OUR FAITH IS AS PRECIOUS AS GOLD IN THE SIGHT OF GOD – 1 Peter

persecution

Christians Should Be Ready To Face Trials and Tribulations In Their Quest for Eternal Life

Children of God are encouraged to endure their trials and temptations for the sake of receiving an eternal reward in heaven. Believers must stay close to God with unwavering faith to receive an incorruptible crown of glory on the last day. It is written,

“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:6-7).

Endurance Is A Key to God’s Abundant Grace And Favor

Every child of God ought to endure whatever challenges of faith that he or she may face, as the effort would be rewarded in heaven. God will crown Christians who endure persecutions and trials of faith in the last days. Christ has warned believers to not assume that Christianity would be easy. Christianity would not always come with the  “bread-and-butter” experience. The religion comes with its own challenges; non-believers will attack Christians and persecute them for their faith. Some Christians would be persecuted to death! However, any Christian who endures faith to the end will be rewarded.

It is important that every Christian stand firm in faith and endure persecution to receive God’s priceless eternal reward in heaven.

Pray For Strength To Endure All Manners of Tribulations As A Christian.

Dear God, please keep me in faith, and let me remain consistent with your holiness standard. Help me to endure persecution. Empower me through the Holy Spirit to stand firm against the trials and temptations so that I can make it to your kingdom. Let me qualify to hear your voice “well-done and welcome my good servant.” For in the name of Jesus Christ I have prayed. Amen.

CHRISTIANS TO PREACH GOSPEL ALWAYS – 2 Timothy

evangelization

Believers In Christ Must Prioritize Gospel Evangelization

The scripture requires Christians to always preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to other people so that they can have an opportunity to be saved. Christians have the mandate to spread the gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ. We must share his message to as many people as possible without holding back.

Christians must prioritize gospel evangelization like Christ himself did. The Son of God received the mandate from God to save the lost souls, and he sacrificed everything he had to fulfill the mission.

Jesus Christ endured and overcame all the challenges that crossed his path for the sake of accomplishing the goal of establishing a salvation pathway for humankind. Christ came to the earth to preach the gospel; he suffered and died for the course. He declared, “Mission accomplished” on the cross. Believers must also follow suit and prioritize gospel evangelization as God required.

Christians have the obligation to extend the gospel light to all people around us, and beyond. Paul challenged Timothy (as well as other Christians throughout the world) to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Paul said,

“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (2 Timothy 4:1-4 KJV).

Gospel Evangelization Is A-Must For Every Christian

Christians have the obligation to prioritize gospel evangelization since we have been commissioned to do so by the scripture. We are commanded to spread the gospel, and we must do so!

No Christian should consider it optional to evangelize the gospel. We are all mandated to do so!

Christians must not hoard the message of the Cross; we must preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone around us!

  • Christians must preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to people of every tongue, nation, and tribe. We must preach without giving any preference to people’s religion, race or culture.
  • Christians must preach the gospel without reservation!
  • Believers must not only preach the gospel when it is convenient. We must also do so when we feel it is not convenient.
  • Christians must not preach the gospel to satisfy human feelings. Irrespective of our mood, we must preach the gospel at all times.

It is important to emphasize that a Christian does not need any religion title to qualify for the task of evangelizing the gospel.

Who Is Qualified To Preach The Gospel?

  • Every Christian is qualified to preach the gospel.
  • A believer must preach whether he or she is a church member, a pastor, a teacher, a deacon, an evangelist, a bishop, a pope, or any other title.
  • It is not mandatory that a Christian must have a particular church umbrella to preach the gospel. The motive of gospel evangelism must be to populate the kingdom of God.
  • No special tool is needed for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. A person only needs to share his or her bible-based knowledge to other people.
  • The gospel message must centralize on encouraging a sinner to repent of his or her sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord. Whosoever takes a step of faith by confessing Jesus Christ as his or her personal Lord and Savior shall be saved.

The scripture declares,

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom. 10:9-10 NKJV).

