GOD LIVES IN YOU

God is IN you, WITH you and FOR you.
“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another”.{1 John 4:4-11 }

THEREFORE, as Romans 8 tells us :
” There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
[ Romans 8:1,11-11,31, 35-39 ]

COME ON children of God,
•Let’s not focus so much on the wrong that others do to us, but instead let’s focus more on loving them with the Love of God and doing them rightly by the Word of God.
Romans 12:19
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance  is mine; I will repay, says the Lord.
Matthew 5:44 says,
“But I say unto you, LOVE your enemies, BLESS them that curse you, DO GOOD to them that hate you, and PRAY for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. That all of you may be the children of your Father which is in heaven…”

REMEMBER:
” I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me”.
{Galatians 2:20 }

FINALLY:
” I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”.
[Romans 12:1-2 ]

+Always let the Word of God be the standard for your life. Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be the glory.

EXHORTATIONS to CHRISTIANS

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.{Romans 12:1-3 }.

Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.” And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
{I Peter 1:13-19 }.

And you shall be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine.{Leviticus 20:26}

Jude, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, To those who are called, sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ: Mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh. Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen. {Jude 1:1-2, 14-25 }

YOU CAN’T SAVE YOUR SELF

It’s so sad ,when people actually think, that the good things they do,will get them into heaven,while others think that they can outsmart God,with their masters,and doctorate degrees. But God wants you to know, that you can only be saved,by His grace and mercy, here is what He said:
“And you He  made  alive,  who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it  is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them”.{Ephesians 2:1-10}
So His suggestion is :
” I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”.
{Romans 12:1-2}

Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
I Thessalonians 5:23-24, 28

WRONG CHOICES

Have you ever make decisions in your life that you later regret, you just wish you could see the future, or read someones mind, even just a glimpse of the intents, contents, and desires of their hearts. But, would it have really made a difference, because sometimes,if not all the times we see the writing on the wall, or signs that this will not work, yet we ignore it, and do our own thing. Most of us spend all our lives trying to fix broken things, yet failing to realize that if God is not the glue that will hold it together, then you are wasting your time. However,if we just do as God suggest in Proverbs 3:5-8
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones”. Because He knows the hearts of people as Jeremiah 17:9-10 says,
“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, the Lord , search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.

It’s amazing, how many times the devil leads us to think that our looks, money, or body will change a person, failing again to see that if God is not the catalyst for change, you might as well give up, because every opportunity the devil gets, he is going to shred it like paper.

The beauty about a child of God in situations like these,is that God promise never to leave or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5), and a whole lot more,but child of God; Listen, if you don’t know Gods promises how are you going to overcome the struggles,fights,trials,and tribulation that the enemy is throwing at you. How can you go to war without weapons,you can’t go in a boxing ring to fight without arms, so, how do you expect to defeat the devil without the word of God planted in you,without the Holy Spirit residing in you,without even accepting Gods gift of His son Jesus Christ,without living Holy and righteous,without presenting your body as a living sacrifice,holy and acceptable unto God,which is your reasonable service;and be not conformed to this world,but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,that you may prove what is that good,acceptable,and perfect will of God ( Romans 12:1-2). Now you tell me,how do you expect God to clean up your mess,your problem,your trials, if you are not serving Him? Does that, even make sence to you?Let me tell you something if you are not living right,having sex out of marriage,lying,stealing,cheating,etc.etc.you might as well stop praying;because it is written:”The effectual,fervent prayers of the righteous availed much” ( James 5:16).”For the eyes of the Lord, are over the righteous,and His ears are open unto their prayers”      ( 1 Peter 3:12).Well I am not going to belabor the point you got the message,God takes care of those who seek,love,and live for Him in all aspect of their lives. If for whatever reason you don’t know God or His only begotten son,Jesus Christ,go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,then follow the instructions,it will be the best choice you ever make,drop me a note if you need help,connecting with the right people or getting help knowing Christ Jesus. I sincerely give God the glory,praise,honor,and thanks for using me to get His message to His children,I pray it bless you as it did me,and you will obey His will and ways or commands.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ETERNITY

Can you handle the truth about yourself, can you just be honest with yourself, you don’t need no psychiatrist to psychoanalyst your thoughts on this one. But, who do you belong to? Which god are you serving ? Which one do you obey?  It’s no secret, you can tell who belongs to the God of the universe, the omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient one; and who belongs to the god of this world. In life there are choices you have to give up something or someone, to gain something or someone, in this case you have to give the devil up, and choose God, you have to give up the devils lifestyle, and choose Gods.

God knows who belongs to Him, and who don’t. It’s just plain, simple, and straight forward folks, whosoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, and if you don’t love your brother you are not of God, and if you can’t love your neighbor, as yourself then you are not of God(1 John 3:10-24). You don’t need no brain surgeon, geek, or physiologist to tell you this, just look in a book called the Holy Bible, and it will explain it to you. This is the book that the devil, his children, and his followers hate so much, that they refute, change, and fight against everything in it, right down to the paper it’s written on.

The reason they hate the Bible so much is because, it reveals the truth, and exposes evil. But, no matter  how they try to dispute and refute it, it still remains, and reveals Gods will, purpose, prophesies, and plans for His children. You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free. God gave us the truth in His only begotten son Jesus Christ (John 14:6 ,   John 8:32). Now if you have a problem with that take it up with God, but it’s a no win situation, ask the devil he lost that battle years ago now, he wants you, to go to hell with him.

Friends, only through Jesus Christ you will find true happiness, love, joy, and peace, because He is the way the truth, and everlasting life. God gave us His only son, out of love for us, so He could show us the way, teach us the way, and be the way. Behold what manner of love our Heavenly Father has bestowed upon us that we should be called children of God, that’s good news ( 1 John 3:1).

Gods requirements for eternal life is simple:

1. Accepting His son, Jesus Christ.

2. Believing that Jesus is the way, truth, and life.

Beloved if our hearts condemn us not, then have we confidence towards God, and whatever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight ( 1 John 3:21-22). If you want God and His son in your life go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make in your life. I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message to you, may His love lead you to live for Him, now and forever, in Jesus Name ,amen.
