I Corinthians 15:53-55 NLT

55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”

II Corinthians 5:1-10 NLT
1 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God Himself and not by human hands.
2 We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing.
3 For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies]
4 While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life.
5 God Himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee He has given us
His Holy Spirit.
6 So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with The Lord.
7 For we live by believing and not by seeing.
8 Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with The Lord.
9 So whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please Him.
10 For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.

I Thessalonians 4:13-18 NLT (The Hope of the Resurrection)
13 And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope.
14 For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with Him the believers who have died.
15 We tell you this directly from The Lord: We who are still living when The Lord returns will not meet Him ahead of those who have died.
16 For The Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves.
17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet The Lord in the air. Then we will be with The Lord forever.
18 So encourage each other with these words.

II Thessalonians 2:16,17 NLT
16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who loved us and by His grace gave us Eternal Comfort and a wonderful hope,
17 comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say.

II Timothy 1:9,10 NLT
9 For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was His plan from before the beginning of time—to show us His grace through Christ Jesus.
10 And now He has made all of this plain to us by the appearing of Christ Jesus, our Savior. He broke the power of death and illuminated The Way to Life and immortality through the Good News.

I John 3:2,3 KJV
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.

Revelation 2:10 KJV
" thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of Life.

Revelation 14:13 KJV
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in The Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith The Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.

Revelation 21:4 KJV
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Revelation 22:4 KJV
And they shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads.

Hes The Healer Of Broken Hearts

Hes the healer of broken hearts
He'll mend your shattered dreams
He'll pick up the threads of your broken life
And weave them together again.

To your soul He'll bring peace and joy
Your friend in need He'll (always) be
Hes the healer of broken hearts
Is Jesus of (blue) Galilee.

Things don't always happen the way we wish they would. God hears all the prayers of His people, rest assured of that, but the reasons as to why they are not all answered the way we wish, is manifold.

Perseverance of faith, trust, belief, etc. etc. The Apostle Paul tells us....

Bible Lesson: Titles Of The Church: Church Title: Habitation Of God.

Bible Lesson: Titles Of The Church:

Church Title: Habitation Of God.

Bible Text:

Ephesians 2:13-22 KJV
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by
The Blood Of Christ.
14 For He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in Himself of twain one new Man, so making peace;
16 And that He might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
18 For through Him we both have access by One Spirit unto The Father.
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of
The Household Of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being The Chief Corner Stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in
The Lord:
22 In whom ye also are built together for an Habitation Of God through The Spirit.

Ephesians 2:13-22 NLT
13 But now you have been united with Christ Jesus. Once you were far away from God, but now you have been brought near to Him through The Blood Of Christ.
14 For Christ Himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in His own body on the cross, He broke down the wall of hostility that separated us.
15 He did this by ending the system of law with its commandments and regulations. He made peace between Jews and Gentiles by creating in Himself one new people from the two groups.
16 Together as one body, Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of His death on the cross, and our hostility toward each other was put to death.
17 He brought this Good News of peace to you Gentiles who were far away from Him, and peace to the Jews who were near.
18 Now all of us can come to The Father through the same Holy Spirit because of what Christ has done for us.

(A Temple for The Lord)
19 So now you Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people. You are members of God’s family.
20 Together, we are His house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And The Cornerstone is Christ Jesus Himself.
21 We are carefully joined together in Him, becoming a holy temple for The Lord.
22 Through Him you Gentiles are also being made part of this dwelling where God lives by His Spirit.

When one considers building a house of worship, there are literally scores of choices for stones, which may be used. (Types of building stones: - cut and paste into your browser -click return.)

Question: Does God need a temple?

Acts 17:24,25 NLT
24 “He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since He is
Lord Of Heaven And Earth, He doesn’t live in man-made temples,
25 and human hands can’t serve His needs—for He has no needs. He himself gives Life and breath to everything, and He satisfies every need.

Answer: There is nothing that God needs, and yet that is not to say that He does not desire something.

Our Lord, desires a temple, created with stones, that no contractor has ever used, a temple built with living stones.

