"Be a True Child of God" from 1 John 3:1-10

Image
1 John was written by John apostle He saw and proclaim Jesus as God.
Love was mentioned 41 times in this book.

For us to be a true child of God we need to experience God's love and receive that Love. We need to receive Him as your personal Lord and Savior.

If you don't have a relationship with God them you are the son of the devil, it is so important to know why Christ love us and His love is unconditional whether you are good or bad, Jesus still loves you.

John 3:16
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

So many people doesn't understand that verse, that who so ever believe in Him.

1 Corinthians 2:9
However, as it is written:
"No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love him"


Romans 8:29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn a…

"Inquire the Lord" from 1 Kings 22

Image
We need to inquire our Lord spiritually example is going through the Bible verse by verse, chapter by chapter.

To inquire the Lord we must seek His counsel. In every decision even small we must seek counsel of God, seek His word and truth. Part of enquiring is prayer and listen to His voice. Read your Bible.

Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.


2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

Don't be mislead.
Don't listen to man but inquire the Lord always and pray you must listen to the voice of God.
We are standing for what is right, to what the Bible says.

The fruit of the spirit is Love. We need to have Love in telling someone else false opinions.
So important to …

"Stay Connected With Jesus" from 1 John 3

Image
Electronic devices needs electricity, and be connected in to the plug in order to function.

And so, we also need to be connected to Jesus in order to persevere.

We need to abide in fellowship for the preparation of the coming of Christ.
Hebrews 1:2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.

Who is the anti-Christ?

The antiChrist are those who deny Jesus and opposed the teachings of Jesus Christ.

1 John 4:3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Trinity - God the father, God the son and Holy Spirit.
There are many religion who are sincere but what they believe and doctrine are wrong. You have to be in the truth.

To abide in Christ.
Hebrews 2:1 We must pay …

"Do not covet" from 1 Kings 21

Image
Even a little child can commit covetousness if we don't discipline them.

Exodus 20:17 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."
James 1:14 but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed.

If we are materially minded we always want just a little more.

The sin of covetousness sometimes may be looked small because it is the 10th commandment but out of covetousness comes many sins. Covetousness will happen to everybody if we are not on guard.

Deuteronomy 19:15 One witness is not enough to convict a man accused of any crime or offense he may have committed. A matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.

If we humble ourselves and repent God will revive us the grace we need as He is a merciful God, no matter how far we are, if we turned back from our sins God will forgive.

"Received His Encouragement and Warning" from 1 John 2:12

Image
Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."

The more you spend time with Jesus the more you will be like Him. You have known the Father - know more about Jesus.

John 14:7 If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him."

We need to be reminded about the word of God because the enemy will put evil thoughts in us all the time, even the family members will tell you not to go to church. If sinners entice you - do not go with them.

How can you over come the wicked one?

Is to spend time with God's words.

Is is not important to memorize but the most important is to over come the evil one and put God's words in our hearts.

How can a man or woman remain pure?

Psalm 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

The thing that you spend the most is the thing that occupies your heart.

Set your mind on things above …

"Do Not Boast" from 1 Kings 20

Image
Some of us knows the story of Titanic:
The RMS Titanic was an Olympic-class passenger liner owned by British shipping company White Star Line and built at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Ireland. At the time of her construction, she was the largest passenger steamship in the world.
source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMS_Titanic
Everybody who invented the ship was boasting that they stated "Not even God can ever submerge the ship".
Shortly before midnight on 14 April 1912, four days into the ship's maiden voyage, Titanic hit an iceberg and sank two hours and forty minutes later, early on 15 April 1912. The sinking resulted in the deaths of 1,517 of the 2,223 people on board, making it one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history.

Pride, boasting
Proverbs 11:14For lack of guidance a nation falls,
but many advisers make victory sure.


Listen to the advice of other believers and listen to the word …

"Embrace the Truth" from 1 John 2:1-11

Image
Theme of this Book are: God is light, God is love and God is life.

And, to remind us that Jesus is coming back, Jesus save us.

To continue our relationship with Jesus we must obey His words and embrace the truth.

We may have lots of excuses sometimes to sin, but Jesus said you should be perfect but nobody is perfect except God. And, if we do sin let in our defense be Jesus Christ - the righteous One. When Jesus defend us He will never lost the fight by defending us by His own blood. So in order for us to continue to be saved by Jesus we must continue to obey the truth.

Titus 2:11-14
11For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. 12It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13while we wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a peopl…

"Listen to His still Small voice" from 1 Kings 19

Ahab - king of Israel his wicked wife Jezebel in which he is afraid.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

Another name for Horeb - Mt. Sinai

Luke 9:61-62
61 Still another said, "I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say good-by to my family."
62 Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."

Even he we fail from discouragement Jesus will still use us
