KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional | September 30, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional – GRACE teaches us to live Uprightly and Godly in this present world.

Tit 2:12  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;

Beloved,  there was something great that God gave to the whole human race.  He gave  it through Jesus Christ,  His  only begotten Son.  It was called grace. GOD”S  RICHES,  RIGHTEOUSNESS,  REDEMPTION,  REGENERATION,  AT CHRIST ‘S  EXPENSE.
Riches,  righteousness,  redemption and regeneration,  all of these came from God at Christ ”s  expense.

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,  God gave this grace to make humanity to be blessed  and beautified here on earth and also to have a befitting  eternity with Him. Both these blessings shall be your portion in Jesus name. See it.

Psalms 84:11  For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

God chooses to be unusuallygracious  to His saints. He shall be unusually gracious to you in particular in Jesus name.

Exo 33:19  And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

Exo 34:6  And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

See some of these saints that received these graciousness of your Father in heaven.  He will do sane and more to  you too in Jesus name.
1. Noah . While God destroyed the whole first world with flood . Noah because of grace was spared. 

Gen 6:8Gen 6:9  But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

2. Joseph ,  though sold to slavery,  received  unusual grace for favour and fortune from the Lord. 

Gen 39:4Gen 39:5  And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand. And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the Lord was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.

Moses  received the kind of favor that none else before or after him received from the Lord.

Exo 33:12Exo 33:14  And Moses said unto the Lord, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight. Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people. And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

Exo 33:17Exo 33:23  And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name. And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory. And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. And the Lord said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by: And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.

Beloved ,  beyond what God did for these saints,  shall be done to you too  in Jesus name. This was because God had promised  to pour ceaseless  spirit of grace upon His saints.  Since you are one, reach out to Him in prayer and receive it.

Zechariah 12:10  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Dearly beloved,  grace,  God”s gracious  grace came through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jn 1:14Jn 1:17  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

2Co 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.

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

This gracious grace  cane through our Lord,  when He painfully and shamefully died for humanity and you in particular on the cross of Calvary.

Hebrews 2:9  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.

Our Lord during His earthly ministry,  lived a lifestyle,  that showcase this  biblical  grace.

Luke 4:22  And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son?

Psa 45:2 Thou art fairer than the children of men:grace is poured into thy lips:therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.

Praise the Lord,  through this grace believers of all ages and you in particular were accepted in the beloved.

Ephesians 1:6-7 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

This enables the believers of all ages  that must include you  to live biblical gracious l lifestyle,  like Him.

Acts 11:23  Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.

The blessed Holy Spirit through apostle Paul  reemphasised  the importance of believers of all ages and you  living a  biblical gracious lifestyle,  after their conversion. . See it.

Tit 2:11Tit 2:12  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;

Ephesians 2:5  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

Eph 2:8Eph 2:9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Romans 5:2  By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

This grace is always sufficient for believers to go through every challenge,  that might come their ways.

2Co 12:92Co 12:10  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

This grace unusually enables believers of all ages and you , never ever to continue or entertain any form of sin in their lives.  Please don’t ever forget this.

Rom 6:1Rom 6:2  What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

Romans 5:15  But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

Rom 5:20Rom 5:21  Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Remember  dearly beloved,  never ever ,  receive the grace of  God  in vain. The  good Lord shall help you in Jesus  name.

2 Corinthians 6:1  We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.

Galatians 2:21  I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Friend, keep on tirelessly preparing for the dawning rapture. There  is one way to know whether you are in deed  preparing for this imminent event. Only those who believe and embrace  wholeheartedly,  the gospel of grace  are  those  that are really preparing for a glorious eternity or partaking  in the rapture.  I am persuaded you are one of such believers.

Acts 20:24  But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

However,  something  is very clear  in the lives of those who embrace  the gospel of grace.  They usually lives  gracious lifestyle, devoid of unrighteousness.

Tit 2:11Tit 2:12  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;

For such believers  God unusually  lavishes  them with this gracious,  grace.

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:

He does this always to help them continue to the end,  no matter or  in spite of  challenges confronting their lives.  Are you presently challenged.  Relax and remember,  that God shall ensure grace for you to continue,  is  ceaselessly given to you.

Acts 13:43  Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.

While doing this,  you must  never  ever  allow bitterness,  malice ,  unforgiving  spirit to spring inside of  you.

Hebrews 12:15  Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

In addition,  you live a lifestyle of biblical  humility.

1Pe 5:51Pe 5:6  Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

This way anytime the trumpet sound,  you shall be ready in Jesus name.

In All Things Show Thyself a Pattern of Good Works.

Enrich and Sustain your relationship and fellowship with Jesus on a daily basis as you read our daily devotional {www.clcbconline.com}

KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional | September 29, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional – In All Things Show Thyself a Pattern of Good Works.

Titus 2:7  In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity.

Beloved., God your loving Father is a  person of integrity. He always do what He says. This virtue make God the most loving and very very unfortunate,  the most strict.
This virtue must make you tremble before God and never ever take Him for granted.  See these two  people.  Adam, and  Lot’s wife,.
1. Adam

Gen 2:15Gen 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.

Gen 3:17Gen 3:19. And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Gen 3:23Gen 3:24. 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.

