Behold, I will send you Elijahrepparttar prophet beforerepparttar 147162 coming ofrepparttar 147163 great and dreadful day ofrepparttar 147164 Lord: And he shall turnrepparttar 147165 heart ofrepparttar 147166 fathers torepparttar 147167 children, andrepparttar 147168 heart ofrepparttar 147169 children to their fathers, lest I come and smiterepparttar 147170 earth with a curse. Malachi 4:5-6

He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth withrepparttar 147171 sword must be killed withrepparttar 147172 sword. Here isrepparttar 147173 patience andrepparttar 147174 faith ofrepparttar 147175 saints. Rev. 13:10 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resistethrepparttar 147176 proud, but giveth grace untorepparttar 147177 humble. James 4:6 Confirmingrepparttar 147178 souls ofrepparttar 147179 disciples, and exhorting them to continue inrepparttar 147180 faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter intorepparttar 147181 kingdom of God. Acts 14:22

For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. And ye have forgottenrepparttar 147182 exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thourepparttar 147183 chastening ofrepparttar 147184 Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whomrepparttar 147185 Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whomrepparttar 147186 father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Hebrews 12:3-8

Andrepparttar 147187 nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, andrepparttar 147188 time ofrepparttar 147189 dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servantsrepparttar 147190 prophets, and torepparttar 147191 saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroyrepparttar 147192 earth. Rev. 11:18 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: andrepparttar 147193 Lord God ofrepparttar 147194 holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servantsrepparttar 147195 things which must shortly be done. Rev. 22:6 ... forrepparttar 147196 testimony of Jesus isrepparttar 147197 spirit of prophecy. Rev. 19:10

Born, Again!

Written by Joyce C. Lock


Continued from page 1

1.) We were saved, 2.) we are being saved, and 3.) we will be saved. We are all creations of God and all God's children; some in bondage and some free, 1 Cor. 12:14. But for all, our reservations have already been made, Peter 1:4. And, in being born again, we come to know 1.) Who God is, 2.) Whose we are, and 3.) who we are ... and, finally, defeat Satan. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us fromrepparttar love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come untorepparttar 147161 knowledge ofrepparttar 147162 truth. 1 Tim. 2:4 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust inrepparttar 147163 living God, who isrepparttar 147164 Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. 1 Tim. 4:10

Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. For this cause I bow my knees untorepparttar 147165 Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whomrepparttar 147166 whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according torepparttar 147167 riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit inrepparttar 147168 inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what isrepparttar 147169 breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to knowrepparttar 147170 love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with allrepparttar 147171 fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according torepparttar 147172 power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory inrepparttar 147173 church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. Ephes. 3:13-21 But, before discovering who we are, and even, perhaps, before we can receive it ... we need to know just how lost we really are, as sheep ... and, maybe even, seerepparttar 147174 truthfulness of filthy rags we call 'righteousness'. And then, we can welcome our final baptism ... being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, byrepparttar 147175 word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever ... To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you. 1 Peter 1:4, 23

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to passrepparttar 147176 saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 1 Cor. 15:53-54

And then ... Pentecost, restoration, Garden of Eden, Heaven on Earth, ALL things new!

And as concerning that he raised him up fromrepparttar 147177 dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give yourepparttar 147178 sure mercies of David. Acts 13:34 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. Rev. 22:12

Never discount any portion of God's word, Proverbs 30:5. If we think to see contradiction, we only understand in part and that which is perfect has not yet come. Romans 11:25
