MORNINGTIME 2461
 
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:1-5. These verses are full of, "if we this, than we that", meaning, "If we Love God, we keep His Commandments", "If we keep His Commandments than we Love God". This is a God Blessed and Stamped  short list of Promises and Commands of the Believer. This covers from the very start, to the very end, of the Believers Life. IF YOU LOVE GOD, YOU WILL LOVE CHRIST, YOU WILL LOVE THE BELIEVERS, YOU WILL KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS, YOU WILL HAVE FAITH THAT WILL TOTALLY OVERCOME THE WORLD AND ALL ITS WORLDLINESS. PERIOD. That's the Believers Life from the day they are Born Again, to the day they die and Go Home to be with Christ. Much of this list you will Grow in as you Mature into CHRISTLIKENESS, for example, Faith starts out as small as a grain of mustard seed, and grows to Believe EVERYTHING God says. We keep one Commandment, then two, then 3, then all of them. We Love Christ, then our family, then our neighbors, then all who walk the earth. Yes, we will even Love our Persecutors enough to tell them of Christ's Great Love to even them. This is NOT a list of suggestions, these are Commandments, these are Required Life Activities we WILL Grow In, Joyfully, Gladly, and Obediently, IF we are Followers of Christ. Leave worldliness, Grow in CHRISTLIKENESS, and you will Naturally grow in Holiness, Righteousness, and Purity. What a Way to Conquer self, flesh, and the old man nature, into the Fullness of Christ, In Christ, to, Be Blessed.
