The Bible study Saturday on a Friday!!!!
So funny to take a look back from where this Bible Study all began. I Pray others enjoy this look back.
When GOD was first calling me to begin the Bible Study I was having a difficult times coming to grips with how to even begin. Thankful GOD is so patient with us and gives us guidance. I believe we started out with BLOGS and grew into videos and so on.
Below is the primary post from the Facebook page back in 2019.
I Pray others enjoy…… GOD BLESS the Process and Progress… AMEN and AMEN
Praise God on High!
Thank you, God for blessings us with another day. Thank you, God, for allowing us to wake up this morning and receive your word. Thank you, God, for covering us in our sleeping life and shielding us from the enemies attacks. Thank you, God , for your Angels, who come to our sleeping life. Thank you, God, for revealing to us our mission of this life. We pray that we complete our mission and in so doing; we be welcomed in the bosom of God, Yeshua, and the Holy Spirit. Forever and ever. We pray this in the loving name of your begotten Son Yeshua Jesus Christ. Amen.
Book of Matthew 5: 13-19
Jesus Yeshua Christ our Lord and Savior, sermon on the mount continued:
13. You are the salt of the earth
I wanted to make sure I stayed true to the Biblical text explanation on this one. Because when I first thought of “salt of the earth”, honestly I thought of a juicy steak. mmm mmm mmm.
It’s funny how God can lead our thoughts and the Holy Spirit can move us in such away; we can find how everything connected.
So. salt of course we remember from maybe our educational times has always been use for preservation. Preservation not only of food from spoil, but of the bodies during preparation of burials. Salt, was so important for preserving food in even medieval times, usually only the very rich or well-off financially could afford this luxury item.
Now, what I feel aI’ am being lead to communicate is how in Yeshua saying we are “the Salt of the earth”. Yeshua is communicating to each and every person how very important they are not only to earth, but to God. God being the Almighty father, loves each and everyone of his children. Even the spoiled children,”who have lost their favor”. Possibly translating to those “lost of flavor.”……..favor with God; for turning for God and God’s ways/commandments.
WHAT!!!! My mind is blown…….
So if we are the salt of the earth…..we are what is important to this earth. God created the earth. We as children of God have power and authority here on earth. God has gifted us this earth to care for…what is the best way in which God’s children can care for a gift…..taking care of that gift…loving our gift…being gentle with our gift…
Think about it…as parents or someone who gives a gift to someone; would we like if the other miss treated our gift? No. Would we feel appreciated if the gift was discarded in the trash or regifted? No. If when handing over our gift the receiver of the gift stomped on the gift? No. I’m sure many of us would be quite pissed off or sad. So stay with me…….Does the Bible not say God has gifted us children..as a blessing? Does the Bible not say “we” meaning everyone…are salt of the earth? Does the Bible not say God is the giver of life?
SO lets put this all together:
We are the salt of the earth. This might suggest it is our job to take care of the earth. It is our job to spread the gospel. It is our job to remain pure and righteous in-order to keep in covenant with God. God has giving us many gifts and blessings, to include children. It is our jobs and as commanded by the Lord our God; to protect the children of this world; on the earth and in the womb. God knows each of each before we are in a=our mothers womb. We are GOd’s most prize possessions. We are God’s luxury items; so to speak. Anyone we destroys God’s gifts(meaning children, other Christians, and or God’s commandments, by perverting others or the Gospels ) is committing treason unto God.
Woooo…deep I know…blew my mind like I said. Can I just say since I have started studying and researching the Bible how I have been lead to by God….my heart is so amazed how much God truly loves us. It makes me sad sometimes to think how many of his creations have let him down. But then I think about how many of us make God so very proud. So that makes it better.
This lead me to thinking, salt is important to the body. Is this possible an indication of how important we as children of God are so very important to the body of Christ?
Can we exist with out the presence of salt? Can our bodies function with out the proper level of salt to water levels in our bodies? This link below explains the critical need of salt and water balance in our bodies.
So stay with me..and let’s put this all together.
Righteous=closeness to God
Closeness to God= peace, love, abundance in all things, for-filment, LIFE.
Salt losing its taste:
Salt going bad? Honestly, I have never heard of salt being able to go bad, so I had to look this up as well.
I know this may sound odd, but I just never thought os salt going bad.
What I was able to find might explain and also lend to a possible connection with Wednesday 20 February, 2019, Bible Study post. Specifically the Blessed are the righteous, Blessed are the pure of heart, and Blessed are the meek. All these that are considered to be blessed have a core common factor; being free from alterations and or contaminates. These blessed listed above have had enough discipline to avoid the evil ones lies and temptations of easy pleasures that are temporary/. Temporary, Yes…because we all know or should know when the evil ones want to recoup what has been given often there is pain , suffering, depression, and or death as the price. Which repenting with a full heavy and humble heart to God can only bring salvation and accepting Yeshua Jesus Christ into ones life can bring forth forgiveness and everlasting life. Now, the part of salt going bad being thrown out and trampled on, might mean thou forgive, one with most certainly have to be held accountable on earth and by God for ones sins. Just as those in the Bible who went against God were held accountable, although they had repented. So one might ask whats the point of repenting if one will/might still might have to face judgement? That is a good question. The only answer I can offer at this time while I await answer from God are: Since God is the ultimate forgiving Father and we are his children; he most likely loves us just as we love our children. Let’s think about when our child has disobeys; how do we act? How do we respond? How do we try an ensure our child has learned their lesson so they do not make the same mistake in the future? We forgive them..yes. But they still most likely have to be grounded, have something taken away, stand in time out, for those who spank…spank them. (for the record Im not evicted spanking Im merely giving examples, nor am I trying to tell anyone how to discipline their child). My point is God forgiveness maybe free, but he is also a just and fair God. This means justice and fairness to all his children. So those of his children who harm his other children are still loved, but will need to be made to learn their lesson to hopefully not harm God’s children again. IF they don’t learn their lesson after being given the chance to obey…well we can all guess what might happen then.
