"GRACE AND HOLINESS"
Your responses and
comments are always welcome.
Every Time you make a decision, you will trade one thing for something else. GOD SAID: "I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU LIFE AND DEATH, BLESSING AND CURSING; THEREFORE CHOOSE LIFE THAT BOTH YOU AND YOUR SEED MAY LIVE ." Deuteronomy 10:19b
OBEDIENCE TO GOD IS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS! John 15:1-7
Just as the GIFT OF REPENTANCE is given by God Himself (John 6:44, 65), so is OBEDIENCE TO GOD! THIS IS A GIFT FROM GOD HIMSELF THAT MAN CANNOT PRODUCE IN HIS OWN POWER. Romans 3:10-18
OBEDIENCE TO GOD is ONLY PRODUCED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT! Hebrews 8:1-13
The first Covenant with Israel was built upon FEAR OF PUNISHMENT! Jeremiah 31:31-34
THE FIRST COVENANT WAS BASED UPON FEAR -- A FLESH COVENANT!
THE SECOND COVENANT IS BASED UPON AGAPE LOVE -- A SPIRITUAL COVENANT! I Corinthians 2:1-16
Understand this: DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT! Ephesians 4:30
Unbelievers are bound by the Devil and his demons: Matthew 12:25-29
Satan attacks the believers in Christ by attacking their anointing and their position in the Kingdom of God. I Peter 5:5-9; Luke 22:25-32
Understand this: YOU MAY KNOW ALL OF GOD'S COMMANDMENTS, BUT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE GIFT OF OBEDIENCE, IT WILL DO YOU NO GOOD! Hebrews 12:14-29
God rules the unbelievers and Christians who break his law with the sword! Romans 13:1-7
Are you in Church today because you love God or because you are seeking a blessing?
Are you staying away from sinful habits because you fear God, or because you love Him?
A marriage that is held together by financial gains, or for the sake of children, is a union of hell, which brings nothing but strife and sorrow over and over again. The Bible tells us that Jesus is the bridegroom and we are the bride. Revelation 19:1-9
Examine yourself today. Do you really love Jesus, or did you get saved just to escape hell while having no intention of giving up your rebellious heart? John 21:15-17.
Do you have an ear with which to hear?
