A world of DECEPTION AND LIES!

A trending headline in the news today: “Male basketballer banned after testing positive for pregnancy”

Really now?

Firstly, a man cannot get pregnant! Obviously, this basketball player has been MASQUERADING AS MAN when in fact THIS PERSON IS A WOMAN!

“[WOE UNTO THEM THAT CALL EVIL GOOD AND GOOD EVIL]; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20).

The prince of this world, the devil aka Satan uses Transgenderism [people whose gender identity or expression does not match the sex they were assigned at birth] as a disguise to deceive the whole world (Revelation 12:9).

A MAN BORN A MAN WILL ALWAYS BE A MAN; AND A WOMAN BORN A WOMAN WILL ALWAYS BE A WOMAN! Absolutely no man can change a man into a woman or vice versa!

“[BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED]: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that [SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION]; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:7-8).

“[THE WICKED SHALL BE TURNED INTO HELL, AND ALL THE NATIONS THAT FORGET GOD]” (Psalm 9:17).

“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence [STEDFAST UNTO THE END]” (Hebrews 3:12-14).

Everyday keep the FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST (Galatians 3:24). Let us remind ourselves of these words of Paul to “FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT,” “KEEP THE FAITH,” AND “FINISH THE COURSE” TO THE END (2 Timothy 4:7).

The CROSS is the gateway to GOD to ETERNAL LIFE in H E A V E N.

“No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” (John 1:18).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have [EVERLASTING LIFE]. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be [SAVED]” (John 3:16-17).

“[LOOK UNTO ME, AND BE YE SAVED], all the ends of the earth: for I [AM GOD, AND THERE IS NONE ELSE]” (Isaiah 45:22).

“For it is written, ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.’ For the [PREACHING OF THE CROSS] is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the [POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 1:18-19).

JESUS. The ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD says: ‘If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me’” (Matthew 16:24). “And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me” (Matthew 10:38).

Now, therefore, as the only way to get the things that are eternal is through Jesus Christ who died for us; for this purpose then we should live unto him and not unto ourselves (2 Corinthians 5:15).

“[FOR YE ARE DEAD, AND YOUR LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD]” (Colossians 3:3).

“The LORD is my [LIGHT] and my [SALVATION]; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1).

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I [WILL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOR EVER]” (Psalm 23:1, 4, 6).

JESUS, the good Shepherd (John 10:10-11) says: “I am the [LIGHT] of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the [LIGHT OF LIFE]” (John 8:12).

“As long as I am in the world, I am the [LIGHT] of the world” (John 9:5).

“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will [RAISE] him up at the [LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).

“Wherefore God saith: ‘Awake thou that sleepest, and [ARISE FROM THE DEAD], and Christ shall give thee [LIGHT]’” (Ephesians 5:14).

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [LAST] trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:44-47).

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and [SO SHALL WE EVER] be with the Lord. “Wherefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–18).

Jesus also says: “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).

“I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

PRAY to GOD in TRUTH and in SPIRIT AND Keep the FAITH OF JESUS.

Let us not marvel over new technological developments and their integration into everyday life; we must not let these things blind our vision to keep focused on word of God and following our Lord Jesus Christ, who holds the key combination to the treasure God hid in the outset of time. “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3).

Today, with the constant barrage of media in everyday life, we need to obtain firsthand the knowledge of the word of God so we do not fall prey to fear, fables, and fairy tales distracting us to be totally obedient to the word of God.

Today, a few words of comfort to those who are unemployed, in financial distress, lonely, weary, frightened about life circumstances or simply disillusioned about life: Let us be reminded what Paul, the apostle said: “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Many throughout time have doubted and said, in essence, “This is easier said than done”. However, Jesus emphasized, “And I say unto you, [ASK, AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU; SEEK, AND YE SHALL FIND; KNOCK, AND IT SHALL BE OPENED UNTO YOU]. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Luke 11:9–10).

Be strong and pray to God in Jesus’ name. Also, be reminded what Jesus also said: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23–24).

The LORD’s PRAYER: Every Morning and Night.

“IT is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the [MORNING], and thy faithfulness every [NIGHT]” (Psalm 92:1-2).

The Holy Scriptures says: Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few” (Ecclesiastes 5:2).

JESUS, the only begotten Son of God says: “When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matthew 6:7-8).

“Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13).

FINAL JUDGMENT: “I NEVER KNEW YOU:”

These words will be among the LAST words heard by untold numbers of people on this earth.

Many people may brush off these words of warning but, we who are now called in the Kingdom of God take heed to these words seriously.

When Jesus returns on the LAST DAY for DAY OF JUDGMENT, he says: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall [ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN]; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21).

“And there shall in no wise [ENTER INTO IT] any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but [THEY WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE]: (Revelation 21:27).

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, [I NEVER KNEW YOU]: [DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY]” (Matthew 7:21-23).

“And these shall go away into [EVERLASTING PUNISHMEN]T: but the [RIGHTEOUS INTO LIFE ETERNAL]” (Matthew 25:46).

The Apostle Paul reminded us, said: “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling that ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the [DAY OF CHRIST]” (Philippians 2:12, 1:10).

“[TAKE HEED, BRETHREN, LEST THERE BE IN ANY OF YOU AN EVIL HEART OF UNBELIEF, IN DEPARTING FROM THE LIVING GOD]. But exhort one another [DAILY], while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For [WE ARE MADE PARTAKERS OF CHRIST], if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast [UNTO THE END]” (Hebrews 3:12-14).

GOD ONLY IS GOD.

Most of people know or have used the word: commonsense, and the sentence: “It’s just commonsense.”

Well then, it is only COMMONSENSE for every human being to WORSHIP ONLY GOD. It’s that simple!

DO NOT WORSHIP Lucifer, the devil, aka Satan and his fallen angels; they are all idols (Matthew 25:41, 46) (Revelation 9:20).

“[IS THERE A GOD BESIDE ME]? ‘Yea, there is no God; I know not any’” (Isaiah 44:7–8).

“I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me” (Isaiah 45:5).

“I AM the LORD thy God. Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:2–3).

“Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict. Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart” (Job 37:23–24).

“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!” (Romans 11:33).

“[THOU ART MY GOD, AND I WILL PRAISE THEE: THOU ART MY GOD, I WILL EXALT THEE]. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever” (Psalm 118:28-29).

Thanksgiving Psalm 118:28 You are my God, and I will give thanks to you.

LIVE FOREVER.

When we go to sleep at night, expecting to awake to another day, so too we are to be joyful today that once Jesus is in our life, when we die (or rather fall into that long sleep), we will awake in Jesus Christ on the Last Day (Daniel 12:2) (Revelation 20:12–15).

“Wherefore he saith: ‘[AWAKE THOU THAT SLEEPEST], and arise from the dead, and [CHRIST SHALL GIVE THEE LIGHT]’” (Ephesians 5:14).

“[BEHOLD, I SHEW YOU A MYSTERY; WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP, BUT WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED]. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [LAST TRUMP]: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” (1 Corinthians 15:44-55).

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).

This is G O D’s Earth!

Therefore, the least every human being must do daily is to give God thanks in the name of his only begotten Son Jesus Christ (John 3:16-18)!

“For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5).

“The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” (Psalms 95:5, 24:1).
“In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider. God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him” (Ecclesiastes 7:14).

Job also asked: “If a man die, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14).

“For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:2–3).

“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:21–22).
Now, as the only way to get the things that are eternal is through Jesus Christ who died for us; for this purpose then we should live unto him and not unto ourselves (2 Corinthians 5:15).

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:20).
Thanksgiving Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks to God the Father for everything.

Worship only GOD in the name of JESUS CHRIST.

“No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” (John 1:18).

To see and be with God and Jesus in the EVERLASTING HABITATIONS in heavens at the end of this world human beings must become QUICKENING SPIRITS (John 5:21–22).

The only begotten Son, JESUS says: “[GOD IS A SPIRIT]: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24).

“[IT IS THE SPIRIT THAT QUICKENETH]; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63).
The Apostle Paul further expressed said: “So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:8).

“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption” (1 Corinthians 15:50).

“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. [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” (Romans 8:12-13).

“[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. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness” (Romans 8:9-10).

“[THE SPIRIT ITSELF BEARETH WITNESS WITH OUR SPIRIT, THAT WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD]: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together” (Romans 8:16-17).

“[BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED: FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP]. For [HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION]; but [HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING]” (Galatians 6:7-8).
