The Day that Christians all over the world know as “Easter”, the day to which Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshua, Yeshu Christu) rose from the Dead, after being put to death on the Cross, at Calvary, is the cornerstone of the faith. On the Cross, he demonstrated what made Him, Man; and on the day we know as Easter, He demonstrated what made Him the Son of God, and that is resurrecting from the dead. It is important to reflect and study the path to which Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu, Yeshua) took while He roamed this earth, and the path He took after His Death.
He provided us with the life example that we, as His Followers were meant to take, in order to enter the Eternal Kingdom of God (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh), through the Divine Laws of Love. The world, which conforms to its ruler’s ways, satan and his demons, want to mislead God’s most beloved creations away from His Eternal Kingdom, for the reason that they themselves will not ever be able to have, what Humanity has the chance of having….being in the very Throne Room of God, and attaining the Eternal Peace that nothing in the Universe can provide. Through pride, self love, self gratification, instant happiness that last for seconds at a time, satan and his demons have mislead humanity into a state of falsehood of prosperity on this earth, the realm to which he controls and manipulates for his purposes, leading his demons into the submission of humanity under his rebellion against God, the Father of Creation, as an act of revenge for kicking him and his demons out of the Eternal Paradise.
What Jesus Christ demonstrated through His Life Example, Death on the Cross, and His Resurrection, was a plan that God, the Father of Creation had set into motion, since the time Satan tempted and brought humanity unto his rebellion against Him. Jesus Christ’s Life showed us that no earthly parameter considered as symbols of proserity, riches, or wealth hold any value in the Eyes of God, the Father of Creation. He showed Humanity, that the world’s ways are not inline with those of the Eternal Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation. This is what satan and his demons want Humanity to understand as “blessings” from a Divine Source, because they know the weaknesses and strengths of Man, just as God, the Father does. Afterall, satan was once Lucifer, one of the highest ranking angels. Instead of following God, the Father of Creation’s Divine Laws of Love, he took it upon himself, to lead a rebellion against his creator. Jesus Christ came back to reestablish this order. Humanity needed to see what example they needed to follow, and this is what Jesus Christ demonstrated. It was a life full of suffering (in the earthly sense); a life full of trials; a life devoid of earthly wealth and riches though being a member of the Most High Court; and a life that demonstrates a repentant, humble heart and soul that can not be refuted even by the most wicked and coldest of hearts.
In fact evil will portray this meekness in front of God, the Father of Creation, as a weakness and evil in itself because satan and his demons knows the power of such a human nature can do. Just look at how Jesus Christ’s disciples were able to spread His Teachings, and convert so many hearts for the sake of returning Humanity back to God, the Father of Creation. This is why satan and his demons use distraction, illnesses, war, death, revenge, pride to steer humanity off of the path to the Eternal Kingdom. They do not want Humanity to ever know the power that Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross holds. He was more than a Man that just roamed this earth; He was the Son of God, who came to become the Salvation for Humanity; in order to reestablish the connection between Humanity and God, the Father of Creation.
There is one difference between Divinity and Evil, which is what Jesus Christ showed us. Divinity gives you the chose to choose to follow the Divine Laws of Love, even after once dedicating and accepting to follow the path towards the Eternal Kingdom; Evil will force you to follow its ways, to the point of death. However, what we must remember is that through Jesus Christ all of humanity has the chance to come to God, the Father. He said that all will be called, but because of how “difficult in the earthly sense it is, few will be willing to follow, and therefore few will enter”. The sinner, the faithful, the disloyal, and the loyal will have the chance. The most important thing is to put God, and the Divine Laws of Love, first and foremost in your mind, body, and soul so that they will be the driving force. One must understand that the reason for the trials in a soul bound for the Eternal Kingdom of God, is due to becoming a target for satan and his demons. It gets them so angry…vengeful…and even filled with hatred to see a soul that resists them, and denies them. So they will try anything to jade them, and throw them off of the path towards the Eternal Kingdom. Jesus Christ, showed us that we are to follow the ways of the Eternal Kingdom, even to the point of earthly death to the Human Body, because that is the extent to which evil will go to take you off the path, which is what satan tried to do to Jesus Christ while He roamed the Earth.