14. You are the light of the world
Yeshua tells us over and over how loved and important we are to God.
We are the light. Shining in the dark. Something that can always be seen. Something that can always be found. Something many search from to feel comforted during trying times. WOW!!!
God is such as wonderful loving father!!!
We as God children able capable of bring so much happiness. We are capable of bring so much joy to others. We as God children as the ones who can conquer the darkness. It makes me sad to think how so many have forgotten this. In the news I see so often those who have polluted themselves with drugs, dangerous activities, altered themselves for the shake of seeking earthly perfection; instead of seeking closeness with God. I am in no way saying the God’s people don’t face trails. No. But I haven’t seen God’s people face the type and disappear those how are very earthy face. I am sure many are going to mention the Christians being murdered all over the world, for not denouncing God. Yes, this is true. Did God not say blessed are those who die for righteous sake.? Did not not say blessed are those who are persecuted for my sake? These is a huge difference being attacked for having a relationship with God and literally putting poison in oneself and suffering and or diving as a result. Those who are murdered as th Prophets for the sake of the kingdom receive the reward in/of heaven. Those who choose the ways of the evil ones, well they receive judgement by God.
God calls us to be not only good to him, but good to his children.
I would like to mention something else ones may not have thought about.
Those who are walking in the true ways of God and living Godly lives; have a light about them. I remember when I got baptized and reborn; I was told often I seemed different. Many at work didn’t know that pass weekend I had been baptized. Talking about my relationship with God wasn’t a topic supported at work. What was my job I was in the military. Often times when I would read my Bible at work during waiting time, which there was a lot of….I was yelled at…be little…etc. to the point sad to admit I stopped reading my Bible in public. Fast forward to being baptized, I didn’t tell anyone. And I didn’t feel comfortable telling anyone. It was just a wonderful moment I shared with those present at the time of the baptism and a close family member. I know sad, but Christian faith is being attack everywhere in the military. To continue, my co-workers would say there was something different about me. I seemed to have a brightnesses about me. Many thought I was trying a new tanning method. lol I know the difference. I was so amazed people could see the transformation I felt inside. The love and acceptance in/of a relationship with God. Not to say I didn’t fall of the wagon from time to fit after I was baptized, but I was at least on the path to righteousness.
15. Light the candle for house and all
I want to type the full verse for this one because I feel it is very important.
“No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lamp stand and it gives light to al in the house”
This may translate to after one has receive the light and love God and or from God, one should not keep this to themselves, but instead share it with everyone. The while house.
So if this is the case why should we as Christians feel the need to be politically correct and hide our faith. Why have we as Christians been made to feel a shamed of our relationship with God.
I’ll say why…..The evil ones has its plans and sadly many Christian have given ground to the plans of the evil ones. How?
Removing God from schools
Now our light does not shine in schools.
Now our churches are quite about the evil acts against Christians or political issues
you all may not know this, but I volunteer quite often with several churches. Do you all know I was confronted by a couple of churches goers who heard about this Bible study? Do you know they had the Neve to try and tell me I shouldn’t write about politics issues ? or share political news on other social medias? YEs they did….Me being me….nope not having it. I basically told them the=is is exactly why I am a Bible Study and not a church. Because God is the HEAD of my relationship and not the State or the Federal Government. No one in no way will buy my silence. And if that was the way they felt they could unsubscribe. Needless to say they didn’t like my response. And to be quite honest I don’t care. In Biblical times Kings and Leaders looked to the Prophets for guidance in all matters. Those leaders who had a relationship with God flourished. Those leaders who didn’t have God as the head of their country well, rain of fire, plaques, famine….
So no thank you..
I will forever shine God light that is n me forever and always.
This is exactly why the devil doesn’t want Christian products, music, talks, speeches, to be public. The devil knows others who are currently not living a Godly life will be attracted out of the darkness into the light. So I say let’s be with God and let that bright light shine!!!!!!!!
16. Light shine before men
Yes!!!!! Let our good works shine so that others will see what having a relationship God can do for their lives.
This is what I am talking about.
Salt of the earth
Light in the darkness.
Praise God every and any where!!!
When others see us they should know,”Hey, that person is of God.”
17. Yeshua has not come to destroy law, but to fulfill
God made flesh was not to abolish the word of the Prophets nor to abolish and law, but to fulfill the promise of God. God always keeps his promise. Sounds similar to “Promise made. Promise kept.” consequences…maybe..maybe not
God made a convenient with Adam and Eve that he would come to the world as flesh and bleed for our salvation then raise again on the 3rd day. Only then would Adam, Eve and this decedents be allowed back into heaven and not a minute before. Yeshua (god in the flesh, was the fulfillment of this promise) What a great loving God we serve.
18. Until all is fulfill heaven and earth pass
This is a very important verse also.
“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pat, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all fulfilled.”
19. Those how break commandments and teach others to break commandments
Let us pray.
I pray, for the safety over our POTUS, PATRIOTS(world wide), Q, Q+++++, Prophets, and fellow Christians. I pray, everyone be cover by the blood of Yeshua and God will be done. I pray, for the removal of every corrupt person/leaders in any position of power and authority. I pray those who harm and abuse those who depend on them and or aid them; be taken out of those positions and replaced with Christian and true Patriots of nations. I pray God keeps everyone safe and blessed.
