MATTHEW CHAPTER 5
1 When he saw the crowds he went up into the mountain; and after he sat down his disciples came to him [So he sits down upon his throne in the Kingdom on 2017Ab5 on earth in Zoar]
2 and he opened his mouth [He, the 1NC reserves keep their mouths shut until they go up the mountain of the LWs] and began teaching them, saying:
3 Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need, since the kingdom of the heavens belongs to them [the spiritual beggars, those who see their lack of spirituality. these are the ones who will own the kingdom, they will be the kings].
4 Happy are those who mourn, since they will be comforted [all of them will be comforted. There will be a resurrection of everyone, of both the righteous into the kingdom and the unrighteous into the Kingdom].
5 Happy are the mild-tempered ones, since they will inherit the earth [inherit mean own a piece of which mean have an administrative position in, which means rule over - for Moses was the meekest by far. This is a feudal symbolism, the peasants used to be owned by the Lord]
6 Happy are those hungering and thirsting for righteousness, since they will be filled [The ones thirsting for it will be judges in the Kingdom, they will give out what they crave. The ones hungering for it will see and be given justice]
7 Happy are the merciful, since they will be shown mercy [1AC criteria, to be a citizen].
8 Happy are the pure in heart, since they will see God [This is a step toward divinity, the long term goal. Those who are pure in heart, have so great a love for the truth that they can divorce any perceived consequences to themselves from their search].
9 Happy are the peacemakers, since they will be called 'sons of God.' [they will be born again. And all sons get an inheritance, therefore they are all kings or lords. They are not called sons of God in this system. But they will be in the next].
10 Happy are those who have been persecuted for righteousness' sake, since the kingdom of the heavens belongs to them.
11 Happy are you when people reproach you and persecute you and lyingly say every sort of wicked thing against you for my sake. [9 happinesses are 9 months of happy teaching on the mount of Zoar to the crowds from 2017Ab5 to 2018Iyyar14, the end of Zoar]
12 Rejoice and exult, since your reward is great in the heavens; for in that way they persecuted the prophets prior to you.
13 you are the salt of the earth [The earth is the true church. Salt is the preservative of the flesh of the church and the seasoning of the food of the church]; but if the salt [literal salt cannot become foolish, but the pillars of the church] becomes foolish [mwrainw, meaning to be foolish, not to lose saltiness!] how will its saltiness be restored? [how will their sanity be restored? By their leaving the fallen church and joining the next true church] It is no longer usable for anything but to be thrown outside to be trampled on by men. [The true church is disfellowshipped and its congregation is oppressed by men, who claim to be saints but are nothing but men]
14 you are the light of the world. A city cannot be hidden when situated upon a mountain [it can when in a valley].
15 People light a lamp and set it, not under the measuring basket/bushel [The LWs hid their doctrinal light under the measuring basket of their nuclear terrorism chronology. And Elijah4 spent all his money on options contracts for bushels of wheat], but upon the lampstand, and it shines upon all those in the house.
16 Likewise let your light shine before men, that they may see your fine works and give glory to your Father who is in the heavens.
17 Do not think I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I came, not to destroy, but to fulfill [the law is just a prophetic as the prophets];
18 for truly I say to you that sooner would heaven and earth pass away than for one iota [the smallest letter in the Greek alphabet] or one fine point/horn [distinguishing feature of a letter] to pass away from the Law by any means and not all things take place [Jesus became a curse, taking away not the justice of the law but the curse of the law and its penalties. He removed the requirement to sacrifice by sacrificing himself. But the law has a shadow of the things to come. It is prophetic, like all scripture]
19 Whoever, therefore, breaks one of these least commandments and teaches mankind to that effect, he will be called 'least' in relation to the kingdom of the heavens. As for anyone who does them and teaches them, this one will be called 'great' in relation to the kingdom of the heavens [the first church in each presence teaches elementary Christianity wherein there is no law but love and mercy and faith. This breaks the greater meaning of the commandments of Moses which Jesus did not destroy. He ends the penalties and the sacrifices and the physical laws. Today we are under the greater commandments that the law foreshadowed for by law is accurate knowledge of sin. So the one that teaches the greater meaning of the law of Moses is greater in the Kingdom. So water baptised LWs are greater than water baptised JWs in the kingdom]
20 For I say to you that if your righteousness does not abound more than that of the Scribes and Pharisees [writing committee and the Governing Body of the Watchtower in the greater meaning], you will by no means enter into the kingdom of the heavens [become a saint].
