After Jesus taught what we now call The Sermon on the Mount, Matthew recorded in chapter 7:

28 And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching,

29 for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

And in Matthew chapter 13:

53 Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there.

54 When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works?

55 Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas?

56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?”

57 So they were offended at Him.

When the mature Sons and Daughters are revealed by walking in FATHER’S full power and authority, people will once again be astonished.  Some will embrace the ministry of the Remnant while others will be offended and reject the Sons and Daughters because of their unbelief.  Don’t be surprised when this rejection occurs for people want to live in the past and base their current beliefs with past perceptions.  Even the disciples were astonished at Jesus’ teachings as He spoke in Matthew chapter 19:

23 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.

24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

25 When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”

26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

FATHER is not restricted to our past when HE empowers us in the “now”.  We only need to look at the disciples before and after the cross to see that FATHER is able to empower anyone, no matter what their previous beliefs would suggest.  FATHER has hidden HIS remnant among the people and HE will empower those who were designated for HIS purpose when HE formed them in the womb.  The Blood of Jesus has sufficient power to erase our past mistakes and make us fully righteous in order for us to carry out FATHER’S purpose.  In Matthew chapter 22, Jesus spoke:

29 Jesus answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.

30 For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven.

31 But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying,

32 ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’ ?  God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.”

33 And when the multitudes heard this, they were astonished at His teaching.

Currently, most people do not comprehend the power of Our Heavenly Father and are trusting in man’s doctrines and the ways of the world.  I expect this to change soon as FATHER moves the Remnant toward full maturity while exposing those who are imposters and attempting to mislead the flock.  Those who have been fleecing the flock will be appropriately judged by FATHER and many will be astonished when this occurs.  Expect the unexpected!
