Bible Texts:

Beatitudes: (Blessings-Happy.)

Matthew 5:1-12 KJV
1 And seeing the multitudes, He went up into a mountain: and when He was set, His disciples came unto Him:
2 And He opened His mouth, and taught them, saying,
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Luke 6:20-23 KJV
20 And He lifted up His eyes on His disciples, and said,
Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled.
Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for The Son Of Man's sake.
23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

In Matthew 5: Christ spoke on a mountain, near Capernaum, on a ridge of rolling hills, north west of the city, the Sea of Galilee before it. Our Lord addressed the religious leaders and the crowds.

In Luke 6: Christ spoke while on the plains. Our Lord addressed “His disciples, vs 20.

Two different occasions, two different messages.

Pastor's often use a message more than once, using the whole and or only parts of the message (Luke: Beatitudes, one, four, two, and ninth of Matthew 5), as the situation deemed it necessary, this is nothing new, nor wrong. The Lord, is our Shepherd (Pastor).

Psalm 23:1 KJV
The Lord is my Shepherd*..."

*Shepherd-Hebrew: Rachmaniy (Rakh-maw-nee): Compassionate, pitiful.

John 10:11 KJV
I am The Good Shepherd*: The Good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep.

*Shepherd-Greek: Poimen (Poy-mane): A Shepherd: Pastor.

Keeping the Beatitudes, do not bring salvation, but in the life of a Christian, they do bring blessedness, and happiness.

The Beatitudes, remind us of the Apostle Paul's words concerning spiritual fruits.

Galatians 5:22,23 KJV
22 But the fruit of The Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Ephesians 5:9 KJV
(For the fruit of The Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and Truth;)

What was it Solomon said....

Proverbs 3:13 KJV
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
