the testimony of Jesus Christ I John, a brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ for the testimony of Jesus Christ – Revelation 1:9
Beloved, humble lifestyle is what believers  of all ages and you in particular, must reproduce.
The good Lord shall help you especially to access limitless exaltation that is the natural heritage of the redeemed, from your loving Father in heaven in Jesus mighty name.
But then it can only be accessed through biblical humility. So be clothed with humility.
In addition to this nobel virtue, our beloved  Brother John revealed to believers of all ages and you too, a seal to be embraced, which also is the common identity of all  heaven-bound citizens.
None including the only begotten Son of the living God are  excluded from it. See for yourself.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Beloved, Brother John said, he was the companion in tribulation of all believers and that includes you.
The Bible says you should not be surprised whenever you are persecuted or hated for righteousness. See it yourself.

1Pe 4:12 — 14  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

Beloved, apart from biblical humility, there are two outstanding virtues that must be feasibly and readily seen in the lives of all believers, especially you. They are righteousness and godliness.
See what the Bible says shall be the portion of carriers of these two virtues
Righteousness.

Psalms 34:19  Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

Godliness.

2 Timothy 3:12  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

Beloved righteousness opens the pearly gates of heaven for you. It will be so in Jesus name.

Matthew 13:43  Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

But  the same righteousness shall put you in particular to many unavoidable afflictions on this of heaven.
In the same token, godliness is a compulsion for every redeemed person who will culminate their pilgrimage on earth with eternal life with Jesus and be rapture ready.

Tit 2:11 — 13  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ

But then godliness shall expose you to unavoidable confrontations with the ungodly. Either in your family, office or neighborhood.
Now see these scriptures.  Know them and be prepared to experience them till you see Jesus.
1. As a Christian soldier.

2 Timothy 2:3  Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

2.  As a Christian evangelizing to win souls for Christ in your world of influence.

2 Timothy 4:5  But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

3. As a saint  or  believer, who fears God, like Job.

Jam 5:10 — 11  Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

However, all of these challenges are not permanent. They are just for some time. Deliverance shall surely come from Lord in due time. See the sure promises from  your faithful God.

Job 5:19  He shall deliver thee in six troubles:  yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.

Proverbs 24:16  For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

Beloved, see the latter end of Job and be encouraged. Yours Shall even be better in Jesus name.

Job 42:12 —17  So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. He had also seven sons and three daughters. And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch. And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren. After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations. So Job died, being old and full of days.

So embrace this seal of all heaven bound citizens joyfully like  Brother John.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Dearly beloved, our truthful Lord did not keep His followers in Bible and by extension His followers of all ages and that includes you.
What their expectations shall be for following Him faithfully and wholeheartedly. I am persuaded that these are the ways you have been following Him.

John 16:33  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.

 This was why Brother John embraced the tribulation he found himself for following Jesus.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The blessed Holy Spirit gave several scriptures to encourage believers and you to prepare for this unavoidable circumstances..

Acts 14:22  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

Rom 8:16 — 17  The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

1Th 3:3 — 1Th 3:4  That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.

2Co 4:7 — 12  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

Philippians 1:29  For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

Rom 8:35 — 39  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

2Co 4:16 — 18  For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Dearly beloved Jesus Christ our Lord promised His followers and you the aftermath of their travails. See it and be encouraged.

Jn 14:18 — 19  I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

Friend, no doubt you know that the end time is here , going by the global inexplanable troubles. The Bible refers to this time as perilous time.

2Ti 3:1 — 5  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Friend, it then follows if the end time is here, that the rapture is dawning also.
Because perilous time is here, then embrace tribulation like Brother John.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Our Lord Jesus Christ said it would be inevitable when rapture is imminent. See it yourself.

Rev 2:9 —10  I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Friend, if you embrace tribulation like Brother John, then you shall avoid great tribulations that shall  proceed after the rapture. You shall not be part of it I Jesus name. So live by the entirety of God’s unfailing words in the Bible.

Rev 3:10 — 11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Beloved, I pray for you earnestly that you shall profit exceedingly in your walk with your loving Father in heaven in Jesus name. But if you check through the scriptures either in the old or new testaments.
You shall discover those who profited in their walk with God have a gracious virtue that majority of the people professing religion don’t have.
Always remember this. Please never ever forget. God abhors the proud. This was the singular unpardonable sin of Lucifer, the most beautiful arc angel of God.

1 Timothy 3:6  Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

But then God appreciates the lowly and will always promote and bless them. He shall bless you in particular in Jesus name. But then be very lowly.

Psa 138:6  Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly:but the proud he knoweth afar off.

Job 22:29  When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.

Proverbs 15:33  The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.

Proverbs 18:12  Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.

Proverbs 22:4  By humility and the fear of the Lord  are riches, and honour, and life.

Isaiah 57:15  For thus saith the high and lofty One  that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

Isaiah 66:2  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

James 4:6  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

1Pe 5:5 — 6  Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

Beloved, you shall discover that saints and believers in Bible days were very lowly. No matter their standing among their colleagues or spiritual attainments, they were usually very humble.
This was what a prominent apostle of Jesus, apostle John who was introducing himself, referred to  himself as a brother.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

You will discover today’s preachers ascribing divers titles of pride to themselves.  Reverend, doctor etc.
These so called ministers get offended if you ever introduce them without adding their great titles. This informs why they are empty and can not carry God’s anointing received through biblical humility.
Beloved, the good Lord shall bless you abundantly in Jesus name. But always remember, the way up with God is a lifestyle of biblical humility.  Receive grace to humble yourself before Him in Jesus name.

Matthew 23:12  And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

This alone is the most important required virtue God wants to see in your life, before you can have access to ceaseless heavenly blessings which naturally are you heritage.

