Beloved, it is not an exaggeration or overstatement, when the blessed Holy Spirit says that all the true followers of our Lord Jesus Christ ,  especially you, should look unto Abraham.  See it.

Isa 51:1 — Isa 51:2  Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.

Abraham was reputed among the entire saints of God, apart from our Lord Jesus Christ, to heed the calls of the Lord promptly at all times.
See some of them.
1. The call to salvation or departure from idolatrous home.

Gen 12:1 — Gen 12:4  Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

2. The call to perfection or holier walk with God.

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.

3. The call to circumcision of the foreskin. Circumcision of heart to love God above any other things.

Gen 17:23 — Gen 17:27  And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham’s house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him. And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. In the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his son. And all the men of his house, born in the house, and bought with money of the stranger, were circumcised with him.

Jeremiah 4:4  Circumcise yourselves to the Lord, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.

Deuteronomy 30:6  And the Lord thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

4. The call to sacrificial lifestyle.

Gen 22:1 — Gen 22:3  And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.

Beloved, as you closely check the scriptures, you will discover that Abraham’s response to all of these calls were very very prompt.
See how the Lord expect you too , to respond to all His calls to you.

Psalms 119:60  I made haste, and delayed not  to keep thy commandments.

It was not surprising that Abraham received sworn blessings on earth and a  comfortable bosom at eternity.

Gen 22:15 — Gen 22:18  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.

Luke 16:22  And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

Luke 16:25  But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

Luke 13:28  There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

Heb 11:13 — Heb 11:16  These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

 Beloved, settle it in your heart, since God remains the same and our Lord does not change.  He has same promised blessings for you here and hereafter.
God shall help you in particular to access and enjoy them in Jesus name.

Malachi 3:6  For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Hebrews 13:8  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

But then you too must resolve determinedly to heed the calls of the Lord promptly.
His grace shall avail 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:

Let us discover together from the scriptures, His calls for you that shall guarantee your readiness for the dawning rapture and accessing and enjoying desired earthly blessings.
All of these, He will give you to richly enjoy in Jesus name.

1Ti 6:17  Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

1  He calls you to biblical repentance.

Act 3:19 — Act 3:20  Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:

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.

Mark 1:15  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Rev 2:4 — Rev 2:5  Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

2. He calls you to biblical salvation, freedom from all sins, newness of life and continual walk on the road that leads to life eternal.

Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Matthew 11:28  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

John 3:3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 8:11  She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

2 Corinthians 6:2. (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

2 Corinthians 5:17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Romans 6:4  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Mat 7:13 — Mat 7:14  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Luk 13:23 — Luk 13:28  Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

Isa 35:8 — Isa 35:9  And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.  No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

Heb 12:1 — Heb 12:2   Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

3. He calls you to saintliness, holiness and sanctifiied lifestyle.

Romans 1:7  To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 1:2  Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

1Th 4:3 — 1Th 4:4  For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

1 Thessalonians 4:7  For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

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

Heb 13:12 — Heb 13:14  Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

2Co 5:14 — 2Co 5:15  For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

1Pe 4:1 — 1Pe 4:2  Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

Tit 2:11 — Tit 2:14  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; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Eph 5:25 — Eph 5:27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

1 John 3:3  And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

4. He calls you to separation from the world and worldly association.

2Co 6:17 — 2Co 6:18  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.

Isaiah 52:11  Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.

Jam 1:27  Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Eph 5:11 — Eph 5:12  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

Rom 12:1 — Rom 12:2  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

James 4:4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

5. He calls you to service, to rescue the perishing in your world of influence.

Isaiah 6:8  Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

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

Act 16:9 — Act 16:10  And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us. And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.

Jud 1:22 — Jud 1:23  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.

6. He calls you to defend the gospel,  earnestly contend for the faith ,joyfully endure persecution and live by the entirety of the scriptures.

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

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.

Matthew 24:13  But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

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;

Revelation 2:25  But that which ye have already hold fast till I come

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  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.

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.

7. He calls you to follow Him through thick and thin, and partake in the marriage supper of the Lamb.

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

Revelation 4:1   After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

Rev 14:4 — Rev 14:5   These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Revelation 3:5  He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Rev 19:9  And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Beloved, Abraham all through responded promptly all the time God calls Him, receive grace to do likewise in Jesus name.

Luk 10:37  And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

And the whole earth was of one language, and they said, let us build us a tower [ Babel ], and God said, let us go down and confound them - Genesis 11:1-9

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | February 28, 2020. Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional  –  Genesis 11:1-9  – And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

Beloved, I want you to be mindful of one unique privilege that our loving Father in heaven have given to humanity, the crown of His creation, that, He will never ever take away.
For every human beings and that includes you. You are created a free moral agent. You are given liberty to choose to do good and be obedient to God or choose to disobey Him and face the consequences.
It all began with Adam and Eve and they chose disobedience and suffered the incalculable losses.

Gen 2:15 — Gen 2:17  And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Just like Adam, the same privilege is placed at your disposal. What will you do with it.  I am persuaded you shall choose to be obedient to God in all things and enjoy His blessings. So shall it be in Jesus name.

Deu 30:19 — Deu 30:20  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

Immediately after the flood that destroyed the whole earth. God made His plans known to the new generation.  They were supposed to replenish the whole earth. See it.
 

Genesis 9:1  And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

Genesis 9:7  And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

God was very emphatic on His new plan and gave them opportunity as free moral agent to do the right thing. But then, the first rebellion was  recorded.  They set aside the plan of God, to make name for themselves.  See it.

Genesis 11:4  And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

This is what is called BABEL ,serving God at your own terms . See the full account of the issue.
 

Gen 11:1 — Gen 11:9.  And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

 
Beloved, before you begin to judge these people, why don’t you examine yourself. Are you better than them?  Has  God  not made His will known to you in the Bible?
What are you doing with them? Are you obeying the entirety of God’s unfailing words in the Bible or you choose to serve Him, on your own terms and not His revealed will?
See what God is saying to you in particular.

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

You need to know that God always address rebellion and disobedience in the same way. You have seen how He handled BABEL.
There languages were confounded and they were scattered.
If you go through the Bible, you will discover that this privilege given to humanity have been misused and multitude of people have suffered irrevocable losses.
This shall not be your portion.  So desist from such lifestyle.  See what the Bible says about some people in Bible days.
 

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.

Jeremiah 2:13  For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.

Jeremiah 2:25  Withhold thy foot from being unshod, and thy throat from thirst: but thou saidst, There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go.

Jeremiah 18:12  And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.

Jeremiah 22:21    I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but thou saidst, I will not hear.This hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my voice.

 

Jer 7:23 — Jer 7:24  But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

Jer 44:16 — Jer 44:17  As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the Lord, we will not hearken unto thee. But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.

Jeremiah 8:6 I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle.

Jeremiah 8:12  Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the Lord.

Psalms 12:4  Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?

 

Exodus 5:2  And Pharaoh said, Who is the Lord, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the Lord, neither will I let Israel go.

Job 21:15  What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?

Luke 19:14  But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.

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

Jn 9:24 — Jn 9:28  Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples? Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples.

Mat 7:21 — Mat 7:23  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Beloved, globally, this same attitude is still prevalent. Today multitude in Christendom think they could placate God with offerings and worship, while  living in  outright disobedience to His words. They shall be abysmally disappointed.
See what God says about your offerings.

1Sa 15:22 — 1Sa 15:23  And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.  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.

Pro 15:8  The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord:but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

See what God says about your  worship. God magnifies His words more than any way, you might worship Him. Don’t be deceived.

Psalms 138:2  I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name

Beloved, your desire to be part of the dawning rapture shall be granted in Jesus name. But then you must heed the warning of God on BABEL.
If after you have known the reveal will of God on any issue and then you do contrary.  Certainly, such a person is going to face severe wrath of God. See it.

Heb 10:26 — Heb 10:31  For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

But then to be on the safe side, be in agreement with God.

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

Not all roads lead to heaven. Only the narrow road. The way of holiness.
 Is that where you are walking?  If not, we certainly will not see you in heaven. Join the road now . Repent.
 

Mat 7:13 — Mat 7:14  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Luk 13:24 — Luk 13:27  Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

Isa 35:8 — Isa 35:9  And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.  No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

Beloved, if you must be part of the dawning rapture, you must be living the lifestyle of a wise virgin.
There are innumerable numbers of foolish virgins in the universal church of Christ.

Mat 25:1 — Mat 25:13  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

If you want to be part of the rapture.  Are you biblically born again?
Are you walking in biblical holiness and righteousness as revealed in the Bible.
Have you done your restitutions?
Have you sent away the remarried spouse, when your rightful spouse is still alive?
Have stopped giving or taking bribe?
Are you free from worldliness and worldly association?

