Blessed Is

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the [a]earth.
 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
 Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you (Matthew 5:3-12).

The beatitudes in the book of Matthew 5:3-12 describe a divine paradox to the word blessed of which our culture proclaims. According to the teaching of Jesus, those who are deemed blessed also experience external poverty, mourning, distress or persecution while operating in a spirit of humility; modest or low view of one’s own importance. Be careful in your proclamation. Material possessions nor the absent of extreme hardship, according to the Master, in no way validates us being blessed. Such misunderstanding will expose our ignorance or may lead others (or, ourselves) in a path of low self-worthy.

Leader’s Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, Loving and Gracious One, When we have the urge to expose an individual’s weakness or failure’s, remind us of how lost, miserable and blind we use to be. O Holy Spirit, when we begin to think more highly then we ought to, bring to our remembrance how wretched we can still sometimes be. Deepen our capacity to pray, deepen our capacity to humbly lead. Don’t allow us to be arrogant or prideful, stop us, O LORD from crucifying those who stumble, allow us to love, guide and pray for those who are weak. In Jesus name, I pray to Thee.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

“Their”

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 15:57).

In mediation, the Spirit of the LORD brought to my remembrance Revelation 12:11, “And they overcame Satan by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony…”

Suddenly, the word “their” shock my spirit to it’s core!!! Then, the Master beginning speaking. He said, “Tell My people, stop trying to overcome Satan with someone else’s testimony!”

My heart dropped! I have used this scripture countless times and never, EVER observed the word “their.” I automatically believed that the word “their” meant “them.” Meaning, someone else’s testimony can help save me, and my testimony can help save them. However, Jesus said in this particular verse when the word “their” is presented, the context is: themselves. He confirmed this by reminding me of Acts 4:12 which reads, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

God reminded me that if any other flesh is connected to our saving grace experience, it is not true salvation. And, as a result will not bring true deliverance – salvation is through Jesus and Him alone!

This is why we can share our testimony at church and someone with the exact same issue can still leave defeated and in bondage. This is why we can write best-selling, earth shattering or demonic breaking anointed laced books, and the person who just read it is falling apart at the altar, hopeless! I will go deeper: this is why I can see someone conquering all of the many trials I’m struggling to overcome, and yet, their testimony doesn’t strengthen me…

Dear Spirit of the Living God, strengthen our minds, and clear our thoughts that we may look only towards You, the only One who has the ability to make our path’s straight! In Jesus name, we pray.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Surrender, Worship and Obedience: Love!

“Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book” (Revelations 22:7).

“In Colossians 1:21-22, the Apostle Paul asserts that through the blood of Christ shed on the cross, we are to be presented holy, blameless and above reproach (i.e. above disapproval or disappointment) in the sight of God, the Father. However, in verse 23, Paul presents a clause: “if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel (of Jesus Christ).”

It is extremely foolish to believe that confession alone maintains our salvation. We too, must submit to Christ’s Lordship through faith.”

From my book, Blessed Is… A devotion of overlooked biblical truths.”

May the LORD strengthen you, perfect you and establish you. In Jesus name!
