Blessed Are Those Who Mourn
Transcript of Blessed Are Those Who Mourn
blessed are the poor in spirit...
"We are here in order to set what has happened, and our Matthias and we ourselves who would love so much to call his name again, in the comforting and liberating light of God’s Word."
blessed are those who mourn...
"Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied. "Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. …But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation. …Woe to you who are full now, for you shall be hungry. "Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep."
Luke 6:21, 24, 25
"No; it was none of these. Rather, as Dinur explained to Wallace, all at once he realized Eichmann was not the godlike army officer who had sent so many to their deaths. This Eichmann was an ordinary man. ‘I was afraid about myself,’ said Dinur. ‘I saw that I am capable to do this. I am…exactly like he.’
Wallace’s subsequent summation of Dinur’s terrible discovery—‘Eichmann is in all of us’—is a horrifying statement; but it indeed captures the central truth about man’s nature. For as a result of the Fall, sin is in each of us—not just the susceptibility to sin, but sin itself."
"How does one…become ‘poor in spirit’? The answer is that you do not look at yourself or begin by trying to do things to yourself. …Look at Him; and the more we look at Him, the more hopeless shall we feel by ourselves, and in and of ourselves, and the more shall we become ‘poor in spirit’. Look at Him, keep looking at Him. Look at the saints, look at the men who have been most filled with the Spirit and used. But above all, look again at Him, and then you will have nothing to do to yourself. It will be done. You cannot truly look at Him without feeling your absolute poverty, and emptiness."
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not!"
"And the LORD said to him, "Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it."
"The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn."