James 4:4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

 

1Jo 2:15 — 1Jo 2:17  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

 
Are you living by the entirety of God’s unfailing words in the Bible?

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  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.

Are you part of the glorious church?
See what must characterize your lifestyle.

Eph 5:25 — Eph 5:27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

 

Tit 2:11 — Tit 2:13  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;

Are you part of the graceless church?  See what characterise their lifestyle.

2Ti 3:1 — 2Ti 3:5  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.

Titus 1:16  They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

 
Please be very sincere. Don’t be presumptuous. Examine yourself. Which of the churches you belong to?
 

2 Corinthians 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?

See the resolution of Joshua. A member of   the   glorious church.

Joshua 24:15  And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

See what the Lord said of Abraham on this side of heaven and in eternity, living with God.
Earthly blessings.

Gen 22:15 — Gen 22:18  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.

Eternal blessings.

Heb 11:13 — Heb 11:16  These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

So follow these  good examples. Do what the scriptures says to be part of the imminent rapture or glory with God. The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

Isa 33:15 — Isa 33:17  He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;  He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.  Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

See you at the top in Jesus name

Beloved, after Adam and Eve gave  in  to the deception of the devil, they  lost the image of God,.
It is very important for you to know the image of God lost by Adam. It was God’s nature.  See it.
 

Ephesians 4:24  And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Our  gracious and loving Father in heaven, immediately put in place  the singular acceptable provision to restore lost glory to humanity.  See what He did  in prophecy.

Genesis 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

This simply means Jesus our Lord and savior,   through His shameful and painful excruciating substitutionary death on the cross shall bruise the head of the devil.
Beloved, see the consequences  of the disobedience of Adam and the redemptive works of Christ.

Romans 5:17  For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

Romans 5:19  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Romans 5:21  That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

See the  reality of the crucifixion prophesied. It is very frightening.

Isa 53:4 — Isa 53:11  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way;  and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death;  because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many;  for he shall bear their iniquities.

Isaiah 50:6  I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

Psa 22:6 — Psa 22:8  But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,  He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

Psa 22:12 — Psa 22:18  Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.  They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion. I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.  For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.  I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.  They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Lam 1:12  Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by? behold, and seeif there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow, which is done unto me,wherewith the Lord hath afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger.

Then now see it happened in reality.
1. Spit in his face and buffeted.

Mat 26:67 — Mat 26:68  Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands, Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?

2. Scourged  and disgraced.

Jn 19:1 — Jn 19:5  Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

3. Nailed to be cross and even forsaken by the Father, because He was carrying your sin.

Mark 15:34  And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Luk 23:33 — Luk 23:34  And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Beloved, see what His substantial sacrifice procured for you.
1. Reconciled  back  to God.

Eph 2:14 — Eph 2:19  For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.  Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

2. Hope  of  eternal life

Tit 3:4 — Tit 3:7  But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

3. Sanctification.

Heb 13:12 — Heb 13:14  Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

4.  Redemption from curses and provision of divers desired blessings.

Gal 3:13 — Gal 3:14  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

5. Likeness to Christ.

2 Corinthians 3:18  But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

6. Privilege to serve Christ.

1Co 15:57 — 1Co 15:58  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 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.

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

7. Power over the devil.

Col 2:14 — Col 2:15  Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Luke 10:19  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Romans 16:20  And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

8.  The  door of glory  widely open for you.

Heb 2:9 — Heb 2:10  But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.  For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Jn 14:1 — Jn 14:3.   Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Beloved, all of these were procured for you through the cross or crucifixion, free of charge.

Romans 8:32  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Beloved, see all that God has provided for you through the shameful and painful excruciating substitutionary death of Christ on the cross of Calvary.

Jn 3:16 — Jn 3:17   For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Pause and sincerely think about this.  If the whole world should go to hell, despite these provisions. Do you think you should go to hell?
What are you going to do with the crucifixion of Christ?
Would you allow this shameful death of God’s only begotten Son of God to be in vain?  God forbid. See what Paul wrote about his labour for the gentiles, that includes you.

Gal 4:11  I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

Phi 2:16  Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

1 Thessalonians 3:5  For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labour be in vain.

Must the labour of our Lord and that of Paul and other ministers of God be in vain, concerning you?
Are you really born again?
Are you a new creature?
Is your name in the book of life?
Are you free from sin?
Are you walking with God in biblical holiness and righteousness?
Should Jesus Christ come this day, will you be among the raptured saints?
Should the door of glory be opened for you today, where will you spend eternity?
Please don’t let the crucifixion of Christ be in vain for  you. It shall not be in Jesus name.
See what your resolution should be.

Rom 8:35 — Rom 8:39  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.

Please don’t forget this. Jesus looks forward to seeing you in particular in heaven. Make sure you don’t fail Him.

Mal 3:16 — Mal 3:18  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.

Beloved, the Bible is God’s wisdom in print. The onus is on you to acquaint yourself with this wisdom and get wiser. The good Lord shall help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

Deu 4:5 — Deu 4:6  Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

Everything written before that happened to others should be an issue of concern to you and  for you to do everything to avert reoccurrence of the same thing from happening to you.

Romans 15:4  For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

1 Corinthians 10:11  Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

You must know and never ever forget this. That God’s blessings are conditional.

Jer 18:7 — Jer 18:10  At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.

Be very thoughtful and consider what happened to Adam and Eve. God brought them to the good garden, God’s paradise on earth.
But then from inception, God told Adam the condition for Him to sustain this great blessing. See it.

Gen 2:15 — Gen 2:17  And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Adam and Eve took God for granted.  They erred on the condition and they were driven out from the good garden. What a shame.

Gen 3:1 — Gen 3:7  Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Gen 3:22 — Gen 3:24 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

There was another instance of God’s most beloved people on earth.
He brought them out of captivity of four hundred and thirty years by His might power.
He led them on their way to the promised Land with clear spelt constitutionality.
Six hundred thousand of them left Egypt. Because they took God for granted, only two of them got to the promised Land. What a shame.

Exo 12:37  And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children.

Only Caleb and Joshua got to the promised Land.

Num 14:30 — Num 14:34 Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun. But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised. But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness. And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness. After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.

Beloved , what is the essence of critically considering these shameful misfortunes.
It is for you to know that living in eternity with God or partaking in the dawning rapture is not just an easy venture.
If you desire it, you must go all out to meet with the well spelt out conditions for attaining it.

Rev 22:11 — Rev 22:15 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Beloved, innumerable numbers of so called ministers and believers have ended up in hell fire now, because they took God for granted and failed to meet with the conditions of making it to heaven. 
 
Your case shall not be like this. So determinedly meet the conditions of partaking in the imminent rapture or glory.
 
Beloved, you need to come to realize that God place so much premium on obedience to Him, than every other things.
 

Jeremiah 7:23  But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

1Sa 15:22 — 1Sa 15:23  And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 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.

It is very unfortunate that today’s motivational speakers and merchandise preachers globally places emphasis on offerings and rendering services in the church.
This is the singular reason why multitude of nominal churchgoers globally are ending up damned in hell.
See even to attain God’s blessings without sorrow on this side of heaven ,you need obedience to meet the conditions. See some of them.

Psa 1:1 — Psa 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.

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

Gen 22:17 — Gen 22:18  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.

Exodus 15:26  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Exo 23:25 — Exo 23:26  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.

Deu 28:1 — Deu 28:2  And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.

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

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

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

The conditions are also well spelt out for you to attain spiritual blessings.

Proverbs 28:13  He that covereth his sins shall not prosper:  but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Isa 55:6 — Isa 55:7  Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:  Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

Act 17:30 — Act 17:31   And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Acts 13:48  And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.

Act 16:30 — Act 16:31  And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Exodus 32:33  And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

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

Beloved, see the conditions if you really want to partake in  the dawning rapture or live  with God in glory.
This is your heritage, but you must meet with the spelt out conditions.

John 3:3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God

2 Corinthians 5:17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

1. You must be biblically saved and become a new creature.

Mat 7:13 — Mat 7:14  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Isa 35:8 — Isa 35:9  And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.  No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

2. You must be walking on the narrow road or the way of holiness.

Matthew 5:8  Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Hebrews 12:14  Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

Eph 5:25 — Eph 5:27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

3. You must be sanctifiied and be living in biblical holiness.

Revelation 3:5  He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

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.

4 You must ensure nothing sinful or  defiling,  removes  your name from the book of life.

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  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.

