“TRUTH isn’t about the messenger, it’s about the message. I didn’t create the Truth that I willingly gave my physical life to share with the world. I merely illuminated what was always and is forever true— the eternal truth for everyone—because if what I embodied and lived was for only one person, what was the point? My life and messages serve as examples of what everyone can be—what you can be, and are. It doesn’t matter who gets the credit because only one truly receives the credit—the Originator, the Creator, the Infinite, God.” ~ Jesus, “Divine Messages from Jesus”
The Beatitudes, Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 5, vs 3-12, the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount
The Beatitudes, or blessings, or the be-attitudes, are the core of the core teachings Jesus came here to share. Power fills these declarations of joy.
The phrase “blessed are,” when the original Greek word is translated accurately, means “Oh, the godlike joy of…” The reason that is important is they are celebrations of what exists right now, at this moment. They are exultant shouts of joy for the Divine blessings that nothing in this physical world can ever take away from us.
Please listen to the audio recording shown on the right sidebar (Joy of the Beatitudes) , or read in the 2018-09-16 JOY OF THE BEATITUDES, for how the original meaning of the words Jesus used inspires us to celebrate the joy when we open our hearts and minds to the Eternal Truth. Please listen carefully, because these sayings might instill an inner shift within you, changing your life in amazing ways.
I give much credit to William Barclay’s “The Gospel of Matthew, Vol. 1” from which I gathered the original meanings of Jesus words in Greek and Aramaic, and also copied some of the wording he used so beautifully. I love studying the Barclay series for their in-depth history and definitions and give thanks to Barclay for giving his life so that we may better understand these incredible teachings.
I’m sharing an amazing story with you of how my husband and I were stunned by the Divine when, during what I thought was a fun game-type experiment, a message came through that changed the direction of our lives. The incredible inner journey from disbelief, to fear, to not only acceptance but excitement, and then, to follow-through, might be an inspiration for you to finally follow the urgings of your own heart. You really do have heart urgings, seeds planted there by God for you to nurture and develop for the magnificence you are meant to experience while in the physical. Do you listen to them? I urge you to listen to the audio link on the right sidebar and perhaps you’ll find the courage to follow your own dreams.
The audio link on the right sidebar is from a talk I gave at our Mendocino Center for Spiritual Living In Fort Bragg, CA that I believe you will enjoy hearing.
