The CROSS.

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

“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).

And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:24-29).

“[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.

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).

“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 none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living” (Romans 14:7-9).

While the road is still open, find this man and get on this road before it is too late!

“[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8) who says:

“Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is” (Mark 13:33).

“But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

[AND WHAT I SAY UNTO YOU I SAY UNTO ALL, WATCH]” (Mark 13:32, 34-37).

“[ENTER YE IN AT THE STRAIT GATE]: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: [BECAUSE STRAIT IS THE GATE, AND NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT]” (Matthew 713-14).

And if I go and prepare a place for you, [I WILL COME AGAIN, AND RECEIVE YOU UNTO MYSELF; THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YE MAY BE ALSO].
And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
Thomas saith unto him, ‘Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?’

Jesus saith unto him, ‘[I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME]’” (John 14:2-6).

“[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.

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 2:16–17).

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

“[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).

Our Lord JESUS warns, says: “AND [TAKE HEED TO YOURSELVES, LEST AT ANY TIME] your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and [CARES OF THIS LIFE], and ]SO THAT DAY COME UPON YOU UNAWARES]. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

[WATCH YE THEREFORE, AND PRAY ALWAYS], that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to [STAND] before the Son of man” (Luke 21:34–36).