God never changed His mind. He did exactly what He said, He would do to Adam  for disobedience.
Lot’s wife.

Gen 19:15Gen 19:17  And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city. And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
She received unmerited mercy of deliverance through the prayer of Abraham,  but was damned,  now in hell through disobedience to inconsequential commandment.

Genesis 19:29. And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.

Genesis 19:26. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

Beloved as you seriously consider what happened to these two people,  then you must attach so much importance to all the commandments of God ,most especially  this one below.  This is because it is the reason why some so called saints of God shall be found missing at eternity.  This shall never be your portion.  So attach importance to it. See it.

Ezk 3:17Ezk 3:19. Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

See how the blessed Holy Spirit amplifies it.

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.

Jesus Christ our Lord is the light to the church. He gave us exemplary lifestyle to follow.

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

The church and that is referring to you in particular.  Don’t ever forget.  Is   the light of the world.  You are the church,  the light of the world.

Mat 5:14Mat 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 light  in the world;

THE  WORLD WILL  NOT  READ THE BIBLE. SO THEY  SHALL NOT BE SAVED.  BUT THEY WILL READ THE BIBLE THROUGH YOUR  EXEMPLARY LIFESTYLE,  AS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD  AND BE CONVERTED.. You  are the epistle that the  world must read for their  conversion.

2Co 3:2. Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:

Zch 8:23. Thus saith the Lord of hosts;In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations,even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying,We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.

Beloved,  the reason why some believers shall be conspicuously missing in heaven,  shall be because,  the world around them perished and God will request their blood in their hands, because they failed to show good example.  See what the Bible says.

Titus 2:7  In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity

1 Timothy 4:12. Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

See what God said about these people.
Noah

Genesis 7:1. And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Job

Job 1:8. And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

John the Baptist

Jn 5:33Jn 5:35. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

Beloved,  pause a little and be very sincere to yourself.  How will God describe your profession as a believer?  Are you a  light, ?  An  epistle through which unbelievers can read the Bible  and be saved?
Remember God wants you to be an  example through which the world around you shall be converted.  Don’t leet Him ask their blood from your hands, because of your  inability to shine as lights,  like Lot in Sodom,  before God destroyed them with fire.
BUT THEN WHEN YOU AS A SHINNING LIGHT TURN THEM TO RIGHTEOUSNESS  AND THEY ARE CONVERTED, YOU HAVE  A  PRIZED REWARD AWAITING YOU  AT ETERNITY.  This shall surely be your portion in Jesus name.

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

Dearly beloved,  the scriptures reveals to believers of all ages that Jesus our Lord ,  lived  exemplary lifestyle during His earthly ministry  for them and you in particular to follow.

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.

John 13:15  For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

John 17:17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Hebrews 7:26  For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

Believers of all ages and you in particular,  by determinedly following the  exemplary lifestyle of Jesus,  shall become light of  the world.  When you follow the exemplary lifestyle of Jesus,  you become little Christ,  called  Christian, shinning as He shined,  during His earthly ministry.

Acts 11:26  And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

This  shall  make you to become   good  examples for unbelievers to  emulate,  follow and be converted.

1Th 1:51Th 1:8  For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost: So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia. For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.

This is the singular prized rewarding assignment,  that our Lord,  gave all believers,  especially you. See it.

Titus 2:7  In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity.

1 Timothy 4:12  Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

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

Dearly beloved,  is there anything your spouse ,  your children,  your parents,  your siblings,  your close and extended  family members,  your neighbours and your colleagues are  seeing and turning them to Christ?  Are you a  good example or you are compromising with them to avoid persecution?  Are you a light in their darkness?
God”s  only assignment for you is to shine as light and facilities conversion of unbelievers.  May God help you to fulfil this rewardable  mandate in Jesus name.

Luk 1:16Luk 1:17  And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

Revelation 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be

Friend, as you check the cloud of witnesses of saints in heaven ,  presently,  you shall discover  that they were those who shined as light,  when they were on this side of heaven.   Think of  the following saints :
Joseph :

Gen 39:7Gen 39:9  And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me. But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand; There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

Daniel :

Daniel 1:8  But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

Ezekiel 14:14  Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord God.

Friend,  as you prepare for the dawning  rapture,  one thing that shall guarantee your readiness is your exemplary  lifestyle and  Christ likenesses.

Titus 2:7  In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity.

1 Timothy 4:12  Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

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;

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

Friend ,  something is reserved in heaven for us.

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

They are reserved for those who through their exemplary lifestyle and lips  advanced the kingdom of Christ.
The grace of God is given  primarily to believers and you in especially to accomplish this  laudable prized rewardable assignment.

Tit 2:11Tit 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;

This alone shall guarantee partaking in the imminent event. May the Lord find you faithful,  doing this singular assignment of saints in Jesus name.

