For God stands with you always and never puts on us more than we can bear. He delivers us from evil and restores us to His glory. His promises and Word remains true even when the road ahead is hard to see. Faith in Him carries us through every trial. Every tribulation. Every attack of the evil one. Hold on always to His unchanging hand.
Or should I say “Praise in there.”?
Remember y’all; ALL things happen for a reason. Praise your way out, Amen
There is NO name as Power–weilding as The name of Jesus! Amen
No ‘name‘ has The Power or Majesty granted Jesus!!! Glory! For He went through “exactly” what we are going through and in prayer, found The way, The truth and imagine this – The Life!
Jesus is The firstborn among Man (for those of you who may think this ‘sexist’, Wo-Man and Man! From man, woman was created.
I feel a sermon coming on. Hold tight! Here we go!
The Man was Created first in God’s image! God is not “Human!” He is Spirit as in Spirit and Truth (no lie exists in Him!)
Check these out!
In hope of eternal life, which God, who never lies, promised before the ages began. Titus 1:2
So that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. Hebrews 6:18
God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it? Numbers 23:19
And also the Glory of Israel will not lie or have regret, for He is not a man, that He should have regret. 1 Samuel 15:29
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. James 1:13
If we are faithless, He remains faithful— for He cannot deny Himself. 2 Timothy 2:13
Y’all, What is The Character of God? I will let you meditate on this as you re-read or remember what was shared above.
When and if we lie, it is said: “You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. he was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44
Wondering where that verse was? We have a Spirit in us, express what is in you, what you are now made of being a believer. ALL things in you (believe it or not) have become new! Live it! Amen
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
2 Corins 5:17
As we continue our feed on The Word, “Anyone hungry? Feed up! Amen”
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
Sanctify them in the truth; Your Word is truth! John 17:17
Y’all, not an iota of untuth exists in our Father! Yes, He has been angry and detests sin. Right quick:
“To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth.So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again.
Though the mountains be shakenand the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:9,10
And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and source of eternal life. 1 John 5:20
Eternal life? Wow! We go even further down the rabbit hole! What is life? Right in The Word, we read of “Eternal life.” What is Eternal death? Are we aware of the emotions surrounding the loss of a loved one? How about you, youself?
eternal death is the fate that awaits all people who ultimately reject God, reject the gospel of His Son, Jesus Christ, and remain in their sin and disobedience. Physical death is a one-time experience. Eternal death, on the other hand, is everlasting. It is a death that continues through eternity, a spiritual death that is experienced on a continual basis. Just as spiritual life, by grace through faith in Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9) is everlasting life, eternal death is never-ending.
The most important question to be answered is “Does the Bible teach the doctrine of eternal death?” If the Bible doesn’t teach eternal death, then we can pack up and go home because there is no further debate on the issue. God’s Word, the Bible, is the infallible rule of faith and practice, and as such we must believe and teach only what it clearly teaches, and the Bible clearly teaches the doctrine of eternal death. We can point to several passages that explicitly state this, but for our purposes, only three will be needed, one from the Old Testament and two from the New.
• And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. (Daniel 12:2 ESV)
• And [the wicked] will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. (Matthew 25:46 ESV)
• And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:15 ESV). In verse 10, we are told that the Lake of Fire burns “forever and ever.”
All three of these passages (and more could have been added) have as their main context the scene of final judgment. In other words, when Christ returns, three things will occur: 1) The general resurrection of “the living and the dead”; 2) the final judgment; and 3) the inauguration of the eternal state. Each of these passages demonstrates that during the final judgment of all people, Jesus will separate the righteous from the wicked. The righteous will be ushered into the final state of glory, while the wicked will be sent to the lake of fire for eternal punishment and torment. Note too (particularly in the Daniel and Matthew passages) that the same adjective (“everlasting” or “eternal”) is used to modify both “life” and “punishment/contempt.” What is true about one (life) must be true about the other (punishment), that both are eternal and last forever.
The doctrine of eternal death is not a popular doctrine to teach or proclaim. To do so often opens one up to scorn and ridicule. However, we must not let that detract us from what the Bible so clearly teaches; namely, that due to our being born in sin and trespasses, we are under the just condemnation of God for our sin. If we do not embrace the saving message of Jesus Christ, we will perish in our sin and trespasses and be under God’s just judgment for our sin—eternal death. This is a sobering doctrine and requires the utmost care and compassion in its presentation.
This has gone on for a bit! Let us fold it up with a word of prayer:
Lord God, our ALL- without You we have nothing, Amen. Even if here on Earth we have everything. Without You we have nothing. In Your Kingdom we wish and move to be with every moment, every breath we take so that with our last breath we start our Spiritual existence with You, Amen.
Where we stand wrong, we confess our wrongs -lies, selfishness, no observance of You – Who, What, Wherr and How You are, we humbly come before Your throne of forgiveness and grace. Jesus stood in for us, with His blood we are saved and washed clean, Amen
LORD, be glorified in our ALL in Jesus’ name we pray, Amen
