Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | July 29, 2019 | Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional  And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. – Ephesians 2:1-3.

Ephesians 2:1-3 kjv nkjv nlt esv niv
And you hath he quickened
Made alive in christ
dead in trespasses and sins
Wherein in time past ye walked

And you hath he quickened { made alive in christ } who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world – Ephesian 2:1-3

Beloved, your gratitude should always be to your loving Father in heaven for His unchanging desire to bring the entire human race to repentance and biblical salvation. This is His goal for you in particular. I am persuaded it has been realised, but if not, today the Lord in mercy shall consummate it in your life in Jesus name.

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

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

This must happen because, even thou God loves humanity, the crown of His creation, but He abhorred sin and can not tolerate it from anybody, not even you in particular.

Habakkuk 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?

Always remember this. God is angry with the wicked or sinner everyday and He will cast them to hell. You shall not be cast to hell in Jesus name.

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?

It is very interesting beloved, for you in particular to know that, God did not live believers in darkness as to what constitute sin. He  revealed to the people in the Old Testament what the components of sins are.  See them.

Leviticus 19:11-18 Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another. And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord. Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the Lord. Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honour the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour. Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the Lord. Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him. Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord.

But then, not only did He revealed the components of sins, He also warned on its consequences, just in case anyone and everyone despise it. See the consequences.

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

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.

Psalms 107:17-18. 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.

Beloved, your Father, is supernaturally benevolent. He made simple the  way of reconciling  or restoration.  See them,

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

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

Isaiah 55:6-7. 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.

I am persuaded you are biblically saved. If not take advantage of His redemptive provisions. The trumpet or clarion call to eternity can take place before the end of today. Be wise. God bless you.
Dearly beloved, Jesus Christ our Lord during His earthly ministry came principally for a  unique purpose, no other person can accomplish. See what He came for.

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

He tirelessly laboured to communicate this to all and sundry in such a way that everyone could comprehend.

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

He encouraged them in love to repent and be saved.

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

Beside this, our Lord did not live anyone in darkness about sin. He explained what sins meant. See them.

Matthew 19:18-19. He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Interestingly , everyone that came in contact with Him and  received His blessing were  warned never to go back to sin and be damned.

 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.

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

He repeatedly warned everyone and anyone and that includes you to repent every known and unknown sins . Sins of omission and commission.

Luke 13:3. I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Luke 13:5. I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

In addition He exhorted all His followers of all ages and you,  to remove with your strength  anything and everything, that can constitute stumblingblock to living with God in eternity or partaking in the rapture.

Mark 9:43-47. And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

He warned all men of what God will do to any unrepentant sinner and that does not exclude you.

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

All of these efforts of our Lord Jesus put together was what the blessed Holy Spirit simplified and amplified. That sin must have been past tense in the lives of believers of all ages and you who profess to have been saved.  See it.

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

See same thing affirmed through  another scripture.

1 Corinthians 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.

Dearly beloved these exhortations of the blessed Holy Spirit becomes very important, because at the time of rapture or clarion call to come back to eternity, if a single one out of these listed sins is discovered in the life of anyone and everyone.
Such a  person goes straight to perdition not paradise. Now it is very pertinent to sincerely examine your life in this mirror of God’s words now. Tomorrow might be too late. See them.

Romans 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.

Romans 13:9-10. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

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

Please examine yourself now and do the needful. The good Lord shall help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
Friend,  the rapture is dawning. Only those who are dead to sin, shall be part of it.

Romans 6:1-2 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?

 Those who are dead in sin shall be disqualified. Are you dead to sin or you are dead in sin?

Ephesians 2:1-2. And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

The following categories of people inside or outside the church shall be disqualified. You shall not be disqualified in Jesus name. See them.
1. Those whose names are not written in the book of life, shall not be part of the rapture. Is your own name in particular in the book of life?

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

2. The abominable, unbelieving immoral and unclean people shall not be part of the rapture.
Are you free from all of these?
Have you divorced your first spouse to marry another when he or she is still alive?
That is the straight way to hell fire. Make necessary restitutions and corrections, before it is too late.

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.

3. Those that are defiled shall not be part of the rapture. Have you, been cleansed from defilements?

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.

Mark 7:21-23. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

To be fully ready and prepared, you must be committed to the following till you hear the trumpet to meet Him in the sky. God’s grace shall avail for you in Jesus name.
1. Only the obedient like Christ shall be part of the rapture. Are you rendering wholehearted obedience to God or partial obedience?

1 Peter 1:14. As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

1 Samuel 15:22-23 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Hebrews 5:7-8. Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

2. You must have clean hands and pure heart. Is your hands clean? How about your heart, is it pure? Make sure your hand is clean and your heart is pure.

Psalms 24:3-4. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

3. You must be walking in righteousness and holiness. You must be free from bribery and corruption.
Are you still giving bribe to secure business or still receiving bribes to do something for others?
It is time you put a permanent end to it, if you shall meet the Lord in the sky.

Isaiah 33:15-17. 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.

4. You must be humble. The proud shall be disqualified. Are you free from pride?

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