A Jeweled Crown of Glory,
Or Fruits of the Spoil to Satan!
I want to start this lesson off with the word jewel, because we are special jewels unto the Lord: As we see in Mal.3:17And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. This is because of some people getting together much like today, whenever two or more are gathered in My name I will be in the midst of them. Just for coming together to praise and worship Him we get put in a book of remembrance. Mal.3:16Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name: When we take on His name at our wedding with Him when we go down in the water (The watery grave to self and our prideful flesh! We come up out of the water in humbleness a new servant of God, walking in the Spirit of Truth; knowing we have been bought with a price we can never repay! We have taken on the name that is above every name; by the only name by which salvation comes; and that is the glorious name of Jesus Christ our Lord and everlasting Saviour!), we become His property, but so much more than that. We become one with Him, a bride and a joy to Him, a precious jewel, the apple of His eye, Deu.32:10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
He found us wondering around on His planet earth, and made Himself known to us; in Romans 1 we see this, starting in verse 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: This is the gift of grace given to us for our redemption, because He loved us from creation (Jn.6:44). He wanted a relationship with someone of His own kind, which is a spiritual soul. We are one of a kind to Him (In His own Image!) and in everything else that there is, that ever was created; there is nothing like us that does exist in this world, this is why when we come to Him and are raised out of the water of death into a new world and a new life; we become a special person; a servant of the Almighty God: We who have been bought, with the blood of God; we are no longer our own! (Ac.20:28; Ro.12:1-2; 1 Cor.11:1)
When we receive The Holy Spirit with evidences of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance (Ac.10 through 11:15-18; these are they who have received the repentance of God! He no longer sees you in your sin and has repented of Himself to destroy you!), this is when we become one with Him and we become Jesus’ peculiar people. His jewels, He then cannot keep His eyes off of us. He is always before us in the spirit trying to keep His own in all righteousness; if only we will allow the Spirit to operate in us. For in us lives all truth (Jn.1:17 & Rev.19:10!), and righteousness, when we keep ourselves holy (sanctified and consecrated 2 Tm.2:19-22; 2 Cor.6:14-18), unto Him: we are a well designed tool, even a weapon if you will, when we are wielding His scriptures to win the lost souls or against the adversary. Eph.6:13-17 says put on the whole armor of God, in order to be a well equipped soldier you need the whole armor of God in working order!
Thanks to Adam and Eve which were God’s first jewels He created in His likeness; sin entered into God’s perfect creation, which in turn will take a Godly solution to correct it! Because of sins power to alter everything in God’s perfect creation, sin will not be able to be removed until God sees fit to remove it (2 Pt.3:1-18) in the fire of purification. We are very much as like a jewel or gem that is in the ruff (in sin), before we come to the Lord.
A gem in the rough is just a rock.
If you don’t know what you are looking for and without a well trained eye, you could in fact pick up something that looked like a plain old rock; but if you were to throw it away; you would be in fact, in all actuality be throwing away a perfectly good fortune; unless you know what you’re looking at! This is how we appear to God before He picks us up and cleans us off (when we repent) and He polishes us up (baptism in the only name that counts, in Jesus’ name Ac.4:12) and He starts cutting the facets (He anoints us and shapes us with His oil the Holy Spirit; we are reborn again into His likeness, a new sinless creation of God!) we become jewels fit for a righteous KING of kings and LORD of lords; a gem for a Golden Crown fitted with prized diadems. Ex.19:5Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure (His special jewels) unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel (as we are grafted into that vine we draw from the root, Romans11:12-27). This is why we must be in the world, to lead those that are lost back to Him, but not of this world, for to be worldly is to be carnally minded and be of the flesh, which leads to death. Rom.8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
This can only happen if we put all of our faith in God Almighty by the power given us at our rebirth when Jesus’ Spirit was put in us (Jn.14:18), for all the fullness of the Godhead is in JESUS our savior. Col.2:9For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 11In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God (The New Testament covenant!), who hath raised him from the dead (Jesus is God’s firstfruits, Himself in the flesh raised by His own power; 1 Tm.3:16!). 13And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. 16Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: 17Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. Which when we realize God has manifested Himself in the flesh (1Tim.3:16); we find out who this Jesus really is. In 1 John 5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ: This is the true God, and eternal life!
With understanding comes our brilliance and glorious shimmering shine, as we are tempered in the trials of this world (Jn.16:33), we are becoming more like Him who knew no sin in the flesh, this Jesus of Nazareth. This is the big secret and the world’s greatest mystery, a stone of offense laid in Zion, this Jesus the stone (God Himself in the flesh, to remove sin in a supernatural way, in which only He could do!) which the builders (Israelite priests) rejected; I have made the chief corner stone (the foundation of salvation from sin) in which I will build My Church! This Jesus that we (because we are all sinners in heart) have crucified because of our sins that we inherited from Adam our first natural father, God has raised up Jesus (Our Natural Eternal Father, Is.9:6) from the dead and made Him Lord and The Christ (Ac.2:36 & 10:36 Lord of all!); Man, the Israelites, and all of us are responsible for Christ death on the cross, because of sin and how wide spread and powerful it is. It was by the grace of God that He is opening our eyes to see that He (God Jesus Christ, Mt.1:23! Who is God with us!); came so that you and I would not be lost; like one of those that are still lost and in the world who have not received His salvation or this revelation (The Trinitarian’s who practice tritheism! Which is just another of man’s paradoxes or oxymoron’s such as the term consubstantial, which when broken down to its terms means nothing to that which they claim can be used when talking about the One God we serve in Jesus Christ! All those who will die because they knew Him not: Jn.4:24 & 8:24 who will die in their sins if they don’t know who Jesus really is!). If anyone thinks they are going to get to Jesus and be judged and thinks’ they are going to be able to ask Jesus to take them to see God; let me assure you, your feet will never leave the ground come the catching away! Why? Because you know not who Jesus is: Who did John the Baptist’s prepare a way for? Answer; Is.40:3The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God! That is who John baptized; not to remove sin or to repent, Jesus had no sin to repent of; He allowed John the Baptist to baptize Him for one two reasons; 1. To show us they way to salvation, death to self in a watery grave and being raised out of the water in newness of a new life free from sin and joined to the Holy Spirit; to go and sin no more, to be free from the power of sin (Jn.8:11 and Jn.5:14) and the next eternal death in Hell! 2. So that all Righteousness could be fulfilled by the fulfilling of all prophecy and all that has ever been written of Jesus in the Bible from the beginning, starting at Gen.1: to Rev.22:21 for all scripture is about Jesus Christ (Jn.5:39) and His Salvation for us. To bring the Old Testament and enjoin it to the New testament in one Holy Bible for our admonition and edification, 2 Tm.3:16All scripture is given by inspiration of God (2 Pt.1:20-21; 1 Pt.1:10-11!), and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works! So much for saved by Grace and Faith alone, Ac.26:19-20 read it; it agrees with Jms.2:1-26; Paul never did away with the Law; when we live buy faith in the word of God in our hearts and we love our brethren as ourselves we have fulfilled all the Law; when it is instilled in our hearts and our minds as we mortify the deeds of this flesh and walk in the Spirit in love we have fulfilled all the law and have ourselves become the law which is written in our hearts and is always before our minds as seen in Jer.31:31-34! If you are truly born-again in the manner in which Jesus spoke in Jn.3:3-8 and Ac.2:38-40 ffs!
The Righteousness of Jesus in His people!
He that knew no sin and became sin for you and me, so that we might receive salvation, not having our conscience seared over with a hot iron; for if we do not answer this call, right now, we are as good as those that are still lost. Ready to be devoured by the roaring lion, see Eze.22:24Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation. 25There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof (This is today as well!). This is what happens when people listen to this world and the people that are not speaking in the Holy Spirit of the our Lord Jesus Christ! Satan of this world gets them, and they are now being deceived as we speak. But there is another Lion more powerful than the one of this world, the Lion of the pride of Judah, Jesus Christ the one who has overcome this world and has the keys to Hell. John16:33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. Rev.1:18I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
As long as we keep in His commandments (Jn.14:15 see also Lk.6:46; Mk.8:34-38!) and do as He says in His Holy Scriptures, we will become overcomers; Rev2:25But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. 26And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28And I will give him the morning star (There is only one true Morning Star which is Jesus Christ, Rv.22:16!). 29He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
The bright and morning star!
