James 4:8 “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse [your] hands, [ye] sinners; and purify [your] hearts, [ye] double minded.”

It's time for a wake-up call; our judgment is nearer than we think. Jesus Christ will soon return to the earth and vanquish all evil from His holy presence. We cannot afford to toy with sin and disobedience any longer. We should turn towards our God now and repent of all our wrongdoing. The Lord is ever merciful to the human condition and He will gladly forgive us if we are sincere and contrite.

He wants nothing more than to gather us to Himself for all of eternity. However, sin of any kind gets in the way and interrupts our fellowship. We must allow the purging fire of almighty God to cleanse us of all our defilement, so that we can intimately relate to Him, as we should. We must be sanctified of all our fleshly lusts and selfishness of the soul in order to enter into the everlasting Kingdom of God.

We inherently know the truth; we cannot be on the fence in any way. Our salvation is an all or nothing proposition. Sin offends God and destroys our rapport with Him. He is under no obligation to associate with those who are stubborn and rebellious. We will bring a fiery judgment and lasting condemnation on ourselves if we persist in lawlessness. We must repent of our sins and renounce them.

1John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

If we are truly sincere, the Lord will be quick to hear our confession and forgive us of all our transgression. He will restore us to right standing with Him and even blot our sin from His memory. He will reinstate all of our promised blessings and treat us as His very own sons and daughters. There is no good thing that He will ever withhold from us, if we are obedient and walk in love for Him and others.

We must be diligent to protect our righteousness and guard it from contamination at all times. We cannot flirt with temptation and hope to escape its consequences. We are to be in the world, but not of it. We have to maintain a godly perspective in all that we think, say and do. If we imitate the laid down life of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we will be empowered to become and remain sin free.

He will be pleased with all of our efforts, and strengthen us to prevail at all times. We will learn to overcome the world, our flesh and the devil and become fitting role models for others. If we are totally sanctified and consecrated to His service, Christ will imbue us with divine power and authority, so we can operate on His behalf. We will confront all mankind and share our faith with them.

Philippians 2:12 “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”

We will challenge every man, woman and child that we meet to seek the truth of the Gospel message. We will see many born again and baptized in Jesus' name unto eternal life. We will show them how to remain righteous at all times, and teach them to how to mature spiritually. We will encourage them to pray and ask the Lord for the baptism in His Holy Spirit, so that they can be strengthened in their spirits.

Each of us has to ultimately work out our own salvation. We cannot escape the Lord's scrutiny. He sees everything that we do and our behavior must always be above and beyond reproach. If we maintain a close relationship with our heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, we will be able to conquer our human weakness and tendency towards sin and evil. Our goal should be to become holy and perfect.

Our time on this earth is a testing period for us. We are spirit beings having a human experience that will either culminate in victory or defeat. The temptation to sin is always before us, but it is possible for us to overcome it, if we are diligent. We can crucify our flesh with all of its lusts and subdue our souls. We can eventually acquire and develop spiritual attributes that are like those of almighty God Himself.

2Timothy 4:18 “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.”

The Lord stands ready to assist us in our spiritual growth and development. He has made salvation available to each and every one of us and He will not abandon us now. If we ask Him to deliver us from all evil, He will always respond favorably. There is no reason why any of us should remain in bondage to sin. The Lord will send His purging fire to cleanse us of all unrighteousness.

We can cooperate with our sanctification and become holy and perfect, just as God is holy and perfect. He has only our best interest in mind and a wonderful plan for our future. If we submit ourselves to God and humbles ourselves under His mighty hand, He will exalt us in due time. He is ever faithful to lead and guide us, so that we are preserved holy and blameless until Christ returns.

Unless we become and remain sin free at all times and under all circumstances, we will never be able to enter into the everlasting Kingdom of God when it comes to the earth. The Lord will actually come and take up residence with His people and no wickedness can survive His presence. He is holy and perfect and sin only defiles Him. All evil will be destroyed in the wrath of His coming.

