As time winds down towards the soon coming END OF YEARS the devil and his fallen angels are working overtime to destroy human beings. This is becoming more apparent from the daily news stories of killings and all sorts of horrible things around this world. By the word of God we must be alert DAILY and NOT give place to the devil because he knows his time is soon going to END!
We must keep our hearts with all diligence in the LOVE of GOD in HOPE and FAITH looking to ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN.
When a young man wanted to know what he must do to inherit eternal life, this ws the communication with Jesus, as it is wrotten:
“And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (Matthew 19:16-19).
Our Lord JESUS reminds us, saying: “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; because strait is the gate, and [NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE], and [FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT]” (Matthew 7:13–14).
“For many are called, but [FEW ARE CHOSEN]” (Matthew 22:14).
The Apostle Paul also reminded us when he said:
“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption” (1 Corinthians 15:40, 50).
“Now the works of the [FLESH] are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God” (Galatians 5:19–21).
“But the fruit of the [SPIRIT] is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith” (Galatians 5:22).
“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).
“[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).
“Now the [GOD OF PEACE], that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen” (Hebrews 13:20-21).
“And the [GOD OF PEACE] shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen” (Romans 16:20).
“And the very [GOD OF PEACE] sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:23).
“Now the [GOD OF PEACE] be with you all. Amen” (Romans 15:33).