The bright and morning star is no less than our very own Lord and savior Jesus Christ. He will be our crowning jewel. When we overcome this world He will give us a stone with our new name on it, which only He and you will know. Rev.2:17He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. This white stone may very well be a pure gem stone, but oh what a special and precious gem it really is in clarity and transparency; for it is the stone in which was rolled away at His resurrection, (It is a stone cut out of that stone that was written, “death to all sinners” which we do not ever need to fear again as long as we stay to His will for us, which is His word to us!) which brings life to those who except Jesus Christ as their personal savior: When they ask Him to come into their hearts; those that want to start a new life all over again with the slate wiped clean; free for all sin that has come into their life. Jesus hung on the cross and drained of His life’s giving blood; His very own Spirit out on the ground for you and I, can we deny Him any longer, for to do so, is to become the fuel in the fire of Hell everlasting, where the worm dieth not (Eze.21:31-32 & Eze.22:30-31)!
The heat from the trials we face each and every day for Him now, is nothing compared to the glory we will receive when we hear those priceless words, when Jesus says, “Well done My good and faithful servant.” Through the trials of these last days on this world are only His furnace tempering His jewels to perfection, adding those unique colors to the nature of the stone He wants us to be, different from all the rest, each of us a special master piece, made by the Master (Gemologist) Potter. We will be His chosen vessels for His Spirit to live and walk in; 2 Cor.6:14-18 if only we come out from among this untoward generation; and He will be our God!
We see in the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance that there are only three scriptures that have the word jewel in them, also we see jewels being used in the plural case, we have it used 23 times. Only once is it used by God in a certain way, Mal.3:17And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
These are those who rightly fear the Lord in reverence and in Honoring Him in word and deed (Col.3:17). These are His overcomers of this world; God came to earth to have the power of sin which is death removed; from His presence as well as ours, but only after we receive Him and His salvation can we no longer fear the second death. Then the power of sin is removed on a personal level but not on a world level. He cannot and will not remove it forever until after the end of this age, after His thousand year reign; then the eternal judgment and death comes to all sinners, Dan.12:1-2 & Rev.22:1-21. His redeemed people are the most important thing to Him that there can be, for we are His glory and His glorious achievement, because we are created in His image; and He will not give His glory to another, (Is.42:8; 48:11). This means before sin entered into the picture, we were perfect in every way. Let me see if I can give some light; to the use of this word jewel, which is only mentioned once in the Book of Life, for this particular meaning. Number 5459 in the Hebrew is used only once for this definition: ce- short e sound cegullah- (seg-oll-law’) it is in the Fem. Gen. Passive (voice) or passively tensed. From a unused root word so this means it is to be a root word in which one could build other words from or compound words or phrases. This is an important word when you can use it to build a word never used before, by combining another word to it. For in its context we see it used in reference to God taking His Bride or His Church, His people, who call on His name and mean it rightly! This word is described thusly: to shut up wealth (as closely shut up):–Jewel, (peculiar, special treasure), proper, good (perfect), special (virginity as in pure, and unspoiled: Something for no other’s use!). I get the sense we see here, beings we are talking about a bride; it is a virgin who is spotless and is perfect in every way, who has kept herself for one purpose, to be His bride and a glory to Him, a priceless jewel without measure! Eph.5:27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. This is how a true Christian lives; to be Christ like! To speak as an oracle of God and to minister with the gifts that our Lord gives to us, 1 Pt.4:11!
