Truth Revealed By God
Chapter: Eternal Spirit (128-132)
READ Romans 8:1-6. So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving us his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. He did this so that the just requirement of the law be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit. Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control
your mind leads to death (J. NLT).
READ Psalm 50:1-4. The Lord, the Mighty One, is God, and he has spoken; he has sum- moned all humanity from where the sun rises to where it sets. From Mount Zion, the per- fection of beauty, God shines in glorious radiance. Our God approaches and he is not silent. Fire devours everything in his way, and a great storm rages around him. He calls on the heavens above and earth below to witness the judgment of his people (J. NLT).
READ Psalm 96:11-13. Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice! Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise! Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy! Let the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he is coming to judge the earth. He will judge with justice and the nations with his truth (J. NLT).
Devotional-Key to Understanding the End of Times and Angels
We ought to know that Jesus can take any form that He wishes in being God. You just never know when He may present Himself. It could be anywhere at any time. Jesus may come as a surprise when you least expect Him. I like to think that it will be obvious to everyone, but the way in which He describes it is “like a thief in the night…” This is important as to recognizing how He will save us, and how He will rapture His church. He knows all and sees all. This is what we must know. His Spirit is what redeems us and allows us to enter the kingdom of heaven. He has perfected the minds of His chosen and allowed them to know the future. We ought to be aware of our minds and control them, in order that we exist in a state that is pleasing to God. Jesus is the object of beauty that we are to follow. This beauty is His heart. For the heart is the inner man. This is what God judges in the end.

Chapter: Fountain of Living Waters
READ John 10:6-11. Those who heard Jesus use this illustration didn’t know what he meant, so he explained it to them: “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me were thieves and robbers. But the true sheep did not listen to them. Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures. The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep (J. NLT).
READ Romans 8:38-39. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow-not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below-indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord (J. NLT).
READ Habakkuk 3:2-4. I have heard all about you, Lord. I am filled with awe by your amazing works. In this time of our deep need, help us again as you did in years gone by.
And in your anger, remember your mercy. I see God moving across the deserts from Edom, the Holy One coming from Mount Paran. His brilliant splendor fills the heavens, and the earth is filled with his praise. His coming is as brilliant as the sunrise. Rays of light flash from his hands, where his awesome power is hidden (J. NLT).
Jesus reminds us that the entrance into him, through his body, is the gate for the sheep. We must acknowledge this during the second coming of Christ to fully understand how we may enter the kingdom of God and go back and forth from heaven to earth during the final days. During the final days and for all of time, this is how people have entered the kingdom of heaven, by walking into his body. We also are brought into an understanding that he has awesome power to protect the sheep that enter by the gate. In his hands glows radiance and power. We are to know that nothing can separate us from him, especially during the final days. Not demons, nor fallen angels, nor the devil himself can keep us from Jesus. He provides a light and a path for us to be hidden from all evil and the world without God. This dwelling place is our home and our fortress. Do not allow worries to keep you from God, for fear and anxiety is caused by the adversary. Do away with worry and overcome your fears.
(Key Point)-In the end, the sole objective of Satan is to cause division between the members of the body of Christ…reference the 7 Angels of Revelation-whom the devil hates…and the 12 Angels of Revelation….might they camouflage the Son of God?…remember also that the Father has given all power to the son…who is always in His body…He is never without His Father….God can do all things…
Isaiah 11:6 “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the falling together; and a little child shall lead them…
Ask yourself: “How can a little child lead people?” What does God mean in these words? Can a child take and adult form? Can the Son of God be a spiritually mature adult full of absolute wisdom and power? Think about it and then you might discover the power of God and where the Spirit of every person who believes in Christ exists, until God says that it is over and you had your opportunity, following the rapture…For the Angels know that the time is near…God knows the exact day, hour, minute, and second…
Also, reference history and the Bible…it will give you full insight to the end of days…
Key Point: Matthew 11:12 “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force…”
“But he that shall endure until the end, the same shall be saved…And this gospel (The Testimony of Christ) of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomi-nation of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, ) whoso readeth, let him understand:)….(It was all planned this way…)
