Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. MT 1:23 JESUS Is God

In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, MT 3:1 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. MT 3:2 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias [Isaiah], saying, The voice of one crying [out WU] in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of [for WU] the Lord, make his paths straight. MT 3:3 REPENT

And were baptized of [by] him in [the]  Jordan [river WU], confessing their sins. MT 3:6 REPENT

O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? MT 3:7 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for [in keeping with WU] repentance: MT 3:8 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to [for] our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of [from] these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. MT 3:9 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Pride And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. MT 3:10 APPLY Fruit Essential I indeed baptize you with water unto [for] repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear [carry]: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost [Spirit], and with fire: MT 3:11 GOD IN US APPLY Not Easy Whose fan [winnowing fork] is in his hand, and he will throughly purge [clear WU]  his [threshing] floor, and gather his wheat into the garner [barn]; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. MT 3:12 JUDGEMENT By Christ

(Repent, confess your harmfulness, prepare the way for the Lord to come into your life. A godly heritage won't save you. If you don't produce good fruit, (apply the principles), you will be thrown into hell. Those who repent will be cleansed by and given life in the Holy Spirit, but will also pass through trials.)

Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of [by] him. MT 3:13 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? MT 3:14 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer [allow]  it to be so now: for thus it becometh us [is proper WU] to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. MT 3:15 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: MT 3:16 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. MT 3:17

Then was Jesus led up of [by] the spirit [Spirit] into the wilderness to be tempted of [by] the devil. MT 4:1

It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. MT 4:4 PRINCIPLES

It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt [put to the test WU] the Lord thy God. MT 4:7 BELIEVE Growing

Get thee hence [away from me WU], Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. MT 4:10 WORSHIP

(Escape temptation through being mindful of the written principles, believing, and worshiping the Lord.)

Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. REPENT

  Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. CARRY GOSPEL


(Repent and follow Jesus, and then call others to repent and follow Jesus.)

he went up into a mountain
: and when he was set [had sat down], his disciples came unto him: MT 5:1 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, MT 5:2

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. MT 5:3 CHARACTER BLESSINGS Heaven

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. MT 5:4 BLESSINGS Peace

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. MT 5:5 CHARACTER BLESSINGS A Full Life

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. MT 5:6 CHARACTER BLESSINGS A Full Life

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. MT 5:7 CHARACTER BLESSINGS Peace

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. MT 5:8 CHARACTER BLESSINGS Heaven

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. MT 5:9 CHARACTER GOD IN US

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. MT 5:10 PERSECUTION Hate

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile [reproach] you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake [because of me WU]. MT 5:11 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. MT 5:12 PERSECUTION Misjudged

(Blessings come through godly character in spite of the persecution that having it brings.)

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour [flavor], wherewith [with what] shall it be salted [made salty again WU]? it is thenceforth [then] good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of [by WU] men. MT 5:13

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. MT 5:14 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel [measuring basket], but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. MT 5:15 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. MT 5:16 CARRY GOSPEL Don't Hold Back

(Jesus fulfills the Law and the Prophets.)

Think not that I am come to destroy [do away with WU] the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. MT 5:17 JESUS Teacher For verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle [smallest letter or pen stroke] shall in no wise [way] pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. MT 5:18

Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men [to do] so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. MT 5:19 APPLY God's Will For I say unto you, That except [unless] your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes [experts in the law WU] and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. MT 5:20

(Broadcast the principles as you apply them yourself.)

Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill [murder]; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: MT 5:21 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. MT 5:22 RELATIONS Problems

Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought [anything] against thee; MT 5:23 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. MT 5:24 RELATIONS Problems

Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in [on] the way with him [to court WU]; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. MT 5:25 RELATIONS Problems Verily [most assuredly] I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence [of there], till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing [last penny]. MT 5:26

(Relationship problems are caused by the bad things we do from the harmfulness in our hearts.)

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: MT 5:27 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. MT 5:28 And if thy right eye offend thee [causes you to sin WU], pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable [better WU] for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. MT 5:29 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Bad To Do And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. MT 5:30

(Looking at women lustfully leads you into hell.)

It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away [divorce WU] his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: MT 5:31 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away [divorce WU]  his wife, saving for the cause of fornication [sexual immorality], causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. MT 5:32 RELATIONS Divorce

(You may really have to get a handle on the harmfulness in your heart in order not to get divorced.)

Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself [make false vows], but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: MT 5:33 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: MT 5:34 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. MT 5:35 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. MT 5:36 But let your communication be, Yea, yea [yes]; Nay, nay [no]: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil [from the evil one WU]. MT 5:37 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Bad To Do

(Don't swear by God, heaven, or anything else, simply say 'yes' or 'no'.)

Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: MT 5:38 But I say unto you, That ye resist not [him who is] evil: but whosoever shall smite [strike] thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. MT 5:39 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. MT 5:40 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain [two]. MT 5:41 PERSECUTION Love the Harmer Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. MT 5:42 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Money & Worldly Things

(The harmer may take away your worldly things, burden you, or attack your dignity.)

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. MT 5:43 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use [mistreat] you, and persecute you; MT 5:44 PERSECUTION Love the Harmer That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. MT 5:45 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans [tax collectors] the same? MT 5:46 And if ye salute [greet] your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans [tax collectors WU] so? MT 5:47 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. MT 5:48 APPLY Not Easy

(So it's not easy because now you must lovingly offer yourself to them.)

