PRAY. PRAY. PRAY: PRAY without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

We must continue to help one another as time goes by in this world.

“The LORD is far from the wicked: but he [HEARETH THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS]” (Proverbs 15:29).

James, the brother of Jesus encourages, saying: “[CONFESS YOUR FAULTS ONE TO ANOTHER, AND PRAY ONE FOR ANOTHER], that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16).

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, “[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).

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

“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).

Do you have LIFE?

To have LIFE is to LIVE FOREVER IN HEAVEN WITH GOD! (John 3:15-18) (2 Corinthians 5:15) (1 John 5:11).

“[FOR YE ARE DEAD, AND YOUR LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD]” (Colossians 3:3).

“[FOR HE IS NOT A GOD OF THE DEAD, BUT OF THE LIVING]: for all live unto him” (Luke 20:38).

“But without [FAITH] it is impossible to please him: for [HE THAT COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS], and that [HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM]” (Hebrews 11:6).

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, [THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN]” (Hebrews 11:1).

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

“[IF ANY MAN HAVE AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR]” (Revelation 13:9).

“[NO MAN HATH SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME; THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON], which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” (John 1:18).

“[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).

“And this is the record, that God [HATH GIVEN TO US ETERNAL LIFE, AND THIS LIFE] is in his Son” (1 John 5:11).

“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. [FOR AS IN ADAM ALL DIE, EVEN SO IN CHRIST SHALL ALL BE MADE ALIVE]” (1 Corinthians 15:21–22).

“[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).

JESUS CHRIST 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).

“These things have I written unto you that [BELIEVE ON THE NAME] of the Son of God; that ye may know [THAT YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE], and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God” (1 John 5:13).

“[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).

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).

“[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8). “Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, [WORLD WITHOUT END]. Amen” (Ephesians 3:21).

By the word of GOD Children of GOD will NEVER SEE DEATH (John 8:51, 10:27-30) (Revelation 2:10):

We must not try to figure out what happens when our body dies; we must just BELIEVE and TRUST in God: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).

“Blessed be the LORD, [WHO DAILY LOADETH US WITH BENEFITS], even the God of our salvation. Selah. He that is our God is the God of [SALVATION]; and unto God the LORD belong the [ISSUES FROM DEATH]” (Psalm 68:19-20).

“Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it” (Ecclesiastes 12:7).

“His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish” (Psalm 146:4).

The Apostle Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles said: “[FOR TO ME TO LIVE IS CHRIST, AND TO DIE IS GAIN]” (Philippians 1:21).

“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).

“[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8), the only begotten Son of God says:

“[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).

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, [WHEN THE DEAD SHALL HEAR THE VOICE] of the Son of God: and [THEY THAT HEAR SHALL LIVE]” (John 5:25).

“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 5:24).

“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: [BE THOU FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH], and I will give thee a [CROWN OF LIFE]” (Revelation 2:10).

“He that loveth his life shall lose it; and [HE THAT HATETH HIS LIFE IN THIS WORLD SHALL KEEP IT UNTO LIFE ETERNAL]. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be” (Matthew 12:24-26).

“[AND FEAR NOT THEM WHICH KILL THE BODY], [BUT ARE NOT ABLE TO KILL THE SOUL]: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

 “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 11:25-27).

“[I AM THE DOOR: BY ME IF ANY MAN ENTER IN, HE SHALL BE SAVED, AND SHALL GO IN AND OUT, AND FIND PASTURE]” (John 10:9).

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall [NEVER SEE DEATH]” (John 8:51).

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

Mans Journey of the Soul

We must DAILY take up THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST and be ON GUARD because both seen and unseen ENEMIES OF THE CROSS are EVERYWHERE in this world (Luke 9:23) (Ephesians 6:12) (Philippians 3:18–19).

Peter, a disciple of JESUS said: “[BE SOBER, BE VIGILANT]; because your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

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).

“[FOR MANY WALK, OF WHOM] I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they [ARE THE ENEMIES OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST]: whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, [WHO MIND EARTHLY THINGS]” (Philippians 3:18–19).

“[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; [ABOVE ALL, TAKING THE SHIELD OF FAITH], wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. [AND TAKE THE HELMET OF SALVATION, AND THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, WHICH IS THE WORD OF GOD]” (Ephesians 6:13-17).

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

“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).

“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).

Our Lord JESUS 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).

“In the world [YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION]: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

“[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).

Faith.

We must keep the FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST whatever comes from this day forward to the END OF THE WORLD (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 11:18).

START, STAY and STEADFAST with JESUS to the END.

