The More U Do, The More I Do, SAYS YESHUA!!!!!!

THE MORE U DO, THE MORE I DO!!!! SAYS YAHWAH!!!!

Do u understand what that means? Before u answer… think first!

I can do more and do it better than u!  Remember that song  some used to sing, “whatever u can do, I can do better.”  That maybe what Yahwah is telling us now!!!! If you ever had a thought that you could do more than GOD can, you are fooling yourself. I will ask you where is your power? Most humans would say in my pocketbook, but a spiritual person would say in my prayers. Life as we live it, and do our own things as we see fit is what we do, or how we live. In other words, living as we see fit. Making our own  lives we live by. So we do more, we want more, we have more, we create more, we long for more, its more, more, more… U CREATE. U DESTROY, U LIVE BY OUR OWN LAWS, U CAUSE PAIN, U LOVE CHAOS, U ARE THE AUTHOR OF YOUR WORLD (U think) U CANNOT STAND  OR TOLERATE  JUST THINGS, MORAL LIVING, U HATE THE RIGHTEOUS, U FIGHT GOD, U LOVE ANYTHING AND ALL THINGS UNGODLY. U OBSESS WITH EVIL AND EVIL THINGS. YOU LOVE SATAN, AND HIS WORKS, U LIVE FOR HIM

BUT…The more u do, the more I do, says YAHWAH….. I LAUGH AT U, I TURN MY FACE FROM U, AND I WITHOLD MY PEACE FROM U AND MY BLESSINGS. I WITHOLD MY MIRACLES FROM U AND MY HELP. LOOK U NEED ME MORE THAN U WILL EVER REALIZE, but u are so foolish u will never know it. “I” ,says the Lord, will rise up your enemies against u, and u shall never be able to stand. u take me as a joke, but I laugh not. U laugh now, but I guarantee U will cry later. U lust today, but U reap tomorrow. Your memories are so short, but your sins are so long. U have no love, but for yourselves. U hate your neighbor and plot to do them wrong.  HOW many of U know the 10 COMMANDMENTS?

HOW MANY OF U CARE TO KNOW THEM? Have it ever crossed your mind that they were written for U?
The 10 Commandments List, Short Form

But U still do what U DO…

WHEN I SAY THE MORE U DO, THE MORE I DO, I MEAN LOOK AROUND..
LET ME GIVE U A LIST OF SOME OF THE THINGS I DO JUST FOR U PEOPLE…

I WILL SHOW U, SOMETIMES ITS BETTER TO SHOW U, THAN TO TRY AND TELL U. IN FACT I HAVE TOLD U BUT U REFUSE TO READ AND BELIEVE.

I sent My Word and raised up Adam and Eve from their state of death. U live in a state of death daily, and love it. I AM TRYING TO RAISE U UP FROM A STATE OF DEATH BUT U REFUSE TO ACCEPT MY LOVE AND HELP. I give u chance after chance after chance, but U do not see, are u blind, I think so. I have tried to open your eyes to the facts but yet u like being blind. I get tired of leading the blind if he likes being blind. I have sent Messengers, Prophets, Teachers and Preachers  like I did in the Bible days to help U turn from your wicked evil ways of living. But U love it!!! U can’t feel your hearts nor your faces but U love it!!!!  THINK People!! Do u REMEMBER when I destroyed the earth. Do u remember when I changed the face of the earth. U have cursed your own lands, and hearts. U bring the pain of the earth out, u have destroyed the very things that I gave u to help u live clean pure lives.  I will take away the very things u love. Do u remember when the Flood came, read about it in my Word. Do u know  why I sent the flood? For the very same reasons and the very same things u do today!!! I DO NOT FORGET BUT U DO!!! YOUR MEMORY IS VERY SHORT!!! BUT NOT MINE’S. I  only saved one family, but is anyone else worth saving today? DOES anyone obey me TODAY? Yes there are some worth saving, but I want u all to be saved! Is anyone worthy of my grace? Yes u all are. BUT WHEN WILL U COME TO REALIZE THAT?

THE  Flood was devastating, and so will the swift destruction that is yet to come. I AM like John the Baptist, one crying in the wilderness, because so few listen to my warnings. The ones who worship me in spirit and truth  know Me, and  believer MY WORD. THEY PREPARE FOR THEY KNOW WHAT IS TO COME. Those who do not know  me  will not know what to prepare for. When they see destruction in their land they do not understand what is happening. They  look to the government for answers, but what is the government unless I LET IT FUNCTION? They look to the wrong one, LOOK TO ME KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. LOOK TO ME THE LORD AND CREATOR OF EVERYTHING U HAVE IMAGINED AND SOMETHINGS U HAVE NOT IMAGINED. I ALSO GIVE LIFE AND I CAN TAKE IT AWAY. BUT U HUMANS ONLY LIVE BY WHAT U CAN SEE WITH THE EYES, BUT IF THE EYE IS GOURGED OUT THEN CAN U STILL SEE? NO. Your eyes have been sealed shut. But I the Lord will open them if u allow me to. I the LORD came here to earth to save u from yourselves,  and the sins that have overtaken u. The Flood then. Devastation and Destruction now! DEVASTATION & DESTRUCTION as U know and see it is just a taste of what is to come for U!! WHEN I SAY “A TASTE OF WHAT IS TO COME THAT IS WHAT I MEAN”. PEOPLE  “I PLAY NOT WITH U, LISTEN TO  THESE WORDS. DO NOT DWELL ON THE WRITER OF THIS BLOG, BUT LISTEN TO THE WORDS I SPEAK TO HER”.

THE WORLD IS SHIFTING IT IS CRYING OUT TO ME. LOOK AT NATURE, U CALL IT MOTHER NATURE. I CALL IT MY CREATION. I CALL IT MY EARTH.  THE EARTH KNOWS THE TIME, BUT U DO NOT EVEN KNOW, THE EARTH IS ANGRY WITH U. I GIVE U  DAILY TO CHANGE, BUT YET U DO NOT! SO THE EARTH IS ANGRY, FOR U BRING JUDGEMENT UPON IT. LOOK AT THE BEHAVIOUR OF THE ANIMALS IT HAS CHANGED. LOOK AT THE BEHAVIOUR OF YOURSELVES U HAVE CHANGED, U HAVE BECOME MORE EVIL AND WHEN EVIL PREVAILS U LOSE! When I say U lose I mean your lives. U KILL EACH OTHER MORE, AND LOVE IT. U PACK GUNS LIKE AS A  CHILD LOVES CANDY. U WANT TO KILL, U ARE HUNGRY TO KILL ANOTHER. BUT I THE LORD TELL U THIS “JUST AS SURE AS U LOVE TO KILL, SO DO I”. I SAY U LIVE BY IT U WILL DIE BY IT  HAPPENS EVERYDAY PEOPLE! WHEN U SEE IT U DO NOT RECOGNIZE IT, BUT U SHOULD, AFTER ALL U SAY U ARE WISE! BUT ARE U?  YES WISER BUT WEAKER. SO AS I SAY WHATEVER U HUMANS CAN DO I CAN DO MUCH MORE BETTER, DIVINELY BETTER, SUPERNATURALLY  BETTER! WHEN I THE LORD, DECIDES TO USE YOUR OWN HATES AGAINST U, TELL ME WHAT CAN U DO? REMEMBER I CAN DO IT MUCH BETTER! IF I GIVE U JOY, IT IS GIVEN  MORE ABUNDANTLY, WHEN I GIVE PAIN, I GIVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY,WHEN I GIVE, I GIVE ABUNDANTLY, WHEN I TAKE, I TAKE MORE ABUNDANTLY. YOU GET THE IDEA… SO LIKE I SAY I CAN DO IT BIGGER AND BETTER. OK  U WANT TO KILL EAH OTHER WITH ATOMIC WEAPONS, COUNTRY AGAINST COUNTRY. BUT I TELL U, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO IT UNLESS I LET U, AND WHEN I DO U WILL NOT EVEN UNDERSTAND IT.. YOU ARE ANXIOUS TO DESTROY EACH OTHER. WHAT IF I WAS JUST AS ANXIOUS, U WOULD BE NO MORE! SATAN HAS CLOSED YOUR MINDS TO THE TRUTHS IN MY WORD. PEOPLE WAKE U AND REPENT! SATAN IS USING SO MANY OF U AND U DO NOT KNOW IT. U THINK ITS YOUR POWER AND YOUR MIGHT, I LAUGH AT U, THE GREATEST LIE EVER TOLD.SATAN USES PEOPLE IN AUTHORITY AND THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE DECISIONS .

IT’S THE  PEOPLE THAT MAKE DECISIONS FOR ALL OF U, THAT WILL BRING ON THE WORST CONSEQUENCES. PEOPLE THAT MAKE DECISIONS FOR THE LIVES OF OTHERS, WILL SUFFER THE MOST. DEMONIC INFLUENCES CAN START FROM THE TOP AND TRICKLE DOWN TO THE MASSES. WHERE EVER THERE IS LITTLE INFLUENCE, SATAN  DOES NOT SEE U AS A THREAT. BUT THE MORE THE INFLUENCE, THE MORE SATAN WANTS U. HE USED POWERFUL PEOPLE TO DESTROY, AND TEAR DOWN. HE USES THE  INFLUENCIAL OF THE WORD TO CONFUSE THE MASSES. PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE SERIOUSNESS OF SATANIC INFLUENCES UPON THE POPULATION OF THE WORLD. THE UNSAVED LOOKS TO THE WORLD FOR ADVICE AND GUIDANCE. THE UNSAVED LOOKS TO EVIL PARTERNERSHIPS  WHICH LIVES UP TO SATAN’S EXPECTATIONS. WHEN U LIVE A CARNEL LIFE AND LIVE TO SERVE SATAN, U LOSE YOUR MOST PRECIOUS GIFTS AND OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE YAHWAH. BUT GOD IS PATIENT, AND WAITS FOR THE WORLDLY TO SEEK HIS FACE. THE WORST THING IS, MOST PEOPLE DON’T EVEN KNOW THEY HAVE BEEN TRICKED INTO SERVING SATAN. TO THEM ITS JUST LIVING THEIR LIVES OR JUST LIVING A NORMAL LIFE.  IT HURTS GOD TO SEE  MASSES OF PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THEM. THEY GIVE AWAY THEIR LIVES AS IF IT IS OF NO IMPORTANCE. THEY ACCEPT ANY OUTCOME, DECISIONS, OR REASONS AS TO WHY THEY LIVE AS THEY DO. IT IS SUCH A SAD THING THAT MOST PPEOPLE CANNOT SEE BEYOND THEIR NOSES.

WE WERE CREATED AS SUPERIOR BEINGS, TO SERVE AND LIVE FOR GOD. BUT  SATAN HAS  BEEN GIVEN CONTROL OF  THE WORLD AND HAVE BROUGHT SO MUCH CONFUSION, DESTRUCTION, DEVESTATION, HATRED, AND DECEIT. THE WORST THING ABOUT THAT IS THE WORLD LOVES IT. THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD HUNGER AND THIRST AFTER ALL THE UNRIGHTEOUSNESS THEY CAN ASSUME. THEY GET THEIR BELLIES FULL OF EVIL.  ANYBODY THAT KNOWS THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER, CANNOT TOLERATE THE SETTELING OF THE WORLD IN TO ACCEPTING AND LIVING FOR SATAN. WHAT HAVE THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD GAINED, FOR LIVING AS DEMONS AND PASSING ON THE WILL OF SATAN. YES SATAN GRANTS U YOUR HEARTS DESIRES, AND GIVES U WORDLY FAME, AND WEALTH,  BUT WHAT WILL BE YOUR OUTCOME? THAT STUFF IS ONLY TEMPORARY. IT LASTS FOR AS LONG AS U LIVE. BUT U WILL LIVE AGAIN.YOU LIVE THE EARTHLY LIFE, BUT THERE IS ANOTHER LIFE U WILL LIVE. BUT NOBODY LOOKS OR EVEN THINKS ABOUT THAT LIFE UNTIL THEY LAY UPON THEIR DEATH BEDS. THEN IT OH GOD, I NEED U LORD! SOME PEOPLE WANT THEIR GLORY ON EARTH, AND SOME CAN WAIT UNTIL THE OTHER LIFE. THEN AGAIN SOME HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO WAIT.