IN HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE WHICH GOD THAT CAN NOT LIE

Enrich and Sustain your relationship and fellowship with Jesus on a daily basis as you read our daily devotional {www.clcbconline.com}

KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional | September 28, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional –  IN HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE

 

Titus 1:2  In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

Beloved,  I earnestly pray for you that you will not be a miserable person in Jesus name.  But as you look at almost  ninety five percent of those that profess religion or to be believers globally.  They are classified and described by the Bible as miserable people.
Remember God has so many transient things that can make you to be fulfilled here on this side of heaven.
I pray He will bountifully give them to you in Jesus name.  In addition to this transient  things.  He has one enduring eternal gift. Unfortunately,  majority of these miserable believers  ,  pursue only the transient things and despise the  most important gift of life eternal.  You shall not fall into the category of these miserable believers.  See this.

Ecc 3:13  And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

Ecc 5:18  Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.

1 Timothy 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;

Beloved if because of perishable things you are seeking God,  see how the Bible describe you.

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

Rev 3:15Rev 3:19  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.

Beloved,  if you are not going to be  part of these miserable believers,  then embrace and receive this promised eternal life,  a gift from God the Father.

Titus 1:2  In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

The promised gift had  been fulfilled.

Jn 3:16Jn 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.

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

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,  now that God had fulfilled this promise  through the shameful and painful death of His only begotten Son. See His wishes.

1Ti 2:31Ti 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.

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.

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?

See, He is willing to forgive humanity whatever they have done wrong for them to have this enduring eternal gift.  I am persuaded you have received this gift.  Please don’t allow it to elude you.  The consequence is devastating.  It shall never be  your portion.

Mic 7:18Mic 7:19 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.  He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

Dearly beloved, Jesus Christ,  our Lord was the fulfilment of this great promise of God.

Titus 1:2  In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

See how our Lord fulfilled this great promise. 
1. He stopped the onslaught of satan since the fall at Eden and restored dignity back to humanity. Hallelujah. 

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.

2. He became the gracious deoendable Shepherd of His followers of all ages. 

John 10:11  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

3. He gave them eternal life  ,  that guarantees their  safety from eternal damnation. 

Jn 10:27Jn 10:28  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

4. He gave them agape love.  

John 15:13  Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

5. His keeping and praying for us from straying away from the narrow way that leads to life eternal. 

John 17:12  While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

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

John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

He showed them exemplary lifestyle through which they could secure the life  eternal.

John 17:19  And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

Lastly He prayed for them to make life eternal and live with Him forever.

John 17:24  Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

The blessed Holy Spirit working in unison with Jesus come to reaffirm this great promise of God. See it.

Titus 1:2  In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

The scriptures affirmed them severally.  See them

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.

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

1 Timothy 6:12  Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

1Ti 6:171Ti 6:19  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; That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

1Jo 5:111Jo 5:13 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

May God see to it that this  great gift does not elude you in Jesus name.
Friend,  if you truly wants to be part of the dawning rapture, then with your whole weight lean only on the promised eternal life ,  from the  Father and His Son,  Jesus Christ,  our Lord and Saviour.

Titus 1:2  In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

John 17:2  As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

John 17:3  And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

This  is because there are two certain eternal ends awaiting every humanity and you in particular.

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

The only few wise believers that shall live in eternity with God  or partake  in  this imminent event are those that commit themselves to doing the  following  three things.
See them.
1. Lean wholly on His redemptive works alone for your eternal wellbeing. 

Jn 3:14Jn 3:15  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

2.  Leave all  pursuit of ephemera  and fully follow Jesus alone. 

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

3. Trustfully  and unquestionably  obey His directional voice through the scriptures. 

Jn 10:27Jn 10:28  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Receive grace to do them in Jesus name.

DELIVERED FROM EVERY EVIL WORKS AND PRESERVED…

Enrich and Sustain your relationship and fellowship with Jesus on a daily basis as you read our daily devotional {www.clcbconline.com}

KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional | September 27, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional – DELIVERED FROM EVERY EVIL WORKS AND PRESERVED FOR HEAVEN

 

2Ti 4:18  Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Beloved,   there is a sharp and remarkable difference between saints  and believers of old and in Bible days  compared with today’s  professed believers.  The  abiding presence of  God does not matter to them,  once their immediate  nerds are met.
But Bible days saints and believers  will do away with anything,  no matter what benefits they derive from those things,  if it will take away the abiding presence of God from them.  Moses told God that if God’s  presence will not go with them.  He said they would not want to go to the promised land.  See it.

Exo 33:14Exo 33:16 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.

Pause  here ,  are you  like Moses?  Will you  trade God’s abiding presence  with anything,  no matter what benefits you are getting from such thing . You need to  amend your  ways  and be like Moses.

Jer 7:3 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.

Beloved,  because saints of old treasure the abiding presence of  God more than anything.  See  what God was doing with them.
1. Joshua. 

Jos 1:5Jos 1:9  There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. 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. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

2. King David. 

Psa 91:1Psa 91:12  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;  Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.  Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

3. The nation of Israel. 

Isa 43:1Isa 43:5 But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee;and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.  Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;

4. Abraham 

Genesis 15:1 After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

5. The three Hebrews. 

Dan 3:14Dan 3:25Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up? Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands? Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated. And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

6. Daniel. 

Dan 6:16Dan 6:23 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee. And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel. Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of musick brought before him: and his sleep went from him. Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions. And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions? Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever. My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt. Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.

Beloved,  God will do same and more for you too,  from now on. But give priority to things of God.

