The Read-Pray-and-Obey Message


"READ ✝ PRAY ✝ OBEY"

What does it mean?

•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•

✝ READ= The Word of the Lord is not the Bible, The Word of the Lord is His Son Jesus Christ (John 1:1-3). But we should read the Bible, the Scriptures, the Gospel habitually. Read it when you are happy, sad, bored, busy, just waking up, just about to fall asleep. Read it everyday continuously. Read it in many different versions and compare them all. The Word of the Lord was with God in the beginning, before earth was created. Before any books were ever written, the Word of God was in existence. So His Word is written on our hearts, not only on pages (Deuteronomy 6:6, Jeremiah 31:33). It is the reading of the Bible that shows God we are wholeheartedly and faithfully seeking Him, but it is the Holy Spirit of the Lord who will reveal God's Message to us (1 John 2:27, 1 Thessalonians 1:5). This is a form of communication with God; one way the Lord speaks to us is through the Bible. Before and after reading, we should pray for understanding, so that in the Bible we hear the Word (Psalms 119:125, John 16:7-27).


✝ PRAY= We cannot understand the things that come from God without His Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:10-16). The Spirit is the Helper used to interpret our prayers and relay God's answers to us (Romans 8:26). When we pray to God, it MUST be with faith that we pray. We cannot hesitate or doubt, or else the prayer is ineffective (James 1:6). Prayer pleases the Lord very much, and the faithful prayer can edify the church and heal the sick (Proverbs 15:8, James 5:16)! So we see that faith is required in prayer. And we see that prayer is required in reading the Bible and understanding The Word of the Lord. When we pray, we don't pray alone or by our own power; we pray in the name of Jesus Christ with the power of the Holy Spirit!


✝ OBEY= Jesus said to love each other and do to other people what we would want to have done on to ourselves (Matthew 7:12, John 13:34). So we should love and serve everyone with the strength of Christ. Obedience to God is following the Teaching of His Son (Luke 9:35). The Lord wants us to be doing what is right, and what is right is what Jesus did and said to do. Jesus came down to earth from heaven to tell the sinful people of the world to REPENT, change their ways and turn their hearts to God (Mark 1:14-15, Luke 24:47, Revelation 3:19). Living righteously, having a good heart, and producing good fruit comes naturally through the power of the Holy Spirit, but Jesus said we receive the Holy Spirit through repentance and baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38, Acts 19: 3-6, John 3:3-36). This means we must follow the teachings of the Messiah and put our trust in Him in order to live life on the path God has chosen for us. So faithfully follow in the footsteps of Jesus, and you will never fail to edify the church and promote God's will being done here on earth (see verses attached below).


•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•




John 15:14 NKJV↓
"You are My friends if you do whatever I command you."


Matthew 7:21-23 ERV↓
“Not everyone who calls me Lord will enter God’s kingdom. The only people who will enter are those who do what my Father in heaven wants. On that last Day many will call me Lord. They will say, ‘Lord, Lord, by the power of your name we spoke for God. And by your name we forced out demons and did many miracles.’ Then I will tell those people clearly, ‘Get away from me, you people who do wrong. I never knew you.’"


Matthew 7:24-27 ERV↓
“Whoever hears these teachings of mine and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on rock. It rained hard, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house. But it did not fall because it was built on rock. “Whoever hears these teachings of mine and does not obey them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. It rained hard, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house. And it fell with a loud crash.”

Acts 2:38 NKJV
Then Peter said to them,  “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

John 14:15-24 NKJV↓
“If you love Me, keep My commandments.  And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—  the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.  I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. “A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also.  At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.  He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?” Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.  He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me."


Matthew 7:12 NKJV↓
"Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets."

Acts 19:3-6 NKJV
And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So they said,  “Into John’s baptism.” Then Paul said,  “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.” When they heard  this,  they were baptized  in the name of the Lord Jesus.  And when Paul had  laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and  they spoke with tongues and prophesied.

I Peter 4:1-2 NKJV↓
Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.


Luke 9:35 HCSB↓
Then a voice came from the cloud,  saying: This is My Son, the Chosen One; listen to Him!


Revelation 3:19-20 NKJV↓

Romans 15:6-7 NKJV↓
that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.


Galatians 6:7-8 NKJV↓
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.


II Peter 1:3-10 NKJV↓
as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that  is in the world through lust. But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble;


Psalms 139:2 NKJV↓
You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off.


James 1:6 AMP↓
Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind.


