MORNINGTIME 3271 
 
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. John 3:16. Consider this, Christ's Love for sinful man is so Great, He died in our place that we may escape eternal damnation, if we would but Follow Him, ON HIS TERMS. And to do that, He has made us VICTORIOUS through Christ, having given us His Holy Spirit to teach us, lead us, and direct our path ALL the day long. Christ will never leave us or forsake us.  He has given us the 5-fold ministry of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers to Grow us in Christ. He has given us the 9 Gifts of the Holy Spirit, being the Word of Wisdom, the Word of Knowledge, Faith, the Gifts of Healing, the working of Miracles, Prophecy, Discerning of spirits, Divers kinds of Tongues, and Interpretation of Tongues. These Gifts are given by the Holy Spirit as He decides. One, or more to all who ask, all as He decides. And then there are the Fruits of the Spirit. And these are Love, Joy Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, and Temperance, against such there is no law. Have you noticed, Faith is a Gift AND a Fruit of the Holy Spirit? Does that make it DOUBLY important? As if once wasn’t enough, this one is twice? Growing in CHRISTLIKENESS is a continually Growing event. And with all these things FOR YOU, who and what can be against you? Well yes, the whole world can be against you, BUT CHRIST HAS ALREADY GAINED THE VICTORY OVER THE WORLD AND EVERYTHING IN IT. Therefore, you have NO RIGHT to fear any thing or any one, you have no right to failure, and you have no right to fall for any trap, wile, or way of the enemy. And to be even more clear here, the enemy is Satan, self, flesh, and the old man nature, AND THEY ARE ALL DEFEATED BY CHRIST. All this should be a REAL Encouragement to you. If you will but just Trust Christ and His Word, by Faith, you WILL, Be Blessed.