Be A True Christ’s Ambassador And Preach The Gospel!

Christians must bear plenty profits for the kingdom of God. To achieve this, we must make a significant effort to step out of our comfort zones. We must preach at a time convenient and at a time not convenient. In short, we must preach the gospel at all times!

Every child of God must prioritize gospel evangelization above his or her personal interests.

God will reward a believer that diligently preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to other people. The bearer of Christ’s good news will receive an imperishable crown of glory in God’s kingdom.

A Christian who hoards the gospel will not be highly esteemed by God! Those who avoid the responsibility of sharing their gospel faith with others and those who sabotage gospel evangelization efforts will meet some unfavorable surprises on the Lord’s day of judgment.

Pray For God’s Enablement To Preach The Gospel

Dear God, please empower me to faithfully preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all people. Please energize me by the Holy Spirit to proclaim your good news to people of different tongues and tribes. Help me to preach the gospel when convenient and when not convenient. Give me the grace to proclaim your good news on the mountain and in the valley.

Empower me to use my resources to promote your kingdom from coast to coast so that people from all walks of life can come to the light of Jesus’ salvation.

Please help me to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to my neighbors, my friends, and my family so that they can be saved! Help me to maximize every opportunity I have to lead a multitude of people to your kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord I have prayed. Amen.=> Subscribe here for the latest post

THE INFALLIBLE CHARACTERISTICS OF JESUS CHRIST – Hebrews

power

Jesus Christ Possesses An Indescribable Power For Signs and Wonders

Jesus Christ is an extraordinary being that possesses the unusual power to make an impossible situation becomes possible. The Bible revealed the Lordship identity of Jesus Christ describing him with revelations that are beyond a human comprehension. The Bible emphasized that Jesus Christ is a God-man (The God in human form) that will rule the whole world with a scepter of righteousness. It is written,

“But about the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.” He also says, “In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same, and your years will never end” (Hebrews 1:8-12 NIV).

As the Book of Hebrews referenced (above) described, God has honored Jesus Christ with a rare privilege to reign above every other being that either exist on earth or in heaven.

God specially anointed Jesus Christ to lead a kingdom that will last eternally. Believers in Jesus Christ will reign with him. We shall reign with him in his kingdom!

miracle

Jesus Christ Awards Victory For His Followers

Some benefits that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, will award his followers include the followings:

  1. An opportunity to reign with him in his eternal kingdom.
  2. An opportunity to be considered as royal people on earth to be co-sharers of all God’s benefits.
  3. An opportunity to exercise dominion in all situations (including both on natural and spiritual matters).

Jesus Christ is more or less the foundation of faith and the rooftop of salvation. He declared himself in the Bible as the “Alfa and Omega” (The beginning and the ending). (Revelation 1:8)

Jesus Christ initiated a process of salvation for all people to enjoy a permanent relationship with God.

Jesus Christ is more or less the foundation of faith and the rooftop of salvation. He has the power to rule eternally! The Bible declares him as the “Alfa and Omega.”

Christ is the perfection of God’s love. He simplified the laws of God for all people to understand and comply with.

Jesus (The Son of God) sacrificed his life to save humanity, leaving a blank check for anyone interested to benefit from. Whosoever declares Jesus Christ as the Son of God and accept him as his or her personal Lord and Savior will be saved.

People of different status now have an opportunity to become children of God by simply confessing Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Whosoever takes this important step will be called a child of God and his or her name shall be written in God’s book of life.

Jesus Christ has infallible power to do all things!

Jesus sacrificed his life on the cross to save humanity. His effort leaves us a blank check to claim some immeasurable benefits from God. Christ’s completed salvation process provides humanity a pathway to permanently inherit the kingdom of God.