Micah 6:8  He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

Dearly beloved, Jesus Christ our Lord stood out incomparable with any saint either  in the old or new testaments, living a lifestyle of biblical humility during His earthly ministry. In fact the blessed Holy Spirit, said of Him, that He was humble till He died. See it yourself.

Phi 2:5 — 8  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

See as the scriptures revealed His instances of unusual and incomparable humble lifestyle.
1. He created John the Baptist. But was humble enough to come to Him for baptism.

Mat 3:13 — 15  Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

2. He washed as a servant the feet of His disciples

Jn 13:3 — 5  Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.

3. He lived a lifestyle of biblical humility to show the pattern to His followers of all ages and you are not excluded.

Luk 22:25 — 27  And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.

4.  He was equal to God the Father in all things yet willingly submitted to His painful will.

Luk 22:41 — 42  And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

Dearly beloved, our Lord having showed believers of all ages especially you this exemplary lifestyle of biblical humility, commanded you should do likewise to access exaltation of your loving Father in heaven.
You shall be highly exalted in Jesus name. But then heed this commandment of our Lord.

Luke 14:11  For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Luke 18:14   I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

No marvel apostle John was highly exalted, just like God shall exalt you too, following the example of His Master. He an apostle of Christ, referred to himself as a brother, a pattern you should follow henceforth, till you see Jesus.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

See what the blessed Holy Spirit says you should be doing.

Colossians 3:12  Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

James 4:10  Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

Very very unfortunately, today’s professors of religion and nominal churchgoers, live an opposite lifestyle. The blessed Holy Spirit says they are proud, heady and high-minded.
None of these damnable vices must never ever be once seen or mentioned in your life.

2Ti 3:1 — 5  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

However, on the contrary be like John the Baptist and apostle Paul.  See them yourself and do likewise.
1. John the Baptist. He wanted Christ to increase and he decreased..

John 3:30  He must increase, but I must decrease.

 2. Paul apostle living a crucified lifestyle, desiring only to be a shinning light for Christ.

Galatians 2:20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

 May the Lord help you to do same and be lifted I Jesus name.
Friend, you shall be part of the dawning rapture in Jesus name. Please live a lifestyle of biblical humility like apostle John.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

 Friend, this becomes absolutely necessary for two reasons.
1. Only the poor or lowly, not proud in the spirit shall have access to heaven.

Matthew 5:3  Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 13:43  Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

2. Only the meek and lowly like Christ shall be part of His, one thousand years reign on earth, after the rapture.

Matthew 5:5  Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Mat 11:28 — Mat 11:29  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

2Pe 3:11 — 13  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

 Friend, you shall be part of these two heavenly rewards in Jesus name. So be determined  lowly in your lifestyle. This is because God resist the proud but giveth grace to the lowly like Christ and our beloved brother John.

1Pe 5:5 — 6  Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

present you faultless Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy. – Jude 1:24
Beloved, it is not an exaggeration or an over statement. God is able to do everything He says.
A time came in the life of Moses the servant of God, when the Lord said He would do something and Moses wondered  how God would do it. Then the Lord told him, that He was able to do all things and nothing was  impossible for Him.
Is there anytime in your own  life that God said, He would do something and you  too, wonder how that would be possible?  Never ever forget. He could do all things, even beyond your expectations.
God ultimately fed three million people with meat for a long time beyond the expectations of Moses, as He said.
Sarah experienced incredible intervention that brought laughter into her life  at old age. Mary the mother of Jesus experienced awesome miracle. You are the next person to experience the supernatural acts of God.
It is coming in Jesus name. Expect it.
Moses.

Num 11:18 — 23  And say thou unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow, and ye shall eat flesh: for ye have wept in the ears of the Lord, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt: therefore the Lord will give you flesh, and ye shall eat. Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty days; But even a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised the Lord which is among you, and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt? And Moses said, The people, among whom I am, are six hundred thousand footmen; and thou hast said, I will give them flesh, that they may eat a whole month. Shall the flocks and the herds be slain for them, to suffice them? or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to suffice them? And the Lord said unto Moses, Is the Lord’s hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

Sarah

Gen 18:13 — 14  And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? Is any thing too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

Mary

Luk 1:34 — 37  Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Ephesians 3:20  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Beloved, you need to be persuaded about the capability of God to do all things. Especially at this perilous time.
Many of the believers are wondering, things are getting more difficult. Will they be able to continue with the Lord in righteousness and holiness without compromising their faith?  For such brethren and perhaps you in particular.
God’s response is, I will keep you from falling until the end.

Jude 1:24  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

Beloved, so look up to Him in faith and live your life per day.

Isaiah 45:22  Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

Psalms 34:5  They looked unto him, and were lightened:  and their faces were not ashamed

He kept Enoch, walking with Him, in holiness for more than three hundred years, He will keep you too from falling and your eternity  shall be guaranteed in  Jesus name.

Gen 5:22 — 24  And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Dearly beloved, no doubt as you listen to news globally and consider the trend of events in your own country.
The persistent and unstable state of economy globally. Unfortunately, the people that are mostly affected are the believers who need to survive at this perilous time without compromising their faith.
Many of God’s people are beginning to wonder, whether they  would they be able to continue this Christian journey to the end without putting their hands
in sin? For such believers they need not fret or be fearful. This is because the rod of the wicked shall never ever fall on the righteous.

Psa 125:3  For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous;lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.

Dearly beloved, you have many reasons, why you should never be fretful.
1. Jesus your Lord is the one upholding the entire universe and making it functional since inception. If He could keep the whole universe functioning without malfunctioning. It would not be difficult for Him to keep you in particular from falling as He promised.

Heb 1:1 — 3  God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

2. He promised never to leave you until you culminate your journey in eternity.

Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

 3. He gave a firm unfailing commitment to guarantee your being kept from falling.

Jude 1:24  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

All you need to do to appropriate this promise is to reciprocate with unwavering faith in Him, like Paul apostle. See it yourself.

