Do you know, John 5:28,
There, The LORD, HIMSELF, "speaks to us, saying": Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear HIS VOICE and come forth - those who have done good, to the RESURRECTION of LIFE, and those who have done evil, to the RESURRECTION of condemnation. [Then, HE assures each of us, saying]: I can of MYSELF do nothing. As I hear, I Judge; and MY Judgement is RIGHTEOUS, because I do not seek MY Own will but the will of The FATHER Who sent ME
The LORD, assures each of us, that the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear The VOICE Of The Son Of GOD; And those who hear will live.
["Yes, those, who are today, dead, in their trespasses and sins, and hear The LORD'S VOICE, but respond, with FAITH, and repentance."
Yes, those, who do not harden their heart, as in the rebellion." They, aswell as, we, Beloved," will live!"
And together, we will live, "Eternally," for The GLORY of GOD!
How do I know?"
Well, because Hebrews 3:15-19 assures us of this, by saying that those "who heard," yet hardened their hearts, against GOD, through their rebellion."
"Simply, could not" enter into "GOD'S REST," because of their "unbelieving heart."
Consider how it reads: While it is said: Today, if you will hear HIS VOICE, "Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion." For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses? Now with whom was HE angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? And to whom did HE swear that they would not enter HIS REST, but to those who did not obey? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief."
With that said,
Isn't it, abundantly clear," that it's only by embracing The LIFE-GIVING WORD Of GOD, through FAITH, and obedience." That one can enter, into GOD'S "REST?""
Yes, FAITH," in our LORD'S finished work of The Cross, that moves us to obey HIM, as our BOSS." Yes, as our LORD, GOD, and Supreme Authority!" HE, Is, Beloved, our
Thus, in John 5:26, HE has this, to say": For as The FATHER has LIFE in HIMSELF, so HE has granted The Son to have LIFE in HIMSELF.
["Right!" Just as The FATHER has LIFE in HIMSELF, even so, HE has granted that there be LIFE," Beloved, in HIS "WORD," JESUS CHRIST."]
And so, in John 14:6 HE assures of this, by saying: I AM The WAY, The TRUTH, and The LIFE; no one comes to The FATHER except by ME."
[Right!" No one can approach GOD, The FATHER, except by first, embracing The TRUTH of HIS WORD." And we, do so, Beloved, through FAITH, and repentance."
For we can't claim, that JESUS CHRIST, is our LORD,
and continue, doing the will, and desires, of the powers of darkness."
And since, we each have GOD'S WORD and Commandments, "written on our hearts"; "We have absolutely no problem, "identifying, what the will, and desires of the powers of darkness, are!"
JESUS CHRIST, is The HEAD of The Church, and The One Whom we obey, before men." Thus, John 5:27-29 assures us, that HE, has been granted Authority to execute judgement also, because HE is The Son Of Man. [So] "Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming, in which all who are in the graves will hear HIS VOICE and come forth - those who have done good, ["Done Good? Yes, those who have "done good," in embracing The WORD of The LIVING GOD, through FAITH, and repentance. Yes, repentance of doing the will and desires, of the devil." For through our repentance, we now embrace "The WORD" Of The LIVING GOD, through "FAITH," and "Obedience." Yes, those of us who do so, Beloved, will come forth." Come forth? Yes, come forth." Come forth to what?"] To the RESURRECTION Of LIFE!"
[But those, who have done evil, to the RESURRECTION of condemnation."]
It is an evil thing, to reject The WORD of The LIVING GOD!" Yes, to refuse to Believe GOD, and to refuse to do HIS will, and commandments."
For everyone who refuses, to embrace The WORD of The LIVING GOD." Refuses, to do, as, our LORD, sends us, to do."
For Romans 10:13-15 opens our eyes, by saying: For "whoever calls on The NAME of The LORD, shall be SAVED."
How then shall they call on HIM in Whom they have not Believed? And how shall the Believe in HIM, of Whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?" [Now here's, where we come in!" Listen closely."] As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who preach The GOSPEL of PEACE,
Who bring Good News of Good things!" [Good things?" Yes, the Good News of Eternal LIFE, by Believing The GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST.
And Believing The GOSPEL, includes sharing the GOSPEL!" Absolutely!"
And so, Romans 10:16, has this to say: But they have not all obeyed The GOSPEL.
For Isaiah says, "LORD, who has Believed our report?"
If we have Believed, our LORD'S report, "we will speak, not as pleasing men, but GOD Who tests our hearts.
We will aim to please our LORD, by preaching The GOSPEL, Beloved.'
For it's only, in that way, that HE will give, of us, a good report."
By preaching The GOSPEL?"
For HIS report, assures us of this, by saying: How beautiful are the feet of those who preach The GOSPEL of PEACE, who bring Good News of Good things."
Our LORD, has called us to this, because humanity's only PEACE with GOD, comes by embracing The TRUTH, of The GOSPEL of CHRIST."
And everyone who does, is empowered by GOD, to do, as HE sends us, to do." "To shine as LIGHT," in this dark, and dying world!"🌎
For in Mathew 5:16, our LORD, gives us this instruction": Let your Light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and GLORIFY your FATHER in HEAVEN.
["For after shining, as LIGHT, in the darkness." We will eventually, approach the end of our race." And we will accompany, the apostle Paul, in his declaration, from 2nd Timothy 4:7-8, where he, says: "I have fought the good fight," I have finished the race, I have kept the FAITH!" Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of RIGHTEOUSNESS, which The LORD, The RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have LOVED HIS appearing."
Everyone who preaches The GOSPEL Of CHRIST,
Is one, who will LOVE our LORD'S appearing."
And so, we are involved in redeeming the time, running, as if, in a "race," to reconcile this lost and dying world." Why?"
Because we know, that every Soul, is precious to GOD, and that HE is not willing, that any should perish!"
And so, willing to reward, "Soul winners"; GOD says, in Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the RIGHTEOUS is a Tree of LIFE, and he who wins Soul's is wise.
Yes, Beloved," he who wins Soul's is wise."
And so, I aim to finish my race, among those, who put the work of GOD, in first place!" Yes, those who have no problem, with preaching The GOSPEL, all day long!" For GOD, has called us out of darkness, to sing a new song!"🎵
For The GOSPEL of CHRIST, is like music, to the ears, of every true Believer!"
And so, I Believe, that how well we finish our race." Depends, on how well, we focus on HIM, Who on The Cross, took our place."
For if we focus well, we will know, that our Auto biographies, are currently being written. For the book of Acts, in the BIBLE," is the only book, in the BIBLE, that has yet, to be finished." It is currently, Beloved, "being written!" Yes, it is currently being written," with all the "RIGHTEOUS Acts,' of the Saints."
Yes, for every time, that we, Beloved, share the Good News, of the RISEN CHRIST." We have, "good," written about us."
And since our auto biographies are now, being written!" Let's not commend ourselves, just yet!"
For we are living Epistles, of CHRIST, written not with ink, but by The SPIRIT of The LIVING GOD."
Right! "Do not commend ourselves, just yet!"
For 2nd Corrinthians 3:1-3, admonishes each of us, saying: "Do we begin again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as some others, epistles of commendation to you or letters of commendation from you? You are our Epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; clearly you are an Epistle of CHRIST, ministered by us, written not with ink but by The SPIRIT Of The LIVING GOD, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.
["And so, Beloved,
Our obedience to GOD'S WORD," will have everything to do, with the way, "our race ends."
