Info to print out and distribute to others on the Mark of the Beast
For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose HEARTS are fully committed to him.... (2 Chr 16:9)
He gave me this explanation: 'The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, TRAMPLING IT DOWN AND CRUSHING IT. (Dan 7:23)
The mark of the beast (MOTB) is not going to hit in every part of the world simultaneously. Israel will be the first as we now know, then from elsewhere to everywhere throughout the globe. Time is very short. Prepare for death and PARADISE afterwards.
Then the LORD said to me, "The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and the delusions of their own minds. Therefore, this is what the LORD says about the prophets who are prophesying in my name: I did not send them, yet they are saying, 'No SWORD OR FAMINE will touch this land.' Those same prophets will perish by SWORD AND FAMINE. (Jer 14:14,15)NOTE: both death by sword and famine are mentioned in seal 4 (Rev. 6:7,8).
Judaism is similar to Islam in various ways. Taqiyya in Islam means, use deceit to trick infidels and advance Islam. Jews have Shituf, which is basically the same, tells Jews they can lie to Christians about Noahide laws and what they are really about.
Those who wrongly magnify and read only the Torah will NEVER know about the mark of the beast, which is almost upon us, and only found in Revelation - unless from some outside source.
When a Catholic WRONGLY says the Bible came from the Catholic Church, ask him/her what the Bible says about getting forgiven and entering Paradise after death. Of course, that will probably end their repeating Catholic propaganda about the Bible. At that point, you might be able to help him to know the truth about forgiveness from scripture.
The two outstanding characteristics that emanated from the PRECIOUS Lord Jesus that was apparent to the people were his WISDOM and MIRACULOUS POWERS:
Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. "Where did this man get this WISDOM and these MIRACULOUS POWERS?" they asked. (Mat 13:54)
When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because HE TAUGHT AS ONE WHO HAD AUTHORITY, AND NOT AS THEIR TEACHERS OF THE LAW. (Mat 7:28,29)His teaching ASTONISHED the crowds:
When the crowds heard this, THEY WERE ASTONISHED AT HIS TEACHING. (Mat 22:33)
IF you consider yourself a teacher of God's Word and if this verse doesn't cause you to be righteously fearful, there is something WRONG!
Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that WE WHO TEACH WILL BE JUDGED MORE STRICTLY. (James 3:1)Do you realize just to teach a false gospel will cause such to be damned:
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned! Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ. (Gal 1:8-10)
Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. (Heb 13:3)
Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' (Mat 25:34-36)***NOTE: We are saved by a SUBMISSIVE FAITH IN THE PRECIOUS LORD JESUS THAT OBEYS. The object of our faith and trust for our soul's salvation is JESUS 100%, while we obey and follow him. We are not saved by our obedience, but our obedience to God reflects our spiritually alive condition. ***NOT everyone who does the kind of things cited in Mt. 25:34-36 are real Christians, i.e., Mother Teresa.
For the righteous, to see PRECIOUS Jesus for the first time will be a humbling thrill. On the other hand, for the wicked to see the one they reject, refused and hated will be a time of TERROR. Both are inevitable. YOU decide which will be true for your encounter with the KING OF GLORY - the PRECIOUS Lord Jesus.
BE VERY GUARDED with YOUR WORDS!!
Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. (James 3:5,6)
HE WHO GUARDS HIS LIPS GUARDS HIS LIFE, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin. (Prov 13:3)
Anyone who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a PROPHET'S REWARD, and anyone who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man will receive a RIGHTEOUS MAN'S REWARD. (Mat 10:41)Examine the Old Testament to see what the prophets were like and why they have a special reward.
Do you too have a "thorn in the flesh", as Paul did?
To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. (2 Cor 12:7-9)
Does God hate COWARDS? They are listed first among those going to the lake of fire:
But the COWARDLY, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars--their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death. (Rev 21:8)_________________________________
PRECIOUS in the sight of the LORD is THE DEATH OF HIS SAINTS. (Psa 116:15)_________________________________
Does God ever take back what he gives? YES!
