I have more to say about this tragic event than they give us room to write in this forum: The remaining comments I care to make will be at this location is anyone wants to see why seemingly impossible tragedies can some how have a silver lining, that can come out from among all this chaos!

2 Tm.4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
Jesus says if we do not know who He is, we will too die in our sins, Jn.8:24; do you really know who Jesus is? Come find out at Lord’s Way Ministries, https://garylordsway.wordpress.com, and i too will have my final remarks there about this seemingly tragic event, that will no doubt turn into a life changing event for someone in one of these families hurt in this seemingly and hopefully unrepeatable tragidy. Only if we are found to be one of His will he lead us inot eternity holding our hands, Ps.48:14!
The related story is here at this location.
We see yet again another tragic event and at some time will no doubt come to a cause of driver error or even maybe vehicle or mechanical malfunction, which caused this seemingly senseless loss of innocent lives. We or at least we all should grieve for the remaining families that are still grieving over their lost loved ones. This is yet again just how quickly any one of us can step into eternity, and only those who are saved and have had a relationship in the spiritual realms with our Lord Jesus and have received His repentance’s for what all sinners must come to grips with and is the wrath of God upon all sinners no matter the cause of their demise, are they too going to be justified come Judgment day (1 Cor.6:11)? Have they or any of us done all to stand before the Almighty and appear to be without sin in His presence, this is what is required if us in Mt.5:48 and Eph.5:27!
According to Jesus unless we are born-again of the water and of the Spirit, we cannot enter into heaven, Jn.3:3-7 so that we can be blown to wherever God needs us to go and be a witness for him and win souls for the Lord as seen in Mk.8:34-38, or we are not worthy of Him seen yet again in Matthew Chapter 10:32Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. 34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. 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, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 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. If we cannot find the repentances the kind God is looking for we will never be seen in Heaven, Mt.4:17.
The kind of Repentance of God seen in the book of Acts seen in Cornelius’ house in the 10th chapter, which the Apostles saw in chapter 11, which lead them to hold their peace, that God had truly received Cornelius’ house hold the same as all the Apostles and had received that which Jesus talked about us needing to receive, to be with one with the Father, Jn.14:6, seen in Ac.11:15And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning (Ac.2:1-4). 16Then remembered I, the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost (This is the baptism talked about in Eph.4:5!). 17Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? 18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying: “Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life!” By which we are all sealed if we have the fruits of the evidences of that which they exhibited in the upper room experience, seen in Ac.2:1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them! 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance! This is the fulfillment of that verse in Jn.3:8, that is talked about in Joel 2:28 and Is.28:9-12 or you will end up as those in verse 13, warned about in Hebrews chapter 12, that have fallen back into perdition, seen in Heb.10:38 and 39!
We never know when we will step into our eternal realms as is evidenced in this horrible crash; and only those who have done all to stand before our Almighty God (Phil.2:10; Which is in obedience to His words given to us in His Holy Bible as seen in Jn.15:3 which cleanses us from our sins and makes us perfect in His eyes (Jn.14:15; Jn.8:51) can we be redeemed into His everlasting company!), will be those as seen in this scripture; Ps.48:13Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following. 14For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death!
Are these who were lost in this horrible accident truly going to share in the eternal glory that is expected when we truly have a perfect relationship with our God? Because it is expected of us, Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. For this reason Jesus said this in Mt.7:12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it!
