The way of the CROSS is the way to ETERNAL LIFE.

“The [WAY OF LIFE IS ABOVE] to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath” (Proverbs 15:24).

“[FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON], that whosoever [BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]. [FOR GOD SENT] not [HIS SON] into the world to condemn the world; but [THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED]” (John 3:16-17).

“[FOR THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS] is to them that perish foolishness; but [UNTO US WHICH ARE SAVED IT IS THE POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 1:19).

“[NO MAN HATH SEEN] God at any time; the [ONLY BEGOTTEN SON], which is in the bosom of the [FATHER], he hath declared him” (John 1:18).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and [FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have [ETERNAL LIFE]: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not [COME TO ME, THAT YE MIGHT HAVE LIFE]” (John 5:39–40).

“[ENTER YE IN AT THE STRAIT GATE]: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat; because strait is the gate, and [NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE], and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13–14).

“[I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE]: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

“[I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND, BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE], Amen; and have [THE KEYS OF HELL AND OF DEATH]” (Revelation 1:18).

“[AND DEATH AND HELL WERE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE]. This is the second death. [AND WHOSOEVER WAS NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE]” (Revelation 20:14-15).

“[AND THE SEVENTH ANGEL POURED OUT HIS VIAL INTO THE AIR]; and there came [A GREAT VOICE] out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, [IT IS DONE]” (Revelation 16:17).

“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:16-21).

PRAYER is the key to communicate with GOD (Matthew 6:9-13)..

“The LORD is far from the wicked: but [HE HEARETH THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS]” (Proverbs 15:29).

“For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright” (Psalm 11:7). “The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness” (Jeremiah 4:2).

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must [WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the [TRUE WORSHIPPERS SHALL WORSHIP THE FATHER IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]: for the Father seeketh such to worship him” (John 4:24, 23).

“[WHEN THOU PRAYEST], enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, [PRAY TO THY FATHER WHICH IS IN SECRET]; and [THY FATHER WHICH SEETH IN SECRET SHALL REWARD THEE OPENLY]” (Matthew 6:6).

“[WHEN YE PRAY, USE NOT VAIN REPETITIONS], as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: [FOR YOUR FATHER KNOWETH WHAT THINGS YE HAVE NEED OF, BEFORE YE ASK HIM]” (Matthew 6:7-8).

Let us also be reminded how the Apostle Paul said: “P R A Y without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

In GLORY of the FATHER, the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.
The Cross 25

Our FATHER in the name of JESUS we thank you for this new day.

“It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new [EVERY MORNING]: great is thy faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23).

“IT is a [GOOD THING TO GIVE THANKS] unto the LORD, and to [SING PRAISES UNTO THY NAME, O MOST HIGH]: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the [MORNING], and thy faithfulness every [NIGHT]” (Psalm 92:1-2).

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in [SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]” (John 4:23–24).

“[WHEN YE PRAY, USE NOT VAIN REPETITIONS, AS THE HEATHEN DO[: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: [FOR YOUR FATHER KNOWETH WHAT THINGS YE HAVE NEED OF, BEFORE YE ASK HIM]” (Matthew 6:7-8).

“[AFTER THIS MANNER THEREFORE PRAY YE]: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our [DAILY] bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13).

JESUS is COMING ONCE on the LAST DAY for the DAY OF JUDGMENT! (Matthew 24:36) (Acts 17:30-31) (2 Corinthians 5:10).

DO NOT BE DECEIVED by doctrines of devils and men that there is a first and second coming!

JESUS COMES ONCE at the END OF THE WORLD AFTER the GREAT PERIOD OF TRIBUATION (Matthew 24:1-4, 29-30) (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) (Revelation 1:7-8, 11:18)!
BELIEVE the word of GOD as it is written:

“Arise, O God, [JUDGE THE EARTH]: for thou shalt inherit [ALL NATIONS]” (Psalm 82:8). “[ALL NATIONS] whom thou hast made [SHALL COME AND WORSHIP BEFORE THEE], O LORD; and [SHALL GLORIFY THY NAME]” (Psalms 86:9).

“That at the [NAME OF JESUS] every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:5–11).

BELIEVE also these words spoken by our Lord JESUS CHRIST as it is written:

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, [TELL US, WHEN SHALL THESE THINGS BE]? and what shall be the [SIGN OF THY COMING, AND OF THE END OF THE WORLD]? And Jesus answered and said unto them, [TAKE HEED THAT NO MAN DECEIVE YOU]. For many SHALL [COME IN MY NAME], saying, I am Christ; and [SHALL DECEIVE MANY]” (Matthew 24:3-5).

“[IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION] of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: [AND THEN SHALL APPEAR THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IN HEAVEN]: and then shall [ALL THE TRIBES OF THE EARTH MOURN, AND THEY SHALL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY]. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” (Matthew 24:29-31).