There is a strict judgment that is coming on all of us in the very near future. When Jesus Christ returns to us, He will not be a meek and mild Lamb of God this time. He has vengeance in His heart to destroy all the enemies of almighty God and His people. He will tolerate no rebellion in any of us. If we have failed to repent of all known sin and sanctify ourselves, we will be eternally punished.


Righteousness Like Filthy Rags

Isaiah 64:6 “But we are all as an unclean [thing], and all our righteousnesses [are] as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”

Our righteousness is but filthy rags; all of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Nothing that we can do in our own strength will remedy that situation. We all need deliverance from our sins and our right standing with almighty God to be restored. We can never enter His presence if we remain as we are. He is holy and perfect and He cannot ever be contaminated with evil of any kind.

Without God in our lives we are doomed to utter destruction. We need to be connected with Him as the source of all life. He has seen our plight and has a permanent solution to our problem. If we repent of all known sin and renounce it for all time, He makes salvation available to us through His Son, Jesus Christ. We can be redeemed of all iniquity, and become God's very own sons and daughters.

Complete righteousness is accessible to us now; we are no longer subject to the penalty of death for our transgressions. We can be set free from our bondage to sin and evil for all time. We need not struggle to maintain our relationship with God. He has made it simple for each of us to know the truth and walk it out in our personal lives. If we are willing and obedient, we will be saved to eternal life.

Psalm 65:3 “Iniquities prevail against me: [as for] our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.”

The human condition is a struggle at best. Although we were created in God's very own image and likeness, we have all inherited a propensity towards sin and evil. Our first parents were rebellious and we have followed in their footsteps. No matter how hard we try, we all make mistakes and miss the mark of true righteousness. Satan, the enemy of our souls, has had free reign in our lives.

We are subject to the bondage of sin and evil and oppressed in all of our efforts to become and remain sin free. We require deliverance from our plight that only God can provide. He has an eternal redemption plan in place that will benefit us in every way. If we submit ourselves to God and resist the devil, he will flee from us. We can overcome all of our human weakness and prevail over our sins.

The Lord will purge us of all wickedness and rebellion and draw us very near to Him if we give Him full access to our lives. If we cooperate with our sanctification, we will be totally cleansed of all iniquity. We will eventually be able to overcome the world, our flesh and the devil. We can appropriate the very righteousness of Jesus Christ Himself through faith and be redeemed for all time.

Galatians 3:22 “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.”

We are no longer subject to the Old Testament Law, by which no man could be made perfect. We do not have to offer the blood of animals to atone for our sins. We have the Blood of the Son of God Himself that covers us for all of our iniquity - past, present and future. Jesus died so that we do not have to suffer the pain and agony for our wickedness that we deserve. He was the total sacrifice required for all mankind.

Eternal life is available to each and every one of us who believe in His name. We have been set free from the law of sin and death and translated into the kingdom of light and life. Our righteousness has been bought and paid for by Christ's total obedience on our behalf. He was perfect in every way and completely sin-free, but He became sin for us, so that we could be delivered to eternal life with all its many benefits.

If we believe in Jesus Christ and accept Him as our personal Lord and Savior, we will be released from our bondage to sin and evil for all time. If we give Him free access to our lives, He will actually dwell in us so that we can become like Him in every way. We will have our minds renewed in the truth and our behavior transformed until it becomes godly. We will imitate His laid down life and develop into mature believers.

Isaiah 53:5 “But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”

Our redemption has been bought with a dear price - the Blood of the only begotten Son of almighty God Himself. He suffered and died an agonizing death, so that all of mankind could be delivered form their sins once and for all. The Lord imputes righteousness to us by our faith in Jesus Christ and we have inherited eternal life through all His efforts on our behalf.

Christ was human in all respects and like us in very way, but He conquered sin, death and the grave. He is our role model for holiness and perfection. Our redemption is total and complete and we must protect it at all costs. If we are diligent to follow His example, we will become the actual sons and daughters of almighty God Himself and walk in divine power.

We can no longer keep sinning or we make the sacrifice of Christ to no avail. We put ourselves back under the curse of death. We must pray and ask the Lord to permanently deliver us from all evil and its power over us. If we are diligent to confess all of our sins and fully commit ourselves to righteousness, we will be able to overcome all our weakness in the flesh.


