DEEP abiding FAITH

 

JESUS said:

Matthew 24:35

King James Version

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, 

but my words shall not pass away.


Why do I have so much faith in JESUS?

Here are THREE basic reasons:


Reason 1

If you focus on the world, you'll go crazy.

For it has selective information.

The elite choose what to tell you.

The poor are mere fodder for their schemes.


If you focus on JESUS, you'll find comfort.

For He has already overcome the world.

GOD gives both Jew, and Gentile, a fair chance at salvation.

GOD loves us all.


Reason 2

The prince of the power of the air wants to destroy us.

Ephesians 2:2-3

King James Version

2 Wherein in time past ye walked 

according to the course of this world, 

according to the prince of the power of the air, 

the spirit that now worketh 

in the children of disobedience:

3 Among whom also we all had our conversation 

in times past in the lusts of our flesh, 

fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; 

and were by nature the children of wrath, 

even as others.


1 Peter 5:8

King James Version

8 Be sober, 

be vigilant; 

because your adversary the devil, 

as a roaring lion, 

walketh about, 

seeking whom he may devour:


JESUS, the Prince of Peace, came to save the lost.

Mark 10:45

King James Version

45 For even the Son of man came 

not to be ministered unto, 

but to minister, 

and to give his life a ransom for many.


Luke 19:10

King James Version

10 For the Son of man is come 

to seek and to save that which was lost.


1 John 2:2

King James Version

2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: 

and not for ours only, 

but also for the sins of the whole world.


Reason 3

The enemy accuses us before GOD all the time.

Revelation 12:10

King James Version

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, 

Now is come salvation, 

and strength, 

and the kingdom of our God, 

and the power of his Christ: 

for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, 

which accused them before our God day and night.


JESUS intercedes for us all the time.

1 Timothy 2:5-6

King James Version

5 For there is one God, 

and one mediator between God and men, 

the man Christ Jesus;

6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, 

to be testified in due time.


Those are but THREE comparisons.

Which makes decision-making, a no-brainer.

What's stopping you, from believing in JESUS?

What's stopping you, from being born again?

Who caused you to doubt GOD's love?

CALL for help, and the LORD will be there!

Psalm 50:15

King James Version

15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: 

I will deliver thee, 

and thou shalt glorify me.


This verse, I can vouch for:

Isaiah 65:24

King James Version

24 And it shall come to pass, 

that before they call, 

I will answer; 

and while they are yet speaking, 

I will hear.


It's time to fall away from sin, and seek JESUS.

For it's all preparation now.

The time is "at hand".
