Religion or RELATIONSHIP?

 

Philippians 1:9-10

King James Version

9 And this I pray, 

that your love may abound yet more and more 

in knowledge and in all judgment;

10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; 

that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.


ALL, or nothing.

That's how I approached everything.

I didn't want tidbits.

I wanted the WHOLE picture.

That's how I sought GOD, and His TRUTH.

Of course, He showed up, when HE thought I was ready.

And not a moment earlier.

He sent His SPIRIT to teach me.

EVERYTHING I needed to know.

He knew the travails of my heart.

He knew I'd come around.

He knew I was initiated as a Roman Catholic.

He knew I'd ask many questions.

He knew I'd challenge many rituals.

He saw all that percolating in my heart.

He waited for the day I couldn't figure things out anymore.

He waited for the day nothing worked for me anymore.

He waited till I surrendered.

TOTALLY.

Remember, it's ALL, or nothing, for me.

And that's when GOD received me as the prodigal daughter.

Opening His arms wide, He received me into His fold.

And I haven't looked back since.

SCRIPTURE has become my go-to.

For ALL of GOD's TRUTH.

Now, I know WHAT to pray for.

Now, I know WHO to pray to.

Now, I know HOW to pray.

Now, I know WHERE to find His truth.

Now, I know WHEN Jesus will show up.

Which is ANY moment GOD chooses.

Religion, or relationship?

Which one matters most?

I found something else.

SPIRIT led me to it.

RECONCILIATION.

2 Corinthians 5:17-19

King James Version

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, 

he is a new creature: 

old things are passed away; 

behold, all things are become new.

18 And all things are of God, 

who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, 

and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

19 To wit, 

that God was in Christ, 

reconciling the world unto himself, 

not imputing their trespasses unto them; 

and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.


Psalm 119:97

King James Version

97 O how love I thy law! 

it is my meditation all the day.

The MOST BEAUTIFUL thing that can EVER happen to ANYONE

 

John 11:40

King James Version

40 Jesus saith unto her, 

Said I not unto thee, 

that, if thou wouldest believe, 

thou shouldest see the glory of God?


Ever experienced the most beautiful thing in the world?

I have, just moments ago, as I prepared to sleep.

As I was praying, and thanking GOD, my heart warmed at the thought, and realization, that had GOD not made me born again 29 months ago, I would not have been so appreciative of everything.

My family, my work, my life, the people around me.

And most especially the love from JESUS, who I pray to every night, and every moment because I am just glad to be alive and useful, or when I need to thank, or ask a question, or guidance.

Had I not been born again, I'd have missed becoming aware of the beauty of my imperfect life, the love from God, the kindness of people around me, and the longsuffering of people around the world. 

Had I not been born again, I'd not have seen the whole mosaic of my life, how the pieces fit so intricately together, in a design all GOD's own.

What we think may be imperfect lives, from imperfect people, is actually GOD's design.

For His PERFECT purpose.

He's waiting for us to wake up, and see the beauty and blessings of our lives, especially with Him at the helm.

Had I not been born again, I'd still be wondering how to make money, how to make ends meet, what work to do.

Because God made me born again, I surrendered all such knowledge to Him.

Matthew 10:29-31

King James Version

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? 

and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

31 Fear ye not therefore, 

ye are of more value than many sparrows.


Money has not become an issue anymore, for where I'm going one day, I won't be needing any.

I will be leaving everything behind.

Just as you will be.

GOD provides what I need each day, and only He knows EXACTLY what I need.

Because I'm born again, I marvel at the MAGNIFICENT mysteries in Scripture, and yet SPIRIT helps me understand perfectly.

Because I'm born again, I'm completely focused on CHRIST alone.

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above

not on things on the earth.


Because I'm born again, I realize only through JESUS can I do anything.

John 15:5

King James Version

5 I am the vine, 

ye are the branches: 

He that abideth in me, 

and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing.


I wish this upon all of you.

That you surrender to GOD, ask for forgiveness for all your sins, and let Him lead the way.

Only GOD knows what's best for us.

Only He knows our heart.

We were all destined for something.

And I thank JESUS for showing me my path, and my destination, over two decades ago, from dreams past.

That was even BEFORE He made me born again.

What an AWESOME GIFT from the LORD!

Now that I'm born again, everything's so much clearer.

There is no more struggle, no more confusion, only peace, joy, clarity, and surrender.

