Life, How to Get it.

Christian Living, How to Survive.

 

Many persons take out expensive health insurance, have a meticulously healthy diet, regular exercise routine, on a whole, they subscribe to a lifestyle that may PROLONG life as they know it. But what

about the REAL life as God Almighty intended for his human subjects, the PARADISE promised by God's Son, Jesus Christ, to one of the two who were punished along side him? [1 Tim. 6:12, 19;

Luke 23:43].

How can we attain this PARADISE, is there a formula? The Holy Writings says at John 3:16:

"For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that,  everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life."

This MEANS everlasting LIFE, their taking in KNOWLEDGE of you,

the only true God,

AND of the one whom you SENT FORTH, Jesus Christ. John 17: 3.

John 4: 23, reads: Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the TRUE WORSHIPPERS will worship the Father with spirit AND TRUTH, for, indeed, the Father is LOOKING FOR suchlike ones to worship him.

In answer he said: "You MUST LOVE Jehovah your God with your WHOLE heart, and with your WHOLE soul and with your WHOLE strength and with your WHOLE mind,' and

'your neighbour as yourself.'" He said to him: "You answered correctly, 'keep on DOING this and you WILL get LIFE.'" 

Luke 10: 27, 28. Compare Deuteronomy 6: 4, 5, 14, 15.

Deuteronomy 6: 4 - 7: Listen, O Israel, Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.

And you must love Jehovah your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your vital force.

And these words that I am commanding you today must prove to be on

your heart; and

you must inculcate them in your son and speak of them

when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road and when

you lie down and when you get up.

 

Verse 24 of John 4 reads: God is a Spirit, and those worshipping him MUST worship with

spirit AND TRUTH.

 

At Psalm 119:160 it reads: The SUBSTANCE of your word IS TRUTH,

And EVERY righteous judicial decision of yours is to TIME INDEFINITE.

 

John 17:17 says: Sanctify them by MEANS of the TRUTH, your word is TRUTH.

In spirit would refer to God's holy spirit or active force. At Galatians 5:16 to 18, we read:

But I say, keep walking by SPIRIT and you will carry out NO FLESHLY DESIRE at all.

 

For the FLESH is AGAINST the SPIRIT in its DESIRE, and the spirit is against the flesh, for these

are OPPOSED to each other, so that the very things that you would like to do you do not do.

 

Furthermore, if you are being LED by spirit, you are NOT UNDER LAW.

 

All WICKEDNESS will be done away with for ALL TIME as shown

at Revelation 21: 8: But as for the cowards and those without faith and

those who are disgusting in their filth and murderers and fornicators and those practicing spiritism and idolators and all the liars, their portion

will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur.

This MEANS the second DEATH.

Psalm 1: 1 - 3: Happy is the man that has NOT walked in the counsel of the wicked ones,

And in the way of sinners has NOT stood,

And in the seat of ridiculers has NOT sat.

But his delight is in the law of Jehovah,

And in his law he READS in an undertone DAY and NIGHT.

And he WILL CERTAINLY become like a tree planted by STREAMS of WATER,

That gives its own FRUIT in ITS SEASON

And the foliage of which DOES NOT WITHER,

And EVERYTHING he does WILL SUCCEED.

Compare with Jeremiah 17: 7 - 8.

Fruitage of spirit

 

At Galatians 5:22, 23 we read: On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONG-SUFFERING, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITH, MILDNESS,

SELF-CONTROL.

Against such things there is NO LAW.

Trust in Jehovah with all your heart and do not

lean upon your own understanding.

In all your ways take notice of him, and he himself will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3: 5, 6.

 

[By putting our FAITH and WORKS in the provision by God {John 3:16} of his perfect Son's life, we NO

LONGER NEED to DIE in order to PAY for the DEBT of Adamic sin. Thus, we NO LONGER live in accordance

to the FLESH, but in accordance to the spirit, since our sacrificial Lamb is a Spirit, is immortal, and pleads on

our behalf as our High Priest Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 6:20, Hebrews 8:1, 2.] 

In this imperfect world, where Satan and his Demons prowl [Revelation 12:9, 12; Revelation 13:4,

8; 1 John 5:9; 1 John 2: 17; 2 Corinthians 4:3, 4.] we NEED to ENSURE that we are NOT LIKE

the world.

