The Lord God has set before you LIFE and DEATH - God says "CHOOSE LIFE"  - Deuteronomy 30:19

We all have choices in our life.   It is up to us to make sure that our choices are the right choices and line up with the word of God.  God telling us to Choose LIFE is found in Deuteronomy 30:19.


 

 


Who are you living for?

Are you living for God or Satan You have the choice.

Are you a friend of God? or a friend of the world?

Are you an enemy of God? or are you the enemy of the devil?

 

Whose side are you living on?  You cannot have it both ways. 

God says that you cannot serve two masters, we cannot straddle the fence, one foot in good and one foot in evil. 

The word of God reads that we cannot walk with God on one day of the week and live with the devil the rest of the weekGod does NOT accept halfway commitments, partial faith in Him is unbelief.

God says that if we are NOT serving Him, then we are serving satan. 

 

God says we are either the servant of God or the servant of the devil.  God says we cannot serve Him and serve the devil.  God says if we truly serve Him, that we cannot serve the devil.

Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.  1 Corinthians 10:21

God says everyone must make a choice.  You need to choose a side, and then abide, live on the side that you choose.

If you have been saved, you must realize that through salvation you become a child of God

All the children of God are saved the exact same way, by only one way, by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ.

When you are saved by the blood of Jesus, you no longer belong to this world, the saved in Christ Jesus belong to God

Our salvation separates us from the world.  Through salvation, believers of Christ Jesus are separated from this world, forever.

As believers of Christ Jesus, we are OF God, not OF this world.

All believers of Jesus belong to God.  When we are saved, by the grace of God through faith in Jesus, we become the children of God.

God clearly states He is NOT of the world.  God is not of the world.  God said the world is His enemy. 

They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  John 17:16

So if God is NOT of the world, and when we are saved, we become the children of God, we as believers are NOT of the world, either.

When we are saved, we give our life to Christ, the saved surrender all their life to God, and we repent of our past sins, we cast off the world and put away a worldly life, we put away a life of sin and unrighteousness, we live holy, godly, and righteous life to our King Jesus. 

When you are saved, you are separated from the world of sin, because Christ is separate from the world.  Believers are separated from the world, through Christ Jesus.

All believers follow Christ, not the world.  Jesus Christ is Lord!

When we become saved, we become a new creature, we are permanently and continually separated from the world by a renewing of our Spirit

We become cleansed and purified though the ultimate sacrifice by the blood of Jesus Christ.

God gives every person choices - life or death - blessing or cursing - God says choose life !! Deuteronomy 30:19

 


Why must I make any choice?

 

We must all make a choice, because God loves us and wants us to be with Him for all eternity.

We must all make a choice, because God gave us free will to choice.

We must all make a choice, because this earthly life is temporary, can end at any moment.

We must all make a choice, because God promises that all people will die once, and after death His judgment (Hebrews 9:27).

We must all make a choice, because based on our choice is where we will spend our eternity.

We must all make a choice, because the Master we choose in this life, will be our Master for all eternity, when we die.

 


Should I choose life or death?

God has set before each of us life and death, and we must make a choice (Deuteronomy 30:19), and God says "CHOOSE LIFE"!

God gave us His written word for us to come to the knowledge of truth and choose life through Him.

The written Word of God is the revelation of God Himself to all mankind, so that we can know Him and love Him, so that we can receive everlasting life, and so that we can live with Him for all eternity.

The will of God, the desire of God is for all mankind to make the right choice, to choose Him, to choose life.

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

The choice is clear, "choose life"

 


Why does GOD give us a choice?

Many people may wonder why God gives us a choice, why didn't God just make us love Him and make our choice for us?

The answer is because God loves us.  It is because God loves us, that He gave us a choice to love Him.

God is love (1 John 4:16).  God does not force His love upon anyone.  We must choose His love and His way for our lives.  We must choose to love God.

Love cannot be forced.  No one can force, make another, love them.  Love does not work that way, because love is freely given, not forced.

Love that is forced is not love, it is slavery, it is bondage, but not love.  Love is freely given.

The love of God is expressed to us, by giving us a way out of our sin, a way to escape His wrath and death, through faith in His only begotten Son, which He gave to us out of His love, so that we might receive eternal life and live with Him forever.

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  1 John 4:10

Mankind is not love, but God is love.  We can be part of God's love by accepting and receiving, by grace through faith, His salvation. 