I Peter 2:1-10 KJV
1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,
2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of The Word, that ye may grow thereby:
3 If so be ye have tasted that The Lord is gracious.
4 To whom coming, as unto A Living Stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
6 Wherefore also it is contained in The Scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion
A Chief Corner Stone, Elect, Precious: and he that believeth on Him shall not be confounded.
7 Unto you therefore which believe He is Precious: but unto them which be disobedient, The Stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made The Head Of The Corner,
8 And A Stone Of Stumbling, and A Rock Of Offence, even to them which stumble at
The Word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His Marvelous Light;
10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

I Corinthians 3:9,16,17 KJV
9 For we are laborers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that The Spirit Of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

I Corinthians 6:19 KJV
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?

II Corinthians 6:16 KJV
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.

Ephesians 2:18-22 KJV
18 For through Him (The Lord Jesus) we both have access by one Spirit unto The Father.
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being The Chief Corner Stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in
The Lord:
22 In whom ye also are built together for an habitation of God through The Spirit.

Revelation 21:3 KJV
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.

Are you, a part of the Spiritual House our Lord is building? You can be, by calling upon The Lord, and asking Him to forgive you of your sins, and to be your Savior.

John 3:14-21 KJV
14 "...The Son Of Man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of The Only Begotten Son Of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth The Light, neither cometh to The Light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth Truth cometh to The Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

You cannot be a Living Stone in The Spiritual House of The Lord, unless you have repented of your sins, and taken The Lord as your Savior. And if you have, the psalmist tells us...

Psalm 118:15 KJV
The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous:

May that be true of you, a Living Stone, put in place, by the loving hands of The Master Builder, and Savior The Lord Jesus Christ.

Bible Questions Answered:
“...loneliness the terrible loneliness...”
Doreen/ Sydney, New South Wales Australia

Bible Answer:

Bible Texts:

How cruel, indeed, the pangs of loneliness. Our Living God Never intended that man ever would be alone and forsaken!

Psalm 38:11 NLT
My loved ones and friends stay away, fearing my disease. Even my own family stands at a distance.

Psalm 102:7 KJV
I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.

Sin, separates, and it has separated us, from our loving Heavenly Father. The answer for loneliness is to return, return to our Creator, and Savior, who has come so that we may be reunited, and that forever.

II Corinthians 5:21 NLT
For God (The Father) made Christ (His Son), who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

Acts 2:21 KJV
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of The Lord shall be saved.

Did Jesus know loneliness?

John 16:32 KJV
Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave Me alone: and yet I am not alone, because The Father is with Me.

The Apostle Paul?

II Timothy 4:16-18 KJV
16 At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge.

(But the apostle, had an answer!)

17 Notwithstanding The Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.
18 And The Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto His heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Psalm 27:10 KJV
When my father and my mother forsake me, then The Lord will take me up.

Never Alone

I've seen the lightning flashing,
And heard the thunder roll,
I've felt sin's breakers dashing,
Trying to conquer my soul;
I've heard the voice of my Savior,
Telling me still to fight on,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

Refrain: (Sing Twice)
No, never alone,
No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

The world's fierce winds are blowing,
Temptation's sharp and keen,
I have a peace in knowing
My Savior stands between-
He stands to shield me from danger,
When earthly friends are gone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

When in affliction's valley
I'm treading the road of care,
My Savior helps me to carry
My cross when heavy to bear,
Though all around me is darkness,
Earthly joys all flown;
My Savior whispers His promise,
"I never will leave thee alone."

He died for me on the mountain,
For me they pierced His side,
For me He opened the fountain,
The crimson, cleansing tide;
For me He's waiting in glory,
Seated upon His throne,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at The Right Hand Of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Hebrews 13:5 KJV
"...for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Dear friend, call upon The Lord today, ask Him to be your Savior, and you will find you are no longer, alone! God The Holy Spirit will make His abode within you, to comfort and encourage you.

Revelation 3:20 KJV
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him..."

Atomic Weapons

Bible Questions Answered:
“Does the bible talk about atomic bombs?...”
Ralph/ Buffalo, New York U.S.A.

Bible Answer:

Bible Texts:

The following scriptures may well speak of the sole judgment and power of God or that of atomic weapons.

Psalm 50:3 KJV
Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about Him.

Psalm 97:3 KJV
A fire goeth before Him, and burneth up His enemies round about.

Isaiah 13:1-13 KJV
6 Howl ye; for The Day Of The Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from
The Almighty.
7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:
8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
9 Behold, The Day Of The Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of The Lord Of Hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger.

