Jul 28, 2021 – Matthew 5:29/ “Stumble”/ 1 Peter

But if your right eye causes you to stumble”, pluck it out and cast from you, for it is good to you that one of your members may perish, and not your whole body be cast into Gehenna.

The “right eye” represent the right side of the mind, which is our creative mind. So, the verse tells us that if our creativity/ our imagination causes us to fall into sin, then we should “cut it off”. The way we cut it off is by diverting our attention somewhere else and rejecting it within ourselves.

Our eyes is the most sensitive part of our body, which means it’s the most vulnerable. All the lust of the eye enters into the heart and if we are delighted in our hearts by the sin our eyes, we are living in darkness. The light of this world, the pleasures of the flesh all perishes. The true light, which is the light of Christ never perish for it is perfect.

When we seek the pleasures of this world we are rejecting the perfect gift of God, his righteousness. If we defile ourselves with this world, we will find ourselves under the same judgement of that which have defiled us. One of the things God did in exodus was that he prevent the Children of Israel from experiencing any of the curses that plagued the Egyptians.

God will do the same for us, when we walk in his righteous light of holiness and don’t cause ourselves to stumble by falling to the lust of the flesh. Eve in the garden was consumed by the lust of the flesh and cause her whole body to sin and when she did, she became naked and ashamed. That’s how we are without God’s light we are ashamed and naked, though thru the perversion of the flesh the world have taken great pride in their nakedness and glorified in the body clothed in shame. Ye, they and their sins shall have the same judgement.

Let’s look at what Peter says about our “stumble”>

1 Peter 2:6
“See, I lay in Zion a stone,

a chosen and precious cornerstone;

and the one who believes in Him

will never be put to shame. 
Shame is what we are left with after we stumble. If we walk in his righteous we will not stumble.
Philippians 3:19
For their end is destruction,
 whose God is their belly
 and their glory is in their shame- 
these whose minds are in the dirt.

The glory comes in the end, the glory is what we all work towards, it’s a reward.

In Philippians it speaks to those who rejected that stone spoken of in Peter, whose glory is in their shame. As I have mention, the shame comes in the end, and their end, shall be their shame.

God is whom we serve while we are alive but those who have rejected God, they live to serve themselves, their belly is what the live to serve. They seek to fulfill the least desire in the flesh, but God cause all of them to fall into destruction, all of those who thoughts are not of God but of the filth of this life. They can never reach the fullness of their pleasure, they are caused to make continual sacrifices to please the flesh, lest it hunger unto death. There is no escaping it, you’re master is your belly and it’s a cruel master, who punishes all who serves it and reward the guilty. Let us rejoice for we serve a righteous God, who desire for all of us to be full and complete like him, not having any of us lacking any good thing.

1 Peter 2:8
To you who believe, then, this stone is precious.
 But to those who do not believe,
...“A stone of stumbling

and a rock of offense.

If we believe Christ, we receive his gift of light, the very light that Adam and Eve was deprived of when they sinned. This light is precious and the stone, which the world have rejected is the foundation of our lives, so not only is this stone what saved us, it sustains us, like a foundation of a house. They who don't have the light and walk in darkness, are bound to fall and Peter says that it is Christ who cause them to fall for they eventually run against him. Just like those who live a lie, their enemy is the truth, but those who live in truth, their greatest advocate/defense is the truth.

The truth offends those who live a lie, just like those who live in darkness are offended by the light, because it reveals all their sins.

Christ was the one who laid the foundations of the world, so that which last, is built upon him. He is the rock of salvation, he is the rock that Moses strike to give water (life) to the people of Israel. He is the stone that David slung at Goliath, that cause the philistines to serve the Israelites, which means those whom have rejected Christ, eventually Christ will rule over. 
1 Peter 2:7
“The stone the builders rejected
 has become the cornerstone,”
In 1 Peter verse 8, the stone was called an “offense”
We being believers aren’t offended by the “stone” which is the “truth” and when we aren’t offended by the “truth”, we are called “blessed”.
“And blessed is he,
 whoever will not take offense at me.” - Luke 7:23

Christ came so that we might be blessed and blessed beyond measure. When we hear the words of Christ and we don’t get offend we are wise and blessed. Let’s look at proverbs to see how the scripture describe those who aren’t offended by the “truth”.

Proverbs 9:8
Do not rebuke an evil one,
 lest he hate you,
 but rebuke a wise one, 
for he will love you.
Proverbs 3:12
For whom the LORD loves He reproves, 
Even as a father, 
the son in whom he delights.

