Word for the Week...JUNE 19 ---25 / 2006

"Blessed are they that do His commandments,that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gate into the city."

To love God is to obey Him, because Faith works by love and faith and obedience go hand in hand. Knowledge of God must be applied in our experience, then the blessing will come. In this last chapter of the book of Revelation, we see that it is only those who have committed themselves wholeheartedly to the Will of God, who enter in to eternal bliss.Many are outside...(v.15). It is no suprise to God, that countless millions think they are secure, because they regularly frequent a particular place at certain times of the week ! Whilst it is good to 'not forsake gathering together' ...(Heb.10:24,25), we must not allow this practice to take the place of our first priority...maintaining fellowship with The Lord. (Matt.7:21,22). It is not Where we meet, but Who we meet that ultimately matters ! Let us make sure of our calling and election and seek those things that are above...(Col. 3:1ff) The tree of Life Is not the Tree of Knowledge ! Both Were in The Garden of Eden (Gen.2:9) and Adam and Eve ate from the latter. Thus, they fell and sinned. But Praise God for the Tree of Life...Jesus Christ our Lord...Who Became sin for us, that we might become the Righteousnessof God In Him...(2 Cor.5:21).  

May The Lord Bless you..