Isaiah 24:1,19,20 NLT
1 Look! The Lord is about to destroy the earth and make it a vast wasteland. He devastates the surface of the earth and scatters the people.
19 The earth has broken up. It has utterly collapsed; it is violently shaken.
20 The earth staggers like a drunk. It trembles like a tent in a storm. It falls and will not rise again, for the guilt of its rebellion is very heavy.

Isaiah 64:2 KJV
As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence!

Isaiah 66:15,16 KJV
15 For, behold, The Lord will come with fire, and with His chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire.
16 For by fire and by His sword will The Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of The Lord shall be many.

Jeremiah 25:30-33 NLT
30 “Now prophesy all these things, and say to them, “‘The Lord will roar against His own land from His holy dwelling in heaven. He will shout like those who tread grapes; He will shout against everyone on earth.
31 His cry of judgment will reach the ends of the earth, for The Lord will bring His case against all the nations. He will judge all the people of the earth, slaughtering the wicked with the sword. I, The Lord, have spoken!’”
32 This is what The Lord Of Heaven’s Armies says: “Look! Disaster will fall upon nation after nation! A great whirlwind of fury is rising from the most distant corners of the earth!”
33 In that day those The Lord has slaughtered will fill the earth from one end to the other. No one will mourn for them or gather up their bodies to bury them. They will be scattered on the ground like manure.

Ezekiel 20:47,48 KJV
47 And say to the forest of the south, Hear The Word Of The Lord; Thus saith

48 And all flesh shall see that I The Lord have kindled it: it shall not be quenched.

Ezekiel 28:1-23 NLT (A Message for Gog)
1 This is another message that came to me from The Lord:
2 “Son of man, turn and face Gog of the land of Magog, the prince who rules over the nations of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him.
3 Give him this message from The Sovereign Lord: Gog, I am your enemy!
4 I will turn you around and put hooks in your jaws to lead you out with your whole army—your horses and charioteers in full armor and a great horde armed with shields and swords.
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya will join you, too, with all their weapons.
6 Gomer and all its armies will also join you, along with the armies of Beth-togarmah from the distant north, and many others.
7 “Get ready; be prepared! Keep all the armies around you mobilized, and take command of them.
8 A long time from now you will be called into action. In the distant future you will swoop down on the land of Israel, which will be enjoying peace after recovering from war and after its people have returned from many lands to the mountains of Israel.
9 You and all your allies—a vast and awesome army—will roll down on them like a storm and cover the land like a cloud.
10 “This is what The Sovereign Lord says: At that time evil thoughts will come to your mind, and you will devise a wicked scheme.
11 You will say, ‘Israel is an unprotected land filled with unwalled villages! I will march against her and destroy these people who live in such confidence!
12 I will go to those formerly desolate cities that are now filled with people who have returned from exile in many nations. I will capture vast amounts of plunder, for the people are rich with livestock and other possessions now. They think the whole world revolves around them!’
13 But Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish will ask, ‘Do you really think the armies you have gathered can rob them of silver and gold? Do you think you can drive away their livestock and seize their goods and carry off plunder?’
14 “Therefore, son of man, prophesy against Gog. Give him this message from
The Sovereign Lord: When My people are living in peace in their land, then you will rouse yourself.
15 You will come from your homeland in the distant north with your vast cavalry and your mighty army,
16 and you will attack My people Israel, covering their land like a cloud. At that time in the distant future, I will bring you against My land as everyone watches, and My holiness will be displayed by what happens to you, Gog. Then all the nations will know that I am The Lord.
17 “This is what The Sovereign Lord asks: Are you the one I was talking about long ago, when I announced through Israel’s prophets that in the future I would bring you against My people?
18 But this is what The Sovereign Lord says: When Gog invades the land of Israel, My fury will boil over!
19 In My jealousy and blazing anger, I promise a mighty shaking in the land of Israel on that day.
20 All living things—the fish in the sea, the birds of the sky, the animals of the field, the small animals that scurry along the ground, and all the people on earth—will quake in terror at My presence. Mountains will be thrown down; cliffs will crumble; walls will fall to the earth.
21 I will summon the sword against you on all the hills of Israel, says
The Sovereign Lord. Your men will turn their swords against each other.
22 I will punish you and your armies with disease and bloodshed; I will send torrential rain, hailstones, fire, and burning sulfur!
23 In this way, I will show My greatness and holiness, and I will make Myself known to all the nations of the world. Then they will know that I am The Lord.