When we hear the truth let us not reject it from entering into our hearts, just because the truth may offend us, lest we be deceived by a pleasing lie, from lying lips that appeals to the deceit in the heart. Let your heart be bountiful with the word of the Lord which establishes every good & true thing within us, creating a seal of protection from the wrath of the Lord that we may not be accursed. 
1 Peter 2:8
They stumble because they disobey the word—
and to this they were appointed.

When the scripture says they was “appointed” that means that God, knowing all things, knew that they was going to do it beforehand, and when the did disobey, God already had a plan in place for it to happen. This is even true for Adam and Eve, God knew that if they sin, they would die and even told them, that’s what would happen and intended for this to happen. He didn’t want nor cause them to sin and the same for us, but he appointed them to be in a position to sin, know that they would. This is why when we pray, we say “led us not into temptation” in the hopes that God delivers us from that appointed time of temptation. God knew in genesis, that he was going to flood the earth and in Revelation that he was going to destroy the earth, these are appointed times in the world. We should pray that we don’t have to face it, we should pray that God delivers us and we find a way of escape from these troubling hours.

Salt of the Earth

Matthew 5:13
"You are the salt of the earth..."
What makes us the salt of the earth?
1 Peter 2:9
"(you are)...to proclaim the virtues of Him
 who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light."

When we have the virtue of God, that’s what makes us the salt of the earth. Salt is a preservative, when we preserve God’s word in our hearts, he will preserve us. It is him in us that saved us and if he’s in us then we are in him.

When we lived in darkness we had no virtue to God but when we are in God’s light, the virtue of that light is on us and we are the virtue of God in the world/ the light of the world.

Matthew 5:13
...But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot"

As we have spoken of, the salt is virtue. If you being the virtue of God, lose your virtue, how then will you regain the virtue of God and be again the virtue. This is not possible for you’ll become hypocrites and there is no virtue with God in hypocrisy. Even if you seem good to the world, you will longer be any good to God, causing you to lose your reward.

Just as Adam and Eve lost the virtue of God, they was thrown out of the garden and had to toll with the earth, to reap the reward and the virtue of the world, instead of the virtue of God.

What’s interesting is that, God condemned Adam to toll with the earth and Jacob being the patriarch of the 12 Tribes, tolled with God, he wrestled with God until day broke. This is significant because for us to toll with some/wrestle with something it has to be in our possession and we are in its. We are called to wrestle and toll with the world of God until the light returns, The returning of the light is the return of Christ, so if we being like Jacob, wrestle with the word of God which is God and we prevail, we will gain favor with the Lord and just like Jacob be blessed, if we endure and wrestle to the end, until Christ return. The wrestling of God and Jacob, is the wrestling between flesh and blood. We all must wrestle with our flesh, and if we overcome it, we will have power and dominion over it.

When Jesus was in the wilderness being tempted, he wrestle with his own flesh and when he prevailed he had angels serving and ministering unto him. This is what makes the virtue of the world, because we have overcame just as Christ has.

What’s also interesting about the Jacob story is that, God touched his hip and caused him to limp when he walk. This is the same of us with Christ, we are caused to stumble in our walk with God. God is trying to get us to submit but we are going against God, in our carnal understanding, the Word of God won’t makes sense to our simple worldly mind, we must wrestle with the Word of God, to gain the power of it and when we prevail with God, we can overcome the world. If wrestle with the truth and prevail, lies will not have power over us, we can trample over demons. This is incident speaks to how when we encounter God’s word we shall forever be changed, just as Jacob was after wrestling with the angel. The truth of the spirit is against the lie of the flesh, we must not let the flesh prevail in us, because it won’t in the world, God will allow evil to endure for a little while, but only a little while before it perishes.

1 Peter 2:11
"...desires of the flesh, which war against your soul."
12 "...they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us."

Matthew 5:14
 "A city set on a hill cannot be hidden;"

If we are the salt of earth, then we savor God’s word. His word is nourishment to our bodies, food for the soul.

Our body are like a city. A city like Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed and Nineveh was saved. If we reject God’s word from entering our bodies (heart), then we will be like Sodom and Gomorrah and be destroyed. If we preserve the wickedness of this world in our heart’s we would be like Lot’s wife and we will not escape the Judgement of the Lord. God turned her into a pillar of salt because she looked back. Whatever you give your attention to, you preserve, when she looked back, she was preserving the wickedness of that city in her body. God seeing that, turned her into salt, to keep her from leaving that which she preserved in her hearts. We are called to forsake wickedness and unrighteousness, leaving all that we have in this world to obtain that which is of God. We cannot mingle the virtue of God and the virtue of this world in our hearts (body).

