HEART of L I F E.

How often have we heard or seen the expression “the heart of the matter”? Actually, taking everything into consideration on this earth, the heart is the center of everything.

The heart is the crucial organ for the physical body to live. So too, what is in our heart is most crucial for our soul to live.

What we eat or put into our body will affect the health of our heart; so too what is in our heart or proceeds out of our heart is a direct result of the way we live spiritually.

“A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones” (Proverbs 14:30).

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9).

A healthy heart is the key to a healthy physical life. A pure heart is the key to a pure spiritual life. Keep our heart healthy and pure, and we will obtain the promise of eternal LIFE. God knows all our hearts and has declared through Jeremiah saying:

“I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings” (Jeremiah 17:10).

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

GOD is L O V E.

“God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16).

“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” (John 3:16).

“Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit” (1 John 4:11-13).

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

FEAR? JESUS says, FEAR NOT!

There is no need for us to FEAR anyone or anything in this world but GOD (Ecclesiastes 12:13–14).

“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” (1 John 4:18).

“God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16).

“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” (John 3:16).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil” (John 7:7).

“And [FEAR NOT] them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

“And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and [SOME OF YOU SHALL THEY CAUSE TO BE PUT TO DEATH]. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. “But there shall not a hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls” (Luke 21:16–19).

“And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and [CAUSE THEM TO BE PUT TO DEATH]. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 10:21-22).

“[FEAR NONE OF THOSE THINGS WHICH THOU SHALT SUFFER]: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou [FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH], and I will give thee a crown of life” (Revelation 2:10).

”And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away” (1 Peter 5:4).

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death (John 8:51).

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

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

Jesus

FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST ONLY!

Jesus was the FIRST and will be the LAST!

Do not be DECEIVED when the AntiChrist comes pretending to be CHRIST!

JESUS is coming down from HEAVEN!

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]’” (Matthew 24:3-4).

[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].

For as the [LIGHTNING COMETH OUT OF THE EAST, AND SHINETH EVEN UNTO THE WEST; SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE]” (Matthew 24:22-27).

“And when these things begin to come to pass, [THEN LOOK UP, AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS]; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH]” (Luke 21:28).

“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).

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and [THE END], the first and [THE LAST]” (Revelation 22:13).

“[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).

Jesus prays in the clouds.

END of the ROAD: ETERNAL LIFE or EVERLASTING FIRE.

“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).

The Apostle Paul further articulated, saying: “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).

“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).

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:7-8).

Heaven and Hell

R I S E N versus Fallen.

The choice is unquestionably straight forward whom to follow:– 1) a Savior who is RISEN and lives forever or 2) a Destroyer who is FALLEN and will die forever?

Who we follow in our lifetime will determine our outcome on the Last Day. Who are you following: 1) the One who is RISEN or 2) the one who is FALLEN?

The devil, aka Satan, whose name is Lucifer, the once anointed cherub (Ezekiel 28:13–15) or prince is a fallen “son of God, also referred to as the “son of perdition” (2 Thessalonians 2:3), and his angels were cast out of heaven to the nether part of this earth (2 Peter 2:4): “and his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth” (Revelation 12:4).

“These are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise” (Psalm 36:12).

On the other hand, God sent his only begotten Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die for the sins of the world. “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).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke 5:32).

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

“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32).

“IF ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. [WHEN CHRIST, WHO IS OUR LIFE, SHALL APPEAR, THEN SHALL YE ALSO APPEAR WITH HIM IN GLORY]” (Colossians 3:1-4).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, is the author of Eternal Salvation.

Lucifer, the fallen son of wickedness, the prince of this world, is the author of confusion.

At the end of time,

Kingdom of Confusion will finally be FALLEN with an EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION (Isaiah 24:19 ) (Micah 1:3–4) (Revelation 14:11, 20:15);

Kingdom of GOD will finally be RISEN with an ETERNAL SALVATION (Daniel 12:1) (Joel 2:31-32) (1 Corinthians 15:24) (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) (Revelation 13:8-9).

Heaven And Hell - Sign On Blue Sky

Frequency of SPIRIT: GOD or devil?

What frequency of spirit we have been tuned into during our lifetime will determine on the LAST DAY our final destination:

HEAVEN: Tuned in to the frequency of LIGHT that is ABOVE: the SPIRIT of the MOST HIGH: GOD!

HELL: Tuned into the frequency of Darkness that is BELOW: the spirit of the FALLEN son of wickedness: the Devil, aka Satan.

“Whosoever is [BORN OF GOD DOTH NOT COMMIT SIN]; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

In this the [CHILDREN OF GOD] are manifest, and the [CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL]: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous. Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him” (1 John 3:9-15).

“[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).

“[AND HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THE UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS], but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light” (Ephesians 5:11–13).

JESUS CHRIST is our SAVIOR!

There is only “One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ” (Ephesians 4:5-7).

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17).

“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 since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:21–22).

“The Lord knoweth them that are his” (2 Timothy 2:19). “Now if any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his” (Romans 8:9).
The Apostle Paul also said: “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:2–3).

“IF ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory” (Colossians 3:1-4).

E T E R N A L REWARDS versus worldly awards.

This time of the year in this world there is a preoccupation with awards shows: red carpet fashion hits and misses or best and worse dress; winners and losers; highs and lows; iconic, trending and viral moments and the list goes on, and on.

Given the fact that there is so much suffering, starvation and sorrow by countless people in this world where over one billion people live on the edge of poverty, words cannot begin to describe such childishness or silliness or foolishness.

“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).

“The thought of foolishness is sin:” (Proverbs 24:9).
Words spoken by King David, “…the sweet psalmist in Israel” (2 Samuel 23:1):

“Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches” (Psalm 73:11).

“When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end” (Psalm 73:16-17).

“For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked” (Psalm 73:3).

“For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee. But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works” (Psalm 73:27-28).

“For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish” (Psalm 1:6).

“Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD” (Psalms 37:34, 27:14).

“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” (Lamentations 3:25-26).

Now, therefore, as the only way to get the things that are eternal is through Jesus Christ who died for us; for this purpose then we should live unto him and not unto ourselves (2 Corinthians 5:15).

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:20).