I hope I have brought some kind of perspective to the Love in which the Father has for His children, for He looks on us like this because we are His bride. He wishes to pour out on us His blessing which are priceless jewels, if you will, for no one else can receive them but His children who have taken His name and live in His ways, His truths, and in His life’s examples for us, (Jn.14:6)! We are adopted into the tribe of Judah, and at least 144,000 from the tribes of Israel to be His bride to come. This is His Church, and the love of His very being and reason for His coming to us in the flesh! Which He gave for our freedom at Calvary; so we too, can live an overcoming life like His, in righteousness and holiness, without which no man will enter into His eternal rest and peace! (Is.28:9-13; Mt.5:17-20; and Heb.12:14)
Let us look at this so great love of our Husband’s: we see in Ezekiel: That God is about to use His most valuable jewels to adorn His bride, because we are in fact His brightest jewels He has in His tray to use in His crown. In chapter 16 we read this;
God’s Love for Jerusalem
1Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,2Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,3And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite.4And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.5None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the loathing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.6And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.7I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent ornaments: thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast naked and bare.8Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.9Then washed I thee with water (Baptism you are cleansed by the word of God, at your consecrating in the water of your public confession Jn.15:3!); yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil.10I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers’ skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.11I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck.12And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head.13Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.14And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD.
We have seen for ourselves just how great a love the Lord has for us, so much so that, He came and humbled Himself; the creator of the universe; our God and your savior Jesus Christ, who knew no sin became sin for us: (Tit.2:11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Does not a servant do His master’s bidding? This again shows we must have works being accomplished for His name; as the servants who received talents from their King, gained twice that was given to them, except for one, Mt.25:1-46 We must know the price of discipleship, Lk.14:25-35!
2Cor.5: Be Reconciled to God
12For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart.13For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.14For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:15And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.16Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;19To wit (Know), that God was in Christ (Mt.3:17; 17:5), reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. (We are to make disciples of all people and all nations Matt.28:19-20 & Mt.24:14; Mt.22:14; Mt.7:13-14; Mt.20:16!); 20Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Which actually concludes after the next chapter after 6:1-18 clear into chapter 7: 1Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God! Where is the fear of the Lord today?
We are to receive Christ Jesus for our salvation and to rest on Him and His word alone: and nothing nor no one else but Jesus Christ as our savior, for He was nailed to the cross of redemption and reconciliation, and by the blood of the sacrifice, His precious blood, we are redeemed by the power of His name (Jn.14:14), the name above all names, the only name by which salvation comes. (Acts4:12 neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved!) Let no one preach any other gospel to you than this (Gal.1:8-9),
Not Philosophy but Christ
1Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man. 3I speak not this to condemn you: for I have said before, that ye are in our hearts to die and live with you. 4Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying of you: I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all our tribulation. 5For, when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears. 6Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus; 7And not by his coming only, but by the consolation wherewith he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me; so that I rejoiced the more. 8For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season. 9Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. (This is why we baptize in Jesus name)
1Tim.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. This Jesus, God in the flesh has now an immortal body that is in heaven sitting on the right hand of God (sitting at the right hand is a synonymous for being in all power or authority, for God is a Spirit, (Jn.4:24) in His glory that he had before the foundations of the earth (Jn.1:1-14; 1 Jn.1:1-3 you see the Father is the Son, Jn.10:30 the Spirit became flesh; Jn.12:45! See Jn.14:7-9! God became flesh really ruins that trinity thing! Yet the oneness doctrine of God being one is confirmed in scripture time and time again; Zech.14:9 as well as Gal.3:20; Is.49:26!).
John17:3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was (Ecc.12:7 & Jn.16:27-28!). Jesus was always in the mind of God from before anything was created (Before the first “let there be was said!”); God had a plan and always will have a way that is above our understanding that we can’t comprehend but all things will be in accordance to His predestined will, for He has made everything that we need to know, He has made it known to us by His prophets, and apostles (For those of us who have His mind, 1 Cor.2:1-16.): For they are the foundation to the Church of the living God with Jesus as the chief corner stone Ac.4:11-12; Mt.21:44!
