New Testament

Luke 18:9-14 – Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector

Luke 18:9-14

9 And he spoke this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:

10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

There are quite a few passages with a similar message of this one. Such as Matthew 7:5, “first take out the plank in your eye.” All telling us to not compare ourselves to others.

I particularly enjoy this because of the juxtaposition of a self-declared holy man and a generally disliked tax collector. Two more opposites would be difficult to find in the time of Christ.

What would be the equivalent today? I would say a socially woke person who has identified their entire victimhood and the horrible historical injustices of their favorite downtrodden groups. They feel morally superior since they realize the absolute evil of so many people around them. They do not feel compassion for others who don’t think and act like them – only contempt.

Luke 17:22-35 – The Coming of the Kingdom

22 And he said to the disciples, “The days are coming when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and you will not see it. 23 And they will say to you, ‘Lo, there!’ or ‘Lo, here!’ Do not go, do not follow them. 24 For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of man be in his day. 25 But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 26 As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of man. 27 They ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was in the days of Lot—they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built, 29 but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all— 30 so will it be on the day when the Son of man is revealed. 31 On that day, let him who is on the housetop, with his goods in the house, not come down to take them away; and likewise let him who is in the field not turn back. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whoever seeks to gain his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. 35 There will be two women grinding together; one will be taken and the other left.”

I was always curious about the sentence, “let him who is on the housetop, with his goods in the house, not come down to take them away; and likewise let him who is in the field not turn back.” In my younger days I imagined the people running away from a mushroom cloud explosion, trying to outrun the blast zone. I grew up in the generation where once a month we had to hide under our desks in preparation for a nuclear attack. The advice was to flee immediately, take nothing to slow you down.

Luke 17:11-19 – Christ Cures ten Lepers – But Only One Came back to Thank Him

Luke 17:11-19

Ten Lepers Cleansed

11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.

12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off.

13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”

14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God,

16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.

17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine?

18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?”

19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”

In the analysis of this set of verses, I will not comment on the cleansing of the lepers, but on the sad fact that only one person, who was healed of a terrible disease, of which there was no cure at the  time of Christ, returned to thank He who healed him.

Luke 17:7-10 – Unworthy Servants – What did Jesus Mean?

Luke 17:7-10

7 “Suppose one of you has a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Will he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, ‘Come along now and sit down to eat’?

8 Won’t he rather say, ‘Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink’?

9 Will he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do?

10 So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.’”

But the servants did their what they were commanded to do – What is the problem? The problem is the foundational weakness of most people on earth. We do just enough to get by. It’s not enough.

Increase Your Faith – What did Jesus Mean? – Faith is Measurable in the Spirit Realm

Luke 17:5-6

5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”

6 He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.

Could you command a mulberry to be transported to the sea? Yes, in the spirit world you could. But you need faith.

Salt Without Taste is Useless – What did Jesus Mean?

Luke 14:34-35

34 “Salt is good, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored?

35 It is of no use either for the soil or for the manure pile. It is thrown away. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

Salt: a preservative, which enhances the taste of food. If salt loses it effect, then why use it? After all, salt is meant to improve flavor.

Spirituality is the same. It is an added ingredient in one’s life. Meant to enhance the perspective of life, to give life meaning and hope. Spirituality should be a welcomed part of the daily routine.

Settle with Your Accuser – Luke 12:57-59

Luke 12:57-59

57 “Why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right?

58 As you are going with your adversary to the magistrate, try hard to be reconciled on the way, or your adversary may drag you off to the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison.

59 I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.”

Verse 59 is the foreshadowing of your future lives and an explanation for trials in past lives. True words spoken by Christ.

John 9:35-41 For Judgement I Have Come in Thus World – The Arrogance of the Ruling Class Persists to this Day

Christ gave sight to a blind man. The Pharisees sought him out and interrogated him, then they spoke to his parents. They could not forgive Christ for being superior to them, so they called Him a sinner for curing a person on the Sabbath. They also threw the former blind man our of the temple. The verse starts:

35 Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?”

36 “Who is he, sir?” the man asked. “Tell me so that I may believe in him.”

37 Jesus said, “You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.”

38 Then the man said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him.

39 Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”

40 Some Pharisees who were with him heard him say this and asked, “What? Are we blind too?”

41 Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.

This verse is still pertinent today!

Luke 13:22-30 The Narrow Door

What does this mean as interpreted by Spiritism? One may read this verse with clarity given the information about the spirit universe and the hierarchy of spirits which have been revealed to us by Spiritism.

The Truth Will Set You Free – John 8:31-38

In John 8:31-38, there is the famous quote, “The truth will set you free”. It is timeless. It was true two thousand years ago and still true today.

Christ also talked about some who wanted to kill him. Again, there are many who wish to destroy anyone who does not conform to the beliefs and rule of the global elite.
