The Show Must Go On !

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:35). Let’s talk about Jesus, the only person that made it. Jesus said,And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.”(John 8:29). “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”(Hebrews 4:15). “For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.”(Psalm 119:89). God’s WORD must and will be fulfilled !! being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” (Philippians 1:6). It doesn’t matter if I screw up or you screw up, all the promises and prophecies of God’s WORD are going to be fulfilled ! You can have comfort in knowing this ! “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are you ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways,and my thoughts than your thoughts.”(Isaiah 55:8,9). “And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered. And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.” And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, “Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. And Jesus answering said unto him, “It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.” And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.” The way to fight the Devil is with THE WORD, like Jesus did. That’s why you should memorize verses. Please don’t let the Devil side track you.

 

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

 

 

Taking Correction and Gaining from it !!!

It is really hard for most of us to take correction because of our pride. They say the three hardest words to say are; ” I Was Wrong”, or “I am Sorry”. “Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.” (Hebrews 12:11). “For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.” (1Peter 2:20). In other words, if you take the correction and say; Well Lord I don’t think I deserved this correction, but I am going to receive it anyway, because I know I deserve it for all the times I did wrong and didn’t get rebuked or corrected for it. The boomerang comes back! Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7). This kind of attitude pleases the Lord and you will find his love and mercy, and blessings upon you! Remember God’s word says; If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.”(Job 9:20).By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life.”(Proverbs 22:4).He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?”(Micah 6:8). So take the correction and gain from it and grow in the Lord, don’t fight it.” Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? “(Galatians 4:16). Jesus said; “He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.”(John 12:48). Be thankful that someone cares about you enough to spend their time to try and help you. Have some  fear of the Lord, and respect of Godly counsel. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”(Proverbs 1:7). He that hath and ear to hear let him hear. We all deserve Hell and Prison anyway. “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”(Lamentations 3:22-23).“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”(Isaiah 53:6).Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.“(Proverbs 27:5-6).

 

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.       

 

James Chapter 3

My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.

Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.

Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:

But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.

Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?

Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.

This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

Friends

It seems most everyone is desiring to find friends. I have never had any good results in finding good friends, except Jesus Christ. This is what Jesus said about friends. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” ( John 15:13-15).  “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” (Proverbs 18:24). No man is an Island, we all effect one another, therefore chose your friends carefully, they will have a lasting effect on you.Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?” (Proverbs 6:27). Be careful, some people will just want to use you. “Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:” (Proverbs 22:24). Ask Jesus for the gift of discernment of spirits. A real friend will stick with you through thick or thin, good times or bad in sickness and in health. Jesus and my wife are the best friends I have ever found. Your friends don/t need an explanation and your enemies wouldn’t believe it anyway. Jesus said, he will never leave you or forsake you and that he would be with you always, even to the end of the world.(Hebrews 13:5b & Matthew 28:20). I have found that I don’t need any fair weather friends that distract me from a relationship with Jesus and that includes  relatives and myself. Some people are so into themselves that they love themselves so much and think they are so great and cool, that they just worship themselves more than God, who made them, and they are even always taking selfies pictures of themselves.He must increase, but I must decrease. (John 3:30).And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.” ( Matthew 10:36-38). But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.” (Mark 6 :4) I guess because if you hang around them a lot they will see what a bad guy sinner you really are and wont respect you or even read what you write, and think, “how could God speak through or use this guy.” Jesus only took Peter and James and John when he went up on the mountain and was transfigured and they heard the voice of God, ( Mark 9:2-4). ” And they all forsook him and fled.”( Mark 14:50). It is better to just have Jesus as your most trusted friend. Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight.”(Job 15:15). My job is just to deliver the message www.answersintheword.com and what they do with it is up to them. Maybe you could try and find a handful of trusted friends, sometimes it’s like finding a needle in a haystack, and watch out for that needle if you do find it, because it can prick you and hurt you pretty bad. May the Lord help you! It’s better to have no friends than bad friends.

HOPE FOR US ALL !!!

An Easter Message for all who need to be encouraged !!

Should We Forgive and Forget?

Should we forgive and forget? This is a good question. Peter (one of Jesus’s disciples) asked JesusThen came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.” ( Matthew 18:21-22). We should forgive everyone who ask us so we can be forgiven ourselves. Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.” ( Matthew 7:1-5).

You don’t have to forgive unless you want to be forgiven. “He that cannot forgive breaks down the bridge that he himself must cross over!” You don’t have to forget unless you want your sins to be forgotten. To not forgive and forget is like taking in a poison and can make you physically sick, and can even eventually kill you. It is better off for you personally to forgive and forget. Why carry around such heavy baggage, like a bag of unneeded rocks, or dirty laundry.

The Lord says, He takes away our sins, as far as the East is from the West, and guess what, they never meet. The devil is the only one that remembers our sins, so he can remind, and condemn us, and accuse us, God forgives and forgets our sins if we ask him. Are you like the Devil who remembers sins, or like God, and Jesus, and The Holy Spirit who forgives and forgets others sins and your own? They do things a lot different in Heaven than we do here on earth. Somethings we have to work on like being in a happy good place in Heaven, and earth. In fact you can have a little bit of Heaven right now by forgiving and forgetting.We don’t have to work for our Salvation, thank you Jesus, but we do have to work on our rewards and our relationship with Jesus. So if you forgive and also forget you will be pleasing the Lord and helping yourself ! How deep does your love go?  “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

 

Wisdom and Wise Speech

“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.” (Proverbs 25:11). Ask God for wisdom with your words and he will give ti to you. “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (James1:5).   “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” (Proverbs 21:11). Remember God created everything out of nothing by His Word. He just spoke creation into existence. Our words are so serious and important. If we only realized this we would be in fear of what we spoke. No man is an island we affect all around us by what we say.    “A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.” (Proverbs 29:11). Why open our mouths and remove all doubt? “Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.” (Proverbs 17:28). Whole wars have been fought and millions killed over Words.“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”(Matthew 5:9). Try & Pray & Think before you say.