Purged Of All Sins

Psalm 79:9 “Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake.”

If we are sincere and contrite for all of our sins, the Lord is willing to help us rid ourselves of all defilement. He will reveal all of our weaknesses to us and strengthen us to overcome all tendencies to sin and evil. He is compassionate to the human condition and knows that we often struggle with our faith. His Holy Spirit will convict us of all wrongdoing and lead and guide us into the truth.

The Lord is eminently capable of engineering our circumstances, so that we line up with His perfect will for our lives. He will purge and cleanse us until we reach the full stature of Jesus Christ Himself. If we cooperate with Him and willingly submit to His correction, we will be astonished in the changes in us. We will crucify our fleshly lusts and subdue our selfish souls until we become godly.

We are not alone in our plight. Each and every one of us has to work on our sanctification. We all fall short of God's glory and sin from time to time. Regardless of whether or not we have made Jesus Lord of our lives, we still have the sin issue to confront. If we ask the Lord for His help, He will assist us in our challenges. He will identify all that is lacking in us and give us grace in our efforts.

Hebrews 12:5-6 “And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.”

It is possible for us to ultimately overcome our sinful human nature and become holy and perfect, just as God is holy and perfect. The baptism in the Holy Spirit is essential to help us develop godly, spiritual characteristics and attributes that will produce good fruit in our lives. If we are patient with ourselves and confident in the Lord's ability to deliver us from evil, we will see miraculous results.

Our lives will become peaceful, stable and orderly, as we learn to grapple with our sin and overcome it. The Lord will point out areas that need improvement and encourage us to change. He will show us how proud He is that we are seeking His approval. He will boost our efforts by arranging our circumstances to line up with His perfect will for us. We will be totally amazed at our transformation.

Little by little, day by day, our God will lead us and guide us until we become His fully mature sons and daughters. He will purge and cleanse us of all unrighteousness, so that we can become sacred vessels for His use. We will ultimately be entrusted with divine power and authority, so we can embrace our divine destinies. The Lord will be totally confident in our ability to serve Him and His people.

Revelation 3:19 “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent”

Almighty God only chastens and rebukes those whom He truly loves. He reminds us that we are His very own sons and daughters and that He has high hopes for us. He has perfect, impeccable standards that are well within our reach, if we appropriate the righteousness of Christ and diligently work on becoming spiritually mature. We must repent from our heart of all known sin and renounce it for all time.

We should, additionally, keep all of the commandments, walk in love and fulfill the Lord's express will for our lives. We have divine destinies that must be embraced or many others will be lost in sin and darkness. We cannot be willfully disobedient or run the risk of God's displeasure. He wants us to cooperate with Him, so we can change the face of the entire earth and usher in the everlasting Kingdom of God.

That may seem like a stretch for many of us, but the Lord knows our full potential. He has created us in His very own image and likeness, so that we can reign now and in the world to come. He will imbue us with His very own divine power and authority to destroy all evil and overcome it with good. Nothing will be impossible to us, if we sanctify ourselves and consecrate all of our efforts to His holy purpose.

1Corinthians 1:30 “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:”

Through our faith in Christ, we can become righteous and remain sin free at all times and under all circumstances. We are brand new creatures in Him; we have been given a fresh start. Our minds are renewed in the truth and our behavior is transformed until we become like Him in every way. If we imitate His laid down life, we will gradually evolve into fully mature sons and daughters.

Christ actually dwells in us now that we are born again, and we can do all things in His strength. If we renounce all of our sinfulness and adequately prepare ourselves, He will be able to share His very own anointing with us. We will be empowered from on high to complete His ministry on this earth. We will preach the Gospel to every race, tongue and nation and set men free to eternal life.

We will release countless numbers from their bondage to sin and evil and baptize many in Jesus' name. We will heal the sick of all their diseases; cast out devils that oppress others; and even raise the dead back to life once again, as Jesus Christ did. We will tear down demonic strongholds that interfere with our work or impede our progress. We will assist the Lord in bring heaven itself to this earth.

