What A Life Reflecting Jesus

Will Look Like

Galatians 2:20 New Living Translation (NLT)

20 My old self has been

crucified with Christ.[a]

 It is no longer I who live,

but Christ lives in me.

So I live in this earthly body by

trusting in the Son of God,

who loved me and gave

 himself for me.

2 Timothy 2 New Living Translation (NLT)

A Good Soldier of Christ Jesus

Timothy, my dear son, be strong through

the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus.

You have heard me teach things that have

been confirmed by many reliable witnesses.

Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people

who will be able to pass them on to others.

Endure suffering along with me,

as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.

Soldiers don’t get tied up

in the affairs of civilian life,

for then they cannot please

the officer who enlisted them.

 And athletes cannot win the prize

 unless they follow the rules.

And hardworking farmers

should be the first

to enjoy the fruit of their labor.

Think about what I am saying.

The Lord will help you understand all these things.

The First Understanding

 (Twelve Intro Scriptures)

Scriptures That Explain Clearly

How Jesus Wants To Live

His Life Through Us And

 How To Reach

The Top Of The Stairs.

The Amount Of Faith You Have

 Is A Direct Reflection Of

How Much Time Everyday You Spend

Listening To God's Word,

Jesus.

(1IS)

Romans 10:8-11, 17

New King James Version (NKJV)

But what does it say?

“The word is near you,

 in your mouth and in your heart”

(that is, the word of faith which we preach):

that if you confess

with your mouth the Lord Jesus

and believe in your heart that

God has raised Him from the dead,

you will be saved.

10 For with the heart one

 believes unto righteousness,

and with the mouth confession

is made unto salvation.

11 For the Scripture says,

“Whoever believes on Him

will not be put to shame.”

17 So then faith comes by hearing, and

hearing by the word of God.

Listening To The New Testament.

When You Listen To God's Word

The Holy Spirit Of God Will

Teach You The Word.

(2IS)

1 John 2:26-27 New Living Translation (NLT)

26 I am writing these things to warn you

about those who want to lead you astray.

27 But you have received the Holy Spirit,[a]

and he lives within you,

so you don’t need anyone to

teach you what is true.

For the Spirit[b] teaches you everything

 you need to know,

and what he teaches is true—

it is not a lie.

So just as he has taught you,

remain in fellowship with Christ.

True Faith Results In

 Deeds Or Works

Explained Very Clearly.

(3IS)

James 2:14-26 New Living Translation (NLT)

Faith without Good Deeds Is Dead

14 What good is it, dear brothers and sisters,

if you say you have faith

 but don’t show it by your actions?

Can that kind of faith

save anyone?

15 Suppose you see a brother or sister

 who has no food or clothing,

16 and you say,

 “Good-bye and have a good day;

stay warm and eat well”—

but then you don’t give that

person any food or clothing.

What good does that do?

17 So you see,

faith by itself isn’t enough.

Unless it produces good deeds,

it is dead and useless.

18 Now someone may argue,

“Some people have faith;

others have good deeds.” But I say,

 “How can you show me your faith if you

don’t have good deeds?

I will show you my faith

by my good deeds.”

19 You say you have faith,

for you believe that there is one God.[a]

Good for you!

Even the demons believe this,

 and they tremble in terror.

 20 How foolish!

Can’t you see that faith

without good deeds is useless?

Parable of the Farmer Scattering Seed

Matthew 13:18-23 New Living Translation (NLT)

18 “Now listen to the explanation of the parable

about the farmer planting seeds:

19 The seed that fell on the footpath

represents those who hear the message

about the Kingdom and don’t understand it.

Then the evil one comes and snatches away

 the seed that was planted in their hearts.

20 The seed on the rocky soil represents

 those who hear the message and

immediately receive it with joy.

21 But since they don’t have deep roots,

they don’t last long.

They fall away as soon as they have problems

 or are persecuted for believing God’s word.

22 The seed that fell among the thorns

represents those who hear God’s word,

but all too quickly the message

is crowded out by the worries of

this life and the lure of wealth,

so no fruit is produced.

23 The seed that fell on good soil

 represents those who truly hear and

understand God’s word

and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty,

 or even a hundred times

 as much as had been planted!”

This Is The Final Judgment And

   You Are Standing

 In One Of These Two Lines

Right This Very Second.

Anyone Can Change Lines Before Death,

BUT NOT AFTER DEATH.

