SON of GOD

King James Version

20 But while he thought on these things, 

behold, 

the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, 

saying, 

Joseph, thou son of David, 

fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: 

for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21 And she shall bring forth a son, 

and thou shalt call his name Jesus: 

for he shall save his people from their sins.


In these end times, what are we to believe?

Who shall we believe?

Out of Egypt have I called my son.

when he was baptized, 

went up straightway out of the water:

and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, 

and lighting upon him:

17 And lo a voice from heaven, 

saying, 

This is my beloved Son, 

in whom I am well pleased.

I am: 

and ye shall see the Son of man 

sitting on the right hand of power, 

and coming in the clouds of heaven.

if ye had known me, 

ye should have known my Father also.

20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, 

as he taught in the temple: 

and no man laid hands on him; 

for his hour was not yet come.

If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: 

it is my Father that honoureth me; 

of whom ye say, 

that he is your God:

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, 

that will I do, 

that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

in that he hath raised up Jesus again;

this day have I begotten thee.

We live by His WORD.

We await His return.

TRUE children of GOD

 


2 Corinthians 6:18

King James Version

18 And will be a Father unto you, 

and ye shall be my sons and daughters, 

saith the Lord Almighty.


Who can be called TRUE children of GOD?

What does the Bible say?

Here's where SPIRIT led me.


Through JESUS:

Matthew 5:9

King James Version

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: 

for they shall be called the children of God.


Matthew 18:3

King James Version

3 And said, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Except ye be converted, 

and become as little children, 

ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.


Mark 10:13-16

King James Version

13 And they brought young children to him, 

that he should touch them: 

and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.

14 But when Jesus saw it, 

he was much displeased, 

and said unto them, 

Suffer the little children to come unto me, 

and forbid them not: 

for of such is the kingdom of God.

15 Verily I say unto you, 

Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God 

as a little child, 

he shall not enter therein.

16 And he took them up in his arms, 

put his hands upon them, 

and blessed them.


John 1:12-13

King James Version

12 But as many as received him, 

to them gave he power to become the sons of God, 

even to them that believe on his name:

13 Which were born, 

not of blood, 

nor of the will of the flesh, 

nor of the will of man, 

but of God.


John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


Through other chapters of the Bible:

Genesis 6:8-9

King James Version

8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

9 These are the generations of Noah: 

Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, 

and Noah walked with God.


Genesis 7:1

King James Version

7 And the Lord said unto Noah, 

Come thou and all thy house into the ark; 

for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.


2 Chronicles 34:1-3

King James Version

34 Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, 

and he reigned in Jerusalem one and thirty years.

2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, 

and walked in the ways of David his father, 

and declined neither to the right hand, nor to the left.

3 For in the eighth year of his reign, 

while he was yet young, 

he began to seek after the God of David his father: 

and in the twelfth year he began 

to purge Judah and Jerusalem from the high places, 

and the groves, and the carved images, 

and the molten images.


Job 1:1

King James Version

1 There was a man in the land of Uz, 

whose name was Job; 

and that man was perfect and upright, 

and one that feared God, 

and eschewed evil.


Psalm 127:3

and the fruit of the womb is his reward.


Proverbs 3:11-12

King James Version

11 My son, 

despise not the chastening of the Lord; 

neither be weary of his correction:

12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; 

even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.


Jeremiah 1:4-5

King James Version

4 Then the word of the Lord came unto me, 

saying,

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; 

and before thou camest forth out of the womb 

I sanctified thee, 

and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.


Jeremiah 29:11-12

King James Version

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, 

saith the Lord, 

thoughts of peace, and not of evil, 

to give you an expected end.

12 Then shall ye call upon me, 

and ye shall go and pray unto me, 

and I will hearken unto you.


Acts 2:38

King James Version

38 Then Peter said unto them, 

Repent, 

and be baptized every one of you 

in the name of Jesus Christ 

for the remission of sins, 

and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.


Romans 8:14-19

King James Version

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, 

they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received 

the spirit of bondage again to fear; 

but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, 

whereby we cry, 

Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, 

that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; 

heirs of God, 

and joint-heirs with Christ; 

if so be that we suffer with him, 

that we may be also glorified together.

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time 

are not worthy to be compared with the glory 

which shall be revealed in us.

19 For the earnest expectation of the creature 

waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.


Romans 8:28-30

King James Version

28 And we know that all things 

work together for good to them that love God, 

to them who are the called according to his purpose.

29 For whom he did foreknow, 

he also did predestinate 

to be conformed to the image of his Son, 

that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, 

them he also called: 

and whom he called, them he also justified: 

and whom he justified, them he also glorified.


