Light Of The World

|Jesus is the true light.
John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Jesus is God.
The Church of Jesus is not organized Christianity, though there are people who belong to Christ everywhere, in all walks of life and in all religions.
Satan is the god of this world. Without Jesus, one cannot stand.
Without Christ, you will lose.
Without Christ, you will not have discernment.
If you have received the Holy Spirit, then you have accepted Jesus--now you need to realize it.
There is nothing your Father won't give you or do for those who are His Own.
Who are you?
Do you belong to Jesus Christ?
Do you belong to the World?
Are you a man/woman of the World?
Are you a success in this World, happy with your progress and accomplishments, not anxious about death or your plight, or the plight of your children?
Perhaps you are like Esau, whom God hated.
Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Romans 9:14 What shall we say then? [Is there] unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
Romans 9:15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
God makes some for righteousness, some for wickedness. He makes all people, amen?
Behold the mystery--behold the hatred of those who seek the Lord and follow His Ways.
But the World cannot hurt the children of God.
All are welcome in the Kingdom of God--all they have to do is turn to Him.
Perhaps they will understand after the next wave of violence...perhaps not.
There are some who like the world and their place in it.
There are others who are unhappy; others who are filled with sorrow...and they want God. They need Him in their lives.
God makes both kinds of people.
Which one are you?