We know part of what love is because of God and because of His Christ, and one day soon, all of God's love will be revealed to us, when we are ready to comprehend it, able to handle it, when we are transformed into Glory and see Him face to face (1 Corinthians 13:12), and will be forever with our LORD!   Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!!

But, before we enter Heaven, we are here on this earth, and we must understand in part and be content, because we have faith in God, because we trust in Christ Jesus, because we love our Lord God with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our strength.

It is easy to understand why God gave us a choice, after we understand love, His love, by accepting His salvation.

The love of God, understanding, knowledge, wisdom is given to all God's children by grace through faith in His Son to salvation.

Why can't I make a choice later?

Many people want to delay answering God about their choice later.  Many people are too busy now, or having too much fun now to think about their eternal destiny.

Too many people think that they can make their decision later.

The problem of making your choice later is that NO ONE is promised a tomorrow, a later

If you die without the salvation of God, then your eternal destiny is set and unchangeable, and you will be separated from God for all eternity.  

Know that our lives here, this existence here on this small planet we call earth is only for a very short time, it is temporary, and so temporary that God refers to it as "but a vapor", when compared to all eternity (James 4:14).

No one is guaranteed a tomorrow, you must decide on your eternity today.

 


Who is your Master? GOD or the world?

Everyone must make a decision who to serve

 

Who is your Master?

Remember the Master you choose in this life, will be your Master in eternity.

We must all make a decision to serve God or serve the world, self, and the devil

 

God says no one can serve two masters.

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

 

And a person divided against himself cannot stand.

And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.  Mark 3:25

 

You cannot live divided between serving God and serving the world, it just will not work. 

No one can have Jesus as their Saviour and the devil as their Lord.  Jesus must be your personal Saviour and Lord.  For the true believer, there can be only one Master, Jesus Christ our Lord (Matthew 23:10; John 13:13).

Who is running your life?  Is Christ guiding your life, or is it sin?  If you are being led by sin, lusts of the flesh, selfishness, you do not have Jesus as the Lord of your life.  Salvation by faith is letting go of self and trusting in Christ Jesus to lead you.

The above scriptures say, No one can serve two masters, because you will hate one and love the other, or else you will hold onto one and despise the other.

How has your life turned out?  Is your life, the way you are living now, is it working out for you?  Is your life working out?

Are you happy?  Are you satisfied?  Are you fulfilled?  Do you experience joy, peace, love?

Are you who you want to be?  Are you experiencing peace?

We must choose to live separate from the ungodly, evil world.  We must purposefully separate ourselves unto God.  We must purposefully live by faith through Christ Jesus. 

Living righteously for God takes effort, takes determination, takes dedication and takes commitment, but we don't do it alone, we have the strength and the power of the Lord God Almighty Himself to help us every step of the way to Heaven.  Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!!

The Scriptures read, "Be ye separate" (2 Corinthians 6:17-18), and God tells us to "be holy because He is Holy" (Leviticus 11:44-45; 1 Peter 1:16), "we are to live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world" (Titus 2:12), no matter what the circumstances.

As believers, yes we live IN the world, but we are NOT OF the world.  We are not OF the world that we are IN, there is a difference.  We don't belong to this world, this is not our home, our home our destination is Heaven to be forever with our Lord God.

As believers of Christ Jesus, we are OF God, we are the children of God, we are no longer a child of this world.

If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.  John 15:19

God calls everyone to Him, to be a part of Him, to be separate from this world of sin and evil.

We must choose to answer "Yes, I will come" to the call from God, we must choose to be separated to God, and separated from sin and evil of this world.

Jesus chose us to be separate from this world.  When we accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Saviour, to forgive us of all our sins and gift us eternal life, we repent of sin and pledge to obey and follow Christ, Jesus takes us out of the world and places us in His Kingdom.  Jesus saves us from sin and death, gives us salvation.

Believers of Jesus are NOT of the world, because Christ is NOT of the world.

I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  John 17:14,16

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 for ever.  1 John 2:16-17

 

If you want to hold onto the lusts of the flesh and the sin of the world, if you want to live as the wicked world does in sin, you can, it is your choice, but you cannot hold onto sin and this world and become a child of God. 

God says in His word, that no one can be a child of God and a child of the devil.  All people are either one or the other, never both.