SO KEEP STRICT WATCH that HOW you WALK is NOT as UNWISE  [persons], buying out

the OPPORTUNE TIME for yourselves, because the days are WICKED. On this account cease becoming unreasonable, but go on perceiving what the will of Jehovah is. Ephesians 5:15-17.    

Keep testing whether you are in the faith, keep proving what you yourselves are. 2 Corinthians 13:5.

 

PRAYERS DIRECTED ONLY TO God Almighty, THROUGH, Jesus Christ.

 

Jesus the Messiah, has set the pattern of how we should pray.

John 14: 6 says: Jesus said to him: "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the

Father except through me...."

In verse 14 of the same chapter Jesus here says: If you ask anything in my name, I will do it.

John 16: 23- 24 read: And in that day you will ask me no question at all. Most

truly I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything he will give it to you

in my name. Until this present time you have not asked a single thing in my

name. Ask and you will receive, that your joy may be made full.

 

For those of the Gentiles who are CONVERTED to Christianity the following are required:

 

 Acts 21:25.

 As for the believers from among the nations, we have sent out, rendering our decision that they should keep themselves from what is sacrificed to idols as well as from blood and what is strangled and from fornication.

see also Acts 15: 28, 29.

We are ALL familiar with the Scripture at John 3: 16 which says:

For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that EVERYONE EXERCISING faith in him might NOT be DESTROYED but have EVERLASTING LIFE.

Let us EXAMINE this Scripture, CLOSELY.

It says: EVERYONE EXERCISING FAITH in God's ONLY-BEGOTTEN Son, whose LIFE

was GIVEN for the WORLD, MIGHT NOT be DESTROYED but have

EVERLASTING LIFE.

From the above, we can deduce that:

1. The world was condemned [i.e. the people] to be DESTROYED.

2. God GAVE his only-begotten Son to RANSOM obedient ones of mankind.

3. Those who exercise FAITH in this provision have the opportunity to SURVIVE FOREVER.

1 Peter 3: 18 says: Why, even Christ died once for ALL TIME concerning sins, a righteous

[person] for unrighteous ones, that he might LEAD YOU to God, he being put to DEATH

in the FLESH, but being made ALIVE in the SPIRIT.

1 Peter 3: 22 says: He is at God's right hand, for he went his way to heaven; and angels and

authorities and powers were MADE subject to him.

Please READ Acts 3: 12 - 26 ; Acts 7: 51 - 56; Acts 17: 11, 24 - 31; John 17: 3.

1 John 3: 4- 10 read: Everyone who practices sin is also practicing lawlessness, and so sin is

lawlessness. You know too that that one was made manifest to take away [our] sins, and there is no

sin in him. Everyone remaining in union with him does NOT practice sin, NO ONE that practices sin

has either seen him or come to KNOW him.

Little children, let NO ONE MISLEAD YOU, he who carries on righteousness is righteous just

as that one is righteous. He who carries on sin originates with the Devil, because the Devil has

been sinning from the beginning. FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MADE

MANIFEST, NAMELY, TO BREAK UP THE WORKS OF THE Devil.

Everyone who has been born from God DOES NOT CARRY ON sin, because His [reproductive]

seed remains in such one, and he CANNOT PRACTISE SIN, because he has been born

from God. THE CHILDREN OF GOD AND THE CHILDREN OF THE Devil are EVIDENT

BY THIS ONE FACT: EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT CARRY ON RIGHTEOUSNESS DOES NOT ORIGINATE WITH God , NEITHER DOES HE WHO DOES NOT LOVE HIS BROTHER.

All WICKEDNESS will be done away with for ALL TIME as shown

at Revelation 21: 8: But as for the cowards and those without faith and those who are

disgusting in their filth and murderers and fornicators and those practicing spiritism and idolators and all the liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur.

This MEANS the second DEATH.

Ro 1: 28-32 warns; And just as they did not approve of holding God in accurate knowledge, God

gave them up to a disapproved mental state, to do the things not fitting, filled as they were with all unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, badness, being whisperers, backbiters, haters of

God, insolent, haughty, self-assuming, inventors of injurious things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, false to agreements, having no natural affection, merciless. Although these know full

well the righteous decree of God, that those practising such things are deserving of death, they not

only keep on doing them but also consent with those practicing them.
