MARK 9:23 – JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, IF THOU CANST BELIEVE, ALL THINGS ARE POSSSIBLE TO HIM THAT BELIEVETH.
LIMITED FAITH IS MOTIVATED BY FEAR AND UNBELIEF.
LIMITED FAITH RESTRICTS THE POWER OF GOD.
LIMITED FAITH IS CONTROLLED BY CIRCUMSTANCES.
LIMITED FAITH DOESN’T RESIST OR FIGHT FOR THE PROMISES OF GOD, IT JUST LAYS DOWN AND DIES.
FAITH IS PRODUCED BY GOD’S WORD AND IS UNLIMITED, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE. ANYTHING THAT IS GOD’S WILL FOR US BELONGS TO US.
FAITH RELEASES THE ANIONTING AND ALSO FAITH RELEASES ANGELS.
THE FATHER OF THE DEMON POSSESSED CHILD SAID, LORD I BELIEVE YOU CAN DELIVER MY CHILD, BUT HELP MY UNBELIEF.
WE ALL HAVE UNBELIEF, BUT JESUS CAN HELP US OVERCOME OUR UNBELIEF.
IF WE GET FULL, AND STAY FULL OF THE LORD, UNBELIEF WILL DISAPPEAR AND FAITH WILL APPEAR.
IN THE BOOK OF ACTS WE READ OF A MAN CALLED STEPHEN, WHO WAS FULL OF THE HOLY GHOST AND FAITH. THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR UNBELIEF IN THIS MAN’S LIFE.
HE PREACHED WITH SUCH POWER, HIS SERMON’S WERE FULL OF THE WORD OF GOD. WE CAN UNDERSTAND HOW HE GOT FULL OF FAITH AND POWER, HE WAS FULL OF THE WORD OF GOD.
THE WORD OF GOD AND PRAYER FILLS OUR LIFE WITH FAITH AND POWER, A FIRE BURNS IN OUR HEARTS, A PASSION FOR MORE OF THE LORD. SO STRONG THAT THERE IS NO ROOM FOR UNBELIEF OR LIMITED FAITH. THE FIRE OF FAITH AND POWER THAT CREATES AN ATMOSPHERE FOR GREAT WONDERS AND MIRACLES.
WE CAN BE BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY GHOST AND POWER, THAT GIVES US A PASSION FOR PRAYER, WORD, AND WORSHIP.
DON’T LIMIT HOW MUCH OF GOD IS IN YOUR LIFE, LET’S BE LIKE STEPHEN: FULL OF FAITH AND POWER. WE MEASURE OUT HOW MUCH ANOINTING WE HAVE IN OUR LIFE.
GOD MAKES HIS PRESENCE AND POWER AND FAITH AVAILABE TO US, WE MEASURE OUT HOW MUCH WE WANT: WE CHOOSE.
I DESIRE HOLY GHOST FIRE TO SET THE CAPTIVE FREE, AND TO STAY FREE MYSELF: FULL OF FAITH AND POWER.
There are many times in the book of Revelation, where we are instructed to endure to the end. Today we are going to discuss endurance out of the account of Mark four. For those who are not familiar with this text: Jesus is the sewer and the Word of God is the seed. We are the soil.
Whether we are the good ground or the stony:
is up to us.
Mark 4: 16,17 —- And these are they likewise which are sown
on stony ground; who, when they have heard the Word, immediately receive it
And have not root in themselves, and so
endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction (or hardship, trouble) or
persecution ( or torture or oppression) ariseth
for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended.
Many of us have gotten a
glimpse of heaven in a mighty service or a revelation from God in our private
time with Him. The word we received was
alive to us and in us. We knew it was
just what we needed. Everything was so
clear: God had it all under control, and we were in His hands. Nothing could shake that. It was settled. But then, afterward, when
affliction or sorrow or persecution arose, because of the Word, we immediately
become offended, displeased, indignant, and resentful. Our affections are divided. We had more of the rocky than the good soil
in our hearts. No wonder we could not
endure. The Word of God could not strike
a deep root in our souls.
This is when we were not
constant in the faith; and in our hour of temptation, we faltered.