"His master replied, 'You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. 'TAKE THE TALENT FROM HIM and give it to the one who has the ten talents. For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' " (Mat. 25:26-30)
And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, GOD WILL TAKE AWAY FROM HIM HIS SHARE in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. (Rev 22:19)_________________________________
But THESE are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. (John 20:31)**What are "these" referring to? Answer: the MIRACLES throughout the Gospel of John. The verse before makes that clear is this:
Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. (John 20:30)_________________________________
Do you realize that most of the people you deal with throughout the week are CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL and that YOU yourself were one too, that is, assuming you repented and are living HOLY now.
This is how we know who the children of God are and who the CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother. (1 John 3:10)_________________________________
We have already entered the Tribulation (The DISTRESS OF THOSE DAYS referred to in Mt. 24:29 and elsewhere) and Seal #3 is next. I can only provide evidence that suggests both assertions, but cannot prove either. NOTE: there is NOTHING in scripture to say: (1) when the Tribulation will exactly start or (2) how long the tribulation actually is.
We do KNOW when the Tribulation will end. It ends with rapture, that is, the POST tribulation rapture. Hence, that is the end of the Tribulation and the beginning of the wrath of God. The faithful saints will be spared from God's wrath. The Tribulation is NOT the wrath of God, as many wrongly believe, but rather, the wrath of the devil.
Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the DEVIL has gone down to you! HE IS FILLED WITH FURY [WRATH], because he knows that his time is short. (Rev. 12:12)
Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen [God's wrath] and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man. (Luke 21:36)Stay ALERT and GUARDED. That prayer is to escape the wrath of God which comes AFTER the devil's wrath, i.e. the great tribulation/reset. God will spare his faithful children from his wrath, but first we must go through the great tribulation. This is a test. PASS THIS TEST NOW WITH HONORS!!
COMMENT: At this very moment in March 2021, it seems the devil is attacking Israel and soon will be the war on the saints and Rev. 13:10. HOLD ON, faithful saints. PARADISE is getting close.
I encountered 2 OSAS devil doctrine proponents this month. In each case, I cited Rev. 14:9-12 as proof that there absolutely is NO eternal security (or once saved always saved). Why? Because the "saints" who receive the mark of the beast will go to eternal torment. Neither could deal with the clarity and power of that timely passage - now - just before the MARK OF BEAST (Rev. 13:16,17) is manifest. IF you are a Christian, remember Rev. 14:9-12 and do NOT receive the mark of the beast!
Read 1 Samuel 20 and note the very close friendship David had with Jonathan, who was King Saul's son. NOTE: Jonathan was in line to be king after his father died, and, yet, Jonathan saved David's life, who would reign instead!
Without question, the Lord Jesus is DEITY, but the following fallacious argument is sometimes wrongly cited for proof: Jesus is God in the flesh, because he walked on water. Why is that argument useless? ANSWER: Because Peter also walked on water, yet isn't God in the flesh.
**These 2 things will bring you VICTORY over unforgiveness!!! (1) Realize YOUR SINS against God were 500,000 times greater than the sins of others against YOU, as hurtful as they were!! (That proportion is actually Jesus' teaching in Mt. 18:21-35, and Jesus never exaggerated.) (2) Pray and ask God to sincerely forgive them 100% the same exact way you yourself want to be forgiven 100% by God. Forgiving others is a salvation issue and nothing less (Mt. 6:14,15)!
What is "the beast" in Rev. 13? In part, the beast is a person, as well as the false prophet is a person. We know that because both will be TORMENTED forever (as only people can be) in the lake of fire:
And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be TORMENTED day and night for ever and ever. (Rev 20:10)This verse is also important proof that the antichrist is NOT the devil in the flesh, as some wrongly believe, although he does get his power from the devil.
Do YOU know what "taste death" means?
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might TASTE DEATH for everyone. (Heb 2:9)To "taste death" means to EXPERIENCE death; that is a possible Greek meaning of the word "taste" and also the case based on the context.
