My Home

THE STARRY SKY IS MY HOME

I’ve always looked up at the night sky with great wonderment, never really being sure about it.

BUT NOW that I’m saved and I’ve come to the knowledge of the truth from my KJV Bible rightly divided, the night sky has so much more meaning for me!

For there, I KNOW, will be my home for eternity with the Lord Jesus Christ.

You may laugh at me for “rightly dividing,” and you might think I’m crazy for being KJV only, and you could consider me a heretick for following apostle Paul.

But, one thing I can do that you can’t, when I look up at a starry sky, IS REJOICE IN HOPE OF THE GLORY OF GOD, KNOWING THAT I SHALL BE DELIVERED from the bondage of corruption, through patience and comfort of the scriptures, and am filled with all joy and peace in believing, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith, KNOWING what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought IN Christ!

FAITH “is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Which means FAITH is believing that what God has said in his written word is true. Heb 11:1; Rom 10:17; 2Cor 4:13 KJV.

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN
HAVING THIS SAME HOPE OF GOD?

If so …

.

#1 – you must FIRST be saved by being IN Christ before you die. And, God places you IN Christ the moment you have TRUSTED in God the Son Jesus Christ as your only means of salvation, AND then without doing, saying, or praying anything, have BELIEVED that Christ died for our sins, and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day. See Rom 1:16; Eph 2:8-9; 1Cor 15:1-4; Eph 1:13 KJV.

#2 – And, THEN, as a saved person you need his pure word of truth, the book of the Lord (KJV), so you can rest in the hope of God;

#3 – And, THEN, you must obey and acknowledge God’s commandment in 2Timothy 2:15 KJV, and study, rightly dividing the word of truth;

#4 – you must believe and acknowledge what Paul says in Ephesians 3:1-11; 2 Timothy 2:7; Philippians 3:17-21 KJV;

#5 – you must obey and acknowledge God’s commandment in Romans 16:25-26 and 1 Corinthians 14:37 KJV.

Foolish Hearts Darkened

Every single day I see this verse playing out before me and it breaks mine heart. I am often asked why the world is like it is, why so much hurt, pain, suffering and evil abound. I take them to Romans 1 and I point out this verse. Then I back up and go through the passage in full.

Romans 1:18-32 KJV โ€” “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

There’s no arguing with words God wrote almost 2,000 years ago, even for those who are unsaved. For those who are saved and in Christ with me then I show throughout Scripture how this is the attack of Satan, his wiles, then show them passages like Ephesians 6:10-18 to prepare them to stand and fight well armed in Christ.

Ephesians 6:10-18 KJV โ€” “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”

But if they are unsaved well what better opportunity to share the gospel of God’s glorious grace than the moment they realize just why this world is such a jacked up mess and that they can choose to stop fighting for the wrong team and get saved.

Romans 3:23 KJV โ€” For ๐Ÿ‘‰all have sinned๐Ÿ‘ˆ, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 5:12 KJV โ€” Wherefore, as๐Ÿ‘‰ by one man sin entered into the world๐Ÿ‘ˆ, and death by sin; and so๐Ÿ‘‰ death passed upon all men, ๐Ÿ‘ˆfor that all have sinned:

Romans 6:23 KJV โ€” For the ๐Ÿ‘‰wages of sin is death; ๐Ÿ‘ˆbut the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 5:15 KJV โ€” But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV โ€” For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that ๐Ÿ‘‰Christ died for our sins ๐Ÿ‘ˆaccording to the scriptures; And that he ๐Ÿ‘‰was buried, and that he rose again ๐Ÿ‘ˆthe third day according to the scriptures:

Ephesians 1:13 KJV โ€” In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also๐Ÿ‘‰ after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit ๐Ÿ‘ˆof promise,

2 Corinthians 1:22 KJV โ€” Who hath also ๐Ÿ‘‰sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Then I begin helping them see that even though they are still stuck in this hot mess of trouble here in this world, praise God their not part of it anymore.

2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV โ€”๐Ÿ‘‰ Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Ephesians 2:6 KJV โ€” “And hath raised us up together, and๐Ÿ‘‰ made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:”

Philippians 3:20 KJV โ€” “For ๐Ÿ‘‰our conversation is in heaven; ๐Ÿ‘ˆfrom whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:”

I get them grounded and edified and then I show them how to fight the good fight of faith till the day we are caught up or laid in the ground.

2 Timothy 2:15 KJV โ€” “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Just because the world’s a mess and sure ain’t gonna get no better don’t mean we gotta just watch it go to hell in a hand basket. We can walk in who we are in Christ using the tools he gives us in himself – his grace and strength and most of all His perfect unchanging ever sure word – to go out and fight. We can fight by being ready always to give an answer for the hope and peace that fills us. We can be Amabassadors and represent Christ well.

1 Timothy 6:12 KJV โ€” “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.”
