  1. I say this in very simple terms as I read it. Behold I come quickly. Means we must live ready for his coming. and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. This refers to the judgment seat of Christ where we as believers shall be judge of our works and rewarded accordingly . We must diligent to do the works we are called to do. Age of grace does we sit on our hands.
  2. Well Jesus said where two or three are gathered in His name there I am in the mist. Im sure the Lord honors such loyalty to endure adversity and still being faithful. May the Lord bless all of you.
  3. The question was asked "who Am I " Traditional church is mostly centered on the family, but would you go for yourself if no one else was there. Your friends moved away and the family went on vacation. What is your faith truly built on. I don't believe I will get many answers so I hope it is food for thought Who is Jesus to you?

    Reading your Bible

    How much time we spend with Jesus and Gods word is a measure of love and devotion. I have 2 devotionals with scripture, I read them every day after praying. I am not trying to boast Im just saying. Just going to church on Sunday won't cut it. Again Just saying.

    I bought lottery tickets

    God knows every thought and motive. He knows every need. Many times he will give us what we want. Still I would not want winning the lottery to become a way of life. Be wise, it is not you money. He may ask you to make a very hard choice. The rich young ruler made a bad choice.

    Lonely Christian

    I am not a lone wolf. I have fellowship. I need to be around other believers I am a non denominationalist but I attend a small Baptist church that is close by. I don't go to be a Baptist or any other traditional church. My greatest strength is spending time With my Lord. I am with the body of Christ right here an now.

    Hear is what many believers do. They think they must do his work in some way. A worthy ideal, andI did the very thing you think will please. I got a very rude awakening He never told me to do that. It was all about me and a pat on the back. God will still use us if we just walk the walk and let him show us how to please Him I thought about the two greatest commandments. " Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all your heart mind and soul. and seconed love thy neighbor as thy self. If we just do this we will please Him

    Does God Get what He desires?

    Philippians 1:6 Being confident in this very thing that he who has begun a good work in you will perform it unto the day of Jesus Christ.
  9. Pray for him yes but the damage is already done. Don't pray that world shall change for Christ. The world being antichrist will not change. The law has already made perversion the law of the land

    Thank you for that. Yes we are all priests and kings when we strive to live for Christ. and the first thing we must learn is humility and worshiping God in spirit and in truth.

    Sinlessness.

    I should have started at the beginning. My point was that even when we have come to Christ we will still struggle. I say it from personal experience, but as Paul said I strive for the mark in the high calling of Christ Jesus. Be blessed In Him 😉
  12. I want to believe there is always hope. Today we live in a gospel hardened society. Christian churches on every corner. They all have heard it before so you can't go street preaching. At the same time people must know your faith and see you walk as unshakable and true. God knows who will be drawn to Christ and we can only pray, show our love by our actions more than words

    Are you holy ? Are you pure? On the day of the judgment seat of Christ could you confess that. How do we stay pure and Holy? There is a way but do you know what it is.? This by no means that one lives in perfectness Hint --- Blessed are those who HUNGER AND THIRST after righteousness for they shall be filled. Do we seek after it everyday? Do we seek to spend time with Jesus everyday? Do we ask Him to help us every day? God bless

    Im not sure what it is you would like to know. An advocate is one who stands in or speaks for another 1 John 2:1 My little children these things I write unto you that you sin not, and if any man sin we have an advocate with the Father Jesus Christ the righteous. we are admonished not to sin but if we slip and sin Jesus stands in for us because we are washed in His blood. Go back to 1John 1: 7-9 If we walk in the light as he is in the light we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin we lie and the truth is not in us . If we confess our sin he is faith and just to forgive us our sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. There is verses that say we don't sin, but some mistake these verses. It is clear that the verses I shared tell us we do sin and need Jesus to be our advocate. Hebrews 4: 15,16 for we do not have a high priest which cannot be touched with feeling of our infirmities, but in all points tempted like as we are , yet without sin.Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. I pray this helps to understand what I have already expressed about our advocate with the Father

    Thank God for Jesus our advocate. No man is sinless just as no man is able to keep the law. This is not that we have an excuse to sin but we will all fail perfection. We are striving for the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus
