JESUS gives us the STRENGTH we need

 

Philippians 4:13

King James Version

13 I can do all things through Christ 

which strengtheneth me.


The world may look like a dangerous place, but the LORD JESUS had already conquered death, and the devil, who had power over it.

Hebrews 2:14

King James Version

14 Forasmuch then as the children 

are partakers of flesh and blood, 

he also himself likewise took part of the same; 

that through death he might destroy him 

that had the power of death, 

that is, the devil;


And in Jesus, we have everlasting life:

John 4:13-14

King James Version

13 Jesus answered and said unto her, 

Whosoever drinketh of this water 

shall thirst again:

14 But whosoever drinketh 

of the water that I shall give him 

shall never thirst; 

but the water that I shall give him 

shall be in him a well of water 

springing up into everlasting life.


Sure, the world can be extremely confusing, and challenging, but the LORD JESUS had already conquered it.

John 16:33

King James Version

33 These things I have spoken unto you, 

that in me ye might have peace. 

In the world ye shall have tribulation: 

but be of good cheer; 

I have overcome the world.


There is no need to fear those who intimidate us, for Jesus fights for us.

Deuteronomy 20:4

King James Version

4 For the Lord your God is he that goeth with you, 

to fight for you against your enemies, 

to save you.


Jesus always intercedes in our behalf:

Hebrews 7:25

King James Version

25 Wherefore he is able also to save them 

to the uttermost 

that come unto God by him, 

seeing he ever liveth 

to make intercession for them.


We only need to believe in the greatness, and faithfulness, of the FATHER, and SON, for they are ONE.

John 10:28-30

King James Version

28 And I give unto them eternal life; 

and they shall never perish, 

neither shall any man pluck them 

out of my hand.

29 My Father, 

which gave them me, 

is greater than all; 

and no man is able to pluck them 

out of my Father's hand.

30 I and my Father are one.


Thus, we must thank God, for giving us victory through Jesus.

1 Corinthians 15:57

King James Version

57 But thanks be to God, 

which giveth us the victory 

through our Lord Jesus Christ.


Can we now see how precious, and loved, we are?

How strong we can become, through the power of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, if only we would believe in Him.

Despite our sinfulness?

And ingratitude?

Surely, we have no concept of how MUCH the LORD loves us, and fights for us!

Why We MUST Love GOD's TRUTH Alone

 

Matthew 22:37-40

King James Version

37 Jesus said unto him, 

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, 

and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, 

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments 

hang all the law and the prophets.


It's all been prophesied.

What scoffers, and unbelievers, are to expect about the near future.

2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 

King James Version

11 And for this cause 

God shall send them strong delusion

that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned 

who believed not the truth, 

but had pleasure in unrighteousness.


What is GOD's TRUTH?

2 Thessalonians 2:13-15

King James Version

13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, 

brethren beloved of the Lord, 

because God hath from the beginning 

chosen you to salvation 

through sanctification of the Spirit 

and belief of the truth:

14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, 

to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15 Therefore, 

brethren, 

stand fast, 

and hold the traditions 

which ye have been taught, 

whether by word, 

or our epistle.


Why is BELIEVING the TRUTH urgent?

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 

King James Version

2 Now we beseech you, 

brethren, 

by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, 

or be troubled, 

neither by spirit, 

nor by word, 

nor by letter as from us, 

as that the day of Christ is at hand.


What are we to expect in these times?

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 

King James Version

3 Let no man deceive you by any means

for that day shall not come, 

except there come a falling away first

and that man of sin be revealed, 

the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself 

above all that is called God, 

or that is worshipped; 

so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, 

shewing himself that he is God.


2 Thessalonians 2:6-9 

King James Version

6 And now ye know what withholdeth 

that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: 

only he who now letteth will let, 

until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed

whom the Lord shall consume 

with the spirit of his mouth, 

and shall destroy 

with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, 

whose coming is after the working of Satan 

with all power and signs and lying wonders,


The future for those who LOVE GOD and BELIEVE in JESUS:

2 Thessalonians 2:10 

King James Version

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; 

because they received not the love of the truth, 

that they might be saved.


There is not much time to dilly-dally.

Make a stand now.

Are you for, or against GOD?

By your choice, will your future be certain.

It's all been prophesied.