Joel 2:1-3;30,31 KJV
1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for The Day Of The Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible Day Of The Lord Come.

Zephaniah 1:17,18 KJV
17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against The Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in
The Day Of The Lord's Wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of His jealousy: for He shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

Zechariah 14:12 KJV
And this shall be the plague wherewith The Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

Malachi 4:1 KJV
For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith The Lord Of Hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

Matthew 24:6-8;21,22,29 KJV
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

Luke 12:49 KJV
I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?

I Thessalonians 5:3 KJV
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

II Peter 3:10-12 KJV
10 But The Day Of The Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and Godliness,
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of The Day Of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

Revelation 6:12-17 NKJV
12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.
13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.
14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.
15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains,
16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of The Lamb!
17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

Revelation 8:7-12 KJV
7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

Revelation 9:18 KJV
By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

Revelation 16:1-3,8
1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshiped his image.
3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

Friend, put your trust in The Lord.

II Peter 2:4-9 KJV
4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly;
7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the Godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

Bible Lesson: Titles Of The Church: Husbandry - God's

Bible Lesson: Titles Of The Church:

Church Title: God's Husbandry.

Bible Text:

I Corinthians 3:9 KJV
For we are laborers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.

The cultivation and production of edible crops or of animals for food; agriculture; farming.

Our heavenly Father, has called us as Christian people, to be both branches of The Vine, producing fruit, and a part of His great Storehouse.

The Word:

John 15:1-8 KJV
1 I am The True Vine, and My Father is The Husbandman.
2 Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth (prunes) it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3 Now ye are clean through The Word which I have spoken unto you.
4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in The Vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me.
5 I am The Vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be My disciples.

Hebrews 12:1-13 NLT (God’s Discipline Proves His Love)
1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.
2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, The Champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting Him, He endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now He is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.
3 Think of all the hostility He endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up.
4 After all, you have not yet given your lives in your struggle against sin.
5 And have you forgotten the encouraging words God spoke to you as His children? He said, “My child, don’t make light of The Lord’s discipline, and don’t give up when He corrects you.
6 For The Lord disciplines those He loves, and He punishes each one He accepts as His child.”
7 As you endure this divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as His own children. Who ever heard of a child who is never disciplined by its father?
8 If God doesn’t discipline you as He does all of His children, it means that you are illegitimate and are not really His children at all.
9 Since we respected our earthly fathers who disciplined us, shouldn’t we submit even more to the discipline of The Father of our spirits, and live forever?
10 For our earthly fathers disciplined us for a few years, doing the best they knew how. But God’s discipline is always good for us, so that we might share in His holiness.

11 No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.

John 15:2 KJV
and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth (prunes) it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

12 So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees.
13 Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong.

Deuteronomy 28:8 NLT
The Lord will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The Lord your God will bless you in the land He is giving you.

Proverbs 3:9-12 NLT
9 Honor The Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce.
10 Then He will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine.
11 My child, don’t reject The Lord’s discipline, and don’t be upset when He corrects you.
12 For The Lord corrects those He loves, just as A Father corrects a child in whom He delights.

Haggai 2:19 NLT
I am giving you a promise now while the seed is still in the barn. You have not yet harvested your grain, and your grapevines, fig trees, pomegranates, and olive trees have not yet produced their crops. But from this day onward I will bless you.”

Matthew 13:30 KJV
Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into My barn.

A figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance, as in “A mighty fortress is our God.”.

God's people, have been likened to both the crop, and the building that stores them.

As a branch of The Vine, to be fruitful, our God tells us, must be purged (i.e. pruned). Does the branch feel any pain? Yes, but The Husbandman does it so that our fruit will become much more abundant.

Hebrews 12:7 KJV
As you endure this divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as His own children...”

God's people a spiritual building, God's storehouse.

Ephesians 2:19-22 KJV
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of
The Household Of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being
The Chief Corner Stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto
an holy temple in The Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through The Spirit.

Our God is at work in His garden (the world).
Dear Christian, take heart, keep your eyes fixed on The Champion of our faith.

Isaiah 61:3 KJV
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called
trees of righteousness, the planting of The Lord, that He might be glorified.