Col 3:1Col 3:2  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.

Dearly beloved,  during the earthly ministry of Jesus ,  He never lost the abiding presence of His Father in heaven.  Even when He was to face the cross and His followers abandoned Him. God ”s presence was still with Him. See if.

Jn 16:32  Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

What price did He  pay for this to be possible?  If you too desire the presence of the Father,  you shall need to pay  the same price.

Jn 8:29  And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

Jesus our Lord promsed  Bible days believers and by extension believers of all ages,  especially you. The same abiding presence.   See them.

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.

Mark 16:20  And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

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

He promised it and even prayed for them and today’s believers  to be kept from evil .

Jn 17:14Jn 17:15   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.

It was this same abiding presence  of the Lord that the blessed Holy Spirit assures all believers  shall avail for them timely and all through  their lives  This unique priveledge  is for you too. Praise God.  See it.

2Ti 4:172Ti 4:18  Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

See how other Bible passages confirmed it.

Heb 13:5Heb 13:6  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

See the  realities of the  promise.

Act 18:9Act 18:10  Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

Acts 23:11  And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.

Act 27:18Act 27:25  And we being exceedingly tossed with a tempest, the next day they lightened the ship; And the third day we cast out with our own hands the tackling of the ship. And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away. But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss. And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man’s life among you, but of the ship. For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve, Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee. Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.

What God did for the Bible days believers shall be done to you too in Jesus name. Give attention to eternal things  and you too shall enjoy this uncommon privilege in Jesus name.
Friend,  God’s abiding presence will go along way to prepare you for the dawning rapture. This is because if anything is potent enough to separate God”s presence from anyone.  That sane thing shall disqualify the person from readiness  of this imminent event. You shall not be  disqualified in Jesus name. So sustain the presence of God in your life.  Don’t trade it for anything.

2Ti 4:172Ti 4:18  Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

God’s presence shall guarantee your deliverance from evils  before the  event shall take place. You shall be delivered from all evils in Jesus name.

2 Corinthians 1:10  Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;

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

2 Peter 2:9  The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished

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

Friend see what you need to do to sustain the abiding presence of  Jesus and be prepared for the rapture..

Jn 10:27Jn 10:28  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Never allow anything and anyone to hinder you from following Jesus and obeying His voice.  The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

THAT THE MAN OF GOD MAY BE PERFECT FOR GOOD WORKS

Enrich and Sustain your relationship and fellowship with Jesus on a daily basis as you read our daily devotional {www.clcbconline.com}

KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional | September 26, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional – THAT THE MAN OF GOD MAY BE PERFECT AND FURNISHED FOR GOOD WORKS

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

Beloved,  the greatest gift saints and Bible days believers enjoyed most from God,  your loving Father,  was  His  unfailing ,  unchanging,  eternal word.   All that Noah,  Abraham,  Moses,  Joshua had and they did extraordinary  exploits were the dependable words of God. See an instance.

Gen 15:5Gen 15:6  And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

Rom 4:18Rom 4:21  Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

The reasons while they believe the word of God could be summarised as follows :
1. Settled forever in heaven. 

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

2. None of God’s word can fail.  

Isa 34:16Isa 34:17 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. And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein

3. It will do exactly what it says. 

Isaiah 55:11 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.

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

4. God magnified His words more than His name. 

Psa 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.

5. His words are the pathway for prosperity and success. 

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.

6. His words guaranteed healing ,  deliverance and good health. 

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.

Psalms 107:20  He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

7. God”s words  revealed   the way to greatness and headship. 

Proverbs 22:29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.

Deu 28:1Deu 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.

8. God’s words keeps them from falling into satanic snares. 

Proverbs 1:33  But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

Pro 22:3  A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself:but the simple pass on, and are punished.

9. God”s words showed them the pathway to eternity with God. 

Isa 35:8Isa 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:

10. God”s words enabled them to be perfect. 

2Ti 3:162Ti 3:17  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Beloved,  all of these are available to you too.  Just follow after their good example.  Be obedient to God in all things and you also shall enjoy both earthly and eternal blessings derivable  from God’s eternal and unfailing words in Jesus name.

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.

Dearly beloved, Jesus our Lord was the unspeakable gift of God through which believers of all ages and you in particular,  can receive all things from God ,  freely.

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?

He was the undeniable  living,  written  and spoken word.

Jn 1:1Jn 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.

See things derivable freely simply by believing and obeying the word.
1.  Everlasting life. 

Jn 3:16Jn 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.

2. Walking in the light. 

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.

3. Becoming peculiar disciple.

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;

4. Knowing the truth that guarantee dominion. 

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

5. Freedom from satanic assaults. 

Jn 8:36   if the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

6. Pathway  to desirable greener pastures. 

John 10:9  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

7. Abundant life. 

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.

8. Reliable Shepherd. 

John 10:11  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

9.  Preservation from eternal damnation. 

Jn 10:27Jn 10:28  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

10. Sword to defeat satan  at all times. 

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.

Ephesians 6:17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

The blessed Holy Spirit the author of the word ,  further reassures  believers of all ages and you about the profitability and reliability of the entire word of God that guarantees perfection and completeness.