We are all predestined to fit into His plans of creation in that we are to be built up or tore down, depending on how we react to His plan of salvation; the choice is all up to us, to live or to die a second death, to live for eternity in “Hell’s Lake of Fire, where the worm doeth not and the fire is never quenched!” Mk.9: ffs…
2 Tim2:19Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity (those who receive Jesus as Lord and savior, these are those who take his name). 20But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour (those who receive His plan of salvation), and some to dishonour (these are the people that God knows will not receive His message of hope, to be reconciled to Him). 21If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work. 22Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity (Out of all the gifts the Lord gives us is Love for all the commandments, prophesies, Laws, statutes, sayings, and judgments hang on Love, without Love we do all things in vain if we do not have His Love in our hearts for our fellow man, this is our burden, or it should be, that non be lost 1 Cor.13:1-3 see verse 13!) peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
We have to make up our own minds because God wants all to come to Him out of love, He will have it no other way. He knows who is going to be His from the start, He sees to the heart of man, there is no hiding your true feeling: all you need to know is that you need to love Him and seek Him out and ask Him to show you Himself so that you can start to build a relationship. Psa.34:8O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. When we put our faith in him as Lord and savior, and confess Him as our God and savior Lord Jesus Christ; He will remove all our sins and cover them with His blood of forgiveness never to be seen or heard of again.
We can either be the brightest gem in His tray, or we can become as one of those condemned to die the second death in the Lake of Hell’s Fire!!! “Satan’s Spoils”. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of an angry God. If anyone can get anything out of the Bible it should be not to get God angry! Look what God has to say about His pride and joy, His bride when they rejected Him. Malachi 4
The Great Day of God
1For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.(To all nations of the gentiles around the world and to the elect that does not heed to God’s commandments judgments, saying and statutes yes all of them, and God changes not, Mal.3:6!) “That will leave them neither root nor branch.
But this is to the Israelites and those of us grafted in that are saved by faith in Jesus:
2But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. 4Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Israel will have a plan and does have a plan that has been in place since the foundations of the earth, to be redeemed by Jesus, for God will send two prophets of old to change the hearts of the Israelites just before judgment falls on the earth. But the gentiles fit under a different category for our fore father’s were Esau which God hated, because He was in sin, for Esau’s heart was not right in the sight of God just as Cain’s was not right before God. We will use Malachi for this next example of how God can show His wrath:
Malachi 1 (New International Version)
Malachi 1:1 A prophecy: The word of the LORD to Israel through Malachi.
Israel Doubts God’s Love: 2 “I have loved you,” says the LORD. “But you ask, ‘How have you loved us?’ “Was not Esau Jacob’s brother?” declares the LORD. “Yet I have loved Jacob, 3 but Esau I have hated, and I have turned his hill country into a wasteland and left his inheritance to the desert jackals.”
4 Edom may say, “Though we have been crushed, we will rebuild the ruins.”
But this is what the LORD Almighty says: “They may build, but I will demolish. They will be called the Wicked Land, a people always under the wrath of the LORD. 5 You will see it with your own eyes and say, ‘Great is the LORD—even beyond the borders of Israel!’
God is either Hot with a burning passionate love of His children, the apple of His eye, the best of His crown jewels: or Cold as a glacier’s run off waters, for those that reject His plan of salvation, after one rejects His plan of salvation it just gets harder and harder to come to Him. Satan is always in your ear saying we have time to do this later, we don’t need to do it right now, and we can wait. I like this one he used on me; you will never be able to be as good as He wants you to be so don’t you even try, because He won’t accept you. I used them all myself and have even heard worse than that from Satan; at one time or another, but Satan is the father of all lies, we do not have to believe him. We can rebuke him with God’s words and put Satan in his place and send him running from God’s child (Cain was supposed to do that too, Gen.4:7!), simply by telling him to get thee behind me, I am the Lord God Almighty’s child, and start praising God and the devil has no choice in the matter; he and his demons must flee from you (James4: 7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you!). Satan only has power over you if you let him have it; we have dominion over this earth, because God gave this right to Adam in Genesis. God even instructed Cain before he fell into sin in Gen.4 that sin was at the door if he didn’t control himself and put sin in its place and control it, we have this power over the devil, if we would just use it! If we truly do have the Spirit of Jesus in us we can and do have this power and authority:
Romans8:1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.