Romans 8:31-32

King James Version

31 What shall we then say to these things? 

If God be for us, 

who can be against us?

32 He that spared not his own Son, 

but delivered him up for us all, 

how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?


John 11:49-53

King James Version

49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, 

being the high priest that same year, 

said unto them, 

Ye know nothing at all,

50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, 

that one man should die for the people, 

and that the whole nation perish not.

51 And this spake he not of himself: 

but being high priest that year, 

he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

52 And not for that nation only, 

but that also he should gather together in one 

the children of God that were scattered abroad.

53 Then from that day forth 

they took counsel together for to put him to death.


1 Corinthians 6:17-20

King James Version

17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

18 Flee fornication. 

Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; 

but he that committeth fornication 

sinneth against his own body.

19 What? 

know ye not that your body 

is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, 

which ye have of God, 

and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: 

therefore glorify God in your body, 

and in your spirit, 

which are God's.


2 Corinthians 5:17

King James Version

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, 

he is a new creature:

old things are passed away; 

behold, 

all things are become new.


2 Corinthians 6:13-18

King James Version

13 Now for a recompence in the same, 

(I speak as unto my children,) 

be ye also enlarged.

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: 

for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? 

and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? 

or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? 

for ye are the temple of the living God; 

as God hath said, I will dwell in them, 

and walk in them; 

and I will be their God, 

and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, 

and be ye separate, 

saith the Lord, 

and touch not the unclean thing; 

and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, 

and ye shall be my sons and daughters, 

saith the Lord Almighty.


Galatians 3:26

King James Version

26 For ye are all the children of God 

by faith in Christ Jesus.


Galatians 4:4-7

King James Version

4 But when the fulness of the time was come, 

God sent forth his Son, 

made of a woman, 

made under the law,

5 To redeem them that were under the law, 

that we might receive the adoption of sons.

6 And because ye are sons, 

God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, 

crying, 

Abba, Father.

7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, 

but a son; 

and if a son, 

then an heir of God through Christ.


Philippians 2:13-16

King James Version

13 For it is God which worketh in you both 

to will and to do of his good pleasure.

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, 

the sons of God, 

without rebuke, 

in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, 

among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

16 Holding forth the word of life; 

that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, 

that I have not run in vain, 

neither laboured in vain.


2 Timothy 3:14-15

King James Version

14 But continue thou in the things 

which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, 

knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

15 And that from a child 

thou hast known the holy scriptures, 

which are able to make thee wise unto salvation 

through faith which is in Christ Jesus.


Hebrews 12:6-11

King James Version

6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, 

and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

7 If ye endure chastening, 

God dealeth with you as with sons; 

for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

8 But if ye be without chastisement, 

whereof all are partakers, 

then are ye bastards, 

and not sons.

9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh 

which corrected us, 

and we gave them reverence: 

shall we not much rather be in subjection 

unto the Father of spirits, 

and live?

10 For they verily for a few days chastened us 

after their own pleasure; 

but he for our profit, 

that we might be partakers of his holiness.

11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, 

but grievous: 

nevertheless afterward it yieldeth 

the peaceable fruit of righteousness 

unto them which are exercised thereby.


1 John 3:1-3

King James Version

3 Behold, 

what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, 

that we should be called the sons of God: 

therefore the world knoweth us not, 

because it knew him not.

2 Beloved, 

now are we the sons of God, 

and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: 

but we know that, when he shall appear, 

we shall be like him; 

for we shall see him as he is.

3 And every man that hath this hope in him 

purifieth himself, 

even as he is pure.


1 John 3:7-10

King James Version

7 Little children, 

let no man deceive you: 

he that doeth righteousness is righteous, 

even as he is righteous.

8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; 

for the devil sinneth from the beginning. 

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, 

that he might destroy the works of the devil.

9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; 

for his seed remaineth in him: 

and he cannot sin, 

because he is born of God.

10 In this the children of God are manifest, 

and the children of the devil: 

whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, 

neither he that loveth not his brother.


1 John 5

King James Version

5 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: 

and every one that loveth him that begat 

loveth him also that is begotten of him.

2 By this we know that we love the children of God, 

when we love God, 

and keep his commandments.

3 For this is the love of God, 

that we keep his commandments: 

and his commandments are not grievous.

4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: 

and this is the victory that overcometh the world, 

even our faith.

5 Who is he that overcometh the world, 

but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

6 This is he that came by water and blood, 

even Jesus Christ; 

not by water only, but by water and blood. 

And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, 

because the Spirit is truth.

7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, 

the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: 

and these three are one.

