Scripture Verses taken from:
[KJV] King James Version
Red, bold italics is Jesus’ Words
14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I
am the way,
the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me. [KJV]
and compiled by:
His Servant Connie Kramer
I have often thought about all the tremendous
privileges (blessings) that true believers have,
that unbelievers don’t have.
And I often wonder why there aren’t more
believers because of these great and awesome privileges
These privileges do not make us better than others.
It is only by our faith in Christ Jesus and the
amazing grace of God that we possess them.
Ephes. 3:12 In whom we have
boldness and access with confidence by the faith
of him. [KJV] It is only because of Christ and our faith in Him, that we
can now come fearlessly into God's Presence, and
be assured that He will welcome us.
Romans 5:1-2 Therefore being
justified by faith, we have peace with God through
our Lord Jesus Christ:  By whom also we have
access by faith into this grace wherein we stand,
and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
[KJV] Since we have been made right in God's sight
by faith, we have peace with Him because of what
Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because
of our faith, Christ has brought us into this
place of highest privilege. We, as believers (God’s
children), can go right into the Presence of God,
to His Throne of grace, with hearts fully trusting
Him. We can hold tightly to the hope we have,
for God can always be trusted to keep His Promise.
We must always encourage one another, and reach
out to the lost ones, telling them the Good News
about Jesus. His coming back again is drawing
near. It is our solemn duty to “Go
ye therefore.” We must
not be selfish with the privileges we have, for
the love of God is sufficient enough for the whole
We must believe in the Name of Jesus and believe
His death on the cross was for our benefit. It
is then and only then, that we become believers
John 1:12 But as many as
received him, to them gave he power to become
the sons of God, even to them that believe on
his name: [KJV] All who welcome Jesus Christ
as Lord of their lives are reborn spiritually,
receiving new life from God. Through faith in
Christ, this new birth changes us from the inside
out. It makes us a new person! It rearranges our
attitudes, desires, and motives. Being born makes
you physically alive and places you in your parents’
family. Being born of God (born
again) makes you spiritually
alive and puts you in God’s family.
The word power is not physical power,
but power which is power of authority. When we
receive Him, Jesus has the authority to make us the sons of God. Believe on His
Name is a phrase never used in Scripture
for any mere creature, not even the prophets or
apostles, because it carries with it the idea
of trust befitting only to God. Jesus gives those
that believe in Himself power to become sons of
God. He has this awesome power! Believe it!
By faith in Christ we enjoy redemption, the purchase
of His atoning Blood. We are forgiven of our sins,
and all other spiritual blessings are bestowed
upon us! It is an absolute favor from God’s
amazing grace, to be delivered from Satan’s
kingdom and brought into the Kingdom of Christ, knowing
that all trials will soon end, and that every
believer will be among those who will participate
in the Rapture (1 Thes.4:14-18). All true believers
will be spared the horrors of great tribulation.
of all our sins! Col.
1:12-14 Giving thanks unto the Father,
which hath made us meet to be partakers of the
inheritance of the saints in light:  Who hath
delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath
translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
has purchased our freedom with His precious Blood
and has forgiven all our sins.
4:7-8 Saying, Blessed are they whose
iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not
impute sin. (KJV) Jesus is willing and able
to forgive our sins when we turn to Him in faith.
He paid a huge price on the cross for us. It is
insulting to think that any sin is too great for
Him to cover. We tend to categorize sins; this
is a small one, that is a big one. To God, sin
is sin. God’s
Word clearly states that sins confessed are sins
forgiven (1 John 1:9). Unbelievers
will be judged for every sin they ever committed
simply because they won’t humble themselves
and accept Christ and His forgiveness.
Rest for our souls. Matthew 11:28-30 Come
unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon
you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly
in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your
souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden
is light. (KJV) We do NOT
have to bear the burden of guilt and shame. If
we go to Jesus with our heavy burdens of sin,
He will graciously give us rest. Only with Jesus
can we find this kind of rest; a resting of our
very souls. An unbeliever CANNOT have this wondrous
rest! It’s impossible!
Spiritual Knowledge. Proverbs 1:7 The
fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge:
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 2:3-6 Yea, if thou
criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice
for understanding;  If thou seekest her as
silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the
Lord, and find the knowledge of God.  For the
Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge
and understanding. (KJV)
starts with God and His Word, the source of “knowledge
and understanding.” In this sense,
wisdom is His gift to us. But He gives it only
to those who sincerely seek it. Because God’s
wisdom is hidden from unbelievers, it takes effort
to find and use it. The path to wisdom is not
easy. True wisdom belongs to God. He will reward
our sincere and persistent search for it.
Proverbs 9:10 The fear of
the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge
of the holy is understanding. (KJV) Wisdom
begins with knowing God. The more we know about
God and the closer we are to Him, the more knowledge
we will have. To really know God is not just to
know the facts about Him, but to stand in awe
of Him and have a close personal
relationship with Him.
Eternal Life. John 6:51 I
am the living bread which came down from heaven:
if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for
ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh,
which I will give for the life of the world.
eat Living Bread means to accept
Christ into our lives and committing our lives
over to Him; to depend on Him to teach, guide,
and empower us. If we trust Him and rely completely
on Him, we have eternal life. If we keep back
part of ourselves, not totally committing our
all to Him, we are not worthy of Him.
John 10:9 I
am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall
be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
[KJV] Christ is the Door, (see Christ
is the Door book) between us and all our enemies?
