Matthew 6:1, "BEWARE of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven." Self-righteousness is a sin of not honoring GOD, but putting yourself before Him.

We who have been made righteous in GOD the Father's eyes because of what Jesus, GOD the Son did for us on the cross should give all glory to our Almighty Creator GOD. It is not us, but Him Who we allow to work through us.  GOD the Holy Spirit gives us the choice. Choose righteousness, not self-righteousness!

Making Oaths

Matthew 5:36-37, "Nor shall you take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your statement be yes or no, anything beyond these is of evil." 

Life Lessons Bible commentary, "Jesus discouraged oath-taking because this amounted to nothing more than human works. When we break an oath, it reflects badly on our godly character and on the LORD Jesus. As believers, our words should be just as trustworthy as any vow." So, be careful what you say. How many times have we seen the swearing upon the Bible in a court of law and the person be found to have committed perjury? How many times have countries made treaties (oaths) with one another and have broken it, bringing about war?

I'm so humbled that GOD's oath to us for our salvation in Jesus Christ paying the penalty for our sin, is not dependent upon our works, but His!

Jesus Explains Further Exodus' Law

Matthew 5:27-28, Jesus further taught, "You have heard it said that you shall not commit adultery, but I (Jesus) say to you that everyone who looks upon a woman in lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart." That goes for you too, ladies!

Remember, not only are the sins in your body and your words being recorded, but also your very thoughts are. This is how awesome our Almighty, Creator, Savior GOD is! The power He has to speak everything into existence, is the very same power He has to know every thought, every human being is having and all at the same time! He even knows the thoughts of those He has yet to create!!!  Isaiah 46:9-10 says, "Remember the former things long past, for I Am GOD, and there is no other; I Am GOD, and there is no one like Me, declaring the end from the beginning; My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure."

If you don't know Jesus as your Savior, or you refuse to accept Him, GOD already knows and He has an eternity for you that YOU have chosen by rejecting Christ's salvation for you! Praise You, Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD, that you knew before creation that I would belong to You and Your forever Kingdom!

Ephesians 1:4, "Before the world was (created) I (Almighty GOD) knew you!"

Those Who Are Angry At You.

Christians overcome the anger of others by the above means. In doing so, it has an adverse effect on those who are angered at them for their profession of faith in Christ.

Proverbs 25:22, (Doing good to those who hate you will...) "For you will heaps coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD will reward you." Doing good to those who hate you literally 'eats them up inside' because they can't or won't understand the power of Christ in you which gives you the strength to do so!

Romans 12:20, "If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For by doing so you will heap burning coals on his head." 

Burning coals has 2 diverse effects. One is for punishing, the other for cleansing! 1. Punishing Revelation 19:20, "...these two were thrown into the Lake of Fire which burns with brimstone (burning coals!) As will with all of men whose names are not found in the Lamb's Book of Life (Revelation 20:15) 2. Cleansing - Isaiah 6:5-7 speaks of Isaiah being a man of unclean lips. A seraphim (holy angel) takes tongs with a burning coal touching it to Isaiah's lips which removes his iniquity and sin.

Do you have the cleansing of Jesus' blood upon you so that you do not have to forever be in the Lake of Fire that burns with brimstone? Jesus is GOD in the flesh and He has made a provision for your sins to be forgiven just for your asking Him to do so! Ask Him, truly ask Him from your heart today, not just a mindset, and you will receive His Holy Spirit in you to guide and direct your life. Read His WORD, the Bible, and His Spirit will open up to you the things of eternal life in Him that you never realized!

Anger Is More Than Just Anger

Matthew 5:21-23, Jesus continues to share by saying, "You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, 'Do not murder and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.' But I (Jesus) tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell. Reconcile yourself to your brother, then come and offer your gift."

Reconciliation Before Offering

We make peace with GOD by accepting His Son Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross for our sins. We are then reconciled to Almighty GOD.

Matthew 5:24 speaks of man's reconciliation to man, "first be reconciled to your brother and then come present your offering (to GOD)."

Romans 3:23, "All have fallen short of the glory of GOD." 

Have you the peace of GOD and your fellow man? Seek out GOD and you will.
