We are pilgrims on this earth. We will all leave one day, the trick is to know which way we will go. We have the certainty that we will be with Him. On earth, we know where we are. “With God we will do great things; He will crush our enemies (Psalm 60:12).
” We have the seal of God. Revelation is something important to God that He grants to His children. “You have been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God; but as to the others it is said to them in parables, so that when they see they may not see, and hearing they may not understand (Luke 8:10). Death has no more power over us. Death will strike everyone, but God is perfect in what He does. Taken from the dust, you return to the dust: it is about the body. But man was created in the image of God, and God is Spirit. “The Lord God commanded the man, You may eat of all the trees of the garden; but you shall not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for in the day that you eat from it you shall die (Genesis 2: 16-17)." A day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day (2 Peter 3: 8). The day he ate it, he died. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). God cannot be wrong. David understood and he said, “For you will not deliver my soul to hell, you will not allow your beloved to see corruption (Psalm 16:10). And Jesus manifested it by dying on the cross and being resurrected. Christians are anointed because of Christ. The same pillar of fire by day and the pillar of cloud by night was the Spirit of God. This pillar of fire was God in His almighty power. On the day of Pentecost, tongues of fire spread over each head: it is the same pillar of fire, the same God. This God is now in us. The Holy Spirit comes into the soul for the children of God.
John 17: 24-26
This is the prayer that Jesus Christ Himself addressed. It's going to come to pass just like He said it would. “Those who say to me: Lord, Lord! Not all will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only that one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven (Matthew 7:21)." My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me (John 10:27)." I do not pray for the world, but for those whom you have given me, because they are yours (John 17: 9); He came to earth for those who were given to Him. He knew them in advance. "Who do they say that I am the Son of man? … Simon Peter answered: You are the Christ, the Son of the living God (Matthew 16:13 and 16).” Peter recognized the One who was in front of him. He could not know it, but it was God who revealed it to him. All of Israel knew that the Messiah was to come, but it was still necessary to recognize Him!
Romans 9: 3-13
When God has provided to predestinate you, there's no way you'll miss it. All in Israel prayed and worshiped the Lord. You have to be something of the Lord to know that He is an envoy of God. When God does not send, these men are not for the benefit of the people of God but you must recognize those who are sent. “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God (Romans 8:14). Satan is a liar, this is so close to the truth but it is not the truth. “… To the point of seducing, if possible, even the elect (Matthew 24:24). The preachers of the day, the Sanhedrin, the Pharisees and all that had Jesus before them and they slapped Him and did not recognize Him while the Samaritan woman, a harlot, recognized Him. The preacher sees in Jesus a demon while this harlot recognized a prophet. “Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me. "(Matthew 10:40) If you receive the one that is not sent, you also receive the curse. “Righteous Father, the world has not known you; but I have known you, and these have known that you sent me. "(John 17:25) It is not easy to follow this Jesus. If you are sent, it is because God has given you something. An envoy brings the words of him who sent him.