If we have seen someone stumble in the ways that they are going and we are actually one of Jesus’ Servants who are called Saints of God, which in the Greek original in the word that the Bible uses for Saint here is the same word used for Holy (Meaning Set Apart, Sanctified, or Consecrated, meaning something that if for the use of the Lord only!), and without Righteousness (Obedience to His Word which is His will for us, seen in His words to us! Which is Just thinking and acting which lines up with the Word of God, which is being just or true as seen in Righteousness of God in Jesus, 2 Cor.5:19-21!) and true Holiness which is of God only that is given in the regeneration seen in Tit.3:5 of a new heart; are they doing what Jesus told us to be doing when we are found in His presence; are we or they that was in this accident where they lost their lives, going to be found to be worthy servants and friends of God? That is what we are to focus on, are we strengthening our relationship with God our Lord Jesus and are we going to be found picking up our weaker brothers in showing them a more Perfect way to God, Ac.18:26? Jms.5:19Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
Jesus said many are called, and in fact all are called to come to be with Jesus because that is His will for His creation, that none should be lost, seen in 2 Pt.3:1-18 and that we too are called out to grown in the knowledge of who Jesus is; or we too will face His wrath as seen in Jn.8:24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM [he], ye shall die in your sins. You see not many people actually know Jesus as the I AM of the Old Testament, seen in Ex.3:14 and again seen in Jn.8:58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM! And then those who are of the Sanhedrin went about trying to stone Jesus for claiming to be who He said He was! They said Jesus made Himself out to be God, but it was God who set about to make Jesus the true Messiah the truly Anointed or Holy One, who is God in the flesh as promised in 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 John the Baptist fulfilled in Mt.3:3. Just as Jesus told His own disciples in Jn.14:7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Which shows us who the Father is in Jesus, as well as the Apostle Paul knew all too well himself when he wrote this statement which became a verse of Truth in the Holy Bible because God cannot lie, seen in Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. We see who the God the Father really is! For this reason when Paul was explaining the mysteries of the Godhead seen in Col.2:1For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; 2That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; 3In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. 5For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ. 6As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Paul never mentions the Holy Ghost or the Holy Spirit because Paul knew who God was as seen in Jn.4:24God is a Spirit (Being the s used here is capital it shows deity, that the Spirit here is none other than the Holy Spirit, being we are called out in many scriptures to be Holy as He is Holy, Lev.11:44-45 and again in 1 Pt.1:14-16, because God changes not, Mal.3:6!): and they that worship Him must worship him in spirit and in truth (See Jn.14:6 and Jn.1:17; Jesus is the Spirit of Grace and Truth, Rev.19:10, which is the Testimony of Jesus Christ in you, Jn.14:18!). We cannot worship God unless we know who God is in Jesus Christ as seen in scripture not man’s inability to know anything unless he has been regenerated in Jesus’ likeness. With His Holy Spirit indwelling in you so that you can have the true interpreter who had Holy Men of God who spoke and had the words spoken to them from Heaven wrote down for our understanding of God’s Mind in us, seen in 1 Cor.2:1-16, unless we have been born-again of His Spirit, we can in no way shape or form be lead into the realms of knowledge of Him or His ways until we do have this experience, seen in Ac.2:1-4! 2 Pt.1:20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. Who is none other than the one seen in the verse right before these; 19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the “DAY STAR” arise in your hearts: Being regenerated and born-again of a New heart that is of God! 1 Pt.1:9Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. 10Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 11Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify (see Zech.12:10, it says they will look upon Me whom they have pierced, over 530 years before the actual fact!), when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Jesus is the Day Star which is the “Morning Star” promised in Rv.2:25But 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. 29He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. These who have done what? They held onto truth, which is Jesus Christ who is both the LORD and the CHRIST seen in Ac.2:36 and who is LORD of ALL in Ac.10:36, who is supposed to be in us all, Col.3:11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. Who is the Glory of God that will not be given to another seen in Is.42:8I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. As well as in Is.48:11For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? And I will not give my glory unto another. Which Jesus said if we would only believe He would show the glory of God, while He raised Lazarus form the dead four days old, Jn.11:40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? The same glory that is seen in the very face of Jesus, 2 Cor.4:6For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. If the Jews eyes were not blinded they would have never crucified the Lord of All Glory seen in, 1 Cor2:6Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