He is the only Door through which we can pass
to Heaven. He also opens the door of communication
with God the Father. An unbeliever CANNOT access
God (John 9:31; Is.59:2). We must come into the
family of God by Christ Jesus, the Door.
Romans 10:9-10 That if thou
shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and
shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised
him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For
with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. [KJV] Salvation is as close as your heart and
mouth. When you truly believe in your heart and
say with your mouth that Christ is the risen Lord,
you will be saved. There will be times when people
let us down and when troubles come
our way. But God will keep His Promise, those
who call on Him will be saved. God won’t
ever fail to provide eternal life to those who
believe in His precious Son.
1 Cor. 3:16 Know ye not that
ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit
of God dwelleth in you? (KJV)
Cor. 12:13 For by one Spirit are
we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews
or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have
been all made to drink into one Spirit. (KJV)
a person becomes God’s child, the Holy Spirit
takes up residence within. He or she is born into
God’s family (John 1:12). The same Holy
Spirit completely fills our innermost beings.
As members of God’s family, we may have
different interests and gifts, but we are one
with Christ because of the Holy Spirit abiding
Romans 8:9 But ye are not
in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that
the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man
have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Have you ever worried that you might not be God’s
child? A TRUE Christian is anyone who has the
Spirit of God living in him or her. If you have
sincerely trusted Christ for your salvation and
acknowledged Him as Lord, then the Holy Spirit
has come into your life, and you are a Christian.
When the Holy Spirit is working within you, you
will believe that Jesus Christ is God’s
Son and that eternal life comes through Him. You
will then act as Christ directs. You will have
help in your prayers and in daily problems. You
will be empowered to serve God and do His will. IF the Holy Spirit does not abide within
you, you are not God’s child!
Wisdom. James 1:5 If any of you lack
wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all
men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall
be given him. (KJV) By wisdom, James doesn’t
mean only knowledge, but about the ability to
make wise decisions in difficult times. When we
need wisdom, we can ask God, and He will generously
supply what we need. We don’t have to fumble
around in the dark, hoping to stumble upon answers. Wisdom begins with
respect for God, leads to right living, and results
in ability to tell right from wrong. God
is willing to give us wisdom, but we are unable
to receive it if our goals are self-centered instead
of centered on God. To know God’s will,
read His Word and ask Him for help to obey it.
I came upon a definition of three words I had
trouble with years ago. KNOWLEDGE = having facts.
It is good. We go to school to gather knowledge.
WISDOM = applying those facts to life. Knowledge
is useless without wisdom. UNDERSTANDING = is
comprehension, the ability to think and learn.
Divine Fellowship. Rev. 3:20 Behold,
I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear
my voice, and open the door, I will come in to
him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
wants to have fellowship with us (a personal relationship),
and He wants us to open the door of our hearts
to Him. He is patient, but persistent in trying
to get through to us. He does not break and enter,
just knock! It’s our decision whether or
not we open our lives to Him. His awesome life
changing Presence and power are there for all
who open to Him.
this is life eternal, that they might know thee
the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou
hast sent. (KJV) Eternal
life is to know the only true God, and Jesus Christ,
the One whom God the Father sent to Earth. IF
we don’t have a good relationship with Jesus,
we really don’t have eternal life. Fellowship
with Jesus is a tremendous blessing!
Peace. Philip. 4:7 And the peace
of God, which passeth all understanding, shall
keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
(KJV) Do you want to worry less? Then pray more!
When worry seems to take over, stop and pray.
God’s peace is different from the world’s
John 14:27 Peace
I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not
as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not
your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. [KJV] True
peace is not absence of conflict, nor in good
feelings. It comes only from knowing God is in
control. Only Jesus can give us true peace in
3:15 And let the peace of God rule
in your hearts, to the which also ye are called
in one body; and be ye thankful. (KJV) Let
Christ’s peace rule in your heart. The world
cannot know the peace that God’s children
have deep within us. It is impossible, for this
peace in our heart and soul comes only from knowing
Jesus in a personal way. This amazing peace that
God blesses us with is so wonderful that there
are not enough words to describe it. A true blessing!
Needs Supplied. Philip. 4:19 But my God shall
supply all your need according to his riches in
glory by Christ Jesus. (KJV) ALL our needs
are supplied from God’s glorious riches,
which are made available to us because of our
faith in Christ Jesus. Whatever we need He will
always supply, both physically and spiritually.
But remember, there is a big difference between
our wants and our needs. Many people just want
to feel good and avoid discomfort or pain. God
may not always give us all that we want. But,
trusting in Christ changes our attitudes and appetites
from wanting everything to accepting His provision
and power to live for Him.
Power. Col. 1:11-12 Strengthened
with all might, according to his glorious power,
unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath
made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance
of the saints in light: (KJV) We are strengthened
with His glorious power so that we will have all
the patience and endurance we need. We should
always thank God the Father, who has made us fit
to share the inheritance that belongs to His holy
people. Let us live in the light of Jesus.
Love. Ephes. 3:19 And to know the
love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled
with all the fulness of God.
(KJV) God’s love is absolutely complete.
It reaches into every corner of our experience.
It is wide, for it reaches out to the whole world.
God’s love is long, it continues the length
of our lives. It is high, it rises to the heights
of our delight. His love is deep, it reaches into
the depths of our discouragement, despair, and
even death. God’s children can never be
lost to His love. This love is fully expressed
only in Christ. When we are united with Christ,
His empowering Spirit makes us complete.
