The Beatitudes- THE KEYS within each context!

2 Timothy 2:15

STUDY to show yourself approved unto GOD, workman not be shamed rightly dividing the word of truth.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

It is important that we study the WORD of GOD in it’s context, rather than cherry pick scriptures to fit our ideologies, feelings and emotions.

To STUDY is to devote yourself to a particular study or subject.

In order to understand a subject we must study it a little closer, jump a little higher, and dig a little deeper. Knowledge is within our reach, but we must reach for it. Once we find it, Knowledge is POWER. People are destroyed for lack of information and without that information they perish

A person who is rooted in the WORD of GOD cannot be swayed by every wind of doctrine, perception and idea. This is WHY we STUDY. We don’t study to prove anyone, but study to show ourselves proven to GOD, and confidence to ourselves.

I LOVE the Beatitudes

There are so many treasures found, just within those 9 concepts of Blessings. So much to chew on, so much to discover.

LET’S DIG A LITTLE DEEPER, AND JUMP A LITTLE HIGHER

Mathew Chapter 5 BEGINS with the sermon on a MOUNT. JESUS teaching the Beatitudes to the disciples, his followers, and everyone who desires to learn TODAY. The invitation still stands today! If you consider yourself to be a follower of Jesus, and or disciple of JESUS then you must OBEY his teachings! Beatitudes are TEACHINGS that are filled with wisdom of GOD, keys that unlock the blessings of God, and treasures are discovered within each context.

I will do my best to share the treasures that I have discovered in my STUDY. I am sure you will discover even more treasures as you dig a little deeper, and jump a little higher.


1.BLESSED are poor in spirit for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. [verse 3]

Who are poor in spirit? and how are they blessed? It just doesn’t make sense!! Yes, it doesn’t make sense to our natural ears, but to the spiritual ears, THIS IS GOLD! The poor in spirit are those THAT lack spiritual sense, do not have all spiritual things figured out, lack understanding, wisdom of this world…REJOICE for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to you! YOU may be rejected by the system of this world, but you are accepted in the KINGDOM. The KINGDOM that is operated by FAITH, the unseen realm of the spirit, that is operated by PLACING confidence and the assurance in what you cannot see. This KINGDOM does not function as this world does, and does not operate by the wisdom of this world. Blessed, and FAVORED because when we are weak, he is STRONG!


  1. BLESSED are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” [verse 4]

To mourn is to express deep grief and sorrow.

Those who FEEL or express such sorrow for others, here on this EARTH will be comforted with HOPE and Strength that comes from above, not of this world. I know this seem to not make sense, in the natural sense, but the KINGDOM is oftentimes operated by things that seem unnatural to us, but make perfect sense in the spirit realm. We must not lean on our human understanding, but SUBMIT to GOD and he will direct our path.


3.” BLESSED are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. “ [verse 5]

The meek are those who endure insults without resentment, not violent or strong but are submissive, respectful, and kind.

They forgive easy and carry on with patience in their heart, gentle in their spirit, and are loving in their ways. They understand that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but are mighty through the pulling down of strongholds. They do not wage war against humans, but rather settle matters in the spirit realm.


4. ” BLESSED are those who hunger and thirst for Righteousness, for they will be filled.” [ verse 6]

BLESSED and FAVORED are you, when you thirst and hunger for RIGHTEOUSNESS, when you search high, and dig deep to STAND in the Righteousness of GOD.

To hunger is to literally crave or have a deep urgency in your spirit, as for food; and thirst as to desire satisfaction and deep cravings for the things of the Spirit .

When you reject evil, and seek the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD, do not tolerate sinful things, your reward is GREAT in heaven.


  1. BLESSED are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. “[ verse 7]

Show mercy every chance you get, because this is the key to the KINGDOM.

Forgiveness is the act of giving up control or resentment towards the offender.

As you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly father will also forgive you your trespasses.

Mercy is that undeserving compassion shown to the offender when they don’t quite deserve it


  1. BLESSED are the pure in heart, for they will see GOD.” [ verse 8 ]

To be pure is to be free from dirt, dust or taint.

As a white sheet of blanket, completely spotless, free of poluttens, and or wrinkles. Our Righteousness is filthy rags, but when we surrender our dirty rags, in exchange for clothes of GLORY, we are blameless and spotless in the eyes of GOD. Those who are innocent as doves, CHOOSE to look through the lenses of purity, rather than the common sense of this world, will see the purity of GOD. They will not be polluted by the world, tainted by the pleasures of this world, but INSTEAD be filled with purity and Righteousness of GOD.


7.” BLESSED are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of GOD.” [verse 9]


Image from Pixabay.comThe one’s who create peace rather than stir trouble, the one’s who bring people together, rather than cause division, these are the Children of GOD. By their fruit you will recognize them.


  1. BLESSED are those who are persecuted because of Righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.” [verse 10]


Picture from Pixabay.comIt says right here! Harassed, punished, or afflicted for RIGHTEOUSNESS sake, for the gospel and truth of JESUS. It doesn’t make sense in the natural realm, but in the spirit realm these are KEYS that unlock KINGDOM, Righteousness and PURITY of GOD.


  1. BLESSED are you when people insult you, persecute you,and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be GLAD, because great is your reward in heaven.”[verses 11-12]

Image from Pixabay.com

In the end WHEN people persecute you, insult you, throw all kinds of evil against you, KNOW you are on the right path, and forgiveness is the WAY. Remember our battle is NOT human flesh, but principalities and powers that are set up in high places to destroy us.The BLESSING of GOD lies in UNLOCKING THESE TREASURES and walking in it’s context.