Now if any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. If we accept this plan of salvation and ask the Lord to come into our hearts and dwell in us as we dwell with Him in our lives then we can be born again; and be one in His Spirit of Truth. Jesus said He was the way, the truth and the life, John14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
We must become one with Jesus in order to have a relationship with the Father. Unless a man be born again he can no wise enter into the kingdom of God. Jn.3:3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again; he cannot see the kingdom of God.
We have two choices to either be Jewels unto the Lord to be used for His glory, or to be a harlot of the world, and live after the flesh and to be carnally minded, which is a death sentence, you are either condemned or you are saved one or the other: When we turn our backs on God and His word; He looks at us with contempt, as a harlot; look at some scripture that shows Israel’s harlotry; these are the scriptures that are right after the scriptures where He raised up Israel out of the wilderness, as if someone had cast out a baby into an open country side, left to die after just being born with the umbilical cord still attached earlier in; well let’s just look at Ezek.16: Ezekiel 16
1Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations, 3And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite. 4And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all. 5None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born. 6And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live. 7I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent ornaments: thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast naked and bare. 8Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine. 9Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil. 10I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers’ skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk. 11I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck. 12And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head. 13Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom. 14And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD.
Israel plays the Harlot:
After receiving a blessing from the Lord and being exulted;
Israel does the unthinkable:
Ezek.16:15But thou didst trust in thine own beauty and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was. 16And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so. 17Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them, 18And tookest thy broidered garments and coveredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them. 19My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD. 20Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter, 21That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them? 22And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood. 23And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the LORD GOD;) 24That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast made thee an high place in every street. 25Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to everyone that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms. 26Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger. 27Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way. 28Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied. 29Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied therewith. 30How weak is thine heart, saith the LORD GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;
31In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire; 32But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband! 33They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom. 34And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary. 35Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD: 36Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them; 37Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them roundabout against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness. 38And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy. 39And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare. 40They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords. 41And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.
Only because of the covenants with the Father’s of Israel will God relent from wrath on Israel
42So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry. 43Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense thy way upon thine head, saith the Lord GOD: and thou shalt not commit this lewdness above all thine abominations. 44Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter. 45Thou art thy mother’s daughter, that lotheth her husband and her children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, which loathed their husbands and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an Amorite. 46And thine elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell at thy left hand: and thy younger sister that dwelleth at thy right hand is Sodom and her daughters. 47Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways. 48As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters. 49Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. 50And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good. 51Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done. 52Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters. 53When I shall bring again their captivity, the captivity of Sodom and her daughters, and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, then will I bring again the captivity of thy captives in the midst of them: 54That thou mayest bear thine own shame, and mayest be confounded in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a comfort unto them. 55When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate. 56For thy sister Sodom was not mentioned by thy mouth in the day of thy pride, 57Before thy wickedness was discovered, as at the time of thy reproach of the daughters of Syria, and all that are round about her, the daughters of the Philistines, which despise thee round about. 58Thou hast borne thy lewdness and thine abominations, saith the LORD. 59For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant. 60Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant: (God showing His unmerited favor with His children, because of His righteousness not because of theirs!) 61Then thou shalt remember thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou shalt receive thy sisters, thine elder and thy younger: and I will give them unto thee for daughters, but not by thy covenant. 62And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD: 63That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth anymore because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.
We are now in those days when God is working out his last covenant, first with the gentiles, a people that are no people, to cause Israel to become jealous for their Lord and God, to see a nation of gentiles now becoming God’s children, instead of Israel. Right now the door of opportunity is open to whosoever will! Anyone can receive the blessed hope of eternal salvation, and learn to become an overcomer and heir to the throne, if they come as a child with a humble heart: To have a name that no one knows written on your stone (jewel) and receive the morning star (Rv.22:16; Rev.2:17) to become a jewel in our Lords crown of glory!!