“[HE THAT SOWETH THE GOOD SEED IS THE SON OF MAN]; the field is the world; [THE GOOD SEED ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE KINGDOM]; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; the enemy that sowed them is the Devil; [THE HARVEST IS THE END OF THE WORLD]; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. [THEN SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN IN THE KINGDOM OF THEIR FATHER]” (Matthew 13:37–43).

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and [EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM], and they also which pierced him: and [ALL KINDREDS OF THE EARTH SHALL WAIL] because of him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:8).
The Face Of Christ In The Sky

Does anyone know who knows the way to the TREE OF LIFE in EDEN, the GARDEN OF GOD, the PARADISE OF GOD? (Genesis 2:8, 15-17, 25, 3:22-24) (Revelation 2:7).

There is ONLY ONE MAN who knows the WAY GOD the FATHER.

What is his name?

His name is JESUS, the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD (John 3:16-18).

“[JESUS CHRIST] the [SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8).

“[NOT EVERY ONE] that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, [SHALL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN; BUT HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN]” (Matthew 7:21).

“[ENTER YE IN AT THE STRAIT GATE]: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: [BECAUSE STRAIT IS THE GATE, AND NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT]” (Matthew 713-14).

“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. [I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU].

And if I go and prepare a place for you, [I WILL COME AGAIN, AND RECEIVE YOU UNTO MYSELF; THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YE MAY BE ALSO].

And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Thomas saith unto him, ‘Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?’

Jesus saith unto him, ‘[I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME]’” (John 14:2-6).

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that [OVERCOMETH] will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the [PARADISE OF GOD]” (Revelation 2:7).

“[I JESUS HAVE SENT MINE ANGEL TO TESTIFY UNTO YOU THESE THINGS IN THE CHURCHES]. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
He which testifieth these things saith, [SURELY I COME QUICKLY]. Amen. [EVEN SO, COME, LORD JESUS]. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:16-21).
Jesus Said To Him, "i Am The Way, The Truth, And The Life. No On

The CROSS.

Every day we must take up the CROSS of JESUS CHRIST.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, ‘If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me’” (Matthew 16:24).

“And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me” (Matthew 10:38).

“For it is written, ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.’ For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the [POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 1:18-19).

“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you?” (2 Corinthians 13:5).

“For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:24-29).

“Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:13, 15-16).

“Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen” (Romans 15:33).

what does Good Friday mean?

JESUS was the FIRST, the BEGINNING, the ALPHA and is the LAST, the ENDING, the OMEGA (Matthew 13:37–43) (Revelation 1:8)!

God declared of his only begotten Son, Jesus, the root of David (Revelation 22:16): “I will make him my [FIRSTBORN], higher than the kings of the earth. His seed also will I make to endure forever, and his throne as the days of heaven” (Psalm 89:27, 20).

The Apostle Paul explained of Jesus: “Who is the image of the invisible God, the [FIRSTBORN] of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the [BEGINNING, THE FIRSTBORN FROM THE DEAD]; that in all things he might have the pre-eminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell” (Colossians 1:15-18).

Brethren, do not be deceived; Jesus comes after the great tribulation on the Last Day at the End of the world.

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and [WHAT SHALL BE THE SIGN OF THY COMING, AND OF THE END OF THE WORLD]?” (Matthew 24:3).

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5).

“Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall [SHEW GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS]; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not” (Matthew 24:23-26).

“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star” (Revelation 22:16).

“[I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE ENDING], saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8).

“[I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END, THE FIRST AND THE LAST]” (Revelation 22:13).

“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).

“He which testifieth these things saith, [SURELY I COME QUICKLY]. Amen. [EVEN SO, COME], Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:20-21).
GOD

WORMWOOD is COMING before the END OF THE WORLD: (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 8:7-11, 11:18).

Every day we awake we must ‘SET OUR HOUSE IN ORDER’ because we do not know the time we will die. Specifically, we must have come to REPENTANCE AND REMISSION OF OUR SINS (2 Peter 3:9).

“And as it is [APPOINTED UNTO MEN ONCE TO DIE], but [AFTER THIS THE JUDGMENT]” (Hebrews 9:27).

This is of utmost important because unlike King Hezekiah of Judah in the old time when God spoke to him through Isaiah who knew that he was going to die, we do not know our appointed time to die” (2 Kings 20:1).

Our Lord Jesus when he was here on earth, saying: “[THE TIME IS FULFILLED], and the Kingdom of God is at hand: [REPENT YE, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL]” (Mark 1:15).

“[I CAME] not [TO CALL] the righteous, but [SINNERS TO REPENTANCE]” (Luke 5:32).