SOME HAVE SOLD THEIR SOULS FOR A GORGEOUS LIFE HERE ON EARTH, BUT CARE LESS ABOUT THEIR OTHER LIFE. BUT A TRUE CHILD OF GOD KNOWS. THERE ARE PREACHERS OR  LEADERS THAT HAVE CHOSEN TO LIVE FOR SATAN ALSO, AND HAVE TURNED PROPLE OF THE WORLD AGAINST, TRUE MEN OR WOMEN OF GOD. SOME ARE VERY POPULAR ON THE EARTH, AND HAVE ENLISTED IN SATANS ARMY, TO DECEIVE THE UNKNOWING, THE UNBELIEVING AND THE WEAKER CHRISTIANS. BUT I TELL U, I SEE AND OBSERVE IT ALL. NO I AM NOT SLEEP LIKE U HAVE BEEN LEAD TO BELIEVE. I WAIT FOR U. EVERYDAY HELL IS ENLARGING ITSELF, THAT IS NOT HOW I DESIGNED IT TO BE. BUT U HAVE MADE YOUR CHOICE.

THERE IS NOTHIG IN THE WORLD MORE IMPORTANT THAN U, THE PEOPLE. I WAIT FOR U, BUT U HAVE LITTLE TIME. WITH THE TIME U HAVE LEFT U NEED TO REPENT, AND ASK TO BE FORGIVEN. THERE IS NOTHING IN THE WHOLE WORLD AS IMPORTANT AS THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN IT. U ARE IMPORTANT TO ME, I DO NOT WANT TO SEE U LOST AND CONFUSED. BUT THAT IS THE WAY OF THE WORLD.

IT’S SUCH A SIMPLES THING TO LIVE WORLDLY AND CARNEL. BUT U HAVE TO HAVE A CHANGE OF HEART AND LIFESTYLE TO LIVE A GODLY LIFE. WHEN I SIT UPON MY THRONE AND LOOK AT THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH AND THEIR ACTIONS, IT FILLS MY EYES WITH TEARS. YES I WEEP FOR THE WORLD AND EVERYTHING IN IT. WHEN I SEE HOW U HAVE BEEN DECEIVED BY SATAN AND HIS WORKERS. IT GRIEVES ME.U HAVE THE WORD OF GOD TO LIVE BY, BUT U REFUSE TO USE IT. I WILL SEND MY WORD BY SOME TO HELP U UNDERSTAND. MY BIBLE WILL ALWAYS BE SOLD. BUT U DON’T BUY IT, BETTER YET, THEY ARE EVEN GIVEN AWAY FREE, BUT U IGNORE IT.

THERE IS SO MUCH I WANT TO SHARE WITH U, BUT U IGNORE ME AND MY WORD. YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO REPENT. BUT REPENT IS A ACTION, NOT JUST A WORD.

The PoWE’r in the sIN,or the sIN in the PoWE’r (intentional word errors in title)

LOVE THE SINNER HATE THE SIN

LOVE THE SINNER HATE THE SIN

Have you ever wonderd why someone in authority can be so cruel?

Have you ever wondered why some people love to inflict pain on others?

Have you ever paid attention to a person when they are inflicting sorrow on someone else?

Have you even seen a person’s face when they have done you wrong and know they have?

Have you ever watched someone when they have made you feel uncomfortable?

Have you ever come face to face with someone who has lied on you and you know it?

Have you ever needed a customer service representative’s help desperately, and they seemed to experience joy, in your disappointment, and  didn’t find a solution to your problem?

Have you ever tried to figure out how come some of us can’t experience pain, but joyfully give it?

Have you ever needed the mercy of others but none was there?

Have you ever suffered because of someone else?

Ever hoped relief would come but it never did?

Well you get the idea….

It is because of the PoWEr in sIN; or can I say the sIN is in PoWEr.

That literally means:

The sINner has PoWEr in their sIN nature. When a sINner exerts PoWEr the outcome is always a sINful one. So whenever a sINner is given poWEr, it is always – ALWAYS used in the wrong way.

How and why can I say that?

LOOK AROUND…. Listen….. Comprehend… Analyze… Think…. Be Quiet… Pause for a moment…Slow down….Meditate on things…. Hush…Reason…Watch… Observe…Pay attention….Perceive…Recognize… Seek…Get the picture…Grasp…See… See through…Understand….Search…Be aware…Catch on…Know…Realize…Take in…Be informed…Gather…Hear..Learn…Process….

Look at people, watch them, you don’t have to stare

Listen to people, hear them

Watch people; in other words observe them…. Friends, Family, Associates, Strangers, Church Members, Co-Workers, Instructors, The Pastor(s), the People you watch on TV, the Entertainers, the President of the US, the People that occupy the Senate, the Congress, Police Officers, Judges, the Persons that occupy the seats in the Supreme Courts, your Neighbors, the Cashiers at the corner store, Teachers,  Bankers, People you trust, People you don’t trust!!!! Just open up your eyes, and mind…

What do you see, who do you see?  You see a people, you see a person, who are human like you, like me; all having a natural tendecy to sin!