2Ti 1:12  For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

Our Lord Jesus Christ kept Paul apostle to the end because of his unwavering faith in His promise. See his testimony.

2Ti 4:7 — 8  I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

 If you too will do what Paul did, our Lord shall keep you too, to the end. This is because Paul apostle has been made a pattern for believers of all ages and you are not excluded.
Be rest assured you shall be kept. So keep following the Lord in righteousness daily till He comes.

1 Timothy 1:16  Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

Friend, don’t be afraid, the dawning rapture shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name. Yes no defiling person shall have access to heaven.

Revelation 21:27  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

But then you in particular shall live eternally with God in heaven in Jesus name. This is because the Lord Jesus Christ Himself shall keep you from falling.

Jude 1:24  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

 Friend, see your own part for this to be feasible according to Jesus our Lord. You must live by the entirety of His eternal infallible and unchanging words.

Rev 3:10 — 11 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Friend, once you meet this requisite, He promised never to leave you nor forsake you.

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

His grace shall be sufficient for you in particular in Jesus name.

See you at the top in Jesus name

Beloved, even though humanity the crown of the creation of God failed Him beyond His comprehension, through the disobedience of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden.
He had not changed in His preparedness to ensure the lost dignity is restored back to them, especially you.
Praise God you are saved, hallelujah.
But then His passion is to see that converted believers like you are compassionate enough to reach out in love to all  unsaved people in their world of influence and be tirelessly used to facilitate their salvation.
Beloved are you tirelessly labouring to be used of God to facilitate the salvation of your unsaved spouse, children, siblings, parents, close and extended family members, in laws, neighbors and colleagues etc?
See what the Bible says.

Jud 1:22 — 23  And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

Beloved the truth is that if you don’t do anything about the salvation of people in your world of influence, they shall be damned, but their blood shall be required in your hands.
Even though it is God’s will for them to be saved, having done everything through Christ to guarantee their salvation, but without a preacher or you in particular, preaching to them, they shall not be saved.
They shall be damned but their blood shall be required in your hands. Don’t ever forget.

Rom 10:13 — 15  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Ezk 3:17 — 21  Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.

Beloved, see the will of God for unsaved people  in your world of influence..

Ezekiel 33:11   Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

Romans 5:8  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

1Ti 2:3 — 4  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

2 Peter 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Beloved, God is tirelessly looking for compassionate labourer to join forces with Him and saved the lost world.
Will He find you? Will you join forces with Him and rescue the perishing in your world of influence? Will you be used to turn them to righteousness?
May the Lord depend on you in particular in Jesus name.

1 Corinthians 3:9  For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

Ezk 22:30 — 31  And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God.

Daniel 12:3  And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever

Beloved, what God expects from you was done by Rahab the harlot. When she saw that her life was secured from destruction having saved the two spies Joshua sent to Jericho, she interceded for everyone in her world of influence and secured their salvation from destruction.
See it yourself.

Jos 2:12 — 13  Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the Lord, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my father’s house, and give me a true token: And that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death.

 So go and do likewise from now till Christ comes.
Dearly beloved, do you know that Jesus Christ our Lord apart from redeeming the lost world and restoring lost dignity at Eden back to them, had a very deep unchanging passion.
This was His deep passion during His earthly ministry and even now that He had returned back to heaven. See His unchanging passion.

Luke 19:10  For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

John 3:17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Luk 9:51 — 56  And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

This compelling passion of His was passed on to believers in Bible days and by extension believers of all ages and that includes you in particular.

Luke 19:13  And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

Dearly Beloved, the blessed Holy Spirit affirmed this same compelling passion of Jesus Christ, severally in the Bible. See them.

Jud 1:22 — 23  And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

Jam 5:19 — 20  Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

1 John 5:16  If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.

Dearly beloved, Jesus Christ our Lord and savior has given you example to follow, you shall have no excuse for not doing it. I am persuaded God shall use you to do so and you shall be rewarded in eternity in Jesus name.

1 Peter 2:21  For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

1Co 9:16 — 23  For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel. For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.

Col 3:23 — 24 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Friend, their is something gracious and glorious that must not elude you. It shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name.
Immediately after the dawning rapture, the raptured saints shall be entertained in the marriage supper of the Lamb. This venue is where faithful and compassionate believers like you shall be recognized and rewarded for tireless service done for Christ in love.
Those who gave themselves unreservedly for the salvation of others shall be rewarded.
Friend are you presently in compassion reaching out to the lost in your world of influence? See what the scriptures says.

Jud 1:22 — 23  And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

Friend, see how the scriptures encouraged saved believers to serve Christ now and be rewarded at eternity.

1 Corinthians 15:58  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Mal 3:16 — 18  Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts,  in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

1 Peter 1:4  To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you

Friend, this was what Paul apostle gave himself to when he was on this side of heaven and Christ promised him a great reward, even in his life time.  See it yourself.

2Ti 4:7 — 8  I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

But then the truth is that you also can expect same reward if you reach out in love to the lost in your world of influence. This is because God has made Paul apostle a pattern for believers of all ages and that includes you in particular.

1 Timothy 1:16  Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

 May the good  Lord depend on you in particular in Jesus name.

Beloved, saints in Bible days partook in the dispensation of your loving Father in heaven, until our Lord Jesus Christ,  came in His first advert to the earth.
This  dispensation came to an end on the day of Pentecost when the blessed Holy Spirit came from heaven.
Then the dispensation of the blessed Holy Spirit began and  He is already rounding up, as He shall be going back to heaven with the raptured saints.
Both the dispensations  of the Father and that of the blessed Holy Spirit are glorious and gracious but full of challenges for saints because of the tireless challenges from the devil and his cohorts.
But then the dispensation of our Lord is at the verge of beginning. It shall be for a thousand years. The devil shall not be there. He would be bound for a thousand years.

