Yes, the abundant life the Jesus of the Bible (there is false Jesus preached nowadays) talked about was not to have a wonderful life on earth but to have a MEANINGFUL, POWERFUL, HOPEFUL life because allowing the Holy Spirit not only to shape us but also to shape our life, plans and goals. Many Christians in America and Canada will
pay the high cost for refusing the MOB. (mark of the beast)

Subject: [i_amgodschildcc.blogspot.com] Fear NotOur Lord warned his disciples to prepare for persecution. They were to avoid all things which gave advantage to their enemies, all meddling with worldly or political concerns, all appearance of evil or selfishness, and all underhand measures. Christ foretold troubles, not only that the troubles might not be a
surprise, but that they might confirm their faith. He tells them what they should suffer, and from whom. Thus Christ has dealt fairly and faithfully with us, in telling us theworst we can meet with in his service; and he would have us deal so with ourselves, in sitting down and counting the cost. Persecutors are worse than beasts, in that they prey upon those of their own kind. The strongest bonds of love and duty, have often been broken through from enmity against Christ. Sufferings from friends and relations are very grievous; nothing cuts more. It appears plainly, that all who will live godly in Christ Jesus must suffer persecution; and we must expect to enterinto the kingdom of God through many tribulations. With these predictions of trouble, are counsels and comforts for a time of trial. The disciples of Christ are hated and persecuted as serpents, and their ruin is sought, and they need the serpent’s wisdom. Be ye harmless as doves. Not only,
do nobody any hurt, but bear nobody any ill-will. Prudent care there must be, but not an anxious, perplexing thought; let this care be cast upon God. The disciples of Christ must think more how to do well,than how to speak well. In case of great peril, the disciples of Christ may go out of the way of danger, though they must not go out of the way of duty. No sinful, unlawful means may be used to escape; for then it is not a door of God’s opening. The fear of man brings a snare, a perplexing snare, that disturbs our peace; an entangling snare, by which we are drawn into sin; and, therefore, it must be striven and prayed against. Tribulation, distress, and persecution cannot take away God’s loveto them, or theirs to him. Fear Him, who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. They must deliver their message publicly, for all are deeply concerned in the doctrine of the gospel. The whole counsel of God must be made known, Ac 20:27. Christ shows them
why they should be of good cheer. Their sufferings witnessed against those who oppose his gospel. When God calls us to speak for him, we may depend on him to teach us what to say. A believingprospect of the end of our troubles, will be of great use to support us under them. They may be borne to the end, because the sufferers shall be borne up under them. The strength shall be according to the day. And it is great encouragement to those who are doing Christ’s work, that it is a work which shall certainly be done. See how the care of Providence extends to all creatures, even to the sparrows. This should silence all the fears of God’s people; Ye are of more value than many sparrows.And the very hairs of your head are all numbered. This denotes the account God takes and keeps of his people. It is our duty, not only to believe in Christ, but to profess that faith, in suffering for him, when we are called to it, as well as in serving him. That denial of
Christ only is here meant which is persisted in, and that confession only can have the blessed recompence here promised, which is the real and constant language of faith and love. Religion is worth every thing; all whobelieve the truth of it, will come up to the price, and make every thing else yield to it. Christ will lead us through sufferings, to glory with him. Those are best prepared for the life to come, that sit most loose to this present life. Though the kindness done to Christ’s disciples be ever so small, yet if there be occasion for it, and ability to do no more, it shall be accepted. Christ does not say that they deserve a reward; for we cannot merit any thing from the hand of God; but they shallreceive a reward from the free gift of God. Let us boldly confess Christ, and show love to him in all things.I can’t but think of a person as a very young child back in the 1960 when we were in grade school we then could pray
in the elementary grade school during any time of the day our teachers could teach us some of the old history about parts of our bibles for us to learn back then in at that time, along side having prayer which could lead us to such a better life that we could lead and trust in daily.. Of course we was living in such a small community in a farm town living back then. Then one day they had said they could No longer teach it to us because of the new law that was brought on by "Madalyn Murry O’ Hair" and the "Supreme Court ruling against it since she was an Atheist" Years later this woman whom came against people of God was found dismembered bodies along with family members and with one of their killers too[1995-2007]. I just can’t fathom how their end result might have been at that last moment in time for all of them it’s just not thinkable for me to be honest with each of you I’d rather not go there. I can only remember our scriptures in the word of God when it speaks about