(5IS)

Matthew 25:31-46 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Final Judgment

31 “But when the Son of Man

comes in his glory,

and all the angels with him,

 then he will sit upon his glorious throne.

 32 All the nations will be

gathered in his presence,

and he will separate the people

 as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

33 He will place the sheep

at his right hand and

the goats at his left.

34 “Then the King will say

to those on his right,

‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father,

inherit the Kingdom prepared

for you from the creation of the world.

 35 For I was hungry,

and you fed me.

I was thirsty,

and you gave me a drink.

I was a stranger,

 and you invited me into your home.

36 I was naked,

and you gave me clothing.

I was sick,

 and you cared for me.

I was in prison,

and you visited me.’

37 “Then these righteous ones will reply,

 ‘Lord, when did we ever see you

hungry and feed you?

Or thirsty and

give you something to drink?

38 Or a stranger and

show you hospitality?

Or naked and give you clothing?

39 When did we ever see you

 sick or in prison and visit you?’

40 “And the King will say,

‘I tell you the truth,

when you did it to one

of the least of these my

brothers and sisters,

you were doing it to me!’ 

41 “Then the King will turn

to those on the left and say,

‘Away with you, you cursed ones,

 into the eternal fire prepared

for the devil and his demons.[d]

42 For I was hungry,

and you didn’t feed me.

I was thirsty, and

you didn’t give me a drink.

43 I was a stranger, and

you didn’t invite me into your home.

I was naked, and

you didn’t give me clothing.

I was sick and in prison, and

you didn’t visit me.’

44 “Then they will reply,

‘Lord, when did we ever

see you hungry or thirsty

or a stranger or naked

or sick or in prison,

and not help you?’

45 “And he will answer,

‘I tell you the truth,

when you refused to help

the least of these my brothers and sisters,

you were refusing to help me.’

46 “And they will go away

into eternal punishment,

but the righteous will go into eternal life.”

Focus,

If You Plan To Go To Heaven

Your Daily Focus Will Be

Your Personal Ministry And Not

Your Life In This World

(6IS)

1 John 2:15-17 New Living Translation (NLT)

Do Not Love This World

15 Do not love this world

nor the things it offers you,

for when you love the world,

 you do not have the love

 of the Father in you.

16 For the world offers only

a craving for physical pleasure,

a craving for everything we see, and

 pride in our achievements and possessions.

These are not from the Father,

but are from this world.

17 And this world is fading away,

along with everything

that people crave.

But anyone who does what

 pleases God will live forever.

You Have Just Read Above

What Pleases God.

Every Single Day

Of Your Life

You Must Choose

The Line

You Want To Stand In.

Before Continuing,

You Must  Understand

What  1 John 2:15-17

Above Is Teaching.

Your Body Is Your

Terminator.

It Has Zero

Understanding Or Concern

About The Real You And

The Eternal Existence 

Of You As A Spiritual Being.

It Struggles To Be Satisfied

Through The The Five Physical Senses,

Seeing, Hearing, Touching,

Smelling And Tasting.

That Is What The Focus 

Of This World Is,

How To Satisfy The Flesh.

This World Is Still

 The kingdom of satan.

God Makes It Very Clear,

This Is Not Our Permanent Home.

(7IS)

Hebrews 13:14 New Living Translation (NLT)

14 For this world is not our permanent home;

 we are looking forward to a home yet to come.

 

The Things That You

Have Received On This Earth

 That Satisfied Your Body, Your Flesh,

Are Not Blessings From God.

In Fact The Things That You

Embrace That Are Of This World 

Are Declared  To Be

Adulterous By God. 

(8IS)

James 4:4 New Living Translation (NLT)

You adulterers![a] Don’t you realize

that friendship with the world

makes you an enemy of God?

I say it again:

If you want to be a

friend of the world,

you make yourself an enemy of God.

There Are A Very Few Things

That Bring Satisfaction

To Your Body That Are

A Blessing From God.

We Are Blessed By God

When You Take The

Things Of This Earth,

Of This World And

Use Them To Share

The Word Of God With Others.

You Are Blessed By God

When You Take The

Things Of This Earth,

 And Use Them To

Meet The Needs Of Others That

 Are Suffering and Doing Without

The Basic Needs Of Life.

 As Explained In Matthew 25:31-46

(9IS)

Acts 20:28-35 New Living Translation (NLT)

28 “So guard yourselves and God’s people.