Today is the day of salvation; for we never know when or what is going to happen next; at this time in our history, we have seen more catastrophes, and lives being just wiped off the face of this planet. Homes, lives, businesses, and jobs are just gone in an instant. And I can assure you it is just going to become more and more rapid between each of these catastrophes; which are going to become larger, closer together and more ferocious with each passing day. The closer we come to the rapture of the church, the more horrible these events will become. Everything that God had the prophets write down in the Bible have come to pass and we are seeing more of the prophet’s prophesies coming to pass each day, it just like the Johnny Cash song “It’s going by the Book”. The Lord’s word cannot and will not come back void, Isaiah55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
2 Cor6:1We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. (We are making an appeal to your good senses your conscience sake of your very soul, receive Jesus and spare yourself from eternity of shame and the Lake of Fire which was made before the foundations of time just for the sinners to come and share in.) 2(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured (helped, given aid to. Shown unmerited favor, by the grace of God we are saved, because He has opened our eyes to what will happen to those who reject His salvation, etc.) thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
I urge you if you have loved ones, get them and get to a house of the Lord that teaches apostolic scriptural doctrines strait out of the Bible without adding or subtracting from them. We have one way in which to come to Jesus and that is His way. Not some way that was thought up in the dark ages when the church had lost the guiding of the Holy Ghost. We must repent, change direction in our lives, be baptized in the only name given in the Bible for the remission of sins, in Jesus name, and be baptized in the Holy Spirit, with evidences’ of speaking in tongues, and you may just get something else added in at the same time like prophesying, beings Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy, Rv.19:10 see Ac.19:1-7! Acts 2:38-39 explain all that is needed for salvation in the name above all names, in the only name that has the power of God connected to it. Just the mention of His name and the devils and Satan tremble, Jms.2:19!!!
For each of us that bring in another lost soul we will be rewarded with untold riches, and unspeakable joy to know that we have saved someone’s soul from eternity in hell’s lake of fire and the devils tormentors. We have just gained another jewel in the Lords crown, which will be added to ours as well, which we can lay at Jesus’ feet. Lay up in heaven riches untold that will not perish. Matt.6:19Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. For if we lose our life for Him we will gain it forever; Matt.10:39He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. In Matt.16 we find out why; 24Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 27For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. Matt.10:37He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38And he that taketh not his cross (these are those who do not follow all the commandments, statutes, judgments, sayings, or precepts; you know the ones who do not deny the flesh etc.), and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. (These are the ones that seek out salvation on their terms, not according to scripture, they just try and do right, you know compared to the world’s standards instead of scripturally, you know like get baptized any old way, like in a bunch of titles instead of the name that is called out in the sentence, the sentence says to baptize in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. What is that name? There is only one name that is to be used that meets those requirements, the name of Jesus. It is a far cry to repeat a verse over someone at baptism instead of doing what that verse said to do! We must obey scripture in order to do what it is intended to do; not repeat it over someone thinking we are fulfilling a requirement! This is what King Saul did (See 1 Sam. Chapter 15!), when he lost his kingdom; he listened to his men instead of fulfilling the Lord’s prophet’s commandments of the Lord!) 39He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. 40He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 41He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
So right here and now you have to make up your mind to receive the Father, the Son of Man our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins, or risk going to hell for eternity. The risk is far greater not receiving Him, with disasters waiting and lurking around each and every corner. The glory and the abundances that He will pour out is beyond measure that we could never contain in our imaginations or on earth, when He starts pouring out blessing; Mal.3:10Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. This is how much He loves us, if we will come to Him we will not be able to contain Him; He will pour out of every part of our being, after we receive His spirit in us: We become His children with power to give evidences of His presence in us, that is how noticeable it is when we receive Him in His glory.
So we have to make a decision right here in front of God and all of His creation to claim Him as Lord and Savior; or give all of your God given jewels over to Satan for his bounty of the spoils. Nothing gives Satan more joy when He can get one of God’s saints, one of God’s prize possessions, one of Jesus’ crown jewels (Lk.22:31). You think the trials of this age are bad; you wait till the Rapture comes and then the end of this age, and then when you think it can’t get any worse the end of time comes when the judgment takes place, and you get thrown into outer darkness of hopelessness and the Lake of Fire with all of the devil’s tormentors and the rest of your sinful so called friends of this world, you wait to see how they will be in Hell!! Where there is no right from wrong just one pile of a decrepit waste of humanity all piled on top of each other, in a never ending ball of human filth, all crying out at the same time from all the torment, what part of crying and gnashing of teeth do we not get? God in His wisdom has made all things perfect, even Satan was an Arch Angel before he stepped out of line with God. So can you imagine how bad he can make it on those God has put him over, the Father of all lies and deceit, he will be your new provider, and giver of everything you don’t need, but that I’m sure you’ll receive an abundant supply of grief, for he was intended for this very job to begin with; God knows the beginning from the end, so can you imagine just how perfect Satan is going to be at his job?