2Ti 3:162Ti 3:17  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

See how it was affirmed.
1. This word makes you wise unto salvation. 

 2 Timothy 3:15  And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

2. It grant you access to God’s  toral prosperity without sorrow. Financial,  material,  physical and spiritual. 

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

3. What to do to access eternity with Christ. 

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

4. How to avoid damnation. 

Mat 7:21Mat 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.

Revelation 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

So determinedly commit yourself henceforth to believing and obeying the entirety of the scriptures  for your earthly and eternal fortunes.  It shall be so in Jesus name.
Friend, the scriptures reveals and assures serious minded believers like you that the rapture is real and dawning.

1Th 4:151Th 4:17 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.

The imminent rapture is part of the all profitable scriptures.

2Ti 3:162Ti 3:17  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

The scriptures now reveals how you can be adequately prepare like the wise virgins without stress. See what you must do.

Isa 33:15Isa 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.

Never fall a victim of those who are choosing and picking what they will believe in the Bible. Our Lord says it  leads to damnation.  Don’t despise it.

 Jn 12:46Jn 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.

But embrace  the entirety of Jesus saying and do them. It guarantees  readiness for the imminent event.

Mat 7:24Mat 7:26  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

Rev 3:10Rev 3:12  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.

CLCBC | Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | 2 Timothy 3:5 – Having a form or appearance of godliness but denying the power thereof, from such turn away from such as these.

2nd Timothy 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,  God your heavenly  Father  has resolved to go extra mile to help His saints not to fall victim of the wiles of saran again like Adam  fell.

Eph 6:10Eph 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.

See what He had resolved to be doing.. It will do you a world of good to take advantage of this guidance.

Psalms 32:8  I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

Isa 48:17Isa 48:18  Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.  O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:

Isaiah 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

Isa 42:19Isa 42:20  Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent?  who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the Lord’s servant? Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not.

Beloved,  the saints of old that took advantage of His timely guidance were delivered from devastating  catastrophe    See an instance.

Gen 26:1Gen 26:6  And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.  And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:

Beloved,   the undoing of many inside and outside the church in the perilous times of the last days is to despise and reject God’s  gracious guidance.  This  shall make them fall into so many avoidable  calamities and even untimely death. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name. So take advantage of the timely guidance of God.

2Ti 3:12Ti 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.

Dearly  beloved,  one unusual way Jesus our Lord showed His great love to believers in Bible days  and by extension  believers of today  which includes  you iwas to provide them with timely warning to help them avoid tireless subtle  satanic wiles.

Mat 24:4Mat 24:5  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.

Mat 24:11Mat 24:12  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Mat 24:23Mat 24:25  Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.

It was this same timely warning  the blessed Holy Spirit was seriously  impressing on believers of today  through  apostle Paul.  See it.

2Ti 3:12Ti 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.

See how the scriptures affirmed it. 

2Th 2:12Th 2:4  Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is Go

1Ti 4:11Ti 4:2  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

2Ti 4:12Ti 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.

The good  Lord shall help you  heed this  all important warning and avoid the subtle tireless wiles  of Satan in Jesus name.
Friend,  because of the reality  of  the present perilous times,  is an indication that the rapture is dawning.

2Ti 3:12Ti 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.

Friend only believers like you that shall heed the warning of the  blessed Holy  Spirit  shall be ready when the imminent  event shall take place.  The Lord shall help you  in Jesus name.   See some of  these very important warnings.
1. Don’t entertain any ministrations from false teachers.  

2Jo 1:82Jo 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.

2.  Live by the entirety of the  scriptures  till Jesus comes  

Rev 3:10Rev 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.

3. Hold on to  the truth you have learnt no matter what it will cost  you. 

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

4. Don’t  compromise to avoid persecutions.  

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

See you at the top in Jesus name

SANCTIFIED AND MEET FOR THE MASTER’S USE

Enrich and Sustain your relationship and fellowship with Jesus on a daily basis as you read our daily devotional {www.clcbconline.com}

KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional | September 24, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional – SANCTIFIED AND MEET FOR THE MASTER’S USE

2Ti 2:21  But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

Beloved, when you read the Bible and discover the supernatural wrought by men of like passion  like you in the time past.  You sometimes marvel and wish you too could attain such heights.. But then there was nothing extra ordinary about these  saints.  What they attained were accomplished by the choice they made.
Interestingly,  sane opportunity and privileges  are available to you too,  if you  too will  make the choice they made.
See the following :
1. God your loving Father,  still remains unchanged. 

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

2. The call they answered  is still subsisting to the end of time.

Isa 6:8Isa 6:9  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.  And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.

Ezekiel 22:30  And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

Beloved,  the difference between these saints and you perhaps is your unwillingness to pay the price and consecrate  all to God,  like them.  Now see this clarion call to today’s  believers  which includes you.

2Ti 2:202Ti 2:21  But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

In the kingdom of God,  you decide whether you will be a vessel of honour or dishonour,  yourself.
If you choose to be vessel of honour then you purge yourself  of  sin, self,  flesh ,  the world and follow Jesus. . This was simply what all these saints did. So join them by heeding the call of God and purge yourself.  May the good Lord help you in particular in Jesus name.
Enoch turned his back to the world and walked with God.  Do same and become another
Enoch. 

