3)   Blessed 

       [to a state beyond need, having the promise of 
        fulfillment and satisfaction]

5)   Blessed

          on account of - for the sake or because of
          Justice - Righteousness,
          that of them is the Kingdom of Heaven
         [Note: this verse implies that the Kingdom of Heaven 
          is within those being persecuted, (cf. Luke 17:20-21)
          and that the persecution of the true believers into Christ Jesus 
          is mislabeled as justice or righteousness by the world or 
          its system of order to persecute them.]

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.   (KJV)     

11)   You are blessed 

       [to a state beyond need, having the promise of 
        fulfillment and satisfaction]

       when they  reproach - defame - rail (upon)

       and shall say   all - every 
       evil - grievously wicked - vile - sorrowfully painful and ill
       word - saying - statement - utterance - speech
       against you,
       lying - speaking deceitfully or falsely
       on account of - for the sake or because of      Me.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.   (KJV)

12)   Rejoice with gladness, 
        and leap and skip in joyful exultation,
        because your wage - your reward
        (are) many in Heaven.

         For - Because  in this manner,
         they followed after and pursued - they persecuted
         the prophets who (were) before you.

  John 1:12 states:  
        "As many as, then, 
         took and seized - laid hold of - received   Him,
         He of His own good will and accord gave   to them
         mighty permission - rightful authority - the power to do or not do
         to become children - sons and daughters   of GOD, 
         to those trusting - believing into His Name."

    The world system and those of its own who have infiltrated the Church teach contrary to the Scriptures and make the false or lying claim that we are all GOD's children.  GOD directly contradicts that lying claim that we are somehow "all" GOD's Chidren (so as to perhaps justify their sins and blame GOD for them) in His Holy Book, the Bible.   Jesus, who is the WORD of GOD, especially rebukes those who pretend such lies in the Gospel of John in 8:41-47, as I have previously shared.

41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.   (KJV)        

41)    You  do - make - perform - cause - bring about 
          the work performances of the father of you.'

          Accordingly - Therefore,  they said to Him,

               'We certainly  were not  born - begotten
                out of fornication - out of sexual sin
[out of having sex outside the husband and wife
                  marraige relationship].
                 One father we have - hold - possess and continue 
                 to have - hold - possess:  GOD.'

42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.     (KJV)        

42)    Jesus - Yeshua  said to them,
              'If (hypothetically)  GOD was your Father,
               you would unquestioningly and without precondition,
               with compassion and duty,  
               love Me  now - at this (present) time;
               for I, out of GOD,  proceeded from and went forth,
               and have come to be here.

               Because certainly not from Myself 

               I have come forth (so as to make a public appearance),
               but that one there sent Me forth out.

43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.    (KJV)  

43)    Through which or what (part of)   the speech of Mine
          do you certainly not know and perceivingly understand
          because you are not able, nor capable, nor empowered 
          to listen intently and hear the intelligent word (of) Mine 
          (that which belongs to and proceeds from Me)?

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.    (KJV)   

44)    You are   out of / from   (your) father, 
          the Devil  / he casting or throwing (false accusations) through;
          and the longings and strong desires of the mind 
          of the father of you 
           you willingly wish - desire - intend - are pleased
           to  do - make - perform - cause - bring about.

           That one there was homicidal - was a murderer

            from (the) Beginning - from (the) First Cause;

  [Note: in regard to events at "The Beginning", this verse appears to refer to events in Genesis Chapter 3.   -- Brianroy]

            and in the Truth - and in the True Reality (as it really is)

            has certainly not stood - has certainly not established nor
            because the Truth is certainly not in him.

             Whensoever he randomly speaks the falsehood - the lie,

             out of his own (privately and apart from others) 
             he speaks,
             because he is a liar, and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.   (KJV) 

45)    Then, because I lay down definite words and speak
          the Truth - the True Reality (as it really is),
          you certainly do not believe - you certainly do not trust 

46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?   (KJV)          

46)    Who out of you shames - disgraces - provingly convicts
          Me (as in the wrong)  round about - concerning 
          sin - a guilty offense?

          Then, perhaps if  I lay down definite words and speak

          the Truth - the True Reality (as it really is),
          through which or what (part)
          do you certainly not believe - trust  Me?

47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.   (KJV)    

47)    He being out of GOD hears and listens intently to
          the speech - statements - discourse   of GOD 
 [as uttered and taught by a living voice].

          Through this,  you certainly do not listen intently nor hear,

           because you are certainly not  out of - out from  GOD.'

Then we have 1 John 3:1-2, 7-10 which states in the King James Version, thus: 
1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

And the Apostle Paul  demonstrates in 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 how that we are invited and called (still having free will and free choice) to come out from among unbelievers and idolaters as alien peoples to us, attempting to drag us down in their ignorance and filth, and to live separate (implying something as basic as separate living quarters or dwelling places from them)  as sons and daughters of  the Living GOD, apart from the temporarily living dead ones obsessed with idols and darkness, they being socially and spiritually dealt with as those of a different family than we who believe into Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 (KJV)
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

That's my input.