“I said therefore unto you, that [YE SHALL DIE IN YOUR SINS]: for [IF YE BELIEVE NOT THAT I AM HE], ye shall [DIE IN YOUR SINS]” (John 8:24).

“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3). “[FOR I CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN], not [TO DO] mine own will, but [THE WILL OF HIM THAT SENT ME]” (John 6:38).

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall [THE END] come” (Matthew 24:14).

“AND [TAKE HEED TO YOURSELVES, LEST AT ANY TIME] your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and [CARES OF THIS LIFE], and [SO THAT DAY COME UPON YOU UNAWARES]. [FOR AS A SNARE SHALL IT COME ON ALL THEM THAT DWELL ON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH].

[WATCH YE THEREFORE, AND PRAY ALWAYS], that ye may be accounted [WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS THAT SHALL COME TO PASS], and to [STAND] before the Son of man” (Luke 21:34–36).

“For, behold the LORD cometh out of his place [TO PUNISH THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH FOR THEIR INIQUITY]; the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain” (Isaiah 26:21).

“[AND THE THIRD ANGEL SOUNDED, AND THERE FELL A GREAT STAR FROM HEAVEN, BURNING AS IT WERE A LAMP], and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called [WORMWOOD]: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter” (Revelation 8:7-11).

“[OUR SOUL WAITETH] for the LORD: [HE IS OUR HELP AND OUR SHIELD]” (Psalm 33:20).

The POWER OF JESUS CHRIST!

Many people are not aware of the POWER given to our Lord Jesus Christ by his FATHER after he was raised from the dead after his crucifixion, when he told his disciples, saying: “[ALL POWER IS GIVEN UNTO ME IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH]” (Matthew 28:18).

The disciple John expressed the enormity of things that were done by our Lord Jesus Christ after he was risen before he was taken up to heaven saying:

“And [THERE ARE ALSO MANY OTHER THINGS WHICH JESUS DID, THE WHICH, IF THEY SHOULD BE WRITTEN EVERY ONE, I SUPPOSE THAT EVEN THE WORLD ITSELF COULD NOT CONTAIN THE BOOKS THAT SHOULD BE WRITTEN]. Amen” (John 21:25).

Let us read again some of what he said: “…IF THEY SHOULD BE WRITTEN EVERY ONE, I SUPPOSE THAT EVEN THE WORLD ITSELF COULD NOT CONTAIN THE BOOKS THAT SHOULD BE WRITTEN…”.

Let us just imagine, the things that our Lord Jesus did that the world could not contain the books if they were written!

“He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. [THE FATHER LOVETH THE SON, AND HATH GIVEN ALL THINGS INTO HIS HAND]” (John 3:33–35).

Therefore, EVERY HUMAN BEING would be wise to FOLLOW “[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8).

“[I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND, BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE], Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and [EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM], and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:8).

“[I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END, THE FIRST AND THE LAST]. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city” (Revelation 22:13-14).

“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star” (Revelation 22:16).

“He which testifieth these things saith, [SURELY I COME QUICKLY]. Amen. [EVEN SO, COME], Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:20-21).

“He who lives or dies in JESUS CHRIST wins” or “He who dies with the most toys wins”? (Revelation 11:18, 20:11-15).

In this world untold numbers of people spend a lifetime trying to achieve the goal as the 1980’s slogan says: “He who dies with the most toys wins”.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED!

To win in this life is to FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST TO OBTAIN ETERNAL LIFE! (John 3:16-18).

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for [A MAN’S LIFE CONSISTETH NOT IN THE ABUNDANCE OF THE THINGS WHICH HE POSSESSETH]” (Luke 12:15).

Anyone who chooses to seek to amass wealth, riches, and possessions in this world is choosing to serve the prince of this world, the devil aka Satan which is of NO PROFIT because Jesus also pointed saying: “For what is a man profited, if [HE SHALL GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD, AND LOSE HIS OWN SOUL]? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:26).

“No servant 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. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (Luke 16:13).

James, the brother of Jesus said: “Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is an enemy of God” (James 4:4). “Hath not God chosen the [POOR OF THIS WORLD RICH IN FAITH], and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” (James 2:5).

“Riches and honor are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness” (Proverbs 8:17-18).

“[THEY THAT FOLLOWETH AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS AND MERCY FINDETH LIFE], righteousness, and honor” (Proverbs 21:21). “Laying up in store for themselves a good
foundation against the time to come, [THAT THEY MAY LAY HOLD ON ETERNAL LIFE]” (1 Timothy 6:19).

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the [DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST], [WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS], to meet the Lord in the air: and [SO SHALL WE EVER] be with the Lord. “Wherefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–18).

Jesus also says: “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).

“I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

“THEN COMETH THE END, when he shall have [DELIVERED UP THE KINGDOM TO GOD, EVEN THE FATHER]; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).
