GOD is a S P I R I T.

JESUS CHRIST, the only begotten Son of God says: ‘God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24).

“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).

The Apostle Paul also explained, said: “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption” (1 Corinthians 15:50).

“But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the [SPIRIT OF GOD] dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness” (Romans 8:9-10).

“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).

“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).

We must keep robust, resolute and righteous every day to the END.

There will be days when we may get somewhat wearisome of the things in this world.

However, in such times we must pray to God in the name of Jesus for strength and steadfastness to stay the course knowing that we have a great reward coming at the END.

Let us also be reminded of these words of the Apostle Paul who said: “[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).

“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; [IF SO BE THAT WE SUFFER WITH HIM, THAT WE MAY BE ALSO GLORIFIED TOGETHER]” (Romans 8:16-17).

“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us” (Romans 8:31-34).

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “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).
Christian Worshippers At The Cross

GOD was, is and will always be GOD.

Every human being must WORSHIP and SERVE ONLY GOD because this earth belongs to GOD.

“For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5).

“The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” (Psalms 95:5, 24:1).

Therefore, to worship the prince of this world, the devil, aka, Satan to gain the whole world is a DEAD END! “For ye are [DEAD], and your [LIFE] is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:2–3).

“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: “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mark 8:36-37).

“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).

“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else” (Isaiah 45:22).

“Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die” (Ezekiel 18:4).

“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. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation” (Romans 13:1–2).

“[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).

Temple of GOD?

“Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body” (1 Corinthians 6:13).

“Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband” (1 Corinthians 7:2). Paul, the apostle also wrote about the unmarried, widows ans widowers, said: “If they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn” (1 Corinthians 7:8-9).

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the [SPIRIT OF GOD] dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” (1 Corinthians 3:16–17).

“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).

“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).

“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).

The WRATH OF GOD is COMING on the LAST DAY (Revelation 11:18):

“O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD” (Jeremiah 22:29).

“Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. [THEY SHALL PERISH], but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed. But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end” (Psalm 102:25-27).
There is ONLY ONE WAY TO ESCAPE!

“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else” (Isaiah 45:22).

“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).

“He that [BELIEVETH ON THE SON HATH EVERLASTING LIFE]: and he that [BELIEVETH NOT THE SON SHALL NOT SEE LIFE]; but the [WRATH OF GOD] abideth on him” (John 3:36).

“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).
“Nevertheless we, according to his promise, [LOOK FOR NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH], wherein dwelleth [RIGHTEOUSNESS]. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (2 Peter 3:13-14).

“[FOR GOD HATH] not [APPOINTED US] to wrath, but [TO OBTAIN SALVATION BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST]” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

Armageddon

Where is the entrance to HEAVEN?

There is only ONE entrance to heaven, and anyone seeking to enter must be chosen to go through this DOOR. This person’s name is JESUS who spoke these words, saying:

“Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. [I AM THE DOOR: BY ME IF ANY MAN ENTER IN, HE SHALL BE SAVED], and shall go in and out, and find pasture” (John 10:7,9).

“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).

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

 

DAY OF THE LORD:

Let us keep ourselves unspotted from the world.

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62).

“For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning” (2 Peter 2:20).

James, the brother of Jesus said: “If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and [TO KEEP HIMSELF UNSPOTTED FROM THE WORLD]” (James 1:26-27).

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 3:22).

“And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: [FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND]. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. [AND, BEHOLD, I COME QUICKLY; AND MY REWARD IS WITH ME, TO GIVE EVERY MAN ACCORDING AS HIS WORK SHALL BE]” (Revelation 22:10-12).
“Be ye also patient; stablish your heart: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh” (James 5:8).

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

“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:37).

“Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, [WITHOUT SPOT], and blameless” (2 Peter 3:14).

MINISTRY OF PARADISE.

All Posts are supported by the word of God as quoted from the Authorized King James version of the Holy Bible. In glory of the Father; the Son and the Holy Spirit: Amen.
Ministry of Paradise is not affiliated with any church denomination; and is simply spreading the word of God to turn people to knowledge of the truth.

“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:3-4).

“For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth” (Psalm 33:4).

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

“Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read” (Isaiah 34:16).

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in [RIGHTEOUSNESS]” (2 Timothy 3:16).

When we read the Holy Bible, we are taught as pointed out by Peter, a disciple of Jesus who stated it best when he said: “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: knowing this first, that [NO PROPHECY OF THE SCRIPTURE IS OF ANY PRIVATE INTERPRETATION]. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (2 Peter 1:19–21).

We are also told about the word of God by the prophet Isaiah who said; “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little” (Isaiah 28:10).

“The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever” (Psalm 12:6-7).

Jesus says: “It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” (Luke 4:4).

“Blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it” (Luke 11:28).

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

“Forever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89).

A moment of silence while we hear these words of our Lord, Savior and King J E S U S:

“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).

“Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake” (Matthew 5:11).

“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10).

“Blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it” (Luke 11:28).

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

“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).

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

HEAVENLY versus earthly = SPIRIT versus flesh = ETERNAL LIFE versus second death = PARADISE versus lake of fire.

To BLEIEVE in JESUS is to BELIEVE the word of GOD is to BELIEVE that there is ETERNAL LIFE is in HEAVEN.

When Jesus was here on earth he said:

“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

[IF I HAVE TOLD YOU EARTHLY THINGS, AND YE BELIEVE NOT, HOW SHALL YE BELIEVE, IF I TELL YOU OF HEAVENLY THINGS]?

And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
That [WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE]” (John 3:11-15).

“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 3:26-18).

“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).

“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).

The Apostle Paul also explained, said: “And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit” (1 Corinthians 15:45).

“And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly” (1 Corinthians 15:47–49).

“Now this I say, brethren, that [FLESH AND BLOOD CANNOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD]; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption” (1 Corinthians 15:50).

“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).