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

Moses refused the throne of Egypt. Do sane stop pursuing ephemeral and  transient things and work for Christ.

Heb 11:24Heb 11:26  By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

Ezra began to study the law and God used Him. Begin to study the Bible  and obey it and God shall use you.

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

Nehemiah saw the need to rebuild the broken wall of Jerusalem.  God never called him to do so.  Then God used him. Begin to reach out in love to the unsaved  in your world of influence.  Then see what God shall do.

Neh 1:1Neh 1:11  The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the palace, That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire. And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven, And said, I beseech thee, O Lord God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments: Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father’s house have sinned. We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses. Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations: But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there. Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand. O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king’s cupbearer.

Daniel  purged himself.  Do same from now on.  God shall notice you and use you .

Daniel 1:8  But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

Saul of Tarsus  who became apostle Paul. Paul became more relevant than all the apostles before him, because he laboured more.  Do same and become peculiar to God.

Act 9:3Act 9:6 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.

1Co 15:10  But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

Beloved,  God has placed an open cheque before you.  Make your choice and become a vessel of honour now and at eternity.  May the Lord help you in Jesus name.

2Ti 2:202Ti 2:21  But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work

Dearly beloved, study the Bible,  you shall discover some glorious things happened to our Lord by His choice,  not automatic.  See some of them.
1. His exalted name. 

Phi 2:5Phi 2:11  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

2. His immeasurable anointing. 

Hebrews 1:9  Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

John 3:34  For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

Now Jesus has thrown the same opportunity open to you in particular.   So come in and become peculiar.

Mat 9:37Mat 9:38  Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Jesus is looking for labourers.  Are you available?  The choice is yours,  come leave all,  like the believers  of old.
The same open cheque Jesus gave was reaffirmed and reestablished by the  blessed Holy  Spirit.  See it.

2Ti 2:202Ti 2:21  But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work

See those believers in the new testament  became what they became by choice,  not by luck.
1. Mathew became apostle by choice. 

Matthew 9:9  And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.

2. Peter and others became apostles by choice. 

Mat 19:27Mat 19:29  Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

3. Timothy  became bishop and next in rank in the ministry of apostle Paul by choice. 

Phi 2:19Phi 2:23  But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state. For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s. But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel. Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me.

4. It is your turn.  Please answer this call and become another apostle of choice. 

Act 16:9Act 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.

Go reach out to your unsaved spouse ,  children,  parents,  siblings,  close and extended  relatives,  colleagues in place of work and neighbours. Bring then to Christ.  Doing so shall make you too a vessel of honour in Jesus name.
Friend,  the rapture is dawning.  Unfortunately,  those that shall partake shall do so by choice.
Only believers  that purge themselves shall be part.  I am sure you will purge yourself.

2Ti 2:202Ti 2:21  But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work

How would you do so?
1. Become one of the  wise virgins. 

Mat 25:1Mat 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.

2. Be wise. Hear and do the entirety of the words of Jesus in the Bible.  

Mat 7:24Mat 7:26  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

Purge and separate yourself from everything and everyone that wants to hinder you from the two things above.  God’s grace shall avail for you in Jesus name.

LET EVERY ONE CALLED AFTER THE NAME OF CHRIST DEPART FROM INIQUITY

Enrich and Sustain your relationship and fellowship with Jesus on a daily basis as you read our daily devotional {www.clcbconline.com}

KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional | September 23, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional – DEPART FROM INIQUITY

2 Timothy 2:19  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

Beloved,  you must determinedly pursue something.  You must not give  yourself   rest  until it is attained.  You must have a likeness  after God your  loving Father.  He is sinless and does not tolerate sin from men or angels. When angels of high rank like  lucifer  sinned,  He drove him out of heaven.

Isa 14:12Isa 14:15  How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

When  Adam  made after the likeness of God sinned, He drove him out of paradise of Eden.

Gen 3:23Gen 3:24 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,  remember this sin , inward  or outward,  great or inconsequential,  shall separate  a man  from God’s  presence on earth and at heaven .

Isa 59:1Isa 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.

This is because God can not behold  sin   from anyone.  Even when our Lord Jesus Christ was carrying our sins.  Even though  He  Himself was sinless.  He was separated from God  momentarily.

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?

See,  God can not behold sin or tolerate iit from anyone and that includes you. Don’t ever ever forget.

Hab 1:13  Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil,and canst not look on iniquity:wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously,and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?

The reason for this is very simple.  Two can not walk together without  agreement.

Hosea 3:3  And I said unto her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for thee.

To help Abraham to walk with God,  he must be perfect.  Because you must walk with God,  it is  compulsory  not optional.  You must be perfect and sinless

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.

See consequences  of sin here and hereafter.
1. Life threatening sickness  

Psa 107:17Psa 107:18  Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.

2. Physical and eternal  death 

Ezk 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.

3. Ruined life here and hereafter. 

Ezekiel 18:30  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.

4. Withdrawal of good things from God  

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

I am persuaded  you are sinless.  But just in case you are not.  See what you must do immediately.

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.

This becomes mandatory and  expedient because this very evening,  might be too late to do so. 

Isa 55:6Isa 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.

See God’s unchanging  commandment for you and me.  Receive  grace to do so  in Jesus name

2 Timothy 2:19  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

Dearly beloved, no doubt Jesus our Lord either during His earthly  ministry  or now in His eternal majesty,  remains very loving but detest sin with utmost intolerance   This was because during His earthly ministry,  He lived exemplary lifestyle  of sinlessness,  that could not be faulted by human or spirit  beings.  See it yourself.

John 8:46  Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

Jn 14:30  Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

During this time,  He pardoned  sin with agape love but commanded thereafter,  to all His hearers and followers,  to abstain  from sin in it’s  entirety.  You are  excluded in this  commandments.  See them.

Jn 8:10Jn 8:11  When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

John 5:14  Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

The blessed Holy  Spirit  who Himself is the spirit of holiness firmly established  this compulsory sinless lifestyle  demanded from heavenly  minded believers through apostle
Paul. See it.

2 Timothy 2:19  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

This becomes  absolutely necessary because of the eternal end of sinners inside or outside the church.  See them.

1Co 6:91Co 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.

Gal 5:19Gal 5:21  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

See sinless lifestyle is feasible.

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

Please learn from this  husband  and wife ,  who both died inside the church for lying   Be determined to live a sinless lifestyle,  if eternity with God is very important to you.  May the good  Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

Act 5:1Act 5:10   But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whilst it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out. Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.

Friend, it is no secret rapture is dawning.  Only graceful believers free from inward and outward sin’s shall be part of it. You shall be part in  Jesus name.  See it

Rom 6:1Rom 6:4  What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 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.

Friend,  grace makes you to reckon yourself dead to sin and alive  to God in righteousness.  

Rom 6:11Rom 6:18  Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Friend,  grace empowers you and I am referring to you in particular.  That grace,  God’s grace will enables you to depart from iniquity.

2 Timothy 2:19  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

This is because anyone  and everyone  committing sin is of the devil.  Don’t ever ever forget  this

1Jo 3:81Jo 3:10  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 devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

Sinners shall not have access to  heaven nor be part of the  imminent  rapture.  You shall be  part in Jesus name.

Revelation 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

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.

Receive grace to be sinless,  until you meet Jesus in the sir in Jesus bane

Tit 2:11Tit 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.

IF WE ARE NOT FAITHFUL, YET HE REMAINS FAITHFUL:

Enrich and Sustain your relationship and fellowship with Jesus on a daily basis as you read our daily devotional {www.clcbconline.com}

KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional | September 21, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional –  HE REMAINS FAITHFUL

2Ti 2:13  It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Beloved,  one major  attribute that made God your loving Father,  what He has been from eternity past to eternity future,  is His undeniable and unfailing faithfulness.  Always remember this your Father in heaven is faithful through and through.

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

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

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

It was this unfailing faithfulness that made saints of old in both old and new testaments to be able to stake their lives for anything pertaining to Him.  See some of these saints. See how they all basked in the unfailing faithfulness of a God that can never fail and will never ever fail.
1. Abraham 

Heb 11:17Heb 11:19  By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

2. Sarah 

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

3. Moses 

Heb 11:24Heb 11:27  By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

4. Paul apostle. 

2Ti 1:112Ti 1:12  Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

5  Job the patraich. 

Job 19:25Job 19:26  For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

6. The three Hebrews. 

Dan 3:14Dan 3:18Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up? Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands? Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Beloved,  that the challenges of your life is still confronting you does not make God unfaithful,  unable to address it or  unconcerned.   Know this and don’t ever,  ever forget.
1. The problem has a time frame.  Just wait patiently  for God, because He is doing something about it.  You are the only one who does not see what is doing.

Isa 28:16  Therefore thus saith the Lord God,Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone,a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation:he that believeth shall not make haste.

Heb 10:35Heb 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.

2. There is a way out of this problem,  so trust God.

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

Psalms 62:8  Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

Beloved ,  if you check the Bible,  many others have gone through what was more traumatic and fearsome than yours and they came out triumphantly.  This same shall be your portion if you trust Him and patiently wait for Him.

Psa 37:7  Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him:fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way,because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

If anyone draws back see what shall happen to such person.  It shall never be your portion.  Whoever  denies the Lord and opted for compromise  and seek the help of the devil,  shall loose here and hereafter.  I am persuaded that you also shall join the heroes of faith and this challenge of yours shall soon turn to testimony and bring glory to God in the name of Jesus.

2Ti 2:112Ti 2:13  It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Luk 21:13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

Dearly beloved, let it be settled in your heart that , our Lord  Jesus Christ, your loving redeemer is not just faithful.  His name is faithful. See it

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

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

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

Rev 19:11Rev 19:13  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

All He demanded  from all His followers of all ages and you in particular,  is unashamed faithfulness.  See His fearsome warning for any who do other wise.  No doubt in my mind that nothing will ever make you to deny Him  in Jesus  name.

Mat 10:32Mat 10:33  Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

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.

Luke 9:26  For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.

The blessed Holy Spirit who is the singular comforter of  believers assured them never ever to  deny Him. This is  because there is no reason for such thing. Doing so has worrisome consequences here and hereafter.  So never ever contemplate it.  See it.