 Feed and shepherd God’s flock—his church,

purchased with his own blood[a]

over which the Holy Spirit has

appointed you as leaders.[b]

29 I know that false teachers,

like vicious wolves,

will come in among you after I leave,

not sparing the flock.

30 Even some men from your own group

 will rise up and distort the truth

 in order to draw a following.

31 Watch out!

Remember the three years I was with you—

my constant watch and care

over you night and day,

and my many tears for you.

32 “And now I entrust you to God and

the message of his grace that is able to

 build you up and give you an inheritance

 with all those he has set apart for himself.

33 “I have never coveted anyone’s

silver or gold or fine clothes.

34 You know that these hands of mine

 have worked to supply my own needs and

 even the needs of those who were with me.

35 And I have been a constant example

 of how you can help those

in need by working hard.

You should remember the

words of the Lord Jesus:

‘It is more blessed to give

 than to receive.’

 

God Teaches Us

Through Repetition.

(10IS)

Hebrews 6:10-12 New Living Translation (NLT)

10 For God is not unjust.

He will not forget how hard

you have worked for him and

how you have shown your love to him

 by caring for other believers,

[a] as you still do.

11 Our great desire is that you

will keep on loving others

as long as life lasts,

in order to make certain that

what you hope for will come true.

12 Then you will not become

spiritually dull and indifferent.

Instead, you will follow the example

 of those who are going to inherit

God’s promises because of

their faith and endurance.

 

(11IS)

2 Corinthians 9:6-10 New Living Translation (NLT)

Remember this—a farmer who

 plants only a few seeds

will get a small crop.

But the one who plants generously

will get a generous crop.

You must each decide in your

heart how much to give.

And don’t give reluctantly

or in response to pressure.

 “For God loves a person

who gives cheerfully.”[a]

And God will generously

provide all you need.

Then you will always have

everything you need and

plenty left over to

share with others.

As the Scriptures say,

“They share freely and

give generously to the poor.
    

Their good deeds will

be remembered forever.”[b]

10 For God is the one who provides

 seed for the farmer and

then bread to eat. In the same way,

he will provide and increase

your resources and then produce

a great harvest of generosity[c] in you.

(12IS)

God Is Very Serious

About Our Focus And Gives

A Very Serious Warning

For Our Protection.

(12IS)

Revelation 3:15-17 New Living Translation (NLT)

15 “I know all the things you do,

that you are neither hot nor cold.

 I wish that you were one or the other!

16 But since you are like lukewarm water,

neither hot nor cold,

I will spit you out of my mouth!

17 You say, ‘I am rich.

I have everything I want.

I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t 

realize that you are

 wretched and miserable and

poor and blind and naked.

Jesus Is The Word Of God

John 1:1-5 New Living Translation (NLT)

Prologue: Christ, the Eternal Word

In the beginning the Word already existed.
    The Word was with God,
    and the Word was God.
He existed in the beginning with God.
God created everything through him,
    and nothing was created except through him.
The Word gave life to everything that was created,[a]
    and his life brought light to everyone.
The light shines in the darkness,
    and the darkness can never extinguish it.[b]

John 1:9-14 New Living Translation (NLT)

The one who is the true light,

who gives light to everyone,

was coming into the world.

10 He came into the very

 world he created,

but the world didn’t recognize him.

11 He came to his own people,

and even they rejected him.

12 But to all who believed him

and accepted him,

he gave the right to become children of God.

13 They are reborn—

not with a physical birth resulting

from human passion or plan,

but a birth that comes from God.

14 So the Word became human[a]

and made his home among us.

He was full of unfailing

love and faithfulness.[b]

And we have seen his glory,

the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

Teaches Us In Christ Jesus

(7MS)

Acts 10:9-16 New Living Translation (NLT)

Peter Visits Cornelius

The next day as Cornelius’s messengers

were nearing the town,

Peter went up on the flat roof to pray.

It was about noon,

10 and he was hungry.

But while a meal was being prepared,

he fell into a trance.

11 He saw the sky open,

 and something like a large sheet was let down

by its four corners.

12 In the sheet were all sorts of animals,

reptiles, and birds.

13 Then a voice said to him,

“Get up, Peter; kill and eat them.”

14 “No, Lord,” Peter declared.

“I have never eaten anything that our

Jewish laws have declared impure and unclean.[a]

15 But the voice spoke again:

“Do not call something unclean if

God has made it clean.”

16 The same vision

was repeated three times.

