Matthew 6:25-34 Take no thought of your life, what you shall eat or drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall wear … Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all of these things shall be added unto you
Who are the brethren of Christ, it is those who do the will of the Father in Heaven (Matthew 12:50).
Do not the brethren of Christ seek God’s kingdom? Of course they do or Christ would not call them his brethren (Matthew 12:50). The followers of the Son of God are the brethren of the Son of God because they do the will of the Father in Heaven. And such brethren have needed and yet did not receive, shelter, food, and clothing:
Matthew 25:42 I was hungry and you gave me no meat ….
Matthew 25:43 I was a stranger and you did me take me in [no shelter]. I was naked and you did not clothe me …..
Matthew 25:40 … Verily I say to you that inasmuch as you have failed to do it unto one of the least of these my brethren you have failed to do it unto me
Therefore, since Christ is stating that his brethren suffered hunger, suffered thirst, suffered nakedness, suffered lack of shelter, then how can it be that to be a brother of Christ means you shall have all the food you need, all the clothing you need, all the shelter you require, as stated in Matthew 6:33?
Matthew 6:25-34 Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink, or what you will wear for clothing … Observe the fowl of the air for they do not sow, do not reap or gather into barns …. Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you
Do the fowls of the air never store food for themselves:
” Some birds will also cache food throughout the late summer and autumn to store up extra supplies, which they will visit all winter long.” See: birding.about.com/od/birdfeeders/a/What-Winter-Birds-Eat.htm
When the Pharisees wrote their lie in Matthew 6:33 and Luke 12:22-31, mankind had little knowledge of the behavior of the vast majority of birds. Still believe that is the Son of God speaking in Matthew 6:33 saying no bird stores food in barns, when we know that there are birds that do store food for the winter, and if that bird has access to a barn, it will use the shelter of the barn for its winter home and cache of food? Many animals toil to store up caches of food for themselves to eat during the winter months. The fowls never gather into barns, meaning they never store food? That is a lie in Matthew 6:33 that fowl of the air do not store food for themselves because some birds do store up food for themselves, and Christ does not lie; therefore, Matthew 6:33 is not true testimony of Christ, but is one among other deceptions applied to Matthew and John’s writings by the 325 AD Council of Nicaea.
As to King David’s writings in Proverbs and Psalms, when David wrote same, it was at a time when the Lord Almighty punished wickedness. Therefore, God would bring down the unjust and the filthy, he rescued the children of Israel from their enemies (and gave them over to their enemies when Israel turned to doing evil). He stood up for the poor, the down trodden, the widows and the orphans. God rescued the humble from their enemies. It is was King David with the Lord his strength, and other kings of Israel who obeyed God, that had reign in the world prior to the time of John the Baptist.
But it is not a King David with the Lord his strength, and other kings of Israel who obeyed God, that have reign in the world as of John the Baptist. In the last days, the Lord sent John the Baptist. John the Baptist, a Jewish man dressed in animal skins, eating locusts and honey and living in the wilderness. He has no army, he is not a king of Israel but he heralds God’s coming Son of God. John does not bring penalty under law, he says repent because the kingdom of God is coming, therefore not speaking imminent wrath of God upon evildoers who refuse to stop doing evil; and he baptized with water upon repentance. You are cleansed, you are forgiven all who did evil but turn from doing evil. No penalty under law from John. Many evildoers hearing John’s message of repentance turned from doing evil and John sprinkled them with water.
Where the Lord lets the filthy and unjust people coexist with the good people, how shall the Lord stand up for the poor to tear down the works of the unjust by killing them, as in the era of the prophets prophesying ‘repent or wrath’? One might say, let the Son of God miraculously produce the food, clothing and shelter his brethren need, but God does not always do it that way and only God knows why.
How awful that Matthew 6:33 would ever be brought upon a brother of Christ who is in need of food, or clothing or shelter, as if such a one cannot possibly be of Christ for if he were then the Lord would provide for all of his needs. And some, like youtube Frystikken, have been caught up in the lies of Pharisees, thinking all that is written in Matthew and John’s gospel and his Book of Revelation is strictly Christ’s testimony, when in fact it is not. Thinking one must sell all their possessions to be of Christ, then how shall a brother in Christ help another brother in Christ, if all brethren in Christ sell all they own and then they all have nothing? But we see there are good people who are in possession of food, shelter and clothing and they provide same to a brother in Christ whom they see is in need and they receive eternal life with God:
Matthew 25:34-40 Then the King shall say to those on his right hand, come blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me drink. I was a stranger and you took me in …. Whenever you have done it unto the least of my brethren, you have done it unto me
The good people who had extra food, extra clothing, who did have shelter saw a brother in Christ in need and gave to him to alleviate his suffering.
