Religion, Race, and Riches or RIGHTEOUSNESS?

Religion, race, and riches (or lack of) are often used by many in this world to divide, to separate, and try to make better than the other, which goes against God’s commandment to love thy neighbor as thyself (Matthew 19:19).

“And this is his commandment, That [WE SHOULD BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER], as he gave us commandment” (1 John 3:23).

“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).

“[ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM, ONE GOD AND FATHER OF ALL], who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ” (Ephesians 4:5-7).

Therefore, people all over this earth should focus less on religion, race and riches (or lack of) and instead seek to be RIGHTEOUS because on the LAST DAY EVERY human being will be judge on RIGHTEOUSNESS (Matthew 24:36) (Acts 17:30-31) (Revelation 20:11-15).

“[WHOSOEVER TRANSGRESSETH, AND ABIDETH NOT IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, HATH NOT GOD]. [HE THAT ABIDETH IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, HE HATH BOTH THE FATHER AND THE SON]” (2 John 1:9).

“[THE FATHER LOVETH THE SON, AND HATH GIVEN ALL THINGS INTO HIS HAND]” (John 3:35).

“[GOD], who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, [HATH IN THESE LAST DAYS SPOKEN UNTO US BY HIS SON, WHOM HE HATH APPOINTED HEIR OF ALL THINGS], by whom also he [MADE THE WORLDS]” (Hebrews 1:1–2).

“For as the Father rises up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. [FOR THE FATHER JUDGETH NO MAN, BUT HATH COMMITTED ALL JUDGMENT UNTO THE SON]” (John 5:21–22).

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but [AFTER THIS THE JUDGMENT]” (Hebrews 9:27).

“[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).

“[AND THE TIMES OF THIS IGNORANCE] God winked at; but now [COMMANDETH ALL MEN EVERY WHERE TO REPENT]: Because he hath [APPOINTED A DAY], in the which he will judge the world in [RIGHTEOUSNESS] by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead” (Acts 17:30-31).

“[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).

“[FOR THE WRATH OF GOD IS] revealed from heaven [AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN], who hold the truth in [UNRIGHTEOUSNESS]” (Romans 1:18).

Kingdom of GOD or secret society?

Do you really need a mansion; a garage of luxury and sports cars; a hanger of private jets; a rare jewlery and art collection; a townhouse in the city; a villa on a private island; a brokerage account with millions of currency; do you really need all these things of the world?

We cannot be in the Kingdom of God and in a secret society!

We cannot serve God and the prince of thie world!

After all where is this world?

On this earth.

Who created the heaven and earth?

God created this heaven and earth (Genesis 1:1).

“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 90:2).

JESUS, THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD 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).

“[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).

“[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).

“[LABOUR NOT FOR THE MEAT WHICH PERISHETH, BUT FOR THAT MEAT WHICH ENDURETH UNTO EVERLASTING LIFE], which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed” (John 6:26-27).

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, [BUT MY WORDS SHALL NOT PASS AWAY]” (Matthew 24:35).

To love this world is to love the prince of this world, the devil, aka Satan who hates God and his only begotten Son.

“Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is an enemy of God” (James 4:4).

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world” (1 John 2:15). “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).

“[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).

LOVE the word of GOD because Jesus also says: “It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” (Luke 4:4).

“For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89).

Earth With Religious Cross With Black Background

We must CONFESS and BELIEVE in JESUS CHRIST to be BORN OF THE HOLY SPIRIT to obtain SALVATION (Matthew 3:1-2, 11) (Luke 17:21) (John 14:23) (Acts 1:4-5) (Romans 10:8-10).

Sometime ago this comment was posted as follows: “We must be fully immersed in water in “JESUS NAME” to be born of the Spirit”

This comment is NOT TRUTH and will NOT get you SALVATION!

The word of God IS OF NO PRIVATE INTERPRETATION because it is written: “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little” (Isaiah 28:10).

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Nicodemus saith unto him, ‘How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?’

Jesus answered, ‘Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be [BORN OF WATER AND
OF THE SPIRIT], he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and [THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT IS SPIRIT].

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is [BORN OF THE SPIRIT]” (John 3:3-8).

“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, [THE SPIRIT, AND THE WATER, AND THE BLOOD]: and [THESE THREE AGREE IN ONE]” (1 John 5:7–8).

When Jesus was crucified along with two thieves, it was customary after a crucifixion to break the legs; however, “when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs; but, one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out [BLOOD AND WATER]” (John 19:33–34).

“And [HE THAT SAW IT BARE RECORD AND HIS RECORD IS TRUE]: and he knoweth that he saith true, [THAT YE MIGHT BELIEVE]” (John 19:35).

This record of blood and water which came out of the pierced side of Jesus most significant spoken of by John when he asked:

“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).

“[WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH THAT JESUS IS THE CHRIST IS BORN OF GOD]: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen” (1 John 5:1, 21).

“[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8).

“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).

“Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read” (Isaiah 34:16) because a FAMINE is COMING:

“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.

The LORD God in the NAME of JESUS is always with us.

In the midst of the storms of this lifetime, we are always confident knowing that as it is written:

“GOD is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

[BE STILL, AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD]: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

The LORD of hosts [IS WITH US]; the God of Jacob [IS OUR REFUGE]. Selah” (Psalm 46:1-11).
