If your HEART is TRUE

 

James 1:5

King James Version

5 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.


What does it mean to have a TRUE HEART?

Simply, that you seek the LORD.

And that you seek Him with all your might.

And what happens when you do?

Expect these:

GOD will answer, in a way you can understand.

Everything will be made clear to you -- your life, your work, self, people around you, the past, present, and future.

You will be led to the Bible.

Your life will be Bible-based.

The HOLY SPIRIT will teach you Scripture.

He will help you understand the Bible in the simplest way.

You will find having a childlike, trusting heart is best.

You will begin to see the connections in your life.

You will be led to CHRIST.

You will understand all things Christ.

You will want to be born again -- God will make sure.

You will have no fear for the future -- all has been prophesied.

You will be guided by Spirit each day.

You will love the lessons about JESUS.

You will put all your trust, and faith, in JESUS.

You will want to share what you've learned -- the WORD of GOD.

You will know how to share the WORD.

GOD will teach you, every step of the way.

You will feel God's love for you.

You will know God's love for others.

You will want to tell them that.

You will know that ONLY GOD has CONTROL over EVERYTHING.

You will laugh at man's puny ways.

You will know it only takes ONE angel, appointed by GOD, to bind satan.

You will KNOW the POWER of JESUS.

You will understand the BEAUTY of His WORD.

You will have found your priceless pearl -- GOD, JESUS, the HOLY SPIRIT, the WORD of GOD.

You will begin to see, with a grateful heart.

You will begin to understand God's ways, through Scripture.

The world's ways will not alarm you.

JESUS will teach you about the RAPTURE.

You will welcome the Rapture.

You will alert people to it.

You know WHO and WHAT to trust -- JESUS, and His WORD.

You will be taught in a way that's perfectly attuned to your heart.

Never again will there be missing pieces in your life.

ALL will be MADE CLEAR.


And if you doubt all that, look here.

It's the body of work SPIRIT inspired me to work on.

Towards better understanding God, and His laws.

His Word, His Son, His Spirit, His plans.

Never again will you fear.

All will be made clear.

For JESUS is here.

The TRUTH of JESUS

 

Proverbs 8:1-4

King James Version

8 Doth not wisdom cry? 

and understanding put forth her voice?

2 She standeth in the top of high places, 

by the way in the places of the paths.

3 She crieth at the gates, 

at the entry of the city, 

at the coming in at the doors.

4 Unto you, 

O men, I call; 

and my voice is to the sons of man.


Do you know the TRUTH of JESUS?

More than you already know?

Or have been told?

Although this Proverbs chapter speaks of wisdom, it could very well be JESUS speaking of Himself.

How He began.

Who He is.

What He asks of us.

Proverbs 8:22

King James Version

22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, 

before his works of old.


Proverbs 8:23

King James Version

23 I was set up from everlasting, 

from the beginning, 

or ever the earth was.


Proverbs 8:24

King James Version

24 When there were no depths, 

I was brought forth

when there were no fountains abounding with water.


Proverbs 8:25-26

King James Version

25 Before the mountains were settled, 

before the hills was I brought forth:

26 While as yet he had not made the earth, 

nor the fields, 

nor the highest part of the dust of the world.


Proverbs 8:27-29

King James Version

27 When he prepared the heavens, 

I was there

when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

28 When he established the clouds above: 

when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

29 When he gave to the sea his decree, 

that the waters should not pass his commandment: 

when he appointed the foundations of the earth:


Proverbs 8:30-31

King James Version

30 Then I was by him, 

as one brought up with him: 

and I was daily his delight, 

rejoicing always before him;

31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; 

and my delights were with the sons of men.


Proverbs 8:6

King James Version

6 Hear; 

for I will speak of excellent things; 

and the opening of my lips shall be right things.


Proverbs 8:7

King James Version

and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.

there is nothing froward or perverse in them.

14 Counsel is mine, 

and sound wisdom:

I am understanding; 

I have strength.


Proverbs 8:15

King James Version

15 By me kings reign, 

and princes decree justice.


Proverbs 8:16

King James Version

16 By me princes rule, 

and nobles, 

even all the judges of the earth.


Proverbs 8:17

King James Version

17 I love them that love me; 

and those that seek me early shall find me.


Proverbs 8:18

King James Version

18 Riches and honour are with me; 

yea, durable riches and righteousness.


Proverbs 8:19

King James Version

19 My fruit is better than gold, 

yea, than fine gold; 

and my revenue than choice silver.


Proverbs 8:20-21

King James Version

20 I lead in the way of righteousness, 

in the midst of the paths of judgment:

21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; 

and I will fill their treasures.


Proverbs 8:10

King James Version

10 Receive my instruction, 

and not silver; 

and knowledge rather than choice gold.


Proverbs 8:13

King James Version

13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: 

pride, 

and arrogancy, 

and the evil way, 

and the froward mouth, 

do I hate.


Proverbs 8:32

King James Version

32 Now therefore hearken unto me, 

O ye children:

for blessed are they that keep my ways.


Proverbs 8:33

King James Version

33 Hear instruction, 

and be wise, 

and refuse it not.


