The CROSS is the POWER OF GOD.

“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]” (John 3:16-17).

“For it is written, ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.’ [FOR THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS IS TO THEM THAT PERISH FOOLISHNESS; BUT UNTO US WHICH ARE SAVED IT IS THE POWER OF GOD] ” (1 Corinthians 1:18-19).

“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).

“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).

We must always try to hold our PEACE.

When things in our life are not going the way we planned or we are being used or done wrong by others or we are facing difficulties or in desperate situations or simply do not know what to do in some circumstances, there is no need to become angry and shout or scream or lose control. God forbid.
We must simply PRAY: “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Pray to God in the name of Jesus in truth and in Spirit (John 4:23–24).
Our Lord Jesus reminds us that we ought to PRAY and not faint (Luke 18:1) because The Holy Scriptures says: “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small” (Proverbs 24:10).

“[CEASE FROM ANGER], and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil” (Psalm 37:8).

“[HE THAT IS SLOW TO ANGER IS BETTER THAN THE MIGHTY]; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city” (Proverbs 16:32).

“Wherefore take unto you the whole [ARMOUR OF GOD, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO WITHSTAND IN THE EVIL DAY], and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the [GOSPEL OF PEACE]; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And [TAKE THE HELMET OF SALVATION, AND THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT], which is the [WORD OF GOD]” (Ephesians 6:13-17).

“Now the [GOD OF PEACE] be with you all. Amen” (Romans 15:33).

S A V I O R versus Destroyer.

JESUS LOVES US and would like for us to have ETERNAL LIFE IN PARADISE (John 3:15-18).

SATAN, the Devil hates us and would like for us to have EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT in PERDITION (John 15:23) (Revelation 20:11, 14:11).

The choice is very clear who we ought to FOLLOW: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) “The Christ of God” (Luke 9:20):

“That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:15).

“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” (John 3:16-17).

“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).

JESUS says: “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).

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

“He that hateth me hateth my Father also” (John 15:23). “[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).

“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the [DEVIL SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING]” (1 John 3:8).

“And the Devil that deceived them was cast into the [LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE], where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever. And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name” (Revelation 20:11, 14:11).

“He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. [AND HE THAT TAKETH NOT HIS CROSS, AND FOLLOWETH AFTER ME, IS NOT WORTHY OF ME]. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it” (Matthew 10:37-39).

“He that rejecteth me, and [RECEIVETH NOT MY WORDS], hath one that judgeth him: [THE WORD THAT I HAVE SPOKEN, THE SAME SHALL JUDGE HIM IN THE LAST DAY]” (John 12:48).

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

“Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find [FAITH] on the earth? (Luke 18:8).

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the [LATTER TIMES SOME SHALL DEPART FROM THE FAITH], giving heed to seducing spirits, and [DOCTRINES OF DEVILS]; [SPEAKING LIES IN HYPOCRISY]; having their conscience seared with a hot iron” (1 Timothy 4:1-2); “ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:7).

“Now the just shall [LIVE BY FAITH]: but [IF ANY MAN DRAWS BACK, MY SOUL SHALL HAVE NO PLEASURE IN HIM]. But [WE ARE NOT OF THEM WHO DRAW BACK] unto perdition; [BUT OF THEM THAT BELIEVE TO THE SAVING OF THE SOUL]” (Hebrews 10:38–39).

“For the [PREACHING OF THE CROSS] is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are [SAVED] it is the [POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 1:19).

Do you know where this road ends?

“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall [DIRECT THY PATHS]” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

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

Do you TRUST GOD?

On the many roads of this lifetime there will be many twists and turns, even roads that seemingly are leading to no where; at every twist and turn we must ALWAYS TRUST the LORD God.

“Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies” (Psalm 40:4).

“Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is” (Jeremiah 17:7).

“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him” (Nahum 1:7).

“O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee” (Psalm 84:12).

“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

“Trust in the LORD, and do good; Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore” (Psalm 37:1, 3-4).
Trust in God written on desert road

We must ALWAYS have on the WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD.

We must be prepared every day for the Last Day that we are alive in this world to defend against the works of the devil and his fallen angels (Revelation 12:4, 9).

Peter, a disciple of Jesus reminds and warned us to “be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

The Apostle Paul also expressed, said: “For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things” (Philippians 3:18–19).

“Wherefore take unto you the whole [ARMOUR OF GOD], that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the [WORD OF GOD]” (Ephesians 6:13-17).

“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the [ARMOUR OF LIGHT]” (Romans 13:11-12).

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; let us keep strong and “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) enduring every day this lifetime to THE END (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 11:18, 20:12-15).

We must NEVER get Comfortable in this world:

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

This world of FOOLISHNESS is coming to an END (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 11:18).

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world” (1 John 2:15).

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2).

“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).

“[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).

“[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).

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne” (Revelation 3:20-21).

“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).

“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” (Revelation 22:16).

“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 22:20-21).
