Present life and future death
Here is something I read on Facebook.
Present life and future death
by Joshua Agan
I love to laugh. I love to poke fun at absurdities, inconsistencies, and even my own problems in life. I believe that if you can’t laugh at yourself and laugh with others, then you’re doing life the hard way. Life’s too short not to enjoy (and none of us make it out alive anyway). 😂
But there is not only a time for laughter—there are times that we have to be serious and even somber.
One topic that is serious concerns your present life and future death. The Scriptures say that the Lord knows those that are His. He then tells us how we can know, too. He clearly defined what it means to have “Life Eternal,” and to “know Him,” and to “fellowship” with them.
The Scriptures are filled with explanations, descriptions, comparisons, and analogies to help us understand these simple truths. Jesus spells it out plainly:
“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”
John spells it out plainly, as to children:
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: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
And 👉hereby WE DO KNOW that we know Him, IF we keep his commandments.👈
He that saith, ‘I know him,’ and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: HEREBY KNOW WE that we are in him.
👉He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.👈
1 John 2:1-6
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.
👉And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.👈
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
And ye know that 👉He was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.👈
Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him.
Little children, 👉let no man DECEIVE you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning.👈
For THIS PURPOSE the Son of God was manifested, that He might DESTROY the WORKS of the devil.
Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for His seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
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.👈
For THIS is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
1 John 3:1-11
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
BY THIS WE KNOW that we love the children of God, when we love God, AND keep his commandments.
👉For THIS is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.👈 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of His Son.
He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made Him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
👉These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; THAT YE MAY KNOW that ye have eternal life,👈 and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
1 John 5:1-13
• Remember yesterday’s post about that which is in your cup spilling out? What spills out of your cup?
Do you KNOW God and Jesus Christ?
All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, THAT WE MAY KNOW HIM that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ.
👉THIS is the TRUE God, and eternal life.👈 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
1 John 5:17-21
