HEAVENLY versus Earthly or CELESTIAL versus Terrestial.

“There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory” (1 Corinthians 15:40–41).

“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption” (1 Corinthians 15:50).

“The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit” (1Corinthians 15:47–49, 45).

Jesus says: “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63).
At the end of the world, the Day of Judgment, the Last Day all those who are rewarded with the gift of eternal light can die no more and will become equal to the angels, being the children of God and the children of the resurrection (Matthew 20:36).

“For as the Father rises 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” (John 5:21–22).

“Wherefore God saith: ‘Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light’” (Ephesians 5:14).

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:50-51, 53).

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [LAST] trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:52–53).

“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 8:12-13).

Mans Journey of the Soul

DAY OF CHRIST = DAY OF JUDGMENT = THE END.

The Kingdom of God will be delivered up on the LAST DAY.

Our Lord Jesus Christ WARNED saying: “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).

“For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14).

The Apostle Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles said: “Work out your own [SALVATION] with fear and trembling that ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the [DAY OF CHRIST]” (Philippians 2:12, 1:10).

On the day that Jesus returns, the LAST DAY will commence the GATHERING unto himself, his sheepfold away from the goats (Matthew 25:31–34) (Matthew 13:37–43).

Jesus says: “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and [KEEPETH HIS GARMENTS, LEST HE WALK NAKED], and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that [EVERY ONE MAY RECEIVE THE THINGS DONE IN HIS BODY], according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

Jesus is very clear when he asks: “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:8).

“The LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that [DAY] shall there be one LORD, and his name one. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south” (Zechariah 14:8–9, 4).

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call” (Joel 2:31-32).

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by [OUR GATHERING TOGETHER UNTO HIM], whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thessalonians 2:1).

“[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).

H E A V E N = P A R A D I S E versus Hell = Perdition

PARADISE: Going home to HEAVEN to be with GOD and JESUS where there is peace forever.

Perdition: Going into the lake of fire with the devil and his angels where there will be punishment forever.

“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).

“The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath” (Proverbs 15:24).

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God” (Psalm 9:17).

KEEP FOLLOWING J E S U S to the END.

Whatever direction we take this day, and for the rest of our lives on this earth, we must keep going in the direction to follow JESUS.

“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).

“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” (John 14:2–3).

“[MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE], and I know them, and they [FOLLOW ME]: And [I GIVE UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE]; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one” (John 10:27-30).

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

The Way

DAY OF JUDGMENT: RIGHTEOUSNESS versus unrighteousness?

On the Day of Judgment we will not be judged according to race, religion or riches: “For there is no respect of persons with God” (Romans 2:11).

“For [GOD WILL NOT LAY UPON MAN MORE THAN RIGHT]; that he should enter into judgment with God” (Job 34:23).

“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son” (John 5:22) who spoke these words saying: “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge [RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT]” (John 7:24).

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

“Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
For there is no respect of persons with God” (Romans 2:6-11).

“For the [WRATH OF GOD IS REVEALED FROM HEAVEN AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN], who hold the truth in unrighteousness” (Romans 1:18).

“In the [WAY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IS LIFE]; and in the pathway thereof there is no death” (Proverbs 12:28).

GOOD versus Evil:

“Woe unto them that [CALL EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL]; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20).

We live in a world built on a foundation of confusion. “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:9).

The prince of this world, the devil, aka Satan continues to deceive the whole world specifically, using the “transgender” agenda where men are masquerading as women and vice versa for no other reason than to create confusion to deceive the whole world calling him her; she he; her him and he she: CONFUSION!

But, do not be deceived because a man will never become a woman and a woman will never become a man: it is an abomination!

The Holy Scriptures says: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion” (Leviticus 18:22–23).

“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God” (Deuteronomy 22:5).

“Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore” (Psalm 37:27).
Good Over Evil

Day of Judgment: GOOD versus evil?

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God” (Romans 13:1).

“Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation” (Romans 13:2).

“For we must all appear before the [JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST]; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son” (John 5:22).