Rev 20:1 — 3  And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

The  dispensation  of Christ shall be characterised  by peace, because the Prince of Peace Himself, shall be at the helms of affairs. You shall be there in Jesus name.

Isa 9:6 — 7  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice  from henceforth even for ever.  The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Isa 11:6 — 9  The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together:  and  the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.

The event that shall precede this one thousand years dispensation of peace is referred to as the second coming.
Surprisingly, many of the old testament saints were aware of this great event. See the prophecies yourself.
1. Enoch

Jud 1:14 — 15  And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

2. Job

Job 19:25 — 27  For I know that my redeemer liveth,and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

3. Isaiah

Isa 22:21 — 22  And I will clothe him with thy robe,  and  strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah. And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut;  and he shall shut, and none shall open.

4. Jeremiah

Jer 23:5 — 6  Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, the Lord our Righteousness.

5. Daniel.

Dan 7:13 — 14  I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

6. Zechariah

Zch 14:3 — 4  Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

Beloved if the old testament saints were aware and were determined to be part of it, why not you?  You shall surely be there in Jesus name. But then be a wise virgin. Do the needful.
You must be biblically born again. You must walk in biblical holiness. Your name must not be blotted out of the book of Life. Never gain anything now at the expense of your precious undying soul.
I am persuaded of you that you are a very wise believer. So validate my persuasion by living henceforth with eternity in view. The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

Deuteronomy 32:29  O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Dearly beloved, Jesus Christ our Lord, during His earthly ministry,  spoke extensively about His second coming to energized  the Bible days believers and by extension the believers of all ages especially you.
See some of the things He said.

Matthew 16:27  For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

Mat 24:30 — 31 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Matthew 25:31  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

Matthew 26:64  Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Mark 13:26  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

Luke 21:27  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

The blessed Holy Spirit also gave same prophecies  to exhort believers like you to be part of this glorious event. You shall surely be there in Jesus name.

Jud 1:14 — 15  And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him

Act 1:9 — 11  And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

1 Thessalonians 3:13  To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

2Th 1:7 — 10  And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

Dearly beloved, the painful thing about this glorious event is that, it shall happen seven years before the dawning rapture.  Every prophecies Jesus Christ and the blessed Holy Spirit gave about the second coming have been fulfilled.
Very very unfortunately, many so called believers professing religion are not ready.
IF THE PROPHECIES ON THE SECOND COMING WHICH SHALL HAPPEN SEVEN YEARS BEFORE THE RAPTURE, HAVE BEEN FULFILLED. THEN THE RAPTURE ITSELF CAN HAPPEN BEFORE THE  NEW YEAR.
Let me ask you. Please be very sincere. Are you ready for the rapture? See what Jesus said and be ready, to help you partake in the one thousand years earthly reign of Jesus.

Mat 24:36 — 44  But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

Friend, the sure unfailing prophecies of the second coming of Jesus, affirms that the rapture is already dawning. The second coming shall take place seven years before the dawning rapture
i pray the Lord shall take you to year 2020 safe and sound in Jesus name.
However, if every prophecies about the second coming have been fulfilled. Then the rapture can take place before the end of today or even before  the  new year.  See the unfailing prophecies of the second coming.

Jud 1:14 — 15  And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

Revelation 1:7  Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Rev 19:11 — 16  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

Friend, ninety nine percent of believers globally are preparing for new year but not for the dawning rapture. You must distinguished yourself.
The good Lord shall help you to be part of the one thousand years reign of peace of Christ on earth.
But you yourself must be prepared. Please heed this all important warning from our Lord Jesus Christ, to only wise believers like you.

Luk 21:29 — 36  And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

See you at the top in Jesus name

Beloved, it was needful for me to write unto you that you should earnestly contend for the faith [ Contending for the faith ] - Jude 1:3 

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | December 26, 2019. Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I was compelled to write to you [urgently] appealing that you fight strenuously for [the defense of] the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints [the faith that is the sum of Christian belief that was given verbally to believers] – Jude 1:3

Beloved, the saints in  Bible days lived exemplary lifestyle. This was because they were willing to defend their faith in God with their blood.
They could endure  sufferings of any length to defend their faith in God.
You will recount the numbers of years Joseph suffered holding on to the righteous standard his father taught him.
This is exactly the expectation of the Lord from believers of all ages and you in particular. Don’t ever forget. See what the scriptures says.

Jude 1:3  Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

 
Paul the apostle personalized this conviction, believing the Lord had raised him up like the saints of old, to defend the gospel. 

Philippians 1:17  But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.

But then, this also is the expectation of the Lord from believers of all ages, especially you.
This is because, Paul was raised up as a pattern for believers of all ages.

1 Timothy 1:16  Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

Beloved, the reason why this becomes necessary is the fact that, just like saints of old willingly suffered for their faith in God, believers of all ages especially  you are to be joyful partakers of Christ suffering. Don’t ever forget this.

Philippians 1:29  For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

Beloved, see some examples of saints and believers in Bible days who defeated their faith through sufferings.
1. The three Hebrews were thrown literally to burning furnace for their faith in God..

Dan 3:14 — 21 Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up? Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands? Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated. And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

2. Daniel went to the den of Lions defending his faith in God.

Dan 6:7 — 11  All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellors, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions. Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not. Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree. Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime. Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.

  3. The apostles were threatened with mytrdom  to defend their faith.

Act 5:27 — 33  And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us. Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them.

Act 5:40 — Act 5:42 And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.  And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

The blessed Holy Spirit says this is the pathway for all heaven bound believers. Please be prepared to go through anything because of your faith in God.