An Actionable Prayer of Faith

Dear Jesus Christ, I understand that you are the Son of God that was sent to save the sinners like me. You laid down your life for any sinner to confess his/her sin, repent, and declare you as Lord. I understand the importance of what you have done for me; therefore, I declare you as my personal Lord and Savior! I also confess my sins and repent from them. I promise to live the rest of my life serving you. Please give me the grace to keep my promises unto the end. Help me to faithfully serve you unto the end of my life! so that I can be a partaker of your eternal kingdom. Thank you, Jesus Christ, for saving my soul! Amen.

CHRISTIANS TO LIVE EXEMPLARY LIVES – Philippians

good example

Christian Must Be Moral and Portray a Good Example

Passage: Philippians 4

Christians are required to be honest in their relationship with God; they must be godly role models that are suitable for other people to emulate. Christians must understand that unbelievers are watching our behaviors to derive motivation for serving God. Believers must not fail our due diligence of positively influencing the unbelievers and leading them to become God’s worshipers. The scripture emphasized,

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things” (Philippians 4:8).

exemplary

Believers to Serve God with Pure Motives

Christians must serve God with a pure motive and portray a godly example for other people to emulate. Christians’ services must satisfy God. Our practices must motivate other people to love and serve God as well. Christians must understand that we have an obligation to live the exemplary lifestyle for other people to emulate (especially the unbelievers).

Despite the need to meet the pious obligation of faithfully serving God and leading others with godly examples, Christians still face the reality of being powerless without the help of the Holy Spirit. Believers will not have enough strength to adequately meet the mandate to be a true ambassador of Jesus Christ. Christians, like other humans, have weak nature that cannot easily comply with the standard of God. We must rely on the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to adequately serve God and positively influence others.

To have the ability to faithfully serve God and offer godly leadership for other people, Christians must daily pray to receive the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God will also offer us divine guidance to make an appropriate decision and honor God. The Holy Spirit will indeed properly guide and aid us in meeting the standard of God which include an ability to faithfully serve him on earth and befit his kingdom.

Christians should consider it an important matter to pray for the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to meet God’s requirements and appropriately serve him.

Ask God to make you a good example for other people to emulate. May you ever remain a true ambassador of Jesus Christ!

Prayer for God’s Grace to be a Good Example for Others

Let your divine Holy Spirit guide me to live in compliance with the Bible standard so that I can prosper! Please let me be a good example for other people to emulate. Also, let my services bring glory unto your name and ever keep me worthy of your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen. => Subscribe here

SATAN WILL IMPOSE ANTICHRIST SIGN OF 666 – Revelation

antichrist

Christians Must Be Vigilant of Antichrist Signs

Satan will impose his evil sign of antichrist on earth inhabitants on the last day. Most people will receive the sign but some will escape it. People who understand the meaning of the antichrist sign will refuse to accept it, thereby have the opportunity to save their souls from the pit of hellfire. The bible stated the number that will symbolize the antichrist destructive exploit as number Six hundred and Sixty Six (or simply noted as 666).

Anyone who refuses to receive the sign of the antichrist 666 will have the name of God to praise in the end since he or she will have the opportunity to gain an access to the kingdom of God. Those who steer clear of the antichrist symbol would be regarded as the martyrs since they may have endured pain and possibly shed their blood as they refute Satanic agents who plant the signs.

The scripture described people who escape the antichrist sign of 666 as champions. The Bible states,

“Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete. And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: “Great and marvelous are your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the saints! Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before you, for your judgments have been manifested” (Revelation 15:1-4).

kingdom

People Who Refuse Antichrist Sign Will Make Heaven

Persecution of saints will rise during the period of the end time. Satan and his forces will manipulate people to receive his evil mark of the 666 to signify their qualification for eternal damnation of hell. People who have proper knowledge of the bible and are also sensitive to the evil sign would have an opportunity to reject it. Whoever receives 666 – The mark of the antichrist will miss an opportunity to qualify for the kingdom of God. It is therefore important that Christians be vigilant to safeguard their souls. Each believer must read his or her Bible to understand the significance of the antichrist mark. Christians must also be vigilant and be prayerful to remain fit for God’s kingdom.