Revelation 3:16
“And you are lukewarm 
and neither cold nor hot, 
I am going to vomit you from my mouth.”

If we don't reject the world from our lives and living in our hearts, God's going to reject us. We cannot enter into him with the residue and filth of this world, still residing in our heart. God seeks for us to be fully his and he will accept/receive us or fully belong to the world where he will reject/forsake us.

God has already forsaken this world, as Jesus cried out on the cross. If he has forsake this world and the world rejected him and his son Christ, how will you being like the world, will not get rejected from God or be saved if you reject is son? 

Ye, the father was the first to reject the world, sending Adam and Eve out the garden, them and all their generation will be rejected, expect one that is Christ and if we are the descends of Christ, we will not be rejected also. We will return to the "garden". 

The garden is hidden. The garden is "God's Den", the place where God dwells. God placed man in the garden, so that he can have his own "kingdom" which means "King's Domain". The garden was Adam's Kingdom, and when we return, we shall be kings, have power and dominion over all the earth. Christ left the earth but shall return and we shall leave this body but return with a new body. Christ will have new form but that body, with the wounds of his crucifixion, shall remain and we shall see as Thomas have seen the wounds and believe as Thomas believed.

Even though Adam and Eve was immediately separated from God's Light, which was Christ, they didn't die. Just as we in this world, separate from Christ, because of sin. Christ defeated sin, so we no longer have to be separated from Christ, he can be joined unto us and we unto him. When we have Christ, we are clothed in God's marvelous light. All is restore when we return back unto the garden being clothing in the light of Christ as we were in the beginning.

(INTRO)

Don’t envy those that don’t carry their cross.

Love all and be love to all.

— Oscar Wilde.

I post daily this is my personal space to write, be a creative, reflect, and share my thought. Spiritually/God based. Every place is a building, no place is called a built, but building. This place is a building. No, not a physical one but nevertheless a building. where I place blocks of words to build to comprise something worth reading. Nobody is fully built we are all buildings.

Look at this verse:

“Everyone therefore who hears these my words, and does them, will be likened to the wise man who built his house on solid rock. 25And the rain descended and the floods came and the wind blew, and they rushed against the house and it did not fall, for its foundation was laid on solid rock. 26And everyone who hears these my words, but does not practice them, will be likened to the foolish man who built his house on sand. 27And the rain descended and the floods came, and the wind blew, and they rushed against that house, and it fell, and its fall was great.” – Matthew 7:24-27 (ARAMAIC)

Just move in faith and God will handle the rest.

I am not a slave to my desires.

I claim victory over my flesh.

People will use that wore out excuse of “I did know!” just so they can remain indifferent.

The belief is that if we live in these social boxes then we are safe, but the truth is that we are never safe, we are constantly on stand-by for whatever “they” want to do with our lives.

If we somehow manage to climb out the social rathole of being in poverty or barely making it, what about the ones we love.

There’s nothing sustainable outside of truth.

God is true, love is true.

Everything outside of God will change.

I’ve been thinking about how I’ve been wanting to stop working on Grubhub to focus back on my YouTube channel and writing more. Devoting myself to the things that actually matters to me and is creatively challenging and purpose oriented.

I also been wanting to move out my grandmother’s house so I can have the peace of mind of having my own space.

I’m not in a bad place in my life right now, I am just not fulfilled. I dislike not feeling that gave this day everything I could. I don’t want to feel like I’m just getting by.

Nobody and nothing can complete you like God can. You can spend your life looking for someone that was made for you or spend time with the one you was made for.

I know I need to be patient and wait on God’s timing for my life. It’s hard to know what this life would be like without and orientation to God.

The place from which we find the most pain is the same place from which we desire the most pleasure.

Freedom for me is when I don’t desire to find pleasure in the flesh. To know that which sustains life beyond my body, a spirit that keeps me alive.

I feel the most free when I am at peace when I am alone.

It was the will of God for man to subdue the flesh. It is the will of man to be whole, one and complete within ourselves, that is our truest reflection of God.

God is a one, a man who is one is God. To be one with God is to be known by him and you to know him. Silence the mind, open the heart and listen. God speaks to the quiet mind.

God speaks to those who know him. God listen to those who know him. God aids those who acknowledge him.