21 you heard that it was said to those of ancient/primal times [i.e. in the days of Adam], 'You must not murder; but whoever commits a murder will be accountable to the court of justice.'
22 However, I say to you that everyone who continues wrathful with his brother will be accountable to the court of justice [of your conscience]; but whoever says to his brother: fool! [raka] [senseless, worthless, brain-dead, blockhead, insulting him] will be accountable to the Sanhedrin [of the true church]; whereas whoever says, 'You [godless] moron!' [mwroV] [The Greek word carries the sense of faithless one. So you are saying that there is no way you will be saved] will be liable to the fiery Gehenna [stop judging that you may not be judged. With the measure that you are measuring out it will be measured out to you].
23 If, then, you are bringing your gift to the altar and you there remember that your brother has something against you,
24 leave your gift there in front of the altar, and go away; first make your peace with your brother, and then, when you have come back, offer up your gift.
25 Be about settling matters quickly with the one complaining against you at law [when someone brings a new understanding about church law, the church should discuss it fully and take it seriously and act upon the result of those discussions], while you are with him on the way there [the Watchtower and Laodicea both refused to do this], that somehow the complainant may not turn you over to the judge [Jesus], and the judge to the court attendant [holy spirit], and you get thrown into prison [of Babylon, a false church, or perhaps a prison of ones own making. The LWs made an interpretational prison for themselves with their wait for the fire sign and wait for wheat prices doctrine. The truth is that the LWs can see JW mistakes a mile off and would never have made them. But likewise the JWs can see LW mistakes a mile off and would never have made them. The absolute tragedy is that we did not communicate. The fault for that lies with them not us. That is why the LWs are still a true church but the JWs and the Laodiceans are not ].
26 I say to you for a fact, You will certainly not come out from there until you have paid over the last Quadrans [a fourth part of an ass. Meaning a 4th part of an assarion. But cryptically the LWs are the 4th part of the true Christian church which is pictured in the bible by an ass ridden by the king on palm Sunday]
27 you heard that it was said, 'You must not commit adultery.'
28 But I say to you that everyone that keeps on looking at a woman so as to have a passion for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
29 If, now, that right eye of yours is making you stumble [right eye is connect to the right hemisphere which is ones parallel processing heart, the seat of ones desire, whereas the left eye is connect to the left brain which is the logical sequential processing hemisphere, or the mind], tear it out and throw it away from you. For it is more beneficial to you for one of your members to be lost to you than for your whole body to be pitched into Gehenna [a non corporeal existence, whereby you lose all of your body members] [This advice applies to the Watchtower who should disfellowship Laodicea in order that their whole body does not go into Gehenna].
30 Also, if your right hand is making you stumble, cut it off and throw it away from you. For it is more beneficial to you for one of your members to be lost than for your whole body to land in Gehenna [The Watchtower should let the 1NC reserves go rather than losing their whole body in Gehenna].
31 Moreover it was said, 'Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.'
32 However, I say to you that everyone divorcing his wife, except on account of fornication, makes her a subject for adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
33 Again you heard that it was said to those of ancient/original/primal times [i.e. in the days of Adam], 'You must not swear without performing, but you must pay your vows to Jehovah.'
34 However, I say to you: Do not swear at all, neither by heaven, because it is God's throne;
35 nor by earth, because it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, because it is the city of the great King.
36 Nor by your head must you swear, because you cannot turn one hair white or black [those attached to the head of the church to Jesus can pass the spirit baptism test becoming white or can fail it becoming black].
