“It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes” (Psalm 118:8-9).
“Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God” (Psalm 146:3-5).
“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).
The foundation of this heaven and earth is wickedness because when Jesus was here on earth he testified that the works were only evil (John 7:7). The day is coming when this heaven and earth will pass away (1 Peter 21:33) (Mark 13:31) (2 Peter 3:10) (Revelation 11:18, 16:17).
Notwithstanding, there is another world, a new world without end in New Heavens and a New Earth which is a place of RIGHTEOUSNESS (2 Peter 3:13-14).
“The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness” (Jeremiah 4:2).
“The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works” (Psalm 145:17).
Only the Righteous will make it to HEAVEN.
“Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (2 Peter 3:13-14).
“For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright” (Psalm 11:7).
The righteous will flourish as the palm tree (Psalm 92:12).
“Offer the sacrifices of [RIGHTEOUSNESS], and put your trust in the LORD” (Psalm 4:5).
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for [INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS]” (2 Timothy 3:16).
“Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read” (Isaiah 34:16).
When time ends, “Truth shall spring out of the earth; and [RIGHTEOUSNESS] shall look down from heaven” (Psalm 85:11).
“This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24).
Every day that passes by in this earth is one day closer to the end of the world, and the return of our Lord, Savior and King Jesus (Matthew 13:37–43, 24:1-3). However, Jesus says: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).
“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:37).
“’If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me’” (Matthew 16:24). “And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me” (Matthew 10:38).
“Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” (Matthew 24:42).
Be very, very careful who you serve in this lifetime because it will determine your destination for FOREVER on the LAST DAY! (Revelation 20:11-15).
JESUS is the Son of Peace (Luke 10:6), the only begotten Son of God, the God of Peace (Romans 15:33).
Lucifer, the fallen prince, the devil, aka Satan is the son of Perdition (2 Thessalonians 2:3), that man of sin, the son of Wickedness (Psalm 89:22).
When Jesus comes he will destroy the devil, aka Satan!
The Apostle Paul explained when he said: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and [THAT MAN OF SIN BE REVEALED, THE SON OF PERDITION]; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3–4).
“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming” (2 Thessalonians 2:8).
The prophet Daniel foretold of the destruction of the devil, aka Satan, saying:
“I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: [I BEHELD EVEN TILL THE BEAST WAS SLAIN, AND HIS BODY DESTROYED, AND GIVEN TO THE BURNING FLAME]” (Daniel 7:11).
“THEN COMETH THE END, when he shall have [DELIVERED UP THE KINGDOM TO GOD, EVEN THE FATHER]; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).
Let us stand firm and keep steadfast is our Faith in JESUS, the son of Peace, our Lord, Savior and King to the END!
“Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:22-23).
“Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen” (Romans 15:33).
If asked among a random selection of people, answers will run the gamut from:
“I had a sandwich”;
“I had fish and chips;
“I had a soup and salad”
“I didn’t have lunch as yet”;
“I had the buffet and tried almost everything”;
And so on.
Before or after we eat let us always remember to give God thanks in Jesus’ name for what we are about to eat or just ate because the word of God says: “When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee” (Deuteronomy 8: 10).
“For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5).
“The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want” (Proverbs 13:25).
For those of us fortunate to be able to buy food to have at least three main meals every day, let us also remember that there are millions of people, if not a billion or more people, living on this earth in conditions of starvation, and if they were asked: What did you have for lunch? There will be heartfelt answers such as:
“I do not know where to get food”; or “I have not eaten in days”; or “I do not have money to buy lunch” and so on.
“Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble” (Psalm 41:1).
While we may not be able to perform miracles as Jesus did when he took five loaves of bread and two fish to feed five thousand men beside women and children (Matthew 14:19-21), we can take action in our communities to feed the hungry, provide shelter, comfort the sick, visit the imprisoned, and in general provide help to those in need (Matthew 25:35–39).
We will be rewarded for our good works for being a profitable elected servant of God. On the Last Day when Jesus returns to earth, he will say, “Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:40).
“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:20).
“God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God” (Psalm 62:11).
“I AM the LORD thy God. Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:2–3).
“For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens” (Psalm 96:4–5).
“O LORD, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches” (Psalm 104:24).
“All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom and talk of thy power; to make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom. Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations” (Psalm 145:10–13).
“GOD standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods. Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations” (Psalm 82:1, 8).
At the end of time the wrath of God will “destroy them which destroy the earth” (Revelation 11:18), and “the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ” (Revelation 11:15).
“And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints” (Revelation 15:3).
“Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever” (Psalm 118:28-29).
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD. And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it” (Amos 8:11-12).
“THE LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
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).
Jesus says: “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep” (John 10:11).
“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).
One noted headline of today’s news is: “The world’s youngest billionaire”.
DO NOT BE DECEIVED by the prince of this world because we live in a world of deceit and lies, These words may be shocking to some people or even rejected by others.
However, Jesus says: “He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When [HE SPEAKETH A LIE, HE SPEAKETH OF HIS OWN]: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44).
King Solomon according to the Holy Scriptures is the wealthiest person ever based to the standards of this world (2 Chronicles 1:7–12).
However, our Lord, Savior and King Jesus is greater than Solomon because when he was here on earth he expressly said: “Behold, a greater than Solomon is here” (Matthew 12:42). “All things that the Father hath are mine” (John 16:15).
Why is then that in this world there are no daily headlines about the only begotten Son of God: JESUS. Why?
“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).
It doesn’t matter who we are in this world, whether well known such as a King, Queen. Prince, President, billionaire, millionaire or not so well known, everyone is doing something to make a living and even profiting on this earth created by God: “For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5).
The word of God also says: “The profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field” (Ecclesiastes 5:9).
“God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God” (Psalm 62:11).
“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).
“For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens” (2 Corinthians 5:1).
JESUS IS THE MOST POWERFUL HUMAN BEING: MORE POWERFUL THAN ALL THE BILLIONAIERS ON THIS EARTH!
GOD has given POWER ONLY to JESUS to give human beings ETERNAL LIFE (John 17:1-3).
These words must be itched in all human beings hearts because the day is soon coming when it will be the LAST DAY on earth, and on that day, the DAY OF JUDGMENT, the judgment will be F O R E V E R: ETERNAL LIFE or EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT.
Keep the FAITH and follow JESUS CHRIST to the END.
“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).
“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).