Believers in Christ ought not to be afraid of the evil sign of Satan intending to qualify people for hellfire. Since Christians have confessed their faith in Jesus Christ, they have an upper hand over Satan! Christians will experience rapture and be transported to heaven prior to the period that Satan will have an opportunity to enforce everyone to receive his mark of destruction.

Jesus Christ will provide a formidable way of escape for his followers prior to the period of tribulation that Satan will force people to receive his sign. All people ought to align their faith with Jesus Christ since he is the sure way of escape from the forthcoming terrible situation that people will experience. Everyone ought to seriously consider Christ’s salvation and earn the opportunity to qualify for heaven. (Unfortunately, whoever refuses to declare Jesus Christ as his or her Lord and Savior will not qualify for the rapture. The person will miss a pleasant opportunity of inheriting the kingdom of God.)

The sure way to receive the salvation of Jesus Christ is as stated in Romans 10:9-10, “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Prayer to Escape Sign 666

Dear God, please save me from the evil sign of the antichrist that Satan will impose on people to waste their souls in hellfire! Please count me worthy of your eternal kingdom. I clearly understand that Jesus Christ provides a sure way of salvation for everyone; whoever confess him as Lord will be saved. Therefore, I confess Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. I give my complete life to Jesus Christ and I promise to keep serving him for the rest of my life. Please keep me fit for your eternal kingdom! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests.

CYRUS SPONSORED THE RECONSTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM – Ezra

God’s Miracles will be Available for Believers

Passage: Ezra 1

One gentile king was inspired to sponsor the reconstruction of God’s Temple in Jerusalem. The king who had an idolatry background allowed God to inspire and use him for the good course. The king’s name is Cyrus, and he ruled the Persia Empire. King Cyrus encouraged the Jews to return to their homeland and rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. However, not only did King Cyrus mobilized and sent them to their ancient City of Jerusalem, he also asked the people of his empire to support the Jews. He instructed his people to provide both material and financial support for the Jewish project. The scripture reported,

“Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The Lord God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel, (he is the God) which is in Jerusalem. And whosoever remaineth in any place where he sojourneth, let the men of his place help him with silver, and with gold, and with goods, and with beasts, beside the freewill offering for the house of God that is in Jerusalem” (Ezra 1:1-4).

God’s Power will Favor Christians

God has the divine ability to rally support for his children. No one is out of the radar of God’s usage for his good courses! In fact, God can even use an enemy to benefit his children! Jehovah has the autonomous power to use both kings and servants alike for the sake of glorifying his name in the lives of his children. Based on the significant fact that God is able to do all things to assist his children, Christians must exercise their trust in him!

Christians are the children of God. We are the people of his apple eyes. That is, Jehovah will take care of us even when a situation arises to tempt us into doubting him. Christians must not doubt God; we must trust in him at all times. Believers must be confident that God is exceedingly and abundantly able to do all things for our benefits. Of course, the call to trust God does not mean that a Christian should fold his hands in idleness! Every child of God still has an obligation to actively engage his or her task as he or she expects God’s miracle! People who actively trust in God will receive his help. The Creator will manifest his power to assist his diligent children now, and always!

God’s help will be sufficient for his faithful children.

Do you trust that God can help you in your situation? Don’t doubt him. Trust in him, and you will not be disappointed!

Prayer for God’s Help

God of miracle is still alive to answer every prayer.

Dear God, I have learned from the Bible that you are strongly able to do all things to benefit your children. Please give me the ability to trust you in my situations. Help me to patiently wait for your assistance. Also, help me to be diligent in my engagement as I exercise my trust in you. Please raise helper for me from every corner of the earth! Send my helpers from the north, south, east, and west! Please enrich me with your benefits so that I can testify to your goodness throughout the world!

GOD REVEALED THE SECRETS OF END TIME – Daniel

end time

The Present Earth And Heaven Will Go Into Extinction

(Passage: Daniel 12)

God revealed the secret of end time to Daniel.  Daniel learned from the revelation that God will soon judge the dwellers of this present earth and haul the planet to a place called Hellfire. God will send the wicked people on earth to hell (an everlasting place of punishment). Meanwhile, Jehovah will reward the people who have lived godly on earth.