David’s sayings are true, the Lord provides for his own, never a child of his out begging for food, but that was in David’s time in the era of the law and prophets prophesying (Matthew 11:13). It is not so in John the Baptist’s time and will not be again until the Lord returns to remove all evil people from the earth (Matthew 13:41). It shall not be again until Christ rules on earth (Rev. 11:15). It is true in David’s time that the children of Israel had their mighty God come to their rescue to defeat all of their enemies, when Israel obeyed God; but that is not so as of the time of John the Baptist, not until God sends judgment that ends with the return of Christ to reign on earth:
Matthew 13:30 Let both grow until harvest
Matthew 13:41 Christ shall send forth his angels who shall remove all evil people and all offensive things from the earth
Isaiah 42:3 A bruised reed [evil people] he shall not break nor smoking flax [evil people] shall he quench until he sends forth judgment unto truth [victory]
Both Matthew 6:33 and Luke 12:22-31 are lies, wherein it is claimed that Christ said the mark of a person being a seeker of God’s righteousness is that they shall have all the food, clothing and shelter they require. And we know that Matthew 6:33 and Luke 12:22-31 are lies because there are people of Christ who do suffer hunger from lack of food, suffer thirst from lack of water, and suffer the outdoor elements because of lack of shelter, suffer nakedness for lack of clothing because Christ says:
Matthew 25:42 I was hungry and you gave me no meat
Matthew 25:43 I was a stranger and you did not take me in [no shelter]. I was naked and you did not clothe me …..
So it is a lie in Matthew 6:33 that all who seek God’s righteousness get feed, get clothed, get shelter in this world that is the kingdoms of men.
Pharisees have the money (Romans 15:27). Christians have their own networking through the Pharisees’ churches for Gentiles to get food, shelter and clothing for themselves, but followers of the Son of God do not have such a network to rely on.
The Pharisees wrote Matthew 6:33 and Luke 12:22-31, and the reason they wrote said passage is so that the Pharisees and their Gentile Christians could say: you who reject Paul’s teaching and yet claim to be of Christ through his word to the House of Israel, you obviously are not of Christ because you do not have food, shelter and clothing – go read Matthew 6:33 and Luke 12:22-31, see Christ says you would not be in need if you were following him. Christ would see to it that you have all the food, water, clothing and shelter you need if you were indeed of Christ. The Pharisees’ Christendom had and still has the money, had and still has the networking to take care of their own Gentile Christians.
The Christians would say: you who say you are of Christ and reject Paul’s teaching, you must not be following God’s kingdom, seeking his righteousness or you would not be begging for food, begging for water, begging for clothing, begging for shelter, because our bible says the Lord provides all that is needed to his own who are doing his righteousness. And look at the wealth of us Christians, our church people are fed, clothed and sheltered so that proves that we are the ones following God, because we have food, we have shelter and we have clothing.
You poor people who claim to be of Christ and are begging for food,
begging for water, begging for shelter, begging for clothing, that
proves you are not of God. But if you want to be of God, come to our
way of thinking by eating Paul’s flesh then you will be doing the will
of God and you will then have all the food, clothing and shelter you
need. Look at the glorious bride of Christ on earth, we are not in need
of shelter, food and clothing because we are doing God’s will. Come to
the church and we will give you food, clothing and shelter, but to get
same you must eat of Paul’s flesh.
And to the brethren of Christ in need of food, shelter and clothing, the
Christians would say to them: Think that you can follow the Son of
God’s instructions to Israel and be saved, you are wrong? See how wrong
you are, for your own master says if you were doing his will you would
not be starving because of no food, thirsty because you have no water,
out in the cold because you have no shelter, naked because you have no
clothing, but we see you are in need of these things so you cannot
possibly be of Christ. Come to eat Paul’s flesh and then you shall
have no want, for the church of Christ has all it needs to take care of
Christ says he was hungry, he was thirsty and he was naked, and he was turned away by those who could have fed him, could have given him water and could have clothed him – and he speaks of his brethren who were in such condition when he says he was hungry, thirsty, etc. Did not Christ speak of the deception of riches? So to think that one who has all the food, clothing and shelter he needs is necessarily a sign that such person is seeking God’s righteousness and therefore God has rewarded him is errant thinking. Matthew 6:33 is a lie of the Pharisees. To think that a person who is lacking food, water, shelter or clothing is automatically signifying that such person is not of God is errant thinking. Matthew 6:33 is a lie.
