We must be very CAREFUL to NOT REJECT the word of GOD: To take up the CROSS of JESUS CHRIST does not mean that we are worshiping the CROSS!

To take up the CROSS is our FAITH in JESUS CHRIST BELIEVING in ETERNAL LIFE by the POWER OF GOD who raised HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON from the dead after his Crucifixion and Death on the CROSS at CALVARY (Luke 23:33) (John 3:16-18)!

Our Lord JESUS is very clear when he says: “If any man will [COME AFTER ME, LET HIM DENY HIMSELF], and [TAKE UP HIS CROSS DAILY], and follow me” (Luke 9:23).

“And [HE THAT TAKETH NOT HIS CROSS], and [FOLLOWETH AFTER ME, IS NOT WORTHY OF ME]” (Matthew 10:38).

“[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).

“[NO MAN CAN COME TO ME], except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and [I WILL RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).

“[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).

We must always remember, the words spoken by Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles, saying, “[IF WE SUFFER, WE SHALL ALSO REIGN WITH HIM: IF WE DENY HIM, HE ALSO WILL DENY US]” (2 Timothy 2:12).

“[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).

“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 ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).

“[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. [BUT IF THE SPIRIT OF HIM THAT RAISED UP JESUS FROM THE DEAD DWELL IN YOU, HE THAT RAISED UP CHRIST FROM THE DEAD SHALL ALSO QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODIES BY HIS SPIRIT THAT DWELLETH IN YOU]” (Romans 8:9-11).

“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, [THE WORD OF FAITH], which we preach; [THAT IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED]. For with [THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS]; and with [THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:14).

“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.

“[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).

“[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).

“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 1:21).

“[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).