All that I need to know, I pray for, and an answer is given, by leading me to Scripture, or by a seeming random thought, or idea.

So many prompts are given each day.

SPIRIT teaches me each moment.

Like I ought to have been asleep already, but as has been the case for two straight nights now, I have to get up and write.

And tell you all about it.

SURRENDER your tiny knowledge to GOD's infinite WISDOM, and watch what happens.

I am living testimony of it.

The gate to heaven is by being born again, in CHRIST.

For JESUS is the DOOR of the SHEEP.

FEAR in PERSPECTIVE

 

2 Timothy 1:7

King James Version

7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; 

but of power, 

and of love, 

and of a sound mind.


There is power, in knowing what to fear.

And what not to fear.

SPIRIT and SCRIPTURE reveal what you need to know.

Fear will be put in its proper perspective.

You will come to know TWO important things.

Such as:

FEAR GOD.

FLEE evil.


Scripture testifies of it.

FEAR GOD.

Proverbs 1:7

King James Version

7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge

but fools despise wisdom and instruction.


FLEE evil.

1 Thessalonians 5:22

King James Version

22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.


When you become GOD's own, watch what happens.

James 4:7

King James Version

7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. 

Resist the devil, 

and he will flee from you.


The one who makes you disobedient, who twists all truth, creating senseless fear and confusion in you, will be the one to flee.

For you are deeply-rooted in GOD's WORD.

You've come to know GOD's TRUTH.

John 8:32

King James Version

32 And ye shall know the truth, 

and the truth shall make you free.


In GOD's SPIRIT, is LIBERTY.

2 Corinthians 3:17

King James Version

17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: 

and where the Spirit of the Lord is, 

there is liberty.


How fearful the enemy is of JESUS.

James 2:19

King James Version

19 Thou believest that there is one God; 

thou doest well: 

the devils also believe, 

and tremble.


Rightfully so.

For this is the POWER of JESUS:

Revelation 1:17-18

King James Version

17 And when I saw him, 

I fell at his feet as dead. 

And he laid his right hand upon me, 

saying unto me, 

Fear not; 

I am the first and the last:

18 I am he that liveth, 

and was dead; 

and, behold, 

I am alive for evermore, 

Amen; 

and have the keys of hell and of death.


NOTEThe greater the desire to share GOD's WORD, the greater the obstacles. This article wanted to write itself, but the enemy lurked by, giving me great difficulty in writing it, but God's will cannot be thwartedGOD's will be done.

Knowing RIGHT from wrong

 

Proverbs 3:5-6

King James Version

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; 

and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, 

and he shall direct thy paths.


There is only ONE sure way of knowing RIGHT, from wrong.

You must be born again.

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.


Unless you're born again, you won't be gifted with the SPIRIT of GOD.

Acts 2:38

King James Version

38 Then Peter said unto them, 

Repent, 

and be baptized every one of you 

in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, 

and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.


Only through SPIRIT can you know GOD's laws, and understand them.

Only through SPIRIT can Scripture be made clear.

Only through SPIRIT can you understand the teachings of JESUS.

SPIRIT makes everything easy to understand.

There's no subterfuge.

That's the enemy's way.

SPIRIT's way is truth and clarity.

You will surely know RIGHT, from wrong.

Scripture will tell you.

GOD's WORD is pure, perfect, and precise.

Hebrews 4:12

King James Version

12 For the word of God is quick, 

and powerful, 

and sharper than any twoedged sword, 

piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, 

and of the joints and marrow, 

and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.


JESUS' WAYS are grace, and truth.

John 1:17

King James Version

17 For the law was given by Moses, 

but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.


How does one become born again?

-- SURRENDER to GOD.

-- ADMIT you don't know right, from wrong.

-- PRAY that He help you.

-- PRAY to know His WILL and WAYS.

-- ASK for forgiveness, for all sins known, and unknown.

That's the only way GOD will show up.

Through your humility.


We MUST get right with the LORD now.

JESUS very plainly said it here:

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.


Matthew 24:39-42

King James Version

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

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

40 Then shall two be in the field; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; 

the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: 

for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.


JESUS is waiting for us to repent.

We've all sinned.

We may not know it, we may not want to admit it, but we've all sinned.

Scripture testifies of it.

Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;


We carry the original sin of Adam and Eve.

We also have our own brand of sinfulness in this world.

It's better we judge ourselves now, that we might be worthy of the LORD.

