[23] The Sermon on the Ridge

Happy are you when you care about God, for God will appoint you to care for all mankind
Happy are you when you care about your brother, for you have more brothers than you can possibly imagine, all of whom will one day care for you.
Happy are those deserted by their loved ones, for God has not deserted you and he never will. In fact he will mend every broken bond of love you ever had and make them all indestructible.
Happy are those abused by men and by angels for you will see the righteousness of God executed on all your abusers, abuse by abuse, and abuser by abuser, and you will have perfect justice.
Happy are you men when you are destroyed by the women you love, for you will be born again by the woman God loves and chose to be his wife.
Happy are you women when you struggle alone to raise your kids, for your kids will be with you for ever. They will raise you up and they will honour you long after the stars have burnt out.
Happy are you when your love is trashed and rejected and treated as worthless by man, for you will understand and value how much you are loved by God. 
Happy are you when your government robs you today, for your government will repay you many times over tomorrow.
Happy are you when your government lies to you today, for your government tomorrow will expose every one of those lies, for your personal entertainment!
Happy are you when you seek to save the world, or the environment, or your brother, for though all of your efforts may fail, God will succeed in saving you.
Happy are you when you seek to enrich the lives of others with your hard work and your creativity. For God will enrich your life with his hard work and with his creativity and you will reap so much more than you have sowed.
Happy are you when you reach for the stars, for God will bring every one of them within your reach
.
Happy are you who are addicted to drugs, to sex, to drink or even to sin, for God is more addicted to you than you will ever be to those things.
Happy are you when you sigh and groan at the reckless self indulgence of world leaders, for this is your training to replace them.
Happy are you when you see with your mind what you cannot see with your eyes, for now you are a son of God.
Happy are you when you fight the cancer of corruption, for the day will come when you can cure it.
Happy are you when you see the futility of sin. For you just passed the exam for indefinitely lasting life.
Happy are you when you lose for righteousness sake, for you have won the only game that counts.
Happy are you when you lose your job, for you shall create more jobs than you can possibly imagine.
Happy are you when you lose your house, for ye shall have it replaced with a galaxy.
Happy are you when you fail at everything you do, for you will be God's greatest success stories.
Happy are you poor, for you are rich. You are rich beyond your wildest dreams.
Happy are you hungry, for your hunger is your food.
Happy are the sick, for Jesus has conquered all sickness and so will you.
Yes, happy even are the miserable, for God will wipe every tear from your eyes.
