Several Christians fail to recognise the Chosen ones of God and are not taking on a Christian attitude

This beautiful Summer we may enjoy the fruits of the earth but we can also take so time free to think of the fruits of the spirit. In our free time we can think of what the master teacher had to tell and how he spread his message. The way of him addressing people should be as an example for us.
Since we do have a new gadget, an i-Pad, we tried to enrol at some Facebook Groups and share our thoughts about our Messiah. But at those groups we are often confronted with such vile language,  morally depraved, ignoble or wicked, disgusting, repulsive, coming from the mouth of those who call themselves Christian, we can get red ears or have to close them and sometimes even have to close our eyes for what disgusting things we can see placed by trinitarian Christians.

For those using such awful language the kingdom of God may  still look far away and we can clearly see that often they did not even grasp 10% of Jesus his teaching.

In his days Jesus could find many dens of robbers, and to day he would not find something else in many places. Everywhere we can find churches which charge the people coming along, want to give them guilt feelings if they are not given money, and try to sell many things.

Today’s reading of Matthew chapter 21 tells us about the Nazarene seeing a fig tree by the road and finding nothing on it but leaves. When he said to it,

“Let there be no fruit from you forever!”

Immediately the fig tree withered away.

This reminds us of many people who call themselves Christian but never bring forth any fruit, but also let us think of those who only produce rotten fruit.

First to the Jews a Land was promised. Now with Jesus the people, the Gentiles, also got the opportunity to come to live in that Land of God. To them too is the kingdom given. But like the Jews they too have to produce fruits for God.

The Jewish

“branches were broken off, and you, although a wild olive shoot, were grafted in”
the apostle Paul wrote to the Romans. But he also warns them,
“do not be arrogant toward the branches … if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you” (11:17,21).

So many we hear telling us we are no Christians because we do not accept Jesus as our god, also attack other monotheist people like Jehovah Witnesses, Jews and Muslims. Those attacking the Jews for having killed Jesus and telling them they are cursed by God, do forget God promised them the Holy Country. Many of them do not see that Israel (the people) shall be united in a Land (Israel) as part of the promise to Abraham. And today we can see (part of it) already coming (slowly) in fulfilment.

Those who really love God and believe that Jesus is His only begotten son, the sent one from God and the Messiah, should do their best to produce fruit God can use and which can feed those who do not know Jesus or do not know God yet.

Psalm 37 Humble inheriting the earth

 

“«A Psalm of David.» Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.” (Psalms 37:1 KJ21)

“7  Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him; fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath; fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.” (Psalms 37:7-8 KJ21)

“But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.” (Psalms 37:11 KJ21)

“30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. 31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.” (Psalms 37:30-31 KJ21)

Today we give the word to a rabbi of a small, vibrant, Conservative, congregation in Grand Rapids, MI., whose blog purpose is to explore what it means to make our lives embody Torah.

.

At our previous posting concerning the preparation of 14 Nisan and shedding light on the seven basic qualities we should work on, we may not forget that to reach our goal we also shall need to be patient and when we would light the seventh candle we shall have to think about the humble person who cultivates love and respect.

.

Sometimes it may look so difficult to stand strong in this world where there are not many lovers of God. In that world we should always make sure we act like an example worthy of God. Even when others may think we are fools and weak, let us be assured that our faith in build on hope and trust in the Only One Who gives peace and that what we need.

Embodied Torah

“The humble shall inherit the earth.” (37:11)

In the short run, the kind of assertiveness that edges towards arrogance gets results, but one can get the same results from being confidently humble. An example: An arrogant person will push his way to the front of a group of people to get what he wants before someone else who has been waiting longer. A confidently humble person will recognize those who have been waiting and let them go first and insert himself into the queue in the proper order. The arrogant person cultivates resentment and fear; the humble person cultivates love and respect.