1 Thes. 3:12 And the Lord
make you to increase and abound in love one toward
another, and toward all men, even as we do toward
you: (KJV) When we are full of God’s
love, it overflows to others. Love is not simply
being nice to others; we must show them love.
Our love should grow, more every day. If your
capacity to love is the same, day after day, ask
God to fill you with His never ending supply.
Then look for chances to show His love. You can
never give all your love away. The more you give,
the more you have.
Joy. Psalm 16:11 Thou wilt shew
me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness
of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore. (KJV) God shows us the right
road of life. We have joy now, because of His
Presence within, and we know deep in our heart
and soul, we will have pleasures of living with
Him forever. True joy to me is knowing I have
5:11 And not only so, but we also
joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom
we have now received the atonement. [KJV]
We can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship
with God, because of what our Lord Jesus Christ
has done for us in making us friends of God (Rom.5:10).
14:17 For the kingdom of God is not
meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace,
and joy in the Holy Ghost. [KJV] For the
Kingdom of God is living a life of goodness and
peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
15:13 Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may
abound in hope, through the power of the Holy
Ghost. [KJV] "The God of hope"
is a wonderful title for Him, because He gives
us hope and joy and keeps us full of peace as
we believe in Him. It's as though our soul overflows
with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Peter 1:8 Whom having not seen,
ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet
believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and
full of glory: [KJV] Even
though we have never seen Jesus with our physical
eyes, we love Him, and we believe Him, and trust
Him. The joy we have in Him can not be expressed
Contentment. 1 Tim. 6:6 But godliness
is great gain.
(KJV) This is the key to spiritual growth and
personal fulfillment. We should always honor God
and center our desires on Him (godliness, Mat.6:33),
and we should be content with what God is doing
in our lives.
Tim. 6:8 And having food and raiment
let us be therewith content. [KJV] Know the difference between needs
and wants. We may have all we need to live, but are anxious, dissatisfied and discontented
over what we want. Don’t
be a slave to your desires. Don’t covet.
Heb.13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness;
and be content with such things as ye have: for
he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake
thee. [KJV] How
can we be content? Try to live with less rather
than lusting for more. God’s love is expressed
in what He has provided. Remember that money and
possessions will all pass away. Contentment comes
when we realize God is capable, and willing to
supply all our needs. We must never think that
God can’t take care of us. Insecurity can
lead to the love of money, whether we are rich
or poor. Trust God to fill all your needs.
Thes. 2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ
himself, and God, even our Father, which hath
loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation
and good hope through grace, (KJV) Our Lord
Jesus Christ and God our Father, love us in a
special way. They give us everlasting comfort
and good hope, through their unmerited grace.
though I walk through the valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with
me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. [KJV]
He is there to comfort us even in death!
119:50 This is my comfort in my
affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.
[KJV] God's Holy Word is there to comfort us in
all our troubles.
Cor. 1:3-4 Blessed be God, even
the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father
of mercies, and the God of all comfort;  Who
comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we
may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble,
by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted
of God. [KJV] God and Father of our Lord
Jesus Christ, is the Source of every mercy and
He is the God who comforts us. He comforts us
in all our troubles so that somewhere down the
road, we can comfort others.
Goodness, Faith. Gal.5:22 But
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith, [KJV]
The fruit of the Spirit is the unrestrained work
of the Holy Spirit in us. The Spirit produces
these fruits in us, which are actually the character
traits that are found in the nature of Christ.
They are the by-products of Christ’s control.
We cannot achieve them on our
own. If we want the fruit of the Spirit to grow
in us, we must join our lives to Jesus (John 15:4-5).
We must know Him, love Him, trust Him, obey Him,
and imitate Him. And we must never quench the
Spirit’s work (1 Thes. 5:19).
Meekness, Self-control. Gal.5:23 Meekness, temperance:
against such there is no law. [KJV] More
fruit of the Spirit! God gave the law, and He
also gave the Spirit. The by-products of the Spirit-filled
life are in perfect harmony with the God’s
law. A person who displays the fruit of the Spirit
fulfills God’s law far better than a person
who observes the rituals but has little love in
my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek
and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto
your souls. (KJV) Only our
Lord Jesus can teach you to be meek. Since He
was meek, we should follow His example and be
meek and mild mannered.
are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
(KJV) Jesus’ words seem to
contradict each other. God’s way of living
usually contradicts the world’s. Give when
others take, love when others hate, help when
others harm, give up your rights to serve others.
This is being meek. Meekness comes from God.
Being God’s Child
Abiding in Christ. John 15:4-5 Abide
in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear
fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine;
no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  I am
the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth
in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much
fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
(KJV) God must sometimes discipline us to strengthen
our character and faith. Branches that don’t
bear fruit are cut off at the trunk because (1)
they are worthless, (2) they infect the rest of
the tree. People who refuse to bear fruit to the
glory of God or who try to block the efforts of
God’s followers will be cut off from His
Partaking of the
Divine nature. 2 Peter
1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding
great and precious promises: that by these ye
might be partakers of the divine nature, having
escaped the corruption that is in the world through
lust. (KJV) The power to grow spiritually
does NOT come from within us, but from God. Because
we can’t be truly godly, God allows us to
“participate in the divine nature”
to keep us from sin and help us live for Him.
When we are born
again, the Holy Spirit empowers
us with His Divine goodness. John 3:6; 14:17-23;
2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Peter 1:22-23.
