Yeshua and the Kingdom of Heaven, teachings are found in Matthew chapters five through seven. In these chapters Yeshua outlines commandments for those listening and gives pertinent things that those who follow him should be doing. Yeshua gives hope, for instance, "Blessed are the poor in Spirit", theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Again Yeshua say "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake", theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Yeshua then continues saying "whosoever there shall break one of the least of these commandments and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven.”
Now that hurts doesn't it? Yeshua commands us therefore this way saying "whosoever shall do and teach them [commandments] the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven". It is not a bit of a stretch to say the church today doesn't like the word commandments and for centuries the truth of keeping commandments has been hidden. But Yeshua says it here, "keep the commandments", and teach others, if you do; you will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Here is where the westernized Christian church and many American Christians need to pay attention. Now while we spend most of our time reckoning why we should not keep any commandments, Yeshua tells us plainly we need to. In these chapters we find these and much more. Join us as we enter into the teachings and the word Yeshua gives to us in these important chapters in Matthew.
