The Teachings of Yashaya the Anointed One: Matthew 5

The Teachings of Yashaya the Anointed One given in Matthew 5 expresses the Divine Principles given by the Eternal Principle for us to live in His Kingdom.

When Yashaya saw the multitudes, he went up to a mountain to teach the people the things the Father had commanded him. And when he was set in the place where he would teach the people, he called forward his disciples. They came to him so they could hear clearly the things he would command the people, so they could teach the same things to the people as they had been given authority to do.

After he had presented his disciples before the people, he began to speak, and taught the people, Increased are you if you shall give heed to the words of these twelve whom I have chosen from among you, to minister unto you, and to be your servants. I have given power to them to baptize you with water if you repent and believe the things that I shall give to you from my Father.

After you are baptized with water, which is the covenant you shall make before the Eternal Father, the Covenant confirms that you will do the things that I command you to do this day; see then, I will baptize you with fire and with the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost will cause you to know that the things that I will give to you are true. And this fire will burn within you, giving you a remission of your sins by the peace that you will find in your souls. Because you are poor in spirit and seek for the kingdom of heaven. It is this kingdom that I shall give to you this day.

How fortunate are those who are humble in their spirits and approach me to acquire the knowledge and blessings that the Father has bestowed upon me for their benefit? Their souls will be satisfied, and they will gain entry into the kingdom of heaven.

Similarly, how fortunate are those who mourn because they yearn for greater righteousness but cannot find it within the teachings and regulations propagated by humanity? They will find solace and consolation in the words that I offer them today.

How blessed are the gentle individuals who strive to align their actions with the will of the Father in every aspect of their lives? They will inherit the earth that has been meticulously prepared for them.

How fortunate are those who earnestly desire righteousness with humility and a humble heart? They will be filled with the Holy Spirit, who will impart wisdom and knowledge to them.

And how fortunate are those who show mercy and love to others, withholding judgment for their wrongdoings? They will receive mercy in return for their own transgressions.

Fortunate are all those with pure hearts who seek to know the Eternal Father and His ways in righteousness. Their desire is to understand the truth and not to exploit it for their own selfish desires like the impure. Indeed, they will come to know the Great Creator.

How enriched are the peacemakers who refrain from engaging in contentious disputes over doctrine? These individuals will come to know the true doctrine, and they will be recognized as the children of the Eternal Father.

How fortunate are those who endure persecution and mockery from others because of their righteous actions? They will find their peace and happiness in the kingdom of heaven.

And how blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and spread false rumors about you because of your commitment to me? Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great. The prophets who came before you were also persecuted in the same way, as they were sent by me to teach these truths to the people.

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad in the face of persecution and affliction, for in doing so, you follow in the footsteps of the prophets who came before you. Your reward will come from heaven, where you will receive peace and comfort from the Spirit of the Eternal Father.

You are the salt of the earth, serving as examples to all people of the peace that you receive from the Father. However, if you lose your saltiness, how can you restore the earth’s flavor? It would be useless, only fit to be thrown away and trampled by others. The Father does not desire those He has chosen to provide a false representation of Him.

I am the source of light in a world overshadowed by darkness, given by the Father to illuminate and guide. Those who choose to follow me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life. Moreover, since you are united with me and have received me from the Father, you too are now the light of the world. Together, with the light bestowed upon us by the Father, we become like a city positioned on a hill, radiating light to all corners of the world. Such a city cannot be hidden, as it is visible to all. Therefore, those who have received this light cannot conceal it from the world.

Likewise, no one lights a candle and then restricts its light by covering it with a container. The light cannot be measured or portioned out to others but should be placed on a candlestick so that all may partake of its illumination. It will provide light for everyone in the house, without discrimination.

Therefore, let your light shine brightly before all people through the good deeds you perform, motivated by the light that the Father has given you. By observing your righteous actions, others will witness your good works and glorify your Father who resides in heaven.

