Pt#4 (God's Olive Tree Plan, From It's Roots To It's Fruit)- (7-11-20)
The Revelation of ‘The Kingdom of God’ Revealed with a Simple ‘Olive Tree’! That’s Right, anything you ever wanted to know about ‘The Kingdom of God’ is ‘Clearly Seen and Understood, By The Olive Tree That He Made’! What began with a Promise from God to Our Father Abraham, according to ‘The Family Olive Tree’ recorded for in (Matthew 1), has been Pasted down from generation to generation, producing Holy Fruit from ‘The Hebrew Root System’ that began with ‘The Patriarchs’ (ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB). If we’ve been paying attention, we can all agree that within God’s ‘ONEOLIVE TREE KINGDOM’, are ‘Both Jew and Greek, Male and Female, Bond and Free, Rich and Poor, Black, White, Red, Yellow, Brown….Everyone, from the beginning of time are Welcome to be a part of ‘God’s One Olive Tree Plan (KINGDOM)’, there’s room for all! Therefore, Jesus’ ‘SERMON ON THE MOUNT MESSAGE’, is a Message explaining ‘THE INNER WORKINGS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD’! Learning about the Roots to The Fruit of The Olive Tree, acts as The Biblical Guide, leading us ‘The diverse Levels of The KINGDOM OF GOD’! Therefore, what do citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven look like? Jesus said that they are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness; they are the merciful; they are the pure in heart; they are the peacemakers. But we’re also surprised to learn, that they are the poor in spirit, the meek, the mourning and the persecuted! As we begin to work through Matthew 5, we are immediately confronted by a language barrier, which almost seems to make several seemly contradictions. For example: ‘In what way are the poor in spirit, the mourners, the downtrodden and the persecuted to be understood as The Blessed? It certain sounds like a contradiction! But by reading the Beatitudes with a Hebrew perspective while using Hebrew glasses instead of Greek glasses, all the contradictions disappear making the point of Jesus’ discipleship message, loud and clear!