                       JAMES 3: 1-18

“My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and  of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whither soever the governor listeth. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: but the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

 “Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” “Pray without ceasing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;” (Luke 18:1). We are supposed to be Ambassadors, and Representatives of Christ. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.” (Matthew 12:36). If you are cussing a lot ask Jesus to help you and forgive you, and he will. Choose your friends wisely and who you hang around with. They will affect you for good or bad. Do you want to please the Lord or not or do you even care? You should for your own sake and well Being. There are no neutrals in God’s eyes. You are either serving the Lord or the Devil !!! “From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.” (Matthew 16:21-28). “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”(Joshua 24:15). The Lord gave me this for me and you!!

Say this prayer if you want to be saved and born again: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

THE SPIRIT BEHIND SPORTS AND GAMING

 

 

In Nicaragua and El Salvador, over 20,000 people were killed in a war started over a football game. Ernest Hemingway said; you could eliminate most wars in Latin America by not allowing Football and Soccer which gets the people so worked up into a violent spirit that they actually want to kill each other and go to War.

THE ULTIMATE FULFILLMENT OF SPORTS IS WAR!

The devil wants to destroy you and one of his main ways of doing this is War. The worship of sports in all nations is actually a secret worship of War.

Sports is the worship of man, the worship of the flesh. All those people in those stadiums are not getting all excited about God, and Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. They are all getting excited about the worship of Man, and the ultimate fulfillment of Sports which is War, which is Man at his best which is his worst, which is War. All those people who get all worked up over sports whether at the stadium or at home or were ever they are, they are partaking of the so called “Good Sport” Spirit are being mass possessed by a violent spirit from the devil, to worship man, and the flesh, and lead them to destruction and War.

The Bible says; in Exodus 15:3 “The Lord is a man of War, the Lord is his name.” Ecclesiastes 3:8 says; “A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.” God’s army is a righteous army and his cause is righteous. If you want to get into the spirit of War, Join the Lord’s Army and take up your cross for Jesus Christ, and fight the spiritual battles against the devil and his demonic forces who are trying to possess the world through sports games and ungodly gaming apps !!! Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Matthew 26:52. “Meekness is no weakness, it is strength under control.” Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth, Matthew 5:5. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Matthew 5:9.

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

 

 

“TAKE YE AWAY THE STONE”

 

 

When they wanted Jesus to raise Lazarus from the dead, Jesus told them; “Take Ye Away The Stone”. (John 11:39). The people had to physically role away the stone from the entrance to the cave that Lazarus was buried in. Doing this was a test, and an act of faith showing that they believed Jesus’s Word. “Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.” (John 11:40b-44). Lazarus walked out of the cave alive !!! The Lord often requires some act of faith before he does a miracle. The Bible says “And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.” (Matthew 13:58). “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the WORD OF GOD, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without 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.” (Hebrews 11:1-6)                                    One day during a great drought, the whole town came out for a prayer meeting, and one little girl came wearing a rain jacket and rain boots and carrying an umbrella. Now that was faith in action, and people were amazed. “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:17). (for we walk by faith, not by sight:) (2 Corinthians 5:7). “And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, and saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.” (Matthew 8:5-13). “What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” (James 2: 14-26). Have you entered into another dimension of a life of Faith yet? Dive on in, the water is great !!!

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

 

 

 

 

Romans 8 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV) Part 1

 

This Chapter is one of my favorites. It is an excellent chapter to use for morning devotions.

  1. There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” The devil is always trying to condemn God’s children. Jesus is always trying to encourage and forgive God’s children. When we listen to the enemy we are not walking in the spirit, and walking by faith.

  2. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” Jesus said, “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32). The spirit of life in Christ Jesus is walking in the knowledge of the good news of the Gospel. Knowing that you are saved and forgiven, and you can’t loose your Salvation. Actually walking around in condemnation is denying what Jesus did for you ,when he died on the cross and rose from the dead. God wants us, His children to be a shining light, and full of JOY. We should be the happiest, most loving, most kindest, and forgiving people on the face of the earth, knowing that God’s Only Law Is LOVE, and that Jesus will always be with us, and that we don’t have to keep a bunch of rules from man to get to heaven.

  3. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:” Jesus went through all the things that we go through, so he could understand us and love us and have mercy on us, yet he is the only one who never sinned.

  4. that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”If we walk after the spirit and not after the flesh we are walking real righteousness. Please READ : “Real Righteousness”, in www.answersintheword.com

  5. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.” This doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy the pleasures of the flesh in the spirit. Think about that one. The things of the spirit are, Love, Forgiveness, and Mercy. God created us to love him and enjoy his creation forever, and to help others to do the same!

  6. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”Unforgiveness and a lack of love can cause physical sickness, but forgiveness which is being spiritually minded brings on life and peace.

  7. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” Like we said , “The Only Law of God is LOVE.” This is a very radical statement if you really think about it.

  8. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.” You can’t please God unless your are walking around in Love and Forgiveness like Jesus did. This is walking in the Spirit of God. “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good;and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy,and to walk humbly with thy God?” (Micah 6:8).

  9. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.” Remember that the sins of the flesh are nothing compared to the sins of the spirit, which are a lack of love, forgiveness, mercy and faith.

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
