We live in a world where the pinnacle of success is having to be crowned with the status of a billionaire. But, do not be deceived!
Let us be reminded every day of our Lord JESUS in the last days before his crucifixion when “A certain scribe came, and said unto Jesus, ‘Master; I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.’ And Jesus saith unto him, ‘The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but [THE SON OF MAN HATH NOT WHERE TO LAY HIS HEAD]’” (Matthew 8:19–20).
Just imagine these are words of the most POWERFUL HUMAN BEING confirmed by the word of God when he said, “All things that the Father hath are mine” (John 16:15). That is, most powerful person, not by the illusory or vain standards of this world, but, by the POWER OF GOD when he also said: “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18).
“He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. [THE FATHER LOVETH THE SON, AND HATH GIVEN ALL THINGS INTO HIS HAND]” (John 3:33–35).
“Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake” (John 14:10=11).
JESUS is the only human being with the POWER TO GIVE EVERLASTING LIFE (John 3:16-18). Therefore, live every day with our hearts set on getting to EVERLASTING HABITATIONS IN THE NEW HEAVENS AND NEW EARTH TO COME AT THE END OF TIME.
Finally, let us also be reminded how Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles who preached the gospel of Jesus Christ said: “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: [THAT YOUR FAITH SHOULD NOT STAND IN THE WISDOM OF MEN, BUT IN THE POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 2:4-5).
“For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).
JESUS says: “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. 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 1:8-9).