5. You must be living by the entirety of the scriptures.
Beloved, don’t be like Adam or the children of Israel. Don’t take God for granted.
God’s grace can be sufficient for you to be ready for rapture or glory. The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

Tit 2:11 — Tit 2:14  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; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Beloved, you are merciful to others, please show mercy to yourself.
It is painful that some so called believers don’t show mercy to themselves. See this.

Proverbs 28:13  He that covereth his sins shall not prosper:  but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

My heart is full of pains as I behold so many so called believers, who failed to place right premium on their undying soul.
Beloved, do you really knows the meaning of forever?  Eternity either in heaven or hell is going to be forever.
Let the Bible shows you what forever means. Either in heaven or hell.
Heaven.

Rev 22:1 — Rev 22:7  And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.  And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.  Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

Rev 7:9 — Rev 7:17  After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.  And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?  And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Hell.

Mar 9:43 — Mar 9:48  And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Matthew 25:41  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Isaiah 33:14  The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

Rev 14:9 — Rev 14:12  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 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. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Luk 16:22 — Luk 16:25  And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

Have you conscientiously counted the cost , if your soul should  end up in hell? It shall not be in Jesus name.
I pray for you in particular, that whatever God needed to do, to ensure you make it to heaven, would be done by Him in Jesus name.
Always remember that satan has been on this side of  heaven now for more than six thousand years.
Always remember that satan is very intelligent and extremely deceptive.
Do you remember it was Adam that named all the animals without no input or correction from God.?
This was because, he was created in the image of God.
Can you imagine such a highly intelligent person like Adam, falling a victim of the deceptive  prey of satan?
See what the Bible says.

1Co 10:11 — 1Co 10:12  Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

Beloved, satan made Adam and Eve to be sent out of paradise on earth.
My earnest prayer for you in particular, is that , satan shall not hinder you from eternal paradise with God in Jesus name.
Because this shall not happen , them take necessary steps to answer always this most dangerous question. See it.
HATH GOD SAID?
By the special grace of God, He in His infinite mercy had opened your understanding of the book of Revelations in the Bible in the just concluded studies we had.
 By God’s grace you are aware of the imminence of the rapture and indescribable sufferings of those that shall be part of the great tribulations.
Then be expecting Satan.  He will surely come and ask you. Hath God said?
This was the undoing of Adam and Eve, that culminated on their been sent out of paradise on earth.  See it.

Gen 3:1 — Gen 3:6  Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Gen 3:22 — Gen 3:24  And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Beloved, let me take you through some of the things, the Bible says about satan.

2Co 2:11  Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

Eph 6:10 — Eph 6:11  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

1Pe 5:8 — 1Pe 5:9  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.

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

John 10:10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

The reason why many so called believers are falling prey  unto his hands is this. Please don’t ever forget.
The devil was the one that came to Eve. He was the one that came to Jesus. So without any iota of doubt, he will come to you and ask. Hath God said? See what the Bible says.

Matthew 4:3  And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

He will not come to you as a serpent. See the way , he will come.

Matthew 7:15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

2Co 11:13 — 2Co 11:15  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

He will come to you as a concerned Peter,
Concerned spouse, like Sarah brought her maid to Abraham.  Ishmael is still persecuting Isaac. Moslems Jihadist against Christians.
Concerned parents. Like Rebekah encouraged Jacob to deceive Issac his father.
Concerned old prophet lied to be young prophet and was latter slain by a lion.  Please watch out.

Mat 16:21 — Mat 16:23  From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

No wonder, God  gave several warnings in the Bible to save you in particular from this snare.
Take advantage of these  warnings. See some of them.

1Co 10:12 — 1Co 10:13  Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. 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.

Deu 13:1 — Deu 13:11  If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the Lord thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.  If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.

Deu 18:9 — Deu 18:14  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.

Rom 16:17 — Rom 16:18  Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

2Jo 1:8 — 2Jo 1:11  Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.  Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Isa 8:19 — Isa 8:20  And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?  To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word,

it is because there is no light in them.
Beloved,  Satan comes to steal and kill and destroy the eternal well-being of carefree believers, using four major strategies.

John 10:10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

See it.   It is called : HALT. That is when the believer is : hungry, angry, lonely and tired.
H :  Hungry.
A : Angry
L: Lonely
T :. Tired
See instances of these:
Hungry: Esau lost the birthright and it’s privilege.

Gen 25:29 — Gen 25:34  And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint: And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.

Angry : Moses missed the promised Land.

Num 20:7 — Num 20:13  And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink. And Moses took the rod from before the Lord, as he commanded him. And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock? And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also. And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them. This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove with the Lord, and he was sanctified in them.

Lonely : David did not go to battle field. Fell into the sin of adultery with Bathsheba.
Also when Eve was alone in the garden, the devil tempted her.

2Sa 11:1 — 2Sa 11:5  And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem. And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king’s house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon. And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite? And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house. And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.

Tired: The children of Israel got  tired on the way and spoke against God. They were bitten by fiery serpents.

Num 21:4 — Num 21:6  And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.

But then,  beloved, you can overcome, if you choose to respond rightly to the questions from satan, like our Lord Jesus Christ.

Mat 4:3 — Mat 4:11  And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 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. Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

Please place right premium on your undying soul and keep yourself.

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.

Isa 33:15 — Isa 33:17   He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;  He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.  Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

Our Lord shall continually provide you with necessary support unto the end.

Hebrews 2:18  For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

Heb 4:14 — Heb 4:16  Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Beloved, see how the Rechabites overcame and you too shall overcome and live with God in heaven in Jesus name. His grace shall be sufficient for you in particular in Jesus name.

Jer 35:1 — Jer 35:10  The word which came unto Jeremiah from the Lord in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying, Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into the house of the Lord, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink. Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites; And I brought them into the house of the Lord, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the chamber of the princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the door: And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them, Drink ye wine. But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever: Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live many days in the land where ye be strangers. Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that he hath charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters; Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard, nor field, nor seed: But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us.

Beloved the Bible reveals one  all important attribute of your loving Father in heaven that you must embrace as a lifestyle. See it.

1Jo 1:5 — 1Jo 1:7  This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 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.

In the same token, just like your loving Father in heaven is light. Jesus Christ our Lord and savior, Himself is the light personified.

John 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Jn 9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Jn 12:46  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness

Because believers of all ages and you in particular are sons of God, you are referred to as light in the world. A light that must be shinning for others to see.

Mat 5:14 — Mat 5:16 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Philippians 2:15  That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

Beloved, your full understanding of the above statements will help you to appreciate and embrace the wisdom of God in dividing the light from darkness, right from the outset.

Gen 1:3 — Gen 1:4  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

The Bible God’s written wisdom in print , says what God hath joined together, let no man put asunder.
In the same token however, what God hath put asunder, let no man join together.
God by His wisdom from the very  outset, divided the light from darkness.

Gen 1:3 — Gen 1:4  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

What does this mean?
It means sons of God that are children of the light must as s matter of compulsion, be separated from the worldings,  unbelievers, that are children  of disobedience and unfruitful works of darkness.
Beloved, the Bible refers to believers as the children of light and peculiar people. See it yourself.

1Th 5:5  Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

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

2Co 4:6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Exo 19:5 — Exo 19:6  Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

1 Peter 2:9  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

In addition they are people who have received the gospel and have turned from darkness to light.

Act 26:18  To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Beloved, I am persuaded you have turned from darkness to light. This alone is what makes you a biblical believer.
In the same token, the worldlings and unbelievers are described as children of disobedience and  wrath. unfruitful works of darkness.
The Bible says their eyes are full of adultery, cursed children and are lost.. See them.

Eph 2:1 — Eph 2:3  And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

Eph 5:11 — Eph 5:12  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

Ephesians 2:3  Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

Ephesians 5:6   Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

2Pe 2:14 — 2Pe 2:18  Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

2Co 4:3 — 2Co 4:4  But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Please be very sober and sincerely help yourself. Does your life has any resemblance of any of these?
I am persuaded that you should not.  But if you are. Please repent immediately. Any of these things in your life position you as a worldlings and unbeliever before God.
May the Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
Beloved  as far back  from  the old testament, God has been calling the saints to be separated from sinners.  He has been calling believers to be separated from unbelievers.  See it yourself.

Isaiah 2:5  O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.

Isa 52:11  Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing;go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.

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:

But then it is reinforced strongly in the new restaurant in divers biblical languages. See them.

2Co 6:14 — 2Co 6:18  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? 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.

Eph 5:11 — Eph 5:12  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

1Co 5:9 — 1Co 5:11  I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

James 1:27  Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world

James 4:4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Rom 12:1 — Rom 12:2  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

1Jo 2:15 — 1Jo 2:17  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Rom 16:17 — Rom 16:18  Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

2Jo 1:8 — 2Jo 1:11  Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Eph 4:17 — Eph 4:24  This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Beloved, the Bible reveals the essence of this call to separation, because of the negative influence , associating with the worldings might have on the believers. See some of them.
1. Turn you away from God.