God says that we are either with Him, or against Him (Matthew 12:30; Luke 11:23).  Christ says that no one can remain neutral between good and evil, you must choose a side.  We must stand with Christ Jesus against the powers of darkness, satan, and the evil in this world.  If we compromise with sin we have chosen the wrong side.

No one can hold onto unrighteousness, live in sin, which is serving sin, and be a child of God. 

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.  James 4:4

If you are a friend of sin, a friend of satan by pursuing sin, you are of this world and the enemy of God.   Sin has and will always be attached to satan.  If you attach yourself to sin, you are attaching yourself to the devil.

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.  1 John 3:8

To be a child of God, we must surrender all, throw out all the junk in your life, get rid of all sin in our life, hold nothing back from God.  Submit to God and resist the devil.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  James 4:7

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.  James 4:8

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.  1 Corinthians 6:9-10

It is a popular belief in the world today that all people will enter heaven when they die, no matter how they live their lives, even if they live unrighteously all their lives, but this is NOT what God says.

There is NOT one scripture in the word of God that says the unrighteous, any person who lives willfully in sin, the unbelieving will inherit the kingdom of God.

Scripture after scripture, the word of God tells everyone that anyone who is unrighteous and unbelieving will NOT inherit His kingdom.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED by anyone's lie, don't listen to satan when he says that you can live day in and day out in sin and it is okay, for any reason, because it is a lie that you have nothing to worry about, DON'T LISTEN TO THE DEVIL  - LISTEN TO GOD.

From the beginning of this world, God says "the wages of sin is death", and it doesn't matter who you say you are, or what name you call yourself, God says - if you live unrighteous, live for sin, if you do not have saving faith in God, you will perish in hell. 

No one is exempt from the word of God, no one who is unrighteous is exempt from the wrath of God.

God tells us in His Holy Word, that "for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap". 

Everyone will reap what they sow, unrighteousness will reap death in hell, and living righteousness will reap everlasting life in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.  Galatians 6:7-8

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  2 Thessalonians 2:10

 

No one can be attached to sin, attached to the devil, all their life and be granted into God's Kingdom.  No one can live one way and expect to receive the reward of another, it doesn't work that way.  God says corruption will inherit corruption

The reward of eternal life is only for people who choose to serve the Lord Jesus (Colossians 3:24).

The reward of the unrighteous, those who lived their whole life sinning, unrepentant, disobedient to God, forsaking the right way, self-willed, refusing to turn from their wickedness, serving the devil, is death.  Do NOT be deceived, the reward of sin is death, eternal separation from God.

 

But you might say, I call myself a Christian and can't go to hell?

Don't believe for a moment that by calling yourself a Christian, you will gain entrance into the Kingdom of God, because it won't. 

God is not mocked.  You cannot deceive God.  God sees inside you, inside your heart, what's on the inside matters to God, God sees your soul.  Salvation is an internal condition, not a title, not a label, and not a name.

People cannot fool God with their outward righteousness.  God says anyway that our feeble attempt at righteousness is nothing to Him but filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6).

Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.  Matthew 23:28

God sees straight through hypocrisy and self-righteousness.  God sees iniquity and hypocrisy (Mark 12:15).  Hypocrisy is acting as if you are what you are not; acting like a Christian, saying you are a believer of Christ Jesus, saying Jesus is your Saviour and Lord, but in your heart you are far from God (Mark 7:6).

Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,  This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.  But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.  Matthew 15:7-9

God is not mocked.  Calling yourself a Christian doesn't necessarily mean that you are, professing is not possessing Christ as Saviour and Lord. 

They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.  Titus 1:16

God says that no one can call themselves saved, or a Christian, and live in unrighteousness and sin all their life and then receive eternal life.

God says only true believers of Christ Jesus, those who abide in Him, remain attached to Christ, obey God, DO the will of God by holding onto their faith in God, will abide forever.

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.  1 John 3:9-10

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.  1 John 5:4

 

Because we are born of God, we receive the power of God through salvation, by the grace of God through faith in God, and we overcome the lusts and sins of this wicked world. 

We have victory over sin and death through our faith in God.

 


Are you serving GOD?

 

The word of God reads that if you love God, you will obey His commandments, obey His word, follow His truth.

 

Love the Lord God

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  Matthew 22:37

 

Only serve and worship the one true God

And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.  Luke 4:8

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.  James 2:19

 

Faith and Hope in God

Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.  1 Peter 1:21

 

Dwell in God

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.  1 John 4:16

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.  1 John 4:4

 

Jesus is not of the world

I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  John 17:14

 

Believers are not of the world

They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  John 17:16

 

Love not the world.

