Fight the GOOD Fight of FAITH to lay hold on ETERNAL LIFE (2 Timothy 4:7-8).

“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. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace” (Ephesians 6:12-15).

Biblical Phrase From Psalm,typography For Print Or Use As Poster

P R A Y: “…pray without ceasing…” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Whatever we are facing this day:
-Unemployed and looking for employment;
-Not enough money to pay our bills;
-Little or no food to eat;
-Just lost a family member or loved one;
-Lonely and would like to get married;
-Problems in our household;
-Problems at work;
-Suffering illness;
-and so on.

Whatever we are facing this day we must pray to God in the name of Jesus Christ in truth and in Spirit, and believe in our heart that our prayers will be answered.

Our Lord, Savior and King Jesus Christ says: “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).

“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23–24).

The Apostle Paul remined us to “…pray without ceasing…” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) said: “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:14-16).

The Cross 25

From Lifetime to L I F E.

To ‘cross the bridge’ from this Lifetime to obtain LIFE we must BELIEVE in the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD.

“[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).

“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).

“For as the Father rises 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 honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father which hath sent him.

For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; and hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man” (John 5: 21–23, 26–27).

The only begotten Son of God, “Jesus saith unto him, ‘[I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME]’” (John 14:6).

Jesus Said To Him, "i Am The Way, The Truth, And The Life. No On

CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST.

In the storms of this lifetime we are always confident having the CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST, the only begotten Son of God, “The Christ of God” (Luke 9:20). who gave his life for all human beings.

“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).

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

“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).

“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).

ETERNAL LIFE or Billionaire?

We live in a world where the pinnacle of success is having to be crowned with the status of a billionaire. But, do not be deceived!

Let us be reminded every day of our Lord JESUS in the last days before his crucifixion when “A certain scribe came, and said unto Jesus, ‘Master; I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.’ And Jesus saith unto him, ‘The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but [THE SON OF MAN HATH NOT WHERE TO LAY HIS HEAD]’” (Matthew 8:19–20).

Just imagine these are words of the most POWERFUL HUMAN BEING confirmed by the word of God when he said, “All things that the Father hath are mine” (John 16:15). That is, most powerful person, not by the illusory or vain standards of this world, but, by the POWER OF GOD when he also said: “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18).

“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).

“Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake” (John 14:10=11).

JESUS is the only human being with the POWER TO GIVE EVERLASTING LIFE (John 3:16-18). Therefore, live every day with our hearts set on getting to EVERLASTING HABITATIONS IN THE NEW HEAVENS AND NEW EARTH TO COME AT THE END OF TIME.

Finally, let us also be reminded how Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles who preached the gospel of Jesus 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 ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).
JESUS says: “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. 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 1:8-9).

Living by GOD’S COMMANDMENTS.

Many people incorrectly believe that being under grace means that we are not to abide by God’s commandments. When a young lawyer came to Jesus and asked him a question, tempting him, saying:

“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 22:36-40).

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).

Jesus told his disciples saying: “If ye love me, keep my commandments. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him” (John 14:15, 21).

The Apostle Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles further explained about God’s commandments when 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).

“For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office” (Romans 11:13).

Do you believe in the only Begotten Son of God?

“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).

Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God says:

“Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life” (John 5:39–40).

“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. [BELIEVEST THOU THIS]?” (John 11:25-26).

“‘[BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THOU SHALT BE SAVED, AND THY HOUSE]’” (Acts 16:31).

“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).