Then the sheet was suddenly

pulled up to heaven.

God Uses Repetition

And To Direct Us

(8MS)

John 21:15-17 New Living Translation (NLT)

15 After breakfast Jesus asked Simon Peter,

“Simon son of John,

do you love me more than these?[a]

“Yes, Lord,” Peter replied,

 “you know I love you.”

“Then feed my lambs,” Jesus told him.

16 Jesus repeated the question:

“Simon son of John, do you love me?”

“Yes, Lord,” Peter said,

“you know I love you.”

“Then take care of my sheep,” Jesus said.

17 A third time he asked him,

“Simon son of John, do you love me?”

Peter was hurt that Jesus asked

the question a third time.

He said, “Lord, you know everything.

You know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep.

Acts 10:4-6 New Living Translation (NLT)

Cornelius stared at him in terror.

“What is it, sir?” he asked the angel.

And the angel replied,

“Your prayers and

gifts to the poor

have been received

by God as an offering!

Now send some men to Joppa,

and summon a man named Simon Peter.

He is staying with Simon,

 a tanner who lives near the seashore.”

Acts 9:36-42 New Living Translation (NLT)

36 There was a believer in Joppa

named Tabitha (which in Greek is Dorcas[a]).

She was always doing kind things

 for others and helping the poor.

37 About this time she became ill and died.

Her body was washed for burial and

laid in an upstairs room.

38 But the believers had heard that Peter

was nearby at Lydda,

so they sent two men to beg him,

“Please come as soon as possible!”

39 So Peter returned with them;

and as soon as he arrived,

they took him to the upstairs room.

The room was filled with widows

 who were weeping and showing him

 the coats and other clothes Dorcas

had made for them.

40 But Peter asked them all

to leave the room;

then he knelt and prayed.

 Turning to the body he said,

“Get up, Tabitha.”

 And she opened her eyes!

When she saw Peter, she sat up!

41 He gave her his hand and helped her up.

Then he called in the widows

and all the believers,

 and he presented her to them alive.

42 The news spread through

 the whole town,

and many believed in the Lord.

Stair Steps To Heaven

That Is About Listening And

Creating A Life Focus.

James 1:22-25 New Living Translation (NLT)

22 But don’t just listen to God’s word.

You must do what it says.

Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.

 23 For if you listen to

the word and don’t obey,

it is like glancing at your face in a mirror.

24 You see yourself, walk away,

and forget what you look like.

25 But if you look carefully

into the perfect law that sets you free,

and if you do what it says and

don’t forget what you heard,

 then God will bless you for doing it.

24 Then Jesus said to his disciples,

“If any of you wants to be my follower,

 you must give up your own way,

take up your cross, and follow me.

25 If you try to hang on to your life,

you will lose it.

But if you give up your life for my sake,

you will save it.

26 And what do you benefit if you gain

 Is anything worth more than your soul?

James 4:4-10 New Living Translation (NLT)

You adulterers![a]

Don’t you realize that friendship with the world

 makes you an enemy of God?

I say it again:

 If you want to be a friend of the world,

you make yourself an enemy of God.

Do you think the Scriptures have no meaning?

They say that God is passionate that the spirit

he has placed within us should be faithful to him.[b]

And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say,

“God opposes the proud
    but gives grace to the humble.”[c]

So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil,

 and he will flee from you.

Come close to God, and

God will come close to you.

Wash your hands, you sinners;

purify your hearts,

for your loyalty is divided between

God and the world.

Let there be tears for what you have done.

 Let there be sorrow and deep grief.

Let there be sadness instead of laughter,

and gloom instead of joy.

10 Humble yourselves before the Lord,

and he will lift you up in honor.

(14MS)

1 John 2:15-17

New Living Translation (NLT)

Do Not Love This World

15 Do not love this world

 nor the things it offers you,

for when you  love the world,

you do not have the love

of the Father in you.  

16 For the world

offers only  a craving for

physical pleasure,  a craving for

 everything we see, and

pride in our  achievements and possessions.

These are not from the Father,

but are from this world.

17 And this world  is fading away,

along with everything that people crave.

But anyone who does what pleases God

will live forever.

"Then Jesus asked them,

 “Would anyone light a lamp and

then put it under a basket or under a bed?

 Of course not!

A lamp is placed on a stand,

where its light will shine.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE BLESSED

(16MS)

Matthew 25:31-46 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Final Judgment

31 “But when the Son of Man

comes in his glory,

and all the angels with him,

 then he will sit upon his glorious throne.