that kind of a judgement that handed down by God as He ruless in everyone’s life t those moments. and you can read it for one self [Psalms 109:6-20]. Just remember the following verses that goes with these scriptures for us to take hold of in our life that all of those whom wants us destoryed by those whom accuse Gods children for our strong belief in Jesus Christ with sounding faith as we stand upon Him while going through our trials and tribulations during these last days.The Lord Jesus may speak here as a Judge, denouncing sentence on some of his enemies, to warn others. When men reject the salvation of Christ, even their prayers are numbered among their sins. See what hurries some to shameful deaths, and brings the families and estates of others to ruin; makes them and theirs despicable and hateful, and brings poverty, shame, and misery upon their posterity: it is sin, that mischievous, destructive thing. And what will
be the effect of the sentence,to ï¿½Go, ye cursed, to ï¿½ upon the bodies and souls of the wicked! How it will affect the senses of the body, and the powers of the soul, with pain, anguish, horror, and despair! Think on these things, sinners, tremble and repent (Ps 109:21-31).It just takes great humility for us to fully entrust our lives unto God. One of the difficulties we have as His children is for all of to admit just how helpless we all are on a daily basisin overcoming every single defects of our own each character we have inside of one self that one day it finally shows us ho much it’s become of all of that of which we are truly dependent we’ve become on all material,pride, ego,wealth, possessions, by lying cheating, stealing from whatever means it came from in one’s own life. By overcoming it in it’s own wake of one’s own dependency which are highly powerful to any
given person we see though different eyes just what had taken place in having it all by our own way and means in getting them. and how a person is truly enslaved to one’s own desires and very strong appetites. Dependence on God and all that has for us is the only road to finding true freedom. Even those God is calling us to be child-like in our spirits but it truly don’t mean to have such child-like behaviors in and around our life. That kind of living is what bring us to death sentences that we don’t want in one’s own end at that time when facing Jesus Christ at that time of one’s own judgement. Looking at another passage of our scripture we see 2 Cor.2:11 Least Satan should get an advanage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.As We are God Children, such as as those apostles in Jesus Christ desires them to receive the person who had done wrong, again into their
communion; for he was aware of his fault, and much afflicted under his punishment. Even sorrow for sin should not unfit for other duties, and drive to despair. Not only was there danger last Satan should get advantage, by tempting the penitent to hard thoughts of God and religion, and so drive him to despair; but against the churches and the ministers of Christ, by bringing an evil report uponChristians as unforgiving; thus making divisions, and hindering the success of the ministry. In this, as in other things, wisdom is to be used, that the ministry may not be blamed for indulging sin on the one hand, or for too great severity towards sinners on the other hand. Satan has many plans to deceive, and knows how to make a bad use of our mistakes (2Co 2:12-17). For God whom ceated every single person in this world and all of the creatures. For He created the world to function
according to His plans. God created all of us to function best with Him alway’s- to live joyfully and healthy lives – when we do it His way. When we folow our own path, we suffer and hve all of those very painful consequences. If, we follow Him and seek to live accordingly to Him (God’s ) plans that he’s laid out for us in the Bible, we will discover the way to live in peace and harmony with Jesus Christ then living in harmony with God and other people and the world we all live in today that bring us Home to have it all in eternity (Psalms 104:1-26). So just as with the scripture that I started with that whom is living in Satan’s world will die by Him and those whom live for Jesus Christ will live that Eternal living which last forever and ever. For those whom purified themselves are greatly stirred-up and are very active lively in the work of His holiness. Those whom scoffer in the last days that claim to be under the Gospel whom does make light of all sins and truly
mock at salvation by Jesus Christ. For when Jesus Christ comes for they have No belief in Him in His coming only because they will see No changes, therefore they fear not God (Ps.55:19). For us whom are christians be very zealous and unwearied in the way of Heaven. To coninually be in the Word of God in prayer watching and waiting on Jeus Christ coming for all whom belong to Him on that day. I _amgodschild. I GoodSearch for [your cause].