8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, 

the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: 

and these three agree in one.

9 If we receive the witness of men, 

the witness of God is greater: 

for this is the witness of God 

which he hath testified of his Son.

10 He that believeth on the Son of God 

hath the witness in himself: 

he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; 

because he believeth not the record 

that God gave of his Son.

11 And this is the record, 

that God hath given to us eternal life, 

and this life is in his Son.

12 He that hath the Son hath life; 

and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

13 These things have I written unto you 

that believe on the name of the Son of God; 

that ye may know that ye have eternal life, 

and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, 

that, if we ask any thing according to his will, 

he heareth us:

15 And if we know that he hear us, 

whatsoever we ask, 

we know that we have the petitions 

that we desired of him.

16 If any man see his brother sin a sin 

which is not unto death, 

he shall ask, and he shall give him life 

for them that sin not unto death. 

There is a sin unto death: 

I do not say that he shall pray for it.

17 All unrighteousness is sin: 

and there is a sin not unto death.

18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; 

but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, 

and that wicked one toucheth him not.

19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

20 And we know that the Son of God is come, 

and hath given us an understanding, 

that we may know him that is true, 

and we are in him that is true, 

even in his Son Jesus Christ. 

This is the true God, 

and eternal life.

21 Little children, 

keep yourselves from idols. 

Amen.

Making WISE choices

 


Joel 3:14

King James Version

14 Multitudes, 

multitudes in the valley of decision: 

for the day of the Lord is near 

in the valley of decision.


How to make wise choices?

As born again, SPIRIT and SCRIPTURE have simplified making choices for me.


GOD or strange gods.

Joshua 24:20

King James Version

20 If ye forsake the Lord, 

and serve strange gods, 

then he will turn and do you hurt, 

and consume you, 

after that he hath done you good.


GOD or man.

King James Version

23 And whatsoever ye do, 

do it heartily, 

as to the Lord, 

and not unto men;


GOD or mammon.

Matthew 6:24

King James Version

24 No man can serve two masters: 

for either he will hate the one, 

and love the other; 

or else he will hold to the one, 

and despise the other. 

Ye cannot serve God and mammon.


JESUS or the devil.

1 John 3:8

King James Version

8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; 

for the devil sinneth from the beginning. 

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, 

that he might destroy the works of the devil.


SPIRIT or flesh.

Galatians 5:16

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.


Death or ETERNAL LIFE.

Romans 6:23

but the gift of God is eternal life 

through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Hot or cold.

Revelation 3:15-16

King James Version

15 I know thy works, 

that thou art neither cold nor hot: 

I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, 

and neither cold nor hot, 

I will spue thee out of my mouth.


STRAIT gate or wide gate.

Matthew 7:13-14

King James Version

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: 

for wide is the gate, 

and broad is the way, 

that leadeth to destruction, 

and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, 

and narrow is the way,

 which leadeth unto life, 

and few there be that find it.


LIFE and GOOD or death and evil.

Deuteronomy 30:15-19

King James Version

15 See, 

I have set before thee this day life and good, 

and death and evil;

16 In that I command thee this day 

to love the Lord thy God, 

to walk in his ways, 

and to keep his commandments 

and his statutes and his judgments, 

that thou mayest live and multiply: 

and the Lord thy God shall bless thee 

in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

17 But if thine heart turn away, 

so that thou wilt not hear, 

but shalt be drawn away, 

and worship other gods, 

and serve them;

18 I denounce unto you this day, 

that ye shall surely perish, 

and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, 

whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, 

that I have set before you life and death, 

blessing and cursing: 

therefore choose life, 

that both thou and thy seed may live:


GRACE, through FAITH, or works.

Ephesians 2:8-9

King James Version

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; 

and that not of yourselves: 

it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, 

lest any man should boast.

that ye may be able to bear it.

all things are become new.

God is not mocked: 

for whatsoever a man soweth,

shall of the flesh reap corruption; 

but he that soweth to the Spirit 

shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.


Hebrews 11:24-25

King James Version

24 By faith Moses, 

when he was come to years, 

refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;

than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;


In conclusion:

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

King James Version

13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: 

Fear God, and keep his commandments: 

for this is the whole duty of man.

14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, 

with every secret thing, 

whether it be good, 

or whether it be evil.


Philippians 4:8

King James Version

8 Finally, brethren, 

whatsoever things are true, 

whatsoever things are honest, 

whatsoever things are just, 

whatsoever things are pure, 

whatsoever things are lovely, 

whatsoever things are of good report; 

if there be any virtue, 

and if there be any praise, 

think on these things.