 32 All the nations will be

gathered in his presence,

and he will separate the people

 as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

33 He will place the sheep

at his right hand and

the goats at his left.

34 “Then the King will say

to those on his right,

‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father,

inherit the Kingdom prepared

for you from the creation of the world.

 35 For I was hungry,

and you fed me.

I was thirsty,

and you gave me a drink.

I was a stranger,

 and you invited me into your home.

36 I was naked,

and you gave me clothing.

I was sick,

 and you cared for me.

I was in prison,

and you visited me.’

37 “Then these righteous ones will reply,

 ‘Lord, when did we ever see you

hungry and feed you?

Or thirsty and

give you something to drink?

38 Or a stranger and

show you hospitality?

Or naked and give you clothing?

39 When did we ever see you

 sick or in prison and visit you?’

40 “And the King will say,

‘I tell you the truth,

when you did it to one

of the least of these my

brothers and sisters,

you were doing it to me!’ 

41 “Then the King will turn

to those on the left and say,

‘Away with you, you cursed ones,

 into the eternal fire prepared

for the devil and his demons.[d]

42 For I was hungry,

and you didn’t feed me.

I was thirsty, and

you didn’t give me a drink.

43 I was a stranger, and

you didn’t invite me into your home.

I was naked, and

you didn’t give me clothing.

I was sick and in prison, and

you didn’t visit me.’

44 “Then they will reply,

‘Lord, when did we ever

see you hungry or thirsty

or a stranger or naked

or sick or in prison,

and not help you?’

45 “And he will answer,

‘I tell you the truth,

when you refused to help

the least of these my brothers and sisters,

you were refusing to help me.’

46 “And they will go away

into eternal punishment,

but the righteous will go into eternal life.”

I Do Not Care What

Anyone Has Told You,

God Makes It very Clear

In This Scripture You Will Stand

In One Of These Two Lines

 Based On Your Individual Acts.

 If You Died Today,

Which Line Would You Stand In?

(17MS)

Matthew 19:21   Mark 10:21   Luke 18:22

New Living Translation (NLT)

21 Jesus told him, “If you want to be perfect,

go and sell all your possessions and give the money

to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.

Then come, follow me.”

(18MS)

Luke 12:33 New Living Translation (NLT)

33 “Sell your possessions and

 give to those in need.

This will store up treasure for you in heaven!

And the purses of heaven never

get old or develop holes.

Your treasure will be safe;

no thief can steal it and no moth can destroy it.

 

Teaching about Money and Possessions

(19MS)

Matthew 6:19-20

19 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth,

where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and

 where thieves break in and steal.

20 Store your treasures in heaven,

 where moths and rust cannot destroy,

and thieves do not break in and steal.

 21 Wherever your treasure is,

there the desires of your heart will also be.

Living By The Above Scriptures

Is The Only Way To Fulfill

The First And Second Of All Commandments

(20MS)

Mark 12:29-31 New Living Translation (NLT)

29 Jesus replied,

“The most important commandment is this:

‘Listen, O Israel!

The Lord our God is the one and only Lord.

30 And you must love the Lord your God with

all your heart,

all your soul,

all your mind, and

all your strength.’

31 The second is equally important:

‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

No other commandment is greater than these.”

Only Through Listening

To The Word Of Truth

Over and Over and Over Again,

Will You Ever Comprehend

The True Concept Of

ALL

The Above Scriptures

Are The Only Way To Fulfill

The First and Second Of

All Commandments and Romans 12:1-2.

(21MS)

Romans 12:1-2 New Living Translation (NLT)

A Living Sacrifice to God

12 And so, dear brothers and sisters,[a]

 I plead with you to give your bodies

to God because of all he has done for you.

Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—

the kind he will find acceptable.

This is truly the way to worship him.[b]

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world,

but let God transform you into a new person

by changing the way you think.

Then you will learn to know God’s will for you,

which is good and pleasing and perfect.

God Is A God Of Focus and Perfection.

 He Is coming After His Body The Church

That Is Focused And Seeking Perfection.

(22MS)

Ephesians 5:26-27 New King James Version (NKJV)

26 that He might [a]sanctify and cleanse her

with the washing of water by the word,

27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church,

 not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing,

but that she should be holy and without blemish.

To Be Without Spot Or Wrinkle

Your Focus Must Be God's Word

And Others,

Not Yourself And

The Things This World Offers You.

