Womans Invisible plane won’t save you, Buddha can’t do nothing He is dead, Mohammad is with the Worms,

But Jesus Christ Rose From The Dead.
