GOD gave Man dominion over the earth!

How is it that the Devil, aka Satan get into the detail?

“IN the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And God said, ‘Let us make [MAN] in our image, after our likeness: and [LET THEM HAVE DOMINION OVER THE FISH OF THE SEA, AND OVER THE FOWL OF THE AIR, AND OVER THE CATTLE, AND OVER ALL THE EARTH], and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created [MAN] in his own image, in the image of God created he him; [MALE AND FEMALE CREATED HE THEM]” (Genesis 1:1, 26-27).

“The Lord God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof [THOU SHALT SURELY DIE]” (Genesis 2:16–17).

“And the serpent said unto the woman, ‘[YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE]’” (Genesis 3:4).
Here is the deception: the “crooked serpent” (Job 26:10), the devil, aka Satan stated correctly to Eve, “Yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” However, the statement “Ye shall not surely die” was not what God told Adam. These words were a lie! The words of God are truth!

“He that committeth sin is of the devil; [FOR THE DEVIL SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING]. For this purpose the [SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED], that he might [DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL]” (1 John 3:8).

Our Lord Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: “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).

Therefore, we must not be deceived by the lies of the devil, aka Satan and let us keep in remembrance when our Lord Jesus was here on earth, being in the Spirit, he took him up to a high mountain and showed him the kingdoms of this world (Matthew 4:8), and said:

“All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me” (Matthew 4:9).
Jesus said; ”Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, [THOU SHALT WORSHIP THE LORD THY GOD, AND HIM ONLY SHALT THOU SERVE]” (Matthew 4:10).

“I AM the LORD thy God. Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:2–3).

“For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods [OF THE NATIONS ARE IDOLS]: but the LORD made the heavens” (Psalm 96:4-5).

“Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen” (Romans 15:33).

We must worship ONLY the LORD God.

“IN the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” Genesis 1:1).

“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).

“I AM the LORD thy God. Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:2–3).

“[THOU ART MY GOD, AND I WILL PRAISE THEE: THOU ART MY GOD, I WILL EXALT THEE].

O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever” (Psalm 118:27-29).

Thanksgiving Psalm 118:28 You are my God, and I will give thanks to you.

Come out of the Darkness into the LIGHT!

“[JESUS CHRIST] the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), 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).

“[FOR I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST: FOR IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION TO EVERY ONE THAT BELIEVETH]; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the [LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST], who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who [COMMANDED THE LIGHT TO SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS], hath shined in our hearts, [TO GIVE THE LIGHT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE GLORY OF GOD IN THE FACE OF JESUS CHRIST]” (2 Corinthians 4:3-6).

“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).

“BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THOU SHALT BE SAVED, AND THY HOUSE: (Acts 16:31)

“[HE THAT HATH THE SON HATH LIFE]; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that [BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF THE SON OF GOD; THAT YE MAY KNOW THAT YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE], and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God” (1 John 5:12-13).

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Philippians 4:23).

REJOICE this day because it is ‘LIGHT’ FRIDAY!

“[THIS IS THE DAY] which the LORD hath made; [WE WILL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT]” (Psalm 118:24).

Untold numbers of people rejoice for this day, and there is great zest and zeal even euphoria on “Black Friday” to SAVE MONEY and take advantage of huge discounts on items on sale.

However, every human being would be wise to have the same zest and zeal even euphoria to seek the only the person who can SAVE SOULS because there is coming a day on this day when it will be the BLACKNESS OF DARKNESS forever (Revelation 11:18)!

“Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! To what end is it for you? The day of the LORD is darkness, and not light. Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? Even very dark, and no brightness in it” (Amos 5:18, 20).

On the Last Day, there will be the ONLY PERSON WHO WILL GIVE LIGHT to escape as emphasized by Jude the “…blackness of darkness…” (Jude 1:13). His name is JESUS, the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD (John 3:16-18).

On the Last Day, for those who do not have the LIGHT, Jesus says: “And cast ye the unprofitable servant into [OUTER DARKNESS]: there shall be [WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH]” (Matthew 25:30).

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).

“[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).

Every day that passes by in this earth is ONE DAY CLOSER to the END OF THE WORLD, and [THE RETURN] of our Lord, Savior and King Jesus (Matthew 13:37–43, 24:1-3). However, Jesus says: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).

Therefore, we REJOICE THIS DAY because we have the LIGHT.

JESUS 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).

“I am with you alway, even unto the [END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Philippians 4:23).

GOOD FRIDAY versus Black Friday?

