The Proper Perspective

“(God) has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity,” – 2 Tim. 1:9

This puts things in their proper perspective.

Where Righteousness Dwells

But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells” – 2 Pet. 3:13

Ellicott says, “Righteousness has its home there; is not a wanderer and changeful guest, as on earth, therefore by righteousness must ye make yourselves worthy of entering therein.

This is a promise worthy of our longing; where righteousness lives.

The Lord or the Net

My eyes are ever toward the LORD, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.” – Psa. 25:15

The Lord or the Net:

Whatever net has you now – focus on Jesus and He shall pluck you out.

The One Who Serves

Yet I am among you as the One who serves.” – Jesus (Luke 22:27)
Jesus came to serve
Argumentum a fortiori; argument from the greater to the lesser:
How much more should we?

God Does Not Give Help To Angels

For assuredly He does not give help to angels, but He gives help to the descendant of Abraham.” – Heb. 2:16

It is not angels God helps, it is Man.

There is no salvation for fallen angels, only fallen amen.

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment;” 2 Pet. 2:4

Has God Indeed Said?

Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” – Gen. 3:1

The root of all false teachings asks: Did God really say… ?

The Curse of Babel Has Lifted

Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.” – Acts 2:11

The curse of Babel has lifted.

Christ Is Our Life

When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” – Col. 3:4

Christ is our life.

To Bring Us To God

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God,” – 1 Pet. 3:18

Jesus died on the cross to bring us to God.

You can’t bring yourself.

Without Jesus there is no way to God.

Gentle and Humble In Heart

“Learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart” – Jesus (Matt. 11:29)

Jesus is gentle and humble in heart.

Learn from Him.
