I talked to a woman the other day, and reminded her, saying, Ma'am, please, just a small reminder, The LORD JESUS CHRIST, LOVES you." And her response to me, was; I know JESUS!"
I then, said to her!"
Then, surely you know about what HE accomplished for us on The Cross, in order to take away our sins?
So that we wouldn't pay for them, in a literal place, called Hell?" She then, said to me,' I don't believe in a literal place, called Hell."
So I asked her; "Do you believe that The LORD JESUS CHRIST, is a liar?"
'What," she asked?"
I then said, "Do you Believe that JESUS CHRIST, is HIMSELF, The WORD of The LIVING GOD, The TRUTH?" Or do you believe, that HE is, a liar?"
Because personally, I know that HE is The TRUTH, and can by no means, tell a lie!"
And The LORD JESUS, clearly depicts a literal place, called Hell." Mathew 5:29 reveals it like this": If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Hell.
So I, asked her; "Do you know The LORD JESUS CHRIST?" As your personal LORD," and your SAVIOR?" For HE can't be one, without the other.
So I again asked her: Is The WORD of The LIVING GOD, your BOSS, and your "SALVATION?"
Even as JESUS CHRIST, The WORD of The LIVING GOD, "Is mine." Or are you full of doubts?"
For it's a sad reality, but so many people are plagued with doubt regarding JESUS CHRIST." Even though many claim to believe in HIM, and HIS "finished work" of The Cross.
Many wonder, if they should follow HIM, as LORD to obey." Possibly asking themselves,
“Am I really willing to Take up my Cross," as The LORD demands of HIS disciples?
For HE clearly states in Mathew 10:34-39 the requirements of a disciple. There, in that passage of SCRIPTURE, HE makes everyone consider, if we have what it takes to be a disciple.
So let's consider it: "Do not think that I came to bring PEACE on earth.
I did not come to bring PEACE but a SWORD.
For I have come to 'set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter in law against her mother-in-law'. And 'a man's enemies will be those of his own household.' He who LOVES father or mother more than ME is not worthy of ME. And he who LOVES son or daughter more than ME is not worthy of ME. And he who does not take up HIS cross and follow after ME is not worthy of ME.
He who finds his LIFE will lose it, and he who loses his LIFE for MY sake will find it.
Within the pages of SCRIPTURE, a wise man once asked a couple disciples, a very intriguing question." Acts 16:30-31 reveals the account like this: "Sirs, what must I do to be SAVED?
So they said, Believe on The LORD JESUS CHRIST, and you will be SAVED, you and your household.
[In other words, Believe on The WORD of The LIVING GOD, and you will be SAVED, you and your household.]
Yes!" For Ephesians 2:8-9 assures us, that we are SAVED by GRACE through FAITH, and not by works, lest any man should boast.
But as clearly as GOD states the TRUTH, a great many fail to Believe GOD." And they work as hard as they possibly can, in order to be counted worthy, of GOD’S MERCY, and of HIS GRACE."
Even though The SCRIPTURES make it abundantly clear in Isaiah 64:6, that our very best works are as filthy rags, if we think that they would make us RIGHTEOUS before GOD.
Consider how it reads: But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our RIGHTEOUSNESS are as filthy rags;
We all fade as a leaf,
And our iniquities, like the wind.
Have taken us away.
And there is no one who calls on YOUR NAME,
Who stirs himself up to take hold of YOU;
For YOU have hidden YOUR FACE from us,
And have consumed us because of our iniquities.
But now, O LORD, YOU are our FATHER;
We are the clay, and YOU, our POTTER.
And all we are, the work of YOUR HAND.
Do not be furious, O LORD,
Nor remember iniquity forever;
Indeed, please look - we all are YOUR people.
Many are they,
who struggle to see themselves, as the people of GOD.
But why?" Well, possibly because they don't consider a critical question: "Can JESUS CHRIST be LORD of my LIFE, "if I'm not willing to do HIS will?
"I don't see how!"
Especially since The LORD, does ask each of us, this question: "Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?"
Because only by agreeing with the teachings of GOD, and embracing The TRUTH of HIS WORD through obedience. Can we know, that we are proving our allegiance to GOD. For from what I've gathered, HE won't recieve our worship, through our disobedience." And how will HE recieves us, as Son's, if we walk after the will and desires of the devil?
