Inheriting The Kingdom Of God

Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know you not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dies no more; death have no more dominion over him.

For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he lives, he lives unto God. Likewise reckon you also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in the lusts thereof.

Neither yield you your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace.

What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

But God be thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness.

I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as you have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

For when you were the servants of sin, you were free from righteousness. What fruit had you then in those things whereof you are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

For godly sorrow works repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world works death.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Blessed 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. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whore-mongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie.

1 Cor. 6:9-11;2 Pet. 3:18;2 Cor. 7:10;Rom. 6 Chapter;2 Pet. 3:9;Rev.22:14-15

God's Throne Is In Heaven!

You have ascended on high, You have led captivity, captive: You have received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them. 

Who has ascended up into heaven, or descended? Who have gathered the wind in his fists? Who have bound the waters in a garment? Who have established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and What is his Son's name, if you can tell?

And no man have ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

Jesus says unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he says it himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit you on my right hand, til I make your enemies your footstool.

Wherefore he say, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity, captive, and gave gifts unto men. 

Prov. 30:4;John 3:13;John 20:17;Acts. 2:34;Eph. 4:8 

God is, still on the Throne, and deep in your bosom, you have a phone (Holy Spirit), whenever, you walk you are not walking alone remember God is still on the Throne....(He's reigning now above on His Throne of Love, What a Mighty God we serve, A God to save from sin's control, gave His Son a sacrifice, His Grace abounding in the soul, makes the earth a paradise.) God's Spirit is in you to comfort you, which is the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Truth. Don't worship yourselves, for without the Head you can do nothing, you are the Body of Christ and members in particular, make your calling and election sure. Look Up! For your redemption is drawing nigh.

It Was A New Hour and A New Day!

[The Resurrection] Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb...

And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb.

Now when he rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons.

[The Resurrection] But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.

[The Resurrection] Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.

[Jesus Appears to the Disciples] On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”

Matt. 28:1;Mark 16:2;Mark 16:9;Luke 24:1, John 20:1, John 20:19

It was a new hour, it was a new, new day, it was a new visitation in a new, new way, Revealing the Father and exalting the Son, Changing God's people and making them one.

"Your Faith"

Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is your faith: be it unto you even as you wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; your faith have made you whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O you of little faith, wherefore did you doubt?

And the Lord said, If you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you might say unto this sycamine tree, Be you plucked up by the root, and be you planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan have desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:But I have prayed for you, that your faith fail not: and when you art converted, strengthen your brethren.

Matt. 9:29;Matt. 15:28;Matt. 9:22;Matt. 14:31;Luke 17:6;Luke 22:32

For without faith, it is impossible to please God:
For he or she that comes to God,
Must believe that God is,
And believe that God is a Rewarder,
To them who diligently seek Him.

And how can they believe in Him when they have not heard of Him,
And how can they hear about Him except someone preach about Him?
And how can they preach about Him except they be sent by Him?
And how can they come to him, except He draw them?..Amen.

Your Identity Is To Trust God

Now this I say, that every one of you says, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.  For you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

See that you refuse not Him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaking from heaven:Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.  And this word, Yet once more, signifying the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:For our God is a consuming fire.

You wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you.

1 Cor. 1:9&12;Col 3:3;Heb. 12:25-29;Isa 26:3

You Are Complete in Him, Learn Of Jesus

And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loves another have fulfilled the law.

For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; You shalt love your neighbor as yourself.

After this, JESUS KNOWING THAT ALL THINGS WERE NOW ACCOMPLISHED, THAT THE SCRIPTURE MIGHT BE FULFILLED, saith, I thirst.  Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, "IT IS FINISHED": and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Luke 24:44;Rom. 8:4;Rom. 13:8;Gal. 5:14;John 19:28-30;John 3:16

Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest, take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart and you shall find rest unto your souls, for my yoke is easy and my burden in light...Amen.  Martha was troubled about much serving and she asked the Lord to tell her sister to help her, but the Lord said, Martha, Martha, you are troubled about many things, but one thing is needful, (which Mary was listening to his word sitting at the Lord's feet and learning of him), which Mary has chosen that GOOD PART, that SHALL NOT BE TAKEN AWAY FROM HER..Amen.

Grow in Grace, in the knowledge of the Lord...

Laying Down Your Life, and Taking It Again

With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.

I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

He that believes on the Son have everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him.

I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep.

Therefore do my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

Psa. 91:16;John 17:15;John 3:16;John 3:36;John 10:10-11;John 10:17-18;John 1:4&12,13;John 13:34;1 John 3:16

No one can make you lay down your life, this is voluntarily, of your own free will, don't say I was forced to do anything for anyone, but that you love fervently and cheerfully, not to receive anything, from anybody, but from a pure motive.  But the commandment also is to take your life back, again...Amen.  Because God loves you too...Amen.

Your Father Sees You!

Take heed that you do not your alms (good deeds) before men, to be seen of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

Therefore when you do your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues (church buildings) and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

But when you do alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand do:

That your alms may be in secret: and your Father which sees in secret himself shall reward you openly.

And when you pray, you shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues (church buildings) and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father which sees in secret shall reward you openly.

But when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Be not you therefore like unto them: for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him.

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teaches, on teaching; Or he that exhorts, on exhortation: he that gives, let him do it with simplicity; he that rules, with diligence; he that shows mercy, with cheerfulness.

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you meet withal it shall be measured to you again.

Matt. 6:1-8;Rom. 12:6-8;Luke 6:38

Alms are your works, good deeds, and your ministry to others, even prayer and worship.

Get That Prayer Answered!!

Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that you come together not for the better, but for the worse.

Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in heaven.

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

1 Cor. 11:17;Matt. 18:19;Matt. 18-20

When we come together in one place it is not for when things are going good.  Because we are instructed to come together when things are going wrong, this is acceptable to God.  So let us agree and come together, when a brother and/or sister in Christ is going through something; we will pray and agree, like that time that Peter was taken to prison, and the saints agreed and cried out to God in one place, that very night, the Lord sent his angel and delivered Peter from the prison.  The saints being in prayer didn't realize that God heard them, and Peter was outside the place, knocking at the door. They didn't realize the power in agreeing together....Let us come together for the worse, humbling ourselves asking for agreement from other children of God, not gossipers, but worshipers of the Living God, the Lord Jesus Christ...the Power of Agreement, Amen.

According to His Riches in Glory

For thus saith the Lord, You have sold yourselves for nothing; and you shall be redeemed without money.

Ho, every one that thirsteth, come you to the waters, and he that have no money; come you, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves.

And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Isa 52:3;Isa 55:1;Matt. 21:12-14;Phil 4:19
