If you profess your faith in Christ Jesus then don’t put your faith in any other person nor thing for blessings. By the Holy Spirit expect your prayers to be heard by God the Father in heaven with Jesus interceding at God’s right hand.
And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. (Ephesians 4:30)
This parable is as true today as it was when Jesus walked the earth. (Luke 14: 16-24)
Jesus replied: “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests. At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.‘ “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.‘ “Another said, ‘I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.’ “Still another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’ “The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.‘ ” ‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.‘ “Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and make them come in, so that my house will be full. I tell you, not one of those men who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.’ ”
Much of the Church is tied down to the cares and riches of this world, making them unready for the Lord’s return. Make no mistake, the Lord is coming back for a bride without Spot or Wrinkle, not for a bride caught up in sin, those people will not make it. [raptureprophecy.com]
Avoid idleness, and fill up all the spaces of thy time with severe and useful employment; for lust easily creeps in at those emptinesses where the soul is unemployed and the body is at ease; for no easy, healthful, idle person was ever chaste if he could be tempted; but of all employments, bodily labor is the most useful, and of the greatest benefit for driving away the Devil. (Jeremy Taylor)
Love the Lord God sincerely,
And look up to his Son Jesus dearly.
Love God because it right and just,
In your Creator Divine put your trust.
Love God in your thoughts, words and deed,
And surrender to him each and every need.
Love God because his name is Holy,
In his honour pray for those poor and lowly.
Love God with all your might,
And trust in him to set things right.
Love God because he is great,
In his name all evil you hate.
Be at peace as you repent,
From sinning as your truly relent.
For the wages of sin is death,
So repent before your last breath.
Don’t be envious of all sorts of sinners,
As at the Final judgement they won’t be winners.
Be joyful inside as your crucify the flesh,
And in the Holy Spirit your soul refresh.
Reconcile yourself to Jesus the Prince of Peace,
And let your faithfulness to God increase.
Don’t live in sin each new morrow,
And by the Gospel escape Eternal Sorrow.