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  1 John 2:15

Love not the world - This scripture doesn't mean we are not to take care of the planet earth.  This scripture means we are not to love the ungodly, wicked, evil things that are in the world.

We are not to worship the things of this world.  We are not to be consumed with the cares of this world (Mark 4:19). 

The word of God is very clear that we are to take care of the earth, keeping it clean and growing.  Taking care of the plants and animals, the ground, the forests, the air and the waters.

God doesn't want us to be involved with the evil of this world, or to lust after the things of the world. 

Believers of God are not to sin.  God does not want anyone to sin.  Sin does not please God.

Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.  1 Corinthians 15:34

As believers, our kingdom is with God, not here on this temporary earth.  The word of God reads that everything on this earth, and the planet itself will be destroyed one day by Him. 

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.  Matthew 24:35

Our home is in Heaven, our eternal life is in Heaven, not here on this earth.

We should never be too attached to things.  God said that we brought nothing into this world, and we will carry nothing out.

For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  1 Timothy 6:7

The children of God have no treasures here, our treasures are in Heaven with God, to be given all to us when we see Him face to face (Matthew 6:19-21).

 

The world is the enemy of God

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.  James 4:4

Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  Romans 8:7

 


Are you serving the world?

You know you serve the world, if you put anything in the world above God.

He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.  Matthew 10:37

 

The world is the enemy of God

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.  James 4:4

Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  Romans 8:7

(The world here is the corrupt world system, not the earth.  God created the earth, the plants, the trees, the animals are all loved and cherished by God.)

 

The love of God is not in those that love the world

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  1 John 2:15

(Again, the world here is the corrupt world system, the broken values, all who have forsaken God and love the material things of this world.)

 

The world does not know God

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.  John 1:10

O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  John 17:25

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it new him not.  1 John 3:1

The world is selfish and seeking and cares about itself whatever the cost to others.

 

The world is blind to God

The wicked world is blind to God, cannot know God until they accept the truth of God, with is saving faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.

Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.  John 14:17

Believers know God and God dwells in the hearts of believers.

 

The world hates God

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  John 15:18

 

The world hates believers

If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.  John 15:19

I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  John 17:14

Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.  1 John 3:13

 

The world is NOT OF GOD

Devil

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:  1 Peter 5:8

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.  1 John 3:8

In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.  1 John 3:10

For more information see - DEVIL

 

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and this Jesus is the way to salvation, eternal life in the Kingdom of God.

Jesus is the way. Jesus is the truth.  Jesus is the life.

And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.  John 6:69

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  John 11:25

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.  1 John 5:1

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?  1 John 5:5

Deny Jesus Christ

Those who deny Jesus Christ, who do not believe that Christ lived, died, and rose into life everlasting, will be denied by God the Father.

We are all saved the exact same way, by the grace of God through faith in God.  Belief, faith in God is believing in all that God says He is in His Holy Word.

But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.  Matthew 10:33

But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.  Luke 12:9

They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto ever good work reprobate.  Titus 1:16

If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:  2 Timothy 2:12

 

Without Christ

The word of God reads that without Christ you do not have the covenants of promise, you have no hope of eternal life, because you are without God.

That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:  Ephesians 2:12

 

Antichrist

An antichrist is anyone who denies Jesus Christ, who denies that Jesus Christ did came in the flesh and is the Son of God, all people who denies Christ Jesus are not of God.

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.  1 John 4:3

For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, This is a deceiver and an antichrist.  2 John 1:7

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.  1 John 2:22-23

 

There are many antichrists in the world today.

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 1 John 2:18

 

Are you an antichrist?  God says that there are many antichrist in the world today.

Satan, the devil, and ALL his followers are antichrists, because they are anti-Christ, against Christ.  The devil choose to stand against God and all that God stands for.  The devil and ALL his followers are enemies of God, they stand against God and all that is of God.  The devil is against Christ and against all followers of Christ Jesus.

Remember, God says you are either for Him or against Him (Matthew 12:30; Luke 11:23).

We are either standing with Jesus, or we are standing with the devil.  We are either on God's side, or the devil's.  We are either an enemy of satan, or an enemy of God.

