You’ll be judged by your own words

Luke 19:22 (NKJV Strong’s,)

And he said to him, ‘Out of your own mouth I will judge you, you wicked servant. You knew that I was an austere man, collecting what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow.

Matthew 12:37 (NKJV Strong’s,)

For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

We must be careful what we say. You’re going to hear what came out of your mouth. This is what you will be judged by.

The poor will always be around

Deuteronomy 15:4-11 (NKJV,)

…except when there may be no poor among you; for the Lord will greatly bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance— only if you carefully obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe with care all these commandments which I command you today. For the Lord your God will bless you just as He promised you; you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow; you shall reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over you. Generosity to the Poor

“If there is among you a poor man of your brethren, within any of the gates in your land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother, but you shall open your hand wide to him and willingly lend him sufficient for his need, whatever he needs. Beware lest there be a wicked thought in your heart, saying, ‘The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand,’ and your eye be evil against your poor brother and you give him nothing, and he cry out to the Lord against you, and it become sin among you. You shall surely give to him, and your heart should not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the Lord your God will bless you in all your works and in all to which you put your hand. For the poor will never cease from the land; therefore I command you, saying, ‘You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land.’

Jesus quotes this Old Testament passage when people complain about the woman how have Him an expensive gift.

Never Question Another Man’s Faith- By Jerry Savelle

Jesus said the distinguishing characteristic of a Christian would be their love one for another! However, I’ve noticed over the years, that this may be the most frequently disobeyed instruction in the Bible: Matthew 7:1 (KJV) “Judge not that ye be not judged…” The Amplified Bible says “Do not judge and criticize and condemn others…” It seems that this criticism comes more and more against those who are called “faith people.” Read on

What Did The Lord Jesus Come Here To Do?

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.
Titus 2:11-14 (NKJV)

We are to be a pure and holy generation. We live in a sick and dying world. What is perverse is described as normal and good. What is good is labeled as discriminatory or unaccepting.

Many people will be shocked on judgement day. They accepted what the world told them was good, and rejected Gods call to holiness and purity.   Those who reject God’s ways will be rejected by the Father. Jesus is coming back soon only for those who honored Him.

What Type Of People Should Be In Church Leadership?

…if a man is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of dissipation or insubordination. For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-minded, just, holy, self-controlled, holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.
Titus 1:6-9 (NKJV)

Good families are a sign of great parents. Let’s be outstanding fathers and mothers.

Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
