How To Act Like God, Not Play God-Some Meat-The Heavenly Perspective-A Message From The Throne

Mat 5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

Mat 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

Mat 5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.

Mat 5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

Mat 5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

Mat 5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

Mat 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Mat 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Mat 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

CEV-Mat 5:48 But you must always act like your Father in heaven.

Perfect, Greek:





From G5056; complete (in various applications of labor, growth, mental and moral character, etc.); neuter (as noun, with G3588) completeness: - of full age, man, perfect.





From a primary word τέλλω tellō (to set out for a definite point or goal); properly the point aimed at as a limit, that is, (by implication) the conclusion of an act or state (termination [literally, figuratively or indefinitely], result [immediate, ultimate or prophetic], purpose); specifically an impost or levy (as paid): - + continual, custom, end (-ing), finally, uttermost. Compare G5411.


Matthew 5:48

Perfect (teleioi). The word comes from telos, end, goal, limit. Here it is the goal set before us, the absolute standard of our Heavenly Father. The word is used also for relative perfection as of adults compared with children.

The sermon on the mount Ch 5-7, this Ch 5 is the start of the grandest discourse of our heavenly Father by His son to us. The heavenly Perspective, is nothing like the earthly perspective. The heavenly mind is nothing like the carnal mind, The pure in heart, is nothing like the unclean in heart, the eye of faith is nothing like the eye of flesh, The ways of the lord, are unlike mans ways.

The last verse says it all concerning the well known beatitudes, and instructions we read. They are the only standard, not mans standard.

Mat 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven.....

We are to strive to be the Children of the Heavenly Father, we are to seek to be more in the image of Christ. The lord is light, we are to strive to be children of light, and to walk in the light. The heavenly perspective, has no darkness, the world does, not the lord of light. The wold has death, not so in glory, only eternal life. In the world we shed tears, in heaven we will have them wiped away. With all these stark contrasts the lord is teaching us something a Child could understand, but contains so much meat, as it takes the Holy Spirit to even be able to touch, or do any of the things said. It is the meat of the words of our Heavenly Father spoken by Jesus, Jehovah in the flesh, the divine Elohim. The full trinity with man. All of heaven is speaking, moving, praying in our lord Jesus, his word still speaks, and his voice can still be heard. Not an echo, but a real on going spoken voice.

These truths of being like God, does not mean as the Gnostic s taught, that we will become gods, little god's as Mormons teach. WOF, teaches, MSOG teaches, no, we do not become God, or little gods, but we do become the very image of his glory, re created back to the Garden of Eden before the fall. 'By one man, Adam sin entered the world, by one man the second Adam, Jesus, salvation, eternal life is given'. This is profound, we do not play God, act like God, but we are to do what his standard says, we will never in this life reach it, but we have before us the Holy Standard of a Holy God, and it shows how to be like our heavenly father, so I want to be more like the father, more of the image of his son, in this Chapter we are told a few ways, so lets take a look, that is , if this also is your life goal?

1. Mat 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.


Matthew 5:39

But I say unto you, that ye resist not the evil man - Thus; the Greek word translated resist signifies standing in battle array, striving for victory. If a man smite thee on the right cheek - Return not evil for evil: yea, turn to him the other - Rather than revenge thyself.





From G473 and G2476; to stand against, that is, oppose: - resist, withstand.

This is very straight forward, as in full battle gear, we are not to stand against, oppose, lift a finger, passivity, and the flesh hates it, our Heavenly Father does not. How do you want to be like, a man in a full metal jacket ready for revenge, or to stand down, as our Father says to? this is a hard one.

Mat 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

This is where the rubber meets the road on the battle against the flesh and having the heavenly perspective. How can we do it? We can not, but the Holy Spirit in us can give us the power to do so.

Corrie Ten Boom, the way she overcame the Nazi camp, was she learned to love her captors, she prayed for them, forgave them. Dear saint when you are hurt by someone, I mean hurt bad, abused, misused how do you do as corrie did? Prayer, faith and a deep desire to be like God, one of his true children. The disciples could not grasp this, Jesus said the lesson on 70 times 7, they simply could not understand, passivity, love , forgiveness?