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua)showed us, and even satan and his demons that death to the earthly body does not hold back the souls that are bound to the Path to the Eternal Kingdom, hold back those who are God’s Children, and that His Divine Laws of Love will prevail. That satan’s shackles were taken off of those of Humanity that denied his deception. Jesus Christ, through His Resurrection, showed Humanity that they will not die if they follow His Ways that conform to the Divine Laws of Love, ways of Selfless Unconditional Love, Mercy, and Forgiveness. When Jesus Christ said that His is the Way, and only through Him, can we enter the Eternal Kingdom of God, this is what I have understood. If we truly understood what His Life represented, then we will understand what greatness God, the Father of Creation created for Humanity to to be; and conform to the Divine Laws of Love. This is what His Disciples demonstrated through their own lives. They believed in the Divine Laws of Love so much, that they were killed while spreading and defending them. This is what is expected of all those bound to the Eternal Kingdom of God, to endure to the point of death. Repent from the sinful human nature, because God’s Divine Laws of Love require this. God, the Father of Creation expects us to fall, but with His Strength, He expects us to come back to Him. Jesus Christ showed us as the Son of God, that He roamed on this earth, and knows the trials that we undergo as Humanity, because He, Himself went through them. He showed us how we can overcome them, and still be return back to the Eternal Throne Room promised to Humanity.
SO ENDURE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN JESUS CHRIST. DO NOT LET EVIL DISTRACT YOU WITH THE EARTHLY RICHES AND PROSPERITY, BECAUSE THAT IS NOT IN ACCORDANCE TO GOD’S ETERNAL KINGDOM. FOR THOSE “CONSIDERED FIRST ON THIS EARTH WILL BE CONSIDERED LAST IN GOD’S ETERNAL KINGDOM”.
I had recently encountered someone who believed in “Survival of the Fittest” as their personal philosophy, which is something that I personally have observed as becoming a more widely accepted philosophy for the human race, as the years go by. They actually said, that humans had it all wrong, and animals had it right. Of course, for me I could not exactly see this point of view, because of what God, the Father of all Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) has guided through the examples of His Chosen People. The carnality of humanity is what brought the human race to its fall from Grace, in the Garden of Eden, when Satan as the Serpant tempted Eve to eat from the Tree of Knowledge. Otherwise before that fall to the temptation, Humanity had a direct link to God, the Father of Creation. The carnality of animals or nature, is what God, The Father, created for them to be; He did not create Humanity to take on that same mentality, in fact with the human heart, mind, and soul, He had called Humanity to live lives of a higher call, and philosophy; not survival of the fittest.
Survival of the Fittest was meant for the animals in the wild, for the sake of survival. This is what they were created to do. Human Beings were not created to be this way; they became this way, upon falling to the sin of evil, upon falling to Satan’s temptation in the Garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge. Mankind was not created to follow the philosophy of “Survival of the Fittest”, and this is what will lead to the decline of human nature. Instead of E-VOLVING, humanity will DE-EVOLVE. Part of Satan and his demons’ distraction from rediscovering the original greatness that God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) created for humanity to be, is to make humanity value, and focus on the things of this world; things that can be manipulated by evil through the earthly human 5 senses (seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching) through the manipulation of earthly things. This is why Christians say, “We are born as sinners”. It is this generational sin, that was implanted by Adam and Eve, and demonstrated through Cain and Abel; where Cain showed his belief in “survival of the fittest”, by killing his brother Abel. Do you see things where there is a degeneration of human nature, due to the mentality of “survival of the fittest”? Where looking out for the self at all costs, despite the action negatively affecting another?
SELF LOVE is what evil professes; Divinity professes SELFLESS LOVE.
