In life there’s only one thing… You must die otherwise you will die.
It doesn’t matter what you try to do, just as sure as the morning is so is death.Don’t try to dodge it, just be ready when It comes around. Because death is inevitable, so must you plan for it.
However there is nothing as more obedient than death… It only comes when the Master bids it thus.
But I too, like Paul, thank God through Jesus Christ my Lord, who for the love of His elects, took our place on death row, He dying died my death for me. That I may live, [maybe not presently, Paul told the Hebrews, and us, altogether, 9:27, as it’s appointed unto man once to die], but that I shall rise again and be at my Lord’s side in the Kingdom.
We shall say Oh death where is thy sting, Oh grave where is thy power. (1 Corinthians 15:55-56)
Jesus, we just wanna thank you.
This is only applicable to a child of God who has surrendered unto Jesus, has received the earnest of the Spirit, and is not an enemy of God,
(Paul was so clear on that subject, Romans 8: staring at verse
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But 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.
10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:)
So then Christ is nothing to Him that is not saved baptized in water and the Holy Ghost.
John the Apostle wrote letters to his saints telling them to yearn for the Spirit that maketh us God’s, 1 John 4:13
I am so thankful for the Lord. He will raise us up if we dwell in Him and He in us.
Strive to enter in at the strait gate….
“Luke 13: 24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate:….”
“Matthew 7:13 KJVLite Enter 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 thereat:…. 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
To gain life get off the broad way… I don’t mean that two way traffic highway, but narrow your flesh’s demands, love the Lord, find the teaching Ministry, overcome the flesh the devil and the world.
Luke 25:35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
This scripture is so broad that to start on it, space precludes all the details however, The Lord (Jesus Christ) seeks to marry a wife, just like Isaac got a wife a Virgin, she was never married she was a chaste Virgin. And that is the kind of people that the Lord seeks for His bride like Solomon was Spirit led in his song, Song 6:8-9, the undefiled is but one… There maybe many other concubines in religion, all those religious groups you can name… But the Lord’s bride is but one – undefiled, there may be many virgins without number, but the Lord’s is but one – undefiled
Isaiah also talked about such women as are defiled that would take hold of one man for a husband but still lived their separate lives, stayed at their place but just called the wives of so and so… Isaiah 4:1 but in verse 8, the Lord sounds a warning to those that don’t want to live separate from the world, that don’t want to come out of her Revelation 18:4
The word woman, in the Bible is significant of a Church, just as a natural mother would care for her young, the church cares for her children until she finally becomes a bride for the Lord, when He comes back at that day… So, Christ was admonishing people to find a church where the children are not adulterated… They’re not given in marriage to other religious organizations such as it is at the present, a lot of ecumenism is on the rise. Let us be called by your name but we shall still dress as our religion bids, we shall still preach the way we do but we shall be under your umbrella.
(Luke 20:35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:)