Act 14:22  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

Revelation 2:10  Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Dearly beloved, during the earthly ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ, He lived by the faith, meaning the entirety of the scriptures.

Matthew 4:4   But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

In addition, he taught what He personally did.

Acts 1:1.  The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

And then before His  ascension to heaven, He commanded His followers then and by extension His followers today, which includes you to preach the faith. Meaning the entirety of God’s unfailing words.

Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

The blessed Holy Spirit affirmed same for perfection and edification of believers  of all ages.

2Ti 3:16 — 2Ti 3:17  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

The preaching of the entirety of the scriptures becomes necessary because the blessed Holy Spirit had prophesied that at the end of time, majority of those who are professing religion globally shall depart from the faith.
They will be disinterested in hearing it  but then they shall prefer to listening to fables from merchandise motivational speakers.

1 Timothy 4:1  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

2Ti 4:1 — 2Ti 4:4  I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. I’mFor the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

But then for heaven bound believers, like you, the faith, meaning , the preaching of the entirety of the scriptures, is a must.

Jude 1:3  Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

 It is a must when preaching to multitude or congregations.

Acts 6:7  And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

Gal 1:23  But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.

Col 1:23  If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

Col 2:7  Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

Col 2:12  Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

Eph 4:13  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.

1Ti 5:8  But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

1Ti 6:10   For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Tit 1:13  This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

James 2:1  My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.

 It is a must when preaching to an individual.

Act 13:8  But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.

Act 24:24  And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.

1Ti 1:2  Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

Tit 3:15  All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.It was written to Titus, ordained the first bishop of the church of the Cretians, from Nicopolis of Macedonia.

It is a must when preaching to  oneself. When you are edifying yourself, you must live by the entirety of the scriptures.

Gal 2:20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Phi 3:7 — 9  But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

It is a must when preaching to  people who says they don’t believe. So that their blood will not be required from your hands.

Rom 3:3  For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

Ezk 3:18 — 19  When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

 If believers and you in particular must be ready to meet with Jesus when He comes, then living by the entirety of the scriptures is SINE QUA  NON. . IT IS A MUST.

Act 14:22  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

Act 16:4 — 5  And as they went through the cities, they delivered them the decrees for to keep, that were ordained of the apostles and elders which were at Jerusalem. And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.

Rom 1:5  By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:

Please don’t allow the merchandise and motivational speakers of today  dissuade  you to pick what is convenient in the Bible to obey. It is a straight way to damnation. You shall not be damned in Jesus name.

2Ti 2:17 — 18  And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

1Ti 6:20 — 21  O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.

Now dearly beloved you can not afford to trivialize what affects your eternal well-being. Be very sincere without any presumption. Do you believe the entirety of God’s unfailing and unchanging eternal words in the Bible? Are you living by them? Please examine yourself.

2Co 13:5  Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

May the Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

Friend, the dawning rapture shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name. But then, be prepared to live by the entirety of the scriptures. This is what the Bible refers to as the faith. See it yourself.

Jude 1:3  Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

But then living by the entirety of the scriptures shall expose you to unavoidable challenges and persecutions, especially at this perilous time.

Act 14:22  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

1Pe 5:8 — 9  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

Rev 13:10  He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Rev 14:12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Friend, when you conscientiously live by the faith and resolute to endure the challenges that your wise decision might cost you, then you shall be part of this imminent event and be graciously rewarded at eternity. This shall surely be your portion in Jesus name.

2Ti 4:7 — 8  I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

So be resolute to live by the faith, meaning, the entirety of the scriptures.

1Co 16:13  Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.

Beloved, is it not marvelous that God your loving Father in heaven is not like men that lie?

Num 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie;neither the son of man, that he should repent:hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

On the contrary He is faithful, dependable, reliable and trustworthy.

1Co 1:9  God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Beloved, know it. Believe it. Settle it in your heart. He has unchanging will for you in particular to enjoy His all round earthly prosperity.

3 John 1:2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Psalms 36:8  They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

Why is this so?  Please don’t ever forget this. Your own particular prosperity brings glory to Him.
In your life before Jesus Christ comes, you shall prosper and bring glory to God in Jesus name.

Psalms 35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.

See you have many reasons to count on the faithfulness of God.
1. You can never ever seek Him in vain.

Isaiah 45:19  I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

 2. He never forgets anything you have done because of your love for Him.

Hebrews 6:10  For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

3. You shall be profited in your labour for His cause.

Pro 14:23  In all labour there is profit:but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.

4. He rewards commensurately those who diligently seek Him.

Hebrews 11:6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Beloved, if you desire His prosperity without sorrow, then be determined to meet His conditionalities.

Pro 10:22  The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich,and he addeth no sorrow with it.

See His grace  full and stress free conditions.
1. Serve Him wholeheartedly. Champion His cause. Advance the kingdom of Christ on earth.

Exo 23:25 — 26  And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

2. Be doer of His entire revealed truth in the Bible.

Joshua 1:8  This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

3. Prayerfully seek His wisdom or power for wealth.

Deuteronomy 8:18  But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

  4. Resolve to render prompt and willing Obedience to Him at all times.

Job 36:11  If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

Isaiah 1:19  If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

5. Live a lifetime, lifestyle of biblical holiness and righteousness.

Isaiah 3:10  Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for  they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

6. Work diligently with your hands without compromising your faith or following the worldly standard.

Psa 1:1 — 3  Blessed is the man  that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord;and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and  whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

 7. Cultivate a lifetime relationship with Him. Be Acquainted with Him.

Job 22:21 — Job 22:28  Acquaint  now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee. Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth,and lay up his words in thine heart. If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles. Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks. Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver. For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God.  Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee,and thou shalt pay thy vows. Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee:and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

 8.  Never ever default in paying your tithe regularly, fully and joyfully to your church.

Mal 3:10 — Mal 3:12  Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.  And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts.

