- (1) In the Bible Jesus teaches us Eternal Lessons that are not of the world, but are of God…
“Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath. Let him that stole steal no more (from the helpless and needy): but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth..”
In the most challenging of circumstances he demonstrated his Absolute Authority and righteous indignation…
- (2) In regards to “Hypocrisy” Jesus dealt harshly with those had appeared pious on the outside, but had hearts that were far away from God’s Truth, communicated through His Son.
“Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull put the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.”
Before you are able to handle and deal with others you must be transformed into your Divine Self where you may speak of God.
- (3) Jesus got very angry when people would speak of the language of men, and not of God..
1 Corinthians 14:2
“For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue defileth himself; but he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to Edification and, and Exhortation, and Comfort (Truth that provides Freedom).”
- (4) Of all the moments in his life when he became angry, it was most apparent when he drove out the money changers (Greed). They used and abused the church, making it a machine for economic activity, as opposed to promoting spiritual vitality (The Breath of Life)…This symbolizes a wrong heart that idolizes money.
“And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer (Scripture); but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the blind and lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.”
- (5) It is the desire of Jesus that people have a heart on fire for God (meaning Passion for Christ) and not be lukewarm or just doing enough to portray themselves as Christians…
“So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods (earthly), and have no need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.”
One can never learn it all…God’s truth is ongoing and eternal, continually growing and expanding your mind…Middle of the road faith is basically not putting God first, and exemplifies a believer unwilling to succeed in spiritual matters..
- (6) Most people did not take time to listen and appreciate God’s miracles of healing and people looking on accused Jesus of doing “good works” on the Sabbath. The hard truth is that legalism prevented them from having a right heart before God’s presence.
“And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.”
- (7) The Scribes and Pharisees were on bad terms with Jesus because they were using their image of “superiority” over people that they themselves did not possess…
“For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments.”
This is an example of a heart that lord’s expectations over others that are not of the Holy Spirit, and it also exalts doctrines of men (worldly standards) and not of the Word of God.
- (8) One of the secret challenges that Jesus presented to believers was a spiritual offering of prayer (seeking him through the Word), fasting and tithes and offering (spiritual offerings of Truth bringing those that did not know him closer to God)…He warned people not to act out these ways in order to be praised by men, but rather to speak the truth when being tested or battling…Especially, in doubting God…Self-rightoeusness only creates a fog and does not allow one to perceive the Kingdom which is to flow, as a stream of everlasting water, through your life…It simply diminishes your capability of being humble and adhering to God’s careful instruction…
Bottom Line: Jesus did Exactly what he needed to do in order to accomplish his mission and fulfill God’s plan…
Psalms 78:49 (Pay Careful Attention to this Scripture in order to understand Prophecy)
“He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil Angels among them…”