Access to God by
Christ. Ephes. 2:18 For through him we both have access by one
Spirit unto the Father. (KJV) Neither Jews
nor Gentiles can be saved by good deeds, knowledge,
or sincerity. We all
need to be saved through Christ Jesus. Both Jews and Gentiles are then free to access
God’s Throne of grace through Christ, and
only through Christ, for we have been brought
near to Him (Ep. 2:13). Being of the household
2:19 Now therefore ye are no more
strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with
the saints, and of the household of God; (KJV) God’s household is a group of people.
He lives in us and reveals Himself to a watching
world through us. People should see that God is
love and that Christ is Lord as we live in harmony
with each other and to live a life that is pleasing
to Him. We are citizens of God’s Kingdom!
Those who have accepted God’s free gift
of salvation, have been entitled to be God’s
1:12 But as many as received him,
to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on his name: [KJV] God
has adopted us into His family as His children!
That means we have the rights of a natural born
the Church of the first-born. Hebrews 12:23 To the general
assembly and church of the firstborn, which are
written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all,
and to the spirits of just men made perfect, (KJV) One day this world will be gone. Only God’s
Kingdom will last. Those who follow Christ are
part of this secure kingdom. No matter what happens
here, our future is built on a Solid Foundation
that cannot be destroyed (Jesus).
Build your life on Christ (Mat.7:24-29).
We Have MUCH!
We have Christ for
our Shepherd. Isaiah 40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he
shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry
them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those
that are with young. (KJV) I love this verse!
This is a picture of Christ’s loving and
tender care for His sheep! God is often pictured
as a shepherd, gently caring for and guiding His
flock. He is powerful (Is.40:10), yet careful
and gentle. He is called a shepherd (Psalm 23);
the good shepherd (John 10:11,14); the great Shepherd
(Heb.13:20); and the Chief Shepherd (1 Peter 5:4).
Let us, as defenseless sheep, rely on God’s
am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am
known of mine.(KJV) Jesus
knows whom He has chosen, and they also know whom
they have trusted, and are sure of Him.
other sheep I have, which are not of this fold:
them also I must bring, and they shall hear my
voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
(KJV) The “other sheep” are
non-Jews. Jesus came to save Gentiles as well
as Jews. He came to die for the sins of the world.
People seem to want to restrict God’s blessings
to their own little group, but Jesus won’t
be limited by any fences we build.
We have Christ for
our Intercessor. Romans
8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It
is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen
again, who is even at the right hand of God, who
also maketh intercession for
(KJV) Jesus intercedes for ALL God’s children
in Heaven. God has declared us “not guilty”
because of our faith in His Son, and has removed
our sin and guilt; so it is Satan, not God, who
accuses us. When he does, Jesus stands at God’s
right hand to present our case.
Heb.7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to
the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing
he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
(KJV) No one can add to what Jesus did to save
us! All sins: past, present, and future are all
forgiven. If you are a Christian, remember that
Christ has paid the price for your sins once and
for all. (Heb. 9:24-28.)
John 2:1 My little children, these
things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And
if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father,
Jesus Christ the righteous: (KJV) Jesus Christ,
our Advocate, our Defender, is the Son of God.
He has already paid the penalty for our sin. You
can’t be tried for a case that is no longer
on the docket. When you are united with Christ,
you are as safe as He is.
We have the promises
of God. 2 Cor. 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved,
let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of
the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the
fear of God. (KJV) Purifying ourselves means:
(1) turning away from sin, and (2) turning to
God. “Perfecting holiness”
can be brought about only through Christ! Christ
is our righteousness (1 Cor.1:30), and Christ
is our holiness. So we must walk in the light
of Jesus to perfect holiness. We should be consecrated
to Jesus in our lives.
1:2 In hope of eternal life, which
God, that cannot lie, promised before the world
began; (KJV) God
does not lie. The foundation of our faith is trust
in God. God is Truth, He is the source of all
Truth, He cannot lie!Believing
in Him leads to godliness and a life-style that
pleases Him. Eternal life is ours! God keeps His
John 2:25 And this is the promise
that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
(KJV) The Promise God makes, matches His own greatness,
power, and goodness; it is eternal life.
We have the possession
of all things. 1 Cor.
3:21-22 Therefore let no man glory
in men. For all things are yours;  Whether
Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or
life, or death, or things present, or things to
come; all are yours; (KJV) If worldly wisdom
keeps you away from God, it is not wisdom, it
is stupidity! God’s way of thinking and
doing things is much better, even if it seems
foolish to the world (1 Cor. 1:27). Everything
belongs to you: the whole world and life and death;
the present and the future, because you are heirs
of God, and He owns it all!
We have all things working for our good. Romans 8:28 And we know that
all things work together for good to them that
love God, to them who are the called according
to his purpose. (KJV) This does NOT mean
that everything that happens to us is good. Evil
is common in our fallen world, but God is able
to turn every circumstance around for our long-range
good. Remember, God does not work to make us happy,
but to fulfill His purpose. This Promise is
NOT for everybody. It can be claimed
only by those who love God and are called according
to His purpose. Those who are “called”
are those the Holy Spirit convinces and empowers
to receive Christ. These people have a new viewpoint,
a new mind-set on life. They trust in God, not
in life’s fleeting treasures; they look
for their security in Heaven, not on Earth; and
they learn to accept, not resent, pain and persecution.
We have our names
written in the book of life. Luke
10:20 ---- but
rather rejoice, because your names are written
in heaven. [KJV] Your most
important victory, is that your name is written
in Heaven. This awesome honor is much more important
than any of your accomplishments.