Take heed that ye do not your alms [charitable giving] before men, to be seen of [by] them: otherwise ye have no reward of [from] your Father which is in heaven. MT 6:1 Therefore when thou doest thine alms [merciful deeds], do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of  [from] men. Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, They have their reward. MT 6:2 But when thou doest alms [merciful deeds], let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: MT 6:3 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. MT 6:4 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of [by] men. Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, They have their reward. MT 6:5 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. MT 6:6 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Bad To Do

(Don't do your giving, good deeds, and praying to be seen by others, as hypocrites do.)

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. MT 6:7 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. MT 6:8 ASK GOD

(We better ask God to help us quit doing all these things that are bad to do.)

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. MT 6:9 WORSHIP Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. MT 6:10 APPLY God's Will Give us this day our daily bread. MT 6:11 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Money & Worldly Things And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. MT 6:12 RELATIONS Forgiving 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. MT 6:13 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Our Frailty WORSHIP

(We worship from start to end and along the way we overcome our frail harmful nature, after applying God's will to our life; giving up the worldly stuff and forgiving each other.)

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: MT 6:14 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. MT 6:15 RELATIONS Forgiving

Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, They have their reward. MT 6:16 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; MT 6:17 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. MT 6:18

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: MT 6:19 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: MT 6:20 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. MT 6:21 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Money & Worldly Things The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single [sound], thy whole body shall be full of light. MT 6:22 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! MT 6:23 HELPS BELIEVE Right & Wrong

(You can't tell right from wrong when you're so caught up with running after money and worldly things.)

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold [be devoted] to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon [money WU]. MT 6:24 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Money & Worldly Things

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for [do not worry about WU] your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life [not life] more than meat [food], and the body [more] than raiment [clothing]? MT 6:25 Behold the fowls [birds] of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better [more valuable] than they? MT 6:26 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? MT 6:27 And why take ye thought for raiment [clothing]? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: MT 6:28 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. MT 6:29 Wherefore [therefore WU], if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? MT 6:30 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? MT 6:31 (For after all these things do the Gentiles [unconverted WU] seek:) KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Distractions  OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Money & Worldly Things BLESSINGS A Full Life for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. MT 6:32 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you [as well]. MT 6:33

(Only Jesus our Savior can distract us from our worldly pursuits; He provides.)

Take therefore no thought for the morrow [do not worry about tomorrow WU]: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto [for WU] the day is the evil [trouble WU] thereof. MT 6:34 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Distractions

Judge not, that ye be not judged. MT 7:1 For with what judgment ye judge [others WU], ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete [measure], it shall be measured to you again. MT 7:2 LOVE NEIGHBOR Not Judge

(Once you start judging, your going to have relationship problems.)

And why beholdest thou the mote [speck] that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? MT 7:3 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? MT 7:4 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. MT 7:5 RELATIONS Problems

(Some unbelievers may attack you when you tell them what you most highly value.)

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine [pigs], lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you [tear you to pieces]. MT 7:6 UNBELIEF

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: MT 7:7 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. MT 7:8 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? MT 7:9 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? MT 7:10 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? MT 7:11 ASK GOD Whatever

(If we love our unbelieving neighbors we'll ask God to heal them and He'll take action on their behalf.)

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you [whatever you desire for men to do to you], do ye even so to them: for this is [sums up WU] the law and the prophets. MT 7:12 LOVE NEIGHBOR

(Better have some faith because they are going to need it.)

Enter ye in at the strait [narrow] gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: MT 7:13 Because strait [narrow] is the gate, and narrow [restricted] is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. MT 7:14 HELPS BELIEVE Narrow

(The way is narrow and you can't buck the system.)

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. MT 7:15 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of [from] thorns, or figs of thistles? MT 7:16 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. MT 7:17 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. MT 7:18 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. MT 7:19 Wherefore [therefore,] by their fruits ye shall know them. MT 7:20 APPLY Can't Fool

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. MT 7:21 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils [demons]? and in thy name done many wonderful works? MT 7:22 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity [evil WU]. MT 7:23 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: MT 7:24 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. MT 7:25 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: MT 7:26 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. MT 7:27 APPLY God's Will

(After all is said and done you better have done what God said.)




Lord, if thou wilt [are willing WU], thou canst make me clean. MT 8:2

And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed [cured WU]. MT 8:3

I will come and heal him.

Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. MT 8:10 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. MT 8:11 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. MT 8:12 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. MT 8:13

The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where [nowhere] to lay his head.

Follow me; and let the dead bury their [own] dead. MT 8:22 UNBELIEF Leave

(Some people will have to break away from unbelieving family and friends to follow Jesus.)

Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer [permit] us to go away into the herd of swine. MT 8:31 And he said unto them, Go

Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. MT 9:2 And, behold, certain of the scribes [experts in the law WU] said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. MT 9:3 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore [why] think ye evil in your hearts? MT 9:4 For whether [which] is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? MT 9:5 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

Follow me

They that be whole [healthy] need not a physician, but they that are sick. MT 9:12 But go ye and learn what that [this] meaneth, I will have [desire] mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. MT 9:13 CARRY GOSPEL Tell About Jesus

(Go to people who know they are sick, know they are afflicted with doing harm to themselves and others. Be merciful to them, tell them the gospel. This is more important than sacrificial giving to God.)

