Denying The Faith

Bible Questions Answered:
“Pals of ours neighbors, we all together accepted Christ almost several years ago. Lately when we speak of about God, they leg it, what does God expect then?...”
Laurence/ Bristol, United Kingdom (England)

Bible Answer:
Can anyone doubt that we are living in the end times.
Our Lord spoke much about denial.

Matthew 10:32-39 KJV
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven.
33 But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven.
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after Me, is not worthy of Me.
39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for My sake shall find it.

Mark 8:34-38 KJV
34 And when He had called the people unto Him with His disciples also, He said unto them, Whosoever will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for My sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.
36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall The Son Of Man be ashamed, when He cometh in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.

Luke 9:62 KJV
And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

John 15:5,6 NLT
5 “Yes, I am The Vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in Me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from Me you can do nothing.
6 Anyone who does not remain in Me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned.

I Timothy 1:18,19 KJV (Apostle Paul warns Timothy.)
18 Timothy, my son, here are my instructions for you, based on the prophetic words spoken about you earlier. May they help you fight well in The Lord’s battles.
19 Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear. For some people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their faith has been shipwrecked.

I Timothy 4:1,2 NLT
1 Now The Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.
2 These people are hypocrites and liars, and their consciences are dead.

II Timothy 2:11-13 NLT
11 This is a trustworthy saying: If we die with Him, we will also live with Him.
12 If we endure hardship, we will reign with Him. If we deny Him, He will deny us.
13 If we are unfaithful, He remains Faithful, for He cannot deny who He is.

II Timothy 4:3,4 NLT
3 For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.
4 They will reject The Truth and chase after myths.

Hebrews 3:12 KJV
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from The Living God.

Hebrews 10:38,39 KJV
38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him.
39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition (destruction) NLT); but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

II Peter 2:20-22 NLT
20 And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before.
21 It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life.
22 They prove The Truth of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit.” And another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”

II Peter 3:17 KJV
Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

Yes The Word Of God, warns us....
I Timothy 4:1 NLT
Now The Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith;

Now is the time for Christian people to let their Light shine.

Luke 11:33 NLT
No one lights a lamp and then hides it or puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where its light can be seen by all who enter the house.

Now is the time to pray for friends who may have fallen away, and now is the time to let our life shine in faithfulness for our soon coming Savior!

Matthew 24:34-51 NLT
34 I tell you The Truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place. \
35 Heaven and earth will disappear, but My words will never disappear.
36 “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or
The Son Himself. Only The Father knows.
37 “When The Son Of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day.
38 In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat.
39 People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when The Son Of Man comes.
40 “Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left.
41 Two women will be grinding flour at the mill; one will be taken, the other left.
42 “So you, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming.
43 Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would keep watch and not permit his house to be broken into.
44 You also must be ready all the time, for The Son Of Man will come when least expected.
45 “A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them.
46 If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward.
47 I tell you The Truth, the master will put that servant in charge of all he owns.
48 But what if the servant is evil and thinks, ‘My master won’t be back for a while,’
49 and he begins beating the other servants, partying, and getting drunk?
50 The master will return unannounced and unexpected,
51 and he will cut the servant to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Hebrews 10:23 KJV
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is Faithful that promised;)

Psalm 36:1-3 NLT
1 Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all.
2 In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are.
3 Everything they say is crooked and deceitful. They refuse to act wisely or do good.

Proverbs 12:5 KJV
The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.

"... deceive not with thy lips."

Proverbs 27:6 KJV

Isaiah 28:15-19 NLT (The Lord rebukes proud Samaria.)
15 You boast, “We have struck a bargain to cheat death and have made a deal to dodge the grave. The coming destruction can never touch us, for we have built a strong refuge made of lies and deception.
16 Therefore, this is what The Sovereign Lord says: “Look! I am placing A Foundation Stone in Jerusalem,
A Firm And Tested Stone. It is A Precious Cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken.
17 I will test you with the measuring line of justice and the plumb line of righteousness. Since your refuge is made of lies, a hailstorm will knock it down. Since it is made of deception, a flood will sweep it away.
18 I will cancel the bargain you made to cheat death, and I will overturn your deal to dodge the grave. When the terrible enemy sweeps through, you will be trampled into the ground.
19 Again and again that flood will come, morning after morning, day and night, until you are carried away.”

