THe Principle Of Jesus
The ten Principles Of Jesus.
In 1995 I sat at my desk at school and decided that I should leave something more than physical wealth to my family and friends so I hand wrote this article and put it with my will. I was going through my papers and came across it and Started to read it and realized that this was not a simple article and should not be left until I am gone to be seen.
I wrote this article at age 48 and now I am sixty and I think it is time for the whole world to see it. I am typing it just as it was written no changes. All the principle comes from the Bible from the book of Psalm and the New Testament. They are my interpretations ,how I saw it then and I still stand by it. It was addressed To my Children Dwight Murray and Garth Robinson,my Husband Reuben Murray ,my Grand Daughter Sabrina Robinso, my friends ,and to all who Know me. But I now offer it to the world at no charge
Jesus said I am the resurrection and the light any man believe in me though he were dead yet will he live again. Blessed are they who die in the Lord that they may rest from their labour and their work follow them.
What shall one do to inherit eternal life ? Love the Lord thy God with all your heart and with all your soul and your neighbor as yourself.
Never lay a straw in anyone’s way, say no evil of anyone although you can prove it
Ask of the Lord and it shall be given unto you. Seek about the Lord and you shall find him , Knock and he shall open unto you. Would you ask him for bread and he give you a serpent? The Lord knows how to give Good Gifts, you should also know how to give good gifts.
Remember the Holy Spirit is the best Gift given to man. It will guide you into all truth . It will direct your ways and though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death you need not fear any evil. The Lord’s presence will be with you and will cheer and comfort you.
Do not judge and you will not be judged, do not condemn and you will not be condemned Forgive and you will be forgiven. Give and it shall be given unto you but never give because of what you expect to receive in return just give as it is needed. The Holy Spirit will direct you in all your ways.
A good measure, pressed down, shaken and running over will be poured out in your lap, for with the measure you use it will be measured to you .
Never try to look for a speck in your brother’s eyes for you will only truly see it when you have removed the plank hidden in yours.
No good tree bear bad fruit nor does bad tree bear good fruit; by your fruit you shall be known. The fruit of a good tree are the fruits are the fruits of the spirit of Jesus given to us through the Holy Ghost. They are love, peace, long suffering, gentleness, meekness, kindness, faith.
Seek first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness and all other things will be added. Do not be afraid to seek it for your Father in Heaven is well please to give it to you.
Lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven for what will it profit you if you gain all the treasures of the world but lose eternal life. Therefore remember always the poor they are God babies ,he loves them dearly and they are heirs to His kingdom.
He that dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of his Almighty shadow. Oh how good and refreshing to have the Almighty overshadowing you in all you ways and doings. For he has set a boundary where no evil will come near you .When you cry he will hear according to his loving kindness and if you ask he will blot out your foolish transgressions.
Except the Lord build your house you labour in vain to build it, unless the Lord keep it your dogs, your watchmen , your body guards your surveillance camera are there in vain.
Blessed are you when you fear the Lord and try walking in all His ways . Many times you may be afflicted but if you cry to the Lord out of the depths of you affliction it will overcome you.
Oh give thanks to the Lord for his Mercies endure for ever from everlasting to Everlasting He is God.
The law of the lord is used to measure. You cannot know if you sin if there was not the law which acts as a school master to keep you in all truth. You can only commit sin when you go against the law of God.
Bear in mind that doing all that is written in the Law will not save you. It will not give you eternal life. It is there to show you when you are going wrong. It helps you to walk uprightly (EX:20:1-7 Mark:12:29-31. ) following them do have consequences, both social and spiritual.
Eternal Life can only be gained by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ .Ask for His forgiveness of sin and try to follow the Principles of Jesus. Eternal life is a gift given to mankind by Jesus when he gave his life in atonement for sin. The Choice is yours to accept or reject so great a salvation.
The most difficult part of the Ten Commandments to keep is the 4th Commandment. God worked six days to create the earth and rested on the seventh. He blessed and hollowed the seventh day. He asked mankind to worship on that day and take it as a delight.
Here are Some Principles That Jesus Stood For:
1. Love for one another 2. Sharing
3.Healing for the sick 4. Baptizing
5.Worshiping on Sabbath 6.Praying to this father
7.Pay taxes 8.Attending weddings
9. Feeding the hungry 10.Loving Children
11.Telling stories with good morals 12. Preaching the gospel of Salvation
13. For giving one another 14. Communing with the Holy Spirit.
I Leave with you some lines from the song which has been my compass on this my life’s journey.
All the Way My Savior Leads Me
“All the way my savior leads me , What have I to ask beside,
Can I doubt this tender mercies Who through life has been my guide
Heavenly Peace divines’ comfort , Here by faith with him to dwell ,
For I know what’re befalls me Jesus Do’eth all thing well,
for I know what’er befalls me ,Jesus do’eth all thing well.
N:B. Always remember spiritual things are spiritually discerned and to the spiritually blind individual this is a whole bag of crap.
If you follow the above it can only make you a better person but what a terrible disappointment and a terrible waste of a precious life if you did the opposite because you came across this article and saw as a bunch of crap.