There is one particular antichrist, called the beast, that will be revealed in the last days, who will try and take over the whole world with his power (Revelation 13:14-18); but this antichrist/beast, along with the devil and all his followers will be defeated by Jesus Christ Himself, and cast into the lake of fire, to remain forever (Revelation 20:10,14,15).

 

Enemies of Christ

The word of God reads that enemies of the cross of Christ mind earthly things, their god is their self and will have an end of destruction.

(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:  Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)  Philippians 3:18-19

 

Believers

Believers are those who have been saved by the blood of Jesus, who believe with all their heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who died for their sins and all the sins of all the people of the world.  Believers have faith in God to salvation.

 

Believers are those who:

  • Believe Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world  
  • Believe Jesus rose from the grave (complete body, soul, spirit, and mind) and is alive today and sits on the right hand side of God, waiting to return to earth for His own.  
  • Accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God, as their personal Lord and Saviour, and received the free gift of salvation through faith  
  • Repented - turned from all sins (Repentance is required by God).  
  • Follow Christ in His ways of righteousness  
  • Believe through the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus, that we have been cleansed of all our sins, and will inherit the kingdom of God, because we are the children of God through faith alone by grace.  
  • Believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and God the Father and Jesus are one.  
  • Believe that Jesus will return one day and take all believers, dead and alive, home with Him to the kingdom of God  
  • Believe and obey the word of God  
  • Believe in eternal life and salvation to those who obey God through faith in God  

And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  Acts 8:37

That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.  John 3:15

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

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

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

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 5:24

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.  John 6:35

 

Believers of Christ will be raised up to the kingdom of God at the last day.

And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.  John 6:40

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.  John 6:47

To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.  Acts 10:43

But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.  Acts 15:11

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.  Acts 16:31

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

 

God raised Jesus from the dead, to eternal life in the Kingdom of God.

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.  Romans 10:9

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  Romans 10:10

For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.  1 Timothy 4:10

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.  1 John 5:10

 

Unbelievers

The word of God reads that unbelievers are those who do not believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God (John 3:16-18), sent from Heaven to earth to save the world from sin (John 3:13; 6:33, 51; 8:23; ), do not have faith in Christ Jesus to the saving of their souls (Hebrews 10:39), and that they are condemned and will not see life everlasting in the kingdom of God.

Unbelievers do not have faith in Christ Jesus to salvation.

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.  Mark 16:16

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

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

I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.  John 8:24

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.  2 Thessalonians 2:12

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.  1 John 5:10

 

Knowing who God is, is NOT salvation.  The devil and all his demons know who God is.  The devil and all his evil spirits know who Jesus is, but they refuse to make Him their Saviour and Lord.  They choose to follow their own way to death, instead of following the way of God to life.

You could have the whole Holy Bible memorized and still NOT be saved, the devil does.  The devil has every word ever said by God memorized, not chapter and verse, but date and day God said it, because he was there.  The devil has every word, every creation, and every miracle of God sketched into his memory.

The devil knows each follower of Christ, every believer of God by name.  The devil knows our weaknesses and how to trick and lie, deceive us into sinning against God.  The devil knows us better than we know ourselves, but he doesn't have greater power over us, because greater is God who is in us, than satan who is in this world (1 Corinthians 14:5).

Believing that there is one God is NOT the same as believing in one God to the save your soul.  Even the devil believes that there is one God (James 2:19), but the devil forsake believing in one God for the saving of his soul, a long time ago.  Satan rebelled against God and forfeited his inheritance in the Kingdom of God a long time ago.

Faith goes beyond knowing the facts about God, faith is trusting in God for the saving of your soul, believing that only through faith in Christ Jesus can you receive eternal life, inheritance into the Kingdom of God for eternity.

 

Appointed

We are appointed by God, to become the children of God, to obtain salvation by our LORD Jesus Christ. 

It is God's will that we obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. 

The will of God is for every person to receive eternal life through His Son.

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10

Through saving faith in Jesus, by obtaining salvation, we are appointed the Kingdom of Heaven, by the grace of Jesus, through faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord God and Saviour.

And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;  Luke 22:29

As the children of God through salvation, we are appointed teachers, preachers, apostles, disciples, to share the truth of Christ Jesus to the lost of this world.

Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.  2 Timothy 1:11

 

Disappointed

God loves and cares for each of His creation.

From the moment we are born, the instant that God breathes life into our tiny bodies (Genesis 2:7), God calls every human being to Him.  God gently pulls each of us to Him.