God, the Father of Creation, (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) grants the power for people to turn from their sinful human nature. He does this through the example that He provided through Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay), with His Life, Death and Resurrection on the Cross, at Calvary. It is this Example of SELFLESS, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE that God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) showed this Ultimate Symbol of Unconditional Love for Humanity. People who follow the philosophy of “Survival of the Fittest” will not understand what Divinity professes as seen in Selfless Love, or Unconditional Love due to their philosophy focusing on the things of this world, to which Evil is ruler over. It is easier to see what evil wants humanity to see, in order to distract humanity from the original greatness that God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Yahweh, Devum) created for Humanity to be, which is a life that mimicks that which was shown to Humanity through Jesus Christ Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu) the Son of God, the Father of Creation. Those that are not following Divinity’s Path, will see the Divine Laws of Love of the Eternal Kingdom, as foolish and an unnecessary way of life that is full of sacrifices and suffering. But according to the Holy Scriptures in the Holy Bible, in order to break away from our sinful human nature, which follow this philosophy of “Survival of the Fittest” naturally, we must undergo great hardships and trials, so that we can see the Greatness of God, and with His Help, we can overcome the ways of this world, which is centered around the philosophy of SELF CONDIITONAL LOVE.
The degeneration of human nature can be seen in our everyday lives.I think I hear it best said, that Satan will not feel threatened by those who are going the track he wants them on, which is steering them away form the Eternal Kingdom. In fact, since he is currently being given the reigns of the world (which the Holy Spirit gurarding it right now) to have a life free from trials and tribulations, consisting of earthly riches, and a temporary peace of mind that is provided by earthly things. Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, was born as a poor man, though being a Member of the Most High Courts of the Eternal Kingdom; He was given the Death Sentence of a Criminal; Jesus was persecuted while He was in Mary’s Womb, based on the decree of the King. While He was doing His Ministry, as He roamed the earth, He was being persecuted by religious leaders, and the people of the towns that he visited. As the Son of God, He had so many earthly trials, so who are we to think that we would be exempt of them, or to lead lives differently from the example that He gave us? Satan feels threatened by those who have found the path to the Eternal Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation; and found the no value of the earthly things, that he can manipulate or control. So He would obviously be upset with this, because they have found what God’s True Calling is for Humanity.
When we value the things of this world, we will lose sight on the original greatness that God, the Father of Creation created for humanity to be. We will lose consciousness of this greatness, and the Infinite Wisdom of God. Satan wants humanity to forget about this greatness. He wants human nature to degenerate by focusing on the things of his world. He wants human nature to degenerate, so that just like him, humanity will never experience the infinite peace of mind, body, and soul; as well as infinite unconditional love. God the Father of Creation gives us infinite chances to realize the difference between what is good and evil; and what is right and wrong in His Eyes, until the last earthly breaths we take on this earth. We must not focus in molding our human nature to the ways of this world, but be guided by the Divine Laws of Love, which are dictated by God, the Father of Creation, through which He showed us through the example of Jesus Christ. Does He expect us to fall? YES. What is the difference between someone bound on the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, and someone who is not? Coming to God, the Father, with a humble, repentant heart to Him, and confessing it to Him; and to change from those ways. Being selfless, is to be devoid of pride. And this is what God, the Father of Creation expects of us. Those that are not bound onto the path towards the Eternal Kingdom will say that they do not need to change, and will continue to act in their prideful, selfish ways.
Keep guard over your human nature. Ask God and the Holy Spirit to continuously guide your human nature, and look to the Example to which Jesus Christ has provided, and prevent the degeneration of YOUR HUMAN NATURE.
Selfless love is professed by Divinity; self love is professed by Evil. Unconditional Love is professed by Divinity; conditional love is professed by evil. Therefore SELFLESS, UNCONDITONAL LOVE is professed by Divinity; SELF, CONDITIONAL LOVE is professed by evil.” –foodforthespiritualsoul
When it comes to love, it is a language that is understood by all creations living, both great and small. Animals in the wild understand this; nature from the trees to plants that grow in the forests, grasslands, and even the swamplands; as well as human beings understand this. Divinity’s ways are universal. Whether the creature or creation is good or evil; parasitic or symbiotic; or predator or prey, love of an unconditional kind, that is selfless is nature is understood by all. Love of a sacrificial kind is understood by all, it is a universal act, that invokes an universal feeling of healing, happiness, and even love itself, that draws away hate and darkness, and brings in light to a soul.