I see this so much among
believers. They are rooted in the
Word. They didn’t take what Word they
got, and meditate on it until it could get down in their spirit man. It seemed to only help the hour or the day
they heard it. Then, BOOM! It was gone.
Brothers and sisters, we
have all been there.
Getting rooted and grounded
The Word has to become alive
in our spirits to produce faith to endure.
We have to speak it everyday; eat and digest it, so to speak.
You could say, “I spoke the
Word over Aunt Lucy, but she died. The Word don’t work”.
Our Lord warns, we will
encounter such cases, which first excite hope, and expectation, and then clouds
the soul of the Christian laborer with disappointment and grief.
The Word in us is supposed
to produce fruit. But to endure, we have
to prepare the soil.
How do we prepare the soil?
Look at Matthew 13:19-21
—- When anyone heareth the word of the
kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one (Satan) and catcheth away that which was sown in his
heart. This is he which received seed by
But he that received the seed into stony
places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon (or in a while) with joy
Yet hath he not root in himself, but
dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the
word. By and by he is offended.
account in Matthew we see this same story which we know as the Parable Of The
Sower. We know Satan is the one who
steals the Word, and we know He is the one who causes trials and persecution.
WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH SATAN’S
So, to prepare the soil, we
have to deal with Satan’s attacks. He
comes immediately to rob from us, the Word we received with joy.
It’s no wonder he hates the
Word of God, and does all in his power to steal it from us.
Look at what Psalm 119:105
has to say about the Word:
word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
It shines like a light on my feet and directs
them where to go. It keeps us from
Verse 11 —– Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might
not sin against Thee.
Acts 17:11 —- These were more noble than those in
Thessalonica, in that they (talking about the Jews in the synagogue at
Berea) received the word with all
readiness of mind (or we could say with a ready-mind), and searched the scriptures daily , whether those things were so (or
The word shows us what is
true and what is error.
We could go on to John 17:17
were we are told we are sanctified through God’s truth, because His word is
truth: That God will , through His word,
set us apart to Himself.
In II Timothy 3:15,16, we
find the word is …able to make us wise
unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
And that it is
God-breathed …and is profitable for
doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
God reveals Himself through
His word; and in it, He shows us how we
are to live after we become a Christian.
His word has an authority
which far reverses the ambition for greatness seen in secular philosophers.
And I Peter 2:2,3 tells us,
His word causes us to grow up in Him.
And Joshua 1:8 —- This book of the law shall not depart out of
thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate
therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all
that is written therein: for then thou
shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
In this verse alone, we are
told we can be prosperous and successful if
We speak the Word
We meditate the Word day and night
We do what it says
It’s no wonder the devil wants to steal it!
Jesus used the Word against
Satan. During His temptation in the
wilderness, Jesus said, “It is written, It is written, It is written,” after
which, Satan left Him for a season.
We are instructed also, in
Mark 16, to use the name of Jesus. He
has given us that authority. Look at
verse 17a —- And these signs shall
follow them that believe: In My name they shall cast out devils;…
This is one of the last
instructions given by Jesus before He ascended into heaven, —– and verse 20
reads like this —-And they went forth,
and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word
with signs following. Amen.
They were not alone in their
commission, this verse says the Lord was working with them. Also we see here, that
signs follow the word.
DON’T GET DISTRACTED, STUDY THE
Another way to prepare the
soil, for the Word is not to let distractions, around us, keep us from studying
the Word of God.
II Timothy 2:15 —- Study to show thyself approved unto God, a
workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
It is not enough to read and
study the Word, we have to be able to know how to use it.
USE THE WORD AGAINST SATAN
Jesus knew which part of the
Word to use against Satan during His temptation. He quoted the Scripture that fir the
Look at Matthew 4 starting
with verse 1
was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
And when He had fasted forty days and
forty and forty nights, He was afterward
And when the tempter came to Him, He
said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
But He answered and said, It is written,
Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the
mouth of God.
THEN Satan did a strange
thing: He quoted a Scripture to Jesus: verse 6 —- And saith unto Him, If thou be the Son of God, cast Thyself down: for
it is written,
shall give His angels charge concerning thee;
and in their hands they shall bear the
lest at any time thou dash thy foot
against a stone.
