LOVE rather than Hate.

“No man hath seen God at any time. [IF WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER, GOD DWELLETH IN US, AND HIS LOVE IS PERFECTED IN US]” (1 John 4:12).

“If a man say, I love God, and [HATETH HIS BROTHER, HE IS A LIAR]: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, [HOW CAN HE LOVE GOD WHOM HE HATH NOT SEEN]? (1 John 5:20).

The Apostle Paul explained, 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).

“[FOLLOW PEACE WITH ALL MEN, AND HOLINESS, WITHOUT WHICH NO MAN SHALL SEE] the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14).

“Hatred stirreth up strifes: but [LOVE COVERETH ALL SINS]” (Proverbs 10:12).

LOVE OF THE FATHER or Love of the World?

“[LOVE NOT THE WORLD, NEITHER THE THINGS THAT ARE IN THE 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).

“[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).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: “[THIS IS THE WORK OF GOD, THAT YE BELIEVE ON HIM WHOM HE HATH SENT]” (John 6:27-29).

“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).

“[WHO IS HE THAT OVERCOMETH THE WORLD, BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD]? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth” (1 John 5:5–6).

“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.

[HE THAT BELIEVETH ON THE SON OF GOD HATH THE WITNESS IN HIMSELF]: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

[AND THIS IS THE RECORD, THAT GOD HATH GIVEN TO US ETERNAL LIFE, AND THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON]” (1 John 5:9-11).

“[EVERY GOOD GIFT AND EVERY PERFECT GIFT IS FROM ABOVE, AND COMETH DOWN FROM THE FATHER OF LIGHTS], with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17).

“Therefore as [BY THE OFFENCE OF ONE] judgment came upon all men to [CONDEMNATION]; even so [BY THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF ONE THE FREE GIFT] came upon all men unto [JUSTIFICATION OF LIFE]” (Romans 5:18).

“[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).
Thanksgiving James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above.

To BELIEVE the word of GOD or to be Deceived by the world?

“[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).

“[FOR MANY DECEIVERS] are [ENTERED INTO THE WORLD], who [CONFESS NOT THAT JESUS CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH]. This is a deceiver and an antichrist” (2 John 1:7).

“[WHOSOEVER SHALL CONFESS THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD, GOD DWELLETH IN HIM, AND HE IN GOD]” (1 John 4:15).

“[FOR GOD SENT NOT HIS SON INTO THE WORLD] to condemn the world; but [THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED]” (John 3:17).

“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.

[HE THAT BELIEVETH ON THE SON OF GOD HATH THE WITNESS IN HIMSELF]: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

[AND THIS IS THE RECORD, THAT GOD HATH GIVEN TO US ETERNAL LIFE, AND THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON]” (1 John 5:9-11).

“[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).

“And with all [DECEIVABLENESS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN THEM THAT PERISH]; because they [RECEIVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED]” (2 Thessalonians 2:10).

“[THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD] not perish, but [HAVE ETERNAL LIFE]” (John 3:15).

“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.

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 22:16, 20-21).
For God So Loved The World That He Gave His Only Son, So That Wh

The word of God or the world?

“Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read” (Isaiah 34:16).

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for [INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS]” (2 Timothy 3:16).
Our Lord Jesus says: “It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” (Luke 4:4).

“The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).

“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63).

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14).

When time ends at the End of the World, “[TRUTH] shall spring out of the earth; and [RIGHTEOUSNESS] shall look down from heaven” (Psalm 85:11).

What is TRUTH?

Our Lord Jesus says: “Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice” (John 18:37).
“[MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, AND I KNOW THEM, AND THEY FOLLOW ME: AND I GIVE UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one” (John 10:27-30).

“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).
Holy Book And Shine

JESUS is the Word of GOD and THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. [AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, AND DWELT AMONG US], (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:1-2, 14).

“BELOVED, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world” (1 John 4:1-3).

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds” (2 John 1:7, 9-11).

“[WHOSOEVER DENIETH THE SON, THE SAME HATH NOT THE FATHER]” (1 John 2:23).

“Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son” (2 John 1:9).

“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).

“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these [LAST DAYS SPOKEN UNTO US BY HIS SON, WHOM HE HATH APPOINTED HEIR OF ALL THINGS, by whom also he [MADE THE WORLDS]” (Hebrews 1:1–2).

“Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen” (Ephesians 3:21).

Doctrine of CHRIST (Hebrews 6:1-7) or church doctrines?

Too much time is wasted debating, dissenting and disputing the word of God instead of building the house of GOD, “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).

Notwithstanding the proliferation of religions and church denominations, there is only one building of the Kingdom of God through the Holy Spirit, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone; in whom all the building fitly framed together to grow to the end of time unto a holy temple in the Lord (Ephesians 2:20–22).

“For there is [ONE GOD], and [ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MEN], the man [CHRIST JESUS]: who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).

