  2. Yes Jesus is our hope – can you hear his voice in…..

    The message of The 11 (“The narrow gate”)

    “The eleven disciples went to Galilee”
    “Where Jesus had told them to go”
    They heard His voice and obeyed His will
    Despite uncertainty down below

    Jesus spoke to them at length
    He wasn’t really a Tweeter
    Only 3 of them wrote Scripture
    Matthew John and Peter

    “Feed my sheep” said Jesus, for though
    “Heaven and earth will pass away”
    I have the words of eternal life and
    “My words will never pass away”

    “Enter through the narrow gate”
    The voice of Jesus through the eleven
    Believe in Jesus “through their message”
    And “eat from the tree of life” in heaven

    Jesus commissioned the eleven
    With “everything I have commanded you”
    “Teaching THEM to obey” Jesus
    And “THEM” means me and you !

    “The command given by our Lord and Savior”
    Is not a Pharisee speaking alone
    It came rather “through your apostles”
    Matthew Peter and John

    If a Pharisee boasts proudly
    Those men added nothing to my message
    He doesn’t speak for Jesus
    His words are nothing more than garbage

    Bibliography
    All “quotes” in “quotation marks” are from the writings of the Apostles Matthew John and Peter in the Bible, mostly the “Red Letter” words of Jesus. [Matthew, John, Revelation, 2 Peter – NIV]

    • Dear Sunflower – all glory be to God !
      And regarding what God thinks is Most Important……..

      Poem – What is love?

      Two men came to Jesus
      With different motivations.
      They asked Him the same question
      Relevant to all the nations:

      Which is the Most Important?
      The answer was the same.
      Jesus did not manipulate
      He was not there to play a game.

      “Love the Lord your God” said Jesus
      as He quoted from The Law –
      to fulfill and not abolish
      was His purpose, full of awe.

      Jesus did not make all Scripture
      Into one new great commandment.
      He summarized The Law and Prophets
      “First and Greatest” and “The Second.”

      The Love of God is higher
      Than the love of any man.
      Receive from God, give back to God-
      Then to others, that’s His plan.

      The Love of God involves much more
      Than simply “love your fellow man.”
      Worship, trust, and pray to God,
      and obey Him – that’s His plan

      To worship and pray to neighbors,
      Whoever they may be,
      Or trust and obey our enemies
      Would be idolatry.

      The love of God is first and greatest,
      And the love of man is second.
      “All we need is love” are words
      of dead Beetles on the pavement.

      “The entire law is summed up in a single command”
      are not the words of Jesus our Salvation.
      It’s false teaching of Paul the Pharisee
      an “accuser of our brethren.”

      “Love” without God is Satan’s word through Paul
      in his chapter to the Corinthians.
      “I will show you the most excellent way”
      is the road to eternal perdition.

      Where is God in Paul’s chapter on love?
      Nowhere in view of the eye.
      Paul sings about himself like a Mexican Mariachi
      “I, I, I, I.”

      Jesus is The Most Excellent Way
      Not the words of a Pharisee.
      The words of Jesus are very clear.
      Jesus said, “You must follow ME.”
