Take Strength from the Grace of God, part 11….

 

Take Strength from the Grace of God, part 11… (Thursday, March 22nd)

2 Timothy 2:9b – 13……the word of God is not imprisoned. 10 For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus [and] with [it] eternal (age-enduring kingdom) glory. 11 It is a trustworthy statement: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him; 12 If we endure, we shall also reign with Him; If we deny Him, He also will deny us; 13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful; for He cannot deny Himself.

The Word of God is the Word of the Kingdom

Lu 8:10a …And He said, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, …..

11 “Now the parable is this: the seed is the word of God.

Called to Take Hold of Life in the Coming Age

1Ti 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Called Unto His Kingdom and Glory

1Th 2:12..so that you may walk in a manner worthy of the God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.

Salvation Obtained is in the Coming Age

2Timothy 2:10 For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen (called out of the called), that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus [and] with [it] eternal (age-enduring kingdom) glory

The Word of God (Kingdom) must be Believed and Received

1Th 2:13 ¶ For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. (KJV)

Faith by the Word of God

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (KJV)

Those of you who have read down this far and are able to understand (put together) the above passages, can see that the word of the coming kingdom of our Lord is synonymous with the Word of God. I’ve written about that many times on this blog and it is important to know, receive, and believe this Word of the Kingdom because it can be denied. Not receiving this Word will keep you from faith! It takes faith to please God. Denying this Word will enact our Lord’s denial of you entering this coming Age and all the glory and rewards of that Age. He MUST remain faithful to His Own Word!

Believing, receiving, and living this Word of Faith – Word of God – Word of the coming Kingdom – will bring persecutions, trials, and sufferings – all meant as sacrifices of our self-life; therefore, the admonition of endurance – to the end.

You may want to read again the whole passage of 2 Timothy 2:1-13 again.

He remains faithful; for He cannot deny Himself.

Dear ones, Take Strength from the Grace of God enabling your endurance.
