 TREASURES FROM GODS WORD
 
The Lord thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little. (Deuteronomy 7:22)
We are not to expect to win victories for the Lord Jesus by a single blow. Evil principles and practices die hard. In some places it takes years of labor to drive out even one of the many vices which defile the inhabitants. We must carry on the war with all our might, even when favored with little manifest success.
Our business in this world is to conquer it for Jesus. We are not to make compromises but to exterminate evils. We are not to seek popularity but to wage unceasing war with iniquity. Infidelity, popery, drink, impurity, oppression, worldliness, error; these are all to be "put out."
The Lord our God can alone accomplish this. He works by His faithful servants, and blessed be His name. He promises that He will so work. "Jehovah thy God will put out those nations before thee." This He will do by degrees that we may learn perseverance, may increase in faith, may earnestly watch, and may avoid carnal security. Let us thank God for a little success and pray for more. Let us never sheathe the sword till the whole land is won for Jesus.
Courage, my heart! Go on little by little, for many littles will make a great whole.

 
 
 
DAILY PROMISE 
 

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13)

When Paul wrote that he could do all things through Christ, we have to understand it in light of his circumstances. Paul declares that he could find contentment (and even joy) in every situation. Though we may not be in the most desirable place, we should find contentment and joy, knowing that Christ will give us the strength to get through anything.

  King David said; [Psa 2:1 KJV] 1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? ...Because Pride, The Flesh and The devil have convinced the lost of this world that the only thing that matters is them, the great sea of humanity and the Global Community....My prayer is that this pestilence will open the eyes of the world and while they are on their knees, The Precious Holy Spirit will convict them of their lost condition through the preaching of the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross and His Resurrection from the dead, seated at The Father's right hand to make intercession for all who will come to him...... [Luk 21:28 KJV] 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh..

 GODS PLAN OF SALVATION

 

There is only one way to heaven

JESUS said: "I am the way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me.  (john 14:6) 

 

Good works cannot save you.

"for by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast." (ephesians 2:8-9)  

trust jesus christ today! here's what you must do:

  1. confess to God that you are a sinner, in need of a Savior.

"for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (romans 3:23)   

"wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" (romans 5:12) 

"if we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." (1 john 1:10)  

 

2         Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead

"for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (john 3:16)

"but God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us." (romans 5:8) 

"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." (romans 10:9)  

 

Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal saviour.

"for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (romans 10:10)  

 

3     Turn from sin and repent

Jesus said: "i tell you, nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." (luke 13:5)  

"and the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:" (acts 17:30)  

"for whosoever shall call upon the name of the lord shall be saved."  (romans 10:13)   

"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:" (john 1:12) 

"therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (2 corinthians 5:17)


if you have received jesus christ as your saviour, as a christian you should:

  1. Read your bible every day to get to know Christ better.

"study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 timothy 2:15)  

"thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." (psalms 119:105) 

 
  1. Talk to God in prayer every day.

"and all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." (matthew 21:22)  

"be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." (philippians 4:6)  

 
  1. Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other christians in a church where Christ is preached and the bible is the final authority.

"go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (matthew 28:19)  

"not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."
  (hebrews 10:25)    

"all scripture is given by inspiration of god, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" (2 timothy 3:16)  

 
  1. Tell others about Christ.

"and he said unto them, go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (mark 16:15)    

"for though i preach the gospel, i have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if i preach not the gospel!" (1 corinthians 9:16)  

"for i am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the jew first, and also to the greek." (romans 1:16)
