Knowing that we are called by GOD, to LOVE our fellow man, including, our enemies.
Let us preach The GOSPEL, to as many, as we can.
For 1st Corrinthians 13:1-3 gives us this WORD, saying": Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not LOVE, I have become sounding brass or a clanging symbol. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all FAITH, so that I could remove mountains, but have not LOVE, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not LOVE, it profits me nothing.
[With that said,
"What profit, Beloved, is it to us, "if we claim to Believe GOD’S WORD. But have not, the obedience demanded by GOD, to LOVE others, and do the work that HE sends us to do?" For if we have, not LOVE, in what way, will it benefit us?" And how can it?"
For our LORD, clearly, instructs us, in John 14:15, saying": If you LOVE ME, keep MY commandments.
And among HIS commandments, Brethren, "is that we LOVE one another." Yes!" And just for reference, That BIBLE passage, is found in John 13:34, and reads like this": A new commandment I give to you, that you LOVE one another; as I have LOVED you, that you also LOVE one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have LOVE one for another."
Isn't the most precious gift, that we possess, our very LIFE?" Well, isn't it? And because it is, isn't it, evident, that the greatest way to LOVE one another, is by sharing The GOSPEL, that is able to SAVE?" SAVE? "SAVE from what?" SAVE from Hell, and "Eternal damnation!"
I know, Beloved, and am absolutely certain, that it is!" And so, the greatest way, to prove our LOVE for GOD, and one another. Is by obeying our calling, to preach The GOSPEL of CHRIST."
For 1st Corrinthians 1:21 assures us of this, by saying: For since in the WISDOM of GOD, the world through wisdom did not know GOD, it pleased GOD through the foolishness of the message preached to SAVE those who Believe.
To SAVE those, who Believe?
The message preached."
The message of The GOSPEL of CHRIST, Beloved, which is able to 'SAVE," unless one Believes in vain."
Let me share it with you."
1st Corrinthians 15:1-4 presents The GOSPEL, by saying": Moreover, Brethren, I declare to you The GOSPEL which I preached to you, which also you recieved and in which you stand, by which also you are SAVED, if you hold fast that WORD which I preached to you - unless you Believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also recieved: that CHRIST died for our sins according to The SCRIPTURES, and that HE was buried, and that HE rose again the third day according to The SCRIPTURES.
Because The GOSPEL of CHRIST, is able to SAVE." Once again, I assure you, that
the greatest way to prove our LOVE for GOD, and one another.
Is simply, by doing the work of an Evangelist, and sharing The GOOD NEWS of The RISEN CHRIST. Yes!" And in that way, caring about the SALVATION, of what is precious to GOD.".
For he, who has not LOVE, The LORD assures us, does not know GOD." And such, a one, in The EYE'S of GOD, is counted as nothing!"
1st Corrinthians 13:1-3 assures us of this."
And so, even though we might suffer by preaching The GOSPEL," we are each, admonished by GOD, that we are called to this.
For through Philippians 1:29, HE affirms it, saying": For to you it has been granted on behalf of CHRIST, not only to Believe in HIM, but also to suffer for HIS NAME sake.
And through Luke 21:17-18, HE warns us, and encourages us, saying: And you will be hated by all for MY NAME'S sake. But not a hair of your head shall be lost.
The WORD of The LIVING GOD, teaches us, that GOD, avenges HIS elect, who cry out to HIM, day and night."
And just how, Beloved, do we cry out to HIM?" Well, through prayer, and FAITH in HIS WORD."
For it's because, we Believe, what GOD had written, that we are often troubled by unbelievers. But that does not detour us!" For we know, that when our LORD, finally returns, "HE wants to find FAITH on the earth."
And Luke 18:7-8 assures us of this, by saying: And shall GOD not avenge HIS Own elect who cry out day and night to HIM, though HE bears long with them? I tell you that HE will avenge them speedily.
Nevertheless, when The Son of Man comes, will HE really find FAITH on the earth?
[With that said, Beloved, when The Son of Man, finally comes.
"Do you really Believe,🤔 that HE will find FAITH on the earth?" I pray that HE does," Beloved, because a great number of people, seem to think, that by their goodness, they will be accepted by GOD. And that their goodness, will inherit for them, the gift of Everlasting LIFE." But The LORD, HIMSELF, makes it abundantly clear, through Luke 18:19, that there is none good, but only One. And that One, Beloved, is GOD." Thus, Proverbs 20:6 gives us this report, saying: Most men will proclaim each his own goodness; but who can find a FAITHFUL man."
