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

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!

pious

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

Dear God, please I need the help of the Holy Spirit to be a good Christian that faithfully represents you on earth. 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

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.

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.

GOD SCOLDED ISRAELITES FOR THEIR PRANK – Hosea

Believers Must Positively Receive God’s Correction

(Passage: Hosea 13)

God rebuked the Israelites for attempting to play a double-standard game with him. Israelites were dishonest in their relationship with God. They only served him for their selfish interest. They returned to idol worship after God has blessed them. Meanwhile, God requires his children to faithfully serve him with an undivided attention. People ought to serve God for who he is, and not for the sake of what they intend to receive from him.

Israelites engaged in a face-worship to receive God’s benefits; they turn their back at him after his has blessed them. Therefore, God promised to punish the people for their hypocritical behaviors. God stated,

“When Ephraim spoke, trembling, He exalted himself in Israel; but when he offended through Baal worship, he died. Now they sin more and more, and have made for themselves molded images, Idols of their silver, according to their skill; all of it is the work of craftsmen. They say of them, “Let the men who sacrifice kiss the calves!” Therefore they shall be like the morning cloud and like the early dew that passes away, like chaff blown off from a threshing floor and like smoke from a chimney. “Yet I am the Lord your God Ever since the land of Egypt, and you shall know no God but Me; for there is no savior besides Me. I knew you in the wilderness, in the land of great drought. When they had pasture, they were filled; They were filled and their heart was exalted; Therefore they forgot Me. “So I will be to them like a lion; Like a leopard by the road I will lurk; I will meet them like a bear deprived of her cubs; I will tear open their rib cage, And there I will devour them like a lion. The wild beast shall tear them” (Hosea 13:1-8).

No Game Playing With God!

A good Christian ought to respond to a godly correction.

A Christian who expects God to go a long way for him must also go a long way for God. Christians must understand that we have an obligation to live in honesty before God. No Christian is allowed to play pranks with God. It will backfire!

 

Yield to correction: Believers must understand that we cannot deceive God. He knows a person that is honest in his or her relationship with him. Christians must understand that God will reward us if are honest with him.

Christians must not attempt to test God by serving him with the goal of receiving his benefits only. We must faithfully serve God because he deserves it. We must also obey the commandments of God so that he can count us worthy of his kingdom.

Every Christian must faithfully serve God with a sincere heart at all times.

Respond to correction. It is important to emphasize that a Christian should not be an ingrate by keeping a casual relationship God. Jehovah asks his children to shun sin and pursue righteousness. He asks us to walk uprightly before him so that we can enjoy his earthly and heavenly benefits.

Correction leads to blessings.

Let the weak say, “I am strong.” Whoever struggles in his relationship with God should be honest with his or her status and ask God for help. God will grant the request of his children who acknowledge their weaknesses and prayerfully work towards improvement.

Prayer to Yield to Correction an be Consistent With God

Dear God, I stand to be corrected! Please give me the grace to keep an honest relationship with you. Help me to serve you in righteousness so that you can be happy with me. Empower me by the Holy Spirit to respond to your corrections and change. Please, give me the ability to have an unconditional love for you and faithfully serve you in every day of my life. Let my life glorify you on earth so that you can be proud of me in heaven. Please ever keep me worthy of your eternal kingdom O Lord. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests.

GOD TAUGHT JONAH THE LESSON OF OBEDIENCE – Jonah

obedience

Christians To Obey God For Their Benefits

(Passage: Jonah 2)

Prophet Jonah disobeyed God and attempted to escape, but God caught him red-handedly. God caught Jonah in a ship and commanded a fish to swallow him. The stubborn servant felt the heat of hell until he repented. Jonah repented while in the belly of a fish; God heard his voice and saved him.

The scripture reported,

“Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the fish’s belly. And he said: “I cried out to the Lord because of my affliction, and He answered me. “Out of the belly of Sheol I cried, and you heard my voice. For you cast me into the deep, into the heart of the seas, and the floods surrounded me; All Your billows and your waves passed over me” (Jonah 2:1-3 NKJV).

obey

It Is Better To Obey God Than To Disobey Him

A person should aspire to obey God and receive his blessing than to disobey him and suffer terrible consequences. God who dearly loves his children also has a special mode of correction for his children. Jehovah can allow his children to suffer for the sake of saving them. However, anyone who willingly obeys God has an advantage of receiving greater benefits than a person who was coerced into obedience. God rates his favorite children by their obedience. He will establish his abiding presence with his favorite children. He will rescue them during trouble and provide for their needs. Jehovah will satisfy the needs of his faithful children from this earth to heaven.

GOD GUARANTEED ABSOLUTE SECURITY FOR ISRAELITES – Zechariah

security

God will protect people that serve him

(Passage: Zechariah 12)

 

Security is of the Lord! Dwellers of Jerusalem have lived in fear and suffered oppression from their surrounding nations, but God promised them guaranteed safety. The City of Jerusalem would prosper and flourish despite hostility suffered from their enemies.

God said,

“In that day I will make the clans of Judah like a little fire that sets the forest aflame—like a burning match among the sheaves; they will burn up all the neighboring nations right and left, while Jerusalem stands unmoved” (Zechariah 12:6 TLB).

God’s Guaranteed Security Will Be For His Observers

The security of God stands sure for people that serve him. Jehovah will protect his own people, and offer them many benefits. External influences and pressures that children of God may suffer on earth would not be strong enough to stop God from performing his goodness in their lives. Since nothing can stop God, he will advance his goodness in his people’s lives; he will not stop until he has made his children’s faces shine.

God’s children will have upper hands over their enemies; they have unquenchable Spirit of God dwelling in them, therefore they are bound to succeed. Congratulations to people who have made their choices to serve Jehovah and also follow the footsteps of his Son Jesus Christ – They will prosper in this life, and they will also prosper in heaven. People who have not registered a relationship with God should do so by confessing Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal Savior.

Prayer To Trust God For His Security

Dear God, I understand that you are the only one who has guaranteed security. You have enough strength to save and bless people. Therefore, I swear my allegiance to follow you. I yield my life to you, and I will faithfully serve you throughout the days of my life. Please anoint my head with your oil of gladness, and make my face shine. Overflow me with your grace, and empower me through your Holy Spirit to live a life acceptable to you always. Please defend my interest in this life, and let me remain qualify for your eternal riches in heaven. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen. => Subscribe here.

GOD PLACED HOLINESS CONDITION ON ISRAELITES – Hosea

Christians Must Prioritize Holiness

(Passage: Hosea 10)

God prioritize holiness! God reminded Israelites that he would punish them for their unrepentant sins. Israelites will be punished if they persist in sin, but they will be blessed if they repent of their sins. The Creator promised to avert evil that ought to come on his children if they can repent of their evil ways.

God said, “Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap loyal love. Break up for yourself fallow ground; it is time to seek Yahweh so he will come and rain righteousness upon you.” (Hosea 10:12).

Obey God To Receive His Blessing

Holiness has no substitute with God! There are God’s punishments to apply for human sins. God’s positive rewards will pursue people who pursue peace and serve him in righteousness.

Those who satisfy the holiness standard of God will receive his immeasurable blessing of peace and prosperity in this life and in heaven also.