Deu 7:1 — Deu 7:4  When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.

2.  Make you loose your savour, your priced spiritual virtues and nature.

Mat 5:13   Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Beloved, the Bible reveals that God does not want you in particular to learn the ways of the unbelievers.

Deu 18:9  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.

Jeremiah 10:2  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.

The Bible also reveals that unbelievers among your family members and those outside shall hate you and even be fighting you.
When you experience this hostility, don’t be surprised. It is the common lots of biblical believers.

Jn 3:19 — Jn 3:21  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Jn 17:14 — Jn 17:16   I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

Jn 15:18 — Jn 15:19  If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

Beloved, see the testimony of our Lord Jesus Christ on John the Baptist.

John 5:35  He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

If our Lord shall testify of you too. What will He say?  Would He place you in the  categories of a biblical believer or unbeliever?
Remember any vice or nature of a unbeliever in your life disqualifies you from heaven. So deal with such vices now.

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.

Beloved,  it is very important you have the right attitude to God our  loving  Father in heaven.
He Himself  commanded that you should fear Him.

Jeremiah 5:22  Fear ye not me? saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?

Our Lord Jesus Christ, Himself admonished all His followers, especially you to fear God His Father.

Luke 12:5  But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

The reason for this is because whatever God said ,He would do, shall be done according to His words in the Bible.

Isa 46:10 — Isa 46:11  Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it

  Beloved, God revealed Himself to you through His unfailing and unchanging eternal words in the Bible.
Never ever forget. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but the word of God in the Bible shall never ever pass away.  It shall be fulfilled and accomplish it’s purposes.

Isaiah 34:16  Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.

Isa 55:10 — Isa 55:11  For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Mat 24:34 — Mat 24:35  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Beloved, your Father in heaven is reputed for doing exactly what He said, He would do.
In the time past, He said a virgin shall conceive without meeting with any man. He did it in its season.

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign;

Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel

Mat 1:22 — Mat 1:23  Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

God at another time said, He would destroyed the whole world with flood. Even though it took one hundred and twenty years before it happened. But it was done.

Gen 7:17 — Gen 7:23  And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth. And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered. And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died. And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

God said He would rain fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed Sodom. It was mocked. But God did it.

Gen 19:24 — Gen 19:25   Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

God told Moses, He would feed the entire people of Israel with flesh for a whole month in the wilderness. Moses the man of God find it difficult to believe. But God did what He said.

Num 11:18 — Num 11:23  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.

Num 11:31 — Num 11:33  And there went forth a wind from the Lord, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day’s journey on this side, and as it were a day’s journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the earth. And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the camp. And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the Lord was kindled against the people, and the Lord smote the people with a very great plague.

Beloved, why are we delving into the feats of what our Father in heaven had done in the time  past?
It is because of the untoward attitude of multitude of nominal churchgoers globally. Todays so called believers felt , they could set aside God’s unfailing words and placate Him with worship and offerings and please  Him.
Very unfortunately, they shall be abysmally disappointed.
This is because, the Bible says, God magnifies His unfailing words above His name or worship that lacks obedience.

Psalms 119:89 For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.

Psalms 138:2  I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

In addition, the Bible says God will reject any sacrifice or offerings that lack obedience.

1Sa 15:22 — 1Sa 15:23 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 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.

Beloved, the Bible further describes today’s believers as religious reprobates , having form of godliness in religious activities but lack the power thereof.

Titus 1:16  They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

2Ti 3:1 — 2Ti 3:5  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.

 Beloved, pause a little and sincerely examine yourself. Do you too, fall into  these  categories?

2 Corinthians 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?

I am persuaded you are not, but should in case you are. Repent immediately. This is because the consequence  of this attitude is fearsome.
True believers and followers of Jesus must have right attitude towards the word of God in the Bible.
See what should characterise your lifestyle as a Bible believing Christian.

Job 23:12  Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips;

I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.

Psa 119:9 — Psa 119:11 – Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way?by taking heed thereto according to thy word.  With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Psalms 119:60  I made haste, and delayed not  to keep thy commandments.

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.

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.

Exodus 24:7  And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient.

Receive grace to joyfully be doing this, like Bible days believers in Jesus name.
It is very sad and painful that innumerable numbers of ministers and so called believers are trouping into hell daily because of their wrong attitude towards the word of God in the Bible. See what Jesus said.

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

Mat 7:21 — Mat 7:23  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

It will also be very sad and painful that multitudes of believers that must exclude you shall continue to troupe into hell till the end of time and shall miss the dawning rapture,  because of their refusal to be obedient to God’s word in the Bible.
Because you are preparing for the dawning rapture and God shall help you to partake in it, be obedient totally to the following words as revealed by the Bible.

Psalms 9:17  The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

Exodus 32:33  And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

Revelation 3:5  He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

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

Ecc 12:13 — Ecc 12:14  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Hebrews 12:14  Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

Heb 10:26 — Heb 10:31  For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Heb 10:35 — Heb 10:39  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.

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.

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.

Proverbs 8:17  I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

1Sa 2:30  Wherefore the Lord God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the Lord saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

Isa 59:1 — Isa 59:2  Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:  But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Mal 3:16 — Mal 3:18  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.

1Th 4:15 — 1Th 4:18  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Eph 5:25 — Eph 5:27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

1Pe 4:17 — 1Pe 4:18  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

Romans 6:23  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

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.

1Ti 2:3 — 1Ti 2:4  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.

John 6:37  All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

Ezekiel 18:20  The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

Ezekiel 18:4  Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

Ezk 18:30 — Ezk 18:32  Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin. Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

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?

Mal 2:14 — Mal 2:16  Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth. For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the Lord of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.

Mat 19:3 — Mat 19:9  The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Mar 10:10 — Mar 10:12  And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter. And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

Isa 33:15 — Isa 33:17  He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

Ecclesiastes 3:15  That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

Lev 6:1 — Lev 6:5  And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the Lord, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour; Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein: Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found, Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.

Mat 5:23 — Mat 5:24  Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

Acts 24:16  And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.

Mar 9:43 — Mar 9:48  And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Mat 7:13 — Mat 7:14  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Mat 7:21 — Mat 7:23  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Mat 11:28 — Mat 11:30  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. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Jn 14:1 — Jn 14:3  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Rev 21:1 — Rev 21:7  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Rev 19:4 — Rev 19:9  And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia. And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

2Co 4:17 — 2Co 5:1  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.

2Pe 3:10 — 2Pe 3:14  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 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. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

1Co 6:9 — 1Co 6:10  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Isaiah 33:14  The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

Hab 2:2 — Hab 2:3  And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie:  though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Jer 18:7 — Jer 18:10  At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.

Num 23:19 — Num 23:20  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? Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.

Isaiah 46:11  Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

Matthew 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Rev 7:14  And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Act 1:9 — Act 1:11  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.

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.

Jeremiah 5:25  Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.

Beloved, remember, God’s unfailing and unchanging eternal words in the Bible shall do exactly what it says.

Isaiah 34:16  Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.

Isa 55:10 — Isa 55:11  For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Mat 24:34 — Mat 24:35  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Also be mindful of the fact that God will do exactly to anyone and everyone and that includes you, what He said in His words.

Isa 46:10 — Isa 46:11  Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it

Your unbelief of His words will not change what His words says shall happen to the disobedient.

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

Beloved, it very important that you give attention to everything that makes reference to the beginning.
See some of them.

Ecc 7:8  Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.

Isa 46:10  Declaring the end from the beginning,and from ancient times the things that are not yet done,saying, My counsel shall stand,and I will do all my pleasure

Isa 64:4  For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear,neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee,what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

Mat 24:4 — Mat 24:8  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Act 15:18  Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

Psa 111:10  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom:a good understanding have all they that do his commandments:his praise endureth for ever.

Psa 119:160  Thy word is true from the beginning:and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

Pro 1:7  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge:but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Mat 19:3 — Mat 19:8  The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

1Pe 4:17 — 1Pe 4:18  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

Heb 3:14  For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

1Jo 3:8  He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the works of the devil.

I celebrate our Father in heaven who in His providence has made you a very wise person.

Pro 9:12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself:but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

But then if you are going to affirm this biblical wiseness by yourself, it will reflects in your daily preparations to meet with God, which might be sooner than you think.

Amo 4:12 Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel:and because I will do this unto thee,prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.

You will determinedly and conscientiously be working on the eternity you desire.

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

Proverbs 19:20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

Beloved, there are two eternal ends. You and not God will determine your choice.

Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

I am persuaded of you that you choice is eternal bliss. Because this is so, you have to work on it determinedly and conscientiously.

It has never been and it will never be something attained automatically, but it is always conscientiously work towards.

What then must you be doing, if you want to culminating your sojourn on earth in eternal bliss?

In the days of old, there was a common parlance that all roads led to Rome. But then not all roads leads to heaven.

If you are interested in heaven, there is only one road.

Mat 7:13 — Mat 7:14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Isa 35:8 — Isa 35:9 And an highway shall be there, and a way,
and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

After entering that road, everything you do thereafter, must be done from the perspective of eternity.

Col 3:1 — Col 3:4 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.

Beloved, as a sincere wise person. Pause here and without any iota of presumption. Examine yourself, have you entered this singular road that leads to glory? If you are, are you still walking on this road?

Scriptures abound of innumerable numbers of people, who walked there and ultimately lost out. You shall not in Jesus name.

Mat 7:21 — Mat 7:23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Beloved, you might be surrounded by scoffers who shamefully trivialize the reality of the dawning rapture.

2Pe 3:3 — 2Pe 3:4 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

The imminence of the rapture with teach them painful lessons when it eventually happens.

1Co 15:51 — 1Co 15:52 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Perhaps it might be you are one of such people. I am persuaded are not and you shall not be In Jesus name.

But then, let’s ever set aside the issue of the rapture, temporarily. Day after day something happens globally and always reported in the news. It is called death.

You have never seen anyone globally who are thinking about it, until it gets to them. See what the Bible says.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Psa 49:10 — Psa 49:12 For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others. Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever,
and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names. Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not:
he is like the beasts that perish.

Let’s leave every other person out of this. Let’s talk about you. Do you know that death is closer to you more than the distance between your bedroom and your toilet?

1Sa 20:3 And David sware moreover, and said, Thy father certainly knoweth that I have found grace in thine eyes; and he saith, Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved: but truly as the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, there is but a step between me and death.

I wish you in particular long life and prosperity. It shall be so in Jesus name.

But then, suppose you, I am taking about you. Suppose you die now. Where will you spend eternity?

You know I have not come out of the pains , my brethren at Gombe, suffered this last January at the hands of Boko Haram. They were killed in the midst of service.

Our Father in heaven is sovereign and unquestionable. Wisdom demands that you should learn lessons from the misfortunes of others.

Suppose, you are one of the victims or suppose same thing happen to you. Where will you spend eternity?

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

Proverbs 19:20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

It is for this reason that the blessed Holy Spirit, is sharing with you in particular, biblical preparations for the beginning of the end.

The journey to the land of the dead has a begining, but has no end. It is forever and ever. If this is the issue, then why are you leaving your life as if, it doesn’t matter?

Let us look at the lives of these two people.

Luk 16:19 — Luk 16:25 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented

Beloved, those two people have been in the place of death before our Lord came to undertake His earthly ministry.

One is in comfort, the other in torment. I pray yours too shall be comfort. But then it takes more than amen to make it happen. You need to work on it.

See example of those who work on it and attain it and follow their examples.

Heb 11:13 — Heb 11:16 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

Beloved, rapture is dawning, death is looming.. You as a matter of compulsion must be preparing for either of both. Rapture or glory. May the Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

2Pe 3:10 — 2Pe 3:14 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 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. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

Rev 22:11 — Rev 22:15 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional  –  Revelation 3:14-22  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; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Beloved, glory and honor to the great God in heaven. Our Father and the very Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jn 20:17  Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

He alone giveth power and enabling grace to us to do all things and complete them.

Phi 2:13  For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

In the same way , He saw us through to finish the study of the entire book of Revelation, the other time. So He has also helped us to finish the deep study of the seven churches.
Like Daniel of old, we give Him alone all the glory for this great feat.  This is our heartfelt doxology for this gracious and eternal defining revelations.

Dan 2:19 — Dan 2:23  Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven. Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:  And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:  He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers,who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.

Beloved, the study of the seventh church, deserve your utmost attention.
This is because, it is  the last and worst of all the seven Asian churches.
It is, the reverse of the church of Philadelphia for, as there was nothing reproved in that, here was nothing commended in this.
Yet,  because of the providence of our gracious Redeemer and Lord,
It  was  still counted among  the seven golden candlesticks, for a corrupt church may still be a church. See it.

Rev 3:14 — Rev 3:16   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; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

There is a great lesson to be learnt from this church. It affirms in deed the long-suffering of our gracious and loving Father in heaven, who has no pleasure in the death of the wicked.
How does this affects you? It doesn’t matter how far anyone has gone astray like the prodigal son or the malefactor crucified with our Lord. There is still room for time bound repentance.

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.

Romans 2:4  Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

Beloved, recount these messages were sent to seven selected Asian churches then, to reveal to them, there spiritual standing and for them to make appropriate timely  corrections that could guarantee their eternal well-being.

Revelation 1:11  Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

However, in addition  our loving and gracious Lord, also had it in mind to extend same to His universal churches and you in particular, to help you prepare adequately for the imminent rapture or glory.
This informs why seven churches were selected. Meaning, totality, finality,, completeness  and perfection.

Rev 1:19 — Rev 1:20  Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

 This was the reason every message ended with he or she that hath an ear , should heat what the blessed Holy Spirit was saying to the churches, especially you.

Revelation 3:6  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 3:13  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 3:22  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Beloved, you must distinguished your self as a wise virgin. Take utmost advantage of these messages to prepare you for the dawning rapture or sudden glory.
You are familiar with global news. Daily it is reported of numerous mysterious deaths.
From my heart of hearts, I wish you in particular long life. But then, pause, supposing these jihadist or something else happen and you die.  Where will you spend eternity?
See these messages are time bound. Take advantage of them, like the wise virgin.  You must not and you shall not be part of the great tribulation or eternity in hell in Jesus name.

Revelation 1:1  The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

Revelation 1:3  Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

Rev 22:9 — Rev 22:11 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

Beloved, remember you are the church bought with the precious blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and savior, that these messages are sent to .
Beside this, you are the  angel through which our Lord Jesus Christ will reach the unsaved among the people in  your world o influence. May the Lord depend on you in particular in Jesus name.

Acts 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Revelation 22:16  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

Beloved, keep in mind the reason and the goal for you to undertake the study of these seven churches.
It is to help you secure your most deserved seat among the twenty four elders around the throne of God.
These elders in the book of Revelation symbolizes the raptured church.
Those who were redeemed with the blood of Jesus on this side of heaven . See it yourself.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:4  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

Rev 19:6 — Rev 19:9 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Beloved,   let us study I details this last church.

Rev 3:14 — Rev 3:22  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; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
As usual the message was sent to the angel of the church.

Rev 3:14 — Rev 3:16   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; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

What do you know about angels. You need to know, to help you fit in as the leader of your world of influence.  See what the Bible says about the angels of God.

Rev 14:6 — Rev 14:7  And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

The angels of God are faithful in discharging commissioned errands.  The angel above was preaching the gospel to the entire inhabitants of the earth, during the great tribulation.
Like the angel, you also have been commissioned by Christ to preach the gospel to be lost world.

Mark 16:15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Along side this commission, Jesus commanded that you should preach the total gospel.

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.

How faithful are you to this heavenly mandate? Are teaching to a congregation with itching ears who only wants to hear  only those things that are suitable to them.

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. For 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.

Are you preaching the total Bible or you are adding your own and removing the substance?  See what the Bible says.

Deuteronomy 4:2  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.

Rev 22:18 — Rev 22:19  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.

You are aware of the implication of not teaching the entirety of the word of God.

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

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.

See Paul taught the entirety of the word of God.

Acts 20:27  For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

He commanded Timothy to do same. May the Lord depend on you to be a faithful angel in Jesus name.

1 Timothy 4:16  Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

Now let us come back to this last and the worst church.
How was this church established?
The church perhaps must have been founded by  Epaphras.  Why did we say so? See the writing of Paul.

Col 4:12 — Col 4:13  Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God. For I bear him record, that he hath a great zeal for you, and them that are in Laodicea, and them in Hierapolis.

Now after establishing it, He informed Paul about the Judaizers who wanted to corrupt the church, with false doctrines..

Colossians 2:4  And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.

Colossians 2:8  Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Colossians 1:8  Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.

This was how apostle Paul got to know about the church and started praying for them and sending them epistle.

Colossians 2:1  For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;

Colossians 4:16  And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.

The bishop of the church was also discovered through the writing of apostle Paul. See it.

Philemon 1:2  And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:

Col 4:16 — Col 4:17  And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea. And say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it.