At the End of the World, it is not a specific religion or church denomination, as it is the doctrines of many that will be redeemed from this earth. We are to beware of adhering to the doctrines of devils and commandments of men; we must obtain knowledge of and obey the word of God. JESUS warned of this very fact when he sent his angel with letters to the early seven churches in the revelation of John (Revelation 1:11).

“[EVERY GOOD GIFT AND EVERY PERFECT GIFT IS FROM ABOVE, AND COMETH DOWN FROM THE FATHER OF LIGHTS, WITH WHOM IS NO VARIABLENESS, NEITHER SHADOW OF TURNING]” (James 1:17).

“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. [WHOSOEVER TRANSGRESSETH, AND ABIDETH NOT IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, HATH NOT GOD]. [HE THAT ABIDETH IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, HE HATH BOTH THE FATHER AND THE SON]. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds” (2 John 1:7, 9-11).

“[ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM, ONE GOD AND FATHER OF ALL], who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ” (Ephesians 4:5-7).

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

DOCTRINE OF CHRIST or Doctrine of Devils?

We must never forget that the devil, aka Satan transformed himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14); and there are churches masquerading as houses of God. These churches have signs and ensigns which range from a single eye, obelisks, pyramids, black and white checkered floors and other known representations that are readily seen today in church publications, online live media, and on the inside and outside of buildings. For this reason, the Holy Scriptures warned: “Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil” (Ecclesiastes 5:1).

“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).

When King Jesus was here on this earth he was asked about his doctrine.

“Jesus answered them, and said, ‘[MY DOCTRINE IS NOT MINE, BUT HIS THAT SENT ME]. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him’” (John 7:16-18).

“Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. [HE THAT ABIDETH IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, HE HATH BOTH THE FATHER AND THE SON]” (2 John 1:9).

Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles who preached the GOSPEL OF 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 I am not ashamed of the [GOSPEL OF CHRIST]: for [IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION TO EVERYONE THAT BELIEVETH]; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).

“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).

“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).

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (2 Thessalonians 3:18).

BEWARE of Prosperity Preaching?

“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).

Our Lord Jesus says: “[BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS], which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? [WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM]” (Matthew 7:15-16, 20).

“[NO SERVANT CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS]: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. [YE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON]” (Luke 16:13).

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, ‘[VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT A RICH MAN SHALL HARDLY ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN]’. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” (Matthew 19:23-24).

“BELOVED, [BELIEVE NOT EVERY SPIRIT, BUT TRY THE SPIRITS WHETHER THEY ARE OF GOD]: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: [EVERY SPIRIT THAT CONFESSETH THAT JESUS CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH IS OF GOD]: And [EVERY SPIRIT THAT CONFESSETH NOT THAT JESUS CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH IS NOT OF GOD: AND THIS IS THAT SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST], whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world” (1 John 4:1-3).

“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist” (2 John 1:7).

“[FOR SUCH ARE FALSE APOSTLES, DECEITFUL WORKERS, TRANSFORMING THEMSELVES INTO THE APOSTLES OF CHRIST]. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; [WHOSE END SHALL BE ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS]” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

“[TAKE HEED, AND BEWARE OF COVETOUSNESS]: for [A MAN’S LIFE CONSISTETH NOT IN THE ABUNDANCE OF THE THINGS] which he possesseth” (Luke 12:15).

“Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:31).

KNOWLEDGE of GOD and KNOWLEDGE of the TRUTH.

Smart phones, tablets and other devices are becoming the mainstay of life in this world, so much so that everywhere there is countless people having their heads looking down at their devoces typing, texting or talking.

With time in our hands and access to information just a click away, obtaining KNOWLEDGE OF GOD and KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH should be embraced before it is too late.

“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the [KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH]” (1 Timothy 2:3-4).

“[AWAKE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS], and sin not; for some have not the [KNOWLEDGE OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 15:34).

“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and [KNOWLEDGE OF GOD]!” (Romans 11:33-36).

“HEAR INSTRUCTION, AND BE WISE, AND REFUSE IT NOT” (Proverbs 8:33).

“[ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY INSPIRATION OF GOD], and is profitable for [DOCTRINE, FOR REPROOF, FOR CORRECTION, FOR INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS]” (2 Timothy 3:16).

“For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright” (Psalm 11:7). “The LORD liveth, [IN TRUTH, IN JUDGMENT, AND IN RIGHTEOUSNESS]” (Jeremiah 4:2).

“[ALL THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH ARE IN RIGHTEOUSNESS]; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge” (Proverbs 8:8–9).

“[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).

The righteous will flourish as the palm tree (Psalm 92:12).

When time ends, “Truth shall spring out of the earth; and [RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL LOOK DOWN FROM HEAVEN]” (Psalm 85:11).

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

We live for our LORD God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

“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).

“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]. 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 3:16-18).

“O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD” (Jeremiah 22:29).

“[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).

“[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).