Divinity has a reason or purpose as to why it expresses Itself and Its ways in a universal manner, so that ALL have the opportunity to experience love, in its purest form, and to have a chance to find their way to Divinity’s Eternal Paradise, in the very Throne Room of God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah), an Eternal Paradise that is filled with Eternal Peace, Unconditional Love, Nonviolence, and Mercy. It is this selfless, unconditional love, that Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) showed humanity on the Cross, at Calvary. It was sacrificial in nature, that even the animals in the wild, demonstrate and understand themselves. The Son of God, walked this earth, in order to show humanity, one final time, what God expects of us, as we roam this earth, in order to become one in the Body of Christ, and enter into the Eternal Throne Room of God, the Father of all Creation. While Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu) roamed this earth, as the Son of God, he showed us ways that conformed to the Divine Laws of Love: ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy.
So coming to the title of this entry. Love is very much “expressed” in this day and age; but many no longer know what it truly means. Many feel that love can be expressed in many ways. This is probably why Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) expressed that we should be in equally yoked relationships. What does it mean to be equally yoked? Well, does anyone remember the story of Samson and Delilah?
Samson was a godly man, that was given immense strength, through the length of his hair, to which the God’s Angel had instructed to his mother, upon the time of his conception, in her womb. This immense strength was seen to be a gift from God, the Father of Creation; and Samson was to obey God in not cutting his hair. Samson loved God, with all of his being. But then he fell in love with Delilah, and she had other plans for him….plans to break his devotion and love for God, the Father of Creation. She was a distraction to his service to God, the Father, and in his path towards His Eternal Kingdom. She wanted to bring Samson away from God, and to serve her purpose. Samson loved Delilah, with a pure love, that was dictated by the Divine Laws of Love, and God, the Father of Creation’s (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) guidance as to what He dictates Unconditional, Selfless love should be. Delilah loved Samson, in the conditional way, to serve her purpose. So what happened to Samson, out of his love for Delilah, which was pure in nature? Delilah’s purpose was to find out the source of his strength; after being asked by the Phillistines and being given some silver for her efforts in doing so; with several times of insisting of revealing it to her, he gave in out of his love and trust for Delilah, and in his sleep has a servant cut his hair off that very same night. Samson does break his promise to God, and loses his God given strength. Samson immediately realizes his fault in front of God, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and pleads with God one final time to forgive him, and to return his strength to him. In his final moments on this earth, he dies while destroying the Temple in Dagon and the people within it. Being unequally yoked will eventually cause the Child of God to be compromised, by being roped into the ways of this world, to which God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) has said, that His Ways of the Eternal Paradise, Divine Laws of Love, are not a part of. When God has revealed a window to His Infinite Wisdom to His Eternal Kingdom to someone, that individual to be granted to sight through that window has already been held to a different standard to those that have not. They view the world the way God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) views the world. They are given responsibility to uphold His Ways of the Divine Laws of Love, while roaming this earth. He handpicks people, to reveal his knowledge to, those of whom He sees in the inner depths of their hearts and souls, have their eyes towards His Eternal Kingdom, in the privacy of their lives, and how much they yearn for Him. They are not perfect people in His Divine Laws of Love, however, they answer to the urgings and guidance of the Holy Spirit, to cut the ties to the ways of this world, to which they fell prey to, to which they know from the knowledge revealed to them through their testimonies, where He (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) says His Ways do not conform to the ways of this world. This is why Christ states that we should not be in unequally yoked relationships, through the example of Samson, and many others.
