F E A R?

Great tribulation (Matthew 24:21), Antichrist (1 John 2:18), Six hundred threescore and six (Revelation 13:18), Mark of the beast (Revelation 16:2) are words that bring fear and fearfulness into untold numbers of people.

There is no reason to fear because we trust in GOD.

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah” (Psalm 46:10-11).

“The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe” (Proverbs 29:25).

“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 11:31).

“Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry” (Hebrews 11:35-37).

The END is the E N D OF THE WORLD.

Our end is near; our days are fulfilled, for indeed the end is coming one day (Acts 17:30-31).

However, Jesus says: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).

While there is still time,  Jesus says: “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).

“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).

“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35).

“For surely there is an end” (Proverbs 23:18).

The Path Of The Truth Of Christ Jesus

GOD’s S A L V A T I O N: Everlasting Covenant was FIRST to the JEWS then to GENTILES.

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance” (Psalm 33:12).

“Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually. Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones. He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth. Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; Even of the [COVENANT WHICH HE MADE WITH ABRAHAM, AND OF HIS OATH UNTO ISAAC; AND HATH CONFIRMED THE SAME TO JACOB FOR A LAW, AND TO ISRAEL FOR AN EVERLASTING COVENANT]” (1 Chronicles 16:10-17).

God chose the people of Israel for his inheritance, and sent his only begotten Son Jesus to this earth to both Jews and Gentiles, as it is written:

“Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising” (Isaiah 55:4, 60:3).

“A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel” (Luke 2:32).

Jesus underscored this very fact in his communication with a Samaritan woman by a well saying: “Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for [SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS]” (John 4:22-24).

Jesus selected Paul to be a minister to the Gentiles, as he said: “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me” (Acts 26:18).

The Apostle Paul explained, said: “THE GENTILES SHOULD BE FELLOWHEIRS, AS CO-INHERITORS WITH THE JEWS AND PARTAKERS OF HIS PROMISE IN CHRIST BY THE GOSPEL” (Ephesians 3:6).

“That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the [BLOOD OF CHRIST]. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father” (Ephesians 2:12–19).

“Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, [THROUGH THE BLOOD OF THE EVERLASTING COVENANT], Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen” (Hebrews 13:20-21).

 

R E P E N T A N C E = E T E R N A L L I F E.

Jesus says: “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).

“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).

“For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life” (John 5:21-24).

Salvation

E T E R N A L JUDGMENT: Blessed or cursed?

At the end of the Day of Judgment on the Last Day when Jesus returns at the End of the world, Judgment will be FINAL!

Before it is too late, if not already done so, Jesus says: “Repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).

What many people fail to realize is the date of the End of the world is not important because only God knows (Matthew 24:36). However, we are commanded by God to repent because we only have this lifetime (Acts 17:30-31).

Should we die before the end, there will be no other time to repent; “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

On the day that Jesus returns he explained in detail the events of that day when he will gather all nations before him and spearte the sheep on his right hand, and the goats on his left hand (Matthew 25:31-46).

“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, ‘Come, ye [BLESSED] of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world’” (Matthew 25:31–34).

“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, depart from me, ye [CURSED], into everlasting fire, prepared for the Devil and his angels. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment” (Matthew 25:41, 46).

Heaven and Hell

E T E R N A L L I F E versus LIFETIME.

Who among us wouldn’t desire to live forever?

We can all live forever: God has given to us all the promise of SALVATION through his only begotten Son.

“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. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).

“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the Son of man, that he should repent” (Numbers 23:19).

“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead” (Acts 17:30-31).

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed” (Romans 10:9-11).

The Holy Scriptures says: “Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it” (Psalm 34:14).

Jesus says: “Ye have heard that it hath been said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:’ But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also” (Matthew 5:38-39).

The Apostle Paul said: “Abstain from all appearance of evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:22). “Recompense to no man evil for evil” (Romans 12:17).

“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:19-21).

Our Lord Jesus also 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 ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust” (Matthew 5:44-45).

“Ye are the light of the world. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:14, 16).

Who will inherit the KINGDOM OF GOD?

The Apostle Paul said: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:1).

Paul also explained, said: “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God” (Galatians 5:19–21).

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith” (Galatians 5:22).

“So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Romans 8:8, 12-13).

“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25).

“Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth” (1 John 5:5–6).

“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one” (1 John 5:7–8).

GOSPEL OF GOD and CHRIST.

“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds” (Hebrews 1:1–2).

“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds” (2 John 1:7, 9-11).

“Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it” (Psalm 34:14).

“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23).

Jesus says: “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8-9).

GOD of Peace and Gospel of Peace.

We must live every day in peace and to do as Paul said: “Abstain from all appearance of evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:22).

“Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men” (Romans 12:17-18).

“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the [GOSPEL OF PEACE]; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:13-17).

“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:23).

“Now the [GOD OF PEACE] be with you all. Amen” (Romans 15:33).
