MORNINGTIME 2670
 
Whereby are given unto us EXCEEDING GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.  For if these things be in you, AND ABOUND, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the KNOWLEDGE OF our Lord JESUS CHRIST. BUT HE THAT LACKETH THESE THINGS is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: FOR IF YE DO THESE THINGS, ye shall never fall:  For so an entrance, (a door), shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:4-11. The eyes of the world are blind to these most marvellous verses of encouragement and promise. But then, that's the whole idea. Satan wants to keep everyone he can blinded to the Truth so that they will go to Hell when they die. (Read carefully). That's actually OK with God because He won't make anyone want to go to Heaven to sit at the feet of Christ to Praise, Honor, and Glorify Him for all of eternity. Those that Satan thinks he's tricked into turning their backs to the Lord, actually, by their own choice, turned their backs to Christ long before Satan got ahold of them. Satan can only try to influence a person's thinking. He can't make anyone do anything. It's ALL personal choice by each and every person. Now the GOoD news. ANYONE, searching for The Truth, aka Christ, WILL find Him. Christ knows ALL His sheep, and not one will be lost. PS, the Lord Desires that NONE would Perish in Hell, but again, He won't make anyone want Christ. Please, seek Christ, and, Be Blessed.
