Friend, Jesus spoke the following Words to the multitudes who had begun to follow Him, at the beginning of His Ministry.
Picture yourself, walking many miles to be where He was; to hear Him; to find out for yourself if this man was a fool, a charlatan or was He the Promised Messiah.
This is how He began.
He is speaking to you, right now, today.
Let your heart hear.
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for their's is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn; for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek; for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they that which do hunger and thirst after Righteousness; for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful; for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for Righteousness's sake; for their's is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake.
Rejoice and be exceedlingly glad; for great is your reward in Heaven; for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