The devil is not going to put anything over on anybody but you! You see what happened when Eve listened to just one thing he said that led all of us down a road headed straight to Hell by one little statement Gen.3:4And the serpent said unto the woman, “Ye shall not surely die: 5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil”. He is a liar then and he is a liar now and will continue to be forever. He was right though, we did learn good from evil, and now we know what sin looks like (It is disobedience to God’s word!); but we are far from being Gods. Until we put on immortality that only the Spirit of Jesus Christ can give, we are lost in our sin.
But if you read to the end of the Book that Satan is trying to keep you from reading; God’s Holy Bible, in it comes all of God’s words that bring life eternal (Jn.6:63; Mt.4:4 & Lk.4:4!). The power of God’s words are beyond our imagination (Is.55:1-13), we see how this age ends and who wins in the end, let me give you a clue, God does and all the saints of God; they win a life of eternal glory and riches with Jesus Christ our God and Saviour in the immortal flesh, with all His angels waiting on us to provide for our every need, as we serve the Lord God of the host, Jesus Christ! Come forward and receive salvation if this sounds like where you need to be, and become a jewel instead of the “Spoils of this Holy War” that we are engaged in; we have to make up our minds to make a change (repent) that will lead to righteousness, holiness, for if we don’t none will find him, For God said walk before Me and be ye perfect (Gen.17:1; Mt.5:48; see in 2 Kgs.20:2-6; being perfect before God can change a death sentence; 2 Kgs.20:1!), God told Abraham to walk before Him and be ye perfect and in Mt.5:48 we see Jesus saying the same thing 48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. From front to back cover of this Bible God stays the same (Mal.3:6), we are to be a peculiar people called out separated and a Holy nation, Lev.11:44For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth (Jms.4:4 see also 2 Cor.6:14-18 Commandments all!).
45For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy. To 1 Peter1:15But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation (conversation used here, means word and deed, or in all matters, Col.3:17!); 16Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
We are to sanctify ourselves this means to set ourselves apart from this world, to keep ourselves for a service of work unto the Lord’s will; which is His written words to us! For if the righteous scarcely be saved, 1 Pt.4:18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? And to not have the appearance of any evil; 1 Ths.5:22, but to overcome evil with good Romans12:21. That we may find ourselves perfect in the will of God, Romans12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. With man this is impossible but by the power of His Holy Spirit in us, we can easily accomplish this and much, much, more in the name of Jesus, we can do all things Mt.19:26!
We have to learn to love all with all our hearts for a child of God will have not one enemy in the whole world! A child of God can overcome any enemy with love for there is no defense against it. Prov.10:12Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
1 Cor13:3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 4Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (love). If we cannot find our way to Jesus in love we are doomed; without love we have nothing and know not God because God is LOVE 1 Jn.4:1-21 and if we are not as He is we have missed the mark, (Jn.14:6)! Jesus gave of Himself out of love for us and we cannot come to Him in any less fashion, this is required, everything in the Bible hinges and hangs on LOVE: It is the golden key that unlocks everything we need to enter into His rests!!! Only Jesus can teach you how to love like this after we receive Him and His Spirit in us this becomes no problem; if we put self out of the equation, and all of His children first and foremost in our lives we become the first of the last, when we humble ourselves; He will raise us up as long as we serve others before ourselves, Mark10:31But many that are first shall be last; and the last first. John14:15If ye love me, keep my commandments. This makes a disciple of God!! We are either
Jewels of the Crown of Glory or Fruits of the Spoil to Satan!
