Don’t put your trust in the stuff you have, instead put your trust in the fact that God has you.

TP’s are in line with the open doors, the windows of opportunity that we all have to face…or get to face for it is not an outright negative or a positive…but rather at the onset…simply an opportunity.

become heroic not because of their perfection and strengths, but because God uses them despite their flaws and weakness.

“Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom!”

LUK 23:43-46 And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

are to rest upon our position in Christ…rather than do works to improve our condition in the flesh.

ROM 1:17, For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.”

prevents one from doing something, a reluctance to say or do something because of the fear of humiliation, or ridicule.

“My king, there is a greater King than you, it is a King to whom I have sworn allegiance even unto death.”

JOH 6:53, So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves.”

“I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; (the Jews knew the reference) if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.” Then the Jews began to argue with one another, saying, “How can this man give us His flesh to eat?”

LUK 14:25-27, Now large crowds were going along with Him; and He turned and said to them, “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.Â
Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.”

Now when evening came David arose from his bed and walked around on the roof of the king’s house, and from the roof he saw a woman bathing; and the woman was very beautiful in appearance.

ROM 4:1-3, What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh, has found?
For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say?
“Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”

Many spend a life time, buying passage to the “Tarhishes” of the world, but as Jonah found out, it is a futile effort.

JON 1:14-16, Then they called on the Lord and said, “We earnestly pray, O Lord, do not let us perish on account of this man’s life and do not put innocent blood on us; for You, O Lord, have done as You have pleased.”

So they picked up Jonah, threw him into the sea, and the sea stopped its raging. Then the men feared (respected) the Lord greatly, and they offered a sacrifice to the Lord and made vows.”

HEB 12:11, All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.

Mat 12:40-42, “for just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation at the judgment, and will condemn it because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.”

The Church belongs to Christ; He died for it. We have nothing to say as to who is saved and becomes a part of it.

ROM 5:8, states is clearly, But God has this much love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

don’t you ever doubt His endless compassion and His matchless grace that He has toward you toward…us all.

JON 4:9-11 Then God said to Jonah, “Do you have good reason to be angry about the plant?” And he said, “I have good reason to be angry, even to death.” 

Then the Lord said, “You had compassion on the plant for which you did not work and which you did not cause to grow, which came up overnight and perished overnight.

Should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know the difference between their right and left hand, as well as many animals?”

Some count 14 for Elijah 28 for Elisha
Some count 8 for Elijah and 16 for Elisha.
Either way a doubling of miracles.

“Therefore, the leprosy of Naaman shall cling to you and to your descendants forever.” So he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.
