Jesus said,"Blessed are ye"

I saw a crowd gathered, sitting along the hills. In the midst of them a man sat who spoke. His voice echoed as thunder, as the sounds of a 1,000 trumpets, yet it was gentle to the ear, with a tenderness and a passion, no reason to fear. He spoke in words piercing to the heart, yet gentle to the soul.He spoke with passion and grace, He spoke with pure love to every face.

I had to see, I had to listen if I dare. It must of been over 5,000 there, all I could do was stand and stare.

Repeatedly He said,"Blessed are ye", of every kind of man as if He had a special plan.

He said," Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the Kingdom of God".

The poor in spirit, that could be us all!

He said,"Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted".

I have mourned alone from sorrow in my past, will He take these pains and them off cast?

He said,"Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth".

Is this the Christ to reign on earth, to set us free from bondage since birth?

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

Is this the coming KING, told of from old, the prophets words foretold, to be fulfilled?

He said,"Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy".

So if I show mercy then mercy shall I obtain? I guess what I sow that I shall reap?

He said,"Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God".

Children are really the only ones I know pure in heart, is He saying we need to be child like at heart?

He said,"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God".

God please grant us peace.

His words were striking and convicting, my heart began to race as I glanced over each amazed person listening in his place.

He spoke with authority and grace and left a message that changed my life.

Standing and stretching out HIs arms, lifting HIs voice He proclaimed,"Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven".

Twice He said this,"theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven", why why would He repeat His words?

He talked as though we are all to follow HIm and warned us what may happen if we do, but HIs words were of power and assurance.

And this was the last I heard, He said,"Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and shall persecute you and shall say all manners of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in Heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you".

Is this HIm? Is this the one of whom Isaiah spoke? Is this the baby called Immanuel, from the seed of Jesse? Is He The Alpha and Omega, The Rose of Sharon, The Lilly of the Valley, The Bright and Morning Star? Is this my Jesus The Word, The Way?

We listened to HIs words, some as much as three days, we were all astonished all amazed. He knew people were hungry and asked His men to gather all they can, some said it was just 5 loaves and 2 fishes, yet He blessed it and the food did not stop, everyone ate, we were filled in our bellies and in our spirit.

I always felt my Lord was nigh as one day I wandered back by, only to see a cross atop a hill pointed to the sky.



As I walked closer I could see it was Him hanging about to die.

Once again I heard Him speak, but this time beaten and weak, Roman soldiers mocked Him, others just dropped and shook their heads as they passed by.

Then He spoke,"Father forgive: for they know not what they do".

I now know it's true, He is The King of Kings The Lord of Lords, for in all His travail He looked to a thief hanging by His side and said to him," Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise".

Even as the blood ran from His face He had time for grace, I wondered where the grace and love was for Him? Nearly all His followers left HIm except His mother and one disciple. He said other words as He was about to die,

He simply said,"I thirst', He said,"My God, My God why hast Thou forsaken Me?

"Father into Thy hands I commend My spirit".

Then finally,"It is finished" and He died!

The One so true,that spoke the words of power and authority to me and you, was lifeless hung from a tree. He said He is coming back again that death will not hold Him in the ground.

I want to see His face and hold HIs nailed scarred hands, I want to put my hand to His side where the spear was thrust, I want to see His home prepared for the just.

Surely this is The Son of God, I long to know Him as He knows me, to live in Heaven's victory.

Lord God forgive me,

Lord Jesus hear me,

Through Your Holy Spirit feed me,

that I may teach others of what I have seen from You,

In the name of JESUS Amen!

This is a marvellous reflection on Jesus and the Beatitudes, that he passed on for lowly man. Thank you for the tremendous Hub.

Brother Dave.

This is absolutely beautiful Michael! And a gift that you have shared it with us!

Even in his darkest hours of suffering, Jesus was concerned for the very ones who were torturing him. And for the thief that hung beside him.

As he bore the stench of our sins, and he bled for our sins, and died for our sins, he demonstrated "amazing grace" through it all. Thank you for this beautiful reminder that we were bought, at so precious a price.

I loved this!

"Is this Him? Is this the one of whom Isaiah spoke? Is this the baby called Immanuel, from the seed of Jesse? Is He The Alpha and Omega, The Rose of Sharon, The Lilly of the Valley, The Bright and Morning Star? Is this my Jesus The Word, The Way?" HE IS THE GREAT 'I AM'!! Hallelujah!!