The Body of Christ is comprised of all the faithful who have fully consecrated themselves for divine service to others. We will change the fate of all mankind in the critical days to come. We will warn them of the impending judgment and exhort them to repent of all their sins. We will confront all the wickedness that we see and encourage others to prepare their hearts for the return of Jesus Christ.


Covered By The Blood

1Peter 1:2 “Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.”

The Lord knew us from the foundation of the world and He predestined to be His very own sons and daughters. However, sin separated us from God and interrupted His original plan for our lives. The precious Blood of Jesus Christ purchased our redemption for us. Because of His perfect sacrifice on our behalf, we are set free to be all that we were called to be.

Through our faith, we are justified and made righteous. Our minds are renewed and our behavior is totally changed. We need no longer fear eternal punishment for our offenses. Our right standing with God has been fully restored. We are sanctified in the truth through the baptism of His Holy Spirit, so we can grow and mature until we reach the full stature of Christ Himself.

We must protect our righteousness at all times, and be obedient to do all that the Lord asks of us. We should obey all of His commandments and walk in love, as we have been taught. We need never be estranged from God ever again. When we do make mistakes, we have His grace available to us. If we are sincerely sorry for our sins, He will be quick to forgive us.

Ephesians 2:13 “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.”

While we were once estranged from God due to our iniquity and transgressions, we are now accepted as His beloved through the merits of the Blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. We have been restored to our right standing with our Creator through no effort of our own. Jesus did all the hard work for us. He suffered, died, was buried and rose again to defeat death for all of mankind.

He was the total sacrifice that was necessary for the remission of all of our sins for all time. Through faith in Him, we are redeemed from all of our sin guilt and joint-heirs to all the promises for righteousness. We can approach the throne of grace without fear, shame or condemnation and have all of our prayers heard. The Lord is ever faithful to respond to all our needs in abundance.

We are now entitled to the gift of eternal life with all of its many benefits. If we should ever sin and make mistakes after we have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, we must repent from the heart and ask for His forgiveness. Almighty God will be merciful and compassionate to us, and restore us to our right standing with Him once again. He will even blot our sins from His memory.

Hebrews 9:14 “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

The Blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us of all our sins - past, present and future. However, we can never take our salvation for granted. We have been bought with a dear price and we must remember all that He did for us. We are brand new creatures in Christ; the old man who was steeped in temptation and sin is gone for good. We have an obligation to protect our righteousness at all costs.

If we crucify our fleshly desires and subdue our selfish soul ambitions, we will be fully sanctified for the Lord's use. We must surrender our personal lives and submit ourselves to God. If we are consecrated to His holy purpose, He will imbue us with divine power and authority to serve Him and His people. We will be righteous role models to others and share our faith with zeal and enthusiasm.

We will gather in the full, end-time harvest of souls and baptize them in Jesus' name. The Lord will work through us to reach every man, woman and child in every race, tongue and nation. No one who is receptive to the Gospel message will be left behind. We will be willing and obedient to complete all that He assigns us to do. We will take back the entire earth for the everlasting Kingdom of God.

Revelation 1:5-6 “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, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

Christ actually dwells in us now through our faith, and we are covered by His Blood for all of our past transgressions. We are totally vindicated by His sacrificial offering on our behalf. He was the firstborn of many sons and daughters, and we are joint-heirs with Him to all the promises of God. He has appointed us to be kings and priests and we will rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world.

We are divinely consecrated now, and we have been given a sacred charge. We must rise up in our God-given power and authority and take back this earth for our Lord and Savior. He will soon return to receive His everlasting Kingdom from us, and we have to prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive their King. We must preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with a new fervor and baptize others in His name.

Everyone who is receptive to the truth will be born again and saved to eternal life. Those who reject us will be banished to never ending punishment in the unquenchable lake of fire. The righteous will shine with the light of God's glory and He will gather us into His awesome presence for all of eternity. There is no good thing that the Lord will ever withhold from His people, if we are obedient and walk in love.