Can the children of the bridechamber [friends of the bridegroom] mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. MT 9:15
No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto [on] an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh [the patch would tear away] from the garment, and the rent [hole] is made worse. MT 9:16 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles [wineskins]: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

And when Jesus departed thence [from there]

Believe ye that I am able to do this?

According to your faith be it unto you. MT 9:29 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly [strictly] charged them, saying, See that no man know it

(Asking for mercy, with faith in Jesus' healing power, WILL bring healing.)

MT 10:13 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. MT 10:14 PERSECUTION Journeying Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. MT 10:15

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents [snakes WU], and harmless as doves. MT 10:16 UNBELIEF But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge [flog WU] you in their synagogues; MT 10:17 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. MT 10:18 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. MT 10:19 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you. MT 10:20 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.

MT 10:23 PERSECUTION Journeying The disciple is not above his master [teacher], nor the servant above his lord. MT 10:24 It is enough for the disciple that he be as [like] his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them [those] of his household? MT 10:25 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be [made WU] known. MT 10:26 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in [the] light: and what ye hear [whispered] in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. MT 10:27 CARRY GOSPEL Tell About Jesus And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. MT 10:28 PERSECUTION Death Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing [penny]? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without [apart from] your Father['s will]. MT 10:29 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. MT 10:30 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. MT 10:31

(You will be out among some devouring, cunning unbelievers, so be shrewd and innocent. Many people will hate you because of Jesus and call you evil, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. God will give you words to say to them. Then flee the scene. Disclose to people the reality of Christ that you know. Do not be afraid of those that kill the body but cannot kill the soul.)

Whosoever therefore shall confess [acknowledge WU] me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

MT 10:35 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. MT 10:36 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. MT 10:37

And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. MT 10:38 APPLY Not Easy He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. MT 10:39 PERSECUTION Hate

(Whoever acknowledges Jesus before people, Jesus will acknowledge him before God the Father. Whoever disowns Jesus before people, Jesus will disown him before God the Father. The gospel brings many conflicts between people; you must love Jesus the most and endure persecution to be worthy of relationship with Jesus. If you die for Jesus, you will find life. If you stay alive by disowning Jesus, you'll loose life. Whoever receives you because of your relationship with Jesus will receive a reward as though he had that kind of relationship with Jesus.)

He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. MT 10:40 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of [because he is WU] a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. MT 10:41 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a [because he is my WU] disciple, verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, he shall in no wise [way] lose his reward. MT 10:42 CARRY GOSPEL Our Role

Go and shew [tell] John again those things which ye do hear and see: MT 11:4 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. MT 11:5 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in [take no offense at WU] me. MT 11:6

What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? MT 11:7 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses. MT 11:8 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea [yes], I say unto you, and more than a prophet. MT 11:9 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face [ahead of you WU], which shall prepare thy way before thee. MT 11:10 Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a [anyone] greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding [yet] he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. MT 11:11 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence [has forcefully advanced WU], and the violent [forceful men WU] take it by force. MT 11:12 HELPS BELIEVE Force For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. MT 11:13 And if ye will [are willing to] receive it, this is Elias [Elijah], which was for to come. MT 11:14

(Being forceful and sensitive helps you see God's call unmistakably and take the right actions, proving your alignment with God.)

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. MT 11:15 But whereunto [to what] shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, MT 11:16 And saying, We have piped [played the flute] unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. MT 11:17 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Insensitivity For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil [demon]. MT 11:18 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber [drunkard], a friend of publicans [tax collectors] and sinners. But wisdom is justified of [by] her children [deeds WU]. MT 11:19 APPLY Can't Fool


Then began he [Jesus WU] to upbraid [denounce] the cities wherein most of his mighty works [miracles WU] were done, because they repented not: MT 11:20 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. MT 11:21 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. MT 11:22 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. MT 11:23 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. MT 11:24

I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent [learned WU], and hast revealed them unto babes [little children WU]. MT 11:25 Even so [yes], Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. MT 11:26 UNBELIEF Disconnect All things are delivered [handed over WU] unto me of [by] my Father: JESUS Authority and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save [except] the Son, and he to whomsoever [whom] the Son will [chooses to WU] reveal him. MT 11:27 JESUS From Father Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. MT 11:28 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of [from] me; for I am meek [gentle] and lowly [humble WU] in heart: and ye shall find rest unto [for] your souls. MT 11:29 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. MT 11:30 BLESSINGS Peace

(God disconnects from people who refuse the authority of Jesus after God makes Jesus real to them; this Jesus who came from Him. Those who accept Jesus find rest for their souls.)

Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him; MT 12:3 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread [consecrated bread], which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests? MT 12:4 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless? MT 12:5 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple. MT 12:6 But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have [desire] mercy, and not sacrifice, LOVE NEIGHBOR Mercy ye would not have condemned the guiltless. MT 12:7 HELPS BELIEVE Right & Wrong For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day. MT 12:8

(Understanding how important it is to God that we show people mercy helps us clearly distinguish right from wrong.)

What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? MT 12:11 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore [therefore] it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. MT 12:12 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand.

Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment [proclaim justice] to the Gentiles [nations WU]. MT 12:18 He shall not strive [quarrel WU], nor cry [shout]; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets. MT 12:19 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax [wick WU] shall he not quench, CHARACTER till he send forth judgment [leads justice] unto victory. MT 12:20 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust. MT 12:21

(Jesus is gentle, not loud and quarrelsome, and has inner harmony.)

Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: MT 12:25 UNITY And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? MT 12:26 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children [sons WU] cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. MT 12:27 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. MT 12:28 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil [plunder] his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. MT 12:29 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. MT 12:30 UNBELIEF Wherefore [therefore] I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost [Spirit] shall not be forgiven unto men. MT 12:31 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. MT 12:32 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Hating Good Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. MT 12:33 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. MT 12:34 A good man out of the good treasure of the [his] heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. MT 12:35 But I say unto you, That every idle [careless WU] word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in [for on WU] the day of judgment. MT 12:36 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. MT 12:37 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS It Comes Out

(Unbelief is against God and His goodness, and if you have it, it will come out.)

An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas [Jonah]: MT 12:39 UNBELIEF Darkness For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. MT 12:40 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a [someone] greater than Jonas is here. MT 12:41 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. MT 12:42 When the unclean [an evil WU] spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. MT 12:43 Then he saith, I will return into my [the WU] house from whence [which] I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished [put in order]. MT 12:44 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. MT 12:45 UNBELIEF Evil Beings

(Unbelief puts you in the dark with evil beings.)

Who is my mother? and who are my brethren [brothers]? MT 12:48 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren [brothers]! MT 12:49 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. MT 12:50 APPLY Rewards

(Apply the principles (one is to believe in Jesus) and join the family of God.)

Behold, a sower went forth to sow; MT 13:3 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side [roadside], and the fowls [birds] came and devoured them up: MT 13:4 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith [immediately] they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: MT 13:5 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. MT 13:6 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: MT 13:7 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit [a crop WU], some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. MT 13:8 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. MT 13:9 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? MT 13:10 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. MT 13:11 NEED GOD He Enables For whosoever hath [has], to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that [which] he hath. MT 13:12 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. MT 13:13 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias [Isaiah], which saith, By [when WU] hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: MT 13:14 For this people's heart is waxed gross [grown callous], and their ears are dull [hard WU] of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should [otherwise they might WU] see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should [would WU] understand with their heart, and should be converted [turn], and I should heal them. MT 13:15

(As you begin really hearing (understanding) God's message, He will enable you to hear more and more. If you're insensitive, you won't sense God, and His presence and way will not enable you. Giving helps you get out of yourself and become sensitive to others.)

KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Insensitivity But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. MT 13:16 For verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. MT 13:17 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. MT 13:18 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth [snatches] away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. MT 13:19 But he that received the seed [sown] into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon [immediately] with joy receiveth it; MT 13:20 Yet hath he not [no] root in himself, but dureth [endures only WU] for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended [immediately he falls away WU]. MT 13:21 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care[s] of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. MT 13:22 HELPS BELIEVE Give But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit [a crop WU], and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. MT 13:23

The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: MT 13:24 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares [weeds] among the wheat, and went his way [away]. MT 13:25 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. MT 13:26 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence [where] then hath it tares? MT 13:27 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou [do you want] then that we go and gather them up? MT 13:28 But he said, Nay [no]; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. MT 13:29
Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares [weeds], and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. MT 13:30 JUDGEMENT Separation Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: MT 13:31 Which indeed is the least [smallest] of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. MT 13:32 BELIEVE Growing Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven [yeast], which a woman took, and hid [mixed WU] in three measures of meal [a large amount of flour WU], till the whole [it all] was leavened. MT 13:33 BELIEVE Growing All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: MT 13:34 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from [since WU] the foundation of the world. MT 13:35

(Believing produces growing which produces believing, and on and on. This is the path which is opposite to separation from God and doom.)

He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; MT 13:37 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; MT 13:38 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. MT 13:39 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. MT 13:40 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend [cause sin WU], and them which do iniquity [evil WU]; MT 13:41 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. MT 13:42 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. [he] Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. MT 13:43 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. MT 13:44 HELPS BELIEVE Give Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: MT 13:45 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price [value WU], went and sold all that he had, and bought it. MT 13:46 HELPS BELIEVE Give Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered [fish] of every kind: MT 13:47 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels [containers], but cast the bad away. MT 13:48 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever [separate] the wicked from among the just, MT 13:49 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. MT 13:50 JUDGEMENT Separation Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say [answered] unto him, Yea [yes], Lord. MT 13:51 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe [expert in the law WU] which is instructed unto [about WU] the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old. MT 13:52 JESUS Teacher

(When you get to keep what you want, you give up the rest; if you don't want the Lord you will be separated from Him and judged unfavorably for not listening to the Teacher.)

A prophet is not without honour, save [except] in his own country, and in his own house. MT 13:57 UNBELIEF And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief. MT 13:58

Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. MT 14:27 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. MT 14:28 And he said, Come.

O thou of little faith, wherefore [why] didst thou doubt? MT 14:31 BELIEVE Doing

(You can do amazing things to help people when you believe.)

Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? MT 15:3 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the [be put to] death. MT 15:4 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me [whatever help you might otherwise have gotten from me is a gift devoted to God]; MT 15:5 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect [void] by your tradition. MT 15:6 Ye hypocrites, KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Refusing well did Esaias [Isaiah] prophesy of you, saying, MT 15:7 This people draweth nigh [near] unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. MT 15:8 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for [as] doctrines the commandments of men. MT 15:9 JESUS Teacher And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: MT 15:10 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. MT 15:11OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Harm From Within

(If you refuse the Teacher you will not overcome the harm from within.)

Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. MT 15:13 Let [leave] them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. MT 15:14 UNBELIEF Disconnect Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare [explain] unto us this parable. MT 15:15 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? MT 15:16 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Insensitivity Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out [of the body] into the draught [latrine WU]? MT 15:17 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. MT 15:18 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications [sexual sins], thefts, false witness, blasphemies: MT 15:19 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man. MT 15:20 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Harm From Within

(Your insensitivity will cause God to disconnect from you and then you will be overcome by your harmful desires.)

And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil [demon]. MT 15:22 HELPS BELIEVE Humility But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. MT 15:23 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. MT 15:24 Then came she and worshipped [knelt before WU] him, saying, Lord, help me. MT 15:25 But he answered and said, It is not meet [appropriate] to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. MT 15:26 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. MT 15:27 HELPS BELIEVE Humility Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt [desire]. BELIEVE Healing And her daughter was made whole [healed] from that very hour. MT 15:28

(Humility toward the Lord enables you to ask persistently for His help and to believe He can do things you can't, bringing His healing into your world.)

I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting [hungry WU], lest they faint in [on] the way. MT 15:32 And his disciples say unto him, Whence [where] should we have [get] so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude? MT 15:33 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye?

When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. MT 16:2 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern [interpret WU] the face [appearance] of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? MT 16:3 UNBELIEF Darkness A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas [Jonah].

(Unbelief moves you into darkness; you don't see what's happening spiritually, and you can be deceived by others who are in the dark. Believing helps you understand and be in touch with what God is doing.)

Take heed and beware of the leaven [yeast] of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. MT 16:6

O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, [that it is WU] because ye have brought no bread? MT 16:8 Do ye not yet understand, BELIEVE Bring God neither remember the five loaves of [for] the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? MT 16:9 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? MT 16:10 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven [yeast] of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? MT 16:11 UNBELIEF Deceit

(Believing Jesus brings God, unbelief brings deceit.)

Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? MT 16:13 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias [Elijah]; and others, Jeremias [Jeremiah], or one of the prophets. MT 16:14 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? MT 16:15 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. MT 16:16 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. MT 16:17 NEED GOD He Enables And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. MT 16:18 PERSECUTION Journeying And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. MT 16:19 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ. MT 16:20

(God will enable you to believe in spite of the persecution you will endure on your journey.)

Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence [stumbling block] unto me: for thou savourest [have in mind WU] not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. MT 16:23 UNBELIEF Evil Beings Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will [desires to] come after me, let him [he must WU] deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. MT 16:24 APPLY Not Easy For whosoever will [desires to] save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. MT 16:25 PERSECUTION Death For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? MT 16:26 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. MT 16:27 JUDGEMENT By Christ Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. MT 16:28

(Satan tries to disrupt your walk with God, and some unbelievers bring persecution and death to believers. But we will all be rewarded by Christ according to our works, and He can't be paid off with anything to change his decision.)

This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye [listen to] him. MT 17:5 PRINCIPLES JESUS Teacher And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore [very] afraid. MT 17:6 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. MT 17:7 BELIEVE No Fear And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save [except] Jesus only. MT 17:8 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision [what you saw] to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead. MT 17:9 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes [experts in the law WU] that Elias must first come? MT 17:10 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias [Elijah] truly shall first come, and restore all things. MT 17:11 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew [recognized] him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed [wanted to]. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of [by] them. MT 17:12 PERSECUTION Misjudged Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist. MT 17:13

(Jesus has God the Father's approval to teach the principles, and tells us not to be afraid of God's presence. We are mistreated by some people that do not recognize that we belong to God and show the way to Him. Jesus does not like being around unbelief and perversion. The humble one asks for help and receives power to do the impossible through believing.)

Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick [epileptic], and sore vexed [suffers grievously]: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.

Because of your unbelief [so little faith WU]: for verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, If ye have faith as [small as WU] a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence [move from here] to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. MT 17:20 Howbeit [but] this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. MT 17:21 BELIEVE Power

The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men: MT 17:22 And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again.

What thinkest thou, Simon? of [from] whom do the kings of the earth take custom [receive toll] or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? MT 17:25 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free [exempt]. MT 17:26 Notwithstanding, [but] lest we should offend them, LOVE NEIGHBOR go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee. MT 17:27

(Love your neighbor, being careful not to offend him. Show the childlike humility that leads one into true believing and greatness.)

Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, Except [unless] ye be converted [change WU], and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. MT 18:3 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. MT 18:4 HELPS BELIEVE Humility And whoso [whoever] shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. MT 18:5 But whoso [whoever] shall offend [cause to sin WU] one of these little ones which believe in me, LOVE NEIGHBOR Not Cause Sin it were [would be] better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. MT 18:6 Woe unto the world because of offences [things that cause people to sin WU]! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by [through] whom the offence cometh! MT 18:7 UNBELIEF (unbelievers tend to cause believers to sin (do harmful things); they better take as strong a measure as possible to stop or they will be sorry) Wherefore [therefore WU] if thy hand or thy foot offend thee [causes you to sin], cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt [crippled] or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. MT 18:8 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. MT 18:9 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Overcame  Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. MT 18:10 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. MT 18:11 SERVING Humility (Perhaps one of the best ways to overcome our harmful desires is through serving others. Jesus served us by coming to find us and save us when we had gone astray.) How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? MT 18:12 And if so be that he find it, verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of [over] that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. MT 18:13 Even so [in the same way WU] it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. MT 18:14 PROTECTION Moreover if thy brother shall trespass [sin WU] against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear [listen to] thee, thou hast gained [back] thy brother. MT 18:15 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more [people WU], that in the mouth [testimony WU] of two or three witnesses every word [matter WU] may be established. MT 18:16 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican [tax collector]. MT 18:17 Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. MT 18:18 RELATIONS Problems (when you start serving others and have your relationships with others inline with the principles (in spite of all the problems that come up, and this involves A LOT of forgiving and mercy (these are the fruits of true believing), then you can ask what you wish from the Father, and it is yours) Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching [concerning] any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of [by] my Father which is in heaven. MT 18:19 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. MT 18:20 ASK GOD Whatever

I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. MT 18:22 RELATIONS Forgiving Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of [settle accounts with WU] his servants. MT 18:23 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. MT 18:24 But forasmuch as he had not to [because he couldn't] pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. MT 18:25 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped [kneeled before] him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. MT 18:26 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed [released] him, and forgave him the debt. MT 18:27 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence [one sixtieth of a talent WU]: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that [what] thou owest. MT 18:28 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. MT 18:29 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. MT 18:30 RELATIONS Forgiving So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. MT 18:31 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst [begged] me: MT 18:32 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? MT 18:33 LOVE NEIGHBOR Mercy And his lord was wroth [angry], and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. MT 18:34 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto [each of WU] you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses [if you don't each forgive your brother from your hearts for his misdeeds]. MT 18:35

Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, MT 19:4
And said, For this cause [reason WU] shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain [two] shall be one flesh? MT 19:5 Wherefore [so that] they are no more twain [two], but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder [tear apart]. MT 19:6 RELATIONS Divorce They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? MT 19:7 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered [allowed] you to put away [divorce] your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. MT 19:8 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away [divorce] his wife, except it be for fornication [sexual immorality], and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso [he who] marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. MT 19:9 RELATIONS Divorce His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. MT 19:10 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive [accept WU] this saying, save [but only WU] they to whom it is given. MT 19:11 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of [by] men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him [should] receive it. MT  19:12 RELATIONS Divorce

(You might as well forget about getting a divorce, it is not the way. The kingdom of heaven belongs to people with childlike humility.)

Suffer [allow the] little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. MT 19:14 HELPS BELIEVE Humility

Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. MT 19:17
He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness [testimony], MT 19:18 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. MT 19:19 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? MT 19:20 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that [what] thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. MT 19:21

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly [with difficulty] enter into the kingdom of heaven. MT 19:23 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. MT 19:24 HELPS BELIEVE Give

(The rich will only enter the kingdom of heaven with great difficulty; it is hard to give a large portion of your wealth to the poor (see also LK 19:1-10), (soften the heart and repent of that selfishness. God will  bestow many blessings of heaven on those who give things up for Jesus' sake. And for those who get puffed up and think they are better than others, He will take action to help overcome this harmful problem. God will put us to work in fruitful ways and reward us after we are finished. Don't grumble against God's generosity toward other believers.)

With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. MT 19:26 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken [left] all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? MT 19:27 And Jesus said unto them, Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration [at the renewal of all things WU] when the Son of man shall sit in [on] the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. MT 19:28 And every one that hath forsaken [left] houses, or brethren [brothers], or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. MT 19:29 HELPS BELIEVE Give BLESSINGS Heaven But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first. MT 19:30 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Harm From Within For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder [landowner WU], which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. MT 20:1 And when he had agreed with the labourers for [to pay WU] a penny [denarius] a day, he sent them into his vineyard. MT 20:2 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, MT 20:3 APPLY Fruit Essential And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. MT 20:4 BELIEVE Doing Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. MT 20:5 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? MT 20:6 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. MT 20:7 So when even[ing] was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire [wages], beginning from the last unto the first. MT 20:8 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. MT 20:9 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny [denarius]. MT 20:10 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman [owner WU] of the house [land WU], MT 20:11 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Bad To Do Saying, These last have wrought [worked WU] but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. MT 20:12 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? MT 20:13 Take that [which] thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. MT 20:14 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will [want] with mine own [money WU]? Is thine eye evil [are you envious WU], because I am good [generous WU]? MT 20:15 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. MT 20:16

Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes [experts in the law WU], and they shall condemn him to death, MT 20:18 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock [be mocked WU], and to scourge [be flogged WU], and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again. MT 20:19

And he said unto her, What wilt thou [do you want]? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on [at] thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. MT 20:21 Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. MT 20:22 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of [by] my Father. MT 20:23

Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. MT 20:25 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will [desires to] be great among you, let him be [must be WU] your minister [servant]; MT 20:26 And whosoever will be chief [first] among you, let him be your servant [slave WU]: MT 20:27 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto [served], but to minister [serve], and to give his life [as] a ransom for many. MT 20:28 SERVING Humility

(Pride can cost you more pain and suffering than you thought; better to humbly serve and receive more good things than you thought. including greatness.)

