Seek The Lord JESUS... Now More Than Ever by xproducer: 2:49am On Aug 07, 2020
The world is increasingly troubled, and with death rates rising over the years for many reasons (plus the very contagious COVID-19), it is reasonable to consider one's own mortality; including why living things - particularly people - die.

"Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned" - Romans 5:12 (Also Genesis 2:17, 1 Corinthians 15:22).

"And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment" - Hebrews 9:27

Tomorrow is not guaranteed anyone, so let us seek the Lord JESUS, now more than ever because "In Him was life, and the life was the light of men." - John 1:4... He is, as He declares "the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." - John 14:6. Indeed, "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” - Acts 4:12

In short:

Read and/or listen to the Holy Bible continuously - "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" - Romans 10:17

&

"Pray without ceasing" - 1 Thessalonians 5:17, crying out to the Lord GOD for His mercy & grace. There has been, and will never be, any other way to escape damnation of the body and soul; other than through the Lord JESUS CHRIST, the Word of GOD (John 1:1, 1 John 5:7), Alpha & Omega, the Almighty! (Revelations 1:7-8 )

Run from sin! "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 6:23

"while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” - Hebrews 3:15
"The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy." - Psalm 145:8
"The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth." - Psalm 145:18

Peace!

What exactly is the essence of "seeking" Jesus Christ here?
What is the benefit of reading the Bible and praying without ceasing? Is it so as to prevent death from showing up for you when God says it is time? undecided

Seeking to receive, by God's grace, the faith to believe in Him - the Lord JESUS - "to the saving of the soul." - Hebrews 10:39

To escape inevitable judgment, and be reconciled to GOD through the work that He has done to make it possible. Ephesians 2:15-17

Seeking to receive, by God's grace, the faith to believe in Him - the Lord JESUS - "to the saving of the soul." - Hebrews 10:39
But according to John 1, the grace of God refers to the New Covenant, that is Jesus Christ Himself and the way to become His follower is through the obedience of the Commandments which He embodies.
Only through obedience is one able to receive salvation to the saving of the soul, according to Jesus Christ.

Not through our own works, but by mercy and grace of the King Eternal, GOD Himself.

"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." - Ephesians 2: 8-9

Well, Jesus Christ is the one whose commands you will need to obey and so if you feel you need to convince Him it is not your works when you are submitting to obeying His rules, go for it.
The fact remains that to be saved, obedience is the stipulation and that also requires to submitting to the cost.

Obedience is a result of salvation, not the cause of it. "For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.” So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy." - Romans 9:15-16

Of course we should obey, that is one of the main points of my initial post -but don't rely on any of your actions for salvation, rather trust in the mercy of the Lord JESUS, and the work that He has done.

. When you obey a traffic light for example, is that a result of salvation?

When you are called by your boss, is that also a result of salvation?

Stop playing games with God!

He calls for Obedience.. Give Him what He asks...not give Him the runaround believing that what you think he should have from you instead is what He should get.

He has commanded, raise and obey His commandments.

Dear friend, in coming here ( and please read my initial message)... I am merely pointing people to the Bible, and the Lord Jesus. GOD saves, GOD gives the increase.

Why do you judge me to be "playing games"?

"Who are you to judge another’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand." - Romans 14:4

Judge not, that you be not judged." - Matthew 7:1

Peace be to you!

Jesus Christ commanded that we preach exactly that which He, Jesus Christ taught, not create And teach our own swig of doctrines and rules in his name.

Go back and study the gospel of Jesus Christ to understand how Jesus Christ's own words are against what you posted.