“Who will render to [EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS]:
To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, [INDIGNATION AND WRATH, TRIBULATION AND ANGUISH, UPON EVERY SOUL OF MAN THAT DOETH EVIL], of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
But [GLORY, HONOUR, AND PEACE, TO EVERY MAN THAT WORKETH GOOD], to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
For there is no respect of persons with God” (Romans 2:6-11).

“[DEPART FROM EVIL, AND DO GOOD]; and dwell for evermore” (Psalm 37:27).

A WORLD of DECEIT!

The devil, aka Satan deceives the whole world (Revelation 12:7-9).

How is the devil, aka Satan deceiving the whole world?

First of all what is a deceiver?

These are synonyms: Liar, Cheat, Fraud, Swindler, Fraudster.

The biggest fraud that the devil, aka Satan is running in this world is the deceitfulness of money and sin.

Turn on the television, radio or internet; open a magazine, newspaper or other forms of media, and surely there is this constant bombardment of promotion of a lifestyle of wealth and riches, beauty, power and so on. He skillfully uses idols in politics, music, movies, sports and other celebrity positions to promte his deceitful agenda.

However, the most cunning deceit is that of “Transgenderism” where him is being called her; she is referred to he; male is actually a female and vice versa.

Why does he do this? Why?

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “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” (John 8:44).

There is NO TRUTH in him!

Therefore, he called the Son of Wickedness (Psalm 89:22); that man of Sin, the Son of Perdition (2 Thessalonians 2:3).

Many people may not realize this fact but, money is Unrighteous. We cannot pick up the cross of Jesus and at the same time labour to be rich in this world being deceived by the words on money: “In God we Trust”!

Jesus says:“[NO MAN 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]” (Matthew 6:24).

“And I say unto you, make to yourselves friends of the [MAMMON OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS]; that, when ye [FAIL], they may [RECEIVE YOU INTO EVERLASTING HABITATIONS]” (Luke 16:9).

Jesus also warns that we must not “Let the cares of this world, and the [DECEITFULNESS OF RICHES], and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word and it becometh unfruitful” (Mark 4:19).

“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).

“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the [DECEITFULNESS OF SIN]. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto [THE END]” (Hebrews 3:12-14).

A short story of the Rich man and the Prophet.

The Rich man says: I have mansions and estate homes; garages with luxury cars; private islands; horse ranches and farms; not to mention billions invested in the world financial markets.
Anything I want I can have it!

The Prophet asks: Anything?

The Rich man says: Yes; anything! Just name it.

The Prophet asks: Do you have Eternal Life?

The Rich man answers: Who wants to live forever? I have everything in this life now. We all have to die anyway.

The Prophet says: Death is not the end!

The Rich man asks: What do you mean: “death is not the end”?

The Prophet explained sayimg: There is a day coming called the Day of Judgment when every human being will face final judgment for all the things done in our lifetime. The word of God says: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10-11).

The Rich man: Who is this Christ?

The Prophet says: Christ is the only begotten Son of God: JESUS: “the Christ of God” (Luke 9:20), the only Savior of human beings:

“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).

The Rich man says: I am not a believer.

The Prophet says: You would be wise to become a believer because the word of God says: “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 3:18).

Furthermore, Jesus Christ 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 13:5). “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38).

The Rich man says: How can I perish when I am dead?

The Prophet says: There will be a Second Death. I suggest you read in the Holy Bible (Revelation 6:15-17, 20:11-15. KJV).

The Rich man says: I just don’t have the time. I’ll take my chances; I must run now; there is money to be made before I die.

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God” (Luke 18:24). “Woe unto you that are rich; for ye have received your consolation” (Luke 6:24).

‘Verily I say unto you, that there be some of them that stand here, which shall not [TASTE OF DEATH], till they have seen the Kingdom of God come with power’” (Mark 9:1).

“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the [RICH MEN], and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the [GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME]; and who shall be able to stand?” (Revelation 6:15-17).

“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 profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death” (Proverbs 11:4).

PRAY in S P I R I T and T R U T H.

Jesus reminds us 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).

Jesus taught us to pray saying: “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).
