"So Jesus said to them, You will have the Light only a little while longer. Walk while you have the Light [keep on living by it], so that darkness may not overtake and overcome you. He who walks about in the dark does not know where he goes [he is drifting]. While you have the Light, believe in the Light [have faith in it, hold to it, rely on it], that you may become sons of the Light and be filled with Light. Jesus said these things, and then He went away and hid Himself from them [was lost to their view]." (John 12:35-36 amp)

Faith in the death of Jesus Christ Crucified on the Cross of Calvary and His resurrection is our only escape route/total-health in this time and for all eternity:
"Just as Moses lifted up the [bronze] serpent in the desert [on a pole], so must the Son of Man be lifted up [on the cross], 15 so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life [after physical death, and will actually live forever].
16 “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] [a]only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge and condemn the world [that is, to initiate the final judgment of the world], but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Whoever believes and has decided to trust in Him [as personal Savior and Lord] is not judged [for this one, there is no judgment, no rejection, no condemnation]; but the one who does not believe [and has decided to reject Him as personal Savior and Lord] is judged already [that one has been convicted and sentenced], because he has not believed and trusted in the name of the [One and] only begotten Son of God [the One who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, the One who alone can save him]." (John 3:14-18 amp)

If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just [true to His own nature and promises], and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose]. (1 John 1:9 amp)

"On God my salvation and my glory rest; He is my rock of [unyielding] strength, my refuge is in God." (Psalm 62:7 amp)

When you encounter hard-verses that you find difficult to *accept* in the Scriptures tell the Holy Spirit to help you *to believe it*.......
Do not just say, it is hard to believe this one and *give it up*
1 John 2:6 (AMP)
"whoever says he lives in Christ [that is, whoever says he has accepted Him as God and Savior] ought [as a moral obligation] to walk and conduct himself just as He walked and conducted Himself."
Matthew 14:28-30 (AMP)
"Peter replied to Him, “Lord, if it is [really] You, command me to come to You on the water.” 29 He said, “Come!” So Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw [the effects of] the wind, he was frightened, and he began to sink, and he cried out, “Lord, save me!"
There is no *accumulated faith*, every second as long as you live on earth, you have to *re-affirm, re-confess* your faith in Jesus Christ Crucified else you are already sinking in *faithlessness*
Those who worship the Father, will worship in spirit and in truth...(John 4:23-24)
What do you believe in your mind about Jesus Christ Crucified now ? (spirit-worship of John 4:23-24)
How does your actions, decisions, thoughts, desires, imaginations, lifestyle, engagements currently manifest or agree with what you claim to believe about Jesus Christ Crucified now ? (truth/tangible-worship of John 4:23-24)

"For there is [only] one God, and [only] one Mediator between God and mankind, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom [a substitutionary sacrifice to atone] for all, the testimony given at the right and proper time." (1 Timothy 2:5-6 amp)

"Simon Peter answered, Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words (the message) of eternal life. And we have learned to believe and trust, and [more] we have come to know [surely] that You are the Holy One of God, the Christ (the Anointed One), the Son of the living God." (John 6:68-69 amp)

"He made Christ who knew no sin to [judicially] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious loving-mercy]."
(2 Corinthians 5:21 amp)

"So His brothers said to Him, “Leave here and go to Judea, so that Your disciples [there] may also see the works that You do. 4 No one does anything in secret when he wants to be known publicly. If You [must] do these things, show Yourself openly to the world and make Yourself known!” 5 For not even His brothers believed in Him. 6 So Jesus said to them, “My time has not yet come; but any time is right for you. 7 The world cannot hate you [since you are part of it], but it does hate Me because I denounce it and testify that its deeds are evil. 8 Go up to the feast yourselves. I am not going up to this feast because My time has not yet fully come.” 9 Having said these things to them, He stayed behind in Galilee." (John 7:3-9 amp)
Do not allow your own emotions, circumstances of life, trials, this self-isolation, videos/messages of this virus-pandemic or even people's influence around you to make you desire or engage in what is not pleasing to the Holy Spirit though it might be good or appears compassionate.
Seek the mercy, grace, love and revelation of the Holy Spirit about each wave-of-thought, decision or engagement to avoid *regrets and the consequences of faithlessness*
Great Grace Brethren!!!
|Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 2:30pm On Mar 29|
Do not call sinfulness an opportunity in this self-isolation period rather seek to please the Lord Jesus Christ Crucified in your thoughts, words, deeds, desires, imaginations, decisions, movies, pictures, discussions, engagements e.t.c in this time...
Ephesians 5:10 (GNT)
"Try to learn what pleases the Lord."
1 Corinthians 10:23
"All things are lawful [that is, morally legitimate, permissible], but not all things are beneficial or advantageous. All things are lawful, but not all things are constructive [to character] and edifying [to spiritual life]."
Philippians 4:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)
"Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]."

Hebrews 2:14-15 Amplified Bible (AMP)
14 Therefore, since [these His] children share in flesh and blood [the physical nature of mankind], He Himself in a similar manner also shared in the same [physical nature, but without sin], so that through [experiencing] death He might make powerless (ineffective, impotent) him who had the power of death—that is, the devil— 15 and [that He] might free all those who through [the haunting] fear of death were held in slavery throughout their lives.