The name of the bishop the son of the wealth Apphia.
Unfortunately, the bishop did not live to expectations, which resulted in the decadence of the church.
 By the time Christ sent this message, tge spiritual estate had gone bad.
This church was  the last and worst of all the seven Asian churches,.
 
The  reverse of the church of Philadelphia for, as there was nothing reproved in that, here was nothing commended in this,. See it again.
 

Rev 3:14 — Rev 3:16   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; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

 See how  our Lord Jesus styles himself the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God .
 

Revelation 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;

 The Amen, one that is steady and unchangeable in all his purposes and promises, which are all yea, and all amen .
 The faithful and true witness, whose testimony of God to men ought to be received and fully believed, and whose testimony of men to God will be fully believed and regarded, and will be a swift but true witness against all indifferent lukewarm professors.
 The beginning of the creation of God, either of the first creation, and so he is the beginning, that is, the first cause, the Creator, and the Governor of it.

Jn 1:1 — Jn 1:3  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. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Col 1:16 — Col 1:17  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Hebrews 1:2  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;

 He   is  the head of that body, the first-born from the dead.
Christ, having raised up himself by his own divine power, as the head of a new world, raises up dead souls to be a living temple and church to himself

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,

The subject-matter, in which observe,
 The heavy charge drawn up against this church, ministers and people, by one who knew them better than they knew themselves: 
 
Thou art neither cold nor hot, but worse than either I would thou wert cold or hot
 

Rev 3:15 — Rev 3:16.   I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

 Lukewarmness or indifference in religion is the worst temper in the world.
 If religion is a real thing, it is the most excellent thing, and therefore we should be in good earnest in it if it is not a real thing, it is the vilest imposture, and we should be earnest against it. 
If religion is worth any thing, it is worth every thing an indifference here is inexcusable: Why halt you between two opinions? If God be God, follow him if Baal (be God), follow him.
 Here is no room for neutrality. An open enemy shall have a fairer quarter than a perfidious neuter and there is more hope of a heathen than of such. 
Christ expects that men should declare themselves in earnest either for him or against him.
 
This church has a name that they are life but dead.  They have lost their first love.  They are dearly lukewarm.
 

Revelation 3:1  And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

Revelation 2:4  Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

Beloved, how about you?  Are you living a false life ?  A life of hypocrisy?   Are you a James in the church and Judas  outside.  Are you a Janet inside the church and Jezebel outside?   Where do you belong?  Examine yourself.

Job 13:16   He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.

Isaiah 33:14  The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

Hosea 10:2  Their heart is divided; now shall they be found faulty: he shall break down their altars, he shall spoil their images.

Hosea 4:17  Ephraim is joined to idols:  let him alone.

Hosea 7:9  Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there u

Please amend your ways before it is too late. Don’t fall a victim of what happened to Gehazi  or  Judas. It shall never be your portion in Jesus name.  See what Jesus was up to do.

Rev 3:15 — Rev 3:16.   I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

 A severe punishment threatened: I will spue thee out of my mouth. As lukewarm water turns the stomach, and provokes to a vomit, lukewarm professors turn the heart of Christ against them.
 
 He is sick of them, and cannot long bear them. They may call their lukewarmness charity, meekness, moderation, and a largeness of soul it is nauseous to Christ, and makes those so that allow themselves in it. 
They shall be rejected, and finally rejected for far be it from the holy Jesus to return to that which has been thus rejected 
We have one cause of this indifference and inconsistency in religion assigned, and that is self-conceitedness or self-delusion.

Proverbs 14:14  The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.

They thought they were very well already, and therefore they were very indifferent whether they grew better or no
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods

Revelation 3:17   Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

 Here observe, What a difference there was between the thoughts they had of themselves and the thoughts that Christ had of them
The high thoughts they had of themselves: Thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing, rich, and growing richer, and increased to such a degree as to be above all want or possibility of wanting.

Psalms 36:2  For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.

Perhaps they were well provided for as to their bodies, and this made them overlook the necessities of their souls.
 Or they thought themselves well furnished in their souls: they had learning, and they took it for religion they had gifts, and they took them for grace they had wit, and they took it for true wisdom they had ordinances, and they took up with them instead of the God of ordinances.
How careful should we be not to put the cheat upon our own souls! Doubtless there are many in hell that once thought themselves to be in the way to heaven.
Let us daily beg of God that we may not be left to flatter and deceive ourselves in the concerns of our souls.
 The mean thoughts that Christ had of them and he was not mistaken. He knew, though they knew not, that they were wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.
Wretched
Their state was wretched in itself, and such as called for pity and compassion from others: though they were proud of themselves, they were pitied by all who knew their case.

Rom 7:19 — Rom 7:20  For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Romans 7:24  O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Miserable,

1 Corinthians 15:19  If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

Poor
For, They were poor, really poor, when they said and thought they were rich they had no provision for their souls to live upon their souls were starving in the midst of their abundance they were vastly in debt to the justice of God, and had nothing to pay off the least part of the debt

John 15:2  Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

John 15:6  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

Romans 1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Blind
They were blind they could not see their state, nor their way, nor their danger they could not see into themselves they could not look before them they were blind, and yet they thought they saw the very light that was in them was darkness, and then how great must that darkness be!
They could not see Christ, though evidently set forth, and crucified, before their eyes. They could not see God by faith, though always present in them. They could not see death, though it was just before them. They could not look into eternity, though they stood upon the very brink of it continually .

Matthew 15:14  Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

2Pe 1:5 — 2Pe 1:9  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.

1 John 2:11  But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

Naked
They were naked, without clothing and without house and harbour for their souls. They were without clothing, had neither the garment of justification nor that of sanctification.
 Their nakedness both of guilt and pollution had no covering. They lay always exposed to sin and shame. Their righteousnesses were but filthy rags they were rags, and would not cover them, filthy rags, and would defile them.
And they were naked, without house or harbour, for they were without God, and he has been the dwelling-place of his people in all ages in him alone the soul of man can find rest, and safety, and all suitable accommodations.
The riches of the body will not enrich the soul the sight of the body will not enlighten the soul the most convenient house for the body will not afford rest nor safety to the soul.
The soul is a different thing from the body, and must have accommodation suitable to its nature, or else in the midst of bodily prosperity it will be wretched and miserable

Isaiah 61:10  I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

Counsel from Christ.
 
We have good counsel given by Christ to this sinful people, and that is that they drop their vain and false opinion they had of themselves, and endeavour to be that really which they would seem to be: I counsel thee to buy of me,

Revelation 3:18  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Jesus Christ continues to give good counsel to those who have cast his counsels behind their backs
The condition of sinners in never desperate, while they enjoy the gracious calls and counsels of Christ
Our blessed Lord, the counsellor, always gives the best advice, and that which is most suitable to the sinner’s case as here,

Gold

These people were poor Christ counsels them to buy of him gold tried in the fire, that they might be rich.
He lets them know where they might have true riches and how they might have them. First, Where they might have them–from himself he sends them not to the streams of Pactolus, nor to the mines of Potosi, but invites them to himself, the pearl of price.

1 Peter 1:7  That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

Secondly, And how must they have this true gold from him? They must buy it.
This seems to be unsaying all again. How can those that are poor buy gold? Just as they may buy of Christ wine and milk, that is, without money and without price,
Something indeed must be parted with, but it is nothing of a valuable consideration, it is only to make room for receiving true riches “Part with sin and self-sufficiency, and come to Christ with a sense of your poverty and emptiness, that you may be filled with his hidden treasure

Isaiah 55:1  Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money

Eph 3:8 — Eph 3:9  Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: and without price.

White  Rainet.
These people were naked Christ tells them where they might have clothing, and such as would cover the shame of their nakedness.
This they must receive from Christ and they must only put off their filthy rags that they might put on the white raiment which he had purchased and provided for them–his own imputed righteousness for justification and the garments of holiness and sanctification

Psalms 132:9  Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.

