Revelation 8:7-9


2 Corinthians 2:14-15, Ephesians 5:3-5, Ephesians 5:19-21.

But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in
Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the
knowledge of him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those
who are being saved and those who are perishing.

2 Corinthians 2:14-15 NIV

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be
once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor
foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather
giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean
person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in
the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Ephesians 5:3-5 KJV

Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving
thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God,
even the Father; and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.

Ephesians 5:19-21 NASB

God bless you.

Matthew 6:22-34.

Matthew 6.22-34
Light

"Your eyes are like a window for your body. When they are good, you
have all the light you need. But when your eyes are bad, everything
is dark. If the light inside you is dark, you surely are in the dark.

Money

You cannot be the slave of two masters! You will like one more than
the other or be more loyal to one than the other. You cannot serve
both God and money.

Worry

I tell you not to worry about your life. Don't worry about having
something to eat, drink, or wear. Isn't life more than food or
clothing? Look at the birds in the sky! They don't plant or harvest.
They don't even store grain in barns. Yet your Father in heaven takes
care of them. Aren't you worth more than birds?
Can worry make you live longer? Why worry about clothes? Look how the
wild flowers grow. They don't work hard to make their clothes. But I
tell you that Solomon with all his wealth wasn't as well clothed as
one of them. God gives such beauty to everything that grows in the
fields, even though it is here today and thrown into a fire tomorrow.
He will surely do even more for you! Why do you have such little
faith?
Don't worry and ask yourselves, "Will we have anything to eat? Will we
have anything to drink? Will we have any clothes to wear?" Only
people who don't know God are always worrying about such things. Your
Father in heaven knows that you need all of these. But more than
anything else, put God's work first and do what he wants. Then the
other things will be yours as well.
Don't worry about tomorrow. It will take care of itself. You have
enough to worry about today."

God bless you.

Romans 7:24-26, 1 Corinthians 10:16-17, 1 Corinthians 15:56-58.

What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?
Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in
my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to
the law of sin.

Romans 7:24-26 NIV

Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a
participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we
break a participation in the body of Christ?Because there is one loaf,
we, who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.

1 Corinthians 10:16-17 NIV

The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But
thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus
Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable,
always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that
your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:56-58 KJV

Father God, forgive my sins. Thank you for sending Jesus Christ down
to die on the cross and for shedding his blood for me. Three days
later you resurrected him. I accept that. I invite Jesus Christ my
heart as my Lord and savior. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

God bless you.

Matthew 24:1-28.

Matthew 24.1-28
The Temple Will Be Destroyed

After Jesus left the temple, his disciples came over and said, "Look
at all these buildings!"
Jesus replied, "Do you see these buildings? They will certainly be
torn down! Not one stone will be left in place."

Warning about Trouble

Later, as Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, his disciples came
to him in private and asked, "When will this happen? What will be the
sign of your coming and of the end of the world?"

Jesus answered:

Don't let anyone fool you. Many will come and claim to be me. They
will say that they are the Messiah, and they will fool many people.
You will soon hear about wars and threats of wars, but don't be
afraid. These things will have to happen first, but that isn't the
end. Nations and kingdoms will go to war against each other. People
will starve to death, and in some places there will be earthquakes.
But this is just the beginning of troubles. You will be arrested,
punished, and even killed. Because of me, you will be hated by people
of all nations. Many will give up and will betray and hate each
other. Many false prophets will come and fool a lot of people. Evil
will spread and cause many people to stop loving others. But if you
keep on being faithful right to the end, you will be saved. When the
good news about the kingdom has been preached all over the world and
told to all nations, the end will come.

The Horrible Thing

Someday you will see that "Horrible Thing" in the holy place, just as
the prophet Daniel said. Everyone who reads this must try to
understand! If you are living in Judea at that time, run to the
mountains. If you are on the roof of your house, don't go inside to
get anything. If you are out in the field, don't go back for your
coat. It will be a terrible time for women who are expecting babies
or nursing young children. And pray that you won't have to escape in
winter or on a Sabbath. This will be the worst time of suffering
since the beginning of the world, and nothing this terrible will ever
happen again. If God doesn't make the time shorter, no one will be
left alive. But because of God's chosen ones, he will make the time
shorter. Someone may say, "Here is the Messiah!" or "There he is!" But
don't believe it. False messiahs and false prophets will come and
work great miracles and signs. They will even try to fool God's chosen
ones. But I have warned you ahead of time. If you are told that the
Messiah is out in the desert, don't go there! And if you are told that
he is in some secret place, don't believe it! The coming of the Son
of Man will be like lightning that can be seen from east to west.
Where there is a corpse, there will always be buzzards."

God bless you.

Eternal Life!

Eternal Life!

"Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and
night within his temple; and he who sits upon the throne will shelter
them with his presence. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any
more; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat. For the
Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will
guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away every
tear from their eyes."

Revelation 7:15-17 RSV

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also
which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.For this we say unto you
by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the
coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the
Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of
the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall
rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up
together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so
shall we ever be with the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 4:14-17 KJV

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this
life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have
the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who
believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you
have eternal life.

1 John 5:11-13 NASB

Father God, forgive my sins. Thank you for sending Jesus Christ down
to die on the cross and for shedding his blood for me. Three days
later you resurrected him. I accept that. I invite Jesus Christ into
my heart as my Lord and savior. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

God bless you.

Revelation 4:1-11.

Revelation 4:1-11.

1 At this point I had another vision and saw an open door in heaven.
And the voice that sounded like a trumpet, which I had heard speaking
to me before, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must
happen after this." 2 At once the Spirit took control of me. There in
heaven was a throne with someone sitting on it. 3 His face gleamed
like such precious stones as jasper and carnelian, and all around the
throne there was a rainbow the color of an emerald. 4 In a circle
around the throne were twenty-four other thrones, on which were seated
twenty-four elders dressed in white and wearing crowns of gold. 5 From
the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings, and peals of thunder.
In front of the throne seven lighted torches were burning, which are
the seven spirits of God. 6 Also in front of the throne there was what
looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. Surrounding the throne
on each of its sides, were four living creatures covered with eyes in
front and behind. 7 The first one looked like a lion; the second
looked like a bull; the third had a face like a human face; and the
fourth looked like an eagle in flight. 8 Each one of the four living
creatures had six wings, and they were covered with eyes, inside and
out. Day and night they never stop singing: Holy, holy, holy, is the
Lord God Almighty, who was, who is, and who is to come." 9 The four
living creatures sing songs of glory and honor and thanks to the one
who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever. When they do so,
10 the twenty-four elders fall down before the one who sits on the
throne, and worship him who lives forever and ever. They throw their
crowns down in front of the throne and say, 11 "Our Lord and God! You
are worthy to receive glory, honor, and power. For you created all
things, and by your will they were given existence and life."

Father God, forgive my sins. Thank you for sending Jesus Christ down
to die on the cross and for shedding his blood for me. Three days
later you resurrected him. I accept that. I invite Jesus Christ into
my heart as my Lord and savior. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

God bless you.
