"Better is one day in thy courts than a thousand elsewhere: I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God, than dwell in the tents of wickedness. "(Psalm 84:10) Despite these circumstances, we remain in communion with one another through the Word of God, through Jesus Christ. We are in unity. God wants perfect unity as God and Jesus Christ. "For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
"(Colossians 2:9) He is our God and He is our Father, therefore we are children of God. We are of the same substance. In good days and bad, we praise Him. Nothing can cool down our love for this God. We belong to Him, He has begotten us. The Yahweh of the Old Testament is the Jesus of the New Testament. There is no confusion: there is only one God who manifests Himself in 3 different forms. He knows us, we are His sheep, we recognize His Voice. He is the Jehova Jiré which means the Lord will provide. He is the I AM. There is no variation in Him. When we have Him, we are at peace. The God of Abraham reveals Himself, manifests Himself and speaks. He is the same, He is the God of the supernatural. We need this manifestation in order to strengthen our faith. This God who created the Earth and all these things, when He set His eyes on the Earth, He saw you. What Grace! That's why we love Him even more. We have no value, who are we in front of this God? What can we give Him? Not even this breath is ours. Humility always precedes glory. There is no reason to be proud.
1 John 2: 12-14 / 1 John 1: 1
John wrote this with great love so that God's people could truly cling to these things. It is not that John wanted or loved to be listened to, but he knew what he was saying and from whom he had received it.
Acts 10: 39-42 / Luke 1: 1-4
They were witnesses, who sent them? God wants whoever comes to Him to have an experience with God, to have the certainty of the Word. If you believe in the trinity, which one of the three will wait for you on the other side? We must have the exact knowledge of things. Luke and John were eyewitnesses and they can testify to the life of Jesus Christ. They saw, contemplated and touched. This is certain to be the Truth. "For we have not made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ by following skillfully conceived fables, but as though we had seen His majesty with our own eyes. "(2 Peter 1:16) God uses men whom He has introduced into His program. They are not everyone, they are men chosen by God. You cannot serve someone you don't know. The Bible is a puzzle, you have to be in God's program to understand and see clearly. It is never man who leads his people but God through man. We must listen to those men who have seen and touched God because they have seen Jesus at work. Be careful because there are many Jesus.
2 Corinthians 11:1-4
"Another Jesus", each denomination has its own Jesus. We want the Jesus of the Bible. Your life is carved according to the Jesus you received. When you receive the Jesus of the Bible, when the Word is preached to you, you accept and believe. There is only one Jesus who saves and has ascended to heaven. If you don't have that Jesus, where are you going to go?
Paul begins by introducing himself to show who he is to show that he is certain of what he is announcing. "For there will come a time when men will not endure sound doctrine. "(2 Timothy 4:3) "I have given them your word. "(John 17:14) "I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me by their word. "(John 17:20) This is the word of men whom God has chosen for Himself.
1 Corinthians 15:1-2
It is not our desire that counts but what God has given us. This virus is a foretaste of what's to come. Why would you want to stay here? The Gospel is being preached all over the world, the end is coming. Before the flood came, God sent Noah to warn. God is patient. This earth is destined for fire but before that we must enter the ark. God never begs to believe, it will not stop God from accomplishing His plan. Satan can no longer have victory. Even in sickness, God heals us. Praise drives demons away.