Over two thousands years ago, God sent a man from heaven to give his life for a ransom for the human race to redeem them from the darkness in this world (Isaiah 60:1). (Colossians 1:12–13); “[TO OPEN THEIR EYES, AND TO TURN THEM FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT], and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in Jesus” (Acts 26:18).

“[THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE]” (John 3:15).

Yet today, untold numbers of people would rather line up for the vain things of this world rather than lining up for the promise of ETERNAL LIFE.

“[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).

“[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).

“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 CHRIST] the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), 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).

“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

“[I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND, BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE], Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).

On this day, Thanksgiving Day, if GOD, the FATHER is not being giving THANKS, it is pointedly UNTHANKFULNESS!

Thanksgiving Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks to God the Father for everything

Our FATHER in HEAVEN we thank you for giving us your ONLY BEGOTTEN SON JESUS CHRIST for the promise of ETERNAL LIFE.

The Apostle Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles explained, said: “For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to [PREACH THE GOSPEL]: not with wisdom of words, lest the [CROSS OF CHRIST’ should be made of none effect. For the [PREACHING OF THE CROSS] is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are [SAVED] it is the [POWER OF GOD].

For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of [PREACHING TO SAVE THEM THAT BELIEVE]” (1 Corinthians 1:17-21).

“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son” (Colossians 1:12-13).

“[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).

“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 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).

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

Our Lord Jesus explains doing the COMMANDMENTS OF GOD (Matthew 5:17-18, 18:23, 19:17, 22:34-40) (Revelation 22:13-14).

When our Lord Jesus was here on earth at many points in time the Scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees doubted that he was the Son of God, and often tried to discredit him. Notably a lawyer came to him asking:

‘Master, which is the great commandment in the law?’

Jesus said unto him, ‘[THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, AND WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY MIND].’

This is the [FIRST AND GREAT COMMANDMENT]. And the second is like unto it, [THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF]. [ON THESE TWO COMMANDMENTS HANG ALL THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS]” (Matthew 22:34-40).

Our Lord Jesus was very clear when he said: “¶ Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5:17-18).

Furthermore, when a young man wanted to know what he must do to inherit eternal life, Jesus answered: “[IF THOU WILT ENTER INTO LIFE, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS]” (Matthew 19:17). The young man then wanted to know which commandments.

“Jesus said, ‘[THOU SHALT DO NO MURDER, THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, THOU SHALT NOT STEAL, THOU SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS, HONOUR THY FATHER AND THY MOTHER: AND, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF]” (Matthew 18-23).

Our Lord Jesus Christ chose Paul, whose name was Saul to be the apostle to the Gentiles (Acts 9:1-15): “For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office” (Romans 11:13), echoed the keeping of these commandments hen he said:

“Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: [FOR HE THAT LOVETH ANOTHER HATH FULFILLED THE LAW].

For this, [THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, THOU SHALT NOT KILL, THOU SHALT NOT STEAL, THOU SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS, THOU SHALT NOT COVET]; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, [THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF].

Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore [LOVE IS THE FULFILLING OF THE LAW]” (Romans 13:8-10).

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. [BLESSED ARE THEY THAT DO HIS COMMANDMENTS, THAT THEY MAY HAVE RIGHT TO THE TREE OF LIFE, AND MAY ENTER IN THROUGH THE GATES INTO THE CITY]” (Revelation 22:13-14).

“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” (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).

GOD’s two key PROMISES to human beings: Rainbow and C R O S S.

After Noah and his family came out of the ark after the great flood, God promised that the earth will not perish again by a great flood. God declared to Noah:

“[I DO SET MY BOW IN THE CLOUD], and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And [I WILL REMEMBER MY COVENANT], which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and [THE WATERS SHALL NO MORE BECOME A FLOOD TO DESTROY ALL FLESH]” (Genesis 9:13, 15).

God promised to to save human beings who believe in his only begotten Son before heaven and earth perishes by fire on the Last Day.

“[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 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).

“[WHEREBY THE WORLD THAT THEN WAS, BEING OVERFLOWED WITH WATER, PERISHED]: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, [BY THE SAME WORD ARE KEPT IN STORE, RESERVED UNTO FIRE AGAINST THE DAY OF JUDGMENT AND PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN]” (2 Peter 3:6-7).

“The Lord [IS NOT SLACK CONCERNING HIS PROMISE], as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that [ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE].

But [THE DAY OF THE LORD WILL COME AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT; IN THE WHICH THE HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY WITH A GREAT NOISE, AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH FERVENT HEAT, THE EARTH ALSO AND THE WORKS THAT ARE THEREIN SHALL BE BURNED UP].

Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?” (2 Peter 3:9-12).

“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).

Let us keep the FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST to the END. “For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).