You Are The Church And

Your Final Judgment Will Be Based

 On Your Works.

(26MS)

Revelation 2:13 New King James Version (NKJV)

Revelation 3:8 New King James Version (NKJV)

“I know your works.

and have not denied My name.

(33MS)

Revelation 3:15 New King James Version (NKJV)

15 “I know all the things you do,

that you are neither hot nor cold.

 I Find Helpful In Understand Scripture.)

(35MS)

Revelation 9:20 New King James Version (NKJV)

20 But the rest of mankind,

who were not killed by these plagues,

and their works follow them.”

(37MS)

12 And I saw the dead,

 small and great, standing before

 [a]God, and books were opened.

And another book was opened,

which is the Book of Life.

And the dead were judged

according to their works,

by the things which were written in the books.

13 The sea gave up the dead

 who were in it,

and Death and Hades delivered up

 the dead who were in them.

And they were judged,

each one according to his works.

(38MS)

Revelation 3:14-22 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Message to the Church in Laodicea

14 “Write this letter to the angel

 of the church in Laodicea.

This is the message from

the one who is the Amen—

the faithful and true witness,

the beginning[a] of God’s new creation:

15 “I know all the things you do,

that you are neither hot nor cold.

I wish that you were one or the other!

16 But since you are like lukewarm water,

neither hot nor cold,

 I will spit you out of my mouth!

17 You say, ‘I am rich.

I have everything I want.

I don’t need a thing!’

And you don’t realize that you are

wretched and miserable and

poor and blind and naked.

18 So I advise you to buy gold from me—

gold that has been purified by fire.

Then you will be rich.

Also buy white garments from me

so you will not be shamed by your nakedness,

and ointment for your eyes

so you will be able to see.

19 I correct and discipline

everyone I love. So be diligent and

turn from your indifference.

20 “Look! I stand at the door and knock.

If you hear my voice and open the door,

 I will come in, and we will share

a meal together as friends.

21 Those who are victorious

will sit with me on my throne,

just as I was victorious and

sat with my Father on his throne.

22 “Anyone with ears to hear

must listen to the Spirit and understand

what he is saying to the churches.”

(39MS)

Revelation 20:7-14 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Defeat of Satan

7 When the thousand years come to an end,

Satan will be let out of his prison.

8 He will go out to deceive the nations—

called Gog and Magog—

in every corner of the earth.

He will gather them together for battle—

a mighty army, as numberless

as sand along the seashore.

9 And I saw them as they went up

on the broad plain of the earth

and surrounded God’s people

and the beloved city.

But fire from heaven came down

on the attacking armies and consumed them.

10 Then the devil, who had deceived them,

was thrown into the fiery lake of burning sulfur,

 joining the beast and the false prophet.

There they will be tormented day

and night forever and ever.

The Final Judgment

11 And I saw a great white throne

and the one sitting on it.

The earth and sky fled from his presence,

but they found no place to hide.

12 I saw the dead, both great and small,

standing before God’s throne.

And the books were opened,

 including the Book of Life.

And the dead were judged according

to what they had done,

as recorded in the books.

13 The sea gave up its dead,

and death and the grave[a] gave up their dead.

And all were judged according to their deeds.

 14 Then death and the grave were

thrown into the lake of fire.

This lake of fire is the second death.

 

Choices,  Are You Making All The Right Choices

(40MS)

1 John 3:16-19 (NLT)

16 We know what real love is because

Jesus gave up his life for us.

 So we also ought to give up our lives

for our brothers and sisters.

17 If someone has enough money to live well and

 sees a brother or sister[a] in need but shows no compassion

how can God’s love be in that person?

18 Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other;

 let us show the truth by our actions.

19 Our actions will show that we belong to the truth,

so we will be confident when we stand before God.

The Above Scripture Is The Foundation

For Everything That

The New Covenant Stands For.

(41MS)

Acts 2:42-47 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Believers Form a Community

42 All the believers devoted themselves

 to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship,

and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper[a]),

and to prayer.

43 A deep sense of awe came over them all,

and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders.

44 And all the believers met together in one place and

shared everything they had.

45 They sold their property and possessions and

shared the money with those in need.

46 They worshiped together at the Temple each day,

met in homes for the Lord’s Supper,

and shared their meals with great joy and generosity[b]

 47 all the while praising God and enjoying

the goodwill of all the people.

