1 Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.
3 At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us,not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
#2016 is the year of PROSPERITY for those who OBEY GOD
…….but, also the year of ANXIETY for those who DISOBEY GOD.
And, this is biblical.
#Deuteronomy 28…. about Blessings or Curses…..Obedience versus Disobedience…so let’s end this year 2015 right with God.
Also, about one of our Armour, which is PEACE in #Ephesians 6:10-20…
… A soldier can’t be ready for the battle without his SHOES which symbolize PEACE and READINESS or else he’ll end up dead or wounded in the battlefield coz he’s not prepared.
We have ANXIETY if we don’t have PEACE.
We don’t have PEACE if our mind, our emotions are not in ONENESS with GOD’s mind and emotions.
The Greek and Hebrew root word for PEACE is ONENESS, from which we get the English word HARMONY. When you are in HARMONY with GOD, there is PEACE. When you haven’t HARMONY with GOD, you have ANXIETY, FEAR, UNREST, INSECURITY, UNCERTAINTY.
And, you can not find God’s will when you are ANXIOUS, when you’re FEARFUL. There’s no way you can discern in the spirit. You can’t hear God, and if you do hear you want to know whether it’s you, God, the devil or what, because of the anxiety, the fear, and everything else. You’ve got to bring right down to REST, (this is according to Rev. Neville Johnson)
REMEMBER, YOUR LIFE MAY BE THE ONLY BIBLE SOME PEOPLE READ!