SIX DAYS BEFORE THE PASSOVER, Jesus arrived at Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. (John 12:1)
It was the day of Preparation of PASSOVER Week, about the sixth hour. "Here is your king," Pilate said to the Jews. But they shouted, "Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!" "Shall I crucify your king?" Pilate asked. "We have no king but Caesar," the chief priests answered. (John 19:14,15)_________________________________
Here a dinner was given in Jesus' honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. Then Mary took ABOUT A PINT OF PURE NARD, AN EXPENSIVE PERFUME; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, "Why wasn't this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? IT WAS WORTH A YEAR'S WAGES. (John 12:2-5)Apparently, Lazarus, Martha and Mary were a rich household. Also, it seems that the unnamed sinful woman in Luke 7:37-50, who poured perfumed on Jesus' feet, wiped her tears off Jesus feet and kissed them, was this same Mary:
This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair. (John 11:2)_________________________________
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. (James 4:14)Do you view yourself as a mere MIST that will VANISH away (and it could be very soon too)? BTW, for the Christian, to die is GAIN (Phil. 1:21). It is always GAIN for the Christian to die over this earthly life, especially with all this current oppression leading to the Mark of the Beast - the bodily proof of vaccination ID needed to "buy or sell".
Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. (1 Pet 2:1)Read these verses, showing the context, to gain even more clarity on the reality of our natural life:
For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you. Therefore, RID YOURSELVES OF ALL MALICE AND ALL DECEIT, HYPOCRISY, ENVY, AND SLANDER OF EVERY KIND. (1 Pet 1:24-2:1)
Amazing Things About God [AUDIO]
**COMMENT: This vax now is TOXIC and GENE-ALTERING and MUST NOT BE TAKEN, but it is NOT the actual mark of the beast. Also, going to "church" is often VERY DANGEROUS in our dark day, because of all the BLIND GUIDES.
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the TEST, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12)(We are being "TESTED" at this very moment. BE ALERT and STAY FAITHFUL TO JESUS.)
On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, "If anyone is thirsty, LET HIM COME TO ME AND DRINK. Whoever BELIEVES IN ME, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." (John 7:37,38)
By this, Jesus meant the Holy Spirit, whom the believers in Him (Jesus) would receive later. Up to that time. the Spirit had not been given since Jesus had not yet been glorified. On hearing his words, some of the people said, "Surely this man is the Prophet." Others said, "He is the Christ." Still others asked, "HOW CAN THE CHRIST COME FROM GALILEE? DOES NOT THE SCRIPTURE SAY THAT THE CHRIST WILL COME FROM DAVID'S FAMILY AND FROM BETHLEHEM, THE TOWN WHERE DAVID LIVED?" (John 7:39-42)NOTE: Apparently, because those people didn't know Jesus was born in Bethlehem (Lk. 2:4-7), they were misled about his identity. Below must be the verse people were thinking of when Jesus was amongst them.
"But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times." (Micah 5:2)Micah 5:2 does not say that Messiah can't be born in Bethlehem and then, afterwards, move and grow up in Galilee, as they may have been thinking.
Joab said to Amasa, "How are you, my brother?" Then Joab took Amasa by the beard with his right hand to kiss him. Amasa was not on his guard against the dagger in Joab's hand, and Joab plunged it into his belly, and his intestines spilled out on the ground. Without being stabbed again, Amasa died. Then Joab and his brother Abishai pursued Sheba son of Bicri. (2 Sam 20:9,10)
Did you know when Job was being tested, he also suffered the following ways:
"And now their sons MOCK ME IN SONG; I have become a byword among them. They detest me and keep their distance; THEY DO NOT HESITATE TO SPIT IN MY FACE. (Job 30:9,10)
You must get to the point where you absolutely don't care what people say/think about you; PLUS, you must keep following Jesus and spreading the word of truth somehow to be FRUITFUL.
But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, IF WE HOLD ON TO OUR COURAGE and the hope of which we boast. (Heb 3:6)**It takes COURAGE to be Christian, yet the world portrays the Christian as a coward - the opposite of reality.
The "COWARDLY" will be damned. They are listed even before the unbelievers, murderers and sorcerers (Rev. 21:8). HOLD ON, dear family.
The cowardly, in that context, means fearful of man to the point where one either does not come to Jesus for salvation or where one falls away (Lk. 8:13) or shrinks back (Heb.10:38) from shining their light for Christ. In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, (2 Tim. 3:12). The fear of man is a killer.
The Samaritans in Sychar were the opposite of the Gadarenes, who pleaded with Jesus to leave (Mk. 5:17). How were they the opposite?
So when the Samaritans came to him, THEY URGED HIM TO STAY WITH THEM, and he stayed two days. (John 4:40)PRECIOUS Jesus honored their will and stayed 2 days (Jn. 4:43)!
***God honors our FREE WILL and WE CAN HAVE AS MUCH OF GOD AS WE WANT or NONE AT ALL, even though God is impartial and wants everyone to be saved through repentance (2 Peter 3:9).
**Jesus clearly revealed his identity as Messiah to a Samaritan woman (Jn. 4:25,26) early on in his earthly ministry (between his first and second miracle), while he concealed it from others, even later on. (Jn. 8:25).
that all may honor the Son JUST AS they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him. (John 5:23)** The Greek word "honor" means: value OR revere. Hence, if anyone who claims to "believe on Jesus" doesn't place the same "value" on Jesus or "revere" him just as, and equally as, he does the Father, THEY ARE NOT ONLY WRONG; they also DO NOT HONOR THE FATHER. This is a serious indictment against all who reject the deity of Christ, like the Jehovah's Witnesses, who also WRONGLY say Jesus is Michael the archangel!
Furthermore, in heaven, every "creature" is praising and worshiping the Father and Jesus (thereby proving Jesus is not a created being praising and worshiping himself). Furthermore, while they are engaging in praise and worship, they declare, among other things, "honor" to both the father and Jesus (Rev. 5:13), that is, the same honor to both.
Connect the dots and notice what the Bible yields about saving faith:
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. (John 3:18)
and come out - those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned. (John 5:29)
and I have the same hope in God as these men, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked. (Acts 24:15)The righteous are those who have all their faith (or belief) in Jesus for salvation; they also do good deeds - not evil.
I recently encountered 3 Mormon missionaries and I asked them what the LDS church taught about the mark of the beast (MOTB). Two did not utter a single word, while the third only said, "I heard of it"! Their false religion claims 6.5 million people in the USA alone, yet they don't have a clue what the mark of the beast is (as well as various other things, including how to be saved).
I have similarly talked to scores of people around here who never even heard of the mark of the beast. It is a very dark day.
The True Servant of God [AUDIO]
MEMORY VERSE ==> In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1) (The Word is JESUS - Jn. 1:14.)
For I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it. (Mat 13:17)**IF you are biblically righteous like them, just like many others, you would especially like various end time details elaborated upon at this time; but all we have is all we have. Despite that, by far, the most important end time issue is recognizing the mark of the beast, which is speeding it's way to the forefront and that is the BODILY MARK OF VACCINATION ID coming with the MICRONEEDLE 'smart patch' vaccination connected to one's finances. To be safe, do NOT take ANY MARK to your body for any reason (Rev. 13:16,17). Remember Rev. 14:9-12.
Do you know why John the Baptist came baptizing people?
I myself did not know him, but the reason I CAME BAPTIZING WITH WATER WAS THAT HE [MESSIAH] MIGHT BE REVEALED TO ISRAEL. (John 1:31)
Who did John the baptist say he was?
John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, "I am the voice of one calling in the desert, 'Make straight the way for the Lord.' " (John 1:23)Matthew tells us:
This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah: "A voice of one calling in the desert, 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.' " (Mat 3:3)What does that reveal about JESUS from Isaiah the prophet?
A voice of one calling: "In the desert prepare the way for the LORD; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God." (Isa 40:3)A syllogism from that yields this:
John prepared the way for JESUS.**That is irrefutable proof that JESUS IS GOD. For more such proof see Jesus, YHWH God Of The Old Testament NOTE: Jesus is NOT the Father
The voice (John the baptist) prepares the way for the LORD (YHWH).
Therefore, Jesus is the LORD (YHWH), that is, God.