He will take vengeance on all of our enemies and vindicate us before both men and angels. Our mortal bodies that are susceptible to disease and death will be changed into glorious, resurrection forms that live forever in good health and vitality. We will have peace and prosperity, joy and freedom, safety and security beyond all of our expectations. We will never be separated from our God ever again.


Sanctified In The Truth

John 17:17-22 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:”

The Lord plans on gathering a totally purified people to Himself in the everlasting Kingdom of God. He is not a God of compromise; He will tolerate no wickedness and evil to enter into His holy presence. If we wish to spend all of eternity with Him, we will have to sanctify ourselves of all defilement and become holy and perfect, just as He is holy and perfect.

That may seem like a daunting task for creatures which have a definite tendency towards sin and rebellion. However, if we ask for God's help in purging us of all our weakness in the flesh and selfishness of the soul, He will be merciful and compassionate to us. He will deliver us from the power of sin and strengthen us in our inner man, so that we can overcome all evil.

Jesus Christ always intercedes for us with His Father and reminds Him that we have been redeemed from all of our sinfulness. He will lead and guide us into paths of righteousness, so that we can be thoroughly cleansed of all our iniquity. If we imitate His laid down life, obey all the commandments and walk in love as He taught us, we will be continually righteous.

We must avoid all strife and division and maintain peace with God and with one another. We can neither take offense, nor give it. We should forgive all wrongs done to us, as God forgives us. In the critical days that lie ahead, it will be imperative that we walk in love and unity. There is strength in numbers, and we can accomplish a great deal through cooperation.

Ephesians 5:26-27 “That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”

We are the Body of Christ Himself on the earth, and we cannot afford to dabble in sin of any kind. We have divine destinies to fulfill and our Savior is returning for a totally pure and spotless church. Holiness is not an option for any of us, if we wish to spend all of eternity in His presence. We are future kings and priests of God and we must be righteous role models for others at all times.

We must be sanctified in the truth and cleansed of all defilement in spirit, soul and body. We will lead others to the Lord, Jesus Christ, and we have to be above and beyond approach in all that we think, say and do. The fate of all mankind rests with us, and we cannot be remiss in discharging any of our duties. We will share our faith with others and see many of them saved to eternal life.

We will heal the sick of all their afflictions; cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil; and even raise the dead back to life once again as Christ Himself did. We will confront all wickedness that we see, and remind men of the imminent judgment that will soon come on all of us. We will pray with those who are discouraged and exhort others in the truth of the Gospel message.

1Thessalonians 5:21-23 “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The followers of Jesus Christ will shine with His glory in the days to come. We will take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God. We will confront all world governments and urge them to end all wars, violence and conflict in our human affairs. We will bring peace, order and stability to the earth and eliminate all poverty and lack. There will be no more oppression or exploitation of others.

All men will be treated with fairness dignity and respect. We will heal all their diseases and turn many towards righteousness. We will learn to dwell together as brothers and sisters. We will overcome all evil with good and destroy demonic strongholds that interfere with our work. We will change the fate of the entire earth through our efforts and usher in the Kingdom of God, as we are destined to do.

The Lord, Jesus Christ, will be free to return to us to set up His rule and reign. We will put all of His enemies underneath His feet - including death. He will rid the world of all evil and banish Satan to the bottomless pit. Christ will judge all men, and even angels, to determine who will be rewarded and who will be punished for all eternity. He will cast all wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire.

The righteous will be gathered into the Kingdom of God to enjoy all of its blessings. There will be peace and prosperity for everyone. There will be no more death and destruction on the earth. Christ will rule with a rod of iron to make certain that we are all safe and secure from harm. We will have health and longevity in our new, resurrection bodies and see our offspring for all generations to come.


Perfected By Obedience

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

Our God is a consuming fire that should be reverentially feared at all times. He is capable of both creation and destruction. He created mankind in His very own image and likeness to be in close fellowship with Him for all of eternity. However, we have all sinned and fallen short of His glory. We have to repent and be restored to right standing with Him. We cannot be doing our own thing or that will lead to our demise.

