Psalm 89:26 says, “He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation’” (NKJV). Many other religions acknowledge that Jesus was a good teacher, but they strip Him of His Deity. With the Word of God as our source, we can see that Jesus is just as much God as the Father and Spirit. In Phil. 2:5-11 Paul gives us a very clear picture of Jesus’ deity “Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be used for His own advantage…” (NLT).
These, according to Jesus, are the two great commandments given for us to follow. God has given us directives to live by that have nothing to do with a church. Ecclesiastes 12:13 tells us “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man”. Do you see any mention here about any church in the “conclusion of the whole matter”? What do you think the “whole matter” is?
Because of the consistencies between these prophets’ strongly emphasized messages, they would add two commandments to the original ten: Repent to the Lord your God, for He will show mercy and compassion to your iniquities and let your actions be filled with good intention and conscious, for any action without any meaning behind it is useless. The first new commandment, repent to the Lord your God, for He will show mercy and compassion to your iniquities, is a common theme found in the prophetic books of the Hebrew Bible. The book of Hosea, for example, is “designed to call upon Israel to return to the Lord” (New Interpreters’ Study Bible, Sweeny 1256). Hosea uses his marriage as a symbol to the people of Israel to reveal that they are straying away from the God that created them. Hosea’s most general message to the people of Israel lies in repentance, highlighting that the answer to any problem is to turn back to the Lord.
The entire body of Christ in worship (1Cor 11:17 - 22) In these entire six verses the Apostle Paul sharply address the issue of division in the Corinthian church. The Apostle begins with sobering words 11:17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse.
I feel insecure and have concerns. However, Scripture encourages me that even at the end of my days, the love of God will not leave me alone as "[He is] with me" (Psalm 23:4). It is the presence of God that provides me with security throughout my life, even at the time of my death. Also I realize that my relationship with God will not just end at my death, but it is forever, as John 10:28 says "I give them eternal life". Jesus comforts us in John 14:1-3 that we are going to a place, heaven, which Jesus has prepared for us.
He will not leave you nor forsake you.” God wants us to be courageous through him; to not fear anything. In Matthew 14:27- It says that Jesus told them to “be of good cheer” (not be fearful) and to not be afraid since it is He who is with them. In Joshua 1:9- God tells them that He has commanded them to be strong and courageous. God doesn’t want us to be frightened or dismayed, because He is with us everywhere. He wants us to be afraid of nothing but Him.
What Scripture says For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12, NLT) Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’” Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him. (Matthew 4:10-11, NIV) So, my dear children, don’t let anyone divert you from the truth. It’s the person who acts right who is right, just as we see it lived out in our righteous Messiah.
But do this with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15). An opportunity may arise where I may be able to share my faith, or God may use me or someone else to lead the patient to Him. I may just be able to be proof of God’s love, and that is a remarkable thing. In conclusion, it can be difficult to meet someone’s religious, especially if they differ from my own. Research and do not just provide care based on assumptions.
God sent supernatural messengers to conduct this chosen family to safety, he could have given them dreams to follow or a visiting prophet with instructions but he gave them the best; angels. She tired, fell behind, forsook the right path and ended up with her final disobedient act, “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.” (Genesis 19: 17). She looked back, she said no to God for the final time; the Spirit of God took flight and she was
CHAPTER FIVE BENEFITS OF THE LORD RIGHTEOUSNESS There are a lot we can drive from relying on the righteousness of the Lord; but we would take a look at few in this handbook. POWER OVER SIN: Any one born of have the righteousness of God and having the righteousness is having the seed of God, the seed of God produces the kind of God and since God can not sin, so His produce or the outcome of the seed in you can not be sin. I was one day teaching in the Home cell where I was privilege to head; and said “A Christian does not sin then was this woman said “don’t spoil my children, you will say that and they go out messing about”” you see this woman did not wait to understand from the scriptures why a Christian can’t sin. John said “We know [absolutely]