Jeremiah 31:33-34 NKJV↓
But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord : I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord ,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”


Proverbs 20:3 NKJV↓
It  is honorable for a man to stop striving, Since any fool can start a quarrel.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord , my strength and my Redeemer.


Proverbs 30:5-6 NKJV↓
Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.


Philippians 2:3 NKJV↓
Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.


Luke 9:46-48 NLT↓
Then his disciples began arguing about which of them was the greatest. But Jesus knew their thoughts, so He brought a little child to His side. Then He said to them, “Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on My behalf welcomes Me, and anyone who welcomes Me also welcomes My Father who sent Me. Whoever is the least among you is the greatest.”


John 2:24-25 NKJV↓
But Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He knew all men,  and had no need that anyone should testify of man, for He knew what was in man.


Hosea 14:9 NKJV↓
Who is wise? Let him understand these things. Who is prudent? Let him know them. For the ways of the Lord  are right; The righteous walk in them, But transgressors stumble in them.


Titus 2:1-15 NKJV↓
But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to  be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed. Likewise, exhort the young men to be sober-minded, in all things showing yourself to  be  a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you. Exhort  bondservants to be obedient to their own masters, to be well pleasing in all things, not answering back, not pilfering, but showing all good fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things. For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.


II Timothy 2:14 NKJV↓
Remind them of these things, charging them before the Lord not to strive about words to no profit, to the ruin of the hearers.


Luke 8:21 NKJV↓
But He answered and said to them, “My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it.”


•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•

To sum things up:

Read = Faithfully read the Bible (we can't be followers of Christ aka Christians if we don't know about the Way, the Truth, and the Life; we need to learn from the one true Teacher!)

Pray = on our knees, knowing in our hearts that the Lord hears our prayer. Pray with faith, not with doubt.

Obey = Have faith and trust in the Lord. Love like Jesus. Do to other people what we would want done to us. Pray for our enemies. Turn the other cheek when hit. Give willingly. Hear the Teachings of the Chosen Messiah and do as He says. Follow in His footsteps and receive the Holy Spirit through faith in Him. Serve each other like Jesus serves.



God bless you, and may the peace of the Lord Jesus remain with you!

GOD KNOWS



Jesus can see deep into our hearts!

We can't keep secrets from God. It doesn't matter how far we think we have ran from Him, He still can see every time we stand up and sit down. The evil doers think that He is not paying attention to them while they make their wicked plans, but He knows their every intention (Psalms 10:11-14). No one and nothing can hide from God (Hebrews 4:13). There is no place on earth dark enough for evil to hide from the Lord God Almighty (Job 34:22).

•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•

Proverbs 15:3 ERV
The Lord sees what happens everywhere. He watches everyone, good and evil.


Proverbs 15:11 GNB
Not even the world of the dead can keep the Lord from knowing what is there; how then can people hide their thoughts from God?


Ecclesiastes 12:14 NKJV
For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil.


Psalms 139:2 NKJV
You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off.



Luke 16:15 ERV
Jesus said to them, “You make yourselves look good in front of people. But God knows what is really in your hearts. What people think is important is worth nothing to God.


Psalms 7:9 NLT
End the evil of those who are wicked, and defend the righteous. For You look deep within the mind and heart, O righteous God.


John 2:25 NLT
No one needed to tell Him about human nature, for He knew what was in each person’s heart.


John 6:64 NKJV
"But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him.


1 Samuel 16:7 AMP
But the Lord said to Samuel, Look not on his appearance or at the height of his stature, for I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.


Matthew 9:2-4 NKJV
Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.” And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, “This Man blasphemes!” But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts?


Luke 9:46-47 NLT
Then His disciples began arguing about which of them was the greatest. But Jesus knew their thoughts, so He brought a little child to his side.


•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•

Please don't stop seeking God here! I encourage you to go and continue to read the rest of these chapters, the full books, and the other books of the Bible. You have a question, God has the answer! You can never go wrong or fail to please God by reading the Bible and praying on your knees. Let's please the Lord and worship Him together in the Spirit of Christ! God bless you and peace be with you, my brothers and sisters!

Jesus certainly is God


Jesus Christ (the chosen Messiah) is God
We know that Jesus is the Father and the Father is the Son! The birth of Jesus Christ fulfilled the prophesy spoken by the Holy Spirit through Isaiah that said a virgin would give birth to the Child who's name would be "God is with us (Isaiah 7:14)!" There is only ONE true God; He is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is the Lord.

•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•

John 8:58 NKJV↓
Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was,
I AM.”

John 14:7-11 NKJV↓
“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?  Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.  Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves."

