R I S E N versus Fallen.

The choice is unquestionably straight forward whom to follow:– 1) a Savior who is RISEN and lives forever or 2) a Destroyer who is FALLEN and will die forever?

Who we follow in our lifetime will determine our outcome on the Last Day. Who are you following: 1) the One who is RISEN or 2) the one who is FALLEN?

The devil, aka Satan, whose name is Lucifer, the once anointed cherub (Ezekiel 28:13–15) or prince is a fallen “son of God, also referred to as the “son of perdition” (2 Thessalonians 2:3), and his angels were cast out of heaven to the nether part of this earth (2 Peter 2:4): “and his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth” (Revelation 12:4).

“These are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise” (Psalm 36:12).

On the other hand, God sent his only begotten Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die for the sins of 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. 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).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke 5:32).

“For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38).

“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32).

“IF ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 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. [WHEN CHRIST, WHO IS OUR LIFE, SHALL APPEAR, THEN SHALL YE ALSO APPEAR WITH HIM IN GLORY]” (Colossians 3:1-4).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, is the author of Eternal Salvation.

Lucifer, the fallen son of wickedness, the prince of this world, is the author of confusion.

At the end of time,

Kingdom of Confusion will finally be FALLEN with an EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION (Isaiah 24:19 ) (Micah 1:3–4) (Revelation 14:11, 20:15);

Kingdom of GOD will finally be RISEN with an ETERNAL SALVATION (Daniel 12:1) (Joel 2:31-32) (1 Corinthians 15:24) (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) (Revelation 13:8-9).

JESUS CHRIST is our SAVIOR!

There is only “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).

“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).

“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 since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:21–22).

“The Lord knoweth them that are his” (2 Timothy 2:19). “Now if any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his” (Romans 8:9).
The Apostle Paul also said: “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).

“IF ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 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. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory” (Colossians 3:1-4).

“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful” (Colossians 3:15).

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).

GOD or the world?

We cannot be in the LIGHT and at the sametime in darkness.
We cannot follow after RIGHTEOUSNESS and at the sametime wickedness.
We cannot follow JESUS and at the sametime a billionaire.
We cannot be in the KINGDOM OF GOD and at the same time in a secret society.
We cannot love GOD and at the same time love money.
We cannot be a servant of GOD and at the same the a servant of the world, the prince of this world, the devil, aka Satan.
Jesus says: “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).
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error” (1 John 4:1-8).
“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).
“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).