1 Corinthians 11:31-32

King James Version

31 For if we would judge ourselves, 

we should not be judged.

32 But when we are judged, 

we are chastened of the Lord, 

that we should not be condemned with the world.


Let's get RIGHT with GOD now.

Become born again, and be taught by SPIRIT.

In preparation for the ETERNAL LIFE to come.

Being born again will open your eyes, spiritually.

You will know ALL you need to know about GOD.

You will realize how you have sinned.

ALL will be made clear, through GOD's SPIRIT.

You will ALWAYS know RIGHT, from wrong.

SCRIPTURE will make sure.

WORRIED about your KIDS?

 

Isaiah 41:13

King James Version

13 For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, 

saying unto thee, 

Fear not; 

I will help thee.


Worried about your kids?

Have they gone silent?

Have they become unreachable?

There's real help here.


The world's gone digital.

Kids keep pretty much to themselves.

All cooped up in their digital world.

Hooked up with social media, and entertainment.

Bombarding their brains with dangerous stuff.

With the covid crisis, we've heard about rise in suicides.

It's a crazy world that doesn't make sense.

Only because the world has turned their back on GOD.

Even as it's all been prophesied.

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.


But fret not.

There's real help from the HOLY SPIRIT.

He inspired me to create a blog two days ago.

A note for young people.

They can read the posts, in private.

Let the WORD of GOD speak to them instead.

Let the HOLY SPIRIT come upon their hearts, triggering awakening, as only SPIRIT can do.

JESUS is in EVERY article.

All you have to do, is share the blog with them.

Let the SPIRIT of GOD take care of the rest.

GOD knows who are His.

2 Timothy 2:19

King James Version

19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, 

having this seal, 

The Lord knoweth them that are his

And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ 

depart from iniquity.


And those who are His, hear His voice.

Find comfort in these verses:

John 10:27-30

King James Version

27 My sheep hear my voice, 

and I know them, 

and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; 

and they shall never perish, 

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.


Please share a note for young people with your beloved kids, and all young people who you feel may need the WORD of GOD.

I would also be grateful if you can share this post you're reading now, with other worried adults.

This is for you, as it is for the young.

Only the WORD of GOD can save us now.

For these are very dark days.

Let not the enemy snatch them.

How do you KNOW you are SPIRITUALLY mature?

 

Job 5:17

King James Version

17 Behold, 

happy is the man whom God correcteth: 

therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:


How can you gauge your spiritual maturity?

Really simple.

You LOVE being corrected by the LORD.

You love learning from Scripture.

You enjoy being born again.

You've learned to pray, as JESUS taught you, aiming to do the will of the FATHER alone.

It doesn't hurt, when you're wrong.

It only hurts when you do the same mistake twice.

You thank GOD for EVERYTHING.

You're all eyes, and ears, with GOD.

You delight in His WORD.

You do not pray for what you want others to have.

You pray that God's will be done, through you.

We really don't know what's good for others.

Only GOD knows.

We do not interfere with God's plans.

(As if we could.)

We allow SPIRIT to help us, to teach us, to guide us, to make things clear for us -- through SCRIPTURE.

Only GOD matters.

You don't mind self disappearing in the background.

Self is no more.

Every day becomes an opportunity to learn, to do better, to get things right by the LORD.

You follow the LORD's commandments.

You live by Scripture.

The world doesn't dictate who you must be.

Only GOD tells you who and what He called you for.

The world's judgment doesn't matter.

Only the judgment of JESUS matters.

You long for eternal life with JESUS.

You aspire to be holy, for you want to meet the LORD in the air, when RAPTURE comes -- which could be ANY moment GOD decides.

You want to know EVERYTHING about GOD.

You're so very thrilled to give GLORY to GOD alone.

You judge yourself, before you get judged by JESUS.

You trust Scripture 100%.

There is no ounce of doubt in your heart about the divinity of JESUS.

You believe in JESUS alone.

You believe He was crucified, died for your sins, and was resurrected on the third day.

You believe He is the SON of GOD.

Your focus is on JESUS, and not on what the world has to offer.

You pray that the HOLY SPIRIT comes upon people, that they may understand the Bible, in all its simplicity.

You believe the Bible to be the WORD of GOD.

You cannot bear to have misunderstood the Bible.

You know that your life is in the hands of GOD.

You love sharing GOD's WORD with everyone who cares to listen.