And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side [road], when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David. MT 20:30 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should [wanted them to WU] hold their peace [be quiet]: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David. MT 20:31
HELPS BELIEVE Humility And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will [want] ye that I shall do unto you?

(Asking the Lord's mercy brings His healing power into our lives. Jesus involves us in His miraculous work and protects our relationship with God. The humble worship Jesus.)

Go into the village over against [opposite] you, and straightway [immediately] ye shall find an ass [donkey] tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.

MT 21:19 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! MT 21:20 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. MT 21:21 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. MT 21:22 ASK GOD Whatever

I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise [likewise] will tell you by what authority I do these things. MT 21:24 The baptism of John, whence [where] was it [from]? from heaven, or of [from] men?

(Prideful people can not even manage to get their questions answered, while the humble believer has WHATEVER he asks.)

Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things. MT 21:27 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. MT 21:28 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. MT 21:29 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. MT 21:30 Whether [which] of them twain [two] did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, That the publicans [tax collectors] and the harlots [prostitutes] go into the kingdom of God before [ahead of WU] you. MT 21:31 For John came unto you in [to show you WU] the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it [this WU], repented not afterward, that ye might believe him. MT 21:32 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Pride Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let [leased] it out to husbandmen [farmers], and went into a far country: MT 21:33 And when the time of the fruit [harvest WU] drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. MT 21:34 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. MT 21:35 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. MT 21:36 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. MT 21:37 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. MT 21:38 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. MT 21:39 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? MT 21:40

(The fruit or lack of fruit (due to rejecting Christ) is evident, and so is your placement either in or out of God's Eternal Kingdom.)

Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner [cornerstone WU]: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? MT 21:42 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation [people WU] bringing forth [that will produce WU] the fruits thereof. MT 21:43 APPLY Fruit Essential And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder [crush WU]. MT 21:44 JUDGEMENT Which Group

The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage [wedding banquet WU] for his son, MT 22:2 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden [invited] to the wedding: and they would not come. MT 22:3 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Refusing Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. MT 22:4 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: MT 22:5 And the remnant [rest] took his servants, and entreated [treated] them spitefully [shamefully], and slew them. MT 22:6 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth [angry]: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. MT 22:7 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. MT 22:8 Go ye therefore into the highways [streets WU], and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. MT 22:9 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. MT 22:10 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment [clothes]: MT 22:11 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither [here] not having a wedding garment [clothes]? And he [the man WU] was speechless. MT 22:12 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, [where] there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. MT 22:13 For many are called, but few are chosen. MT 22:14 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Refusing

Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's. MT 22:21

Ye do err [are mistaken], not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. MT 22:29 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. MT 22:32 BLESSINGS Heaven And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine [teaching]. MT 22:33 JESUS Teacher

MT 23:35 Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. MT 23:36

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! MT 23:37 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. MT 23:38 JUDGEMENT Which Group For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth [from now on], till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. MT 23:39

