Giving Alms

Seventh Thunder November 29, 2018


Giving alms is in short, distributing the knowledge of God. Of course, people only having an earthly interpretation of the things of the spirit, they believe it is about giving food to the poor, and doing good deeds, forgetting once again that the flesh profits nothing and that Jesus said his words were about the spirit and eternal life.

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

So, in reading the following keep in mind, that it is all about the spirit, and that the bread that is given to the poor in spirit is that hidden manna from Heaven, even as Jesus said, he was the bread from Heaven. The 'Gospel of the Kingdom' is that knowledge from heaven that helps man be born again and transformed from the first man, Adam, the living soul, in which all die, into the last Adam, the quickening spirit, in which all live.

Psalm 41:1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.

The Father did deliver Jesus, raising him up out of the flesh into the spirit.

Luke 17:34 -35 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Two men were on the cross, and one was taken and the other was left behind, for Jesus did not seek to save his physical life which was left behind, but his spirit. I shouldn't have to tell you what the 'Image of a man' that was pierced/wounded by a spear/sword and did live that people worship, and it should be pretty obvious which life people care about. After all, people make a deal about Jesus giving up his life in the flesh, like it is worth more than eternal life in the spirit.

Luke 17:33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. 

The Father knows all, and gives all. He knew we'd fall since the beginning, and he knew that his 'First' of Heaven would disobey him would become the impostor 'Lord God' in this world which he was cast out to. But within the Lord's deception, there was a truth hidden within him, a truth that only the 'Father' reveals to those seeking, and it is the same truth we must sow into the minds of those seeking, so that they too like the Lord God, turn to their 'Father' and say;

Luke 15:18-19 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.

And so the Lord God as Jesus Christ was sent into the world to be the 'Father's' hired servant as the 'Last', and he received his 'Father's' bread, and gave it to those poor in spirit, who are those that are seeking his words of truth.

Proverbs 22:9 He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.

That bread is the mystery of the Gospel, revealed to the renewed mind by the 'Holy Spirit'. The Father's words of truth, which comfort all that, mourn.

Romans 7:22-25 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Mourn about their fallen state as a human, in full knowledge that they're currently servants to sin.

Matthew 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Those who give alms in public, do so to be seen of men, the virtue signalling as you see with many people, clothed in self-righteousness, the righteousness of this world, which tends to be the brother of vengeance these days. Good earthly deeds save no one. Again, the flesh profits nothing.

Romans 10:3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

Jesus warned time and time again, not to do these things publicly. The fate of his disciples, the prophets, and himself in the Earth is a good testament to that. People do not like the truth, especially if that truth makes them realise that their life in the flesh is meaningless. It is tough to come to terms with.

Luke 5:39 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.

You cannot make people believe these things, and you cannot wash the inside of another's cup, and expect them to drink the new wine that you pour into it.

Luke 5:37-38 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish. But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.

They have to get a whole new cup, and pour the new wine into that, so that it is fit and clean to drink.

Matthew 20:21-23 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.

Jesus being the cornerstone of the 'Gospel of the Kingdom', and the prophets and the apostles being the foundation, paved the way for all those to follow after them. However, make no mistake; it is the 'Father' that prepares the life of those who have come towards their own end time in the flesh, the end of their course here.

Luke 11:49-52 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

They paved the way for the Gospel of peace to be spread around the Earth, and the blood of them is required of this generation, which has lasted from Adam, until now. Now they cannot hinder those who desire to enter, since their false doctrines, spirituality, philosophies and religions, are stripped away and laid bare for all to see, and made foolish.

Hebrews 2:13-16 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

None can stop it, since his crucifixion set the course for all to receive the 'Holy Spirit' in their time of regeneration. The knowledge of which the earthly churches have tried to usurp and replace with their own doctrines and traditions, which hooks people, and retards any sort of growth in the spirit. But none can stop the word of God, and those that try, are already condemned before they even consider it.

Matthew 12:31-32 31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

Which brings me to the giving of alms again, the purpose of which is to allow the 'Holy Spirit' to flourish within men.

Matthew 6:1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

We're not in the business of fame, and making a name for ourselves, we're in the business of God, who desire all men flourish and see salvation, and with that aim in mind, we do his work and spread the Gospel, then the Father works his work in a man. No one can fully understand when told these things, and I wasn't told, nor taught them, but they were revealed. Like lightning I suddenly knew.

Habakkuk 1:5 Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in your days which ye will not believe, though it be told you.

The Father is all knowing and is the all good, and his will, will be done in the Earth as it is in Heaven. All here is predestined; the prophecies in the Old Testament should teach people that. All here will be saved; some first and some last, but all will see the salvation of God. The problem with the religious is that that they try and force things, and so they who believe they're saved are those that are condemned already, thinking that they have God's word, but are in truth they only have their own.