Watch how they act, watch the things they do, pay attention to the things they say, just observe and the conclusion is usually the same. We all SIN. The key is there is PoWEr in sin. Yes PoWEr, but guess what! It’s the WRONG kind of PoWEr! Having or possessing the wrong kind of power can be DEADLY!

Deadly is what it causes. If we can just think about all the hurtful things that we have done or others have done to us. It causes sickness, broken hearts, ulcers, mental illnesses, emotional illnesses, cancer, stress, sleeplessness, more than normal doctor’s visits,  you get the idea.

Example: I had broken my leg and had to have a metal rod placed in it, so I got behind in my house note, I couldn’t work right then. So Wells Fargo did everything to take my house. They put it up for sale about 10-15 times with a sale date,  people coming by to take pictures and  just to look at it, I had to go to court several times to try to keep it. It was such a stressful event. I cried a many days and nights, because I have lived in the house for 19 years, raised my children there, and was almost through paying for it. But do you think they tried to work anything out with me NO!! They just wanted the house, no matter what, but God….! Do you think they cared about my sleepless nights, my sore eyes caused by crying, my ulcers, my high blood pressure, NO! NO! and NO!!! No compassion, no understanding, no sympathy, no nothing, but repeated sale dates, and lying home preservationists specialist, and I am still going through it with them. Every papers I sent them was never received they say, so I sent papers about 50 times for the same things. See I often say : it’s me today, but it could be you tomorrow!  Where was I going to go, no money, no help, no nothing? Some of the people I tried to talk to about it didn’t care oh well it wasn’t them. The people at Wells Fargo seemed to demonstrate no interest what so ever. But God!!!! The lawyer I hired was in it for the money I guess, because I still had to get NACA-The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (“NACA”) to help me keep my home. The trustee was a joke. But God!!! It was like hell… But God… SO who really cares when, you’re in something that too much for you to withstand ….But My Lord, Keeper and Messiah Yeshua… He cared enough for me to see me through and touch somebody’s heart to help me and that was NACA-The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (“NACA”)!!!! I share with you an example of an ordeal in my life, that demonstrates, what happens when a sinner has power to hurt people. People die everyday; because some types of stresses have pushed them to a point in their lives that can be too overwhelming for them. Because PoWEr has been distributed to the wrong people or person. We are all sinful and I am not trying to specifically say Wells Fargo is a bad company, but sometimes the people a company hires have no interest in helping the customer. Their basic intentions are to help themselves. So if say for instance I was hired in public service, to help others, but the goal of helping people had somehow been pushed aside, then why am I there. So in helping myself I have forgotten why I was hired in the first place. But the main thing is when you can’t even complain to a supervisor, because they are there to help themselves also. So who’s helping the customers NOBODY. But if one can only remember that people are human and have needs and feelings.  The company staff should be able to help, in positive way, but their positive ways are a self greed solution, that is beneficial to the company. Somehow you would think they could  find a way to help me, not hurt me.

But I forgive everybody that have  or had something to do with my housing situation. God has forgiven me so I must forgive them. God forgave, so I must forgive. It doesn’t matter how they have treated me unfairly, in my housing situation. God will deal with them individually. But as for me I forgive. I hurt, I  fasted and I forgave.

The key is the word SOMEHOW!!!!  Somehow help them, somehow make it work, somehow get their needs met. But that seems to be a thing of the past! “I think customer service died on the cross with Jesus“. But you see Jesus rose up for us all with all POWER!

HIS POWER IS THE GOOD POWER! Power to do things right. Power to love others. Power to end the suffering. Power to be helpful and not hurtful. Power to be kind. Power to bear another burdens. Power to smile. Power to make wrong things right. Power to bring joy. Power to find a solution. Power to understand. Power to have compassion. Power to overcome. Power to be positive. Power to do.  Power to be unselfish. Power to be brave enough to do the morally right things.  Power to care. Power to have courage. Power to be courteous. Power to become devoted. Power to empathize. Power  to use faith. Power to gain wisdom. Power to trust. Power to know the difference. Power to be strong. Power to be sincere. Power to demonstrate integrity. Power to hope. Power to seek the truth,  and I know you’re getting the idea…

Where is the Christ-Like POWER? Where would you look for Christ – like Power? Answer: Within each of us! It has to be nurtured. It has to be discovered. It has to be used. It has to be demonstrated in our actions. It’s there, but we fight so hard not to use it. It have to be practiced. IT’s there, every one of us was created by The Lord, Yahweh, with it already installed.

