himself started to teach also, but to the people of "their cities" (Jews).
"Now when John had heard in the prison the works
Christ, he sent two of
"And said unto him, Art thou he
that should come, or do we look for another?"
answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things
which ye do hear and see:"
"The blind receive their sight, and the lame
walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are
raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them." (Matthew
as the Anointed One when he came to John to be baptized (Matthew
3:13-15). In that moment a sudden realization came to John to
Esa. But later on when many
things happened, John lost that high state of realization and doubt
came to him about Esa.
<3>That is why he had sent his disciples to
make sure that
Esa is the one for whom
they were waiting.
Esa said that he was the
"And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be
offended in me." (Matthew 11:6)
<4>Blessed is he who creates no doubt about
the One (Christ) who
brings the truth for humanity, and is not offended in the truth he
"And as they departed,
began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out
into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the
"But what went ye out to see? A man
clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in
"But what went ye out for to see? A
prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet."
"For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I
send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way
before thee." (Matthew 11:7-10)
<5>John was not only a Prophet but he was a
great Prophet. He was one of those whose coming had been prophesied.
"Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born
of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist:
notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of
heaven is greater than he." (Matthew 11:11)
<6>Whoever is most humble is greatest.
"And from the days of John the Baptist until now
the kingdom of
violence, and the violent take it by force."
"For all the
and the law prophesied until John." (Matthew 11:12-13)
<7>John and his preaching were violently
opposed. But this preaching of the Kingdom Of
Heaven was given by all the
Prophets until John. In fact the very reason for choosing
Abram (Abraham) and
the Hebrews was so they would establish the
Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth, and the whole Old Testament
is about God's struggle
with the human kings to walk in His Ways.
"And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which
was for to come." (Matthew 11:14)
said, "If you are willing to accept it, John is the
Elias which all were waiting to come and prepare the way." <9>As
it is said, he went to preach to the
Jews. Now he started to attack them directly to prepare them so
that they would become bitter, so eventually crucify him, and the
prophecies about him would be fulfilled.
"He that hath ears to hear, let him hear."
<10>Those who have opened their spiritual
eyes and are ready to receive the truth will hear and understand
these things to be true.
"But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto
children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,"
"And saying, We have piped unto
you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have
"For John came neither eating nor drinking, and
they say, He hath a devil."
"The Son of man came eating and drinking, and
they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of
sinners. But wisdom is
justified of her children." (Matthew 11:16-19)
<11>The human always tries to find fault in
those who say the truth, so they can justify themselves why they
will not follow the one who says the truth. It has been evident all
through history. <12>People persecute the
Prophets and Seers
because they want to stay in their lower natures and not change and
be born into their higher selves.
<13>That is why when John came, fasted, wore
hard clothes, and ate simple food, they said he had a
devil. Then Christ
came and did the opposite, eating, drinking, and instead of going
into the desert, he stayed in the cities. Then they said he was a
friend of the publicans, a winebibber, and gluttonous. <14>It
does not matter what the Prophet does. Those who are blind and deaf
will not hear him, because they create so many
concepts and pay attention to so many unimportant things that
they forget about the main reason for which he had come, "the
(wisdom) will justify their actions. They will go through so much
suffering that they will have no choice but to eventually become
awakened into truth.
"Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most
of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:" (Matthew
<16>He did so many mighty works and miracles
but they would not repent. They either wanted more miracles, because
only greedy people are attracted to the person who does miracles, or
they accused him of doing them by the power of the
devil. <17>Also man forgets miracles, and they become
myths. That is why in the era to come, each person should become a
priest and seek the truth. Each man should be(come)
Divine and make others
"Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the
mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and
Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes."
"But I say unto you, It shall be
more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for
"And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto
heaven, shalt be brought
hell: for if the mighty
works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it
would have remained until this day."
"But I say unto you, That it shall be more
tolerable for the land of Sodom, in the day of judgment, than for
thee." (Matthew 11:21-24)
<18>He became very unhappy about the people.
He had done so many miracles and mighty works for them, but they
took the miracles and healing without repenting and following his
teachings. That is why he angrily cursed them.
"At that time
answered and said, I thank thee, O
Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these
things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto
Father: for so it seemed
good in thy sight." (Matthew 11:25-26)
<19>Those who think they are wise and prudent
expectations which will close their eyes to the truth. <20>Only
simple people and the pure in heart, "babes," can understand these
surrendered (the result) to the situation because it was His Will to
be this way, "for so it seemed good in thy sight."
"All things are delivered unto me of my
Father: and no man
knoweth the Son, but the
Father; neither knoweth
any man the
Father, save the Son,
and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him." (Matthew 11:27)
has given all knowledge and power to
Christ, who is the
son of God (Pure
<23>No man knows the
Father but those who have reached
Pure Consciousness (son) and those who see
God's qualities through the son, "and he to whomsoever the Son
will reveal him."
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will
give you rest."
"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for
I am meek and lowly in
heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls."
"For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
<24>In other words, "I have peace and I can
give it to those who are looking for it. I have no pride of the
false ego. I will
accept you as you are, and I will give to you from the fountain of
life so that you will thirst no more, and will bring you to the
peace of God."
<25>The burden of life is heavy because of
ignorance. When a
person goes to
God and sees that most of
his problems in reality are not problems at all but are there
because he created them himself by his unnecessary attachments,
desires, and greed, then he will simplify his life and find the
peace and truth in simplicity and simple things. <26>He will
surrender to the Lord, so his burden will be taken away or become
light, as the burden of all realized people is light, "my yoke is
easy, and my burden is light."
