Confused? Worried? Perplexed? Beatitudes!


Why are you blessed?

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven, Amen

the Bible does warn us against being empty and impoverished in our souls, and urges us to seek spiritual riches instead. Jesus said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21).

But Jesus also said that there is another kind of spiritual poverty—one we should seek. He said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:3). What did He mean? Simply this: We must be humble in our spirits. If you put the word “humble” in place of the word “poor,” you will understand what He meant.

In other words, when we come to God, we must realize our own sin and our spiritual emptiness and poverty. We must not be self-satisfied or proud in our hearts, thinking we don’t really need God. If we are, God cannot bless us. The Bible says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble” (James 4:6).

Pride can take all kinds of forms, but the worst is spiritual pride. Often the richer we are in things, the poorer we are in our hearts. Have you faced your own need of Christ? 

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.gotquestions.org/amp/blessed-are-those-who-mourn.html

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the Earth. Meekness is an attribute of human nature and behavior. It has been defined several ways: righteous, humble, teachable, and patient under suffering, long suffering willing to follow gospel teachings; an attribute of a true disciple.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled, Amen.

Acting in accord with divine or moral law : free from guilt or sin. Morally right.

Righteousness is one of the chief attributes of God as portrayed in the Hebrew Bible. Its chief meaning concerns ethical conduct (for example, Leviticus 19:36; Deuteronomy 25:1; Psalm 1:6; Proverbs 8:20). In the Book of Job the title character is introduced to us as a person who is perfect in righteousness.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

You give you get. Father forgive me as I forgive those who trespass against me. Wow! The Lord’s prayer, this is said so many times in the gospel. 70×7 times, our sin is as a twig cast into the sea. “You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.”
Micah 7:19

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake.

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Eye has not seen or ear heard of what awaits.

However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — The things God has prepared for those who Love Him. 1 Corinthians 2:9

You are the salt of the Earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
