The New Testament author James observes that life is very temporary compared to eternity: What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes (James 4:14). Not only is life temporary, but everything you stockpile in this life is also lost when you die. Several millennia ago, Job rightly observed: Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will depart (Job 1:21).
Since life is fleeting and possessions are worthless at the end of life, Jesus wisely instructs us not to amass treasures on earth: Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal (Matthew 6:19-20).
Instead of spending your life to build up things that are like the morning dew, use your life to store up for yourselves treasures in heaven —lasting treasures. How do we do that? By glorifying Christ in life and in death.
The Apostle Paul demonstrates in Philippians 3:7-8 his passion for living life to do what lasts into eternity: But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ. Paul willingly exchanged earthly profit, which doesn't last, for eternal gain (see 1 Corinthians 2:2).
Hi all,please, I ask how that You should pray specifically for protection over Auckland City New Zealand and its governers,particularly Hospitals and Christian leaders for sensitivty ,for these next few days.ThankYou So Much,a word of imminent danger is about and sooner prudent than mockers.
Or at least an amen to this request;
Holy*Father* thank*You* for *Jesus* and *His* BLOOD & testimony.
Wonderously good *You* have shown *Yourself* amidst our mixed responses to *THE LIGHT* given.
We acknowledge our unenviable state,and Glorify the Sacrifice on calvary as we request *You* remove the young and seekers and hospitals from the path of destruction as we boldly speak from that place of knowing how *You* delight in mercy;
2 Pet 2.9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
THOSE CHOSEN AND PRAYED FOR,GRACIOUS *FATHER* WITHIN THE VISIONED DISASTER AREA,IN SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITY ETC BE PROTECTED AND DELIVERED ALONG WITH HOSPITALS IN *JESUS ALMIGHTY NAME* AMEN,HALLELU*JAH*,THANKYOU *FATHER*.
Auckland is a city similar in size to Haiti and considering the gospel light we have had
for 2 centuries,judgement would be more than reasonable.Many Young people have come to the *Lord* in recent years but many standards give reason for great concern.
THANKYOU ALL AND AN ANNOINTING UPON THEM WHO SUBMIT TO THIS REQUEST TOO *FATHER* I ALSO ASK,THANKS AGAIN AMEN.
Praise *GOD* Cesar H,
I was taught in the *Spirit* that the (sincere)Amen contains more humility and power than the petitioner.
And as I believed and received that revelation further light came.
1/ Deut 32. 30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?
2/The earnest seconder involves denying self with a short AMEN,a Godly attribute indeed.Matt 6.7 for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
3/The *Amen* is a name given to Our *LORD* Rev 3.14 These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
4/FINALLY Matt 18.19 We all know,;Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
OH OUR *FATHER* LET THE *AMEN* OF *YOUR* PEOPLE SOUND OUT AGAIN.
Amen Edwin to your prayers for those in Auckland City, my birth city where some of my family live (unsaved!)
Yes Lord I ask you to protect the innocent that they may escape the coming wrath.
Holy Spirit I ask you to convict those who have not surrendered to Jesus that they may REPENT and turn from their wicked ways and receive their saviour Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
I ask you Lord.to draw to Jesus for repentance of sin this very hour all of those whom you have chosen especially those in Auckland City that you have shown to be doomed to destruction.
This is a continuance of the destruction Jesus warned us about and also warned us to be prepared - read His words and put them into practice. He is coming soon, we had better get to know Him!
Come King Jesus come and reign.
I thought its about time to say a big thanks to they that interceded as many had had a Word Of Judgement imminent and we concluded earth quake by some signs but instead a harsh drought.
The dryest in our recorded history, now over thank *GOD* but cost us dearly.
Something that hurts the older and his new car demands and LESS DRAMATIC on the younger.
PRAISE THE MERCIFUL *LORD* AND *FATHER* BUT NO SIGNS OF REPENTANCE SO WE WAIT AGAIN.
THANKS ALL WHO REMEMBERED US and THATS FAR MORE THAN A CUP OF COLD WATER THESE DAYS WITH FRIDGES IN MOST HOMES.
THE KINGDOM OF *GOD* AND *HIS* RIGHTEOUSNESS! WE MUST SEEK THE MORE IN THESE ABUNDANCE OF BREAD AND IDLENESS TYPE DAYS.
Thanks again everyone
And please I warn that a tide of shallow spirituality is accompanying this relatively new teaching re talking to the *Holy Ghost* our adorable comforter who abides within and speaks wise counsel from *JESUS The WORD* and *JESUS* states catagorically he wants us to Pray to *His* *FATHER* which is in Heaven and also Jn 16.26,where *CHRISTS* incredible ransom has lifted us and seated us in heavenly places by faith in *Himself*.Eph 2.6.
Derek Prince suggests in His book PROTECTION FROM DECEPTION that this unscriptual practice is a door for evil.
AND I SUGGEST A SUPER SPIRITUALITY WHICH SATAN LOVES AS PRIDE ENTERS SO EASILLY WITH COMPARING OURSELVESS WITH OURSELVES
SO UNWISE. And sensibly who DIRECTS You decide whom to turn too ?
OTHERS or THE WORD.And not one in scripture patterned that behaviour, rather the contrary.
If the enemy can`t get us down and out he will try for up and out into a super cult.
The *LORD JESUS* is Our Bridegroom after all,lets keep it simple saints.
Be filled with The *HolyGhost* praying in The *Spirit* not to the *Spirit.*
*He* lives in these temples of Ours as we honour The Word of *GOD*.*HE* Talks to us sure but in perfection *He* turns our eyes on *JESUS* Our *LORD*.
Do your own search please as this is so subtle a ruse and appears as maturity when it is immaturity. - - - - -if possible even the elect shall be deceived;a little leaven,leavens the whole lump.Lets be faithful to the testimony of the scriptures and avoid any fruitless confusion.
I honestly can say that I adore the *HolyGhost*,the epitome of humility is *HE*.ALLELU*JAH*.
Kept me faithfull these 35 years through what others say has been enough for several lives so far.
*HE* truly has shown Our *LORD JESUS* to be more and more WONDERFULL EVERY YEAR
Thank*YOU* Our *FATHER*.