How can anyone have these mysteries by manifested to them unless they are as Jesus and raised from the dead of heart in the depths of sin of wickedness of this world, as seen in 1 Jn.5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness! This cannot happen unless God brings revelation into your lives by His indwelling Spirit in us as shown in the further verses in 1 Cor.2:9But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, and the deep things of God. 11For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God (Jn.4:24! The Sprit of the Highest seen in Lk.1:35 who conceived the Holy Thing or it should read Holy One, because God is One Zech.14:9, and there is no gods besides Him, Is.44 and chapter 45! Because Jesus is the First and the Last, Is.48:12 and Rv.1:8, 11 and again in verses 17-20!). 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
You cannot have the mind of Christ unless His Holy Spirit is in you (Jn.14:18), which will tell all about Jesus as seen in Jn.14:26 and Jn.15:26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of ME:27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning. You see only they who have come from above with return unto whom they belong, Ecc.12:7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Who we serve down here is whom we will return to, Ro.6:16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? The only righteousness we have has been given to us in the Word of God, and only those who obey His words in our hearts that have been refashioned into His Likeness, are they who know who Jesus is! As seen in His Scriptures, such as this one, 1 Tm.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. The same glory I was talking about earlier! Jesus has always been the manifestation of God to mankind and it is proven in these verses here as well, Jn.16:25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. 26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: 27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: AGAIN, I leave the world, and go to the Father. 29His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. They now knew who Jesus really was as foretold in Is.9:6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called WONDERFUL (Meaning secret as seen in Jugs.13:7), COUNSELLOR (Lk.4:18-22; Jn.5:39), The (AL) MIGHTY GOD, The EVERLASTING FATHER, and The PRINCE OF PEACE!
When we have known Jesus we have known the fullness of the Godhead in Him. Who has received of the Holy Spirit without measure as seen in Jn.3:24For John was not yet cast into prison. 25Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purifying. 26And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. 27John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. 28Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. 29He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. 30He must increase, but I must decrease. 31He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. 32And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. 33He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. 34For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. 35The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. Only can one doe the work none other can do unless God be with Him and in Him for He doeth the works as shown to us by Jesus in Jn.14:6-10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. The Father who is the Holy Spirit whose blood has purchased us in Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which HE hath purchased with HIS own blood! Who also Thomas learned too before it was too late for him who Jesus really was in this verse, Jn.20:28And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God! Beings God cannot lie if Thomas had misspoken Jesus would have had to straighten out Thomas right here and now in front of all the Disciples and now called to be Ordained Apostles, in Jn.15:16 and verse 20 says if we will obey Jesus’ teaching we will obey the Apostles’ as well, Jn.15:20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. Fro only they had the true Keys to heaven and they were used on the day of Pentecost in the same day the birth of the true church of God in Jesus Christ came into existence when about 3000 souls were entered into the Lord, and became one with Him in His Spirit and in his Truths! As they did what the Apostles said to do in verse 40: 37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. (Lk.11: 13If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?)
39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. (To all generations because all that comes from God is without repentances, Jms.1: 16Do not err, my beloved brethren. 17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning!) And finally one of the most important things in becoming Holy is this, seen in the very next verse!
40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation! Beings the whole world lies in wickedness ever since the time entered into the world by Adam and Eve, the whole world has become a child of wickedness, from inheritance of their forefathers, Jer.17:4And thou, even thyself, shalt discontinue from thine heritage that I gave thee; and I will cause thee to serve thine enemies in the land which thou knowest not: for ye have kindled a fire in mine anger, which shall burn forever. 5Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. 6For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. 7Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. 8For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. 9The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? 10I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. 11As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool. 12A glorious high throne from the beginning is the place of our sanctuary. 13O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.
How can man know the ways of eternal life unless he knows from wince his Salvation comes from as seen in scriptures not man’s teachings; Jn.5:39Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41I receive not honour from men. 42But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? Unless we receive Jesus as the One and only True God! 1 Jn.5:20And 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!
