You might say, “ I am an atheist-I do not believe there is a God.” Well, God’s answer to you is, “The fool that said in is heart, there is no God,” (Ps. 14:1). Your unbelief in No wise alters the fact that God Is. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen. 1:1). “For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that remade, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse,” (Romans 1:20).
The Bible says, “ The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge (Provb. 1:7a). The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,” (Provb. 9:10a). You may have a master’s degree, but if you do not fear God, the knowledge you have is worthless. “Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men.” (I Cor. 1;25), and “The weakness of God is stronger than men,” ( I Cor. 1;25). “For what are a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his soul?” (Matt. 16:26). And this the condemnation that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil,” ( John 31:19). “As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one,” (Rom. 3:10-11).
There is only One God- “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.” (Isa. 4406).
God has only One Church Though the world has many religions, and though “Christianity has many denominations, God has only “One” Church.
Jesus said, “I am the Way, The Truth, and the Life: No man cometh unto the Father but by me (John 14:6). One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism” (Eph. 4:5)
How does one prepare to meet God?!,”’But with faith, it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He Is, and that He is a rewarder of them that DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM” (Heb. 11:6). “And Ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when Ye shall search for Me with all your heart,” (Jere. 29:13). “Repent and be baptized Every One Of You in the name of Jesus Christ for the Remission of Sins, and ye shall receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost.- For the promise is unto You, and Your Children, and to ALL that are Afar Off, even as many as the Lord Our God shall call,” (Acts 2:38- 39). “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord,” (Acts 3:19). Read Your Bible – “He that believeth on me, As the Scripture Hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water,” (John 7:38). “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them,” (Eph. 2:10). “And ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free,” (John 8:22). “If the Son therefore, shall make you FREE, you are free indeed,” (John 8:36). “Let us hear the Conclusion of the Whole Matter: FEAR GOD AND KEEP illS COMMANDMENTS: FOR THIS IS THE WHOLE DUTY Of. MAN” (Ecel 12:13).
“What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? God
Forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” (Rom. 6: 1-2). “For as many as are led by the spirit of God, they are the sons of God,” (Rom. 8:14).
Does God’s spirit lead a person to Sin? NEVER! Praise God, when we. really get saved, God gives us Power so that we don’t have to sin. “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall NOT inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor-adulterers, noneffeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the Kingdom of God.” (I Cor. 6:9-10).
“But, the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whore-mongers, and sorcerers, and ALL Liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death (Rev. 21:8) Real Christians do not so such things. The promise to the True Believers is that “God shall wipe away all tears and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow; nor crying: nor pain, for the former things are passed away (Rev. 21 :4). Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God,” (Matt. 4:4). He that hath an ear to hear, let him hear. The whole Bible is God’s word, and His will.