Beloved remember you can not mock God. You shall reap what you sow.  So because you shall enjoy all round prosperity of the Lord, do the needful.

2Co 9:6 — 7  But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

Gal 6:7  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Dearly beloved, you in particular should be grateful to our Lord until He comes for you in the dawning rapture. This is because one of the mission of our Lord, during His earthly ministry, is to make faithful believers like you to enjoy His prosperity.

2 Corinthians 8:9  For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

Philippians 4:19  But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

How joyful and grateful you should be , because it His will that you should enjoy His all round earthly prosperity.. FINANCIAL, PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL.

3 John 1:2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

However, His condition is that your access to these all round prosperity is  hinged on your spiritual growth.
No marvel, the Bible says you in particular should  be diligent to  grow in grace and the knowledge of our Lord. In addition, He gave ministers to help you to grow spiritually.

 

2Pe 3:18  But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Eph 4:11 — 14  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

2Pe 1:5 — 9  And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

Dearly beloved, the extent of earthly prosperity that comes to you through our Lord is dependent on your spiritual growth.

3 John 1:2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

See this clearly articulated in the scriptures.
1. Follow Him wholeheartedly and He will help you achieve your dreams.

Matthew 4:19  And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

2. Always give God preeminence in all you do..

Matthew 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

 3. Determinedly be laying treasures in heaven, so you can receive from the bank of heaven.

Mat 6:20  But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

Matthew 19:29  And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

Mar 10:28 — 30  Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

 4. Live a lifetime, lifestyle of biblical godliness.

1 Timothy 4:8  For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

May the Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
Friend, don’t ever forget believers like you that shall be part of the dawning rapture are those that give attention and prominence to eternal things more than transient ephemeral.
Because you are going to be ready for this imminent event, then see to it that , this must be your lifestyle till Christ comes.  See what the Bible says.

3 John 1:2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Deuteronomy 32:29  O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Col 3:1 — 4  If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Mal 3:17 — Mal 3:18 And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

Friend, a great reward await you for giving preeminence to the things of God and serving  Him.

1 Corinthians 15:58  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Those who are pursuing ephemeral at the expense of their eternal well-being, shall not be part of the rapture and shall be damned.  This shall not be your portion, so don’t follow this detestable damnable lifestyle.

Matthew 16:26  For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

Beloved,  right from the outset of creation, God your loving Father in heaven had  unchanging  strong passion to walk with humanity, the crown of His creation.

Genesis 3:8  And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden

Although God had  this strong unchanging  passion, yet He alone set the pace and conditions for walking with humanity. Only those who walk in agreement with His conditionality benefits immensely from it.

Amos 3:3  Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Adam and Eve failed to sustain their walk with God, but others like  Enoch, Noah, Abraham submitted wholeheartedly with these conditions and benefitted unusually walking with God.
See their walking with Him and the unusual benefits.
Enoch

Gen 5:21 — 24  And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Hebrews 11:5  By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

Noah.

Genesis 6:9  These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

Hebrews 11:7  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

Abraham.

Genesis 17:1  And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

Gen 22:15 — 18  And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

Beloved very very unfortunately, God extended this same unusual privilege to others but they declined and rejected the offer.
I am persuaded  you shall not be like them and because of this, you shall be unusually Blessed here and hereafter in Jesus name.

Jeremiah 6:16  Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

Beloved, because of the desire of the blessed Holy Spirit to facilitate your benefiting in the privileges of walking with God, He gave you this exhortation. See it yourself.

2 John 1:4  I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.

Walking with God simply means living by the totality of the truth revealed in the scriptures without adding to or diminishing from them.
Doing this shall guarantee your desired earthly success and also blissful eternity with God. These shall surely be your portion in Jesus mighty name.

Joshua 1:8  This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Never ever add or remove from the scriptures like the manners of the multitude of nominal churchgoers, globally. They pick and choose what is convenient for them in the Bible and flagrantly reject others to their undoing.. You must not be like them.

Deu 4:1 — 2  Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers giveth you. Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

Deuteronomy 12:32  What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

Pro 30:5 — 6  Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.  Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Beloved, the Lord expects you in particular to be doing His entire revealed truth in the Bible and then teach others in your world of influence, beginning from your home.

Ezra 7:10  For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.

James 1:22  But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

Malachi 2:6  The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.

I rejoice with you because you   have the reputation of being wise. So remain wise till Christ comes, doing this word below.

Hosea 14:9  Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

Dearly beloved, it should be your resolve to be like believers in Bible days.  They were excited in their wholehearted obedience to  the entirety of scriptures. This was  because Jesus Christ our Lord and savior was  the living, spoken and written word of God.
In addition to this, He also was the truth personified. See all of these yourself.

Jn 1:1 — 2  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.

1 John 5:7  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Dearly beloved, because the blessed Holy Spirit wants you in particular to follow their exemplary lifestyle, He gave you this exhortation. See it.

2 John 1:4  I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.

This should never poise any difficulty for you because our Lord Jesus Christ, Himself did the same thing, before passing the teachings to His followers of all ages and you in particular.

Acts 1:1  The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

See what our Lord did and taught.

Matthew 4:4  But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Mat 5:19 — 20  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Mat 7:24 — 27  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Jn 8:31 — 32  Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Jn 12:46 — 48  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

The blessed Holy Spirit complemented  the teachings of our Lord Jesus and further revealed, how walking in the truth of the scriptures can be simplified and done without stress through the grace of God . See it.

Ephesians 5:2  And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

Ephesians 5:8  For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

1Jo 1:6 — 7  If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

1 John 2:6  He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

Receive grace to do so and be unusably blessed now and at eternity in Jesus name.