Proverbs 8:34

King James Version

watching daily at my gates, 

waiting at the posts of my doors.

and shall obtain favour of the Lord.


Proverbs 8:36

King James Version

36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: 

all they that hate me love death.

The FOOLISHNESS in man

 

Romans 1:22

King James Version

22 Professing themselves to be wise, 

they became fools,


Why are things falling apart in the world?

Why does every day seem crazier?

Here's why:


We sin against God.

The people of ISRAEL sin against GOD

When NATIONS play the harlot

RATING your COUNTRY

The way of nations

Sins of society


But God allows our foolishness, for a time.

GOD gives ISRAEL the king THEY want


God knows what He's doing.

Bible DISCOVERY 20: WHY God ALLOWS Good and Evil to Coexist


He has His own perfect purpose.

For GOD's PERFECT PURPOSE


And just when we think we've really messed up, God shows up.

Why Does God Always Seem to Show Up at the Last Minute?


But look what happens, when God decides on a king.

When GOD decides on a KING


God's ways are truly different.

GOD's WAYS


His ways are pure.

The PURITY of GOD's WORD in an age of hybrids


Ours are, you know...

On sin


But God's Word stands.

The ONLY THING that will REMAIN


For, it's all been prophesied.

In the LAST DAYS


And God wants us to remember.

What GOD wants us to REMEMBER


In JESUS is our SALVATION.

JESUS


This, we must do.

It's ALL PREPARATION now

When JESUS ALERTS you to SOMETHING

 

The STILL, SMALL voice:

1 Kings 19:12

King James Version

12 And after the earthquake a fire; 

but the Lord was not in the fire: 

and after the fire a still small voice.


It's been two years.

The LORD JESUS alerted me to something VERY important.

Thus, SPIRIT and I wrote this:

The Most Intriguing Words of Jesus For Me


In so few words, I understood the urgency of the times.

Matthew 24:41

King James Version

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.


I understood the reality that one person, from two, could go missing.

Just like that.

So, that's what the RAPTURE was.

Many expound on it, calling it pre-trib, and all.

In my child's heart it was simple.

No time to waste.

JESUS alerted me already.

For myself, and others.

Time to get right with the Lord.

Time to obey His will.

Time to believe Him.

Time to repent.

Time to believe the gospel.

Time to warn everyone.

Time to be born again.

(Which I was, months before the warning.

Surely, that was the reason I heard the warning.)

I was already God's.

John 10:27

King James Version

27 My sheep hear my voice, 

and I know them, 

and they follow me:


The gospel -- the GOOD NEWS -- is that Jesus is coming.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

King James Version

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven 

with a shout, 

with the voice of the archangel, 

and with the trump of God: 

and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain 

shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, 

to meet the Lord in the air: 

and so shall we ever be with the Lord.


On a day only GOD knows.

Mark 13:32

King James Version

32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, 

no, not the angels which are in heaven, 

neither the Son, 

but the Father.


And so, I keep sharing the LORD's command:

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.


At the same time, deeply grateful for that whisper.

2 Peter 3:9

King James Version

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, 

as some men count slackness; 

but is longsuffering to us-ward, 

not willing that any should perish, 

but that all should come to repentance.


God really does love us all.

John 3:16

King James Version

16 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.


I have heeded the warning.

And have taken measures.

A born again listens.


Here are the measures:

AWARENESS of sin

REPENTANCE

HOLINESS

JUDGMENT

SALVATION

PRICELESS PEARL

 

Matthew 13:45-46

King James Version

45 Again, 

the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, 

seeking goodly pearls:

46 Who, 

when he had found one pearl of great price, 

went and sold all that he had, 

and bought it.


THANK GOD, I finally found the treasure I'd been looking for, all my life.

How I scoured bookshops to find the "pearl of great price".

How I've exhausted all research to find truth that satisfies my soul.

The day GOD made me born again 28 months ago, I began to see, as God wanted me to see.

I began to know His TRUTH.

The Bible became easy to understand.

Spirit and I ended up creating 37 blogs to "house" our findings.

But you can't find that treasure your heart dearly seeks, if your heart is not right with God.

The moment He sees your heart is true, He will practically deliver it to your door step, this thing you're searching for.

Well, I had been searching for God's TRUTH.

I looked everywhere, except where it was.

Right under my daily nose.

The Bible.

It kept eyeing me, as I eyed all other books.

But how could I understand God's pearl, until He gave me to His Son, so I may be instructed?

The search was agonizing.

It was lengthy.

But I had the faith, the patience, and the persistence.

I was tenacious in my research.

Long after everyone's gone from the bookshops, I was still scouring the titles.

Until I had hangnails from all that searching.

Hoping a title would jump out, and call me.

I had many false starts.

The information was always incomplete.

Oftentimes, acting too mysteriously.

Or vaguely.

Until God led me to His Bible.

Only then was my soul satisfied.

And I began to understand His WORD.

As easily as a child would.

God's words are clear, alive, and filled with His SPIRIT.

I don't need to go to theology school to understand the Bible.