Now, there are untold numbers of people in this world are now living in FEAR and are wondering when this COVID-19 global pandemic is going to end and life will get back to normal. But, DO NOT BE DECEIVED because life on this earth is only GOING TO GET WORST leading up to the GTREAT TRIBULATION (Matthew 24:21).

We must NOT PANIC with fear but PRAY ALWAYS and PRAY WITHOUT CEASING (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)! We must NEVER TURN BACK from FOLLOWING JESUS (Luke 9:62). “For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).

Jesus says: “[FEAR NONE OF THOSE THINGS WHICH THOU SHALT SUFFER]: behold, [THE DEVIL SHALL CAST SOME OF YOU INTO PRISON], that ye may be tried; [AND YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION TEN DAYS]: be thou [FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH], and [I WILL GIVE THEE A CROWN OF LIFE]” (Revelation 2:10).

“And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. [IN YOUR PATIENCE POSSESS YE YOUR SOULS]” (Luke 21:17-19). ”And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away” (Revelation 2:10) (1 Peter 5:4).

“[AND FEAR NOT THEM WHICH KILL THE BODY, BUT ARE NOT ABLE TO KILL THE SOUL]: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

Believe the word of God because Jesus says: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, [IF A MAN KEEP MY SAYING, HE SHALL NEVER SEE DEATH]” (John 8:51).

“He that loveth his life shall lose it; and [HE THAT HATETH HIS LIFE IN THIS WORLD SHALL KEEP IT UNTO LIFE ETERNAL]. If any m4an serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall 4also my servant be” (Matthew 12:24-26).

“No man, having put his hand to the plough, and [LOOKING BACK, IS FIT] for the Kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62).

“[NOW THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH: BUT IF ANY MAN DRAWS BACK, MY SOUL SHALL HAVE NO PLEASURE IN HIM]. But [WE ARE NOT OF THEM WHO DRAW BACK] unto perdition; [BUT OF THEM THAT BELIEVE TO THE SAVING OF THE SOUL]” (Hebrews 10:38–39).

“The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil” (John 7:7).

“In the world [YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION]: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

“[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).

“The Lord knoweth them that are his” (2 Timothy 2:19). “Now if any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his” (Romans 8:9).

“IF ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by [THE COMING] of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by [OUR GATHERING TOGETHER UNTO HIM], whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thessalonians 2:1).

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

Are you living in Fear?

“[THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE; BUT PERFECT LOVE CASTETH OUT FEAR]: because [FEAR HATH TORMENT]. [HE THAT FEARETH IS NOT MADE PERFECT IN LOVE]” (1 John 4:18).

“God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16).

“[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).

“[YE ARE OF GOD, LITTLE CHILDREN], and have overcome them: [BECAUSE GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD]” (1 John 4:4).

“[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).

“[SAY TO THEM THAT ARE OF A FEARFUL HEART, BE STRONG, AND FEAR NOT]: behold, [YOUR GOD WILL COME WITH VENGEANCE], even God with a recompence; [HE WILL COME AND SAVE YOU]” (Isaiah 35:4).

“[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).

JESUS, the only begotten Son of God says: “[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).

“Finally, my brethren, [BE STRONG IN THE LORD, AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT]” (Ephesians 6:10). “The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you. Amen” (2 Timothy 4:22).

We must as Elect Children of God by the FAITH in JESUS CHRIST pray DAILY to our FATHER in HEAVEN: the Lord’s PRAYER.

“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).

Our Lord JESUS CHRIST says: “[GOD IS A SPIRIT: AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]. 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” (John 4:24, 23).

“[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 6:9-13).

We must NEVER be afraid of the things COMING upon this earth: we must TRUST our LORD God and Lord Jesus and not be Fearful but be CHEERFUL!

“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him” (Nahum 1:7).

“[WHAT TIME I AM AFRAID, I WILL TRUST IN THEE]” (Psalm 56:3).

“Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us” (Psalm 62:8).

“[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “BE NOT AFRAID, ONLY BELIEVE’” (Mark 5:36).

“[THESE THINGS I HAVE SPOKEN UNTO YOU], that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but [BE OF GOOD CHEER]; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

“[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).

To get to HEAVEN human beings must obtain LIGHT and this LIGHT can be ONLY obtained through the GOSPEL of CHRIST.

“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 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).

“[THIS THEN IS THE MESSAGE] which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that [GOD IS LIGHT, AND IN HIM IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL]” (1 John 1:5).

JESUS, THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD says: “[I AM COME A LIGHT INTO THE WORLD, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH ON ME SHOULD NOT ABIDE IN DARKNESS]’” (John 12:46).

“[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).

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 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).