Jeremiah 5:26-28 NLT
26 “Among My people are wicked men who lie in wait for victims like a hunter hiding in a blind. They continually set traps to catch people.
27 Like a cage filled with birds, their homes are filled with evil plots. And now they are great and rich.
28 They are fat and sleek, and there is no limit to their wicked deeds.

Jeremiah 9:5-9 KJV
5 And they will deceive every one his neighbor, and will not speak The Truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.
6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know Me, saith the Lord.
7 Therefore thus saith The Lord Of Hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of My people?
8 Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait.
9 Shall I not visit them for these things? saith The Lord: shall not My soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

Micah 6:12 KJV

21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

Romans 3:13 KJV
Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

II Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

II Thessalonians 2:1-4 KJV
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin (Anti-Christ) be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

II Timothy 3:13 KJV
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

Titus 1:10-13 NLT
10 For there are many rebellious people who engage in useless talk and deceive others. This is especially true of those who insist on circumcision for salvation.
11 They must be silenced, because they are turning whole families away from The Truth by their false teaching. And they do it only for money.
12 Even one of their own men, a prophet from Crete, has said about them, “The people of Crete are all liars, cruel animals, and lazy gluttons.”
13 This is true. So reprimand them sternly to make them strong in the faith.

Be Not Deceived:

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Romans 16:17,18 KJV
17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

I Corinthians 6:9,10 NLT
9 Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves (Be not deceived: KJV). Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality,

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

Ephesians 5:6 KJV

I John 3:6-10 KJV
6 Whosoever abideth in Him (Jesus Christ) sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him.
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.

II John 7 KJV
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

God's Armor For His Children:

Ephesians 6:10-18 KJV
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in The Lord, and in the power of His might.

11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against
powers, against
the rulers of the darkness of this world, against
spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with Truth, and having on the breastplate of Righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of Peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is The Word Of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in The Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Glass-Seeing Through

Bible Questions Answered:
What was apostle speaking when he say he was looking through dark glass?
Kefentse/ Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Bible Answer:

I Corinthians 13:12 KJV
For now we see through a glass*, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

*Glass-Greek: Esoptrn-(Es-op-tron): A mirror.

The American Standard Version Bible correctly translates the Greek word esoptrn as, “mirror.”

I Corinthians 13:12 ASV
For now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know fully even as also I was fully known.

If you were to see a mirror of the Apostle's day, you would understand, for this is what he was referring to.

A mirror in the Apostle's day, was not a section of glass, covered on the reverse side with silver.
In Paul's day, a mirror was polished, bronze or brass plate.

At Thebes, archeologists have unearthed ancient mirrors buried for centuries, and yet when cleaned and polished, give a reflection of one's face. These ancient mirrors were usually round with handles.

Exodus 35:20-29 KJV
20 And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.
21 And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the Lord's offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all His service, and for the holy garments.
22 And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered offered an offering of gold unto the Lord.
23 And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, and red skins of rams, and badgers' skins, brought them.
24 Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought the Lord's offering: and every man, with whom was found shittim wood for any work of the service, brought it.
25 And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.
26 And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun goats' hair.
27 And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate;
28 And spice, and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.
29 The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the Lord, every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all manner of work, which the Lord had commanded to be made by the hand of Moses.

Here we read of the people coming together to give of what they had, so that the Tabernacle, could be built.

Exodus 35:24 KJV
Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought the Lord's offering:

No doubt some of that brass, were the mirrors of the people, again certainly not the silvered glass that we are familiar with today.

