“IT is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night” (Psalm 92:1-2).

“My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity. For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield” (Psalm 5:3-5, 12).

“The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous” (Proverbs 15:29).

Today, a few words of comfort to those who are unemployed, in financial distress, lonely, weary, sick, frightened about life circumstances or simply disillusioned about life: Let us be reminded what Paul, the apostle said: “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Many throughout time have doubted and said, in essence, “This is easier said than done.”

However, Jesus emphasized, saying: “And I say unto you, ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Luke 11:9–10).

Be strong and pray to God in Jesus’ name. Also, be reminded what Jesus also said: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23–24); and keep the FAITH: “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3).

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

Give God the FATHER THANKS for ALL THINGS and for giving his ONLY BEGOTTEN SON (John 3:16-18).

If we know to say “Thank you” to another human being when an act of kindness is done for us, then we MUST GIVE THANKS TO GOD because he CREATED ALL THINGS (Genesis 1:1).

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

Furthermore, we must especially GIVE GOD THANKS for the promise of ETERNAL LIFE through JESUS CHRIST.

“[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]” (John 3:16).

“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).

“[FOR AS THE FATHER RAISETH UP THE DEAD, AND QUICKENETH THEM; EVEN SO THE SON QUICKENETH WHOM HE WILL. FOR THE FATHER JUDGETH NO MAN, BUT HATH COMMITTED ALL JUDGMENT UNTO THE SON]: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, [HE THAT HEARETH MY WORD, AND BELIEVETH ON HIM THAT SENT ME, HATH EVERLASTING LIFE, AND] shall not come into condemnation; but [IS PASSED FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE]” (John 5:21-24).

“Who hath saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began” (2 Timothy 1:9).

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).

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Philippians 4:23).
For God So Loved The World That He Gave His Only Son, So That Wh

“I am child of GOD and of JESUS CHRIST”! (Matthew 5:8-9) (Romans 10:8-10) (1 John 4:15) (1 Corinthians 1:18-19).

“FOR YE ARE ALL THE CHILDREN OF GOD BY FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS” (Galatians 3:26).

“I will NEVER be a friend of this world!”

“[FOR THE WISDOM OF THIS WORLD IS FOOLISHNESS WITH GOD]” (1 Corinthians 3:19).

To be a friend of this world is to be a friend of the devil, aka satan the prince of this world!

“[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).

To do the WILL OF GOD is to BELIEVE and to LIVE by the word of GOD.

“And this is his commandment, That [WE SHOULD BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER], as he gave us commandment” (1 John 3:23).

“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).

“[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).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “It is written, that [MAN SHALL] not [LIVE BY] bread alone, but by [EVERY WORD OF GOD]” (Luke 4:4).

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

“[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 118:28-29).
Thanksgiving Psalm 118:28 You are my God, and I will give thanks to you.

PEACE OF GOD or World Peace?

Is there going to be world peace in 2020?

Every year that passes by in this world into a new year, the ambitious goal is that one day there will be world peace.

The Apostle Paul expressly said, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

“For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil” (Romans 13:3).

The god of this world, the prince of this world, the prince of the power of the air, the dragon, that old serpent, the Devil, also known as Satan, the wicked one, the fallen once anointed angel, Lucifer, and all his fallen angels which are locked in chains of darkness continue to deceive humans into believing that one day there is going to be a New World order which will usher in world peace on this earth.

Do not fall into the web of deceit and lies of the prince of this world “because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Revelation 12:12).

“[FOR WHEN THEY SHALL SAY, PEACE AND SAFETY; THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMETH UPON THEM], as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3). “Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly” (Isaiah 33:7)

“The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another” (Psalm 75:3, 7).

“We look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).

Seek the PEACE that is above: Seek the PEACE OF GOD.

“And the [PEACE OF GOD], which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).

“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:23).

“And let the [PEACE OF GOD RULE IN YOUR HEARTS], to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Colossians 3:15-16).

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

T I M E is coming to an E N D (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 11:18).

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2).

At the end of the world, on the return of Jesus there will be a harvest of the earth (Matthew 25:41, 46).

“That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past; God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work” (Ecclesiastes 3:15, 17).

“God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work” (Ecclesiastes 3:17).

“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).

Jesus, the name of the only begotten Son of God, “…that man whom he hath ordained…” says: “[THE TIME IS FULFILLED], and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15). “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke 5:32).

“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).

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

“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” (2 Peter 3:9).

“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).

“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).

The Book Of Revelation

We must PRAY DAILY to our FATHER in HEAVEN in the name of JESUS to keep FAITHFUL every day to the END OF THE WORLD: “For surely there is an [END]” (Proverbs 23:18).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “When thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly” (Matthew 6:6).

“When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matthew 6:7-8).
“[AFTER THIS MANNER THEREFORE PRAY YE]: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
[GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD].
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:913).

“[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).

“Hath not God [CHOSEN THE POOR] of this world [RICH IN FAITH], and [HEIRS OF THE KINGDOM] which he hath promised to them that love him?” (James 2:5).

“FOR YE ARE ALL THE CHILDREN OF GOD BY FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS” (Galatians 3:26).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “[BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS: FOR THEY SHALL BE CALLED THE CHILDREN OF GOD]. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8-9).

“[BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH ARE PERSECUTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS’ SAKE]: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10).

“[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).

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and [THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST], then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).

“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).

“Be ye also patient; stablish your heart: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh” (James 5:8).

“Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not” (Luke 12:40).

“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 1:7).
Redemption 2

The CROSS of JESUS CHRIST (John 3:16).

Every day we must take up the CROSS of JESUS CHRIST.

“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).

“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).

“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).

“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).

“Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:13, 15-16).

“Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen” (Romans 15:33).
what does Good Friday mean?

We are FAITHFUL SHEEP of our LORD God and our Lord JESUS CHRIST.

“FOR YE ARE ALL THE CHILDREN OF GOD BY FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS” (Galatians 3:26).

“God is the LORD, which hath shewed us [LIGHT]:” (Psalm 118:27).

“Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is his name” (Jeremiah 33:2).

“The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all” (Psalm 103:19).

“THE LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever” (Psalm 23:1-6).

Jesus says: “[I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD]: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep” (John 10:11).

“[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).

“[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).

REJOICE ALWAYS in GOD in the name of JESUS CHRIST.

“This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will [REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT]” (Psalm 118:24).

The Apostle Paul said: “[REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAY: AND AGAIN I SAY, REJOICE].
Let your moderation be known unto all men. [THE LORD IS AT HAND].

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:4-7).

“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. [IN EVERY THING GIVE THANKS]: for this is the [WILL OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS CONCERNING YOU]” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).

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