Now, let’s read that verse
from the Old Testament, from which He is Quoting, Psalm 91:11 —- For He shall give His angels charge over
thee, to keep thee in all thy ways …
He left out that last
part. Why? Look at it again …. to keep thee in all thy ways…—-
Because the omission of this sentence alters the whole character of the
quotation, taking into account that the word, ways, implies ways
appointed by God.
Then once again, the devil
tempted Jesus; and once again Jesus used the Word of God against him.
In the next part to this
temptation of Christ, Satan said in verse8 and 9
—-Again, the devil taketh Him up into an exceeding high mountain, and
showeth Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and
Verse 10 —- Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hense (or
be gone!), Satan: For it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord
thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.
Ten, in verse 11, the devil
left Him, and angels came and ministered unto Him.
Jesus was tempted on three
Each of which, He won, using the Word of God.
He quoted the right Scripture for each attack.
He knew how to combat every blow.
If we know the Word, we should know who we are in Christ. This will give us an advantage over the enemy
of our soul.
If we know the Word, we know our future.
If we know the Word, we know God will always fight our battles, and
bring us the victory.
If we know the Word, we know Satan’s future. Aso it would be good to remind him and
ourselves, of this fact.
Say it with me,
“Satan, your kingdom is
“The blood of Jesus is
“I can do all things
through Christ which strengthenth me.”
“No weapon formed against
me shall prosper”
and on and on, we can go.
All of God’s children go through attacks of Satan, trying to steal the life
out of us: which is God’s Word; but isn’t it wonderful, that when we are rooted
and grounded in the Word, we can endure until the end.
At that point, he will never again cause us to doubt God and His word,
nor can he steal from us.
I will leave you with these last two verses:
Romans 8:31b —- …If God be for us, who can be against us?
Isaiah 40:8 —- The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but
the Word of our God shall stand forever. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Bless the name of the Lord!!!!
NUMBERS 13: 30-33 AND CALEB STILLED THE PEOPLE BEFORE MOSES, AND SAID LET US GO UP AT ONCE, AND POSSESS IT; FOR WE ARE ABLE TO OVERCOME IT.
BUT THE MEN THAT WENT UP WITH HIM SAID, WE BE NOT ABLE TO GO UP AGAINEST THE PEOPLE; FOR THEY ARE STRONGER THAN WE.
AND THEY BROUGHT UP AND EVIL REPORT OF THE LAND WHICH THEY HAD SEARCHED UNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, SAYING, THE LAND, THROUGH WHICH WE HAVE GONE TO SEARCH IT, IS LAND THAT EATETH UP THE INHABITANTS THEROF; AND ALL THE PEOPLE THAT WE SAW IN IT ARE MEN OF GREAT STATURE.
AND THERE WE SAW THE GAINTS, THE SONS OF ANAK, WHICH COME OF THE GAINTS; AND WE WERE IN OUR OWN SIGHT AS GRASSHOPPERS, AND SO WE WERE IN THEIR SIGHT.
THE HARDEST MILE TO RUN IN A MARATHON RACE IS THE LAST MILE.
HERE WE SEE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, WHO SAW THE JUDGEMENT OF GOD COME ON PHARAOH. THEY SAW THE POWER OF GOD MANIFEST IN SIGNS AND WONDERS.
THEY SAW JEHOVAH GOD, PART THE RED SEA AND BRING THEM ACROSS ON DRY GROUND.
BUT AT THE ENTRANCE INTO THE PROMISED LAND THEY STOPPED SHORT.
THEY WERE AT THE DOOR AND GAVE UP.
FEAR AND UNBELIEF CAUSED THEM TO SEE THEMSELVES UNABLE TO ENTER INTO THE PROMISE.
JESUS NEVER PROMISED IT WOULD BE EASY TO OBEY HIM.
HE NEVER PROMISED THAT WE WOULD NOT FACE GAINTS IN THE LAND.
THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL DID TO MUCH THINKING AND TALKING ABOUT WHAT THEY SAW, INSTEAD OF WHAT GOD SAID.
GOD NEVER USED THE WORD FAILURE, FEAR, UNBELIEF. GOD HAD THE GRACE AVAILABLE, HE HAD ANGELS THERE TO HELP.