Do not think that I have come to abolish the law given to you by Moses or the teachings of the prophets who came before me. I have not come to destroy the law or the prophecies; rather, I have come to fulfill them completely. You see, the law of Moses and the prophets pointed everyone towards me, revealing in darkness what you now see in the light.

Truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not even the smallest letter or stroke of a pen will pass from the law until everything is accomplished. This includes all the commandments given by the Father, which guide you to worship the Great Creator with all your heart, might, mind, and soul, and to treat others as you would like to be treated. After all, these commandments are the essence of the law and the prophets. No new laws will be given except for the commandments that I am giving you now.

Therefore, whoever breaks any of these commandments I give you and teaches others to do the same will not find salvation in the kingdom of heaven. The commandments must be kept there as well. But those who faithfully observe and teach these commandments until they are fulfilled will be called great and will be saved in the kingdom of heaven.

I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. The scribes and Pharisees may sit in the seat of Moses and teach the commandments, but they do not live by them and even lead others astray. Therefore, I say to you, those who do these commandments and teach them will be saved in the kingdom of heaven. Behold, I will give you the law and commandments of my Father. Believe in me, repent of your sins, and come to me with a humble and contrite spirit. The commandments are already before you, and you must understand that in me, the law is fulfilled. So come to me and find salvation. I assure you, unless you keep my commandments, which I have been commanded to give you at this time, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

You have heard that it was said to those of old, “You shall not murder,” and that whoever commits murder will be liable to judgment. This is the law that the scribes and Pharisees teach you, but they do not truly understand it. They have interpreted it as an endorsement of retaliation, stating, “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth,” and prescribing stoning and killing as punishments for those who violate the law. However, how can the commandment be fulfilled if you kill the one who has been killed? Are you not both then guilty of the same sin?

But I tell you, whoever kills another person, regardless of the manner or the reason, is committing a sin. And whoever harbors anger towards their brother for any reason is also in danger of facing the same judgment, for that anger in their heart may lead to the death of their brother. Furthermore, whoever holds their brother in contempt or mocks them will be subject to the law established by the council that administers justice. And whoever insults their brother, saying, “You fool,” will be in danger of a hellish punishment akin to a burning fire that consumes their soul because of their demeaning thoughts towards their brother.

Therefore, if you are presenting yourself at the altar as a righteous offering to the Great Creator and you remember that your brother or sister has something against you because of your actions towards him,

Leave your gift there before the altar and go first to reconcile with your brother or sister. Only then should you come and offer your gift in righteousness, ensuring that you are in a state of harmony with your brother or sister before presenting yourself as an offering to the Great Creator.

Yes, be kind to your brother and show respect to those who disagree with you and see you as their adversary, while you are still on good terms with them, so that you may maintain a positive relationship with them. Otherwise, if someone who considers you their adversary causes you to sin, you will be held accountable. If you are found guilty of any sin, you will be handed over to the judge, and the judge will hand you over to the officer, who will cast you into prison.

For I am your righteous judge, and it is by my words that you will be judged. If you have offended your brother in anger, you will not be freed from the distress of your soul until you have faced the consequences of your actions. This is the state in which you will find yourself in the kingdom of my Father, and it resembles a prison. Truly, I tell you, you will not be released from there until you have paid the utmost penalty for your wrongdoing.

Listen carefully, you have heard that your leaders said in the past, “You shall not commit adultery.” However, the scribes and Pharisees have set an unrighteous example for you in this matter. They look at women with lustful intent, indulging in multiple concubines and wives, justifying their wickedness based on the practices of old.

But I tell you, anyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Therefore, your leaders have led you astray with their examples. You have regarded them as your guides, believing that they have the insight and authority to act on your behalf according to what the Great Creator has commanded.

Look at the Yawadas (Judas), and observe how their leaders, who guide and serve as their role models, mislead them and cause them to sin against the Father, disobeying His commandments. It is better for a person to have no leader than to be led into the same eternal punishment as their leader, whom they have chosen as their standard. If your appointed leader, these are pastors, priests, bishops, and clergymen, who are meant to guide you and provide spiritual enlightenment, becomes a transgressor and causes you to stumble, remove them from their position.