We must agree that the decrees of GOD are all "RIGHTEOUS" and "TRUE" Altogether." And we must seek to walk in the will, and the ways of GOD, in any kind of weather."
Who is it then, Beloved Brethren, that would say," that we don't owe JESUS CHRIST, our allegiance," loyalty," and obedience?" Wouldn't that be, the devil himself?" I am absolutely certain, that it is!" So I ask us to examine ourselves, Beloved, saying; "Can JESUS CHRIST, be our LORD, if when The LORD says," to do right, and to go right." We instead choose to do evil, and go left!"
"Didn't we die, Beloved Brethren, with CHRIST, when we Believed in HIS finished work of The Cross?"
How then," if we died with CHRIST, do we not walk in The LIGHT, doing the will of GOD?" We do!" Good." For if we died with CHRIST, Romans 6:7-11 assures us, that we will live with CHRIST. Consider how it reads: For HE who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with CHRIST, we Believe that we shall also live with HIM, knowing that CHRIST, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over HIM. For the death that HE died, HE died to sin once for all; but the LIFE that HE lives, HE lives to GOD. Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be
dead indeed to sin, but alive to GOD, in CHRIST JESUS our LORD.
From what I've gathered, to be dead to sin, is to be totally against doing the will and desires of the devil. And to be alive to GOD, is to be entirely willing to live for GOD'S GLORY, never being ashamed to tell HIS story.
Yes, The GOSPEL story that speaks of the finished work of The Cross of CHRIST, for the remission of sins. For GOD, not willing that any should perish. Desires that all would all know HIM, and what HE accomplished on The Cross, to wash us of our sins." Yes, and to embrace HIM as LORD, in obeying HIS teachings.
Yes, for GOD, wants all to know HIM." And to know HIM, as LORD." Right!"
John 14:21 assures us, that all who obey The WORD of The LIVING GOD. 'Will know JESUS, our LORD."
Consider how it reads: He who has MY commandments and keeps them, it is he who LOVES ME.
And he who LOVES ME will be LOVED by MY FATHER, and I will LOVE him and manifest MYSELF to him."
Yes, Beloved, we will know HIM.
So JESUS CHRIST, being HIMSELF, The WORD of The LIVING GOD. "Is The "One we call LORD," when we obey GOD'S WORD, and HIS teachings.
And so I'm praying Beloved, that all would embrace JESUS CHRIST."
For HE is calling us all to serve HIM, and
preach HIS GOSPEL, in order that we would know Whom we serve, and Whom obey. "Yes, and Whom we call, LORD, that way!"
For to all who won't, and even speak against, "The Most High," by their failure to act.
The LORD clearly speaks from Malachi 3:13-18, saying: "Your words have been harsh against ME,"
Says The LORD,
"Yet you say,
'What have we spoken against you?"
You have said,
'It is useless to serve GOD; What profit is it that we have kept HIS ordinance,
And that we have walked as mourners before The LORD of hosts.
["Walked as mourners?" Yes, walk without partying, drinking, and carousing!"] So now we call the proud Blessed, for those who do wickedness are raised up;
They even tempt GOD and go free.' "
Then those who feared The LORD spoke to one another,
And The LORD listened and heard them;
So a book of rememberance was written before HIM
For those who fear The LORD
And who meditate on HIS NAME. [Did you catch that, Beloved Brethren?" For those who fear The LORD? Yes!" For one who fear his "BOSS, and LORD," Aims to get his work done?" That’s why we meditate on The NAME above all name's, "JESUS."] "They shall be MINE," says The LORD of hosts,
On the Day that I make them MY jewels.
And I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him."
Then you shall again discern between the RIGHTEOUS and the wicked.
Between one who serves GOD,
And one who does not serve HIM.
Please be focused on being about our FATHER'S business, and having The MIND of CHRIST. For caring not about our own interests, but also for the interests of others. "Is having The MIND of CHRIST." A MIND that focuses" on obedience to GOD, by honoring HIS WORD to LOVE GOD above all else."
Yes, "and others, even as we LOVE ourselves."
For the closer we draw to GOD. The closer, HE draws to us." And by our "obedience" to HIS "WORD," we draw nearer." And by our proclaiming HIS "finished work" of The Cross. We come to know The WORD of The LIVING GOD.
"As our BOSS."