2 Corinthians 9:8  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

Friend, I earnestly pray for you in particular that you shall be part of the dawning rapture in Jesus name.
But then join forces with me for God to answer my sincere prayers for you, by determinedly living by the entirety of the revealed truth of the scriptures.

2 John 1:4  I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.

This becomes necessary because those who failed to live by the entirety of the scriptures according to our Lord Jesus Himself, shall be part of the fearsome and frightful great tribulations.  This shall not be  your portion in Jesus name.

Rev 3:10 — 11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Friend, you must understand why this shall be so. Please don’t ever forget this. Any part of the scriptures deliberately not taught by any minister or not done by anyone and everyone who profess religion, shall remove their names from the book of Life.
And once that happens, such a person shall be consigned to hell fire. This shall not be your portion. So avoid it.

Rev 22:18 — 19  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Revelation 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Friend, anyone and everyone who reject any part of the scriptures falls into the categories of people calling our Lord Jesus Christ, Lord but stubbornly  refuse to submit to His sayings in the Bible.
Such people shall not be part of this imminent event. But you shall surely be part of it, so don’t do what they are doing. It is well with you in particular in Jesus name.

Luke 6:46  And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

See you at the top in Jesus name

Beloved, there is an adage  that is applicable  all over the world.  This is what it says.. Ignorance of the law is not an excuse.
Biblical believers should know that in the economy of God in His eternal kingdom, this adage is biblical and applicable.
Ignorance of what you don’t know is not an excuse and it shall still condemn whoever is guilty of it. See it yourself.

Romans 1:20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Beloved, the Bible warns believers of all ages especially you to avoid idol worship. This is because your loving Father in heaven abhors it.

1 John 5:21  Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Exo 20:3 — 6  Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Beloved, what them is idolatry or idol worship?  Who is an idol worshipper?  See what the Bible says.

1 Samuel 15:23  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and  stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Colossians 3:5  Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

1Co 10:19 — 22  What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?

From those scriptures, it established that idolatry or idol worship are:
1. Stubbornness or stubbornly rejecting godly counsel.
2. Covetousness is also idolatry or idol worship.
3. Fellow shipping in sacrifices  of the devil, is idolatry or idol worship. 
Don’t forget ignorance of what you don’t know is punishable in all the countries on the face of the Earth and most importantly in the kingdom of God also.
The Bible says God’s people. Those who profess religion are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
You shall not be destroyed in Jesus name. But then don’t stubbornly reject revealed and established truth of the scriptures.

Hosea 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

The Bible says you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free from ignorance of  non excusable sins.  May the good Lord. Help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

John 8:32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Beloved, biblical believers have a peculiar and particular lifestyle. If they have been innocently and ignorantly doing anything for many years, but now  discover from the scriptures that, the thing is wrong from the perspective of the Lord, they repent and stop it immediately.

Job 34:32  That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.

Beloved, the Bible says you should not follow the multitude to be doing evil. For the fact that the whole world is doing something or majority is doing it , does not make it right. See it yourself.

Exodus 23:2  Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:

This is because as a biblical believer, you have been separated to God. Don’t ever forget this.

Lev 20:22 — 26  Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out. And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them. But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey: I am the Lord your God, which have separated you from other people. Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.

Deu 18:9 — 14  When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God. For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.

Beloved,  Xmas celebration is idolatry. Go through the Bible and check up whether there was an instance where the birth of Christ was celebrated. Where in the Bible was it revealed that our Lord Jesus Christ was born in December 25th.
The Xmas celebration was actually legalised and legislated  by idolatry Roman Catholic worshippers in Rome , many centuries ago.
In Rome they celebrated the worship of sun god on December 25th. While doing it, they get into dangerous immortal revelling and exchange of gifts and the symbol of the sun is decorated on a tree.
It is that tree you call Xmas tree today with golden round object like the sun. Please don’t bring Xmas tree to your house. It is idolatry. God is highly displeased with it.
The idolatrous Roman Catholic worshipping Mary in order to get their worshippers to come and worship on December 25  then renamed the sun god worship, day to  Xmas day.
Just like the worship of the sungod too. They also encouraged revelling, exchange of gifts and then introduce their own tree which they call Xmas tree. See what the scriptures says about the tree they used  that is called by the idolatrous  Roman Catholic Xmas tree.

Jer 10:1 — 4  Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:  Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen,and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.  They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

Beloved our Lord Jesus was not born in December. His birth was never for once celebrated in the Bible.
The idolatrous spirit behind the sungod is what makes people inside or outside of the church , who  claim  to be celebrating Xmas to get into shameful sinful practices and claiming to be celebrating holy and righteous Son of the living God.
It is time you separate yourself from it. This is because it is idolatry. You can not eat on the table of the Lord and that of the devil. It has eternal consequences.

Job 34:32  That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.

1Co 10:19 — 22  What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?

Dearly beloved Jesus Christ our Lord and savior was very firm that His true followers should never ever give what belong to God to Caeser.

Matthew 22:21  They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.

1 John 5:21  Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

In addition , He was very unmistaken about His firm instruction that His own faithful followers can not serve two masters.

Luk 16:13  No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

The blessed Holy Spirit amplified this by exhorting biblical believers like you never ever to eat on the Lord’s table and at the same time be eating at the table of the devil.

1Co 10:19 — 22  What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?

Joining the sinning worldlings who have no regard for the shameful and painful substitutional sacrifice of Christ our Lord in celebrating Xmas is idolatry. They are not sober.
There is no willingness in them to stop sinning and consider what made Jesus our Lord to be born into this sinful world.
How come they are celebrating the birth of the one they flagrantly disregard. Jesus came to this world to save sinners.
On Xmas day , sin is shamefully and flagrantly committed like Valentine day. Must an heaven bound believers be part of this? The answer is no.

