Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. Matthew 23:23
There are many people who do everything their spiritual guide tells them to do, such as: pay tithes, give offerings, evangelize, faithfully attend meetings, etc. However, they do not understand and omit the Word of God. They are unrighteous, steal, lie and betray each other.
The Lord Jesus rebuked the Pharisees because they did not live what they preached. They offered tithes and offerings in the Temple, but did not follow or practice the Law of God; on the contrary, they neglected the most important principles:
Justice – represents God, but so-called “Christians” ignore it. They do not fear God, they do not deny their own will, and they like to judge God’s servants by hurting them and killing them with accusatory, jealous words, and so, out of shame, they are distanced from the Holy Spirit.
Mercy – represented by Jesus, who gave His life to save all those who believe in Him. It is necessary to have it also, because those who reject it have no compassion for the souls that suffer in the dark, without knowing the purposes of God.
Faith – representing the Holy Spirit, is given to all and, especially, to those who believe in Him. Whoever does not have faith, cannot live or pass forward the Power the Holy Spirit grants each person. And, when the Power of God is not present, people are not encouraged to manifest their faith, which results in pain and chaos in their life.
In Galilee, while sitting on the grass, Jesus taught these things with patience to the people. He said to them:
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled – Justice.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy – Mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God – Faith. Matthew 5:6-8
Thousands of years before Jesus came as a Man to the world, God said:
Have you considered My servant Job?… a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil. Job 1:8
Since then, He continues to show His will so that we may obtain and live in Justice, Mercy, and Faith. His Trinity in us.