The beloved Apostle Paul, stated (that in his day,) that he saw his own image through a “mirror” darkly, “but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”

His image in brass, was a dark reflection at best.
And he intimates that, life itself has its darkness, that is we don't always understand everything as we wish we could. Life, death, the very existence of God. We progress as it were a child, from basic truths on to greater truths.

I Corinthians 13:8-13 KJV
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

I John 3:1-3 KJV
1 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.

Bible Lesson: Miracles Of The Old Testament: Twenty Blessed Loaves Feed One Hundred People.

Occasion: Miraculous Supply Of Food.

Location: Gilgal.

Bible Text:
II Kings 4:42-44 NLT
42 One day a man from Baal-shalishah brought the man of God (Elisha) a sack of fresh grain and twenty loaves of barley bread made from the first grain of his harvest. Elisha said, “Give it to the people so they can eat.”
43 “What?” his servant exclaimed. “Feed a hundred people with only this?” But Elisha repeated, “Give it to the people so they can eat, for this is what The Lord says: Everyone will eat, and there will even be some left over!”
44 And when they gave it to the people, there was plenty for all and some left over, just as The Lord had promised.

One day a man from Baal-shalishah brought the man of God (Elisha) a sack of fresh grain and twenty loaves of barley bread made from the first grain of his harvest.

It was the duty of the Jews to bring the first fruits of harvest to the priest, this covenant meant that the rest of their crops would be blessed. The man from Baal-shalishah, presented his offering to Elisha, the man of God.

Jesus Christ, said that we should tithe!

Matthew 23:23,24 NLT (Jesus)
23 “What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income from your herb gardens, but you ignore the more important aspects of the law—justice, mercy, and faith. You should tithe, yes, but do not neglect the more important things.
24 Blind guides! You strain your water so you won’t accidentally swallow a gnat, but you swallow a camel!

Luke 11:42 NLT (Jesus)
What sorrow awaits you Pharisees! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income from your herb gardens, but you ignore justice and the love of God. You should tithe, yes, but do not neglect the more important things.

God has blessed us with harvests of good health, jobs, housing, wealth, to buy food, and clothing, etc.

Psalm 68:19 KJV
Blessed be The Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.

And it is our responsibility to bless God's church and His people, with our gifts of faithfulness and love!

Luke 6:38 KJV (Jesus)
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

One soon coming day, our Lord will show us what our faithful giving has done, and its reward!

Do you have any bread?

John 6:28-51 KJV
28 Then said they unto Him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him whom He hath sent.
30 They said therefore unto Him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but My Father giveth you The True Bread from heaven.
33 For The Bread Of God is He which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
34 Then said they unto Him, Lord, evermore give us this Bread.
35 And Jesus said unto them, I am The Bread Of Life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst.
36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen Me, and believe not.
37 All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.
38 For I came down from heaven, not to do Mine own will, but the will of Him that sent Me.
39 And this is The Father's will which hath sent Me, that of all which He hath given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of Him that sent Me, that every one which seeth The Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
41 The Jews then murmured at Him, because He said, I am The Bread which came down from heaven.
42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that He saith, I came down from heaven?
43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
44 No man can come to Me, except The Father which hath sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of The Father, cometh unto Me.
46 Not that any man hath seen The Father, save He which is of God, He hath seen The Father.
47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me hath everlasting life.
48 I am that Bread Of Life.
49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
50 This is The Bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
51 I am The Living Bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this Bread, he shall live for ever:
and The Bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

As a Christian, you have The Bread Of Life!
Have you given of your Bread? To the (spiritually) starving, in time of famine?

Matthew 28:18-20 NLT
18 Jesus came and told His disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.
19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of The Father and The Son and The Holy Spirit.
20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Mark 16:15 KJV
And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Even the smallest gift to The Lord, will be rewarded!

Mark 9:41 NLT
If anyone gives you even a cup of water because you belong to The Messiah, I tell you The Truth, that person will surely be rewarded.

I Corinthians 15:58 NLT
So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for The Lord, for you know that nothing you do for The Lord is ever useless.