HE the Lord Yeshua GAVE IT TO US, BUT WE JUST DON’T USE IT! Why? Because it is so easy not to use it! If we use the Power God gave us , then we have to have to acknowledge Christ our Lord. So we are not going to do that, because it will make us judge other less and love others more. It will make us look up to others and not down on them. It will make us see others through the eyes of Christ our Saviour. See others as Christ sees us.  It will cause us to sin less and strive to live holy and righteous.

“But as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written:
‘Be holy, because I am holy'” I Peter 1:15-16

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect”
Matt. 5:48

“And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure”
I John 3:3

“Whoever claims to live in him MUST walk as Jesus did” I John 2:6

LESSON FOR OCTOBER 14, 1984

(“I like to use old references because they are like rare antiques, real and authentic and they never need to be Biblically updated-God’s Word never changes”  jerald gainous )

Motives for Moral Living

KEY VERSE: “Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others”. —Philippians 2:4

New Century Version -“Do not be interested only in your own life, but be interested in the lives of others”. Philippians 2:4

SELECTED SCRIPTURE: Philippians 2:1-13

ALL mankind should, of course, strive to live blameless, moral lives; but our lesson is specially directed to those who call themselves Christians. The Scriptures throughout present Jehovah God as a righteous, loving God. His entire universe is founded on the principles of righteousness and justice, and whatsoever is out of harmony with these godly principles is out of harmony with the person and character of the great Creator himself. Speaking to his typical people Israel God said, “Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.”—Lev. 19:2

That this admonition applies also to God’s antitypical people of the Gospel Age is confirmed by the Apostle Peter. Addressing his remarks to the church he says, “As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; since it is written, You shall be holy, for I am holy.”—I Pet. 1:14-16, RSV

Surely, we can have nothing but deep, heartfelt love for that Just and Holy One who first of all gave us the incomparable blessing of life itself, and then demonstrated His continued love for sinful mankind by sending His only begotten Son to redeem us from our sins! Surely, a proper realization of such supreme love should rouse within each one who calls himself a child of God the desire and determination to return that love of our Heavenly Father to the best of his ability! And this we can do, the Apostle John points out, by sincerely striving to keep his righteous commandments. “For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments.” If we keep God’s commandments, we have his assurance that we are his children, and may entertain the glorious hope of being with our Lord Jesus in the kingdom!—I John 5:3

And how could anyone who calls himself a Christian—a footstep follower of our Lord Jesus—not have an unsurpassed motive for moral living! How could any who is trusting in the merit of Jesus’ sacrifice not wish to show his love and appreciation for his Master by following to the best of his ability the perfect example of him who was holy, harmless, undefiled, and separate from sinners? How our hearts are touched as our gratitude and love daily increase for that selfless one “who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works”? (Titus 2:13,14) If we truly love him who died for us, if we truly appreciate his love for us, we will daily endeavor to keep his righteous commandments; for Jesus said, “If ye love me, keep my commandments. … If a man love me, he will keep my words; and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” (John 14:15,23) What greater motivation to live a righteous life could one possibly imagine!

And what of our responsibility to our brethren, who are walking daily in the same narrow way of sacrifice and suffering? The Apostle Paul cautioned Timothy, “If any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” Paul here, of course, is speaking of the material needs of the brethren. But an even greater need of the brethren is for spiritual provision. Thus Paul instructed Timothy, “Be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation [conduct], in charity [love], in spirit, in faith, in purity. … Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine [teaching]; … for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.” (I Tim. 4:12,16) Continue in them, Paul says; for this is not the work of a moment, but rather the work of a Christian lifetime. Thus Jesus told his disciples, “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”—John 15:12,13

Long ago the psalmist David asked, “Who shall ascend into the hill [kingdom] of the Lord, or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.”—Ps. 24:3-5

Who could wish—or who could possibly find—a greater motivation for righteous living!

You see a people, who are human like you: all having a natural tendency to sin!

So Is It the PoWE‘r in the sIN, Or Is It The sIN in the PoWE’r? You decide!

WE IN SIN…. But God!!!