God yearns to have us near to Him.  God pleads with us to follow Him.  God calls us throughout our lives, calling after us.

If we do NOT choose to answer God's call in our lives, if we do NOT obtain salvation, then we become disappointed.

Disappointment in our live comes from NOT answering God's call, God's appointed call to all of us, to obtain salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.  1 Thessalonians 5:9-10

God has appointed us to obtain salvation, through Lord Jesus Christ, that whether we are alive or dead, that we should live together with Him.

Disappointment is NOT from God.  Disappointment is the life people make for themselves, when they choose NOT to answer God's call of salvation.

Only through Christ can we satisfy our souls (Isaiah 58:11).

 

Love God, Love Jesus, Love the word of God

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  Matthew 22:37

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.  Mark 12:30

And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.  Luke 10:27

 

If God were your Father, you would love Jesus.

Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.  John 8:42

 

God the Father loves those who love His Son, Jesus.

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.  John 14:21

 

If you love God, you will keep His commandments and obey the word of God.

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  John 14:23

As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  John 15:9

For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I come out from God.  John 16:27

But if any man love God, the same is known of him.  1 Corinthians 8:3

Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.  Psalm 119:140

 

Hate God; Enemy of God

If you don't obey the word of God, you do not love God.

He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.  John 14:24

Eternal life is given through faith in Christ Jesus to all people who love Him, who have faith in Him to the saving of their eternal souls.  Without faith in Christ Jesus, without loving God with all our heart, and all our soul, we cannot know Him or be with Him for eternity.

 

Enemy of God

Did you know that a friend of the world is the enemy of God?   We are to love the earth as a planet, as one of God's creations, and take care of it.  But we are NOT to be a friend of the hatred, the corruption, the sin, and the lust of this world.

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.  James 4:4

DO NOT be deceived, if you are condoning, living as, blending in with, this adulterous, lying, lustful, ungodly, unholy, corrupt, sinful, and unrighteous world, then you are the enemy of God.

 

Live in God's love

If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.  John 15:10

If we love God we desire the things of God, we want to be near Him and please Him.  The children of God abide in His love.

 

Live in lust

What is the difference between love and lust?  Love gives and lust takes.  Love is Christ centered, lust is "I", self-centered.

Living in lust is being "I" centered.  "it is all about me", "it is all about what I want", "What I deserve", "What people owe me".

Living in lust, living an "I" centered life, will never satisfy.  A lust centered life can never and will never be satisfied.  Lust is never satisfied.  Lust creates a void that can never be filled.  You can pursue lust your whole life, but you will never achieve satisfaction.

The more lust achieved in a person's life, the wider and deeper the void grows.  Lust creates a void of emptiness and unfulfillment and loneness and despair.  Lust can never be satisfied.  The more lust a person lives the more they want.  Feeding lust only creates the desire for more lust.

Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.  Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.  James 4:2-4

Only Christ satisfies and completes, only Christ can fill the void in our soul.

Lust is not of Father God.

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.  1 John 2:16

The devil is the father of sin and lust.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. 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

We are not to obey the devil, we are to obey God.  When we obey the lusts of the flesh, who are we obeying?

 

That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.  1 Peter 4:2

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.  Romans 6:12

How do we expel, purge lust from our lives?

But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.  Romans 13:14

 

How do we put on Christ?  Walk in the Spirit of God.

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.   Galatians 5:16

 

What are lusts?  The lusts of the flesh is sin.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.   Galatians 5:19-21

 

Lust only leads to one place - death, separation from God for eternity, lust leads to sin and sin leads only to eternal death.

But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.  James 1:14-15

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Romans 6:23

Sin always has consequences.

 

From the beginning of the word of God, we know that the wages of sin is death.

They that are Christ's have crucified the flesh, the sin and lusts of the flesh.  Believers live in the Spirit and walk in the Spirit of Christ Jesus and do not walk in lusts of the flesh.

And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.  Galatians 5:24-25

 

As the children of God, we are saved by grace through faith in God, saved from sin and death and saved from walking in the lusts of the flesh.

Lust and all who live in lust will be destroyed by God one day.

And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.  1 John 2:17

Those who have turned away from the lust of this world, the lusts of the flesh, those who do the will of God, who have faith in God, will live and abide forever in the Kingdom of God.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED - ALL people living in lust and serving the devil will NOT see God, will NOT spend eternity with God in His Kingdom.

