Because of CHRIST, we don't have to have it all now.

If someone told you the absurd lie," that they found deciet in The BIBLE. "Wouldn't they be indicating, that The WORD of The LIVING GOD, is false?" In other words, wouldn't they be calling GOD, a liar?" Well, that could never be!" GOD could never lie!" Why?" Because lying is a sin." And GOD," Beloved, is not a sinner!" GOD'S WORD, is absolutely True! Though every man, is a liar." Right!" Every man," including every woman." For the woman, proceeded from the rib of a man. Adam!"
Consider how Romans 3:4 assures everyone, that might consider GOD’S WORD to be false," saying: Certainly not!" Indeed, let GOD be true but every man a liar. As it is written: "That YOU may be justified in YOUR WORDS,
And may overcome when YOU are judged."
Who in their right mind," would judge GOD, to ba a liar?' Not me!"
I Believe, when The LORD JESUS says,
“I AM The WAY, The TRUTH, and The LIFE; and no one comes to The FATHER except by ME.
[Yes, HE is The RESURRECTION and The LIFE”! And everyone who rejects HIM, will lose what HE freely gave each of us." LIFE!"
Certainly, it’s one thing to make such a bold assertion, says: I AM The LIFE; but it’s quite another to back it up." And back it up, The LORD JESUS did, by rising from the dead. Do you remember HIM saying, in John 10:18, in regards to HIS LIFE?: No one takes it from ME, [HE exclaimed] but I lay it down of MYSELF. I have POWER to lay it down, and I have POWER to take it again. This command I have recieved from MY FATHER.
“Because we believe that The Son of GOD died and rose again.” We are no longer enemies of GOD," we are HIS friends.' For HE HIMSELF made this absolutely clear, when HE said in John 15:13-17
Greater LOVE has no one than this, than to lay down one's LIFE for HIS friends. You are MY friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his MASTER is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from MY FATHER I have made known to you. You did not choose ME, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask The FATHER in MY NAME HE may give you. These things I command you, that you LOVE one another.
Because we believe in our LORD'S finished work of The Cross, for the remission of sins.
“Our whole future is full of the dawn of eternal morning, and we can look forward to the day that we see Everlasting LIFE, without mourning."
from what I've gathered,
we are soon to recieve a KINGDOM, which cannot be shaken. For Hebrews 12:28-29 assures us, saying: Therefore, since we are recieving a KINGDOM which cannot be shaken, let us have GRACE, by which we may serve GOD acceptably with reverence and Godly fear. For our GOD is a consuming fire.
[And because HE is,' 1st Thessalonians 4:1-8 gives us this admonition, saying: Finally, then, Brethren, we urge and exhort you in The LORD JESUS that you should abound more and more, just as you recieved from us how you ought to walk and to please GOD, for you know what commandments we gave you through The LORD JESUS.
For this is the will of GOD your SANCTIFICATION: [Right! That we should do the will and desires of GOD, and not falter."] that you should abstain from sexual immorality, that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in SANCTIFICATION and HONOR, not in passion of lust, like the gentiles who do not know GOD; that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because The LORD is the avenger of all such, as we also forwarned you and testified. For GOD did not call us to uncleanness, but in Holiness. Therefore he who rejects this, does not refuse man, but GOD, Who has also given us HIS HOLY SPIRIT.
GOD has given to each of us," of HIS SPIRIT." But why? Well, so that we know Whom we obey. Right!" So that we know, Whom we worship through obedience. And call LORD," in
that way." For Romans 6:15-19 teaches us, that we are slaves to "Whom we obey."
Consider how it reads: What then, shall we sin because we are not under law but under GRACE? Certainly not!" Do you not know that to Whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that One's slaves Whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to RIGHTEOUSNESS?
But GOD be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of RIGHTEOUSNESS. [In other words, having once been slaves of the devil, because we did the will and desires of the devil. Through our FAITH in the finished work of The Cross of CHRIST, we became slaves of GOD. And we now LOVE GOD," and doing the will of GOD.]
I speak in human terms [Paul says] because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members of slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of RIGHTEOUSNESS for Holiness.
["I once overheard someone say, "CHRIST is our RIGHTEOUSNESS, HE is, our HOLINESS!"]
And I say, Yes!"
"Doing the will and desires of CHRIST, our LORD." Is our RIGHTEOUSNESS!"]
The Son of GOD died and rose again, so that we would no longer be slaves of sin, and to the powers of darkness, friends."
We are friends of GOD, Beloved!" Because we do the will of CHRIST JESUS, our LORD. For when HE rose from the dead, HE became, of The BODY. "The HEAD!" Right!" And we are "The BODY!
And The BODY, owes The HEAD, one thing! "OBEDIENCE."
For if we won't call JESUS, LORD, with our OBEDIENCE.
HE won't recieve our worship," through our disobedience.
[All I know, is that if we Believe GOD." We will obey The WORD, and instruction, of GOD.
For 2nd Corrinthians 4:13-15 assures us, saying: And since we have the same SPIRIT of FAITH, according to what is written, "I Believed, and therefore I spoke," we also Believe and therefore speak, knowing that HE Who raised up The LORD JESUS will also raise us up with JESUS, and will present us with you. For all things are for your sakes, that GRACE, having spread through the many, may cause Thanksgiving to abound to The GLORY Of GOD.
Our LORD'S "RESURRECTION," is the guarantee that GOD will bring us up with JESUS.
Yes we," Beloved, whom having Believed, embrace JESUS CHRIST through FAITH.
And because of our FAITH in CHRIST," we are a thinking, feeling, remembering, recognizable people, who will live FOREVER!"
Yes, "FOREVER, for The GLORY of GOD!" And that means living out what Ecclesiastes 3:11-13 teaches us, in regards to the thought of Eternity that GOD has placed in our hearts. That passage, Beloved, reads like this: HE has made everything beautiful in its time. Also HE has placed Eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that GOD does from beginning to end. [But GOD," knowing all things, says this]: I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor - it is the gift of GOD.
In HIS "GOODNESS," GOD has prepared all things for us to enjoy." HE has made The WAY of Everlasting LIFE, so that by our FAITH in HIS WORD. We would walk in obedience to what created us, and gave to each of us, "LIFE."
The WORD of The LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST. "HE is, our LIFE!" So when the time finally comes, it's going to be amazing; living in a world without pain, sorrow, or the dread of suffering tomorrow." It's going to be absolutely amazing, seeing our LORD, Who LOVES us, and gave HIMSELF to the suffering of The Cross, for us." We will be with HIM,
"FOREVER!" And we will be with one another. And JESUS, our BROTHER!" Yes, "BROTHER!"
For Romans 8:29 assures us of this, by saying: For whom HE foreknew, HE also predestined to be conformed to the image of HIS Son, that HE might be The FIRSTBORN among many Brethren.
[Many Brethren, Beloved,
The LORD will call for us, Brethren, from the clouds,
to meet HIM in the air. And HE will refer to us, as friends."
Meanwhile, 2nd Timothy 4:5 calls us to be watchful, endure afflictions, and to do the work of an Evangelist, and to fulfill our Ministry.
[Yet, consider this other meaning in that passage of SCRIPTURE.
Since we now have what is temporary, and Eternity in the next LIFE." We don’t have to “have it all” now. We can live in broken bodies for a time, and endure poverty and hardship for a season. We can face loneliness, heartache, and pain, knowing that when our LORD died on The Cross. HE took away our shame!" HE suffered, so that we could be made whole, and complete."
So now that we've been BORN AGAIN," we can look forward to LIFE in HEAVEN."
FOREVER!" Yes, "FOREVER" with