People who have lived in obedience to the commandments of God on earth will receive the gift of everlasting life in heaven.

Daniel explained his God-given revelation of end time,

“At that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; and there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, every one who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever” (Daniel 12:1-3).

heaven

Factual Lessons of End Time

End Time – An irreversible season!

God will judge the dwellers of this present earth at his own appointed time. He will send the ungodly people to hellfire but send the godly people to heaven.

The Almighty God will destroy the planet earth at his own appointed time. He will exonerate his faithful children during judgment and send them to heaven. (The escape process of God’s saints is called rapture.)

Unfortunately, people who have failed to faithfully serve God and those who have refused to confess their faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God will be regarded as wicked people and be judged alongside the planet earth.

According to the book of Daniel and book of Revelation, God will create a new earth (and a new heaven) that will host his saints. God’s people – Those who have served God well on earth and have confessed Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior – will qualify for the new plant.

Jehovah will allow the dwellers of his new planet earth to have access to an unlimited peace, joy, and prosperity. God’s saints will enjoy his maximum benefits eternally!

The Call For Repentance

God does not lie; his words will come to pass as scheduled. It is therefore important that all people prepare for the inevitable judgment of God to come on the planet earth. People who are willing to escape God’s punishment of hellfire should not hesitate to repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.

 

A word is enough for the wise! Whoever intends to go to heaven must not hesitate to repent of his or her sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord. God’s indescribable benefits will immediately become available for the person in heaven.

prayer of grace

Pray for Grace to Escape Hell and Befit Heaven

Dear God, please count me worthy of your eternal kingdom. I understand that you will soon judge this world and send the unrepentant sinners to hellfire. I don’t want to go to hellfire; therefore, I confess my sins and repent of them. I also confess my faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins and resurrected from the grave to grant me the gift of eternal life. I declare that I will start to faithfully serve God from today, and I will do this for the rest of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

CHURCH LEADERS MUST HAVE INTEGRITY – Titus

integrity

Christians Must Have Integrity To Honor God

(Passage: Titus 1)

Church leaders are expected to be people of integrity who lead others by example. Paul in his letter to Titus (and as the same principle applied to other Christian leaders) explained the qualities that every Christian leader must have. Paul wrote,

An elder must be blameless, faithful to his wife, a man whose children believe and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient. Since an overseer manages God’s household, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain.8 Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. 9 He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it” (Titus 1:6-9 NIV).

Christians Have Obligation to Lead by Examples

Christians leaders have the obligation to be moral and lead people by example. Religious leaders must be people of integrity. They must have the characters that are good enough to emulate other people to faithfully serve God. Since the fact remains that church leaders are appointed to represent God in their services, they must be careful not to act in any fashion that can mislead and/or negatively influence their congregations.

Any activity that a religion leader performs ought to motivate people to love and serve God. Meanwhile, the congregants of the local churches also have the obligation to support their leaders as well. Church members ought to help ease the burden of their spiritual leaders by providing them any needed support they may need, which are inclusive of both the physical and spiritual assistance.

Members of local churches ought to pray for their leaders to properly operate under the guidance of the Holy Spirit so that they can prosper in their services and bring glory to God.

Pray for yourself and pray for your spiritual leaders.

Pray for Church Leaders

Dear God, please make me an agent of positive change in my local assembly. Enable me with the strength to be an active church member and give me the ability to support my leaders. Help me to pray for my church leaders and offer them any support they might need.

I seize this opportunity to pray for my church leaders. Please grant them courage to properly serve you so that they can prosper for your kingdom. Please empower all church leaders throughout the world to operate under the guidance of the Holy Spirit to adequately serve in your honor. Help your servants throughout the world to be faithful in their services. Give them the ability to be effective their leadership activities and prosper for your kingdom.