SAMSON KILLED ONE THOUSAND PHILISTINES WITH A JAWBONE OF A DONKEY.
GIDEON CONQUERED THE ENEMY WITH A SMALL ARMY.
HOW DID THESE THINGS HAPPEN? IF GOD BE FOR YOU WHO CAN BE AGAINEST YOU.
I HAVE RUN MANY RACES FOLLOWING GOD’S WILL AND PURPOSE, THE LAST MILE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE PLACE THE DEVIL TRIED TO GET ME TO GIVE UP. JUST BEFORE THE FINISH OF SOMETHING THE DEVIL WILL THROW THE BIGGEST DEVILS AT YOU.
HE WILL TRY FEAR, DISCOURAGEMENT, DISAPPOINTMENTS, REJECTION FROM PEOPLE, CRITICISM. YOUR VISION WILL BE QUESTIONED BY OTHERS. YOUR MOTIVATES WILL BE QUESTIONED, AND IF THE DEVIL GETS REAL MAD, YOUR CHARACTER WILL EVEN BE QUESTIONED.
KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS AND THE MISSION YOU ARE ON, DON’T TRY TO JUSTIFY YOUR CALL FROM GOD.
THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE PROMISES FROM GOD, TO TAKE YOU TO VICTORY WILL KEEP YOUR VISION ALIVE AND YOU WILL NOT GIVE UP RUNNING THE LAST MILE.
REMEMBER THE LAST MILE IS WHERE MOST PEOPLE GIVE UP. DON’T LOOK BACK, DON’T LOOK AT THE SPECTATORS.
DON’T LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF THE QUITTERS, THEY QUIT AT THE LAST MILE AND THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO FINISH AND ENTER INTO THE PROMISES.
HABAKKUK 2;3 FOR THE VISION IS FOR AND APPOINTED TIME, BUT AT THE END IT SHALL SPEAK, AND NOT LIE; THOUGH IT TARRY, WAIT FOR IT; BECAUSE IT WILL SURELY COME, IT WILL NOT TARRY.
IT HAS SURLY COME, WE ARE THE GENERATION OF HARVEST, HOLINESS, AND SIGNS AND WONDERS.
SAINTS AROUND THE WORLD ARE UNDER ATTACK, THE ENEMY IS TRYING TO STOP US AT THE LAST MILE OF THE RACE.
I REFUSE TO GIVE UP, THROUGH THE STRENGHT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE WORD OF GOD.
GRACE SHALL CARRY ME TO THE FINISH LINE.
DANIEL 7:13,14 – I SAW IN THE NIGHT VISIONS, AND, BEHOLD, ONE LIKE THE SON OF MAN CAME WITH CLOUDS OF HEAVEN, AND CAME TO THE ANCIENT OF DAYS, AND THEY BROUGHT HIM NEAR BEFORE HIM.
AND THERE WAS GIVEN HIM DOMINION, AND GLORY, AND A KINGDOM, THAT ALL PEOPLE, NATIONS, AND LANGUAGES, SHOULD SERVE HIM: HIS DOMINION IS A EVERLASTING DOMINION, WHICH SHALL NOT PASS AWAY, AND HIS KINGDOM THAT WHICH SHALL NOT BE DESTROYED.
GOD IS SHOWING DANIEL THE FUTURE KINGDOM OF GOD ON THE EARTH. DANIEL IS SEEING AND EVENT THAT IS OVER 2000 YEARS IN THE FUTURE, AFTER THE VIRGIN BIRTH, THE CROSS, THE RESURRECTION, AFTER THE ASCENSION OF JESUS TO HIS HEAVENLY THRONE.
THE SON OF MAN IDENTIFIES JESUS AS THE GREAT JUDGE, THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH, RETURNING TO THE EARTH, TO DESTROY THE WICKED KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD, TO SET UP THE KINGDOM OF GOD ON THE EARTH. TO ARREST SATAN, TO BRING THE GOVERNMENT OF GOD TO THE EARTH.
