Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | December 13, 2019. Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional  The one who practices sin [separating himself from God, and offending Him by acts of disobedience, indifference, or rebellion] is of the devil [and takes his inner character and moral values from him, not God]; for the devil has sinned and violated God’s law from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. – 1 John 3:8 

 

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, – 1 John 3:8

Beloved, I rejoice so much with you because through the goodness of your loving Father in heaven you in particular have become wise.
I earnestly pray for you that you shall be profited immensely here and hereafter by your choice to be a wise person.

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

Being wise then makes you to always look beyond now in everything you do.  Praise God that is the kind of person you are.

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

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

There is something very very important that you must discover now. In fact discovering it now actually validates your being wise.
Those people within and outside of the church who waited until they get to eternity before they discover it are foolish. You shall not be foolish in Jesus name.
See what this important discovery is, as contained in the passage below.

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

Beloved this passage is very emphatic and defines eternal well-being of anyone and everyone.
Whoever is commiting sin belong to the devil and such shall share same eternity with satan according to God’s unchanging, infallible words. See it yourself.

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

Why are these people sharing the same eternity with satan? It is because they failed to discover now this important fact that whosoever is commiting sin, is of the devil. Please see how the scriptures compare the righteous and the unrighteous , commiting sin.

1Jo 3:7 — 10  Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 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.
Beloved, your loving Father in heaven loves righteousness and only the righteous shall live with Him in eternity. See it yourself.

Psa 11:7  For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness;his countenance doth behold the upright.

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

God from time immemorial had an unchanged stance to sinners inside or outside of the church.
See it yourself. Sinners in Zion means sinners inside the church.

Psalms 7:11  God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.

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

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

Rom 1:28 — 32  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

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.

However, some of us because we were wise , even though sinners from birth, reached out to Jesus and appropriated His substitutional sacrifice and became justified.
Thank God you belong to this category. But then ensure that by the grace of God you are now completely free from sin within and without.

1Co 6:9 — 11  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. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Tit 2:11 — 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;

Dearly beloved, Jesus Christ our Lord and savior in deed is very loving and loves you in particular so much. See it yourself.

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

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

Heb 2:16 — 18  For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. 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. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

However, there is something you must know about Jesus and never ever allow anyone to mislead you about this very very important fact about Jesus.
He doesn’t tolerate sin from anyone and everyone. See these  scriptures and never ever forget.

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

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.

Jn 8:10 — 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.

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

Mat 7:21 — 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 prophe sied in thy name? we have cast out devils in thy name? also in thy name done many wonderful works? then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

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

Dearly beloved know all  these scriptures above, now and be guided by them. No sinner inside or outside the church that shall enjoy sympathy of Jesus at eternity.
No sinner inside the church can placate Him with worship without being free from sin. He honours His words that command you to be free from sin than any name you might ascribed to Him in worship.

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.

Seek His grace which is very sufficient now and be free and free in deed from sin within and without.

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:

John 8:36  If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Friend, glory to God you are persuaded the end time is here and the rapture is already dawning . But then do more.
The foolish virgins were aware the bridegroom was coming but failed to adequately prepare. You are wise, then behave wisely.

Mat 25:1 — 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.

Friend, because you are wise then give attention and prominence to this eternity defining scripture. See it yourself.

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

Friend, see these unwise people in the church. Don’t be like them.  The angle of the church is the minister. But very very unfortunately, his or her  congregation shall share same faith.

Rev 3:1 — 2  And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Rev 3:14 — 20  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; also anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Friend, this is where you should belong to. This is why you should be sure your minister is heaven bound in his or her ministration.

Rev 3:7 — 11  And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