Rev. 20:15 And whosoever
was not found written in the book of life was
cast into the lake of fire. (KJV) At the
Great White Throne Judgment, the books will be
opened. This is a very sad verse to me, because
many of my family will be here. IF their names
are not found in the Book of Life, they will be
“cast into the lake of fire” (Hell). Those whose
names are in the Book of Life, are those who have
put their trust in Christ to save them, and Heaven
Rev. 21:27 And there shall
in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth,
neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh
a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's
book of life. (KJV) Only those whose names
are written in the Lamb’s book of life will
be allowed access to Heaven. Jesus has made eternal
life available. Trust Him to secure your citizenship
in Heaven. He will!
God Is Many Things To Us.
He is our King. Psalm 5:2 Hearken unto the
voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto
thee will I pray. (KJV) The secret of a close
relationship with God is to pray to Him earnestly
each morning. In the morning, our minds are more
free from problems so we can commit the whole
day to Him. Regular communication helps any friendship
and is absolutely necessary for a strong relationship
with God. We need to communicate with Him daily.
Do you have a regular time to pray and read God’s
Word? If not, re-arrange your schedule!
44:6 Thus saith the Lord the King
of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts;
I am the first, and I am the last; and beside
me there is no God. (KJV) The King of Israel
is the King also of all believers! There is not
a God for the Jews and another God for the Gentiles.
Almighty God the Father and Almighty God the Son
(Jesus) is the first, and the last (Rev.1:8,17). There is NO other
God beside Him! Who can compare with our King?
God is our Glory. Psalm 3:3 But thou, O Lord,
art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter
up of mine head. (KJV) When things go against
us, it is tempting to think God is also against
us. But that is not so. When everything seems
to go wrong, God is still for us and with us.
If circumstance has turned against you, don’t
blame God, seek Him!
Isaiah 60:19 The sun shall
be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness
shall the moon give light unto
thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting
light, and thy God thy glory. (KJV)
One day we will no longer need the sun or moon
to give us light, for the Lord God will be our
everlasting Light, and He will be our glory (Rev.21:23-24;
God is our Protection. Micah 7:7 Therefore I will
look unto the Lord; I will wait for the God of
my salvation: my God will hear me. (KJV)
Salvation most often in the Old Testament means
protection, deliverance. We can have a relationship
with God that can allow us to have great confidence.
True safety and comfort can be found only by looking
to the Lord, and waiting on God, our Salvation.
Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my
light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the
Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall
I be afraid? (KJV) Fear is a dark shadow
that tries to imprison us within ourselves. We
all have been a prisoner of fear at some time:
fear of rejection, misunderstanding, uncertainty,
sickness, death. We can’t conquer fear on
our own, but the bright freeing light of the Lord
brings release. If we want to cast out the darkness
of fear, turn to the Lord!
12:2 Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord
Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is
become my salvation. (KJV) IF we truly love
and trust the Lord, we will not be afraid (1 John
God is our Father. Deut. 32:6 Do
ye thus requite the Lord, O
foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father
that hath bought thee? hath he not
made thee, and established thee? (KJV)
God deals with us by unerring wisdom and perfect
justice. He is always
just and right. We all are imperfect.
If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves,
we lie! All willful sinners, Israel or believers
are unwise and ungrateful.
64:8 But now, O Lord, thou art our
father; we are the clay, and thou our potter;
and we all are the work of thy hand. (KJV)
God is our Father. We are the clay, He is the
Potter. We are all formed by His Hand. No created
object has the right to demand anything from its
Creator, for our very existence depends on Him.
We should keep this in mind so we don’t
take pride in personal achievement.
Cor. 1:3 Grace be unto you, and peace,
from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. (KJV) Grace is God the Father’s free gift
of salvation given to us in Christ. Receiving
it brings us peace (Rom.5:1). In a world of noise,
confusion, and relentless pressures, people long
for peace. Many give up the search, thinking it
doesn’t exist, but true peace of the heart
and mind is readily available to us through faith
in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 1:4 Who gave himself
for our sins, that he might deliver us from this
present evil world, according to the will of God
and our Father: (KJV) You
were saved to live for God. Does
your life show how grateful you are for being
rescued? Is your loyalty with Christ? Or the world?
Philip. 4:20 Now unto God
and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
(KJV) We should sing our praises to God every
day we live. We should look on God, not as an
enemy, but as a loving Father, willing to
love us and have compassion on us; to help us
when we are weak and foolish. We must give glory
to God as a Father for God’s grace and favor,
that is enjoyed by all His children. All has been
purchased for us by Christ’s merit, and
applied to us by His pleading for us. Thank Him
God is our Redeemer. Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth,
and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable
in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
(KJV) Do you ask
God to approve your words and thoughts? Did you
ever consider they really are like offerings brought
to the altar.As you start each
day, ask God to let His love guide what you say
and what you think and what you do.
1:7 In whom we have redemption through
his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according
to the riches of his grace; (KJV) A redeemer
is one who has the duty of restoring the rights
of another and making right his wrongs. This title
is applied to Christ, the Son of God. He redeems
us from all evil by the payment of a ransom (His
Sacrifice on the cross).
