Overcoming this world to the End.

“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” (1 John 5:9–10).

“These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee. As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” (John 17:1-3).

“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 same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “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).

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God” (Revelation 2:7).

“He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels” (Revelation 3:5).

“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches”
(Revelation 22:16).

“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 22:20-21).

S P I R I T versus Flesh and blood.

The Apostle Paul said: “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption” (1 Corinthians 15:50).

Jesus says: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24). “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).

“So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. 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” (Romans 8:8-10).

“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Romans 8:12-13).

“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together” (Romans 8:16-17).

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:1).

DAY OF JUDGMENT: Rich versus POOR.

“The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all” (Proverbs 22:2).
There are those in this world with riches along with the trappings of a weathly lifestyle, and on the other hand, untold numbers of people live every day with barely enough to get by in this world.

On the surface, it may appear that those with wealth and riches have it all, and those with barely enough have nothing at all, but do not be deceived.

James, the brother of Jesus put into prospective our lifetime when he asked: “Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” (James 2:5).

“I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honor are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures” (Proverbs 8:17–21).

Jesus says: “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).

“Woe unto you that are rich; for ye have received your consolation” (Luke 6:24). “How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God” (Luke 18:24).

“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).

Jesus. also expressed that we must not “Let the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word and it becometh unfruitful” (Mark 4:19).

“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).

Gospel of the KINGDOM.

“The Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power; that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the [POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 4:20, 2:5).

“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” (Romans 14:17).

“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).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: [REPENT YE, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL]” (Mark 1:15). “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).

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep” (John 10:10-11).

“[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).

“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).

What will be missed about this world?

Now, be very careful how to answer?

Here is a clue:

Jesus says: “Remember Lot’s wife” (Luke 17:32)?

What then will be missed about this world?

The answer is: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

Jesus says: “No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62).

“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” (Matthew 24:13).

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35).

In time of old, Lot, his wife and two daughters were elected to be saved from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. The angels of God told them, saying: “Escape for thy life; [LOOK NOT BEHIND THEE], neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed” (Genesis 19:17).

Lot’s wife did not believe EVERY word of God as spoken by the angels of God :…” look not behind thee,…”.. Lot’s wife was disobedient to the word of God; Lot’s wife did not endure to the end and lost her Salvation!

Lot’s wife loved life so much in Sodom and Gomorrah that she had to have one last look, but it was not to be, because when she LOOKED BACK she turned into a pillar of salt (Genesis 19:26).

DO NOT LOOK BACK AT ANYTHING IN THIS WORLD!

FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST to the END!

“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).

“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. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace” (2 Thessalonians 2:1, 14-16).

“Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” (Matthew 24:42).

“For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:27).

“Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not” (Luke 12:40).

“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 1:7).

Let’s keep our eyes towards the Heavens!

“I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore” (Psalm 121:1-8).

P R A Y.

The Apostle Paul remined us to “…pray without ceasing…” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God 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 thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly” (Matthew 6:6).

“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).

Jesus taught us to pray saying: “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 6:10-13).

DAY OF JUDGMENT is the DAY OF HARVEST.

“For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” (Isaiah 55:10-11).

Our Lord Jesus explains the DAY OF HARVEST, saying:

“He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; the enemy that sowed them is the Devil; [THE HARVEST IS THE END OF THE WORLD; AND THE REAPERS ARE THE ANGELS]. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. [THEN SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN IN THE KINGDOM OF THEIR FATHER]” (Matthew 13:37–43).

“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for [THE PRECIOUS FRUIT OF THE EARTH], and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh” (James 5:7–8).

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:26).