DANIEL SAW THIS GREAT EVENT, HE SAW THE ANCIENT OF DAYS, WHICH IS FATHER GOD. I BELIEVE JESUS WAS BROUGHT NEAR AND BEFORE THE FATHER, AFTER HIS DEPARTURE FROM THE EARTH, HIS RISING INTO THE CLOUDS IN THE BOOK OF ACTS. DANIEL SAW THIS EVENT.
HEBREWS 1:13 – BUT TO WHICH OF THE ANGELS SAID HE AT ANY TIME, SIT ON MY RIGHT HAND, UNTIL I MAKE THINE ENIMIES THY FOOTSTOOL?
JESUS IS RULING THROUGH HIS CHURCH AT THIS MOMENT, BUT THE WORLD GOVERMENTS STILL RULE THIS WORLD, THIS WILL CHANGE SOON, FOR THE KING OF GLORY IS RETURNING, AND THE RIGHTEOUS WILL RULE AND REIGN WITH HIM. HIS THRONE WILL BE IN JERUSALEM.
JESUS TOOK ON HIMSELF HUMAN FLESH, THROUGH THE VIRGIN BIRTH, HE BECAME LIKE US, HE CAME TO OFFER US FORGIVENESS OF SIN, HE CAME TO OFFER US MERCY, A PARDON FOR OUR SIN, HE CAME TO OFFER US HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. HE CAME TO RESTORE WHAT THE FIRST ADAM LOST. WE WHO RECEIVE HIM ARE MADE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD. WE ARE BORN AGAIN INTO THE FAMILY OF GOD. THE LORD CREATED ALL OF US WE ARE ALL ONE BLOOD, CREATED FOR HIS GLORY. WHY NOT ACCEPT JESUS TODAY IF YOU DON’T HAVE HIM IN YOUR HEART, ASK HIM TO COME IN.
MATT25:31-34 WHEN THE SON OF MAN SHALL COME IN HIS GLORY, AND ALL THE hOLY ANGELS WITH HIM, THEN SHALL HE SIT UPON THE THRONE OF HIS GLORY:
AND BEFORE HIM SHALL BE GATHERED ALL NATIONS: AND SHALL SEPERATE THEM ONE FROM ANOTHER, AS A SHEPHERD DIVIDETH HIS SHEEP FROM GOATS:
AND HE SHALL SET THE SHEEP ON HIS RIGHT HAND, BUT THE GOATSOF THE LEFT.
THEN SHALL THE KINGSAY UNTO THEM ON HIS RIGHT HAND, COME YE BLESSED OF MY FATHER, INHERT THE KINGDOM PREPARED FOR YOU FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD.
THIS IS OF COURSE THE RETURN OF CHRIST, THE SON OF MAN, THE GREAT JUDGE OF THE NATIONS WHO EXIST AT HIS RETURN.
THE KING IS COMING AGAIN, HE WILL PUT DOWN HUMAN GOVERNMENT, AND GOD HIMSELF WILL REIGN ON THIS EARTH.
DANIEL 2:44,45 – AND IN THE DAYS OF THESE KINGS SHALL THE GOD OF HEAVEN SET UP A KINGDOM, WHICH SHALL NEVER BE DESTROYED: AND THE KINGDOM SHALL NOT BE LEFT TO OTHER PEOPLE, BUT IT SHALL BREAK IN PIECES AND CONSUME ALL THESE KINGDOMS, AND IT SHALL STAND FOR EVER.
FORASMUCH AS THOU SAWEST THAT THE STONE WAS CUT OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN WITHOUT HANDS, AND THAT IT BREAK IN PIECES THE IRON, THE BRASS, THE CLAY, THE SILVER, AND THE GOLD; THE GREAT GOD HATH MADE KNOWN TO THE KINGWHAT SHALL COME TO PASS HEREAFTER: AND THE DREAM IS CERTAIN AND THE INTERPRETATION THEREOF SURE.
JOHN THE BAPTIST DIDN’T UNDERSTAND THE TWO ADVENTS OF JESUS, NEITHER DID THE APOSTLES FULLY UNDERSTAND THIS. BUT WE CAN LOOK BACK AND SEE GODS PURPOSE, AFTER THE NATION OF ISRAEL REJECTED THEIR MESSIAH JESUS, THE GOSPEL WAS RECEIVED BY THE GENTILES.
