What does Jesus say about prayer? Jesus says in Matthew 15:7-9, You people talk about my teachings with your mouth, you do honor me with your lips, but you don't do the things I say to do: you hypocrites. In vain you worship me, teaching the commandments of men as my doctrine.
Why do we reject the teachings of Jesus for the superstitions, traditions and teachings of men? Are those old
superstitious traditions bringing us happiness and peace of mind? Why do we continue to pay lip service to things we do not do ourselves? Is it we cannot understand because our souls have hardened our minds with these traditions of men?
As Jesus says in Matthew 7:24-26, Who knows my teachings and Does Them, is a wise man. Who knows my teachings and
does them not is a foolish man. If you hear these words and do them, the Father will come unto you and dwell
in you and teach you all things; bringing all things to your REMEMBERANCE.
Reading Matthew 6:5-8, When you pray, show no one. Prayer is between you and your Father. DO NOT use vain repetition. DO NOT ask for earthly things; your Father knows what things you need to carry out the things he wants you to do.
Read Matthew 6:9-13. THIS IS A GUIDELINE; an example of prayer. Who turned this example into a vain repetition to be
recited in public with bowed heads? Jesus always raised his head, and taught everyone likewise. Like a little child
standing before his tall Father, looking upwards.
Our body should be used as a house of prayer to the Father, but we have allowed
it to become a den of thieves (Mark 11:17). And reading Matthew 21:31, The body is made available to us as a house of
prayer, a vehicle for communication with the Father who can help us to reach the proper understanding, making us
fit to be taken to Other Earth. DO NOT continue to waste this opportunity in riotess living; conversion can only happen in an earth body, that is the purpose for its design and the reason we are here.
Reading Mark 11:22 and 24, Have faith in your Father. When you pray KNOW that the things you need to do the will
of your Father, have already been given to you. Reading Matthew 21:22, That all things whatsoever you ask for in prayer,
believing, having faith in receiving, you shall receive if you 'doubt not'. However doubt a little, even as
much as a tiny little mustered seed, and it will not happen. Remember: Jesus said to HAVE FAITH that the Father hears
and will help - as written in John 11:41-42, "And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, Father, I thank thee that
thou hast heard me. And I know that thou hearest me always." You see, Jesus did not always hear the Father;
the Father did not always audibly respond; but Jesus KNEW the Father hears EVERY PRAYER and answers accordingly. Did you ever
stop to think that your Father has heard everyone of your 'earthly' prayers - but that the answer was "no". However, in John 12:28 there is a record of an auditable reply from Jesus' Father, reading, "There came a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, AND WILL GLORIFY IT AGAIN."
Get your prayers in-line with the work that needs to be done!
Jesus tells us which prayers are answered, reading Luke 11:8, Prayers of importunity: those things which you cannot
handle or bare; those things which are unendurable or unreasonable for you to bare.
Remember Luke 18:13, "Father be merciful to me, a sinner." Reading Luke 15 versus 21,24 and 32: Father I have sinned against you
for I was lost but now I have been found again: I was dead in this world but now you have made me alive again and so
help me to make my mind straight for the Other World.
Time to get to work!
Mark 11:25, And when you pray, stand like a little child
looking upwards towards the Father, forgive others of their trespasses against you. Forgive those who hate you.
Forgive those who use you. Forgive those who steal from you. Forgive those who hurt you. DO NOT return evil for evil,
for if you do - what better are you than they?
Whatsoever another does against you, remember Jesus words in
Luke 23:34, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."
Be about your Father's business. Blessed are they who understand these teachings AND DO THEM.
Reading Luke 17:21 and 18:17, The kingdom of God the Father is within you. But whosoever does not become as a little
child, shall not enter into that place of the Father - the holy of holies.
This is your Father. If you do not
approach him as a humble little child would approach his father for help, then do you really want his help?
It is your child-like faith in your Father's ability to make you whole once again that opens your understanding to these
teachings of Jesus. No, not you or me, nor any other man or woman can do this, only the Father.
As Jesus says in John 4:34-35, I do the will of my Father who sent me, and to finish his work. Behold, the
fields are always ready to be harvested.
Jesus says, I have come into this world to bear witness to the truth of this world.
Everyone who is ready, hears my voice. To those who can hear I have come to baptize you with the truth;
the truth which can set you free from this world. And you will come to understand my statement, "It is more
blessed to give than to receive."