Almighty God insists on perfect obedience in His children at all times and under all circumstances. He has cleansed us of all iniquity by the sacrifice of His very own Son, Jesus Christ, and He will not tolerate any sin in us. We have to make certain that we keep all of His commandments and adhere to all of His moral and spiritual guidelines. None of us dare to deliberately step out of line or we will be eternally punished.

The wages of sin are spiritual and physical death - plain and simple. If we purposely sin and violate God's laws, we will perish in our own ignorance and rebellion. When Christ returns, we will be strictly judged for all of our works in the flesh. If we have rebelled and purposely sinned, we will be forever banished to the unquenchable lake of fire. No wickedness or evil of any kind will ever enter into God's holy presence.

2Corinthians 10:5-6 “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.”

We have been bought with a dear price but we can never take our salvation for granted. We should look to our Lord, Jesus Christ, for guidance and direction. He will lead us into all righteousness in Him. We must learn to imitate His laid down life and become sincere, meek and humble in our approach to our heavenly Father. We should show Him deference and respect at all times and be quick to obey all that He asks of us.

Almighty God has perfect, impeccable standards for our behavior as His sons and daughters. We have to make certain that we are uncompromisingly righteous and walk in love at all times. The Lord doesn't ever take rebellion lightly. Everything that we think, say and do will have to line up with God's will for our lives or we will suffer reprisal. We have eternal destinies to fulfill that require us to be totally obedient.

If we are diligent to do all that is required of us in the critical days ahead, we will receive generous rewards for our faithfulness. The Lord will appoint us kings and priests in His everlasting Kingdom on this earth. We will share in Christ's very own honor and glory, and teach all of mankind how to dwell in love, peace and unity as brothers and sisters. We will even rule and reign with Jesus over all the nations of the world.

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.”

As brand new creatures in Christ; we can do all things through Him, to include being fully obedient to God at all times. It is possible for us to forego all the temptations that we incur and become holy and perfect, just as He is holy and perfect. If we set our minds on things above rather than mundane matters, we will be successful in overcoming the world, our flesh and the devil.

We will be sanctified for the Lord's use and lead many others out of darkness and deception. We will be godly role models in all we think, say and do. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and baptize countless numbers in Jesus' name. We will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. We will cast out demons that keep others in bondage to sin and evil.

The power and authority of almighty God Himself will be available to us, and we will even raise the dead back to life once again, as Christ did when He walked the earth. Nothing will be impossible to us. We will walk in the supernatural realm and work miracles on a regular basis. The fate of the entire earth will be altered and we will usher in the everlasting Kingdom of God.

2 Corinthians 7:1“Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

Very soon now, the Lord will gather all the faithful to Himself for all of eternity. He will actually come and dwell with His beloved sons and daughters, as He has always desired. However, no wickedness and evil can ever enter into His holy presence. We will have to make absolutely certain that we are cleansed of all unrighteousness or we will never see our God.

If we have a wholesome fear of the Lord and show Him the deference and respect that He deserves, He will do all that He can to assist us in our efforts to remain righteous in His eyes. He will deliver us from our temptation to sin and protect us from all evil. We will be strengthened in our inner man, so that we develop the spiritual maturity of Jesus Christ Himself.

We will have to crucify all the desires of our flesh and forego all selfishness of the soul. The Lord insists on our total obedience to all of His commandments. We can never compromise any of His moral absolutes. It is also imperative that we walk in love at all times and under all circumstances. We should strive to be holy and perfect, even as God is holy and perfect.

There are tremendous rewards that await us for all of our efforts. The Lord will take vengeance on all of our enemies and protect us from all harm. He will supply all our needs in abundance even before we ask Him. He will change our mortal bodies into glorious, resurrection forms that never get sick and die. We will live forever in a literal paradise on this earth.


Rooted And Grounded In Love

Mark 12:30-31 “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment. And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.”

Jesus Christ did not come to this earth to condemn mankind; He came to save us to eternal life and teach us God's way of doing things. He did not abolish the Old Testament Law; He fulfilled it in its entirety. Our Lord and Savior taught us that we must put almighty God above all things, and love one another, as we love ourselves, under all situations and circumstances.