John 1:1-5 NKJV↓
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

Matthew 11:27 ERV↓
“My Father has given Me everything. No one knows the Son—only the Father knows the Son. And no one knows the Father—only the Son knows the Father. And the only people who will know about the Father are those the Son chooses to tell."

Deuteronomy 18:18-19 ERV↓
"I will send them a Prophet like you. This Prophet will be one of their own people. I will tell Him what He must say, and He will tell the people everything I command. This prophet will speak for Me, and I will punish anyone who refuses to listen to My commands."

Micah 5:2 NKJV↓
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting."

Luke 4:18-19 NKJV↓
“The  Spirit of the Lord  is  upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to  the  poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to  the  captives And recovery of sight to  the  blind, To  set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

Isaiah 61:1-3 NKJV↓
“The Spirit of the Lord God  is upon Me, Because the Lord  has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those  who  are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord , And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord , that He may be glorified.”

Psalm 110:1 AMP↓
THE Lord (God) says to my Lord (the Messiah), Sit at My right hand, until I make Your adversaries Your footstool.

May the peace of God be with you!

Regarding new Bible versions


Regarding New Bible Versions

I see a lot of people who say that new age Bible versions should not be used. Many Christians think that one version of the Bible is more Holy or more powerful than another. The Holy Spirit reveals to us that this is not the case. The Word of the Lord has always been, and always will be; He was there since the beginning, before the earth was created. Certainly, therefore, before any books were written. Even if every book on earth was destroyed, God's Word would still remain. Also, consider the fact that the text of the Scriptures was translated from the original languages (such as Hebrew) to English. Even the Bible translation that many Christians think is the "only pure" version, the King James Version, is a translation (in other words, an interpretation). If the Bible is translated from the original text into Spanish so that Spanish speaking people can understand it, and English so English speaking people can understand it, and Chinese so that Chinese speaking people can understand it, than that is just the same as the Bible being translated into easier-to-understand versions so that people who do not have strong vocabulary or who are not highly literate can understand it. Please, we need to encourage everyone, young and old, to read the Bible. Don't discourage anyone from reading the version that the Holy Spirit has guided them to; let the Lord do His work in their heart. He teaches each person in the way HE choses (Psalm 25:12). I would like for us to look deeper into this and pray that the Holy Spirit shows us how and why we can seek the Word of God without stressing about which version of the Bible we are using.

•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°


When a believer in Christ reads a version of the Bible, that is the way God has chosen to speak with them at that moment, and if that believer is prayerful to the Lord, faithful, and obedient, they will receive the Truth and know the Way. God will lead His servant back to Him whether it be through another follower, through a version or translation of the Bible that is righteous in its entirety, or through the power of the Holy Spirit. By picking up any version of the Bible that they are capable of reading or that is easy for them to understand and then praying in the name of Christ, he or she is wholeheartedly seeking the Lord and knocking at His door:
Matthew 7:8 KJV:
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

It was in God's perfect plan for the Bible to be translated into different languages and versions so that everyone in the world could share in worshiping Him:
Micah 4:2 KJV:
And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord , and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

The Word of God is always True. We know that some people try to change it:
Galatians 1:6-7 KJV:
I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

The Lord already made His judgment for them long ago:
2 Peter 2:1-3 KJV:
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

But my brothers and sisters, we know God's Laws, and we know the Teachings of Jesus Christ, because He has written them on our minds and hearts:
Hebrews 10:15-16 KJV:
Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;


Plus, as faithful followers of Lord Jesus we have the Spirit to help us speak with God and remember His Words:
John 16:8-15 KJV:
And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
1 John 2:27 KJV:
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

People who do not have God's Spirit cannot understand what comes from God, but His faithful and obedient children know what is of God and what is of the earth:
1 Corinthians 2:11-14 KJV:
For 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. Now 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. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But 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.

Through faith and obedience we understand God's True Word and use discernment to know Truth from trickery:
Psalms 119:125 KJV:
I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.
Proverbs 2:1-8 KJV:
My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord , and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

If we are lacking understanding, or have a question for God about His Word, or what He wants from us, or we have a question about anything at all, through prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit, we can ask the Father anything in the name of Jesus, and He will hear us and answer us because we believe in His Son:

John 16:26-27 KJV:
At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

If there are false teachers in our church who are changing the message of the Bible, God will judge them for their attempt at doing evil, but they are unsuccessful in their evil ways. For anyone who is not against us is for us:
Luke 9:50 KJV:
And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

These false people may plan on leading people away from the Light, but their evil plans are squashed by the Almighty Lord:
Job 5:12 KJV:
He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.
Psalms 21:11 KJV:
For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.


