MORNINGTIME 2401
 
FEAR NONE OF THOSE THINGS WHICH THOU SHALT SUFFER: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: BE THOU FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH, and I will give thee a crown of life. Revelation 2:10. BUT THE FEARFUL, AND UNBELIEVING, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.    Revelation 21:8. To be Faithful unto death means to be Faithful every day, for the rest of your life. Being Faithful here on earth stops with our death, which is a specific event with a definite stopping point. Our death here on earth is just a stopping point for the fleshly body we carry around. And when death takes the body, the spirit of man, (his soul), will live forever in either Heaven, or Hell. So all Christ is asking for is for Him to have legal right to our spirit here on this side, and on the other side too. This way, we are His and He gets to take care of us any way He wants to, and call us home any time He wants to. That way, we are His and He has all our rights in His back pocket. Now, as a bond servant, all our rights are His INCLUDING the right to complain about anything. Now, with all our rights now in Christ we can't complain about ANY of "those things" coming soon to a church near you. With no right to complain, Christ is free to shape world events FOR OUR GOOD, and for His Glory in front of a very dis-believing world as we WILLINGLY follow Christ even into the very jaws of death, because we have no fear of death as we Walk FULLY in His Life. Again, we are the examples of Life with NO FEAR, to a dead and dying world. How can we preach "no fear" when we ourselves fear many things? Christ will have none of that on His Team. That's why, if we are His, we'll have no place in and for, Fear. Christ crushes Fear when we are In Him and with NO FEAR, we WILL, Be Blessed.