How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.  Jude 1:18-19

 

Know God

Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.  And we have know and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.  1 John 4:15-16

 

Know not God

All people who do not love everyone, do not know God, because God is love.

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.  1 John 4:8

And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.  2 Thessalonians 1:7-8

Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.  They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.  Titus 1:15-16

 

Grow in Christ

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.  1 Corinthians 13:11

That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:  Ephesians 4:14-15

Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,  As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:  1 Peter 2:1-2

Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.  But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.  2 Peter 3:17-18

 

Do not grow up

 

For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.  But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Hebrews 5:12-14


This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.  2 Timothy 3:1-5, 7
 

These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage. But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.   Jude 1:16-19

 

 

Love one another. Love everybody.

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

And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.  1 John 4:21

 

Hate anyone; Murderer

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?  1 John 4:20

Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.  1 John 3:15

 

Spiritual mind; Spiritual life; Live in the Spirit

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  Romans 8:6

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  1 Corinthians 2:14

 

Carnal mind; Carnal life; Natural man; Live in the flesh

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.  1 John 2:16

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  Romans 8:6-7

For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?  1 Corinthians 3:3

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  1 Corinthians 2:14

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  John 3:6

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.  John 6:63

For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:  That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.  For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  Romans 8:3-8

For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.  Romans 8:13

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.  Galatians 5:19-21

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.  Galatians 6:8

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:  But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.  2 Peter 2:9-10

 

Love

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.   And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
 1 Corinthians 13:3-8,13

For more information see - LOVE

 

Hate

God is love and does not accept hatred from anyone - toward anyone

When the scriptures say 'brother' this does not mean just your sibling 'brother', it means anyone and everyone.

 

God says, that if we hate anyone, that we do NOT know God.

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.  1 John 4:8

 

God says if we hate anyone, we do NOT love God.

If any man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?  1 John 4:20

 

If we hate Jesus, we hate God the Father also.

He that hateth me hateth my Father also.  John 15:23

 

Haters of God will not see the kingdom of Heaven

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.   Romans 1:29-32

 

God says, if you hate anyone, you are a murderer

The word of God reads that if you hate anyone, that you are a murderer and will not receive eternal life.

Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.  1 John 3:15

 

If you hate anyone, you are lost in darkness

He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.  1 John 2:9

But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.  1 John 2:11

 

If you hate, you shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.  Galatians 5:19-21

If you are doing any one of the things said in the above scriptures, God says you will not inherit the kingdom of God, you will not go to Heaven, you will not inherit eternal life, you shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

But there is hope for you, through redemption through Christ Jesus.  If you repent of whatever sin you are committing, repent with all your heart and do not commit that sin anymore, and trust in Jesus and ask Christ into your heart, to be the Saviour of your life, you too can receive the gift of God, which is eternal life.

Just look at what is grouped with pride - murders, blasphemy, adulteries, - God takes pride very serious, and so should we. 

God says it is not okay to be full of pride.

Why are we to forgive everyone for everything?  Because God forgave us.

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.  Ephesians 4:32

 

Blessed are those who sins are forgiven.

Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.  Romans 4:7

Doctrine of devils

In the last days there will be many that depart from the truth and follow doctrines of devils.

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;  1 Timothy 4:1

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.  2 Timothy 4:3-4

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.  If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.  1 John 1:5-7

Jesus is the Light of the world and as believer of Christ we are children of the Light.  As believers we are to shine our light to the world, we are to be a light to the lost of the world and guide them home to God.

Jesus is the Light of the world, salvation to the world.

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.  John 8:12

Darkness

The unsaved, the lost, the unbelievers of Christ are in darkness.  All people who do not have faith in God are in darkness.

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.  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  John 3:18-20

But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.  John 11:10

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.  If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 1  John 1:5-6

If God is light, the devil is darkness and lost people walk in darkness.

People who hate are in darkness.

He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.  1 John 2:9

Darkness is satan; God is light.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.  Acts 26:18

 

Pray to God; Have a daily prayer life with God

The language of God is love.

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.  1 John 4:7-8

Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.  No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.  Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.  1 John 4:11-13

If we keep God's love and His word in our hearts, we can be sure what comes out of our mouth is of God.

 

Cursing, unrighteous tongue, swearing, language of Satan, the world.

