Galatians 2:20-21 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness comes by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
Jesus is the Authority. Obey them that have the rule over you.(In the Church) Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you. What would the Devil do with this scripture? He'd cut out the 'watch' part then, if he could he would be in a 'position' of Authority over you. HE cannot be in a position of Authority over you; Authority is spiritually given. And I assert that it is maintained through payer and strengthened by scripture. Only men (That includes both genders) by choice, can give over their Authority to the Devil. Then they are in danger of the Authority (God) The Devil knows he needs your cooperation and will seek to bluff you down. There is no compassion involved with the activities of the Devil so DO NOT expect it. Before getting emotionally entangled, look immediately to Jesus. Compassion even for persons taken completely by the devil is found in Jesus. Jesus is all compassion. A Compassion that is true, not wishful. Compassion that is extended, not forced. Jesus gives no place to the Devil. He extends a hand to men that they may be saved. He knocks at the Door. Look and see who it is. It's Jesus!! Hallelu Jah. Thank God. Lord come in if you will? ( He will, that's why he came!!.:)) Hallelu Jah!! Amen.
Revelation 3:18-21 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Psalm 130:4 "But there is forgiveness with thee that thou mayest be feared." Glory be to God. Hallelu Jah . Amen.