If they don't listen, you don't take it personally.

You know GOD looks after His own.

Only He knows who are His.

2 Timothy 2:19

King James Version

19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, 

having this seal, 

The Lord knoweth them that are his

And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ 

depart from iniquity.

BE a SPIRIT-filled woman

The LORD's reassurance:

Revelation 3:10

King James Version

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, 

I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, 

which shall come upon all the world, 

to try them that dwell upon the earth.


This article is a call to all women to heed GOD's WORD.

To take to humility, and not vanity.

To allow SPIRIT to teach us the ways of God.

To open our hearts, to God's TRUTH alone.

And to seek salvation in CHRIST.


Let's face it.

From day one, from the day we were fashioned from Adam's rib, Satan had his eyes on us.

But he also knew some things were off limits.

He knew he must not tempt God's DIRECT creation, Adam.

Ah, but with us women, we were subject to his deception, causing confusion in us.

Genesis 3:1-7

King James Version

3 Now the serpent was more subtil 

than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. 

And he said unto the woman, 

Yea, hath God said, 

Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, 

We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, 

God hath said, 

Ye shall not eat of it, 

neither shall ye touch it, 

lest ye die.

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, 

Ye shall not surely die:

5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, 

then your eyes shall be opened, 

and ye shall be as gods, 

knowing good and evil.

6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, 

and that it was pleasant to the eyes, 

and a tree to be desired to make one wise, 

she took of the fruit thereof, 

and did eat, 

and gave also unto her husband with her;

 and he did eat.

7 And the eyes of them both were opened, 

and they knew that they were naked

and they sewed fig leaves together, 

and made themselves aprons.


GOD knew something had gone wrong.

Genesis 3:11

King James Version

11 And he said, 

Who told thee that thou wast naked? 

Hast thou eaten of the tree, 

whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?


To which, Adam replied:

Genesis 3:12

King James Version

12 And the man said, 

The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, 

she gave me of the tree, 

and I did eat.


The LORD demanded an explanation from woman.

Genesis 3:13

King James Version

13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, 

What is this that thou hast done

And the woman said, 

The serpent beguiled me, 

and I did eat.


After that, GOD cursed the serpent, man, and woman.

Here's what GOD told woman:

Genesis 3:16

King James Version

16 Unto the woman he said, 

I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; 

in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; 

and thy desire shall be to thy husband, 

and he shall rule over thee.


Despite our original sin, God was like a father.

Genesis 3:21

King James Version

21 Unto Adam also and to his wife 

did the Lord God make coats of skins, 

and clothed them.


Long before I became born again, I was once offended by apostle Paul's statement:

1 Corinthians 14:34-36

King James Version

34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: 

for it is not permitted unto them to speak; 

but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.

35 And if they will learn any thing, 

let them ask their husbands at home: 

for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

36 What? 

came the word of God out from you? 

or came it unto you only?


But now that I've been happily born again, I no longer take offense.

I let the WORD of GOD speak directly to me, with His HOLY SPIRIT making things plain, correcting me at every turn, with the objective:

John 16:8

King James Version

8 And when he is come, 

he will reprove the world of sin, 

and of righteousness, 

and of judgment:


Adam was the DIRECT creation.

Woman was taken from him -- to be his companion.

Thus, women are descendants of Adam.

As God designed us to be.

Genesis 2:21-24

King James Version

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, 

and he slept: 

and he took one of his ribs, 

and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, 

which the Lord God had taken from man, 

made he a woman, 

and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, 

This is now bone of my bones, 

and flesh of my flesh: 

she shall be called Woman, 

because she was taken out of Man.

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, 

and shall cleave unto his wife: 

and they shall be one flesh.


I cannot also take offense when Paul declared:

1 Timothy 2:12

King James Version

12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, 

nor to usurp authority over the man, 

but to be in silence.


The reason, being:

1 Timothy 2:13-14

King James Version

13 For Adam was first formed, 

then Eve.

14 And Adam was not deceived, 

but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.


Of course, many women would take offense at this.

As born again, I can't.

God makes things plain.

Even a child could understand it.

Only by being born again can we understand things of the Spirit.

JESUS pointed this out to us:

John 3:6-7

King James Version

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.


When I first sought God's TRUTH in April 2019, I sincerely wanted to be a better person.

To sin no more.

To be acceptable in the eyes of the LORD.

As a woman, I know we have been greatly deceived by the enemy, using our feminine wiles, to destroy man.