But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by they head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.  Matthew 5:34-37

 

Peace

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;  2 Corinthians 1:3

Who comforted us in all our tribulation, what we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.  2 Corinthians 1:4

 

Depression, sadness, despair, hopelessness

So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:  Job 8:13

But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.  Job 11:20

Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.  Psalm 107:32

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  1 Corinthians 15:57

And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come.  Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.  Luke 11:2

Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.  For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.  For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.  1 Thessalonians 4:1-8

 

What is the will of God?  The will of God is to obtain salvation, through Jesus Christ.  Having faith in God is doing the will of God.  By accepting God's gift of salvation, you are doing God's will.  By following Christ and living a spirit led life, you are doing the will of God.

The will of God does not stop in our lives after salvation, the will of God never ends, it continues throughout our life.

We must continually seek the will of God, continue in our faith in God.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33

Self-will, Satan's will; the world's way; tradition of men

If you are not living in faith in God, you are living to yourself.  If you are not walking with God and seeking and doing God's will, then you are walking in the will of the world, self-will, satan's will and the tradition of men.

But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.  John 7:49

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.  Galatians 1:8

Praise and rejoicing.

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.  Matthew 5:12

Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.  Luke 10:20

And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.  John 16:22

But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.  1 Peter 4:13

 

Moan and groan.

Do all things without murmurings and disputings:  Philippians 2:14

Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.  1 Corinthians 10:10

Cease from sin; freed from sin; avoid sin; servants of God

Believers of Christ are not to sin.  We are to remain sinless, blameless, spotless until the return of Christ.  When we are saved, born-again, sin no longer has dominion over our bodies and lives.  Christ Jesus is our Lord and Saviour and has authority over us.

Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.  Romans 6:11-12

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.  Romans 6:14

Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.  1 Corinthians 15:34

For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.  Romans 6:20

Evil, Sin, Unrighteousness.

But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;  Romans 2:8-9

For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.  Romans 13:4

O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.  For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.  Matthew 12:34-37

But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:  Matthew 12:39

Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.  John 5:29

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. 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

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.  Romans 1:29-32

God is the winning side.  Believers of Jesus Christ, all of us, are on the winning team and have our share in victory!

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his deathIf by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 3:8-14

 


Have you decided to live for GOD?  Do you need salvation or do you need to rededicate your life to GOD?  Following are prayers to help you get started.  Pray from your heart to GOD and He promises that He will answer your prayer and give you the strength you need to continue in your walk of faith.

 

Prayer of salvation to live for GOD:

Dear Heavenly Father GOD, Thank you for showing me how I have not been living my life for you.  Jesus, I believe in you and believe you came down from Heaven, stepped out of Glory to come to this earth to set me free from sin and death.  I believe you died on your cross for my sins and rose to new life.  Jesus, I want that new life.  Jesus, I pray that you will come into my life, make me a new creature.  I repent of my sins and ask you to renew my heart, my mind, my soul, my spirit, I want you to save me.  Thank you Jesus, I believe that because I repented of my sin and believe on you with all my heart that I am now saved.  Help me and guide me to learn more about you and my salvation.   Guide the right people into my life that will help me know more about you.  Help me find a God based, Bible based church that I can learn more about the things of GOD.  Help me find my purpose in your will for your Kingdom.  Thank you Jesus, Thank you God,  I love you with all my heart.  In the name of Jesus I pray.  Amen.

Prayer of rededication to live for GOD:

Dear Heavenly Father GOD, Thank you for showing me how I have not been living my life for you.  I want to rededicate my life to you.  I repent of my sins and repent of my attitude of rebellion against you.  I want to serve you with all my heart.  I want to fulfill my purpose in Your Kingdom.  Forgive me of my sins, wash me clean, renew my heart, my spirit, my mind.  Place people in my life that will help me and guide me to serve you.  I thank you GOD for giving me your gift of salvation.  I love you Jesus, thank you for making a way for me out of sin and death.  I love you Lord.  Thank you and help me be the person you created me to be.  I ask all these things in the name of Jesus.  Amen.

God calls salvation "the fight of faith" as is it a struggle in this world to stay focused on Jesus.  We have so many distractions in the world today.  The best way to stay focused on God is to remain in prayer and remain in God's word.

If you are new to reading the Bible, may I suggest the books of John and James.  The book John tells you about Jesus and the book of James gives you practical life application.

If you have made a decision, please email us and let us know.  We would like to know so that we can pray for you. (Your information is kept completely private and will never be sold or shared.)

 

Have a blessed day in the LORD !!