All of the Ten Commandments can be summed up in these two - love of God and love of neighbor. We can never compromise our love walk and remain righteous. We must show God all the deference and respect that He deserves and have a sincere love for Him. We must regard others, as we do ourselves, and demonstrate affection in all of our dealings with them.

Love is merciful and kind, and bears all things. We can never deliberately step out of love without serious repercussions. We must always remember that our God has a deep, abiding love for us and that He expects us to imitate that in all of our relationships. We should keep others' needs on an even plane with our own, and do all that we can to assist one another at all times.

1John 4:15-17 “Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.”

Christ was the epitome of human love to all of mankind. He came to spare us the wrath of God and show us His deep, abiding affection for us. Jesus actually laid down His very own life, so that we could be saved from the penalty of death ourselves. There is no greater love than that. If we have accepted Him as Lord and Savior, then He actually dwells in us as love.

The Lord insists that we give Him deference and respect and show genuine regard for one another at all times. Love is the literal fulfillment of the Ten Commandments on a practical basis. If we love God and one another, we will never transgress any of the law. Disobedience offends God and hurts others; it should be intolerable to any of us if we have sincere love.

Jesus Christ was the firstborn of many sons and daughters who will be perfected in love in the days to come. We will be motivated to serve the Lord and His people with real zeal and enthusiasm. We will share one another's joys and bear one another's burdens, as the law of love requires. We will all learn to dwell together in love, peace and unity as brothers.

Ephesians 3:17-21 “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him [be] glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”

We are truly blessed to be born again in our spirits. We know the truth; God is love and if we walk in love He actually dwells in our mortal bodies and is the source of all good things in our lives. There is nothing that is impossible to us, if we protect our righteousness and are obedient to all that the Lord asks of us. We are filled with all the fullness of almighty God Himself through our faith in Jesus Christ.

We can fulfill our divine destinies as His children if we obey all the commandments and love one another as He has loved us. We will rise up in our kingly and priestly anointing and help Him minister to all of mankind. We will deliver others from their bondage to sin and evil and teach them God's ways. We spread our faith and see others saved to eternal life through all our efforts on their behalf.

We can change the fate of the entire earth if we are diligent to do all that the Lord requires of us. We will confront all world governments and establish godly principles of fairness and justice. We will abolish all forms of oppression and exploitation and make certain that all men are treated with dignity and respect. We will eradicate poverty and lack and ensure that the needs of all mankind are addressed.

We will bring peace, order and stability to all of creation through the very words that we speak that line up with those of almighty God. We will command harmony in the plant and animal kingdoms and rid the world of all the contaminating effects of pollution. We will speak to the climate, so that there are no more natural disasters that cause devastation and destruction that threaten any of God's creatures.

2Corinthians 13:11 “Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.”

All the world will ultimately be at peace even before Christ returns to us. We will eliminate all sources of strife and division among us. There will be no more wars, violence or conflict, that injure any of us ever again. We will teach all of mankind to dwell together as brothers and sisters or run the risk of expulsion from the Kingdom of God for their lack of love. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be pleased with us and return to the earth to commence His rule and reign.

He will make certain that there is no evil or defilement anywhere on the face of the earth. He will banish Satan and all of his minions to the bottomless pit and cast all wrongdoers into the unquenchable lake of fire. We will have total safety and security in His awesome presence. He will eliminate all disease and death and give us new, glorious, resurrection bodies that live forever. There will be health and longevity, peace and prosperity, joy and freedom for all the righteous.

We will share in Christ's very own honor and glory and even judge both men and angels, just as He does. He will appoint us kings and priests of God, so that we can rule and reign with Him over all the nations of the world. Our heavenly Father will boast of us to all creation as His very own sons and daughters, and we will be given the heathen and the uttermost parts of the earth as an eternal inheritance. The Lord will take an active interest in all the details of our personal lives.


Vessels of Honor

2Timothy 2:19-21 “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. 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.”

We were formed in the very image and likeness of almighty God Himself and predestined to greatness. He knows who we are and He is ardent in His desire to see us succeed in all that we do. If we cooperate with His purging fire and allow Him full access to our lives, we will be sanctified to the point that we are indeed holy and perfect, just as God is holy and perfect.