God is our Friend. John 15:14-15 Ye
are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command
you.  Henceforth I call you not servants;
for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth:
but I have called you friends; for all things
that I have heard of my Father I have made known
unto you. (KJV) The joy of
those who abide in Christ’s love is a continual
feast. We must show our love to Him by keeping
His commandments. Christ’s love to us should
make us willing to love
each other. LOVE
is His command to us. If
we do not love, we are not His friend. If we want
God as our Friend, we must love!
2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled
which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was
imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was
called the Friend of God. (KJV) Abraham was
“considered righteous” because he
believed God; and he was justified because he
believed God (Rom.4:1-5). True faith always results
in deeds, but those deeds do not justify us. Faith
brings us salvation; and our obedience shows our
faith is real. Every true believer is a friend
God is our Helper. Psalm 33:20 Our soul waiteth
for the Lord: he is our help and our shield. (KJV) All human striving for the salvation of
our souls is in vain; but the Lord knows those
who fear His name. All who fear God and His wrath,
must hope in God and His mercy. We must never
run from Him, but TO Him! Let us always rely on
the comfort and benefit of His help, not because
of our merits, but because of the Promise which
He has given us.
Hebrews 13:6 So that we may
boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will
not fear what man shall do unto me. (KJV)
God is our Helper, why should we fear anything
man shall do to us?
God is our Keeper. Psalm 121:4-5 Behold, he
that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor
sleep.  The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is
thy shade upon thy right hand. (KJV) Our
confidence should be in God only. We must see
all our help in God; and from Him we must expect
it, but, in His own way and time. God is a wakeful,
watchful Keeper; He
is never tired; and He does not sleep. The Lord
shall chase away the evil you fear, and He will
remove the evil you feel. He will preserve our
soul from eternal destruction. He keeps us in
life and death. He will protect us in this life
and the life to come.
God is our Deliverer. 2 Samuel 22:2 And he said,
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;
(KJV) If we trust God in little things, we will
soon learn that He is there in our greatest dangers.
We’ll not be delivered from all enemies
until we get to Heaven, but God will preserve
all His people.
18:2 The Lord is my rock, and my
fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength,
in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn
of my salvation, and my high tower. (KJV)
God’s protection of His people is limitless.
God is like (1) a rock that can’t be moved
by any who would harm us, (2) a place of safety
where the enemy can’t follow, (3) a shield
standing between us and harm, (4) our strength
and power, (5) a stronghold high above our enemies.
When we need protection, God is there.
God is our Refuge. Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge
and strength, a very present help in trouble. (KJV) Do you fear the mountains or cities suddenly
crumbling because of a bomb? Even if the world
ends, we need not fear if God is on our side.
God is our refuge even in total destruction. He
is not just a temporary Retreat; He is our eternal
Refuge and can provide strength and peace in any
25:4 For thou hast been a strength
to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress,
a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat,
when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm
against the wall. (KJV) Do you really grasp
the words here? Really wonderful! He is a strength
to the poor, He is a Refuge from the storms of
life, He strengthens the needy in their distress.
He is a Shelter from the heat and rain; for the
oppression of ruthless people is like a storm
beating against a wall. God
is there in any situation.
God is our Shield. Psalm 84:11 For the Lord
God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace
and glory: no good thing will he withhold from
them that walk uprightly. (KJV) God does
not promise to give us everything we think is
good, but He will not withhold anything from us
that is permanently good. He will give us wisdom
to walk along His paths, but we must do the walking.
When we obey Him, He will not hold anything back
that will help us serve Him. God the Father has
already given us His Best (His Son); why would
He withhold any other good thing from us?
91:4 He shall cover thee with his
feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust:
his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. (KJV) I love this verse. This pictures our Lord
as a mother hen protecting her young. Any of you
who have seen a mother hen caring for her chicks
know how protective she can be. God and Christ
is our protecting Shield against troubles and
dangers. Trade all your fears for faith in Him,
no matter how great your fears. Rest in Him today,
under His protective wings.
God is our Light. 1 John 1:5-6 This then is
the message which we have heard of him, and declare
unto you, that God is light, and in him is no
darkness at all.  If we say that we have fellowship
with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do
not the truth: (KJV) Light represents all
that is good, pure, true, holy, and reliable.
Darkness represents all that is sinful and evil.
“God is light” means that
God is perfect. He is holy, pure and true and
only He alone can guide us out of the darkness
of sin. Darkness cannot exist in the presence
of light, and sin cannot exist in the Presence
of a Holy God. To have a relationship with God,
sin must stop. When we do stumble and sin, confess
it immediately (1 John 1:9). We can’t say
we’re “Christians” and live
for the devil.
John 1:4-5 In him was life; and the life was the light of
men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and
the darkness comprehended it not. [KJV] True
life is only in Jesus! And this life gives light
to everyone. His light shines through the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish it.His light
guides true believers on the right path of life.
Evil (darkness, unbelievers), cannot understand
this wondrous light!
God is our Guide. John 16:13 Howbeit
when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will
guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak
of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that
shall he speak: and he will shew you things to
come. (KJV) The Holy Spirit
guides us into all truth (the Truth about Jesus).
He also helps us through patient practice to discern
right from wrong.
Psalm 48:14 For this God
is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide
even unto death. (KJV) We often pray for
God’s guidance as we struggle with problems.