Isaiah 55:10-12 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Think not that Jesus came here in vain, nor that God would create millions of spirits so that they would be condemned forever. That is the human thinking that deceives all people, and it is men that kill and condemn not God.

Ephesians 1:11-14 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Though many of us will die, we are not expelled from the Father's glory forever. Though many of us will reach rock bottom in human standards, all will be raised up due time, out of this bottomless pit which we have all been banished to.

2 Samuel 14:14 For we must needs die, and are as water spilt on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again; neither doth God respect any person: yet doth he devise means, that his banished be not expelled from him.

All those, like the Israelite's held in captivity, will be freed from Egypt, and they will hear of the real land of milk and honey, and approach it in spirit. All the tribes of Jacob will once again possess the land. As the stories and histories of the Old Testament were and are a shadow of good things to come, but not the very image of, as spoken through the Law and the Prophets, so will the 'Law' bring forth the hope it spoke of in the spirit.

Matthew 7:11-14 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

So once you find that gate, point others to it, do unto others as you would them to you. The foundation of the Law in Heaven, the law of 'Do good', being fruitful and multiplying in righteousness.

Matthew 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

That is giving alms to the poor, to the poor in the knowledge of spirit, so that they and you may become rich spiritually in the righteous knowledge of God that reveals to the spirit the mystery of the Kingdom.

1 Corinthians 2:6-7 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

Those that desire to be a member of a religion or any group inspired by man will be shut out, and instead they will believe in the delusions of their religions, and they won't even know it. It is better to leave them to their debates and arguing, because people may plant the seeds, but only God brings the rain that helps the seed grow in the field.

2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

That strong delusion which believes the lie, are the plagues received for adding to the book the doctrines of the flesh and taking away from it, the knowledge of the spirit, so that they who serve their religions can receive the worship and praise of men. These are the plagues that were not written in the book of the law, because the plagues are of the spirit, which are written about in the 'Book of Revelation' the same plagues which kill the spirit, that third part of man.

Deuteronomy 28:59-61 Then the Lord will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance. Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou was afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.  Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the Lord bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

Because religion which is of the wisdom of man, destroys the truth of the 'Father', and keeps the 'Mystery of God' a mystery, since all those who believe in religions think they have the truth, and so would no longer seek out the 'Mystery of the Gospel'. Religion would be part of the pestilence that has allowed the land to be conquered, since it would war with what should rule the land, leaving a famine within it, and the spirit that lacks of knowledge of the 'Mystery of the Kingdom' would lead to its death, spiritually speaking, since it would face death in the flesh and face the second resurrection which is life back into the flesh, instead of the first resurrection, the eternal life in the spirit.

Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

And basically the plagues of the book result in the ignorance of man, causing the 'Gospel to be hid' from them. Because those who claim to know the truth and know God can't help but exalt themselves above their fellows, giving themselves fancy titles within the hierarchies of their religions. They always have to be seen of men and known to them above all else. Their pride comes from the support of persons, and if these people truly knew God they like God would have no respect of persons.

Matthew 23:11-12 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Fact is, all religion and spirituality is vain, and works in vain.

James 1:26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.

Now reading the following should clearly explain to people that they should do their alms in the spirit, meaning to say in a way that people can't see, since ultimate goal is to prepare the hearts and minds of people to receive the spirit. Not only that, but it keeps one humble. 

Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

It would defeat the whole aim of things if people raised up to Heaven bragging about their own good deeds in the flesh, specifically in this case where the knowledge given to you to spread is not your own.

Matthew 6:3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

People are not supposed to see it coming, and the knowledge of it develops within a person in their lifetime of regeneration, and to be clear, a person cannot be told these things and be converted in one lifetime.

Luke 5:39 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.

People indeed have to be born again, so that the lifetime of regeneration can quicken the spirit, and make it ready to be raised up at its time of end in the flesh. That new wine is the knowledge of the spirit, and that knowledge needs to be poured from upon high by the 'Father' into the new body.

Luke 5:38 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.

Since currently all people are born of the flesh, because they have yet to be prepared with the knowledge of the spirit. A person proclaiming ‘I am a born again ‘Christian’ completely misses the point of what being born again means. That lazy short cut is just that, lazy.

Colossians 1:5-6 For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

Somewhere down the line, people will have had to have heard the 'Gospel' before, and it needs to be familiar to the person 'Like a feeling that they have heard these things before'.

