What a christian should do ? – Take the Word of God Sword

ATTENTION

Is it enough for us to live like this? What will be the end of this journey? Whether we study Word of God or not, our judgement will be based on each and every Word of God written. Your excuses like I didn’t know, I didn’t read, none told me about Word of God have  no value before God.

If any of you sin without knowing it, doing any of the things that by theLord’s commandments ought not to be done, you have incurred guilt, and are subject to punishment. (Leviticus 5:17)

Think ! Do we try to learn and spread the Word of God with the Church? Do we spend money and energy for this? Is not God gave the wealth and health for this also? Could we not save more souls, if we tried and utilised the chances and time God gave according to our life status?

Let us awake…. Join with the church  to learn and spread the Word of God, Word of God Live.

if you seek it like silver,
    and search for it as for hidden treasures— (Proverbs 2:4)

What should we do?

 1. Read Bible daily. Remember Word of God day and night. Live in Word of God.

This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth; you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to act in accordance with all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall be successful. (Joshua 1:8)

  1. Teach children Word of God with full concentration. Make a habit of speaking Word of God always.

Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. (Deuteronomy 6:7)

  1. Carry the Holy Bible with pride wherever you go for spiritual related work.

Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, (Deuteronomy 6:8)

  1. Buy and give one Holy Bible to each and everyone in the family. Make awareness among children that work without Word of God is vain.

Unless the Lord builds the house,
    those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord guards the city,
    the guard keeps watch in vain. (Psalms 127:1)

  1.  Use quotations from Bible Whenever get a chance to speak.

This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth; (Joshua 1:8)

  1. Spend money and work hard for distributing Bible and also arranging proclamation of Word of God.

Do not be ashamed, then, of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel, relying on the power of God, (2 Timothy 1:8)

  1. Ensure and decide that will only listen, read and distribute booklets, books which are approved and attached with the  church.

10 Do not receive into the house or welcome anyone who comes to you and does not bring this teaching; 11 for to welcome is to participate in the evil deeds of such a person. (2 John 10-11)

Think about above and try to follow. Spread the Word of God.

One significant matter in which the heaven rejoices

LET US SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS… THAT JESUS IS THE LORD,
THE KING OF KINGS….!
AND YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WILL GAIN PROSPERITY…!

Do not feel despise or feel burden on Word of God – Take the Word of God Sword

Holy BibleTherefore the word of the Lord will be to them,  “Precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little;”in order that they may go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. (Isaiah 28:13)

We should have over enthusiasm to listen, obey and spread the Word of God.

11 for those who despise wisdom and instruction are miserable.
Their hope is vain, their labors are unprofitable,
and their works are useless.
12 Their wives are foolish, and their children evil;
13 their offspring are accursed. (Wisdom 3:11-13)

Sometimes we feel that we are hard working, but the result is zero or not up to the level as it should be. Sometimes we wish and hope good things, but the result is just the opposite. We send our children in good schools but their result is poor, their friendship is with wrong people. Wives are beautiful and look like very clever, but doing foolish things. When we feel our hope is vain, our labor is not profitable, our works are useless, our children are not listening to parents and elders and they are leading a life as per their wish with wrong friends, then that is the time for us to look back and think whether we have ever despised wisdom and instructions of Word of God. If yes, we must repent and ask pardon to Lord for this.

Never insult Word of God or discourse. Do not even touch the Holy Bible with impurity. If ever thrown out or put the Bible in fire, repent about that sin.

God ignore people do not have Word of God – Take the Word of God Sword

Holy Bible

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge;
because you have rejected knowledge,
I reject you from being a priest to me.
And since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children. (Hosea 4:6)

Saul, the first king of Israel ignored the Word of God. Then God rejected him from the kingdom.

For rebellion is no less a sin than divination,
    and stubbornness is like iniquity and idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
    he has also rejected you from being king.” (1 Samuel 15:23)

God rejected Saul ruined. Failed in the war. Saul tried to die leaning on his spear. His stomach cut opened, intestines came out, blood flowed. How can forget the last moments of Saul floundering to die. The sad picture of his end is in the last words to an Amalekite who passed through that way.

He said to me, ‘Come, stand over me and kill me; for convulsions have seized me, and yet my life still lingers.’ (2 Samuel 1:9)

Ignoring Word of God reached Saul at this stage.

But Lot’s wife, behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. (Genesis 19:26)

God rejected the wife of Lot who ignored the Word of God. Lot accepted and obeyed the Word of God. That lead him to life. People who reject the Word of God will become dead life.