It is better for you to enter the kingdom of the Eternal Father with one eye, symbolizing a willingness to let go of corrupt leadership, than to have both eyes intact but be cast into the unquenchable fires of hell. It is preferable for you to secure your own salvation rather than being condemned to hell alongside your leaders, where their torment never ends and the fire is never extinguished.

Furthermore, if your right-hand causes you to stumble and leads you into darkness due to the works of your leaders’ unrighteous example, then cut it off and discard it. It is more beneficial for you to sacrifice one of your members, forsaking those who perform deeds contrary to the will of the Eternal Father on your behalf than to allow your entire body to be thrown into hell.

You have heard that it was said, “Whoever divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.” This statement was made to justify their lustful desires for women other than their wives, as they believed that through a divorce, they could free themselves from sin.

But I tell you, whoever divorces his wife with the intention of justifying the lust in his heart and engaging in sexual immorality, commits adultery and remains entangled in sin because of the covenant he made with his wife. And whoever marries a woman who is not divorced also commits adultery. I emphasize this point because your leaders justify their own lustful pursuits with women who are not their wives while condemning those who engage in fornication without being married according to their laws.

Once again, you have heard that it was said to those of old, “You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Great Spirit.” This was said to keep you bound to their authority, as they have positioned themselves on the throne of the Eternal Father.

But I tell you, do not make oaths at all. Do not swear by heaven, for it is the throne of the Eternal Father, and only He can fulfill His oaths upon this earth. Your leaders cannot fulfill His oaths in unrighteousness.

Likewise, do not swear by the earth, for it is His footstool, where His oaths will be fulfilled. As I am here to fulfill them, do not swear by Jerusalem either, for it is the city of the great King who is present on earth to fulfill all that is sworn by the Father.

Nor should you make vows by your own head, for you cannot make a single hair on your head white or black.

Instead, let your communication be simple and honest. Let your yes mean yes, indicating your commitment and ability to fulfill a task, and let your no mean no, expressing your limitations. Anything beyond this can lead to deception and wrongdoing.

Once again, you have heard that it was said, “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth,” teaching you to respond to others by returning the same harm they have inflicted upon you.

But I tell you, do not retaliate against evil with evil. I have commanded you to treat others as you would want to be treated. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other cheek to them as well, showing them your love and willingness to reconcile.

If someone takes you to court and tries to take away your coat, do not fight back to keep it, but also give them your cloak.

And if someone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles, demonstrating that your love is greater than the coercion they exert upon you.

If someone asks something of you and you have the means to give, do not withhold from them. And if someone wishes to borrow from you, do not turn them away, lest they consider you their enemy. These teachings are meant to guide you in showing love, forgiveness, and generosity to others, even when faced with mistreatment or hardship.

You have been taught by your leaders that you should love your neighbors who are like-minded and believe as you do while hating your enemies and excluding those who do not share your beliefs, so as not to be influenced by an adversary.

But I tell you, love your enemies. Bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat and persecute you.

By doing so, you will demonstrate that you are children of your Father in heaven, who shows no partiality. He causes the sun to rise on both the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust, for all are His beloved children.

If you only love those who love you in return, what reward do you have? Even tax collectors do the same. And you know that they are considered sinful, yet your Father still loves them.

If you greet only your brethren, what more are you doing than others? Even tax collectors do that. They greet only those who are their friends.

Understand that I have come to fulfill all the teachings and laws of old. The Father has sent me to you so that you may repent, perform the works that I have commanded, and follow the example I have set. Through this, you will be commanded to be perfect in the love you have for one another, just as your Father in heaven has a perfect love for you.

In summary, I encourage you to extend your love, kindness, and prayers even to those who oppose or mistreat you. By doing so, you reflect the love and perfection of your Eternal Heaven Father.