Matthew 1:21  And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

What made believers and perhaps you to forget, you are not supposed to be unequally yoked together with the worldlings in devilish ,idolatrous sacrifice, called Xmas celebration.

2Co 6:14 — 15  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

No doubt you are not aware. But then sin of ignorance still have eternal consequences.
This  is because it makes the innocent ignorant offender guilty. Don’t ever forget.

Leviticus 4:13  And if the whole congregation of Israel sin through ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done somewhat against any of the commandments of the Lord concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty;

Leviticus 4:22  When a ruler hath sinned, and done somewhat through ignorance against any of the commandments of the Lord his God concerning things which should not be done, and is guilty;

Leviticus 4:27  And if any one of the common people sin through ignorance, while he doeth somewhat against any of the commandments of the Lord concerning things which ought not to be done, and be guilty;

Dearly beloved you might be celebrating Xmas innocently and ignorantly. You are guilty, because it is idolatry.  Please stop it and don’t bring Xmas tree into your home. It displease God so much.
See what His words says on idolatry and idol worship.

1 Corinthians 10:7  Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

This is exactly what is done in the name of celebrating the birth of righteous Son of God.
They practice shameful immortal revelling.  See what the Bible says.

1 Corinthians 10:14  Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.

Revelation 9:20  And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

See the consequences of idol worship.

Revelation 14:11  And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

The commandment of God to help you avoid this fearsome consequence, is to come out from being part of it immediately and untill Jesus Christ comes. I pray that the Lord will help you in particular in Jesus name.

2Co 6:16 — 18  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Friend pause and sincerely think about it. Do you think an idol worshipper shall be part of the dawning rapture. The person making God jealous. Such a person shall be lost. You shall not be lost in Jesus name.

Exo 20:3 — 6  Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

So keep His commandment and never be involved in anything that has implication to idolatry.

1 John 5:21  Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Friend those that shall be part of the imminent event must be perfect.

Matthew 5:48  Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

It is through the scriptures that you are instructed on the way to biblical perfection.  This is the essence of this inspirational devotional.

2Ti 3:16 — 2Ti 3:17  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Friend, you are a wise person. Don’t forget that what you do now with these scriptures to make you perfect shall determine your eternal well-being.
The good Lord shall help you in particular to wisely consider what the blessed Holy Spirit is saying to you now in Jesus name.

Jn 12:46 — Jn 12:48  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

2 Timothy 2:7  Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.

Beloved, if you go back to memory lane, you will discover saints of old that benefitted immensely from God, were those who had faith in His unfailing and unchanging faithfulness.
In deed God your loving Father in heaven is a faithful, dependable and reliable personality.

Deuteronomy 7:9  Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

1Co 1:9  God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Corinthians 10:13  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Beloved, if you too shall benefit from God like the saints of old , you must have and manifest unwavering faith in His dependable faithfulness.
This is because without such faith, you can not receive anything from Him.

Hebrews 11:6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Jam 1:5 — 8  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

The likes of Noah who have never seen rain but believed God enough to build an ark  and saved himself and his family.

Hebrews 11:7  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

Think of Abraham that staggered not at the promise of God, but trusted His unfailing faithfulness and had the promised son.

Rom 4:16 — 22  Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.

Heb 6:13 — 16  For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.

Think of Sarah that had power to conceive a baby when she had passed the age but trusted in the faithfulness of God.

Hebrews 11:11  Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

Beloved, the blessed Holy Spirit wants you in particular to benefit greatly from God and so exhorts you on how to do it. See it yourself.

1 John 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

You can overcome and receive every desired promise in the Bible through unwavering faith in the unfailing faithfulness of God. It is through this  faith  that  you  shall continually  stop  the manipulation of the devil.

Ephesians 6:16  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked

Beloved you grow in that faith by conscientiously hearing and reading the word of God.

Romans 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.
Dearly beloved, there  was  a virtue and beautiful attribute that our Lord had, that made believers in Bible days to cleave to Him and even submitted themselves to matydom

Rev 2:13  I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

It was His trustworthy faithfulness.
Always remember this, please don’t ever forget. Our Lord is very faithful.  See what the Bible says.

Hebrews 2:17  Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

Revelation 1:5  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

Rev 3:14  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

Our Lord taught His followers then and by extension His followers now and that includes you on the importance of having unwavering faith in God and His unfailing words in the Bible.
These were the things that builded them up. See  for yourself.

Mark 11:22  And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

Mar 10:27  And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

Mar 11:23 — 24  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Mark 9:23  Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Luke 1:45  And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

Luke 1:37  For with God nothing shall be impossible.

John 11:40  Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

The Blessed Holy Spirit also encouraged  believers of all ages and you in particular to have unwavering faith in God , in the name of Jesus and also patiently wait for the fulfilment of His promises. See them.
1. Unwavering Faith in God.

1 John 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

2. Faith in the mighty name of Jesus.

Acts 3:16  And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.

3. Patiently waiting for fulfilment of His unfailing promises.

Heb 10:35 — 39  Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

Dearly beloved receive grace to do all these and be blessed like them in Jesus name.
Friend, you shall surely be part of the dawning rapture in Jesus name.  All you need to do is ensure your faith in the faithfulness of God is not wavering or waning.
The Lord will help you in particular in Jesus name.

1 John 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Friend when you conscientiously sustain your faith in God, it will enable you to do the following that shall facilitate your readiness when the imminent event takes place.
1. Submitting to God and resisting  or giving no place to the devil.

Ephesians 4:27  Neither give place to the devil.

James 4:7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

1 John 5:18   We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

2. Living by the entirety of God’s unfailing words in the Bible.

Rev 3:10 — 11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

 3 . Remaining faithful to God till Jesus comes through thick and thin..

Rev 2:10  Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Rev 17:14  These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

God’s grace Shall be sufficient for you in particular in Jesus name.

2 Corinthians 9:8  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