Hebrews 6:10,11 NLT
10 For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for Him and how you have shown your love to Him by caring for other believers, as you still do.
11 Our great desire is that you will keep on loving others as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true.

And ...Elisha said, “Give it to the people so they can eat.”
What?” his servant exclaimed (Elisha's servant Gehazi). “Feed a hundred people with only this?”

But Elisha repeated, “Give it to the people so they can eat, for this is what The Lord says: Everyone will eat, and there will even be some left over!”

Friends, the tests of life, will see to whether or not we believe the Word Of The Lord, and have faith!

Elisha believed The Lord, and The Lord, honored his faith.

And when they gave it to the people, there was plenty for all and some left over, just as The Lord had promised.

Romans 10:17 KJV
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by The Word Of God.

This is why reading The Word, is so important. Important, because it builds our faith!

Hebrews 11:6 KJV
But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

John 9:4 KJV
I must work the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

Matthew 5:42 KJV
Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

Luke 6:30 KJV
Give to every man that asketh of thee..."

Romans 12:20 KJV
Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink..."

I Peter 3:15 KJV
But sanctify The Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give (of The Bread Of Life) an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

Philippians 2:7 KJV
But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of A servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

I Timothy 3:16 KJV

Jehovah Jireh

Bible Questions Answered:
“What exactly did Jesus have in mind when he said we shouldn't be concerned about food to eat or our clothing to wear? We sure need these things...”
Shondra/ Yorkton, Canada Saskatchewan

Bible Answer:
Bible Text:
Matthew 6:24-34 NLT
24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?
26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your Heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to Him than they are?
27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing,
29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.
30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
31 “So don’t worry (Therefore take no thought*-KJV) about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’
32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your Heavenly Father already knows all your needs.
33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.
34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Thought-Greek: Merimnao (Mer-im-nah-o): To be anxious: (have) care, take thought.
Mentioned no less than six times from verse 25-34.

The key verse to our Lord's teaching is ….
Matthew 6:33 KJV
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 6:33 NLT
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.

We live in an evil world, were men place them selves, and their selfish desires first, and God, last if at all.

Culinary (Food) Hedonism.
Fashion (clothes) Hedonism.

Pursuit of or devotion to pleasure, especially to the pleasures of the senses.
(American Heritage Dictionary)

May the food we eat, or the clothes we wear, become godlike to some, to the extent that all else becomes second?

This is what our Lord was warning about!
Do we need food, do we need clothing, of course, but what our Lord was discussing, was the extremes to which some people go.

Hard to believe in a world where so many millions are starving for food, that some must have above all else, special culinary delights, at no matter the expense. The best chefs, the best restaurants, etc.
And how they are boasted about!

And the world of High Fashion Clothing, is not something to take second place. In a industry that rings in hundreds of billions of dollars every year, high fashion clothing is a live or die, must for some.

These are the extremes that our Lord had reference to.

Our minds, our hearts are not to be burdened down with such things!
The God who knows the needs of the birds, and the lilies of the field, knows our needs, and He will supply.

Matthew 6:32 NLT
These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your Heavenly Father already knows all your needs.

Genesis 22:10-14 KJV
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
11 And The Angel Of The Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
12 And He said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from Me.
13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah jireh*: as it is said to this day, In the mount of The Lord it shall be seen.

*Jehovah Jireh-Hebrew: Yehovah Yireh (Yeh-ho-vaw-yir-eh): Jehovah will see (to It).

Our Lord, certainly did “not,” mean that we are to sit back and do nothing for our food and clothing, and that God would supply everything...that is definitely not the message here of our Lord.

Proverbs 20:4 KJV
The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.

Oh how our enemy wants to get us too far to the right or too far to the left!
The blessing of the Lord is to walk the straight and narrow road of making The Lord Jesus Christ the center (The Lord, The Master) of our lives, with no one, or anything else!

Matthew 7:13,14 KJV
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.

Exodus 20:3 KJV
Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.

Romans 14:17 KJV
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in The Holy Ghost.

