According to the Parable of “The Cost of Being a Disciple”, Christ Jesus taught the Holiness of Apostles’ Mission consisting in a Highly Spiritual Ascension permitting to the them to see God: Christ Jesus and to see Him is to have in the terrestrial life a response demonstrating the True Vision, since the Apostles seeing Christ Jesus and living in Comm-union- with Him confronting in their lives the same adversities and opponents.
Therefore, the True Apostles of Christ Jesus confronting the hypocrisy of the Scribes and the Pharisee of the actual time: the criminals called chief priests, popes, nuns, cardinals, imams, bishops, sheikh etc… since there is a deep rejection of the Light coming from the representatives of the devil swimming in the darkness, so, because of their horrible crimes, they rejecting the Religion illustrated by the Holy Spirit since It is enabled by God the Father from the beginning to put the light on the track of darkness and to see clearly the several crimes perpetrate by these historical enemies of Christ Jesus and of His Apostles.
Thus Christ Jesus talking about the Cost to be a Disciple in the sense of the obedience to His Commandments through Loving Him with all the heart and all the soul and all the mind and this Holy Love enlightening the Spirits of the Apostles showing them the Path of Truth even it’s difficult and necessitating to renounce to the earthly family to follow only Christ Jesus, the Redeemer, however, through God’s love the Apostles choosing the narrow way with the deep conviction that Christ Jesus is all that they needing and they belonging only to Him from the beginning.
So when Christ Jesus saying: “ If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters yes even his own life he cannot be my disciple. And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me can not be my disciple.” Is to explain that the greater love in Apostle’s hearts is Christ Jesus’ Love, thus it’s not an invitation to hate his own but it’s just to argue that the Apostles are called from the beginning by God the Father to follow Him to have as consequence Life and Life in abundance, therefore, the Apostles are Christ Jesus’ Own, they are His Family since they having the same Father: God the Father that’s why in Matthew 12: 46-50 Christ Jesus affirming this Truth:
“Jesus’ Mother and Brothers
46 While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. 47 Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.”
48 He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who my brothers are?” 49 Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. 50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
Furthermore, it’s clear that the renouncement to worldly attachments is not to hate others since Love is in the heart of Christ Jesus’ Teachings but is to love chiefly God and to love God is to hate the world because the Apostles don’t belonging to it.
Further, God’s Love is to be able to do good deeds as the fruits of the Holy Spirit and in another hand to be incapable to do wicked acts thus the Apostles living in comm-union- with Christ Jesus don’t commit crimes jeopardizing their souls.
As a result, to have the Word of God as the Eternal daily Bread of Life is to understand the wise teachings of Christ Jesus, and to further develop the Knowledge of Christ Jesus is to understand that when He evocating the notion of hate it is not in an earthly sense but since the Word of God is the Source of the Religion, the interpretation have to be a spiritual one, since the hate with an earthly meaning is not a spiritual notion but a criminal acts perpetrate by hateful persons capable to persecute curse slander even to kill because they are simply devil’s children following criminal sects since the followers of the evil can’t never understand the Teachings coming from the Heavenly Kingdom therefore, they can’t produce good fruits and the abominable crimes are their only acts.
And this Holy Truth is clearly explained in the Parable of the Sower :
18 “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19 when anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. 20 The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble´-or-persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 22 The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. 23 But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty´-or-thirty times what was sown.”
Therefore, to be enabled by the Holy Spirit to understand Christ Jesus’ Teachings is to be crowned by a Holy Crown of the Apostleship permitting to the Apostles to demonstrate the Way of Light through their own life retracing the Path taken by their Only Master: Christ Jesus.
And the Apostleship’s Crown is costly since it enabled the Apostles to see that to renounce freely to the damned world is not a sacrifice but a great Blessedness demonstrating through the Holiest True Miracle consisting in “the Word Became Flesh” since the meanings of trials and persecutions in Apostles’ life is found in the Gospel as the Cost to be a member of Christ Jesus Family predestined from the beginning to be His Own and this Truth is wisely explained in the Parable of “ The Cost of Being a Disciple” :
28 “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? 29 For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, 30 saying, ‘this person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’
31 “Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Won’t he first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand? 32 If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of peace. 33 In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.
34 “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? 35 It is fit neither for the soil nor for the manure pile-;- it is thrown out.
“Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”