And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. MT 24:2

Take heed that no man deceive you. MT 24:4 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am [the] Christ; and shall deceive many. MT 24:5 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. MT 24:6 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences [plagues], and earthquakes, in divers [various] places. MT 24:7 All these are the beginning of sorrows [birth pains]. MT 24:8 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted [oppressed], and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of [by] all nations for my name's sake. MT 24:9 And then shall many be offended [turn away from the faith WU], and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. MT 24:10 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. MT 24:11 And because iniquity [wickedness WU] shall abound, the love of many shall wax [grow] cold. MT 24:12 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Our Frailty But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. MT 24:13 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness [testimony] unto all nations; and then shall the end come. MT 24:14 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso [he who WU] readeth, let him understand:) MT 24:15 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: MT 24:16 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: MT 24:17 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. MT 24:18 And woe unto them that are with child [pregnant WU], and to them that give suck [nursing mothers] in those days! MT 24:19 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: MT 24:20 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. MT 24:21 And except [unless] those days should be [had been] shortened, there should no flesh [one] be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. MT 24:22 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is [the] Christ, or there; believe it not. MT 24:23 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew [show] great signs and wonders; insomuch [so] that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. MT 24:24 Behold, I have told you before[hand]. MT 24:25 Wherefore [therefore] if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. MT 24:26 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. MT 24:27 JESUS Coming For wheresoever the carcase [carcass] is, there will the eagles [vultures] be gathered together. MT 24:28 Immediately after the tribulation [suffering WU] of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: MT 24:29 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven [the sky]: and then shall all the tribes [nations WU] of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in [on] the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. MT 24:30 JUDGEMENT By Christ And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. MT 24:31 Now learn a parable of [from] the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh [near]: MT 24:32 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. MT 24:33 Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, This generation [race WU] shall not pass [away], till all these things be fulfilled. MT 24:34 (even though we are all so frail, Jesus is coming back to Judge, looking to see who overcame their harmful desires and is applying the principles (one is believing in Him); so apply them now, don't wait, it's essential, essential, essential, the Judge is coming! He will separate those who applied them from those who didn't) Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not [never WU] pass away. MT 24:35 PRINCIPLES But of [about WU] that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not [even WU] the angels of heaven, but my Father only. MT 24:36 But as the days of Noe [Noah] were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. MT 24:37 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, MT 24:38 And knew not [what would happen WU] until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. MT 24:39 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. MT 24:40 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. MT 24:41 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. MT 24:42 But know this, that if the goodman [master] of the house had known in what watch [of the night] the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered [allowed] his house to be broken up [into]. MT 24:43 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not [don't expect] the Son of man cometh. MT 24:44 APPLY Don't Wait Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat [the other servants their food WU] in due season [at the proper time WU]? MT 24:45 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. MT 24:46 Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. MT 24:47 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; MT 24:48 And shall begin to smite [beat] his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; MT 24:49 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, MT 24:50 And shall cut him asunder [in pieces], and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: [where] there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. MT 24:51 APPLY Fruit Essential Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. MT 25:1 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. MT 25:2 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: MT 25:3 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. MT 25:4 While the bridegroom tarried [took his time in coming WU], they all slumbered and slept. MT 25:5 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. MT 25:6 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. MT 25:7 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. MT 25:8 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell [oil WU], and buy for yourselves. MT 25:9 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage [feast]: and the door was shut. MT 25:10 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. MT 25:11 But he answered and said, Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, I know you not. MT 25:12 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. MT 25:13 APPLY Fruit Essential For the kingdom of heaven is as a man [going] travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered [entrusted] unto them his goods. MT 25:14 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several [own] ability; and straightway [then he] took his journey. MT 25:15 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same [them], and made them other [another] five talents. MT 25:16 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other [another] two. MT 25:17 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money. MT 25:18 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth [reconciled accounts] with them. MT 25:19 And so he that had received five talents came and brought [an]other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. MT 25:20 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. MT 25:21 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. MT 25:22 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. MT 25:23 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed [scattered seed WU]: MT 25:24 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo [behold], there [here WU] thou hast that [what] is thine. MT 25:25 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful [lazy WU] servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: MT 25:26 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers [bankers], and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury [interest]. MT 25:27 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. MT 25:28 For unto every one that hath [has] shall be given [more WU], and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. MT 25:29 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: [where] there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. MT 25:30 APPLY Fruit Essential When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: MT 25:31 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them [the people WU] one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: MT 25:32 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. MT 25:33 JUDGEMENT Separation Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from [since WU] the foundation of the world: MT 25:34 For I was an hungred [hungry], and ye gave me meat [food]: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: MT 25:35 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto [to visit WU] me. MT 25:36 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? MT 25:37 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? MT 25:38 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? MT 25:39 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. MT 25:40 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: MT 25:41 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat [food]: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: MT 25:42 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. MT 25:43 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto [help] thee? MT 25:44 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. MT 25:45 APPLY Fruit Essential And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. MT 25:46 JUDGEMENT Separation And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples, MT 26:1 Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed [will be delivered up] to be crucified. MT 26:2

Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought [done] a good work upon me. MT 26:10 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. MT 26:11 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial. MT 26:12 Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that [what] this woman hath done, be told for a memorial [in memory WU] of her. MT 26:13

(Good deeds are not soon forgotten.)

Go into the city to such a [a certain] man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep [observe WU] the passover at thy house with my disciples. MT 26:18

Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. MT 26:21 And they were exceeding[ly] sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I [it isn't me, is it]? MT 26:22 And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me. MT 26:23 The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good [would be better] for that man if he had not been born. MT 26:24 Then Judas, which betrayed [the one who would betray WU] him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said [yes, it is you WU]. MT 26:25

Take, eat; this is my body. MT 26:26 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; MT 26:27 For this is my blood of the new testament [covenant], which is shed for many for the remission [forgiveness WU] of sins. MT 26:28 JESUS Life But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth [from now on] of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it [a]new with you in my Father's kingdom. MT 26:29

All ye shall be offended [fall away WU] because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite [strike] the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad. MT 26:31 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee. MT 26:32 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended. MT 26:33 Jesus said unto him, Verily [most assuredly] I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock [rooster] crow, thou shalt deny me thrice [three times]. MT 26:34

Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. MT 26:36

Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto [the point of WU] death: tarry [stay] ye here, and [keep WU] watch with me. MT 26:38

(Though applying the principles is so difficult with the hatred people sometimes inflict on us and trying not to retaliate with that same hatred, Jesus brings us life.)

O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. MT 26:39 APPLY Not Easy And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not [keep WU] watch with me one hour? MT 26:40 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. MT 26:41 He went away again the [a] second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except [unless] I drink it, thy will be done. MT 26:42 APPLY Not Easy

Sleep on now, and take your rest [are you still sleeping and resting?]: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. MT 26:45 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me. MT 26:46

Friend, wherefore [why] art thou come?

Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again [back] thy sword into his place: for all they that take [hold of WU] the sword shall perish with [by] the sword. MT 26:52 RELATIONS Problems Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give [send WU] me more than twelve legions of angels? MT 26:53 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that [say] thus it must be [it must happen this way WU]? MT 26:54

Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves [clubs] for to take [seize] me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me. MT 26:55 But all this was done [has happened], that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled.

Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said [yes, it is as you say WU]: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on [at] the right hand of power [the Mighty One WU], and coming in [on] the clouds of heaven. MT 26:64

Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice [three times]. And he went out, and wept bitterly. MT 26:75

(If we only realized now who Jesus is.)

Thou sayest [so you say]. MT 27:11

Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? MT 27:46


And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. MT 28:5 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay [was lying]. MT 28:6 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. MT 28:7

And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail [greetings WU]. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. MT 28:9 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they [should] go into Galilee, and there shall they see me. MT 28:10