The verses speak plainly to me.

Only the SPIRIT of GOD could do that.

My pearl of great price is God's WORD.

When I found it, I let go of all other books, all other things, all other habits that are not of God.

I only focused on the Bible.

Letting Scripture guide me each day.

It was my one, sacred treasure.

Matthew 13:44

King James Version

44 Again, 

the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; 

the which when a man hath found, 

he hideth, 

and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, 

and buyeth that field.


You'd probably ask:

What makes the WORD of GOD a pearl of great price?

Why the urgency to know it?

Why the importance?

It's because the WORD of GOD is ETERNAL LIFE.

In the LAST DAYS

 John 16:13

King James Version

13 Howbeit when he, 

the Spirit of truth, 

is come, 

he will guide you into all truth: 

for he shall not speak of himself; 

but whatsoever he shall hear, 

that shall he speak: 

and he will shew you things to come.


What are the last days?

Are we in the last days?

Scripture's got the answers.

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.


Luke 21:20

King James Version

20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, 

then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.


Matthew 24:3-12

King James Version

3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, 

the disciples came unto him privately, saying, 

Tell us, 

when shall these things be? 

and what shall be the sign of thy coming, 

and of the end of the world?

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, 

Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, 

I am Christ; 

and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: 

see that ye be not troubled: 

for all these things must come to pass, 

but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, 

and kingdom against kingdom: 

and there shall be famines, 

and pestilences, 

and earthquakes, 

in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, 

and shall kill you: 

and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, 

and shall betray one another, 

and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, 

and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, 

the love of many shall wax cold.


Matthew 24:14

King James Version

14 And this gospel of the kingdom 

shall be preached in all the world 

for a witness unto all nations; 

and then shall the end come.


Matthew 24:37-39

King James Version

37 But as the days of Noah were, 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood 

they were eating and drinking, 

marrying and giving in marriage, 

until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.


2 Timothy 3:1-7

King James Version

3 This know also, 

that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, 

covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, 

disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, 

trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, 

despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures 

more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, 

but denying the power thereof

from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, 

and lead captive silly women laden with sins, 

led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, 

and never able to come 

to the knowledge of the truth.


2 Peter 3:3-4

King James Version

3 Knowing this first, 

that there shall come in the last days scoffers, 

walking after their own lusts,

4 And saying, 

Where is the promise of his coming? 

for since the fathers fell asleep, 

all things continue as they were 

from the beginning of the creation.


Observe the world now.

Have these prophecies come about?

Are we truly in the last days?

Who shall be saved?

HOW do WE KNOW we have GOD's SPIRIT in us?

 

1 John 3:23

King James Version

23 And this is his commandment, 

That we should believe 

on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, 

and love one another, 

as he gave us commandment.


How do we know for sure God's Spirit is in us?

This verse says it all:

1 John 3:24

King James Version

24 And he that keepeth his commandments 

dwelleth in him, 

and he in him. 

And hereby we know that he abideth in us, 

by the Spirit which he hath given us.


If you are born of God, His Spirit dwells in you.

His Spirit would run strong in you.

But who are born of God?

Scripture has the answers.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


1 John 3:9

King James Version

9 Whosoever is born of God 

doth not commit sin

for his seed remaineth in him: 

and he cannot sin, 

because he is born of God.


1 John 3:10

King James Version

10 In this the children of God are manifest

and the children of the devil: 

whosoever doeth not righteousness 

is not of God, 

neither he that loveth not his brother.


1 John 3:11

King James Version

11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, 

that we should love one another.


In summary, we know God's Spirit is in us, for the following reasons:

1. We believe on the name of His Son, Jesus Christ.

2. We keep God's commandments.

3. We know, through the Spirit which God has given us.

4. We are born again.

5. We do not commit sin.

6. We are righteous.

7. We love one another.


Obviously, if we run contrary to the will of God, we are not born of God.

Galatians 5:17

King James Version

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, 

and the Spirit against the flesh: 

and these are contrary the one to the other: 

so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


Colossians 3:1-2

and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still:

to give every man 

according as his work shall be.


Revelation 21:1-7

King James Version

21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: 

for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; 

and there was no more sea.

2 And I John saw the holy city, 

new Jerusalem, 

coming down from God out of heaven, 

prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, 

Behold, 

the tabernacle of God is with men, 

and he will dwell with them, 

and they shall be his people, 

and God himself shall be with them, 

and be their God.

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; 

and there shall be no more death, 

neither sorrow, 

nor crying, 

neither shall there be any more pain: 

for the former things are passed away.

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, 

Behold, 

I make all things new

And he said unto me, 

Write: 

for these words are true and faithful.

6 And he said unto me, 

It is done. 

I am Alpha and Omega, 

the beginning and the end. 

I will give unto him that is athirst 

of the fountain of the water of life freely.

7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; 

and I will be his God, 

and he shall be my son.


John 10:27-30

and I know them,

neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

29 My Father, 

which gave them me, 

is greater than all; 

and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

30 I and my Father are one.


The WORD of GOD will give you the peace, and comfort, you need.

You can count on it!