Psalms 132:16  I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

Rev 19:7 — Rev 19:8  Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Eye save
They were blind and he counsels them to buy of him eye-salve, that they might see, to give up their own wisdom and reason, which are but blindness in the things of God, and resign themselves to his word and Spirit, and their eyes shall be opened to see their way and their end, their duty and their true interest a new and glorious scene would then open itself to their souls a new world furnished with the most beautiful and excellent objects, and this light would be marvellous to those who were but just now delivered from the powers of darkness.
This is the wise and good counsel Christ gives to careless souls and, if they follow it, he will judge himself bound in honour to make it effectual

Proverbs 23:23  Buy the truth, and sell it not;  also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

Proverbs 23:26  My son, give me thine heart,  and let thine eyes observe my ways

Ephesians 1:18  The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

Here is added great and gracious encouragement to this sinful people to take the admonition and advice well that Christ had given them,

Rev 3:19 — Rev 3:20  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

He tells them,
It was given them in true and tender affection: “Whom I love, I rebuke and chasten.
You may think I have given you hard words and severe reproofs it is all out of love to your souls. I would not have thus openly rebuked and corrected your sinful lukewarmness and vain confidence,
if I had not been a lover of your souls had I hated you, I would have let you alone, to go on in sin till it had been your ruin”
Sinners ought to take the rebukes of God’s word and rod as tokens of his good-will to their souls, and should accordingly repent in good earnest, and turn to him that smites them better are the frowns and wounds of a friend than the flattering smiles of an enemy

Pro 3:11 — Pro 3:12  My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord;  neither be weary of his correction: For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Heb 12:5 — Heb 12:11  And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

If they would comply with his admonitions, he was ready to make them good to their souls: Behold, I stand at the door and knock,
Here observe, Christ is graciously pleased by his word and Spirit to come to the door of the heart of sinners he draws near to them in a way of mercy, ready to make them a kind visit
 He finds this door shut against him the heart of man is by nature shut up against Christ by ignorance, unbelief, sinful prejudices
 When he finds the heart shut, he does not immediately withdraw, but he waits to be gracious, even till his head be filled with the dew
He uses all proper means to awaken sinners, and to cause them to open to him: he calls by his word, he knocks by the impulses of his Spirit upon their conscience
 Those who open to him shall enjoy his presence, to their great comfort and advantage.
He will sup with them he will accept of what is good in them he will eat his pleasant fruit and he will bring the best part of the entertainment with him. If what he finds would make but a poor feast, what he brings will make up the deficiency: he will give fresh supplies of graces and comforts, and thereby stir up fresh actings of faith, and love, and delight and in all this Christ and his repenting people will enjoy pleasant communion with each other.
Alas! what do careless obstinate sinners lose by refusing to open the door of the heart to Christ!

Acts 3:19  Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

2 Chronicles 7:14  If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

2Co 7:10  For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

 We now come to the conclusion of this epistle and here we have as before,
The promise made to the overcoming believer. It is here implied,

Rev 3:21 — Rev 3:22   To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
 That though this church seemed to be wholly overrun and overcome with lukewarmness and self-confidence, yet it was possible that by the reproofs and counsels of Christ they might be inspired with fresh zeal and vigour, and might come off conquerors in their spiritual warfare
 That, if they did so, all former faults should be forgiven, and they should have a great reward. And what is that reward?
 They shall sit down with me on my throne, as I also overcame, and have sat down with my Father on his throne,
That Christ himself had met with his temptations and conflicts
 That he overcame them all, and was more than a conqueror
That, as the reward of his conflict and victory, he has sat down with God the Father on his throne, possessed of that glory which he had with the Father from eternity, but which he was pleased very much to conceal on earth, leaving it as it were in the hands of the Father, as a pledge that he would fulfil the work of a Saviour before he reassumed that manifestative glory and, having done so, he demands the pledge, to appear in his divine glory equal to the Fathe
That those who are conformed to Christ in his trials and victories shall be conformed to him in his glory they shall sit down with him on his throne, on his throne of judgment at the end of the world, on his throne of glory to all eternity, shining in his beams by virtue of their union with him and relation to him, as the mystical body of which he is the head
All is closed up with the general demand of attention  putting all to whom these epistles shall come in mind that what is contained in them is not of private interpretation, not intended for the instruction, reproof, and correction of those particular churches only, but of all the churches of Christ in all ages and parts of the world: and as there will be a resemblance in all succeeding churches to these, both in their graces and sins, so they may expect that God will deal with them as he dealt with these, which are patterns to all ages
What faithful, and fruitful churches may expect to receive from God, and what those who are unfaithful may expect to suffer from his hand yea, that God’s dealings with his churches may afford useful instruction to the rest of the world, to put them upon considering,

If judgment begin at the house of God, what shall the end of those be that do not obey the gospel of Christ? 1 Peter 4:17.

Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional  –  Revelation 3:7-13  And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Beloved, we have now come to the sixth letter, sent to one of the seven selected Asian churches. . See it.

Revelation 1:11  Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

Even though the message was sent to them specially. It was also meant for you in particular, redeemed  with the precious blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and savior.

Acts 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Revelation 22:16  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

Also because seven churches were selected for a purpose. As you are aware, seven means totality,  finality, completeness, and  perfection.

Revelation 1:20  The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches

The message was for the entire universal church of Christ, till the end of time, that shall culminate I’m the dawning rapture.  It shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name.
It was for this, that made all the messages to end with, he or she that hath an ear. Praise God your own eat and heart had been opened by the Lord. Glory to His holy name.

Revelation 3:6  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 3:13  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 3:22  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches

Beloved, no doubt you know the urgency to be attached to these messages. This is because of its imminence. It could happen before the close of today. It shall meet you prepared in Jesus name.

Revelation 1:1.  The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

Revelation 1:3  Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

Rev 22:10 — Rev 22:11 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

  Beloved, once again you are aware of the worthwhile goal before you in particular.
You are set to be enlisted among the twenty four elders, who are the representatives of the raptured saints. God willing, you shall be one of them in Jesus name.

Rev 4:1 — Rev 4:4  After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

Rev 5:6 — Rev 5:10  And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

By the special grace of God, we shall be there together in Jesus name.
Beloved,  remember what we discovered about this sixth church. See it again.

Rev 3:7 — Rev 3:8  And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

This was  another church worthy of emulation, like Symna.
Our Lord had nothing to correct but exhorted them to persevere to the end.
You must aspire with all your strength henceforth to be like this church. They were faultless and blameless..
It was possible for them by the grace of God. It shall be possible for you too in Jesus name.

Rev 14:4 — Rev 14:5  These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

You are aware this glorious church not graceless, is what Jesus our Lord is coming for.

Eph 5:25 — Eph 5:27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

 Let us know study the details of this church properly. So that you can learn lessons from their fidelity.

Rev 3:7 — Rev 3:13  And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 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. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Beloved, this was another church like the one at Symna that our Lord had nothing to correct , but to commend and exhort. Hence , His comforting introduction.
Firstly, message was sent to the angel of the church. You are aware, you are doubling as both the church and angel of your world of influence.

Revelation 3:1  And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

What do you know about angels?
They are holy. See it.

Mat 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:

Mark 8:38  Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

The angels of God are holy and blameless.
This must be your goal as a member of Christ Church and leader in your world of influence.
You must be unashamedly holy. Biblical holiness that is faultless. See what the Bible says.

1 Thessalonians 2:10  Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:

1Th 4:3 — 1Th 4:4  For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

1 Thessalonians 4:7  For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

1 Thessalonians 5:23  And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 12:14  Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

1Pe 1:14 — 1Pe 1:16  As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Luk 1:74 — Luk 1:75  That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies  might serve him without fear,  In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.

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.

Eph 5:25 — Eph 5:27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

2Pe 3:11 — 2Pe 3:14  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. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

By whom this letter was signed even by the same Jesus who is alone the universal head of all the churches and here observe by what title he chooses to represent himself to this church:.
 
 He that is holy, he that is true.
He that hath the key of David.
He that openeth, and none shall shut, and shutteth, and none openeth

Revelation 3:7  And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

Revelation 6:10  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

You have his personal character: He that is holy and he that is true, holy in his nature, and therefore he cannot but be true to his word, for he hath spoken in his holiness .
 
Also  his political character: He hath the key of David, he openeth, and no man shutteth he hath the key of the house of David, the key of government and authority in and over the church.
 
He opens. He opens a door of opportunity to his churches he opens a door of utterance to his ministers he opens a door of entrance, opens the heart .
 
He  opens a door of admission into the visible church, laying down the terms of communion and he opens the door of admission into the church triumphant, according to the terms of salvation fixed by him.
In addition. He shuts the door. 
 
When he pleases, he shuts the door of opportunity and the door of utterance, and leaves obstinate sinners shut up in the hardness of their hearts.
He  shuts the door of church-fellowship against unbelievers and profane persons and he shuts the door of heaven against the foolish virgins who have slept away their day of grace, and against the workers of iniquity, how vain and confident soever they may be.

Revelation 1:18  I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Isa 22:20 — Isa 22:22  And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:  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.

 
Both the key of knowledge and that of the kingdom, Christ has given to the church..

Matthew 16:18  And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Luk 11:52  Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

The Church may open where Christ will shut, and shut where Christ will open. He alone openeth so that none shall strut, and shutteth so that none can open.
 

Revelation 3:8  I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

I know thy works. Once more Christ’s judgment is based upon intimate personal knowledge.
 
Jesus knew their works. He knows yours too.
 