I Timothy 6:5-12 KJV
5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of The Truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, where unto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

Lamentations 3:22,23 KJV
22 It is of The Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Philippians 4:11 KJV (The Apostle Paul.)
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

“I have young friends who say I will not live for Christ now, when old then will live for him. And what is the answer?

Deuteronomy 30:15-20 NLT (Moses last words to God's people.)
15 “Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster.
16 For I command you this day to love the Lord your God and to keep his commands, decrees, and regulations by walking in His ways. If you do this, you will live and multiply, and The Lord your God will bless you..."
17 “But if your heart turns away and you refuse to listen, and if you are drawn away to serve and worship other gods,
18 then I warn you now that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live a long, good life..."
19 “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!
20 You can make this choice by loving The Lord your God, obeying Him, and committing yourself firmly to Him. This is the key to your life. And if you love and obey The Lord, you will live long..."

Joshua 24:14,15 KJV (Joshua commands Israel to decide.)
14 Now therefore fear The Lord, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth...serve ye the Lord.
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve The Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve The Lord.

I Kings 18:21 KJV
And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if The Lord be God, follow Him: but if Baal, then follow him..."

Psalm 32:5,6 NLT
5 Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to The Lord.” And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone. Interlude
6 Therefore, let all the Godly pray to you while there is still time, that they may not drown in the flood waters of judgment.

Psalm 95:7,8 KJV
7 For He is our God; and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. Today if ye will hear His voice,
8 Harden not your heart..."

II Corinthians 6:2 KJV
(For He saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

We have no promise of tomorrow!
Proverbs 27:1 KJV
Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.

Many are the people who have not had a second for prayer, before they died. What ever their spiritual standing was before death, after death, it was theirs for eternity!

Luke 13:1-5 NLT (Now is the time for receiving Christ!)
1 About this time Jesus was informed that Pilate had murdered some people from Galilee as they were offering sacrifices at the Temple.
2 “Do you think those Galileans were worse sinners than all the other people from Galilee?” Jesus asked. “Is that why they suffered?
3 Not at all! And you will perish, too, unless you repent of your sins and turn to God.
(No time to pray!)
4 And what about the eighteen people who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them? Were they the worst sinners in Jerusalem?
5 No, and I tell you again that unless you repent, you will perish, too.”

Not only is important to turn to The Lord, today, because we know not what the very next minute holds for us., but because, if we pass there is “no,” second chance salvation!

Salvation should be decided immediately, because there is no second chance on the other side, and because ….of the great “loss,” one suffers of moment by moment of rejection!

In the parable of the Prodigal son (Luke 15:11-31 KJV), we see the following facts.
The prodigal, upon returning home, realized, he owned “nothing,” there, as he had thrown his inheritance away on “ riotous living”, and it could not be bought back!

The father told his oldest son....
Luke 15:31 KJV
And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.

When the Savior is rejected, valuable “time,” is forever lost, never to be able to be retrieved!
Time that could have brought many rewards in the next life, forever “lost.”

Some have said that sin is like pounding a nail into a wall. You may look at it one day, and say, I wish I hadn't done that. Well simple, I will just pull the nail out. Simple all right, just to repent.
But there remains one thing.....the hole still remains!

Galatians 6:7 KJV
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

A person, can come to The Lord, and repent and change their lives, thank God, but.......
the things they have done, will follow them!
The crop they have sown, they will reap!

God forgives sins, but He never says He will undue the crop you have planted, or replace the time you have forever thrown away!

II Corinthians 6:2 KJV
(For He saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

Another reason, why turning to The Lord, should "not," be delayed....
Every day, your soul becomes more and more hardened towards the things of The Lord.
After a lifetime of rejection, the day will come when an individual, will no longer want to turn to The Lord, then it is forever too late!

Hebrews 3:15 KJV
While it is said, Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts..."

When our God tells us this, He is doing His best to stop us from sowing a lifetime of heartache, and regret!

Hebrews 2:3 KJV
How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation..."

Hebrews 12:25 KJV

See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from Him that speaketh from heaven:
