PRAYER is the key to communicate with GOD (Matthew 6:9-13)..

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

“For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright” (Psalm 11:7). “The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness” (Jeremiah 4:2).

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 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).

Let us also be reminded how the Apostle Paul said: “P R A Y without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

In GLORY of the FATHER, the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.

“He who lives or dies in JESUS CHRIST wins” or “He who dies with the most toys wins”? (Revelation 11:18, 20:11-15).

In this world untold numbers of people spend a lifetime trying to achieve the goal as the 1980’s slogan says: “He who dies with the most toys wins”.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED!

To win in this life is to FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST TO OBTAIN ETERNAL LIFE! (John 3:16-18).

Our Lord 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).

Anyone who chooses to seek to amass wealth, riches, and possessions in this world is choosing to serve the prince of this world, the devil aka Satan which is of NO PROFIT because Jesus also pointed saying: “For what is a man profited, if [HE SHALL GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD, AND LOSE HIS OWN SOUL]? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:26).

“No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (Luke 16:13).

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).

“Riches and honor are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness” (Proverbs 8:17-18).

“[THEY THAT FOLLOWETH AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS AND MERCY FINDETH LIFE], righteousness, and honor” (Proverbs 21:21). “Laying up in store for themselves a good
foundation against the time to come, [THAT THEY MAY LAY HOLD ON ETERNAL LIFE]” (1 Timothy 6:19).

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the [DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST], [WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS], to meet the Lord in the air: and [SO SHALL WE EVER] be with the Lord. “Wherefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–18).

Jesus also 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).

“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).

To BELIEVE the word of GOD or to be Deceived by the world?

“[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).

“[FOR GOD SENT NOT HIS SON INTO THE WORLD] to condemn the world; but [THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED]” (John 3:17).

“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.

[AND THIS IS THE RECORD, THAT GOD HATH GIVEN TO US ETERNAL LIFE, AND THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON]” (1 John 5:9-11).

“Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves” (Psalm 100:3).

“LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God” (Psalm 90:1-2).

“IN the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made” (John 1:1-3).

When Jesus ascended to heaven this was the communication from God, the Father, the LORD to his only begotten Son, the Word of God the Lord:

“THE LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool” (Psalm 110:1).

“The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the [DAY OF HIS WRATH]. He shall [JUDGE] among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries” (Psalm 110:5-6).

“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).

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love; having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will” (Ephesians 1:3–5).

“And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell” (Colossians 1:18–19).

This earth is NOT home!

This heaven and earth will pass away (1 Peter 21:33) (Mark 13:31) (2 Peter 3:10)!

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

Before he left this earth, Jesus very clearly told his disciples, “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you” (John 14:2). He also told his disciples, “[I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU]. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:2–3).

Jesus is in the heavens where there is already NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH where there is the NEW JERUSALEM. In the Book of Revelation John said:

“[AND I SAW A GREAT WHITE THRONE, AND HIM THAT SAT ON IT, FROM WHOSE FACE THE EARTH AND THE HEAVEN FLED AWAY; AND THERE WAS FOUND NO PLACE FOR THEM]” (Revelation 20:11).

“And I saw a [NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH]: [FOR THE FIRST HEAVEN AND THE FIRST EARTH WERE PASSED AWAY]; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, [NEW JERUSALEM], [COMING DOWN FROM GOD OUT OF HEAVEN], prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God” (Revelation 21:1-3).

“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).

“It is good that a man should both hope and quietly [WAIT FOR THE SALVATION] of the LORD” (Lamentation 3:26).

“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).

“[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).

The CROSS OF JESUS is LOVE is the POWER OF GOD.

To be SAVED, RESCUED OR REDEEMED from this earth on the LAST DAY, human beings must have the SPIRIT OF LOVE or the SPIRIT OF GOD or the SPIRIT OF JESUS CHRIST.

“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 3:16-18).

“For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and [QUICKENETH] them; [EVEN SO THE SON QUICKENETH WHOM HE WILL]” (John 5:21).

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

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:51).

“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. 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 5:20-24).

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [LAST TRUMP]: for the trumpet shall sound, and [THE DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE, AND WE SHALL BE CHANGED]. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:52–53).

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and [THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST], then we which are [ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS], to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).

“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).

King JESUS is the most POWERFUL human being.

We live in a world of deceit and lies: these words may be shocking to some people or even rejected by others. To be more specific, we live in a world where the pinnacle of success is becoming a billionaire, and there is even talk of soon to be the first trillionaire. However, no amount of money can purchase salvation!

“What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? Shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave?” (Psalm 89:48).

“There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it” (Ecclesiastes 8:8).

Notwithstanding, according to the Holy Scriptures, King Solomon was the wealthiest person based on the standards of this world (2 Chronicles 1:7–12), our Lord, Savior and King Jesus is greater than Solomon because he expressly said: “[BEHOLD, A GREATER THAN SOLOMON IS HERE]” (Matthew 12:42).

“[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).

On the right hand of God, the Father now sits Jesus: “Who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen” (1 Timothy 6:15–16).

“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.

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast whom thou hast sent” (John 17:1-3).

BELIEVE only the TRUTH: word of GOD!

Beware of the lies and deceit of this world: Distant planets; distant worlds; going to mars; going back to the moon; going where no man has gone before and so on. Seemingly man believes in Science or Science fiction more than the GOD.

The Apostle Paul expressed about science when he warned his son Timothy saying: “O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and [OPPOSITIONS OF SCIENCE FALSELY SO CALLED]” (1 Timothy 6:20).

“O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD” (Jeremiah 22:29).

“I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me” (Isaiah 45:5).

“Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? [IT IS HE THAT SITTETH] upon the [CIRCLE OF THE EARTH], and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; [THAT STRETCHETH OUT THE HEAVENS AS A CURTAIN], and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in” (Isaiah 40:21-22).

“[THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD; AND THE FIRMAMENT SHEWETH HIS HANDYWORK]” (Psalm 19:1). “The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men” (Psalm 115:16).

DO NOT BE DECEIVED!

Human beings CANNOT leave this firmament of heaven (Genesis 1:1-8, 3:22-24) (Acts 17:24-26).

“[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).

There is only ONE WAY to GOD the FATHER before this heaven and earth before it passes away on the Last Day, and that is by the WAY of JESUS CHRIST, the only begotten Son of God (John 3:16-18) who says:

“[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).

“[NO MAN CAN COME TO ME], except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the [LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).