THE POWER OF GOD IS UNBEATABLE – Nahum

The Power of God will Benefit Christians

(Passage: Nahum 1)

The power of God is extraordinarily great and remains unbeatable. Jehovah is God; he is the only deity that all people must serve. The Creator has an autonomous power to do whatever he likes. The magnitude of God’s power is beyond any human comprehension! God has the power to give life; he also has the power to take it back. God can make rain to fall in the morning, cause the sun to shine in the afternoon, and snow to fall in the evening. In fact, God is so powerful to an extent that nothing is difficult for him to handle! The Creator, in his magnificent power, requires that all people must recognize him, revere him, and serve him. He asked everyone (his creation) to serve him with all their strength and might. Whoever honors the call to faithfully serve God will prosper on earth and in heaven!

The Bible states,

“God is jealous, and the Lord avenges; The Lord avenges and is furious. The Lord will take vengeance on His adversaries, and He reserves wrath for His enemies; The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked. The Lord has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet. He rebukes the sea and makes it dry, and dries up all the rivers. Bashan and Carmel wither, and the flower of Lebanon wilts. The mountains quake before Him, The hills melt, and the earth heaves at His presence, Yes, the world and all who dwell in it. Who can stand before His indignation? And who can endure the fierceness of His anger? His fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by Him. The Lord is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him. But with an overflowing flood He will make an utter end of its place, and darkness will pursue His enemies” (Nahum 1:2-8). 

 

Blessings Shall Follow People That Recognize the Power of God

The Power of God controls the universe; people who recognize and appreciate this fact will prosper. Why? God has the supreme authority to control all things. He has an autonomous power over the earth and heaven. Whatever God says and does are final. No one can question his authority. The Creator has promised to use his magnificent power to favor the people who faithfully serve him. He considers his faithful worshipers as his true children deserving of blessings, and he will bless them.

 

Anyone that recognizes the power of God and honors the Creator will not regret his (or her action). God will use his magnificent power to favor him. Jehovah will go to an extra mile to ensure that his child that makes him proud get blessed.

Follow the course; serve God for Who He Is

People who expect the blessings of God must faithfully serve God. They must prioritize serving him so that the Creator can surprise them with his much benefits.

Serve God to receive his benefits!

Pray for Grace to Recognize The Power of God

Dear God, please give me the enabling grace to honor you and faithfully serve you so that I can prosper. Help me to serve you in the Spirit and in truth (as you required in the Bible – John 4:24). Please bless me as I acknowledge your power and make a sincere effort to satisfy your desires. Let your goodness and mercy follow me in every day of my life. Earn me the privilege to testify to your goodness in the assembly of your people. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen. => Subscribe here.

GALATIAN CHRISTIANS MUST BE STEADFAST WITH GOD – Galatians

Christianity Requires Steadfastness

Passage: Galatians 3

Paul rebuked the Galatians for their inconsistent relationship with God. He challenged them to be steadfast with God since that is the only means of obtaining God’s mercy and inheriting his eternal kingdom. Paul scolded the Galatians for lack of consistency in their relationship with him. God said, “O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified?” (Galatians 3:1).

stable

Christians Must Understand What Salvation By Grace Mean

Aspire to be a steadfast Christian.

Believers must understand that Christianity requires steadfastness. The religion is free but it does not accommodate unfiltered practices. Whoever wants to serve God should do so with full devotion. Christians must not assume their fleshly characters measure up to God’s standard.

Today’s Christians should learn from Paul’s letter to the Galatians who instructed they must not mismatch their faith with fleshly exercise.

Paul emphasized,

“For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:26-29 NKJV).

God loves steadfast Christians.

Pray to be steadfast with God

Dear God, please help me to practice true Christianity. Help me to be a steadfast person! I understand that I am saved by the grace of God; therefore, I must not abuse my freedom obtained through Jesus Christ. Please help me to live every day of my life celebrating the fact that I was saved by your grace! Help me to be consistent with your word so that I can prosper.