I of myself know nothing, I have no knowledge.  I am lacking wisdom of heart, my mind is weary in meanless work. This life that is not even mines, I live sore.

Where God in the valley,

where’s the light in a cave

Where’s peace in unity

Poor folks asking me for money, only to remind me that I’m serving a cruel master, money. This enitiy that’s not distributed equally so that few can escape being enslaved  to the production of it. They spend the dollars we labor, we don’t own our money. We buy products to say is ours. If a company can distribute products equally nationwide, why can’t they do the same with money?

The biggest scam is that we are convinced that our money is worth something, it is absolutely worthless. The dollar has no value, over time it’s becoming worthless and we can never have enough.

How to survive in a society where you are constantly in debt? When you can’t pay the rent? Can’t afford to pay for your existence, having time to yourself is expensive. 

You can’t afford to be alone. You pay attention to everyone and everything else but yourself. You don’t even notice you, working mindlessly until you have no identity, no individuality. As if God took no creativity in making you.

You wake up to borrow time, everything, everyone else owns you. You have deadlines, expectations you have to meet. You sleep and eat as a escape, for a moment, I don’t have to be here. I don’t have to exist empty.

Don’t disturb my avoidance.

Don’t empty my trash, I feel less alone in clutter and junk. My stuff keeps me company.

I will never tell you my problems, I would never tell you my issues.

No love letters to write I miss you. I don’t want my mind to wander away from you because I don’t want to lost you. Thoughts of you to keep you near, so I can be glad when you are not here.

I can’t be truthful without being controversial,  I can’t reason with myself. 

Can you stand on God’s word? – 9:00PM

Can you stand naked before God?

Death is to be disconnected from God. When God cuts you off, you die.

No greater poverty than to be disconnected from you heaven father.

Let’s hold hands so that even though we are apart we are still connected

Lies and dishonesty creates disharmony with the God in me.

I been alone for so long that the wild parts of me have grown and I can’t change it to conform to this modern society.

A crackhead trying to adapt to modern society is like a alien trying to be human.

I think we all hunger and thirst for truth.

From my weakness, I find my greatest strengths and build them. My vulnerable is my superpower. In my authenticity I find my strengths.

I realize that certain women’s anger come from being unheard.

Who can build a mirror from broken glass and get a perfect reflection? We are all imperfect versions of who God created us to be.

People be like, “you worked hard for that Dr. In your name” but at the same time, you also paid for it. If I gave 100,000 free tuition, they’ll be alot more doctors in the world.

Jesus is the son of God
Jesus is the sun of God
Sun gives light
Light gives knowledge
Knowledge gives wisdom
Wisdom gives understanding
Understand gives love
Love is light.

Jesus is the knowledge of God made manifest.
To know Jesus is to know God.
He who knows God knows all things.
The oneness of God is to know God and to be known by God.
I much rather live a life that God can take pleasure in my ways, than to live for self and I take pleasure in my ways.

Better it is to sacrifice for God than to gain for self.

Serving self is the illusion of serving God.
One of the devil's greatest tricks is to decieve you into believing that serving yourself is the same as serving God.

The true reflection of God is in sacrifice and serving others.

Truly those who serve God is serving their best interest.

People can always justify what they do to themselves and others but can you convince God?

You cannot do it by using cunning words and slick talk, you can only do it by using his words or better yet "The Word" which is christ.

All talk is foolishness to God if it is not by God.
If I speak the word of God, I speak words of wisdom.

By Christ we can be forgive our sins.
By Christ we find salvation.
By Christ we find grace which leads to his Righteousness.
By Christ we find a hope for glory.
By Christ we find deliverance.

If you bond with someone from a weak place then the foundation of that relationship is weak.

Any bond that’s based in fear is weak.

  • Fear of missing out
  • Fear of being alone
  • Fear of poverty
  • Fear of isolation

Those who live in Fear are the children of Death.

Those who live in faith are the children of the true life.

From the grave to the sky.

We are spiritual being therefore our bond is spiritual.

Remain faithful to God, eventually things will workout.

What’s the point of saying that you are a Christian if you’re really no different.

To be Christian is to be set aside, other than, different.

Church is supposed to transform society, yet it’s been conforming to society.

Allowing wicked and corruption in to the point where the virtue of the church is none.

Church has become a cover-up for people sins. Guilt folks can come and play innocent, only seeming good without carrying the virtue of God.

Im not going to fit into the social molds, it wasn’t designed for me.

You never judge the evil of those above you.

Death is just basically God cutting you off from himself – 8:56PM