If Satan's angels in rebellion were once attracted to women, how much more mortal man.

Genesis 6:1-2

King James Version

6 And it came to pass, 

when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, 

and daughters were born unto them,

2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men 

that they were fair; 

and they took them wives of all which they chose.


The resulting hybrid, was definitely NOT high breed.

Genesis 6:4-5

King James Version

4 There were giants in the earth in those days; 

and also after that

when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, 

and they bare children to them

the same became mighty men which were of old, 

men of renown.

5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, 

and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart 

was only evil continually.


Thus, the flood.

Genesis 6:6-8

King James Version

6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, 

and it grieved him at his heart.

7 And the Lord said, 

I will destroy man 

whom I have created from the face of the earth; 

both man, 

and beast, 

and the creeping thing, 

and the fowls of the air; 

for it repenteth me that I have made them.

8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.


A woman after God's heart, will aspire to know GOD's TRUTH alone.

And that is all on the Bible, the WORD of GOD -- JESUS.

Everything was about JESUS in the Bible.

The preparation, the prophesies, the persecutions.

Man bears the original sin.

But our salvation is in JESUS alone.

Romans 3:23-24

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;

24 Being justified freely by his grace 

through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:


Adam and Eve fell, because of disobedience., even when GOD was clear about everything:

Genesis 2:15-17

King James Version

15 And the Lord God took the man, 

and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, 

saying, 

Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, 

thou shalt not eat of it: 

for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


Have a look at the world, and you will see what pervades.

Greed, lust, pride, vanity, abominations, perversions, murder, and disobedience.

In complete defiance of God's commandments.

And women are the subtle tool being used by the enemy, to cause man's further ruin.

We are the enemy's secret weapon.

But we are destroying ourselves, too.

Let us not be tools of the enemy.

Let us be SPIRIT-filled women, so we may bring forth SPIRIT-filled children, and support SPIRIT-filled men.

1 Peter 3:3-4

King James Version

3 Whose adorning let it not be 

that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, 

and of wearing of gold, 

or of putting on of apparel;

4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, 

in that which is not corruptible, 

even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, 

which is in the sight of God of great price.


Deuteronomy 11:18-21

King James Version

18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart 

and in your soul, 

and bind them for a sign upon your hand, 

that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.

19 And ye shall teach them your children, 

speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, 

and when thou walkest by the way, 

when thou liest down, 

and when thou risest up.

20 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, 

and upon thy gates:

21 That your days may be multiplied, 

and the days of your children, 

n the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, 

as the days of heaven upon the earth.

The TEMPLE to COME

 

The HOUR COMETH:

John 4:23

King James Version

23 But the hour cometh, 

and now is, 

when the true worshippers shall worship the Father 

in spirit and in truth: 

for the Father seeketh such to worship him.


Because we live in a physical universe, we think in terms of material form.

But the temple of God to come, won't be physical.

Here's proof.

Listen to what JESUS declared:

John 4:20-23

King James Version

20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; 

and ye say, 

that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

21 Jesus saith unto her, 

Woman, 

believe me, 

the hour cometh, 

when ye shall neither in this mountain, 

nor yet at Jerusalem, 

worship the Father.

22 Ye worship ye know not what: 

we know what we worship: 

for salvation is of the Jews.

23 But the hour cometh, 

and now is, 

when the true worshippers shall worship the Father 

in spirit and in truth: 

for the Father seeketh such to worship him.


Only because, JESUS reminds us:

John 4:24

King James Version

24 God is a Spirit

and they that worship him 

must worship him in spirit and in truth.


These are what have been prophesied in the end times regarding the NEW JERUSALEM:

Revelation 21:3

King James Version

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.


Revelation 21:22

King James Version

22 And I saw no temple therein: 

for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb 

are the temple of it.


Revelation 21:23

King James Version

23 And the city had no need of the sun, 

neither of the moon, 

to shine in it: 

for the glory of God did lighten it, 

and the Lamb is the light thereof.


Revelation 22:3

King James Version

3 And there shall be no more curse: 

but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it

and his servants shall serve him:


Revelation 22:4

King James Version

4 And they shall see his face; 

and his name shall be in their foreheads.


Revelation 22:5

King James Version

5 And there shall be no night there; 

and they need no candle, 

neither light of the sun; 

for the Lord God giveth them light: 

and they shall reign for ever and ever.
