OVERCOME and be not overwhelmed by the world.

We must not feel left out if we have not achieved riches and wealth in this world.

“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).

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” (Philippians 4:6).

“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).

Do Not Be Anxious About Anything, But In Everything, By Prayer A

NEED versus Want.

How often have we heard someone say: I want a new house; I want a new car; I want new clothes; I want more to eat and so on.

Do you need a new house? Do you need a new car? Do you need new clothes? Do you really need to eat more food?

Jesus 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).

“And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, [THAT EVEN SOLOMON IN ALL HIS GLORY WAS NOT ARRAYED LIKE ONE OF THESE]” (Matthew 6:28-29).

“The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:1-2).

Jesus continues, says: “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?” (Mark 8:36-37).

“Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?” (Matthew 6:30-31).

“Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” (Matthew 6:26).

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:20).

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt [BELIEVE] in thine [HEART] that god hath raised him from the dead, [THOU SHALT BE SAVED]. For with the [HEART] man [BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS]; and with the mouth confession is made unto [SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).

“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).

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 2:29).

“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).

“‘[BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THOU SHALT BE SAVED, AND THY HOUSE]’” (Acts 16:31).

“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 3:18).

The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt [BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED]. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto [SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).

“For as the Father raiseth 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: 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 5:21-24).

“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).

So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the Kingdom of God is nigh at hand; then look up, and lift up your heads; for your [REDEMPTION] draweth nigh” (Luke 21:20, 31, 28).

“[IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS] shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:29-30).

“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).

How to enter the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN?

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that [DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN]” (Matthew 7:21).

“For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14).

When Jesus was here on this earth going about doing his Father’s business, he was asked by his disciples, “What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?” (John 6:28).

“Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘This is the work of God, that ye [BELIEVE ON HIM WHOM HE HATH SENT]’” (John 6:29).

“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).

“‘[BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THOU SHALT BE SAVED, AND THY HOUSE]’” (Acts 16:31).

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto [SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).

“For as the Father raiseth 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: 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 5:21-24).

GOSPEL OF GOD in the House of God?

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

In our present time there are innumerable church denominations that have have developed since the time of the early churches.

However, we are to be very careful when we decide to have fellowship of worship in any church because the word of God says:

“Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil” (Ecclesiastes 5:1).

“He that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations” (Isaiah 66:3).

“The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness” (Proverbs 15:8-9).

“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, [WHAT SHALL THE END BE OF THEM THAT OBEY NOT THE GOSPEL OF GOD]? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” (1 Peter 4:17-18).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God is very clear when he comes, says: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21). “For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14).

“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches” (Revelation 22:16).

“He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels” (Revelation 3:5).

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne” (Revelation 3:20-21).

“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 22:14).

“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).

H E A V E N is FOREVER!

“The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all” (Psalm 103:19).

Therefore, knowing that this heaven and earth will pass away, every hiuman being should be very diligent in getting to the Paradise of God where is the throne of God and of the Lamb, Jesus Christ (Revelation 22:1-2).
Only Jesus knows the way to the Paradise of God.

“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).

“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).

Jesus says: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: [BE ZEALOUS THEREFORE, AND REPENT]. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 3:19-22).

“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).

Paradise In Sky

E T E R N A L versus Temporal.

There is another planet Earth in the heavens but, it is not visible.

“For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him” (Isaiah 64:4).

Jesus was very clear when he told his disciples, saying: “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. 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).

For those of us in the kingdom of God we have FAITH in the SALVATION of God (John 3:16) believing the word of God that there is New Heavens and a New Earth (Isaiah 65:17) (2 Peter 3:13) (Revelation 21:1).

“Now [FAITH] is the substance of things [HOPED FOR], the [EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN]” (Hebrews 11:1).

“For we are [SAVED BY HOPE]: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? [BUT IF WE HOPE FOR THAT WE SEE NOT], [THEN DO WE WITH PATIENCE WAIT FOR IT]” (Romans 8:24-25).

“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, [THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH]. For the [INVISIBLE THINGS OF HIM FROM THE CREATION OF THE WORLD] are [CLEARLY SEEN, BEING UNDERSTOOD BY THE THINGS THAT ARE MADE], even his eternal power and Godhead” (Romans 1:17, 20).

“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).
