Sermon on the mount

  1. 1. Recap
  2. 2. Recap He invoked no angels for himself in the midst of his trials, but sent them for John. Power only to help others. V 4 Luke - "And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season."This victory over the devil at this time, was not the final triumph in the struggle between Jesus, the embodied God, and Satan, the fallen angel of light. 
  3. 3. Sermon on the Mount Longest doctrinal sermon by Christ Contains the central tenants of Christian Discipleship To be Blessed? Is it work to FEEL blessed? I am blessed because...10
  4. 4. New Teachings Supersede The Old Testament Rough task.
  5. 5. Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom ofheaven.Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst afterrighteousness: for they shall be filled.Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

(New Testament, Matthew, Chapter 5)
  7. 7. Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed= fortunate Contrite, humility
  8. 8. Blessed are they that mourn:for they shall becomforted. Counter intuitive.  Not fortunate if you are mourning. What does this mean?Blessed are the meek:for they shall inherit the earth. Gentle, forgiving. Those who have suffered.
  9. 9. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.Joseph Smith read the bible as a young boy for a few years before he got to James1:5. The reading had changed him. Read with intent to understand, ponder. This establishes belief, which produces faith. When he knelt in the woods he had prepared himself for revelation. He got a little more than he expected...
  10. 10. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Close your eyes:)  Where are you? Can you see with your heart? Can you feel something without complete comprehension? Ultimately I believe certain things because of what I feel. Let me explain...I feel my own soul, it exists within me. It confirms to me that I am a son of God. Andthough I may be week in obedience I am resolute in my faith of my divine heritage. Hardheartedness Without guile To see.  Hope, Faith, knowledge. To see.  What do you see?
  11. 11. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.When do we feel peace? Strange, Ive been preparing this for the last hour and I feel incredibly peaceful. Not even really hungry ;)Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Distress, suffering, trouble. Blessed are they who havestandards. Who accept certain principles and thus often live without the approval of the crowd.
  12. 12. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, andpersecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 2nd level. Lack of approval to premeditatedpersecution. Because you are good sometimes others seek you out to mock you. To embarrass you. It will come. Can you stand when the winds blow. Kylie, Farrell.