We need both guidance and a guide; a constant
Companion who knows the way and will make sure
we get there correctly. The Bible is our map,
and the Holy Spirit is our constant Companion
Privileges of Believers
We Are Privileged
We are united in
God and Christ. John 17:21 That they all
may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I
in thee, that they also may be one in us: that
the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
(KJV) Jesus’ great desire for His disciples
was that they would become one. He wanted them,
then and now, to be unified as a powerful witness
to show the reality of God’s love. We can
pray for others, avoid gossip, build each other
up, work together in meekness, give our time and
money, exalt Christ, and refuse to argue over
matters that would divide us. Jesus prayed for
unity of believers based on our unity with Him
and the Father. We can know unity among ourselves
only if we are living in union with God.
John 15:5 I
am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth
in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much
fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
(KJV) Each branch living in union with the vine
is united with all other branches doing the same. The only way to
live a truly good life is to stay close to Jesus. We must be like branches attached to the Vine.
Apart from Christ our efforts are fruitless and
vain. We must willingly reach out and receive
nourishment and life offered by Christ, the Vine.
If you are not united to Christ, you are missing
an extremely special gift He has for you.
We have confidence
in God. Psalm 31:5 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast
redeemed me, O Lord God of truth. (KJV) David said
“Into your hands I commit my spirit.”
He had complete trust in God. Jesus used these
words as He was dying on the cross, thus showing
His absolute dependence on God the Father (Luke
23:46). Stephen said these words as he was being
stoned to death (Acts 7:59). He was confident
that in death he was simply passing from God’s
earthly care to God’s eternal care. We should
commit our total being completely to Him. Holding
back any part is showing doubt or distrust in
1:6 Being confident of this very
thing, that he which hath begun a good work in
you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
(KJV) Our God who began a good work in us will
continue it all through our lifetime and will
finish it when we meet Him Face to face. God’s
work started for us when Christ
died on the cross in our place. His work started in us when we first had faith and believed.
Now because the Holy Spirit lives in us, God’s
work in us continues, enabling us to be more like
Christ every day.
Tim. 1:12 For the which cause I also
suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed:
for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded
that he is able to keep that which I have committed
unto him against that day. (KJV) I know Whom
I have believed. Our feeble faith can grasp and
hold tight to a powerful Saviour. We deposit our
complete trust in Him. I am sure He is able to
guard what I have entrusted to Him until the day
of His return. In spite of so many enemies around
me, I know that my body, soul, and spirit, which
I have committed
to Him is in safe keeping (1 Thes. 5:23;
1 Peter 4:19).
We can call upon
God in our trouble. Psalm
50:15 And call upon me in the day
of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt
glorify me. (KJV) In the day of our darkest
distress, we can go to the Lord in earnest prayer.
Our troubles, even though God may allow them to
happen, must drive us TO Him, not away from Him.
We must honor Him in all our ways, depend on His
wisdom, power, love and goodness; and deliver
ourselves entirely to Him, and always give Him
the glory. Jesus is willing to help if we only
ask Him. Don’t ever slight His power even
in terrible trials.
Psalm 138:3 In the day when
I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst
me with strength in my soul. (KJV) Have you
asked God for peace, protection, strength, comfort,
patience, love, or other special needs? Did He
supply them? Did
you thank Him? Please beware of taking God’s
provision and answered prayer for granted.
We suffer for Christ. Acts 5:41 And
they departed from the presence of the council,
rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer
shame for his name. (KJV) Have you ever thought
of pain or persecution as a blessing? Do you ever
rejoice about it? The beating suffered by Peter
and John was the first time any of the apostles
had been physically abused for their faith. These
men knew how Jesus had suffered, and they praised
God that He had allowed them to be persecuted
for His sake. If you are mocked or persecuted
for your faith, it isn’t because you’re
doing something wrong, it’s because the
Lord has counted you “worthy of suffering
disgrace for His Name.”
1:29 For unto you it is given in
the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him,
but also to suffer for his sake; (KJV) Paul
considered it a privilege to suffer for Christ.
We do not by nature consider suffering a ‘privilege.’
But suffering does have some benefits: (1) it
takes our eyes off of earthly comforts; (2) it
weeds out superficial believers; (3) our faith
is strengthened; (4) it teaches us patience; (5)
it helps us to help others who may follow us.
When we suffer for our faith, it doesn’t
mean that we have done something wrong. Actually
the opposite is true; it proves that we have been
faithful. Allow suffering to build your character.
Don’t resent it, don’t let it tear
We profit by chastisement. Psalm 119:67 Before I was
afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy
word. (KJV) However God has dealt with us,
He has dealt with us far better than we deserve;
and He does it all in love, and for our good.
Many people have knowledge, but little wisdom;
those who have both, are fortified against the
snares of Satan, and equipped for the service
of God. We are most likely to wander from God,
when things are going right and easy in the world.
When we stray, He will rebuke and chastise us.
12:10-11 For they verily for a few
days chastened us after their own pleasure; but
he for our profit, that we might be partakers
of his holiness.  Now no chastening for the
present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless
afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness
unto them which are exercised thereby.
(KJV) It’s never pleasant to be corrected
and disciplined by God, but His discipline is
a sign of His deep love for us. Any time God rebukes
and/or corrects you, look at it as proof of His
love. Ask Him what He is trying to teach you,
IF you do not already know! We can respond to
discipline in several ways: (1) accept it knowing
it is right, (2) accept it with self-pity, thinking
we don’t deserve it; (3) be angry and resentful
toward God; or (4) accept it willingly and gratefully.
We are to intercede
for others. James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray
one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual
fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
(KJV) To intercede for someone is to pray for
them or make a petition to God on their behalf.
Christ has made it possible for us to go directly
to God for forgiveness (Rom.5:1-2; 1 John 1:9).
