DAY of the LORD.

“This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24).

Let us rejoice today because Jesus says: “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof” (Matthew 6:34).

James, the brother of Jesus also said: “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that” (Jmaes 4:14-15).

“NOW we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that [THE DAY OF CHRIST IS AT HAND].

But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because [GOD HATH FROM THE BEGINNING CHOSEN YOU TO SALVATION] through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

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” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-2, 14-15).

“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.

GOD is GOOD. He has given HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON.

There was news article on the internet today headlined: “Billionaire flies family to Italy for one hour to buy ice cream”.

The article ended with the sentence: “Money is good.”

The prince of this world and his servants are working overtime to DECEIVE THE WHOLE WORLD into believing that only by having wealth and riches a person would have had a worthy lifetime. However, this is a complete LIE!

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

Jesus also warns 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).

“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). “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mark 8:36-37).

“How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God” (Luke 18:24).
James, the brother of Jesus said: “Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is an enemy of God” (James 4:4). “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).

“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).

EVERTHING IS RIGHT IN THE KNGDOM OF HEAVEN (Hebrews 1:8) versus Everything that is WRONG is evil in this world!

“See then that ye walk circumspectly, [NOT AS FOOLS, BUT AS WISE], redeeming the time, because [THE DAYS ARE EVIL]. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:15-18).

“For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the [KINGDOM OF CHRIST AND OF GOD]. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience” (Ephesians 5:5-6)

“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).

“I belong to JESUS and I hate my life in this world!”

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, [FOR MY SAKE]” (Matthew 5:11).

“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).

“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

DAY OF JUDGMENT IS COMING!

Now, there have been persons commenting that the “rapture is coming’ but, we must ALL be more concerned that the DAY OF JUDGMENT IS COMING:

“[FOR WE MUST ALL APPEAR BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST]; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14).

The Apostle Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles said: “Work out your own [SALVATION] with fear and trembling that ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the [DAY OF CHRIST]” (Philippians 2:12, 1:10).

“For God will not lay upon man more than [RIGHT]; that he should [ENTER INTO JUDGMENT WITH GOD]” (Job 34:23). “Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. And if ye call on the Father, [WHO WITHOUT RESPECT OF PERSONS JUDGETH ACCORDING TO EVERY MAN’S WORK], pass the time of your sojourning here in fear” (1 Peter 1:16–17).

“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son” (John 5:22).

“To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life; but unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile. But glory, honor, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: [FOR THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD]” (Romans 2:7–11).

“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).

“And, behold, I come quickly; and [MY REWARD IS WITH ME, TO GIVE EVERY MAN ACCORDING AS HIS WORK SHALL BE]. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have [RIGHT TO THE TREE OF LIFE], and may enter in through the gates into the city” (Revelation 22:12-14).

“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).

BE READY because the End of the World will be THE END (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 11:18).

Now, many people may not find this photograph in good taste on this day but, know this fact, when that day comes, and it is coming, there will be no waiting for ANYONE who may say: “I AM NOT READY AS YET!”

There is no stopping time, pausing time or rewinding time because TIME IS COMING TO AN END.

Therefore, as insensitive as anyone may find this photograph to be on this day, let it be known that our Lord Jesus warned that his coming will be just as in the days of Noah before the great flood, and in the days of Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah.

He expressed how “they did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and [DESTROYED THEM ALL].

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and [DESTROYED THEM ALL]” (Luke 17:27–29).

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

“I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke 5:32).

“Except ye repent, [YE SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH]” (Luke 13:3).

“[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).

Jesus warns, saying: “[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). “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).

“[THEREFORE BE YE ALSO READY: FOR IN SUCH AN HOUR AS YE THINK NOT THE SON OF MAN COMETH]” (Matthew 24:44).

We must NEVER get Comfortable in this world:

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

This world of FOOLISHNESS is coming to an END (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 11:18).

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world” (1 John 2:15).

“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).

“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).

“[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).

“[WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION] with fear and trembling that ye may approve things that are excellent; [THAT YE MAY BE SINCERE AND WITHOUT OFFENCE TILL THE DAY OF CHRIST]” (Philippians 2:12, 1:10).

To get high seek the LIGHT OF THE MOST HIGH (Genesis 14:18) (Daniel 3:26) (Hebrews 7:1-2).

We live in a world where there is much debate about legalizing marijuana, and in some places it has been legalized for medicinal purposes. The mantra continues to be that marijuana is not harmful and should become legal just as alcohol for recreational use so that people can now legally get “high”.

People need to awake to the fact that is is just one more device of the devil, aka Satan, to make money and to keep people in a stupendous state from coming to the knowledge of the truth because the word of God says:

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: [FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP]. For [HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION]; but [HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING]” (Galatians 6:7-8).

Therefore, the use of marijuana to get “high” is akin to sowing to the flesh to feed the plesures of the body.

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “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).

The Apostle Paul explained, 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).

“[SET YOUR AFFECTION ON THINGS ABOVE], not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:2–3).

“[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, to get high seek the LIGHT OF THE MOST HIGH:

“Wherefore God saith: ‘Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee [LIGHT]’” (Ephesians 5:14).
JESUS says: “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).

“[LIGHT IS SOWN FOR THE RIGHTEOUS], and gladness for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness” (Psalm 97:11-12).

“The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be forever” (Psalm 37:18).

“Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. Seek the LORD, and his strength: [SEEK HIS FACE EVERMORE]” (Psalm 105:3-4).

“Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, ‘The Lord be magnified’” (Psalm 40:16).

“I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou [MOST HIGH]” (Psalm 9:2).

Praise the LORD for his goodness and mercies this day.

“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” (Psalm 107:8).

“For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5). “The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” (Psalms 95:5, 24:1).

“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” (Philippians 1:3-6).