Matthew 24:13-15 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) (Meaning to say not everyone who reads that will understand)

When people recognise that 'New Wine' as the truth, then their 'Time of end' is at hand, and they will clearly understand what the 'Abomination of Desolation' truly means. After all if the 'Kingdom of Heaven' is within, then the 'Holy Place' is within, and what is taking that 'Kingdom' with violence?

Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Where has 'Satan' made his seat so that Jesus could behold him fall from 'Heaven' like lightning. He came speaking in parables remember, so very few could understand what he was on about, and the same can be said today.

John 3:6-8 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

So, all people someday will have to 'Preach the Gospel' and people do that by telling the truth, after they have discovered it and had it revealed to them via revelation. It is not the flesh that needs to be saved, but the blind spirit within us all, veiled from the word. It is that which needs to be anointed by the Father's grace, since it is that grace that reveals knowledge to the mind.

Galatians 1:10-12 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

It is not taught in the human sense, and that is something people must grasp in full. No man taught these me things, put it that way. In fact, when I did follow what man taught me, 100% of the time I ended up being wrong, and for a good percentage of the posts on this site, I've had to completely rewrite, because my understanding had been given me from man, and corrupt the core message. God reveals none else.

Matthew 6:2-4 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Jesus doesn't need anyone's praise and worship; he hated that when he was here, since they worshipped in vain. Paying lip service, and doing no works, because they had no faith in the Father, just faith in the words about their own faith, preached by men, and not given by God. You should be seeking to receive the word of God, not just hearing about it. Even reading things here and believing them isn't going to help anyone, since that would be just more self-indoctrination, and that would be the complete opposite of my intention. Again, turn within towards the 'Father' to receive his word, those revelations given to your mind, that then makes his words known to you. Keep in mind that the purpose of existence in the flesh is to be corrected in the spirit.

Proverbs 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

A prophecy about Revelation below, try and understand it, in none human terms.

Isaiah 55:8-10 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

The revelations received the 'Father' which are not of our own thoughts, nor of our ways of the flesh, but is as the bread from Heaven, that hidden manna that is of the spirit which man can't see. So, as you receive revelation, pass it on, so that you may reap the righteousness of what you sow. For as people give, so shall that they increase in wisdom, understanding and the knowledge of the 'Kingdom'. You get out what you put in, so, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and receive more in abundance.

1 John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. (The religious and spiritual) But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

This is in the spirit, not the second coming in the flesh. Jesus sends the comforter, who the world cannot receive, since it is not of this world. Incidentally, there a reason why a lot of mentally ill people claim to be Jesus reborn, a deception of the soul and the wicked one, sending the mind false revelations (Hearing voices), which only speak of the Earth.

1 John 4:1-4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

The ones from the 'Father' speak of the spirit, and are not audible for the most part, though they can be, but seldom are, and even when they are, it is just one or two words. The average mind would go astray hearing such things audibly, and so that is not how the spirit communicates.

1 John 2:29 If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

What people see as righteous earthly deeds doesn't impress God, again the flesh profits nothing. The religious, spiritual, rich and famous, etc, are all walking around all pious thinking they're better than others, all the while blissfully unaware they're being condemned by their own craft. If they knew what was to come, they'd soon change their ways.

1 Peter 4:12-13 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:  But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

This is a large furnace, with many fiery trials, but until people have paid the uttermost farthing, none shall come out.

John 14:15-17 If ye love me, keep my commandmentsAnd I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

And when that'Holy Spirit' is within teaching you, then you can bare witness also, and only then. Anything else is just belief which will deceive you.

John 15:26-27 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

And of cause it will instruct you in righteousness, renewing and correcting your errors, and unrighteousness, blotting out your sinful natures. Healing the spirit, similar to how Jesus came here in the flesh and healed the flesh. After all, he was the word made flesh, and now he is the word made spirit, the word which is the word of God, which he passes on to the spirit. That is the role of the Morning star, a role that the ‘Lord God’ abused when he became crooked, leading to all us lot ending up in the pit. He was made straight by the 'Father' and so must we be, in the example he set out for us to follow.

John 16:7-15 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. (The soul) I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

What part of let no man deceive you by and means, or you need not any man teach you, don't people quite understand? Crookedness can't cure crookedness, and all are crooked here, both good and evil.

Matthew 15:8-9 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Jesus said quite plainly, turn to the 'Father' in the spirit, in that secret place no one can see but God.

Matthew 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

The above is a parable for fasting from the world, from the lusts of the flesh and heart, shutting the door to its works, hence the parable below.

Matthew 6:18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. (To your spirit)

And with that reward, give alms, to the poor in spirit. How people do that is down to them, I suggest doing them in the same why the Father does it, in secret. Nothing worse than people who desire praise, fame and the glory of men. Again, God has no respect of persons.

Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