Jesus says, I have come to turn you from the power of Satan below, unto God the Father above, that ye may stop sinning
and receive your inheritance on Other Earth. I come unto you, and fight against your soul with
the sword of my mouth.
Reading Matthew 4 versus 4,7 and 10: We should live by the words given to us by the Father. We should not tempt the Father.
We should pray only to our Father, to do the things he gives us to do.
God the Father is a Spirit (Mind): and they that worship him must worship him in spirit (mind), and in truth (John 4:24).
When you have lifted up your mind from the soul, and connected with the Father above, then you shall begin to
experience the truth, the truth that shall eventually set you free from that devil, that soul, Satan.
We commit sin because we are the servant of our souls and these words have no place in soul's world. We think,
do, and say those things our soul shows us. We are of that devil, the soul, and the lusts of Satan
we will do. We cannot understand these words of God the Father because he is above and we dwell below with that devil, the soul.
If you want God to be your Father you must rise up and dwell with him, resisting the temptations of the devil below.
Reading John 16:33, In this world you shall always have tribulations (temptations): but be of good cheer;
for as I have overcome this world, so can you. You now know where Satan's seat is, where Satan dwelleth, below.
Now you must come to learn of and understand the depths of Satan if you are to overcome that great deceiver - the soul.
With all thy praying, pray for understanding. Reading Matthew 26:41, Pray that ye not enter into the temptations
of the soul. Mark 14:38, Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The mind may be ready, but it is weak in
experience when it comes to the deceptive techniques of the soul. While we can justify our thoughts, words and deeds
through rationalizations from the soul, we cannot deceive our Father who knows the contents of our soul (Luke 16:15).
Reading Luke 22:28, Jesus says to his disciples, "Ye are they which have continued with me in MY TEMPTATIONS." Thus
the statement of Jesus in Matthew 19:17, "Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God."
In John 17:9, Jesus says, I pray for those who can hear and see: I pray not for this world and the people herein, but for
them which thou hast given me; for they are thine, O Father. For they are in this world of soul and need our help.
Reading John 17:8,14,15, I have given them the teachings which the Father gave me and they have understood them;
and now, not being of this world, even as I am not of this world, this world hates them. I pray not that you Father
should take them out of this world, for there is much work to be done, but that you Father should strengthen them
against the temptations, against the evil in their souls. Strengthen them through your truth O Father. I
pray not for those who have believed in me, but also for those who believe in my teachings no matter through
whom they may come into this world, that we may all be one on Other Earth, which existed before the foundation
of this world. And thus the quote in John 8:58, "Before Abraham was, I am (lived on Other Earth). And reading
John 17:5, "O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self, with the glory I had with thee before the world was."
Jesus says in Matthew 5:4,6, The Father shall comfort you. Hunger and thirst after righteousness. Matthew 6:34,
Be not thinking so much about the future, but keep focused here in the moment; for today there is much evil
rising up from your soul which you must learn about and deal with if you are ever going to become
Master of the temple in which you are presently dwelling.
Matthew 20:28, Give up your earthly pursuits of fame and fortune, those illusions of attaining great earthly rewards
and give your life to the many who are seeking. Reading Matthew 9:38, Pray ye therefore that the Lord of the Harvest will
send forth labourers into his harvest. However, the time will come, as it has before, when the people will seek to derail
the truth givers - believing that they doeth God's service because they are ruled by their evil souls,
the same souls they say are the good in them as they go persecuting the labourers.
There is nothing covered that shall not be revealed, and hid that shall not be known. However, these things are
hidden from the wise and prudent and only revealed to whomsoever the Father sees ready. This is the way,
the truth, and the life. No one cometh unto the Father but by this way shown. If you understand these teachings,
happy are you who do them. Peace be unto you. Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more lest a worse thing come unto thee.
Matthew 26:38-39, The soul is always a problem in this world, as we see Jesus not wanting to suffer what he must
suffer to fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament, but in his mind knowing that it must be done. Matthew 26:42,
Jesus overcomes his soul once again to say, Father, thy will, will be done. And Matthew 26:44, Again Jesus prayed
to the Father to make sure that it was the Will of his Father, and not a deception of his soul. And the confirmation
of his praying and understanding is evident as shown in Matthew 26 versus 53,54 and 56.
In Matthew 27:46, Jesus calls to the Father outwardly, not knowing that it is all part of the Father's plan to
fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament with the sponge, vinegar and reed. Reading Luke 23:46, "Father, unto thy
hands I commit my spirit (mind)."
Remember, time and time again, Jesus says to pray to the Father lest we enter into temptation.
