(KJV.) ACTS 24:15-17
(15) And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
(16) And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offense toward God, and toward men.
(17) Now after many years, I came to bring alms to my nation, and offerings.
A NEW DAY IS DAWN
Brethren, interestingly, to know that, on the day of judgment, both the just and unjust sleeping in death, will hear the voice of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, rise up, and approach the throne of judgment; people who lived good lives will resurrect into eternal lives; whereas, those who lived ungodly lives resurrect into eternal damnation; regardless of what is going on in this world, let us tune off our mindsets from doing whatever everybody does, we belong to the sanctified, set aside, holy nation, peculiar people, destined to live everlasting.
Few guidelines to living in righteousness, are as follows, souls have to beware of what is going on in their environments at all times; many times, believers, tune of the world, and its negativities; that is not what Jesus will do; what Jesus will do is, to get involve, regardless of issues; though believers have been called out of darkness of this world, they still live in the darkness, but are shining lights, to affect positive changes in the dark; therefore, we cannot cover up our lights under bushels, with nonchalant attitudes and behaviors, walk in holiness, pretend like we do not care, watch the world go down to dooms without affecting positive changes; as believers, still in this world, we have parts to play, therefore, let us do our parts, leave the judgment to Jesus Christ, there is a day set aside for judgment; but have moral senses of what is right from wrong; watch behavioral attitudes, with self-awareness of what to engage, what not to indulge ourselves, tune of temptations to fleshly desires, discern voices we listen to, whether they are from the Holy Spirit, or demonic infiltrations spirits, what types of counsels we receive through others, types of lyrics we feed into our spiritual senses; when to speak or remain silent, have clear conscience, give room for offenses, forgive faults, give people benefits of doubts, live peaceably with all men: however, reverence our Father, praise and worship him, acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, have salvation, free grace, and eternal lives.
Today, after many years of sufferings, our Father have chosen his people, set them aside to preach the gospel truth, reconcile the body of Christ under his jurisdiction as one establishment; regardless of physiological or theological beliefs, to bring his goodness and mercies, goodwill to nations of the world, for free sacrifice of peace; therefore, heavens doors are opened now, to intervene in affairs of this world; therefore, let us come together as one family, lay aside our differences, have dialogue tables, deliberate to discuss and negotiate issues, so that we can be on one page, on issues affecting faith establishments, and peace of secular world, implement positive changes in world of darkness.
Dearly beloved, we are all in this world together, cannot act unconcern to negativities of this world, but come together, pray fervently, resolve issues as we encounter them, use our gifts and talents to serve Jesus Christ; every soul is important to him in this world; therefore, let us not feel unworthy, rejected by peers, we live our lives for Jesus Christ, and he loves us dearly; therefore, let us rise up, shine our lights among darkness, serve him diligently, cheerfully, faithfully; trust, believe and hope in him forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
QUOTES OF THE DAY:
(KJV.) St. John 5:28-29 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice. And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
