The Beatitudes


God blesses you who are hungry now, for you will be satisfied. God blesses you who weep now, for the time will come when you will laugh with joy.

God blesses you who are hated and excluded and mocked and cursed because you are identified with me, the Son of Man.

“When that happens, rejoice! Yes, leap for joy! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were also treated that way by your ancestors.

“What sorrows await you who are rich, for you have your only happiness now.

What sorrows await you who are satisfied and prosperous now, for a time of awful hunger is before you. What sorrows await you who laugh carelessly, for your laughing will turn to mourning and sorrow.

Luke 6:21-25

FOUR NEEDS OF EVERY CHRISTIAN


In this short life on earth, we have needs that need to be met. That is why the people pressurize the government to meet their promises. Every human being needs the 4 basic things to be able to survive here on earth. The basic needs are shelter, clothing, food and water, and health.
As Christians we also need 4 basic things that can guarantee our passage through this life on earth to Heaven to see our Lord Jesus.
1. We need a life-giver.
All Christians have a life giver in Jesus Christ. He is the only one that can rescue us from our trials and tribulations. Jesus Christ came to die on the cross and whoever believes in him will have a life guard for eternity. John 3:14-15 says “and as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
2. We need Salvation
All born again Christians have Salvation. Without Salvation our live here on earth will be meaningless and worthless.
Acts 4:12
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
If your Salvation is sure, real and true then you need to share the good news to the rest of world. You cannot be saved and remain silent about the joy you have received in the Lord Jesus.
3. We need the Holy Spirit
When Jesus was leaving the disciples, He promised them the Holy Spirit would be their leader and fortress. Without the Holy Spirit many Christians would have it difficult to live the Christian walk of faith. The Holy Spirit speaks to us, guides us, protects us and directs us. The Holy Spirit transforms us and makes us different from among them.
Romans 8:12-16
Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
KJV
4. We need a future and home
We all retire to our various homes after the end of the day. Likewise, after our life on earth is over, we retire to see our dear Lord Jesus. Jesus our life giver and savior is preparing a place for us-His Children. We need to know that our sufferings and persecutions will soon end and we go home to dine with Jesus. Heaven and Hell is real, it’s going to be our address, and you decide which address you will be located.
Revelation 21:1-8
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
KJV