2Ti 2:112Ti 2:13  It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

See the uniform testimonies of believers in Bible days and even in our contemporary times;  who counted on the unfailing faithfulness of our most gracious Redeemer.

Rom 8:35Rom 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.

Two things are the realities in the lifestyle of anyone that deny Christ.  One such a person is a liar  like satan  and two such person does not have God the Father and His Son.  Certainly none of these are your portion.

1Jo 2:221Jo 2:23  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

Friend, one major virtue that shall characterise  the livestyle of those that shall have part in the dawning  rapture is the fact that,  they counted Jesus our Lord faithful and they themselves followed Him in total faithfulness. Glory to God ,  you are one of such faithful believers. 

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

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

Regretably,  those that shall miss  this dawning event are those who deny Jesus and they also are denied by Him,  according to His unchanging  infallible word

2Ti 2:112Ti 2:13  It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Receive grace not to be part of these  carefree churchgoers in Jesus name.

CHRIST – RISEN FROM THE DEAD | KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional

Enrich and Sustain your relationship and fellowship with Jesus on a daily basis as you read our daily devotional {www.clcbconline.com}

KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional | September 21, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional – 2 Timothy 2:8. Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:

Beloved, always remember this. God’s words in the Bible are infallible, eternal, unfailing, unchanging and sure word of prophecy, settled forever.

2 Peter 1:19-21. We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

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

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.

Isaiah 55:11. 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.

All these  words of God have seasons for fulfillment. At their seasons they shall surely come to pass.

Isaiah 60:22. A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time.

Habakkuk 2:3. 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.

Beloved,  God honour and magnify His words than all His names including the exalted name of our Lord Jesus.

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.

Because of all of the above about God’s words. Give utmost importance and attention to the scripture below. See it.

2 Timothy 2:8. Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel.

Pause and meditate, why Paul exhorted Timothy the next in rank in his ministry to remember that Jesus was raised from dead. It was because the most significant reason for the resurrection of Jesus, was to affirm the certainty of the rapture of saints, especially the dead saints.
Don’t ever forget this singular all important truth, too. . The rapture involved two groups. The dead saints and living believers. The resurrection of Christ affirmed that, in the same way Jesus died, raised up and ascended to heaven. So dead saints shall be raised and raptured to meet our Lord in the air.
In the Old Testament, two living saints were raptured to affirm the living saints imminent rapture see them
1. Enoch. 

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

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

2.  Elijah, surprisingly even before Elijah was raptured, his been caught up to heaven was an open secret to the sons of  prophets at Bethel and Jericho.  See it.

2 Kings 2:1-11. And it came to pass, when the Lord would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal. And Elijah said unto Elisha, Tarry here, I pray thee; for the Lord hath sent me to Bethel. And Elisha said unto him, As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they went down to Bethel. And the sons of the prophets that were at Bethel came forth to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Lord will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he said, Yea, I know it; hold ye your peace. And Elijah said unto him, Elisha, tarry here, I pray thee; for the Lord hath sent me to Jericho. And he said, As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. So they came to Jericho. And the sons of the prophets that were at Jericho came to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Lord will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he answered, Yea, I know it; hold ye your peace. And Elijah said unto him, Tarry, I pray thee, here; for the Lord hath sent me to Jordan. And he said, As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee. And they two went on. And fifty men of the sons of the prophets went, and stood to view afar off: and they two stood by Jordan. And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped it together, and smote the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground.  And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me. And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so. And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

In addition, Enoch  before he was raptured, he. also, prophesied about the second coming of Christ, that shall happen seven years after the rapture. See it.

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

Beloved with all these, be rest assured that, the rapture shall take place in its season. And that season is already dawning. Please be prepared.

2 Timothy 2:8. Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:

Dearly beloved, you know that our Lord Jesus Christ was the truth personified. He could not lie. Severally during His earthly ministry, He informed His followers in Bible days and by extension His followers of all ages, which includes you, that , the catching away of both dead and living saints , shall surely come to pass in its season. See some of them.

John 14:1-3. 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.

Matthew 24:38-42. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

The blessed Holy Spirit who Himself was one of the triune God and the one that shall lead raptured saints back to heaven, reminded believers of all ages about the certainty of the rapture of the saints through apostle Paul. See it.

2 Timothy 2:8. Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:

See it confirmed that , the dead and living believers shall be raptured very soon.

1 Thessalonians 4:15-17. 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.

Please like the five wise virgins, prepare adequately for this dawning event. It shall not elude you in Jesus name.
Friend, just like the sons of prophets knew Elijah would be taken to heaven alive without seeing death as a representation of the rapture of the living saints. So the apostles of Christ gave more sure words of prophecies  about the certainty of the dawning rapture.
See some of them.

2 Timothy 2:8. Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:

1. Prophecy by Paul

1 Corinthians 15:51-52. 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.

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

1 Peter 5:1-4. The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

3. Prophecy by John the beloved 

1 John 3:1-3. Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

All of these apostles talk about when Christ shall appear. He will appear in the air in its season to catch the dead saints  and living believers away. I am persuaded you are daily preparing. Please don’t be tired. It is going to happen suddenly very very soon. Get ready.
The Lord shall help you in Jesus name.