BUT REMEMBER THIS, THE GIFTS AND CALLINGS OF GOD ARE WITHOUT REPENTANCE. THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CAME TO US GENTILE NATIONS THROUGH THE JEWISH PEOPLE, JESUS, HIMSELF BORN INTO A JEWISH FAMILY. WE ARE ALL ONE BLOOD, OUR BOUNDARIES WERE SET BY GOD, YOU AND I WERE BORN WHERE GOD INTENDED FOR US TO BE BORN, YOU WERE BORN FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. YOU HAVE A PURPOSE IN THIS EARTH FOR THE KING. STAY BUSY UNTIL HE COMES. COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS. AMEN.
BLESSED IS HE THAT CONSIDERETH THE POOR: THE LORD WILL DELIVER HIM IN TIME OF TROUBLE.
THE LORD WILL PRESERVE HIM, AND KEEP HIM ALIVE: AND HE SHALL BE BLESSED UPON THE EARTH: AND THOU WILT NOT DELIVER HIM UNTO THE WILL OF HIS ENEMIES.
THE LORD WILL STRENGTHEN HIM UPON THE BED OF LANGUISHING: THOU WILT MAKE ALL HIS BED IN HIS SICKNESS.
THREE TIMES THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THE LORD WILL, IF WE CONSIDER THE POOR, THE LORD WILL CONSIDER OUR NEEDS.
HE SAYS WE WILL BE BLESSED. BLESSED IS HE THAT CONSIDERETH THE POOR.
THE CONTEXT OF THIS HEBREW WORD HERE IS A PERSON WILL ENJOY THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD, AND THERE WILL BE A SPECIAL BLESSING IN THAT RELATIONSHIP. MY WIFE AND I HAVE EXPERIENCED THAT BLESSING. ANY RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD IS PRECIOUS BUT THERE ARE SPECIAL BLESSING IN HELPING THE POOR.
THE LORD ALSO SAID HE WOULD DELIVER US IN TIME OF TROUBLE. THIS IS A PROMISE. GOD SAID I WILL. GOD NEVER LIE’S BUT ALWAYS KEEPS HIS WORD.
HE THAT HATH PITY UPON THE POOR LENDETH UNTO THE LORD: AND THAT WHICH HE HATH GIVEN WILL HE PAY HIM AGAIN.
GOD SAID I WILL PAY BACK TO THE PERSON THAT GIVES TO THE POOR. IF I NEED DELIVERANCE OR HEALING I DON’T NEED MONEY, I NEED SUPERNATURAL HELP. SOME TIMES GOD GIVES US FINIANCES IF THATS WHAT WE NEED. HE BLESSES US WITH MONEY OR FAVOUR. GOD NEVER FORGETS OUR ACTS OF LOVE TOWARDS THE POOR.
THE LORD ALSO SAID HE WOULD PRESERVE US AND KEEP US ALIVE. THE DEVIL WOULD LIKE TO KILL US, BUT GOD SAID I WILL KEEP THEM ALIVE. I BELIEVE THRE ARE SPECIAL ANGELS ASSSIGNED TO THOSE WHO HELP THE POOR.
GOD SAID I WILL KEEP HIM ALIVE: HE SHALL BE BLESSED UPON THE EARTH, AND HE WON’T BE DELIVERED UNTO THE WILL OF HIS ENEMIES. OUR ENEMY’S WILL IS TO HURT US, BUT GOD WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN.
THE LORD PROMISES TO STRENGTH OUR PHYSICAL BODIES, AND IF SICKNESS COMES, WE WILL MAKE OUR BED, PUT ON OUR CLOTHES AND WALK AWAY HEALED, CLAIMING THESE PROMISES.
THE RIGHTEOUS CONSIDERETH THE CAUSE OF THE POOR: BUT THE WICKED REGARDETH NOT TO KNOW HIM.
WE AS CHRISTIANS CAN’T HELP EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD, BUT THOSE THAT GOD HAS PUT ON OUR HEART. WE MUST BE LED BY THE LORD TO THOSE HE DESIRES US TO HELP.
ONLY THEY WOULD THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER THE POOR: THE SAME WHICH I ALSO WAS FORWARD TO DO.