A FAITHFUL man?" Yes, a man, who Believes The WORD of The LIVING GOD, "JESUS CHRIST."
You see, Beloved, GOD knows, that when one Believes HIS WORD." We will speak, and do according to HIS instructions.
Thus, through Mathew 5:16 GOD instructs us, saying: Let your Light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and GLORIFY your FATHER in HEAVEN.
Absolutely nothing, glorifies GOD more, than a FAITHFUL man, who knows to be about his FATHER'S business.
And preaches The GOSPEL, of HIS Son, JESUS CHRIST.
He does so, because he knows, that every Soul, is precious to GOD." And that he who wins Soul's, Beloved, is wise." Right!" He knows, that the fruit of the RIGHTEOUS,
is a Tree of LIFE." And that, HE, Whom we refer to, as LORD; "is not willing that any should perish."
We know, that without our obedience to do, as our LORD, sends us, to do; "How will anyone know The Way, of Everlasting LIFE?
"We must be a shinning Light," Beloved, in order to draw the lost, out of the darkness, that the devil, himself, has drawn them into."
And so, today, every last one of us, whom GOD, has drawn out of darkness." Is called to "shine as Light," in this dark and dying world."🌎
And so, we each, need to be obedient to our calling, and preach The GOSPEL of CHRIST. Even though, we might encounter those who trouble us.
For GOD, knowing that we will, gives us this WORD, from 2nd Thessalonians 1:6-8 saying: Since it is a RIGHTEOUS thing with GOD to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when The LORD JESUS is revealed from HEAVEN with HIS mighty angels, in flaming fire taking Vengeance on those who do not know GOD, and on those who do not obey The GOSPEL of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.
I am not ashamed of CHRIST, nor do I shrink at the thought, of being troubled, or even rebuked, for HIM."
Right!" I am not afraid, to suffer for HIM, Who suffered such hostility, from sinners, while hanging on a Roman Cross." But instead, I aim to be obedient to GOD, and go fishing for Soul's, wherever The LORD, sends me.
And one of my favorite places to do so, is on Mt Rubidoux.
There, I like to shine The LIGHT of The GOSPEL of CHRIST, on as many fish, who will stop to face "the Light" that GOD has called us to shine." We are to do this, Beloved, because our LORD, describes the way to recognize HIS disciples, by saying: “By this all will know that you are MY disciples, if you have LOVE for one another.”
So the way to know, Beloved, that we are Believers," and disciples of JESUS CHRIST." Is simply, by doing the work, that HE sends us to do."
2nd Corrinthians 4:13 assures us of this, by 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.
[But those, who have yet to Believe," are "utterly quiet!"
Why? Because they have yet to embrace The WORD of The LIVING GOD, "as LORD, to obey."
For if they had, they would know to "GLORIFY HIM," in that way. Yes, GLORIFY HIM, Who would be, their LORD."
By their obedience, to do, as HE sends us to do." Yes, in season, and out of season, we glorify The NAME above all name's. Thus, we have much to say!" For we are not ashamed of HIM. And we prove our LOVE for HIM, by our obedience to glorify HIM, everyday." Yes, because our obedience to preach The GOSPEL, is "the evidence," of our FAITH in CHRIST.
Thus, the apostle John wrote, in 1st John 3:14": “We know that we have passed from death to LIFE, because we LOVE the Brethren.”
And so, I ask you, Beloved,
"Can others recognize your LOVE for GOD, by the LOVE, and care, you show for others?" Can they physically see, that JESUS CHRIST, is your LORD?" Then surely, it's because of your discipline, to take up your Cross, and brandish The SWORD?"🤔 For Mathew 25:14-30 makes it abundantly clear, that not to do so, "is something," we cannot afford.
For the scathing rebuke, that was spoken over the lazy servant, that claimed to be so afraid, that he could nothing, but bury his talent.
Is, simply something, that none of us, wish to hear spoken toward us.
"So please, Beloved, "LOVE The LORD, with all your heart!"❤️ And from obedience to preach The GOSPEL of CHRIST, never depart."
