Random Peacock Quote

“A Wise Man Seeks True Knowledge, and a Man of Good Understanding Searches Out the Truths concerning all Important Subjects; but, an Ignorant Fool only Studies his own Face in the Mirror, looking for the Beauty of it, as if he made it; or, as if his Mother Created it, for which he Imagines that he should be very Proud of it, instead of only being Thankful to God for it: beCause he could have been Born in that very Ugly Body over there in the Land of Idiots, where they Smoke Weeds, and Eat with Dogs and Hogs.”&

Is it a SIN to Make MERCHANDISE of The Words of God??

Tens of thousands of Professing “Ministers of God” have been Preaching what they Deem is the TRUTH, even without any Real Evidence that it is The Truth; but, as if that were not Bad Enough, they have also now gone into the BUSINESS of Selling what they call “the Word of God.” However, if those books and recordings were the Words of God, why would they not Obey that Scripture that Reveals, “Buy the Truth, and Sell it not;…” written by King Solomon? See: Proverb 23:23, KJV. See also, Matthew 13:44. Indeed, they completely Ignore what Jesus said, “Take these Things away from here; and do not make my Father’s House a House of Merchandise.” Therefore, the next Time that you Hear of or See something that is for Sale in the Name of God, be Aware of the Motives that Drive such People to make such Sales: because the Servants of God are Supposed to “Be Contented with Food and Clothing…” as the Apostle Paul Revealed, which this Booklet MAGNIFIES in PLAIN English for those Wise People who still have Spiritual “Ears that can Hear.” Indeed, there are certain Worthy Causes for which People should Contribute their Wealth; but, not for those People who do not Teach this same Great Truth, which will be Accepted by all True Christians: because it is Based on Biblical Truth, such as “Freely you have Received, therefore Freely Give.” In Fact, the Truth is a Gift from God, like Rain and Sunshine, which should be Provided Free of Charge by those Wise People who Love it, which should include YOU, my Friend.

“And the Jews’ Passover Feast was near at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, in Order to Keep the Feast; and he Discovered within the Grounds of the Temple those People that Sold Oxen, Sheep, Doves, and many Things — as if it were the Chief Market Place — as well as the Exchangers of Money, who were sitting in Padded Chairs behind Tables under the Porches; and when he had made a Scourge of small Leather Cords that were Attached to a Stick, he Drove them all out of the Temple, along with the Sheep and the Oxen; and he Poured out the Exchanger’s Money, and quickly Overthrew their Tables as he ran from here to there, Causing Great Confusion among them; and he said to those People who Sold Doves, ‘Take these Things away from here; and do not make my Father’s House a House of Merchandise.’ And his Disciples Remembered that it was written, ‘The Zeal of the People who Serve in your House has Eaten me up,’ which Means that their Zeal has Destroyed the Effectiveness of the Words of God: because few Intelligent People in this World would have any Faith in the Words that were Spoken by such Hypocrites, Deceivers, and Moneymongers.” The New MAGNIFIED Version of the Good News according to Saint John Zebedee Boanerges, Chapter 2, Verses 13 through 17, in PLAIN English, for Modern-day Zealots who make Merchandise of the Words of God for the Sake of getting Gain.

The following Quotes are from the New King James Version (NKJ) of Matthew 10, with my Notes in {Brackets}. All Emphasis in bold lettering are my own.