All things work to the good of those who are called, Ro.8:28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. Those who have received the holy Spirit which is of God and our Lord Jesus Christ and unless we have this we are still none of His yet still as seen in Ro.8:9But 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 have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. God uses these accidents to wake up His people to their fragile natures, and that they may know just how unpredictable life really is. He said we would have trails and temptations in this life but to be of good cheer for He too overcame the world, and so must we all if we are to be one of the few who are His chosen, who have been tried in the fire and refined as pure as gold and silver: 2 Tm.2:19Nevertheless 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. 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, and some to dishonour. 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, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart! The Lord held all of those in the wilderness liable to their murmurings, seen in Nu.14:28Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: 29Your carcasses shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward which have murmured against me. Mal.3:6For I am the LORD, I change not; Heb.13:8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. The Lord said there will come woes unto the children of God Mt.18: 1At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7Woe unto the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! The only safety in this world is to abide in Jesus and His Word abide in us, as we then will be seen to have a pure heart when we do these things out of love for Him, Ro.12:1I 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. Only when we abide in his words to us given in this Holy bible can we be seen in a more perfect way, 1 Cor.12:31But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way. As those seen in the very next chapter, 1 Cor.13:1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2And 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, and have not charity, I am nothing. 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. Clear to the last verse here:13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
When we have loved our brethren that is in the world and we have done it to the least of one of these in the world no matter who they are we have done it unto Jesus Christ, who is our god with us seen in Mt.1:23 our Immanuel. We have fulfilled all the law as seen in Gal.5:13For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. Mt.25:40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. All because our god became flesh and dwelt among us, as when we do these things unto the orphaned, the widows, we have become perfect, in the eyes of our Lord God, Jms.1:27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. This cannot be done without all scripture living inside of us, given to us by His Holy Spirit by which we test all the other spirits that are in the world, 1 Jn.4:1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Who preach to they who have twitching ears, 2 Tm.4:1I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. These are they who have made up an imaginary god whom they can serve their way, which St. John warned us about in 1 Jn.5:21!
There are many in the world today who call themselves Apostles, and who want to rewrite what has already been sealed by St. John in Rv.22:18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Many are saying we are saved by faith and grace alone, if this be true then why did Jesus say we will be judged by our works, and that John the Baptist said we will be judged by our works of repentance, Jn.3:19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. 27John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. 28Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. 29He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. 30He must increase, but I must decrease. 31He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. 32And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. 33He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. 34For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. 35The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. How is one to be in truth which is required in Jn.4:24 unless the word of God abide in your heart and you bring it forth every day in your Life’s actions, as required in scripture, 1 Jn.2:1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
7Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. 8Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. 9He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. 10He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. 11But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. 12I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake. 13I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father. 14I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. 15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.
Those who are of God abide in Him and He in them and they walk as He walked on this earth, and they go and sin no more, Jn.8:11; and Jn.5:14 or a worse thing will come upon you as well, see 1 Jn.5:18We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. Because as God is love we too have now become one with Him in that His Spirit resides in us as we are as he was in this world so are we too today, 1 Jn.4:13Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. 14And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 16And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 17Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
This means we have done all to stand before him come the Day of Judgment and will be seen in His eyes as Perfect, Mt.5:48 because we know all His scriptures as well as the scribes and Pharisees, seen in Mt.5:17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. Without righteousness and Holiness Heb.12:14Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: 15Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; who as Esau lost his inheritance because of his lack of interest in the things of God, and the cares of the flesh and carnality in this temporal life we all have for our trial grounds, he failed to look at what is not seen with the eyes of mankind. Jesus talked about four seeds that were sown and only one of those seeds came to full term and yielded fruits, that is only 25 % of the seed sown, Jesus said many are called but few will be chosen because they strived to enter into the straight gate. Strive in the Greek that is used in Lk.13:24 is the word we get today as agonize, we must mortify this flesh as seen in Ro.8:13, this tells us we are to be about our lord’s business according to His ways not man’s. Man has a way that seemeth right to him but is the way of death, Pr.14:12 and 16:25! As well as Is.55:6Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11So 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. When God speaks to us He has already put History in his mold and it is already formed before it is written by mankind in his journals!