We are to confess our sins to God but our faults
one to another. If I have hurt you, then I should
confess that to you, and try to make it right.
But I should never confess my sins to you, and
you should not confess your sins to me. You are
to confess sins only to the Lord. (1 John 1:9). NO person can forgive
sins; neither can any pastor or priest forgive
sins, only God can forgive sins! But we are to go to God in prayer on
behalf of others.
1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a
chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy
nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew
forth the praises of him who hath called you out
of darkness into his marvellous light: (KJV)
In Old Testament times, people did not approach
God directly. A Levite priest acted as mediator
between God and sinful human beings. But, with
Christ’s victory on the cross, that changed.
Now we can come directly into God’s Presence
without fear (Heb.4:16), and we are given the
responsibility of bringing others to Him as well
(2 Cor. 5:18-21). When we are united with Christ,
we are members of His body, and we join in His
priestly work of reconciling God and man. People
often base their self-concept on what they have
accomplished. But our relationship with Christ
is far more important than our jobs, successes,
wealth, or knowledge. We have been chosen by God
as His very own, and we have also been called
to represent Him to others. Most believers tend
to forget this. It is NOT an option to intercede,
but a command! (Mat.28:19). Remember, your value
comes from being one of God’s children,
not from what you can achieve. You
have worth because of what God does, not because
of what you do. You are privileged!
We are tied to responsibility. Romans 1:5-6 By whom we have
received grace and apostleship, for obedience
to the faith among all nations, for his name:
 Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus
Christ: (KJV) Through Christ, God has given
us the privilege, authority and responsibility
to tell people every where what God has done.
It is our duty to tell of Jesus so that they will
believe and obey Him, and bring glory to His Name.
8:26-27 Likewise the Spirit also
helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what
we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit
itself maketh intercession for us with groanings
which cannot be uttered.  And he that searcheth
the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit,
because he maketh intercession for the saints
according to the will of God. (KJV) “I can’t do it” you say.
“I can’t tell people about Jesus;
I don’t know what to say.” Yes
you can! Many times we seem like
we are up against a brick wall. So many “Christians”
never even attempt to tell people about Jesus.
You do not need to be an expert on the Bible.
Just tell people what Jesus means to you. Each
time you do, it gets easier! Don’t
ever be concerned with what people will think,
your concern is: what God does think? We
as believers, are not left to our own resources
to cope with problems. Even when you don’t
know the right words to pray, the Holy Spirit
prays with and for you, and God answers. With
the Holy Spirit interceding for you, you can intercede
for others. And you can be a witness for Jesus.
Most people believe there is a God. And they believe
He created the universe. They also believe He
could take them at any moment if He wanted to.
It’s so strange to me that they don’t
believe God is capable of giving them eternal
life. God will give eternal life to anyone who
trusts in His Holy Son. There is a Hell, and only Jesus can keep you from going
there! When you trust Him to save you, you then
have all the privileges spoken of in this book.

Jn.3:15, 36; 5:24; 6:40; 17:3;
Gal.6:8; Ro.6:23; 8:6;
Jam.1:15; 5:20; Rev.21:8; 2 Thes.1:8; 1 Pet.4:17;
believe me. See what God has to say.
MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
There are two groups of people on the Earth today:
Believers who are the children of God, and
unbelievers who are the children of the devil.
John 3:10 In this the children of
God are manifest, and the children of the devil:
whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God,
neither he that loveth not his brother. (KJV)
The difference between God's children and the
devil’s children is super clear! IF you
do not do what is right, IF you do not love others,
you are not God’s child; you belong to the
Everyone who is now a child of God was once a
child of the devil. Because of Adam and Eve’s
sin in the Garden of Eden (Gen.2:16; 3:1-7), their
sin was transferred to the entire human race.
We ALL are born with a sinful nature (Psalm 58:3)
from day one! We ALL are sinners (Rom.3:10,23).
We ALL need the forgiveness and salvation that
only Christ Jesus can offer. NO one is exempt!
Until we turn to Christ to save us from the penalty
of sin (Hell) and from God’s wrath (Rom.5:1-10),
we are doomed to everlasting destruction in the
fires of Hell (Mat.25:41), along with the devil.
Only belief in Jesus, by faith, can bring us forgiveness
of our sins, make God our Friend instead of our
enemy, and guarantee us a mansion in Heaven for
eternity, thus saving us! Without Jesus we are
walking on that huge wide road that leads to Hell.
We need to get on the narrow road that leads to
Heaven. We need to be saved!
DOES IT MEAN TO BELIEVE?
You may know that God’s love and grace are
limitless even if you are not a ‘believer,’
but you may not know that unless you believe on
the Name of Jesus, God’s Son, as your personal
Saviour and Lord, you will never experience that
love or that grace, in the salvation of your soul.
To believe means you know you cannot save
To believe means that you know that salvation
is through Christ alone, and only He can save
believe means that if you want to go to Heaven,
you must go through Christ.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there
salvation in any other: for there is none other
name under heaven given among men, whereby we
must be saved. [KJV]
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto
him, I am the way,
the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me. [KJV]
Heaven is where the Father is.
To believe means you know Christ is who He
says He is, and will do what He said He will
To believe means you accept what Christ did
on the cross; redeeming your soul from Hell
and God’s wrath, and completely forgiving
To believe means you must have a personal
relationship with Christ; trusting Him as
your loyal Friend and Guide in all things.
To believe means you know you must obey Christ.