If we are striving to be like our lord, we have all we need in the word. The sermon on the mount would take years of study, and a life time of application. I get so mad at myself when I fail in this area, and I do, we all do, I have been weeping over this, getting over let down, hurt, learning to pray for those, even bless those that have hurt me. I also have been weeping over the slow death of our nation, the weeping prophet has started to weep, and weeping shows growth, it shows burden, it develops the Character of the lord. Jesus wept, when we weep for others, and not just our self something profound happens, we become like our lord.

Learning to bless, love, cloth, feed those that hate us. The enemy is at the gate, and when they come, like Corrie, no matter what happens, we must love our tormentors, our captors, TPTB. That is the 70 times 7, and no one can do it apart from our lord, he gives us the ability. Paul said in Rom ch 7, 'the things that I want to do, I do not, and the things that I do , I do not want to do, O wretched man am I', but he did not stop there, he gives us the revelation is Rom Ch 8, 'therefore there is now no condemnation....'Jesus , the blood, forgiveness, it is 100% no condemnation, so why condemn yourself if you repented, why carry the past, why dwell on mistakes, if you repented its done, if our lord forgets why can we not? This also is to be like our lord, to learn to forgive others, but also to forgive our self. The flesh and the Devil are masters at self condemnation. How long will you carry that load? OK you blew it, did you repent? Than move on, forget it. It is a done deal, move forward.

Mat 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

It is a fact, the rain falls on the just and on the unjust, that seems unfair, you may think, " I am living for the lord, I am seeking only his will, with all my shortcomings, I am pursuing only the lord, it has got me no where, look at everyone else, laughing, having a good time, not a care in the world, and just living, they seem to be doing great, and I am alone, always in prayer, study, not doing things, not following the crowd, and I am miserable, so whats the use?".

This may be one of the devils biggest strategies to bring down the saints of the lord. In Mal. the prophet, the Jews were saying, “we fast, pray pay tithe, where has it got us”? They were in sin, they doubted the holiness of the lord, they felt whats the use. It is the lie of the devil, if this is not dealt with, you could fall away, and join the crowd, it is very easy, O' it will not happen over night, but day by day, one brick at a time, than a breach in the wall and last, no wall at all, slow, miserable, and UN protected, the wall has come down, the defense and sweet fellowship with the lord gone, now it is just religious observation and doing your church thing, going through religious motions like a zombie, a dead person.

This can be taken care of. It can be free from you today, do you want to be more like Jesus, do you still crave for more of the lord? That says your not done yet, you can rise from that grave, you can take off the sack cloth of legalism and put on the rob of righteousness, the robs of Joy. It only takes a decision, a prayer and you are renewed. You can change your prison cloths like Joseph, by the blood of Jesus, that will cleanse you from ALL sin, and you can again stand clothed in your right mind, and with an audience with the king, our Heavenly Father, he will embrace you, kiss you and hold you and say...”welcome home” . O saints, I pray you are getting this, I know this is for someone. I pray the lord helps you to understand we will never be perfect until we reach Glory, do not give up, not now, the hour is late, forge ahead in newness of life, stand on the word.

1Jn says, 'if we sin we have an advocate with the Father Christ Jesus, and if we confess our sin, he is faithful and just to forgive us of ALL our sin', not some, ALL. the all, is as close to being like the heavenly father that we will ever be, he can not love you more, no matter what you do, it is what you understand, it is the heavenly perspective, a different way of thinking, 100% different from the worldly mind. This is why we serve, give, worship, we are set free, we do not understand how we will even make it, but in our heavenly perspective all becomes clear, nothing matters on earth, soon we will be home, soon it will be over, soon we will be in heaven for eternity, and all we can do is strive by the lords power to be more like our heavenly father.

When we kick against the thorns we get bloody feet, no blood on our part is required, because of the blood of Jesus, who wore the crown of thorns for us. Think on this, he wore the thorns that we still refuse to let go of, he took all our sin, all our flesh and nailed it to a tree, Calvary, amazing, he wore the thorns that man still kicks against, understand , this, is the heavenly perspective, if you can grasp this, apply it, understand it, you will live a life of victory, joy and peace, even in the storms of life.