People take this lightly because they allow the human heart to dictate their thoughts, actions, and words. God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) knows this….however, He warns us:
The human heart is easily influenced with the human senses, which can be easily manipulated by evil. Evil wants you to immediately act on what the human senses tell you: while God’s Infinite Wisdom is provided to those who patiently wait for Him to reveal it to them, and ask for His Guidance in their daily lives.
There is no “I” in Love. As the title states. We should love ourselves enough to understand that God loves us unconditionally to the point of giving us the chance in our daily lives to just come to Him, to see it for ourselves. God’s ways are universal to the point that it is demonstrated and universally felt. Love is not expressed in multiple ways. Evil would like for humanity to believe this, in order to creep in to cause chaos and confusion into God’s purity, in His Love for humanity. God’s Love is selfless and sacrificial in nature; to give to others, and to put others before themselves. This is what Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay, Yeshua) showed us through His Life, and Death on the Cross, at Calvary.
Through the example of His Son, Jesus Christ, God has given to us the spiritual tools that are needed to resist Satan and his demons, and to discern the deception of evil. What are these?
Take a look:
The Armor of God
A true understanding of these spiritual tools comes from a life full of earthly anguish and battles of the human heart and mind, and a soul that has had the Holy Spirit planted within it. This is so important to understand because God says His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but are beyond them. Jesus Christ showed us this through His Earthly Life and Death on the Cross, as the the Son of God. As a result, the Holy Bible has told us through many Scriptures, that God’s Faithful will suffer in the earthly sense, so that we die of the ways of this world, and detach ourselves from valuing them, and finding God’s Divine Laws of Love (ways of Unconditional Love, Mercy and Nonviolence) in the process of this earthly suffering, where such ways are unknown to the world. These tools are what Jesus Christ showed us, personally, while He roamed this earth, in how they can combat evil and its ways of deception from God’s Divine Love, a love that we were meant and created to inherit.
We are to become broken vessels, in order to refine the souls within, to detach ourselves from the world and its ways. Can a soul take within it a home, care, money, clothes, toys, technology, accomplishments, reputations? NO. It is the flesh that made mankind to sin, on that day in the Garden of Eden, when the Satan as the serpant tempted Adam and Eve. God, the Father of Creation, gave us a soul and a mind to overthink and overfeel the demands of the human body. Satan and his demons can only control what it can manipulate with the human body, in order to mislead the soul that God, the Father of Creation, gave us to guard, that is within. It is these spiritual tools that Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, that keep us in tune with what God, the Father dictates through His Divine Laws of Love, which are the ways to His Eternal Kingdom. It is what keeps such a soul that is bound towards His Eternal Kingdom, inline with God and His Ways. Satan and his demons will try to make you feel like an outcast you, and make you feel all alone for not following the world and its way, because you are leaving their jurisdiction in being able to control you off of the path towards the Eternal Kingdom.
Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, suffered in His Earthly Life and Death on the Cross, for the sake of God’s Love for Humanity. He did it to show us that He understands what we go through, while we roam this earth. He did it so that He can show us how to deal with the arrows of the evil one and his helpers, and to reconnect humanity to their direct link to God, the Father of Creation, which was once there, in the initial days of Adam and Eve. God never leaves His People clueless, or in the dark of His Ways. It is through the use of these spiritual tools that Jesus Christ, His Son, left humanity, that we are able to see them. It is through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, that they will know of them, and will have a window to God’s Eternal Wisdom. It is not a physical war that we, as humanity are in, it is a spiritual one. That is what controls the physical. If humanity values and is bound to the ways of this world, a world that God, the Father of Creation says His Ways are not a part of….a world to which His Son, Jesus Christ has shown a way of life that He, Himself did not conform to….this is what results in crimes against humanity that we see today…..world hunger, war, genocide, racial bias, etc. It is only through spiritual strength…not human strength, that we can achieve this….and we need to tap into the spiritual tools that Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu, Devum) left us, in His Life Example, and Death on the Cross, at Calvary.
