Peace and grace in the
love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Luke 11: 37-54 is about 'Woe
to the Pharisees and Lawyers'
Pharisees and Lawyers only prioritize the physical thing in their
ministry and do not prioritze the true teaching word.
they are fulminated by God with six times of 'woe'.
to you lawyers! For you have taken away
the key of knowledge. You did not
enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you
The Pharisess takes
away the key of knowledge (the one of heaven) but they
do not enter in themselves, and those who are entering in they
knowlegde about the heaven is higher than all knowledges in the
All knowledges in the world can be
reached by human's mind, but the one of heaven cannot.
faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things

obtained a good testimony
faith we understand that the worlds
were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen
were not made of things which are visible.
is the key of all knowledges, both the one in
the world and heaven.
As long as we have
faith, God is able to help us.
Pharisees and Laywers have faith but they do not want to enter the
kingdom of heaven. It is the same as faith
What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but
does not have works? Can faith save him?
and one of you says to them, "Depart in peace, be warmed and
filled," but you do not give them the things which are needed
for the body, what does it profit?
2:17. Thus also faith by
itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
2:18. But someone will
say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith
without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons
2:20. But do you want to know, O foolish
man, that faith without works is
14: faith with works cannot be separated; we have faith first, and
then its work.
Verse 20: 'faith without
works is dead'= dead faith. It is useless and
unable to save.
Faith without works is the same as the
one of Satan. It means that one
believes and ministers

Consequently, he becomes the
stumbling-block for others. He does not enter in himself, those who
are entering he hinders.

- The right faith.
then faith comes by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God.

process is as follows:
For with the heart one believes, and with the mouth
confession is made= if we believe in Jesus, we can confess Him. It
means that we confess our sin to God and other. Do not sin anymore
after being forgiven! The heart is the store of unclean, evil, and
- Holy Spirit helps us
hear the word earnestly.
- Holy Spirit helps us
understand the word.
- Holy Spirit helps us believe in the word.
word becomes faith in our heart, so we can
trust in Jesus.
The right faith brings
us to live in righteousness, and all sins are cast away.
As a result, God blesses us.
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, But righteousness
delivers from death.
The LORD will not allow the righteous soul to famish, But He casts
away the desire of the wicked.
in righteousness is the same as being saved and blessed.
We live in righteousness first, then God will bless us. All
punishments are borne by Jesus on the cross, and He blesses us.
one has yearning to experience the freedom from sin, it is the sign
of the right faith. Otherwise, he comes to God for physical things
If we have faith, the word will become the brake in our
life, so we do not sin anymore but being
saved and blessed.
If we persevere
in hearing the word, our faith will increase, and sin decreases,
so the blessing increases and the salvation becomes more assured
up to being
If we do
not persevere in hearing the word, our
faith will decrease, and the sin increases.

- Keeping living in
- Ministering to God faithfully and fervently.
- Keeping believing and hoping God no matter
anything that happens.
- We are used in the
revival of Holy Spirit or the building of the perfect body of

the Israelites to Canaan.

Israelites and Gentiles become one perfect body.

do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is
2:21. Was not Abraham our father
justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?
Do you see that faith was working
together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?
with works means the practiced one.
It is the same as obeying God
until the flesh does not sound
Becoming obedient until the
flesh does not sound anymore is the same as stretching our our hands
to God, and He will stretch out His hands of great mercy to us to
open the door of heaven.
It is the key of knowledge.
everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of
heaven, but he who does the will of My
Father in heaven.
the door of heaven means as follows:
- God's hand of great
mercy is able to open the door in the world. He gives the
way out from all of impossible problems.
- The door of
beautiful and successful future.
- The door of
purification and renewal of life
up to perfection. We do not stumble in word. It means that our deed
is only the work of faith. We are worthy to greet Jesus when He
comes a second time, and we just cry out: Alleluia!
enter the marriage supper of the Lamb of God, Paradise, and kingdom
of heaven forever.
