GOD or the world?

We cannot be in the LIGHT and at the sametime in darkness.
We cannot follow after RIGHTEOUSNESS and at the sametime wickedness.
We cannot follow JESUS and at the sametime a billionaire.
We cannot be in the KINGDOM OF GOD and at the same time in a secret society.
We cannot love GOD and at the same time love money.
We cannot be a servant of GOD and at the same the a servant of the world, the prince of this world, the devil, aka Satan.
Jesus says: “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).
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error” (1 John 4:1-8).
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world” (1 John 2:15).
“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).
“If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever” (1 John 2:15–17).

SALVATION = LIGHT OF LIFE.

“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1).

“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us” (1 John 4:17-19).

“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 3:16-18).

“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that [GOD IS LIGHT], and in him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5).

“And this is the condemnation, that [LIGHT] is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God” (John 3:19-21).

JESUS, the only begotten Son of God says: “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the [LIGHT OF LIFE]” (John 8:12).

“As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world” (John 9:5).

“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).

GOD’S GLORY OF LIGHT or vain glory?

A day does not pass by in this world with a headline about a “video goes viral”.

Do not not be deceived by vain glory in this world because the word of God says: “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world” (1 John 2:15). “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).

The Apostle Paul well said: “Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another” (Galatians 5:26).

“For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself” (Galatians 6:3).

G O D ONLY is the P O W E R and G L O R Y.

“God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God” (Psalm 62:11).

“Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD” (Jeremiah 9:23-24).

God has give all power to his only begotten Son Jesus Christ, the one and only Savior (John 3:16-18) who says: “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18). “For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:13).

“Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:6–7).

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5:6–7).

“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the [GLORY] which shall be revealed in us” (Romans 8:18).

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

“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.
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).

GOD ONLY is GOD: JESUS is the ONLY begotten Son of GOD.

A Prayer of King David.

“O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! Who hast set thy glory above the heavens. When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; what is man, that thou art mindful of him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him” (Psalms 8:1-9, 103: 11).

“Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name. For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: [THOU ART GOD ALONE]. I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore” (Psalm 86:10-12).

Let us keep prayerful and faithful EVERYDAY as GOD’S Elect in the Kingdom of God to obtain the promise on the Last Day: “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the [ONLY TRUE GOD, AND JESUS CHRIST], whom thou hast sent” (John 17:3).

EVERY DAY we must keep building TREASURES in HEAVEN!

Our Lord, Savior and King Jesus Christ reminds us saying:

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).

“The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD” (Lamentation 3:25-26).

“For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him” (Isaiah 64:4).

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD” (Psalm 27:14).

“Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” (Matthew 24:42).
“Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not” (Luke 12:40).

“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven, immediately after the tribulation of those days, 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: 29–30, 31).

“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 1:7).
The Face Of Christ In The Sky

We must PRAY DAILY to our FATHER in HEAVEN.

“The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous” (Proverbs 15:29).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of the Father says: “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).

Confession and Belief in JESUS CHRIST leads to SALVATION.

JESUS says: “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 10:32-33).

“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 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]” (Romans 10:8-10).

“For the scripture saith, ‘Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed’” (Romans 10:11).

God is The Father and The Word of God is the only begotten Son.

“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).

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made” (John 1:1-3).

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).
To get to the world without end in New Heavens and a New Earth which God created from the foundation of this world, God has given human beings his only begotten Son (John 3:16-18).

“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).

“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).

“For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; and hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man” (John 5:26–27).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God 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).

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

C R E A T I O N by G O D or ‘Big bang Theory’?

To believe in “The Big Bang theory” is to deny the Power and Glory of LORD God the Creator.

God created this heaven and earth. The Big Bang theory is just that, a theory. We must never fall for the lies and deception of the prince of this world. We must endure sound doctrine because the word of God is pure (Proverbs 30:5).

“IN the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light” (Genesis 1:1-3).

“By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast” (Psalm 33:1, 8-9).

God created all space and the seven star systems (Amos 5:8), to name a few, “Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south” (Job 9:9). We need only look up to stars in the sky at night and recall what God asked Job: “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?” (Job 38:31).

“Great is our LORD, and of great power: his understanding is infinite. He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names” (Psalm 147:4–5).
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork” (Psalms 19:1).

“He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down. Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening. O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches” (Psalm 104:19, 23-24).

“PRAISE ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.
Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.
Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created. He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass” (Psalm 148:1-6).

“Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD” (Psalm 106:48).

PRAISE the LORD God or Punishment FORVER?

EVERY human being would be wise to PRAISE LORD because EVERY THING exists because of GOD!

“Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture” (Psalm 100:2-3).

“PRAISE ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.
Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.
Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.
Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.
He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.
Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:
Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling his word:
Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:
Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:
Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:
Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven” (Psalm 148:1-13).

“PRAISE ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.
Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD” (Psalm 150:1, 6).
