Matthew 10 (NIV)

 
Now Matthew 10:

Matthew 10 (NIV) Jesus called His twelve disciples ((ones who PUT His teachings into practical application))to Him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.

2 These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. 6 Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. ((the Israelis were the most oppressed people of His generation)) 7 As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy,[a] drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.

9 “Do not get any gold or silver or copper to take with you in your belts— 10 no bag for the journey or extra shirt or sandals or a staff, for the worker is worth his keep. (( the Holy Spirit will provide the means, and it is not always the way we think that we should be provided for))11 Whatever town or village you enter, search there for some worthy person and stay at their house until you leave. 12 As you enter the home, give it your greeting. 13 If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. 14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet. (( if they listen to MY teaching’s teach, if not walk away))15 Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.

16 “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. ((always call on the Holy Spirit within the Kingdom of God for advice, and what to say))17 Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues. 18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, 20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. ((the Holy Spirit speaks through His disciples in attunement with their Savior))

21 “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. 22 You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

24 “The student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master. ((when you practice what Jesus Christ taught you learn how He thought. John 14:12 states you will do greater than I))25 It is enough for students to be like their teachers, and servants like their masters. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebul, how much more the members of his household!

26 “So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; ((the Holy Spirit gives the disciples of Jesus Christ messages to deliver to the world)) what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. 28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. ((do not be intimidated by the world whatsoever))Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. ((our Heavenly Father knows everything, “past, present, and to come” as Jesus Christ His Son does)) 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. ((His disciples have Eternal Life and Know It))

32 “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. ((teaches His Eternal Life ministry))33 But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven. ((this refers to John 1:12, He makes His disciples the Children of God, not after death, but now))

34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn

“‘a man against his father,
    a daughter against her mother,
a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
36     a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’[c]

37 “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it. ((we must detach from ALL our loved ones, see life as Eternal not temporary and begin to love our Heavenly Father more than EVERYONE in a body; for we are Spirit and death is not real. Luke 9:60 Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” The REASON was and IS, life is not permanent. We have attempted to make the temporary, permanent without understanding that the “future” is 100 % IMAGINED! No one “knows” how long they got, they pretend they will be here “tomorrow”, and this is the REASON for the “Rich Fool” parable.))

40 “Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. 41 Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward. 42 And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.” ((whoever helps His disciples receives Miracles of healings, and any other “perceived troubles” in their lives disappear. We need Not have “trials or tribulations” in this life, He has overcome them all))

Now the excerpt from the book, RADICAL SEEKER:
Forgiveness restores sanity by removing judgment, the precursor to fear. Fear is not real. Fear is the belief that God made death and hell, and this belief is anti Christ. Christ cannot be recognized by a mind in fear. If Love had an opposite it would be fear. However, God did not create fear so it does not exist, except in minds afraid of God.

When we are no longer afraid of What or Who created us, we see that fear was made real by the ego or “devil”, and does not exist in reality. Fear is a thought system all it’s own. With outcomes that “appear” to oppose the will of God.

Everything that you are afraid of right now is not real. The REASON it is not real is because the thing you fear is not here now, but based in a “future event happening.” The “future event”, is based on a fearful future thought has been Atoned for by Jesus Christ!  The thought is not real, surrender it, the thought to the Holy Spirit for correction and He DOES. Have Faith.

It is the thought about the fearful future event that frightens us. This produces the feeling of faithlessness’ in the mind of the disciple, and know that this need not be. Addiction for example stems from thoughts of unworthiness. This produces mental insanity. All mental insanity is fear.

Why do we continue to hold on to thoughts that frighten us? BECAUSE we were never told, so, we do not KNOW, that when Christ resurrected, He resurrected to the “Kingdom of God which is within you.” Luke 17:20-21.

Faith which is the opposite of faithlessness’ allows you to realize that the second coming of Jesus is the resurrection of Christ within the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is not in our stomach, elbow or foot, it is our MIND.

WE ARE SAVED FROM DEATH BY OUR WILLINGNESS TO UNCONDITIONALLY FORGIVE, THUS LOVE EVERYONE.

This acceptance of the Atonement is the reawareness of Love. Love is the only true reality. Fear produces the belief that something is wrong, but it only appears that way to the faithless.
Faith in unconditional forgiveness (70X7) shows you that you never sinned against God, Nor could you. God “test” His creation?!? For what? He is God, He Knows at the outset, the endgame!

There is an Intelligence that is Intelligent. This Intelligence has been trying to get our attention for more than 2000 years. This Intelligence is within and without you. However, we must first recognize this Intelligence within our own conscious mind before we can begin to “understand” who we are and what our divine purpose is outside us.
It is not difficult to understand this Intelligence once you have listened to the Holy Spirit by putting into PRACTICAL APPLICATION the teachings of Jesus Christ. His teachings!!

The blind belief in the Torah was not the Sanhedrin’s downfall. Their downfall was their unwillingness to unconditionally love everything.

God is Love. His plan for the salvation of mankind must be Loving and rooted in LOVE! Every saint or prophet who has ever looked behind the “curtain of fear” has come back to testify that God our Heavenly Father has Divine Plan to prosper you in all your ways. (This was spoken of in Jeremiah 29 and Isaiah 55 just to name two.)

There is a wonderful book written by Merlin Carothers entitled Power of Praise. He teaches his readers to “praise everything” no matter how it may appear. This praise releases our judgment thus allowing perfection to be reestablished in our mind.

Resist not evil, surrender the “evil thought” to the Holy Spirit and He will transform all evil to good, and all fear to Love. No longer fear your thoughts, you are not alone. You don’t even have to believe that Jesus Christ’s Holy Spirit is within your mind, but when you do, He can help you all the more.

Ask the risen savior to reveal Himself to you and He will; And always in a way that you will recognize “His helping hand” without being afraid. He does not wish to frighten us.

Most SINCERE Christian disciples do not initially understand the conscious transformation that must take place “within” for them to see Jesus!
To “see Jesus” means that you believe He resurrected to the Kingdom of God within you. It also means that you accept His second coming.
As you read these words be very honest with yourself.
If Jesus Christ was to knock on your front door would you recognize Him? If you looked out and recognized that it was in fact your savior come to “take you home”, could you even answer the door? Would you have to call someone to say goodbye? OR could you just up and leave everyone and everything behind?

These questions are not answerable to those of us not prepared to enter into the kingdom of heaven, now. We must prepare our minds for what we cannot see and do not understand. This only sounds complicated to those among us not prepared to renounce “hell for heaven.”

Heaven is the awareness of Eternal Life. Heaven is not obtained by a breaking through to another side or in death. It is obtained by a stilled mind first certain Jesus Christ resurrected, and then INTENT on it’s Realization. Heaven is the awareness of perfect oneness without the interruption of fear and judgment. Heaven is the absence of fear. Hell is transformed to heaven when the belief in fear has been removed from our consciousness by the Holy Spirit.

Our job in the Atonement process is ultimately, to come to the awareness of total God dependency. God dependency comes through faith that you are being heard. To be heard or taught by a “Master”, you MUST DO what the Master advocates, and in this case Master Jesus Christ is Advocating His disciples to Love everyone at all cost. He gave us the greatest example of this “love at all cost” and He is asking His disciples to do the same, under Far Less acute or severe circumstances.

And He TELLS US our reward for unconditional forgiveness which is Love, will be both the Vision and the Experience of the Kingdom of Heaven.
Not after a physical death, but now.

“The Kingdom of Heaven is At Hand!”

~ Jesus Christ over 2000 years ago ~