Those of us who have decided to walk the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, will know what I mean by the title of this entry. When God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Devum, Yahweh) has stated that His Ways are not of the world’s way but are beyond them, He truly meant that. This is what He showed us through the Life Example and Death of His Son, Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu, Yeshua). God, the Father of Creation, has called all of His Chosen Children, that are bound toward the path toward the Eternal Kingdom, to follow His Divine Laws of Love, ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy, at all costs, even to the point of an earthly death. Those that are bound to this path, know that our time on this earth is limited, in comparison to the eternity given to the souls that are deep within us, as humanity.That is what sets us apart from any of God, the Father’s creations….it is the soul that He has given us, to keep guard over. We know that there is more to life, than what we can see with our human eyes, hear with our human ears, smelling, tasting, and touching with our human nose, tongue, and our skin.
A heart that has been given the spark by God, and have truly seen and understood what Jesus Christ did on the Cross, on that day on Calvary, that spark will never die. That spark was put within such a heart because God, the Father, has seen fertile ground and a pure heart that He found worthy for the Holy Spirit to dwell within its soul. No matter how far Satan and his demons will try to throw such a heart and soul off the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, that spark will never die. Satan and his demons hate a heart and soul that hungers for God and His Divine Laws of Love. If you look at any saint, they all have had a life that was in the earthly sense considered that full of trial, devoid of earthly riches, and a soul that sticks out in the crowd. Such souls that are seek the Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation, will see that the ways of Jesus Christ, His Son, are ways that are not of this world, but are in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love, ways of the Eternal Kingdom. A Kingdom to which God has banned Satan and his demons, which is what makes such souls a target of his envy, for what he can never have again…..God’s Unconditional Love, Peace, and Joy, and to sit in the very throne room of the Most High. So if he can never have it again, none of humanity (God’s most prized creations) will ever see it or know of it.
However, that is the difference between those that are given the testimony within their hearts and souls. This testimony is what gives the human side of the heart and soul, the conviction to continue on with the supernatural path of the Eternal Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation. Despite the earthly circumstances that may surround such souls, God, continues to lead such souls that He set on Fire with the testimony that He had custom made for them, towards the Eternal Kingdom. However, just as He did for Job, and all of His Previous Saints that walked before us, God, never allows for evil to give us more than what we can handle. God, knows and trusts His Children such trials in order to refine their souls in the fires of the furnace, to the perfect diamonds that He created for them to be; to cut them off from the ways of this world, a world to which He states that His Ways are not a part of.
So through the trials, keep up the good fight. God sees it all, and will count every tear that is shed. He will count every drop of blood of His Innocent. He will count every sorrow, and see who caused them to you, on behalf of Satan and his demons, and will account for them on your behalf one day. Have faith that God, the Father loves you, just as Jesus Christ, His Son, showed us on that day on Calvary, on the Cross.
The eternal search by all of humanity;
Is the peace of the soul…which gives one sanity.
People seek it through earthly things and ways;
However, “eternal peace is never achieved..” is what many say.
For eternal things can only be obtained;
Through the God’s Divine Laws of Love, and not of evil and the earth’s ways, stained.
Eternal things can not be attained through the ways of this world;
But only through the ways that Divinity has revealed and it is wisdom, unfurled.
This is why those that are bound to the world and its ways can not see;
What Divinity reveals in the prayer closets of those that seek, and become free.
For Divinity is not bound by the world’s ways and sayings;
Such a soul is freed of its shackles and not killed by earthly slayings.
Eternal Peace of the Soul is by the eternal communion established by it and its Maker;
A bond once established will be set aside for the Eternal Kingdom, by Jesus Christ, the Taker.
For only the Creator knows of the innermost intentions and thoughts of a soul;
And establishes His Peace, in those whose intentions are most pure and His Kingdom as its final destination are its goal.
Peace of the Soul is only attained by fellowship with the Creator;
Not earned, achieved, or bought….but a gift for a soul’s loyalty to its Maker.
For it is not always a happy and pleasant path;
However, such souls have meditated and done the math.
“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.“