With man it is impossible to keep all that has been written for man to keep without the Spirit of God in you! That is what Jesus was talking about in Mt.19:16And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. 18He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, 19Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 20The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? 21Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 22But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. 23Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. 24And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 25When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? 26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. If a man doesn’t know the cost of discipleship and what is involved in worshipping God in Spirit and in Truth how is one going to be saved according to the reality of God’s word to us? Unless mankind is put back into union with god by receiving God’s repentances of what he must do to all who are dead in their sin, we will never become one with Him in truth, as seen in Cornelius’ case in Ac.10: who fasted often and prayed continuously and sought God will all that he had. This is Repentances worthy of the pure heart behind them, Ac.26:19Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: 20But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance. This was Paul speaking, who also gave us this one in 1 Cor.11:1Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 2Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. As Paul told the women in the true Church of God will not cut their hair, and if anyone is contentious, we have no such customs. So go ahead and cut your hair and be contentious, but know this that people who are contentious will not enter into the Kingdom of God; because they have violated Jn.15:20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. Are we greater than God? If we judge ourselves here and now we will not be judged in the end of days, 1 Cor.11:31For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. You cannot drink of the cup of this world that lies in wickedness and the cup of our Lord and expect to get away with it. 1 Cor.10:19What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? 20But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. 21Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. 22Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he? 23All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. We are to strengthen the weaker brethren and pick them up who are struggling and we are never to allow our actions to bring a railing accusation to us or the church, 1 Cor.10:31Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 32Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God: 33Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved. Let all our actions be becoming to God; 1 Cor.15: 58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your (our Works) labour is not in vain in the Lord. Fro He will repay and reward us for our works, Rv.22:10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 16I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 17And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. This cannot be done unless we have been found in agreement with the following verse, seen here;18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 20He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
It takes all scripture working in our lives to be seen as righteous, that means just in our judgments, and without Holiness, which is separation form the world that lies in wickedness, we too will be found as one of these, Jms.4:4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God! All because you would rather listen to the world, that is about to perish in its wickedness. This is the adultery that the Israelites repeatedly did with their God, as they began to serve the gods of this man’s world, whom they have made up in their own hearts and minds, just as the world today, there is nothing new under the sun just as Solomon said in Ecc.1:8All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. 9The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. 10Is there anything whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us. 11There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after. Man keeps on repeating his mistakes, as it is written, My people are lost because of lack of knowledge, they are consumed because they have not learned to fear the Lord, in which is the beginning of wisdom, and yet they are in a famine still because they have not the heart of a servant who fears his master!
Surely out of tragedies, we can find time to reflect on what it is the Lord is trying to teach us in our loss of these children and their chaperon’s, in this terrible accident, which took their young lives still ahead of them. Who can make sense of it all, all we can do is trust in our Omniscient God, who knows the end from the beginning and we will find that in times such as this we can grow in the knowledge of our Great God in that He has given us yet another chance to trust in Him and to grow in faith and find a new way to love our brothers in this lifetime we still have available to us in the lad of the living, that we too can reach out to one such as one of these who are needing us and our prayers and support do that we too can be seen as approved when we do these things even to the least of these; we have done it unto our LORD JESUS! May God have mercy on all of their souls, while we reflect on the remainder of our days of this temporal existence we shared with them, as we try and fulfill what it is that the Lord will have us take away out of this tragic lesson of life: That we too can become better in these final days as we all watch for Jesus’ coming in the air. Where we will once again meet with all those who have found and worship Him now, in Spirit and in His Truths!