And each day the Lord added to

their fellowship those who were being saved.

(42MS)

Acts 4:32-37 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Believers Share Their Possessions

32 All the believers were united

in heart and mind.

And they felt that what they

owned was not their own,

so they shared everything they had.

33 The apostles testified powerfully

 to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus,

and God’s great blessing

 was upon them all.

34 There were no needy

 people among them,

 because those who owned land or

houses would sell them

35 and bring the money to

the apostles to give to those in need.

36 For instance, there was Joseph,

the one the apostles nicknamed

Barnabas (which means “Son of Encouragement”).

He was from the tribe of Levi and

came from the island of Cyprus.

37 He sold a field he owned and

brought the money to the apostles.

Focus,  It Is All About Focus.

(43MS)

Colossians 3:1-4 New Living Translation (NLT)

Living the New Life

Since you have been raised

to new life with Christ,

set your sights on the realities of heaven,

where Christ sits in

the place of honor at God’s right hand.

Think about the things of heaven,

 not the things of earth.

For you died to this life,

 and your real life is hidden

with Christ in God.

And when Christ, who is your[a] life,

is revealed to the whole world,

you will share in all his glory.

(44MS)

Philippians 3:18-21 New Living Translation (NLT)

18 For I have told you often before,

and I say it again with tears in my eyes,

 that there are many whose conduct

shows they are really enemies

of the cross of Christ.

19 They are headed for destruction.

 Their god is their appetite,

 they brag about shameful things,

and they think only about

this life here on earth.

20 But we are citizens of heaven,

where the Lord Jesus Christ lives.

And we are eagerly waiting for him

to return as our Savior.

21 He will take our weak mortal bodies

 and change them into glorious

 bodies like his own,

 using the same power with which he

 will bring everything under his control.

 

(45MS)

John 17:14,16-19 New Living Translation (NLT)

14 I have given them your word.

And the world hates them because

they do not belong to the world,

just as I do not belong to the world.

16 They do not belong to this world

 any more than I do.

17 Make them holy by your truth;

teach them your word, which is truth.

18 Just as you sent me into the world,

I am sending them into the world.

19 And I give myself as a holy

sacrifice for them so they

can be made holy by your truth.

(46MS)

Matthew 6:19-21 New Living Translation (NLT)

Teaching about Money and Possessions

19 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth,

where moths eat them and rust destroys them,

and where thieves break in and steal.

20 Store your treasures in heaven,

where moths and rust cannot destroy,

and thieves do not break in and steal.

21 Wherever your treasure is,

there the desires of your heart will also be.

 

(47MS)

Matthew 7:15-20 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Tree and Its Fruit

15 “Beware of false prophets who come

 disguised as harmless sheep

but are really vicious wolves.

16 You can identify them by their fruit,

 that is, by the way they act.

Can you pick grapes from thornbushes,

or figs from thistles?

17 A good tree produces good fruit,

and a bad tree produces bad fruit.

18 A good tree can’t produce bad fruit,

and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit.

19 So every tree that does not produce

good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire.

 20 Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit,

 so you can identify people by their actions.

(49MS)

1 Peter 4:18-19 New Living Translation (NLT)

18 And also,

“If the righteous are barely saved,
    what will happen to godless sinners?”[a]

19 So if you are suffering in a manner

 that pleases God,

keep on doing what is right,

and trust your lives

to the God who created you,

for he will never fail you.

(50MS)

Acts 20:35 New Living Translation (NLT)

35 And I have been a constant example

of how you can help those

 in need by working hard.

You should remember the

words of the Lord Jesus:

‘It is more blessed to give

than to receive.’

(51MS)

Galatians 2:20 New Living Translation (NLT)

20 My old self has been

crucified with Christ.[a]

It is no longer I who live,

but Christ lives in me.

So I live in this earthly body

by trusting in the Son of God,

who loved me and gave himself for me.

(52MS)

Ephesians 5:25-27

New King James Version (NKJV)

25 Husbands, love your wives,

just as Christ also loved the church and

 gave Himself for her,

 26 that He might [a]sanctify and

 cleanse her with the

washing of water

by the word,

27 that He might present her

 to Himself a glorious church,

not having spot or wrinkle

or any such thing,

but that she should be holy

 and without blemish.

(53MS)

Titus 3:14 New Living Translation (NLT)

14 Our people must learn

to do good by meeting the

urgent needs of others;

 then they will not be unproductive.
