About Tartuffe, the selfish hypocrite! “Do you know Tartuffe?” the shepherd asked Benjamin. “No, is that a residence?” The shepherd smiled and began his explanation…

Shalom! In the night of April 12th, 2012, Benjamin Cousijnsen received a vision of the Lord, which he’d like to share with you.
Benjamin, wake up! I woke up in this field with olive trees…
The angel pointed in a direction: Go there, said the angel, straight ahead. I see you in a bit!
‘Where am I?’ I wondered. And when I came from this field, a shepherd came towards me with a lot of sheep, that almost pushed me away, and ensured that I almost fell also.
Then the shepherd said to me, I am your guide.
The shepherd took his sheep in the pasture… I told him that the angel had said: I see you in a bit. I really didn’t expect that a shepherd came to me, but I had rather expected that the angel was waiting for me there. Then that shepherd said: Isn’t the good Shepherd important enough, Benjamin?
Do you know Tartuffe?
“Never heard of it”, I said. ‘Is this a residence?’ I thought to myself.
No, he said. He was a hero, like quite a few children of God. This Tartuffe often played drama as one of the best. He also brought his religion. He once walked around everywhere, and was so selfish and greedy! Everywhere, he said and he came to tell that he was fasting, while he was a hypocrite, and drew a hypocritical face, and locked himself in his room, and went nicely to dinner with wine.
The Lord said: I tell this, Benjamin, to make this clear to you, that every Christian should sincerely love God, without even trying to be devoutly.
Benjamin, a true prayer always comes from your heart. Then that hero shows that he is really a hero! But many enjoy making theater for God. Many churches are likewise, and they’re not getting loose from the spirit of selfishness. This is an evil spirit, said the Lord. One who praises himself into heaven, will see hell. Let them deal with impressing God, and repent.
Benjamin, I see, I see what you do not see. I would almost say, What seest thou? But he said: I see everything!
Someone who thinks to be better than his neighbor, must take a good checkup.
These must truly repent, and let them blow their dust off their Bible, and once ponder Luke 18, and Matthew, spoke the Lord; the Lord gave these texts.
Benjamin, the angel is waiting for you, just go and pass on My words!
Moments later I came back into the field, and yes, there was the angel. And I saw him and he brought me back home. The texts, which the Lord gave me, will now be read to you. This is Luke 18 and Matthew 6. I’ll start with Luke 18:
The Parable of the Persistent Widow
Luke 18:1-8 And He also spoke a parable to them to teach it is always right to pray, and not to faint, saying, A certain judge was in a certain city, not fearing God, nor respecting man. And a widow was in that city. And she came to him, saying, Avenge me of my adversary. And he would not do so for a time. But afterward he said within himself, Though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her, that she not wear me down in the end. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge says. And shall not God avenge His own elect who cry day and night to Him, though He has been long-suffering over them? I say to you that He will avenge them speedily. Yet, when the Son of Man comes, shall He find faith on the earth?
The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector
Luke 18:9-14 And He spoke this parable to certain ones who trusted in themselves, that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a tax-collector. The Pharisee stood and prayed within himself in this way: God, I thank You that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax-collector. I fast twice on the Sabbath, I give tithes of all that I possess. And standing afar off, the tax-collector would not even lift up his eyes to Heaven, but struck on his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner! I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself shall be abased, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted.
Jesus blesses the children
Luke 18:15-17 And they also brought infants to Him, that He might touch them. But when the disciples saw, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them and said, Allow the little children to come to Me, and forbid them not. For of such is the kingdom of God. Truly I say to you, Whoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no way enter into it.
The Rich and the Kingdom of God
Luke 18:18-27 And a certain ruler asked Him, saying, Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? And Jesus said to him, Why do you call Me good? None is good except One, God. You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not kill, do not steal, do not bear false witness, honor your father and your mother. And he said, I have kept all these from my youth up. And when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, Yet you lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven. And come, follow Me. And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful, for he was very rich. And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, He said, How hardly those having riches shall enter into the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye than for a rich one to enter into the kingdom of God. And the ones who heard, said, And who can be saved? And He said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
The reward for following Jesus
Luke 18:28-30 And Peter said, Lo, we have left all and have followed You. And He said to them, Truly I say to you, There is no one who has left house, or parents, or brothers, or wife, or children for the sake of the kingdom of God, who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and, in the world to come everlasting life.
Jesus Predicts His Death a Third Time
Luke 18:31-34 And He took the Twelve and said to them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem and all things that are written by the Prophets, concerning the Son of Man, will be accomplished. For He will be delivered to the nations and will be mocked and insulted and spat on. And they will scourge Him and put Him to death, and the third day He will rise again. And they did not understand any of these things. And this saying was hidden from them, nor did they know the things which were spoken.
A Blind Beggar Receives His Sight
Luke 18:35-43 And as He came near Jericho, it happened that a certain blind man sat by the roadside begging. And hearing the crowd pass by, he asked what it meant. And they told him that Jesus of Nazareth passed by. And he cried, saying, Jesus, Son of David! Have mercy on me. And they who were in front rebuked him that he should be quiet. But he cried so much the more, Son of David! Have mercy on me. And Jesus stood and commanded him to be brought to Him. And when he had come near, He asked him, saying, What do you desire that I should do to you? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. And Jesus said to him, Receive your sight! Your faith has saved you. And immediately he received his sight and followed him, glorifying God. And when they saw, all the people gave praise to God.
Matthew 6:1-4 Take heed that you do not do your merciful deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward with your Father in Heaven. Therefore when you do your merciful deeds, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may have glory from men. Truly I say to you, They have their reward. But when you do merciful deeds, do not let your left hand know what your right hand does, so that your merciful deeds may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret, Himself shall reward you openly.
Matthew 6:5-15 And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, They have their reward. But you, when you pray, enter into your room. And shutting your door, pray to your Father in secret; and your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly. But when you pray, do not babble vain words, as the nations. For they think that in their much speaking they shall be heard. Therefore do not be like them, for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask Him. Therefore pray in this way:
Our Father, who is in Heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we also forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil. For Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Matthew 6:16-18 And when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, of a sad face. For they disfigure their faces, so that they may appear to men to fast. Truly I say to you, They have their reward. But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you do not appear to men to fast, but to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret, shall reward you openly.
Treasures in Heaven
Matthew 6:19-24 Do not lay up treasures on earth for yourselves, where moth and rust corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up treasures in Heaven for yourselves, where neither moth nor rust corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye. Therefore if your eye is sound, your whole body shall be full of light. But if your eye is evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! No one can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Do not worry
Matthew 6:25-34 Therefore I say to you, Do not be anxious for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor for your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Behold the birds of the air; for they sow not, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns. Yet your heavenly Father feeds them; are you not much better than they are? Which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his stature? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They do not toil, nor do they spin, but I say to you that even Solomon in his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Therefore if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much rather clothe you, little-faiths? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, With what shall we be clothed? For the nations seek after all these things. For your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow; for tomorrow shall be anxious for its own things. Sufficient to the day is the evil of it.
