Blessed Are Those Who Hunger and Thirst For Righteousness, For They Will Be Filled
Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.(Matthew 5:1-2)
Did You Know?
That the Hebrews called their coming Savior, the Messiah, Jahshuawah. The disciples of the Savior accepted Him as such, and to them. He was also known as Jahshuwah the Messiah.The Greeks, however, rejected the Hebrew name, and called Him (IESOUS-Jesus) instead.
Jesus teaches in Matthew 5:6 that, ” Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” What did he mean by this?
In a world where everyone defines for themselves what is right (righteous) and what is wrong (unrighteous), wars, crime, strife, and injustice have resulted. On one side, what is righteous (good) is viewed as unrighteous (evil) by those on the other side. What is unrighteous (evil) is viewed as righteous (good) by those on the other side.
It is very frustrating and for many a very stressful experience living in a world where unrighteousness (bad) prevails. News reporting is almost always bad news. It’s like breathing polluted air or drinking dirty water; it’s not good for you. It even wears you down.
Jesus teaches that a day will come where those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (good) will have it abundantly because God’s righteousness (rightness) will only prevail. No conflicting views as man will no longer be in a position of rulership over man. He had his chance and has failed miserably.
God is good and righteous. There is no unrighteousness in Him. Thus, when his kingdom comes down and envelopes the earth, it will be filled with only good and righteous things.
No one of importance. A disciple (student) of Christ apart from the established religious systems who reasons, thinks and concludes matters for myself. Something is not right with the state of religion in the world. The real dichotomy is that we live in a world so full of religion, yet is an evil, immoral, and dangerous place to live. A mental and spiritual separation from this world that Jesus said his kingdom is no part of is the first step to a "break-through" to freedom and entry into a much larger spiritual world where God and Christ resides and the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of God can be accessed.
