1. God’s plan for creating us

God created us because He wanted children to love, children who would love Him above all things. But to be able to love our God, He had to create us with a free will, a physical mind with the ability to choose; whether we will love God or something else more. 

*Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ Mk 12:29-30 ESV+

*Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world--the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does--comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1Jn 2:15-17 NIV+

 

We all have a choice to make. We can surrender our human will and accept the will of our God; and He will give us the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives us the supernatural love of our Heavenly Father, which allows us to love our God above all things; spiritually binds us together with Him. If we ask our Heavenly Father, He will continually fill our hearts with the Holy Spirit to; so the Spirit can guide us to follow our Father all of our lives. Each one of us, both children of God and unbelievers has the ability to make this choice; until our physical mind can no longer function (see 10. below).

*Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Ro 5:5 NKJV+

*And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 1Jn 4:16

*If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!" Lk 11:13 NKJV+

 

Or, we can follow our sinful mind which can never please God, and live in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of our body and mind; and become children of wrath.

*the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God. Ro 8:7-8 NIV+

*among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. Eph 2:3 ESV+

 

2. God gives us the indwelling Spirit as down payment of our eternal inheritance

When we give up our human will and accept the will of our Heavenly Father; He gives us the indwelling of the Holy Spirit as an earnest (like earnest money is a deposit: KJV, ASV), a deposit (NIV+) or down payment of our inheritance (NASB+ footnotes; ESV+ footnotes), until we are completely God’s children, His possession. We know this is just a down payment not a guarantee, because the Jews who had received the indwelling of the Spirit; yet had the Spirit taken out of their hearts and were not saved in 4 below.

*In Him , you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge [Or a down payment] of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God's own possession, to the praise of His glory. Eph 1:14 NASB+

*Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God, who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge [Or a down payment]. 2Cor 1:21-22 NASB+

*Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge [Or a down payment]. 2Co 5:5 NASB+

 

3. Our Father foreknew who would be his children; never taken from His hand

When Jesus told us no one could take God’s children out of His hand, His Father’s hand; He was referring to those who were foreknown by His Father before the world was created. Those our Father knew would give up our will and allow the Spirit to guide us the rest of our lives. And these He predestined, called, justified, and glorified to be His children forever; according to the good pleasure of His will.

*My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand. Jn 10:27-29 NKJV+

*For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. Ro 8:29-30 ESV+

*just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, Eph 1:4-5 NKJV+

 

Foreknowledge, predestined does not mean that we do not have to run the race against satan, the world, our flesh; to obtain our prize of being Children of God. Paul tells we have to run the race to become, remain children of God until we physically die or Jesus returns; as our Father refines, makes us more in the image of Jesus. We have to control our mind and body which will war against out spiritual being where the Holy Spirit dwells; so we are not disqualified, the Spirit is not driven out of our spiritual being.

*Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, Heb 12:1 NKJV+

*Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. 1Co 9:24-27 NIV+

 

Children of God know our Father will not tempt us for more than we can handle; nor can we ever be separated from the love of Jesus.

*No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1Co 10:13 NKJV+

*For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ro 8:38-39 ESV+

 

Yet our physical mind and body will always be sinful; only our spiritual being (soul and spirit) can become righteous, holy. Only when we have the indwelling of the Spirit and we allow Him to rule over our physical mind can we become children of God. Only those who are led by the Spirit are children of God, and if our mind ever reaches the point of loving something else more than our God; it can push the Spirit out of our hearts. We must be willing to share in Christ’s sufferings to share in His glory.

*I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. Gal 5:16-17 NKJV+

*The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory Ro 8:16-17 NIV+

 

Easiest way to describe a child of God: one who has the indwelling of the Holy Spirit; and allows our mind to be led by Him.

*You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. Ro 8:9 ESV+

*For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of GodFor you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”  Ro 8:26 ESV+

 

Some sins can push the Spirit out of our hearts; some are unforgiveable.

 

4. Blaspheme the Holy Spirit; an unforgiveable sin

 

It will always be first for the Jew, then the Gentle. This includes the Jewish being the first to receive the indwelling of the Holy Spirit; the first to push the Spirit out of their hearts, and no longer remain children of God. 