The 3 names for Peter in one verse: Simon, Cephas and Peter:
And he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas" (which, when translated, is Peter). (John 1:42)
IMPORTANT: Do NOT stumble over this verse:
Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. (Rom 13:1)We are NOT commanded to "submit" to government laws that are against God's commands. A prime example is NOT taking the Mark of the Beast that will be pushed on all by the government, because if you receive it you will be tormented in burning sulfur forever (Rev. 14:9-12)!
Also, Daniel the prophet disobeyed the law and prayed to God (Dan 6) and Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego would NOT bow to the King's image (Dan 3).
Consider also the following where Peter and the other apostles were haled before the council for preaching Jesus:
"We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name," he said. "Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us responsible for this man's blood." But Peter and the other apostles replied, "We must obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:28-29)Do NOT allow a MISinterpretation of Romans 13:1 stumble you. Compare scripture with scripture. **DO NOT TAKE THE BODILY PROOF OF VACCINATION ID microneedle vaccine - which is the MARK OF THE BEAST [or even this present gene-altering, toxic, untested, unapproved and unnecessary hypodermic needle vaccine now]!
What a wonderful declaration the PRECIOUS Lord Jesus stated about Nathanael:
When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, "Here is a true Israelite, in whom THERE IS NOTHING FALSE (or 'NO DECEIT' - CSB)." (John 1:47)
Did you know this detail about Jesus' earthly ministry?
He then added, "I tell you the truth, you shall see heaven open, and THE ANGELS OF GOD ASCENDING AND DESCENDING ON THE SON OF MAN." (John 1:51)
One of the best places in the Bible to go to in order to better understand "GRACE" is 1 Peter; based on this verse:
With the help of Silas, whom I regard as a faithful brother, I have written to you briefly, encouraging you and testifying that THIS IS THE TRUE GRACE OF GOD. Stand fast in it. (1 Pet 5:12)Catholics NOTE: Though Peter (who was supposed to be the first pope) wrote 1 Peter about "GRACE", he NEVER mentioned Mary by name nor made any inference to Mary about anything! That fact is a DEVASTATING BLOW to Catholics because they were taught that Mary is the "mediatrix and dispenser of all grace". IF that was true, certainly Peter would have referred to Mary for at least SOMETHING since he hit, on perhaps, at least 6 or 8 major areas of GRACE and Christianity (but Mary was NEVER cited in any of them).
BTW, another telling verse about true grace is the following.
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say "NO" TO UNGODLINESS AND WORLDLY PASSIONS, and TO LIVE SELF-CONTROLLED, UPRIGHT AND GODLY LIVES IN THIS PRESENT AGE, while we wait for the blessed hope -- the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, EAGER TO DO WHAT IS GOOD. (Titus 2:11-14)**That passage is NOT the version of grace declared by the eternal security teachers.
As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, EVEN IF NOAH, DANIEL AND JOB were in it, they could save neither son nor daughter. They would save only themselves by their righteousness. (Ezek 14:20)That verse sets apart Noah, Daniel and Job in a righteously special way. **To get a blessing do a biographical study on each.
The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, SHINING EVER BRIGHTER till the full light of day. (Prov 4:18)In other words, the light gets brighter as truth is expanded upon. NOTE: ERRORS AND LIES are not "light". Proverbs 4:18 is like saying the 20 watt bulb in the lamp is now a 100 watt bulb. Do NOT allow a Jehovah's Witness confuse you with Proverbs 4:18 to gloss over their many contradictory teachings.
Do NOT forget this detail about what the earliest Christians were like:
For here we do not have an enduring city, but WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE CITY THAT IS TO COME. (Heb 13:14)**Think BIG PICTURE, beyond the grave, and not just this earthly life now.
Did you know Jesus also accomplished this for us?
Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil-- and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. (Heb 2:14,15)
**IF you cast your spiritual "pearls" to swine and dogs, this might happen:
"Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces. (Mat 7:6)Maybe that is why your unsaved family, who you have tried many times to win to the Lord, INSULT and OPPOSE you in various ways like they do.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might (Eph. 6:10, NKJV).
