Bible4 “It cannot be, but that offences will come”

The proper way to confront offences is head on. Offences work for you. They are part of the Plan of GOD. They are opportunities. They work for GOD. You do not work for them. You owe them no special treatment. And they come from Satan.

The Annunciation of Luke the Evangelist – Chapter 17

܀ ܠܘܩܐ ܀

1 And Jesus said to his disciples:
It cannot be, but that offences will come:
but woe to him, by whom they come.

2 Better for him were it, if a millstone were suspended to his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to stumble.

3 Take heed to yourselves. If thy brother transgress, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

4 And if he shall offend against thee seven times in a day, and, seven times in a day, shall turn himself to thee, and say, I repent; forgive him.

5 And the Legates said to our Lord: Increase our faith.

6 He said to them:
If ye had faith like a grain of mustard seed, ye might say to this mulberry-tree, Be thou torn up by the roots, and be thou planted in the sea; and it would obey you.

7 Which of you, having a servant driving a yoke of oxen, or tending sheep, will say to him when he cometh from the field, Pass on at once, and recline for supper?

8 But he will say to him:
Prepare for me what I may sup upon, and gird thy loins and serve me, until I have eaten and drunken; and afterwards thou shalt eat and drink.

9 Hath he thanks for him, because the servant did what was commanded him? I think not.

10 So also ye, when ye have done all the things commanded you, say:
We are unprofitable servants, for we have done only what we were obligated to do.

11 And it occurred as Jesus advanced towards Jerusalem, that he passed among the Samaritans into Galilee.

12 And when he drew near to enter a certain village, there met him ten leprous men; and they stood at a distance,

13 and raised their voice, and said:
Our Rabbi, Jesus, have compassion upon us.

14 And when he had looked upon them, he said to them:
Go, show yourselves to the priests.
And as they were going, they were cleansed.

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was cleansed, returned, and with a loud voice, glorified God.

16 And he fell on his face, at the feet of Jesus, and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan.

17 And Jesus answered, and said:
Were they not ten who were cleansed? Where are the nine?

18 Have they so gone as not to come and give glory to God; except this one, who is of another nation ?

19 And he said to him;
Arise, and go:
thy faith hath given thee life.

20 And as [some] of the Pharisees asked him, When the kingdom of God would come; he answered, and said to them:
The kingdom of God will not come with observables.

21 And they will not say:
Behold, here it is! or, Behold, it is there! For lo, the kingdom of God is within you

22 And he said to his disciples:
The days will come, when ye will long to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye will not see [them].

23 And if they shall say to you:
Lo, here he is! or, Lo, there he is! go not forth.

24 For, as the lightning darteth from the heavens, and illuminateth all beneath the heavens; so will the Son of man be, in his day.

25 But, previously, he is to suffer many things, and to be rejected by this generation.

26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of man.

27 They ate and drank, they took wives and were given to husbands, until the day that Noah entered the ark; and the flood came, and destroyed every one.

28 And again, as it was in the days of Lot; they ate and drank, bought and sold, planted and built.

29 But in the day that Lot went out of Sodom, the Lord rained fire and sulphur from heaven, and destroyed them all.

30 Thus will it be, in the day when the Son of man shall be revealed.

31 In that day, let him that is on the house-top, and his goods in the house, not come down to take them:
and let him that is in the field, not return [after what is] behind him.

32 Remember Lot’s wife.

33 He that desireth to preserve his life, will lose it; and he that will lose his life, shall preserve it.

34 I tell you, that, in that night, two will be in one bed; one will be taken, and the other left.

35 And two females will be grinding together; one will be taken, and the other left.

36 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken, and the other left.

37 They answered, and said to him:
Whither, our Lord? He said to them:
Where the body is, there will the eagles assemble themselves.

Baruch 4 KJVA
1 This is the book of the commandments of God, and the law that endureth for ever: all they that keep it shall come to life; but such as leave it shall die.
2 Turn thee, O Jacob, and take hold of it: walk in the presence of the light thereof, that thou mayest be illuminated.
3 Give not thine honour to another, nor the things that are profitable unto thee to a strange nation.
4 O Israel, happy are we: for things that are pleasing to God are made known unto us.
5 Be of good cheer, my people, the memorial of Israel.
6 Ye were sold to the nations, not for your destruction: but because ye moved God to wrath, ye were delivered unto the enemies.
7 For ye provoked him that made you by sacrificing unto devils, and not to God.
8 Ye have forgotten the everlasting God, that brought you up; and ye have grieved Jerusalem, that nursed you.
9 For when she saw the wrath of God coming upon you, she said, Hearken, O ye that dwell about Sion: God hath brought upon me great mourning;
10 For I saw the captivity of my sons and daughters, which the Everlasting brought upon them.
11 With joy did I nourish them; but sent them away with weeping and mourning.
12 Let no man rejoice over me, a widow, and forsaken of many, who for the sins of my children am left desolate; because they departed from the law of God.
13 They knew not his statutes, nor walked in the ways of his commandments, nor trod in the paths of discipline in his righteousness.
14 Let them that dwell about Sion come, and remember ye the captivity of my sons and daughters, which the Everlasting hath brought upon them.
15 For he hath brought a nation upon them from far, a shameless nation, and of a strange language, who neither reverenced old man, nor pitied child.
16 These have carried away the dear beloved children of the widow, and left her that was alone desolate without daughters.
17 But what can I help you?
18 For he that brought these plagues upon you will deliver you from the hands of your enemies.
19 Go your way, O my children, go your way: for I am left desolate.
20 I have put off the clothing of peace, and put upon me the sackcloth of my prayer: I will cry unto the Everlasting in my days.
21 Be of good cheer, O my children, cry unto the Lord, and he will deliver you from the power and hand of the enemies.
22 For my hope is in the Everlasting, that he will save you; and joy is come unto me from the Holy One, because of the mercy which shall soon come unto you from the Everlasting our Saviour.
23 For I sent you out with mourning and weeping: but God will give you to me again with joy and gladness for ever.
24 Like as now the neighbours of Sion have seen your captivity: so shall they see shortly your salvation from our God which shall come upon you with great glory, and brightness of the Everlasting. 25 My children, suffer patiently the wrath that is come upon you from God: for thine enemy hath persecuted thee; but shortly thou shalt see his destruction, and shalt tread upon his neck.
26 My delicate ones have gone rough ways, and were taken away as a flock caught of the enemies.
27 Be of good comfort, O my children, and cry unto God: for ye shall be remembered of him that brought these things upon you.
28 For as it was your mind to go astray from God: so, being returned, seek him ten times more.
29 For he that hath brought these plagues upon you shall bring you everlasting joy with your salvation.
30 Take a good heart, O Jerusalem: for he that gave thee that name will comfort thee.
31 Miserable are they that afflicted thee, and rejoiced at thy fall.
32 Miserable are the cities which thy children served: miserable is she that received thy sons.
33 For as she rejoiced at thy ruin, and was glad of thy fall: so shall she be grieved for her own desolation.
34 For I will take away the rejoicing of her great multitude, and her pride shall be turned into mourning.
35 For fire shall come upon her from the Everlasting, long to endure; and she shall be inhabited of devils for a great time.
36 O Jerusalem, look about thee toward the east, and behold the joy that cometh unto thee from God.
37 Lo, thy sons come, whom thou sentest away, they come gathered together from the east to the west by the word of the Holy One, rejoicing in the glory of God.