So we see that the Lord uses different versions of the Holy Bible to connect with different people. He knows that each one of us are made unique and that our minds and hearts work different ways, and based on who we are and our experiences He reaches us differently. When we repent is when we know Jesus, regardless of what Bible we pray with:
Psalms 33:14-15 KJV:
From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.
1 Corinthians 12:27 KJV:
Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
Revelation 3:19-20 KJV:
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

My brothers and sisters, with the Holy Spirit I beg and urge you to
READ ✝ PRAY ✝ OBEY
and please do not discourage other faithful Christians from reading God's Word just because they cannot yet comprehend the King James Version. Remember that the Word of God is the living breathing Truth and He was there with God in the beginning. That Word was NOT the KJV, nor was it any written document. That Word was the Gospel and the Teaching which is the Messiah. Even the KJV itself is a translation from original languages into english! Yes, the Scripture is used by God to communicate with us, but the Scripture is what tells us His Word cannot die or fade away! Please remember that even after the earth and all the Bibles on it are gone, God's Word will remain:
Luke 21:33 KJV:
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
Psalms 119:89 KJV:
For ever, O Lord , thy word is settled in heaven.
John 1:1-2 KJV:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.

The Pharisees carefully studied the Scriptures because they thought this would give them eternal life, but they refused to believe in Jesus, the One Whom the Scriptures tell about:
John 5:39-40 KJV:
Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.


So let us not disagree or argue over words. As long as we all praise the same Lord, we all will receive the same fair judgment. As long as we have faith in the Savior and pray to our God fearfully, we will hear the same message and the same teaching:

2 Timothy 2:14 KJV:
Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
Proverbs 25:9-10 KJV:
Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another: Lest he that heareth it put thee to shame, and thine infamy turn not away.

Help each other build in faith and do your best to spread love, not negativity. Don't stir up disputes:

Romans 14:1 KJV:
Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.


•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°•°


God bless you all, and may the peace of our Lord Jesus be with you. May God have mercy on every single one of us! All thanks and praise belong to our Father who is in heaven!

The Lord will save you!


LORD we trust in You!

The wicked and the proud will be wiped away by God Almighty. As children of the Lord, we rely on the Him to save us in our troubles and lead through our struggles. We seek forgiveness. We do not seek revenge. We pray for those who have wronged us, as Christ Jesus wants (Matt 5:38-48, 1 Cor. 4:12). We should not plot against other people. The plans of the wicked are squashed by God (Psalms 21:11, Job 5:12). It is right for us to love each other as Christ loves us, and do to other people what we would want to have done to ourselves. By being prayerful and using patience from Jesus Christ, may we endure faithfully until He returns. We should use the Holy Spirit, our fellow brothers and sisters in the church of Christ, and the Word of the Lord for encouragement. We know the Lord's return will be as unexpected as a thief in the night, but He is coming back... real soon.  So, let's be ready!

Psalms 10
Lord, why do You stand so far away? Why do You hide in times of trouble? In arrogance the wicked relentlessly pursue the afflicted; let them be caught in the schemes they have devised. For the wicked one boasts about his own cravings; the one who is greedy curses and despises the Lord . In all his scheming, the wicked arrogantly thinks: “There is no accountability, since God does not exist.” His ways are always secure; Your lofty judgments are beyond his sight; he scoffs at all his adversaries. He says to himself, “I will never be moved — from generation to generation without calamity.” Cursing, deceit, and violence fill his mouth; trouble and malice are under his tongue. He waits in ambush near the villages; he kills the innocent in secret places. His eyes are on the lookout for the helpless; he lurks in secret like a lion in a thicket. He lurks in order to seize the afflicted; he seizes the afflicted and drags him in his net. So he is oppressed and beaten down; the helpless fall because of his strength. He says to himself, “God has forgotten; He hides His face and will never see.” Rise up, Lord God! Lift up Your hand. Do not forget the afflicted. Why has the wicked person despised God? He says to himself, “You will not demand an account.” But You Yourself have seen trouble and grief, observing it in order to take the matter into Your hands. The helpless entrusts himself to You; You are a helper of the fatherless. Break the arm of the wicked and evil person; call his wickedness into account until nothing remains of it. The Lord is King forever and ever; the nations will perish from His land. Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will strengthen their hearts. You will listen carefully, doing justice for the fatherless and the oppressed so that men of the earth may terrify them no more.