The Lord has a divine destiny in mind for each of us. We are His very own sons and daughters and He will be glorified in us in the critical days to come. We will change the fate of all mankind and take back the entire earth for the Kingdom of God. Nothing will be impossible to us because the Lord's favor and grace will accompany us in all that we do on His behalf.

His very own power and authority will be imparted to us to discharge all of our duties. We will intercede for the whole human race and confront all wickedness that we see. We will preach the Gospel and baptize others in Jesus' name. We will heal the sick and cast out demons that hold men in bondage to sin and evil.

We will even raise the dead back to life once again.

1Thessalonians 4:4 “That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;”

We are a special people that have been created for a time such as this. We will implement the Lord's eternal redemption plan for all of mankind. We must be above and beyond reproach in all that we think, say and do. Everyone will be looking to us for godly example and instruction in righteousness. We will have to be cleansed of all filthiness of the flesh and selfishness of our souls.

The Lord will assist us in the sanctification process if we cooperate with all that He asks of us. He will groom and prepare us to act on His behalf in serving Him and His people. We will be given an anointing much like Jesus Christ Himself had when He walked the earth. It will be extremely important for us to remain loving and obedient at all times and under all circumstances we face.

We are the Body of Christ Himself on the earth, and we will resume His ministry where He left off. We cannot permit strife and division to separate us from one another. The Lord insists that there be peace and unity among us, so that we can optimally represent Him to others. We must resolve all our differences and work together to complete His plans; the fate of the entire world rests with us.

2Corinthians 4:7 “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”

We cannot escape our divine destinies. The Lord has sought us out and redeemed us for a very special purpose. We are vessels of honor, cleansed and purged for His use in these last days. He will imbue us with divine power and authority to act in His stead. We will revolutionize the whole world and prepare the hearts of all mankind to receive Jesus Christ as their King.

If we are totally sanctified, we will be the perfect ambassadors for the Kingdom of God. We will challenge all world governments to align with godly principles of fairness and justice for all. We will eliminate all wars, violence and conflict off the face of the earth. Poverty and lack will no longer plague mankind; we will convince all men to share what they have with others.

We will speak to all of creation and make certain that it is restored to its original peace, order and stability. There will be no more natural disasters that plague mankind and cause devastation and destruction. The climate will be regulated until it is temperate and predictable. All forms of pollution will be reversed. The plants and animals will be in harmony with one another.

The fate of the entire planet will be altered if we take our sacred charge seriously. We will assist the Lord in bringing heaven itself to the earth realm, as He so earnestly desires. He will gather the faithful to Himself for all of eternity, and we will dwell in His presence in a literal paradise. We will enjoy peace and prosperity, health and longevity, joy and freedom forever.

Exodus 30:29 “And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy: whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy”

If we are faithful to cleanse ourselves of all defilement and worldly lusts in the critical days ahead, the Lord can empower us to serve Him in ways that we have only imagined were possible. We will be appointed as kings and priests of almighty God to serve Him and His people in this world and in the everlasting Kingdom to come. All divine power and authority will be available to us.

However, we cannot be slack in anything that we think, say and do. Both God and man will be scrutinizing us to see if we live up to holy standards of performance. We will have to take our love walk and obedience to a brand new level. It will be imperative that we act just as Jesus Christ did on this earth. He is our role model for righteousness and we should always imitate His laid down life.

We are the actual Body of Christ on this earth - His very own hands, feet and voice. We represent Him as our Lord and Savior in everything that we do. We should permit the Lord to direct and guide us, so that we can discharge all of our duties to perfection. We will lead others by example and make the gift of eternal life available to every man, woman and child in every nation of the world.

The fate of all mankind will be positively impacted through our efforts. We will intercede for others on a regular basis and encourage them to seek the Lord and all of His promises for righteousness. We will urge all those we meet to repent of all their sins and believe in Jesus Christ and all that He did for us. We will overcome all evil with good and release others from bondage to sin and evil.
