The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

“I can’t do this on my own”

WHEN LIFE IS TOO HARD TO HANDLE, LIFE HARDSHIPS For some odd reason when people become Christian they think they are signing up for some kind of special club. One where God is the owner and He provides each person with benefits of a life filled with abundant riches and joy.

What they don’t realize is that they are actually signing up for war.

The day you declare that Christ is your Lord and Savior and that you will live your life to glorify Him is the day you are putting a big red target on your back.

It’s the day that whether you like it or not, you must put on not fancy clothes but battle gear.

Because there is an enemy out there who has set out to destroy you.

To make you feel helpless and alone.

To steal your hope and your joy.

To distract you from the real meaning of life.

Abide In Him

“The one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.” 1 John 3:24 (NASB)

It is a great thing to come to Christ; it is the turning point of life. And it is a great thing to abide in Him in the storm and conflicts and terrors of the world.
It is a great thing to come to Christ; it is a great thing to abide in Him; but from His point of view the object of our coming and of our abiding is that we should go. He wants us as His messengers — as His fellow-messengers. His purpose is that, abiding in Him, we should bear the fruit which is for the healing of the nations; that we should be the communicators of the light which shines upon the people who sit in darkness and in the shadows of death. If I do not go, I am like an untimely birth, or I am like a seed which has rotted in the ground. He bade me come, He encouraged me to abide in order that I might go.

The Gospel According To Jesus – Part 24

bible
“Every kingdom divided against itself is headed for destruction, and no city or house divided against itself will stand. If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, who is it your sons drive them out by? For this reason they will be your judges. If I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you. How can someone enter a strong man’s house and steal his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can rob his house.
Anyone who is not with Me is against Me, and anyone who does not gather with Me scatters. Because of this, I tell you, people will be forgiven every sin and blasphemy, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him. But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the one to come.”
Matthew 12:25-32 (HCSB)