*I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. Ro 1:16 NIV+

*There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; Ro 2:9 NIV+

 

Some of the Jewish people had accepted Christ as their Savior; yet pushed the Holy Spirit out of their hearts, turned away from Christ’s grace, because as Christians they were being persecuted. In turning back to their Jewish ways, they insulted the Holy Spirit; by denying that the Spirit had sanctified them, made them holy children of God; by the blood Jesus shed on the cross. They committed the unforgiveable sin of blaspheming the Holy Spirit, which will never be forgiven; and were lost forever. 

*For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame. Heb 6:4-6 NASB+

*Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace? Heb 10:28-29 NASB+

*For we know him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.”  It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Heb 10:30-31 ESV+

 

The past tense of the words has, was, once been; shows those who have fallen away had been sanctified; were partakers of Holy Spirit so they had received the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. They had been children of God, and one with Christ. When they pushed the Holy Spirit out of their hearts, they did it in such a manner that they insulted the Holy Spirit, blasphemed Him which is an unforgiveable sin, which will never be forgiven, and they are now in Hades. 

 

Jesus received His power from the Holy Spirit when He was anointed by the Spirit to begin His ministry. When scribes said Jesus was casting out demons by the power of the devil (Beelzebub) they were calling the Spirit the devil; for the Spirit had given Jesus the power to cast out the demons. These scribes had blasphemed the Spirit and will spend eternity in Hades.

*And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, "He has Beelzebub," and, "By the ruler of the demons He casts out demons." Mk 3:22 NKJV+

 

Jesus told us any who blasphemes the Holy Spirit has committed an unforgiveable eternal sin; even if they were given the indwelling of the Spirit. They will never be children of God, will never inherit the Kingdom of God, and face eternal judgment in Hell. That is why Paul tells every believer who God has sealed with a deposit to be His children; not to grieve the Holy Spirit, and have their inheritance taken away.

*“Truly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the children of man, and whatever blasphemies they utter, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”—  Mk 3:28-29 ESV+

*And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Eph 4:30 ESV+

 

5. God’s children who willfully keep on sinning; will not have their sins forgiven

 

The writer of Hebrews was writing to the righteous Jewish Christians, saints who had been given the indwelling of the Spirit. The writer warned these believers, all other believers who will have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit; if any righteous one shrinks back, God has no pleasure in them; they will no longer be children of God.  

*but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” Heb 10:38 ESV+

*You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, Gal 3:26 NIV+

 

This shrinking back was caused by a problem which the writer included himself in for the word we is used (whether Paul, Apollos, or Barnabas wrote Hebrews; all were righteous believers). This includes along with the righteous Jewish believers of this day, us as righteous believers today. If we go on willfully sinning after receiving the truth from the Holy Spirit which allows Him to live in our hearts; there no longer remains a sacrifice for our sins. There is only a terrifying expectation of judgment; and a fire which will consume us.

*For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sinsbut a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries. Heb 10:26-28 NASB+

* However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. Jn 16:13 NKJV+

 

Our physical being, our body and mind inherited Adam’s original sin; it will always be sinful and must die. Yet our spiritual being our soul and spirit can become righteous through Christ’s grace on the cross; if we surrender the will in our physical minds, and accept the will of our Father; who then gives us the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit then introduces us to Jesus, gives us the faith, the ability to love our God above all things; and we become children of God, heirs of Heaven.

*I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 1Co 15:50 ESV+

*If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. Ro 8:10 NASB+

*Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit. 1Co 12:3 NKJV+

 

Yet while we are physically alive, the original sin we inherited in our body and mind from Adam, will always be embedded in our flesh. And this sin will always be able to control our physical mind and body, will always cause us to commit sins; even when within our physical mind we are trying not to commit them. 

*For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me. Ro 7:18-20 ESV+

 

We will always face the battle of who controls our minds so we can discern the will of God; for our mature minds control not only our physical being, but our spiritual being, our soul and spirit as well. When we walk in the Spirit He lives in our hearts and continually sanctifies us; forgives the sins we will commit, even those sins which we do not even realize we have committed immediately; by our faith in Jesus. This allows our spiritual being to remain holy, so the Spirit can remain living in our hearts; and we will remain holy children of God. Later because we love Jesus we will be sorry for committing any sin, and will repent to our Savior; though we know by our faith in Him, Jesus has already forgive all of our sins.

*Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Ro 12:2 ESV+

*to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.' Ac 26:18 NASB+

 

But when we no longer strive to overcome the sin which will always dwell within our physical being, our mind will begin to follow the desires of the flesh until they overcome our mind. Then our sinful mind will rule over our spiritual being, will make it sinful also; and the Holy Spirit which can live only in a holy place, will be pushed out of our hearts, and we are no longer children of God.

*There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Ro 8:1-4 NKJV+

 

It is very dangerous to believe once saved always saved; for this can give one a false confidence. It is easy for one to be more tolerant towards sin, for God won’t mind this one little sin, if they do not do it often; and since they are once saved, always saved, what is there to be worried about. Soon one willful sin leads to another, until the Spirit is pushed out of their hearts; without them realizing they are no longer Children of God. There is no sacrifice for sin for those who believed they are saved, but are not; for if they believe the lie that they have already been saved; why should they change and put God’s will over their will. This will happen to even those who were given the power of the Spirit to prophesy, cast our demons, and perform miracles; they will lose their faith which made them children of God, and become children of wrath.     

*"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; Depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness .' Matt 7:21-23 NASB+

 

All can be assured we are a child of God, will inherit Heaven when we relinquish our human will to our God, accept the will of our Father, allow the Holy Spirit to come into our hearts, are led by Him forever; so we continue in the faith. We will all be able to finish our race, and will win the crown of righteousness; eternal life with Jesus in a glorified body like His.

*yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach— if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, was made a minister . Col 1:22-23 NASB+

*I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. 2Ti 4:7-8 NKJV+

 

See 10: Holy Spirit will give us time to overcome our sins; by interceding for our sins, according to the will of Our Father

 

6. Who will not forgive others who have sinned against them

 

When someone has wronged us in anyway, our physical mind has the free will to choose; whether to forgive them, or not forgive them for what they have done. Believers who are led by the Spirit will want to forgive them; because if we do not forgive those who have wronged us, our Father will not continue to forgive us.  

*"For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matt 6:14-15 NKJV+

 

This sounds deceptively easy, and is in many simple situations. Often the offender says they are sorry, the one offended simply says that is alright; although a grudge may be held for a short time. But in some more serious matters, whether financial, physical, or personal, it can be very hard for believers to forgive those who have wronged them. It can even be harder to forget the incident without being vindictive to the one who hurt us; some believe destroyed their lives. And the hardest is to pray that Jesus will help those who have caused us so much pain.

 

When we have problems forgiving others, forgetting what they have done, and praying for them; the Spirit continues to sanctify us, forgive our sins immediately, so we can remain holy children of God. Yet at some point of time we must be willing to forgive those who have wronged us, forget it ever happened pray for them, and love them as ourselves. Or our Father will not forgive our sins, whether we are a child of God or not, the Spirit will be pushed out of our hearts, and we will no longer be a child of God.  

*For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more." Heb 8:12 NIV+

*Then his master summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me. And should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?’ And in anger his master delivered him to the jailers, until he should pay all his debt. So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.” Matt 18:32-35 ESV+

*"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate youbless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunicGive to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it backDo to others as you would have them do to you. Lk 6:27-31 NIV+

 

See 10: Holy Spirit will give us time to overcome our sins; by interceding for our sins, according to the will of Our Father

 

7. Try to be saved by our own human efforts

 

Paul tells the Galatians who had received the Spirit; they had been bewitched, because they were now trying to save themselves by following the Old Covenant laws. All the suffering and persecution they had been put through by the Jews and unbelievers was for nothing; if they no longer believed in the gospel, for they were no longer saved.

*You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? Have you suffered so much for nothing--if it really was for nothing? Gal 3:1-3

 

Paul likewise told the Corinthians who received the gospel, and took a stand in its truth by which they were saved. If they did not hold fast to the gospel Paul preached, and no longer believed they would be physically resurrected from the dead; Paul’s preaching and the faith the Corinthians had was in vain. For they had lost their salvation, they were no longer children of God, they were no longer saved.

*Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you standby which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you--unless you believed in vain. 1Co 15:1-2 NKJV+

*Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. 1Co 15:12-14 ESV+

 

See 10: Holy Spirit will give us time to overcome our sin; by interceding for our sins, according to the will of Our Father

 

8. Falling away from God; apostasy

 

There will be many who fall away from the faith, which makes us children of God. This was happening in Paul’s time, is happening in our time also. Our society has embraced all the sinful pleasures of drugs, sexual immorality, abortion; the constant social media attack and mockery on Christians, Christian values; even Jesus is blasphemed on television, movies, the arts. The liberal antichristian views being taught in our schools, our colleges, are inspired by satan, his demons; through the hypocrisy of those who think they are smarter than God. This is pulling the faithful away from our God, especially the younger generation.

*You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, Gal 3:26 NIV+

*But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, 1Ti 4:1-3 NASB+

*For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Eph 6:12 NASB+

 

This falling away will continue, intensify as the time for Jesus to return comes closer; as congregations will want teachers to suit their own desires, turn away from the truth, and follow human ideals. There will also be great falling away just before the antichrist/man of sin/beast comes into power; and our nation is already experiencing it as the Bible is being replaced by the lies of the politically correct agenda of the liberal elites.

*For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. 2Ti 4:3-4 ESV+

*Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy [or falling away from the faith] comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 2Thess 2:3 NASB+

 

See 10: Holy Spirit will give us time to overcome this sin; by interceding for our sins, according to the will of Our Father

 

9. Revelation has 2 sins which are never forgiven

 

Many believers do not take Revelation seriously; they believe the apocalyptic language is too hard for them to understand, the world is not going to end in their lifetime; and Revelation’s gory picture of death, the Lake of Fire is not something they want to study. Yet our Father would have us be prepared for what will happen to all of us when Jesus returns in power; the events which are close to happening now, since the Jewish people have come back to Israel. And our Father would have us warn the wicked what will be in store for them; for if we do not warn the wicked, they will die in sin, but there blood will be upon us for not warning them. If we warn them about what the Word of God tell us, and they do not believe; they will die in their sin; but we will save our soul.

*If I say to the wicked, O wicked one, you shall surely die, and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from his way, that wicked person shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. But if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, that person shall die in his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul. Eze 33:8-9 ESV+

 

Revelation is the explicit words from Jesus (some from the Father also) through John; and is an important warning for all generations. For all generations will receive blessings for just reading it, blessings for hearing it, and blessings for those who take to heart what is written. For all generations will face tribulation as our Father tests our faith, to see who is worthy to be His children; and all will ultimately wind up in God’s Kingdom or Hell.

*Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near. Rev 1:3 NIV+

 

9a. An unforgiveable sin: If a believer takes away from the words in Revelation,

 

Because of the importance of this message and prophecies from Jesus; anyone who takes away from the words of this prophecy shall never share in the tree of life in Heaven, will never be saved, whether children of God or unbelievers. This does not mean those who are sincerely trying to translate this book; but those who take any words from this message, or modify them so the message will be different. One should also be very wary about any who try and change the order of the events in this book.

*I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. Rev 22:18-19 ESV+

 

9b. An unforgiveable sin: if any takes the mark of beast, they go to the Lake of Fire, Hell

 

We should all be prepared to die for Jesus, be prepared to love Jesus more than our family; even as it now happening to Christians in Moslem countries, in North Korea, and other countries. Christians are being killed because they will not renounce their Savior; their children are murdered before their very eyes for not denying Jesus is their Lord. This will continue to escalate until the antichrist comes to make all proclaim him as god or die. And if any worships the antichrist/man of sin/beast, takes his mark which means we believe he is god; child of God or unbeliever have the wrath of God poured out on them; will be tormented in the Lake of Fire/Hell forever.

*Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand,  he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name." Rev 14:9-11 NKJV+

 

We realize many believe Revelation is spiritual and the physical events in it will not happen, others that believers will be raptured to Heaven 7 years or 3½ years before the antichrist/man of sin/beast comes. We believe we will not be gathered up (raptured) by Jesus until after the 3½ years of the great tribulation of the antichrist/man of sin/beast is over; but before the wrath of God. Yet we should all be prepared and ready to meet Jesus if we should die this very minute, or not until the of the reign of the antichrist/man of sin/beast is over. We will be glad to discuss when Jesus will return in God’s Word with anyone. See Tribulation; Jesus Returns (Gathers Up/Raptures Believers); God’s Wrath

 

10. Have indwelling of the Holy Spirit; He intercedes for us.

 

When the Holy Spirit is living in our hearts He continually sanctifies us, forgives our sins as we commit them. As long as we are sorry for the sins we commit, strive to stop doing them, and let the Spirit guide us as we study God’s Word and prayer. to become stronger so we can follow Jesus. So we our physical minds can become stronger in avoiding the sins we will continually be enticed to commit, by the original sin which is embedded within them.

*that I might be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. Ro 15:16 NKJV+

 

Jesus is the vine, those in Jesus are the branches, and our Father will prune the vines. The vines who produce fruit will be pruned by our Father to produce more fruit; and the vines who do not produce fruit when they should will be cut down and burned.

*I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Jn 15:1-2 ESV+

 

The fruit we produce for our God is love, for that is what our God wants. For our free will to love our God is all we have to give Him; everything else He has given us. And only that which is done out of love to our God will please Him. A rich unbeliever can give a billion dollars to keep needy children from starving; yet that gift does not produce fruit for our God, that vine will but cut down and thrown into the fire for it did not produce fruit for out God, was not done out of love for Him.

There are many ways we can produce fruit for our God, show the love we have for Him. Whether by praising our God making Him number one in our lives, telling all about Him, thanking our God for all He has done for us, just talking to Him, loving and helping others as we would have wanted to treated them; as we do the work our Father had planned for us to do before the world was created.

* If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. 1Co 13:1-3 ESV+

*And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1Co 13:13 NIV+

 

There can come a time when our physical mind is overcome by a sin or sins, and sin can start controlling our mind, our lives; though we still love our God above all things. When this happens the Spirit intercedes for us, continues to sanctify us, according to our Father’s will; until we can once more be able to control our sinful desire; with the help of our Father through prayer, by talking with Jesus, or letting the Spirit guide as we read the Word of God. Until we can overcome the temptation we are confronted with, and the Spirit once against is leading our physical mind to follow our God.  

*Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. Ro 8:26-27 NKJV+

 

The Spirit will also intercede for any in whose heart He is living, if our mind does not function correctly for any reason; whether our minds are physically injured, become mentally ill, or for elderly believers whose minds deteriorate. The Spirit will do this until our physical mind heals or dies, or until Jesus returns again.

 

Just as the parable of the Fig tree; the Father can have patience in not removing the Spirit from one’s heart if it does not bear fruit, even extend the time a little longer. But there will be a time if one does not bear fruit; they will be cut off from our God forever.

*And he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. And he said to the vinedresser, ‘Look, for three years now I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down. Why should it use up the ground?’ And he answered him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put on manureThen if it should bear fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’ Lk 13:6

 

Our Father knows those whose hearts the Spirit lives in, but now have chosen to follow their flesh and not the Spirit.

a. For those our Father foreknew would accept His will once more, He gives them the time to come back to Him; by allowing the Spirit to intercede for them. Like the verse above

 

b. Our Father will put through tribulation those who need to be tested, so they have the chance to repent and be born again. Like the prodigal son (Lk 15:11-32).

 

c. Those our Father knows will never submit their will to Him; our Father takes the Spirit from their hearts and they are eternally lost. Like the Jewish believers in 4. above

 

We know we are saved if the Spirit lives in our hearts, and we are led by Him all the days of our lives; for then Jesus and our Father will continually live in our hearts also. We should always be prepared with the help of the Spirit to fight against committing the sins which can overcome us; we must run, persevere, and win the race against our flesh, satan, and the world, for the crown of life.

*By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the worldWhoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.

*For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Gal 6:8 ESV+

 

Always thanking and praising our great God for all He has done for us.

*But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 2Thess 2:13 NIV+