Hebrews 4:13  Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Jer 23:23 — Jer 23:24  Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.

Remember, sooner than you think, all your works shall be made plain. 
What do you think God will discover?
 

Ecc 12:13 — Ecc 12:14  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Let’s come back to the church.
 
Christ puts them in mind of what he had done for them: I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it,
 
Because thou hast little power, and hast made a good use of that little, I have given thee an opportunity of which none shall deprive thee.
 
I have set it open, and kept it open, though there be many adversaries.
 
This refers to doors of opportunities to preach the gospel.
 
And also  utrances for His ministers.
 

Acts 14:27 And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.

1 Corinthians 16:9  For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.

2 Corinthians 2:12  Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,

Colossians 4:3  Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:

 Christ is to be acknowledged as the author of all the liberty and opportunity his churches enjoy
He takes notice and keeps account, how long he has preserved their spiritual liberties and privileges for them.
Wicked men envy the people of God their door of liberty, and would be glad to shut it against them .
If we do not provoke Christ to shut this door against us, men cannot do it.

Revelation 3:8  I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

If you too shall be obedient to Christ,to conscientiously reach out to the lost in your world of influence, He shall place an open door before you.

1 Corinthians 16:9  For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.

In addition,, the Philadelphian Church, in spite of its small advantages, whether in numbers or prosperity, kept Christ’s word when called upon to deny him; and for this it shall ever have the privilege of giving others an entrance into Christ’s fold.
This church is commended: Thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name,
Thou hast a little strength, a little grace, which, though it be not proportionate to the wide door of opportunity which I have opened to thee, yet is true grace, and has kept thee faithful”
True grace, though weak, has the divine approbation but, though Christ accepts a little strength, yet believers should not rest satisfied in a little, but should strive to grow in grace, to be strong in faith, giving glory to God.
True grace, though weak, will do more than the greatest gifts or highest degrees of common grace, for it will enable the Christian to keep the word of Christ, and not to deny his name.
 Obedience, fidelity, and a free confession of the name of Christ, are the fruits of true grace, and are pleasing to Christ as such.

Revelation 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.

The grace of God enabled this church to be obedient to God:s entire unfailing words. The same grace is available for you too.
Remember, Jesus said you must live by the entirety of His words.

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.

Rev 22:18 — Rev 22:19  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.

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:

Secondly.

Revelation 3:9  Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Revelation 2:9  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.

The Church of Smyrna was encouraged with a promise that their Jewish opponents should not be victorious over them. The Philadelphian Christians are told that they shall be victorious over their Jewish opponents
 
Those  who “say they are Jews, and they are not,” are Jews who refuse to believe in the Messiah and reject the Gospel. The only true Jews are those who accept the Christ. They are not, but do lie.
 

Isaiah 60:14  The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of the Lord,  The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

Isaiah 49:23  And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the Lord: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.

Christ would make this church’s enemies subject to her 
 
Those enemies are described to be such as said they were Jews, but lied in saying so–pretended to be the only and peculiar people of God, but were really the synagogue of Satan. 
 
Assemblies that worship God in spirit and in truth are the Israel of God .
 
Assemblies that either worship false gods, or the true God in a false manner, are the synagogues of Satan: though they may profess to be the only people of God, their profession is a lie 
 
Their subjection to the church is described: They shall worship at thy feet not pay a religious and divine honour to the church itself, nor to the ministry of it, but shall be convinced that they have been in the wrong, that this church is in the right and is beloved of Christ, 
They  shall desire to be taken into communion with her and that they may worship the same God after the same manner. 
 
How shall this great change be wrought? 
 
By the power of God upon the hearts of his enemies, and by signal discoveries of his peculiar favour to his church: 
 
They shall know that I have loved thee. Observe, First, The greatest honour and happiness any church can enjoy consist in the peculiar love and favour of Christ. 
 
Secondly, Christ can discover this his favour to his people in such a manner that their very enemies shall see it, and be forced to acknowledge it. 
 
Thirdly, This will, by the grace of Christ, soften the hearts of their enemies, and make them desirous to be admitted into communion with them.
 

Revelation 3:9  Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee

Revelation 2:11  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

Beloved, are there people mocking you today because of your rigid unbending adherence to God’s word?
Is a matter of time. God shall vindicate you in Jesus name.
Look at this testimony. It shall happen in your life in Jesus name.

Dan 3:28 — Dan 3:29  Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.

Thirdly.
 

Revelation 3:10  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.

Because thou didst keep the word of my patience, I also will keep thee.
 
Another instance of favor that Christ promises to this church is persevering grace in the most trying times 
 
And this as the reward of their past fidelity. To him that hath shall be given. Here observe, 
 
 The gospel of Christ is the word of his patience.
 
 It is the fruit of the patience of God to a sinful world it sets before men the exemplary patience of Christ in all his sufferings for men it calls those that receive it to the exercise of patience in conformity to Christ 
 
This gospel should be carefully kept by all that enjoy it they must keep up to the faith, and practice, and worship prescribed in the gospel
 
 After a day of patience we must expect an hour of temptation a day of gospel peace and liberty is a day of God’s patience, and it is seldom so well improved as it should be and therefore it is often followed by an hour of trial and temptation
 
 Sometimes the trial is more general and universal it comes upon all the world, and, when it is so general, it is usually the shorter

Luke 8:15  But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

Luke 21:19   In your patience possess ye your souls.

Matthew 10:22  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Matthew 24:13  But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Revelation 3:10  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.

Revelation 1:3  Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

Revelation 2:26  And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

Beloved be very patient. God shall fulfill His promises in your life in Jesus name.

Hebrews 6:12  That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 6:15  And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

Heb 10:35 — Heb 10:39  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.

keep, and ye shall be kept. “I know mine own, and mine own know me”
 
Those who keep the gospel in a time of peace shall be kept by Christ in an hour of temptation. By keeping the gospel they are prepared for the trial and the same divine grace that has made them fruitful in times of peace will make them faithful in times of persecution.
 

Revelation 3:10  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.

John 10:14  I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

John 17:15  I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

2 Thessalonians 3:3  But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

Forthly,

Revelation 3:11  Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Christ calls the church to that duty which he before promised he would enable her to do, and that is, to persevere, to hold fast that which she had
The duty itself: “Hold fast that which thou hast, that faith, that truth, that strength of grace, that zeal, that love to the brethren thou hast been possessed of this excellent treasure, hold it fast”
The motives, taken from the speedy appearance of Christ: “Behold, I come quickly. See, I am just a coming to relieve them under the trial, to reward their fidelity, and to punish those who fall away they shall lose that crown which they once seemed to have a right to, which they hoped for, and pleased themselves with the thoughts of.
The persevering Christian shall win the prize from backsliding professors, who once stood fair for it.”
Beloved, endeavor to hold on to the entirety of the scriptures that you have received, till Christ comes.

John 8:31  Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

Revelation 3:11  Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Revelation 22:7  Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

Revelation 22:11  He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

which is a promise. Here the declaration is one of encouragement to the Church—

Revelation 2:25  But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

Fifthly,
 

Revelation 3:12  Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

After his usual manner, our Saviour promises a glorious reward to the victorious believer, in two things
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar.
 
He shall be a monumental pillar in the temple of God not a pillar to support the temple (heaven needs no such props), but a monument of the free and powerful grace of God, a monument that shall never be defaced nor removed,.
On this monumental pillar there shall be an honourable inscription, as in those cases is usual 
 
The name of God, in whose cause he engaged, whom he served, and for whom he suffered in this warfare and the name of the city of God, the church of God, the new Jerusalem, which came down from heaven.
On this pillar shall be recorded all the services the believer did to the church of God, how he asserted her rights, enlarged her borders, maintained her purity and honour .
And then another part of the inscription is,  The new name of Christ, the Mediator, the Redeemer, the captain of our salvation by this it will appear under whose banner this conquering believer had enlisted, under whose conduct he acted, by whose example he was encouraged, and under whose influence he fought the good fight, and came off victorious.

Revelation 3:12  Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Revelation 2:26  And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

The “overcoming” is a present continuous process, but will have a termination, and then he who has faithfully fought the daily battle will be made a pillar, steadfast, immovable.
 

Revelation 3:13  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Beloved, you have overcome. This is because greater is he one in you than the one in the world.
Overcome satan , sin , self, flesh and the world.
 

1 John 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

1Jo 5:4 — 1Jo 5:5  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

1Jo 2:28 — 1Jo 2:29  And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

 
The epistle is closed up with the demand of attention: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches, how Christ loves and values his faithful people, how he commends, and how he will crown their fidelity

Revelation 2:7  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Certainly you have an ear and you have heard. See you at the top in Jesus name.