  1. “And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.
  2. “Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
  3. “Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;
  4. “Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.
  5. “These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: "Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans.
  6. “But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
  7. “And as you go, preach, saying, `The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'
    {NOTE: The above Commandments are Contradictory with what Happened Later, according to the Book of the ACTS of the Apostles, when they were Commanded to go to the Gentiles: because the Israelites obviously Rejected the Good News, even as the Gentiles are now Rejecting the Good News: because of their Vain Traditions, such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween, and so on. In other Words, the Tables have been Turned Over.}
  8. “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
    {NOTE: In other Words, do not Charge Money for the Gifts of God: because they are Free.}
  9. “Provide neither gold nor silver nor copper in your moneybelts,
  10. “nor bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staffs; for a worker is worthy of his food.
    {NOTE: Those Words were Addressed to Missionaries, only; not to the General Public, who should Voluntarily Support such Missionaries with their Necessities: because they are Compensated by the Blessings.}
  11. “Now{,} whatever city or town you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and stay there {un}till you go out.
  12. “And when you go into a household, greet it.
  13. “If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.
    {Notice that the Disciples had to Judge who was Worthy, and who was not Worthy.}
  14. “And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.
  15. “Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!
    {Notice that almost all People are still Rejecting his Words of Truth.}
  16. “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.
    {Notice that Jesus is referring to his Followers as SHEEP: because Sheep should Follow their Shepherd; but they must be Aware of those People who are like Wolves, who Consume far more than they Need.}
  17. “But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues.
    {NOTE: When was the last Time that you were Cast Out of a Church for Teaching the Truth?}
  18. “And you will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles.
    {NOTE: Like Daniel, the Disciples of Jesus did not get along very well with Secular Leaders, until they got them Converted to the Truth.}
  19. “But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak;
  20. “for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in {through} you.
  21. “Now{,} brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.
    {NOTE: In other Words, they are Betrayers of Trust.}
  22. “And you will be hated by all for My name's sake. But he who endures {the Persecution} to the end will be saved.
    {NOTE: In other Words, many People will not be Able to Endure the Persecution of the Unbelievers, and therefore they will not be Qualified to be Saved for Positions within the Government of God, which is the Kingdom of God: because they did not Suffer like their Master, while Enduring to the End.}
  23. “But when they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through {all of} the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
    {NOTE: In other Words, Jesus Knew that the Children of Israel would Multiply so much that his Disciples would have a Difficult Time getting his Message Spread unto ALL of those Cities, even NOW.}
  24. “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.
    {Notice that most Professing “Christians” Judge themselves to be Better than their Master, and even Award themselves with Great Mansions, Luxury Cars, and even Airplanes!}
  25. “It is enough for a disciple that he be {is} like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household!
    {Notice that Jesus did not Speak Evil of Masters and Servants, as many Preachers do; but he actually Established the Goodness of Masters and Servants. (See: Were you Born to be a Master, or a Servant??) Yes, as Unbelievable as it might seem, it is the only Reasonable Solution for many Massive Problems: because most People were Born to be Servants, who would be Lost without Masters! However, you never did Hear any Sermon in any Church about that Good Doctrine! Remember that Servants are not Slaves.}
  26. “Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.
    {Indeed, I just now made known a Great Truth that has been Hidden for nearly 150 Years!}
  27. “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.
    {NOTE: Remember to be as Wise as a Snake, and do not Preach the Doctrine of Masters and Servants, lest you should be Branded as a RACIST, BIGOT, Supremacist, or at least a Relative of the Colorful Peacock from Angel Ridge, who was Born to be a SERVANT!}
  28. “And do not fear those {People} who kill the body but cannot kill the soul {Spirit}. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul {Spirit} and body in hell {in the Place that is like Gehenna, where the Fire is never Quenched, and the Worms never Die}.
  29. “Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father's will {Knowledge}.
  30. “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
  31. “Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. {See: WHY were we BORN??}
  32. “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.
  33. “But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.
    {NOTE: In other Words, do not be a Spiritual COWARD like your President, who is Afraid to take up his Sword of Truth in Order to Defeat his Enemies. See: Are you a Spiritual Coward??}
  34. “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.
  35. “For I have come to `set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.'
    {Notice that the Words of Truth do exactly that!}
  36. “And `a man's foes will be those of his own household.'
    {NOTE: For Example, I am Greatly Respected in other Countries, who are not Attempting to Justify all of our SINS, nor even their Sins: because they are more Humble and Honest: because they are not so Puffed Up with PRIDE because of their False Riches.}
  37. “He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
    {NOTE: How many People are Willing to make Enemies for the Truth’s Sake, even though they Know that if they are not Willing to make such Enemies, they will not have any Positions within the Government of God?}
  38. “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.
    {NOTE: In other Words, you must be Willing to SUFFER for the Sake of Righteousness: because it is by Suffering that we are Refined like Gold in the Furnace of Afflictions.}
  39. “He who finds {Saves} his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find {Save} it.
    {NOTE: In other Words, if you Seek to Save yourself Alive, rather than Suffer Persecution and Death for the Sake of the Truth, you will Lose your Position within the Kingdom of God: because you are Unworthy to Rule with those Saints who Overcame the World.}
  40. “He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.
  41. “He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.
    {NOTE: Therefore, be Aware how you Receive or Reject ME: because I am a very Blest Servant of the Supreme Ruler, whose Tale of Truth and Wisdom is Unsurpassed. See The New MAGNIFIED Version of The PROVERBS of King Solomon, for a Good Example!}
  42. “And whoever gives one of these little ones {so much as} only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward."

In other Words, the Blessings that were Placed on Jesus by his Father were also Placed on his Disciples, whom we should Love and Respect for their Goodness, even if they might have some Faults or Weaknesses. After all, only Jesus Christ was Perfect in all Ways from the Time of his Conception. However, that is not to say that we should not Strive for Perfection, just because we were Conceived in Sin, and Born in the Prison of Lies and Sins: because, by United Effort, we too can be Blest, even as the Disciples were Blest, who United themselves by Means of Fasting and Praying in the Upper Room for 40 Days and 40 Nights after the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, at the end of which Time they were Blest with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