37 Just let your word Yes mean Yes, your No, No; for what is in excess of these is from the wicked one.
38 you heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.'
39 However, I say to you: Do not resist him that is wicked; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other also to him.
40 And if a person wants to go to court with you and get possession of your inner garment, let your outer garment also go to him;
41 and if someone under authority impresses you into service for a mile, go with him 2 miles.
42 Give to the one asking you, and do not turn away from one that wants to borrow from you [without interest].
43 you heard that it was said, 'You must love your neighbour and hate your enemy.'
44 However, I say to you: Continue to love your enemies and to pray for those persecuting you;
45 that you may prove yourselves sons of your Father who is in the heavens, since he makes his sun rise upon wicked people and good and makes it rain upon righteous people and unrighteous.
46 For if you love those loving you, what reward do you have? Are not also the tax collectors doing the same thing?
47 And if you greet your brothers only, what extraordinary thing are you doing? [there is going to be either a very extraordinary greeting or a group of very extraordinary brothers turning up in the true church] Are not also the people of the nations doing the same thing?
48 you must accordingly be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 6
1 Take good care not to practice your righteousness in front of men in order to be observed by them; otherwise you will have no reward with your Father who is in the heavens.
2 Hence when you go making gifts of mercy, do not blow a trumpet ahead of you, just as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be glorified by men. Truly I say to you, They are having their reward in full.
3 But you, when making gifts of mercy, do not let your left hand know what your right is doing,
4 that your gifts of mercy may be in secret; then your Father who is looking on in secret will repay you.
5 Also, when you pray, you must not be as the hypocrites; because they like to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the broad ways to be visible to men. Truly I say to you, They are having their reward in full.
6 You, however, when you pray, go into your private room and, after shutting your door, pray to your Father who is in secret; then your Father who looks on in secret will repay you.
7 But when praying, do not say the same things over and over again, just as the people of the nations do, for they imagine they will get a hearing for their use of many words.
8 So, do not make yourselves like them, for God your Father knows what things you are needing before ever you ask him.
9 you must pray, then, this way: 'Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified.
10 Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.
11 Give us today our bread for this day;
12 and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the wicked one.'
14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you;
15 whereas if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16 When you are fasting, stop becoming sad-faced like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Truly I say to you, They are having their reward in full.
17 But you, when fasting, grease your head and wash your face,
18 that you may appear to be fasting, not to men, but to your Father who is in secrecy; then your Father who is looking on in secrecy will repay you.
19 Stop storing up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust consume, and where thieves break in and steal.
20 Rather, store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
22 The lamp of the body is the eye. If, then, your eye is pure/true/focussed, your whole body will be bright;
23 but if your eye is wicked, your whole body will be dark. If in reality the light that is in you is darkness, how great that darkness is!
24 No one can slave for 2 masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stick to the one and despise the other. You cannot slave for God and for Riches.
25 On this account I say to you: Stop being anxious about your souls as to what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your bodies as to what you will wear. Does not the soul mean more than food and the body than clothing?
26 Observe intently the birds of heaven, because they do not sow seed or reap or gather into storehouses; still your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth more than they are?
27 Who of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his life span?
28 Also, on the matter of clothing, why are you anxious? Take a lesson from the lilies of the field, how they are growing; they do not toil, nor do they spin;
29 but I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these [The greatest of man's glory is nothing compared to the glory of nature, the intricacy of the work of the angels. The greater lilies of the field as the sons of the 1AC they are arrayed in Kingdom bodies and Solomon loses his soul in Gehenna].
30 If, now, God thus clothes the vegetation of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much rather clothe you, you with little faith?
31 So never be anxious and say, 'What are we to eat?' or, 'What are we to drink?' or, 'What are we to put on?'
32 For all these are the things the nations are eagerly pursuing. For your heavenly Father knows you need all these things.
33 Keep on, then, seeking first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all these [other] things will be added to you.
34 So, never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties. Sufficient for each day is its own badness.
